Communists (aka Progressives), have been working on taking over educational institutes for over 50 years. They succeeded, and this is what we’re reaping.
As former House member Albert Sydney Herlong, Jr. told Congress, one of the goals of Communists in 1963 was:
“Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.”
Gotta be louder & angrier than the commies if you want anything to change.
Once again, America’s colleges will showcase an excess of liberals and radical progressives during their commencement ceremonies to speak to the nation’s top grads one last time before they enter the real world.
Campus Reform took stock of this year’s line up (according to US News’ top 100 schools) and assessed each speaker based on his political views, rating each one as either liberal, conservative, or apolitical. Any speaker who has, at one point or another, openly expressed support for a political party or platform was then placed in a corresponding category.
Matt Damon, for example, who has wired thousands of dollars into the Clinton Campaign, was appropriately classified as a liberal. Yet James Franco, the artsy stoner who has made millions off of films like “Pineapple Express,” was deemed apolitical because he seems to hate the idea of politics in general.
Others, though few, were categorized as conservative, such as Larry Ellison, who donated to Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-Fla.) presidential campaign and hosted a fundraising event for Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
Overall, Campus Reform found that 40 of this year’s commencement speakers espouse liberal philosophies. Only ten, however, champion conservative ideologies, meaning this year’s liberal speakers will outnumber conservatives at a rate of 4 to 1. A majority of America’s top schools, though, have either not announced a speaker or are hosting a speaker whose public political views do not strongly correlate with one political party.
