Professor: I was 'ambushed' by progressives for criticizing campus PC culture

Professor: I was 'ambushed' by progressives for criticizing campus PC culture --'I denied that these self-appointed judges held any moral authority over me' | 22 Jan 2018 | In a recent interview, a professor at New York University [and CLG Founder] said that he was "ambushed" after publicly criticizing politically correct campus culture, stating that even his fellow communist friends "denounced" him for speaking out. "[A]fter the social-justice-infiltrated left showed me its gnarly fangs and drove me out," Michael Rectenwald recently told FrontPage Mag, "I could no longer identify as a leftist." ...From the interview: Friends and acquaintances from other communities also turned on me with a vengeance, joining in the groupthink repudiation. After my appearance on "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News, the Twitter attack was so fierce, vitriolic, and sustained that my associate Lori Price and I spent a whole night blocking and muting tweeters. But the worst banishment came from the NYU Liberal Studies community -- to which I had contributed a great deal, and of which I had striven for years to be a well-regarded member.
