Does Brandeis really have a lot of conservatives on campus? That would probably be news to Daniel Mael.

Professor quits because there are too many conservatives on campus

A professor of politics at Brandeis University is retiring because he could no longer tolerate conservatives on campus.

According to the Brandeis student newspaper, The Justice, Professor Donald Hindley will step down from the position he has held for over half of a century because, as he said, there are “far fewer … let me call them, activist, liberal-minded people” at Brandeis University.

Hindley confirmed that Brandeis is not compelling him to step down. Instead, his departure is due to his age and his belief that the politics department had become “far more conservative.”

“I just could not tolerate anymore,” Hindley said before directing criticism toward the President of Brandeis University, Frederick Lawrence.

“It just wasn’t worth tolerating anymore what the place was becoming under Lawrence.”

The news, however, is not surprising. The pro-Palestinian professor has had some very public disagreements with the historically Jewish university in recent years.

In 2007, Hindley generated controversy by using the derogatory term “wetbacks” during a Latin American Politics course. Brandeis found him guilty of racial harassment, assigned a monitor to his courses, and required him to complete sensitivity training.

This past summer, Truth Revolt reporter Daniel Mael exposed a faculty listserv of Brandeis professors, including Hindley, collectively boycotting an honorary degree scheduled for women’s rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
