BOB GOES TO THE MOVIES | 2005-01-29

Brainwashing 101 is an online video that provides some compelling evidence of just how deeply the religion called Political Correctness is embedded in our campuses.

Note that I didn't say Political Correctness was like a religion. It IS a religion. This film doesn't specifically bring out that point, but shows it clearly enough.

The students featured in the documentary are treated as heretics for expressing contrary opinions. Police are called because someone wants to post a flyer advertising a guest speaker. Could one imagine any worse treatment being accorded to a member who questioned a key doctrine in a fundamentalist church?

Professors are the priesthood of Political Correctness. They alone can dispense blessings. The blessing bestowed is called a diploma. Academia is a completely isolated and inbred system that increasingly becomes farther and farther removed from reality. That is because professors are not held accountable by anyone. No one demands that what they teach actually work in the real world.

I would have liked to see the film address these key issues. Hopefully, the full-length feature they are working on will. But I encourage everyone to watch the film and let others know about it.
