This fall, freshman students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill can take an English course called "Literature of 9/11" that explores the 9/11 attacks from the perspective of radical Islamists.

The reading assignments for the controversial class present terrorists in a sympathetic light and justify their actions as fighting against an imperialistic American regime.

Joe Connor, the cousin of 9/11 victim Steve Schlag, said on "Fox and Friends" that the fact that this course is being taught at a public university is crazy and outrageous.

"Our country's gone backwards. We're upside down," Connor said. "They try to justify this as 'they're just doing what they think is right for their people' ... How dare they."

Connor said that instead of focusing on the terrorists who carried out the terrible attacks, professors and students should focus on the 3,000 innocent people who lost their lives.

"Each of them had a story, each of them was a person and each of them left a family. And that's what's being left out by this professor."
