Don’t fear the liberals on your campus ft. Christina Hoff Sommers | #TruthStraightUp

The pursuit of truth has been replaced by the protection of feelings in higher education. Colleges are now carried away with wacky gender politics, safe spaces, and “their truth.”

The good news for conservative students is that they are going to get a real education! No one is going to be concerned about their feelings. They are going to be tested every day in the classroom. That is, after all, what education is supposed to be about.

At the same time, a few noisy social justice warriors will paint conservatives as the “embodiment of evil.” When conservatives challenge these leftists with logic and evidence, they might get reported for “making someone feel unsafe.”

Despite this, even at schools overrun by the new liberal orthodoxy, conservative students will find allies who are likely to become their lifelong friends.

America’s college campuses have been called “islands of repression in a sea of freedom.” It’s time for conservative students to liberate their islands!

Colleges throughout the United States are carried away with wacky gender politics. The higher the tuition, the crazier the politics. At many schools, the pursuit of truth has been replaced by the protection of feelings.

There’s some good news here for conservative and libertarian students: no one is going to be concerned about your feelings. Your views are going to be tested every day, and that’s what education is supposed to be. It’s something many liberal students are missing.

What is not so good is that a few noisy students, and perhaps some professors, will see you as the “embodiment of evil.” If you challenge them with logic and evidence, they might report you for making them feel “unsafe.”

Here’s the bright side: even at schools overrun by the new orthodoxy, you’re going to find wonderful allies, and these allies are likely to become your lifelong friends. American campuses have been called “islands of repression in a sea of freedom,” so have fun liberating your island.
