Higher education in America is a pathetic, roiling cesspool of leftist lunacy that works feverishly to mint new socialists/communists/whatever every day right under our noses.

We are now seeing disturbing manifestations of the success of this indoctrination mill, from the fact that socialism has gone fairly -- if not quite completely -- mainstream, to the overwhelming intolerance exhibited towards conservative students and speakers on American college campuses.

A recent study found that conservative students on college campuses tend to self-censor their political opinions out of fear of backlash from their increasingly unhinged leftist peers. It also absolved the professors of any blame, which I find odd, but this research was limited to one campus, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I'm sure if it were expanded to include, say, any school in the University of California system the researchers would find plenty of overtly leftist professors being rather hostile to any conservative opinion.

It used to be that conservative college students feared negative backlash from their more liberal professors in the form of bad grades and leftward-leaning curriculum. Now, students come to college already conditioned to censor their own less-woke worldviews. This indicates that the problem could go much deeper, as secular humanists and social Marxists -- after their own collegiate conditioning -- have taken over the curriculum in high schools, middle schools, and even elementary schools. There's a reason intersectionalism is ascendant as an ideology.

The leftist takeover of higher education has perverted free thinking, free speech, and abandoned any semblance of due process while ruining the lives of young college males to carry out Third Wave Feminist agendas.

That's on the professors. The current environment was created by an academic class that's grown fat, rich and free all the while demonizing the very economic system and country that has allowed them to do so. They spawn people like Elizabeth Warren, a pathological liar who vilifies wealthy people whilst sitting on top of a $12 million net worth.

It is the birthright of all speakers to be allowed to speak his or her mind -- especially in a college class room -- without fear of reprisal. Conservative speakers should be able to speak on college campuses without needing to have extra security because hundreds of bedwetting crybabies have been whipped into a protesting frenzy after years of conditioning from the leftist agenda-spewing teachers who molded their minds.

Should we burn leftist academia to the ground?

The Left has had more than half of a century to burrow its way into academia. They now control it -- from top to bottom. What happens on America's campuses is what the Left allows to happen.
