Students Should Blame School District for Unsafe Conditions

from Michelle Malkin:

Look homeward, “change agents:” My #nationalwalkoutday message

Here is my homework assignment for all the fist-clenching, gun control-demanding teenagers walking out of classrooms this week (and next week and next month) to protest school shootings:

Ask not what the rest of the country can do for your local school’s safety; ask what your local school boards and superintendents have been failing to do for you.

Chances are, the adults closest to you — those most directly responsible for your security — have been shirking their primary duties, squandering scarce resources and deflecting blame. read more

NWA has a New Meaning on College Campus

NWA used to mean something else.

Ni**az Wit Attitudes


from Campus Reform:

Texas students launch ‘No Whites Allowed’ magazine

  • A group of students at the University of Texas, San Antonio plans to start publishing a “No Whites Allowed” (NWA) magazine.
  • White people are welcome to attend the launch party Thursday night, but while their support is “appreciated,” the founders insist that “it’s a zine for QPOC and by QPOC [queer persons of color].”

Podcast – Breaking Down the Florida School Shooting

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The High School massacre in Florida could have been prevented, or at the very least drastically mitigated. Nickolas Cruz was well known as a deranged dirt bag to all at the school and the Broward County Sheriffs office. We know this, as it has been stated on a number of occasions and by countless people at the school.

Yet he was allowed to enter one of the buildings, kill 17 people and exit unharmed, easily avoiding the ONE armed police officer on the rather sizable campus.

So permit me the opportunity to break it all down and logically explain the reasons why we need to harden schools with real first responders. read more

Christian Group Denied Access – School District Covers it Up

from One News Now:

Ky. schools cover-up denying Bible club access exposed

Good News ClubsA Christian legal group issued the Boone County School District (BCSD) an official warning last week that it is discriminating against an evangelical Bible organization by refusing it equal access to school facilities for a K–5 after-school Bible club.

Attorneys with Liberty Counsel sent school officials a demand letter arguing that the district’s facilities use policy is consistent with equal access laws, and therefore cannot be used to keep Child Evangelism Fellowship’s (CEF) after-school Good News Clubs from meeting on the campuses of Stevens Elementary School and Goodridge Elementary School.

District cover-up? read more

California Hates Homeschooling

from Western Journalism:

California Presumes Homeschooling Parents Are Child Abusers, Seeks Invasive New Restrictions

As California lawmakers continue their track-record of controversial decisions, one announcement in particular has caused an outcry for its overreaching presumption: that all homeschoolers must also be child abusers.

According to The Washington Examiner, the plan set out by lawmakers would be to force parents into proving to the government that they are, in fact, fit to be a parent.

The homeschooling parent — per legal requirement — would have to meet the government’s required checklist via home visits, interviews, and other oversights, effectively increasing the burden on the parent to prove themselves parentally fit. read more

A University Dream Act

from Campus Reform:

  • A University of New Mexico professor included a section on her English Composition II syllabus labeled “Clean Dream Act Now.”
  • In it, Professor Brenna Gomez pledges that she “will not disclose the immigration status of any student…unless required by a warrant,” and will offer “immigration-related accommodations” to all students who need them.

A University of New Mexico English professor included a pledge on her syllabi to protect and “accommodate” illegal immigrant students who take her courses.

“As an educator, I fully support the rights of undocumented students to an education and to live free from the fear of deportation,” Professor Brenna Gomez wrote on her English Composition II syllabus, in a section labeled “Clean Dream Act Now.”

“As an educator, I fully support the rights of undocumented students to an education and to live free from the fear of deportation.”    

“I pledge that I will not disclose the immigration status of any student who shares this information with me unless required by a warrant, and I will work with students who require immigration-related accommodations,” the statement continued.

No More Besties

In 1968 singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson wrote and performed a theme song for a television program entitled, “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father,” starring the original Bruce Banner, Bill Bixby. The song was called, “Best Friend.”

Little did Harry know at the time, but his song should have been entitled, “Best Friends are bad and Exclusionary.” At least that’s the way one psychologist sees it.

In an article for US News & World Report, Dr. Barbara Greenberg asks: “Should Schools Ban Kids From Having Best Friends?”

Yes, you read that right. And just like most wacky leftist ideas, this too originates in Europe. “I am always fascinated by trends. And I am especially intrigued by the emerging trend among European schools, and now some American schools as well, to ban best friends,” writes the good Doctor. She adds that, “This, to me, seems like a Herculean task. The notion of choosing best friends is deeply embedded in our culture. Nonetheless, there is, in my opinion, merit to the movement to ban having best friends.”

Can you see where this is going? It may seem like just a silly notion, but it’s not. It’s actually part of something much larger and much more disturbing. read more

California History Textbooks Celebrate the LGBT Movement

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

It is being reported that, “the California board of education brought to an end a decades-long campaign to emphasize lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender historical figures in state social-studies / history textbooks, approving K-8 volumes that make identity politics of all kinds the core of the subject.”

So grades K-8 will now be learning alternative history, of all the significant achievements of America’s homosexuals and cross-dressers. As a parent, I can think of nothing more enlightening than to teach my five year old that Ralph down the street, who dresses like a woman, is historically significant.

California State Senator Mark Leno, who represents San Francisco (where else) says that, “Most textbooks don’t include any historical information about the LGBT movement, which has great significance to both California and U.S. history. We are censoring the history lessons,” denying students “the facts of the struggle for equal rights.” Really – name three. And the annual gay-pride parade doesn’t count as being historically significant.

Coincidently, Leno is running for Mayor of San Francisco, but I’m sure this has nothing to do with his most recent push for LGBT significance. And last I checked, everyone in this country already has equal rights. Not special rights – just equal rights. read more

Video Podcast – Civility on Campus is Racist

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Two professors at the University of Northern Iowa have theorized that being civil in college classrooms is a form of racism and that such behavior reinforces “white racial power.”

The two also claim that attempting to “treat everyone the same” is a way to “erase racial identity.” They call this Caucasian dysfunction, “whiteness informed civility,” which according to the professors is also a form of racism.

The bottom line appears, at least to these two, to be that being uncivil to persons of color is racist, and being civil is also.

So what is a white college student to do? By the way – both these professors appear to be white. read more

What if someday, I decide I’m sick of the grind. I’m tried of working and earning a living. I just want to be taken care of. Heck, at this point I’m even too lazy to go to the welfare office and fill out all that paperwork in order to collect free stuff. I’m just done with all the responsibility of being a societal human.

May I then self identify as some sort of unique zoo animal? What animal? I don’t know – I’m questioning. But I will get a place to sleep, three squares a day, and my very own habitat to stretch my legs, should I desire. I mean – why the heck not? Of course this sounds completely ridiculous, or it would have maybe a decade or so ago. Now, I’m thinking it doesn’t sound that far-fetched.

After all, we humans are now able to run the gamut of self-identification. It started simply enough. We were male or female. But that was too simplistic. Then we expanded to heterosexual and homosexual. Still not good enough. If you are a homosexual female you’re not just homosexual, but lesbian. And because homosexual developed a negative connotation, it was changed to gay. I guess because homosexual men are also happy people. I don’t know.

Still, this did not define us all, so the acronym LGBT was coined. A person could comfortably identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. However, some in our society still felt left out – and we sure can’t have that. So the letter scramble continues, giving us the most inclusive acronym to date – LGBTTQQIP2SAA. read more
