A conservative activist isn't surprised that college students in the Washington, DC, area gathered at the White House last week to chant socialist slogans in celebration of President Obama's victory.

Dionisopoulos, Tim (CampusReform)Timothy Dionisopoulos of CampusReform.org was there when students from Georgetown, Howard, and George Washington Universities gathered around the White House immediately after the president's re-election was official. He reports that they chanted things like "Karl Marx" and "socialism."

"They were running in the streets, things of that nature, but I didn't see anyone really acting out in any fashion," Dionisopoulos tells OneNewsNow. "But definitely it was motivated sort of by this desire for … social acceptance and to take a knock at Middle America."

He says students were really reflecting what they have been learning on campus.

"It's very rare that you would find a conservative professor [on a college campus]. It's even rarer that you would find a course on conservatives taught at a college or university in America," the communication editor asserts.

"Whereas if you look at course listings, you've got entire departments dedicated to left-wing points of view and courses dedicated to Marxism on an intellectual and philosophical level."

Dionisopoulos encourages parents to carefully investigate the universities and colleges in which their kids are are thinking of enrolling.
