The hazards of coming out of the closet…..as a conservative professor

William A. Jacobson of Legal Insurrection fame tells us at College Insurrection:

Independent conservatives are an endangered species among faculty members on American campuses.

Cal State-Northridge professor Robert Oscar Lopez, author of  The Colorful Conservative: American Conversations with the Ancients from Wheatley to Whitman who has gained notoriety recently for a piece on about same-sex parenting as it relates to his own upbringing and sexuality, details his experiences as a renegade English professor in an American Thinker article.

A quote from R.O.P. Lopez at American Thinker:

After coming out…

For years I was called into superiors’ offices and pressured to take down blogs, stop posting on Facebook, desist from using listservs, and remove from view a certificate I’d gotten from George W. Bush’s presidential center.  Watchdogs called me in to show me a printout from my Facebook page, with various phrases circled in pencil.

My response each time was to comply with the university’s requests: I stopped blogging.  I disabled Facebook.  I stopped tweeting.  I took down any signs referring to George W. Bush.  I apologized to complainants for making them feel, as they claimed, “worried about their safety” with a conservative extremist on the floor.

There’s a whole bunch of stuff at the above link.  It’s all just so insane.  One can only wonder over  a limited number of train wrecks at a time.
