An Idea Who's Time Has Come

College Republicans Compiling List of Liberal Professors at Ohio School

I'll let you read the article, the title pretty much says it all. I do want to highlight one ironic part of it. (these passages are taken from separate parts of the article for fluidity, emphasis mine)

"We had a student who said, in an ancient Greece class, Professor William O'Neal claimed that America did not liberate Europe in World War II. However; it was freed by Charles De Gaulle and the free French, not U.S. Soldiers," Rubin said.

O'Neal, chair and professor of history at UT denied ever making the comment.
O'Neal said although there may be some professors who let their political preferences affect the way they treat their students, it is not something he has witnessed as a common denominator at UT.

"We're all human and there are some people who are totally committed to their own view points with very strong personalities, so I'm sure in our imperfect world this does exist," he said. "But I do not know of anyone in this department who will base grades on hair color, eye color or political aspirations, and I have been the chair of the history department for three years and have been teaching here for 40 years."
UT has an abundance of resources available to students to help them if they experience this sort of bias, O'Neal said.

"If the student feels abused, they should talk to their professor. If that doesn't solve the problem, they should go to the department chair. If there is still a problem, they can even go to the dean or the Vice President [for] Student Affairs. There are so many places to go to avoid this type of thing," he said.

So, there you go. If you have a problem, go to the department chair. Unless, of course, if the department chair is the problem.

Read about this elsewhere, good for those College Republicans, i hope they expose as many of the biased profs as they can. It's quite sad really how western institutions of learning are not nothing more that educational whorehouses of lies and leftist crap.

College Republicans should make a list like this for every college. And the list should be available to applicants too.

If more parents knew what was going on at public colleges and universities, I would bet enrollment would drop by half or more. Enrollment at private institutions would rise significantly. This isn't isolated to a few schools. Almost every Liberal Arts University except those operated by conservative Churches and religious groups are immersed in a liberal culture.

Even some private & religious schools are falling prey to this liberal plague. It is incumbent upon the students and their parents to expose it for the claptrap that is is and not a free and fair exchange of ideas.

MK, couldn't have said it better

AOW, agreed, maybe a scoring system

Miss TC, it may make colleges crack down on this nonsense

Cube, I agree. There are complaints some private high schools are doing this too
