UO Student's Research Tells Us Something We Already Knew

http://www.csmonitor.com/2009/0713/p09s02-coop.html

*Note* article not written by a conservative.

Yet, out of the 111 registered Oregon voters in the departments of journalism, law, political science, economics, and sociology, there were only two registered Republicans.

[...]

A number of conservative students told me they felt Republican ideas were frequently caricatured and rarely presented fairly. Did the dearth of conservative professors on campus and apparent marginalization of ideas on the right belie the university's commitment to providing a marketplace of ideas?

[...]

I also suggested that students working on right-leaning ideas may have difficulty finding faculty mentors. I couldn't imagine, for instance, that journalism that supported the Iraq war or gun rights would be met with much enthusiasm.

[...]

A professor who confronted me declared that he was "personally offended" by my column. He railed that his political viewpoints never affected his teaching and suggested that if I wanted a faculty with Republicans I should have attended a university in the South. "If you like conservatism you can certainly attend the University of Texas and you can walk past the statue of Jefferson Davis everyday on your way to class," he wrote in an e-mail.
Sad but true. The common "Diversity is good, unless you disagree with the liberal establishment" mentality.

I found that mentality with most professors in many aspects beyond politics.

As people do better, they start voting like Republicans -- unless they have too much education and vote Democratic, which proves there can be too much of a good thing.

When you read more, and are exposed to more, and use logic the outcomes are almost always the same. How many of you went to university??

You're from LA, you were a business student, who was in a frat, of course you are conservative. No one is mad about it.

So everyone who is running around saying the sky is falling when 90% of sociology, and philosophy (humanities) professors are liberal. Just seems a little silly? Am I right. They choose to spend their lives studying the world around them, is it no wonder they are humanitarian by nature??

If you cant argue logically for why you hold your philosophies in an academic setting then they are NOT valid. Don't take it as "he wont listen because I am contradicting." Just because you hold an opinion doesn't make it valid.
