Snake Oil is snake no matter how you might package it. And Nikole is a snake oil salesman. Unfortunately her fawning sycophants and the ignorant student body don’t know that because they have been so poorly educated that they cannot recognize the so called idea without an agenda is actually a Marxist ploy right out of Saul Alinsky’s play book.

Nikole is a Marxist and her only agenda is to chip away at the foundational elements of the Republic. She would like to write history but Nikole knows that objective is not attainable just yet, so she will be satisfied with have you question the history that she and her followers intend to change when your mind is ready..
