ENDORSING THE ACADEMIC BILL OF RIGHTS
Affirmative action for conservative would-be profs ? No. A procedural check on the rampant PC politicization of hiring, tenure, free speech, teaching, student discipline and employee relations at our nation's universities. I've been watching events like those here
for at least a decade, long enough to conclude that this Left-wing harrassment and censorship of opposing viewpoints is systemic in our nation's universities. Not that we should be surprised really - when you fill an educational bureaucracy with folks who adhere to socialist ( not liberal) authoritarian ideas you can expect that they will act on those inclinations wherever academic administrivia allows them to execute petty power plays.
Universities exist to allow unrestricted inquiry into ideas - it's time to help the nation's college administrators recall their raison d'etre and get out of the business of policing attitudes.
