Poll: 73 Percent of Republican Students Have Hidden Their Politics over Fears about Grades

turning-colleges-democrats-students-weak-whiny college studentsA recent survey of 1,000 Republican and Republican-leaning college students has found that 73 percent of them have hidden their political views in the classroom — because they’re worried that exposing them could negatively impact their grades.

College Pulse conducted the online poll at the end of August for a conservative campus-news source, The College Fix, which has previously reported on its findings. The survey polled conservative-leaning students only.

Of course, a student smart enough to value Republican principles is also smart enough to conceal them from a liberal professor. Do those biased professors really think they are persuading intelligent college students to support policies that have already failed repeatedly when implemented in the past???

All conservatives should withhold any grants or funding for left leaning colleges and universities. They appear to not likes our views and therefore do not deserve our hard earned dollars!

This kind of classroom experience has produced spoiled liberals whose response to a challenge of their beliefs is to behave like the proverbial brat/bully. They’ve been and remain a protected class (by PC, hate-speech laws with liberal interpretations, and $$ support) who believe it is their right to tell others how to think, live, and behave. What they don’t realize is they themselves have been trained as puppets for the $$ supporters.

I had a professor give me a C on one paper where I wrote in favor of a flat tax. The only C that I received in the course of a four year degree. It became apparent very quickly that he had a liberal perspective. And I learned to write what the professors wanted to hear instead of what I believed to survive and succeed in that environment. Graduated with a 4.0 and glad to be out of that crap. Trump 2020!

This is a sad testament to the lefts’ attempts to destroy anyone that disagrees with them.

Left Wing Academia has spent generations turning Freedom into Freedumb. Misspellings are just fine if they benefit The Left’s cause.

The Dumbing-Down of America has, ironically, been in the works for generations..literally generations…inside of American academia.

It’s a sad truth that supposedly the “Land of the FREE” has become prisoners to the leftists takeovers in our media and universities.
Bible prophecy warned about this but I though with the end of WW2 it had ended, however its getting worse, no “constitutional conservative” is safe to speak their minds.
Ronald Reagan spoke the ultimate truth: “If we lose our freedoms here in America there is no where else to go”!!!

The business world is no different. Policies state no political discussion in the office but from what I have experienced, Democrats can discuss and opine without fear of being judged negatively or passed over for promotions, projects, etc.
However, should one express opinions that align with a Republican view/policy regardless of political affiliation or lack of, the treatment is much different.
Politics has destroyed this country.
I pity the younger generations and the dog eat dog world they will have to live in.

Something need to be done about American higher education. Is seems overpriced and all they do is indoctrinate our kids.
