I have never ONCE encountered the kind of intolerant leftist stuff that you read about in The Federalist and The Daily Caller.
Not one time.
Of course it exists.
We all saw the Evergreen State videos:
We've all read about the Reed College protests: economist.com/news/united-st…
If you see reports of something 2 or 3 times, you tend to think it's everywhere.
Sometimes it *is* everywhere. But sometimes it's actually rare.
Yet I've never seen the intolerant, aggressive SJW stuff.
I have to ask: How big of a problem is this stuff really? How common is it really?
But this doesn't mean they're activists. My physics profs would sit around cursing the Bush administration. But so what?
The idea that leftist activist faculty are indoctrinating students to become radical lefties is just NOT supported by data.
Not about extremist professors leading the charge.
Student activists are a consistent, repeating phenomenon throughout all of modern history.
It is what they have always done, and what they will always do.
What are college kids rebelling against? The answer, as always, is "Whaddya got?"
No, we did not.
A) left-leaning profs that do not indoctrinate students, and even act as a moderating influence, and
B) students who protest stuff, just like students always have and always will.
Is this cause for national outrage?
Throwing a few conservative profs in front of a bunch of lefty activist kids will do precisely nothing to stop them from protesting stuff.
There were lots more conservative profs in the 60s, and students rioted plenty.
Simple answer: You don't.
You simply put rules in place to prevent protests from becoming violent or overly disruptive, and then you go on with life, and everything's fine.
Just like in the 60s.
Outrage over lefty campus protests is an intentional distraction from the real, important bad things being done (and being attempted) by the Trump Administration.
And the media has an incentive to find those people and shove their excesses in your face.
In this case, the reason is partisan.
