Let’s review how the American Democrat Left regards political disagreement:
- If someone votes the wrong way, it’s OK to destroy their business.
- If someone holds the wrong view on gay marriage, it’s okay to use the power of the state to destroy their business.
- If someone holds the wrong view on gay marriage, it’s okay to destroy their career.
- If a professor mocks a social justice wanker, they will try and destroy his career.*
It’s like Obama whining yesterday that the reason Hillary lost is because people were able to watch FoxNews in bars and restaurants. (Which shows how little time he spends in bars and restaurants outside the bubble.) Owning 99% of the media isn’t enough, apparently; the left must have all of it or it can’t succeed. Is the Democrat Left’s political philosophy so fragile that not even one voice of dissent can be permitted to question it?
So, how does the left react when the other side plays a similar game and creates a website that simply calls out radical far left professors for bias, promoting leftist politics in the classroom, and discriminating against conservative students? How do professors who profess that their goal is for their students to “become conceptually unhinged, to leave my classes discontented and maladjusted” respond when their agenda is exposed to the world?
How do cockroaches react when you turn on the bathroom light.** The New York Times, Slate, and other elements of the Democrat-Media Complex are attacking the site, and the academic left is having full-on the vapors.
Robert Jensen, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin, also expressed his feelings on being included on the list for teaching students that “we won’t end men’s violence against women if we do not address the toxic notions about masculinity in patriarchy … rooted in control, conquest, aggression.”
“It would be easier to dismiss this rather silly project if the United States had not just elected a president who shouts over attempts at rational discourse and reactionary majorities in both houses of Congress,” writes Jensen. “I’m a tenured full professor (and white, male, and a U.S. citizen by birth) and am not worried. But, even though the group behind the watchlist has no formal power over me or my university, the attempt at bullying professors — no matter how weakly supported — may well inhibit professors without my security and privilege.”
“Robert Jensen” was a name I thought I had heard before. He’s a journalism professor capable of writing a 3,800 word polemic that is almost unreadable and tells you nothing except that he hates the world. In addition to his fashionable hatred of the The Patriarchy and “toxic masculinity,” He is a self-avowed radical socialist who says that Thanksgiving is a celebration of White Supremacy.
Why is he so afraid of having his radical left views outed? Perhaps he is afraid that someone, somewhere, somehow might destroy his career and livelihood for holding the wrong political beliefs.
* Love this quote: “Her claims to be a ‘queer Muslim’ are probably part of an act designed to fit into as many victim categories as humanly possible,” Adams elaborates. “Sometimes I wonder whether LGBT stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Thespian. So much drama, so few letters in the alphabet.”
** So, I’m told, I’ve never actually had to deal with cockroaches. Scorpions, yes. Stink bugs, yes, but never Cucarachas.
