The Islamization of American Schools

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Apparently American Muslims are not American. Oh, they may think they are, but this is evidently not the case. Normal Americans go to work every day and send their normal American kids off to school. They don’t consider themselves particularly special. They don’t ask others for a carve out or to be celebrated as being different. They are just Americans.

I’m sure many American Muslims think this way. I’m sure they don’t consider themselves special. They want to be treated like everyone else. They say they don’t wish to be treated differently than any other American. But is this really true?

Evidently not, at least far as the school administrators at the New York World School of Inquiry,
in Rochester NY are concerned. A request from a single Muslim student prompted Principal Sheela Webster to host a “World Hijab Day event the week of February 1 which ‘encouraged girls to wear the Muslim religious head covering.’”

And what made “World Hijab Day” so much more special – not a single parent was notified ahead of the event. They found out about it on the news, which being New York, probably breathlessly reported on it, extolling the schools diversity and inclusion. read more

From The Rooney Rule to the Looney Rule

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In 2003 the National Football League instituted a hiring practice called the Rooney Rule. The rule was named for Dan Rooney, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and chairman of the NFL diversity committee and a big liberal. The rule mandates that every NFL team interview at least one minority candidate for a head coaching and executive positions. By minority, they actually only mean black applicants.

The reason for this mandate is that about 70% of all NFL players are black whereas virtually all head coaches and G.M.s are white. To Rooney and the diversity committee, this would not do. It was like black players doing their white masters bidding all over again. This new rule was a perfect solution for the guilty white liberal owners.

After its institution, the rule was immediately criticized by activists and academia that it was mere window dressing as it only applied to head coaching positions, not to assistants. At no time has anyone on the committee pondered the merit based system of hiring that has worked for so many years and produced some of sports greatest head coaches. read more

Podcast – Time For Trump To Grow Up – Students Forcibly Immersed In Islam

In this episode I’ll be speaking about an article written by one of my heroes, Thomas Sowell. He rightly asks if we should trust Trump to be President, considering his demonstrably juvenile behavior over the past several months and his apparent limited understanding of the office of President.

In segment two I discuss a former marine and his wife who filed a lawsuit against their daughter’s school for forcing her class to study the Islamic religion in a history class, while virtually neglecting all other religions.

Students Take on Liberal Academic Establishment

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The more things don’t change, the more they stay the same, as another college demonstrates its idea of campus diversity.

We’ve all been preached at by every diversity advocacy group from blacks, to Muslims, to feminists, to LGBT equality groups and more. Every special interest on campus has to be equally represented – all except Christians, whites and conservatives. Some may consider this to be redundant.

The University of Massachusetts at Amherst demonstrated recently just what diversity looks like on the average college campus. UMass – Amherst has approximately 1300 faculty members. Why is this important?

Well, a student run debate club hosts different events throughout the school year. The problem developed during a recent debate when the club needed to find a faculty member to present a conservative point of view. Out of 1300 teachers and professors, the club could not find one willing or able to represent conservatives. Not one! read more

One College is Fighting Back Against White Privilege

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Most Americans, save for the various teachers unions, complain about the pitiful state of public education in our country. The Left complains about the lack of funding – too much is apparently still not enough – and the Right complains of oppressive regulation.

Education used to be a relatively straight forward and easy process. It was reading, writing and arithmetic, with maybe a little history, the Constitution and some Latin thrown in for context. Kids learned what they needed to advance to the next level.

Then progressives got a hold of education and it all went to crap. And every year that goes by it get’s a little worse – kids become less educated in the things they may actually need. It’s gotten so bad that your average college senior probably could not pass an Eighth grade exam from the turn of last century (late 19th century to early 20th).

Education, particularly higher education, has been ruined by progressives and political correctness. Today, it’s appears more important to teach kids to get in touch with their feelings than be able to properly draft a letter or speak the King’s English.

And there is a reason why we shouldn’t learn the “King’s” English. That would be racist, being that English kings have always been white, thus would promote white privilege. read more

Podcast – Mass Assault of Women in Germany by Muslim Migrants

In this episode I discuss Germany’s massive Muslim immigrant problem where almost 70 percent of all migrants are Muslim men. These innocent refugees travel through German cities at night in gangs of hundreds and sometimes 1000 or more, preying on young German women. These gangs of Muslim men chase down unsuspecting girls, corner them, rob and viciously assault them – and its all thanks to the welcoming policies of Chancellor Angela Merkel and her desire to let them all in. This is what may be in store for America if refugees are allowed to pour into our country. read more

Leftists Capitulate to Other Leftists Over Transgendering

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I guess Americans aren’t taking to the Transgender agenda quite the way leftists had hoped. I guess they thought Bruce Jenner would just trot (or skip) out in a dress, everyone would fawn over him and revel in our collective enlightenment. Some did – most didn’t.

Well, I suppose it’s just not happening as they thought, or at least not as quickly. Americans may tolerate the rather unconventional world of transgenderism, but we just don’t seem to be embracing it the way the left demands.

And because we’re not voluntarily progressive enough, some policies need to be changed to nudge us toward enlightenment.

The YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties in Tacoma Washington has quietly changed their locker room policy  in response to a complaint from two members. This particular Y has 140,000 members. So two people complain which results in a massive and sweeping policy change – for two out of 140,000. That seems reasonable. It’s also becoming all too typical, as a tiny segment of society understands that if you make enough noise or threaten a leftist with not being progressive enough, they will fold every time. read more

Muslim Students Learn From the Best

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It seems Black Lives Matter and black student organizations are not just racial antagonists – they are also teachers. It seems other “oppressed” groups are taking what they’ve learned by watching the race hustlers and applied the same tactics to further their own causes.

The Muslim Student Association (MSA) of San Diego State University (SDSU) evidently learned from other radical student organizations like Concerned Student 1950. Back in November, I chronicled the latest exploits of this University of Missouri gang, where, the day after I posted my article, they forced both the white University president and chancellor to resign, while making ridiculous demands on the school. All from trumped up and entirely unproven charges of racism on campus. You may read about it here.

The MSA “is demanding that administrators combat Islamophobia by developing a ‘zero tolerance policy explicitly for Islamophobic speech and actions.’”  It’s nice to see the MSA has the proper reverence for American’s right to freedom of speech, although it sounds more like a devotion to something else entirely – something which is wholly incompatible with the Constitution and American values. It sounds more like a devotion to Shariah law. read more

Podcast – Hitler Autobiography to be Rereleased – The Mummers Poke Fun at Bruce Jenner

In this episode I discuss the decision, in Germany, to re-release Hitler’s autobiography Mein Kampf and what effect it may have on the German people. Detractors say the book should be banned and that it might further hatred of the many refugees now in Germany and give rise to a furthering in popularity of the neo-nationalism.

I also discuss the hot water the Mummers Parade in Philadelphia is in over a group called Finnegan New Years Brigade Comic Club. They made fun of Bruce Jenner’s transformation into Caitlyn and that’s a no-no. But I think it’s hilarious! read more

Podcast – Justice Scalia is a Racist – Democrats Support Refugee Resettlement – A Ramadan Christmas

In this episode I discuss Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s disagreement to affirmative action as a method of college admission. He argues that is it actually detrimental to black students – which makes him a racist.

Democrats support refugee resettlement from a fictional Middle Eastern city. What a bunch of rubes!

Yes, it’s a Ramadan Christmas, at least it was for those at Blaine High School in Minnesota, where a choir teacher made the children perform a song about Ramadan at the Christmas concert. read more
