^To be fair,
While we are certainly guilty of this, sociology departments are much guiltier.
And humanities departments in general have been dumbing down their curricula for the past 6 decades to the point where antics like this should not come as a surprise to anyone.
Political scientists should be the ones who can best describe the entities pushing that agenda...
Identity theories of all kinds, queer theory, critical theory, race theory, feminism, neomarxism, Frankism (that's what I'm calling Frankfurt School from now: FRANKISTS), constructivism, ETC. - it is all the same. None of it is scientific anything. It is all ideological construction. It is all a waste of time. It is a reversal of the Enlightenment. Political science is: the creation and balkanization of ideologies. Foreign espionage agencies could not do more harm to Western society than political scientists continuing to employ their time in the things and efforts they do. You call it "liberalism" - it is no such thing. It is prolonged adolescence and a money vacuum.
These kids should not be in a college in the first place (they would not have gotten in 75 years ago), but since you moron political scientists cannot correctly understand the politicization of the education system (because you are either ignorant or part of it), the politicization of the curriculum, the politics of the funding mechanisms, and the bureaucratic politics of the university administration nothing happens! These interests are moving in to destroy value systems (oh, but we call it value change - and by definition there is nothing wrong with it) and they hide behind political correctness. It's fucking respect for higher intelligence. You lack it and because you lack it, society wither.
"Well, I didn't understand that! Back to counting the bills passed in Congress to measure their productivity. HERP DERP. Blame other people too! DERRRR."
