A multi-partisan activist group established to expose and resist US imperialism, corpora-terrorism, and the New World Order

Opinion piece by CLG Founder, Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D., in today’s Washington Post: Here’s what happened when I challenged the PC campus culture at NYU | 03 Nov 2016 | I’m not a conservative, or an alt-righter…But over the last couple of weeks, I’ve become a campus pariah to some (and a hero, perhaps, to a few) in my nontenured NYU faculty job, thanks to the humorless, Social Justice Warrior-brand of campus culture run amok and a misunderstanding about a Twitter account. Enmeshed in a conspiracy — thinly disguised as sympathy — of my colleagues’ design, I’ve lost my academic freedom and I potentially stand to lose my appointment. Last month, NYU’s senior vice president of student affairs, Marc Wais, sent an email to the campus community to announce that an on-campus appearance by right-wing Internet provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos had been canceled by the administration. I believe universities should debate bad ideas, not ban them, and I vocally opposed this development.
