WATCH: GOP Congressional Candidate Says College Turns Kids Into “Leftist Hating-America Atheists”

If you believe that more education, more information, and deeper context inherently turn people away from everything your political party holds dear, maybe the problem isn’t with education. Still, introspection is hard, and demonizing higher education is on the agenda for some right-wing extremists.

In the clip below, you can see Christian Collins, who’s running to represent his Texas district in Congress, warn his audience that their children will go off to “college that you paid for” and professors will try to “deconstruct” the values their students were raised with, turning them into “radical, leftist, hating-America atheists, [who] don’t have any useful skills.”

Of course, there are always extremists and outliers who will take positions no one else could find tenable, and Collins is one of nearly a dozen contenders in his primary race, which is coming up on March 1st. However, he’s not set up as an outlier in this race — according to the Texas Tribune, he has the endorsement of the House Freedom Caucus, as well as support from Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and from some of the Trumpiest House members, including Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), both of whom appeared at his event Sunday night.

This is one of the primaries that may be seen as a referendum on Trumpism, as Collins squares off against Morgan Lutrell. The two candidates are set up as the representatives of either side of the Republican Party, with Lutrell being seen as aligned with more classic conservativism, and Collins representing the Trump Party.
