Why is the left afraid of free thought and speech? Can you imagine requiring this guy to have psychotherapy for thinking something different than what he thinks?
Yet examples abound in academia that if you don't toe their line, you suffer.
Pure and utter projection. This guy is no more the 'left' than raving Fallwell is the 'right'.
You have to start with the normal excercise of questioning things like the articles credibility. I see nothing in that but the supposed tirade of a student with absolutely no substantiation of the events and definitely no attempt to look at the other side. My wife is a professor at the college level and I can guarantee you that in less than 3 years of teaching she's had absolutely wild accusations thrown at her by students in her class.
If this happened this way, then some raving lunatic is teaching college. It's not an indication of any problem larger than that. Just as LABF's rantings are getting more and more stupid, so is this type of drivel.
