Lib Profs Outnumber Conservatives, 12-1

Okay, who’s surprised about this? A study shows that Far Left college professors outnumber conservatives, 12-1 (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/oct/6/liberal-professors-outnumber-conservatives-12-1/). The researchers surveyed 40 “leading universities” and found the faculty voter registration figures to be about 3,600 Democrat to only 300 Republican. It sounds like Thermopylae.

Why the huge disparity?

The researchers reasoned–rather shrewdly, I thought–that the main cause of this has been academic disciplines “branching out” into Silly Studies–women’s studies, gender studies, Everything Is Racist studies, and all the rest of it–that no conservative professor could ever bring himself to “teach.”

Job One for our colleges is to crank out more Far Left crazies. Job Two is to expand perpetually, so as to find jobs for as many of these chowderheads as possible. That a vast swath of them are totally unemployable even by colleges is of no concern.

Public schools, teachers’ unions, our grotesquely overgrown “higher education” system–kill these, and Far Left Crazy dies. In America, at least, what we laughingly call “education” is leftism’s life support system.

That alone is ample reason to defund it.


Barf Alert: ‘The Music Academy’

(Thanks to Susan for the tip)

This is the most obnoxious commercial I’ve seen in years. Something about financial planning seems to inspire ad men to their very worst efforts.

Here we have the teenage daughter playing the cello but ohnotoobad, she can’t go to the music academy because it’s too expensive and they ain’t got a pot or a window–that’s why Mommmm drives that crummy old car that stalls all the time. But unbeknownst to Little Miss Cello, Mommm has gone to Principal.com for her financial planning, and they’ve got it covered. We get to go to the dreadfully expensive music academy after all.

“I still have this car so you can afford to go,” Mommm explains. Heartstring time. They dive into each other’s arms.

Uh… where’s Daddy?

Shut up! Get out of here, Mr. Man, we don’t want you around! We don’t need you! Principal.com has got us covered. (Is Principal.com all women?)

Ah, well–is there any sacrifice too great to make for Higher Education?

Thousands of ’em, I’d say.

Some Good News, for a Change

Image result for images of communist teachers union

Why do we let these people teach our children?

Teachers’ unions are the backbone of Far Left Crazy in America, pouring millions of dollars and tens of thousands of unpaid “volunteers” into Democrat political campaigns every year.

But thanks to a 2018 Supreme Court ruling, this could change. The court ruled that a teacher does not have to join the union or pay union dues as a condition of employment. Yowch!

Oregon’s two teachers’ unions, since the ruling, have lost 35% and 36% of their members, and each has lost close to $1 million in revenue (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/11/13/teachers-unions-see-drops-in-membership-and-revenue/).

Unions have been trying to find ways around complying with the ruling; and as yet, most teachers are unaware that they have been given their freedom. A lot of them are only in the unions because they do not know they do not have to be! Once upon a time you could leave the union, but you’d still have to pay union dues even though you were not a member anymore. The Supreme Court’s ruling has abolished that requirement.

I can’t think of anything that would benefit America more than the collapse of teacher unions–unless it would be the collapse of “public education” altogether. Did we or did we not just find out that the teachers’ union in Chicago recently sent delegations to Venezuela to “study” socialism and sing the praises of the Maduro dictatorship? Why should the American people have to pay for that? Why should we have to let these left-wing loons “teach” our children to be as daft as they themselves are?

It is unjust and intolerable that taxpayers have to fund these schools but have no say as to who teaches in them, or what is taught. If we pay for something, we should own it! “Public education” has stood that on its head.

Teachers, wake up! The court has stricken off your chains.


They Call It ‘Education’

Here’s Tucker Carlson exposing the latest mischief that its perpetrators are calling “education.” It’s “Deep Equity Education,” a teacher training curriculum aimed at convincing undefended children that everything about America is “racist” and it’s all white people’s fault–the usual “social justice” claptrap, with the usual baggage of pseudo-language and lying.

Hey, people–when are you gonna wake up? You pay for these horrible “schools,” but you don’t have any say at all in who teaches there, or what gets taught. All you do is pay and pay and pay! To this day, no one has dared calculate how much you pay, each year, for the total cost of, um, “public education.”

And what do you get for your money? You get Far Left white liberal wackos teaching your children that everything is racist, if they’re white it’s all their fault and they must spend the rest of their lives punishing themselves, and if they’re black or hispanic, well, they’re inept and incompetent victims who need empowered leftists to run their lives for them and give them free stuff.

The idea is to tear down the country so they can build God knows what on its ruins.

Kill public education, and Far Left Crazy dies.

Kill public education. It’ll be worth it.

P.S.–Deep Equity urges teachers to “explicitly reject and resist” any complaint by parents. You’re paying for that, suckers.

Does China Own Our Universities?

See the source image

Communism makes young people happy!!

Just going by current events, you’d think it would hardly be necessary for communist China to try to influence our Western colleges and looniversities. I mean, these schools are already pushing communism–right?

