    Professor in Pennsylvania to Teach Conservative-Friendly Course on Trump

    Professor in Pennsylvania to Teach Conservative-Friendly Course on Trump

    “Culture and Society in the Age of Trump”

    This could be a first. Over the last two years, we’ve noted numerous examples of colleges teaching anti-Trump courses, so this is refreshing.

    Campus Reform reports:

    EXCLUSIVE: Penn. prof teaching conservative-friendly Trump course

    A Pennsylvania professor claimed that university politics and sociology fields have been “hijacked by the far left” and spoke exclusively with Campus Reform about a President Donald Trump-themed course that aims to be accepting of conservative points of view.

    Lock Haven University sociology professor Kimberly Johnson created a new course to be taught in the 2019 fall semester called “Culture and Society in the Age of Trump,” according to a course flyer obtained by Campus Reform.

    The course appears to deviate from previous Trump-related classes covered by Campus Reform that either show bias against the current president or blatantly teach against his policies.

    Harvard University, for instance, has held courses called “Donald Trump and the Challenge to Liberal Democracy,” and “Constitutional Strategies For the McConnell/Trump/Kavanaugh Era.”

    Johnson detailed her motivation for starting the course to Campus Reform.

    “Conservative students have told me that they wish they had a class where they could openly express themselves, particularly concerning Trump and his politics,” She said. “For me, it doesn’t matter what a student’s views are on our current president; I hope to provide an environment where we can genuinely examine what is going on in society during such turbulent times.”

    How long until the mob (spurred on by leftist faculty members) demand she be burned at the stake for heresy?

    Conservative students have told me that they wish they had a class where they could openly express themselves . . . I hope to provide an environment where we can genuinely examine what is going on

    Unless someone takes some extraordinary precautions, intentions won’t matter once the leftoid mob takes over the class.

    Expect a GoFundMe effort to generate funds for classroom security.

    If the school promises to buy water cannons to greet the idiot Leftists, I’m in – especially if they have several people recording the protests.

    I suspect Prof. Johnson can handle the Mob, if her administrators will support her. She’s already the faculty adviser for the Young Americans for Liberty, a Libertarian group that is hated by the Mob. That doesn’t mean she’s necessarily a Libertarian, just that she supports their right to have their non-PC opinions.

    Her faculty page doesn’t contain the virtue-signaling SJW claptrap that has become common for Sociology professors. She is clearly capable of thinking for herself.

    The progressive fascists will kill this class by having SJWs sign up for the class so they can disrupt it.
