he eye-popping truth is that all public colleges and universities, and a heavy dose of the private ones, are very liberal. The leftist lean has been there for more than a hundred years, but lately it’s gotten so bad that it is downright dangerous for a conservative
to attend one of these institutions. The problem is, if one wants a college education, you either better be able to afford a private Christian college or conservative
leaning institution like Hillsdale, or go without college at all.
The ideological and political imbalance is continuing to widen. A new study
of 8,688 tenure-track professors at 51 of the 66 top-ranked liberal arts colleges in the U.S. published by the National Association of Scholars found that the ratio of faculty members registered as Democrats compared to those registered Republican is now a stunning 10.4 to 1. If two military colleges that are technically described as “liberal arts colleges” are removed from the calculations, the ratio is 12.7 to 1.
The researcher, Mitchell Langbert, Associate Professor of Business at Brooklyn College, found that nearly 40% of the colleges in the study had zero faculty members who were registered Republican. Not a single one. Nearly 80% of the 51 colleges had so few Republican faculty members that they were statistically insignificant.
How many times have you heard the story that a child raised in a conservative Christian home came back from college a left-wing atheist homosexual? I can’t count the times I’ve experienced that story. And it’s getting downright dangerous to be a student at these colleges (much less a citizen in their line of fire after they receive their degree).
Kaitlin Bennett, a Kent State graduate and conservative who is willing to reveal how bad it has truly gotten, first went to George Mason University and had the students signing petitions supporting post-birth abortion (yes, folks, these kids were okay with murdering babies after birth) Then, she went to UCLA to promote a petition that would put conservatives in concentration camps. Guess what? You got it, the students were lining up to sign the petition.
Is there a way to regain control of our schools, or are we destined to travel down a road similar to another civilization who used the Hitler Youth to retrain their children and turn the country against its traditions?
A godly revival must be on the horizon, or else a bloody collapse will take place likely within our lifetimes.
