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.
I hear you. I went to college in the 60s, which is when and where I started hearing it; but then, even my lesbian department head defended my right to my conservative opinions against the tobacco-stained, greasy Red Diaper socialist history professor who was banging one of the other students (pre-feminism!). The difference was that the nation was solidly, solidly conservative, even though Kennedy had been elected and Johnson was in the White House.
Now, no way. Their "revolution" is well-advanced. But by my reckoning, it only has at most another decade or so to go, since it started in the 30s. The Soviets didn't make it past 70 years, and the Chinese gave way even sooner to free trade; socially, they will change as prosperity enables them. We all need to stay busy keeping the flame for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
