Ben Shapiro graduated at the age of 20 from UCLA. Now he's written a book detailing the the liberal biases -- which often went unchallenged in class -- of his professors:

news.yahoo.com.../ap/20040610/ap_on_re_us/campus_conservative_book_1&printer=1

His point really isn't just that the academic world is liberal, which everyone knows anyways... his main concern seems to be that this liberalism is unchallenged.

Perhaps a bit too precocious for a 20 year old, but, hey, I wish I had written a book at that age....

quote from the link you posted:"That ended in the spring of 2002, after a dispute over a column that criticized campus Muslim groups for supporting terrorism. When the paper wouldn't run it, Shapiro took his case to the air on a local talk-radio show and was suspended by the newspaper."

In a way I don't condemn him for saying that. If I was a Palestinian I would go around beating up every Jewish person that I saw.


To me his book is something that only appeals to the Jewish community. It's a coping mechanism, a way of spreading hate. He is more the product of the holocaust era. A Jewish-Nazi.


Who would want to waste their time reading that ????

onlyinmydreams you have enough posts here to write a book. But beware: write a book and be criticized or praised for life.

I think the liberal slant on public education is common knowledge and I have had experience with socialist/marxist college professors. You just have to play the game and get the grades, then it's adios professor nutso.

I'd say the majority of the education system is also geared into consumerism and the media. Consumerism is running out of control to the point of the US being the biggest debtor nation in history, and most opinions are formulated from the big networks' broadcasts. People do little thinking beyond an emotional base, it's more like regurgitating verbatim what some bubblehead said at CNN.

You won't hear public education touting about being debt free/financially independent, thinking for yourself, reduction of government and dependence, and being a sheppard and not a sheeple. It's all about mind control and not empowerment.

Meanwhile give little Johnny some Ritalin, if he won't sit still in his unchallenging/boring class.

He must fit in, and not think outside the box.

The conservatives are simply trying to establish control over the universities, so they "cite liberal abuses and biases" which really don't exist. I remember some of these liberal teachers, and really all they do is teach the subject matter and allow open discussion on the various subjects. Collages are probably the last Liberal safe haven where Liberal folk can work unharrassed by political fanatics of all kinds. If you let the conservatives gain control over the universities, conservative views will become the standard view tought and everything will be taught as conservatives-verses-Liberals as though common sense couldn't possibly exist on its own. Conservatives have to control everything and Liberals are merely lazy and confused.

Does a picture of the "Colonel" grace the cover? The pervasive liberalism that defines most of the halls of academia in the U.S. is common knowledge, as well as the rather disconsolate diatribes that results from it. Perhaps a little more "real life experience" for these professors, and less obiter dictum.

The academic world is liberal, we all know this, its liberal because of the very principles of a teacher. To educate and expand the mind, to be thoughtful and forgiving to students. Then you see policies such as Social Security, Affirmative action, pro-choice LGBT marriage and abortions. All of them policies of the GDP.

We've got the academics and the journalists, you have the heavy industry. So stop whining.

Aw boo hoo liberals invading campus!!! So what if that's the case. I mean come on not like the U.S. government and basically all the big companies in this country are run by conservatives anyways. People with the thoughts not too far from their predecessors who were bigots need I mention not. I don't want to hear some conservative crying about the bias on campus when they still run a majority of this country.

Reminds me of some white men who complain about lack of civil rights when they still run this country.
