POLL: Nearly 3/4 Republican College Students Afraid To Share Political Views


While leftists are busy complaining about how oppressed their are by the Trump regime, let’s take a look at the real persecution going on of conservatives, especially young people with right-leaning views who are being subjected to brainwashing from their teachers under the guise of education.

Because of this, a poll of Republican college students has found that 73% of them are afraid to share their true political beliefs in fear of backlash or suffering through their grades by liberal professors.

That’s 3 out of every 4 conservative college students keeping quiet because they don’t want to be outed and discriminated against on campus.

Take a look at the polls findings that are causing a stir on Twitter:


Here's more on the poll's results from Townhall:

We know from Young America's Foundation that Generation Z is very confused about socialism, capitalism, and the American way of life. We also learned from YAF that America's college and high school students across the political spectrum have held back their real opinions out of fear they would offend a friend. But, a new poll shows that Republican students in particular are afraid to discuss their actual beliefs out of fear that they will suffer the consequences grade wise for thinking differently from their teacher.

As reported by the College Fix, nearly three-quarters of Republican and Republican-leaning college students fear backlash in the classroom for their anti-Democrat stances:

The question asked: “Have you ever withheld your political views in class for fear that your grades would suffer?” Seventy-three percent of students who identity as “strong Republican” reported that they had, while 71 percent of students who identify as “weak Republican” said yes.

As part of the survey, students on college campuses all across the country included anecdotes and concerns they had about sharing their true conservative political affiliation in the classroom.

What they said is just crazy.

Read some here for yourself, from College Fix:

In the comments section of the survey, where students have the option to weigh in on the topic after they’ve answered, several offered various anecdotes. Among them:

• CU Boulder: “You should be inclusive of everyone’s views.” “Ok maybe abortion is bad?” “No not like that.”

• Western Kentucky University: I wrote a 19 page research paper on a Christian pro-life movement. I was the only one in the class that, when presenting my paper, had a “surprise visitor” (who was the teacher’s very liberal friend) argue [with] me about their views. …

• Notre Dame: I actually got yelled at by a professor for my views on gun control. It wasn’t an argument or anything, just plain one-sided insulting.

• Clemson: When writing papers for gen ed classes? Absolutely. I know a guy who chose to write a pro-border wall argumentative essay for our super liberal professor and the prof just wrote “this whole paper is one big fallacy” and bombed him. Me? I wrote about the evils of horse racing. Perfectly safe topic.

• UCSD: Not for fear of a bad grade. But fear of being a social outcast.

• Penn State: “Well I actually have some different thoughts on that.” “Shut up you racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic piece of human garbage!”

• UMass Amherst: Weird how being forced to hide my libertarian views in class for years just sorta drove me underground and now I’m a hyper-authoritarian. Funny how that works.

• NC State: Why would I get myself killed to say I’m a libertarian in a philosophy class.

• Auburn: I have had grades affected when I didn’t withhold my views.

• University of Louisville: I am conservative. I would be crucified. I heard enough horror stories from friends and family to keep my mouth shut and avoid politics in class if at all possible.

• Kansas State: Professor the day after the presidential election kicked two students wearing MAGA hats out of class. I was appalled. We’re all people, if someone disagrees with you — love them anyways.

• Mizzou: I’m a conservative, but my essays are very liberal.

• Arizona State: In my sociology class, my professor asked us if we would give our child hormone blockers if they believed they were transgender (that was the day’s lesson). One guy said he would rather teach his daughter to love her body the way it is than change it. She [sat] straight up said “so you would be a bad parent then? What was your name again?” Then she went to type something on her computer. Not a good day for him, I’m sure.

• Oklahoma State: Suuuuper liberal government teacher who only showed Robert Reich documentaries. Wasn’t gonna speak my opinion around there.

• Alabama: Took a honors English class freshman year and I didn’t know the topic of the class until it started…feminism and sexuality in pop culture. If I had shared any of my opinions with that psychotic uber-liberal communist professor I guarantee she would have failed me.

Asked to weigh in on the survey results, American University senior Alec Schemmel told The College Fix he is not surprised by them.

“I deal with it every day, I see it every day,” said Schemmel, 25, a journalism and political science major. (He did not take the poll).

This is not education.

This is truly a propaganda institution.

Yet, liberals will continue to tell you that they're the ones being discriminated against and that Trump is the dictator.
