The Left At Christian Universities, Part 6: You can’t post that HERE!

If you missed it or want to read it again, Part 5 of this series is here.

At Pepperdine, students aren’t allowed to post signs announcing meetings that might be critical of Obama. And they have a “Director of Intercultural Affairs” to enforce the rule on 18 yr old freshman Republicans, too. After describing the de facto censorship of the the College Republicans at Pepperdine, Mike Adams delivers this assessment of one of the players:

Any university that decides to hire a Director of Intercultural Affairs is a university that will soon find itself in rapid decline. Put simply, it is a decision that the university is beginning to take seriously the notion of multi-culturalism. The advancement of multiculturalism, by the way, promotes tolerance of all ideas. Of course, the idea that there is something special about Western civilization in general or American culture in particular is an exception to the rule.

Ironically, those who work as Directors of Intercultural Affairs are all cut from the same cloth. They are Democrats, self-described liberals, and, in 2008, they voted for Barack Obama. In other words, they aren’t a very diverse bunch of people.The multiculturalists also envision a world without borders. They want open-ended immigration. And they think it’s really neat that U.S. Supreme Court justices are starting to interpret our constitution by relying on the laws of other nations and the so-called “international community.”

I’ve discussed all this before.  The main point:  “diversity” is not politically neutral.  It always favors the Left, in a fairly radical way.  Calling for more “diversity” on campus is equivalent to saying, “Let’s all move Left.”  I wish it wasn’t that simple.  But it is.

Challenge question:  does anyone know of a professional college/university diversity/intercultural worker who is Republican, and votes that way?  Who has a history of supporting center-Right perspectives on many issues?  If you can find one, can you find two?

UPDATE:  Part 7 of this series is here.

    Isn’t there some sort of competition going on to see which Christian university can become the most liberal the fastest? I think there is a big prize for the winner. I wonder what it is?
