4-Year-Old Booted from Preschool for This Bizarre Reason


waving flagBy Michael Ware April 7, 2016

It is surprising to me how many people continue to allow We have been torn aparttheir children to be brainwashed in the state-run schools. It should not be a hard connection to make between the loss of our children and the fact that they attended the same education system. But, one would think that they would at least wait until the second grade to begin the mush mind program. But this is not the case.

Christian News reports

A four-year-old girl in Colorado has been booted from preschool after her mother expressed concern over diversity teaching in the classroom that included books on homosexuality and gender identity.

 R.B. Sinclair told the Denver Post this week that her daughter’s preschool teacher at Montview Community Preschool and Kindergarten had been reading books to the children on same-sex “couples” and about worms questioning their gender.

There seems to be no limit to how early they will start the reprograming of the children. Why would a preschooler need to learn about homosexuality? Why are we talking with them about sexuality at all? The reason is simple; falsehood takes longer to sink in.

These children have to hear this filth over and over before it becomes second nature to them. But does this not prove that they instinctively know that it is not normal or right? Does this not show that this is a perversion?

But the “Uneducators” see things differently or at least that is what they would have us believe.

Christian News continues

“Biases start as kids get older and start to see differences as negative. At a young age, kids are exploring all different kinds of things,” Kim Bloemen, director of early childhood education for the Boulder Valley School District, told the Denver Post. “It’s about just providing them with all these experiences.”engineering

The reality is we have left our moorings. We have nothing to keep us bound securely to truth. Without God’s word or Law, there are no bounds to our perversion. I discuss this in my book: An Everlasting Covenant. Buy at Amazon.

Outrageous! Public School Students Taught To ‘Pledge Allegiance To An International Flag’


waving flagPosted Friday, March 4th 2016 by Hannity.com Staff

It is widely accepted that American public schools are controlled by liberals. It seems like every day, we see new examples of American schoolchildren being indoctrinated with left-wing ideas. This latest example was brought to our attention by a concerned parent.

Kindergarten students from PS75, a public school in New York City, recently took part in a class project in which the children were made to create an American flag with the flags of other 22 other nations superimposed over the stripes. Below the flag read the words “We pledge allegiance to an International Flag.”

Check out the flag the kindergarten class created:

The flag is being auctioned off as a way to raise funds for the Parent Teacher Association. According to the description offered on the auction site:

The students made a beautifully painted stretched canvas American Flag and then applied flags from all the Spanish speaking countries onto the stripes of the American flag. All the children chose a flag to color using colored pencils and they were glued onto the larger American flag. The stars are cut canvas which are painted and decorated with REAL Swarovski Crystals (gold and crystal colored)!Death of a nation

The fun quote on the bottom is about unity and creating an environment in which everyone is welcome! “We pledge allegiance to an International Flag!” Our dual language classroom strives to be a place that everyone feels welcome! (Emphasis added)

Although the description claims that the flags are limited to “Spanish speaking countries”, the Russian flag is amongst those that are included.

This is the type of globalist indoctrination we have come to expect from the public school system, but telling impressionably young American children that their loyalty should lie with some nebulous idea of a global community rather than their own nation is a new low.

UPDATE: The auction site on which the flag was featured has taken down all images of the item as well as any description of it.

Minnesota Kindergarten Students Forced to Confront Gender Identity


waving flagReported by Kelsey Harkness / / February 29, 2016

An elementary school in Minnesota confronts the issue of transgender rights when a kindergarten boy begins identifying as a girl. (Photo: iStock)

It all started with a book: “My Princess Boy.”

On Oct. 14, 2015, the elementary school principal of a Minnesota charter school informed parents that in the coming days, the school would be taking steps to “support a student who is gender nonconforming.”

Their 5- and 6-year-old children, parents were told in an email, “will listen to various books that celebrate differences and will be teaching children about the beauty of being themselves.”Leftist Propagandist

One of those books, the principal noted, would be “My Princess Boy,” a story that centers on a boy who sometimes likes to do traditional girl things like wear dresses.engineering

In the email, the principal encouraged parents of kindergarten children to “have conversations at home about the appropriateness of comments or teasing relating to all protected classes,” specifically pertaining to gender identity.

Details regarding the gender non-conforming student at the school, Nova Classical Academy in St. Paul, Minn., were kept confidential. But shortly after that initial email went out, parents at Nova Classical Academy learned that the child was also in kindergarten.

Immediately, some parents raised concern about the issue of gender identity being introduced to their 5- and 6-year old children. The concept, they believed, is too complicated for kindergartners to grasp.AMEN

And although the school hadn’t yet announced any new restroom policies, parents were concerned about their children using bathrooms with students of the opposite sex. In their attempt to push back, parents grew frustrated with the school’s response. At least 10 students, The Daily Signal learned, transferred to another school.

One mother, who asked to remain anonymous to protect her daughter’s identity, said she transferred her child because the classmate was having a “traumatic” effect on her daughter.

“Our daughter—because she is a normal kindergartner who was raised in a family where we had some social norms regarding biological gender and sex—now she’s asking questions like, ‘How does a boy become a girl when they’re born with a penis?’ She has two brothers, so she’s wondering, how is this possible, as the boy is wearing a jumper and has ribbons and ponytails in his hair,” her mother said.

Another mother, whose daughter is still in the same class as the gender nonconforming child, described a similar effect. That mother also requested to remain anonymous.

“She said, ‘Mom, I think you can choose if you want to be a boy or a girl,’” the second mother said.

‘That Bothers Me’

Similar to how the debate over transgender rights has caused a culture war in states such as Washington and South Dakota, the situation at Nova Classical Academy also caused a rift in the tight-knit community.

The school is a competitive public charter school that consistently ranks high in school ratings. When it was granted its charter, Nova Classical Academy requested a waiver so that a majority of its school board members would be parents instead of educators. One goal of doing so, parents told The Daily Signal, was to foster parental involvement and oversight of curriculum.

“We as a school community go through processes that are very lengthy, but in the end it always ends up being a conversation and a win-win situation,” one mother said. “And this situation, this is not what happened.”

For example, this mother explained, deciding when to begin the gender and sex curriculum required “a  long, painful process.”

Eventually, parents and educators agreed the program would begin in fifth grade, and address the topic of being transgender in 10th grade. But now, they thought, that decision was being flipped on its head, and the school was bypassing parental input to introduce these topics starting at a younger age.engineering2

Parents were divided—many fully supported the reading of “My Princess Boy” and the curriculum that would go along with it. Some of those supporters launched a petition drive in which they and others—some from outside communities—could speak out.

“I am in favor of using materials such as this as part of the curriculum,” wrote Stephanie Schweser. “Teaching and promoting tolerance, understanding, and inclusion will better our school community and our community beyond.”

160226_gender-2_v2

“I fully support the reading of ‘My Princess Boy’ or another book that specifically addresses gender nonconformity,” added Josephine Chung on the same petition. “A book is a useful and necessary tool for educating our children.”Alinsky affect

Those who objected were particularly concerned because Nova Classical Academy is a K-12 school. Although the school had not yet addressed bathroom policies, their 5- and 6-year-old children, some parents feared, might now be forced to share a bathroom with a senior of the opposite sex.

“We are in a K-12 school, and that bothers me—there are some bathrooms that are shared. So I could have my daughter in the bathroom and a senior,” the mother whose kindergartner still attends the school told The Daily Signal, adding:

“If we start to desensitize our children at a young age that it’s fine—and right now, I’m not worried that something bad is going to happen to her in her elementary school, but that she would get used to this. And eventually she could get put in a situation where she could be in harm’s way, because she’s innocently in the bathroom with someone who intends to cause harm.”

