    An outspoken former Portland State professor - who quit last year citing the university's 'wokeism' - said he was confronted by students and faculty who told him to ‘f**k off’ because his questions 'inflicted trauma.'  Peter Boghossian was a full-time assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University for 10 years until his scathing public resignation letter in September, in which he called it a 'social justice factory' that drives 'intolerance of divergent beliefs.'  But Boghossian's chapter with the university seems far from over. On Tuesday, he claimed to have been confronted by students and faculty who allegedly told him to 'f*** off.'   'Today, faculty and students in Portland State University's sociology department confronted me. They claimed that I was inflicting trauma on people by asking questions,' Boghossian wrote in a tweet.  '...some of these people were telling me to f*** off.' It is unclear what led to the confrontation or what kind of questions Boghossian was asking. DailyMail.com has reached out to Boghossian and PSU for comment.   Last year, Boghossian shared his resignation letter with Bari Weiss, a former New...
    A former college football player has been arrested in the slaying of a Portland State University student, who authorities believe he previously dated. Amara Marluke, a 19-year-old activist with dreams of making music, was found fatally shot near the college campus early Monday and identified by authorities the following day. She’d been pursuing a degree in Sonic Arts & Music Production when she was killed. On Tuesday, deputies with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office tracked down Keenan Harpole at a family property in Bend more than 100 miles away from the school. The 20-year-old, who once played running back for the PSU football team, agreed to turn himself into authorities and is facing charges of second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon. Authorities said he is cooperating with investigators, who believe the killing is likely a domestic violence incident. According to her Marluke’s family, she and Harpole were in an on-again, off-again relationship that started at the beginning of her freshman year, in summer 2021. “They kept finding their way back to each other,” Amara’s aunt, Melanie Henricksen, told...

It is not clear exactly how Harpole and Marluke knew each other. Amara - who was studying music at the university - was described her loved ones as a "caring, beautiful" soul. Her dad Bradley said: "To say that Amara was the light of our life, a beautiful and a caring soul would not begin to do her justice." He said he and his wife adopted Amara when she was nine after the youngster had a "rough" start.

    The Portland State University professor who resigned with a scathing public letter over the university's 'wokeism' is calling out the liberal media who he says has ignored covering his resignation.   Peter Boghossian was a full-time assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University for 10 years until his resignation letter was published on Wednesday, calling the college a 'social justice factory' that drives 'intolerance of divergent beliefs'.   His resignation - revealed by Bari Weiss in her Common Sense substack - has been covered by publications including Fox News and The New York Post, but Boghossian has called out the 'liberal media' for failing to delve into his story.  'I’ve been deluged with requests to appear on conservative media regarding my resignation from PSU,' he tweeted on Wednesday. 'And yet, I don’t consider myself a conservative. I’ve received zero requests for interviews with liberal media. I’d enjoy having a conversation with you Rachel Maddow, NPR, MSNBC'  Boghossian, in his resignation letter, also describes how university administrators investigated him in 2017 after receiving a complaint under Title XI - which protects against gender or sex based...
    The Portland State University professor who resigned with a scathing public letter has spoken out in an interview, saying that he was hounded by diversity investigators and left unable to teach critical thinking. Peter Boghossian was a full-time assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University for 10 years until his resignation letter was published on Wednesday, calling it a 'social justice factory' that drives 'intolerance of divergent beliefs'. On Thursday night, he gave an interview with Fox News, saying the university had become a 'dogma factory' where free inquiry was no longer possible.  'They weaponized officers of diversity, equity, and inclusion,' said Boghossian. 'They have these mechanisms in place in the university to enforce certain speech codes against dissident professors, against anyone who questions or challenges what is morally fashionable,' he went on. Former professor Peter Boghossian (right) said Portland State had become a 'dogma factory' where free inquiry was no longer possible 'I've been accused of microaggression when I asked for the evidence for microaggressions,' he continued. 'Microaggressions' refers to acts of subtle and possibly unintentional discrimination. 'I've been...
    Portland State University philosophy professor Peter Boghossian filed his resignation paperwork on Thursday after the school attempted to silence the nature of his curriculum. Boghossian joined "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to detail his abrupt exit from campus which he described in a Substack newsletter to have transformed into a "Social Justice factory." "The university basically created conditions that didn’t allow me to teach what I was hired to do, which was critical thinking and ethics," he said. "And so I could not retain my current position as is." The former professor intended on going about his normal lessons until the university informed him he would not be allowed to render his opinion specifically on the topic of protected classes. He admitted that the university made it difficult for him to do his job as other professors urged students not to enroll in his classes. PORTLAND STATE PROFESSOR RESIGNS, SAYS UNIVERSITY BECAME ‘SOCIAL JUSTICE FACTORY’ As more universities nationwide adopt a social justice ecosystem, Boghossian said anyone who speaks out against the "dominant moral orthodoxy" including race, gender, and sexuality is ostracized...
    Until today, the most depressing letter I’ve ever read was the one I received from Arsenal Football Club informing me I had failed in my application to be the new 1st team manager. Admittedly, I was only 11 years old at the time and Arsenal were one of the biggest clubs in the world, but still, the rejection stung. However, the pain and anger I felt then paled into insignificance compared to the contorted rage and dismay I experienced when I read Portland State University professor Peter Boghossian’s public letter of resignation. Sometimes, even in these increasingly absurd woke-ravaged cancel culture times, I still physically shudder at a particularly awful example of the way free speech is being annihilated at the altar of political correctness. This was such a time. Boghossian has lectured at PSU as full-time assistant professor of philosophy for the past ten years. He was a popular lecturer known for his truth-seeking, non-indoctrinating style. But he’s now been forced to quit because he says the University has ‘sacrificed ideas for ideology.’ The woke destruction of a...

