College Fix reporter discusses campus craziness in interview with conservative radio host

The College Fix staff reporter Nathan Rubbelke on Tuesday joined conservative radio host Trevor Carey to discuss some of the latest craziness seen on America’s college campuses.

Carey, host of The Trevor Carey Show on PowerTalk 96.7 in Fresno, California, opened the interview by mentioning what he calls “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” referring to how liberals have panicked in the era of President Donald Trump.

Asked about the symptoms of “TDS” seen on college campuses today, Rubbelke pointed to student protests this semester that have sought to shut down speakers espousing conservative opinions.

“I mean, basically if you’re a conservative, good luck speaking without getting shouted down. I think we’ve seen a trend this semester that people who come onto campus with conservative viewpoints, they’re not going to be met with friendliness and cheers,” Rubbelke said.

While highlighting liberal student activism on campuses, Carey and Rubbelke also discussed that many professors also participate in such activism. Rubbelke mentioned a recent College Fix article about hundreds of professors signing on to a letter asking New York City to remove monuments dedicated to Teddy Roosevelt and Christopher Columbus.

“So when professors are calling for that type of thing, it should be no surprise that we see such activism in students as well,” Rubbelke said.

The interview also touched on segregation on college campuses, and other recent stories published by The College Fix.
