…the following excerpt from Jon Street’s article at campusreform.org might be of interest:
A recent study found that U.S. college professors donate exclusively to Democrats over Republicans by a 95:1 ratio.
Two researchers, Heterodox Academy Director of Research Sean Stevens and Brooklyn College Professor Mitchell Langbert conducted the study, published by the National Association of Scholars. They looked at the political donations of 12,372 college professors at universities in 31 states and the District of Columbia during the past two election cycles in 2015-16 and 2017-18.
Stevens and Langbert conducted their study by looking at political donation data available from the Federal Election Commission.
Of those professors, 2,112 made political donations, 2,081 of which were donated to Democrats. Just 22 of those 2,112 professors donated to Republicans. Nine professors donated to both Republicans and Democrats, according to the study.
The findings indicate that professors donated to Democrats more than Republicans by a 95:1 ratio. In addition to the number of professors who donated to Democrats versus Republicans, the study also revealed how many professors are registered to vote as Democrats compared with professors who are registered as Republicans. Nearly half of the 12,372 professors — 48.5 percent — are registered Democrats while just 5.7 percent are registered Republicans.
Are you surprised?
Did you doubt for a second that academia is run by Democrats – more exactly, the left, very often the hard left?
Think about how many conservatives have been either prevented or disrupted to the point that they might as well have been, while trying to speak at colleges and universities. Ann Coulter, Ben Shapiro, etc. etc. etc. etc . etc. The list is huge.
Not only is prevention of conservative voices at colleges and universities a regular occurrence, but I am speculating that the only reason it isn’t even more extensive is that some have just given up and won’t bother trying to speak on a college/university campus.
Now try to come up with left wing speakers who have been prevented? Can you think of any at all?
This study is not news, it is just plain reaffirmation of what anyone who pays any attention already knows.
Now I’d love to see a study on how many professors donate to anti-Israel causes/support the so-called Boycott Divest Sanction (BDS) movement.
Trust me: that would be nothing but a reaffirmation too.