    Portland State University professor Peter Boghossian resigned on Wednesday, stating that the school has made “intellectual exploration” an “impossible” feat, and that students at the university “are not being taught to think,” but rather, “are being trained to mimic the moral certainty of ideologues.” “​​I’m writing to you today to resign as assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University,” Boghossian — who has taught philosophy at Portland State for the past decade — said in his resignation letter to Provost Susan Jeffords. Boghossian added that he had invited “invited a wide range of guest lecturers” to address his classes, ranging “from Flat-Earthers to Christian apologists to global climate skeptics to Occupy Wall Street advocates.” The professor said that he did this, “not because I agreed with their worldviews, but primarily because I didn’t,” adding that he wanted to “create the conditions for rigorous thought” for his students, and “help them gain the tools to hunt and furrow for their own conclusions.” “From those messy and difficult conversations, I’ve seen the best of what our students can achieve: questioning beliefs while respecting...
    A professor at Portland State University resigned after he said the campus became a "social justice factory" and a place that made "intellectual exploration impossible." Peter Boghossian, a philosophy professor and critic of what he calls a "culture of offense," resigned with an open letter Wednesday to the university, criticizing the school as a place where "administrators have abdicated the university’s truth-seeking mission." TEXAS PRINCIPAL SUSPENDED AFTER BEING ACCUSED OF TEACHING CRITICAL RACE THEORY "I never once believed —  nor do I now —  that the purpose of instruction was to lead my students to a particular conclusion," Boghossian wrote in the letter to provost Susan Jeffords. "Rather, I sought to create the conditions for rigorous thought; to help them gain the tools to hunt and furrow for their own conclusions." "This is why I became a teacher and why I love teaching. But brick by brick, the university has made this kind of intellectual exploration impossible," the letter continued. "It has transformed a bastion of free inquiry into a Social Justice factory whose only...
    This originally ran on Bari Weiss's newsletter. For more coverage like this, subscribe.  Dear Provost Susan Jeffords, ​​I’m writing to you today to resign as assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University. Over the last decade, it has been my privilege to teach at the university. My specialties are critical thinking, ethics and the Socratic method, and I teach classes like Science and Pseudoscience and The Philosophy of Education. But in addition to exploring classic philosophers and traditional texts, I’ve invited a wide range of guest lecturers to address my classes, from Flat-Earthers to Christian apologists to global climate skeptics to Occupy Wall Street advocates. I’m proud of my work. I invited those speakers not because I agreed with their worldviews, but primarily because I didn’t. From those messy and difficult conversations, I’ve seen the best of what our students can achieve: questioning beliefs while respecting believers; staying even-tempered in challenging circumstances; and even changing their minds. Peter Boghossian has taught philosophy at Portland State University for the past decade. In the letter below, sent this morning to...
    A Portland State University professor known for challenging 'woke' ideologies in academia has quit in a letter on Bari Weiss's Substack, claiming that the college failed to protect him from harassment and even unfairly investigated him as it turns into a 'social justice factory.' Peter Boghossian was a full-time professor of philosophy at Portland State University until his resignation letter was published on Wednesday. The 55-year-old explained he was stepping down because the university had made 'intellectual exploration impossible' and its only 'inputs were race, gender, and victimhood and whose only outputs were grievance and division.' He said students and administrators were abdicating 'the university’s truth-seeking mission' and driving 'intolerance of divergent beliefs and opinions.' 'I witnessed students refusing to engage with different points of view. Questions from faculty at diversity trainings that challenged approved narratives were instantly dismissed.  'Those who asked for evidence to justify new institutional policies were accused of microaggressions. And professors were accused of bigotry for assigning canonical texts written by philosophers who happened to have been European and male,' he wrote. Portland State University did not...
    Portland State University professor Peter Boghossian has resigned in an open letter, which accuses the administration of fostering an environment hostile to intellectual inquiry and dissent.

    A Portland State University professor resigned Wednesday after the university made “intellectual exploration impossible” and turned “into a Social Justice factory.” Philosophy Assistant Professor Peter Boghossian says he taught at the university for the past decade, teaching critical thinking, ethics and the Socratic method. Boghossian alleges the school has stifled thought diversity despite his various attempts to give his students a vast range of different viewpoints. “I never once believed – nor do I now – that the purpose of instruction was to lead my students to a particular conclusion,” his resignation letter reads. “Rather, I sought to create the conditions for rigorous thought; to help them gain the tools to hunt and furrow for their own conclusions.” “But brick by brick, the university has made this kind of intellectual exploration impossible.

    Peter Boghossian, an assistant philosophy professor at Portland State University (PSU), lambasted PSU’s president in a series of social media posts over social justice issues and the school’s priorities. In an email sent to the entire university community that Boghossian shared on Twitter, PSU President Stephen Percy wrote that his “highest priority is sustaining and amplifying our commitment to social justice.” The president of @Portland_State wrote this in an email, “My highest priority is sustaining and amplifying our commitment to racial justice.” pic.twitter.com/04HqNkmJ12 — Peter Boghossian (@peterboghossian) January 5, 2021 Boghossian, who did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller,  called for Percy, a white male, to “resign and offer [his] position to a black person.” Boghossian pointed to other concerns that he felt the president should be addressing instead. Should this really be the president’s #highest# priority? Not fixing out of control budget deficits? Not producing knowledgeable students? Not advancing faculty research? — Peter Boghossian (@peterboghossian) January 5, 2021 PSU raised tuition approximately five percent before the start of the 2020-21 school year. The...
