Even if this professor was directly attacking republicanism or conservatism in general, so what? I myself have a severely biased college professor who passionately promotes a liberal political agenda while scoffing at conservative ideology. I leave every class period with a little anger, but...
Despite the two-step-flow of communication, she should be allowed to express these views as an academic authority figure. Everybody loses when college professors cannot express their political views to students no matter how far-fetched they may be. Can you imagine our outrage if a conservative professor was being stonewalled for expressing his views?

I do not care for his blanket opinions at all, but I do wonder was he asked for his opinion?
I get that college is meant for learning but I think that college students for the most part are able to think for themselves. Seems to me that in the end his rant would have the opposite effect anyways.
I'm sorry, but when your ideology is the dumbing down of the citizens, re-writing history to suit your political bias, working aggressively to hamper people's rights to vote or even control their own bodies, making damn sure that only the rich get richer. Then yes. It's all true.

If the Nutty Professor wants to rant like that, then perhaps he should run as a Democrat for elected office, since there are sure to be many Democratic vacancies after the 2014 mid-term elections.

i just finished watching the video....
Speaking of 1855:
In 1855, the Democratic Party prepared to fight Republicans in order to uphold slavery.
After the Republican Party eliminated slavery and gave blacks the Right to Vote, the Democratic Party funded a terrorist wing called the KKK to intimidate these newly voting blacks into voting Democrat.
Once the Republican party banned the KKK, the Democratic Party instituted Jim Crow Laws.
I could go on, but just wanted the professor to reiterate on the Democratic Party's love of minorities in the past 200 years....
Here's the deal. In 1896 the upstart People's Party fused with the Democratic Party and the Democrats replaced the much more conservative Grover Cleveland as their nominee with the much more progressive William Jennings Bryan. Although he didn't win the elections, his ideas were highly influential within the party and when the Democrats had a congressional majority during the Wilson presidency (1913-1921), they passed legislation based on Bryan's platform.
It was during this time that the Republicans became increasingly more conservative. By the time FDR was elected (1932), the Democrats and the Republicans had entirely switched places with the Democrats becoming the progressive party and the Republicans the conservative one.
Would you agree in light of this that your comments seem a bit off?

There's one of those bw***h's at the local university. She almost breathes fire and chews up conservatives when they wish her a nice day. I never ceased to be amazed at her instantaneous capacity to turn a neutral to kind and pleasant greating or comment into something unrecognizably hideous, evil, prickly and stabby.
She uses every excuse and no excuse to blather on, spew, rant her ignorant fire breathing nonsense virtually every class. Students think she's a joke unless they are already soooo far down the cavernous hole toward being the Morlach's dinner that they no longer have a brain left to think for themselves.
OF COURSE . . . drum roll . . . she "teaches" sociology . . . that is . . . the few minutes of class when she's NOT ranting and spewing liberal idiocies.
