Caleb Bonham, a reporter for a group dedicated to opposing campus liberalism, told Fox News on Thursday that he had investigated Harvard University students and come the the “concerning” conclusion that they were “listening to what they are learning in class.”
Earlier this week, the group Campus Reform sparked outrage among conservatives when it published interviews with Harvard students who said that the United States was a bigger threat to world peace than ISIS.
This student’s answer was typical of the responses Campus Reform published:
During a segment titled “Trouble With Schools” on Thursday, Fox News host Brian Kilmeade noted that “people are stunned” after seeing the Campus Reform video.
Bonham admitted that he had to edit out a few people who said that ISIS was a bigger threat that the U.S., “but then I was shocked to see that student after student, as we continued our interviews, found ways to blame America.”
“This is sort of a fad that sweeping the nation,” he explained. “Students think it’s highbrow to be able to somehow blame America for the world’s ills.”
Bonham charged that colleges and universities — and President Barack Obama — were teaching students that “America is to blame.”
“They’re hearing situation after situation where America is the root of all evil,” Bonham insisted. “And I really expected every student to look at me, roll their eyes, and say, ‘Come on, ISIS is the problem here.'”
“But what I find funny about our video, and it’s sad, my video proves that students are listening to what they’re learning in class,” he added. “And that’s concerning.”
Kilmeade lamented that students who argued in class that America was more responsible for problems in the world than ISIS would have gotten an A.
“Unfortunately, they would have looked at it as diversity of thought,” Bonham agreed. “And valued that more than somebody trying to support the good that America has done.”
Kilmeade concluded by thanking Bonham, adding that his work was “disturbing but necessary.”