Life Before and After Beyoncé’

Two months ago, Dave and Hannah Edwards, the parents of the gender nonconforming student at Nova Classical Academy, went public with their story in an interview with radio host Jack Rice. During that interview, Hannah Edwards attempted to explain her son’s identity.

“[W]hen we ask him what he prefers, he says, ‘I’m a boy and in my heart I’m a girl.’ And sometimes he’ll say he’s half and half, which is something you put in your coffee, but I say OK, that’s great.”Picture7

160226_gender-3_v2

Hannah Edwards said the change began around the age 2 after her son, Holden, watched Beyoncé perform at the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show:

“I kind of think of it as life before and after Beyoncé. Pretty soon it turned into an everyday occurrence, wanting to watch this 10-minute halftime show. And he started tying his blankets on his head, and dancing like her, and watching his reflection in the fireplace glass. That was, I think, the first time I noticed. It started becoming less of ‘he thinks this is interesting’ and more of ‘I am being Beyoncé; I am being a girl.’What did you say 04.jpg

The Daily Signal attempted to speak with Gender Justice, a group that is working with the Edwards family. They did not respond to a request for comment.

In the radio interview, the Edwardses suggested Holden had been subject to bullying in the classroom, and thus, the gender curriculum was necessary. But the real problem, they said, stems from parents who objectied to the school’s handling of their child.

“I would say his teacher has been pretty integral in stopping the bullying, at least in the classroom. I know that he comes to school now in the jumper, and that’s within the last month,” Holden’s father, Dave Edwards, said during the interview. He added:

“I feel comfortable with what’s happening in his small, little classroom world. It’s these other parents coming in and objecting or starting petitions. And I think that really comes from a place of fear and ignorance on their part.”DELUSIONAL

‘Understanding Gender Diversity’

Eric Williams, the school’s executive director, confirmed to The Daily Signal that in December, Nova Classical Academy invited the president of the National Association of School Psychologists, Todd Savage, “to educate the staff and community about gender nonconforming and transgender students.”engineering2

Parents who attended the event and spoke with The Daily Signal said they thought the session came from, in one parent’s words, ” a very progressive perspective.”you think

Screen Shot 2016-02-24 at 2.41.43 PM

During the session, Savage highlighted a number of “school issues” that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students face.

Screen Shot 2016-02-24 at 2.46.54 PM

The father who eventually removed his daughter from kindergarten at Nova Classical Academy over the situation said he had “no problem” with the presentation but thought it fell short in addressing his personal concerns.

“He had some specifics about how transgender kids have been oppressed in the past, and I think they’re legitimate,” the father said of Savage. “But he didn’t present anything in ways of addressing the argument of how the issue could be damaging for the education, especially of pre-adolescent kids. He didn’t address that issue at all.”

In an attempt to learn more, parents who objected to the book “My Princess Boy” organized their own informational session with a conservative  group, the Minnesota Family Council. Unlike the session with Savage, the school refused to associate itself with the event.

Multiple sources told The Daily Signal that advocates of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons—affiliated with Out Front, Gender Justice, and Transforming Family—attended the session. Five minutes before the event ended, parents said, the LGBT advocates lined the hallways leading to the exit holding signs that read, “We love our transgender kids.”Leftist Propagandist

“A piece of that was hard, because I just wanted to say I love transgender kids, too,” the father, who attended the meeting with an older daughter who continues to attend Nova Classical Academy, said. He added:

“This was so obviously orchestrated; their only purpose was to try to be intimidating. And my eighth-grade daughter was intimidated. It caused her stress and anxiety. And if you look at the definition of bullying, the irony of this whole thing is, that qualifies as bullying.”

 ‘No One’s Having That Conversation’

Four months after the lower school principal sent out the initial email, the situation is ongoing. In an attempt to quell concerns, Nova Classical Academy adopted an “emergency” policy for transgender and gender nonconforming students.

A parent at the school said that policy states:

1) Boys and girls may wear whichever uniform they want.
2) Students requesting access to a bathroom conforming to his or her gender identity will be granted or denied permission on a case-by-case basis.
3) Preferred gender pronouns also will be required on a case-by-case basis.Delusional Mental Illness Gibberish

Some parents were unhappy with the temporary solution and called on the school to answer one simple question: Will their elementary school children run into a student of the opposite sex in bathrooms and locker rooms?

So far, the school administrators have evaded that question by telling parents in a Q&A handout that “no student or family has made that request.”

Other parents are asking the school more daunting question: What kind of impact does introducing the concept of transgender and gender identity have on their 5- and 6-year-old children?

“I don’t think anyone has taken the time to think about what are the developmental stages of each age bracket and how might that superimpose something that is not natural into their development?” the mother who removed her daughter from the school said. “That piece to me, as a mom, is really, really valuable. No one’s having that conversation.”

The mother added:

“If physiologists and medical doctors don’t quite understand gender fluidity, then why do we try to impose this on people who are just trying to figure out how to tie their shoe? It’s not fair. It’s not just.”AMEN

160226_gender-4

The Daily Signal learned that as of the last school board meeting, some students have left the school since the dispute over “My Princess Boy” began. And for the first time in Nova Classical Academy’s 12-year history, applications were down significantly .

In an email to The Daily Signal, Dr. Eric Williams, executive director of Nova Classical Academy, sought to explain the decline.

While it is correct that a handful of prospective parents have indicated that the reason they did not re-apply to Nova for the 2016-17 school year or declined offers of enrollment was due to the gender nonconformity issue at the school, there are multiple reasons that have contributed more substantially to the lower number of applications received at this time.

For the first time in a almost 10 years, Nova did not host an annual School Showcase/Open House at our school this year– an event that typically draws 200+ prospective parents and their children. Also, this year we chose not to host weekly tours throughout the fall and early winter for families of children entering kindergarten through grade eight. These decisions were made almost exclusively on the basis of allocation of staff resources and the long waiting lists the school has year after year.

Although the school eventually replaced “My Princess Boy” with poems portraying a similar message, the three families who spoke with The Daily Signal said they fear there’s no turning back.

“It seems like they’re very influenced by the way the culture is moving,” said the mother whose daughter remains enrolled.

She and her husband said they intend to “stick it out,” but they’re “trying to decide at what point is just too much.”

“The daily influence of this little boy, who very much looks like a girl, all the accessories … they’re really doing it up with him,” she said. “But for now we’re feeling convicted to stay and be a part of the work of making sure that we did everything we could do save this school.”

Since publication, this article has been updated to reflect the number of students who transferred out of Nova Classical Academy because of “nonconformity issues.”

Texas school superintendents rule birth certificate determines gender of student-athletes


waving flagThe Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — School superintendents in Texas have overwhelmingly approved a change that requires public school officials to use a birth certificate to determine a student-athlete’s gender. A referendum ballot submitted to superintendents last month shows they voted 586 to 32 to amend University Interscholastic League rules when it comes to transgender athletes.

The UIL is the state’s governing body for high school sports. Its policy director, Jamey Harrison, told The Dallas Morning News that the change codifies the advice the league has been giving to superintendents.

“When we were asked by a school for guidance, that was the recommendation we gave them,” Harrison said, “although we told them to work through their own process and own legal counsel as well.”

The amendment goes into effect Aug. 1. It does allow other government documents to be used for the purpose of identification if a birth certificate is unavailable.

The Texas Observer first obtained the list of superintendents and their votes.

Transgender advocates condemned the move, saying it will force transgender students to amend their birth certificate, a laborious and costly process, in order to play. Chris Mosier, the founder of TransAthlete.com, told the newspaper that the policy would deny transgender athletes an “equal opportunity to sports.”Picture4

Texas becomes one of seven states that require high school students to provide either a birth certificate, gender-reassignment surgery or documentation of hormone therapy, according to TransAthlete.com. It says other states like California and Florida have more inclusive rules.

