University students offered extra credit to attend anti-Trump march

35

America’s colleges and universities today aren’t centers of higher learning. They are indoctrination centers for the hard-left. What happened at Pitt is happening in different ways all over the country.

“Pitt students encouraged extra credit to attend Radical Left march,” The Pitt Maverick, November 17, 2016 (thanks to Christian):

The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Social Work encouraged its professors to offer students extra credit to participate in a radical leftist rally in downtown Pittsburgh.

On Thursday, students enrolled in Pitt’s School of Social Work along with faculty received an email urging them to sign up for “A People’s Agenda for Change: National Day of Action” on Tuesday, Nov. 29. The email, which Student Services Specialist and assistant to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Mary Patricia Elhattab sent, implored professors to give their students extra credit should they attend.

Lindsey Hern, a senior Social Work major, said that she receives a lot of similar, “one-sided” emails, and that she regularly feels alienated as one of the only conservatives in the department.

“It’s really ostracizing when your own department sanctions an event that is so exclusive to one set of students,” Hern told The Pitt Maverick.

Along with the extra credit opportunity for students who attend, they also receive free transportation from Pitt’s campus to downtown Pittsburgh.

According to the email, the march is about “taking a stand to say that Pittsburgh will not accept business as usual” as well as challenging the “rigged economy.” There is also a link to the sign-up page provided in the email.

“People in every city in the country will be taking to the streets to raise the minimum wage, help workers organize, support undocumented workers, fight climate change and confront structural racism and sexism,” the email reads.

Pitt’s campus is among the hundreds of other campuses to protest against Trump after his election victory last Tuesday. On Thursday, at least three students were arrested after a fight between protesters and campus police broke out in the Litchfield Towers Lobby, where police were forced to use batons and knee strikes to subdue the unruly, the Post-Gazette reported.

“This isn’t the first time this has happened,” Hern said. “I rarely feel welcome in class, especially when my professors openly harp on how terrible capitalism is and how Trump supporters are insufferable.”

    Sounds like they have created a hostile environment for conservatives.. Maybe the government should stop subsidizing these schools and hold back on guarantees for student loans.

  • Keith Weinman

    This has been happening dor some time – almost none of the various University departments that orintatged towards “understanding society” function as academic institutions. They are simply indoctrination centgers.

  • Solipsis

    Pull all possible funding from these places until they wise up.
    No point anyone going to Uni in America, I wouldn’t respect any degree nowadays.

    I see people comparing people that oppose the Muhammadism-conspiracy to Nazis. Why are we as people who oppose the Muhammadism-conspiracy, why is Trump not exposing the Nazis as actors of the Muhammadism-conspiracy led by Amin El-Husseini? Why are we not exposing sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, child-rapist & pederast, mass-murderer, theist psychopath, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist Muhammad’s crimes at the institutions of the academia. Why are we not educating teachers that are dedicated to exposing sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, child-rapist & pederast, mass-murderer, theist psychopath, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist Muhammad & his Muhammadism-conspiracy?
    If we don’t, we are & appear complicit to those who know.
    It’s time for a global awakening.
    A national opposition to racism & a fight for ethics: profound human rights & ecology in governance & industry is hypocritical & complicit if it leaves out global, strategically relevant issues as Muhammadist slavery of Africans historically & today.
    The academia probably because of bad-education & self-importance is more intent on putting on uniforms of political views on it’s students rather then to equip them with real knowledge that would prepare them to solve today’s problems & create a better world.

    Did you know: There’s slavery today of Africans in Saudi Arabia, Mauritania(25%,50%?of population), new north Sudan, Kuwait, Bahrain, Yemen, Oman, Algeria, Lebanon, Qatar (?), Pakistan, UAE, Niger, Libya, Nigeria, Chad, Mali, Somalia & elsewhere inspired by sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, child-rapist & pederast, mass-murderer, theist psychopath, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist Muhammad who owned Africans as slaves & said that his deity turned Africans black, so their descendants would be slaves to Arabs & Turks (Abeed means African & slave in Arabic,) (Read more about sadist, racist slaver Muhammad at WikiIslam). & IslamicState stated they want to revive slavery of Africans in America.
    Anti-African racists & Muhammadism Out of Africa!
    Ban the Muhammadism-conspiracy & democracy, save profound human rights!

      There are many questions surrounding Breitbart’s death. Several of his closest friends are dead, too. Sounds like the Clintons were at work, again. It is their modus operandi.

  • Wayne Ville … a Deplorable

    Another fake university. Parents do not fund this cesspool. Refuse to give tuition money to your children that wish to go there.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    All federal funding to any school that promotes any political agenda, is to be stopped. There is very little money available for education, it will have to be spent on education, not democrat propaganda and civil irresponsibility.

  • Paul Otts

    Just one more bit of proof that these “protests” are ginned up!

  • Ron Cole

    The Alumni should fire all involved with this madness.
    All feral gutter`minted aid should be stopped. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5d622e89cd92b1ac89032e6665eb8a91549ed89b3097e50276547686af2d36cf.jpg
    These Traitors and scum should be banned from any college.
    Perhaps deportation to a country that these wack jobs seek to replace America with
    would be just punishment –
    argentina or chicago.

      The picture of the guy flying through the air after getting a swift one in the rear should have a keffiyah around his neck, flapping in the breeze.

