    the leftist bias here inferred clearly is a violation of our rights as citizens to freedom from such inewindows utilized by people who actively seek to seed our government and educational system with unethical propaganda designed to destroy the American family unit. please accept this as a prelude to a formal grievance. masculinity is not a disease and family’s are not subversives. and republicans and other right wing conservatives are NOT the enemies of Law Enforcement, we are their Strongest Advocates. If these sort of thesis are your examples, i must doubt the governments commitment to remaining unbias academically and for the sake of true democratic justice.
