Excellent post. I’m regarded as one of those “hateful right wing bigots” by the Left. Now you have experienced what I experience from Leftists every single day. The Democrat Party is corroded with people who on the one hand claim to be eager to “help” minorities but at the same time are only willing to do so by ordering them around and demanding their unquestioning allegiance. Count your lucky stars you didn’t get branded an “oreo” by the school and expelled for having the nerve to call the professor what she really always was: a racist who refuses to even consider she is one. So sure is she of the intrinsic evil of the right, she feels herself above all reproach — even of the very people she is denigrating. This is the reality the rest of the country deals with from Democrats every day. Congratulations on handling it well, but never forget — Democrats never ever forget. If you remain in Leftist circles, this incident will come back to haunt you. Beware of it. If you think I overstate, I have massive clippings about the Clintons you need to read with your new enlightenment. They raised vindictiveness to an art form, and Democrats learned at their feet.
