My WND Exclusive – For Teachers, Ideology Trumps Intelligence

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Some of the wackiest places on the planet today are American schools. Literally every day of the year I have the opportunity to write about some liberal foolishness happening on a college campus or public secondary school, should I choose. There are several excellent websites devoted to nothing but leftism in education, and they are never wanting for fresh material.

But this is to be expected in the today’s world of academia. Colleges and universities pump out radical leftist activists and send them out to pose as teachers and administrators. They are the ones who teach little Johnny and Janey that students should expect to spend their formative years, and beyond, safe from conflict and controversy – and that anyone who disrupts the physical and mental safety of the delicate flowers can and should be dealt with harshly.

And that’s what happened to Sutter Middle School history teacher Woody Hart in Rancho Cordova, California. He dared to challenge the new convention of a “safe” learning environment by displaying a Confederate flag in his classroom. What a racist provocateur!

What … you mean he wasn’t purposely trying to upset his students “of color”? Umm – no. Mr. Hart is a history teacher. The Confederate flag was displayed with the Union flag during a lesson on the CIVIL WAR. reported that the context for the display was immaterial. Mr. Hart would have to be dealt with.

“The Folsom Cordova Unified School District posted a statement to its Facebook page Wednesday acknowledging the flag ‘was found across the room from a Civil War Union flag, potentially in preparation of a history activity’ but removed the flag because ‘regardless of context, to many of our students, families and staff, the Confederate flag is a racist symbol of hate.’”

Potentially in preparation?! It was a lesson on the Civil War! Which flags should he have displayed? Maybe the Mexican flag and the Rainbow flag? Would that make the children feel safer?
