Deplorable NYU Prof Silenced By Iron Curtain

Perhaps you heard about the NYU professor who made up an Alt-Right Twitter account in order to attack PC and criticize the SJW Left:

“An assistant professor at New York University created an undercover Twitter account so he could blast political correctness and campus “safe space” culture without fear of reprisal from students or “social justice warriors.”

Michael Rectenwald, a clinical assistant professor of liberal studies, has tweeted since Sept. 12 under the name “Deplorable NYU Prof,” a reference to the name Hillary Clinton infamously gave to supporters of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. …

My contention is that this particular social-justice-warrior-left is producing the alt-right by virtue of its insanity,” Mr. Rectenwald told the paper. “Frankly, I’m not really anti-pc. My contention is that the trigger warning, safe spaces and bias hotline reporting is not politically correct. It is insane. This stuff is producing a culture of hypervigilance, self-surveillance and panopticism.” …

Mr. Rectenwald said he went undercover in an effort to blend in with the alt-right, but despite his user name, he has no desire to back Donald Trump and considers himself a communist.

“I don’t support Trump at all. I hate him — I think he’s horrible,” the professor said. “I’m hiding amongst the alt-right, alright? And the point is, this character is meant to exhibit and illustrate the notion that it’s this crazy social-justice-warrior-knee-jerk-reaction-triggered-happy-safe-space-seeking-blah, blah, blah, blah culture that it’s producing this alt-right. Now, I’m not dumb enough to go there. And my own politics are very strong — I’m a left communist. But I think that in fact, the crazier and crazier that this left gets, this version of the left, the more the more the alt-right is going to be laughing their asses off plus getting more pissed. Every time a speaker is booed off campus or shooed off campus because they might say something that bothers someone, that just feeds the notion that the left is totalitarian, and they have a point.”

Rectenwald hates Trump. He thinks Trump is horrible. He is not anti-PC. He is a left communist. Five days later, the Iron Curtain came down on him:

“An NYU professor crusading against political correctness and student coddling was booted from the classroom last week after his colleagues complained about his “incivility,” The Post has learned.

Liberal studies prof Michael Rectenwald, 57, said he was forced Wednesday to go on paid leave for the rest of the semester.

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

But Rectenwald is disheartened.

“I’m afraid my academic career is over,” he said . “Academic freedom: It’s great, as long as you don’t use it.”

At this point, I think it is safe to say Deplorable NYU Prof has reconsidered his opposition to the Alt-Right and is an undercover Trump supporter!

Note: I don’t blame the SJWs. The real problem is conservatism. These gutless cowards are incapable of opposing the Left. They are unwilling to fight fire with fire. If Hillary wins the election and we have to suffer four more years of this, it is their fault.

  1. Just around ten years ago I had a similar experience right in the same neighborhood. I wasn’t even trying to challenge any person or particular political ideology, either. To merely exist as an anglo white woman in NYC and many milieus is perceived as some kind of terrorist threat to the status quo – if you refuse to suck jew and black cock.

    And that’s what I did. And I got run out for merely refusing to abide the most outrageous invasions of my person and life.

    I understood then that America was over. But I thought it would take another 20-25 years at least to hit critical mass.

    It’s taken less than a decade.

    You white men think you know stuff.

    You’re beyond late to the real party, fellas.

    • ETA This message, like most of mine, goes out to the northwestern europeans, and particularly here the Southerners.

      The real party is reserved for us ‘anglocelt/germanics.’

      • Or as writer Richard McColloch says “Northernkind.” All Alt Right members should read his book The Ideal and Destiny. It is one of the most positive and upbeat books I have ever read on the racial situation. I hope this link still works.

  2. And Trump should freeze all Federal funding to NYU…..including student loans……until the place is forced to shut down all SJW crap violating the rights of students, faculty and the public at large.

  3. Trump is not an end in himself, he is a means to an end. He will help get this country moving back in the right direction, although he is not the guy who I think is going to lead the inevitable White revolt. The grade schools and universities need to be PURGED of the Marxist SCUM infesting the “social sciences” departments. Naturally, the medical and engineering schools will remain open (for White students only) but the feminist studies and sociology crap must go.

    • If Hillary and cabal manage to steal the election, we will be getting Islamic Jihad here in the United States, and not a little bit, ALOT of Islamic Jihad. May the Islamic Jihadists target all the Hillary supporters. I myself do NOT want Islamic Jihad for the United States, but the Leftists do, the Hillary supporters do. More about Hillary’s closest advisor, Huma Abedin :

      • If they plan to have nuclear war with Russian under an HRC presidency because of this Syrian idiocy I truly that blue states suffer the majority of nuclear devastation. NYC, DC, LA.

  4. I think that liberal doofus got what he deserved. Being a leftie he should have known that his kind always destroy any dissenters in their ranks. And his so-called dissent was tepid at best.

  5. I don’t blame the SJWs. The real problem is conservatism. These gutless cowards are incapable of opposing the Left. They are unwilling to fight fire with fire. If Hillary wins the election and we have to suffer four more years of this, it is their fault.

    I do blame SJWs, but because they are are “irredeemably deplorable” my true ire lies with the cuckservative right. They are beyond pathetic, beyond even mounting the most feeble resistance to the SJW agenda — indeed, they seem to go out of their way to prove their allegiance to to SJW precepts. Calling them spineless and gutless barely scratches the surface.

  6. He admits he’s one of them. He’s trying to warn them about their excesses working against themselves and they fire him. We are dealing with a vicious enemy but a damned stupid one as well. It’s all to the good.

    Perhaps if he appeals to fellow commie Bernie he can get his job back.

  7. The “professor”* should have known that priesthoods don’t tolerate any deviance from their religion.

    * of “liberal studies”
