YAF’s ‘Radicalization Rewind’ Looks Back on ‘Worst of the Worst’ Campus Offenses of 2023

The Left’s shift from liberal bias to leftist indoctrination to the outright radicalization of America’s young people is alarming – and Young America’s Foundation is diligently working to expose it all and bring about reform.

This year’s “Radicalization Rewind” invited YAF’s social media followers to cast their votes to decide which incident of leftist lunacy exposed by YAF’s New Guard should be crowned 2023’s “worst of the worst.”

Twenty contenders were seeded across four divisions: “Professor Overreach,” “Leftist Idiocy,” “Censorship & Coercion,” and “Campus Antisemitism.” 

The four New Guard articles that made it to the semi-final round of voting were “Chicago Area High School Segregates Its Lunch Room,” “Bin Laden Receives Praise From American College Students Nationwide,” “University at Buffalo Tries to Shut Down YAF Chapter After Successful Knowles Event,” and “Michigan State Professor Forces Students to Donate to Planned Parenthood.”

It was a tough decision to make, but the ultimate “winner” was Michigan State University, home of “Rebel Professor” Amy Wisner. Wisner, who taught business marketing courses at the prestigious institution, developed a members-only leftist online community that she billed as “a safe place to coordinate our efforts to burn everything to the f–ing ground.”

She forced each of nearly 600 students per semester to purchase $99 per year (automatically renewing, difficult to cancel) memberships, proceeds of which were used to purchase the scheming professor a “rebellion RV” and donate to Planned Parenthood.

After YAF exposed this situation, major outlets including Fox News, the Daily Caller, and the Daily Mail brought national and international coverage to the story, the professor was fired, and students initiated a lawsuit against her.
