Pat Robertson has come out in support of a poll that showed the majority of Republicans dislike colleges. A Pew research poll showed 58 percent of Republicans viewed college in a negative light.
“I completely agree with the results of the poll,” said Robertson on “The 700 Club.” “You can’t trust those liberal colleges to educate your kids. You send your son to a liberal college and he’ll come back as a transgender, who believes satanic lies like evolution and global warming.”
The Daily Beast recently published a long list of Robertson’s past crimes such as doing business with African tyrants and blaming gays for 9/11. Robertson recently conducted a soft-ball interview with President Donald Trump, who accused Barack Obama of colluding with Russia.
Robertson also recommended parents send their children to Christian schools like Regents University (which he owns) and Liberty University.
Media Matters said right-wing animosity towards higher education has been building for a while.
“According to Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, colleges are ‘literally corrupting people’s minds’ and ‘turning them into jihadists.’ Meanwhile, Fox News contributor Bernie Goldberg equated ‘liberals on college campuses’ to the Nazi Brown Shirts,’” said Media Matters writer Brett Robertson. “Then-Fox News host Bill O’Reilly blamed Black Lives Matter for ‘the rise of fascism on American college campuses.”
