Butler course teaches ‘strategies’ for resisting Trump

A Butler University course masquerading as a class on “U.S. Democracy” will actually teach students “strategies for resistance” to the Trump administration.

An online course description declares that “Trump’s rhetoric is contrary to the foundation of the U.S. democracy” because it perpetuates “sexism, white supremacy, xenophobia, nationalism, nativism, and imperialism.”

UPDATE: Butler has updated the course description in response to news coverage of the course, and is promising that students will not be required to engage in activism.

I think these kids are going to end up hurting someone, thinking they will be doing it for the greater good.

Fascism will be on the rise again, and they are the fascists.
