‘Collidge Students Mistake Priest for Klansman’

See the source image

I think at this point we are entitled, if not obliged, to ask, “Just was is college supposed to do for students?” I mean, they call it “higher education,” but who’s getting educated?

And so, because they’re ignorant, foolish, and flighty, they panic when they see a Catholic priest and think it’s a Ku Klux Klan guy.

Can you imagine going into World War II with these? The D-Day invasion would have pulled up lame at Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Again, what are all those colleges supposed to do?

Search me!


My Newswithviews Column, June 13 (‘Stop This Wicked Transgenderism’)

See the source image

(Please note that my original headline said “wicked foolishness.”)

“Transgender” is hot, hot, hot, these days. I don’t know why. All I know is, it has to stop.

Stop This Wicked Transgenderism

Why are “educators” so infatuated with this evil delusion? And noozies? And Democrat politicians? Do they honestly believe in it? Given the insane nature of most of the things they already believed in before this came along–like socialism, the UN, world government, open borders, etc.–I guess we’d have to say, “Yeah, probably.”

This whole movement must be utterly defeated. I don’t see how our civilization can survive if it isn’t.


Freaking Out the Kiddies

I refuse to illustrate this shameful story. Here are some kittens instead.

You don’t hear much about this. Gee, I wonder why.

All this “transgender” business in the public schools–please, Christian parents! Pull your children out of public schooling–is giving children nightmares.

Little girls in kindergarten at a school in Rocklin, California, after the school’s “transgender celebration,” told their parents they were now afraid that they’d be “turned into boys” (https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2017/august/kindergarteners-scared-they-will-be-turned-into-boys-after-school-celebrates-transgender-transition). This was reported in 2017; then the story just… went away.

Nice thing for little kids to think about–waking up one morning to discover that you’re not you anymore. But hey, anything for Diversity And Tolerance!

God is going to hold Western “education” establishments accountable for this. You just see if He doesn’t.

O Lord our God! Remember, please, that these things are done without our consent, against our will, and over our objections.


‘Where Do the Nutty Professors Come From?’ (2016)

See the source image

Do you ever wonder why it seems that colleges and looniversities are staffed by kooks and wackos–and then realize that’s because they’re staffed by kooks and wackos? How are they able to find so many nuts?

https://leeduigon.com/2016/06/20/where-do-the-nutty-professors-come-from/

I have been told by a most authoritative source: they seek them out. That’s right–they want highly disturbed individuals to do the teaching. Why? With that I can’t help you.

It really has gotten to the point that the colleges and looniversities constitute a threat to the survival of our republic. They must be defunded. Now.


‘Tots Asked to “Choose Their Gender”‘ (2016)

See the source image

How did this wicked foolishness wind up sweeping through the entire Western world? What madness possesses us, that we should tolerate it? I mean, come on, this schlop shouldn’t have lasted ten seconds!

http://home.bt.com/news/uk-news/four-year-olds-asked-to-choose-gender-on-primary-school-form-11364052985017

And now we’re “Haters” because we won’t tell a four-year-old boy that he can “choose” to be a girl. He can’t choose to pray on school grounds, but he can “choose” to be a girl.

Damn right I hate this stuff. It reeks of Hell.


‘The Fantasy of Public Education’ (2013)

See the source image

I feel more secure already!

I’m a fantasy writer. It’s my job to make up weird stuff. I wouldn’t dream of standing in front of a full classroom and saying the stuff I make up is real.

But no such scruples inhibit our public school teachers’ unions. For instance:

https://leeduigon.com/2013/04/15/the-fantasy-of-public-education/

So the teacher has the kids write down, “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.”

LOL. As if a tyrannical government has ever made anybody more secure! Do you think the people in Venezuela feel more secure than we do? Would you rather live in China? Lots of security there! Just don’t you dare step out of line.

Once upon a time, a “teacher” who engaged in such an exercise would be fired as quick as boiled asparagus. The community wouldn’t stand for such lessons.

But we have let them take away the community’s authority over the schools. Now Far Left Crazy owns the schools.


