    GOPUSA ^ | June 20, 2006 | Jim Brown (Agape Press)
    (AgapePress) -- Johns Hopkins University (JHU) in Baltimore, Maryland, is being accused of condoning mob censorship. An academic freedom and individual rights watchdog group is decrying school officials' part in an apparent attempt to silence a conservative newspaper. In May, the Carrolton Record published an issue critical of a group that brought a pornographic film director to the JHU campus. Afterward, hundreds of copies of the newspaper were stolen; however, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), the university administration "turned a blind eye to the theft." According to the Record's editor, about half of the 600...

    New College conservative carves a niche on campus The first time I heard the term "openly Republican" was the first day of freshman orientation at New College. My initial reaction was to laugh. Prior to this, I had only heard terms like "openly" and "closet" when referring to personal qualities that go against the social norm. I always considered being a member of either of the two main parties to be relatively normal, as the majority of Americans register with one of the two. But that all was soon to change. Even the definition of normal changed, the day I...

    Some of us Pennsylvania Dutchmen have long regarded Bucknell as the Berkeley of the Keystone State. In issue after issue, the crack staff of student reporters at The Counterweight alternative student newspaper shows us how right we are. Published privately by the Bucknell University Conservatives Club, The Counterweight offers up investigative stories of the underside of college life there that the regular campus newspaper treads lightly upon, that is, if they cover such happenings at all. “Bucknell currently claims to have 402 faculty members and 392 administrators,” according to the latest issue of The Counterweight. “The university has rightly added...

    Thursday, March 30, 2006 Study Casts Doubt on Claims That Conservative Students Face Discrimination in Classes By JENNIFER JACOBSON A study showing that conservative and liberal students do equally well in courses with politically charged content casts doubt on conservative activists' claims that liberal faculty members routinely discriminate against their conservative students. The study found no difference in the grades conservative and liberal students receive in sociology, cultural anthropology, and women's-studies courses. It also found that conservative students tend to earn higher grades than their liberal classmates in business and economics courses. Titled "What's in a Grade? Academic Success and...

    ( -A conservative student group has been acquitted of a charge that it violated DePaul University's anti-harassment policy when it conducted a protest against affirmative action, the school announced Monday. However, the DePaul Conservative Alliance (DCA) was found guilty of violating the Code of Student Responsibility and censured. In January, the DCA held an "affirmative action bake sale" to mock affirmative action policies in higher education. The protests, which have occurred on other college and university campuses, involve white and Asian students being charged more for baked goods than blacks and Hispanics. The mock bake sales are designed to criticize...

    2006: Turning point for young conservatives Posted: January 5, 2006 By Hans Zeiger Something big is going on in America, but few are yet aware of it. It is a generational shift comparable to that of the infamous '60s, and it will involve as much revolt and upheaval. In this case, revolution is desperately needed, for the previous revolution has almost destroyed the country. The new revolution will repair the country. Yet 2006 will not be the beginning of the revolution – it has already been gathering steam now for several years. But it will, I predict, commence the vigorous...

    An independent alumni association at the University of California-Los Angeles has offered rewards of up to $100 for students willing to out politically biased professors. Founded by Andrew Jones, a 2003 graduate of the public university, the Bruin Alumni Association has been formed to curb “an exploding crisis of political radicalism on campus” which is “endangering the very core of UCLA — the undergraduate experience,” according to the association’s website. Jones, on the group’s website, says he experienced “political harassment, violence, intimidation and biased teaching” during his time at UCLA, adding his experience is “entirely typical for any student who...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A conservative alumni group dedicated to "exposing the most radical professors" at the University of California at Los Angeles is offering to pay students $100 to record classroom lectures of suspect faculty. The Web site of the Bruin Alumni Association also includes a "Dirty Thirty" list of professors considered by the group to be the most extreme left-wing members of the UCLA faculty, as well as profiles on their political activities and writings. UCLA Chancellor Albert Carnesale on Thursday denounced the campaign as "reprehensible," and school officials warned that selling or distributing recordings of classroom lectures...

The 40-year-old partner at Sidley, Austin, Brown and Wood in Washington, D.C., who served in the White House Counsel’s office under President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2003 and has chaired committees for the Federalist Society, the conservative and libertarian lawyers’ group, entered the program in 1988, in the immediate aftermath of the Reagan-era culture wars.

    Protests on college campuses are becoming more sophisticated and more often staged by conservative students. Some conservatives say activism is growing because of a national network reaching out to students who've felt too threatened in the past to speak up on liberal campuses. "The tides are turning on college campuses," said Jason Mattera, spokesman for the conservative Young America's Foundation in Herndon, Va. "Conservative students will not take liberal garbage anymore." At the University of Colorado at Boulder, student Republicans made national news by holding an anti-affirmative-action bake sale where the "suggested donation" for a cookie depended on the race...

    WASHINGTON — Though Christopher Flickinger calls himself "dean" and poses in parodistic photos waving a small American flag and looking stern, he says he's never been more serious about eliminating what he claims is pervasive anti-conservatism on college campuses today. "When I was on campus, I had no help," the recent Ohio State University graduate told "I was harassed, intimidated, shouted down." Flickinger, schooled in broadcast journalism, said he wants to provide the support he never had as a lonely conservative in college. That's why in November he launched the Network of College Conservatives to act in part as...

Professors cancel class to encourage their students to attend a protest against the “Bush Regime,” campus leaders are forced into mandatory “diversity/sensitivity training,” and some far-Left students seem to believe that a liberal arts education consists of little more than painting a portrait of Bill Clinton. Tuition money – in excess of $40,000 per pupil – is wasted on courses such as "The Unbearable Whiteness of Barbie" and “Stupidity,” a mandatory course for some freshmen, which compares incidents...

