Michigan Students Protest Libs

, Deborah Lambert, 2 Comments

In a bold move on today’s politically correct campuses, a group of brave libertarian students at the University of Michigan recently decided to stand up and tell the school that they were, in effect, “mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.”

In a no-holds-barred letter to the powers that be, the students said they were “sick and tired of being treated like second-class citizens, watching their administration fawn over and pander to a vocal group of radical students while they are treated like pariahs” according to The College Fix.

In the letter, they explained that while “nearly every course we have taken has been taught from a liberal perspective by a liberal professor,” there is a “general lack of opposing viewpoints students have access to.”

Since college campuses should represent a free marketplace of ideas, the students suggested that the school make opposing viewpoints available by offering economics courses “taught by competent and fair free market professors; that history courses taught from perspectives other than the postmodern be made available; that for every course on race and ethnicity, there be a course on intellectual diversity which includes liberal, conservative and libertarian cultural and political ideas.”

Moreover, they asked “that an increased budget be developed and extra-curricular programs created to help foster this intellectual diversity outside of the classroom. This would allow students from across the disciplines to engage in fair minded and open discussion with their peers about all ideologies, not just those that the university sanctions.”

    I cannot find the article from “The College Fix” nor the open letter supposedly from the students.

    Can you give me the source for this write-up?
