Fruits of College Indoctrination
Many University Campuses Are Playgrounds for Insanity

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- If you think the left hasn't taken over university life in America, you are probably not paying close enough attention or in denial.

I'm not just talking about the liberalism of the professors and the core curriculum but about all of college life. There are glaring examples of leftist extremism everywhere you turn, and they're so loony that even sane liberal parents should be concerned.

In September, a Michigan State University student awoke from his nap to an apparently unbearable sight, according to The College Fix. His roommate was watching a video of conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. I can guess what some of you must be thinking as you read this: “I sure am glad my kids were never exposed to such provocations, such obnoxious, inconsiderate and uncaring roommates.”

You are probably also thinking, “But if my kid had been the subject of such a triggering event, I hope he would have had the presence of mind to exercise self-help and extricate himself from the hostile environment.”

In this instance, the innocent victim didn't react violently. He calmly booted up his own computer and filed a complaint against his roommate with the administration's bias reporting system. Kind of makes you well up with vicarious pride, no?

“Ben Shapiro is known for his inflammatory speech that criticizes and attacks the African American community,” wrote the student in his complaint. “I thought hate had no place on MSU's campus yet MSU has roomed me with someone who supports hate speach” (misspelling in the original quote).

As a parent you will also be gratified to learn that the university dutifully dispatched an investigator to dig into this urgent matter and to work for a “room change if the claimant would like one.”

A few observations. Ben Shapiro communicates directly and refuses to bow to the gods of political correctness, but his speech is not inflammatory unless you define that as any utterance that leftist students disagree with and therefore unreasonably consider to be incendiary. Nor does Shapiro attack the African American community, and the false allegation that he does is far more inflammatory than anything he says in his podcasts or speeches.

That a major university would even dignify a complaint so frivolous on its face is deeply disturbing. In a sane campus situated in a sane world, a sane administration would have informed the offended student that universities are institutions of higher learning that promote freedom of academic inquiry. It would have told the student that he, not his innocent roommate, is the one who has the problem. He would have to learn that differing political viewpoints are not grounds for psychiatric alarm or switching roommates.

If, on the other hand, the Shapiro-friendly roommate had persistently accosted the offended snowflake in a ceaseless effort to proselytize him, that might be a different story. But in this case we are talking about a roommate minding his own business and watching a video on his own computer. As long as leftists all around us continue to portray mainstream conservative speech as hate speech and inherently racist, sexist, homophobic and all of the rest — and that's exactly what they do — then we'll see such faux controversies continue to proliferate. Our leftist culture is indoctrinating kids from the crib to the academy that conservative ideas are so heinous that merely harboring them in the presence of a liberal is a microaggression that demands redress. If I'm exaggerating, then please explain the aforementioned incident — and hundreds of others like it.

I'm sure you realize that if my word limit for this column were 70,000 words, I could fill it with similar examples. Let me leave you with a few more from The College Fix, lest you think I'm blowing conservative smoke. For more, check out the website.

Wake Forest University is hosting a series of “listening sessions” for faculty and staff of color (no white people allowed) to promote “inclusivity” in response to a student protest over “white supremacy.” Don't bother to look up the definition of “inclusivity.” Leftists have seized control of our dictionaries, too. LOL.

During a guest lecture at Boston University, a University of Washington professor who specializes in “whiteness studies” reportedly railed against colorblindness, saying that white people who see people as individuals rather than as members of their race are “dangerous.” I hope I don't need to remind you that this is wholly out of phase with the teachings of the universally revered Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — not to mention just outright bizarre.

I shouldn't have to issue a disclaimer, but as a matter of self-protection I will: Nothing I'm saying here is to diminish actual displays of racism when they occur. They can and should be addressed. But it should be obvious that the political left has bastardized our language by redefining terms to demonize political opponents and suppress their speech.

Incalculable damage is being done by characterizing differing opinions as “hate” and “racist” when they are nothing of the sort. Leftists are causing immeasurable suspicion, distrust and divisiveness in teaching that conservatives and/or Trump supporters are bigoted. Such slanders are exacerbating the very conditions they purport to address, and people need to speak out against this destructive trend in our culture and on our campuses.

    1. Yuri Bezmenov was right. This can not be said enough. Young minds with no juxtaposed values will be eternally searching. We are allowing a great disservice in the education system. We are paying, through property taxes, for this great disservice of future generations of Americans. So help us God. We have only ourselves to blame and we will be blamed and rightfully so.

