Ooh-ooh-ooh! Another Youth Climate Strike!

See the source image

Well, now we know why they want all those children’s books in the library touting Far Left Crazy public figures…

This Friday there’s to be another Youth Climate Strike protesting Climbit Change and demanding government action ’cause the world is gonna end in twelves years, etc., etc.–and the New York City schools have given the green light to students to cut classes so they can take part in the protests (https://www.axios.com/climate-strikes-nyc-1m-students-can-skip-school-fdc414c6-1496-4107-85cb-ef6522e4d512.html). In some quarters this is called government sponsorship of a particular opinion and would not be allowed.

And three days later, also in New York City, we’ll have the United Nations Climate Action Summit.” Oh, boy. “Organizers expect millions of people to leave work, home and school” to march for “action” on Climate Change, which used to be Global Warming until it stopped getting warmer.

They think that if they can manipulate enough intellectually defenseless school kids to march mindlessly in protests organized by thieves and liars, they can get us to surrender our freedoms and sacrifice our republic on the altar of world government.

Serves us right for sending our kids to those public schools. We really do have to stop doing that.


Beyond Putrid: Dem Books for the Kiddies

(Photo originally from National Review)

Coming soon to the children’s section of your local public library, and paid for with the tax money that you worked for–

The ABCs of AOC: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from A to Z

She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World by the eminent historian, Chelsea Clinton

Nevertheless, She Persisted by Elizabeth Warren

I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsberg Makes Her Mark

Muslim Girls Rise, featuring Ilhan Omar

These and others like them will soon be crowding less awful books off the shelves (https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/childrens-books-heavy-handed-politics/). And let’s not forget their 2016 forerunner, Hillary Rodham Clinton: Some Girls Are Born to Lead.

Nominating people for sainthood while they’re still alive is, well, tacky, don’t you think? And nominating live politicians for sainthood is grotesque. But the libs are coming for your children’s minds, and to them there’s no such thing as “too early for this s***.”

How did it turn out that just about everything that has the word “public” in its title is actually hostile to the public, contemptuous of the public, and working to undermine the public’s best interests? This includes, sadly, our public libraries. The people who run them despise us. They want to saddle us with left-wing tyrants.

I think I need a barf bag.


‘Your Tax $$ at Work: the Columbia U. School of Climate Change Hysteria’ (2014)

Isn’t it wonderful, the way you can rack up college credits by being a bozo, or at least acting like one? All aboard for Columbia’s “Climate Change Games”!

https://leeduigon.com/2014/06/25/your-tax-at-work-the-columbia-u-school-of-climate-change-hysteria/

At this point we have to wonder if there’s any genuine education going on at all in any of our colleges and looniversities. Is it only half-baked twaddle anymore? Do you have to prove you’ve become a full-fledged idiot before you get a degree?

The ninnitude in this story was from five years ago, and they have labored on it ever since.


Down with Nation-States?

Image result for images of chaos in the streets

“We don’t need no stinkin’ nation-states!”

Nation-states “should not exist” and citizenship is “arbitrary,” “ridiculous,” and merely “a social construct,” self-proclaimed intellectuals from a not-quite-real “Freedom University” told an audience of–well, presumably students, at St. Olaf University recently (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=13704).

See? They don’t even pretend to make sense anymore. And you can always get an audience for that kind of thing at St. Olaf’s. The patron saint of Norway is very poorly served by the school that bears his name.

“Freedom University” serves “undocumented youth”–persons who are here illegally–and although it has a website, it occupies “an undisclosed location” somewhere in Atlanta.

So, okay, we get rid of nation-states–then what? What do we have in their place? My guess would be boiling chaos. They would certainly try to set up some kind of world government to keep the whole thing from blowing sky-high; and just as certainly it would fail.

But think of the fun they’d have, trying!

The far left is no longer sane, they’re all as crazy as bedbugs, and our colleges and looniversities cater to them like royalty. And they do it on our dime.

“Educating” ourselves to death…

Do They Want to be 6 Years Old Forever?

Image result for images of crybaby college student

On his radio show yesterday, Sean Hanity played some interviews with current college students. I was in my car on the Parkway, so I couldn’t take notes. But what I heard was–well, pathetic. Shameful.

The topic was “The Appeal of Socialism,” and it certainly seemed to appeal, big-time, to these overgrown babies. Free college. Free healthcare. Free housing. Guaranteed income, in case you just don’t want to work. One and all, these college students aspired to a life of “being taken care of” by the government. Just as if they were to be little children all their lives. Have they no shame? Have they no morals? Yes, folks–it’s immoral to be a parasite, with the government forcing other people to pay your way.

