There’s a private school, K through 12, in Manhattan, New York City, called the Grace Church School. As you’ll see in a moment, that name is an oxymoron.
It costs $57,000 a year to attend.
It’s gotten some press recently as Paul Rossi, a math teacher, was let go, his contract was not renewed. Or as the school says, he “was relieved of his teaching duties.”
Why you ask?
Well because he took issue with their new curriculum that now includes a 12 page “language inclusive” guide, and the addition of “critical race theory.” read more

I don’t do yoga – never have.
The closest I got was to take a group work-out-like class to help a friend. It was basically me and bunch of women. Talk about feeling like a fish out of water.
But I do know one thing. When I was taking part in the class, I sure wish we could have injected a political discussion or two as we were in our plank position. Thank would have been great.
When I post other writers articles, my normal want is to preface the article with commentary or thoughts to compliment or stress a particular portion of the article. Maybe it’s something I see that I believe some may miss, or may require further explanation.
However, the following Newsweek piece by
, former Trump administration adviser, needs no such preface. It’s just that spot-on!

When Everything is Racist There’s No Room for Reason

According to a number sources on the interweb, including her own website, the subject of the following Blaze article is a “Psychologist, Professor and Preacher – Healing the legacies of racial and gender oppression.”
Now I’ve met a number of ministers, priests, monks and preachers in my time. And not one has shared that he has prayed to God to help “hate” anyone. read more

Major League Baseball has decided that Georgia is now just too racist to hold both it’s All Star Game and MLB draft in Atlanta.
And the heads of Coca Cola and Delta airlines, both based in Atlanta, have issued strong statements over the racism of this law.
And why you ask? Because Georgia has the nerve to ask for a photo I.D. when casting a mail-in ballot. Oh the horror!
Yet what all three of the major corporation heads neglected to tell the cameras that were filming their heartfelt condemnations, is that in order to gain employment at any of them, guess what you must have. That’s right – a photo I.D.
Ironic ain’t it.
And finally, I pose a question to any and all, but you’ll to watch to discover what it is! read more

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.”

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

Yesterday an article was posted at Campus Reform that the “Harvard Kennedy School students sent an open letter to administrators demanding racial equity actions, including a mandatory anti-racism course for Masters degree students and a full “audit” of the curriculum using an “anti-racist, anti-colonial lens.”
Evidently over 200 students are demanding this new “equity-based” curriculum.
I discuss the difference between the old standard of demanding equality to now demanding equity.
Also some breaking news. AOC claims she was in fact killed during the Capital riot and gave her first interview as a ghost. read more
As you read this article, please bear in mind the purpose of why it was written. It’s not, as the author writes, just about calling out racism, white privilege, et al. Radical leftists don’t simply want to engage and change the heart and mind of old white Grandpa. That might be constructive.
No, what it’s really about is the Marxist BLM desire to deconstruct the Western nuclear family. As the leaders of the BLM movement posted, before it was scrubbed of course, is to, “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure…”
And naturally, this will be reiterated through Christmas and any other family get-togethers.
