UNSAFE SPACES: Why colleges are leaving so many students angry, indoctrinated, degraded, depressed and broke
Americans are understandably alarmed at the hordes of "migrants" and "refugees" streaming into this country, many steeped in worldviews profoundly opposed to Western, democratic values, and thus not only unlikely to assimilate, but even posing a danger to the nation.
But what about the hordes of young adults streaming into American society from this country's colleges, many of them likewise indoctrinated in a worldview utterly antithetical to bedrock American values and who are not only ignorant of, but contemptuous toward, this nation's unique system of individual liberty, Judeo-Christian morality and limited government?
Like the legions entering America from adversarial foreign cultures, many of these "new arrivals" from totalitarian campus cultures are also likely to come into serious conflict with a constitutional republic which, as John Adams said, was "fit only for a moral and religious people."
Today's news reports increasingly feature bizarre, unbelievable stories from America's colleges. For example, one recent viral video report documented almost 60 Yale students enthusiastically signing a petition to repeal the First Amendment – the one that guarantees their own right to freedom of speech, religion, the press, assembly, and, ironically, to petition!
Equally disturbing were reports that, as news broke of November's Friday the 13th Paris terror attacks that paralyzed the French capital and resulted in 130 gruesome murders and another 368 wounded, college activists in the U.S. bitterly complained that the media were focusing on Paris and terrorism – and no longer obsessing over them and their "grievances" (alleged racial incidents like the mysterious appearance of a "poop-swastika" on the wall of a University of Missouri dormitory bathroom).
Some characterize the growing campus madness as a "war on free speech" or "on the First Amendment," while others decry "political correctness run amok" and the phantom menace of "micro-aggressions" (harmless statements with no malintent, but nevertheless deemed aggressive attacks on "minority populations"). Still others focus on the wider political implications, i.e., the indoctrination of students to serve as "useful idiots" and "ground troops" for the radical left's ongoing transformation of America.
But these characterizations, while true enough, are incomplete and don't encompass the deeper reality of what is actually occurring on many of America's college campuses. The January-February 2016 issue of WND's acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled "UNSAFE SPACES: Why colleges are leaving so many students angry, indoctrinated, degraded, depressed and broke," assembles the pieces of the puzzle to reveal the true – and shocking – picture.

- "Campus storm troopers" by Thomas Sowell, on how to identify the most (and least) intolerant colleges and universities.
"Today," says Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian, "many of America's colleges are not merely ripping off the next generation's morality and virtue, not just intimidating and confusing them with crackpot gender-identity theories, not content with continually cranking out leftist radical clones – young adults indoctrinated in the angry, self-righteous but delusional worldview of the far left. No, they are now teaching these young Americans to take offense at the slightest wrong – or even at no wrong at all. For instance, being white is now an offense, under the guilt-trip label of 'white privilege.'
"In other words," Kupelian concludes, "many students are literally being taught to hate, to blame, to think pathologically, to see themselves as victims and to demonize and censor those who hold contrary views. In this way, they become essentially incapable of functioning competently and responsibly in the real world and, by default, join the 'permanent progressive voting majority' that has long been the Holy Grail of the far left."
