America’s college campuses have been dominated by Leftist professors for years.
It’s a big reason why students seemingly spend more time protesting conservative speakers or setting up “safe spaces” than learning.
But this new study exposed the extent of Leftist brainwashing and it’s worse than anyone could have imagined.
A recent study published in the journal Springer nature titled “Homogenous: The Political Affiliations of Elite Liberal Arts College Faculty” just proved Academia is overwhelmed with Democrats.
The study showed 39% of top tier liberal arts colleges are stuffed with Democrats at the Ph.D.-holding level and have ZERO Republicans.
Further, of the remaining 61% of colleges, there are “slightly more than zero percent” Republicans.
In all, the study found that nearly 8-in-10 academic departments in the sample have “either zero Republicans or so few as to make no difference.”
The study says:
In this article I offer new evidence about something readers of Academic Questions already know: The political registration of full-time, Ph.D.-holding professors in top-tier liberal arts colleges is overwhelmingly Democratic. Indeed, faculty political affiliations at 39 percent of the colleges in my sample areRepublican free—having zero Republicans. The political registration in most of the remaining 61 percent, with a few important exceptions, is slightly more than zero percent but nevertheless absurdly skewed against Republican affiliation and in favor of Democratic affiliation. Thus, 78.2 percent of the academic departments in my sample have either zero Republicans, or so few as to make no difference.
My sample of 8,688 tenure track, Ph.D.–holding professors from fifty-one of the sixty-six top ranked liberal arts colleges in the U.S. News 2017 report consists of 5,197, or 59.8 percent, who are registered either Republican or Democrat. The mean Democratic-to-Republican ratio (D:R) across the sample is 10.4:1, but because of an anomaly in the definition of what constitutes a liberal arts college in the U.S. News survey, I include two military colleges, West Point and Annapolis. If these are excluded, the D:R ratio is a whopping 12.7:1.
When you take out Military Colleges, for every one Republican professor, there are 13 Democrats.
This gives new meaning to a “liberal” arts education.
Conservative professors live in fear of expressing their views on campus.
If they’re found out as having the “wrong” political opinions, it could cost them their job.
Meanwhile, college administrations turn a blind eye to openly Marxist professors.
Fox News recently reported that more than 100 Dartmouth College faculty members signed a letter defending violent Antifa protesters.
During the confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh, Georgetown University Professor Christine Fair called for his murder.
And faculty like University of Mary Washington President Ana Mari Cauce, are using their positions to lead anti-Trump “resistance” protests.
What do you think of the state of America’s colleges today?
