85 Percent of Liberal College Students Support ‘Reporting’ Their Professors for ‘Offensive’ Comments – Opinion

Would George Orwell, author of the iconic dystopian novel “1984,” be proud? It’s not true. He’d admonish us with a stern “I warned you.” Yup, “Big Brother” is alive and well in today’s America, and that reality is nowhere more apparent than on college campuses–on Twitter and Facebook, as well, but we’ll get there.

According to the 2022 American College Student Freedom, Progress, and Flourishing Survey, 56 percent of undergrads support “reporting” professors who “say something offensive.” Worse, but totally predictably, 70 percent of independent students also support the idea, while 85 percentMany liberal students are in agreement.

What are the results of the nationwide survey? How many types of wrong or ominous is it? Let’s count them.

College leftists may believe that a professor is speaking for them, but they might not be right. AgainstIt is considered offensive by conservative students who might think that professors are speaking out against on-demand abortion. SupportOffensive is the practice of abortion-on-demand up to birth Additionally, this could lead to a potentially fatal outcome. Most ominous, who — or what draconian board — gets to make the call on what is offensive and what is not?

Given the sorry state of today’s no-longer-hallowed halls of academia, that is not a difficult question to answer.

In addition, the survey found that “78 percent of liberal students, 43 percent of conservative students, and 62 percent of independent students say a student should be reported for speech they deem offensive.”

How “progressive.” What better says “freedom to share ideas and debate issues without fear of retribution” than students turning in their peers for making “offensive” comments?

The survey was authored by two North Dakota State University business professors for the school’s Challey Institute, which lists among its goals, “to maintain an open and collegial environment to promote inclusivity and diversity of perspectives as a cornerstone of education, research, and outreach,” and to “provide transformational experiences for students from diverse backgrounds through high-quality education and opportunities for personal and professional development.”

Yes. Except for NDSU students and professors — let’s call them “the others” —who make comments or observations that are “offensive” to “right-thinkers.” Kind of a reverse safe space on steroids, isn’t it? Cancel culture.

The survey also asked students if “the classes and other academic activities [they]Have taken part in while attending college has been changed [their] view of the U.S.” How interesting — albeit completely predictable. After all, the left must continually measure its progress in the total indoctrination of America’s school kids, if it is to be successful in changing our country as we know it.

Of the 57% of students that expressed their opinions on America, 57% said so. These have been updated, “over 70 percent indicated that college has changed their view of America to be more negative,” said the survey’s authors in a June article for Newsweek. Shocked? You are not alone; Course Their views patriotismThey have all changed.

Let’s get to the bottom of it:

As I suggested at the top, this Big Brother” nonsense is not dissimilar to that of the insidiousness of Big Tech. Twitter, Facebook and Google are just a few of the many companies that have risen to be supreme arbiters over what is i.You can find it here offensive — to whom — and what is It is not. The real questionIs it the one who decides?

Never forget: so-called “progressivism” starts at the top of the leftist food chain. For the oppression of their base of low-information liberals, leftist elitists turn to useful idiots. Think: “Democrat voters.”

From pretend “white supremacy” and “systemic racism,” to “homophobic,” “transphobic,” “Islamophobic,” and whatever other types of “phobic,” the song remains the same.

Figure that out and get back to me, won’t you?
