College campus authoritarianism

I often compare the American Left's antics to those found on [American] college campuses. Here's a perfect example why.

Doesn't that sound an awful like the "You're a racist because you disagree with us" mantra the Left is utilizing in political discourse these days?

Interestingly, I came across a movie on one of the indy film channels the other day called "Oleanna." It deals with a professor's (William Macy) [supposed] sexual harassment of a student, and the terminology used by the female lead (Debra Eisenstadt, whose acting is otherwise atrocious) is straight out of a college's over-the-top PC handbook. If you want to see what [clear-thinking] professors and students have to put up with at colleges these days, just listen to Eisenstadt's lines, especially in the second half of the story.

Here's a particularly egregious case regarding apparently made-up charges of "sexual harassment"--from just last month--the professor complained that the policy could be used maliciously against someone, and then two days later it apparently was used against him maliciously!

Adam: Thanks for stopping by. The first link in the post goes right to that case (although it's via the Pope Center).