“At the high school level, we should be encouraging participation for all students,” Mosier said.Leftist Propagandist

This State Offered Free College Education. Here’s What Happened.


waving flagReported by Norbert Michel / / February 22, 2016

Aside from the subsidy/cost issue, there are many other reasons why this is bad public policy. (Photo: istockphoto)

Norbert Michel studies and writes about housing finance, including the reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as The Heritage Foundation’s research fellow in financial regulations. Read his research.

Several politicians have recently been offering free goodies to voters. One of the most popular of these, oddly enough, is something that several state governments have already tackled: free college tuition.

The details vary by state, but Oregon, Tennessee, Georgia, Michigan, and Louisiana (among others) all use tax dollars to pay for at least some of their residents’ college tuition.

Louisiana provides a great case study for advocates of similar federal policies.

Louisiana provides a great case study for advocates of similar federal policies. Louisiana just so happens to be in the news right now because the governor is threatening to suspend his state’s version of free college tuition for everyone.

Louisiana’s Tuition Program

Louisiana’s plan is called the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students, or, more commonly, TOPS. This extremely popular program uses tax dollars to pay full tuition (and some fees) at any of Louisiana’s public universities. Other than residency requirements, all high school students qualify as long as they have a C average (2.5 GPA) and at least an 18 on the ACT.

So the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students doesn’t cover every student’s tuition, but it ends up covering it for a large chunk of middle-/upper-class families.

How It Started

The program started out in the late 1980s as the brainchild of oil tycoon/philanthropist Patrick Taylor. The program, which wasn’t originally named for him, started out as a tuition assistance plan only for low-income individuals.

In 1997 the state removed the income caps. At that point, all Louisiana students, regardless of financial need, were made eligible for “free” tuition at any Louisiana public college. Once in college, students had to maintain a C average to keep their TOPS awards.

As of 2010, approximately 70 percent of Louisiana’s high school graduates headed to college within one year. That’s nearly 20 percent higher than the rate in 2000.

Who’s Paying for It?

It’s easy to call the program a success because of this increase, but it’s just as easy to point out that the program doesn’t really provide free education. In one way or another, someone pays for it.

In one way or another, someone pays for it.

The eventual implosion of the program was easy to predict back in 1997 for the same reasons that pretty much any similar subsidy is destined to fail. Subsidies don’t really lower the cost of products and services; they only lower the up-front price that some people pay.

(In 1997, this program inspired my very first public critique of a government policy. Back then, I thought it was a terrible idea.)

No Such Thing as Free Tuition

A person receiving “free” tuition may not see it (or even care), but subsides actually raise the total cost of an education. The core problem is that they remove the paying customer—in this case the student—from the equation.

Without the subsidy, the paying customer receives the direct benefit for the service and bears the direct cost. If that person doesn’t think the cost is worth it, they don’t pay.

Louisiana’s program replaces this paying customer with groups of government officials. These officials neither receive the direct benefit nor endure the direct cost of obtaining an education. These groups do, however, benefit a great deal from obtaining more of your tax dollars.

And they rarely bear any direct cost from either increasing your taxes or delivering a substandard education product. (The incumbency rate is fairly high for politicians.)

On a practical level, Louisiana’s program converts tuition payments into a state budget item. In other words, a large chunk of each school’s “tuition” becomes nothing more than revenue sent in by the state bureaucracy.

In Louisiana, four separate higher education systems—each its own bureaucracy—fight over these “tuition” payments. Smaller schools inevitably get the smallest shares, but that’s kind of another story.

A Burden on University Resources

When the influx of students hits—more people going to school when tuition is “free” is pretty much a foregone conclusion—it strains universities’ existing resources. So the transfer of money has the natural tendency to lead to expanded facilities, faculty, and staff.

But these increases call for a permanently higher level of funding, and all of these effects tend to reinforce each other. That is, school officials have a built in reason to ask for larger transfers, and politicians have a built in excuse to raise taxes.

When the state’s coffers are not flush with cash, the schools’ budgets get cut. Thus, universities have every incentive to raise more money from students who are not a part of the Taylor Opportunity Program.

Of course, for any given level of Taylor Opportunity Program students, a higher posted rate of tuition results in a larger transfer from the state. If the program covered full fees and tuition for literally every student, then taxpayers would bear the full cost. But it doesn’t, so non-TOPS students bear some of the cost.

(Pretty much every student ends up paying higher fees directly, too, but that’s almost an aside.)

Non-subsidized markets don’t work this way—prices can actually fall in response to changes in demand and supply. Subsidized systems, on the other hand, are destined to result in higher—not lower—tuition.

Recent numbers support this explanation. The Taylor Opportunity Program has nearly doubled in cost since 2008, and most of that increase has been due to higher tuition.

What I failed to fully appreciate in 1997 was how bad of a deal the Taylor Opportunity Program would end up being for the smaller schools. Then I spent almost a decade teaching at Nicholls State University, a regional state school in Thibodaux, La.

Small Universities Are Hardest Hit

In one sense, the Louisiana program amounted to a cruel trick for these institutions. Smaller schools are the ones least able to sustain the permanently higher costs associated with the new TOPS-generated revenue stream.

When the state budget goes south—and it always does in Louisiana—smaller schools get slammed. (Louisiana State University has more than 25,000 students, so small changes in per-student fees go a long way).

No matter how much we want it to, subsidizing something simply doesn’t make it more cost-effective.

The Taylor Opportunity Program does give certain people a better deal on tuition at one point in time, but then it makes up for it somewhere else.

Ironically, the earlier waves of Taylor Opportunity Program graduates are among those about to get hit with a tax increase. That’s what politicians mean by free.

Ironically, the earlier waves of Taylor Opportunity Program graduates are among those about to get hit with a tax increase. That’s what politicians mean by free.

Aside from the subsidy/cost issue, there are many other reasons why this is bad public policy.

First of all—and I know this sounds crazy—everyone should not go to college. Some people simply aren’t cut out, and many just don’t need to. Yes, people with college degrees tend to earn more than those without, but it does not follow that everyone should go to college.

When the program was started, Louisiana public universities offered students a good value because they were relatively inexpensive. Now that Louisiana taxpayers have spent more than $2 billion on the program, tuition rates are out of reach for many students that don’t qualify for the program.

While the best solution for Louisiana would be to get rid of the program altogether (unlikely since politicians love the program), the best residents can hope for now is an increase in the program’s academic standards and some form of means testing. At least these changes would better direct subsidies to academically prepared students with more financial need.

Detroit Public School Teacher ‘Sick Out‘ Underway While Just 8% of Students Can Read Proficiently


waving flagReported by Lindsey Burke / / January 20, 2016

Lindsey M. Burke researches and writes on federal and state education issues as the Will Skillman fellow in education policy at The Heritage Foundation. Read her research.

Nearly all schools in Detroit were closed Wednesday due to a massive teacher “sick out,” preventing students from attending class. Teachers have complained about over-crowded classrooms, poor school conditions, and dissatisfaction with the idea of charter school growth in Michigan.

The teachers’ sick-out includes a planned march, which will conclude near a venue being visited by President Barack Obama Wednesday. Meanwhile, 46,000 kids are unable to attend school in Detroit.

Among those 46,000, it’s likely that less than 4,000 of them can read proficiently.

According to the U.S. Department of Education, just 8 percent of Detroit eighth-graders can read proficiently. Eight percent. And just seven in 10 students graduate.

But lack of progress is due not to a lack of resources in Detroit public schools, which spend roughly $16,000 per pupil per year. According to the Mackinac Center and a separate analysis by Randan Steinhauser:

– About 75 percent of the annual District budget goes toward paying employees covered by its current collective bargaining agreement for teachers.

