Let’s see what the old man is peddling right now. “Schools push a curriculum of propaganda.” The evil educators again. Maybe they’re hectoring the impressionable students with ‘slavery’ rather than instilling in them a love for our Ronald Reagan. That’s evil enough for me. Which reminds — remember when the Texas school board tried to re-classify American slavery as “Atlantic Triangular Trade”? What a howler. A real business/enterprise hot one. That’d be like calling Dear Ronnie a “Commie Lover.” Or saying he was “Animated And Sensate.” Don’t be silly.
Speaking of ole’ Arms For The Ayatollah, remember his 1980 campaign? In his triumphant march to the drooler presidency, the candidate professed his love for “State’s Rights” before the assembled people of Neshoba County, Mississippi. Ah, the good old days. The onlookers included some of the local police and Sheriff’s deputies, dba the Ku Klux Klan, who beat, shot and then buried those three niggah/jewboy Yankees back when LBJ was running for election. As the Klansmen saw themselves victims of Federal “civil rights” malarkey, and Reagan, for campaign purposes, touted the government as a fascist institution, everybody got along mighty fine. Ronnie went on to win every state in the South save Jimmy Carter’s Georgia and swept the election. Don’t know if that actually counts for propaganda any more than merely, say, political racism.
But that’s neither here nor there. Oh George, what’s it this time?
The three R’s — formerly reading, ’riting and ’rithmetic — now are racism, reproduction and recycling. Especially racism. Consider Wisconsin’s Department of Public Instruction.
Wisconsin’s DPI, in collaboration with the Orwellian-named federal program VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America; the “volunteers” are paid), urged white students to wear white wristbands “as a reminder about your privilege, and as a personal commitment to explain why you wear the wristband.”
Where is George getting his news from? Townhall.com. Honestly. His Eminence now uses the same fever bog to source his editorials that Chuck Norris uses to wipe the HITLER! from his shoes. Yoo-hoo, George? They don’t make clown noses your size any more? You couldn’t find your foot with the missus’ shiny revolver? Here’s the yawn-debunk, courtesy the same Wisconsin DPI:
It was not a VISTA document, nor was it a Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) document . .
To be absolutely clear, no DPI official has asked, requested, or
encouraged any school district, educator, or student to wear any
wristband, and none of our VISTA volunteers have had any children put on any wristbands.
So George was lying about that. Even if the thing were true, consider the prospect of TALKING ABOUT WHITE PRIVILEGE!!!1!1! Boo! Seriously boo!
In Delavan-Darien High School’s “American Diversity” curriculum, students were urged to verify white privilege by visiting a Wal-Mart toy section and counting the white and black dolls. After objections, the school district is reconsidering this curriculum.
This source: Todd from Fox News radio. Black dolls! YYEEEEAAARRGGHH!
No corner of the country is immune to propaganda pretending to be pedagogy. Lincoln Brown of KVEL-AM in Vernal, Utah, says one student from the University of Utah showed him required reading that told students to “list ways your family may have colluded with or benefited from the exploitation of African-Americans.”
George’s latest source? Townhall.com once again. A student! AAAAIIIEEEYYYY . .
But now. Let us, like post-earthquake responders walking among the Haitian dead, tally the damage here. Hmm? There were white-privilege wristbands that never existed. Check. There were visits to Wal-Mart children’s aisles that likely never happened. Check-check. And there was a certain someone who got pissed about his homework. Check checker zulu-niner-geronimo check and all this adds up to . . hmm see . . carry the conflagration . .
And Americans wonder why their generous K-12 financing (higher per pupil than all but three of the 34 Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development nations) has done so little to improve reading, math and science scores.
The failure of U.S. Education. No choice but to defund the thing now, of course.
