it appears that not even foreign language classes on our nations campuses are immune to the scourge of radical ideology.
Ohio State student Patrick Seaworthy reported in The College Fix that he signed up for a German II class last fall, expecting to learn some of the finer points of German language and conversation. Instead, he quickly discovered that he was the only conservative in a class where learning German took a back seat to discussions of the prowess of Barack Obama, American narcissism, the virtues of socialism, the sad plight of Chicagos teachers, and why the U.S. military is the reason the American education system is broken, just to name a few of the diversionary tactics used in class.
Seaworthy says his first mistake was taking part in a class discussion during the Chicago teachers union protests. After pointing out that an average Chicago teachers salary was already $80,000 a year, his professor reminded him that that salary was only an average. But when he responded that the average person with a college degree only makes about $48,000, it was all downhill from there.
Since the class was conducted at the height of the presidential election campaign, the professor thought nothing of asking her students to compare their intelligence to that of President Obama. And she also made it a habit to continually reinforce the Commander in Chiefs wide-ranging vision for America.
Another topic she favored was pointing out that Germanys high tax rate made for an orderly state . . . and how the taxation that provided free cradle-to-grave healthcare showed that Germany was a country that actually does something with their tax dollars, ...
Perhaps this is why Seaworthy began referring to the four nightly class sessions per week as Dinner for Schmucks.

The adjunct teaching the course was an in-your-face sodomite who would spend most of the class time talking about feminism, and dropping f-bombs.
He would make us read articles out of a magazine called "B1tch", and our assigments were always based on them. One time our assigment was to write how "so-and-so, who moved in with her boyfriend because she couldn't afford her own place, could be a better feminist".
The same thing is happening in Nursing classes. Microbiology is no longer required for a BS in Nursing, so there is more time for political indoctrination in college.
This is rampant in education. Folks, liberals are intolerant SOB’s. We better start fighting back because they are attacking us every which way.
(I)t also appears they're not too strict on proper capitalization either.

Did you write any thing that was a backhanded smack upside the head that went over this teacher’s head? That is the funnest thing to do...
This reminds me of when I was an exchange student in Germany during the 1984 elections. One class was a history / politics class and a big part of the discussion was the election. Probably 9 out of 10 of the German kids were liberal and I argued with them over and over about my support for Reagan. But back then, no one took it personally and we were friends afterward. The teacher, although liberal, was very professional and did not gang up on me and actually made the other kids shut up so I could make my points. It was actually kind of fun being the only person in a class of about 30 supporting Reagan.
I wonder how they all felt about Reagan, after he said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this Wall.”?
Uh, Germany does not have "tax-funded free" healthcare (if you are gainfully employed). Everyone pays for either a private insurance plan or general employee coverage. I'm on a private plan with a 3000 euro/year deductible, so the monthly rate is fairly low. In fact, the healthcare contributions have shown a surplus recently. A major drain is by non-contributing immigrants from you-know-where...(muzzies...) And even that part is not tax-funded, but rather by the contributing payers.
If it was not a class about some aspect of the German language, you were defrauded and should sue to get your money back.
