Ideocracy has literally taken over on far too many college and university campuses and in their classrooms. According to the Daily Caller, students at Arizona State university decided to protest President Donald Trump rather than write a final exam. Are college students being educated to be socialist anarchists rather than contributors to America’s betterment and future?
University professor Angeles Maldonado has joined the hundreds if not thousands of liberal professors of higher education to actually lower the value of those degrees. He decided last week to give students an option to write the test or rant about Trump. No one should be surprised that students of his “Global Politics and Human Rights” course, immediately chose to “group protest,” according to The College Fix.
With tens of thousands of students spilling out of higher learning institutions every year being fixated on the notion that protest in college can be easily transferred to protest at your future job, or at an event or at a neighborhood school is justified. If it is condoned by university administers and professors, the legitimization of this accepted practice can be dangerous to the nation’s future.
The professor who abandoned his professorial responsibility stated, “The students decided to ‘speak out’ by lining up outside the ASU library and hoisting up a series of letters that spelled ‘Wall Against Hate!’,” reported the Daily Caller. He stressed, “The class decided that as a group project they wanted to make their voices heard about the issues that are affecting them today, so instead of just reading about the human-rights violations, they’d speak out about the current violations that are happening,”
Apparently, the professor believed that students learning how to spell the letters of “Wall of Hate” in a sign is a serious indication of their academic accomplishment in his class. The emphasis on adolescent behavior that somehow triggers their need to be cuddled by the university professor and establishment is tragic.
So, as the group of student non-achievers protested President Trump, LGBT rights, women’s rights, Black Lives Matter, immigration issues and a litany of other liberal concerns did students actually learn anything, except “PROTEST GOOD…LEARNING BAD…TEST TAKING HORRIBLE?”