    Young Republicans buck conventional campus wisdom By Curtis Miller In the 1960s, pot-smoking, tie-dyed hippies made up the university alternative lifestyle of an era. Today, staunch young conservatives are looking to find a similar niche on the other side of the political spectrum. In a country run by Republicans, college conservatives are steadily becoming a counter-culture to be reckoned with and more than the footnote they formerly were presumed to be. According to one study from the Harvard Institute of Politics, before the 2004 election, as many as 31 percent of college students were identifying themselves as Republicans, in comparison...

But within a day of posting his flyers, he reports, all but three had been torn down. In addition, Kirby says he discovered about 25 copies of...

If these guys get it, we're really in trouble. Folks, meet the crybabies.

For white students and faculty, a cookie cost (depending on the school) $1; blacks and Hispanics could buy one for a lot less. The principle, the protesters observed, was just that governing university admission practices: rewarding people differently based on race. Indignant school officials charged the bake-sale organizers with “creating a hostile climate” for minority...

    It has become almost a rite of passage for the beleaguered conservative journalist to quit the media and pen an expose. The story is usually frightening, but rarely valuable--because though it always exposes, it seldom explains. My own expose aims to do just that, and to do so in new territory as well--on America's college campuses. For the past sixteen months I have been a weekly opinion columnist for UCLA's newspaper, the Daily Bruin, and have seen exactly how media bias works. Last year, the Viewpoint editor for the Daily Bruin, who was my boss at the time, confided to...
  • The Conscience of a Campus Conservative

    My last column, "Forget Free Speech, Liberals Don't Tolerate Campus Conservatives," drew the ire and attention of thousands. Published online by GOPUSA and the Washington Times, it sparked still more debate on the issue of liberal bias on campus. Conservative professors from North Carolina, Wisconsin and across the country e-mailed their support. One celebrity endorsement came from former U.S. House Historian Christina Jeffrey, who currently presides over the South Carolina Association of Scholars. In her words, this past column was my "best ever." Still more students, parents and alumni stepped up, sending e-mails and notes, while weighing in on countless...

    East Lansing High School Censors Student Newspaper Distribution of independent publication prohibitted EAST LANSING, Mich. – East Lansing High School student Tyler Whitney denounced the censorship of the Right Way, an independent conservative newspaper that students were barred from distributing. “Our paper featured respectful opinions from well-informed and open-minded moderates, libertarians, and conservatives. It was not disruptive,” explained the Right Way’s editor Tyler Whitney. Whitney faced punishment for distributing a paper, which he considered to be a part of his constitution rights to free expression. Before the administration halted the distribution of their publication, the writers stood in the hallway...

    BERKELEY, California - The latest elections show a country divided half and half between red and blue, but you would not know it to look at today's public universities. They have become a haven for 1960s-style radicals. So when University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill said the Americans killed on 9-11 deserved it, his words did not seem all that shocking on many campuses. Churchhill is not the only radical Left professor who spews anti-American statements on campus these days. In fact, Dan Flynn says nearly every public university in the U.S. is dominated by the Left and an overwhelming...

    Fighting for the right to be right Political affiliation jeopardizes conservative student's office The intolerant atmosphere that conservatives at Cal face has, once again, been blatantly demonstrated by our elected officials. Judicial Council nominee Amaris White appeared before the ASUC Senate last Wednesday, for her confirmation hearing. After the Senators voted in favor of White’s appointment, they found out about her conservative affiliation. This prompted senators who had confirmed her to seek a reversal in their decision. As elected officials, it is the ASUC's responsibility to represent the student body and as such must allow Amaris White to serve on...

    Regardless of age, we have all heard the phrase, "First Amendment Rights," bandied about. Free speech has been the rallying cry of the liberal elite since the 60s, and every time violent protesters are beaten back by police or cordoned off from a rally, the ACLU comes a calling. However, the same team of trial lawyers, rebel billionaires and Deaniacs turn a blind eye toward the abuses of their academic brethren. America’s colleges and universities are anything but free speech zones. Contrary to their mantra of universal tolerance, Stalinist professors and administrators see intellectual diversity as a disease. Unpopular viewpoints,...

    Making his way through Framingham High School's construction zone, Dan Devlen heads from the old, dark Flyer News television studio to its future: a new, more expansive headquarters in another school wing. The school's administrative media director said the new location will give the television production and live morning news program more breathing room, with a new studio, a classroom and office space. "I like to say that we've been working in the Millennium Falcon of Han Solo, and now we're moving into the Enterprise," Devlen said, describing the move to larger digs. "All brand new and nice, and I'm...

    Recently, a group of Hudson High School students and parents have charged that some teachers at HHHS, specifically in the Social Studies department, are teaching with a liberal bias and stifling the conservative students' opinions. In addition, these students have criticized the administration for violating their commitment to allow students their First Amendment rights. This issue began with the creation of a Conservative Club at Hudson High School. The co-presidents of the new club, Chris Bowler and James Mellilo, hung posters around the school associating themselves with the High School Conservative Clubs of America (HSCCA), and included the Web site,...

    Arrogant censorshipDavid Limbaugh (archive) February 11, 2005 | Print | Send An incident at Hudson High School in Massachusetts provides an object lesson in the occasional arrogance of liberal bias. A group of students decided to form a conservative club as "a counterweight" to the majority political viewpoint at the school. Student Chris Bowler put up posters to publicize the club's first meeting in December. Within hours, school administrators reportedly removed the posters because they contained a link to the Website of High School Conservative Clubs of America (HSCCA), a national organization for high school conservative clubs. HSCCA's Website included links...
