Conservative political commentator Ben Stein says the freedoms American soldiers bravely fought for during World War II are being thrown away by the nation's universities.

"The nation's universities have become no-go zones for people who do not hew to the one-party, anti-American, anti-police, anti-business attitudes of the violent brownshirts," Stein, a lawyer, actor and economist, writes in The American Spectator.

"Quiet, scholarly geniuses like Charles Murray and Heather Mac Donald — who dare to suggest that Americans should work for a living, who speak out in defense of the police — are shouted down, shoved, sometimes assaulted, and chased from campuses under guard."

Stein added his longtime friend, conservative firebrand Ann Coulter, was banned from speaking at the publically-funded University of California, Berkeley, because "she makes such witty, shining defenses of our great nation."

"There's an atmosphere of terror on campuses across the country. My beloved law school alma mater, mighty Yale, shamed itself recently by blackballing faculty who wanted to keep a sense of humor on the campus," Stein said.

It's a catastrophe for this country. It's not what our young men and their parents fought for, died for, and wept for in The War. Look quick. We're losing this war for freedom — and fast."

Stein, who has appeared in the smash movies "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Honeymoon in Vegas" and "Planes, Trains & Automobiles," also pens the Dreemz column in Newsmax Magazine.
