It should be clear to any conservative, and especially to any conservative on a prominent American academic campus—that many on the left have turned angry.
David Gelernter, a Jewish professor at Yale University says, “In many ways, the left has turned incredibly anti-democratic. It not only holds to its leftist positions, it wants to shut down any public debate.”
The question is why? Professor Gelernter has an answer.
Political, moral, and cultural conservatives, tend to identify as Christians or as Jews in America. The political left, on the other hand, is decidedly more secular.
If politics is all you have, then politics becomes your religion. Increasingly on the left, political ideas have taken the place of religious doctrines. They are simply not to be debated. Dissent is not to be tolerated, and discussion is shut down.
That’s what we’re seeing on America’s college and university campuses today, and it’s spreading from college campuses into other sectors of political and cultural life.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/243126894″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