What do these people even want to do with their lives? There’s a poll that says most of them want “to be famous.” But famous for what? They don’t know. Swallowing Tide pods?

They also have no idea how all this free stuff is going to be paid for. No idea at all. Their guiding light, Congresscreature Alexandria O’Crazy-O Cortez, says all we’ve got to do is print more money. Yeah, that’ll work.

But here’s another thing they don’t know. Apart from the money, what will all this free stuff cost those who receive it? What will they have to give in return? “Their unqualified obedience” would be my guess. Right down to the most minute details of their lives. And if that means they kill and eat you after your 30th birthday–

Well, you asked for it, comrades.

 


Zillionaire College Athletes?

See the source image

Gettin’ a little hard to find stuff that ain’t corrupt…

They already get scholarships and free tuition, they’re immune to flunking out academically, and they have the added fun of being able to pose as “students.” But that isn’t enough for the state of California.

The Assembly has passed, by a 66-0 vote (!), a bill called “Fair Pay to Play,” which would allow college athletes to hire agents and make money from endorsements (https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaabk/california-assembly-passes-legislation-to-pay-college-athletes/ar-AAH3QvF). A final vote in the Senate is scheduled for tomorrow. The NCAA has warned that this is likely to jeopardize the amateur status of California’s college athletes and render California schools ineligible to compete for NCAA national championships.

Aw, so what? Those racists at the NCAA just hate education.

Oh, well–it’s more honest than that whole pretense of “student-athletes.” But what about “higher education” is honest anymore?

Meanwhile, back in the real world, “pay to play” denotes corrupt politicians selling public  policy in return for campaign contributions and other goodies. That’s one thing that’s still less dishonest than college sports. But only just barely.


‘UK School Threatens to Brand 8-Year-Olds as Racists’ (2013)

See the source image

“You dirty little racists, you!”

The more I think about these news stories I’ve posted over the year, the more I begin to realize R.J. Rushdoony was right–Far Left Crazy, secular humanism, really is destroying itself. Like f’rinstance:

https://leeduigon.com/2013/11/25/uk-school-threatens-to-brand-8-year-olds-as-racists/

All the “progressive” things they do are progress only to the pit. Go ahead, tell me how it benefits anyone to have a “racist” label slapped on an 8-year-old kid, by some damnfool of a schoolmarm, that’ll follow him wherever he goes–just because his mommy didn’t send him on a field trip.

Nothing these people “achieve” benefits society. Unless you think live birth abortion and “gay marriage” are benefits. But if you do… well, you’re one of them.


My First Day of School

See the source image

Last night on Youtube we watched some people reminiscing about their first day of school. Well, that brings back memories!

We lived right next door to the school. My mother took me there the first day. And then, to my horror, she left me there. What was she thinking?

My first day in class I found both boring and stressful. Then I found out I couldn’t leave until they said so. What? You mean I’m stuck here?

The principal, my first two years, was Mr. Popke, an angel who loved children. He made the place bearable. He was succeeded by a smarmy character who excelled in tricking little kids into admitting to mischief they hadn’t actually done. He was succeeded by an angry crone who communicated by shrieking at you. It went downhill from there.

As for the teachers, my mother, father, grandparents, aunts, and uncles were all way more interesting than any teachers. What did I ever learn in school that they couldn’t have taught me? Some of the teachers I had–well, the less said about them, the better. I was a homeschooling fan before I ever heard of homeschooling. There is very much to be said for children being taught by adults who know and love them.

Later on in grade school, I had the devil’s own time trying to learn how to add up a column of numbers. “Carrying” really stumped me. The teacher couldn’t solve it. My father sat down with me one evening after supper and taught me how to do it in twenty minutes.

And this was long before public education came to be all about sex, socialism, and detesting your country. It wasn’t toxic then. Just boring. I could have learned all the material a lot faster than I did, but the teaching was geared to accommodate the slower learners.

This was before the teachers’ unions sent delegations to places like Venezuela to praise the dictator and his socialist policies and then, upon their return, teach such piffle to the kiddies.

Public schooling is an idea whose time has come and gone. Long gone.


‘When It Feels So Good to be Offended’ (2016)

See the source image

She just saw a white guy eating Chinese food…

If some of these college jidrools ever had to go a day without being offended, they’d feel like they’d had no day at all.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/03/11/when-it-feels-so-good-to-be-offended/

Some of it’s our fault, though: we’re the sad sacks who fund those colleges. We’re paying for the students to learn how to be addle-pated, snarling, upside-down nonentities. Not just in the exorbitant tuition fees we cough up without a murmur of protest; public money, our taxes that we worked for, comes pouring into colleges and looniversities.

I was going to say we deserve a better product than they’re giving us. But do we? Do we?
