    Study Finds NRA Members Likely to be Discriminated Against in Academia

    Study Finds NRA Members Likely to be Discriminated Against in Academia

    “most likely to hurt an aspiring professor’s chance of getting hired”

    Is anyone surprised by this? Many college students don’t even want campus police to be armed.

    The College Fix reports:

    NRA members highly likely to face discrimination in academia: Study

    Membership in the National Rifle Association, one of the nation’s premier civil rights groups, is very likely to hurt one’s chances at getting a job in academia, a new study has found.

    The study, by University of North Texas Professor George Yancey, found that, among a large variety of organizations and socio-political demographics, NRA membership topped the list as the most likely to cost one a chance at a job, PJ Media reports.

    “Political groups listed in the survey included Communist, Libertarian, Green Party, Republican, NRA, ACLU, and Democrat,” according to PJ Media; also included in the study were “groups such as vegetarians and single-parents.”

    “Of all political affiliations, NRA membership was ranked as the most likely to hurt an aspiring professor’s chance of getting hired, with 41.2 percent conceding that it would ‘damage’ an applicant’s chance of getting hired,” the study found:

    NRA members fared even worse than Republicans. Only 28.7 percent of professors indicated that Republican party membership would damage a candidate’s chance of being hired, according to Yancey’s research.

    Since when is membership in groups like the NRA expected to be disclosed on job applications? Unless they are finding this stuff out as part of the “background checks” that some employers use….

    What, you want to respond to mass shootings of forcibly disarmed people by allowing people to be armed instead of by more stringently disarming them? You want to be RATIONAL?? In ACADEMIA??

    Strictly verboten. Only when everyone is completely defenseless will we finally be safe. Anyone who thinks otherwise has not been fully lobotomized yet by radical leftist propaganda and hence must be hermetically sealed off from college students or the complete lobotomization of the next generation will be in jeopardy.
