Want to stop cultural Marxist indoctrination? Cut public funding of universities

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Conservative MP and leadership candidate Andrew Scheer wants to defund universities that don’t support freedom of speech, but why not take it a step further? 

Why not take away provincial and federal money from all universities

Let’s face it, universities have become a breeding ground for radicalized cultural Marxist thought. Most professors lean left and indoctrinate their students with their political ideologies.

Twenty-five years of data on left-leaning university professors shows this is a problem that’s been festering in all universities for decades, so it isn’t just an issue in schools that overtly shut down free speech.

Watch as I explain why I think Scheer’s plan is a bit naive and doesn’t go far enough if we truly want to correct this problem and ultimately, improve the quality of education.

How can we trust an education system that puts political correctness over truth?

We can’t, and this is why universities and degrees will become obsolete.

We need to talk about this on a much more regular basis. We need Peterson interviewed on a regular basis. Do another story on this Holly, and another.

Tammie said, “Trolls are like toddlers with a full diaper & excrement running down their leg; the adults quickly have to decide, who’s gonna deal with the foulness!”

Your comment is very apt, Tammie. Good one!

The professors are abusing their positions to indoctrinate students into an ideology that is not only failed, but runs contrary to our society. This is a Breach of Trust, a chargeable offense. Additionally, encouraging others to riot is also a criminal offense.

yeah ,yeah, yeah.
Why should we consider what a troll has to say? Seriously pathetic.

I suppose this would make sense to uneducated people. Get those book reading elitists right in the learning hole! #MAGA etc.

Educated Canadians are laughing at how the Lumpenproletariat purport to hate “Marxism” yet don’t hesitate to suggest the exact same strategies to suppress dissent.

Around the time that Ezra was going through his ordeal over the mohammed cartoons, a professor at Saint Mary’s in Halifax named Peter March was the Jordan Peterson of that era. He stood firm for his right to discuss the issue in his philosophy class against all manner of threats to his person and his rice bowl.

He had a plan to reduce the costs of post secondary education by re-opening boarded up high schools. There is no good reason why an undergraduaye degree in arts, humanities, or any number of non technical studies need to cost any more than a high school education. We pay dearly for the trappings of university prestige and all of the regiemes that provide undergradutate degrees “free” in countries that brag about it do it “no frills”. BTW Canada never live up to a UN commitment to do so. Ireland did.

A university education is nothing that would actually cost more than the price of a library card and about $50 in late fines.

Universities become money pit mortgage basket cases of buildings and aquisition of overpriced land and monstrous and ever growing bureaucracy style administrations….which provide employment to graduates of other universities….and rarely their own.

Don’t you just love it when those greedy professors go on strike because they are not making enough money?

One of my professors even told my class that if he wanted to make less money, then he would have become a high school teacher.

“Yes universities are indoctrinating students – but they always have.” William Kay I must heartily disagree.

Forty or so years ago Universities were not nearly as government funded as they are today. As funding grew so did government interference. New disciplines were debated within the Universities before they were accepted and taught, unlike today where a course on every social whim is included because the government thinks it is a good idea. Big difference between then and now in educational institutions. Government should never be involved and they are now more than ever before in History. Universities used to be about the pursuit of truth. Today nothing could be further from the truth.

In business, you don’t hire these indoctrinated people for positions where creativity, thinking out of the box, solutions-seeking, independence is needed. You put them in repetitive subordinate types of jobs, with very little latitude. On my own experience, they are no fun to work with, with their non-stop complaining victimhood. I fully agree with cutting the funding, it is no longer education.

It’s even worse than that. In Toronto, Ontario, for example, for years the left-wing city council has allowed groups like O.C.A.P. to organize the poor to go out to “rallies” which turn into riots. The unions for the city workers who deal with the poor, homeless, etc. for years has allowed their members to tell the poor and homeless who to vote for in any elections, and it isn’t the Conservative Party they’re being encouraged to vote for.

You would think that Canada is a “free country” and every Canadian citizen is free to vote their conscience, but, no. If you are economically disadvantaged, the left is going to pressure you into voting NDP or Liberal. Yeah, it’s a free country alright, but not in the mind of the Leftists.

Once again a Rebel monologue that one can sort of get behind, but not really. Yes universities are indoctrinating students – but they always have. Again we must whether a muddled barrage of contradictory political adjectives: liberalism, leftism and, of course, the bogey-man de jour “Cultural Marxism.” A few months ago I posted a video entitled Cultural Marxism and the Alt-Right which may be of interest:

Liza, “Gov’t and Google can only hire so many of them, nobody else will want them.” That’s precisely the scam they are running. Fake degrees to protect their fake jobs. Paid by us, no less (we pay for the degrees, then pay for the jobs. Nothing like getting it in both ends). Then they open up the borders so unlicensed, unaccredited workers can steal blue collar jobs from everyone else.

Cut the funding for universities. And, then remove tax dollars and our kids from the public schools where they are being indoctrinated with Gender identity, the new Sex-Ed curriculum, and the climate change hoax. After that if we allow M-103 to pass, it’s off to highschool for some mandatory teaching on Systemic Racism as seen through the eyes of the Muslim Brotherhood. Forget it, these institutions are not where we want our kids to be. It’s far too extreme and dangerous.

That female commie pinko professor screaming for everybody to get rid of the media at the university has no rights to be a professor when obviously her real objective is to turn all university students into communists. School is not the place for political agendas. Everyone is aware of this happening in our schools so why aren’t these commie traitors and spies being kicked out of all school systems? It’s insane to allow the communist infestation (which is against democracy and will use violence and eventually kill people who are against communism based on historic evidence) in Canada to exist. Communism is an extremely violent death movement and needs to be criminalized in Canada. These communist movements are hidden and in the dark because it’s full of criminal activity (on par with the Nazis) and is against everyone else’s rights. Ms. pinko professor needs to be fired and deported to a communist nation like Venezuela.

Defund and disallow or at least significantly lower number of foreign students. Universities say they will have to close under such conditions. They need to let the free market moderate their practices and dictate need. That would put an end to snowflakes and the twisted academics who mess with kid’s minds.

If I were hiring, I would be leery about hiring indoctrinated University students. Gov’t and Google can only hire so many of them, nobody else will want them.

Holly Nicholas, excellent report!
I agree with you, Andrew Scheer is naive and his plan doesn’t address what Universities have truly become.
Education & critical thinking has been replaced with indoctrination; and students who struggle to function & have great difficulty in meeting the expectations of the workplace. Employers can greatly impact this sad reality if they refuse to hire graduates from the worst offenders! During interviews, it becomes apparent how the prospective employee sitting in front of you will affect your business. Take the time to ask the questions and listen to what they are saying very closely.
