College Republicans Compiling List of Liberal Professors at Ohio School UT College Republicans President Matt Rubin, a junior majoring in political science and public administration, says the list is not an attempt to bash professors who have liberal ideas, but an attempt to speak out for students who may have been victims of political bias.

The University of Toledo's College Republicans are compiling a list of liberal professors who they claimed have a bias against conservative students.

The list will include professors who students say have let their political views interfere with the way they interact with students in the classroom.

UT College Republicans President Matt Rubin, a junior majoring in political science and public administration, said the list is not an attempt to bash professors who have liberal ideas, but instead, it is an attempt to speak out for students who may have been victims of the bias, which was then reflected in their grade.

Why don’t they just compile a list of the conservative profs? It would be a lot easier. Well, on second thought, it would probably be a lot harder trying to find them, but the list would be much shorter.

Wouldn’t it be easier to compile the much shorter list of conservative professors?

In my experience it would be basically everyone minus maybe one or two (at best) and then rate level of free speech violations and classroom indoctrination activities, lectures, and suggested and required reading materials. Call a spade a spade. Basically I would build a rating system. Which is not in anyway orienting toward a liberal cry of free speech violation rather than rating the facts and put each on a scale with a built in mechanism for unsure or open to opposing opinions.

I would guess there are a few enclaves of conservative thought. Aren’t engineering departments usually conservative?

This is very good. Post names, addresses, phone numbers, vidio of leftist lectures, writings, etc. If they want to be liberal, then they get to be liberal. The wourld should see ahd hear.

I can only remember one prof at my college who was an “outed” conservative/Republican. The rest, well, you know what they were. I remember one prof talking about the “good things” that could happen if the U.S. went to a socialist form of government. Well, all of these years later and we’re here at that point unfortunately.

That’s the funny thing about “liberalism”.

They have to hide their true beliefs from adults who don’t view them as authority figures,

or they’ll get ridiculed and booted.

“Wouldn’t it be easier to compile the much shorter list of conservative professors?”

No! No! I'm a college student. We want these professors names listed on the internet and associated with academically dishonest behavior. That way when a potential employer or a publicist googles them, this information will be public and readily available! The one thing that professors absolutely fear is being accused of being academically dishonest. It will ruin their reputation or at the very least call it into question and put them in a position to defend their reputation. This is a good plan. Out any biased professor regardless of party affiliation.

I suffered at the hands of a couple of liberal profs who couldn’t believe anyone would actually oppose them out loud.

Thankfully, I went to a rather conservative school. We even had a political science prof who was conservative, and ethical enough NOT to say so in class.

Doesn’t “making a list” imply there’s at least one conservative? Wouldn’t that be great? One “token” on a “free speech for liberals only” campus. It would be a dream come true. ( and here’s what’s sad - I’m not being sarcastic)

I am sure the Conservative professors are not spouting THEIR personal politics in front of the class room... so yes, they would be harder to find.

Yeah, it would be faster to list the 2-3 who aren’t liberal.

It's very simple: legitimate students need to audio record their liberal professors through out the semester, make public their objections to certain statements, let the professors counter with denials, and the conservative students then release the audio to back up their claims and show the professor(s) as the liar(s) they are.

Rope-a-dope using their own words vs. their denials. Could be fun.

BTW - the students, if possible, need to make sure the recorder is not near them so as to throw off the scent of the "betrayer". In the past it was perfectly fine to walk up to the front of the class and leave a recorder there for best quality. Chances are a lot of professors have nixed that idea and surely would after such a proposed "sting" was played out.

That's why a whole semester should be recorded at classes/lectures to ensure a good volume of outrageous statements so that when the shoe is dropped and the professors counter with a "no-record policy" the point will have already well made.

This could be a coordinated effort across the country which would surely produce cries of censorship but would a) make the professors feel like they are recorded at any moment and thus will stunt their outrageous dogma and b) would create a valuable launchpad to take on the clear bias in hiring/tenure of professors, administration officials, etc demonstrated at colleges/universities across the country.

There needs to be a nationwide movement to demand academic freedom for students and a balance of views among the faculty.

Yes, start with the faculty directory. Cross our the hard sciences and math and the 1 conservative in the history department. The rest are liberals.

“Makes good sense.”

It baffles me as to why conservative college students don’t take advantage of computer technology. How would this be any different than youtube? I have digitally recorded lectures that would absolutely floor the public. It includes class discourse among the students. If something like this was ever posted on the internet along with a photo of the professor who is lecturing, at the very least this professor would have a lot of explaining to do to his academic cohorts. Keep in mind, professors do not like other professors who make a bad name for all of them. They don’t want the same heat coming down on them the town halls are generating.

I wish someone would take the time to make this available to students like me. I do not have the technology skills to do it. Students need the ability to maintain anonymity so that we are not academically punished while still trying to maintain our GPA’s.

Please read my posts. I am a college student who has been asking for this. We need to do this just like youtube is being used at the town halls. I have digitally recorded lectures that would make it almost impossible for this particular professor to defend himself.

I wonder where the “Duke Rape Hoax 88” are now? Are they picketing the pedophile who was selling his child for sex?

(crickets...)

I would suggest you go to Ann Coulter's site, anncoulter.com. When she puts up her own videos from one or another TV appearance, they play on a different site -- not YouTube -- which site bills itself, specifically, as ''the conservative alternate to YouTube''.

Might be what you (and your classmates) are looking for.

FReegards!

Good job!

My wife recently recorded a professor that turned everything in his class to porn. He was porn obsessed. She took the tapes and played them for the dean. The professor was called in immediately and her next class was totally different. With “minders” sitting in too.

The professor was dismissed at the end of the semester.

BTW She received an A for the class.
