That’s the problem: pushing politics is not academic. Indoctrination is not academic. Rejecting all self-analysis is not academic. Reducing the world into a Marxist, binary dichotomy is hardly a pillar of intellectual inquiry.

You co-opt the vocabularies of science, higher education, and liberalism to push an ideology that is not scientific, intellectually honest, or liberal.
