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.

    In solidarity with the Notre Dame professors, and as a ND alum, (MA, Philosophy, 1979), please, please, please add my name to your Watch List. I want to also be counted among those who are faithful to Christ and his Kingdom!

  • Summoning the ghosts of McCarthyism and Nazism are you? Your efforts will prove futile as education and enlightenment will extinguish your agenda. I stand in solidarity with those who may end up on your list.

      Good grief, what on earth are you on about.
      Calling out some deranged Marxists espousing white genocide is hardly “McCarthyism and Nazism”, but then again in your world I suspect that that, along with calling for “pigs” to be burnt is perfectly acceptable.
      Please let me know at which “seat of learning” you spew out your bile so that I can ensure that my offspring can avoid you like the plague.

    looking forward to be on your list soon!

          I detect a refreshing streak of self-deprecating humour.
          Not your average one-dimensional, dullard academic with head up one’s own arse then.

    Here is a link to over 2200 professors who would like to have their names added to the list. The integrity of the academy depends on academic freedom. You may think this is just information for conservative students, but it is McCarthyism, blacklisting, which was a very dark and regrettable time in our nation and for education. https://www.freeacademics.net

    Are you also making a list of conservative professors that discriminate against liberal students?
    Of course not.
    so that means you can only be…
    a “Not See”

        So conservatives never are ruthless when confronted by others with a different viewpoint. Only Liberals do that.
        OK… thanks for enlightening me on the “truth”
