How Universities Inject Toxic Anti-Americanism Into Students
PJ Media ^ | 06/04/2020 | BY PHILIP CARL SALZMAN

Posted on 06/04/2020 7:06:36 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Behind the anti-American hate seen in the current rioting, arson, and looting is the long term undermining of America carried out systematically in our universities. Various social movements—the counter-culture movement of the 1960s, the feminist movement from the 1960s, the revival of Marxism in the 1970s, the race activists from the Black Panthers to Black Lives Matter, the gay liberation movement, the Palestinian anti-Israel movement—have been adopted and absorbed in universities in their most extreme and maximalist forms. Professors have ceased to see themselves as scholars striving for impartial and objective knowledge, choosing instead to be advocates of preferred groups and movements, and activists advancing “progressive” and far-left causes. Teaching has become largely political indoctrination, and administration includes ideological control and suppression of unwelcome opinions.

In the mid-20th century, most American colleges and universities had Western Civilization courses or programs. By the end of the century, most of these had been jettisoned. Western Civilization was no longer viewed as the font of great scientific and technological discoveries and achievements, of brilliant literary and artistic works, of advanced development of democratic institutions, of recognition of civil and human rights. Instead, Western Civilization was characterized as imperialistic, colonialistic, capitalist, sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, and Islamophobic, the work of evil white men who should be expunged from memory.

The work of evil white men was banned in favor of works by lesbians of color, indigenous natives, gays and transsexuals, Africans, Arabs, Indians, and East Asians. No more would students be sullied by the disgraceful works of the Jewish Bible, Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Plato, Aristotle, the Gospels, Augustine, Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Cervantes, Moliere, and, skipping over many, Yeats, Proust, Joyce, Kafka, and Camus.

AND HERE's WHAT MOST UNIVERSITIES TEACH:

The work of evil white men was banned in favor of works by lesbians of color, indigenous natives, gays and transsexuals, Africans, Arabs, Indians, and East Asians. No more would students be sullied by the disgraceful works of the Jewish Bible, Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Plato, Aristotle, the Gospels, Augustine, Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Cervantes, Moliere, and, skipping over many, Yeats, Proust, Joyce, Kafka, and Camus.

The only Western author honored in contemporary American universities is Karl Marx. In fact, Marx’s class-conflict model of society has been adopted throughout the social sciences, humanities, education, social work, and law, ranging females against males, people of color against people of white, LGBT++ against heterosexuals, indigenous natives against “colonialists,” Muslims against Christians and Jews (as always throughout history), disabled against abled, poor against well off, and unsuccessful minorities against Asians. The goal is the socialist utopia run by females, people of color, and transsexuals.

RE:Another Obama Legacy

To be fair, the legacy existed LOOOONG before Obama came into public office. Parents who pay top dollars to send their kids to these schools and support them via their gifts and donations are partly to blame.

Howard Zinn will go down as one of the most destructive forces in American history. He was a one-man wrecking crew in this regard.

What the indoctrination/brainwashing, and looting and rioting actually accomplish, is huge resentment, which essentially is the complete opposite of what the race pimps and liberal teachers and professors want.

The looting and rioting and destruction occurring now, is just going to backfire. People will not accept or be forced to into submission. Instead or more racial equality, the opposite is what’s going to happen. Biden and Obama and the democrats and the left-wing media and teachers/professors, are actually making things worse, for blacks and minorities and the poor.

Try K-12. My kids 3rd grade “social studies “ book taught that the pilgrims came to spread disease. That was in the 1990’s.
Parents didn’t care.

You might be right, but, that's not what the rank and file people expect as the outcome, and blacks and other minorities are being misled.

Besides, if they want a revolution, they for sure won't be winning it, and their revolution will backfire and set them back hundreds of years.

I can attest first-hand of the indoctrination training that educators are undergoing.

My Masters Degree work has seen multiple “instructors” attempting to inculcate Democratic Socialism, wokeness, and in-your-face revisionist history into the courses making up the last half of my teaching degree work.

One was an unapologetic BLM operative who taught her course from the predictable ideology. Another bragged that he was a veteran father of three who blithely stated that all veterans are collectivists by training. Yet another was completely unreachable even by email to rebut the cultural Marxism she demanded in the syllabus (I ended up dropping that course, and told my faculty advisor why).

With one final course left before graduation, and unable to finance it, my teaching degree is now DOA. Considering the current putsch in progress, I probably would never have been hired even as a sub.

Depends on definitions.

Resentment and backlash serve the prog narrative of racial hatred from whites towards everyone else.

The progs will be there to offer whatever reparations/revenge/punishment to the *oppressed* in exchange for votes or street-fighting support.

It was a noble pursuit. Imagine you are intended for better things. The challenge for all of us will be to resolve our internal issues while effectively maintaining national security.

During the 1950s there was a “joke” going around that there were more communists teaching at Princeton University that we’re teaching in Moscow.
Later we found out that is wasn’t a joke!
