Butler U. Responds to Criticism of Anti-Trump Course by Changing Description
“strategies for resistance”
The course hasn’t changed at all, they’re just trying to run for cover over backlash.
The College Fix reports:
University whitewashes anti-Trump course description, but content remains the same
Give Butler University credit: It knows how to appease the mainstream media with purely cosmetic changes.
The Indiana liberal arts school said a professor who teaches a “Trumpism & U.S. Democracy” course would no longer require students to plot “resistance” against President Trump in class. But the course remains virulently and uncritically anti-Trump.
Here’s the original, poorly written description for the “special topics” course:
Donald J. Trump won the U.S [sic] Presidency despite perpetuating sexism, white supremacy, xenophobia, nationalism, nativism, and imperialism.
This course explores why and how this happened, how Trump+s [sic] rhetoric is contrary to the foundation of the U.S. democracy, and what his win means for the future. The course will also discuss, and potentially engage in, strategies for resistance.
