Scary article about teachers and professors being singled out based on whether they’re liberal:
You can see this happening in other ways as well, all basically coming from the conservative camp. Teachers are afraid to use the word “Evolution” because they might lose their job. Now the liberal side of politics can’t even be discussed in politics classes? Do not dare utter a word that’s critical of Christianity or you’ll probably be hanged.
The article does point out the difference between the old and new McCarthyism: now it’s perpetrated by small but vocal groups of fanatics. I think this style of fascism is much easier now due to the web. People that think this behaviour is “ok” would likely not have admitted so in public. But, now that they can find a handful of other nuts like themselves on the web it probably feels empowering so they’re willing to be public about it. “See – I’m not crazy! There are at least 5 other people like me in this state alone!”
These groups are even offering cash rewards to students who turn in video of their professors talking about liberal issues. Good thing they don’t care too much about education or else they might realize these kids will now spend more time witch hunting than actually learning.
