PATRIOTIC Education!? WOW!

 I’m not thrilled they’re calling it a PATRIOTIC EDUCATION…In my opinion, it surely IS patriotic, but it is THE TRUTH first.  And, of course, in America today, we can lose people over the word PATRIOTIC.  Imagine?

I watched a wonderful film last night and that jerk Ben Mankowicz afterwards (as he often does) had to mention how the film was made at the time of the McCarthy era….“when capitalism had failed out country.”    Um..WHAT?    Ya, he’s the guy who shows patriotic war films then complains they’re not reality, they’re too patriotic.

But, my point here today  isn’t about that as much as it is THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT….You are SO RIGHT.  Howard Zinn is a stinking lie….the 1610 Project is a lie………….and the 1776 Commission ROCKS.

A friend and I spoke last night and both of us thought that maybe these stupid 1619 suggestions to our children that parents shouldn’t be respected, that America really started when Blacks came to America (!), etc., might just be what pushes our kids OUT of public schools and into HOME SCHOOLING.   Let’s face it, after COVID, there just might be a LOT of parents who decide to continue home schooling so NOW is the time for Trump to make very  clear what a horror our children are being taught about our great country.

THOUGHTS on the 1619 Project vs the 1776 Project?   Thank GOD for Bob Woodson!

  1. I don’t want to be critical of Trump, but it falls on him and his appointee, Betsy DeVoss to play the tune and make the minions dance to it.
    Like Barr talking at Hillsdale about junior prosecutors doing their own thing and not following the script set by our elected administration. DO SOMETHING! Fire people. Start with Wray.

  2. As I said on Facebook…

    FINALLY! A POTUS is speaking out against the dangers of Zinn-ism, a “method” of teaching American history, a method which has been wreaking damage for more than 20 years! No other POTUS ever has spoken out on this, which started to gain a lot of traction by 1990. I know that for a fact: in 1988 her son came home from a small college in West Virginia to celebrate Thanksgiving; he spouted anti-American drivel throughout the whole meal — until I blew my stack during dessert.

    A GOP failure to speak out!

    Reagan didn’t speak out and condemn Zinn-ism. Neither did George H.W. Bush. Neither did George W, Bush.

    EPIC FAIL ON THE PART OF THE GOP! Yes, I’m shouting. I’m angry at the GOP.

    I never expected the Dems to speak out. I’m sure that I don’t have to say why.

    Destroy a country’s history and you destroy the country. Allowing the Fed. Dept of Education and Teachers union to exist is failure of American politics.

    1619 is a tool tool to try to further destroy history. 1776 project? Waste of time when the evil educators are allowed to remain unfettered. Imagine such a thing happening in Russia. Not possible. Communism is evil but it at least protects itself.

    @AOW – The repubs are worse than useless and still not as evil as the dems. Trump is the only representation Americans have in government. One that is supposed to be by and for the people and is not even close to reality nor has been for a long time.

    @Ed, my thoughts exactly on Barr.

  4. Kid,

    Yeah, that’s a huge problem.

    BUT…

    Because of this virtual schooling, more parents are aware of what their children are being taught — and not being taught.

    I know many good Christian parents who turn their children over to the public education system. Somehow, they think, “My kid will be all right and not believe lies.”

    No!

    School students today are immersed in Zinnism in courses other than social studies. Hell, they are even brainwashed in math classes.

    Six hours a day of being dipped into Zinnism.

    Thanks, everybody….mostly agree.

    We’ve been sleeping through our children learning to hate America…….to the point that the word PATRIOTIC repulses them, becomes a mockery, anything America ever did is outweighed by……RACISM! Ridiculous.

    Yes, parents weren’t too happy when a few teachers demanded that parents not be allowed to listen in on their virtual teaching of the kids…IMAGINE? Sorry, teachers, you rang that bell and were too dumb to know there’s no way to control who’s watching…that says a lot right there.

    AOW’s right…..I have a neighbor who I don’t know very well but reaSonably well…her little girls were swimming and I was sitting with her mom outside my back patio gates talking a little about what’s going on in America……how worried I was for our kids. She said “My girls will be alright.”!

    Ya, right. I just hope she’s smarter than that and just didn’t want to get too into it with me.

    I suspect that few Americans realize the extent to which communists have infiltrated our public education system. AOW knows, and so do I. Sit through a few random “education” classes at any university and you’ll see for yourself how teaching candidates are brainwashed into believing progress in education demands embracing the progressive political agenda. It isn’t only confined to education colleges, either. Try to find any history department that hasn’t decreased the number of classes in US history in favor of African or gender studies and note that any liberal arts colleges that do offer courses in US history, the curriculum incorporates Zinn-ism. Agenda 21 is alive and well in all university colleges. Combine this with the shift to the left in our secondary programs, so that by the time a high school graduate enrolls in a teacher’s college, he or she is already prepared to accept the drivel of leftist professors and their assistants. It gets worse in graduate school.

    Then look inside state boards of education, who control state curriculum, state textbook adoptions, and order state “high stakes” testing programs. I wish everyone here could see one of those high stake tests … it would blow your mind how easy they are for even a moron to pass. Textbook publishers give the SBOE what they want. Geography books of filled from cover to cover with cultural myths involve native Americans and the “beauty of Islam.” US history books contain chapter after chapter of false history of white culture. Now look, I’m not suggesting that history must in some way be altered to produce “right wing” children. Not at all. There have been some unhappy events in our nation’s history, and we must be able to discuss them subjectively. We must be able to provide instruction within the context of the event(s)—and I could go on and on about this, but I won’t. Middle and high school teachers should be offering US history as summary classes, a basic framework, that will become the foundation of more in depth study in college … but that isn’t what’s happening. These text books and their leftist-whacko teachers insist that white society is demonic in what they did to the Indians, with absolutely no discussion about the tens of thousands of white settlers murdered and raped by some Indian populations. Now … how is that balanced? There is no discussion at all about how Islam was the main conduit of black slavery, and there is no coverage about the number of whites who were enslaved by Moslems, as well. There is no revelation about what Democrats have done to black Americans or the American Indian, either. Answer: why do blacks and Indians live in slum conditions throughout America? It isn’t an issue of race … it is an issue of Democratic politics aided and abetted by congressional RINOs.

