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

We’ve heard it throughout the presidential campaign – that Republicans are racists – conservatives are racists – anyone who dares speak up or speak out against the myth that America is a racist nation.

Are there racists in America? You bet there are, and I’ll lay you odds that there are more racist blacks today per capita than there are whites. But we’re not allowed to say things like that. This is too controversial and may cause leftists to go weak in the knees and tremble in fear.

There is nowhere in this great country of ours where the fantasy of racial injustice is more prevalent than America’s college campuses.

This has become typical of the new University experience today. Practically everyday on some college campus there are one or more demonstrations, sit-ins, walk-outs or protests, bemoaning the fate of some minority group.

Being that discrimination is apparently so commonplace, one would think it would be easy to find instance after instance of these violations. That seems reasonable, does it not? read more
