Harvard law professor Mark Tushnet says he isn’t bothered by his inclusion on a conservative group’s new watch list of leftist professors.
“It’s not a big deal,” Tushnet tells the Harvard Crimson. “It comes with the territory.”
Tushnet is among nearly 200 professors on the “Professor Watchlist” created by the group Turning Point USA. The list aims to “expose and document college professors who discriminate against conservative students, promote anti-American values, and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.” The New York Times, New York Magazine and the Chronicle of Higher Education have stories.
Critics told the Times that lists like the one created by Turning Point USA are intended to intimidate professors from speaking out.
