Young Conservative Group Creates “Watchlist” for Educators Accused of “Leftist Propaganda”
The mission of Professor Watchlist is to expose and document college professors who discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.
So how does an educator merit inclusion on a list like this? A story in yesterday’s New York Times provides one example:
One of the instructors listed, Joan Neuberger, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin who teaches Russian history, was described on the site as leading a petition to bar students who carry concealed weapons from entering classrooms “in violation of Texas law.”.
An associate journalism professor at the University of Kansas was reportedly included in the list for posting a tweet critical of the NRA after the 2013 Navy Yard shooting that left 13 people dead.
As a Jew who has lived a significant percentage of his life in Germany, I try very hard not to go “Godwin”. Having said that, there is no question in my mind: this is what fascism looks like.
Look for a LOT more of this kind of thing in the years to come.
