Is there anyone reading this that doesn't believe our college campuses today are fraught with censorship, political correctness, speech codes, political conformity, intolerance, and hostility to any worldview other than 'progressive'?
There's a new documentary film, Indoctrinate U, by award-winning filmmaker Evan Coyne Maloney, which reveals what the 'thought & speech' atmosphere is on campuses today.
As Junkscience.com puts it: "Hard-hitting and humorous, the film tells the story of how, in the name of education, schools from coast to coast ruthlessly compel conformity of thought. Focusing on the experiences of students and faculty who risk harassment, censorship, and even their futures when they dissent, Indoctrinate U makes the campus culture wars--often treated as an abstract battle of ideas--intensely personal and unforgettably human."
"We usually associate such things with the repressive regimes of North Korea, China, Cuba, and the former Soviet Union. But instead, this assault on free thought is taking place all over America--right now--on our nation's campuses."

David Horowitz's Students for Academic Freedom who writes, "At universities like Duke, American students are being taught to despise their own country, and are barraged with paranoid delusions about America as an oppressive empire and a society pervaded by 'institutional racism.'"
Leftist professors teach everything from Marxism to 9/11 conspiracy theories. Herb Denenberg writing for SAF says, "Horowitz documents the nature of the textbooks used at these universities. For example, one widely used textbook, Peace and Conflict Studies, justifies 'communist policies and actions and puts those of America and Western democracies in a negative light.' Horowitz also quotes passages from the text that justify and defend terrorists, including those responsible for the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. He shows that Ward Churchill of the University of Colorado was more of the rule than the exception.

Horowitz's Discover the Networks.org lists the "Most Dangerous Academics in America". Do you know who they are. Do you know any of them on the list? You should. We all should, and in the name of truth, educate those we know and can influence who are in college and those who are college bound at every opportunity we can.
Their lives and our very nation's survival as we know it are at stake.
