    Bias Festered 'For Years,' Professor Says BY JACOB GERSHMAN - Staff Reporter of the Sun October 29, 2004A leading scholar of Hebrew literature at Columbia University said yesterday that for years students have complained to him about anti-Israel bias in the classroom.As Columbia University begins to investigate claims from students who say professors routinely promote hatred of Israel, the scholar, Dan Miron, a tenured professor in the Department of Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures, told The New York Sun that the school is awakening to a long-existing problem."It's been going on for years now," Mr. Miron said....

    After a series of ads in the University of Arizona newspaper railed against left-wing professors, a student allegedly reported Professor David Gibbs to the FBI for being "an anti-American communist who hates America." A series of ads have been running in student newspapers across the country charging that universities are dominated by liberal or left-wing professors. The ads are paid for by well-funded groups like Students for Academic Freedom and the Independent Women's Forum. Some of the ads encourage students to report any so-called anti-American faculty or statements made by professors. And that is apparently what happened to David Gibbs,...

    Note: This commentary was delivered by Prison Fellowship President Mark Earley. A professor at a well known liberal arts college became infamous for starting each semester by holding up a Bible and asking, “How many of you believe this book is the Word of God?” One or two undergraduates might have sheepishly raised their hands. The professor would then say, “Do you want to know what I think of this book? This is what I think of it”—and he would hurl the Bible out an open window. Even more astonishing, this display took place at a Christian college. Hostility to...

Massad teaches at Columbia University "The Jews are not a nation.…The Jewish state is a racist state that does not have a right to exist." One might expect these comments to have been uttered by a neo-Nazi or a militant Islamic leader.

    Former Arizona Cardinals football player Pat Tillman was an inspiration for almost all Americans. Even on campus, Tillman's death in Afghanistan caused a good deal of grief, soul-searching and pride in our fighting men and women. But not everyone on campus was pro-Tillman. According to University of Massachusetts graduate student Rene Gonzalez, Tillman was a "pendejo," idiot, who died "in vain." In an opinion piece published in the University of Massachusetts-Amherst Daily Collegian, Gonzalez wrote: "This was a 'G.I. Joe' guy who got what was coming to him. That was not heroism, it was prophetic idiocy. ... He was acting...

But Professor Travis would be wise to sit in on one of Shelby Grantham’s English 5 classes before making his first pronouncement. Grantham is more than just a bad teacher. She’s horrific.

    EDITORIAL: Too stupid to teach? UNLV professor says Republican Party now a haven of slope-browed troglodytes Back in 2002, a survey by the American Enterprise Institute found America's colleges and universities to be a virtually monochrome refuge of the political left. More than 80 percent of most schools' employees were found to be registered Democrats, despite the almost even split between registered Republicans and Democrats among the public at large. The AEI report found one consequence of this lack of diversity was that conservative thinkers tend to be isolated and intimidated on American campuses, with the predictable result that they...

But no one has been quite as insulting as Dr Larry Sechrest, a university professor in the Texan town of Alpine. Last month, he published a 7,000-word essay entitled "A strange little town in Texas", in a small-circulation magazine based in Washington state. Unfortunately, a couple of subscribers who live in Alpine read his indictment of his 5,000 neighbours, two of whom have responded with death threats. "The secret...

    Everyone’s had a professor they know to be extremely liberal or conservative. Some professors simply wear their political beliefs on their sleeves without even knowing it. Usually their political views don’t make their way into the classroom. However, if it happens, it should be done in such a way that would not be construed as an attempt at the political indoctrination of the students in the class. Of course, sometimes those political biases inappropriately make their way into the classroom, as has recently occurred at my school, California University of Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh. I’m a public relations student at Cal...

Instead, the group lit a political firestorm. In the five days since the group bought a $500 full-page ad in the Duke student newspaper -- The Chronicle -- highlighting "massive discrepancies" between the number of registered Republicans and Democrats in several departments, the campus has become embroiled in a spirited debate about political bias both in the classroom and in faculty hiring. The debate has played itself out on the back pages of The Chronicle and...

The education industry — professors, lecturers and other university employees — gave more than $2.4 million to all presidential candidates in the first three quarters of the year, with professors making up the largest group, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. The nonpartisan group, which tracks money in politics, found that nearly $719,000 went to Dean, making educators the third top-donating group among his contributors. Sen.

