The thought police at UCLA

The Bruin Alumni Association (not to be confused with the UCLA Alumni Association) has a website which lists out professors it considers to be radical and offers students $50-$100 for class notes and recordings of professors on their watchlist. Imagine being one of these professors, learning you're being attacked in a public place, that a laundry list of misdeeds has been attached to your name and photograph, that there's no opportunity to refute the website's claims. It'd feel like being Winston Smith.

You've got to hand it to these cruel splinter Bruins, they've managed to created a terrible atmosphere for a lot of people with minimal effort.
