You know who else is not an expert on sociology? Sociologists. The professors in that field are the most universally liberal of any in academia, which is saying an incredible amount. The ratio of lefties to righties is around 12 to 1. ~40% of professors surveyed (in general.. the number is surely higher within sociology) *Admit* that they would discriminate against a conservative in the hiring process. The left doesn't trust Fox news, since most at the station are conservative. Understandable. They sure are quick to automatically dismiss any study of social issues that ends up corroborating a conservative view (particularly since homosexuality was removed from the APA's list for entirely political reasons in the early 70s).

..shut down at the peer review level. If you know the truth about sociology and psychology departments in the western world, the lopsided politics of the members, and their fierce loyalty to those causes, you'd realize this: No matter which side is more true, the conservative or the liberal perspective of human nature. The field as it stands now *can only display a liberal slant*. When the liberals are more right on an issue, they're trumpeting those truths. When the conservatives are more right, they're covering it up or twisting the data.

So why should anyone trust a field that is made up of well over 90% liberals, who admit to hiring discrimination, and who control all the peer-reviewed journals and thus basically everything that becomes published as "social science"? No matter how neutral they try to be, if all of them are liberal, and they know that they can sway public opinion by fitting any data they find to their own narratives, can you honestly say that this collective would ever choose to publish against their own interests? Even if one or a dozen social psychologists is so absurdly ethical that he/she would publish findings completely against his/her ideology (doubly unlikely since bias also seeps into data interpretation), you can guarantee it would be..
The worst part about censorship is that there are college professors who are too stupid to know what it actually means, or worse, that sometimes pretend to be too stupid to know what it actually means. Censorship occurs when the government stops objectionable speech from being disseminated. It does not occur when the government refuses to actually subsidize speech that may be deemed objectionable. But sometimes professors and low-level college administrators pretend that refusal to fund government speech is censorship. They usually do this when the speech is so bad that no one else would ever subsidize it. So they adopt...
