The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is offering a course this semester focusing on what it calls Trumpaganda.
Students will examine Trumps war on facts, press and democracy, according to the eight-week course title.
The class is offered through the universitys journalism program, according to the Daily Illini.
As a candidate, Trump employed the most common propaganda device, name-calling, to define, degrade, discredit and destroy his primary opponents as well as the fake news media, the course description reads.
Mira Sotirovic, associate professor in media, is teaching the class, and told the Daily Illini that students will look at President Trumps strategies for dealing with the press to look how propaganda can exist in a democracy.
Propaganda is effective only if it is concealed and camouflaged as something else, such as news, advertisements or PR releases, and it is critical to learn how to detect propaganda and recognize propagandistic features of any communication, including presidential, Sotirovic told the paper.
Sotirovic contributed a chapter to the scholarly text: Communication in the Age of Trump.
Just attend and keep feeding the teacher increasingly bizarre ideas about Trump. Bring a hidden cam and film the lectures to be posted on the internet at the end of the semester.
It would be an easy A.
After I have my A, send the teacher a note telling him he was played and tell him to check out his videos on youtube.
Sounds like this nutty professor is following her own advice. She is subjecting the students to propaganda they have to pay for. She is a true, dyed in the wool libtard. What--Odungo never used propaganda? That's all he was about! This idiot sounds like Trump was the only "evil president" to ever use propaganda. And let me tell you something--I think he uses far less of it than the despicable traitor Odungo, or his predecessor Bush, whose perfidy is only now becoming so apparent. Yet another university we sadly have to write off, for being more of a libtard indoctrination center rather than an actual center of learning.
What a load right out of the Democrat playbook, always accuse your opponent of the exact same thing you are doing. Distraction and deflection.
I must have missed their course on Obama Bull-Scat and Idiotic Statements.
I used to write for the DI. This is crap.
They are teaching Trumpaganda? Well these leftist supercillious twits need a course in Gynoganda and The Woodshed.
A class that is titled with name calling is about the evil in name calling.
Must be one of their univershitty courses. Send their students out into the world with “chitty” brains.
“As a candidate, Trump employed the most common propaganda device, name-calling, to define, degrade, discredit and destroy...probably won’t be many deplorables taking that class..... “
Ah, Intolerant in NJ. That is exactly why many deplorables should be taking the class! Give her quotes that are truly terrible and then apologize for giving her quotes that were actually given by (name any of any Democrat).
LOL Had a Sociology Professor who backed himself into a corner because I used this tactic in his class.
the name game
The very title of her course is propaganda....
the universitys journalism program
Total joke. Journalism has become a polemic.
Do I have to say it yet again?
Someone needs to take this professor out behind the woodshed...
I hope Mira Sotirovic gets her moronic ass kicked.
Take the course wearing a MAGA hat.
Hell, if this teacher is serious, then Mira should be able to do a whole Bachelor’s Degree (4 years) on the lies and Marxist Obamaganda of Barack, The One We’ve Been Waiting For.
John Kerry would only rate a single class while Al Gore would get at least a Junior College degree program in campaign lies and propaganda (Hey Al, the world is still here and turning while you are a fat, rich, white liberal fraud).
Alex, I’ll take the World for $1,000, please.
