Nowhere in America has been more effectively infiltrated by the Left than the college campus. Today, students have to suffer through their studies, listening to liberal professors spout their nonsense in every discipline, forcing conservatives to keep their mouths shut out of fear of retribution.
This sad reality is why it’s always a surprise (a pleasant one, though) when a professor dares to speak against the Leftist cancer that has infected our education system at every level.
Professor Mike Adams at UNC-Wilmington took a stand against the rampant political correctness that has infected the college campus. Speaking to a new class, Professor Adams delivered a lengthy speech that explained the essence of free speech.
As reported at Townhall, the professor said:
“Before we get started with the course I need to address an issue that is causing problems here at UNCW and in higher education all across the country. I am talking about the growing minority of students who believe they have a right to be free from being offended. If we don’t reverse this dangerous trend in our society there will soon be a majority of young people who will need to walk around in plastic bubble suits to protect them in the event that they come into contact with a dissenting viewpoint. That mentality is unworthy of an American. It’s hardly worthy of a Frenchman.
Let’s get something straight right now. You have no right to be unoffended. You have a right to be offended with regularity. It is the price you pay for living in a free society. If you don’t understand that you are confused and dangerously so. In part, I blame your high school teachers for failing to teach you basic civics before you got your diploma. Most of you went to the public high schools, which are a disaster. Don’t tell me that offended you. I went to a public high school.”
“Indeed, it takes hard work to become stupid enough to think the Declaration of Independence is unconstitutional. If you agree with the student who made that complaint then you are probably just an anti-religious zealot. Therefore, I am going to ask you to do exactly three things and do them in the exact order that I specify.
First, get out of my class. You can fill out the drop slip over at James Hall. Just tell them you don’t believe in true diversity and you want to be surrounded by people who agree with your twisted interpretation of the Constitution simply because they are the kind of people who will protect you from having your beliefs challenged or your feelings hurt.
Second, withdraw from the university. If you find that you are actually relieved because you will no longer be in a class where your beliefs might be challenged then you aren’t ready for college. Go get a job building houses so you can work with some illegal aliens who will help you gain a better appreciation of what this country has to offer.
Finally, if this doesn’t work then I would simply ask you to get the hell out of the country. The ever-growing thinned-skinned minority you have joined is simply ruining life in this once-great nation. Please move to some place like Cuba where you can enjoy the company of communists and get excellent health care. Just hop on a leaky boat and start paddling your way towards utopia. You will not be missed.”
Those of us that have spent any length of time on campus can attest to just how inundated with liberal groupthink it is. Faculty and professors alike toe the party line and make it all but impossible for non-liberal students to engage in open debate, as they fear that their fellow students will just appeal to authority to “prove” their arguments and call them every typical name in the book to delegitimize and silence them. This is a phenomenon I have witnessed first hand, in the arts and the sciences at universities in very red states. The truth is, we need more professors like Mike Adams to take a stand against the brainwashing that occurs in college. We also need students to be fearless and speak up and create campus groups. Conservatives are a marginalized group at universities, and even with the election of Trump, the Left will be even more intent on shutting down conservative activity. But this should not deter students, as all it reveals is that they are afraid of having their ideas challenged due to their own insecurities and uncertainty about their own. We must strike while the iron is hot, push the Overton Window on campus to the right and restore the university to a place that truly is a marketplace of ideas, not a Bolshevik breeding ground.
