Pat Robertson's War on Academia

That crazy old bat, Pat "Crazy Legs" Robertson, has identified a new enemy: College Professors. Via Crooks and Liars:
ROBERTSON: Ladies and gentleman this is a fascinating book. If you want to, you'd better take your blood pressure medicine before you read it, but it's "The Professors: The 101 most dangerous academics in America" and that's just a short list of the 30-40,000 of them, they're like termites that have worked into the woodwork of our academic society and it's appalling. This is available at and book stores everywhere, and you really ought to read it and be informed.

TERRI: It's interesting that so many conservatives haven't seen this because decades ago we were told that infiltrating education was the way to take over the country, we should have been on alert.

ROBERTSON: They gamed it, these guys are out and out communists, they are radicals, you know some of them killers, and they are propagandists of the first order and they don't want anybody else except them. That's why Regent University for example is so terrifically important and why we're setting up an undergraduate program that hopefully will see shortly 10,000 students, and then from there 250,000 because you don't want your child to be brainwashed by these radicals, you just don't want it to happen. Not only brainwashed but beat up, they beat these people up, cower them into submission. Ahhh! "The Professors", read it.
My friend Ann, who's getting her Ph.D. so she --- according to Robertson --- can become one of those killer professors who'll no doubt "brainwash and beat up" her students into submission, is totally pissed. And rightfully so. Actually, what's "infiltrating education" (except at Robertson's Regent University, of course), is free thinking and intellectualism.

Or at least we hope it continues that way.

And who the FUCK wants to go to Regent University anyway? They're not even top tier. Pfft.
