Prof Suggests the Problem With Academia is That it Simply Has Too Many Conservatives

“They run the university. They sit in admin & on university boards enforcing manufactured austerity”

This is laughably false. Conservatives are a tiny minority in higher education. Conservatives are not even welcome on many college campuses.

Campus Reform reports:

Prof: ‘The problem with academia today is that it has too many conservatives’

On Sunday, Assistant History Professor at the University of Massachusetts Asheesh Kapur Siddique, sent out a tweet claiming that colleges have “too many conservatives” on campus.

“The problem with academia today is that it has too many conservatives. They run the university. They sit in admin & on university boards enforcing manufactured austerity, combating unionization, & casualizing most of the professoriate,” Siddique wrote on Twitter.

Campus Reform contacted Siddique about this claim. When presented with a study published by the National Association of Scholars showing that college professors donate to Democrats ninety-five times more than to Republicans, Siddique insisted this was not relevant.

“Partisan political affiliation has nothing to do with the teaching or research work that goes on in universities,” Siddique said in response to the study.

After Campus Reform inquired to Siddique about Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project being taught in college courses, he responded by urging people to, “Look at any business school or econ department, where free market / small government orthodoxy reigns.”

Siddique then referenced a 2018 article from The New Republic that criticizes American MBA programs for teaching American economics, referring to them as, “Ideological institutions committed to a strict blend of social liberalism and economic conservatism.”

Comments

This is one of the consequences of the decline of academic rigor that allowed a proliferation of “Studies” degrees and gave employment to thousands of dishonest imbeciles like Prof.essor Siddique

“Too many conservatives” = “We found one, and that’s one too many.”

Actually, I think he’s conflating conservatives with the establishment Democrats — white people! — holding many of the positions he talked about.

I guess that’s how things look from the far left end of the spectrum.

Also, the problem with Arkham Asylum is that it has too many wardens.

If by “too many,” the professor means “ not nearly enough.“
