College Insurrection Enters Senior Year

College Insurrection Enters Senior Year

Politics, culture and news in higher education…

Professor Jacobson published the first College Insurrection post on August 22, 2012.

Welcome to College Insurrection

Since then, we’ve published over 8,000 posts about free speech, rape culture, due process, microaggressions, trigger warnings, white privilege, the BDS movement, wacky professors, speech zones, liberal bias, the higher ed bubble and dozens of other issues which affect campus life every day.

I’ve been with the site since the beginning but I’ve had plenty of help from Leslie Eastman, Casey Breznick, Nathaniel Hunter, David Ticzon and Kemberlee Kaye as well as occasional guest authors Isaac Morrison and Hans Bader.

As a writer who has been covering this beat for three years now, I think I should speak candidly.

We have a serious problem happening on American college campuses.

Colleges and universities should be leading the way for freedom of expression but they’re not; in many cases it’s the exact opposite.

College students should feel safe to speak their minds but many of them don’t.

It’s not just students either. Many professors, scholars and scientists are forced to deal with politically correct campus culture.

Let’s not forget the financial problems America is facing over higher education.

Student loan debt now tops one trillion dollars and despite recent rose-colored glasses reports, unemployment among college grads is still high, yet the borrowing continues.

Liberal politicians like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders offer false hope to college students in the form of more government loans and supposedly free college, while real reformers like Governor Scott Walker get compared to Hitler.

Things are so bad that Animal House has been shut down for real. In case you haven’t noticed, the left has become the Dean Wormer administration.

There are four letter words in this video but you can handle that without a trigger warning, right?

We hope you’ll keep reading College Insurrection as we head into another year.

There’s never a dull moment.

You all have been doing a great job with College Insurrection – there’s really nothing else quite like it out there! And I appreciate the weekly CI round-ups you post here at LI.

Given the still-sad state of our institutions of higer learning, it may seem sometimes like you’re not making a difference; but just getting the information out there and in such a coherent format is surely making a huge difference in and of itself.

Keep up the good work!

I love College Insurrection!

As a parent of 2 in college, and about to embark on my own higher-degree journey ( the Bachelor’s Degree is the new HS diploma, doncha know….), the blog is both informative and fun, and it shows there is a great unrecognized band of brothers coming up through the campuses. Courageous conservatives!

Keep it up!! And, I hope you’re prepping your replacement upon your graduation, Aleister. We need more, much more, exposed and changed (dare I say fundamentally transformed?!) on our college campuses today. Not to mention…ALL of education, pre=K thru 12th, too.

Thank you. And thank you, Prof. Jacobson, for bringing the blog to life.

It’s worth mentioning again…

Aleister, you, CI, and the contributors to CI are sina qua non. Thank you for keeping us informed.

Our education has become indoctrination. When you have the children’s ear by force then you guide their ideals They wish now to demand that they get the child earlier by preschool programs. The parent is finding they have little or no say in the education delivered to the young mind that absorbs the way they will use their logic for their entire life.
