Dr. Carol Swain, a conservative who dared criticize Islam, used to teach law at Vanderbilt University. Students petitioned the school to fire her in 2015. She retired in 2017.
With firsthand knowledge of how liberals attempt to stifle views they oppose, Dr. Swain said in 2015 that she’s “very concerned about what’s happening across the nation,” and believes “university administrators have lost control and that they’re making a serious mistake when they give in to students using those 1960s, 1970s protest strategies.”
After Dr. Swain stood up to the so-called Southern Poverty Law Center — a leftist group that labels other groups as “hate” groups — they called her an apologist for white supremacists.
Additionally, she said that a government school district was ignorant for banning To Kill a Mockingbird because it made students “uncomfortable.” Dr. Swain said this book helped ignite the 1960s civil rights movement.
At the National Religious Broadcasters convention last week, Dr. Swain (who blogs at Be The People) reiterated her warnings about the freedom-stifling left. Speaking to Rev. Derek McCoy, Executive Vice President of Star Parker’s Center for Urban Renewal and Education, she said universities are no longer pretending to be marketplaces of ideas.
