Do the students in this guy's class get "punished" if they object, disagree or protest his liberal diatribes?

Liberals are often quite hostile to opposing points of view, as evidenced in the manner in which this SC-jerk collectively describes CA Republicans.

I did not argue or debate them, I simply observed their teaching patterns (what they said, how they supported it) and looked for inconsistency in their lectures (there was plenty).

Here is some of what the USC professor said to his students:

"California Republicans [are] really stupid and racist."

" ... Republicans are 82 percent white. Losers."

"The Republican Party in California ... is the last vestige of angry old white people. "

"The Republicans are trying to prevent people of color and people of lower income from voting by requiring voter ID."

"We discovered, and this is generally true, the least flexible voter in America, the person who's less likely to change their...
