How to Hide Your Conservativism in Academia, Lesson #3: Learn to Use Liberal-Speak

In order to hide my conservative views from my liberal colleagues it has been helpful to learn some of the liberal lingo. So, whenever possible and appropriate I sprinkle my discourse with references to globalization, consumerism, environmentalism, sexism, class, race, gender, and “big-box” stores. In doing so, I give my colleagues the impression that I’m playing on their team. I hate doing it, but my department is simply so liberal and they are so biased against anyone that is conservative that it is just necessary to do so.
