Rachel Winter, a guest lecturer in the Games and Interactive Media program at the University of Central Florida, used the website to show students in her “front-end web design” class how to program a website.
Campus Reform obtained a screenshot of the web page, titled “The Social (ism) Hour”. It includes a brief history of socialism and some of the key figures of the socialist movement, such as Karl Marx, Eugene Debs, and Robert Owen.

“I really doubt anyone who has lived the experience and suffered under socialist regimes is putting pressure on it,” Suarez said. “Especially because most of the time, when socialist regimes are enacted, those who suffer the most are the teachers who see how their freedom of speech and their freedom of thought, and many other things that teachers should embrace and teach, are highly regulated. “
Suarez, who was in Venezuela until the age of 13, said students who believe in socialism should “pull out books” and look at countries where socialism has been tried.
