You might have thought that the thought police on campus are leftists who phone in bomb threats, assault speakers and set buildings on fire. But please allow George Ciccariello-Maher to correct you.
George Ciccariello-Maher / Washington Post: - "Conservatives are the real campus thought police squashing academic freedom."
An admitted “actual communist,” the radical political theorist tweeted on Christmas Eve evening “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide.”
And also there was the time...
Over a year ago in response to a South Carolina school resource officer’s handling of a defiant student, Ciccariello-Maher had tweeted the officer should be “put up against a wall” and then done “like Old Yeller.”
So, yes. Conservatives are the real campus speech police objecting to genocide and calls to kill people. Don't they understand what academic freedom means?
Social justice blog WaPo certainly does.
