Nearly all my professors are Democrats. Isn't that a problem?

In a representative Republic, like the United States is, ALL PEOPLE, even minorities are represented, and have rights.


I guess you were sleep when they taught about slavery in your history class. Minorities had to fight for their rights, unlike the majority you had their rights handed to them.



Maybe you missed the part where ancestors such as mine fought the very Revolution which gave us this nation in the first place. Not to mention that they suffered and died throughout a Civil War fought in large part over slavery, and they have fought in every conflict and war this Nation ever had, so I dare not say that they ever had "Their Rights handed to them".

If you wish to be relevantly responsible, and thus actually look at the modern times, just who do you think it is that gives you your current rights? Are you out there pulling marches in 120 Degree Heat, fighting off Jihadi terrorists, and protecting this Nation? Only the ignorant claim suffrage while they in all actuality partake in none.

On another note, what does ANY of this even have to do with a post about "Liberal Education Bias"?

Well, conservatives cannot articulate as well as libs so they're not hired by the school system.

Yeah, most teachers in college seem to be "liberal" Heh. That never stopped them from getting a raise, while their students had to pay more money to learn from them.


If you want conservatism in college, just take business courses.

I had a business professor tell us on the first day of class. I am here to earn money. And I am here to show you how to earn money. If you are uncomfortable with this, then I suggest you go and become a student of sociolgy, or literature. However, those teachers are there to earn money, too.

You just have to take it for what it is.
Only goofy Libbies work at your university.

That doesn't mean you have to be like them. Just play the game, get your degree, go out into the real world and make millions. You can go back to your old campus later and laugh at the stooges.


Remember the school system works to put your mind in a box and limit you. Just learn what you can, take the degree and jet!

It is a very, very good thing

Republicans are really cylons, and more often rednecks.

In college, after the first Gulf War, I had a prof. who ranted daily about the needless cost of sending troops over there. She always brought up a 'fact' that we spent 1 million every day just for our naval ships to be there.

I replied that it would cost the taxpayers over 1 million dollaars a day even if they stayed docked at California or Virginia or where ever they were stationed because that's how much it cost to pay the folks and to maintain the ships.

She called me a "narrow-minded son-of-a-b#tch".


-I kept my mouth shut the rest of the semester, 'cause I needed the grade-

Surprise surprise. But the problem isn't the democrats. Two maks on the same face, it doesn't matter what party they are. Just another control scheme. Have a nice day.

Are you kidding me?

The Dems see everyones side and point of view, without having a side and view for themselves.

You will find this "trend" at just about any university. Professors tend to have more liberal views and are not as "narrow minded".


How are they not narrow minded when they purposely misrepresent right leaning ideas? You seem to have the idea that left wing ideals are inherently better, which more than likely came from the teachers at your school.

So, it makes sense that they tend to lean towards democratic or independent political views. Is it a problem? Only if you want to be taught that "the world is flat" and "the sun revolves around the earth".

Just my 2-cents


A couple of good posts, ruined by calling all conservatives stupid?!

Yes this is a very apparent trend. Oddly, guess where you find the "non-liberals"? Hmmm? Guessers? They are in the Math, Science, and Engineering departments.

Maybe they are too busy studying, building, adding info, and improving lives to be as "open minded" as some folks would like!


Perhaps not. Your statement is based on what evidence that is not your opinion? Please see: Most Scientists Politically Liberal (Reality Must have a Liberal Bias)

Of course, that's a liberal site, so a liberal site will fabricate evidence to support its liberal view of reality...

Yes, I am bias...however, When being taught cutting edge science, math, etc. I want it to come from a non conservative non traditionalist. Leave conservatism and tradition to the family unit.

And yet, somehow, I don't see where Conservative political ideology in the U.S. is in any in danger of becoming extinct. Why do you suppose that is?

Maybe because you should give people (including students) more credit for researching and exploring various political viewpoints, and making a decision for themselves about what they want to endorse -- if any.

It doesn't seem to be unduly influencing you. So what's the problem? Unless you want to consider yourself to be so much smarter than all the other student "sheeple" out there.


[edit on 16-7-2009 by Nohup]


The problem is just what you stated - the other "sheeple" students that never bother to think beyond the indoctrination they've been receiving in school.

