From write Onan Coca at EagleRising:
David Deming is an arts and sciences professor at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma, and he is not like the person most of us imagine when we think of the modern American professor. No, Professor Deming isn’t a fascist brown-shirt who wants to shut down free speech, thought and opinion on the campus. He’s not an outspoken socialist who seeks to ridicule and berate his conservative students into silence. He’s not a militant atheist who openly mocks and derides his Christian students. Professor Deming believes that the college classroom is place for debate and open-mindedness.
He recently risked his reputation and possibly his job to write an op-ed in his local newspaper bemoaning the possibility that an avowed socialist might be elected the next president of the United States. However, Professor Deming seemed even more upset that if Bernie Sanders were to win election to the Presidency it would be because of the overwhelming support he receives on college campuses across the country.
