The professors at most major universities have been hard core leftists from the 60s or their chosen proteges since the early 70s at the latest. We had numerous leftists even back when I was in college. The best comment that I heard from one professor said it all. My Political Thought II professor said "I used to be a communist, until I learned it just doesn't work." I have no idea why parents insist on universities stop indoctrinating their kids by forcing them to take "Social justice" and other indoctrination courses for graduation. There is no "justice" in taking from those who produce wealth to give it to those who don't.
