Consumer Reports

$40,000 a year for brainwashing? | A leftist professor isn't worried that conservatives produce more kids than liberals do, since universities effectively destroy the values traditionalist parents try to instill.

"I don't need to have kids to create mini-me voters: I get classrooms full of other people's kids," writes Bill Savage of Northwestern University. "…Loyal dittoheads will continue to drop off their children at the dorms…And then they are all mine."

On my radio show, Savage said that conservative homes keep kids away from liberal ideas, but once they encounter enlightened thinking they instantly see its superiority.

In fact, it's far easier for liberals to isolate offspring from opposing viewpoints than it is for right wingers  —   given leftist bias in entertainment, and the teaching profession at all levels.

At least Professor Savage acknowledges the agenda in elite colleges  —   raising painful questions for parents who proudly pay $40,000 a year to let academics treat their kids as ideological pawns.
