  • Kids Don’t Know Much About History Thanks to Anti-American Indoctrination

    Rush Limbaugh ^ | 7/06/20 | El Rushbo
    RUSH: We have repeatedly said, ladies and gentlemen, that these protests and riots are being led by college-aged kids who literally know nothing about American history. They have not been taught the truth. This is key to understand. They have not been taught the truth of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, the founding, and then made up their minds that they think these guys are reprobates and creeps. They’ve not been taught the truth. They have been propagandized and indoctrinated from the get-go. They have been filled with hatred, pure and simple. But they think that they’ve been taught the truth,...

    Last week I wrote about how we’re in a cultural civil war and it’s time for conservatives—and really, anyone who’s not on board with the radical anti-American agenda of Black Lives Matter and the rest of the woke left—to fight back.But how? I was light on specifics, and subsequently heard from a number of readers who wanted to know what they could do, personally, to push back against the leftward lurch of the culture. Many said they feel powerless and overwhelmed, and with good reason.Silicon Valley, Hollywood, academia, the mainstream media, corporate America, and the entire Democratic Party (along...

    Joey is the first ever picture book about the young life of Joe Biden, the 47th Vice President of the United States, and includes never before told family stories about the presidential candidate and former vice president’s childhood—written by Jill Biden, his spouse. Joe Biden grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the oldest of four children. His parents always encouraged him and his siblings to be independent and strong. The family moved to Wilmington, Delaware, where at twenty-nine, Biden was elected one the youngest United States Senators ever elected. This is his story.

    The Federalist ^ | June 25, 2020 | Emily Jashinsky and Madeline Osburn
    Social media is awash with curious images of woke white women creating mayhem at Black Lives Matter demonstrations. They’ve burned down a Wendy’s, set fire to cop cars, screamed obscenities in the faces of police officers, and assaulted a Wisconsin lawmaker. It’s strange to observe white women in pricey athleisure scream at black cops and dress like they’re in “The Purge” to set fast food restaurants ablaze. It raises a question as to why members of the fairer sex are on the frontlines of riotous efforts to support a movement that insists they’re racist, capitalism is racist, and the whole...

    Ricochet ^ | June 22, 2020 | David Foster
    The late Dr. David Yeagley, a Comanche Indian (traditional name ‘Bad Eagle’) and college professor, described an interaction that took place in one of his classes. (excerpted) “LOOK, DR. YEAGLEY, I don’t see anything about my culture to be proud of. It’s all nothing. My race is just nothing.” The girl was white. She was tall and pretty, with amber hair and brown eyes. For convenience’ sake, let’s call her “Rachel.” I had been leading a class on social psychology, in which we discussed patriotism – what it means to be a people or a nation. The discussion had been...

    The left has moved beyond indoctrination through biased textbooks and false narratives. Now, our kids are being taught to channel their anger in protest. For years, conservatives have been sounding the alarm about anti-American indoctrination in public schools. TheyÂ’ve pointed out the dangers of mainstreaming of Howard ZinnÂ’s A PeopleÂ’s History of the United States. TheyÂ’ve exposed the racialism of the 1619 Project. Unfortunately, however, the situation in public schools is far worse than the mere presence of propaganda.Theoretically, parents can resist the dominant paradigm by explaining that itÂ’s just the teacherÂ’s opinion, and providing a counter-narrative at home. But...

    Sun Port Charlotte ^ | June 20, 2020 | Grace Dickinson
    It'd be great if racism didn't exist. If you didn't have to give your kid an explanation for why a person clutched a bag as a black man walked by. If black families didn't have to hold multiple versions of "the talk" in hopes that their child doesn't become the next Michael Brown or George Floyd. But that's not our current reality, nor has it been across our nation's entire history. As psychologist Beverly Tatum puts it, anti-blackness is a smog, one we're breathing in everywhere, knowingly or not. "Cultural racism—the cultural images and messages that affirm the assumed superiority...

    My children attend the public middle and high schools in a suburb of Boston. Since George Floyd's death, school officials have been emailing parents on almost a daily basis about racism. Their goal is to train children to be "anti-racists". Here are three recent emails they sent, with names changed. I bet lots of schools are doing this, especially in progressive areas. *************************************************** June 7, 2020 Dear Parents and Guardians, I hope you are doing well.

