Last week, a friend made me aware of a new .org website proclaiming to seek defending freedom of speech in academia by providing a space for students to anonymously report teachers for liberal bias and other forms of “anti-American” progressive “indoctrination.”
I’m a liberal professor and my conservative students terrify me.

What’s troubling about sites like these is that they systematically decontextualize the narrative by presenting only one side of the issue — and, because they feed an appealing narrative, they aren’t going to be called out on their own pages. There’s definitely concerns with conservative speakers being protested off campus, but there are also long-running concerns with the silencing of liberal viewpoints.
