Even More Hypocrisy In Academia

This is a follow up to a recent post.
Over the last several years, Jewish students on campuses across the country have been physically, emotionally, and intellectually harassed, intimidated, threatened, and bullied, not only by their fellow students but also by some of their professors . . . The official response to these episodes has been silence.
The information from the source of this quote is quite disturbing. Note this observation:
Students have reported feeling emotionally and intellectually harassed and intimidated by their professors, to the point that they are reluctant or afraid to express a view that is not anti-Israel in their classes. They are often afraid to come forward and confront the professor or complain to the university for fear of retaliation.
As I also pointed out recently, these intimidation tactics are particularly disgusting knowing they come from institutions and individuals who loudly proclaim their devotion to diversity and tolerance. 

It appears that tolerance and diversity often only applies to ideas which conform to academia's institutionalized ideology.

It is truly surreal. And it is truly disgusting and Un-American. Is it any wonder why many Americans have so little patience and respect for "professional" historians and bloggers who point fingers at others while they ignore this type of abuse occurring right in their own profession and under their noses. Quite frankly, they make me sick.
