Should Colleges Implement “Affirmative Action” For Conservatives?

404

No one will soon mistake the New York Times’ Frank Bruni for a Trump-loving conservative Republican, but he is at least aware enough to emerge from his NYC liberal bubble every now and again, blink his eyes, and make some halfway-decent observations about the world. That’s more than can be said for many professors and administrators in the world of higher education, which – as Bruni points out in his recent column – is something that at least a few colleges are trying to fix.

Following the (shocking, surprising, omg the world is ending) election of Donald Trump last November, colleges across the country began to wonder…were they keeping their students trapped inside a liberal biosphere that bore little to no resemblance to the rest of the country?

“After the election I sensed, from talking to leaders of colleges, a lot of soul searching about the fact that college presidents and students assumed that one thing was going to happen on Election Day and it did not,” Scott Jaschik, the editor of Inside Higher Ed, told Bruni in an interview. “Some people woke up the day after the election and realized that every surrounding county voted in a different way than the college did.”

In his article, Bruni points out that even before the election, at least a handful of colleges had noticed the ideological imbalance on their campuses:

In 2013 the University of Colorado, Boulder, welcomed its first “visiting scholar in conservative thought,” a teaching position created to bring someone from the right to the school each year. In 2015 Jonathan Haidt, a justly celebrated social psychologist at New York University, helped to found the Heterodox Academy, an organization that promotes intellectual diversity in higher education.

And a growing number of educators have been wondering aloud if there should be “affirmative action” for conservative professors, given the hugely disproportionate percentage of liberal faculty in the humanities and social sciences. They often conclude that outright preferences are a bad idea but that creating an extra position in, say, military history rather than gender studies would probably up the odds of adding a Republican to the lineup.

This is an idea long past its due date, and it would make a hell of a lot more sense than the ethnic version of affirmative action that these colleges currently engage in. Forget about the Trump election; the protesters shutting down free speech at UC Berkeley and other colleges demonstrate exactly what happens when you try to turn any space into an echo chamber for one point of view. Everyone eventually turns into an extremist when all they hear are the same opinions reflected back to them. Ideological diversity is at least as important as demographic diversity, if not much more so. If higher education in this country wants to avoid becoming a caricature of itself, a conservative hiring spree would be a good way to begin.

    That is the dumbest headline of the day!

  2. chucky001 says

    How about affirmative action for liberals at Liberty University, Bob Jones University or other such schools? On second thought, I guess that’s really not necessary, since our kids can and do get into better schools…

    1. DonRS says

      chucky001, a typical bigoted liberal can name only 2 colleges and universities with a conservative, yet tolerant environment – quite the opposite from the INTOLERANT, BIASED, overwhelmingly liberal vastly larger number of colleges and universities in this country!

      Liberals want, no demand, “their way or the highway”. Thank God there is strong opposition, or our economic and free society would be no longer, just as in Cuba and Venezuela! As President Trump stated so eloquently, “Venezuela did not implement socialism poorly, they implemented it too well!

      But, of course, facts are not part of the liberal thought process!

      1. Retired says

        You nailed that one right .

      2. AKLady says

        I know of no college which demands an applicant to reveal whether they are conservative or liberal … They simply want to know if you can pay and have the required education.

        1. DonRS says

          Not only this post, but your others in this string are so incredibly naive as to be a joke.

          But, then, as I indicated, FACTS escape the cognitive grasp of liberals!

          1. AKLady says

            How many colleges have you attended? Tell us which of these educational institutions demanded to know my politics:

            BS, Charter Oak College, State of Connecticut
            M.D. Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences
            J.D. George Washington University.
            MBA, Cardinal Stritch College, Wisconsin.
            CEU – U.S.D.A. Graduate School.
            CEU – University of South Carolina, School of Medicine
            CEU – University of Wisconsin
            CEU – University of Alaska

          2. DonRS says

            As a perpetual student, we can conclude with certainty, they were well aware of your politics. “Attending” a string of colleges connotates nothing! Your history precedes you in each institution!

          3. AKLady says

            You obviously do not know the first thing about professional licensure. Sad, really sad.

          4. DonRS says

            Licensure and competence are two ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THINGS. But one who has, apparently, spent her life pursuing licensure, has no concept of the difference! I’m assuming you are now a teacher – those that can do, those that can’t teach. In the teaching profession, licensure, not competence, is the name of the game!

          5. Retired says

            If you add all the stories AK has presented over the years she /it would be approaching 80 .

          6. Retired says

            No truth at all you guys. – Your intelligence is becoming suspect each time you respond to the head troll on the internet.

            I blocked AK commie a year ago.

            I wanted to see what you guys has to say about Affirmative action and all you have done is bite on the AK bullshit. – I am ashamed of all of you.

          8. Retired says

            Simple , if you act like a animal you belong in the jungle and that goes for all national backgrounds and not Skin color .

          9. Bob Morton says

            Graduated or just attended? Attended only doesn’t mean crap. It’s great to further your education and expand your knowledge but in the working world, it will look like you’re indecisive. In some cases, graduating from certain “educational institutions” also doesn’t mean crap either. Future employers also look at educational backgrounds and specific institutions. Trying out for size the ones that will either put up with AKLady’s BS or will actually be on the same wave length – scary thought. The first on the list of the above educational institutions, # one, BS… sounds good to me – BS (not the institution, just her). The name ‘George Washington’ on # three might change though, thanks to the libs. CEU (Continued Education Unit) – why not say it’s continued education instead of making it sound like a degree? There’s no shame in continued education unless one is trying to make people think they are smarter than they are. After all of this “education”, what is her career? By the way, having real life skills and experiences, in my opinion, go a lot further. I have learned a lot from the school of hard knocks. I have also had “educated” idiot supervisors and managers that are clueless (I have also had great supervisors and managers that were my mentors – I shouldn’t know more than they do). Their education did not make them any smarter than when they first started in the education system. I have actually witnessed that the more stupid and incompetent you are (but a great kiss-a$$), the higher up in the company you will go (Peter Principle – everybody rises to their own level of incompetence). Kind of sounds like government, huh? Common sense is not taught – you either have it or you don’t. Thank God I’m now retired and don’t have to train another untrainable, incompetent, entitled management team member with a supposed college degree.
            Here’s a food for thought for the day: “We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing”. Another version: “We the unwilling, led by the unqualified, have been doing the unbelievable, for so long, with so little, we now attempt the impossible with nothing”. I think I heard a variation of both way back before the beginning of time (a xerox copy about 40-ish years ago before the internet).
            Last thought for the night:

            This is Bob’s wife.

