    College campuses have become a joke of group think.

      and of "safe places". Last summer I was walking on the UM campus, and entered a restroom in the pharmacy building. There was a huge sign there providing an "800" number on campus for any student who was the victim of "harassment or bullying". this is what college has become, an artificial haven from the real world.

        The PC stuff on campus seemed to start right when I graduated from college in 2009.

        There is amazing peer pressure on women to get behind these causes and the women leading most of it are the biggest bullies. I know from experience how they tried to intimidate me, call me names and politically shame me because I am not liberal. Some of my friends would go along with them so they didn't get picked on and stuff. I was raised by my parents to lead not follow so I refused to let them force an agenda on me. It wasn't for lack of trying, they never back down.

        As a woman graduate it is very embarrassing to me that the face of the liberal women on campus are people like Davies and others. They want confrontation and attention, nothing more. People need to remember there are a lot of students that are not like them and do not need safe spaces because our parents raised us to be independent and gave us the skills to deal with adversity in the real world. Please don't lump all young people with political cancers like the people at these rallies. Some of us are good hard working people and we do not deserve to be included in blanket statements about millennials.

          I am hoping that our new president, with his background, will make our school one in which the people of Montana outside of socialist Missoula will want to send their kids to!

            College serves a purpose. The purpose is to educate young people. Sure you hope to get a decent career started after attending otherwise why incur the debt. I loved my college years. The clash of political ideals was part of college life in my era too and I’d imagine it has been for a few generations. That’s part of the charm. I wouldn’t get to worried about the political leanings of any college campus. If you are a die hard liberal/conservative, then choose a school that matches your beliefs. Otherwise just recognize the political diversity for what it it which is a microcosm of our society.....

              Private colleges can have a political slant, public universities should be balanced and Montana for sure needs to fire a bunch of people that lean left. They should get no funding until they get some checks and balances in place.

                It is not diversity when left-wined loonies can prevent a conservative speaker from giving his/her views just because it doesn't fit their narrative...... The University of Montana does not currently teach diversity of opinion...... only political correctness. They even fund departments and faculty whose descriptions are socialistic in nature.

                  Here is a list of worthless socialist majors currently offered at UM, taken from their web site: African American Studies, Cultural & Ethnic Diversity, Cultural Heritage, Diversity Education, Critical Social Issues, Ecocriticsm English, Literature & The Environment, Inequality & Social Justice, Women's Gender Studies.

                  All are totally worthless degree fields, and a waste of tuition money. None prepare a student to tackle the real world following their leaving the pseudo universe that college has now become.

                    I saw a very illuminating and informative exchange between uber leftist Charlie Rose and Dr. Thomas Sowell on the subject of quotas on entrance to public universities.

                    Charlie Rose said entrance quotas were a wonderful thing since they ensure "DE-VIR-SI-TEE" slowly enunciating each syllable with the smug satisfaction of someone climaxing all over himself.

                    Dr. Thomas Sowell responded with this: " so a college entrance quota results in admitting the child of a white brain surgeon and the child of a black brain surgeon and that supposedly results in diversity?"

                    Charlie Rose's face suddenly looked very contorted and uncomfortable, like someone who had just soiled his underwear, because you knew what he was thinking, but could not say.

                    He stuttered and stammered his way through a feeble response, but Sowell let him go, when I wanted him to press the issue.

                    Patronage is just another flavor of bigotry.
