Elite College Professor Calls Academia a Mad House and 'Safe Spaces' an Existential Error | 27 Oct 2016 | A professor at prestigious New York University has started his own war against so-called social justice warriors, claiming that the current politically correct culture of trigger warnings, safe spaces and bias reporting have fomented a culture of hyper-protectionism, hyper-vigilance and self-surveillance. Michael Rectenwald, a liberal studies professor at the NYU [CLG Founder], is the man behind the undercover Twitter account DeplorableNYUProf, which claims to “expose the viral identity politics of academia and its destruction of academic integrity.” Rectenwald uses his “Deplorable” account to express his frustration with current PC culture on campus. In an interview with Heat Street, Rectenwald explained his motivations, claiming that “current academia is 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.”
