Veteran TV personality Geraldo Rivera is hitting back at political correctness run amok on American college campuses.

He announced on Twitter that he resigned from his position at Yale University over the decision to name Calhoun College after someone with less “racist” baggage.

Social justice advocates at Yale were successful in pressuring administration to rename the college after alumna Grace Murray Hopper, a computer scientist and rear admiral in the Navy, and erasing Vice President John Calhous from memory because he supported slavery.

Though he agreed that slavery was indeed a terrible blight on the United States, Rivera wanted to know where Yale students would stop their endless campaigns to erase every vestige of the past:

As of last year, Yale President Peter Salovey wasn’t going to cave to the pressure citing his commitment “to confronting, not erasing, our history.” But 2017 is a new year and Salovey suddenly thinks it’s a great idea and announced the change on February 11.

Rivera brought out the big guns in a final tweet on the matter. That’s how you know he’s serious. Click CONTINUE to read it:
