NYU professor who blasted PC culture is booted from classroom

Michael Rectenwald, the New York University liberal studies professor on a crusade against political correctness, has been ousted from the classroom after colleagues complained about his “incivility”.

Rectenwald told the New York Post that he was forced on Wednesday to go on paid leave from the prestigious University for the rest of the semester.

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

Just last week Rectanwald gave Heat Street an interview. He called academia a mad house and “safe spaces” an existential error.

His Twitter account “DeplorableNYUProfessor” launched last month as a personal protest against social justice warriors was a “no safe spaces” zone, where Rectenwald expressed his frustration with current PC culture on campus. It claimed to “expose the viral identity politics of academia and its destruction of academic integrity.”

The identity politics left: they need a safe space that is at once a hall of mirrors and a rubber room.

His account was anonymous, he explained, because he didn’t want to continue being attacked by social justice warriors Twitteratti.

Hmm, speak ill of your employer on social media under the guise of anonymity then act surprised when you're called to the table on it. Yup, sounds about right.

I agree with him. Because he has a different perspective, he's out

What exactly should be okay to talk freely about at your job or in school racist hate talk, pro rape culture? What exactly do non politically correct people want to be able to talk about without any non government controlled repercussions? People can say whatever they want but they need the money to back up the consequences of their sass. If you depend on PC college students to pay your bills maybe you should keep that in mind when speaking.