– Out of a new $7,450-per-pupil grant the Detroit school district will receive this year, $4,400 will be spent on debt servicing and benefits for teachers who have retired.What did you say 05.jpg

The average Detroit Public Schools (DPS) superintendent makes between $121,091 and $178,871 a year.How Pathitic

– The superintendent can select up to two “professional associations” (unions) to be a member of each year, and the district (taxpayers) will reimburse his membership dues.

– DPS has a debt of over $3.5 billion, which includes unfunded pension liabilities.

Funneling money into a mismanaged school system has not created an environment conducive to improving academic achievement in Detroit.

Serious reforms to the district are necessary. Policymakers in Michigan would do well to enable every Detroit child—and every child in the state—to exercise school choice through the use of education savings accounts (ESAs), accounts that enable families to harness the funds that would have been spent on their children in their assigned pubic school to craft a customized education plan. They can begin by considering how to tackle the barriers to school choice that currently exist in the state.

25 Years Of Democratic Contributions Expose Narrow-Minded US Colleges


waving flagReported by Kathryn Watson, Reporter 12/22/2015

Major American colleges and universities – many birthed in mottos expounding “truth,” “light,” and the pursuit of “knowledge”-  apparently are only interested in hiring professors and administrators who support liberal Democrat candidates and causes with their campaign contributions. The deeply entrenched narrow-mindedness is stunning.

Vastly more of the campaign contributions by faculty and staff members at 58 major public and private universities between 1990 and 2014 went to Democrats than to Republicans at all but six of the schools, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of Federal Election Commission (FEC) data compiled by OpenSecrets.org.

The few schools that didn’t overwhelmingly favor Democrats gave only slightly more to Republicans. The vast majority of universities gave between 2.5 and 20 times more to Democrats than to Republicans, while the most conservative institutions were the most politically balanced.

That lack of partisan diversity, as reflected in campaign donations reported to the FEC, keeps students from being challenged by new ideas, critiquing their own beliefs and logics, and reaching well-reasoned conclusions about public policy issues.

“Students lose out by missing non-left interpretations of society, ethics, and human meaning,” Daniel Klein, a George Mason University economics professor who has studied the lack of ideological diversity in higher education for more than a decade, told The DCNF. “Many get sucked into leftism; many remain aloof. But they don’t get the good stuff. A terrible shame!”

Klein in 2003 surveyed 1,678 academics across six fields — anthropology, economics, history, philosophy, political science and sociology. Democrats outnumbered those who identified as libertarian or Republican by ratios of 30:1 in anthropology and 28:1 in sociology. Klein called economists the “stand-out exception,” as Democrats outnumber Republicans or libertarians by only 3:1.

“In academia, the left own the establishment; they are the establishment,” Klein told The DCNF. “They are not the radicals or rebels, they are The System.”

That bias is only increasing. 

When the University of California, Los Angeles’ Higher Education Research Institute surveyed professors across the country in 1998 to 1999, 47.5 percent identified themselves as left or far left, and more than 35 percent identified themselves as middle of the road. Eleven years later in the 2010-2011 survey, 62.7 percent identified themselves as left or far left, and 25.4 percent identified themselves as middle of the road.

UCLA’s own professors lean left in their political contributions, giving $2.8 million to Democrats over the last 25 years versus $440,000 to Republicans.

Some schools address the optics of such imbalance by designating a conservative scholar or group on campus.

That’s what the University of Colorado Boulder, with the largest proportion of contributions to Democrats in the left-leaning Pac-12 Conference, told The DCNF when confronted with the school’s lack of ideological diversity.

“We have a Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy to be sure that we are addressing conservative viewpoints as well as liberal, and we have recently expanded our Center for Western Civilization to encompass more visiting scholars who can debate all sides of the political spectrum,” CU Boulder spokesperson Ryan Huff said, emphasizing that the school recently hosted conservative speakers and a GOP presidential debate.REALLY

Hadley Heath Manning, a senior policy analyst with the conservative-leaning Independent Women’s Forum and a Colorado resident, applauded Boulder’s efforts, but said designating a conservative scholar points more to the problem than a solution.

“I do find it very bizarre that there is a dedicated position for the one token conservative and I think the lesson that sends is this is sort o a side show,” she told The DCNF. “If you have that position, you are dedicated to being a token or you’re kind of out of step.”

Heath Manning said the lopsidedness on college campuses is really a “disservice” to liberal students, who face little opposition to their beliefs and thus, have little chance to sharpen them.

“The critical in critical thinking often means critiquing your own point of view,” she said.

So, how did college campuses become so ideologically lopsided? Multiple forces are at work, Klein has suggested. Academia may attract more left-of-center minds naturally in the way that mining or agriculture naturally attracts more conservatives, as a Crowdpac analysis of professions by political preference revealed. Academia was the second-most liberal profession they analyzed, right behind the entertainment industry.

People tend to associate with like minds, so department heads tend to hire people like them, Klein said. Once a worldview dominates significantly more than half of an academic department, that cycle perpetuates more rapidly. As leftists dominate a department, conservatives are not only less likely to be hired, but less likely to want to be hired and feel like an outsider at work.

“Yes, academia is now utterly dominated by left-leaners,” Klein told The DNF. “Not lock-step uniformity, perhaps, but, by and large, non-lefts need not apply.”

“Non-left people know the score,” Klein added. “They are discouraged from pursuing an academic career, though of course there are networks in which the few non-left people find each other.”

Matthew Spalding, associate vice president at Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center in Washington, D.C., told The DCNF that the lack of diversity is “bad for all students and the cause of liberal education.” Spalding believes academia began heading on this “downward path” in the 20th century as value-neutral views began to dominate it.

“We saw the anti-establishment Left on campus bloom in the 1960s,” Spalding said. “Now the radicals are the tenured faculty and the college presidents. And as they replace themselves with increasing vengeance, it turns out they are intolerant and closed-minded. It is getting harder to find any true alternative voices on mainstream campuses and this monolithic political giving is more evidence of their illiberalism.”Never Argue Delusional

But finding the imbalance is the easy part. Addressing it is much more difficult. Universities shouldn’t use quotas, Heath Manning said. But informing college-hunting families is a good first step, she said.

“Just to bring this issue to light and give parents and students the information about what they’re going to be exposed to when they go to college,” Heath Manning told TheDCNF.

Klein has also touted awareness as the best start toward a solution, and dedicates much of his research to that end. He has also proposed allowing professors of different political affiliations to assume more responsibility in the hiring process, although he doubts most universities will agree.

Something needs to change on college campuses, or the country may continue to see campus attacks on free speech, like those at the University of Missouri and Yale University, Heath Manning said.

“I think we as a culture at large, we’ve lost a lot when it comes to that art of agreeing to disagree and exchanging different points of view,” Heath Manning said.AMEN

At least one well-known university appears not to care about the fact it has a one-sided faculty and administration.

“The university isn’t going to comment on a non-related work behavior,” UCLA spokesperson Jessica Huff told The DCNF. “… I don’t think anybody thinks about it much at all.”

Parent Rebellion Brewing in Tennessee Over Islam-Centric Educational Standards


waving flagby Michael Patrick Leahy20 Oct 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/10/20/parent-rebellion-brewing-tennessee-islam-centric-educational-standards

A similar grassroots rebellion between 1999 and 2002 prevented the state’s establishment Republican Governor, Don Sundquist, from imposing a state income tax on Tennesseans. In 2014, that prohibition was made permanent in an amendment to the state’s constitution approved overwhelmingly at the ballot box by voters.

