Portland State professor resigns claiming school has become a ‘social justice factory whose only inputs are race, gender, and victimhood’ where he was investigated and persecuted for daring to ask his students to think for themselves

Peter Boghossian, 55, quit his job as a philosophy professor at Portland State University in a public letter in Bari Weiss’s Substack, accusing the college of making ‘intellectual exploration impossible.’ He also claimed that the college has failed to protect him and even unfairly investigated him as it turns into a ‘social justice factory.’ ‘I witnessed students refusing to engage with different points of view. Questions from faculty at diversity trainings that challenged approved narratives were instantly dismissed. ‘Those who asked for evidence to justify new institutional policies were accused of microaggressions. And professors were accused of bigotry for assigning canonical texts written by philosophers who happened to have been European and male,’ he wrote.


The bad pushing out the good is a sure sign of national decline and we are seeing it everywhere. ABN

Boghossian’s letter was addressed to Portland State’s Provost Susan Jeffords
