Deplorable NYU Prof gets job back and a raise
Michael Rectenwald, a “Liberal Studies” Professor was placed on administrative leave at New York University after his comments on the politically correct culture created controversy. He described the situation in colleges as “like an infirmary or a hospital where everybody is potentially a sick patient who needs to be secured, protected and quarantined from anything that might be deemed challenging.”

The identity politics left: they need a safe space that is at once a hall of mirrors and a rubber room.

My closing statement to Social Justice Warrior at some “elite” university: Why don’t go to a safe space and tend to your obv psychic wounds?

Liberalism coopts the discourse and techniques of radicalism and turns them into devices of mass manipulation.

“Freedom of speech has also become a hot topic between those who disagree on the nature of his suspension. I don’t believe it’s appropriate for a professor to run that type of [Twitter] account publicly, but I also don’t believe that NYU has the right to silence him. It’s still unclear — to me, at least — what the true motive was behind his suspension, which further complicates the situation.” Audrey McCabe in an interview with the college paper NYU news
New York University has a politically correct policy. They even made their students check their Halloween costumes in case someone might be “offended” and “triggered.”
Heat Street reported,
NYU has recently been drawn into the “safe spaces” debate -– the alt-right provocateur Milo Yannopoulos’s planned speech there was just shooed off by the university for “security reasons”; students are encouraged to self check their Halloween costumes; and professors are advised to use a ‘bias reporting hotline’ number on their syllabi.
After the election, and learning that many students wanted to take his class because of his views, NYU not only reinstated him, they moved him from adjunct or part time professor to full time professor.
Michael Rectenwald believes that the politically correct system actually creates the very thing they are trying to avoid.
“This movement is not going to overthrow homophobia, transphobia, racism, or sexism. In fact, it works the other way and it will constantly cause people to be resentful and probably even foster the very attitude it opposes.” Michael Rectenwald
There is always a but…in spite of his Twitter account, in spite of his views, he describes himself as a “left-wing Communist.” Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up.
