Cornell Student Bullied After Pointing Out Anti-Trump Bias in Academia on FOX News
“I was mentally and emotionally unprepared for the backlash”
The left has repeatedly made their position quite clear. If you are not sufficiently anti-Trump, you will be targeted.
The College Fix reports:
Intolerance at Cornell: After my Fox News appearance, bullying and threats began. It got so bad I sought counseling.
It is difficult to express conservative views as a college student without being called names, attacked personally, or even threatened by peers. I know because I’ve lived it.
The worst came after I appeared on Fox News in May to voice alarm over a new course at my Ivy League institution that deeply criticized Donald Trump while venerating Barack Obama.
“Based on the syllabus it doesn’t seem like a fair conversation,” I said about the new government course offered this past fall at Cornell called “America Confronts the World.” The syllabus accused Trump of xenophobic nationalism while describing Obama as a pragmatic cosmopolitan.
“If I were to walk into the classroom I don’t think I would feel comfortable expressing my views. I am somebody who likes to take a fair stance. I think it’s important that we are critical of the president but we also recognize the good that he’s done. I don’t think that would be encouraged in this class.”
Asked by the Fox News host if there is an overwhelming liberal bias at Cornell, I said yes.
“When you have a professor telling you what is right and what is incorrect rather than having the students decide for themselves, to research beyond the headline and analyze the situation, I think they just take whatever the professor tells them and they are not able to see the indoctrination,” I said…
While I expected disagreement from many Cornellians for my views, I was mentally and emotionally unprepared for the backlash, name calling, and threats to my physical safety.
Some peers called me “hateful” for being critical of the course, even though I never attacked the professor’s character. Others suggested I was bigoted, even though they had never met me.

Ithaca is surrounded by reality. saw that when I went there.
I am so sorry this happened to this young man.
I hope he is able to complete his studies. To enter an Ivy League is still considered prestigious, although that reputation is deeply tarnished because of this hard-leftism (I’d call it Marxist with Fascist-tyrannical dictatorship tendencies). He should be able to graduate with that honor, while it still has any cache.
Also, unless something is done to stop these schools from offering such obviously politically biased indoctrination courses, there will be little we can do when these young brainwashed graduates get into leadership positions.
We are reaping the whirlwind from the 1960’s leftist-Marxist gale blown into the US culture now….. Tragic and dangerous, what is happening on college campuses today.
*Correction: young WOMAN. and SHE not he.
My apologies. I didn’t realize this was a female student.
“a new course at my Ivy League institution that deeply criticized Donald Trump while venerating Barack Obama.”
“When you have a professor telling you what is right and what is incorrect …” you have yet another “scholar” who has ceased to seek truth, for, why would do so if you’re already convinced that you already possess it and merely need to work on implementation?
Although if one were to purge all college courses that skip that tedious process of posing questions and searching for evidence and just move immediately to the approved (political) conclusions, then college catalogs would be a whole lot shorter.
