“Academic freedom, which protects professors and researchers from sanctions when they dissent from prevailing opinions, has been seriously undermined by the authoritarian left.

“The disciplining of professors based on ‘micro-aggressions,’ however, sets an unfortunate precedent and represents a slippery slope. No conscientious professor would willingly hurt their students’ feelings,” writes Thomas Boogaart, a professor of contemporary global history at the University of Ottawa since 2004 and a member of the APTPUO’s Board of Directors.
