You'd think conservatives would be selected by the Free Market to teach their ideology, if anybody actually wanted them to.  It's a shame that they rely on affirmative action in order to subvert the Free Market for their personal gain, at the cost of innocent, American taxpayers.

Satanic_Hamster: Week Six: Young Conservatives Bake Sale That Proves A Point About Affirmative Action, Which, By The Way, Martin Luther King Was Probably Against

Random CSB:
My daughter said their College Dems swarmed one of those bake sales early with minority customers, bought everything cheaply, then set up a stand and resold it at a profit to prove Democrats are stronger on economic issues.

It's nice to see that conservatives are being helped out as a minority in universities. Minorities need to be protected sometimes.

pute kisses like a man: i had some conservative professors. there are a lot more conservative opinions in university, they're just not as loud about their opinions.

/ yet, i don't deny that the majority leans liberal.
// once i got to law school, the number of conservative professors increased rather dramatically.  and i went to a hippy communist jesuit law school.  i mean, we had to study poor people law.  lots of it.  and do things for the poor.  legal things.

I work at CU, so I'm getting a kick, etc.

The last two presidents of the university have been very conservative, and this position is the brainchild of the former, who had been a senator with an (R) after his name. The position is privately funded, so while we complain about this kind of partisan crap, there's no real wrong-doing here (other than hypocrisy. Affermative action for some, little American flags for others!) The University only gets something like 3-5% of its operating budget from the state anymore, so once it goes fully private we can dump this kind of "both sides" crap and be as we want to be, which is more liberal arts/science, less animal husbandry than CSU.

The made up position is, naturally, the first of its kind anywhere, and is entirely funded by donations from concerned conservative citizens like Denver banker Earl Wright.

Am I the only one who lol'd at this?

qorkfiend: hdhale: Actually it's more like, "change for change's sake is bad", which as we have seen over the the past 50 years has proven true.

You're going to have to expound on that one a bit. What changes over the last 50 years do you deem to have been made solely "for change's sake"?

Civil rights, women's rights, workers' rights, gay rights, ... so much evil "change for change's sake".

"We want students to have a chance to understand a conservative, free-enterprise approach to public policy," Mr. Wright said. "I think it's underrepresented on the campus."

Uh, I'm pretty sure every university offers this approach. It's usually called the college of business.
