Introducing the Professor Watchlist

Tracking tenured campus radicals


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.
