If you ever attended college, or grad school, then you know what passes for higher learning these days is just mindless, dopey liberalism. The progressive elites think holding an academic conference where the topic is Dick Cheney: Should He Be Jailed For Life Or Executed As A War Criminal is an example of everyone having a chance to express their opinion. Its a surreal place where the Boy Scouts are vilified, NAMBLA is embraced, and the military is not allowed on campus. Its a place where watching a Mel Gibson movie is hate crime, but Roman Polanski has his own film festival. Its a place where convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal can give graduation commencement speeches from his death row cell. (After shelling out tuition for four years, how would you like to be the proud parent who puts on the suit & tie, gets to your kid's graduation, and you find out you have to sit there & listen to that guy dole out his pearls of wisdom?) It's a place where the only religion is atheism, and the faculty are the high priests. (By "high", I mean stoned. On drugs.)
To see how jacked up our colleges truly are, you have to read the post below from mindingthecampus.com. They obtained a copy of a sociology test that was given at an eastern college. After reading it, I was surprised the professor did not give the "students" extra credit for wearing the Che beret. Check it out:

Recently, a colleague forwarded to me a copy of an exam from an introductory sociology class found lying in a room at a public college in the east. It was graded 100%. The exam deserves to be quoted at length, as parts of it are virtually indistinguishable from the old Soviet agitprop of the Fifties:
Question: How does the United States "steal" the resources of other (third world) [sic] countries?
Answer: We steal through exploitation. Our multinationals are aware that indigenous people in developing nations have been coaxed off their plots and forced into slums. Because it is lucrative, our multinationals offer them extremely low wage labor (sic) that cannot be turned down.
Question: Why is the U.S. on shaky moral ground when it comes to preventing illegal immigration?
Answer: Some say that it is wrong of the United States to prevent illegal immigration because the same people we are denying entry to, (sic) we have exploited for the purpose of keeping the American wheel spinning.
Question: Why is it necessary to examine the theory of cumulative advantage when it comes to affirmative action?
Answer: Because it is unfair to discredit the many members of minority groups that have (sic) been offered more life chances through the program.
Question: What is the interactionist approach to gender?
Answer: The majority of multi-gender encounters are male-dominated. for (sic) example, while involved in conversation, the male is much more likely to interrupt. Most likely because the male believes the female's expressed thoughts are inferior to his own.
Question: Please briefly explain the matrix of domination.
Answer: the (sic) belief that domination has more than one dimension. For example, Males (sic) are dominant over females, whites over blacks, and affluent over impoverished.
This exam was part of the curriculum in a for-credit class at an accredited degree-granting institution. Introductory sociology courses like this one are frequently required, even for non-majors. A student who matriculates in this field of study will have nothing in the way of useful skills, but will be convinced that his country is rotten to the core, and that whites and males are evil.
China encourages its brightest students to study mathematics and engineering. India has become known as a hotbed of tech-savvy computer programmers. Meanwhile, the U.S. spends billions to teach postmodern, left-wing misinformation as objective "fact."
