@jayeless How frustrating and infuriating. I'm glad you found the Mastodon areas that give you what you were looking for.

@jayeless Your post reminds me of the story of the anti-nazi bartender and the paradox of tolerance.

@Cheri @jayeless Jayeless' post and the one Cheri linked to put me in mind of something that happened at the college where I teach. This was a long time ago, so I don't remember the details. A student in a composition class taught by a Jewish professor wrote an essay espousing Nazi ideology. As I remember it, the professor did not want to have to grade the essay, for obvious reasons, nor did she--I think the prof was a woman--want the student in her class, also for obvious reasons. I don't remember what the outcome was, but I have often wondered what I would do in the various ways that situation might have played out.

@Cheri Thank you! I knew I'd read the same point made somewhere, and it was really frustrating me that I couldn't find where it was. You got it in one 😃

@jayeless @cheri This article in the NY Times also raises important questions. It’s about the response after it was found that the Buffalo shooter cited in his manifesto the patently racist work of a professor who’s published it in respectable academic outlets and who remains employed at credible universities.
