This made me return to that question. I’ve never been sent to a seminar that told me I would be punished for participating in “hate groups” as labeled by the SPLC.
It was once true that universities were more belligerently Leftist than the rest of the country, but that is no longer really true. Universities haven’t moved rightward, but the rest of society has moved far to the Left. Now a university is one of the best places for a conservative to be, just because that’s where the old books are.
The one bright side of this is that it may rectify a distortion of the organized Right that I noted here:
A key difference between liberalism and conservatism:
Left intellectuals are expected to be more extreme than liberal voters.
Right intellectuals are expected to be more moderate than conservative voters.
