Schools are Becoming Increasingly Worthless

from the Federalist:

Your Kids Would Be Better Off Feral Than Going To Schools That Make Them Anti-American Racists

Critical Race Theory in a Nutshell

State-sponsored instruction that makes your child a dogmatic racist relativist is not worth any benefit you feel schools give in return. Not a single one. Being Mowgli would be better.

To obtain or keep teaching licenses, Illinois now requires all K-12 teachers to indoctrinate their students in critical race theory, destructive lies about sex and gender, and other leftist mind poison. The rules clearly communicate that in Illinois public schools are no longer places to learn, but places children will be lied to, manipulated, and warehoused as wards of a corrupt and malevolent state. And this kind of schooling is spreading nationwide.

Every decent parent, family, and church should refuse to allow this kind of instruction to be inflicted upon the children in their care, and assume personal responsibility for securing their genuine education outside such anti-public schools. Those who do not are abdicating their sacred duty to teach their children to love and know the truth.

The new Illinois rules require teachers to demonstrate that they “embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives.” It clearly specifies that these include incorporating into all their teaching and curricula neo-Marxist falsehoods about race and sex, and actively discriminate based on religion, viewpoint, and race. The rules require teachers to:

  • Directly oppose and undermine the concept of objective truth: “Understand and value… that there is not one ‘correct’ way of doing or understanding something, and that what is seen as ‘correct’ is most often based on our lived experiences.” This is an exercise in forcing people to affirm two contradictory things, as the rest of the requirements are extremely dogmatic, not open to any other “way of doing or understanding something.”

 

  • Treat themselves and students as a determined product of their race, sex, and sexual behavior: “Recognize how their identity (race/ethnicity, national origin, language, sex and gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical/developmental/emotional ability, socioeconomic class, religion, etc.) affects their perspectives and beliefs about pedagogy and students.”

Is the Left Wising Up about the Politics of Lockdowns/Shutdowns?

by: Brent Smith

Well this is astounding. When the leftist media, as demonstrated by the Los Angeles Times, begins complaining about the continued Covid school lockdowns/shutdowns, it may be a sign of the apocalypse, or maybe the coming of the twelve Imam.

Or maybe some on the left are just awakening to the fact that the lockdowns and shutdowns are more are product of politics then of actually science.

Nah! I’ll go with the apocalypse narrative.

Playing Politics with Our Children

from the Blaze:

‘Really f***ed up’: Progressive writer blasts Democrats for playing politics, cowering to unions, and ignoring science in refusal to reopen school

‘I will never understand how the left in this country has decided that advocating for putting kids first is somehow right-wing’

Parents across the country have been clamoring for state governments to reopen schools, yet in blue states those calls are largely being ignored, while red states are far more likely to have reopened schools.

The Democratic intransigence on opening schools has not escaped Americans’ attention — both on the political right and left. read more

A Celebration of Black Radical Communist Angela Davis – At a Middle School

by: Brent Smith

Well this sounds at least as bad as it truly is. The indoctrination of our youth continues and likely will now go into hyper-drive, or perhaps even ludicrous-speed, now that the leftists have taken control of the national stage, and thus the U.S. Department of Education.

The Blaze article below uses the term “alleged” on more than one occasion, which means that the story has yet to be confirmed for sure. However, it’s also one of the instances where you just read and say, yeah, I can believe they would do that, knowing how radical and pro-Marxist a lot of the public school teaching profession has become. Don’t worry about kids not reading or writing or becoming proficient in math. No, let’s have a black power rally instead.

And a student rally for the black communist radical Angela Davis? Please! But hey – why not – after all, she did endorse Joe Biden.

Funny Thing – The CDC Director doesn’t Speak for the CDC

by: Brent Smith

For a year, the CDC has been the benchmark, the Granite Sentinel of “settled science” regarding Covid-19. Their word was gospel. Now this.

As you read the following article, remind yourself – perhaps even repeat it as a mantra: “This is not about the students – this is not even about the teachers – this is as it has been from the start, only about the Teacher’s Union.” And maybe you can add, if it’s not too cumbersome, that the White House and democrat Party are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Teacher’s Union, the most powerful and influential union possibly in existence today.

Whatever they dictate to the White House is what the White House will parrot. So Let it be Written – So Let it be Done! read more

Apparently now, Greek and Roman Classics are Symbols of Whiteness

by: Brent Smith

Sorry – no Audio Version as YouTube “BLOCKED” it.

