Conservative group creates database of biased profs
- Turning Point USA launched a new website this week dedicated to exposing professors who “discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.”

Turning Point USA launched a new website this week dedicated to exposing professors who “discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.”
The aptly named ProfessorWatchlist.org, which only documents incidents that have been verified by independent news organizations, already lists hundreds of professors who have been caught engaging in discriminatory practices against conservative students.
The site features notable professors such as Melissa Click, the Mizzou professor caught on tape last year who called for “some muscle” to remove a conservative journalist who was filming a large campus protest.
Others include Julio Cesar Pino, a Kent State professor suspected by the FBI of ties to ISIS, and Dr. Charles Angeletti, an avowed socialist who forced his students to recite a version of the pledge that describes a racist, sexist, and homophobic America.
“Professor watch list is intended to expose document and organize radical professors across the country who have been engaged in anti-American and leftist behavior in their classes,” TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk told Campus Reform. “We believe these professors have a right to say whatever they wish, but we feel a responsibility to students, alumni, and parents to expose the radicalism that has institutionalizes our colleges and universities."
Conservative students are already beginning to notice the website, and hope it will help to curtail liberal indoctrination by exposing it to public scrutiny.
“I'm glad TPUSA is making an effort to help students on campus combat leftist professors,” Thomas Columbus, a conservative activist at Saddleback College, told Campus Reform. “I myself have been victim to some leftist professors grading down papers due to the sheer fact that they were written from a conservative slant. The amount of liberal bias on campus has gotten out of hand.”
