I was a liberal NY prof, but when I said the left was going too far, colleagues called me a Nazi and treated me like a Russian spy

Special article by CLG Founder, Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D.: I was a liberal NY prof, but when I said the left was going too far, colleagues called me a Nazi and treated me like a Russian spy | 12 Nov 2019 | What's wrong with the American left? Suffering from Trump anxiety disorder, acting like cult members, and engaging in a new McCarthyism, the left has lost its collective mind. I saw it coming and left the left in the nick of time. My break with the left began in the fall of 2016. I was a professor at New York University, a left-liberal, and an active social media participant. My skepticism and resentment at my political tribe's insistence that I affirm its increasingly crazy claims had been growing steadily to this point... When I returned from leave, I was universally shunned by over 100 fellow faculty members, some of whom wouldn't let me on an elevator with them... Upon complaining to human resources and the equal opportunity employment officers about the abuse, nothing happened - except that my office was moved to…get this...the Russian department! I liked to joke that I was treated as if I were a Russian spy, sent to my own personal gulag.
