Campus Kangaroo Court Convicts Conservative Professor
Many thanks to Peter Kirsanow for highlighting the plight of my friend and Vanderbilt professor Carol Swain, who’s now facing a petition demanding her suspension for the thoughtcrime of being “hateful” to minorities. This isn’t Dr. Swain’s first campus controversy. She’s faced vandalism, threats, protests, and official condemnation for her previous thoughts on Islam, religious liberty, race, and diversity.