‘When Monsters Attack Your School’ (2016)

Thanks to the special effects magic of Tim Haines, we can see what happens when an oversized Gorgonopsian from the Triassic period… decides to break into a grammar school and eat people.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/05/28/when-monsters-attack-your-school/

(Technical note: They were ugly critters, but they were nowhere near that big.)

This is only slightly worse than stuff that goes on in public schools every single day. “Gender spectrum,” anyone? We can’t do anything about disasters involving imaginary prehistoric animals.

But we can and by all means should pull children out of schools run by Far Left Crazy teachers’ unions.


Here’s What Our Schools Call ‘U.S. History’

See the source image

Your school tax dollars at work–used against you, and against your country.

By the People is a new U.S. History textbook, published by Pearson Education, to be used next year by Advanced Placement students in public high schools nationwide. It describes our elected president, Donald Trump, as “mentally ill” and “racist” (https://www.wnd.com/2019/04/u-s-history-textbook-portrays-trump-as-mentally-ill-racist/). And those of us who voted for him aren’t very nice people, either.

Y’see, explains the textbook, us Trump voters are bad people ’cause we have too much “anger.” Gee willikers, why in the world should we be “angry”? Why, we should be thanking them for revealing to us that the president that we elected is a nut and a racist! We should thank them for showing us what creeps we are. How could that possibly make us angry?

If we had been nice people we would’ve elected Hillary. [Reaches for barf bag.]

And they make us pay for this! Taxes galore. They make us pay to be insulted and lied to. And we let them do it! That’s the part that I don’t understand: we let them do it.

When are normal people going to understand that the Far Left crazies who own our public education system despise them, hold them in extreme contempt, and operate the schools that we pay for as a means of turning our children against us? And against everything we value.

We are “educating” ourselves to death; and when we all wake up in Venezuela North someday, we’ll know whose fault it is.

Our own. For not stopping this while we had the chance.


Found! My Newswithviews Column, April 25 (‘Now They Hate Your Daughters, Too’)

See the source image

Don’t stop your ears! Stop the colleges

I don’t know why this wasn’t available earlier this morning. With the same problem cropping up in New Jersey, Virginia, and Idaho, it was probably a computer glitch at the publisher’s end. Anyway, here it is now.

Now They Hate Your Daughters, Too

I find it increasingly difficult to escape the conclusion that our colleges and looniversities are purposely trying, as hard as they can, to destabilize our country, plunge our social order into chaos, and somehow emerge on top, ruling the rubble. Or else it’s just something so deeply perverse as to have no rational explanation at all.

Either way, we’d better put a stop to it, like, now–before “higher education” puts a stop to America.


Back When We Were Citizens

Image result for images of rowdy school board meeting

I remember back in the 1960s, when I was still in public school, and they first tried to add “sex education” to the curriculum.

Practically the whole town turned out for the school board meeting, to tell the board, in no uncertain terms, “Thou shalt not!” And so they didn’t, because they would’ve all been voted out of office if they had.

My friend Jimmy’s father, Mr. K., was particularly persuasive. They didn’t like to see him coming. So they refrained from innovations to the curriculum–because they had a wholesome fear of how the community would react. Because back then, see, we still had a community.

What’s changed?

For one thing, the state took away virtually all the power that the local school boards had to determine how education was conducted in their district. So if the voters rejected the school budget, the state commissioner had the power to nullify their vote. Eventually people stopped voting down school budgets, because it was futile. And meanwhile, the board had to tailor the curriculum to conform to whatever the state wanted.

I’m sure this happened in other states besides New Jersey.

Local control of school districts protected us from the kind of endless mischief now perpetrated daily by the state and federal governments. We could get it back, if there were ever the political will to abolish the federal Dept. of Education and get the federal government out of education altogether. We would also have to abolish the office of state commissioner of education, abolish state departments of education, and repeal Common Core–including all the “rewrites” which are only Common Core hiding behind a less controversial name.

All of that would be tremendously difficult to accomplish, going up against rich, powerful, entrenched opposition from the government and teachers’ unions.

Much better to pull Christian children, and others, out of public education and give them a Christian education, either at home or in a Christian school.

And there’s a wonderful upside to that.

Kill public education, and liberalism dies.
