    Jason Hill, DePaul professor, slams liberal colleges as ‘gravest internal threat to this country’
    Professor calls universities the ‘gravest internal threat’ to U.S.

    Quote:

    "Jason Hill, who teaches at Chicago’s private DePaul University, blasted universities in a hard-hitting op-ed earlier this month as “propaganda machines” that indoctrinate students to reject Western culture.

    “The core principles and foundations that keep the United States intact, that provide our citizens with their civic personalities and national identities, are being annihilated,” wrote Hill.

    “The gravest internal threat to this country is not illegal aliens; it is leftist professors who are waging a war against America and teaching our young people to hate this country.”"

    And quote:

    "Moreover, “today’s scholars in humanities and social sciences increasingly declare that modern argumentation is a white, Western form of domination and linguistic imperialism that silences racial and ethnic minorities and devalues their ‘lived experiences,’” Hill said.

    “One cannot argue with such people. The only alternative is to shut them down.”

    That means universities as currently constituted have got to go, argued Hill, who has written on civil disobedience and identity politics, social and political philosophy, cosmopolitanism and race theory."
    ______________________________________________________________________________________

    While I do not agree universities must be shut down, some kind of philosophical counterweight must
    exist. One that provides humanities and social science majors--particularly future doctoral candidates headed for professorships--a balanced mix at least of ideological philosophies and political psychology, in particular, while depoliticizing core history courses.

    Doctoral candidate exams also need to be reconsidered for less bias towards the "godless" schools of thought. While not yet as militant radical Left as say,the Sorbonne of the 70's, the anti-Western, anti-American indoctrination culture in many humanities and social science departments has surpassed the point of too far--perhaps the point of no return--for this generation at least. Essentially, the political correctness needs to go. Freedom to interpret and share ideas seems nearly lost to modern enclaves of radical liberalism.

    What do you think?

    Educated people are more difficult to manipulate that's why Universities may be a real threat ... not to US but to US Establishment, War party, Elites, etc., to everything we call Deep State.

    But the fact is that Deep State and its puppets are real internal threat and the professor is just one of those who have been trying to distract people's attention from that and to substitute that fact with something fake. That's exactly how propaganda works.

    Education can also be no different than a mass manufacturing operation, particularly if one ideology or the other becomes the culture.

    Ignore the Russophiles here, and let's concentrate on the OP.

    It is correct, or is it alt right awareness that the alt righties are losing the war to indoctrinate America.

    Wrong. INTELLIGENT people are more difficult to manipulate. It just so happens that most intelligent people go for higher learning as well, but intelligence make you learn, learning doesn't make you intelligent---- some of the dumbest people you'll ever want to meet have advanced degrees. The other myth is that if you don't go to college, you're not educated------ home schooled kids actually test better than public educated ones and there is no reason why in 90% of the cases, you can't buy the right books and study the same stuff of your own as you might in college and learn it just as well or BETTER, not to mention what people simply learn in life.

    Indeed, there is every indication that colleges are little more than just 4-12 years more chance for the Left to get at your brain and massage more indoctrination into people's heads---- while you pays for it, and that just makes you easier to control, not less; just look at the cookie cutter mentality of most of the hardcore Leftist dweebs here.

    Some build empires, but you're correct. Most build them in their minds alone.

    Professors can do as well as teach.

    Well before I went to college I only had the viewpoints from my family and friends. In college it not only was the viewpoints and beliefs from my professors but also from all my classmates from many different cultures and countries. I wouldn't say anyone was pushing me to be more liberal and a democrat, it's just once my eyes were opened and I saw perspectives and beliefs that were different from what my family and friends taught me in school I became more liberal. In college you get to interact with lots of people and in many ways just the interaction with so many people created a wealth of knowledge that I did not have before.

    So I believe your premise is wrong. I don't believe professors are in anyway pushing their students to become leftists, it just seems to happen that way when people are exposed to a wide range of beliefs and viewpoints that are different than what their family and friends taught them growing up.
