COLLEGE LIFE THEN
Most of us remember fondly the day we left home to attend college. We felt freedom and a challenge to succeed. New friends, the smell of the college library, dorm life – it was a happy event. Our parents believed they were sending us off to a trusted place where we would return with what we needed to become truly independent thinkers and productive members of society. There were those who did not hold our values, but then there were those who did.
An oped published on Monday, June 12, 2017 in the Chattanooga Times Free Press show how times have changed. It gives information on a young group of Socialist at the University of Georgia in Athens. They call themselves The Young Democratic Socialist and describe their mission as follows:
Young Democratic Socialists works with local, state, and national organizations to raise awareness about important social and economic issues and to address them through direct action.
It is this group who tweeted in response to a college professor who said, “House Republicans should be lined up and shot.”
“House Republicans should NOT be shot! They should be guillotined.”
The exchange began with a professor at The University of Washington .
I’m convinced state-supported colleges are going to continue to be bastions of hatred, prejudice, and far-left political ideology until parents decide enough is enough and stop enabling students to attend these institutions.
WHO ARE YOUNG REPUBLICAN CONSERVATIVES?
It is difficult to say whether state supported colleges and universities or the media do more damage to conservatives. Either way, the end result is the same. This poster probably describes it best:
Isn’t it time for parents, conservative students, and Americans who care to fight back? (Unlike the groups above I am not suggesting we use guns or a guillotine.)
Information on who Conservative College Republicans actually are may be found at College Republican National Committee.
