Trump’s Victory Has Emboldened Campus Critics of Political Correctness

Trump’s Victory Has Emboldened Campus Critics of Political Correctness

Elections have consequences.

It looks like the pendulum is already swinging back in the opposite direction on some college campuses.

The American Interest reports:

Right-Wing Inquisitors on Campus

Donald Trump’s upset victory has been hailed by his supporters as an unprecedented repudiation of politically correct ideology on college campuses. For those of us who think that campus victim culture has gone off the rails, this is a good thing. But it also may have emboldened anti-PC forces in higher education to overreach and take illiberal steps of their own. An example, from Inside Higher Education:

A new website is asking students and others to “expose and document” professors who “discriminate against conservative students, promote anti-American values and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.”

The site, called Professor Watchlist, is not without precedent — predecessors include the now-defunct, which logged accounts of alleged bias in the classroom. There’s also David Horowitz’s 2006 book, The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America. But such efforts arguably have new meaning in an era of talk about registering certain social groups and concerns about free speech.
