    A better way would be for those with the cash and time, to go back to school, register for some particularly egregious professor's course of BS, and then sue the university over his grading policies, course content, etc.

    The university is given a chance to settle by either firing the professor involved (or maybe seriously demoting him), or paying a huge sum. They risk losing a serious alumni donor otherwise along with an ugly court trial with lots of bad publicity.
    Guess where that goes...

    Repeated a few times and administrations would quickly get the message...

    The other thing anyone can do is start reviewing the books of professors who are writing all sorts of schlock, poorly reasoned crap, and outright propaganda. Start on Amazon and expand.

    I can tell you their defense against this, if they respond, will be a lame argument from authority. "Well, you're not a PhD..." As if a PhD made you smart or omniscient on the subject.

    or

    "This was peer reviewed..." Translated my professor friends got a copy and told me it's a good book having never even cracked the cover...

    That's what passes for rigorous academics on the Left at universities today. It can be fought.

      a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

      Sounds like the thinking of the far right here at ACG.
      "Ask not what your country can do for you"

      Left wing, Right Wing same bird that they are killing.

      you’re entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts.

            As I have been warning everyone, the Left is incapable of distinguishing between Nazis and any other sort of political opposition to them what-so-ever.
            THAT is extremism.

            And to cap it all off;
            Student facing 50 day suspension for saying 'All Lives Matter'

            Politically correct tyranny is afoot at the University of Houston.

            I was recently made aware of a student at the university who was suspended for 50 days by the student government association and ordered to attend diversity training over a reference she made about the Black Lives Matter crowd. (She can still go to class but she can't participate in student government activities.)
            “#ForgetBlackLivesMatter; more like AllLivesMatter,” wrote Rohini Sethi, the vice president of the school’s student government association.

              On White Privilege...

              This guy is the Progressive Left's David Duke / Grand Dragon, if you will, the leading preacher and writer on the subject of White Privilege in the US today.

              He's not an academic. His only claim to this position is that he's on the hard Left, and has been a Leftist, activist, agitator selling White Privilege for profit his entire adult life.

              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Wise

              One only need the slathering praise Leftist heap on him (while paying to listen to his claptrap), and how he sounds like some old time Southern revival bible thumping tent preacher to know this guy is a huckster of the first quality.

                You can add the Department of Education under Obama to the list...

                In buying the for-profit chain, the Center for Excellence restructured itself as a tax-exempt, nonprofit educational corporation with Mr. Barney as chairman. The Internal Revenue Service approved the designation, but this month the Education Department refused to recognize the center’s nonprofit status for the purposes of receiving federal grants and loans, arguing that the deal was an effort to circumvent stricter government regulation.

                “This should send a clear message to anyone who thinks converting to nonprofit status is a way to avoid oversight while hanging on to the financial benefits: Don’t waste your time,” John B. King Jr., the secretary of education, said in a news release.
                I'd bet if the primary donor to such a college was a Leftist Progressive instead of an Ayn Rand Capitalist, evangelical this problem would have never come up...

                  Good job, TAG, and I can add this -

                  Daily Wire - The State University of New York Now Offers 'Stop White People' Training
                  The presenters of the course, Ciaran Slattery, Nicholas Pulakos, and Urenna Nwogwugwu, are all RAs at the state-funded college, which describes itself as New York’s highest-ranking public college. They state their purpose is to “help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within,” presumably the “white” society they plan to "stop" at the event.

                  The three RAs claim they will give “#StopWhitePeople2K16” course attendees the “tools” to respond to “uneducated people” with “‘good’ arguments.” You know, the people who preach mutual respect, equality under God, and constitutional freedoms. Those people.

                  They also state they will help other RAs at the state-funded college “hopefully expand upon what they may already know”: that white people are cancer, of course.

                  Prof hosts workshop on ‘how racism shapes white identity
                  According to a Facebook page for the event, participants explored the concept of “white fragility,” a term DiAngelo coined in one of her books on the topic.

                  [RELATED: Students nation-wide attend four-day, university funded white privilege bash]

                  “This workshop will provide an in-depth analysis of the specific ways that racism manifests through white fragility,” the description explains. “White fragility is the concept that due to living in a social environment that insulates them from racial stress, whites have not had to build their capacity for constructive cross-racial engagement.”
