True, the student could have been removed for being disruptive.
However, if the student was making a more politically correct argument, teachers are more likely to tolertate the rudeness, or fear backlash if they take action against them.
Was recently reading a speech by Amy Wax, J.D., M.D., and professor of Law at U. of Penn. She had been attacked after her politically incorrect opinions were published.https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/are-we-free-to-discuss-americas-real-problems/
"It is well documented that American universities today, more than ever before, are dominated by academics on the left end of the political spectrum. How should these academics handle opinions that depart, even quite sharply, from their “politically correct” views? The proper response would be to engage in reasoned debate—to attempt to explain, using logic, evidence, facts, and substantive arguments, why those opinions are wrong. This kind of civil discourse is obviously important at law schools like mine, because law schools are dedicated to teaching students how to think about and argue all sides of a question. But academic institutions in general should also be places where people are free to think and reason about important questions that affect our society and our way of life—something not possible in today’s atmosphere of enforced orthodoxy.
