Che and FidelWould you like to know how to overthrow the government? A university in Virginia is offering a course, for credit, that will teach you how.

Washington and Lee University, located in Lexington, is offering the course, “How to Overthrow the State.”

The fall semester course, worth three credits, is offered as part of the writing seminar that requires three essays and a “Manifesto” from a would-be revolutionary leader.

The course is taught by Robert Gildner, an assistant history professor.

The fall semester course promises to place each student “at the head of a popular revolutionary movement” with the goal of overthrowing the current government to create a “better society.”

Vince Ellison of Project 21 says the course theme is the inevitable result of Leftists who now control the Democrat Party.

"They admit that we have the churches,” he observes, “but they have the colleges and universities. And they're going to use them."

The eye-opening college course has been noticed by national media, including Fox News and Breitbart, which predictably ran with the story angle of another far-left university preparing future communists paid for by Mom and Dad. 

The president of Washington and Lee, William Dudley, was forced to respond to the news stories and claimed the course has been “distorted, sensationalized, and turned into political fodder.”

The fall course comes at the same time, however, the American public is witnessing college-educated adults march in the streets to condemn capitalism and police, praise communism and socialism, pass out Molotov cocktails as part of their revolution, and oppose ownership of private property.
