College’s “Bias Response Team” Threatened Professor to Change His Lessons (AUDIO)

1984 AL

In recent years, college campuses have become like George Orwell’s 1984, where people can be singled out and investigated or harassed for having the wrong political views.

An incident that occurred at the University of Northern Colorado illustrates just how bad things have become.

Colorado ‘Bias Response Team’ Threatened Prof To Change His Lessons

The University of Northern Colorado administrator had no idea he was being recorded last fall as he sat down with an English professor, asking him to change his lessons after a student complained to the school’s controversial “Bias Response Team.”

Heat Street has exclusively obtained this recording, provided by the adjunct professor, who does not have tenure and asked to remain unnamed to avoid retaliation. The conversation’s tone was warm and informal—but its basic message, far less so: Avoid talking about transgender issues or face possible investigation or legal repercussions.

The professor’s transgression? He’d asked his class to discuss controversial social issues, including transgender rights. A student complained to the University’s Bias Response Team. “I would just like the professor to be educated about what trans is and how what he said is not okay because as someone who truly identifies as a transwomen I was very offended and hurt by this,” the student wrote…

In the recording of that meeting, Parks warns the professor that if he expresses his opinion about transgender identity in class, it could be perceived as discrimination under Title IX and Title VII. Parks also mentions how such discussion could possibly result in investigation by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

“It’s not ideal, it’s not perfect, it doesn’t fit into what you like to do,” Parks says, asking the professor to avoid discussion of the topic. “But if we go back there again, we have another discussion, and a student perceives it that you’re again saying a personal opinion, I’ve got three investigators, and you and I are wasting a ton of time, and they have to talk to every student in your class. So if the topic’s worth that, it’s your call.”

Listen to the audio:

During the presidency of George W. Bush, liberals claimed they were living under fascism.

The truth is that they’re worse.
