    I just watched a program on the Documentary Channel called "Indoctrinate U".
    It runs an hour and a half and throughly exposes our college and university faculty for the frauds they are.

    I now understand why Obama's Socialist/Marxist leanings are apparently not a concern for some. And it explains why scum like Ayers, et al are welcomed there.

    Here is the trailer

    <object width="425" height="344"><pram name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/u-zz1HwxIjg&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/u-zz1HwxIjg&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    They do find some brave faculty and students willing to describe what they experience in their classes.

    Many of these schools and their programs are tax supported, and they are all supported by YOUR dollars as you send your kids there to be "Indoctrinated"!

    I was a straight A student at the University of South Florida until I took a Critical Writing class. I had a very left wing female instructor. I wrote a Right To Life support paper which questioned the true motivation behind the political push for abortion rights. Up until then, this teacher had given me "A's and Praise" but on this (a mid-term) I received a C-. The markups on the paper were on issues, and were subjective. I smartened up and wrote all subsequent papers in a manner that pandered to her leftist views, and I pulled out of the class with an A- in the end.

    This was only one example, and it was over 15 years ago. The climate has changed drastically more toward liberalism on campus since then. I spent a few years as a research scientist at Hopkins, and I was one of two conservatives in the whole department. I mean THE WHOLE department, including all professors, research staff, support staff, and grad students.

    Loren, you are right. I haven't talked with anyone about it, because I was afraid that no one would believe me. I was told about it by my dad, and I've been watching this go on for years.

    Devi.

    The experience you described in that one class mirrors what these kids described in almost ALL of their classes, no matter WHAT the subject was.

    One kid was here on a visa from Kuwait and wrote a paper supportive of our (USA) actions in the first Gulf War. His professor pulled him in and told him (above and beyond getting a bad grade) that if he didn't denounce these beliefs he would personally contact the authorities and see to it that his visa was revoked!

    MANY more stories like that. This documentary should be a must see for all taxpayers and parents of kids entering college.

    flincher, we all have determined long ago that you are just a sidewalk pile, not to be stepped in. You really don't have to keep plopping down in front us to prove it over and over.

    Here is the URL for a good read about the book that Loren is advocating. If you don't want to be lead around by the nose, you should read it.

    I don't know about the second book, because I've never heard of it, but your first one is a NOVEL written by someone who never lived during the early 1900s. You are comparing fiction with non-fiction.

    Who wrote the second book?

    flincher gets his panties in a wad when anybody dares say anything against his commie liberal pals. Too bad for Flincy. The fact is Colleges are full of left wing America hating liberal profs. Anybody who says otherwise is in full denial! By the way I don't recommend liberals "get help", because most are so mentally twisted they are BEYOND help anyway!

    "Slide action: And just where and when did you graduate from college? Please post this, so we'll all know you have first-hand knowledge, and aren't just another pole-dancer."

    Flincher100, When did you graduate?

    And maybe you are making the point for us. I personally haven't seen the inside of a college classroom since the early 1980's. That is one of the reasons I was so shocked by what was in the documentary.

    There have probably been left leaning professors in the halls of academia for years but this program showed that in the vast majority of todays colleges this left leaning has transformed to an all out hatred of anything "American" and it went much further than just the classrooms. The administration and supporting offices were in lock step in supporting this agenda.

    As was pointed out in the documentary, those who "live" in this environment develop a warped sense of the realities in the world the rest of us live in. They truly believe that anyone who does not see the world as they do is some sort of idiot or lunatic.

    And where are all of our journalists produced?

    My guess, based on your defense of this same world view, is that you are a recent product of this indoctrination. Again, when did YOU graduate?

    As for the rest, I assume many are like me, and it has been years since we were exposed to this, and when we were it was not even close to what exists today. All we have to draw upon are our more recent dealings with the real world.

    You reference books that you recommend that support your beliefs but I ask you simply, show us any real world economy/government that has adapted socialism and prospered?

    I graduated undergrad in 1997, and grad school in 2001. I assume that most people would think that is fairly recent (relatively), and my experience supports what is on the documentary, so I don't consider myself an A$$.

    Flincher, you went to school almost 40 years before me...you are definitely out of touch...

    So you have no first hand knowledge more recent than 1964, some 44 years ago (like nearly half a century)? Well, certainly you would have a much better idea of what life on campus today really looks like.

    All I have to go by is personal conversations and the hour and a half docuumentary I watched (yes, it was much longer and in depth than the clip on you tube).

    I stand by my assumption that "many are like me, and it has been years since we were exposed to this," From what you tell us here, you too fall into that catagory as well.

    I would still be interested in hearing about any real world economy/government that has adapted socialism and prospered?

    I attended college for one year in 1965. There was a five-year gap, and I started again, in earnest, in 1971, graduating in 1976. In the eleven years between 1965 and 1976, colleges made a move to the left which Michael Jordan would be proud. By the mid-1970's, the leftist/socialist/Marxist crowd was ensconced in teaching positions where it counted, at the instructor level. By the 1980's they had assumed control through their positions as full professors and department heads. Subsequent hires have to toe the party line to get, and keep jobs.

    As a business major, we had to take at least fifty-percent of our classes in the arts and sciences. The classes in the social sciences were taught mostly as sensitivity training labs. Four of us took a course in urban sociology. A major requirement was to work with various agencies on an observational basis, and report those observations. I chose to make mine as part of two weekend ride-alongs with the city and county police departments. The other three friends happened to be police officers who helped get my approval for the ride-alongs. After devoting the two weekends, and detailing more than forty incidents, I carefully detailed my observations and conducted several interviews with beat and command officers. When I published my report, like Recurvy, I got a C-, because the professor thought that making a real urban observation was somehow biased against those "poor people" (her words) who ran afoul of the law. None of the police officers, nor I, managed to get better than a "C" in her course.

    My observations and experiences are not anecdotal. They've been backed up and reinforced by many others who've attended publicly funded colleges, since the mid-1960's.

    Oddly, the best grades I received were in political science, by a dyed-in-the-wool Roosevelt Democrat, who believed in Socratic dialogue. She was a very sharp lady, who never let her beliefs interfere with education.

    Best,
    Dennis
