It seems like some are a little late to the party. The term Liberal college professors is an oxymoron just like jumbo shrimp. What do you think it was like during the 1960's when they encouraged draft dodging or changing the new world order? College campuses have been very politically intolerant for generations if you are a Republican or conservative. Look at the faculty at MSU or any school and they have filled young people's ideas up with a liberal bent and it did not start with the rant of Evan Schrage in an MSU classroom. The major difference is the cellphone can record any conversation and be the equalizer for any professor that gives his/her opinion as fact. Anyone that has graduated from college knows about the liberal bent from reading the campus newspapers, listened to lectures going to debauchery parties and so on. I am not advocating being a conservative or liberal ( I think both parties are full of crap) and only care about themselves and the people that grease them, so my bent is not the article below will give you specific journalistic facts.
Student who recorded MSU professor's bash on Republicans comes forward
Evan Schrage's video of professor William Penn has gone viral
The Michigan State University student who recorded his professor telling the class that Republicans have "raped this country" has come forward.
Evan Schrage's video of professor William Penn has gone viral.
Penn told a creative writing class that Republicans are cheap. He said they don't want to pay taxes "because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could."
He also said, "I am a college professor. If I find out you are a closet racist I am coming after you. Okay. This country is full of closet racists. What do you think is going on in South Carolina and North Carolina? Voter suppression. It is about getting black people not to vote. Why? Because black people tend to vote Democratic. So, why would Republicans want to do it? Because Republicans are not a majority of this country anymore. They are a bunch of dead white people. Or dying white people."
The video was first posted online by Campus Reform, a Virginia-based conservative group.

On his Facebook page, Schrage posted, "I want to end indoctrination across the board, students should not be forced to sit through a lecture that has nothing to do with the course topic."
The university has since suspended Penn.
Some students Local 4 spoke with said they were disappointed he won’t be teaching.
"He's trying to teach us to be our own individuals, and express our views and stop following the crowd," said Hunter Walton.
But MSU student Amanda Bonner said Penn’s comments were “unnecessary and completely over the top.”
Greg Scholtz, of the American Association of University Professors, says academic freedom is important to educational quality.
Penn has taught at MSU for 26 years, earning several awards for his writing and teaching.
"I love this university and always have liked my students," Penn told Local 4.
Asked if he liked them regardless of their political views, he answered, "Absolutely."
