Most American parents sacrifice so they can afford to send their kids to the best college they can afford. Shouldn’t parents expect that their children will walk away with an education that provides them with the ability to support themselves and that along the way, they’ll make a positive impact on their community.

This cartoon by Antonio F. Branco, illustrates the sad truth about how college graduates really look after spending 4 years or more at one of our liberal indoctrination tanks, commonly referred to as “institutions of higher learning.” Is this why Americans are sacrificing for their kids education?

When education is replaced by liberal indoctrination:

Higher education in America is in crisis, not just because of spiraling tuition costs, but because of the toxic atmosphere on campuses. The disease of political correctness has taken root in our colleges and the causes being championed relate very little to the supposed education being offered on campuses.

The liberal group-think on issues such as climate change or “white privilege” is so pervasive that debate it not allowed. The presentation of a conservative viewpoint is either discouraged or completely forbidden. Conservative speakers such as author Ann Coulter and columnist Ben Shapiro have faced harassment and threats on college campuses.

In the aftermath of the Trump victory, this liberal indoctrination has only increased. There has been an array of incidents on college campuses in recent weeks that are more than troubling.

At Loyola University in New Orleans, students and faculty members held a rally to show support for illegal aliens and demand that the campus serve as a “sanctuary” for the lawbreakers. At Duke University, the Student Senate unanimously passed a resolution in favor of creating an illegal alien “sanctuary” on campus. In effect, this would turn Duke University into a “safe space” for criminals who violated federal immigration law.

Instead of the dangers of Muslim terrorism, too many college students seem more concerned about the evils of white Republicans. After Trump’s victory, Tulane University students participated in a post-election rally that resulted in damage to downtown New Orleans buildings and the Robert E. Lee monument, which was defaced with profanity about the new President and threats such as “Die, Whites Die.”

The Trump victory has also spurred the Tulane Student Government association to pass new legislation demanding that all students and faculty use the appropriate gender pronouns when addressing transgender students. Henceforth, these students will not be referred to as “he” or “she,” but “ze.” One of the sponsors said the legislation was needed because the “recent elections have directly threatened the safety and inclusivity of many people.” How President-Elect Donald Trump is threatening the safety of Tulane students was not explained.
