......................Psychologists Yoel Inbar and Joris Lammers, based at Tilburg University in the Netherlands, surveyed a roughly representative sample of academics and scholars in social psychology and found that In decisions ranging from paper reviews to hiring, many social and personality psychologists admit that they would discriminate against openly conservative colleagues.
This finding surprised the researchers. The survey questions were so blatant that I thought wed get a much lower rate of agreement, Mr. Inbar said. Usually you have to be pretty tricky to get people to say theyd discriminate against minorities.
One question, according to the researchers, asked whether, in choosing between two equally qualified job candidates for one job opening, they would be inclined to vote for the more liberal candidate (i.e., over the conservative).
More than a third of the respondents said they would discriminate against the conservative candidate. One respondent wrote in that if department members could figure out who was a conservative, they would be sure not to hire them.
Mr. Inbar, who volunteered for the Obama campaign in 2008, cautions that the finding reflects only what respondents said they would do not necessarily what they actually would do in real life......................
....Harvey Mansfield, a conservative professor of government at Harvard University, argues that the anti-conservative bias is real and pronounced. He says conservatism is just not a respectable position to hold in the academy, where Republicans are caricatured as Fox News enthusiasts who listen to Rush Limbaugh.
Beyond that, conservatives represent a distinct minority on college and university campuses. A 2007 report by sociologists Neil Gross and Solon Simmons found that 80 percent of psychology professors at elite and non-elite universities are Democrats.....

Meanwhile, Chick-Fil-A is being barbequed for merely stating a principle.
This is what you said. “If you want something done about liberal indoctrination in our universities, best you take this seriously...” So, has the education system been taken over by communists or hasn’t it? Make up your mind.
The do discriminate against normal students and in employment every chance they get.
There is a reason for the total liberal circle jerk the “smart” people do. And these totaltarian idiots are going to engineer our health care and the global government. :)
Not completely. If they had complete control, home education would not exist at all. QED
Make up your mind.
At least I have one, instead of a collection of paralyzing opinions, or should I say, "excuses."
Now it’s documented.
Maybe conservatives can get special Equal Opportunity Employment protection and business set-asides and loans from the government now that it is documented that they are discriminated against.
So, do you come here to learn things or just to insult people and try to start fights. Go away, little person.
And by the way, home schooling is not part of the “education system”. People home school their kids to get them OUT of the “education system”. Sometimes you should keep quiet rather than show how stupid you are just because you want to start an argument.
I’ll say it one more time so you might be able to understand. Liberals took over the “EDUCATION SYSTEM” decades ago.
Figure out a RICO violation and now you’re in business. Parents need to get involved in where their kids go to school.
University of Oregon has over 400 profs and 2 are Repub. No they don’t discriminate.
Pray for America
I was just wondering, how many college or university professors got there degrees via the GI Bill? LOL!!!
Since it is legal for the government to openly discriminate against white males, and private companies are forced to do so at the point of a lawsuit, why should these seem strange at all?
ObamaCare pales in comparison to affirmative action; people lament the government mortgaging their grandchildren’s futures when whites can’t even support a family anymore. Education and decent jobs are out of reach, but don’t take my word for it - look around you. The demographic maelstrom is quickly becoming obvious to all.
They go on and learn a trade, which gives them a more successful life.
Liberalism is its own punishment.
Why would they be afraid?
No one is going to punish them.
Now go pay your taxes - college professors that hate you need the money. :)
>> Conformation of something we we always suspected.
An essential component of the mindless horde better known as communists, socialists, and leftwingers — the ultimate collection of degenerate will and failure.
No, but they can decide who gets hired at the university.
You came here pitching despair. You don't have a case.
Go away, little person.
I gave you reason to have hope that we can collapse this system and replace it. I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't even read the link you were given. Instead, you cling to "the system" as an unalterable reality, effectively accepting defeat.
What the hell are you doing here then? Little people pitch despair. Some of us have work to do.
Go out and try to change the education system. And while you’re at it try to change the republican party. Or you can crap in a hat and watch it fill up before you’ve made any positive changes.
The only way to change the education system is to build a new one of private schools. The only way to change the republican party is to start a new party.
