    Report: Schools Are Teaching Kids To Hate America Under The Guise Of ‘Civics’ The New Civics sweeping colleges and K-12 teaches that citizenship means looking for grievances, then agitating for bigger government to address them. Joy Pullmann By Joy Pullmann January 16, 2017 U.S. civics education, if it exists at all, is being transformed into a political machine to push left-wing causes, undermine American government, and incite civil unrest, finds a 525-page report from the National Association of Scholars. The “New Civics” uses attractive, bipartisan-sounding words like “civics” and “service learning” to trick Americans and their representatives into allowing progressive...

    Some 25 colleges and universities – many of them public – have answered a call by professors at UCLA to use their regular class time to “teach, organize, and resist” what they view as the discriminatory political agenda of President-elect Donald Trump. Slated for Wednesday, January 18, the teach-in, dubbed #J18, is taking place between the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and Trump’s inauguration. The event’s planners say: Let it be known that on #J18 and beyond, universities, colleges, and high schools refused to bear silent witness to the politics of hate and fear; that in these times, these places...

    A Philadelphia teachers’ organization urged educators to instruct students about Black Lives Matter (BLM) in the classroom. The Caucus of Working Educators, a branch of a teachers union, wants educators to wear Black Lives Matter gear in the classroom and teach lessons based on the movement, reports ABC News. The organization has already written lesson plans for the week of Jan 23-Jan 28, many of which are based on BLM’s calls for diversity and globalism. “The vast majority of students that we serve are black, and it’s important to affirm the lives of our students,” Charlie McGeehan, a co-organizer, said....

    Students at hundreds of colleges and universities are being systematically indoctrinated into the “New Civics” of social justice activism, according to a report released this past week by the National Association of Scholars. The report’s findings suggest that the suppression of free speech on college campuses that is making headlines is only the tip of a very large iceberg. What lies beneath the surface is a massive, publicly funded program of indoctrination through a remaking of the curriculum as a vehicle for advancing the political agenda of progressivism.

    The Chronicle of Higher Education, which is a window on the sometimes weird world of academia, revisited a hilarious intellectual hoax from 20 years ago. In 1996, Alan Sokal, a New York University physicist and self-described “academic leftist,” composed an essay that was a word salad of solemn academic jargon. He said he strove to be “especially egregious,” by maundering on about “the dialectical emphases” of “catastrophe theory” becoming a “concrete tool of progressive political praxis.” His essay’s gaudy title was: “Transgressing the Boundaries: Toward a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity.” He sent it to the left-leaning “cultural studies” journal...

    A former IUPD cadet and IU student, expelled for violating the University’s consent policy, is suing IU for gender discrimination. Aaron Farrer, 21, alleges that the University’s policies for sexual assault investigations unfairly favor women and fail to protect the accused, according to court documents. “IU violated Title IX by creating a gender biased, hostile environment against males, like Farrer, based in part on IU’s pattern and practice of disciplining male students who accept physical contact initiated by female students, but failing to discipline female students who engage in the same conduct,” Farrer’s attorneys wrote in the complaint.

    One of the most common arguments in favor of school district transgender "non-discrimination" policies is that such policies prevent "bullying" and "harassment." But what is bullying and harassment? Definitions are often so broad and all-encompassing that people end up being severely penalized for "harassment" when all they did was speak their mind. Real-life examples of how "harassment" is really an excuse for censorship are abundant. In Massachusetts, a renowned urologist was fired by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center because he sent emails to hospital officials expressing concerns about the hospital's "aggressive promotion of and involvement in LGBT activities ... and...

Among the demands is a ban on public screenings of the film “American Sniper.” The group, who call themselves ProtectUMD, sent the letter in the wake of President-Elect Donald Trump’s victory, according the Diamondback student newspaper Monday. In response to Trump’s election, the student coalition demanded additional support and protection for minority groups — particularly the Muslim, illegal immigrant, pro-Palestinian, and LGBT communities.

    Universities across the nation are taking steps to actively purge male students of what’s been labeled “toxic masculinity.” Examples abound of campuses hosting training sessions, group meetings, lectures and other programs to effectively cleanse what many campus leaders and left-leaning scholars contend is an unhealthy masculinity in young men today. On campus, toxic masculinity is often blamed for sexual violence, body shaming, a “hyper-masculinized sporting culture,” acts of domestic terrorism and much more. For example, a class at Dartmouth College this semester, “The Orlando Syllabus,” identifies so-called toxic masculinity as playing a role in the mass murder spree at a...

    The Harvard Crimson ^ | 11-11-16 | Crimson editorial staff
    By THE CRIMSON EDITORIAL BOARD4 days ago 81 As students and professors continue to take stock of the results of Tuesday’s election, the ideological uniformity of much of Harvard’s population will no doubt dominate campus conversation. Honing in on Harvard’s undergraduates, The Crimson’s pre-election survey affirmed—to an extent—the College’s reputation as a liberal bastion. While we should use caution in using these results to make blanket assumptions about all academic and social contexts in which students discuss politics, the survey points to an overall lack of ideological diversity that should concern faculty, administrators, and students alike, especially at this moment...

    MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX 5) — A Mountain View high school teacher was kicked out of his classroom and is now getting threats for comparing President-elect Donald Trump to Hitler. Frank Novarro doesn’t know when he’ll be in front of the classroom again after a history lesson he believes was misunderstood. While some are accusing the history teacher of calling Trump a racist by drawing the comparison, he says that didn’t happen. “Because I think that it is historically factual,” says Novarro.

    *** Pictures are at the original link *** Photos circulated via Twitter show "safety pins" distributed to students and teachers by the administration and "student leadership" (i.e. puppet government) of Falls Church High School. The "safety pin" is a symbol first used in the aftermath of the United Kingdom's historic "Brexit" vote to leave the European Union and reclaim their national sovereignty. Now, after Donald J. Trump's electoral victory, anti-Trump protesters are using the safety pin to symbolize opposition to his policies and rhetoric. From the Independent Journal Review: A movement has started in the U.S. of people wearing a...

    Practicing homosexuality is a normal, if not vital, part of demonstrating masculinity for straight, white males, said Jane Ward, professor of gender and sexuality studies at the University of California Riverside. Ward visited IU on Thursday to talk about the ideas covered in her book, “Not Gay: Sex Between Straight White Men,” specifically surrounding how homosexuality impacts straight, white men. “I’m very interested in complicating our understanding of heterosexuality, because heterosexuality and queerness are mutually constituted,” Ward said.

    International Baccalaureate (IB) is a very popular program in Fairfax County and throughout the American educational system.

IB was created by surrogates of the United Nations' Cultural Organization, UNESCO, for the sole purpose of educating “world citizens” which will accept the United Nations' goals of a one-world government. The reason is because the United States population would never accept a world government today. A plurality of Americans are opposed to it. But...