    3. Quite a few years back I proudly went to Michigan State. Today it is a sh-thole of a liberal hangout. A couple of years ago the doctor for the athletes got sent to prison for continually raping girls and he did that for years. The whole city of Lansing has changed to a progressive hole. They sure are good at really screwing things up then not knowing what to do with the trash they create. Talking to them is like talking to a woman on a never ending period.

    4. @Eyes …Like Dave my paternal ancestors came from Germany prior to WW1 .
      Maternal ancestors came from Choctaw /Cherokee And survived the Trail of Tears death march . Which as stated as potus andrew jackson wanted control of their land.

    6. Will the next complaint filed be about the music taste of the roommate? Makes about as much sense. The college experience is about more than just education, it is learning how to be responsible for your life in the real world. The universities have become day care for the young adult.

    7. America was made by white, Christian, European men who wanted freedoms and a better country for everyone who lived here. The demon-craps will say and lie to get their communist ideas across. The colleges, besides being corrupt and taking bribes from rich parents who’s children couldn’t get into colleges because they aren’t very bright, push extreme far leftist propaganda. I’ve read colleges are now saying being gay is normal and being straight is an alternative lifestyle! They no longer fly the American flag saying it’s racist and America is no good. Well, hell, if you far leftist don’t like it here, go move to North Korea and stay there! If America is so bad, why are so many people trying to get to America ? On TV, a 110,000 people are crossing the boarder in April, a 150,000 in May. I guess it can’t be all that “bad” here, is it? The ones making America bad are the nutty demon-craps with their “far out, drug induced” political plans! They say “we know whats best for you” and “we will run the country”- yeah, run America right into the ground! Did you know most self made millionaires never went to college? If college professor are so smart, why aren’t they millionaires? Vote for President Trump in 2020, help save America from demon-craps!

      1. “America was made by white, Christian, European men” using the slave labor of both white, indentured servants and black African slaves. Get it right and cut the Euro centric racist crap!

        1. No, YOU “get it right.” America was made by white, Christian, European men using their minds for something other than a garbage dump… unlike modern political Leftists/Liberals.

          Yes, slaves – of all races, including asian – were indeed utilized for necessary labor. While that would certainly not be in any way justified today, back in that time (because of the then-current state of agricultural technology) it was for all practical purposes the only way to accomplish the country’s goals of production and continued growth. You slept through your Moral Philosophy classes, didn’t you? It is absolutely incorrect to judge past civilizations and cultures by today’s standards of knowledge and maturity.

          1. Oops! Your foot in your mouth. No one is judging “past civilizations and cultures by today’s standards”. It is you justifying your racism and white supremacist views, Orville Faubus Jr. We “modern” Americans value what the native Americans had so much, that we buy land and build our vacation homes out where the buffalo roam. Just the facts, M’am.

          2. “… it was for all practical purposes the only way to accomplish the country’s goals of production and continued growth.” Get a clue, dude! Are you that oblivious to the voluminous historical records documenting the cruelty of slavery from the brutal day of capture, through the overseas transport on the death ships, to the commonplace life of torment, abuse and often murder? You should be embarrassed for such head-in-the-sand mentality. Is this what you learned in your “Moral Philosophy” classes? I doubt it. Slavery served the enrichment of their owners. Your correct position on the foolishness of applying today’s moral norms and mindset to the past and other cultures completely misses the mark in your defense of slavery even by the mores of those days.

        2. Actually the first slave in America was a black man that volunteered to be a slave to another black man in lieu of paying a debt monetarily. “Euro centric racist”? Wow, I am in awe of your ability to make everything into racism.
          Hey, I know. I’ll give you a word and you can tell us how it is racist!

      2. “…who wanted freedoms and a better country for everyone who lived here.” And that’s why they drove the Cherokees from their native homeland (now Georgia) onto the Trail of Tears death march (so the gold could be snatched from the land); why the Sioux were driven from the Black Hills (for the gold in that land); why Colonel Chivington and his band of drunken hooligans massacred and butchered Cheyenne women and children (for fun) at Sand Creek; why the Lakota were slaughtered at Wounded Knee (out of ignorance and fear of their Spirit Dance); why every peace treaty ever brokered with any Native American tribe was broken by “white, Christian (lol!), European men” and on and on… . “Oh, but the Indians were warring and cruel to each other, and… and…” So that’s why our ancestors are justified in their campaign of genocide and land taking. Right? Hey, there’s plenty to be proud of in our American heritage, then and now, but don’t be so naive as to whitewash or ignore the dark chapters and deeds of then and now.

