Washington and Lee University in Virginia is now offering a course in how to overthrow the state.
This is a perfect example of why higher education should not be free.
Free higher education means ‘taxpayer-funded’ higher education and taxpayers should not be forced to subsidize anti-American, radical politics being taught to our kids.

This Virginia University Offers Course On ‘How To Overthrow The State’ And Write Your Own Manifesto
Want a formal education that includes an in-depth analysis and application of Marxist principles? Look no further than the prestigious Washington and Lee University.
Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia is offering a course titled “How to Overthrow the State?” according to Breitbart News.
A course description on the university website describes the “Writing Seminar” as a way to “place each student at the head of a popular revolutionary movement aiming to overthrow a sitting government and forge a better society.”
“How will you attain power? How will you communicate with the masses? How do you plan on improving the lives of the people? How will you deal with the past?” the course description asks.
Class material will primarily focus on Marxist and revolutionary figures such as Franz Fanon, Che Guevara, and Mahatma Gandhi to “explore examples of revolutionary thought and action from across the Global South.”
Would this school have even thought of offering a course like this when Obama was president? Doubtful.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is also a historian. He spoke out against this on Twitter:
Washington and Lee University’s course on “how to overthrow the state” is one further sign of the insanity taking over higher education. The alumni should rise up and show how to overthrow a crazy college administration.

Colleges and universities in America are radicalizing young people.
This has got to change, even if it means colleges and universities go out of business.
