  • 'Crime is made up': Woke teachers force middle school pupils to listen to BLM activists claim black people who commit crime are being 'enslaved' by being sent to jail and society is being ruined by 'white supremacy and capitalism'

    A group of Black Lives Matter activists told Indiana middle school students during a spring 2020 lecture that they live in a world where 'crime is made up' and black people are more likely to be 'enslaved' for their actions. Video of the talk - which featured Indy10 BLM activists Jessica Louise, Kyra Jay Harvey, Michelle Anastasia and Leah Derray - was recently leaked by Tony Kinnett, district science coordinator and instructional coach for Indianapolis Public Schools. The footage shows how teachers permitted the guest speakers to tell students they were living in a 'misogynistic, masculine society' that uses white...

    A dean at San Diego State University described the "Right’s agenda" on Twitter as one of racism, unintelligence, and inequality while also using the word "stench" to identify conservatives. "Just so we’re clear on the Right’s agenda: racism good, abortion bad, money good, women bad, capitalism good, sustainability bad, stupidity good, science bad, power good, equality bad, white people good, nonwhite people bad. Stench, indeed," SDSU’s dean of the College of Arts and Letters, Dr. Monica Casper, tweeted on December 1 and first reported by College Fix.

    "By choosing your courses carefully, you can avoid the progressive sermonizing that passes for scholarship in some departments, but everyone has to undergo the orientation and first-year programs. You may have come to study computer science or literature or biochemistry, but first you’ll have to learn about social justice, environmental sustainability, gender pronouns, and microaggressions. You may have been planning to succeed by hard work, but first you’ll have to acknowledge your privilege or discover your victimhood. If you arrived at college hoping to broaden your intellectual horizons, you’ll quickly be instructed which ideas are off-limits." Read it and weep

    What are the characteristics of a good teacher? Many would cite qualities such as mastery of the relevant subjects and high academic standards. Others might stress a positive attitude and engaging classroom manner. For most people, political opinions are likely to rank low among these priorities. According to a report in EdWeek, though, that's what an increasing number of public schools are emphasizing. Adopting a practice that's already widespread in higher education, many districts are now considering applicants' "cultural competency." In other words, they're making progressive political views a requirement of the job. To be fair, advocates of such efforts...

    KINGSPORT, Tenn. - Matthew Hawn checked his phone to see if the wait was finally over. It had been five months since he was fired for teaching about White privilege at a high school in rural Tennessee. Two months since he had fought to regain his job at an emotional three-day hearing, becoming a symbol of the acrimonious debate over the way race, racism and history should be taught in America's schools. A lifelong resident of Kingsport, Hawn was well aware his liberal views made him an outlier in his overwhelmingly White, mostly conservative community. But that had never mattered...

    To make sense of the current war on the family—and make no mistake, there is one—we must travel back to early 20th-century revolutionary Russia and then pass by Hungary on our way home. Because, odd as it may seem, recent snapshots from across our nation are all related. The Department of Justice targets parents for challenging the school’s racialist curriculum. Police officers arrest a dad after he exposes that his daughter was raped in her school’s bathroom by a boy in a skirt. A politician declares, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” These scenarios...

    PORTLAND, Ore. — A new charter school focused on the BIPOC community is coming to the east side of Portland. The Reynolds School District recently approved the charter for Holla, a nonprofit mentorship program already at work in the district. Executive director and founder Eric Knox says the curriculum will prioritize minority voices. “This school is open for any kid -- racially, culturally, whatever -- that wants to be a part of this. But we want to come from a Black, brown and indigenous perspective because that perspective, to be honest with you, isn't heard,” he said. He says it's...

    The school called every single family that was affected, vowing to be “totally transparent,” according to the Charles City Press. However, parents who have spoken to The Iowa Standard said there was no mention of the fact students were not allowed to leave the room when they asked during the reading. The Charles City Press reports there will be a special board meeting Monday afternoon to discuss the matter. The district told The Charles City Press two teachers are on leave and being investigated. One parent downloaded the story and listened to it. “It’s pretty intense,” the parent said. “The...

