Students Asked to Spy on Liberal Professors

Capitol Weekly: Bruin Alumni Association Targets 'Radical' Faculty

Just when one thinks they've heard it all - you got to think again in these times.

A group calling themselves the Bruin Alumni Association published a list of professors from UCLA online at their website. The BAA is distributing to the public teachers whom do any of the follow:
  • one can't stop talking about Bush
  • the Iraq war
  • the Republican Party
  • ideals not in step with the BAA group named above, namely Republican opinions
The group offers $100 to anyone willing to turn in professors, if they do any of the above. The last I read of such actions was when reading of the Getstapo - the Hitler era on the History Channel & in plenty of history books.

The list is at www.uclaprofs.com.

I'm sorry, but, what was that about "morals" and "values?"

Anyone...?

===============================================
~ UPDATE ~

Googled The Bruin Alumni Association at the UCLA.

The Daily Bruin's Online Article

Andrew Jones graduated from UCLA back in 2003 with a degree in "political science," and a minor in "public policy." A conservative, he wasn't happy with the campus atmosphere, and left behind quite a bit of complaints, according to the article aforementioned. Calling the campus a "cancer of political radicalism," Jones accused the chancellor, and alumni associates of "hiding issues from donors." Upset over what "can" and "can not" be said in the classrooms, his main objective is targeting the university's strongest areas which include outside fundrasing and the alumni itself.

According to the Daily Bruin, Mr. Jones states, "I want this to be as broad a voice as the UCLA Alumni Association, and perhaps even UCLA itself."

Also noted, Jones was chairman of the Bruin Republicans while in attendance at UCLA, and a former colomnist for the Daily Bruin. With an advisory board of conservative activists, possibly four campus professors, and a Republican Senator.

It appears Mr. Jones is not a present-day student at UCLA, and is trying to change policies on the outside, in a political manner.

    I wonder how many members of the "Bruin Alumni Association" actually went to UCLA?

    Interesting question, and point made. Now you have me pondering that one.

    Sadly, there was a time when one could find information freely on Google, per se, but things seem to get scrubbed a lot these days, then again there is always the "waybackmachine dot come."

    Have you tried that site yet? Try searching for it on (where else) Google. And let me know if you find any thing out.
