They beat them up!

Uh oh, looks like someone forgot their crazy pills. Here's a snippet of Pat Robertson today, via Crooks and Liars:
ROBERTSON: Ladies and gentleman this is a fascinating book. If you want to, you'd better take your blood pressure medicine before you read it, but it's "The Professors: The 101 most dangerous academics in America" and that's just a short list of the 30-40,000 of them, they're like termites that have worked into the woodwork of our academic society and it's appalling. This is available at CBN.com and book stores everywhere, and you really ought to read it and be informed.

TERRI: It’s interesting that so many conservatives haven't seen this because decades ago we were told that infiltrating education was the way to take over the country, we should have been on alert.

ROBERTSON: They gamed it, these guys are out and out communists, they are radicals, you know some of them killers, and they are propagandists of the first order and they don't want anybody else except them. That's why Regent University for example is so terrifically important and why we're setting up an undergraduate program that hopefully will see shortly 10,000 students, and then from there 250,000 because you don't want your child to be brainwashed by these radicals, you just don't want it to happen. Not only brainwashed but beat up, they beat these people up, cower them into submission. Ahhh! "The Professors", read it.

That's right, people, that socially awkward, uber-introverted, spindly old man in front of the blackboard, the one in the corduroy sportcoat with the elbow patches: he gets together with his spindly buddies, corners a couple of uppity conservative freshmen, and all of a sudden the whole scene is a flurry of broken tortoiseshell frames and shredded MLA handbooks!

Yes, folks, they beat these people up! And cower them into tautologie... er, I mean, submission! And they walk them around like dogs on leashes! And then they cover them in cheese! And make them watch old reruns of "Herman's Head"! AHHHHHH DAMN YOU LIBERALS DAMN YOUUUUUUU!!!!!

I think the only plausible conclusion from this is that neither Pat nor his companion anchor have ever been to college. Otherwise they'd understand that the crazy lefty professors to whom they're referring are in most students' parlance, "that crazy dude whose class I have to get through this semester." Students make buddies with professors they like and with whom they tend to agree, according to my experience. So the conservative kiddos made buddies with the Rasputin-loving self-hating-gay Russian history professor and the lefty kiddos made buddies with the crazy I-wish-I-could-convince-my-wife-to-
girlfriend pot-smoking Latin Americanist. And then most kiddos made buddies with the crazy libertarian just because his approach to history (and life) was pure gossip. I have to say my favorite professors were the ones with whom I disagreed about just about everything. But then, that's the point, right, to have everything we believe challenged at that very important point in our psycho-social development? Idiots.