  3. gotabgood says

    I have several news sources on my homepage… and it was lite up over Manafort, Gates and Papadopoulos….. but you have nothing on here…

    Manafort, Gates Charged With Conspiracy in Mueller Investigation
    George Papadopoulos, who had been a foreign policy adviser to Trump during the campaign, pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI

    I was surely expecting Flynn to be among the first to be indicted….. maybe he is cooperating and he is the wild card up Mueller’s sleeve.. Ya think?

    1. mac12sam12 says

      You do realize that all happened before Trump even thought about running for president.

      And still no Trump/Russia connection but its been proven that there is a connection with Russia and the Clintons.

      Turn off CNN, it has obviously lowered your IQ.

      1. gotabgood says

        Not true… he has been making shading deals, before Trump, during Trump and after Trump…. and now see what happens when he is facing 20 plus years in his new home…. Something that George Papadopoulos has been doing for 3 or more weeks.
        Singing to Mueller..

        1. mac12sam12 says

          Muller already said that Manafort has nothing to do with Trump or his administration and he added there’s no Russian connection with Trump. CNN doesn’t mention that.

          1. gotabgood says

            You’re a liar..

          2. Retired says

            It was on other networks and international news .

          3. gotabgood says

            Your reference…..
            The probe of Podesta and his Democratic-leaning lobbying firm grew out of Mueller’s inquiry into the finances of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to the sources. As special counsel, Mueller has been tasked with investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

            And thank you for the reference..

          4. mac12sam12 says

            Manafort had no business dealings with Trump, he worked for the democrats during that time. Have you noticed they can’t find a Trump/Russian connection? It’s because there isn’t one and it’s time for democrats to admit the old hag lost the election all by her lonesome. Don’t worry, Trump will be gone in 7 years. New record high on the stock market today! 25,500, the 60th time the record has been broken. Trump also got his second GDP over 3%. Hussein O never got 3%!

          5. gotabgood says

            Your websites could have been made by you..
            Here is a little study done… if you can lighten up a little you might get a smile…

            LEFT BRAIN vs RIGHT BRAIN
            Have you ever wondered why so many Conservatives are lacking a sense of humor? I know I have. Take President Obama’s recent appearance on Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifinakis, for example. Most people found it really funny…well, except Conservatives, that is.

            Instead of laughing, the righties are freaking out, over in their alternate universe. They are busy calling the President’s interview some kind of distraction from Benghazi. And Oh, how I wish I was joking right now. But, in this alternate reality they live in, people like Bill O’Reily say things like Lincoln wouldn’t have done such a thing. Really Billy boy?? Well you know what else Lincoln wouldn’t have done? He wouldn’t have surfed porn on his iPhone because it would still be like another 130 years or so until Al Gore could invent the Internet.
            But you see, all of these latest attacks on Obama’s successful use of humor are actually not so much of the usual anti-Obama display that we’ve all grown so accustomed to. No, these particular attacks really show us much more about Conservatives’ sheer inability to think, or in this case, to laugh like we do. True Story.
            Conservatives just don’t quite get humor like we do. Ever wonder why all of the funniest comedians are liberals?
            I guess we can’t blame them entirely for their lacking sense of humors. I mean, when you really think about it, there’s actually nothing at all funny about being a total douchebag. And where’s the humor in denying equal rights to gays, minorities, and immigrants? It must not be too much fun to always be complaining about being born into privilege, or how your historically low marginal taxes help fund programs for the poor. Yeah, that must really suck. Nothing much to laugh about there, I suppose….especially if you’re a Conservative.
            But, while righties may have trouble finding things to smile about, actual comedy seems to be one thing that downright pisses them off. At least the comedy that you and I find funny. So what is this about? Well, it turns out that there is actually a brain chemistry reason. You know…science and shit!
            Seriously, all joking aside. Our brains…Conservatives and Liberals….really are different.
            Several studies have found that Liberals have larger and more active anterior cingulate cortex, or ACC, than our Conservative counterparts. And while they are lacking in the ACC department, they actually have larger amygdala than we do.
            Now What Do These Brain Parts Do??
            First the Libs….
            Basically, the more developed ACC allows the Liberal to be a better problem solver. It helps us to cipher through difficult information and make educated decisions. According to scientists, Liberal brain chemistry allows us to monitor conflict, detect errors, and we are more likely to
            “respond to informational complexity, ambiguity, and novelty. Liberals, according to this model, would be likely to engage in more flexible thinking, working through alternate possibilities before committing to a choice. Even after committing, if alternate contradicting data comes along, they would be more likely to consider it. This is how science works, and why there might be so many correlations between scientific beliefs.”
            Now the Cons…
            The Conservatives on the other hand have a more developed center of emotion with the amygdala. It is said to be the center for fear, so with such an enlarged and heightened amygdala, much of what they do and how they react to most situations comes from basic fear response. Discover magazine also says,
            “Conservatives respond to threatening situations with more aggression than do liberals and are more sensitive to threatening facial expressions.” “So, when faced with an ambiguous situation, conservatives would tend to process the information initially with a strong emotional response. This would make them less likely to lean towards change, and more likely to prefer stability. Stability means more predictability, which means more expected outcomes, and less of a trigger for anxiety.”
            So, basically what this all means is that they are just plain scared. And how can you relax and laugh and find humor in things that are genuinely funny when you are scared shitless all the time?? I mean, come on. We’d probably be a little grumpy too if we were born with Conservative brains, right?
            Well, I hate to rub salt in an already irritable righty wound, but I have a feeling that I know something that will make you and I smile, but likely will only deepen the frowns to our right. Since that Obama-Galifinakis piece, web traffic to healthcare.gov has increased by 40 percent. And you know what else? Despite all of the lovely comparisons with Nazism and slavery, Obamacare is right on track to meet even the most optimistic enrollment estimations made one year ago.
            Have a fabulous day lefties!!

          10. gotabgood says

            It is you that have a thing on gays… I say to each their own…I have a preference to suit me…. and what someone else does is their preference… and I shouldn’t stick my nose in their business… we good?
            Now for your websites…. don’t you have any legit news outlets? Are they all blogs, or use to be plumbers?… you might as well start posting for National Enquirer.

            She has not bin investigated into money laundered into the campaign and foundation from Communist countries as well as ties to the Russia issue started by her and the DNC . That we pay more taxes has gone on since WWII , they just shuffle the tax code around to make it look like something is being done while raising taxes in the middle .

You have made up scandals and have tossed lies around so much… you know the story about the boy who cried wolf ….. well this boy (rightwingers) was not eaten, but grew up still fabricating stories and still yelling wolf.
            Everything from losing her license to practice law to pizzagate has ALL been lies..
            And please…. pretty please…. Hillary is NOT president…. she will not run again… most likely will never hold a public office.. so move on… get a life…. or if you need to worry… I would worry about this president we have now… You have to rethink your position on Russia being allowed in our business….

