Read it all and weep. I would also suggest that if you need to choose a university for your child, you should cross off Swarthmore University, the University of New Hampshire, Idaho State University, College of the Canyons (in Los Angeles), Western University (in London), University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Harvard University, Brandeis University, the University of California-Los Angeles, Kansas University, North Carolina University, Scripps College (in California), the University of Pittsburgh, the University of Washington, the University of Ottawa (in Canada), the University of Georgia, Quinnipiac University, and the University of California-Merced.

Most of these are government colleges, which also means that as voters we should also be demanding that their government funding should cease, now, immediately, without any negotiation. They are not only failing to educate their students, the academics who run these colleges are actually teaching them very stupid and bad ideas. They should be forced to find some real work where they will be no longer be able to do society this harm.

    Sorry Bob – disagree. Believe we should let it play out and use the opportunity as a teachable moment. This is clearly a new variation on the Red Guard/Cultural Revolution. It will turn hostile and violent, and target the faculty/Admin/staff and fellow students – regardless of their political persuasions. They will eat their own.
    Many students will suspend their education or transfer – taking their tuition with them – even demanding refunds (in court if necessary), many Alumni orgs will cut back or pull plug. This will truly hurt leftist Academia more than the gov’t – which they want to fight and rail against anyway.
    If Swarthmore University (or any other) found itself unable to function for a semester or two (or three), the sun will still rise in the east.
    I want to see this play out.

    Hey, it is nice for youto recognise the disease in the University of Ottawa; but good luck trying to get the current administration to cut funding. Funding will probably increase now.
