Bill Mullen

Purdue University

Bill Mullen is a professor of English and American Studies at Purdue University. As stated in his university profile, he specializes in “American Literature and Studies, African American Studies, Cultural Studies, Working Class Studies, Critical Race Theory, and Marxist Theory.” Mullen also serves as a member of the organizing collective for the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel and is the co-founder of a national, campus-based ANTIFA organization. 

As part of the Campus Antifascist Network (CAN), an ANTIFA-aligned group for university academics, Mullen described his role as “to drive racists off campuses and to protect the most vulnerable from fascist attack.

This sentiment is reflected in the resources listed on the CAN website. Not only does CAN declare that free-speech does not extend to “far-right” groups, it actively encourages students and faculty to confront groups on campus that they have labeled far-right, and lobbies universities to ban them. 

Mullen certainly believes that Turning Point USA should be banned from campus – he has previously described TPUSA as an “alt-right” group. 

As Faculty Advisor for Purdue’s Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and part of the organizing collective for the Campaign for Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, Bill spends much of his time demonizing Israel as an Apartheid State and advocates for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement (BDS). 

Mullen and SJP at Purdue both have a history of defending terrorists, with the latter writing in 2009 that it is a “myth” that Hamas is a terrorist organization.

Mullen has also lauded terrorists, as Ghassan Kanafi is featured prominently on his personal blog. Kanafi is a Marxist-Lennist Terrorist known for his role in the Lod Airport Massacre in Israel that tragically killed 26 innocent civilians and injured an additional 80. His blog itself is titled, “From the River to the Sea,” a popular phrase used by those who want to wipe Israel off the map from the Jordan River to the Medditeranian Sea.

Mullen has also used his Facebook to call for the release of Khader Adnan, who is a convicted terrorist with Palestian Islamic Jihad.

Professor Watchlist is a project of Turning Point USA, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