            You don’t follow along very well in your own conversation do you??

            I said “No Mueller said it….. or I should say investigating it.”
            Leave it to a rightie to bring up shooting some one… from the back no-less, especially right after the killing spree that went on in Texas… you are a callous sub-human.

  4. ZACAL says

    You liberals are frightening, the items Paul Manafort was charged with happened years before Trump had a campaign. Mueller is trying to use mafia style tactics in hopes Manafort will tell him what he wants to hear, true or not. Coursering people to go against their will won’t work. The real Russian connection is with the democrats. Those indictments are being put together as you read this. And did you know a Grand Jury only hears evidence presented by the prosecutor. The defense isn’t allowed, that is until trial. The expression “the Grand Jury could indict a hamburger” is a true joke. Grand Juries are a scam only used by the prosecutor.

    1. AKLady says

      Before a defense can be instituted, some one mush be charged with a crime.
      A Grand Jury simply decides whether or not there is sufficient evidence that a crime has taken place.

      1. ZACAL says

        A Grand Jury dose not deside a case. They only hear evidence presented by a prosecutor. In the Enron case the Supreme Court overturned 12 out of 14 cases tried by these same lawyers. Bottom line Grand Jury’s are a joke. Check it out.

        The old saying is, any decent prosecutor can have a ham sandwich indicted. That’s what we have here, with, once again, after 16 months, nothing to implicate Trump and lots of evidence that Comey and the FBI ignored regarding the clear violations of both regulations and laws by Hillary.

            If Trump ever goes to prison I’ll let you eat my underpants. Hillary has a good chance of going though. She was told by congress to turn in 30,000 e-mails and after that Hillary and her criminal enterprise proceeded to destroy 13 devices with hammers. As SoS she was bribed by the Russians to the tune of $145 million dollars for US uranium. Hey Hillary! What’s in your wallet?

          7. AKLady says

            I’m impressed, just not in the way you desire.

            Frank Gusta, the Clinton Foundation donor, sold UrAsia to Uranium One in 2007. The companies produce less than 11% of the U.S. production capacity. Rosatom did not buy Uranium One until 2009. Neither Uranium One nor Rosatom have a license to export U.S. uranium.

            The sale was approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, or CFIUS So did the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Utah’s nuclear regulator.

            The membership of CFIUS includes the State Department the attorney general and the secretaries of the Treasury, Defense, Commerce, Energy and Homeland Security, as well as the heads of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and the Office of Science and Technology Policy.

            To say this uranium is now Russia’s, to do with what it pleases is a pure lie,.
            To say that Hillary approved the deal is also a pure lie. She could not have done so, she dis not have that authority.

            Please stop embarrassing America with lies. They make you look dishonest and foolish.

          8. mac12sam12 says

            I was illegal for Hillary to even have a foundation while holding office, it obviously caused her and Bubba to be bribed. Trump has already fired a shot across the bow.

            1. The Bill Clinton Foundation is governed by a board of directors, it operates under federal and state laws governing charities. Oh, and there is no law that says ut us illegal fir anyone in government to have a charitable foundation named after them

            2. There are/were no bribes, Neither Clinton received pay from the Foundation.

            3. Bill Clinton is an excellent speaker. His fees are not higher than anyone else od his stature and demand.

            4. Giustra sold his entre interest in the uranium in 2007 to UrAsia Energy. RostadSince uranium is considered a strategic asset with national security implications, the acquisition of Uranium One by Rosatom was reviewed by a committee of nine government agenciesom did not obtain a 51% interest until 2013.

          4. TexasCoyote1 says

            I graduated from high school and college many years ago. Our classes, particularly in high school English, were open discussions of various ideologies. The teachers acted as moderators more than wardens. Consequently, my classmates and I did learn how to think for ourselves because we learned how to identify what we believed in versus what others believed in.

            Today’s students who are subjected to CommonCore are just being taught a very dry unimaginative version of education. Because the goal is for every teacher to be on the same line of the syllabus at the same moment nationwide, very little, if any time, is devoted to class discussions of controversial themes. This robs the student of any ability to explore his beliefs because he doesn’t experience class discussions that force him to defend those positions.

            If you go to other sites such as the hill.com, you can see this lack of ability to express true opinions and reasons for those opinions. The liberal posters are only able to spew insults and profanity when they don’t agree with you. They are completely unable to express the reasons for their disagreeing with you.

          5. Cheryl Heberle says

            I agree with you…..other excellent classes/subjects were history….geography…..civics

          6. TexasCoyote1 says

            Loved them all–maybe not geography. Poor teacher; very dry subject matter. Didn’t care how many tons of bananas were exported from each South American country. :=)

          7. SD of AZ says

            TexasCoyote1, great post. And so very true unfortunately. And these days a teacher who opens up discussion or visitors who do so are vilified. All one has to do is read some of the propagandist articles to verify this is so. I loved the parents in AZ who condemned the congressman who told the school kids to be aware of danger in schools. He was discussing the terrorist an admittedly controversial discussion during Bozo’s reign of terror! The parents did not want their child touched by the scare. But I remember the exercises of get under your desk if an A bomb went off and the communist scare Cuba represented to make such a threat in the US reality. It is life and children too need to be prepared for the realities of this existence. PC snowflakes are much older “KIDS” and are encouraged with stuffed animals, quiet rooms, and avoidance of all things they do not wish to hear, see, read. Hum?

          8. TexasCoyote1 says

            I went to elementary school in the shadow of one of the largest B-52 bases in the world in the 50’s. Not only did we practice duck and cover, there were drills in which designated parents came to schools and evacuated us to a town about 35 miles away. I’m sure that would have been really effective in reducing radiation poisoning. :=)

          9. SD of AZ says

            But the point is we were not sheltered from the truth of the danger and taught all was fine or slanted to the socialist ideals. We knew what reality was though as you pointed out the drills were likely futile unless there was a shelter to prevent what you discuss.

          10. Tim says

            I really love the PSA on the radio “violence in schools is a reality today”. Really ? In which universe ? Not where my kid goes to school. I’ll teach him how to keep the thug “at bay” in society. Not expose him to a snake pit. IF you put your child on a bus the day after a bus crash somewhere else, YOU are an unfit parent

          11. SD of AZ says

            Big difference as you noted is where the child goes to school. CA nearly anywhere thanks to the libs is likely NOT going to be a safe zone. But as noted teaching your child how to manage is the point. My son had karate as soon as I realized he was big for his age and a target for bullies. The bullies learned real quick not to push him around and at the same time, he has the balance not to bully himself. He learned a lot from the ladies in the class when he was learning about how to stop an attack and they did attack him. At least three black kids at once learned he was more than they wanted to tackle and they liked him after that. He is big but mostly gentle and still as an adult a pretty calm person. Not like me more like his pop.

