I know we just blogged about a stupid professor who charged a student who disagreed with her in class with “harassment”, but this is a completely different case.
Here is the story from Campus Reform.
A Texas State University history professor called the employers of at least two conservatives, one a current student, in retribution over a political disagreement on Facebook.
Elizabeth Bishop, who is allegedly rumored to become the next dean of the College of Liberal Arts, made phone calls to employers and a university department in an attempt to punish the two conservatives for daring to disagree with her in a Facebook discussion.
The Facebook status in question was initially posted by Colton Duncan, the student body vice president, but was apparently later removed by Facebook for “violating community standards.”
Duncan decried Texas State’s apparent double standard in allowing radical communist Angela Davis to speak on campus, calling her an “American terrorist,” but not allowing the College Republicans to hold a Women’s Empowerment Summit.
The status soon developed into a debate over the relative merits of capitalism and communism, where Alexander Morrissette, an employee of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, and Bishop began commenting at each other.
I would not recommend debating anything with a non-STEM professor who teaches at a secular college / university. It doesn’t matter where you debate or what you debate, these people have no experience at hearing points of view different from their own. They don’t debate with evidence, they just call you names and then try to silence you.
Here’s how this professor came after the student who disagreed with her:
Their debate continued in relatively the same vein, but things escalated when the Texas Public Policy Foundation received a call from Bishop the next day asking if Morrissette was one of its employees.
Bishop contended in the call that Morrissette had made a disparaging Facebook post about her, but refused to provide details on what the post said. The employee who answered the call said she would talk to Morrissette about his Facebook habits, and Bishop hung up the phone shortly thereafter.
Seemingly unsatisfied with the Foundation’s response, as Morrissette said they “laughed the ordeal off,” Bishop set her sights on an anonymous Texas State student who had “liked” several of Morrissette’s comments.
Bishop allegedly called the university department where the student works and requested they investigate her and her “associates” for “hate speech,” and further demanded that the student be removed from her leadership positions on campus.
When Morrissette heard of this development, he said it was “worse…that she levied her threats at students who are still directly subjected to her authority on campus.”
Imagine that you had an employer who did take action against you, and you were the sole provider for your wife and children! Where would you be without a job in this economy? There are also a lot of cases where the left moves on from trying to coerce you to vandalism, assault and even domestic terrorism.
It’s very important to understand that secular leftist professors – at least non-STEM professors at secular campuses – are not capable of critical thinking or tolerating different points of view. You just have to look at them as unreasoning barbarians, and avoid saying or doing anything that can provoke their anti-intellectual rage against you.
If you’re going to go to college or university, be sure and do and do a STEM degree. Not only do rigorous STEM degrees keep out the idiots, but you can also get a job on the other end of it. It doesn’t matter if you like STEM or not, it’s a matter of not throwing away your money to ignorant fascists like this professor.
