An English professor at Iowa State University threatened to dismiss students in her class if they expressed opinions in opposition to abortion or the Black Lives Matter organization, Young America's Foundation (YAF) reported.

The professor allegedly asserted that those who resist left-leaning orthodoxy cling to a position "that takes at its base that one side doesn't deserve the same basic human rights as you do."

Chloe Clark inserted a "GIANT WARNING" in her syllabus for her English 250 class, saying that "any instances of othering that you participate in intentionally (racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, sorophobia, transphobia, classism, mocking of mental health issues, body shaming, etc. in class are grounds for dismissal from the classroom.

"The same goes for any papers/projects: you cannot choose any topic that takes at its base that one side doesn't deserve the same basic human rights as you do (ie: no arguments against gay marriage, abortion, Black Lives Matter, etc). I take this seriously."

YAF reported that a whistleblower who wished to remain anonymous for fear of retribution submitted the syllabus through the Campus Bias Tip Line.

According to Iowa State's campus website, Clark graduated in 2016 and teaches within the English Department.

Twitter user Kara Zupkus took to Twitter to give an update on the case, tweeting: "UPDATE: Iowa State has released a statement saying the syllabus is 'inconsistent with the university’s standards,' and that the syllabus has been corrected. They also noted Clark is being given 1A training materials."

YAF reported that a professor wielding this kind of power in a classroom is an example of blatant discrimination against conservative students, who tend to be pro-life and critical of the Marxist BLM organization. The outlet added that "warning students that any opinion the professor may disagree with could be grounds for dismissal from the classroom is a gross abuse of power."

Zupkus added: "You might want to remind your professor, Chloe Clark, about respect and the richness of diversity of ideas."
