On Monday the hard-Left Talking Points Memo ran an article entitled : “Poll: Majority Of Republicans Now Say Colleges Are Bad For America.” The Leftist media is chattering this week about this, claiming that it is evidence that Republicans and conservatives are ignorant yahoos who oppose higher education. In reality, of course, Republicans and conservatives have a negative view of higher education because our nation’s colleges and universities have become radioactive wastelands of Leftist indoctrination, with fascists running free and shouting down and physically menacing speakers and students who dare hold views that dissent from the far-Left line.
This is not the fault of those fascist students alone. They wouldn’t be the self-righteous, willfully ignorant, indoctrinated bots they are at places as supposedly disparate as UC-Berkeley, Harvard, Yale, Georgetown, DePaul, the University at Buffalo, Truman State University and Saint Anselm College were it not for their professors and administrators. The Left began its Long March Through the Institutions in the 1960s, and for years now no one could get hired as a professor without marching in political lockstep with the Left. Administrators likewise have aided and abetted the transformation of what were once institutions of higher learning into increasingly ridiculous deserts of Leftist groupthink; the only thing not ridiculous about them is contemptible, that they’re increasingly violent toward dissenters.
Exhibit A of a professor who has no business being a professor at all, since all he really is is a hard-Left propagandist: Hatem Bazian, the founder of the Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project at the University of California at Berkeley. Researching and documenting “Islamophobia” doesn’t mean that Bazian keeps track of louts harassing innocent Muslims. No, Bazian is essentially a professor of Sharia Enforcement: he uses the smear propaganda term “Islamophobia” to stigmatize those of us who dare to note how Islamic jihadis use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and make recruits among peaceful Muslims. Anyone who notices that the jihadis’ motivating ideology is Islamic to the core has already been or soon will be added to Bazian’s list of “Islamophobes”; the objective is to make everyone too frightened of this stigmatization to speak out, so that no will will dare utter a word and the jihad can advance unopposed and unimpeded. This makes Bazian a Professor of Jihad.
Bazian is a Professor of Jihad in other ways as well: he is head of a group with multiple ties to the jihad terror group Hamas, and he has openly called for an intifada, a violent uprising, not in Israel only, but in the United States as well.
In a sane society, Hatem Bazian would at very least be under investigation for ties to jihad terror activity, and would be a prime candidate for deportation. Instead, he is a respected professor at a prestigious university. He is thus the prime example in the entire country of how our academic institutions have lost their way, deserve no public funding, and are in radical need of reform.
