Another Teacher Exposed as a Leftist Radical

In the days of old, when I was in school, I carried with me a small audio recorder. Back then, we had these mini cassette tapes. Many people used them for dictation. I took mine to class. When the teacher began to speak on a topic I thought might be of particular import, I switched it on while I was taking notes, just in case I missed something.

It was no smartphone, but still a very handy tool. Not once do I recall a teacher or professor telling me to “turn that thing off” – that I didn’t have permission to record in class. In fact, most thought it a pretty good idea.

That was then – when teachers were paid to teach, not advocate. To this day, I don’t believe I knew the political affiliation of a single one. Doubtful a student today could make the same claim.

Today is an entirely different atmosphere, in college, and increasingly in high school classrooms. It seems today, teachers are doing everything but teaching. They join and sometimes organize protests, marches and sit-ins. They advocate for every wacky liberal cause imaginable, and from the sound of some, they appear to not know enough to teach the subject for which they are being paid. But really, many are being paid to indoctrinate – not teach. read more

Threatening Letter Sent to Mosques Most Likely Another Hoax

Yesterday Salon.com reported that a letter was sent to three California Mosques threatening violence against Muslims.

The report stated that, “the same handwritten, photocopied letter was sent last week to the Islamic Center of Long Beach, the Islamic Center of Claremont and the Evergreen Islamic Center in San Jose.”

The letter, addressed to “the children of Satan,” begins by describing “You Muslims” as being “vile and filthy people,” but, “your day of reckoning has arrived. There’s a new sheriff in town – Donald Trump,” and he will “cleanse America and make it shine again. And, he’s going to start with you Muslims.” It is signed by “Americans for A Better Way.”

These are indeed some serious threats – so serious that the police, the FBI or other law enforcement should have been the first to be notified. This would the logical approach after receiving such a menacing correspondence. You would think so, but no. read more
