America’s top colleges and universities have bulked up politically correct courses that “malign conservatives,” and Ivy League schools have put a focus anti-Trump offerings, according to a new report from Young America’s Foundation.
Harvard University, Cornell University, Columbia University, and Dartmouth College have created courses that question the Trump presidency, scrutinize his “fake news” charges and call his election a sign of “of an imminent apocalypse.”
The leading conservative youth organization looked at some 50 top colleges and found 250 examples of courses that question conservatism and Trump.
“Many of the courses and descriptions listed in this year’s report may seem comical at first glance, but the situation that continues to unfold on America’s campuses is hardly a laughing matter. Beyond the inane, identity- and intersectionality-obsessed topics, these classes advance a liberal agenda, malign conservatives and their values, and shut out ideological diversity,” said YAF spokesman Spencer Brown, author of the 25th annual Comedy and Tragedy Report.
His report portrayed the class offerings as attempts by left-leaning institutions to undermine conservative thought.
The reports on the courses, he said in a release, “peel back the shiny veneer colleges and universities place on themselves in the name of ‘higher’ education to reveal a stark reality: campuses devoid of intellectual diversity populated with leftist professors, faculty, and administrators intent on indoctrinating the rising generation in the ways of the left.”
