Left Wing Academics Say They’re Monitoring Republican Harriet Hageman For ‘Toxic Language’

Harriet Hageman is the conservative Republican who trounced Liz Cheney in the Wyoming Republican primary this summer.

Left wing academics at North Dakota State University are now monitoring her words for ‘toxic language.’

This is nothing more than political harassment. It’s outrageous.

“I’ll tell you what’s ‘toxic’ — trying to freeze free speech with ominous warnings that ‘we’re watching you’ from pointy-headed college professors and the leftist corporate media,” Hageman stated, according to Fox.

Hageman (pictured) defeated Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney in the Republican primary earlier this year and is expected to win the race for the U.S. House seat in November.

A copy of the email is posted in the article. Twitter shows no posts about the incident from Hageman’s account.

“Dear Harriet Hageman, We are two independent researchers at North Dakota State University,” according to the email. “We are not affiliated with any partisan group in any way. We are writing to let you know we are conducting research on the use of toxic language on Twitter by candidates, specifically how use of such language affects election outcomes.”

“Just before the election, we will write a post on the Monkey Cage blog of The Washington Post that discusses our findings regarding patterns in the use of toxic language,” the email authors stated.

Monkey Cage is a a political analysis blog published by The Washington Post.

The email was signed by Daniel Pernstein, a political science professor and the co-director of the Study of Digital Society at the university, and Yunus Orhan, a post-doctoral fellow at the Digital Society Project, according to their academic websites.

Hageman reacted to this news by blasting the left.

The left is not going to stop Hageman. She is going to win in November.
