The anti-prod academics that frankly libel Protestants on behalf of large globalist networks are screaming out in pain now that people are noticing their conspiracy and it’s ill effects.
From the BBC,
“The union that represents the majority of lecturers at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) has accused some unionist parties and politicians of attacks on academic freedom.
The University and College Union (UCU) said they were aimed at gagging academics, especially over Brexit.
The UCU condemned what it called “an outrageous attack on democracy and the values of free speech”.
TUV leader Jim Allister has dismissed the criticism as “frankly laughable”.
In a strongly worded statement, the UCU branch at QUB criticised “wholly unfair and worryingly authoritarian attacks on local academics’ right to voice free opinions”.
It called for the university to “robustly and unequivocally reject demands by politicians to censure or silence academic staff”.
‘Depressing and predictably familiar’
The academic union claimed that members of the DUP had complained, both publicly and privately, to the university about views expressed by lecturers.
The union also cited correspondence from the TUV leader Jim Allister to QUB over comments made on a radio programme by a former Queen’s professor.
“An academic has their say on local issues of public interest or political importance – as academics do worldwide – and a local politician petitions the university to have them disciplined or gagged.”
In a statement, QUB said it had received two complaints from politicians regarding comments made by academics.
“Queen’s supports freedom of thought and expression, within a framework of respect for the rights of other persons,” the statement read.
“Academic freedom is enshrined as a guiding principle in the university’s charter and statutes.”
The UCU criticised the former DUP MLA Nelson McCausland, who is now a newspaper columnist and commentator.
‘The same as all of us’
In a recent column for the Belfast Telegraph, Mr McCausland said that Queen’s had to address the perception that it was a “cold house” for Protestants.
His column was sparked by an incident in which a Queen’s professor had supported European Council President Donald Tusk’s comment that there was a “special place in hell” for no-deal Brexiteers.
“Is Mr McCausland suggesting that this professor should be disciplined for offering an individual opinion?” the UCU said.
“Mr McCausland has repeatedly complained about what he characterises as the ‘left-wing sympathies’ of academics in Queen’s and University of Ulster.”
