'Indoctrinate U' Film Alleges Repressive Climate on Campuses

"Watch out, Michael Moore and Al Gore. A young filmmaker is preparing to release a full-length documentary that will 'tell the story of how, in the name of education, schools from coast to coast ruthlessly compel conformity of thought.'

'When we think of college, we think of intellectual freedom. We imagine four years of exploring ideas through vigorous debate and critical thinking,' filmmaker Evan Coyne Maloney told Cybercast News Service Friday regarding his upcoming movie, 'Indoctrinate U.'

'But the reality is very far from the ideal,' he said. 'What most of us don't know is that American college students surrender their rights to free thought and free speech the minute they set foot on campus.'

Maloney spent two and a half years investigating what he called 'jaw-dropping incidents of political persecution' directed at students and professors at more than 20 schools across the country, ranging from elite Ivy League campuses to the largest state universities and the smallest community colleges."

  • Yeah but you don't understand. You see, unlike any and all past instances of the suppression of free thought and speech by bad people, the Left are the good guys. They are, you will excuse the expression, 'right', or as they would now have it, (in order to avoid any confusion), 'correct'. Only a right wing Neanderthal could fail to see that. Would you have elementary teachers teaching your children that two and two is three? Of course not! That’s not correct. They are righteous and caring and open minded and compassionate and just want to make the world a better place. Others may agree with what you say but the Left will fight to the death their right, nay obligation, to prevent you from saying it.

  • Ohhhhh .... anotmo .... you hopeless cynic.

    One question I have is "when is the last time we have seen a group on the right shut down discourse or free speech by shouting down invited speakers, taking over a stage, and creating bedlam, or the throwing of pies in the face of those on the left?"

    It just doesn't happen.
