Princeton University leadership is looking to fire a tenured classics professor citing his alleged unwillingness to cooperate fully in a sexual-misconduct investigation, but his supports say otherwise, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The outlet reports Princeton’s president sent a letter to the school’s board of trustees recommending that Professor Joshua Katz be dismissed over a previously adjudicated and settled conduct violation.
The article goes on to state the following:
Katz’s supporters claim the recommended dismissal is punishment for speaking out against the elite liberal school’s political party line.
The Journal wrote that Katz’s agitated many liberal facility when he was critical of their ideas on how to handle racism following the death of George Floyd.
The faculty penned a letter that was signed by dozens that proposed ideas on how to give professors “of color” perks such as extra time off and a summer salary.
“It boggles my mind that anyone would advocate giving people – extraordinarily privileged people already, let me point out: Princeton professors – extra perks for no reason other than their pigmentation,” Katz wrote in response to the letter.
Katz had previously been under fire for violating school policy in 2006 for a consensual sexual relationship.
Samantha Harris, lawyer for Katz, said, “If expressing an unpopular opinion is an invitation to have your personal life turned inside out looking for damaging evidence, how many people are going to be willing to speak out?”
Writer Bari Weiss tweeted Friday, “Here’s the playbook: person expresses thoughtcrime. The Puritans and the bureaucrats go digging. Then they caricature and smear the person based on their worst moment or mistake. They pretend it’s about that, but the thoughtcrime was always the thing. Joshua Katz’s wife @solveiggold told the Times: ‘Nobody wants to be seen in his presence, in his company, in his friendship.; That’s an indictment of @Princeton. Not of my friends.”

“While free speech permits students & faculty to make arguments that are bold, provocative, or even offensive,” Eisgruber said, “we all have an obligation to exercise that right responsibly. Joshua Katz has failed to do so.”
Be offensive responsibly!
