Student Complains After Prof Assigns Libertarian Reading Material

Student Complains After Prof Assigns Libertarian Reading Material

“ideological garbage”

The professor assigned reading from the Cato Institute. What a crime.

The College Fix reported:

Student tries to get professor in trouble for assigning her libertarian reading

University of St. Francis student Jennifer Martin tweeted Wednesday that her professor (an adjunct, it turns out) gave her an assigned reading on “national health care systems” from the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank that is widely respected in D.C. for the quality of its research and thought-provoking events (one such event covered here last fall).

Cato also got tens of millions in funding over the years from Charles and David Koch, the billionaire brothers who are active in Republican politics, and it was co-founded by Charles four decades ago.

This was enough for Martin to declare that her professor had committed an academic sin, and she would get this person in trouble for giving her “ideological garbage” from a “conservative propaganda machine” to read. (Never mind the Kochs sued Cato for control of a board seat five years ago, and the settlement protected Cato’s independence.)

How long ago was it when you were expected to read, and comment on writings that you did not agree with when attending college?

Personally, I’d lean toward hiring anyone with a GED over most college grads these days.

Intellectual fraud seems to be the baseline of higher education now.

I’d be willing to bet this snowflake has no problem being assigned the works of Marx, whose ideological track record includes the murder of over 100 million. It’s time to shout these people down for what they are: treasonous morons.

    She could not read Marx if it was a Classic Comics edition. Don’t give her credit where none is likely.

You go girl. Don’t anybody try to infect you with any of that liberty $#!T. Maoism is the only way. Red Guards forever!

Can you imagine what would happen if this snowflake had to read St. Francis, the school’s namesake? It should be a required first year course actually. Separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. No ebonics version, of course. And in English instead of Latin.
