We’ve known for years that American higher education is dominated by liberals and leftists.
But apparently, the situation is more dire than even we suspected.
In recent years, there has been a creeping Marxism onto college and university campuses, and in fact, our Ivy League schools have led the way.
We have tended to dismiss this phenomenon as an isolated problem, but that’s been a mistake.
You see, the professors who espouse this propaganda pass it along to their students, of course.
And these students from the country’s top schools go on to run corporations, get into politics, and dominate academia.
Of course, it’s not just the Ivy League schools.
Marxism and, yes, even straight-up communism is being taught.
And we have someone who grew up in the worst of that kind of system — North Korea — to thank for sounding the alert.
Fox News reports:
As American educational institutions continue to be called into question, a North Korean defector fears the United States’ future “is as bleak as North Korea” after she attended one of the country’s most prestigious universities.
Yeonmi Park has experienced plenty of struggle and hardship, but she does not call herself a victim.
One of several hundred North Korean defectors settled in the United States, Park, 27, transferred to Columbia University from a South Korean university in 2016 and was deeply disturbed by what she found.
“I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think,” Park said in an interview with Fox News. “I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying.”
“'American Bastard’ was one word for North Koreans” Park was taught growing up.
“The math problems would say ‘there are four American bastards, you kill two of them, how many American bastards are left to kill?'”
She was also shocked and confused by issues surrounding gender and language, with every class asking students to announce their preferred pronouns.
“English is my third language. I learned it as an adult. I sometimes still say ‘he’ or ‘she’ by mistake and now they are going to ask me to call them ‘they’? How the heck do I incorporate that into my sentences?”
“It was chaos,” said Yeonmi. “It felt like the regression in civilization.”
“Even North Korea is not this nuts,” she admitted. “North Korea was pretty crazy, but not this crazy.”
“Because I have seen oppression, I know what it looks like,” said Yeonmi, who by the age of 13 had witnessed people drop dead of starvation right before her eyes.
“These kids keep saying how they're oppressed, how much injustice they’ve experienced. They don’t know how hard it is to be free,” she said.
“I literally crossed through the middle of the Gobi Desert to be free. But what I did was nothing, so many people fought harder than me and didn’t make it.”
“You guys have lost common sense to degree that I as a North Korean cannot even comprehend,” she said.
“Where are we going from here?” she wondered. “There's no rule of law, no morality, nothing is good or bad anymore, it’s complete chaos.”
“I guess that’s what they want, to destroy every single thing and rebuild into a Communist paradise.”
This is our future — one giant North Korea — if patriots don’t get their heads out of their a—s and take this country away from the Commies.
