According to The Daily Caller, it ain’t cheap to attend Wisconsin’s Beloit College. A single year at the liberal arts institution will cost a student (or, more accurately, his parents) a whopping $57,142. And what will these students be getting in exchange for this exorbitant tuition? Why, they’ll be #gettingwoke, naturally. Put another way, they’ll be learning how to effectively protest in the age of the racist, sexist, all around EEEEVIL administration of Donald J. Trump.
No refunds, parents.
According to College Reform, Beloit College has published what they’re calling a GetWoke syllabus to help students engage in “activism and organizing during 45.”
From College Reform:
The syllabus was created by the school’s diversity office for its upcoming “#GetWoke lecture series,” providing a “general overview of white supremacy, fascism, race and racism, and nation-state.”
“Since the election of the 45th President, the United States has seen a rise in the number of protests and organized forms of resistance to the current administration,” the syllabus notes, adding that “since the 2016 Presidential election, the question of what it means to protest and organize in the current administration is pressing.”
The syllabus then suggests that protesting is “at the heart of what it means to demand the state sees you when you sit at the margins of society,” encouraging students to listen to protest songs such as KRS One’s “Sound of Da Police,” or read texts like “Social Justice Organizing” for inspiration.
If the rich kids attending classes at Beloit can’t get their fill of left-wing activism from the #GetWoke syllabus, they’re encouraged to check out related programs such as the “Syllabus for White People to Educate Themselves.” That one is specially made “by white people for other white people” to teach them everything they need to know to have conversations about racism in the age of Trump. We’re sure the materials will be highly nuanced.
We suppose that parents sending their kids to this school probably know what they’re getting their children into, but it baffles us that anyone who was smart enough to make enough money to afford a college like Beloit would want to waste it on such a esoteric, left-wing education. Guess it proves that intellect and wealth don’t always go hand in hand. Or, at least, common sense and the ability to make money don’t.
Or, more likely, the majority of these students are going to graduate from Beloit with hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loans before going to work as community organizers, small-town city council positions, and, inevitably, professors at left-wing indoctrination institutions. The cycle continues.
