Attorney warns: Illiberal campuses and assault against Christianity linked

Unlike the iconic Las Vegas advertising slogan, “What happens here, stays here,” history is revealing that the hypersensitivity to political correctness, tolerance, and hurt feelings on college campuses is affecting society as a whole. And the news isn’t good.

Consider the case of Emily Brooker. In 2006, Emily was a social work student at Missouri State University. Her professor instructed the class to write a letter to the Missouri Legislature advocating in favor of same-sex adoption and parenting. But this wasn’t just an in-class exercise. Emily’s professor told students to sign and mail these letters to get class credit. When Emily refused and asked for an alternate assignment—one that didn’t violate her religious conscience—the professor responded by charging Emily with the worst violation of the university’s ethics code.

    Its more that just batshit crazy, its a treasonous fifth column movement.

    I think it’s time to start literally kicking the shit out of these professors. Nothing else will work. Just beat the living crap out of them, like you would any bully.

      I think a strategic campaign of targeted removal would be more effective. Let the insiders know their gig is up – the gig they won’t admit to being engaged in – by targeting the “kingpins” so to speak. Like dominoes. Over a schedule of several years. To make the point. Somebody is watching.

    Americans are coming around to viewing higher education as an overpriced but necessary evil.
