A conservative Ohio lawmaker is trying to push through a state law basically saying that the “liberal professors can’t discuss their liberal agenda in class.”
The article is here. Quoting from it:
“Marion Sen. Larry A. Mumperís “academic bill of rights for higher education” would prohibit instructors at public or private universities from “persistently” discussing controversial issues in class or from using their classes to push political, ideological, religious or anti-religious views.”
“Mumper, a Republican, said many professors undermine the values of their students because “80 percent or so of them (professors) are Democrats, liberals or socialists or card-carrying Communists” who attempt to indoctrinate students.”
Why are the conservatives in the US so scared? I know they need to be, because fear is the only thing making people vote for their agenda, but I just don’t understand this. They currently are in control of most of the country, yet they’re afraid professors are “indocrinating” students. Obviously this indoctrination hasn’t been working for the last 50 years, or else we’d be living in a liberals paradise.
Why don’t the conservatives who actually think for themselves get upset by this? Isn’t freedom supposed to be a “core value” of the Republicans? Now they’re trying to restrict free speech, even more than they already have with things like the Patriot Act. Where are the people with brains?!?!?! Are they all drones?
