    If you are openly conservative in a university setting its an environment of hate directed at you.

    If you are a conservative and a Christian you automatically get tagged with a life expectancy number.
    What about if you're a fake blind conservative who hates liberals off-hand?
    Thanks from MaryAnne

    Well, don't be discouraged, be angry. The report says a majority of AMERICANS feel favorably about higher education. This is all on the Republicans. Who, although THEY are a minority, somehow managed to elect most of our current federal government.

    Because critical thinking is not in favor of the platitudes from the past the conservatives are still running on.
    Look at the Trumpsters here at PH alone... they have been voided of any critical thinking for years, and now "trumpet" whatever the orange man says or does in clueless repetition.

    It's a fact that education and the ability to question authority is bad for those who want to live in the past... and it's not as if the GOP would not have openly tried to remove just that even from schools already.

    here’s what the Republican Party of Texas wrote into its 2012 platform as part of the section on education:

    Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.

    Being intellectual now means there are as many genders as you feel. WE have moved past man & woman. So much for science now we are entering the perversion zone. Hey just being progressive.
    Being intellectual in science and math is awesome.



    Self-Identifying Marxist Professors Outnumber Conservatives as College Professors

    June 15, 2016, Spencer Irvine, 2 Comments



    At a recent American Enterprise Institute (AEI) event, panel speakers outlined how self-identifying Marxists outnumber conservatives on college campuses:
    An AEI panel discussion last Wednesday, titled “The Close-Minded Campus? The Stifling of Ideas in American Universities,” focused on the scarcity of conservative professors and students in the social sciences, with the panelists noting that conservatives are outnumbered in the field even by self-proclaimed Marxists.
    About 18 percent of social scientists in the United States self-identify as Marxists, compared to only about 5 percent who identify as conservatives, Dunn and Shields reported.

    Unless you are a Climate scientist, then you are an evil corrupt grant money grubber defaming the honor of the noble fossil fuel corporations.

    The highest proportion of Marxist academics can be found in the social sciences, and there they represent less than 18 percent of all professors (among the social science fields for which we can issue discipline-specific estimates, sociology contains the most Marxists, at 25.5 percent).

    Liberal professors outnumber conservatives nearly 12 to 1, study finds

    Example: man marries woman. Two genders.




    Critical Theory is a broad approach to challenging and destabilizing established knowledge.

    In six short years, Americans regressed from intellectual, insightful, introspective and forward thinking to neanderthals.

    I just went there and took classes. Worked part time. Got a degree. Tried to balance my raging hormones with some shred of dignity. Dropped some shrooms. Played rec sports.

    If anyone around me was persecuting someone, or getting hazed, or raging against the machine... well I'm sure they were lovely people. I never met them.

    Yes. Doesn't that kind of make sense? That people who's job it is to discover new things and new ideas would tend not to be people who define themselves by a label that means "prefers things to remain as they used to be"
