They’ve been coming for women, minorities, and immigrants, so you just knew they get around to college professors as enemies of the state. A group called “Turning Point USA” has created the Professor Watch List, which includes a list
to expose and document college professors who discriminate against conservative students, promote anti-American values, and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom (doesn’t that sound lovely and vaguely familiar?), and also includes a form to turn in suspected leftists. It’s like a McCarthyite wet dream.
One problem: I’m not on the list. In fact, nobody at Morris is on the list. I fear our problem is that we’re such a little sanctuary of progressive thought that we’ve got a shortage of far right wing rats. I must make my case for being included on the list.
I know there are acolytes of Turning Point USA on campus because someone around here keeps putting up their stupid pro-capitalism posters
and their idiotic pamphlets. Did you know college professors want to challenge your beliefs and make you question the existence of God? That sounds exactly like me. Also, I scowl and roll my eyes every time I pass one of their inane
BIG GOVERNMENT SUCKSposters. That’s got to be at least a misdemeanor in the TPUSA world.
I wrote a post saying the Morris North Star, the alt-right rag, ought to be thrown off campus for its disgusting racism: clearly, I’m totally against free speech.
The Morris North Star has already threatened to sue me. They had the police pick me up and read me my Miranda rights, so we’re already well on our way to their dream police state.
Look at that. I didn’t even have to get into the Cracker Incident.
I hope this omission can be corrected rapidly. If I am listed, I can also rat out virtually all of my colleagues, too, who are all raging liberals (OK, with a few exceptions). I’d like to see my university more prominently acknowledged on a right-wing enemies list.
