I’m actually quite surprised College Insurrection was noticed so quickly.

But not surprised that once noticed, suspicions were aroused that CI is part of the vast right-wing conspiracy.

Jeffrey Miller is Associate Professor of Political Science at the State University of New York at New Paltz.

On his faculty blog Miller posts on a variety of topics, many of which involve belittling conservatives, such as Why Does the Right Hate English? and Contemporary conservative thought: pathetic.  Nothing wrong with that.  Even though he teaches polical theory courses, I’m sure, ahem,  he doesn’t shove his political opinions down the throats of students.

As to CI he writes:

Huh . . . a new libertarian/conservative website for colleges

And with the oddly non-conservative title of “College Insurrection.”  I wonder who funds it…

Couple of points.

Why would Miller say that “College Insurrection is an “oddly non-conservative title”?  Is it because conservatives seek to preserve the current order?  But in the case of academia the current order consists of liberals like Miller, so why would conservatives want to preserve that?

The more important point is what would make Miller suspect that College Insurrection receives funding.

Is the concept of a blog catering to conservative and libertarian students on campus so out of the realm of possibility that it must be receiving funding from some secret source?  And what would be wrong with that if it happened, liberal foundations fund all manner of liberal activities on and around campuses.

Can someone please tell me who funds blogs so I can get some of that money.  As of now your humble correspondent, helped by some advertising and donations from readers, funds both Legal Insurrection and College Insurrection.

We are not part of the vast right-wing conspiracy, although we would like to be.

Why does Miller even care?  Is Miller worried that young minds might hear views other than his own and be persuaded?

As to how we knew Prof. Miller was writing about us, well, we have our sources.

Be afraid.  Be very afraid.
