Can you even imagine this happening at an American university during Obama’s presidency? It would have been unthinkable.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Butler University is now offering a full-on anti-Trump course
Located deep in the Heartland is Butler University. Sporting a beautiful campus and renowned for being a top academic institution in the area, the private college has been a leader in the midwest for more than century, and a place where students of all political persuasions can come together to debate competing ideas about life, government, science, and the arts.
Now, despite being located in Indiana—a state that voted overwhelming for President Trump in November—the university appears to be trafficking in anti-Trumpism.
During the Fall 2017 semester, students at Butler will be able to take a “special topics” course called “Trumpism & U.S. Democracy.” In the course’s description, students are told they’ll be taught the real reason Trump won the 2016 election and they’ll be provided “strategies for resistance” to the Trump administration’s evil agenda.
“Donald J. Trump won the U.S. Presidency despite perpetuating sexism, white supremacy, xenophobia, nationalism, nativism, and imperialism,” the course description reads. “This course explores why and how this happened, how Trump’s 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.”
