VICE providing compelling evidence that conservatives are dumb and liberals are smart by Finska_pojke in TumblrInAction

Well, many in the west resent and hate Eastern Europe (especially in the liberal elite) and do everything they can do deride and malign them, so it really isn't that surprising.

I don't really think you have any idea HOW bad Vice has gotten. I have a qucik story to relate on this topic... I have a friend who is an ex-pat living and working doing tourism and arranging touristic excursions in a Eastern European country (for the purposes of protecting identities I will keep things vague). Vice came to my friend with a proposal to make a 'documentary' about this country. The documentary would consist of a professional skateboarder (for some weird reason) travelling across the country getting into wacky situations which more or less pandered to the stereotypes and pre-conceived notions most people have related to this country (backwards villagers, thieving party-happy gypsies, corrupt government officials, etc etc). However, when Vice came to my friend with this proposal, they didn't just SAY these were the situations they wanted to have occur for the 'documentary'... Vice actually handed my friend a FULL script (including conversations and all) and asked him "Can you arrange for all of this stuff to happen for us?" My friend flat out refused, not only because he thought the whole thing was un-ethnical but because he wasn't interested in Vice attempting to perpetuate negative stereotypes about his adopted country with trash journalism. However, while he backed out of the arrangement, he was able to KEEP the script. He has been reticent to do anything with it so far, but I have been encouraging him to use this script to call out Vice for its corrupt journalistic practices. Hopefully he will follow through.

So, you're saying instead of focusing on parts of the world that have REAL problems (as far as race/ethnic/gender/sexual discrimination and oppression... speaking of Iran, they still execute gays afterall) you think it is more productive to nit-pick and circlejerk over every little foible and tiny indiscretion that occurs in the US? It is certainly a very privileged position you are in to be able to excuse away REAL persecution because, hey its some 'shit-hole' country, while contributing to global outrage about, let's say, some off hand comment an anonymous person made to some wealthy pampered British TV star. You really are fighting the good fight, aren't you! Never once would I ever say the US is perfect when it comes to tackling all divisive social issues, but fuck, this is a walk in the park when it comes to the VAST majority of the world... but it is easy to forget that when the media is telling you what you should be outraged about. And pro-tip, the media rarely, if ever, focuses on the injustices in the world that are actually impactful and/or important.

There is a literal campaign now by many in the news media, both domestic and abroad, to paint the US as the most racist place on earth... I don't know why exactly, but it is disturbing as hell, especially as someone who has lived around the world and can honestly say the US is about one of the LEAST racist places I have ever lived.

Food Network Host Claims ‘Straight White Male’ is ‘this Century’s N-Word’ and Unironically Compares Himself to Martin Luther King by coltsmetsfan614 in television

So, it is not necessary for moderate leftists to come out against extreme leftists who literally call for the genocide of white people? Wow, you really are a depraved individual. Also, nice work creating a strawman and literally inventing quotes that were never said. Just for reference, in case you ever think about trying to spread misinformation again, here is the context from the Atlantic of what you are referencing:

“I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups. But not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me,” he said.

“You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists,” Trump said. “The press has treated them absolutely unfairly.”

“You also had some very fine people on both sides,” he said.

...but hey, as people like you will lie and distort the truth in any capacity to push your narrative, I am not surprised.

It would help if the moderate left came out vocally and aggressively against such statements, whether they are made by troll accounts or actual extremist leftists. Unfortunately, they don't though... and that silence speaks volumes.

It must be exhausting having race and identity politics raging through your head 24/7. I guess it's beyond your understanding that something in the world might not be directly tied to skin color or ethnicity. I think you might have some hang-ups to deal with.

Everything you've said so far suggests you would struggle to graduate from high school.

Lol, the projecting is strong with this one! I don't doubt you've been to university, but clearly your critical thinking skills were never developed properly, else you would not be so stuck in your dogmatic style of thinking as you clearly are. Also, I am not fussed whatsoever if you believe my statements. Thankfully they don't require your belief in order to be true. While it may massage your ego and fragile worldview to pass off any contrary/divergent views as 'ignorant', it only speaks to your inability to view the world past the end of your nose. A big problem with people of your ideology today is the widely practiced endeavor of attempting to paint anyone with contrary/divergent views from your own as 'pathological', since such a magical declaration frees you from having to debate (which could obviously risk contaminating your precious political beliefs). No, its much more simple to engage in group-think and demonize the wrong-thinkers. Clearly you are out of the loop (or refuse to identify it), as such things are rampant on college campuses across the country. Conservative speakers can't even risk talking to students at many major liberal universities without threats of violence or attack. However, something tells me such FACTS will be completely new to your way of evaluating things... but in case you are lost, here is a link to a notable recent incident.

Also, it doesn't matter whether a significant amount of leftist professors are actually making such hateful and violent racist/bigoted statements against various ethnic/political groups. What matters is how they are treated and viewed when they occur, which has widely NOT been condemnation or denunciation by major leftist groups. NO, they are tolerated, if not celebrated, by professors, by leftists and by universities. Such disgusting actions (or inaction) says all that need be stated about university campuses who condone such divisive rhetoric. I trust you don't believe in such horrible actions, but when you and your peer groups do not vocally and vigorously condemn such statements (especially the extreme wing which largely drives leftist discourse today), you unwittingly stand among those who make such statements. When you don't police your most extreme members, they end up representing you whether you like it or not.

