Letter to the Editor: “The True Minority”
Conservative discrimination on campus
by Wayne Lela
Some anti-Trump professors at CU Denver want teachers to use their classrooms to spread anti-Trump propaganda (or as they spin it, they want to help students “contest increased social inequality and exclusionary discourse toward immigrants that is now being amplified by the Trump Administration”). The professors also want teachers to take a more “creative approach to social justice.”
I agree. They should start by demanding justice for the many conservative teachers and students who have been discriminated against by liberal bigots running many schools. The legal group FIRE (Foundation for Individual Rights in Education), which defends conservative teachers and students who have been discriminated against on various college campuses, could provide a lengthy list of such cases. The civil rights of conservatives are under attack on many college campuses.
And it’s no big secret that many professors are liberal. Hopefully students are aware of all the one-sided, liberal propaganda they are manipulatively being exposed to. And hopefully they are aware that they are essentially paying for liberal indoctrination in many cases, and are being cheated out of a decent education. But I fear they are not.
It would be nice to see students pushing for intellectual diversity on their campuses, and maybe even pushing affirmative action to hire a true minority on college campuses: conservative teachers. Until that happens, liberal college professors and administrators will feel free to take advantage of their students and indoctrinate them instead of educate them in order to impose their questionable values on them. That needs to change.
Trump handily beat Clinton in part because a lot of decent moral people are getting fed up with liberal judgmentalism, liberal self-righteousness, liberal name-calling, liberal violence and hate, liberal divisiveness, liberal intolerance, liberal closed-mindedness, liberal bullying, liberal bigotry, and liberal discrimination.
During Obama’s eight years as president, Republicans picked up around 1000 seats on the state level. In other words, there are now about 1000 more Republican state senators and state house representatives than there were before Obama was first elected president. (Thank you Obama!) More and more people are seeing liberals for the colossal hypocrites they really are and are soundly rejecting them. That’s a good thing.
