If you or someone you know is attending college in 2017, pray for them.
Higher education is in shambles these days, as leftists have eroded the value of college degrees and made the entire experience a living hell for conservatives.
This is especially true for the liberal arts, which have been corrupted by social justice warriors that want to shove left-wing propaganda down your throats rather than teach you anything of value.
Universities have embraced radical leftism and continually given into student demands for “safe spaces” and greater “diversity” instead of focusing on actual education.
We even have black student organizations demanding separate dormitories, free tuition, and other reparations for the past sins of slavery.
But while many schools have been infected by this scourge, not every college has been taken over by the Left…thankfully.
As reported at the Independent Journal Review, the president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University (OWU) is fighting back, telling students who want “safe spaces” and other radical things to stay home, because college “is not a daycare.”
Dr. Everett Piper, president of OWU and author of the newly released book, “Not a Day Care: The Devastating Consequences of Abandoning Truth,” declared in an August interview with The Christian Post that universities “don’t have academic freedom any longer on our campuses.”
Instead, he said, colleges have been gripped by “ideological fascism.”
Piper was inspired to write his timely book after a statement he made back in 2015 went viral. In it, he called out the radical Left’s assault on campus free speech saying:
“Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic. Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims.”
This is not a day care. This is a university.”
Piper wrote the memo in response to a crybaby student who complained about one of the weekly sermons the university held.
The student claimed he felt “victimized” after hearing the sermon on 1 Corinthians 13, a section of the Bible often referred to as the “love chapter.”
It talks about showing love and kindness to others, but the student said that he was offended over the contents, because it “made him feel bad for not showing love.”
Piper sees startling parallels to the current climate and Orwell’s 1984, which is an apt analogy.

“We’re policing pronouns right now not because we’re grading students on proper use of them — the historical, grammatical use of them — we’re penalizing students who do use them properly and rewarding students who don’t,” Piper said.
Piper’s book couldn’t have come at a better time, as students begin a new year at university.
It has never been more difficult to be a non-liberal on campus, but we cannot let the Left’s ideological fascism and threats deter us from standing by our beliefs.
They believe that the threats of bad grades, antagonistic classmates, or even expulsion are enough to silence us in the classroom.
But we cannot remain silent in these dire times; we must be fearless in the face of their oppression.
