Every conservative student should have the site bookmarked.
Holy smokes. The posting just above this one is about muslims in prison bullying inmate into joining their faith, or else. Is there any difference in the professors using their power over the students?
If students of conscience would stand up to these leftist/progressive so called professors, they could start getting rid of them.
One thing I found out quick on any college campus is that a tenured position is a popularity contest, has nothing to do with competence. This is particularly true in the soft courses.
I understand that these kids want to graduate; but a boycott of bad teachers is a very effective weapon, particularly when you are talking about the students or their parents money.
That title makes it sound like the Constitution is subservient to criminal law.
Academia is where the left dominates and begins its propoganda on the American public. It starts from elementary school all the way through to college. I went to high school during the Reagan years and every social sciences teacher I had hammered him personally and politically,and I lived in a state that President Reagan took twice by over 60% in his elections. The left knows where to strike and academia plus the media are where they staked their flags and frankly they’ve had decades of almost unopposed opposition from conservatives and non-liberals. Rooting them out completely will never be accomplished. Sadly, conservative ideas and principles are not articulated very well by our side. Our politicians, with rare exceptions, don’t do a very good job of it. We can’t rely on just Rush, Levin, Savage, and local radio hosts to spread the word. If I’m judging things as they stand today I’m not hopeful for the future of our country.
Fifty years ago I was a Political Science major at a highly esteemed east coast university. This crap was going on even then, so it is not a new phenomenon. I haven’t been back for forty five years and have no intention of attending my fiftieth reunion. I can’t remember the last time I gave them any money. When I hear someone is interested in the school I make an attempt to dissuade them.
This began in earnest in the late 1960s and early 1970s, during the Vietnam War.
One of the great fears of young men during that time was the lie that unless they had one of any number of deferments, that at any moment they could be “drafted, sent to Vietnam, and diiiieee!”
The truth was anything but that. The vast majority of soldiers wounded and killed in Vietnam belonged to combat branches in “hot” or “medium” combat zones. These were a tiny minority of all soldiers in Vietnam, must less the majority of all US soldiers, who remained in the US or went to Europe.
Even more, any soldier of good character, in a combat unit who wanted to reenlist and stay with his unit, would get that slot, so the unit would get no replacement. It was not uncommon for soldiers to stay on the front for three or four tours.
By the time of Vietnam, the ratio of combat support and combat service support personnel to combat personnel was about 15 to 1.
In any event, back in the US, radical professors would sometimes blackmail their own students with the refrain: “Unless you go to the anti-war demonstration, you will fail this class, lose your deferment, be drafted, and be sent to Vietnam and diiiieee!”
Students, already frightened a lot by the media, and tantalized by the numerous draft deferments offered by congress, were psychologically brow beaten.
The Tet Offensive, in January of 1968, caused by the last ditch effort of the Viet Cong, who had almost been destroyed by the Phoenix Program, effectively wiped them out, but was declared a huge defeat for the US by the media, starting with Walter Cronkite. From that point on, the Democrat party and the media did everything in their power to undermine the war effort.
This gave campus radicals everything they needed to create chaos. So from then, until president Nixon ended the draft in January of 1973, America was effectively in a Civil War between a tiny number of radicals supported by the media and the Democrats, with passive support from terrified young people.
The radicals were already losing, because after the Kent State incident, a lot of the impulse to radicalism ended, because the mood was that the government had finally lost patience with the radicals.
The end of the draft killed the anti-war movement. All that was left were universities filled with a new generation of leftist professors. And there they remained.
