‘We Gotta Stop This’: Pro-Trump One America News Fights ‘Socialist’ College Courses
The right-wing news network scoffed at the titles of basic college classes studying race, gender, and economic theory.
Because we watch Trumpland TV so you don’t have to, today we learned that the Young America’s Foundation has released its annual “Dirty Dozen” list, featuring the 12 most “appalling” college courses it claims are fostering “intellectual abuse and flat-out indoctrination.”
YAF’s Spencer Brown joined One America News host Liz Wheeler to discuss the “pipeline for indoctrinating the next generation of socialist voters,” but they seem to have struggled to find much of substance to be offended by:
There's a class called Immigration to the United States: Beyond Walls. At Northwestern University we have Beyond the Binary: Transgender and Race, at Williams College we have Racial Capitalism...it's like they've targeted all the progressive talking points and in college said "Okay, how can turn normal, rational teenagers, 18-year-olds into our crazy socialists. These classes are how they do it.
The course that topped YAF’s list is offered at Illinois, and is titled “Gender in Gaming,” a topic that has been discussed so long the idea it ought to be debated is now anodyne.
“American Misogyny” at Middlebury College also pops up, and we can’t possibly imagine why that might be relevant today.
“Cuba from Emancipation to Revolution” at Georgia is literally a history class; I took a similar one in college, though it was about Canadian history, and it didn't seem to upset anybody.
And Princeton’s “Marx in the 21st Century” seems a pretty apt offering, considering that it is the 21st century and a substantial percentage of the world’s population lives in countries ostensibly governed by Marxist principles.
