Rise Up CA student groupA college in California is the latest school to push for controversial, left-wing demands

Student organization "Rise Up" is making demands of San Mateo's three community college campuses, reports campus watchdog Campus Reform.

The left-wing students (pictured above) are demanding that faculty member undergo "micro-aggression" workshops and investigate curriculum for what they call "whitewashing," among other demands.

 Campus Reform reports the San Mateo students drew up their list of demands, including a call for free tuition, after Donald Trump's election.

The students of "Rise Up" have embraced a "hard-left, radical, progressive view," warns Horace Cooper of the Project 21 black leadership network.

Student protests are nothing new for left-wing California. The Golden State is infamous for its '60s radical student groups, many of them communist-led, that called for destroying capitalism and the United States. 

Rise Up's own Facebook page appears to show Hispanic students who state they are alarmed by the "new socio-political climate," a reference to Trump's election, and are demanding "sanctuary campuses" for illegal immigrants.

Such radical demands are imported to San Mateo from radical forces outside the school, Cooper says, and it's important for the administration to stop them.

"We're talking about a nationwide push, quote, 'in the name of student rights' to radically change and undermine the way our institutions work," he says.
