ORANGE, Calif. — Rachel Fulton Brown and Bruce Gilley are among academia’s most hated, both attacked and vilified by throngs of leftist peers in recent years.

In Brown’s case, the University of Chicago history professor has been maligned as a white supremacist and violence-inciting alt-right leader by hundreds of her colleagues after repeatedly championing the goodness of Western Christian Civilization and defending the gay-conservative firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos.

Her troubles began in 2015 with her personal blog post “Three Cheers for White Men” that aimed to tout the role of white men’s support for the ideals of chivalry, consensual marriage, the vote, and free speech. They only got worse when she refused to recant her positions. More recently she’s stood against clamoring among her peers that the field of medieval studies, Brown’s specialty, is too white and needs to be decolonized.

Last April, she was denied a promotion to full professor.

As for Gilley, after the Portland State University professor of political science published in 2017 “The Case for Colonialism” in the peer-reviewed Third World Quarterly, all hell broke loose.
