No, we are not making this up. The following is an excerpt from a fundraising email sent out this morning by the John W. Pope Center for Higher Education Policy (better known as the Pope Center to Dismantle Higher Education):
“While we congratulate the president on his victory, conservatives are asking themselves why he won. One reason is our universities.
For years they have failed to give undergraduates an understanding of markets, the role of free enterprise, and the problems of a highly redistributive state. Obama himself lacks that appreciation, which is part of why our economic slump continues.
The Pope Center is dedicated to restoring balance to our colleges and universities. We expose misguided, one-sided courses that attack capitalism and we help students on campus see other aspects of important issues in U.S. history. We encourage universities to teach analytical skills that citizens need. Step by step, we are showing how to bring change to our universities.
Your gift is needed to advance our work! Please give $50, $100, or more to the Pope Center. You can donate easily at popecenter.org/support. Or send your check to the address below.”
