Liberal academia is losing customers because of its radicalism

Washington Times:
A survey released this week by the Washington-based Pew Research Center shows Republicans have never been more down on higher education.

Just 36 percent say the institution has a positive effect on the nation, compared with 58 percent who say it has a negative effect. Those numbers were almost reversed two years ago, when 54 percent of Republicans said higher education had a beneficial effect on the nation, compared with 37 percent who said it had a harmful effect.

Bookending those two years were massive student demonstrations that shut down the University of Missouri and Evergreen State College in Washington, with countless conservative speakers disinvited, protested or shouted down on seemingly every other campus in between.

In February, protesters clad in black masks and armed with poles, fireworks and bricks set fires and smashed windows at the University of California, Berkeley, to preempt a scheduled lecture by conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.

“Higher education has been progressively radicalizing for a long time, but recent events have brought the extent of it into high relief,” Mr. Whalen said. “It’s virtually beyond parody. Campus violence, suppression of speech and intellectual inquiry, and the rather haughty presumption of moral superiority undercut confidence that much of real value is going on there.”
The University of Missouri has had to shut down dorms because of a lack of students after riots on that campus.  Evergreen is facing attempts by state lawmakers to defund it  Too many of these campuses have been taken over by the forces of liberal fascism and their militant wing the brownshirt terrorist.  Why would any conservative want to subject their students to that environment?
