What Would the LEFT Do if the Universities Were Dominated by the RIGHT?

Surveys show that professors vote nine to one liberal. And I am willing to bet that many of those who tell the pollster — or their students — they have EVER voted for a non-liberal candidate are just trying to sound “fair.”

There are about a hundred respectable conservative books dedicated to reciting facts, figures and quotes with the theme, “Good gracious, Mommy, colleges are left-wing!”

What if the shoe were on the other foot? What if universities were thinly-disguised CONSERVATIVE seminaries for teaching a rightist faith rather than a leftist faith?

Do you think LIBERALS would be writing books saying, “Oh, goodness gracius, all these sincere liberal professors have a bias!”

No way.

They would be saying that the universities were using tax money to push a rightist agenda and this must stop.


They would be on the campuses and in the streets.

The left plays hard ball. The right plays kisseepoo.
