If you have followed this story, you know that Professor Peter Boghossian is being punished for the crime of exposing the insanity of left-wing academia. Back story here.

The College Fix reports:

Portland State bans professor from research for getting ‘grievance studies’ hoaxes published

He brought “rape culture” in dog parks to the masses. The “research” may have been among his last published as a Portland State University professor.

Philosopher Peter Boghossian has been banned from both human-subjects and sponsored research by the public university, owing to his participation in a “grievance studies” project with two other academics, according to a PSU letter he posted Tuesday.

Along with Areo editor-in-chief Helen Pluckrose and mathematician James Lindsay, Boghossian got seven hoax academic papers accepted by prestigious peer-reviewed journals, four of those published.

When they admitted to the stunt, they claimed the project was intended to “reboot the conversation” on topics such as gender, race and sexuality.

Portland State had already determined that the untenured Boghossian had violated rules on human-subjects research by not getting permission to submit hoax research papers to journal reviewers, who were “human subjects” in the university’s view.

Philosopher Peter Boghossian has been banned from both human-subjects and sponsored research by the public university, owing to his participation in a “grievance studies” project with two other academics, according to a PSU letter he posted Tuesday.

Instead of “Publish or Perish,” Portland State’s policy is “Publish only what we like or shut up.”

He basically proved that the Journal of Irreproducible Results is “real.”

Those who took this decision fail to realise that they too are human research subjects.

With hindsight, the hoaxers could, tongue-in-cheek, have anonymised the editors in their publication of the results.

Portland State is Oregon’s version of Evergreen State. They are both leftist training camps where students don’t learn anything useful, but they learn to listen to their “feelings.” And their “feelings” are constrained to those that are supported by the schools’ left-wing indoctrination.

PSU is determined to fire Peter Boghossian, and they are grasping for a legal method to do it. He is an independent thinker, and that scares them. I hope that a much better-quality school pick him up and put him a free-thinking environment where he will flourish. If I were a college president (God forbid), I would soon be on the telephone to invite Boghossian for an interview.
