Liberal college professors are WAY out of control
One such victim of this left-wing neo-Stalinism is Southern Illinois University history professor Jonathan Bean.
Professor Bean describes himself as a libertarian, but his colleagues characterize him as a conservative or right-winger. Bean was the faculty adviser to the Republican and Libertarian student groups at the university. A prize-winning author, Bean was named the College of Liberal Arts Teacher of the Year in 2004.
On April 11, 2005, six professors at Southern Illinois University published a letter in the school paper condemning him for handing out ''racist propaganda" in his American history classes.
The offending tract, which Bean had in a class that dealt with the civil rights movement and racial tensions in that era, was an article from the conservative publication FrontPageMagazine.com about ''the Zebra Killings" -- racially-motivated murders of whites in the San Francisco Bay area in 1972-74 by several black extremists linked to the Nation of Islam. The James Lubinskas article argued that black-on-white hate crimes deserve more recognition.
A university dean canceled Bean's classroom discussion sections for the week. Two of the three teaching assistants resigned, leaving the course in a shambles, according to the Globe.
Unfortunately, the aforementioned incident is quite commonplace on American university campuses, with the bias usually aimed at conservatives and conservative positions. It is, we believe, a crying shame.
