I agree. Cons have been bitching about the "Ivory Tower" and liberal indoctrination for longer than 20 years. It used to piss me off and I'd deride it as baseless nonsense. Having spent time around the Ivory Tower in the last 10 years, though, there is now definitely a lack of critical thinking being taught. It has been replaced by various forms of Critical Theory. This is where having Trump being the one to fight it is so bizarre. He's a shithead fighting shitheads. I want him out but, once he is (God willing), I'm not confident those who opposed him will recognize the damage wrought by this other vile theology.You and I are about the same age so it's obviously been 20 years but the only teacher I ever had pre-college who discussed politics in the classroom was a hardcore conservative.
And I should point out that I believe that conservatives were complaining about liberal indoctrination for a lot longer than 20 years.
In college it was only briefly discussed by a econ professor and it was discussed extensively by a political science professor. But it was after all a political science class.
