In yet another manifestation of “woke” madness on campus, a professor of physics at Northern Illinois University has taken the fetishization of the masks that have become an integral part of the collective identity of the political left to extremes, demanding that all students in his classes wear the stifling face diapers or else they will be kicked out.
For good measure, professor Jahred Adelman equates going bare-faced indoors as a “manifestation” of – you guessed it – racism, as well as ableism which is defined as discrimination against those who have disabilities.
“Refusing to mask indoors is a manifestation of ableism and racism, an exercise of individual privilege that tells the most vulnerable that their health and the health of their loved ones do not matter. Thus, masks are required here. They are NOT optional,” read a message from Adelman seen in a photo of a projector screen from one of his classes.
The forced masking and the ridiculous likening of those desiring to make their own decisions regarding their personal medical health to racists and bigots were reported through the Campus Bias Tip Line set up by Young America’s Foundation, the watchdog group posted an image of the offensive message from Adelman to his students.

“Masks are required AT ALL times in PHYS 253. Here and in your labs. It is not pleasant, but it is for your health and safety, my health and safety, and the health and safety of your friends and colleagues. If you do not follow this requirement, you will be asked to leave,” he wrote in the course syllabus, a copy of which was obtained by YAF and which also featured pictures of famous historical figures wearing face burkas, a highly esteemed fashion symbol of the 21st century American left.

“Yes, I have the authority to mandate masks in my crowded classroom to keep myself+others safe and healthy. As always, I’m happy for any of my students to come discuss this in my office hours. If anyone else has an opinion, I look forward to teaching them in my class next semester,” Adelman wrote on Twitter, in defense of his petty authoritarianism before he locked down his account.
Adelman – who has taught at the school since 2014 – has “bragged about filing reports against unmasked individuals on the train–sometimes, even claiming to have confronted them,” reported YAF with one student who asked to remain anonymous telling the group, “He seems a bit emotionally unstable.”
Twitter users posted their grades on the restrictive policy as well as professor Adelman’s bizarre justification.
Forcing masks on students, makes you look as though you are a totalitarian topped with fascism. In short, it's bad enough to require masks, which may be useless, but to call people "RACIST" for objecting is not only offensive, but should be a violation of school standards. https://t.co/GBziKwyWd2

Sure you can. But why? The masks do nothing and f you don't know that you really shouldn't be teaching college kids anything at all until you pass an 8th grade science class. Oh and a Civics class to lose that "racism" crutch you seem to like to swing. https://t.co/CrwqWGjxOu

Be honest, it’s all about yourself.

Hmmmm the mask Gestapo in action. Even though the CDC has admitted masks do nothing. Good way to keep the sheeple in line though huh?

ENOUGH!!!! You are exactly what is wrong with our country. Educate your students in physics and keep your authoritarian concepts out of our education system.There is real racism in the world – why make something racist that is not ….. just to further your philosophical agenda.

Yeah, I’m sure students would feel comfortable going to your office hours to “discuss” after you accused them of RACISM for not wanting to wear a mask.
Do better. https://t.co/gl5mVWcT4U

Just because you have the authority to be a d bag doesnt mean you should act on it. You know the data shows masking does literally nothing but you just get off on this little bit of power. It’s really just sad

In an email to Fox News Digital, Adelman said he is trying to “keep everyone a little safer while we learn physics.”
“The university allows professors to set mask policy in their classrooms and laboratories. I cannot and would not tell students what to do outside of my class, but if I can do my part to keep everyone a little safer while we learn physics, I will do so. Of particular concern to me is protecting those students of color and those with special health demands and needs, whom studies have shown are disproportionately impacted by the virus,” he added.
