New website seeks to register professors accused of liberal bias and “anti-American values.”
By Colleen Flaherty November 22, 2016

excerpt:
A new website is asking students and others to “expose and document” professors who “discriminate against conservative students, promote anti-American values and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.”
....
In a write-up of the project, Kirk said, “It’s no secret that some of America’s college professors are totally out of line” and that he often hears stories about “professors who attack and target conservatives, promote liberal propaganda and use their position of power to advance liberal agendas in their classroom. Turning Point USA is saying enough is enough. It’s time we expose these professors.”

As Billy Bragg sings, "If you got a blacklist, I want to be on it."
