Free Speech Suppressed: Conservative UCLA Professor Fired
If you were to review Keith Allen Fink's résumé, you'd be nothing short of impressed (or at the very least intrigued). A distinguished attorney, Fink has spent at least the past 15 years litigating in countless high-profile cases, becoming known internationally for his aggressive presence in the court room.
In 2008, Fink began teaching at his alma mater, UCLA, specializing in free speech courses. Who better to instruct such a class than a man whose professional career hinged on eloquent disagreement and persuasion?
Inevitably, the leftist administration at UCLA would catch on. Fink was ousted last month after a fiery appearance on Fox with Tucker Carlson:
Was Fink fired for poor performance? Hardly. His students gave him excellent reviews and attendance was high (despite attempts to block enrollment in his popular civil rights courses). No, Fink was fired for daring to disagree with the leftist hive mind.
From Fink himself, here is a classic example of leftist hypocrisy:
Control of this country is being quietly stripped away by the left. When our educators are no longer allowed to educate freely, that is a problem that affects as all as Americans.