  • Ron Cole

    These anti-American scum bag wack jobs should be fired by the Alumni and banned from any educational facility, grade school, high school, college, or university campus forever.
    Any and all Federal or State Funds should be removed and withheld.

    Perhaps deportation to the country with the gutter`mint of their preference would be suitable –
    argentina or chi-town as examples.

      Back in the late 1960’s (when I was in college) the Communist Party USA was very active on campuses all over the U.S. You could go to the Student Union building and there would be several tables set up with booklets, etc. all professing the greatness of communism….you know…everybody gets everything for free. They were spewing the Lenenist lies “There would be no police or crime as everyone would have everything. There would be no religion as it would be Heaven on Earth”. I am sure plenty of the lazy turds bought into this garbage and they are the professors you have today. Go back to when rat obama was first running in 2007, remember what people were saying? “I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage…I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car…etc.” He was sold to many as the second coming of Lenin. Everybody (who votes for rat obama) gets everything for free.
      Currently, POS rat obama is on TV extolling the virtues of the protesters and how they “will bring America to new heights”. Just like in Cuba, to be sure.
      My computer will not capitalize the names of the enemies of the United States, either (Lenin is long dead).

        I suffered a similar experience in university of california, berkeley.
        I was a MARCAD (Marine Cadet) and soon found that I could not stay in my Beloved Marine Corps
        without a college degree in specified subjects. I applied to the Naval Academy but was too old.

        Foreign commies were passing out freebies, cash, and STDs, and were well hooved in Porches.

        Dope and free sex were everywhere. If any of those hippes ever went to class it would surprise me. Mostly those rodents protested every thing American especially United States Marines. After putting three
        in the hospital my CO transferred me to a cow college. The cow college had not been contaminated back then and I was able to recruit some of the students.

        I did meet a few mu%%ies though. They were “royalty” and the sorriest, dirtiest , dumbest,
        band of thieves I had to date suffered. They killed a man in a drunken driving spree* and were deported (diplomatic immunity) so that story had a happy ending.

        * mu%%ies do drink and usually heavily. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/29ded079630364b8a658605473d13fb9fbba33e5843103328933879725b3366f.jpg

        My computer will not capitalize the names of the enemies of the United States especially enemies of The United States marine Corps.

  • Speak the Truth

    So, most Universities are fervently condemning capitalism. Who do these a**brains think show up at their grad job fairs, and hire their undereducated grads. Are they so delusional they think students / parents would continue to pay for tuition / fees / books if the vast majority of their grads became permanently unemployable.

    Does this explain the terrible customer service, work ethics, and integrity of many grads…..they’re just trying to subvert their evil, capitalist employer.

  • Liberalism has completely overtaken the vast majority of America’s colleges. One student at my own school stated that he felt it was easier for people to come out as gay than for people to come out as conservative, so hostile were most to his beliefs…

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    Any regressive progressive, any leftard who doesn’t like President Trump and VP Pence, can pack up and move lock, stock and commie manifesto, an move to El Chapo’s Mexico – for EIGHT LONG YEARS.

  • Satan is Allah

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come protest in Omaha, Ne. Me and the other “2A Folks” have a Big Surprise for You!
    What’s the use of having it if you never get to use it? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!?????
    Nebraskan Liberals are too smart. Maybe Soros can import some? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e190b8ad49a7b741d3e9b5079ee0c40e5d8e0b0f923ec626389f2cba1c853808.jpg

      Excellent……….

      I spent 27 years working for a railroad there (I am SURE you know which one). In 2001 there was a protest up at UNO and at the pedestrian overpass, they were burning flags, etc. so I put on my 1911 and headed there. I guess someone with a little intelligence prevailed, because when I got there they were long gone.
      Liberals are cowards, through and through, that is why you only see them in groups, never one-on-one. Same reason they support socialism.

  • Drew the Infidel

    What with Hillary getting her ass creamed in the general election and Trump’s intnention to apply successful business practices to the national government, the day of change has arrived with the left along with its lapdog media being left in the dust.

  • CC1980

    Withhold federal funding until all “teachers” involved are fired. Sick and tired of the commie left’s double standards, bigotry and outright hatred towards anyone who doesn’t comply with the liberal communist manifesto.

  • EmpatheticRN

    Pitt also hosted Bill Ayers, the domestic terrorist, a couple of years ago.

  • Jay Dillon

    If this isn’t lawsuit time, when would it be?

  • imwithstoopid

    At what point does one cross the line and preach / teach unAmerican / anti-American ideologies and and anti-Constitutional indoctrination.
    At what point will this kind of teaching be considered subversive and beyond free speech, and worthy of punishment?

  • Tatiana Covington

    Expel them all now.

  • George Soros paid protesters to attend, disrupt, and become violent at Trump rallies and continues to disrupt the peaceful transition of power by financing after-election protests. Now we have University of Pittsburgh professors in the School of Social Work giving extra credit for attending an anti-Trump march?? This is how social workers model behavior and help students cope with the stresses in their daily lives? NEWS FLASH: Donald Trump is our president now so grow up and do what the millions of Americans who voted for Romney did – accept reality and allow a peaceful transition of power.

  • Daniel Reichert

    Then that gives you bad credit!!!
