If you needed any further proof that higher education in America has become nothing more than left wing indoctrination, here you go. This happened at Iowa State University.
The College Fix reported:
Students instructed to write essay on 9/11 from terrorists’ perspective
A recent assignment in an international studies course at Iowa State University asked students to write a historical account of the 9/11 terrorist attacks from the perspective of Al-Qaeda.
“Write a paper that gives a historical account of 911 from the perspective of the terrorist network. In other words, how might Al-Qaeda or a non-Western historian describe what happened,” stated the assignment, a copy of which was obtained by The College Fix.
“Don’t worry about the fact you don’t agree with the terrorists, the point of the exercise is to consider completely different perspectives,” the assignment adds.
A university spokesman told The Fix the assignment doesn’t diminish the “tragic events” of 9/11 and equates the essay prompt to work undertaken by America’s diplomatic and intelligence agencies.
How do you think the families of people who died on September 11th would feel about this? Did the professor stop to ponder that question even once?
It’s hard to think of an assignment on the subject of 9/11 that would be more tasteless and insensitive than this.