    ANALYSIS/OPINION: Courtesy of our educational infrastructure having been transformed into leftist indoctrination centers, the result is politicians who care only about ideology where citizens are collateral damage in their march toward a leftist utopia. Our media is populated with news-actors who are similarly bound to their teachers’ idols of social justice, political correctness and identity politics. All of our institutions are suffering from the twin masters of identity politics and woke philosophy. In New York City during the riots, two individuals were arrested for attempting to bomb a marked New York Police Department cruiser with a Molotov cocktail. Upon arrest,...

    In 2020 many memes pay homage to the high school and college seniors who were supposed to have a commencement and walk up in robes and square hats to receive diplomas. That is how civilized societies reward teenagers and young adults for wrapping up four years of general education. But the coronavirus changes everything, in the way money behaves in the Cyndi Lauper song “Money Changes Everything.” I wish I could be like the millions of people who can turn out a fulsome praise to make everyone feel warm and fuzzy. Instead, I’d like to pay honor to the class...

    The World Health Organization (WHO), for which the Trump administration has halted U.S. funding pending a review, advises that in the sex education programs in Europe children age four and under be given information about "early childhood masturbation" and the "right to explore gender identities." In addition, for children ages four to six, the WHO recommends they be given information "about friendship and love towards people of the same sex" and "same-sex relationships," and be guided to develop "an open, non-judgmental attitude."

    When Common Core first crept upon us from the Gates Foundation and other coevals, and then came into being in most states for real in 2010, it was hailed as just the thing to turn the tide on America's falling educational standards. President Obama's longtime education secretary, Arne Duncan hailed it as this: "the Common Core State Standards may prove to be the single greatest thing to happen to public education in America since Brown v. Board of Education." ... Obama himself claimed it made everything so much better:  So bottom line is: higher graduation rates, higher college attendance rates, more money for...

    America's colleges are rife with corruption. The financial squeeze resulting from COVID-19 offers opportunities for a bit of remediation. Let's first examine what might be the root of academic corruption, suggested by the title of a recent study, "Academic Grievance Studies and the Corruption of Scholarship." The study was done by Areo, an opinion and analysis digital magazine. By the way, Areo is short for Areopagitica, a speech delivered by John Milton in defense of free speech. Authors Helen Pluckrose, James A. Lindsay and Peter Boghossian say that something has gone drastically wrong in academia, especially within certain fields within...

    Parents practicing “social distancing” in the coming weeks should use this period to get closer to their child’s school assignments. KEY TAKEAWAYS 1. Coronavirus is interrupting life in general and education specifically. 2. When parents know what is being taught, they can effectively advocate for meaningful change. 3. When parents send children back to brick-and-mortar schools, they should do so ready to raise questions, prepared with more information. Coronavirus is interrupting life in general and education specifically. As parents in the U.S. adjust to school closures and the potential for their K-12 child’s coursework to continue online, families should...

    Would you live behind the wall? The democrat-socialist vision of Utopia? The end result from years of communal indoctrination? The Walls of governmental safety? Where would you want to live? It’s been almost a decade since we first asked the question. You might not have to make the choice, but progressive-socialists are ensuring your children or grandchildren are going to have to decide…. Where is the best hope for their dreams, inside the walls or outside? How will liberty and freedom be defined, and considering the direction, where will it be located in the future? Think about it….. Where would...

    There are many drastic changes being made to our lives as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. But what few people appreciate is that Britain has embarked on one of the greatest educational and social experiments in our history. In any normal year, schools would reconvene in two weeks' time after the Easter holidays for the summer term. Not this year. Millions of children of school age, with the exception of those who are considered vulnerable or whose parents are in key jobs, will have to adjust to working from home for as long as six months. It is an...

    The National Association of Scholars (NAS) has produced a report titled "Social Justice Education in America." Written by David Randall, it defines, describes, and delineates many of the destructive and deceptive ideas behind the innocent-sounding social justice programs that have mushroomed in American institutions of higher learning. According to this December 2019 report, "in the last twenty years, a generation of academics and administrators has transformed higher education into an engine of progressive political advocacy." Identity politics plays a major role in how social justice will be administered. Social justice activists work to increase the "state's coercive power" to decide...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is promising as part of his “education” plan to send what he calls “child development specialists” into the homes of Americans who have young children. The program was initiated under Obamacare. “President Biden will double funding for home visiting so more families benefit from this program every year,”