Nevertheless, the Chinese government’s department of “education and propaganda” (they don’t see much difference between the two) has taken pains to set up “Confucius Institutes” at colleges throughout the United States and Britain–148 of them here at home, and another 29 in the UK (https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/11/06/chinese-communists-infiltrate-uk-universities/).

The Confucius Institutes promote Chinese interests in general, and in particular, they labor to steer study and discussion away from “the three T’s”–Tibet, Taiwan, and Tien-an-Men Square. In Britain they’ve been able to get lectures and conferences on those subjects canceled and have confiscated students’ papers dealing with those topics. They also do a bang-up job of intimidating Chinese students who are studying abroad.

Here in America, Senator Josh Hawly–Republican, of course, from Missouri–no Democrat would dream of doing this–has called for a Congressional investigation into the Confucius Institutes’ influence on American “higher education.” Somehow he doesn’t think it’s a good idea to be pumping American students full of Chinese Communist Party ideology. Not that American communism is any better.

We have way more colleges and universities than we need, with way too many students in them, pissing away four, five, or six years of their lives, with way too many Far Left kooks “teaching” them a lot of garbage–and it’s costing us way, way, way too much money. In fact, we’re “educating” ourselves to death.

Defund the universities. Now.

 


Let’s ‘Re-imagine’ Free Speech!

See the source image

Nope, can’t find any extremism here! Let’s check out the Kiwanis Club…

Be very afraid when any liberal starts talking about the need to “re-imagine” anything. They use the word as a euphemism for “to bend, fold, spindle, and mutilate something out of all recognition.”

UC Berkeley recently had a… “reporter,” I think he calls himself, from The New Yorker give a speech there, in which he said America needs to “re-imagine its interpretation of the First Amendment” so as to forbid “fringe political speech” in the social media (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=13958). Allowing what we have always known as free speech, he said, is like allowing guests at a party to set fire to a couch–presumably indoors, although he didn’t specify that.

So… what does he call “fringe political speech”? Three guesses. I doubt I have to tell you to answer to that question.

Ah–but what about “fringe political speech” that comes from Far Left Crazy? Hold on to your hats. He says there’s simply no such thing as “extremism” among the Left.

Wow. If they gave an Oscar for bald, bodacious hypocrisy, this guy would win it, hands down. It takes one’s breath away.

Hey, out there! These people are out to wreck our republic and they need to be utterly defeated. As in put out of business, forever. The Democrat Party and its mob of kooks and Stalinist wannabes is a viper harbored in our nation’s bosom.

Let’s not re-imagine a political landscape in which a Democrat can’t even be elected dog catcher.

Let’s make it real.


Coach Suspended… for Winning

See the source image

Too much success! Forbidden!

If you ever thought there could be anything too trivial, too unimportant, for government to stick its nose into, think again.

A high school football coach in New York has been suspended after his Plainedge team defeated South Side H.S., 61-13 (https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/02/nyregion/football-coach-suspended-sportsmanship.html). Both teams had been undefeated, going into the game; so a blowout would hardly be expected, but that’s what happened.

Aha! But Nassau County has a rule against lopsided high school football victories–and a special “panel” to deal with that very thing. Winning by more than 42 points is not allowed. Bad coach! Bad football players! You scored too many points! Don’t you know that that’s a very naughty thing to do?

So what are you supposed to do, if you’re the coach and your team is 42 points ahead with half the game yet to go? You could pull your starters and play your scrubinis–but what if they get inspired, and score a touchdown? Bad on you!

Or you could order your team to employ the “See No Evil” Defense, in which the defending players stand perfectly still with their hands over their eyes, singing “I am a Rock, I am an Island” while the other team runs plays.

Or the stupid county could just plug in a simple rule: the moment one team gets 42 points ahead, the game is automatically over, the leading team wins.

I used to like football. Now I look at it with the same mix of puzzlement and horror that one feels for certain long-expired relationships–the kind that have you muttering to yourself, “What in the world did I ever see in So-and-So?”


‘Teacher’ Mocks Students’ Religious Beliefs

See the source image

Tell me one more time: you send your kids to public school to be “educated” by Far Left unionized kooks because __________,

A teacher at Johnston High School, North Carolina, has been suspended–with full pay, of course–for segregating her students according to their religious beliefs, and mocking the students who believe in God (https://jocoreport.com/teacher-under-investigation-for-segregating-students-based-on-religious-personal-beliefs/).

“This is an unfortunate incident,” said the superintendent of schools. Ya think? So he’ll “investigate it.”

The alleged teacher had the students line up on opposite sides of the classroom, according to whether they believed in God or not; then whether they supported abortion or not; and then whether they supported “gay rights” or not. Having finished that phase of her agenda, the teacher went on to mock the students who didn’t share her own depraved and indefensible beliefs.

I think you have to commit suicide before they actually stop paying you, if you’re a unionized schoolteacher.

We pay for these schools. Why do we have no say about who gets to teach there?