        1. “that’s why our ancestors are justified in their campaign of genocide and land taking. Right? ”
          I don’t know about your “horrible” ancestors, but my Grandparents came to Ellis Island from Germany to escape Hitler with very little. They worked their entire lives in Minnesota to pay for a small plot of land. They ALL learned English. They died broke but proud to be Americans, and I am damn proud of them, even if they didn’t have any slaves or relocate any Indians or other minorities, let alone leave us an inheritance. My wife and I each worked 3 jobs so we could send our son to college. He worked 2 jobs while attending. It took him 6 years, but graduated with a BS in Computer Science and NO STUDENT LOAND DEBT. He was the first in our families to go, and we did it without borrowing, scholarships or grants. In my career I was passed over many times for not being the right color. I learned to shut up and move on. I am sick and tired of all the “white privilege” bull. Our Son is doing well because this is America and he refused to QUIT! And, yes, he did have to put up with a lot of crap in college because he was a conservative.

        3. Don’t forget the Spirit Lake Massacre, take a little time to read the history of List of Indian Massacres on Wikipedia. We had been killing eachother for a hundred years or more before Wounded Knee. Native American tribes were using the whites to exterminate other tribes as well.
          Kinda like the FBI just got used too.

    8. At this time, a college “education” only benefits the faculty and administration of the colleges and universities. Universities are failing the students and contribute more to the unemployment roles with graduates than to making the country a better place. Greed is at large even more so in Academia than on Wall Street and in Washington D.C. and is the root of most of our problems in this once-great nation.

    9. “There are glaring examples of leftist extremism everywhere you turn, and they’re so loony that even sane liberal parents should be concerned.”

      I have not met a sane liberal parent in at least two decades.

    10. I’m not the brightest bulb on the tree, so I am asking those that are – How in the heck can you justify agenda over intelligence? Seriously, how does an institution of higher learning, or anyone with a brain, allow this sort of ridiculousness?
      All I read from the left anymore is how Trump, and the right, the conservatives, will destroy you and your way of life through because they are bigoted, racist, liars blah blah blah… Easy to just keep using the same words in nearly every situation. Did you know that infanticide is not real, it is just a Republican-invented word? Unbelievable.
      But, alI read from the right is how all this ridiculousness is happening. Most of the time who and where. Yet, is just continues to progress. How, when does it stop? Besides the complete lack of education in the American education system, I believe the liberal media has crossed the line reporting fabrications and skewed opinions to the degree that they no longer report news, they are presenting (not reporting) a completely biased un-American pro-communist pro-socialist agenda. They should be shut down. My country is disappearing, the teachers and media in this country are leading the way, and I shudder to think where we are headed.

      1. ***How in the heck can you justify agenda over intelligence?***

        Because… socialism. Look at the violent and perverse that have been embraced by academia since the introduction of marxism, and the societal carnage that has resulted. The fact that a person with the resume of bill ayres (hardly the worst example) was welcomed to academia and sheltered for his entire career should be an indicator of the rot that plagues “higher education”.

      2. Shutting them down makes us become who we are trying to defeat. To beat them, we must support the alternatives to them, and not buying the products they advertise, and supporting stations that are at least REAL NEWS. When they spew hate and falsehoods we must call them on it. Answer these posts with logic and not venom. Work to get our representatives elected that are our TRUE representatives. Do the research. Recognize RINOS and call them out. See the bigger picture and don’t elect a Democrat just because the other guy didn’t meet all your expectations. Not voting for a conservative is just as bad as voting for a Democrat. In my youth, I voted for the person. After seeing the current Democratic platform, I cannot, in good conscience, vote for ANY Democrat, NOT EVEN DOG CATCHER!

    11. Wow, Dave, Race based decision making: “…listening sessions” for faculty and staff of color (no white people allowed) to promote “inclusivity..l”; and “… professor who specializes in “whiteness studies” reportedly railed against colorblindness, saying that white people who see people as individuals rather than as members of their race are “dangerous.” and left brained reasoning all balled up together. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. By the way why hide the identities of the speakers?
