Deplorable NYU Prof Silenced By Iron Curtain

(Before It's News)

Perhaps you heard about the NYU professor who made up an Alt-Right Twitter account in order to attack PC and criticize the SJW Left:

“An assistant professor at New York University created an undercover Twitter account so he could blast political correctness and campus “safe space” culture without fear of reprisal from students or “social justice warriors.”

Michael Rectenwald, a clinical assistant professor of liberal studies, has tweeted since Sept. 12 under the name “Deplorable NYU Prof,” a reference to the name Hillary Clinton infamously gave to supporters of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. …

My contention is that this particular social-justice-warrior-left is producing the alt-right by virtue of its insanity,” Mr. Rectenwald told the paper. “Frankly, I’m not really anti-pc. My contention is that the trigger warning, safe spaces and bias hotline reporting is not politically correct. It is insane. This stuff is producing a culture of hypervigilance, self-surveillance and panopticism.” …

Mr. Rectenwald said he went undercover in an effort to blend in with the alt-right, but despite his user name, he has no desire to back Donald Trump and considers himself a communist.

“I don’t support Trump at all. I hate him — I think he’s horrible,” the professor said. “I’m hiding amongst the alt-right, alright? And the point is, this character is meant to exhibit and illustrate the notion that it’s this crazy social-justice-warrior-knee-jerk-reaction-triggered-happy-safe-space-seeking-blah, blah, blah, blah culture that it’s producing this alt-right. Now, I’m not dumb enough to go there. And my own politics are very strong — I’m a left communist. But I think that in fact, the crazier and crazier that this left gets, this version of the left, the more the more the alt-right is going to be laughing their asses off plus getting more pissed. Every time a speaker is booed off campus or shooed off campus because they might say something that bothers someone, that just feeds the notion that the left is totalitarian, and they have a point.”

Rectenwald hates Trump. He thinks Trump is horrible. He is not anti-PC. He is a left communist. Five days later, the Iron Curtain came down on him:

“An NYU professor crusading against political correctness and student coddling was booted from the classroom last week after his colleagues complained about his “incivility,” The Post has learned.

Liberal studies prof Michael Rectenwald, 57, said he was forced Wednesday to go on paid leave for the rest of the semester.

“They are actually pushing me out the door for having a different perspective,” the academic told The Post. …

But Rectenwald is disheartened.

“I’m afraid my academic career is over,” he said . “Academic freedom: It’s great, as long as you don’t use it.”

At this point, I think it is safe to say Deplorable NYU Prof has reconsidered his opposition to the Alt-Right and is an undercover Trump supporter!

Note: I don’t blame the SJWs. The real problem is conservatism. These gutless cowards are incapable of opposing the Left. They are unwilling to fight fire with fire. If Hillary wins the election and we have to suffer four more years of this, it is their fault.
