Cornell University is now offering a course comparing President Donald Trump’s “xenophobic nationalism” versus Barack Obama’s “pragmatic cosmopolitanism.”
The course, far-left Professor Peter Katzenstein’s Government 2817, is titled “America Confronts the World.” Previous courses offered by him include “Globalization,” and “International Political Economy.”
Katzenstein’s latest course description claims it will outline the differences between the 44th president and the 45th, with the first half seeking to “understand that diversity in American politics and foreign policy viewed through the prisms of region, ideology, region, race, class and religion.”
“Donald Trump and Barak [sic] Obama give us two visions of America and of the world: xenophobic nationalism and pragmatic cosmopolitanism. America and the world are thus constituted by great diversity,” the course description reads.
The second half of the course will be focused on “American engagement of different world regions and civilizations: Europe, Russia, North America, Latin America, China, Japan, India and the Middle East. U.S. hard power and American soft power find expression in far-reaching processes of American-infused globalization and U.S.-centered anti-Americanism reverberating around the world.”
Meanwhile, across the country in California, students at the University of California, Los Angeles, are being invited by their professors to engage in a weekly protest against President Trump.
In a bold move, 22 faculty members from the university published an open letter in The Daily Bruin urging students to “bear witness” to “the Orwellian nightmare” that is Trump’s presidency.
“We gather there to bear witness to the Orwellian nightmare that is the presidency of Donald Trump, and to let the world know that we cannot let this become normal,” history professor Teofilo Ruiz wrote in the letter. “We demonstrate because we fear that the mendacious statements, outrageous policies, and sheer administrative incompetence of the Trump administration will eventually exhaust the majority of the people in this country, causing them to accept as normal what should never be the nature of our civic and political life under any circumstance.”
Campus Reform has pointed out that Ruiz was honored by President Obama with a National Humanities Medal.
Ruiz goes on to demand that “no human is ever ‘illegal.’”
“We need to proclaim that no human is ever ‘illegal’ and that we are best when we accept the differences of others and embrace them as contributors to our society,” he argued. “Differences are not to be feared. We celebrate differences of opinions, race, ethnicity and national origins. Students, above all people, should know and support these points of view.”
The globalist professor concludes by asking students to “fight with us for your future” and “bring signs to articulate your opposition.”
“Even if you don’t have words printed on paper or cardboard, come stand with us for a few minutes,” he wrote.
How can a conservative student expect to have their voice heard if 22 professors are actively protesting their beliefs?
If these faculty members are so concerned about the country becoming “Orwellian,” perhaps they should stop vilifying anyone who dares to hold beliefs and ideas different than their own.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
