Show me an instance of someone advocating censure or removal for even the most wild-eyed of liberal theories, or apologetics for repressive regimes, or outlining of how wonderful life was in USSR or China or even S.Korea, or how imperialistic the US is, or what they did to the Native Americans, whatever.
Censure and removal calls generally don't occur until killing is advocated or slanderous accusations of bodily crimes are alleged at specific people.
I'm as first amendment as they come, MoF, I'm NOT one of those who advocate pulling people out of their jobs unless they are outright psychotic (ie, 'I propose we all meet up and kill xxx, and yyy by hanging Thursday next'), but I do recognize the material difference between stifling speech about academic research and stifling calls to arms for violence.
The guy from Colorado and the guy from Kansas come to mind.
If you're claiming wingers haven't called for the heads of "liberal" professors, you're either being dishonest or not paying attention.