I read an article in the New York Times last week that I found both fascinating and disappointing. Although, I must admit, the disappointing part was wholly expected.

It is entitled, “He Wants to Save Classics From Whiteness. Can the Field Survive?”
“Dan-el Padilla Peralta thinks classicists should knock ancient Greece and Rome off their pedestal — even if that means destroying their discipline.”

Gee – I wonder where this is going? read more

Let’s Just Admit it – Everything is Racist!

Now for my best Andy Rooney.

Did you ever notice that the people who cry racism the loudest and most often are white college professors. It’s almost as if they were trained in school to become Guilty White Leftists. It’s uncanny. And here’s yet another.

from Campus Reform:

According to this professor, ‘Science, statistics, and technology are all inherently racist’

Pay Off Student debt – Mike Rowe says Not So Fast

by: Brent Smith

Most of us know at least one sorry soul who exited college with a massive debt load. But despite our esoteric want for some form of government payoff of their debt, the heart can’t overwhelm the head.

Individually we all wish that the friend or relative could have their debt erased, but as nation, we realize that we can’t just willy-nilly pick winners and losers – like our friend or family member will be made whole, but others are on their own.

So the only fair alternative is for government to just butt-out. It may seem uncaring, but that’s the way it has to be.

Many would say that it’s just unfair to saddle our young people with that huge yoke of debt, but it’s more unfair to force others to pay for it.

Thankfully I have one who is much more intelligent than I who agrees.

Mike Rowe, of Dirty Jobs fame, is that more intelligent man.

from the Blaze:

Mike Rowe exposes the student debt cancellation scam

‘Tuition will never come back to earth, if we bail out those who borrowed more than they could repay’

In another articulate and insightful Facebook post, Mike Rowe of “Dirty Jobs” fame explained why he doesn’t support student loan forgiveness and why he pities those who were “possibly sold a bill of goods” by going into debt for a four-year college degree.

“Lots of people on this page have asked me to comment on the various proposals to forgive hundreds of billions of dollars in student debt. Many it seems, suspect that I’ll be supportive of these efforts, since I’ve written at length about the outrageous rise of college tuition, and the scandalous ways in which hundreds of thousands of students have been conned into borrowing ridiculous sums of money to purchase degrees that never lead to an actual job,” Rowe wrote. “Well, for the record, I do not support student loan forgiveness.”

Democratic politicians such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) have recently championed the idea of canceling up to $50,000 in federal student loan debt for each individual with government loans. Rowe argues that such a policy is fundamentally unfair, “especially to the millions of Americans who have paid their college debts, and sacrificed much to do so.” He also says that American colleges and universities will be incentivized to increase their already skyrocketing tuition rates because now the government is sending a signal that it will pay off student loan bills even if students can’t.

Schools Never had to be Shutdown! They’ve Known all Along

by: Brent Smith

If this isn’t criminal, please tell me what constitutes criminal behavior. Tucker Carlson exposes the fact that these leftist power-mad coronavirus dictator want-to-be’s have all along been using our children as pawns in their game of COVID lockdowns. The likelihood of a child dying from COVID is almost Zero! And the odds of a teacher recovering from COVID remain at over 99.5% (under age 70) to 99.98% (under age 50). And this data isn’t anything new. These “experts” who’ve been scaring the crap out of parents have known this since last April.

Our supposed experts like Saint Fauci have known almost from the start, or at least quite early on, that the threat of coronavirus to children under the age of 19 is practically zero and that despite all the panic, it has been known for many months that kids don’t spread it to adults, so their teachers can’t contract it from little Johnny or Janey in the classroom. read more

Who is Student Loan Forgiveness Really For?

by: Brent SmithSo you think the democrats are on the side of the people. After all, the Biden team and Congressional dems agree, that universal healthcare will help you, a $15 per hour minimum / living wage is what is needed and of course, how many Americans are beyond struggling under the crushing weight of student debt.

They’re doing all this for you, the voter. And as thanks, you voted for the Biden/Harris ticket, because you trust Uncle Joe and the democrats to be the straight shooters they are.

But are they? Is their plan to forgive student loan debt for you, the people, the voters, or is it rather for leftist members of Congress who, by dizzying coincidence, are still saddled with college debt despite their relatively exorbitant annual salary of $174,000.

Gee, I wonder. read more
