I worry for the sanity of Dr Adams. What normal person would intentionally surround himself by students and faculty who hate his guts. And then take it one steps further by constantly poking them in the eye. He sounds like a drama queen in the extreme. I wonder if he has arrange his personal life to be as conflict-laden as his professional life.
I would issue a challenge to Dr. Adams. Go to a variety of conservative websites and pose as a liberal. Advocate boiler-plate liberal positions on the site. See if anyone exhibits the 6 points you have described above. Do you experience any hatred, any name calling, extreme rudeness? This may open your eyes. This behavior is not liberal or conservative, it is just human.