You are delusional if you believe that liberal professors are teaching students to think.they do not want them to think, they want them to accept the professor’s one-sided ideology. That is not thinking, that is brainwashing. You were condescending when you smugly told commenters not to confuse teaching people how to think with what conclusions are being drawn. You are very naïve if you think that students are not being told what conclusions to draw. When you make a mindless and naïve comment, you will be a target, but a real intellectual is not bothered by being a target. Clearly that does not include you.

            Yup, spent that year making sure that everyone was left with good thoughts and feelings about their deceased uncles and grandparents and me as the survivor of that particular lineage for all my nieces and nephews, now in the grand category since both brothers have had grandkids they never met. And I am thus far the oldest survivor of that particular part of my family and pushing that out as far as possible. But like you, I consider every day to be a great day and have found that to my delight that attitude makes it so.

          41. Jeanne Stotler says

            Maybe your father was in Nam, Agent Orange, killed my Marine friend

          42. SD of AZ says

            It was similar but during and after WWII. I think the government has made test subjects of military personnel for over half a century. Nam was no exception but what my dad was exposed to in 29 Palms CA and during the late 1940s and early 1950s was not a war but a testing ground for all sorts of now deadly things, like atomic fallout, pesticides and other chemicals now known to be cancer causing agents, etc.. And the surrounding populations were impacted as well. Ever hear of the Down Winders? Look it up on the internet.

            The things done have had ramifications for many groups of the population and some have caught the government good enough to get some payback but likely not enough to make up for the harm done. My family fits in that category somewhere. What I have learned is never ever trust the government or a politician. They all lie for the right incentive. I hope you are never directly impacted by these problems. It is not something the government wants known and like some politicians the less they have to hear about while you are alive the happier they are and when the whole mess dies off they forget the lesson that should have been learned. Remember to remember their injustices, I do.

          43. Jeanne Stotler says

            My father died in 1934, I was an infant, my Grandfather became my legal guardian Until he died in 1942 from something he picked up in Cuba during Spanish mer. war. We that grew up during WWII used DDT in gardens, As an Army brat (Father and Grandfather) I know our Gov’t. is not perfect, but it is or was better than others and I hope soon is again. My nephew is a Marine and served in Korea and Nam as did a lot of my friends and classmates, Sorry for your loss, I still salute the flag and believe in USA and our President.

          44. SD of AZ says

            Standing for our country but also standing for justice is where my post leaves off. Military persons and their families should not be subjected to what they have been. Time for the experiments to cease and the controls for this BS to be put in place. My loss is far greater than you know. And I am still a patriot but we must all be aware of the extent the line can be crossed generally by intel groups, administration groups, political appointees, etc.. It is reminiscent of the unmasking in the wire tap fiasco now. Did you look up the downwinders and what the doctors in the area of the fallout were told to tell women dying of atomic fallout to do? Those transgressions deserve punishment by those who made those decisions. And yet too many do not realize that these things happen and the fallout even today. And DDT was used in the places we lived too but like asbestos was later discovered as harmful. But what I am pointing out is some things are definitely known in advance yet sanctioned anyway.

        Unfortunately, since the unions took over education, all our kids are exposed to liberal ideology because unions now are truly communist. Look at their hand symbols, at their canned speeches, signs – all communist. We were promised they would take over without one shot being fired…our kids have been proselytized, know nothing about historical social studies, factual history – just left-wing hate of our beloved America because it is a “bad” country – heads and minds totally replete with lies of the left destroy our flags, destroy our statues, destroy our National Anthem, destroy our Constitution – take a knee, disrespect everyone and anyone with a rotating chorus of excuses, none of which hold water as well as a sieve.

        1. Elizabeth Lewis says

          Yes students on campuses are exposed to a more liberal slant but that is simply because reality has a liberal slant. You can bring in more conservative professors but in the end you send your children to college to learn and they will be able to discern the truth which will be more in keeping with a liberal philospohy

            the gov’t has already started running up a tab on these “slaves of the state”. Started issuing social (in)security cards at birth 35 years ago. Most Amerikans have no idea what freedom is. Liberty is what the government “allows”. Slavery by any other name. Do you really want to restore the republic that Lincoln destroyed ? I surely do !

            The goal of the powers-that-be has been to turn American students into pathetic, worthless crybabies who can’t compete with the foreign workers being flooded into this country! They have succeeded far beyond their own expectations! Unless American students throw off the Leftist shackles and start demanding they be properly educated, they won’t stand a change in hell of being employed! Liberal professors tried to bamboozle me with their Leftist BS back in the 1970’s, and I stood up to them and told them to stick to the subject I was paying for, and by God, they did it, and didn’t reduce my grades because I was too good a student, and far too fierce to allow it to happen! I was also a decade older than the vast majority of my classmates, and had worked in private industry, where a worker either learned to swim hard and fast or they’d get gobbled up by sharks! Now it’s generational white Americans and our Judeon-Christian values being continually attacked by foreign-born scum, and it’s time we fight back fiercely!

            B.S. really irks me and those types could witness the evil in their party right before them and would still swear it only appeared that way due to bad lighting. One of my college courses was ‘Interracial Communications’ and we had to keep a journal pertaining to it the entire semester. I was so disgusted with the whining I was determined to find only positive examples. It was so much easier than you’d think. My professor was liberal and even he couldn’t argue with I’d found. I’ve often wondered if he choked the day he had to give me a 4.0 grade. LOL

            Me too. I got 11Chronicles 7:14, the day TRUMP came down that escalator and declared. “The Holy Spirit said..This is my verse for TRUMP” Months later Mike Pence was given the same verse. TRUMP is ALWAYS guided by the Lord and getting closer and closer each day it seems. He is the new Cyrus for the new Babylon. Cyrus came in totally secular and left a leader that saved that area and totally of GOD. Trump gets many pastors to lay hands on him in prayer.
            GOD bless our president as he fights satan daily in the form of the liberals–communists & socialist in D.C. and all over. he says he feels our prayers.

            I don’t know how. Even in the 60’s they were brain washing students. You must have gone to Hillsdale, or regent U. as those are about the only ones that would teach TRUTH. I remember learning how great FDR was. WEll, FDR lined those ships up to get us into war, knowing that men would die that day. He wanted to make money out of war, because he and his buddies were the ones that did legislation to cause the depression. My Daddy told me that and then it was confirmed at —Pearl Harbor. The person that told us said, when I told her my Daddy told me that said,” Your Daddy was a smart man.”. I was with my daughter and we were celebrating her graduation. She wasn’t brain washed as she knew better.

