  • Scholars say tenured professors are rarely fired

    The University of Colorado has fired two tenured professors in the history of the Boulder campus. And Ward Churchill, if dismissed, would be the first to be fired because of alleged research misconduct. Scholars say it's more common at universities that unpopular professors are squeezed out — or given early-retirement settlements — rather than fired. The protection of tenure can make outright job termination a costly and lengthy battle. Richard Berthold, a former University of New Mexico professor, retired two years after he was censured for telling his class on Sept. 11, 2001: "Anyone who blows up the Pentagon gets...

    Here are a few of the remarks posted by NKU students about Dr. Sally Jacobson. I think you'll see a pattern: The topic was supposed to be womens writing which I learned a great deal about, but it took her forever to get into the actual topic. The class was fun even with the sexual humor. She let us have snacks,it was during dinner time. She graded papers so harsh even the writing center told me I would have problems, but tests were a breeze. she is a ****en idiot. do not, i repeat, do not take her I had...

    Highland Heights, KY -- A Northern Kentucky University professor who destroyed a pro-life display against abortion and encouraged her students to vandalize it as well is defending her actions. Dr. Sally Jacobsen, a British literature professor, called the display "silly" and said her free speech rights allowed her and others to trash the display. As LifeNews.com reported on Thursday, Jacobson and several students from her class vandalized a pro-life display of hundreds of crosses that the campus pro-life group had set up earlier in the week. The professor and her students were caught on camera and seen by other witnesses...

    Time magazine once called author David Horowitz "a clear and ruthless thinker. What he says has an indignant sanity about it." n it he offers "indignant sanity" as he draws blazing portraits of some of the worst leftist propagandists now infesting America's colleges and universities. Those unfamiliar with the extent to which the nation's campuses are being held captive by left-wing radicals will find his revelations shocking. He goes about the task of unmasking the most virulent of academic terrorists who brook no dissent from their student victims. "More than 90 percent of the professors profiled in this text have...

    Nine of the "101 Most Dangerous Academics in America" teach at Columbia University, according to a new book by conservative activist David Horowitz. The book, "The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America," published by Regnery, profiles 101 professors from campuses across the country. "Columbia is a national scandal," Mr. Horowitz told The New York Sun in a telephone interview. "That a serious, top-tier university ... is an ideological fortress is an emblem of the utter debasement of the academic endeavor." His book lists several professors from the university's department of Middle East and Asian languages and cultures, including...

    The Professors: The 101 most dangerous academics in America by David Horowitz Coming to a Campus Near You: Terrorists, racists, and communists— you know them as The Professors. We all know that left-wing radicals from the 1960s have hung around academia and hired people like themselves. But if you thought they were all harmless, antiquated hippies, you’d be wrong. Today’s radical academics aren’t the exception—they’re legion. And far from being harmless, they spew violent anti-Americanism, preach anti-Semitism, and cheer on the killing of American soldiers and civilians—all the while collecting tax dollars and tuition fees to indoctrinate our children.

    The assumption that America's campuses are impenetrable bastions of liberalism--where left-leaning faculty predominate, progressive student activism flourishes and conservatism is fiercely marginalized--still rules the day.

    LOS ANGELES, Jan. 23 - A 24-year-old conservative alumnus who announced earlier this month that he planned to pay students at the University of California, Los Angeles, to tape-record the lectures of left-leaning professors backed down after U.C.L.A. officials informed him on Monday that he would be violating school policy. The alumnus, Andrew Jones, said he abandoned the plan to save his student supporters from possible legal action by the university, even though he believed they would be engaged in a "newsgathering" effort protected by the First Amendment. Mr. Jones says he is confident that students will volunteer to tape...

    An independent alumni association at the University of California-Los Angeles has offered rewards of up to $100 for students willing to out politically biased professors. Founded by Andrew Jones, a 2003 graduate of the public university, the Bruin Alumni Association has been formed to curb “an exploding crisis of political radicalism on campus” which is “endangering the very core of UCLA — the undergraduate experience,” according to the association’s website. Jones, on the group’s website, says he experienced “political harassment, violence, intimidation and biased teaching” during his time at UCLA, adding his experience is “entirely typical for any student who...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A conservative alumni group dedicated to "exposing the most radical professors" at the University of California at Los Angeles is offering to pay students $100 to record classroom lectures of suspect faculty. The Web site of the Bruin Alumni Association also includes a "Dirty Thirty" list of professors considered by the group to be the most extreme left-wing members of the UCLA faculty, as well as profiles on their political activities and writings. UCLA Chancellor Albert Carnesale on Thursday denounced the campaign as "reprehensible," and school officials warned that selling or distributing recordings of classroom lectures...

    A fledgling alumni group headed by a former campus Republican leader is offering students payments of up to $100 per class to provide information on instructors who are "abusive, one-sided or off-topic" in advocating political ideologies. The year-old Bruin Alumni Assn. says its "Exposing UCLA's Radical Professors" initiative takes aim at faculty "actively proselytizing their extreme views in the classroom, whether or not the commentary is relevant to the class topic." Although the group says it is concerned about radical professors of any political stripe, it has named an initial "Dirty 30" of teachers it identifies with left-wing or liberal...

    The bitter truth, as we feast on the bounty of the empire -Our myth of Thanksgiving warps a history of genocide ONE indication of moral and intellectual progress in the United States would be the replacement of Thanksgiving Day with a National Day of Atonement. Indigenous people have offered such a model; since 1970 they have marked the fourth Thursday of November as a Day of Mourning in a spiritual/political ceremony on Coles Hill overlooking Plymouth Rock, one of the early sites of the European invasion of the Americas. But the thought of changing this white-supremacist holiday is hard to...

    Michigan Times ^ | 11-13-05 | Page W. H. Brousseau IV
    Three female Michigan State University professors studied the magazine "Traditional Bowhunter," and concluded that hunting is a form of sexual violence with animals substituted for women. They describe hunting as, "erotic heterosexual predation, sadomasochism, restraint for aggressive sexual energy, and allied with the abuse of women." I think I need to take up bowhunting. The article entitled, "Animals, Women and Weapons: Blurred Sexual Boundaries in the Discourse of Sport Hunting" was published by the Society & Animals Forum. The genesis of the article was the 2003 video "Hunting for Bambi," which reached national attention that year when many news-outlets reported...

    Oh, that KC Johnson. He's always getting into hot water. Of course, that may have something to do with the fact that the administration at Brooklyn College of The City University of New York keeps trying to bring the water to a full rolling boil, hoping he'll jump out. Well, perhaps he should. He deserves better, and his institution doesn't deserve to keep him. But his students, who on the evidence are unlikely to encounter many other faculty members who exemplify the academic virtues of free inquiry and principled disagreement, need him. Robert KC Johnson is a tenured professor of...
