OP-ED: Professors Openly Admit They Discriminate Against Conservatives

Well this came as a bit of a shock.  A new study by Yoel Inbar and Joris Lammers , two psychologists from the Netherlands, found that liberal professors admitted they would discriminate against openly conservative peers in both hiring and in advancement.

Even the authors of the study were surprised by the candid responses provided by the professors.  Inbar (a former Obama campaign volunteer) stated that, “Usually you have to be pretty tricky to get people to say they’d discriminate against minorities.”

This study is troubling for a variety of reasons, and provides a unique glimpse into the mind of the average college professor.

The first cause for concern is the open way in which professors said they would discriminate against a conservative colleague.   If a professor admitted they would openly discriminate against a colleague who was a certain religion/ethnicity, they would be fired and black listed from academe.  On the other hand, discriminating against someone with a different world view is seen as socially acceptable in the modern university.

The second part of this study begs the question: What does this mean for conservative students? If their professors willingly admit that they’d discriminate against conservative professors, does this mean that they’ll also extend those prejudices out against conservative students?

    I was conservative throughout my UNIVERSITY career-I kept quite&listened.If I had VOICEd my OPINION as others Rarely chose 2 do, I would have been OSTRacIzeD by my peers,as others were.I found during those trying CLASSES 2 observe the LIBERAL HATRED.AS THIS STUDY DID I realized progressives ALLOW themselves 2 DISCRIMINATE against CONSERVATIVES ALMOST as a NECESSARY social skill. SAD but they wouldn’t have any NEW PROGRESSIVES for future generations if they DIDN’T have the STRATEGY of BRAIN WASHING the YOUNG& impressionable.

    If you’re averse to change even in the face of new information, why are you going to college? If the thing you’re trying to teach people in college is “change is bad” rather than “here’s how to ask questions and explore change”, you need to be in Afghanistan WITH THE TALIBAN.

      You brainwashed, just the way we like it, an automaton serving the hive mind, you think you make part of the 1% elite but you don’t, once you’ve served your purpose, we will just discard you like the usefull idiot that you are.thank you for making it so easy, we never knew it would be this simple.

      You feed you change and you take it, how stupid, you have no idea how much we laugh at how stupid you are, in thinking how modern and up to date you being.

      The irony is trully entertaining, you aid in your own self destruction. You wouldn’t understand cause we don’t want you to, we need you to serve our purpose.

      Thanks