          1. RC says

            Obie Miller, I agree with much of what you wrote. What PariotGal wrote was right in every sense. Teachers are supposed to teach and not brainwash, and indoctrinate. As I recall, that self admitted murderer, Bill Ayres, said his bunch would infiltrate the education systems and do exactly what’s being done. And the Communists and Muslims both say they’ll attack from within. We have a BIG problem on our hands. Hopefully it’s not too late to make repairs.

    Affirmative Action is required for the hiring of a more balanced, inclusive, diverse administrative and academic staff.

      One would think since it’s been 50 years since the Civil Rights legislation of the 60’s that those who were going to take advantage of the preferential treatment awarded minorities would already have done so, and those were not going to take advantage of this system were never going to do so.

        I have learned the hard way that when individuals make indefensible statements such as that they do so merely to provoke. A response to such nonsense, even to poke back, is wasted on such people. I prefer to look for people who are willing to have a reasonable discussion about issues that is devoid of insult; that is how we learn as well as how we change minds.

          I am with you. Isn’t that what anybody with the intelligence to tie their shoes are here for?

          If we would all start blocking the snot balls here that are here only to gum up the works we would have a lot of 2 sided discussions here. I have had actual debate with a few leftists here but the times are few and far between because some troll will break in and start the downward spiral.

          To be honest with you and everybody else I have been seriously considering sending this site to the spam folder. When 75% of the entire thread is people responding to AKlady and destroying any chance for intelligent back and forth maybe it’s time for me to go.

    When a colleague and I were invited to guest lecture at a major university (our alma mater) in a series and then repeat that the next year, we were introduced first hand to the huge majority of leftist, even self-avowed socialists and communists, who were entrenched in the faculty, from assistant professors recently hired, associate professors with 10 – 20 years of tenure, and full professors with renowned reputations which were all anti-conservative. When we brought up the fact of personal responsibility, it was laughed at by the 90 plus percent of the faculty. When 3 full professors were forced into retirement at 70 yrs old who had taught in the Department of History and in Biological Sciences after 40 plus years of tenure, the three professors brought in to replace these three conservatives were 1960s radicals who had taught at leftist California schools previously. Academia has long been the haven for leftist radicals.

  15. John McClain says

    Has anyone ever considered the plain, old fashioned way of setting things straight, like truth, fundamental principles upon which we, for a few short years, truly were “exceptional”?
    The Constitution is as plain written as any work of law ever produced, yet note, except for the actual “Founders”, two terms of President Washington, establishing the form and manner of “an American Chief Executive”, John Adams, who established how we would deal with hostile foreign powers, as we took our first hit as “Sovereign Nation”, and had Citizens kidnapped by pirates.
    Thomas Jefferson, who spent a couple years in Persia and the region, collecting a couple dozen different Korans, and spent most of his time as Secretary of State, preparing for ending that standoff, and establishing a new paradigm for “freedom of navigation”, with provisions relative to eliminating profit in piracy.
    “To the shores of Tripoli” took place during Jefferson’s tour as president, with Madison, Secretary of State, and the principle of “defendable national waters” was established, with diplomacy making “transitory taxing” on trade through “national waters” and surrounding “seas of responsibility” allowed trade way-points and such capable of profiting off trade, protected in their own waters, ending the power of piracy.
    All of this was accomplished by merely following the clearest, simplest defining document for “the rule of law over government”, and realizing “people compete”, regardless of what venue one is speaking of.
    When natural law, fundamental truths, irrefutable, and an abject demand for “the facts proving” one’s position are always demanded, we have “The Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”. We have our current “psych ward” mentality in this Nation primarily because we, Americans, allowed government to assume control over our “education”, as if whatever current “political climate” wouldn’t automatically become “education, dejure” rather than keeping an “actual education system”, kept relevant by the constant, hard-hitting competition truth, in and of its self, always causes.
    The government our federal Constitution allows, is small, well defined, and left most of “law” in the hands of Sovereign States, to compete against each other, for residents and business, and for “the People” at large, most law was at county, city and local authority, because that is where “people and government interact, most closely”.
    The effort to “Make” everyone equal has turned into a force to “Make everyone the same”, another issue entirely, but it demands a fascist form of government, and when “Sovereign States” sought to avoid this rising form, under the Presidency of James Monroe, “crony corporatism”, allowed it’s continued rise, and ended in the secession of southern States, rightfully, lawfully, and opened “the war of Northern Aggression”, the illegal invasion of the “Sovereign States” seeking relief, by those causing the issue.
    The single issue which makes returning to a “constitutional government” at the federal level, and for all the States, is the national debt, which was allowed to come to pass to prevent “a sound re-assessment of our principles” after that war, and in the face of the wars of choice, which immediately followed, as we attempted to “colonize” South America, and ended up merely using them for corporate profit.
    Fortunately, we’ve raped the whole world by inflation, not only America, so every nation which can, is joining forces economically, and returning to real economics, gold backed currency, and having enormous debt of ours in their hands, needing to do it incrementally, carefully, so as not to destroy any chance of recouping our debt.
    We, The United States, Americans, could also recoup, and at least stop the “hemorrhaging” if we simply “fixed the value of our dollar, right now” to some form of capital. In 1982, while on my way to Beirut, I found out congress had replaced our penny with faux pennies, of zinc rather than copper, with the CBO announcing it done because it cost 1.18 per hundred for copper. As a “metalurgist” I knew two years later, at constant inflation, zinc pennies would be exactly in the same place, given their value ratios. I’ve advocated congress re-establish the dollar as “one hundred copper pennies of standard weight and purity”, as a means to fix the dollar where it was at, in the moment, yet force an end to inflation, and a beginning to “real money” again.
    Today, we’d have to do it on the zinc penny, all our other coin is far to high above face value in “metal value” to do so without enormous deflation occurring. First Principles establish what we will accept as a society and a people, and lying about our money is the first, most basic lie, because money is no more than “portable man-hours”, real money must have real value people find equal to the value of their labor, and without this most fundamental principle fully enforced, every other kind of lie becomes inevitable.
    If we choose to return to being “a Nation, founded on truth, perennial principles, and personal responsibility”, we will simply laugh out the far left, as “utopia” is as old as Man, and has never been more than a story since man left the Garden. Take that story as fact, and God, too, or take it allegorically, knowing “natural law” pre-existed Man, or this universe could not exist, but either way, we eat by the sweat of our brow, and while “sweat’s cheap, blood, not so much”, it has definitive value, and any people or system which won’t acknowledge this fundamental principle is doomed to failure and falling in war.

