    By paying attention to the left snowflake explosion of the past 30 years, leading to the Brownshirt tactics of the current college left, who resort to violence ( when they have superior numbers) to prevent any opposing views from even being heard, ,etc., ad nauseum.
    Complaint after complaint from non-liberal students about being punished, etc. by their leftist indoctrinators....NO ONE is allowed to veer from the Progressive Agenda.

    Where you been?

    I went to college 4 years and have a year of grad school under my belt at one of your so called liberal institutions. Never once did I see anyone or hear of anyone ridiculed from having a differing opinion than a professor or Democratic ideas. Does it happen? I'm sure it does, but thinking it is so widespread that it is a conspiracy? Not hardly. Your post reads like it was written by a snowflake. Watch out! The boogeyman is gonna get you. Better find your safe space.

    firmly rooted in reality. I am familiar with the far left nonsense. I find some of it as absurd as the crap coming out of the white nationalist crowd. Both hold minority positions but these days they have the power of the social media megaphone to scream bloody murder.

    I think it goes with the need to pretend there are no facts, no experts. I used to wonder why it was so common for such regimes to kill the intelligentsia but when I discovered that one of the foundations of fascism was to deny the existence of facts and replace them with myths and a false sense of unity, I understood.

    Oh I know. Our culture unfortunately puts too much stake in people throwing and catching balls. The ones who don't end up making it in pro sports, will likely regret the education they need to fall back on.

    While I've "heard" some "schools" deny the dinosaurs existed, and reject evolution, it certainy isn't the norm. I attended catholic schools, and had a nun as a science teacher. She reconciled creation, and the big bang theory very simply by stating god was responsible for the event. The dinosaurs were merely earlier works set aside by god. Obviously there's evidence to the contrary, but faith by it's own definition requires a certain transcendent belief. I received all the college prerequisite science skills for admission despite the parochial (disadvantage?) setting.

    Catholic church as accepted evolution theory for decades. the Big bang theory was first proposed by a vatican astronomer.

    If someone felt "disadvantaged" by the catholic science curriculum it was the teacher, not the subject matter.

    Maybe... just maybe it's because I'm not a racist xenophobic self-righteous intolerant dick who thinks society should raise me on a pedestal just for being a white male.

    I think you now might be getting it. You see there are many people who are bigoted against bigots.

    I am most definitely bigoted against racists of all colors, religious fanatics of all faiths, commies, jew haters, neo nazis. Which is why when I encounter such people I serve their hatred right back at them. My bigotries are focused on only on human ideologies and hatreds (with the exception of pedophiles).

    there are all kinds of bigots in the world and I am comfortable and proud in admitting I am a particular kind of bigot since the objects of my bigotries are all bigots themselves.

    That or many of those you assume are "bigots" just have different view points which you can not handle.. What do you? You label them "bigots" and then feel justified in all the hate you spew.

    Wake up.

    I make assessments based on the content of other people's posts - you know their opinions and perspectives. I can and do handle all kinds of different points of view, I am humble enough to admit when I am wrong and have even been know to change my opinion based on acquisition of additional knowledge and alternative perspectives , I am always open to learning things I don't know, and am equally facile in utilizing all those things I do know.

    I assure you I am WIDE awake.