    Minnesota is adopting new social studies standards, which will replace those of the discredited Profile of Learning. These standards will specify, for the first time, what Minnesota students must know about American and world history. Is it any surprise, then, that they are the subject of controversy? The new standards' most vocal critics hail (predictably) from the educational establishment. Recently, 32 history professors from the University of Minnesota grabbed the media spotlight with a blistering 13-page letter to Education Commissioner Cheri Pierson Yecke. The letter -- which sums up many critics' complaints -- expresses "grave concerns" about the standards, and...

Given that lack of political engagement, I'm grateful for anything that gets students talking about politics, especially the role of politics in the...

    <p>For parents who are spending tens of thousands of dollars in annual tuition fees, for those concerned with intellectual honesty in the academic profession, for college students enrolled in American history courses, and for members of Congress who appropriate taxpayer money to support the American university, the report in this book is a startling, even explosive expose of where the money and their trust are going.</p>

    Monopolies are generally thought of as "bad." Most of the time, they don't serve the public interest and they are incredibly inefficient. And yet, there is one monopoly in America that affects every college student -- the liberal monopoly on professorships. Recently, the Center for the Study of Popular Culture conducted a survey on professors' political views at universities nationwide, including Penn. The results were astounding. Among those Ivy League professors surveyed, 64 percent considered themselves either liberal or somewhat liberal. A mere 6 percent considered themselves conservative or somewhat conservative. In addition to this, 84 percent voted for Al...

    While conservatives smugly and mistakenly believe that they are winning the ideological war because they control talk-radio, the presidency and Congress, their kids are being indoctrinated in leftist thinking in a new and more insidious way on college campus, where 90 percent of professors vote Democratic, according to surveys. Everyone has his own definition of stupidity. My definition is this: Stupidity is paying tens of thousands of dollars to have your kid receive an illiberal education instead of a classical liberal education and to see your offspring enter adulthood thinking like Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton. The new method of...

    This is the time of year when millions of parents have sent their children off to universities. Unfortunately, one price of getting one's children into a top school these days is that they may be subjected to four years of liberal propaganda. Those in academia like to call the liberal orientation of most college faculty a red herring. But objective research continually shows that it is not. The latest data appear in the Aug. 29 issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education. A solid majority of those teaching at both public and private universities described themselves as being either liberal...

    It may be too late to organize anything against this, but interested parties should know that former terrorists/leftist martyrs Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers will be attending the 7:15 showing of the documentary/propagandistic puff piece The Weather Underground Friday night at the Lagoon Cinema in Minneapolis. I found out about this by reading the following (nauseating) review in the U of M's newspaper: More details are at the Lagoon Cinema's website at
  • How YOU Fund a Radical Agenda on America’s Campuses

    The Dirty Dozen How YOU Fund a Radical Agenda on America’s Campuses             Universities across the nation continue to raise tuition rates and complain they are not receiving enough funding from taxpayers. But, how are these schools spending the money in their “tight” budgets? They continually promote leftist ideology, while ignoring the conservative viewpoint. Liberal faculties assign readings by Karl Marx, while they overlook F.A. Hayek. Professors insist their students study John Maynard Keynes, while they disregard Milton Friedman. Students learn more about the work of Cornel West than Thomas Sowell. Worst yet, many academic institutions no longer require...

    Liberal bias runs rampant on Colorado college campuses, conservative students say, and they plan to support a national movement here to bring more balanced viewpoints to higher education. Students for Academic Freedom, founded three months ago by prominent Los Angeles conservative David Horowitz, has 70 chapters nationwide, including five that are forming in Colorado. Their goal is to get their Academic Bill of Rights - ensuring conservative viewpoints in colleges - codified as state law or university policy, according to the mission statement. State Senate President John Andrews, R-Centennial, said he'd like to see it happen with enforcement powers by...

    You have gall, but I have Town Hall Mike S. Adams (archive) September 10, 2003 Dear University Advancement Office: I just went down the hall to check my mail and noticed that you sent me a letter today asking for an “employee contribution” to help the university in this time of budgetary crisis. I put the letter on top of the one from human resources reminding me that my $172 parking fee was due next week. Below that, there is a letter informing me that my health insurance costs are going up next month. At the bottom of the stack,...

    A new report has found liberal speakers outnumber conservative voices at the nation's top universities' graduation ceremonies by a wide margin, confirming to campus critics that students are bombarded with one-sided political points of view. The Center for the Study of Popular Culture, which examined the political views of commencement speakers at the nation's elite colleges and universities, found those with liberal ideas outnumbered conservative speakers 226-15 over a 10-year period. "Commencement speakers at 32 top colleges and universities, including all Ivy League schools, were tracked over a 10-year period and were identified as belonging to one of five categories:...
