Cornell Professors Declare “Informed Commentary” Criticizing The Protests As Racism – JONATHAN TURLEY
Yesterday, we discussed the effort to remove one of the country’s most distinguished economists from his position because Harald Uhlig, the senior editor of the Journal of Political Economy, criticized Black Lives Matter and the Defund The Police movement. Now, Cornell Law School professor William A. Jacobson is reportedly facing demands that he be fired because he wrote a blog about the Black Lives Matter movement. Jacobson is the founder of the conservative website Legal Insurrection. A letter by his colleagues is a chilling reminder of the rapid loss of free speech values on campuses around the United States.
