Skip to comments.Wake up, alumni: Another university under siege

Syracuse University denied an application for Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) to become a Registered Student Organization (RSO), stating, as one of its reasons for doing so, that requiring students to believe in the U.S. Constitution is "exclusionary to international students."
The story gets sillier after more reading:
Of the Syracuse University registered student organizations that appear political in nature, Campus Reform identified six of them as left-leaning while just one is conservative.
This is insane.
First, I've known many foreign students over the years. Let's say the ones I know were not offended by the U.S. Constitution or symbols. On the contrary, they found the rights enumerated in the documents inspirational.
Furthermore, I don't know of any foreign student who was forced to pledge allegiance to the flag.
Second, the issue here is not foreign students. The problem is a college leadership that hates the U.S.
Third, I remember living in Mexico and talking with U.S. students learning Spanish down there. I never got the feeling that these students expected Mexico to change for them. For example, Article 33 of the Mexican Constitution forbids foreigners to engage in political activities.
Again, it's the college leadership driving this outrageous position. One of these days, we will figure out that our universities are a threat to our young.

The people who run universities are so evil.
I’m torn between who I’d neutralize first, the media, or university administrations. The media is the power, but the universities have built the media and their brain dead followers.
This country is doomed.
Academia is where ideologue parasites go to survive without being challenged or forced to produce anything useful.
And we subsidize it with massive government spending and massive student debt.
I can tell you from personal knowledge that Syracuse in a fine Leftist Indoctrination Center.
“Third, I remember living in Mexico and talking with U.S. students learning Spanish down there. I never got the feeling that these students expected Mexico to change for them.”
This is entirely true, and not only in Mexico. Before you travel to foreign land, you must understand their laws and abide by them! You are a guest in their home.
I also find it funny that the campus is speaking for these foreign exchange students without their input. Did anyone ever ask them if they are offended or upset by our Consitution? Last time I checked, many leave their home countries so they can reap the benefits that we American’s have.
They need to lose all federal funding.
It’s offensive to foreign students.
