A university student is under investigation for blowing the whistle on a hack “professor” who believes conservative students are “evil” – her words – and is acting on the belief:
Siena College student Zack Butler is currently under investigation for allegedly violating the school’s code of conduct and could face punishments as severe as expulsion.
His crime? Posting copies of an email sent March 20 by philosophy professor Jennifer McErlean to an alumnus expressing her resentment toward conservative students and a free speech event they’re set to host next week, a Turning Point USA conference called “Let Freedom Ring” that will feature a variety of prominent conservative movers and shakers.
In the email, McErlean decried conservative students as “evil,” noting she quit a civil discourse committee because working with conservative students was making her “miserable,” according to a copy of the email obtained by The College Fix.She also let the alumnus know that her quitting this committee has freed her up to protest the “Let Freedom Ring” event.
Sounds like she could fit in at any college or university in the Twin Cities.
However, Mr. Butler is my hero for the day:
Two days after the email was sent, Butler and a friend posted around 600 copies of the email around campus.
“As a conservative student, I was bothered not only by the email but also the response, or lack there of, by the administration and felt something had to be done,” Butler said in a Facebook post. He added their goal wasn’t to offend anyone or to gain attention, but simply to “keep the dialogue going.”
Mr. Butler still has that idealism that comes with youth.
Of course, Big Left wants no “dialogue” – on academia any more than on guns, abortion, the welfare state, political correctness, or anything else. They want a monologue; they talk, and you sit, handcuffed to the chair, and listen. Gagged, if need be.
