Monkeys and the Conservative Arts
Baxley wants to stomp out (I'm not kidding) "leftist totalitarianism" by "dictator professors". Supposedly he wants "rightest totalitarianism" to win out the day.
When you hear something you don't agree with, I believe you need to stand up and prepare to defend yourself. If you cannot defend yourself, sit down and listen to why the professor believe's he/she is correct. If you still don't believe them, there are and must be other recourses besides suing them.
Universities are where academic freedom is encouraged. Dissenting views help students explore other people's beliefs and views and can serve to either modify their personal beliefs or *gasp* strengthen their own.
He's essentially accusing some professors as being intolerant of conservative views. His solution? Promote intolerantness by granting the "persecuted" the right to sue.
Dangerous precedents could be set here if this bill goes through. Professors no longer will become experts of their field: lawyers and judges will. I'm waiting for the day when "liberal arts" are vigorously attacked for being too, well, liberal.
