“From where do all these leftist groups come?… Most owe their existence to the continuous hatching of parasitic larvae formulated in government education and academic laboratories. Over ninety percent of college and university instructors and administrators are liberal and devote extraordinary resources toward indoctrinating young people into their leftist orthodoxy. From these corrupt, bureaucratic beginnings, modern Marxists are born.” – Jim Mullen, “The march of today’s alt-left activists” – Politichicks, September 2nd, 2017.

“Universities in Britain are now even holding workshops to ‘deal with right wing attitudes in the classroom’. Instead of being intellectually diverse, universities are trying their utmost to impose homogeneity of thoughts and ideas. So-called ‘right wing newspapers’ are banned from certain universities. Recently, at the City University of London, the student union, devoid of irony, fascistically voted to ban some conservative tabloids in order to ‘oppose fascism’.” – Giulio Meotti, “The thought police strike again” – Gatestone Institute, Sept. 15th, 2017.

“A new pilot project at a high school in Ontario will see Grade 9 students negotiating their end-of-semester grades with their teacher… At the end of the term, they’ll sit down with the teacher and evaluate their course work and will, ideally, come to an agreement on an appropriate final grade.” – Canadian Press, “Ontario Grade 9 students to negotiate end-of-term grades” – Toronto Sun, September 5th, 2017.

“In April, after the US Air Force carried out a successful anti-ISIS action, he (the White University of Edinburgh student Robbie Travers) posted a comment on Facebook: ‘Excellent news that the US administration and Trump ordered an accurate strike on an Isis network of tunnels in Afghanistan. I’m glad we could bring these barbarians a step closer to collecting their 72 virgins’… Travers’s comment offended (Black) first-year history student Esme Allman, who filed a complaint with the university. In it, she charged that Travers had violated the student code of conduct and accused him of ‘blatant Islamaphobia [sic]’ and of putting ‘minority students at risk and in a state of panic and fear’.” – Bruce Bawer, “The latest victim of the campus hate industry” – Gatestone Institute, Sept. 8th, 2017.

“Free speech and the open exchange of ideas should be at the foundation of a student’s educational experience; unfortunately, it is very clear from the student cell phone video that River Ridge High School and the Cherokee County School District do not share this perspective. This situation must be dealt with swiftly and sternly, so that other students are not subjected to this type of discrimination and harassment in the future.” – PolitiChicks, “HS teacher makes students wearing Trump shirts leave, compares to swastika” – September 4th, 2017.
