Faculty members at a Washington college are being encouraged to award students extra credit for attending a “Day of Resistance” featuring a slew of events condemning the Trump administration.
The event, sponsored in part by Shoreline Community College’s Federation of Teachers, the union representing the school's faculty, was advertised in a faculty-wide email by English Professor DuValle Daniel, who asked her peers to consider bringing one of their classes to the May Day program.
The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Social Work encouraged its professors to offer students extra credit to participate in an anti-Trump rally in downtown Pittsburgh.

So ... ONE group at ONE college is involved?
You have an issue with Americans expressing their right to assemble, organize and speak?
Further, are you really surprised that many highly-educated folks are opposed to Trump's policies, etc.?

I don't think that students should be getting extra credit for slamming the person in office of the president of the United States. This kind of action will set precedence, what happens when a Democrat gets in the Whitehouse next time. If this would have happened if Hillary was put into the white house, she would have shut down funding to the college till the people running it were removed. Trump is too much of a putts with this kind of stuff, the far left Democrats would not stand for this.

Sorry but you know thats ridiculous. If Hilary had won, the Leftists College professors would be singing her praises! They NEVER say anything in opposition to Democrat politicians, unless of course, they aren't sufficeintly leftist.