The current uprising pits Tennessee parents against Republican Governor Bill Haslam, the Tennessee Department of Education, the large and powerful multinational textbook publisher Pearson Education, the state’s educational bureaucrats, unaccountable local county school directors, and their far too compliant local school boards.

The involvement of Pearson Education is particularly controversial since its parent corporation, London based Pearson PLC, is partially owned by the Libyan Investment Authority. With 3 percent of Pearson’s outstanding stock, the Libyan Investment Authority is one of its largest shareholders.

The Washington Times recently reported there is a financial connection between the Libyan Investment Authority and the Council on American-Islamic Relations:

According to the Financial Times, the Libyan Investment Authority was founded by Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Seif al-Islam; more than five Gaddafi family members own shares. The Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR, a recently designated terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates), Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the Muslim Brotherhood invested in Pearson Education through the Libyan Investment Authority.Islam is NOT

CAIR has inserted itself into the Tennessee seventh grade Social Studies standards political battle, even though barely 1 percent of the state’s population self-identifies as Muslim. The group has publicly criticized the state legislator who has introduced legislation to prohibit the teaching of religious doctrine prior to the tenth grade in Tennessee.

A number of Tennessee parents also claim that CAIR has provided supplementary materials used by some Tennessee school districts to support the new seventh grade standards.

One reason for CAIR’s interest in Tennessee is that it has the highest percentage of Evangelical Christians of any state in its population, according to a recent Pew Research Poll on religion in America. As a result, Tennessee may be the “tip of the spear” in attempts to crush public opposition to Islamization.Christian Persecution

CAIR co-founder and executive director Nihad Awad, “a known Hamas supporter,” has publicly “reject[ed] Israel’s right to exist.”

As Breitbart News reported previously:

Even in the face of the Islamic State’s rampaging terror and slaughter, Awad called the Jewish state the biggest threat to world peace and security. Breitbart News reported he once publicly declared his support of the “Hamas movement.” Hamas, the radical Islamic group, is a United States designated terrorist organization. CAIR was charged as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-financing case in U.S history, the Holy Land Foundation trial.

Before launching CAIR, Awad served as PR director for the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), an organization identified by the U.S. government as an arm of the Palestinian Committee, a Hamas support network created by the Muslim Brotherhood. A 2001 Immigration and Naturalization Service memo documented IAP’s support for Hamas and the “facts strongly suggest” that IAP was a part of Hamas’ propaganda machine, according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).America Never Forget

Parents from across the county and the state will be gathering at Tuesday night’s town hall in Sparta, Tennessee sponsored by the group, White County Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination, “to continue efforts to inform and engage the community about the pro-Islamic textbooks and materials being forced upon teachers and students by the White County School Board.”

In a press release, the group said:

School board members, including Chairman Edd Cantrell and Vice Chairman Gary Sparkman, have ignored parents’ objections to the textbooks and materials and refused to remove them or restrict their use in classrooms. Seventh grade social studies textbooks in White County contain nearly 50 pages devoted to a sugar coated view of Islam and the “Islamic World” while barely mentioning Christianity. The School Board has also violated at least 14 of their own policies and procedures in connection with conducting school board business and may have violated state laws concerning public access to materials used in the classrooms in White County. . . .

“The School Board has adopted the textbooks and materials in a shroud of secrecy and misrepresentation and have attempted to hide what is happening in our classrooms concerning the promotion of Islam and limited mentions of Christianity,” [Chairman] Anthony Wright pointed out. “We plan to expose what is happening and call the community to action since the values promoted by the School Board members in our classrooms do NOT reflect the values of our community nor do they follow the laws of the land.”

Bryan Wright, who recently attended a School Board meeting to object to the materials, explained that “the schools should teach any aspect of religion with a focus on fairness, balance and TRUTH; that is not happening with respect to the Islamic Indoctrination being presented in White County thanks to our own elected officials.” “The fault is not the teachers who are being forced to use these materials; it is the fault of the school board that unanimously approved them and who should be held accountable for that terrible decision,” Bryan Wright noted.

Overton County, Tennessee has adopted a set of supplemental materials to provide a fair and balanced teaching of social studies and religion but the White County School Board has refused to accept any alternative to the textbooks and materials they adopted despite significant and growing parental objections.Why

The Tennessean reported the group “expects hundreds of people” at Tuesday night’s town hall:

The new group, White County Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination, joins others in the state concerned about pro-Islamic bias in middle school social studies classes.

The group claims a seventh grade social studies textbook unfairly represents major world religions. They also claim the White County school board has been unresponsive to their concerns.

“We have no problem with teaching world history. We have no problem with world religion. We want it to be fair and balanced and accurate,” said Anthony Wright, chairman of White County Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination.

Tennessee sixth and seventh grade students learn about the rise, spread and impact of major world religions on societies in social studies classes. Students learn about Islamic civilization in seventh grade.

White County Schools, a small district with one middle school, uses “My World History and Geography: The Middle Ages to the Exploration of the Americas” in seventh grade social studies classes.

“It doesn’t report 9/11, ISIS. It doesn’t talk about any Islamic group,” Wright said, referring to the textbook.

Middle school students learn about the Islamic civilization up to the 1500s, according to state standards.

Wright also claimed the book explained how to convert to Islam, but not to Christianity.

“All it takes is one seventh-grader to go home and recite the five pillars of Islam, then go to a school with a bomb in their backpack and blow up 10 kids,” Wright said.

Muslim converts technically recite the Shahada to profess their new faith. The Shahada is the first pillar of Islam.

“We don’t want that book taught. There’s other books available,” Wright said.

School districts select and approve textbooks from a state-approved list. Other school districts, for example, use “Discovering our Past, A History of the World.”

Superintendent Sandra Crouch said she was advised by legal counsel not to comment.

“Our teachers do not teach religious doctrine at all. We simply teach world history according to the state department of education standards,” said school board chairman Edd Cantrell.

In a letter to the school board sent on Monday by James R. Omer, the Nashville attorney who represents the White County parents group, also demanded that the board make the new textbook and all related materials available for public inspection. Incredibly, the White County School district has refused to make either the new textbook or supporting materials available for public review.Why

The letter, addressed to the seven school members by name—Chairman Edd Cantrell, Vice Chairman Gary Sparkman, Jayson McDonald, Richard McBride, Kenneth Robinson, Janet Webb, and Roy Whited—presented a compelling argument:

Our clients are, by this letter, documenting your numerous violations of White County School Board policies and, if the violations enumerated herein are not remedied promptly, they will seek any and all legal remedies, including writs of mandamus and ouster. They are considering other legal action as well, to include legal accountability for violation of state and federal law.

Our investigation reveals that you have consistently been notified of the above violation and this, when combined with violation of the following sections of pertinent statute, Tenn. Code. Ann. § 49-2-301(b)(1), establishes the intentional lack of transparency which is not only illegal, but ignores the essence of your legal obligations and discharge of your duties.

In the letter, the parents group charges that:

During your August Board Meeting, you and the White County Board established a textbook review committee consisting of various board members and administrators and appointed Mr. [Bryan] Wright as an adviser to that committee. Regrettably, the Board only involved Mr. Wright in one meeting and refused others entry to the committee meeting in violation of Board Policy B-7 and TCA §8-44-102(b). . . .

“White County citizens are extremely angered by the approval of the 7th Grade textbook, “My World History and Geography: The Middle Ages to the Exploration of the Americas” and your actions and inactions have violated not only legislated laws, but the very Constitution of the State of Tennessee. Compare your actions with White County Board Policy A-1, wherein you mention your humble deference to that great document … our Constitution.”

