Phyllis Schlafly spent much time documenting specific abuses of the leftist bias on college campuses. Her April 2014 Phyllis Schlafly Report is a classic example of her practical and informative style.
In this issue, Phyllis worked to boldly expose the feminist propaganda in the textbooks put in the hands of college students. She called one typical textbook a “collection of propaganda essays to sell students on radical feminism.” Phyllis advised students to “not waste their tuition dollars taking women’s studies courses.” Even outside of the women’s studies department, many professors use their bully pulpit to force victimhood ideology down the throats of unsuspecting young people. They paint women as oppressed at the hands of a “merciless patriarchal system.” Of course, most Americans outside the bubble of university liberalism find reality to be quite different.
The bubble of university liberalism also shields unsuspecting students from the realities of communism and socialism. Whether or not students hear it from their history professors, it is the socialists on the left, not the right, who most closely resemble the politics of the fascist Third Reich. Those same biased professors teach that Marxism has never failed. But anyone with even a cursory knowledge of history knows that nothing could be further from the truth. When truth is not seen as the paramount virtue in an educational institution, no free discourse can ever be possible.
First and foremost, it is tragic that the leaders of tomorrow are not exposed to the truth on so many fundamental issues. Second, it’s tragic that so many parents are paying to send their students off to these colleges without any real knowledge of what they are paying for. Third, it is tragic that many of these propaganda machines posing as educational institutions are receiving taxpayer funding from citizens like you and me. Thankfully, the Phyllis Schlafly Report has the tools to remedy these tragedies. Not only can it be a valuable tool for students who want to know the truth they won’t get at school, but it can also give knowledge to parents and taxpayers who want to hold schools accountable for how they spend the money they are given.
