Fellow Students Stand Up To Outrageous Bias and Left-Wing Hat
The College Fix ^ | March 12, 2014 | Kyle Brooks

Posted on 03/25/2014 7:21:23 AM PDT by Academiadotorg

Two weeks ago, a video that I filmed of a radical guest lecture in a required sociology course at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater went viral.

In it, intolerant SEIU member Eyon Biddle claimed that “politics is fueled by white rage” and that Republican success in 2010 was helped by racism.

Appalled by what I was hearing, I took out my phone and began to record. Based off of how quickly the video spread, becoming national news in less than three days, as well as from the reaction I have gotten from people nationwide, it is clear to me that people are hungry for the truth about what is happening in our universities.

For every video we see of a propaganda-laden rant, there are scores of radical lectures in this country that go undocumented. Students and parents want to know what is happening in their universities, which are charging record-high tuitions.

We all know the American campus leans left, and conservatives can only hope a right-of-center speaker will occasionally be invited to speak to a class. We object however, when a speaker tells an impressionable class of young people that Republicans are racist and all the problems of our society is caused by rich, racist, white conservatives.KyleFoxNews

It is important that this type of hate speech is exposed, because statements like Mr. Biddle’s are being presented in a setting of higher education as facts, when in reality his statements lack truth and empirical evidence. Imagine if a right-wing politician running for office came into class and said the same things – but about liberals – with no evidence to support his claim, and then topped it off by saying if people do not agree with him they are racists. He would have been run off the campus and the professor would have been ridiculed for inviting such an extreme person to say such untrue things to the class.

Since Eyon Biddle is liberal, however, the professor feels empowered to invite him to speak, knowing already what he plans to say, because the culture of the campus supports inaccurate rhetoric like Mr. Biddle’s.

This feeling is so pervasive on American campuses that my professor didn’t even consider it would be appropriate to invite a conservative to give an alternative perspective to what Eyon Biddle said until the story went national. Had I not recorded the video, allowing the lecture to be heard by millions, Eyon Biddle’s rant would have been the final word on the issue of race and politics in that class of young people whose political identity is being molded during these crucial years.

All young conservatives, and even people who just do not believe liberal propaganda is right for our schools, ought to feel emboldened to stand up to outrageous bias and left-wing hate wherever it presents itself. College students should not be afraid to pull out their phones and begin recording an extreme lecture, even if their grade and reputation among the administration will suffer.

If we want to see positive change, so colleges once again are fair places where scholarly free thought and expression are promoted, we need to stand up and reject far left radicalism in our classrooms. Students and parents need to let professors know that we will no longer tolerate bias that smears conservatism as racist and hateful. It takes courage and resolve, but if we as conservatives demand change, and declare enough is enough, than the left-wing campus culture will finally begin to turn around.

Conservatives don’t try to polarize politics along racial lines to win elections. Rather, they advance their message of small government and personal freedom to all Americans, of every race. Conservative policies promote the most economic growth and prosperity, which improves the lives of every American, especially the poorest among us.

I don’t know a single Republican who wouldn’t vote for somebody because they were of a different race. Conservatives come from all backgrounds, and are united by a common belief that small government will increase prosperity and help all people. Rants like Eyon Biddle’s to my class seizes on politics of division, to pit Americans against each other to help one side win elections, and distorts realities and damages our country.

If this nation were less polarized, if people who still believe in politics of hate were exposed, and if all people were viewed as equals politically, then many of the problems with politics today would be eliminated.

If you will spell-check your title, you have a chance of staying on the subject.

Also, if you would copy the links, it would be more convenient for folks.

UPDATED: March 6, 2014 – A University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus spokeswoman contacted The College Fix to note the professor had a classroom decorum policy on the syllabus that states: “Although I do not mind if you bring food or drink, please be discreet. Remember to turn off cell phones before entering the classroom and place them out of sight. No pagers, cell phones, MP3 players, PDAs, or other such electronic gadgets are allowed to be used in class.”

Gee, I wonder why? I mean, I can understand no MP3 players, or cell phone use for talking. But I am sure they also don't want students recording them, because what they are doing is not teaching anything, other than political bias and indoctrination.

College "education" today is one of the biggest scams/ripoffs of all time.

People here keep talking about their "liberal or left wing" friends. I don't have any of those. I don't associate with them. My cousin is sheriff in our county. I don't vote for him because he is a dimocrat. Recently he changed parties to republican for this up coming election. He has a couple of republican candidates running against him in the primary, which he should win easily. No dims are in the dim election side, so he wins this, he wins sheriff again. But I heard that he jumped sides because he was afraid that he would be held responsible for Obama and was afraid he might lose the race because of Obama, so he changed parties. So, really I don't think he has changed in his head or heart, he changed to keep his office. Thus, I will not vote for him again, even if he wins easily without my vote. I simply do not have, nor do I associate with liberals. The Bible clearly tells me NOT to associate with people who do wrong and are unrepentant of it. So, I clearly don't have left wing friends nor see their hats. Sorry for the long response to your post! :-)

ALL college students are required to take sociology. I was forced in to that stupid class back in college. It was the most worthless stupid class I ever had to take. It is PURE shameless indoctrination. They didn’t even pretend to be objective. It was a “It’s all whitey’s fault” and if you are a white male in class you need to know all the problems are cause by you.

ME EITHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

during Bush v Gore I called my liberal friend to tell her about Gore getting campaign money from the Budist monks - illegal!

and she said "she HAD to vote democrat because if Bush won she would lose her state job."

I said she was smart enough to get another job but questioned her voting for a traitor rather than to do so.

I told her she was too stupid to be my friend and didn't talk to her again. I did keep in touch with her hubby (conservative) and of course she didn't lose her job after Bush won.

But since then I have made sure that I don't have dem friends!!!

At my alma mater you could take any social science which included economics so I took that instead of the indocrination classes.