The parents group tells the White County School Board “you have not only violated state, federal and local law, but you have lost touch with the very source of your authority to whom you owe the highest level of service: the Electorate, which you so aptly refer in the attached exhibit. It is easy to become comfortable within the bureaucracy and in a hurry to reach ‘rational’ decision when a more complicated, democratic movement is afoot.”

In addition to “adding policies which address the lack of transparency and website deficiencies,” the group demands the White County School Board pass the following resolutions:

– The White County School Board will select textbooks that promote the basic democratic values of our state and national heritage, our republican form of government, and the principles of federalism. We will oppose the selection of textbooks that contain historical inaccuracies or omissions of world religions which could lead to religious bias.

– White County Schools will not discipline or discourage Teachers, Principals and School Personnel “for reporting inaccuracies or errors or potentially inflammatory material in textbooks or other educational materials to supervisors, elected officials, or parents or guardians; prohibits requiring a teacher or other educator to agree not to report inaccuracies or errors or potentially inflammatory material in textbooks or other educational materials, as a condition of employment” as in accordance with Tennessee Law, Public Chapter 165 enacted on July 1, 2015.

– White County Schools will include on their website; a copy of social studies state standards, a summary of the basic content of the instruction, a statement of a parent’s right to review the materials, and information describing a parent’s opportunity to participate in the review of social studies textbooks and supplemental materials. Parents may also request to remove their child from the instruction without retribution or penalty and the process for doing so will also be found on the White County Schools website and/or made available upon parental request.

– Statewide Assessments, or end of course exams, often drive curriculum decisions. Therefore, Statewide Assessment and end of the course exams should be reviewed by teachers, parents and taxpayers, or school boards prior to administration of exam to confirm students are not being tested on their knowledge of any religion.

“The biggest concern is the textbook is telling things that are untrue and is providing a false example of Islam,” Ed Butler, a member of the White County parents group, told WWTN Radio’s Dan Mandis on Tuesday. “Islam is presented as matter of fact,” in the Pearson textbook, Butler said. “For example, on page 79 of the textbook, it reads ‘Mohammad said he worships the same God as Christians and Jews. Mohammad respects those religions.’ But that’s not how we see it. Allah is not the same God worshipped by Christians and Jews,” Butler added.

“The White County School Board is restricting information flow to parents, and not allowing us to speak at public board meetings,” Butler added.

“Bryan Wright was going to be part of the textbook review process, but he was only allowed in one meeting. Other parents were not allowed in those textbook review meetings.”

“It dumfounds me why they – the White County School Board—would not listen to the citizens of White County and to the right thing,” Butler told WWTN’s Mandis.

muslim-obamaMandis asked Butler what the next step is if the White County School Board continues to ignore your group. “The Citizens of White County would demand their resignations immediately,” Butler responded.

Butler noted that there is virtual unanimity from the White County parents of children in the seventh grade there who are being forced to use the Pearson textbook. “There are about 300 seventh grade students in White County. We have about 300 concerned parents in our group. That’s about every parent of a White County seventh grader,” Butler told WWTN’s Mandis.

The Tennessee parent rebellion is not limited to White County. In addition to nearby Overton County, uprisings are developing in Rutherford , Maury, and Williamson Counties as well.

Last week in Williamson County, the affluent Nashville suburb, school board member Dr. Beth Burgos, one of several Common Core opponents swept into office in 2014, proposed a resolution about the teaching of religion, particularly Islam, pertaining to sixth and seventh grade students.”

“Williamson County parents and taxpayers have expressed concerns that some social studies textbooks and supplemental materials in use in Tennessee classrooms contain a pro-Islamic/anti-Judeo Christian bias,” she wrote in the resolution. “Therefore, we the Williamson County School Board encourage the state to develop social studies standards that reflect Tennessee’s commitment to public education. We know that the standards serve as the basic for statewide assessments, curriculum frameworks and instructional materials, but methods of instructional delivery must remain the responsibility of local educators.”

She requested the following actions: that the state revise and clarify the social study standards; textbooks or supplemental instructional materials in Tennessee classrooms reflect a balanced and equitable perspective; supplemental instructional materials should be unbiased; the textbooks and material should be made available to parents and taxpayers.

She also requested that, “no students shall ever be required as a qualification for graduation or statewide assessment to be tested on their knowledge of any religion.”

But Tim Gaddis, Williamson County assistant superintendent said the textbooks treat all religion fairly and no religion is pushed on any student.” This claim, however, is belied by the Breitbart News report that 10 of 75 learning objectives in the 7th Grade Social Studies standards (13 percent) deal with the tenets and history of Islam, while only 1 of 72 learning objectives in the 6th Grade Social Studies (1 percent) address the history of Christianity.

Not all Williamson County School Board members support Dr. Burgo’s resolution, and its outcome remains in doubt.

As the Williamson Herald reported:

“You can’t go by the number of pages that each religion gets [in the Pearson textbook]. We have problems with getting enough bus drivers or substitute teachers. It’s crazy to fool around with this,” [School Board member Bobby Hullett said.]

Anne McGraw, 4th District, also weighed in on the matter.

“I’ve talked to a lot of people, and it never came in any regard,” McGraw said.
….
The resolution, if approved, will be forwarded to the state legislature. Dr. Mike Looney and Chairman Gary Anderson, 5th District, will review the resolution and decide whether it should go forward. It has also not been reviewed by legal counsel, Anderson said.

Other board members such as McGraw said they would not sign the resolution and cannot support it.culture of deceit and lies

Tennessee has 95 counties and approximately 140 distinct school districts.

Not all 140 districts have adopted and purchased the Pearson textbook, but all are subject to the new Islamic-centric standards. “The Pearson text was only adopted by 30 of the 140 districts [in Tennessee]. McGraw Hill grabbed the rest of the market share,” Pearson Education’s Southern Regional Director, Dominic Chavez, tells Breitbart News.

If Tennessee’s recent past is any indication of how this political controversy will unfold, this grassroots parent rebellion is likely to spread to all 95 of the state’s counties, and to do so very soon.

INCOMING: Here’s my message to the Muslim Students Association canceling American Sniper

american-sniper_612x380_1It is the highest grossing war movie in U.S. history but — as we’ve reported previously — it is in the target sights of Muslim students. Once again, a showing of “American Sniper” has been cancelled, this time at the University of Maryland, College Park.

As reported by Foxnews.com, “The University of Maryland announced it will postpone indefinitely an upcoming screening of “American Sniper” after Muslim students protested – calling the film Islamophobic, racist and nationalistic.

 “American Sniper only perpetuates the spread of Islamophobia and is offensive to many Muslims around the world for good reason,” read a petition launched by the university’s Muslim Students Association. “This movie dehumanizes Muslim individuals, promotes the idea of senseless mass murder, and portrays negative and inaccurate stereotypes.”Picture3

“The critically-acclaimed film about the life of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was supposed to be screened May 6 and 7. It was “postponed” on April 22 by the university’s Student Entertainment Events (SEE). While SEE did not mention the Muslim Students Association’s petition, they referenced a meeting with “concerned student organizations” about the film. “SEE is choosing to explore the proactive measures of working with others during the coming months to possibly create an event where students can engage in constructive and moderated dialogues about the controversial topics proposed in the film,” read a statement from SEE posted on the university’s website. The Muslim Students Association posted a Facebook message praising the university’s capitulation to their demands.”culture of deceit and lies

“Praising the university’s capitulation to their demands” — in other words, the surrender of our freedom of cause of deathspeech and expression. Now, I find it doggone funny that the Muslim Students Association (MSA), an organization affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, is allowed to operate freely on our colleges and universities in the first place. I furthermore find it unconscionable that this group of 250 who signed this petition would influence the decision on a campus of some 28,000.

