LAURA Perrins’s post today on the ruthless tactics of the Left takes as its example the recent sacking of the Cambridge University Research Fellow, Dr Noah Carl. Her dissection of this case reveals the standard procedures now adopted by the Left to suppress any viewpoint that challenges the general imposition of their orthodoxies.
Dr Carl himself has focused on another aspect of this suppression of opinion – the ‘unfriending’ on social media by those with Left-wing/liberal views of their ideological counterparts with Right-wing/conservative views. In a nutshell, he asks if Leftists are more likely to unfriend (be intolerant of/disapprove of) friends or contacts who hold conservative views than the other way around?
To answer his own question – and being the academic researcher he is – he sets out to track down as many relevant surveys and polls as he could. He finds that the weight of evidence does confirm his thesis.
You can see all the poll findings from a range of accepted independent sources, such as Pew Research, and read his full argument here.
