Apparently here in the UK we've inherited this lovely group called "Turning Point", which in the US publishes a "watch list" of academics they believe hold viewpoints that are too left wing (professorwatchlist.org) - obviously attempting to out them and ruin their professional careers, but also making them potential targets for political violence.
This is a sensitive subject in the UK where anti-academic sentiment is on the rise and MP Jo Cox was murdered during the brexit referendum.