    So, here’s the bottom line. Leftists educators are brainwashing specialists, who’ve been at this now since around the early 1900s. They produced the communist movements in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Hollywood grabbed a hold of this like a kid with a Hershey Bar. Those kids grew up, had families, and indoctrinated their kids. Some of those became teachers, in public school and in our universities. Some grew up to become State Department officials, or educationalists in the federal bureaucracy, and some now occupy important positions in SBOEs and State Election Commissions. Some are judges. Some work for the FBI. Some are lawyers in the DOJ. Most of these never outgrew their early brainwashing … so if you want to know how bad it is, if you want to know why our society is such a horrid trash pile today … this is why. Now if you think that we can, today, turn this around, I have a bridge for sale in Brooklyn.

    For about 25 years, I’ve said American freedom is going to be our downfall. I believe it’s clear today.
    FREE SPEECH has nearly been our downfall…..SO SO much EVIL hides behind FREE SPEECH.

    Imagine that small crowd at the hospital where the two L.A. cops were rushed after having been shot…..chanting “F*** THEM WE HOPE THEY DIE” and STANDING IN FRONT OF THE AMBULANCE ENTRANCES…PREVENTING others from being rushed to help in the hospital. ALl the sheriff could Tweet was “PLEASE MOVE OUT OF THE WAY” WHAT? ARREST THEM!! They could have caused death of someone in an ambulance unable to get help in time.

    AND, if anyone actually does burn the White House…as hundreds of activists have been aDvised to do, they should be SHOT ON SIGHT, not arrested, not lolly coddled so their RIGHTS aren’t trampled on…..SHOT.

    Yes, you and I well know about the destruction of education, a destruction which is taking America down right now.

    I’m not optimistic about the future.

    We have two generations immersed in Zinn-ism. I’ve even seen it in several homeschool moms. They are fixated on and totally convinced of America’s faults. I’m sure that they believe that America is guilty of genocides, white supremacy, systemic racism — the whole spectrum.

    Recently, when I tried to educate some of the homeschool parents two years ago, they pulled their kids out. They had decided I was a nut job. And these are Christian homeschool parents!

    I didn’t have these issues with homeschoolers 12 years ago.

    @ Z … people have already died in this “civil war” … all part of Obama’s “fundamental change to America” presidency. The new round of civil unrest began with SpringFest, then Santa Cruz May Day riot, Occupy Oakland, Madison, Chicago, Flatbush, Bundy Standoff, Ferguson, New York, Berkeley, Baltimore, St. Louis, Oregon, Charlotte, Democrat Spring, Sacramento, Dakotas, Anaheim, on-and-on. We should make no mistake about this, and we do no favors to the American people by trying to soft-sell these anarchists/seditionists. BLM my ass. We are NOW embroiled in a very (un) civil war and more people will die before it’s over–which, unless we begin to move stridently toward stopping it, whatever it takes, could number in the tens of thousands.

    I would NOT use the word ‘patriotic.’ I never adopt the left’s language, but no need to wave a red flag in front of the bull. How about just the facts? Deconstructing the proctologist’s view of America. Yes, American history is a ‘miracle’ when you’ve studied so many others. As Tom Sowell says, poverty is man’s natural state. Instead of studying “how to get rid of poverty” they need to learn how wealth is created, and certainly this country was a key part of that. But won’t be if Zinnites gets their way.

    I try to only send short videos, (and I wrote 8 min. on the Biden-Sowell showdown I sent last night – it’s only 5) so I did not share the hour interview with Thomas Sowell (at 90!!) on his latest book: Charter Schools and Their Enemies. But WELL WORTH hearing the great Sowell lay ’em out. He said he put more time into this book than any other because it’s such an urgent issue or we’re lost. If anyone’s interested: https://www.hoover.org/research/economist-looks-90-tom-sowell-charter-schools-and-their-enemies

    Yes, yes, I have economic porn nights where I geek out half the evening on Sowell, Glenn Loury and others. Last night, it was the “Black Wisdom Matters” series. I’m up to part 3.

    Many schools have fought to make sure parents are NOT present when their child is at the computer class so their evil deeds don’t see the light, so to speak.

    As for Biden, a line in your post reminded me he vowed to do away with “shareholder capitalism” a few months ago. Whaaat?

    @z “COULD there be a time we’d shoot our own citizens?”

    As Mustang points out it is already happening. And to the “we” being the Government, Military, Natl Guard, Police, Mall Cops.., yes definitely. Happens a lot already.
    If “we” means you and me, then speaking for me, I’d shoot to kill in a self-defense situation in a heartbeat. I could kill a person trying to kill me easier then I could kill an animal for any reason. The person is trying to kill me because it is evil. The animal only because it is hungry or afraid.

    As far as the pendulum swinging, too late for that. It’s communism or America – pick one folks, ain’t no in between. These people are crazy, violent, and totally unwilling to listen to other opinions. Time for talk is long past.

    Look at what Biden says about Trump in his campaign speeches. He says those things becasue the DNC believes there are a significant number of people who actually will believe that S*, and unfortunately, there are lots of people who believe that S*. All of it. This ain’t Dukakis or even Barry obama campaigning for God’s sake. This is more satirical and absurd than what I can come up with on most days for humor and I can come up with some off the wall stuff.
