    Excellent! I suppose because you watch a "fair and balanced" news source, your next post will be on the hundreds of millions of dollars those two universities receive from American millionaires and billionaires, along with the insinuation that the money accounts for their ideological bent towards capitalism. I'm right, aren't I?

    Fox is being stupid about this. Many countries endow scholarships at American Universities. They also provide grants for specific research like emissions reduction.

    Of course Fox is too damned stupid to know that Saudi Arabia and the UAE are strictly CAPITALISTS.

    In Venezuela, it was the precursor to dictatorship. They kept graduating students that were indoctrinated with socialism/communism thought.

    The information definitely has China on the list.

    Is China Still Communist?

    We have to wait for the money trail.. However, it's left leaning slant does leave it for suspect.

    Emission reduction is a side issue. Of course they have other grants but MILLIONS of unreported income from Communist China? Very suspect IMO.

    Doesn't matter, once the little turds get out most of them will forget all about all their indoctrination and enjoy their capitalist lifestyle.

    Because they also have an anti-America influence? Remarkably observant!

    While the Chinese Communist Party has adopted some aspects of capitalism, China remains a textbook communist country: The Party controls all land and the “Commanding Heights of the Economy“; it maintains strict controls on speech, assembly, and belief; and the Chinese regime’s political structure is that of a classic Leninist dictatorship.

    From the site that I quoted.

    And that was a step on the way to true communism
    It was control of the means of the means of production by a one party state

    True. The colleges have always been politically progressive. That's surely because academics are smarter than most folks.:p

    Well, it seems to me that if they were really communist, they would donate to the less affluent colleges and the schools in the poor areas. Harvard and Yale are already rich. They don't need any donations.

    Actually, there is some logic to their madness. As Harvard and Yale are powerhouses to influence, they have greater capacity to change the course of the US of A
