Blue Spots in Red States

That would be the Cultural Marxism Indoctrination Centers universities.

One anonymous fellow recounts his first days in the tenure track:

.... My political leanings posed a special challenge during faculty job interviews. With ample practice over the years — and after several na´ve attempts to present myself as an enlightened conservative ended in rejection letters — I finally mastered the art of the unnoticed evasion. At the mere mention of politics, I would smile knowingly, roll my eyes, maybe grimace for good measure, and then return to an earlier thread in the conversation. If you can use "speaking of which" to make the segue, all the better....
I've come to see that, as passionate about traditions as it is, my new college leans with equal rigor to the left. That was never more apparent than in the days after the election when people like myself came under heavy attack from my colleagues for our "stupidity" in failing to vote for the enlightened candidate. "That just tells you how stupid they are; now they have no one to blame but themselves," said one. Another insisted that the result of the election was "criminal." ....

Why are our universities nests of Marxoids? Well, the very idea of "tenure track" — once you're in, you're in for life unless you, like, kill somebody — goes along way towards explaining the situation, no?

(Thanks, John.)
