It’s no secret that higher education in the United States has drifted far to the left, but a recent incident at the University of Minnesota is raising eyebrows.
In a viral video, medical school students can be seen reciting a ‘woke’ pledge that is steeped in left wing talking points about social justice, but that’s not even the worst part.
The thing that has people talking is that it looks and sounds like a religious ceremony.
Breitbart News has details:
Minnesota Medical Students Swear Oath to Fight ‘White Supremacy,’ ‘Honor All Indigenous Ways of Healing’
Medical students at the University of Minnesota pledged to “honor all indigenous ways of healing historically marginalized by Western medicine” and fight “white supremacy, colonialism, gender binary, ableism and all forms of oppression.”
The move has many questioning whether the university is embracing shamanism as equally legitimate to Western science.
Here’s part of the text of the pledge:
With gratitude, we, the students of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Medical School Class of 2026, stand here today among our friends, families, peers, mentors and communities who have supported us in reaching this milestone.
Our institution is located on Dakota land. Today many indigenous people throughout the state of Minnesota, including the Dakota and the Ojibwe call the Twin Cities home.
We also recognize this acknowledgment is not enough. We commit to uprooting the legacy and perpetuation of structural violence deeply embedded within the health care system.
We recognize inequities built by past and present traumas rooted in white supremacy, colonialism, the gender binary, ableism and all forms of oppression.
As we enter this profession with opportunity for growth, we commit to promoting a culture of antiracism, listening and amplifying voices for positive change.
