Rod Liddle has condemned Durham University’s ‘disgusting’ treatment of a prominent academic following he invited him to give a talk.
According to the columnist, Professor Tim Luckhurst should be sincerely apologized to by the institution and reinstate him to his duties immediately.
He also called for bosses to say sorry to him for ‘vilifying’ his speech to ‘appease jabbering infants’ and said they should reimburse his £150 travel expenses.
The protest came as Left-wing students from South College staged a demonstration calling for an inclusive campus and a safer environment.
Baying activists met on a green, holding placards that read’mansplaine, manipulate, womanwife’ and “we’re queer. we’re here.”
Professor Luckhurst had agitated them, shouting “pathetic” when students staged walkouts during Mr Liddle’s Friday talk – though he eventually apologised.
The university has placed him under investigation and he is now barred from all duties. It’s understood that he has been gagged throughout the ongoing case.
South College was the scene of a small protest by Left-wing students calling for a safer, more inclusive campus

Today, a small group of students protestors marched up to South College in an attempt to have the professor fired.
This morning Mr Liddle rushed to the aid of his friend, blasting Durham, the academic who heads the new South College.
While he stated that he had expected students to behave like this, Universty was more surprised.
He said to GB News, “Let’s begin with Durham University’s actions.” The students behaved far worse than they did, and the staff have been despicable.
“I expected this from students. I even expected it from some of them. You don’t see the double thinking Durham University indulges in.
“First, they say they support freedom of speech. Then, they add that except for something they disagree with (which the Labour Party on campus does not agree with), then they won’t accept it.
“Then, most importantly of all, you may argue that poor Tim Luckhurst is being scapegoated to whom I was asked to go along after clearing it with university officials having informed them in advance.
They have decided to please these infants and decided to do something. A highly respected and well-respected journalist or professor was left in the dust.
“And so they should immediately decide whether or not they believe in freedom of speech.
“Number 2: Write a sincere apology to Professor Luckhurst and immediately reinstate him to his duties.
“And you accept that he has invited me to come here with good will.”
The third thing they need to do is to write me a note of regret and to explain that their remarks about me were unfair.
“They can forward me 150 pounds for my travel expenses, because I arrived there without any cost and with the intention of doing something good to contribute to public service.
He stated, “So they could apologise for me and pay my travel costs. Then I’ll be satisfied.”

Yesterday footage emerged of Professor Luckhurst and his wife Dorothy talking to students who stormed out of the speech after the event.
The pair spoke to them calmly, and seemed to want to help them to understand why universities were supposed to be bastions for free speech.
As Professor Luckhurst began speaking, the youths listened intently.
Then she asked, “What do you fear of?” The student who was responding to the question asked: “What are you afraid of?”
The rest of their exchange was inaudible but Mrs Luckhurst went on to repeat the word ‘a***’ before another asked: ‘Don’t we all have one?’
She tweeted later that night: ‘Bunch of inadequates thought it was clever to walk out on a speech tonight because they were afraid of what the speaker said…’
She added: ‘Incidentally they thought it was ok to ask my husband to apologise for my comments…
“I know this is an old idea but I can speak on my own behalf. Maybe women’s equal rights are not something that the modern woke generation is aware of.

“Tim Luckhurst was the ex-editor of a national newspaper and knew what he did when he stole a Christmas party. He then allowed his friend to spew vile propaganda that he believed would lead to division.
His shameful attempts to justify this pantomime while pretending that it was for students’ education are disgraceful.
“He failed to fulfill his duties of care as principal for South College students and leader within our University community.

Additionally, he said that underperformance among students of Caribbean descent wasn’t due to institutional racism.
These are the mainstream views of many government and academic experts, he said to Daily Mail later.
He stated that he was not racist nor transphobic. Transgender people should be able to live happily, with dignity, and equality in this world. I hate racism.
He stated that the key point of his talk was “tolerance of others opinions and doubt in one’s own opinion.”
Later, Professor Luckhurst emailed his students to apologize for the use of “pathetic” but also to defend Liddle’s right to invite him and to say he supported ‘free speech.
