The phrase Professor values refers to the lack of morals and values in the culture of college faculties, which is characterized by atheism, censorship, socialism, unjustified claims of expertise and knowledge, advocacy of liberal beliefs, liberal grading, liberal bias, anti-patriotism, plagiarism, false claims of credentials, lack of productivity, and promotion of sexual immorality.

In a Zogby poll, 58% of Americans said that the bias of professors is a serious problem, while 39% said it is a "very serious" problem.[1]

Liberal politicians are routinely given high-ranking academic positions despite a lack of a doctorate. Examples include:

There are about 3600 colleges, many small, and perhaps 500,000 professors. Yet there have been a relatively large number of shocking crimes and bizarre conduct.

Shocking Murders and Crimes by Professors

  • Kansas State University English professor Thomas Murray was a popular teacher, but he was convicted of murdering his ex-wife with 17 stab wounds and blunt trauma to her head. She "was found dead in her bedroom atop a dresser."[2] Professor Murray had written several books, including "The Language of Sadomasochism."[3] He did not testify in his defense and spoke only at sentencing, where he called the state's case a "fairy tale."[4]
  • Shortly after the end of the school year and his contract, Marshall University Psychiatry associate professor John M. Adams burglarized and murdered Bobby Burns on July 2, 2003, and then kidnapped two women and forced them to drive him across the Ohio River.[5]
  • A British university professor was gaoled for ten months for plotting to defraud a hospital trust. [6]
  • British history professor Felipe Fernandez-Armesto was incarcerated for jaywalking and defiance of police instructions in Atlanta. [7]
  • A professor and colleague of Richard Dawkins is fined for breaching local conservation ordinances in Oxford.[8]
  • Axe-wielding Professor Daniel Storm, of the University of Washington, polluted using ether to save paying safe disposal fees.[9]
  • An Associate Professor at Youngstown State University was locked up and fined $50 after baring his buttocks in front of children at a county fair. [10]

Shocking Behavior

  • Emory University History Professor of History Michael Bellesiles, a gun control advocate, wrote a book entitled Arming America, The Origins of a National Gun Culture (2000). Gary Wills gave it a glowing review in The New York Times, but admitted later that "I was took. The book is a fraud."[11] Bellesiles resigned from his position as Professor of History when an independent committee of scholars examined his work and concluded that "his scholarly integrity is seriously in question."[12]
  • 88 Duke professors -- more than 10 percent of the liberal Duke professorial faculty - endorsed and published an advertisement hurtful to students who had been wrongly accused of rape during a lacrosse team party, which "helped create the lynch-mob atmosphere."[13]
  • When student Rebecca Beach circulated an email at Warren Community College in New Jersey disclosing that decorated Iraq war hero Lt. Col. Scott Rutter would be visiting, English professor John Daly replied: "Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors."[14]