    Social and emotional learning is the latest trend at your child's school. SEL sounds beneficial, but that's a disguise. In truth, it indoctrinates kids with extremist ideas many parents don't condone. On Nov. 22, the Hartford Courant reported that West Hartford, Connecticut, elementary school parents are in an uproar. They're complaining that teachers are putting words such as "nonbinary" on the chalkboard and telling kids, including kindergarteners, they can live life as a gender different from what they were assigned at birth. Parents were told by school authorities that they can't opt their children out. Most Americans think parents should...

The question from a Whitney High School test issued Nov. 4 asked students,... "A group of complete idiots is".... followed by four options: "KKK," "all of Florida," "Fox News," or "Texans ," according to a report. The parents of the students said they did not wish to speak to the media out of fear that their child would become a target. A statement from Whitney High School confirmed that "disciplinary steps" would be taken against the faculty members...

    CHICAGO — Chicago’s public school system has seen another enrollment drop with 10,000 fewer students this academic year since last year for a total of approximately 330,000 students. The enrollment decline, which has been happening each year for the past decade, comes as other big city districts including New York and Los Angeles have seen enrollment declines this year as well. Chicago Public Schools managed to keep its ranking as the nation’s third-largest school district, but Miami-Dade County Public Schools in Florida reports coming close to Chicago. Racial demographics have largely remained the same since last year. About 47% of...

    Smearing parents fed up with their kids’ schools as “domestic terrorists” seems to be a wild, incendiary charge with little basis in reality. Yet it’s the basis on which the U.S. attorney general has convened an FBI task force to surveil and intimidate parents who object to what their children are being taught, and how they are being treated, with public tax dollars. The organization that colluded with the Justice Department to create the pretext for chilling voters’ speech has backed down, but the FBI threat remains. School lockdowns have clarified and accelerated the deep, irreconcilable differences among American parents...

    It's not surprising that a high school would be sent into lockdown over a student not wearing a mask. We've seen it happen before. But we've seen it happen in the socialist paradise of California. Wyoming is supposed to be a red state that is pro-freedom and unlike Joe Biden and the people who control Joe Biden, believes in science. School mask mandates aren't science. They're barely even "the" science. Yet Laramie High School in Wyoming was shut down because Grace Smith, a junior, didn't mask up.

    Palestinian militant group Hamas announced Thursday that it had a large number of children signing up for its annual summer camp where youths are trained in militancy. The annual summer camps called “Talayiea Al Tahrir” or “Vanguards of Liberation” seek to “ignite the flame of jihad in the generation of liberation, sow Islamic values ​​and prepare the expected victory army for the liberation of Palestine, Allah willing,” according to a Thursday news release from Hamas’ armed wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades.

    When Obama nominated Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court, we were promised he was a moderate—but what moderate does this? One of the recurring news stories over the last few months is that parents are speaking out at school board meetings to protest Critical Race Theory, masks, and transgender pressure in their public schools. The schools respond by trying to silence them and there have been a few minor scuffles that local police quickly settled. The National School Boards Association (“NSBA”) responded by demanding help from the FBI—and “moderate” U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland has agreed. George Floyd’s drug overdose...

Simpson’s explanation of the strategy laid out by these two Columbia University professors was picked up by many of the leading voices of the...

    Fed up with parents' complaints about what schools are teaching their children, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) requested that President Biden add these parents to the terror watch list. In addition to the usual parent complaints about the inferior quality of the education their children are getting are objections to some questionable content in the curiculum—like critical race theory, pornography, sexually explicit role-playing, and book burning. NSBA President Viola Garcia insisted that "parents lack the expertise to decide what lessons their children should be taught. Professional educators need the autonomy to make these decisions for the parents. Parents who...

    I really don’t know what to say about this one. How dense do you have to be? How far does one have to go to come up with stuff like this about the 9/11 terror attacks? Today is the 20th anniversary of that heinous day. Nearly 3,000 Americans lost their lives when radical Islamic terrorists hijacked airliners and crashed them into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. United 93 crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania after passengers tried to overpower the hijackers. The 9/11 Commission concluded that if these passengers didn’t take action, United 93’s likely target would have been the U.S....
