One of the most insidious of liberal characteristics is their mission to go behind your back and program your kids as to their ways of the world. It would be one thing if all sides of a debate were presented and thought provoked. However, liberals are seemingly so paranoid that a touch of logic can obliterate their positions, indoctrinate our kids and turn them into women’s studies loving, tree-hugging, Jew hating, minority-pitying, secular, kids who demand the freedoms this nation has to offer but would flee to Canada before defending them.
Liberals are the first to say that campuses are places that embrace the free and open debate of ideas. Now it would appear there is more ammo to back up the old assertion that this is false. According to a recent study cited by Howard Kurtz,
72 percent of those teaching at American universities and colleges are liberal and 15 percent are conservative. The imbalance is almost as striking in partisan terms, with 50 percent of the faculty members surveyed identifying themselves as Democrats and 11 percent as Republicans. The disparity is even more pronounced at the most elite schools, where, according to the study, 87 percent of faculty are liberal and 13 percent are conservative.
Now while liberals don’t see anything wrong with one-sided presentations and debate, it does seem to be part of an overall plan. In order to deprogram kids from the ignorant and unenlightened views passed down from imbecilic parents, kids must be told that their experience-limited opinions have merit equal in weight to their elders.
“What’s most striking is how few conservatives there are in any field,” said Robert Lichter, George Mason University professor and co-author of the study. “There was no field we studied in which there were more conservatives than liberals or more Republicans than Democrats. It’s a very homogenous environment, not just in the places you’d expect to be dominated by liberals.”
According to Kurtz’ piece,
The findings, by Lichter and fellow political science professors Stanley Rothman of Smith College and Neil Nevitte of the University of Toronto, are based on a survey of 1,643 full-time faculty at 183 four-year schools. The researchers relied on 1999 data from the North American Academic Study Survey, the most recent comprehensive data available.
As someone who has personally experienced the intolerance of some Hollywood liberals, I would agree with any claim that your being hired and/or later fired could depend on your keeping your mouth shut about your conservatism, while liberals skillfully recite their hateful and mean talking points against all things right. They do so with no sense of perspective or consideration of anyone else’s beliefs. Some liberals believe they are intellectually and morally superior to anyone who is dumb enough not to think as they do.
Now while the study may be ambiguous as to provable liberal indoctrination, some propaganda must be getting through when students are willing to storm and take over school buildings, protest resulting in police confrontations, lay down in the middle of the street and block traffic, and get arrested for their left-wing causes.
Kurtz on the study’s conclusion:
The professors and instructors surveyed are, strongly or somewhat, in favor of abortion rights (84 percent); believe homosexuality is acceptable (67 percent); and want more environmental protection “even if it raises prices or costs jobs” (88 percent). What’s more, the study found, 65 percent want the government to ensure full employment, a stance to the left of the Democratic Party.
I would have more respect for liberals if adults would debate adults, but using their influence over students, kindergarten through college, is a gross abuse of their power. But then again, since when has liberals not abused what power they have in the name of their “superiority?”
