TheUnapologeticPatriot: Outnumbered- A Guide to Surviving in Liberal Academia

I.) Introduction  

    So I assume if you’re reading this article you fit into one of two demographics. First, you may be just now finishing up in high school and are just about ready to take that leap of faith into the world of academia. If that is you then congratulations! You’re about to enter the world of student debt and liberal

indoctrination. Have no fear for that is why I’m writing this article. Second, you may already be in the world of academia but are looking for ways to help get yourself through the trying times that await you. Well strap in, because I am going to tell you how any right-leaning individual can make it through the liberal cesspool that is academia.

 

#1.) The Decision

    It is easy, especially in today’s society, to want to retreat into our respective echo-chambers. In these echo-chambers there is no one to challenge your views and everyone feeds off of conformation bias. This, ladies and gentlemen, is how safe space and Cry-bully campus cultures arise. Isolation of ideas is the biggest contributor to the political divide we see in America today. Why do I mention all of this? Well it is because I don’t want us as libertarians and conservatives to fall into the same trap that progressives did long ago. I don’t want us making our school choices based off of politics. By all means, if you want to choose Liberty University over any other school due to their Christian values then go ahead, that is your choice to make. However with that being said I do not want us to reject certain schools because they’re “too liberal”. How do you think those liberal schools got that way? Conservatives and libertarians alike refuse to go to liberal universities because they’re afraid they’ll be outnumbered. This is exactly what the left wants. They want us to stay away from their echo-chambers so that they can continue their endless progressive circle-jerk. My advice is simple. Break the cycle. Get in there and challenge them because that is the only way we can hope to make a change on campuses around the country.  

 

#2.) Choosing Wisely

    So, you’ve made your decision on what school you want to attend, Great! Now comes yet another challenge that you’ll be faced with nearly every year in college, choosing your professors. I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking that every single professor in academia is a liberal loon who will shut down any and all dissenting opinions. That is simply not true. While the liberal professors far outweigh all the centrist and right-leaning professors, it’s not as bad as a lot of outlets will have you believe. Nonetheless you’ll need to choose your professors before the start of every semester and there’s an amazing tool out there that you can use to weed out potential loons. That tool is www.ratemyprofessor.com. On this website you can type in the name of any and nearly all of your professors and student-written reviews of said professors will show up. I have used this many of times to determine whether or not my history and political theory professors would be liberal loons or not.

 

#3.) The Necessary Evils

 

    So you’ve chosen your classes and just couldn’t avoid that liberal loon that teaches sociology because it was the only class that had a vacancy. Well darn. Trust me, I’ve had my fair share of that happening as well. Now this could go a few ways, the first being that the professor is indeed a liberal but yet they’re not a lunatic. What do I mean by lunatic? I mean someone who uses their authority in a classroom to silence and discourage dissenting opinions from their own. Trust me when I say that you have not experiences real rage until you’ve had a feminist world history professor that wants everyone to believe that the women that ruled in European countries were more important than any man. Getting off my soapbox, the second way that it could go down is that you get a complete lunatic as your instructor and that is evident from Day 1. So what do you do? Well first off, take everything they tell you with a grain of salt and do your own research. Next, if you know that challenging this professor will lead to you failing the class then you have a few options. You could possibly ask for a class change but if that doesn’t work out then you’ll have to perform some necessary evils. Those necessary evils entail you putting your own opinions to the side in favor of your GPA. Some professors may ask you to write about certain sensitive topics and if you write something that they don’t agree with or goes against their own world view, you’ll fail that assignment. Trust me when I say that some of the essays I had to write in my world history class look like they were written by Bernie Sanders himself. I received an A on nearly all of those essays so one day I decided to test my theory. I wrote a 3-4 page rebuttal to modern day feminism, I received an F. So if you care about your GPA, it’s best not to challenge some of these lunatics. However if you want to make a fool out of these professors then by all means go for it.  

 

#4.) Always Be Prepared

    Being prepared is a motto that we should all live by, and if you are or ever have been a Boy Scout, you know what it means to be prepared. But other than your classes of course, what else should you be prepared for while in college? I’ll give you a hint, here’s what a leftist sounds like while do it: “RACIST, SEXIST, HOMOPHOBIC BIGOT!!!” That’s right! You should always be prepared for a debate as a right-leaning person on college campuses. You never know when a leftist will approach you and scream at you for that Pro-Trump shirt you’re wearing or that Pro-2nd Amendment bumper sticker you have on your car. You always need to be prepared for the worst. That is why I encourage everyone to brush up on their research and facts about the issues leftist love to “debate” about. I also encourage everyone to read Ben Shapiro’s “How to Debate Leftists and Destroy Them: 11 Rules for Winning the Argument”. You can get it for literally $1 off of Amazon and it’s only available to read through the Kindle or Kindle App. If there’s one person you should be taking debate advice from, it’s Ben Shapiro.

 

#5.) Become Active on Campus

    The worse thing that you can do as a right-wing college student is nothing. By doing nothing you only allow the liberal indoctrination that occurs on college campuses to continue. There are many ways a right-winger can be active on campus. There is a plethora of clubs and organizations to choose from. Your best bet is your school’s College Republicans chapter. Personally, I left my college’s CR organization because during the 2016 election they became adamantly Anti-Trump and almost Pro-Hillary. The best organization I found was Turning Point USA. Turning Point is more of a libertarian-esque organization. They are all about limited government and the promotion of free speech on campuses. It is ultimately up to you to decide which organization suits your needs and wants.

 

#6.) Final Thoughts

    It is your duty not only as a conservative but as an American to stand firm in your beliefs and to not let any liberal professor try and take those away from you. Now for a few unpolitical things. First, if you can avoid it, DO NOT BUY TEXTBOOKS (Especially from the School’s Bookstore). The biggest scheme I have ever witnessed (other than the American tax system) is the college textbook business. For example, my English class this past semester required a certain textbook. I went to the bookstore and they said that they were “non-rentable” and must be bought. So naturally, I bought it. Fast-forward to just this morning when I went to one of the book buyback stations in an attempt to get at least some of my money back. I haven’t even cracked the book open all semester but yet it was “non-buyable”. I’m one of the most pro-capitalism people you’ll ever know but I know a scam when I see it. Finally, for the love of God if you’re going to be living in a dorm with communal bathrooms, FLUSH THE DAMN TOILET. Every day I walk into the bathroom and am met with someone else’s piss in the toilet that I have to flush. We aren’t your damn maids and if you’re worried about getting germs on your hands, USE YOUR FEET. It takes all but 2 seconds. Anyways, that’s enough of my ranting. I hope you guys found this article useful and wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
