Our college campuses have become breeding grounds for woke cults, former Portland State University professor Peter Boghossian argues, and the rest of society has suffered because of it. But what can we do about it?
Peter, who escaped the cult of academia, joins the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss how the dangerous ideologies that started in our schools have now spread nationwide as people abandon reality for "anti-civics" and global elites work to transform our lives without inviting us to the table.
"You don't want to learn things that are false, it's better to not do it at all," Peter told Glenn. "We have institutions now that are teaching people things that are totally untethered to reality. They're just clearly false. They're demonstrably false."
Peter used the example of "fat studies" to demonstrate the dangers of indoctrinating students with false ideologies.
"My mom died from complications of type-2 diabetes. She struggled with her weight her whole life, and now we have people — ideologues with jobs for life — teaching 'fat studies', telling people about 'fat acceptance,'" he said. "This is a horror show ... and young women are particularly susceptible to it. It's far better that my daughter does not go into one of those environments."
Peter said he has advised his own daughter to choose a vocational school or apprenticeship over college, and warned other parents that "people outside the universities, they don't understand how bad it is."
