    Would you recommend "resettlement camps" for those that do not rise to your level of philosophical purity and fervor?
    They already have their own resettlement camp. It's called Liberty University.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    If you think that is a problem, be a conservative professor and try to get tenure in the social sciences at a state school.

    What you describe goes on, in the other direction, way worse, in the schools themselves, rather than extra curricular clubs.

    So tell us which universities have BANNED Republican clubs, because I know of NO university that has done this.

    Reading comprehension is fundamental.

    If you can quote me saying that any have, then do.

    If you can't, then don't solicit my help in your strawman construction.

    Then you'll kindly stop the rhetoric that Universities are as bad as Liberty in the opposite way by trying to create a strawman to defend Liberty University.

    Thank you have a nice day.

    Actually, I won't.

    State University Faculties are notoriously left leaning. It is a fact.

    My post on the thread was to point out the problem that the OP mentions, is much worse in a place that is IMPORTANT, i.e. the faculties of State Schools and not some extra curricular, just for fun, unnecessary after school club, at a private university. If the original poster really thought that the politicization of educational institutions is a problem, well then he is late to the party, and attacking the problem in the wrong place.

    Left leaning yes, but to claim they are the same as Liberty University as far as extremism is simply just rhetoric.

    Well, quote me making that claim, and you just might have a point.

    That may be an issue in liberal states, but not in the rest of the country....
    I know conservative college professors personally....as a student, as a neighbor, as a fellow member of a church....
    They are everywhere, but hard to identify as they usually don't have silly looking facial hair or dress funny like liberal professors...
