Freshman Dis-Orientation

See the source image

They call it “education.”

(Thanks to Susan for the nooze tip)

Peggy Nance of Concerned Women for America accompanied her son to freshman orientation at Virginia Tech… and was appalled by “extreme and overtly leftist propaganda” (https://thefederalist.com/2019/08/14/sons-freshman-orientation-virginia-tech-full-leftist-propaganda/).

Looniversity authorities separated children and parents so no one would complain about “speaker after speaker” subjecting new students to Far Left crazy horse****. And of course they made a big thing out of “preferred pronouns,” going so far as to include it on each student’s ID badge.

“Parents,” said the nimrods who run the place, “don’t be shocked if your kid comes home changed.” Ya think? If they’re not turned into leftist babblers, it won’t be because the so-called school didn’t try.

Ms. Nance urges parents to contact their state legislators and demand that they prohibit unconstitutional speech codes at their children’s colleges–and, while they’re at it, also contact alumni associations and the looniversity president.

These looniversities are all funded by public money, and they are not the public’s friends.

Defund public colleges and universities now… while we still have an America worth saving.


U. of London Bans Hamburgers

Oh! It’s so hard to do God’s job for Him!

To help control the natural processes of the earth and make Climate Change stop, the Looniversity of London has banned hamburgers–and all other beef products, too (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=13568). Because cow farts, dontcha know, make methane gas. We’re doomed.

Yes, the looniversity authorities have declared a “climate emergency,” and, like “pro-choice” big shots everywhere, they have erased another choice–the choice to eat a hamburger.

They’ll have to pry my White Castles from my cold, dead fingers.

Unbelief in God always seems to lead to out-of-control statism, as fallible human tyrants try to do God’s job–which they have to, of course, because He doesn’t exist. So now they’ve got to control the climate. Which they do by taking away your hamburgers. And anything else they think you shouldn’t have.

A prediction: Coming soon, to a campus near you–a ban on hamburgers.

All for your own good, as determined by The Smartest People In The World.


My Newswithviews Column, Aug. 15 (‘Where’s the “Public” in “Public Education”?’)

See the source image

Somehow virtually all our education choices got taken away from us, leaving us with no role in education but to pay–and pay, and pay–for it.

Where’s the ‘Public’ in ‘Public Education’?

But that’s what the “pro-choice” mob does. They take away our choices.

The ones that own the schools have decided that our children need to be raised as sexual anarchists, and are busily doing just that in public schools from sea to shining sea. And we let them do it.

Again, the only vote we get is with our feet. Normal people’s children have to be rescued, physically removed, from public education. Homeschool or Christian school: either one is vastly better than the parody of learning that goes on in public schools.


NJ Schools to Teach ‘LGBT Contributions,’ etc.

See the source image

Having saddled themselves with a Democrat governor and a Democrat legislature, the people of New Jersey are about to reap what they have sown.

Starting in the next school year, a new state law requires New Jersey public “schools” to teach “LGBT history and contributions,” blah-blah.

The mayor of Barnegat Township, Alfonso Cirulli, has asked the people of New Jersey to demand the repeal of that law (http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3771390/posts).

“No group has a right to force others to comply with their beliefs, deprive them of their First Amendment rights, and strip the rights of parents of how to morally raise their children,” the mayor said.

Excuse me while I put on my Barnegat T-shirt.

So once again the “pro-choice” crowd removes yet another choice from the undefended public. Once again, they’ll make the choice for you. They’ll stir the drink for you because you can only stir it bad.

We pay for those schools. We pay plenty. But we get no say in what is taught, or who teaches it. The only say we’ve got is to pull our children out of those Far Left indoctrination factories and educate them at home or in a Christian school.

Which is exactly what we have to do.

Otherwise we are allowing our culture to be killed, “educated” to death–and there will come a time when it’s just too late to save it.


‘The Gender Unicorn’? Really?

Fill in the blank and win a year’s supply of toothpaste sandwich cookies!

“I send my kids to public school to be ‘educated’ by far-out wackos because _______.”

A “teacher” at Denair Middle School, northern California, recently had to be stopped from handing out to his students a worksheet called “The Gender Unicorn,” which asks children about their “sexual preferences” and “sexual attractions” (https://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2019/08/09/school-leaders-stop-teacher-from-discussing-the-gender-unicorn/). Wow. Produced by “Trans Student Educational Resources.” The “teacher” instructs his seventh and eighth grade students to call him “Mx.”, not “Mr.”

Why do we have people like this teaching in our schools, on our dime? Why do we have no say at all in what we have to pay for?

