IRS SignIRS SignPosted June 10, 2016, by Mary Grabar: This week, Dissident Prof had the honor of being among such luminaries as the Wetumpka (Alabama) Tea Party and NorCal Tea Party Patriots, as well as tea parties in such places as Clark Valley, Clinton County, Dallas, Dayton, Dupage, and with the Conservative Roundtable of Texas, and Conservative Women for a Better Future, a total of 426 organizations designated by the IRS as having the wrong "viewpoint" for non-profit status. Our applications for 501(c)(3) status were "flagged" and held up.  We were subjected to extra scrutiny when the IRS did respond.  Dissident Prof is a plaintiff in the class action lawsuit against the IRS.

After being stonewalled for over a year, we at Dissident Prof were asked to jump to and justify our stance on, among other things, but primarily, Common Core.  I had to account for every penny spent since I started with my own funds while working as a college instructor.  The IRS did everything short of scouring the files in my office in the basement of my house where I spent hours and hours writing and setting up the organization.

Crying girlCrying girlPosted May 20, 2016, by Mary Grabar: Melissa Click, the bullying professor despised by most Americans, as many of you know, has been fired from her post at the University of Missouri. She is the symptom of the problem: arrogant professors who feel unbeholden to their employers, as I described in my article, "Melissa Click: One Bad Professor Fired, Thousands More to Go," at The Federalist. The ex-professor does have her allies, including Spike Lee, who made a movie about the protests last fall and the Chronicle of Higher Education.  (This is despite the fact that Click claimed that she was fired because she is a white lady.)  The American Association of University Professors has also come to the aid of the Lady Gaga scholar.  They visited the campus in March and just released their report that concluded (surprise and drum roll) that Dr. Click did not receive due process and was fired for political reasons.  At their meeting in June, they will take a vote on whether the university should be placed on its "censure list," along with such other institutions as Hillsdale College, Grove City College, and the University of Southern Maine.

Melissa Click Melissa Click Posted April, 26, 2016, by Mary Grabar: Melissa Click, the fired University of Missouri communications professor, who became notorious for bullying student reporters during last November's protests against still-unspecified racial injustices on campus, continues in her makeover.  (See my article "Melissa Click: One Bad Professor Fired, Thousands More to Go" at the Federalist.) She has friends at the Chronicle of Higher Education, who ran a lead feature on her on Monday, titled "Being Melissa Click."  The makeover goes beyond the professional photos, with make-up and hairdo, of a smiling, unthreatening professor.

Fred V. CherryFred V. CherryPosted February 25, 2016, by Mary Grabar: While PBS was releasing its whitewash of the Black Panthers and spoiled college students were protesting because of imaginary slights put out by Black Lives Matter, a true American hero passed away.  I had never heard of him, but came across this story in the Washington Post that begins,

Fred V. Cherry, an Air Force fighter pilot, was downed by enemy fire over North Vietnam in 1965, and he spent more than seven years as a prisoner of war.
