A recent survey of 1,000 conservative college students who identify as strong Republicans has shown that a stunning 73 percent of students polled feel pressured to withhold their views during class for fear of retribution from rapidly leftist teachers.
The poll was conducted by College Pulse at the behest of The College Fix in August. They asked the following question: “Have you ever withheld your political views in class for fear that your grades would suffer?” 73 percent of individuals who identify as strong Republicans responded affirmatively, while 71 percent of individuals who identify as “weak” Republicans responded affirmatively as well.
Even Republican-leaning independents do not feel safe expressing themselves on campus, as 70 percent of them reported feeling the same pressures as diversity of thought is no longer respected at universities.
Some of the comments left by respondents about the discrimination they received for their views were shocking, as they show how the vicious leftist indoctrinators enforce thought control on campus through bullying and intimidation.
“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,” one student from Western Kentucky University wrote.
“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,” a Notre Dame student wrote.
“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,” another student from Clemson wrote.
“Why would I get myself killed to say I’m a libertarian in a philosophy class,” a student at N.C. State wrote about the liberal pressure at their university.
“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,” a University of Louisville student wrote.
“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,” wrote a student from Kansas State, outlining how a dress code is enforced only against conservative students.
“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 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,” an Arizona State University student wrote about the LGBT cult agenda pushed at their school.
Universities can also be unsafe for conservative students, as what was seen on the campus of UC-Berkeley when leftist students and faculty instituted bedlam in order to prevent provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking on campus in 2017. Cultural Marxism has taken hold on college campuses, and Western Civilization may not survive as a result of this terrifying development.
Does the Arizona Constitution Provide Means for Lawmakers to Crack Down on Big Tech Censorship?
Does the Arizona Constitution provide protections from Big Tech?
The Arizona Constitution provides stronger protections for freedom of speech than the First Amendment does, potentially providing legislative solutions to Big Tech censorship in the state at a moment where political censorship is more pervasive than ever.
Article 2 Section 6, Arizona Constitution states that “Every person may freely speak, write, and publish on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of that right. “
This differs greatly from the federal constitution in that it doesn’t limit the powers of a legislature to restrict freedom of speech. The US Constitution identifies “Congress” as the body it’s restricting from making a law abridging the freedom of speech.
The speech rights established by the Arizona Constitution are thus expressed positively; recognizing a right belonging to the people, as opposed to negating an infringement of said right.
Quite obviously, the Arizona Constitution was written in an 1910, an era in which the internet would’ve been just as inconceivable as it was in 1789.
In a 2019 Arizona Supreme Court case, the state’s highest court recognized in a 4-3 judgement that the Arizona Constitution provided greater protections than the federal constitution. The case recognized that violations of the First Amendment would represent de facto violations of the
It’s not outside the realm of possibility that the Arizona Attorney General, or state legislature, could hold Big Tech oligarchs to account for violating the Article 2 Section 6 rights of Arizona citizens- especially in a context the major platforms are collectively adjudicated to be acting as a trust in order to suppress competition and silence lawful speech.
Three Arizona legislators called upon Attorney General Mark Brnovich to begin an antitrust investigation into Big Tech oligarchs following the coordinated deplatforming operation against Parler, in which both Amazon and Apple colluded to restrict the free speech platform from the internet.
In an era where the overwhelming majority of free speech is communicated online, the censorious actions of Big Tech very plausibly represent an assault of the right of free expression guaranteed in the Arizona Constitution. Both chambers of Arizona’s legislature remain Republican, even as the state has become purple, and action against Big Tech censorship on the state level could become a real possibility in the coming years.
