Leftists Trying To Get Conservative Law Professor Fired For Honest Criticism Of Black Lives Matter Movement

William Jacobson is a conservative law professor at Cornell University. He is the founder and publisher of the highly popular conservative blog ‘Legal Insurrection.’

In some recent articles, Jacobson has been critical of the Black Lives Matter movement and the destruction which has taken place in their name.

Now leftists are trying to get Cornell to fire him.

From Legal Insurrection:

There’s an effort to get me fired at Cornell for criticizing the Black Lives Matter Movement

There is an effort underway to get me fired at Cornell Law School, where I’ve worked since November 2007, or if not fired, at least denounced publicly by the school.

Ever since I started Legal Insurrection in October 2008, it’s been an awkward relationship given the overwhelmingly liberal faculty and atmosphere. Living as a conservative on a liberal campus is like being the mouse waiting for the cat to pounce.

For over 12 years, the Cornell cat did not pounce. Though there were frequent and aggressive attempts by outsiders to get me fired, including threats and harassment, it always came from off campus.

I made great efforts to keep this website separate from my work. I did not write about Cornell that frequently, and rarely about the law school itself. Nonetheless, the website and my political views were the elephant in every room, because the website is widely read, particularly by non-liberal students.Over the years, many students approached me privately and behind closed doors to express gratitude that someone was able to speak up, because they remained politically silent out of fear of social ostracization with the related possible career damage from falsely being accused of one of the “-ists” or “-isms.”

Not until now, to the best of my knowledge, has there been an effort from inside the Cornell community to get me fired.

Some big name people are sticking up for Professor Jacobson:

The left tries to cancel anyone who dissents.