Lol, just when I didn't think someone could not have their head further-up their ass, you push it in just a little bit further! If you weren't such a steamingly repugnant individual, I might actually feel sorry for you. I mean, it is clear your ideology is driven by resentment, hate and bitterness, but do you really have to go so far out of your way to prove it with every sentence you utter? You really are the walking stereotype of the self-righetous leftist with a stick so far up their ass they'd choke on the bark.

Also, I like how you present an argument of two sides of a debate, then wholeheartedly assert that ONE of those theories is true without any evidence whatsoever other than your ragingly hateful bias. I can already tell you will be (if you aren't already) a very bad scientist. Also, as someone who works as a biologist for a federal agency, I can tell you wholeheartedly that the majority of news reports you see on the topic of 'science' (especially the natural sciences) are woefully inaccurate and misleading, but hey, when you have an ideology to push, I am sure you don't mind. If conservatives ran universities, they'd higher education wouldn't be filled with despicable professors praising the death of former first ladies or wishing for a genocide of white people. Those are your people and I am sure you're filled with pride over it.

I see you are more interested in projecting your bitter assumptions on to me rather than understanding that the politicization of education is a very real phenomenon. Maybe it makes you feel better to fall on a sword for your sacred inassailable cow, but trying to unquestionably defend a deeply flawed system will only lead to a lesser quality education for those in the future. Maybe you were lucky enough to avoid such issues sticking to chemistry, but it is selfish and extremely narrow-minded to assume that such an experience is par-for-the-course for all students these days. However, this discussion has proven useless long ago, as you refuse to address the evidence and points I have made in the first place and simply reduce yourself to name calling and petty accusations (not unlike most leftist ideologues I meet these days). That's the problem with your type, you're so full of yourself that you get to the point where you think even your shit smells sweet.

Wow, look at mister "swinging his dick around" with his two-bit degree. The only people I see on Reddit bragging about how smart they are and how many degrees they have are those who are the most desperately seeking validation and attention. Honestly man, its fucking pathetic. I am confident enough in my station and who I am and what I have accomplished without having to justify myself to some low-life keyboard warrior who is aching to jump into some pitiful cock measuring contest. You don't know who I am and you don't know anything about me. So please, squeeze the butt-plug out of your tight ass and get a life.

Lol, looks like you're fishing for data. Seems like the move of either a Zuckerberg lackey or a Russian troll. Either way, you guys are getting lazy in your tactics... better step up your game and seek better training from your supervisor if you want people to disclose that much personal information.

You know that all the "liberal bias" means is that liberals are more likely to get an education right?

...and from the get-go, you prove you are an absolute moron and are choked by your ideology. I think you can confidently be written off as a 'political zealot' at this point.

Pretty much everyone with an education agrees you're wrong.

...lol, the people who comment in ONE THREAD on Reddit is EVERYONE. Clearly you never took a statistics class during your tenure at university. Also, the problem of political ideology infecting university academics goes FAR beyond the US, here is an article about such phenomenons in the UK as well:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/2017/03/02/eight-ten-british-university-lecturers-left-wing-survey-finds/

...and here is an article from the Atlantic about the prospect of universities discriminating against conservative minded individuals:

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/04/conservatives-discrimination-universities/480372/

...but please good sir, continue to keep your head in the sand and pretend that this is all normal and okay. The less people like you put forward anything relevant to say about such pertinent matters, the better! Stay in your hole and focus on your chemicals and bonds and keep out of the way of people who actually have eyes to see the world.

The fact that every single person in this thread who has an education says you're full of shit just helps illustrate that.

...lol, referencing other kool-aid drunk warriors in a Reddit thread as justification for your argument? You really are university material! It must be so comforting breezing through life with blinders on.

Oh, and just for reference, here is a whole Wiki article on the phenomenon you say doesn't exist in the first place:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberal_bias_in_academia

The idea of political bias of ANY KIND in the university system is at its core anti-intellectual. If you can't recognize that, then enjoy your blissful ignorance.

Have you ever even stepped foot in a university?

...have you? I mean, I don't blame you if you have been so indoctrinated at this point that you don't even realize that you are spouting exactly the very pathetic party-line rhetoric they expect of you. But trust me, once you get out and see exactly how much you've been lied to and manipulated, I think your tune will change. But until then, try not to take it too hard if someone tells you that you're evil for wrong-thinking.

Professors are in the business of getting students to learn how to learn, think critically and avoid dogmatic thinking.

...lol, it cute that you actually think that. The fact that universities across the country are campaigning against free-speech and rights enumerated to us by the founders of this country is all one needs to know in order to realize the university system in the US is fully fucked up and has degenerated to a steaming pile of shit.

Most people who disagree with such things have already been fully brainwashed and are essentially part of the problem. I know it feels good to be inside the hug-box of a college campus, but it is FAR from being real life.

I think it is universities these days that are engaging the the "anti-intellectualism". These have become bastions of group-think and entrenched unquestionable dogma.