  17. Mathew Molk says

    Students, no – No affirmative action of any type with regard to anything among students, especially minorities, but now staff,,,,,all new hires and promotions must be in accordance to the to another colage,,,,the electroal collage. Any staff from the part time janitor to the president of the universities must reflect the percentage balance in the EC and must have registered to vote as whoever the majority had been in the current election and in the previous election, no matter who the “winning” party is.

    In other words, If the electoral collage is 30% Republican, 50% Democrat, and 20% other, only people the registered to vote (weather they voted or not) in the pas 2 elections in the same party and out of every 10 new hires in a job description 5-must be democrats, 3-republicians, and 2 can be “other”

    Of coerce in the LAST election 52% of all new professes would have to be republican and since the the majority is Republican all new CEOs of collages would have to be Conservatives! Let’s push this on the k tp 12 commies too. – Naturally all new hires must be in acordance to the percentages and when this getting a master’s degree gets them a pay raise,,,well only 48% of the democrats would qualify. A hell of a lot of NWO Marxists would never be able to get jobs as teachers, huh?

    Against it? Sound crazy? Will you do everything in your power to stop it? Then where were you when black females who didn’t score over 70% on their civil service exams were appointed to the Cleveland Police Dpt. over white males (who incidentally, were also Vietnam combat veterans) that scored 97% on the same test?

    A lot of people that would have made outstanding policeman never got the chance. Affirmative action wherever it was applied was the very worst thing that ever happened to this country.

  18. Terry says

    And you really think the liberal socialist Democrats are going to just let this happen after all the years it took them to indoctrinate half this country ? If it is what is needed ” and it is ” Democrats will have this country burning in every major city in America . Sorros Antifa Blm illegals and all there offspring groups need to be done away with . Take back our country remove any endorsement of socialism and teach civics and real American history ! Dump common core too .

    1. TexasCoyote1 says

      You are correct in your assessment of what has happened to education in our country. However, if we are to protect freedom of speech we really can’t shut up the liberals because then we are doing to them what they are trying to do to us conservatives.

      If Antifa and BLM and other Soros constructs damage property and cause harm to other individuals, they should be punished and punished to the full extent of the law. Soros is such a maniac, he won’t care how badly his useful idiots are punished, but just maybe it will cause useful idiots waiting in the wings to think twice about the consequences of hurting people and their property.

  19. johnz says

    I use to think that all instructors in education knew that the youth believed unicorns and saw themselves as saving the world for themselves and using the little working people to provide for them. This all changes for them when they go the work to pay for there sometimes worthless degree’s because some of them are lazy and want the little worker to pay for them

  20. Tiger says

    No all professors need to be screened. If they are not doing their jobs and politically motivated, then they need to be released. Colleges need to go back to being institutions of higher learning. Any Communists who are teaching must be removed. Just get back to what made us a Great Nation and cut out the cancers.

  21. Henry Smith says

    The ideological hate of the left will not allow this thought to go beyond the realm of a thought. Please prove me wrong!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Richard Start says

    If colleges were teaching facts their would be debate about opinion. The only reason for students to fight so fiercely about their opinions is that is what they were taught one was right with no exceptions and our country allows for the right to discuss this., unfortunately with the emergence of groups like Antifa our youth are proving how little they understand this concept.

  23. SD of AZ says

    Hiring more conservatives to balance the imbalance would be a start. Allowing for differing opinions, more diversity and the freedom to discuss the differences enforced by actual armed forces if necessary would be good too. In fact in Berkley that state and those colleges have confirmed that armed guards for these sorts of changes ARE absolutely necessary. The left has gone too far to the left to trust NOT to use their fascist tactics anytime they do not welcome the other views. It is time to recognize that more than half the nation has a differing view and hiring and protecting conservative teachers and their views might just be the only way these foolish universities and school administrators will survive going ahead. We are fed up their BS and it is time to revise and address their elephant in the room. We the people of this nation are not all LIBERALS and most of us do respect and uphold our laws, our constitution and our sovereignty! Not everyone which might surprise the lib dem wit minions supports NWO, open borders, illegal aliens, non vetted terrorist like the NYC variety. And finally get a broader wider vision of the world, the libs have moved to only one centristic point, theirs!

  26. Big Ed says

    I thought that colleges and universities were supposed to teach students how to think-not what to think. I believe this would entail teaching facts and not opinions. The average student is taught that the founding of this country was illegitimate because all of the founders were white men. This yields the result that students have no idea how or why it is the way it is-they only know it is bad. When these same students are questioned they have no idea how the government is set up, they only think they know it is bad for minority people. This is educational malpractice. These ignorant asses think that the first amendment allows them to say what ever they believe, but other people saying other things should be punched in the face. They believe elections should be determined by popular vote, without having any idea why it is established the way it is. They believe judicial rulings which ignore the Constitution are OK if they agree with their own ideas. They think the Constitution allows them to peacefully assemble and demonstrate-which also allows them to hurt people and burn things down. Most of them cannot tell you who is the vice-president or who their Senators are, but they are political experts. The students are ignorant because the instructors are ignorant. I think someone did a survey of our state university and found they had but a single conservative on their faculty-they are proud of their diversity.

  27. ernldo says

    Nope, but we need to quit funding the institutions of hate for America with taxpayers’ money, and the feds should have NEVER taken over student loan repayment. That just allowed them to pick and choose (based on race, usually) whom to help and whom to let rot! Also, NO MORE sport scholarships, another giveaway of the tax dime.
    We’ve given afros, injuns, perverts, women etc, enough equality…its time for fair treatment!

      Correct, In nursing school we were graded on the curve so to even things out.

      1. Beeotchstewie the deplorable says

        What did ever happen to the idea of equality? Seems it has been tossed aside for a black supremacy movement.

  30. Buck Stearns says

    Why not do the much simpler thing & do away with affirmative action altogether? If we had competent strict constructionists manning our Federal benches as they should, this notion would have already been declared unconstitutional. And while they were at it, political correctness would have been judged in violation of the First Amendment. Strict interpretation of the Bill of Rights would be fair to everyone, whereas treating any group as special is as bad as treating them as inferior. This ain’t rocket science, folks! All men are created equal!

    1. Jeanne Stotler says

      Agree, hire on ability and education, plus a work record where needed. All other, skin color, nationality, sex or religion is not needed unless the later in being hired by a church.

      1. Buck Stearns says

        Exactly! We have to come up with a better way to combat favoritism & prejudice of any sort without resorting to the equally unjust practice of using quotas. These are just another form of injustice, & all they accomplish is an artificial & false reflection of the general population. Always seeking the best available talent is bias-free & business-friendly — best for democracy & the free enterprise system that has made us great.

