Heather MacDonald is a neoconservative writer and a fellow at the similarly neoconservative Manhattan Institute.

MacDonald has cast her lot in with free-speech troll Milo Yiannopoulos with her claim[1] that universities are enganging in suppression of free speech by declining to host his talks as well as those of Charles Murray, co-author of The Bell Curve.

She also popularized the notion of the Ferguson effect, which argues (against all evidence) that police are being hindered in their duties through too much public accountability, specifically via such means as video recordings.