The principal said she stopped the, er, “lessons” because the alleged teacher didn’t ask her permission before imposing them… and the parents didn’t like it.

Well, gee, folks! How many times do we have to tell you what’s going on in public schools? Don’t you believe us yet? I say “we” and “us” because it’s thousands of people telling the truth and no one’s listening.

At some point it will be too late to save our culture, no matter what we do.

So let’s not get to that point, shall we?

 


Public Schooling: It Really Is That Bad

See the source image

This article is about some of the stuff that people refuse to believe is happening in their public schools. They are wrong. For if they did believe it, they would have to tax their imaginations to find some excuse for sending their children there.

https://chalcedon.edu/resources/articles/when-sex-education-turns-into-pornography

Since I wrote it in 2011, the main thing “educators” have added to the mix described herein is the frantic hard push for “transgender.” Y’know, it was only eight years ago. That’s not a lot of time, is it?

Kill the culture, and it will kill you back.


‘This Just In: University Punishes Student for Criticizing ISIS, Rioters’ (2015)

See the source image

Why does a “Christian” university support this?

We really have to be off our chumps, to keep on founding looniversities that oppose themselves to everything our country stands for. Like for instance:

https://leeduigon.com/2015/08/04/this-just-in-university-punishes-student-for-criticizing-isis-rioters/

Texas “Christian” (that’s a laugh!) University threw the book at a student because he made disparaging remarks about bloodthirsty savages. I’d like to know where they get the authority to punish anyone. Hey, Stalinist jerks! If you don’t want the kid around anymore, give him back his tuition money and send him home.

Nor can I explain why the student allowed himself to be “punished” by a gang of little tinpot tyrants.

For the good of America, defund the universities. Now.


Teaching Teens to be Louts

See the source image

I’ve been remembering an incident from my school-teaching days: not a nice incident.

In P_____ High School they had closed-circuit TV in every classroom, and in the morning those TVs were all tuned to the same public school channel. The programming came with ads, and one of these stood out. We’re talking maybe 20 years ago, so I don’t remember what product the ad was meant to sell. But it was certainly meant to be viewed by captive audiences in high school home rooms.

The protagonist of this charming commercial was a teenage boy with his baseball cap on backwards and hair over his eyes. During the commercial he was shown slamming a door in an old lady’s face, kicking over garbage cans, and pushing people around.

This was the public education channel actively teaching young people that it was desirable, praiseworthy, and cool to be an antisocial misfit. And I’m here to tell you that a lot of the kids in that high school took those lessons to heart.

Since I last saw that ad, our society has generated an innumerable host of video games, movies, TV shows, music videos, and social media messages celebrating and glorifying behavior that once would have been strongly condemned and usually punished. The consumption of those messages as “entertainment” is a passive, ongoing, and powerful form of self-education.

And our culture is showing its effects.

Kill the culture, and it will kill you back.


The ‘Right’ to Teach?

See the source image

Where does it say that anybody has a “right” to teach America’s children? Like, you get to stand in front of your class and “teach” the joys of communism, whether the town that pays your salary wants you or not?

Watching teachers’ unions, one after another, throw off the mask of sanity and stand before us as out-and-out Marxists, one must truly wonder: Have we got a national death wish? How can it possibly be a good idea, to have people who hate our country teaching our children—in the public schools that we’re stuck paying for?

It was always a mistake to allow teachers to unionize, and now that mistake is coming home to roost. Teachers ought to serve at the pleasure of the public–period. They are employed by the public, paid by the public, pensioned by the public (heaven help us), equipped by public money–I mean, what part of that is so hard to understand?

We have a right, or flamin’ well should have the right, to decide who gets to teach our children and who doesn’t. If we don’t want commies teaching communism, we shouldn’t have to pay for commies teaching communism.

Teachers’ unions have been bad for education, bad for children, and bad for America. Once upon a time, over a hundred years ago, teachers provided the most articulate opposition to the crazy plans of “educators.” Now it’s the teachers who carry out those plans.

Public education will destroy us.


My Newswithviews Column, Aug. 1 (‘Deliver Us from Teachers’ Unions)

See the source image

A whole crowd of commies–and they’re all “teaching” in our so-called schools

Since I wrote this, I’ve learned that yet another teachers’ union, this one called “Redfored” (and they do mean “red,” as in communist), has sent a delegation to Venezuela to pay homage to its colossal failures. But the, er, “teachers” from Chicago got there first.

Deliver Us from Teachers’ Unions

Really–we must be totally out of our minds, to allow these commie wackos to “teach” our children. Do we have a national death wish or something? I sometimes think we do.
