Why the far right hates intellectuals and academia? Do they understand that if it wasn't for intellectuals and people of academia, computers and the internet would never existed?. Does the far right even understand the irony of anti-intellectual stance in the XXI century while being surrounded by all this great technology that wasn't around 50 years ago?

Oh look, another troll post from a liberal smearing the boogeyman "far right."

I guess I don't blame them for not talking about their failed leaders, policies, and ideology.

Conservatives or the so called right wing,do not hate intellectuals and academia! What most people expect from higher education is just that . Teach math, science and history. make our youth extend there thinking outside the box some greater than you.

The resentment comes from Professors rewriting history and in-doctorating our child to be something beyond what is taught. The perceptions in these high end Universities not of this world and professor's punish those who have a different view in Political Science course.

Its been proven on tape and testimony by parents and students alike.

Our best and brightest got men to the moon and we have supersonic flight now.