  31. Bernard Morningstar says

    You can’t have “affirmative action” to put white people in our colleges! The American white person, especially the male of the species, is the enemy at which the current college admission system is aimed at. The whole idea is to drive the cost of a college education so high that the average person cannot afford it without financial help of some sort. Most “minorities” are the applicants who are approved for financial aid in the form of loans (which are eventually passed on to the taxpayers) or athletic scholarships to candidates who often are so poorly educated, they are functionally illiterate. This way, the average redneck is forced to remain without a college education while rich liberal “swells” and various minorities attend college.

  32. Betty Sakai says

    There has been a movement by millennials away from community and church toward instant gratification and acceptance of Man-made amorality — instant satisfaction, isolation, and reliance on technology. Educators could do a whole lot by starting in 8th grade teaching students what ethics and morality are by using the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights and U.S. History to instruct. By the time students graduate from the 12th grade, each student should have passed a U.S. Constitution test. By the time they reach trade school or college, the word “conservative” would have a positive meaning. And because most people follow better than leading, if every girl and boy would be required to spend 2 to 4 years in either community service or in the military, a sense of community could be reborn. God save America.

  33. lha says

    In 1972,I was in College and we were going to take a test on Wednesday after Super Tuesday. Hubert Humphrey,perhaps the worst candidate beside Hitlery,Ohomo was running against Richard Nixon,so he was going to give 10 extra points for each one who voted. When I handed in my test,I gave the Professor my test and a piece of paper given when voting,I remarked that my man[Nixon] won. He almost gagged and said that if he’d not given his word,I would not have gotten my 10 points. This is not a new phenomenon,but an invasion of liberal morons.

  34. Herb1949 says

    Considering that the students use intimidationa and violence to shut up conservative speakers, how would the schools protect the conservative teachers?
    How about the threats of violence that forced a college proffesor to hold classes off campus because he refused to take part in a day with no whites on campus? Oh, BTW he is a leftist.

  35. Jeanne Stotler says

    Religion or Politics should NOT enter into college acceptance, Civics classes should cover all phases of THE CONSTITUTION and LAWS of the Country,, the Dec. of Independence and Bill of Rights as written.

  36. Daniel Graves says

    There is no doubt that colleges are responsible for how the student thinks. They are given false information instead of real world events. Colleges should stay out of politics.

  37. Sunshine says

    I was surprised recently with a very left bent professor at one of our local Colleges; He say’s the universe is blue, but the students correct him saying, there is every color including black that dominates the universe – he flunks all of those students. His theory in the practice was an exercise in belief – stating that the relationship between the student and the teacher is similar to that of a child and the parents of that child….one hand went up – “I have no parents, and if that is how our own belief and our independent thought is created – i want no parents”. That student got an “A”. So now we can understand what is going on here – these kids are being indoctrinated instead of being taught. We need to change the battle plans to fight this evil in our schools

  38. Joe Baricev says

    Unfortunately, there is way too much emphasis made on what kind of football team a college has than what kind of education they are getting! European universities emphasize education way more than sports! College should be a place to be educated, not to play games!

  39. gypsyj says

    YES Y E S YES IT IS A NECESSITY AT THIS TIME U MUST HAVE EQUAL VOICES FOR PROs &
    CONs [LIBERALS & CONSERVATIVES] IN OUR INSTITUTES OF LEARNING THE LIBERALS HAVE A MONOPLY IN THE DEPT OF EDUC AT ALL LEVELS & THAT IS ROBBING OUR STUDENTS OF FREEDOM TO CHOOSE & THINK FOR THEMSELVES

  40. rtwoods3 says

    I can remember when I was in school for my masters over thirty years ago. I had a professor from India that had come to the US to get his education. He received a grant from the Ford Foundation and got $1200 a month for school and living expenses (remember 30 years ago). While I had to work two part time jobs to go to school. He got his PhD and never returned to India, he taught here. He would stand up in front of the class I was in and bash the USA. I took it for a couple of classes, then stood up and told him he had no right to bash my country that paid for his education and gave him a job. I told him what I thought of him and walked out never to return. So the crap has been going on for a long long time. The NFL players are doing pretty much the same thing. If we do not stand up and be counted our children will have no freedom. Everything in life will be dictated to them by liberals. All of our Veterans and Soldiers that have fought and died for this country to be free, will have done so in vein. There is a National Boycott the NFL Day on November 12th in conjunction with Veterans Day weekend. We need to make sure this boycott is very very successful. Along with those of us that are already boycotting the NFL if we can get another 10 percent to join, it will bring the NFL to their knees(so to speak). We need to show the liberals and the blacks that they can not have everything their way. The “oppressed” blacks have received Billions of tax payer dollars that NO one talks about. EEO, AA, Entitlements, educational programs, housing programs, health programs, etc., etc. There has not been a slave in this country in over a century and a half. They need to get over it . The blacks make up just over 13 percent of the US population. Three percent of that thirteen commit fifty percent of all the murder, rape and violent crime in this country. No one ever talks about that . Many many more blacks are killed by blacks. No one talks about that either. Please let everyone you know, Facebook, email, work place, Twitter, everything you can do to make the NFL boycott on November 12th a Hugh Hugh success.

  41. My country says

    Get back to teaching history and stop giving degrees in history where you don’t have to actually study history to get one .And Fire teachers who put their opinions and political beliefs on students .And parents stop paying these schools for indoctrinating your son or daughter .And it’s time you told those idiots that your child actually has a gender . Colleges and Universities are nothing more than breeding grounds for every loony professors braindead thoughts and political views .

  42. The duck says

    At least!!!

  43. Gregory Sarmas Sr. says

    While I agree with the premise of the article I would like to point out that what the so called “Higher Learning Institutions “are really concerned with is the fact that there are other types of accredited educations parents and students might consider.Such as trade schools, on-line degrees and other specialized career driven occupations.In another words competition!!They are not bashful in passing on 7 to 9% tuition increases and nothing but marshmallows and snow flakes to show for there so called educations.

    1. rocky says

      What I want to know is how and why these Colleges and Universities are into my tax $$$ ???

  44. Eric Pearson says

    “Everyone eventually turns into an extremist when all they hear are the same opinions reflected back to them.” Sounds like a perfect description of Fox News junkies. Pot, meet kettle.

  45. Richard Hennessy says

    We don’t need affirmative action for any group. We just endured our first affirmative action president and he was a disaster. We need for educators to cease group think and become more open-minded. Everyone must recognize political correctness for the damage it does and that no group has a corner on “correct thinking”. Discourse must become more dependent on logic and less on one’s “feelings”.

  46. Lary Breeding says

    It would be interesting if a case was brought on those grounds. It would also be interesting if a conservative student also brought a case against a college for the same thing. I wonder if the ACLU would take their case on civil rights grounds.

  47. howmanyamericans says

    It’s too late for California where K-12 is 54% Hispanic/Mexican and only 16% of white Californians were accepted to the Univ. of Calif. this fall. Don’t blame Californians. Blame the government for allowing the invasion.

  48. jim jones says

    American’s deserve a well rounded education and those who choose to hide history or lie to make things the way THEY want them should be expelled form teaching, it’s “FAKE TEACHING”

  49. littlesmoke says

    What would you think about shutting down the colleges and educating strictly by Correspondence School. Then all the Commie Perfessers could sit at home and starve in the dark with their queer partner? Think of that, no more “bussing” issues, school bonds, bullying on campus. All the crap that goes with an “out of control education system”.

  50. Burnerjack says

    I have a ‘radical’ idea!: Let’s just get rid of Affirmative Action altogether, along with any other preferential treatment of any demographic. No preference based on skin color, gender, gender preference, gender identity, gender status, age, religion, Creed, culture or economic situation.
    Treat everyone the same. Take politics out of the classroom and replace it with civics classes.
    Instead of charging ‘controversial’ speakers additional money for ‘security’, charge those that choose to disrupt and silence them.
    Just an idea. Just might work.

    1. rocky says

      You better ‘ lock and load ‘ as they are coming after you. Folks cannot spout common sense ideas like yours without some backlash.
      Lock your doors and pull the shades… and good luck.

      1. Burnerjack says

        No worries.
        FREEDOM ISN’T FREE

  51. Richard Start says

    This can only work if Liberal are given sensitivity training. Not how to be more sensitive but how to thicken up their skin and develop a debate style which dose not require screaming and allows for the opposing side to maybe have valid points or (NO) be right (WAY). I recall a discussion with one over why we had 3 branches of government that degenerated into he man screaming so loud he was heard through a cinder block wall! He just hated the conversation.

  52. arshloch says

    Present day ‘college teaching’ is the result of one hundred plus years of the attempt by communist wannabes to corrupt the intelligence level of students and, by stupidity in design, turn the US into another third world country. Once obummer was replaced by ‘hollary the hen’ they would declare victory and commence forcing the citizen to act as a serf to the ‘marvelous moron class’; themselves. It didn’t work so now they act in their normal manner; The Whine of the Fool. Har de Har Har!

  53. Tim says

    YEA ! The communist will stop lying. Gonna start running THEIR lives by the socialist dictates they spew on us. IF the communist believed their own ideas, wouldn’t they teach for free ?

  54. donl says

    I went to college to “Learn to Earn” a comfortable living. ( Engr ) I could not have cared less about Politics, now however the College Professors insert politics into everything, Not Fair!! These kids won’t stand a chance if all they know is politics.

  55. Stephen Porcari says

    Affirmative action is wrong headed . We should do away with it and concentrate on individual and not group ability.

  56. WhiteFalcon says

    I think that the headline of this article should be “Should conservatives exercise affirmative action against colleges and refuse to attend or in any way support liberal leaning colleges and universities?” Parents should send their kids to colleges that support the Constitution and have a conservative outlook. Let all the other schools starve.

    1. rocky says

      Yep… starve them by cutting off the exorbitant amounts of money that the taxpayers contribute. Make them stand on their own monetary feet and get out of the federal trough.

  57. Gen11American says

    If that means forcing every publicly-funded college and university to have 50% Conservative professors, instructors, counselors and staff, you’re damned right that’s needed! Having up to 97% Leftist wackos shoving their leftist propaganda down the throats of US college students since the 1960’s has nearly brought this nation to its knees! In consequence of Leftist BS, only 4% of Millennials have a Christian world view, and from 40% to 50% of college students prefer Socialism over Capitalism! If this nation is to survive as a Constitutional Republic instead of as a Socialist, Communist or Fascist dictatorship, drastic changes need to be made immediately. If Sec. of Ed. Betsy DeVos is too weak to make them, Trump needs to replace her with a tiger, and two more tigers to head up DOJ and FBI! Then we just need to replace Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and maybe we’ll witness some genuine progress!

    Most of the affirmative action programs seem to be directed to inviting sports players into the colleges and universities with a bare requirement to meet scholastic levels.

  59. Ischgabibble says

    Affirmative action uses discrimination to balance prior discrimination for certain individuals. And here I thought the government said discrimination was illegal? This nation is becoming a complete joke.

  60. Murphmeister says

    And no one wants to pay $60 K per year for caricatures. One way to bring the academic submarine to the surface would be for people to refuse to pay for it. Another would require students who take out loans to meet certain standards of conduct and intellectual progress. Lenders, looking out for their best interests, as do mortgage companies, could set standards, restrict majors and courses that will be funded, blackball certain professors’ courses as not enhancing the students’ ability to repay the loan and more. Remove the money and universities will quickly change their tune.

  61. jesusknight says

    Trade schools ought to make a serious comeback. These snowflakes have no idea what to do with themselves once they leave a college education that was only social propaganda that was totally useless for everyday living..

  62. MIKE6080 says

    Im tred of working give me the free stuff, if there isnt enough then take it from the welfare people receiving it now

  63. Aunt Nonnie S says

    The students are not the problem, we need to change the social complexion of the administrators and professors. These silly 60’s children are a perfect example of the old saw, “. . , if you can’t do, teach”.

  64. xeriscapelady says

    Yes, the colleges and universities are liberal think tanks and you must fit in or go. This has dumbed down young people to the point that over half want socialism or Communism and think our freedom is evil. Can you imagine that? Thank GOD that we have Donald Trump. Now we can start on the long road to recovery, and put the evil people like Hillary and Obama that hate America and just stole and stole, where they deserve..prison. In the meantime the schools need a complete cleaning up if you ask me. Kids are not taught our history. Liberals are tasking our history from us in statutes, its history people. GOD bless America with Donald J. Trump. We are so blessed that he is fighting for us daily, and doing EXACTLY what he said he would do.

  65. Dianna Zerbe says

    IT REALLY TERRIFIES ME TO READ SOME OF THE COURSES THAT ARE BEING TAUGHT IN COLLEGES TODAY! NO WONDER THE UNITED STATES IS LAGGING BEHIND OTHER COUNTRIES IN MANY DIRECTIONS. PLEASE HELP US JESUS! AMERICA NEEDS TO TURN BACK TO JESUS RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE SO WE CAN BECOME THE GREAT NATION WE ONCE WERE!
