It's no secret that universities often undermine conservative ideals.  Many are now becoming openly hostile to conservative leaders. A group of psychology professors recently met at Yale University and alleged that President Trump is mentally ill. The problem here is that it violates their own rule which forbids them from psychoanalyzing people they have't personally evaluated. A painting by a University of Alaska professor featured Captain America holding the severed head of President Donald Trump.  And a Fresno State professor tweeted that Donald Trump "must hang." That professor has since been placed on leave and is under investigation. Regardless of how strongly professors feel about a politician, we expect them to handle themselves professionally, with decorum and respect. But that's not happening. Until they've mastered basic standards of civility, they shouldn't be teaching weightier subjects.
