A new survey from intelligent.com has now shed light on the true impact that cancel culture is having across America, but in particular among college and university students, who no longer feel comfortable speaking their minds for fear of cancellation.

And as the survey from intelligent.com shows, it is generally conservative students who are most impacted by fear of cancellation:

The survey also helped to shed light on exactly what students are afraid will happen if they do share their true opinions in class.

According to the survey, men are significantly more concerned about speaking up than are women, with men fearing a potential loss of respect, while women primarily are concerned with avoiding ridicule from others.

The survey also broke down the phenomena by region, to see if particular states where more vulnerable to the influence of cancel culture than others:

The survey also asked students how likely they would be to take a class with a professor who had the opposite political views. Somewhat unsurprisingly conservatives were actually significantly more likely to want to take a class run by someone with differing political beliefs than either moderates or liberals:

The survey also went onto reveal that were also self censoring in social situations, online and among their friends.

In online spaces, 58% of conservative students, 53% of moderate students, and 51% of liberals “always” or “often” refrain from expressing opinions on political or social issues, out of concern for potential consequences.

Students are more likely to speak openly when socializing with peers in person, although 51% of conservative students, 50% of liberals, and 46% of moderates say they “always” or “often” refrain from speaking up.

As will voicing their opinions in classrooms, in social situations, men are more likely to refrain from speaking all or most of the time, regardless of political ideology.

Father, they know not what they do. Campaign promises don’t come true 98% of the time. These socialists are really sucking these kids in. Wait till the reality sets in. Unfortunately, we older folks will no longer be around to pull their nuts of the fire. In other words, they’re screwed

Feel when free speech is shut down all federal funds including grant money should be cut off. Then the school administrators and any school organizations that attempts to stifle free speech should be sued for violating the students civil rights.

Schools are one of the assets for socialists to indoctrinate a captive audience. First, though, socialists must attain positions of authority within government agencies that oversee educational institutions. They’ve accomplished that goal, and now they’re introducing all kinds of subjects that would formerly get teachers thrown out of their schools. Parents, naturally, have no input on the content of a school curriculum–these are government directed. This is a process, and it has been going on for quite awhile. We’re paying for the indoctrination of these kids, so we should have some modicum of influence on what they’re taught. That’s a sure sign of an oppressive government forming: You’re paying for things you don’t want.

This is why they made it where you needed a college degree for most jobs that really don’t require them…to have further access to the youth and continue to indoctrinate them in a setting where they are mostly on their own without parents inquiring. He who controls the minds..controls the future. How do you get around the Constitution and Bill of Rights?You de-educate them..you attack the foundation of the country..you attack and demean the Founding Fathers..you attack American history, heritage and tradition. Hence…a new generation of self loathing kids ashamed of their culture and country and now are an army of little commies like anti-fa and BLM…they are what Obama talked about as his civilian army bigger than the US military…and nobody even blinked when he openly said that in his speech when he became president. They no longer hide their intentions of dismantling our country..they don’t have to..you have enemies now running the CIA, FBI,and top brass in the military..they have all been compromised politically. Good example General Milley…who was calling China behind Trumps back promising to inform them if an attack on their country was in the plans…he needs to be removed and arrested as a traitor.
