Oxford Professor: No Place for Conservative ‘Truth Deniers’ at Universities

Professor Leslie Green, the “Professor of Philosophy of Law” at Oxford University, argued in a recent blog post obtained by Campus Reform that “it is hard to be a campus conservative” not because universities are “bastions of liberalism,” but “because they are universities.”

Conservatives simply do not fit in because they are “truth deniers,” he claims.

  • From the article:

    “An Oxford professor argues that conservatives have no business seeking higher education.”

    And yet they bemoan the alleged lack of education.

  • Hard Little Machine

    We are close to a tipping point but not the one leftists imagine. Many universities are poised to make themselves irrelevant. They do not own an eternal monopoly. When they elevate dogma above learning they stop educating. People notice these things and will seek education elsewhere.

    • Liberals do not believe money rules.

      Numerous liberal colleges are noticing a reduction in student enrolment.

      Hard cold economics is giving them a free course in supply and demand.

      Economic free choice will change their outlook.

    “They mean American universities are full of people who believe things like this:

    Species arose through natural selection.”

    But if you suggest that human races arose from natural selection you are literally Hitler and belong in the basket with all the other deplorables. At universities, human races don’t even exist!

      It’s just a tad ironic to think that, since most (all?) progressives do not believe in objective truth but only in subjective, individual truth, this professor probably does not either (though he has no qualms about using the concept as a tool to further his agenda). The people who are in fact likely to believe in objective truth are conservatives, the same people he accuses of being “truth deniers”.

    The likes of Professor Green are the heretic-torturing inquisitors of the 21st century.

    marxist idiot thought processes are nothing new at Oxford.

    “Truth deniers” can only be interpreted to mean (a) that a select group is in possession of the truth and (b) that denying that “truth” is anathema.
    Any group with this stance is called a religion.
    In such an environment, this “Professor of Philosophy of Law” couldn’t even have studied philosophy because there would be none. Philosophy is about understanding things and debating differing opinions, not about banning them.

    Their continued attack on anyone that does not believe in the marixst/globalist failed ideologies reflects the same attacks placed on the Jewish people by Hitler and his fellow criminals back in the early 20th century – they continue to dehumanize us with the ultimate goal of erradicating all of us who see them for the genocidal criminals that they are. I will watch with glee when we eventually win this war and haul their asses through a Nuremberg style trial prior to their neck extensions while they proclaim they were merely ‘following orders’.

    Why is it that whenever I do a bit of research on the background of these academic SJWs I tend to end up in Canadian schools?
