Is the U.S. becoming a One Party state?

Is the U.S. is becoming a One Party state, like the former Soviet Block?  It seems that increasingly only one party affiliation and set of views – the "liberal" one – is tolerated or acceptable, at least among those who control and deliver education and the mainstream media. Increasingly, academia, media, and public education are controlled by the One Party. This means advancement, entry and employment in these fields is controlled by One Party.   Its a kind of "soft" (or perhaps not so soft) thought control. Those who express views not approved by the gate keepers to graduation or employment just don't get good grades, don't get hired, or they may get fired, for having heretical views.  The attitude of "You're not welcome here" may also simply discourage any people with alternative views from even applying to work in fields dominated by the One Party.

Is it really desirable to have our educational system – from kindergarten to graduate school – as well as our media controlled by people who all belong to One Party?  How is this different from the Soviet or National Socialist systems where all education and media was controlled by One Party?

Fascism is a collectivist ideology. "As an economic system, fascism is socialism with a capitalist veneer. The word derives from fasces, the Roman symbol of collectivism and power: a tied bundle of rods with a protruding ax." http://www.econlib.org/library/Enc/Fascism.html

Almost all early fascists were Marxists. “Nazism” is short for National SOCIALISM. (Why don't the advocates of socialism acknowledge this?) Hitler was a socialist who based his collectivism on nationality; Marx, Lenin and Stalin based their socialism on class.

Do you not think many conservatives have beliefs that make them either unlikely to or unfit to be a part of the scientific sphere (e.g. evolution denial, climate change denial, etc.)?

Is it not possible that people who are more likely to become academics are more likely to have left-leaning views? Support for this hypothesis can be seen in the Intelligence Paradox, which proposes that higher intelligence is correlated with pro-social behaviour and evolutionarily novel behaviour.
