GOP Lawmaker Calls For Getting Rid Of Colleges Because ‘Higher Education Makes People Liberals’

A Republican lawmaker has called for getting rid of the entire higher education system, asserting that such a move would “save America” from liberals.

Tennessee State Sen. Kerry Roberts made the remarks while speaking on his conservative talk radio show, according to the Associated Press. He addressed his problems with the higher education system while discussing a recent legislative hearing focused on abortion legislation.

Roberts argued that an activist’s public testimony in favor of abortion rights was a “product of higher education,” adding that abolishing the system would “save America.”

He also claimed that the removal of higher education would cut off a “liberal breeding ground” and questioned why public colleges were funded by tax dollars.

Roberts did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Political Dig.