However, consider this irony: black students were allowed to freely stomp on the U.S. flag at Valdosta State College and an Air Force veteran who sought to claim the flag for proper disposition was physically restrained by campus police, arrested, and ordered never to step on the Valdosta State campus again.

Are we upside down or what?

Regarding the MSA protest, I’m starting to believe something is up with states that begin with the letter “M.” I know this banning of “American Sniper” has occurred at the Universities of Missouri, Michigan, and now Maryland — where next, U-Mass?

But who are these individuals to tell an American university what can be shown on its campus? I wonder if the movie “Twelve Years a Slave” was shown at the University of Maryland? And if these MSA students believe “American Sniper” is offensive to Muslims it means means they are supportive of Islamic terrorism and jihadism.

If they stand for freedom, liberty, and democracy, they should not be offended. As a matter of fact, Kyle’s exploits came primarily in Al Anbar province — Fallujah and Ramadi — is it offensive to these Muslim students that ISIS, the reconstituted al-Qaida in Iraq, is now driving Muslims from their homes in Ramadi? Then again, MSA is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is affiliated with Hamas and supports Islamic terrorism and jihadism, so maybe the gist of all this is that these Muslim students are upset to see the story of a heroic American who fought against their compatriot jihadist brothers.

Maybe they don’t want the truth to be known about the savage barbarism of their associates. And the University of Maryland SEE and leadership is so cowardly that they succumb to these “demands.”

The President of the University and the SEE should have sent back a simple letter with a one-word response, “Nuts.” Now, the question I have, is there a Coach John Harbaugh on the campus of Maryland, someone who will stand up to these stealth jihadists who would seek to advance their intolerance in order to suppress our rights? And let me ask a very basic question — why are they here in America studying in our schools and universities promoting their beliefs which are counter to our Constitutional Republic?

If they don’t like the fllm then doggone, don’t go see it! But, how dare they make a “demand” and worse, Maryland caved.

“We sincerely appreciate your commitment to exercising your freedom of speech to create an inclusive, just and safe campus community,” MSA wrote. Furthermore the Muslims Student Association said “American Sniper” creates a “dangerous climate for Muslim students and severely devalues the community atmosphere.”against America

So what the heck does beheading Christians create? What kind of climate exists in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the hotbed of ISIS recruiting? What type of community atmosphere exists for Christians and Yazidis in Mosul?

“Breyer Hillegas, president of the university’s College Republicans, told Fox News that he was furious about the cancellation. “Universities are always trying to satisfy the political correctness police and worry about who they might offend – rather than standing up for principle and the First Amendment of the Constitution,” Hillegas told me. He said the College Republicans had been behind the effort to convince SEE to show the film. “If the university prevents a movie like that from being show – it promotes intolerance and stifles dialogue and debate – and goes directly against the atmosphere that the University of Maryland is supposed to support,” he said.

What do the University of Maryland Campus Democrats have to say on the matter? Crickets. Their silence is deafening — and telling.

So here is my message to the MSA:

I and many other Americans deployed to Muslim countries to bring a chance for liberty and freedom. We lost our brothers and sisters. Some lost their limbs — all gave some, some gave all. And to have you here in our country “demanding” the story of one of our own not be told is offensive.

Your time is running out, as we will not tolerate the intolerant for much longer. You will be crushed and defeated, because in America we just don’t take crap for too long — regardless of the complicit bond you’ve found with progressive socialists — stretching from the White House to the College and University campuses — Islamic fascism will not prevail in these great United States of America.

Children Forced to Scream Vulgarities in NH Elementary School

Many of the children protested, saying that they did not want to read the swears (such as "F#@K YOU!", "You Gay Whore!", and "You F@#KER!") out loud. But they were told that they had to do it.Ms. Christi Michaud, principal of Hallsville Elementary school ordered it to happen. Children being forced to scream profanities during an anti-bullying exercise held at the school in Manchester, N.H.  angered a set of parents so much that they pulled their children from the school. Meetings are being planned, officials are being called, and a petition is being signed to encourage some consequences. (<~~Sign It!) 315×236.jpg

Many of the children protested, saying that they did not want to read the swears (such as “F#@K YOU!”, “You Gay Whore!”, and “You F@#KER!”) out loud. But they were told that they had to do it.

Parent Keith Katsikas reports in a note on his FB page:

“Many of the children protested, saying that they did not want to read the swears (such as “F#@K YOU!”, “You Gay Whore!”, and “You F@#KER!”) out loud. But they were told that they had to do it. The only option those kids were given was to pick a different paper, but they had to do it. They were not given the option to just sit down and not participate.”Liberalism a mental disorder 2

When does the madness end? When do the schools remember that they are not raising our children? When will they remember that they cause of deathcannot just do anything they want with other peoples children?

According to MyFoxBoston, school officials are meeting with Mr. Katsikas Monday morning.

I could retell the story, but parent Keith Katsikas tells it so well. We will let him..then comment!

According to students, and confirmed by at least one teacher, these are the events that took place in Mr Ryder’s 4th grade classroom on April 15, 2015, at approximately 12:30 pm:

It was right after lunch. The children were settling into the seats, preparing for the rest of the school day activities, when a stranger enters the room. The students have never met or seen this women before, but the teacher welcomed her in. Her name was Laurie Evens, and she was from Webster Guidance. Her purpose was to teach a lesson on bullying. The woman proceeded to setup her display: a life-size paper man that she taped to the wall, a small blue basket, and a handful of paper clippings.

The woman passed out the small pieces of paper to the class and told the young children that they had to write down insults, hurtful things that someone has said to them, and if it contained swears, that’s all right. She then collected the pieces of paper from the students into her blue basket and mixed them up.

“Now, I’m going to pick one of you, and when I pick you, you will have to come take a slip of paper from the basket.” She told the children that they had to read whatever was written on the paper out loud, so the entire class could hear. “Say it like you mean it,” she declared. The children had to yell the vulgarities at the life-size paper man. The woman then instructed the children to rip a piece of the paper man off: like his hand, his finger, an ear, etc… She then proceeded to demonstrate by pulling a piece of paper out of the basket, shouted the phrase at the paper man, and ripped off one of his fingers. She then turned to the class and picked the first child to get up to do the same.

Many of the children protested, saying that they did not want to read the swears (such as “F#@K YOU!”, “You Gay Whore!”, and “You F@#KER!”) out loud. But they were told that they had to do it. The only option those kids were given was to pick a different paper, but they had to do it. They were not given the option to just sit down and not participate.

 After all of the children had yelled vulgarities at the paper man and had ripped the man to pieces (only his head was left stuck to the wall), the woman then told the children that they had to go back up, in the same order that they went to swear at the paper man, and tape the pieces they had ripped off back on and then apologize for what they had said. When the children had finished taping the paper man back together, it looked a mess (as one might expect). It wasn’t even recognizable.

The stranger left the class, leaving the Frankenstein’s monster of a paper man taped to the wall for the children to look at the rest of the day.

The 4th grade teacher, Mr Ryder, was very pleased with the lesson and expressed is pleasure to his young impressionable students before moving on to another lesson.

When does the madness end?

Every day a new story appears about some school that has severely crossed the line. When will these schools learn? They will learn when we start showing up at school board meetings en masse demanding resignations. They will learn when thousands of Americans contact the schools and district offices demanding resignations.

Principal Christi Michaud needs to be fired. As I have said before, NOT for this incident, but for the ineptness that allowed this to happen in the first place. She needs to find a non child related job because she is lacking that little “Common Sense” switch in her head that not only says, this is out of line, but that it will emotionally effect a student and adversely affect the school and the district. I publicly call for her resignation. I ask that you do as well!

This situation has caused grief among families, in the classroom, in the school, in the district, and in the community.

