American universities are decaying before our eyes.
Free and open debate has been replaced with political correctness.
And college students just gave a chilling answer when asked about the greatest world threat.
Universities have always leaned to the Left, but they’ve now become a monoculture of extreme leftism.
On many campuses, you’re more likely to find an avowed communist than a Republican, and that goes for both students and faculty.
Students have been indoctrinated for years by popular leftists authors such as Howard Zinn to believe that every single thing America has ever done is horrible.
So it’s no surprise that college students at the New England College’s College Convention 2020 in New Hampshire last week believe Donald Trump is a greater threat to world peace than leaders of Iran, China, North Korea, and Russia.
Speakers at the event included a slate of Democrat presidential candidates and attendees were a sampling of Leftist students from across the country.
The College Fix attended the convention and asked students, “Who is the biggest threat to world peace?”
Given the choices of Donald Trump, or Vladimir Putin of Russia, Kim Jong-un of North Korea, Xi Jinping of China or Ali Khamenei of Iran, an overwhelming majority responded that President Trump is the biggest threat.
Most of these students probably don’t even know that Trump wants to pull troops out of the Middle East, and months ago, he called off an airstrike on Iran.
Meanwhile, Iran funds radical militia groups in multiple countries.
North Korea is a nightmarish Stalinist state, and China is quickly reverting to its iron-fisted authoritarian roots.
The conservative group Campus Reform did a similar experiment where they asked students to rank Trump against brutal dictators of the 20th century.
Many of them couldn’t identify Josef Stalin by picture and didn’t even know who he was.
Communist crimes of the past have been papered over, or rewritten, by Marxist historians in tenured positions within the Ivory Towers of academia.
If you don’t think this has real-world implications, one of Bernie Sanders’s staffers was recently captured on camera making apologetics for the Soviet gulags.
Universities are cranking out uninformed socialists, and it needs to stop.
Can the university system be reformed? Or is it already too late?
