Colleges only have a few conservatives.
More and more colleges are going from free thinking to outright aggression towards ideas that don't fit the progressive agenda. This has no place in a learning environment.
Conservatives are free thinkers but they are also sensible
a lot of colleges have affirmative action, which is kinda racist.
A college is a perfect place to examine opposing views. I'm not sure what "tribal" ideas a conservative supposedly thinks, but that generalization is a silly and unfair. An institution is supposed to make you think about different opinions and come to your own conclusion while using supporting facts. It is not meant to make you think like everyone else. I would never want to be involved in a school where being a conservative is mutually exclusive with "backwards tribal thinking". Yikes.
Yes, academia is the most reasonable and intelligent segment of society, but a lot of them are starting to go overboard in pushing the more extreme liberal ideas. I think it's mostly the fault of overzealous students who think they know much more than they do
They're being so progressive, they're actually being regressive! safe spaces, hating on others views, honoring a terrorist who was shot by cops! So, it's worse than progressive
Conservatives naturally conform to authority (to the perceived strongman). They aren't freethinkers.
Colleges are centers of education. That's what they're there for, to educate and enlighten the students that choose to pursue higher education. To say an institution that's fundamentally progressive is too progressive is kinda silly, don't you think? Ideologies that apotheosize backward and tribal ideals have no place in schools, outside of in educating people on their atrocities.
