What is it they say about college students? That they have an undue sense of privilege? University of Toledo’s College Republicans are making stereotypes come true, as they wage war against the liberal anti-Bush professors who are discriminating against them!
The group is amassing a list of professors with liberal political views that, according to the Republican student group, interfere with their teaching duties.
UT College Republicans President Matt Rubin, a junior majoring in political science and public administration, said the list is not an attempt to bash professors who have liberal ideas, but instead, it is an attempt to speak out for students who may have been victims of the bias, which was then reflected in their grade.
[…] “We realize that some professors are liberal, and that’s ok, it’s when they completely disregard a student’s opinion or they have a bias against them that might affect the way they are treated or graded, is what we think is wrong,” Rubin said.
These kids are scoring poorly because of what they believe in. We cannot have that at institutions of higher education! Discrimination is wrong in all forms, especially when these Republicans find themselves being targeted … like homosexuals.
“We’ve been portrayed in the media, as well as comments from people in the community including College Democrats, saying that we’re creating a blacklist in order to smear the names of professors and that’s not true,” Rubin said. “We’re giving a voice to the students that have been harassed because of their political beliefs. It’s the same thing as bashing a student because they’re gay.”
