Self-Identifying Marxist Professors Outnumber Conservatives as College Professors

June 15, 2016, Spencer Irvine, 6 Comments

At a recent American Enterprise Institute (AEI) event, panel speakers outlined how self-identifying Marxists outnumber conservatives on college campuses:

    An AEI panel discussion last Wednesday, titled “The Close-Minded Campus? The Stifling of Ideas in American Universities,” focused on the scarcity of conservative professors and students in the social sciences, with the panelists noting that conservatives are outnumbered in the field even by self-proclaimed Marxists.

    About 18 percent of social scientists in the United States self-identify as Marxists, compared to only about 5 percent who identify as conservatives, Dunn and Shields reported.

“Offering information and analysis to understand the rise of White supremacy and other systemic oppressions, and strategies, skills, and models of advocacy to resist oppression in the current time and climate,” organizers stated online.

Those leading the workshops were mostly professors. The workshops took place in classrooms, however “My Union will be Intersectional or it will be Bullshit” took place in a faculty lounge.  ...

I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.
