    With a liberal to conservative ratio of 17:1, it is abundantly clear that Marxists professors have been doing this very thing for years. Cut the ratio to 3:1 or cut their public funding. Taxpayers should not be forced to pay the freight for the ideological subversion of their children.

    My nephew had to LIE on written tests to pass his critical race classes. And he was attending college for engineering. Disgraceful.

    If that happened to your daughter that would tell me you didn’t do a good job parenting her.

    You do know that engineers are over represented as terrorists? Like they’re more prone to terrorism than any other major? And to stop that we need to make sure we have programs to deradicalize them? Why do you think your engineer son had to go through a “CRT” class? The “CRT” class is designed to help reduce radicalization.

    As for your political ideology litmus test? I’ll take it more seriously when you stop conflating liberalism and Marxism. Seriously, it just makes you look like you don’t know what you’re talking about when you say that.

    He's not getting rid of tenure. I don't expect this to be a problem.

    I'm sorry...I just can't deal with this bullshit. Did anyone think that maybe terrorists learn engineering because that is the best way to learn to make bombs and destroy buildings with em? That wanting to be an engineer =/= wanting to be a terrorist? Why in the world do people not understand that correlation does not equal causation?

    Jesus Christ on a Cracker. This has got to be THE Stupidest explanation I have ever heard to require CRT.

    Do a better job parenting and you won’t have to be worried about this perceived threat of teachers trying to turn your daughter into a man. Take some responsibility in raising your kids right.

    In what regard? You mean in regards to my definition of freedom of speech or are you trying to get me to say “only the rules apply to people I like”?

    To say nothing of the quality of living in Florida. I mean, how can you have good governance when you can’t educate administrators because no one wants to teach the next generation of bureaucrats?

    You would be right! Except that explanation was rejected on the grounds that it implies terrorists become engineers when it’s the opposite. Engineers become terrorists. I mean think about it. Why would an organization entrust money to send someone to school where they might become deradicalized or worse expose the cell? Too risky.

    In yours there are only the sheep and the sheep

    Do any of you have any idea of how tenure relates to academic freedom? No? Let me rephrase. Do have any idea of what academic freedom is?. Oh hell, c'mon guys, let's make it simple. What is freedom, period?

    Weakening tenure is the worst thing you can do if you want to protect professors who don't follow orthodoxy. Tenure is the best defense professors have from being driven from the profession by other professors.

    No, he's just making it so that a board of politicians can review your history of political contributions every 5 years, no problem there at all.

    Agreed, Disgraceful.

    Seems academia has turned against one of it's most valued principals, namely, the exchange of differing ideas, opinions and positions and openly discuss them. Instead, the left, has shown a desires to suppress any ideas, opinions and positions which differ from their own, not only in the widespread areas of public speech, social media speech, but also in academia itself.

    This drive of the left need be thwarted, failing to do so places the liberties and freedoms of the US Republic at risk, as well as any liberties and freedoms the world might see.

    Sure. The Terrorist takes an engineering class so they can build better terror bombs, to attack the "Great Satan" with, but then they propagandized in the engineering questions that America is fundamentally racist filled with "power structures" by which white folks exploit people of color and the alphabet folks and they immediately think "What was I thinking, I can't bomb these guys, they're awesome!"

    Seems foolproof!
