We all know that most of academia in the United States leans far-left towards a very progressive (I believe regressive) agenda, and pretend to be very egalitarian in their viewpoints even if their arguments are as flawed as the worst socialist governments of world history. One would think that they of all people would have studied their history – such is not the case apparently.
Not long ago, I read a rather disturbing and hateful attack on Donald Trump by a wayward Chemistry Professor at our local university. It was an open letter to staff, faculty, and students, also endorsed by the University’s Employees Union local. The letter was posted to a public website asking everyone who signed it to forward it and post it on social media, many did, and 138 people at the University had signed it.
The open letter to the faculty, staff, and public stated: “The undersigned faculty of the University stand together to protect our shared convictions and mission through deliberate action. We believe we must live our shared values: Our teaching will always explicitly reject the rhetoric of exclusion, and will focus instead on dialog that respects difference and seeks understanding.”
With regards to this line in the open letter: “Our teaching will always explicitly reject the rhetoric of exclusion,” surely one can see the frailty of this argument here – as such view-points are excluding any viewpoint that doesn’t agree the letter writer, the undersigned, and probably 80% of the faculty at that university – whether or not they want to go out on a limb to sign and purposely offend the other 40% of our population in our community in California who voted for Donald Trump.
How can one state that this group of educators and staff “will focus instead on dialog that respects difference and seeks understanding,” when they’ve condemned anyone who doesn’t hold their views, voted for Donald Trump, as I did and my entire family have, and most all of my friends, and business associates (employers in our County and parents who have offspring at this Institution)?
If Universities are in a world of their own, and not subject to scrutiny from the public, then surely the public shouldn’t be funding them, nor should the public be expected to bailout the Student Loan Program. Nor should we be funding their research so these professors can charge our Federal Research agencies their full-salary equivalents, we can get more bang for our buck with private companies. Let’s turn off the University Funding if they want to “Fight” the will of the people and deny us our voice, so they can call us names, and shout us down. Enough of this.
