Common sense and free expression are being shut down on more campuses and replaced by intimidation tactics and mob rule.

Discussing how the Paris attacks have not diminished left-wing campus demonstrations, Dr. Stanley Kurtz, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, said President Obama and the dominant, politically-correct college worldview is “trying to deny that anything fundamental has happened” during that massacre.

In this video interview for The Daily Caller News Foundation, the author and scholar explained the multi-cultural and post-modern worldview dominant on college campuses “cannot absorb that some cultures may actually pose a threat,” such as radical Islam, and our in fact waging war on western civilization.

Some campus activists today are being mobilized by radical Left organizations and allies of President Obama, as exposed by a recent report by the National Association of Scholars. As The Federalist’s Joy Pullman recently wrote about the campus madness, these groups “are stoking and channeling uninformed young people’s hatred of free markets and agitating them into demanding collectivism.”

Kurtz said we “have lost the campuses” in America’s culture war. Where the Left used to dominate only 10-20 percent of campus departments, today entire colleges have morphed into “ideological training camps.” He went on to say that colleges have become a new form of “divinity school,” but this time it is for the “secular, leftist political religion.” For many young people, according to Kurtz, belief in the leftist worldview is like a religion, and these grievance movements “give meaning to their lives.”

There are students, he explained, who actually believe “they may die from global warming.”

A recent Vanderbilt mob, angry about what came-to-be-realized was a blind girl’s guide dog’s poop bag inadvertently left in the wrong place, demonstrates how unhinged and yet explosive these perceived sleights have become.
