How do you ever prove anything like this, especially in subjective grading environments with tenured professors? There are things that happen that are not empirically provable. If one of them had been stupid enough to actually make a comment regarding grading of conservatives, I would have had an attorney involved. Proving discrimination is a very hard thing, absent people's words and shared sentiment. Even the actions themselves can be explained away.
Proving discrimination is
a hard thing, and that's why accusations require a certain level of evidence. You are assuming discrimination without evidence.
Did you get a grade on something that was unfair or did your professors just make grades up out of nowhere?
"Openly hostile" includes regular and flippant ridicule of world views that do not echo what the professor is teaching. In addition to the grading retribution, there is the hostility that a professor can create when they make someone "an example" of what happens when you openly confront ideological assertion being presented as pure, incontrovertible fact.
Like what? Public ridicule? Being disagreed with?
I never thought it was my professor's job to massage my ego. I was a grown-up in college, or at least aspiring to be one. And I certainly remember the hypersensitive students who cried when anyone disagreed with them in a less-than-apologetic way.
You are offering nothing
specific and you want others to believe you were oppressed. If you were oppressed, you would have no poverty in specifics.
The basis for my using the term "thug" to describe some of these "scientists" and some of these "educators" is simply tethered to the fact which is very clear for all to see that there is a force directed against alternative ideas.
What "force" directed against alternative ideas?
In Italy we see the mafia continue to make a mockery and a disaster of Italy with their thug like actions which have intimidated the weak and submissive Italian "government" into allowing conditions to deteriorate in areas such as dioxin in Italian cheese because of mafia run toxic waste dumps contaminating the environment.
The mafia has killers. Scientists do not.
In China the government rules by their script and dissent is not much tolerated not so differently from those who fling evolutionist propaganda in the face of every student enrolled in class today. While those who argue another vantage point are shown the door or worse.
The Chinese government kills, beats, and imprisons people. Scientists do not.
Yes Grove I have a basis for my use of the term thug and it has nothing to do with emotion.
See Jub's post.
Jubelum says he believes something negative happened to him but has no evidence for it. To compare that with the Italian mafia and the Chinese government is irrational.
