There’s a new database students can use to expose professors who use their platform to push their radical left-wing ideas on students.
Illinois-based Turning Point USA has launched The Professor Watchlist to “expose and document college professors who discriminate against conservative students.”
According to TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk:
Professor Watchlist is intended to expose, document, and organize radical professors across the country who have been engaged in anti-American and leftist behavior in their classes. We believe these professors have a right to say whatever they wish, but we feel a responsibility to students, alumni, and parents to expose the radicalism that has institutionalizes our colleges and universities.
It’s about time.
Paranoid left-winger Rebecca Schuman howls at Slate that the new database is “[a]bjectly terrifying.”
Sounding a little like a direct mail letter writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center, Schuman sees Nazis under every bed.
“This list watches over us at a dark turning point, poised to inflame the tinder-dry, gasoline-soaked pitchforks of a mob just stepping into the light.”
A little flowery and very tedious.
