I predicted early on in the Covid panic that public schools and their teachers would be sowing the seeds of their own demise if they insisted on staying home out of “safety”. It turns out that parents don’t like it very much when teachers do not teach, the product (education) is bad, and school boards attack them for simply wanting their kids educated and not indoctrinated. Private schools and home-schooling are thriving. The death of the woke leftist public education system is the best thing that could happen to this country.
He is showing the way on how to crush the Marxist Democrat Party. His latest endeavor is to sign a bill mandating that Florida schools teach actual civics including the dangers and evil of communism:
This is a move so obvious, yet so brilliant that I cannot believe another governor hasn’t thought of it. DeSantis has consistently shown himself to be smart, bold, courageous and absolutely unafraid of the leftist mob. Among his accomplishments: protecting Florida’s vulnerable population from Covid and having a mortality rate far below most “blue” states despite an aged population. Refusing to shut down and crush Florida’s economy which is now booming like few others. Presiding over a historical in-migration of refugees from failing blue states. Banning critical race theory and now this. I suspect other governors will copy his latest…we need 20-30 states to adopt such truth-based education, not the left-wing America-hating racialist trash that Democrats want and leftist academics have been successful promoting for the better part of the last 25 years.
The left is utterly terrified of DeSantis and for good reason. Expect the attacks on him to accelerate, but with little effect.
And then over at formerly excellent Northwestern University in Evanston Illinois, where literally everything these days seems to be about race or perversion, you have this lunacy:
Now I know it is only one student’s crazy opinion, but don’t kid yourself. This is quite indicative of the type of student NU is attracting and the education they are getting. There has not been a single student at NU who has actually experienced Jim Crow laws in decades, but there it is. Any parent who send their kid here needs to have their head examined if they are not a raving Marxist. Having a Northwestern degree used to be an accomplishment…now it is becoming a source of embarrassment.
Well, it is. They cite grade inflation, affirmative action and political correctness. I have been saying the the jig is up for “elite” institutions in the US. Higher academia is failing miserably and needs to be burned to the ground. Maybe the faculty at Harvard is waking up. The entire leftist academic-industrial complex needs to be gutted.
Even in the leftist haven of Manhattan. Two recent happenings illustrate that many parents have had enough of woke leftism pushing critical race theory, anti-science transgenderism and outright racism against whites. It is about time, but nonetheless promising.
In the first a father went public with his blistering critique of his daughter’s elite private school while removing her from the institution. It is one of the best takedowns of leftist academia I have seen.
Apparently the Marxist dope who runs the Brearley School believes that this latter traumatized hundreds. Grow the F#ck up! This is a culture war the left started.
But at the Dalton School, things are not going so well for the woke leftists, as parents have apparently forced some administrators out:
And are in turn trying to destroy America. An alternate title for this article could have been “Revenge of The Hippies”. The author does an excellent job documenting how 1960’s radicals infected higher education in the 1980’s and 90’s and gradually transformed traditional, classical fact and reason based education into agenda driven indoctrination. They in turn “educated” a whole new generation (the millennials and Gen Z-ers) who are today’s cancel culture social-justice warriors. These people flock to the fields of education, destroying primary and secondary schools, media and “journalism” (he correctly calls it “infotainment”), technology, social media and government. The evidence he offers is overwhelming: as late as the 1980’s college faculty identified as liberal or conservative at roughly a 50-50 split. In fact I am old enough to recall that my elite, now horribly leftist alma mater was relatively conservative as late as that era. I would not go anywhere near the place now. Nowadays most “elite” colleges and universities are virtual leftist monopolies, self identified.
The article is long but very important: (Higher) Education Is Destroying America – New Discourses
Long, but an interesting and important read to understand the new American left.
This is possibly the most racist thing I have seen this year. That’s saying something. Coca-Cola is telling its employees to be “less white”. The conclusion is that some powers that be at the company think whites are inherently racist. They just called probably half their customers racist. Good business move. I will not be buying their products anymore. Maybe this is part of a business strategy to focus more on Asia and Africa, I don’t know. Next we will hear from them that whiteness is “toxic”, like masculinity. This would be laughable if it were not being taught in a lot of schools.
This is very damning. Northwestern, with one of the most prestigious so-called “journalism” schools in the world (I am not sure what they even teach in “journalism” anymore if it isn’t Marxism 101) has taken $340mm from the Qatar Foundation since 2012. Qatar is a well-known sponsor of Islamic terrorism. At a time when US colleges are coming under extreme scrutiny for taking money from foreign governments (China) and often not reporting it, this is a very bad look for one of America’s “prestigious” universities. Higher education in the US is really in trouble.
Two of them involve “higher education”, what a big surprise. An Asian researcher at Michigan State was fired for simply advancing “inconvenient” facts about police shootings. He should sue the crap out of MSU. Next, a young lady was threatened with having her admission to Marquette (a fake Catholic University) revoked for simply posting a pro-Trump video. Fortunately she fought it and has gotten a lot of support so Marquette appears to be backing down. Universities that do this should lose ALL federal funding. I would be just as outraged over this if a student was removed for communist beliefs as long as they were not violent. Free speech needs to be an absolute on college campuses.
One quick way to put an end to this is if alums stop making donations.
And finally, leftists are outraged that the CEO of Goya Foods met with the President. He basically told the leftists to pound sand. Finally a CEO with guts. A lot of the Fortune 500 companies should take notice.
