TOLERANCE: Universities ramping up efforts to exterminate all conservative professors as radical Left runs philosophical PURGE

College campuses in the 1960s were incubators of free speech, as Leftists used them to launch their “counterculture” movement that sought to displace traditional core values.

Now, 50 years later, those same campuses are exclusively Left-wing — and implicitly anti-free speech.

As reported by Breitbart, Towson (Maryland) University Prof. Richard Vatz notes that despite academic institutions’ reputation for encouraging and supporting freedom of speech and the free exchange of ideas and views, there has been “an increasing and unremitting effort to eliminate conservatives” in all areas of higher education.

And usually under the guise of ‘purging racism, bigotry, sexism, homophobia,’ etc.

What’s more, when Vatz said he brought up his concerns with the National Communication Association, officials there could not have cared less.

“There has been an increasing and unremitting effort to eliminate conservatives and conservative thought in the humanities and social sciences in the American academy,” he wrote in a recent op-ed for the Baltimore Sun newspaper.

“Higher education prides itself on two overarching values: supporting the marketplace of ideas and academic freedom,” Vatz noted. “Channeling the late civil rights advocate President John F. Kennedy, who said ‘Are we to say to the world — and much more importantly, to each other — that this is the land of the free, except for the Negro?’”

“Today, he would have said of colleges and universities, ‘Are we to say to the world — and much more importantly, to each other — higher education today is for diversity and equity except for conservatives?’” he added.

Of course, the Left doesn’t care about its own hypocrisy. In fact, it’s like a requirement in order to be a card-carrying member of the American political, social, and cultural Left: If you don’t live in a world of false virtue and posturing, then you can’t join.

Vatz has been teaching at Towson University for four-and-a-half decades. Having been invited to speak at many other universities around the country and having been part of the Legislative Assembly at the National Communication Association, he says he has seen similar persecution of conservatives all over U.S. academia.
