Indoctrinate U

Amazing movie about "speech codes" on American University campuses and the reality of the liberal dominated environment of college campuses today and the suppression of conservative thought. Too too scary! Just saw this with my cousin.

Not sure I get it. What kind of thought is being supressed? What do the people want to say that they feel they can't say? The clip didn't seem to give much indication.

There were complaints about diversity. Are the young people who were complaining seeking uniformity? Are they longing for a school that has only people who look, speak and think just as they do?

Guess I'm missing something.

Lea, you have to see the film. I know you were in a University. The film is disturbing. It's about attempts to keep people from posting fliers that spout conservative ideas.

For example, the black gentleman who talked about wondering why people shouldn't be able to be offended, he wrote a book that's about blacks not getting overly sensitive about racial issues.

Someone wanted to advertise the book and got in trouble for doing so.

What they were talking about is that Universities say they want diversity in having diverse nationalities, etc., but they don't really want diversity in thought, and are against thought that doesnt conform to their thinking.

The young people are complaining about a lack of diversity in thought. Liberal thought is being defended in a Fascist manner on college campuses.

The trailer is meant to entice you to see the film, but should be more explicit, perhaps.

I haven't seen the movie, so can't comment. Haven't read the book that wasn't allowed to be advertised so I can't comment on that either.

The book 'wasn't allowed to be advertised.' Hmmm....sounds suspicious!