Example: all those that voted for "change" without finding out first what the planned "change" was.

hmmm maybe thats a sign or something....

nahhhhhhh

its got nothing to do with the fact that people are more likely to be democrats the more education they get



nahhhhhhh

I think it has more to do with kids that have the money to go to school often were raised in a somewhat narcissistic fashion. They've gotten used to having all their needs and wants just handed to them. So, big government wanting to do the same for them sounds quite reassuring, I'm sure. Way better than having to go out and actually work to succeed.

What does math have to do with ideology? I think you're just playing in to the stereotype left wing professors like to spread about right wingers (or anyone who doesn't agree with them). Do you not realize that you're exactly what we're talking about in the OP? You're demonstrating what liberal professors/teachers/media does to people.

Yes, I do! And You can bet money that it was the conservatives that tried to perpetuate the notion that the earth was flat and the sun revolved around the earth...they even made it a CRIME to suggest otherwise. Those were LIBERAL ideas. I tend to lean towards liberal education, because that is the ideology that revolutionizes every branch of educational knowledge.

Now much time has passed since those days of persecuting liberal ideas such as the flat earth. But what has not changed is liberals are liberals and conservatives are conservatives. AND had it not become SOOOO blatantly obvious that the earth was spherical, then the conservatives would still push the flat earth theory.

I know, I know....that was centuries ago...but the same attitude still applies.

Thanks for the star and flag, I also starred and flagged the post where you gave the video. Great video.


I watched a couple other videos from that same man.

If only more professors were teaching those subjects like he did, or does...

The same thing happened in every country in the world, and it is still happening in some countries like Sudan.

There were many mistakes done, and there have been, and still are people who hate others for their race, but as the people of the United States matured and saw that people of all races are men, and women just like them it was realized that the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights in it was addressing the rights of ALL men and women, nomatter their race, color, or in what culture they were raised in.

On the other hand if you look at the history of true Socialism, and Communism, these economic, and forms of government are to this day dictatorships. I am not talking about nations which have a mix of some form of Socialism, Capitalism, and are representative governments.

These nations are not embracing completely the Socialist, or Communist ideals. But the nations that do embrace these ideals completely have ALWAYS, and to this day become, and remain dictatorships.

Communism, also known as true Socialism, Marxism, and every other form of Communism has murdered more people than all World Worlds and other conflicts combined.

Over 110 million people have been murdered by these Communist/Marxist ideals, and that does not include the soldiers which have died in battles, nor the millions that have been imprisoned in Gulags just for defying any and every form of Communism.

BTW, my intention for posting this thread was not to start an "insult fest", but to point out a real problem that is happening in the U.S.

Even the journalist, who is not a Republican, or a Conservative saw that this is a problem.

When you indoctrinate the people in a nation into one ideology, nomatter what kind of ideology it is, and if that ideology, or ideologies are meant to supplant the laws of the land which give rights to ALL MEN AND WOMEN, you are in fact indoctrinating people into forming a dictatorship.

Just take a look at most of the awnsers from the Democrats, and or Liberals who responded in this thread, and you can see that it is indeed a problem and pointed it out in his articles.

Americans should be taught without bias the truth about the economic and political systems which have brought dictatorships to nations, murdered millions, and imprisoned millions more.

A representative Republic, which gives rights to ALL individuals, and represents them all is the best form of government just like the forefathers of this nation agreed on.

Socialists, Liberals, and or Communists of any denomination should not be trying to transform the REPUBLIC of the United States into another Socialist dictatorship.

Yes, the vast majority of Professors are liberal. At the college I taught at, in our department of 20 Profs, there were only two of us that were conservatives. Both of us came from long careers in industry, while the remaining 18 were all hired directly out of grad school. Those that have never been in the real work world tend to view things from an "idealistic" point of view, rarely actually experiencing what they teach.
Critical mass takes over from there. Faculty selection committees are loaded with liberals, who tend to pick those that hold the same views, and the cycle repeats over and over. In addition, those of us who were conservative have a rather antagonistic atmosphere to work in, and eventually, many just give up.
Furthermore, the curriculum development, of course, reflects the views of the faculty, and is "custom made" for the liberal point of view. Thus, once liberalism has engulfed a faculty department, it is virtually impossible to reverse that tendency.
