If this Harvard University student got her way, free speech on campus would be abolished and professors with dissenting views fired, because radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy and the First Amendment is a barrier preventing modern colleges from fulfilling their proper role as indoctrination camps.
Her name is Sandra Korn. She is a senior at Harvard and columnist for the Harvard Crimson.
In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism.
“If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals?” asked Korn in her column.
The column’s subtitle was even more direct: “Let’s give up on academic freedom in favor of justice.”
This has got to be some of the most closed minded thinking ever. Don't let people say what they think and want???? That's pretty much what I'm getting from her.

I think this only goes to prove one thing...very clever people go to Harvard.
Alongside very clever people, who think and say absolutely bloody idiotic things occasionally.
It takes all sorts.
Just another douchebag example of the dumbing down of America.......
What is her degree pray tell ?
That old Isrbit gal on yoo toob has it right.....
Instead, I would like to propose a more rigorous standard: one of “academic justice.” When an academic community observes research promoting or justifying oppression, it should ensure that this research does not continue.
I don't think she deserves to be singled out for any particular scorn or animus. From my experience she's just a typical
"progressive" Actually, it's sort of refreshing to have one just come out and say it rather than trying to pretend they're open to a two way conversation.
