Sweden’s devolution from being a fairly harmless social welfare nation into the nanny state from hell is a cautionary tale of well intentioned liberalism run amok. A major symptom is the government-knows-best attitude regarding education, and the little citizens better shape up if they want to get along. The specific problem with education started in 2010 [...]
Former Senator Rick Santorum observed the other day that universities are indoctrination factories of liberalism. That’s hardly news, but discussing the obvious is becoming more necessary in these conflicted times.
Rick Santorum: Left uses college for “indoctrination”, CBS, January 25, 2012
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said Wednesday that “the left” uses universities to indoctrinate young people [...]
It’s a crime what many universities do to impressionable young minds. Freshmen students go in expecting an advanced education with intellectual stimulation arising from the debate of great ideas. Instead they undergo liberal reprogramming that would make Pol Pot proud.
For some reason, cultural Marxists are crazy for white guilt. Apparently worship of the great god [...]
I’ve been reading Ann Coulter’s new book Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America which examines emotional groupthink and its negative consequences. So expressions of the mob have become particularly fascinating.
Coulter notes that the full flowering of the mob came during the French Revolution, in which the mob’s Reign of Terror caused the deaths [...]
Your tax dollars at work; stimulus sub-category. . .
The Omaha school system ordered up a pile of diversity training books to give to every staff member, from teachers to custodians, at a cost of $130K. (Diversity agitprop doesn’t come cheap.)
The school board apparently believes that teachers must be indoctrinated with diversity ideology (aka cultural proficiency), [...]
There’s no question that the liberals at PBS crank out pro-diversity propaganda like Energizer bunnies swilling cappuccinos, such as the recent puff piece “Welcome to Shelbyville” promoting misogynous hostile Somalis as fine immigrant material.
Sesame Street is a major brainwashing arm to influence the kiddies, pushing hard on issues that can be framed for impressionable young [...]
There’s no limit to the lengths liberals will go to protect lawbreaking foreigners and betray citizens, particularly in the capital of Mexifornia.
The latest assault on sovereignty and public safety comes from the leftist San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, He recently succeeded in getting a bill passed that would permit state counties to “opt out” [...]
After the shooting of Rep. Gabriel Giffords by a disturbed college dropout, I wrote that the crime was a failure of the community to demand mental health treatment for the young man, rather than of gun control (e.g. PBS Examines Mental Health Intervention in Light of Giffords Shooting).
Pima Community College knew very well that Jared [...]
Kids these days may have fancy digital gizmos, but they miss out on a lot of great experiences from traditional America, because the loony liberal educational establishment wants to stamp out customs with any Christian content. The goal is to make America safe for diversity, where no one believes in anything.
Christmas has been a big [...]
Since the Dems got shellacked in the 2010 election, they have tried to paint Tea Party citizens as “extreme” — as if demanding responsible spending of Washington were somehow excessive.
Sen. Harry Reid predicted that grass-roots financial conservatism would quickly disappear when members became disinterested. Recent reports from the dinosaur media have suggested that the Tea [...]
I saw bit and pieces on news shows of this undercover video showing an NPR executive schmoozing for dollars with men identified as terrorist sympathizers, but watching the whole thing at once is quite a tour of liberal condescension. Attitudes range from the university (“liberal because it’s intellectual”) to the Tea Party (“racist, racist people”).
It’s not exactly news that open-borders enthusiasts employed in the media strive daily to blur the line between immigrants and illegal aliens, often by leaving out the “illegal” adjective till late in the story if it is mentioned at all. Sometimes I fantasize about printing out a few thousand copies of the word “illegal” and [...]
