University Professor Association President: Trump is the ‘Greatest Threat to Academic Freedom’ Since McCarthy

, Spencer Irvine, 2 Comments

The president of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) said that Trump is a grave threat to academic freedom:

In a statement published the morning after election night, AAUP’s president, Rudy Fichtenbaum, acknowledges that her nonprofit has “never endorsed or supported a candidate for president of the United States” or “engaged in partisan political activity on the national level.”

She went on, however, to explain that it “would be foolish” to “deny that most college and university faculty members did not support the election of Donald Trump.”

    On the other hand, having universities put so much effort into making sure that everyone looks different from each other but think exactly alike and always follow the party line is no threat to academic freedom at. What a bunch of self important dorks.
