It is not the conservatives fault. College and Universities don't hire conservative professors, especially in the social sciences so young folks do not get a balanced point of view, rather they get a leftist point of view on current events, history, sociology, etc. The history being taught is now "revisionist" history.

You are basically saying "republicans are bad too but not as bad" as a way to ignore the problems in the democrat party.

The poll was of democrats state wide, not of democrats in Berkeley.



It is like you are afraid to say "democrats are wrong about this"
I'm not afraid to say anything - and again, I am not even a Democrat. So why would I care? I was only addressing your specific points, and saying that isolated incidents don't define a whole party.

TBH, I haven't even read the original link yet.

I also hate far right and far left.

The problem is the percentage of people who comprise the "far right" is probably less than 1% (based on membership numbers from stormfront, KKK, etc) of the entire right. The membership of the "far left" is enormous now. BLM says it has a membership between all of its chapters of over 3 million individuals. ANTIFA might even be higher (no estimates for that yet).

So while the far right has remained a fringe group since the 1970s, the far left has grown in size and political power in 2017, with millions of members.

Part of it is that Conservative college students went for classes to make money not be teachers or professors, Not all but wayyy too many. The Liberals cared more about their ideology and saw a way to make it dominate.

You won't hear that on the news.

I agree with you on the cabal. But there's actually a cabal on a much higher level than the one you cited. But that's a whole other post.

A former KGB agent talked about this over 30 years ago:
