YAF Reports: College Courses Rife With Leftist Insanity

"Beyond the inane topics, these classes advance a liberal agenda, malign conservatives, and shut out ideological diversity.”

According to a new study, the future of America is screwed. That is to say, according to a new study of more than 50 schools’ course catalogues, America’s top universities have been wholly infected by a leftist worldview. With classes on topics such as “queering God” and the racist nature of capitalism, an entire generation is being indoctrinated.

The annual report comes courtesy of the Young America’s Foundation (YAF), a conservative group which investigates college curricula.

According to the study, identity politics has resulted in classes which are “comical in their titles and descriptions,” yet have a dangerous potential impact. YAF laments:

"Beyond the inane topics, these classes advance a liberal agenda, malign conservatives, and shut out ideological diversity.”

YAF reports that trans, gay, and feminist interpretations of God and the Bible thrive in the religion departments of Harvard, the University of Mississippi, Swarthmore College, and others. For example, in the description of its “Queering Religion” course, Pomona College states that "religion is often queerer than one might imagine.” Therefore, the school invites its students to "defy the usual assumption that religions insist on binary gender divisions and heteropatriarchal kinship models.”

Williams College’s “Racial Capitalism” class explores how capitalist economies have “always and everywhere relied upon forms of racist domination and exclusion.” Similarly, the “Unconventional History of Capitalism" course at Amherst teaches its enlistees about "our present day reality of deeply rooted, and racialized, economic inequality." 

In other words, these people are crazy -- but crazy like a fox.

Middlebury College strives toward “developing anti-racist and anti-capitalist feminisms,” as it offers courses asking, “What is your gender and how do you know?” 

The Jesuit Creighton University offers a class on “Food, Culture, Gender and Health,” a communications course on how to be “color brave,” and a “Theatre for Social Justice” class, in which students perform original sketches about climate change.

Don’t mistake the current leftist tilt as merely affecting elective courses: perhaps most grimly, according to the study, more than 100 American colleges and universities offer “social justice” as a major or minor. Furthermore, as The College Fix notes, this trend of far-leftist course composition shows no signs of stopping.

Through its infiltration of higher education, the Left continues to destroy our American institutions, and subsequently, our American way of life. They're on the attack -- like a racist, transgendered deity, raging against anti-feminist, oppressive, capitalistic religion. Sadly, that may soon be a major.
