Disgraceful DePaul

The ongoing saga of DePaul instructor Thomas Klocek, from an AP story:

Free speech is a sin at DePaul University, thanks to a wave of political correctness at Catholic universities, according to a former professor who was suspended after arguing with pro-Palestinian students at a campus activities fair.
“A short conversation with some students about an admittedly sensitive subject, the situation in the Middle East … has indeed changed my life quite radically,” Thomas Klocek said during a speech on DePaul’s campus Wednesday night. “I no longer teach here. I believe I am subject now to the vagaries of political correctness and that the administration is simply unwilling or unable to confront the situation directly, so I am the expendable one.”
