"DEAR RONBO: PLEASE HELP ME! ALL MY PROFESSORS ARE COMMUNISTS!"


RONBO: THE LATTER DAY PATTON

Dear Student: Withdraw from all your classes immediately! Then turn your AM radio dial to Rush Limbaugh at 9 a.m. Pacific Coast time and the let the Doctor Of Democracy give you a free education on truth, justice and the American Way!

 

EUGENE, ORE. – When I began examining the political affiliation of faculty at the University of Oregon, the lone conservative professor I spoke with cautioned that I would “make a lot of people unhappy.”

 

Though I mostly brushed off his warning – assuming that academia would be interested in such discourse – I was careful to frame my research for a column for the school newspaper diplomatically.

 

The University of Oregon (UO), where I study journalism, invested millions annually in a diversity program that explicitly included “political affiliation” as a component. Yet, out of the 111 registered Oregon voters in the departments of journalism, law, political science, economics, and sociology, there were only two registered Republicans.
