Leftist students at Yale Law School are just doing what leftist students do.

According to a report at the Washington Free Beacon, they’ve attacked one student who had a membership in the conservative Federalist society.

And more than a hundred disrupted a bipartisan panel on civil liberties, triggering so much chaos police were called, an incident that allowed Yale officials to deny the students has violated any rule.

And a random assortment of other incidents in which the liberal ideology was evident.

But now they may end up paying the price.

The Free Beacon revealed that already a dozen federal judges say they no longer will hire law clerks from that particular law school.

Fifth Circuit judge James Ho announced recently he would no longer hire law clerks from the nation’s top-ranked law school, and another dozen judges on both circuit and district courts joined – but remained anonymous.

“Students should be mindful that they will face diminished opportunities if they go to Yale,” said a circuit judge whose clerks have gone on to nab Supreme Court clerkships. “I have no confidence that they’re being taught anything.”

Explained the Free Beacon, “If the boycott catches on among other right-leaning judges, it could deal a serious blow to Yale Law School, which has maintained the top spot in the U.S. News and World Report rankings since the publication began ranking law schools in the 1980s. Clerkships, particularly on the federal bench, are coveted jobs in the legal profession, and many students choose Yale over other elite law schools because its graduates have historically had the best shot of clerking for prominent judges. A boycott could change that calculus, forcing Yale administrators to rein in activist students and colleagues if they want to keep attracting the best and brightest—and if they want to maintain even a fig leaf of ideological diversity.”

The report said the judges cited incidents in which free speech was literally opposed.

The report explained the law school has done almost nothing to address the atmosphere on campus. And one judge told the Free Beacon that some judges already were avoiding its students, although not in any formal boycott way.

“Several judges noted that Yale is the only elite law school that does not employ a single prominent conservative scholar, which they argued had made it more susceptible to groupthink,” the report noted.

Besides the students’ own actions, some judges reported it was hard to evaluate them because of the schools “ideological monoculture” provided no trustworthy professors who could offer evaluations.

EDITOR’S NOTE: With what has been called the “Sovietization” of the Biden administration – including the shocking criminalization of dissent and massive weaponization of the FBI against political opponents – America is being increasingly compared to a third-world or communist dictatorship. Yet America still has one sacred institution that dictatorships from Zimbabwe to communist China don’t have: ELECTIONS. And in reality, there is no reason, despite the regime’s all-out efforts at election rigging, that the tens of millions of decent, right-thinking American voters cannot stop the Biden administration’s ever-expanding madness this November. For that reason, the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine insightfully covers the most electrifying and important races, illuminates the biggest issues, reveals how the latest federal takeover of elections actually violates the law, and much more. Looking forward to 2024, the issue also highlights why, to quote the chairman of a major think tank, Donald Trump “is the most towering political figure in living memory” and the person “most fit to lead” today’s America. It’s all in “STOPPING THE MADNESS: A MIDTERM ELECTION GUIDE FOR VOTERS WHO LOVE AMERICA.”