If your child’s school allows ‘Day of Silence’, keep your child at home this Friday


Created On: Friday, April 10, 2015, Last Update: Tuesday, April 14, 2015

dos_walkout

The Day of Silence, which is sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), fast approaches. This year it will take place in most public schools on Friday, April 17. On this day, thousands of public high schools and increasing numbers of middle schools will allow students to remain silent throughout an entire day-even during instructional time-to promote GLSEN’s socio-political goals.Shoving

Parents must actively oppose this hijacking of the classroom for political purposes. Please join the national effort to restore to public education a proper understanding of the role of government-subsidized schools.

You can help de-politicize the learning environment by calling your child out of school if your child’s school allows students to remain silent during instructional time on the Day of Silence.

If students will be permitted to remain silent, parents can express their opposition most effectively by calling their children out of school on the Day of Silence and sending letters of explanation to their administrators, their children’s teachers, and all school board members. One reason this is effective is that most school districts lose money for each student absence.

School administrators err when they allow the classroom to be disrupted and politicized by granting students permission to remain silent throughout an entire day.

Visit www.doswalkout.net for complete information on opposing the Day of Silence.

TAKE ACTION

1. Call your local schools and ask whether they permit students or teachers to remain silent in the classroom on “Day of Silence.” IMPORTANT: Do not ask any administrator, school board member, or teacher if the school sponsors, endorses, or supports DOS. Schools do not technically sponsor the Day of Silence. Technically, it is students, often students in the gay-straight alliance, who sponsor it. Many administrators will tell you that they do not sponsor the DOS when, in fact, they do permit students and sometimes even teachers to remain silent during instructional time. Also ask administrators whether they permit teachers to create lesson plans to accommodate student silence.

2. Find out what date the event is planned for your school. (The national date in 2015 is Friday, April 17, but some schools observe DOS on a different date).

3. Inform the school of your intention to keep your children home on that date and explain why.

Shock video: Cornell U. dean explains how to start Islamic State club on campus (Video)

Move over, chess club, French club, and all your other useless western organizations. Make room for a club that pays homage to the great work being done by … Islamofacists?

As hard as it is to believe, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released an undercover video of a dean at an Ivy League school detailing the steps needed to start a pro-Islamic State/pro-Hamas club on campus with an eye toward raising funds and sending care packages to the terrorist groups.

In O’Keefe’s latest video, Assistant Dean of Students Joseph Scaffido of Cornell University is captured on hidden camera advising reporter posing as a student on how to proceed. In addition, Scaffido provides information on how to bring a member of the IS to Cornell to run a “training camp,” explaining, “It’s just like bringing in a coach, to do a training on a sports team or something.”more evidence

When the Project Veritas journalist suggested that the club would support Hamas as well as ISIS, Scaffido stated:

“the University [Cornell] is not going to look at different groups and say you are not allowed to support that group. Because we don’t believe in them or something like that. I think it’s just the opposite. I think the University wants the entire community to understand what’s going on in all parts of the world.”

This new Project Veritas video shockingly and frighteningly exposes that Cornell, an esteemed and storied Ivy League University, is truly detached from reality. This is particularly egregious due to the fact that Cornell has received over $300 million in federal contracts and grants since 2000 and more than $190 million from New York state taxpayers since 2012.

“I was chilled and saddened by Dean Scaffido’s reaction and his position on the pro-ISIS club,” stated James O’Keefe, President of Project Veritas. “At the very best Scaffido’s attitude towards the proposed club is complacent and irresponsible, at the very worst he genuinely and willingly supports those sympathetic to ISIS freedom fighters, or more aptly stated: terrorists. In either case, Scaffido’s comments have placed Cornell in the hot seat. I think it is fair to say that at the very least Cornell owes the American people an explanation, if not an apology.”

The video stunner below is a must watch.

Teacher gives students a lesson about what freedom really means

Our military veterans have sacrificed more than we can imagine to protect our way of life and our freedom. This isn’t just the big things like keeping us safe from terrorists and invasions from other countries, but the little things that go along with the bigger ones. Like being able to get an education.

Unfortunately, not many of us, especially young people, truly grasp what veterans have done for us, which is what makes the story of what this one teacher did to instruct her students about the true meaning of freedom totally awesome.

University California students remove offensive American flag from ‘inclusive’ space


Reported by Caleb Bonham and Kaitlyn Schallhorn, Campus Reform Reporters

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=6335

  • The Associated Students of University of California, Irvine voted to ban hanging flags in its main lobby.
  • The flag banning legislation passed with six yea votes, four nay, and two abstentions.

The Associated Students of University of California, Irvine (ASUCI) voted Tuesday to remove all flags, including American flags, from an inclusive space on campus because of their offensive nature. The bill, R50-70, was authored by Social Ecology Representative Matthew Guevara, and accuses all flags, especially, the American flag, of being “symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism.”

“[F]lags construct paradigms of conformity and sets [sic] homogenized standards for others to obtain which in this country typically are idolized as freedom, equality, and democracy.”

“[F]lags construct paradigms of conformity and sets [sic] homogenized standards for others to obtain which in this country typically are idolized as freedom, equality, and democracy,” the bill reads.

The legislation argues that flags may be interpreted differently; the American flag, for example, can represent “American exceptionalism and superiority,” as well as oppression.

“[T]he American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism,” the bill continues, arguing that “symbolism has negative and positive aspects that are interpreted differently by individuals.”

The anti-flag hanging bill adds that free speech, such as flags in inclusive spaces, can be interpreted as hate cause of deathspeech.

“[F]reedom of speech, in a space that aims to be as inclusive as possible[,] can be interpreted as hate speech,” the bill reads.

“Let it be resolved that ASUCI make every effort to make the Associated Students main lobby space as inclusive as possible.”

“Let it further be resolved that no flag, of any nation, may be hanged on the walls of the Associate Student main lobby space.”

“Let it be further be resolved that if a decorative item is in the Associate student lobby space and issues arise, the solution will be to remove the item if there is considerable request to do so.”more evidence

The flag banning legislation passed with six yea votes, four nay, and two abstentions.

The legislation resolved that any decoration that a student finds offensive will be removed from the Associate Student main lobby if the request is made.cropped-different-free-speech-ideologies.jpg

ASUCI is the undergraduate governing body of UC-Irvine. According to its website, it’s student-led by those who are elected into their positions.

Campus Reform has contacted ASUCI and the UC system for comment.

University of California student government passes resolution to divest – FROM AMERICA


by vidkJennifer Kabbany – Fix Editor on February 9, 2015

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/21178/

“The government of the United States of America is engaged in drone strikes that have killed over 2,400 people in Pakistan and Yemen, many of them civilians,” the resolution stated. “The government oversees, by far, the highest rate of imprisonment in the world, and racial and ethnic minorities are disproportionately targeted by law enforcement agencies, particularly for drug-related offences. 400,000 undocumenteducal immigrants are held in detention centers every year, and millions have been deported since the current administration took office, and the government is directly supporting and propping up numerous dictatorships around the world with weapons sales and foreign aid.”more evidence

The resolution also called on UC system leaders “to withdraw investments in securities, endowments, mutual funds, and other monetary instruments with holdings” from the governments of Brazil, Egypt, Indonesia, Russia, Turkey, Israel, Sri Lanka and Mexico, as well as the U.S.

“This resolution aims neither to condemn entire countries, peoples, or communities nor to determine political solutions, but is solely aimed at ending our university’s support of governments that directly engage in and enable human rights violations,” it stated.Picture1

more evidence

A separate resolution passed with a 9-1-6 vote Sunday called for divestment from companies that do business with Israel. That vote was described as a “landmark decision” by progressives for being the “first multi-campus student association to vote in favor of divestment.” The decision was preceded by protests from a large contingent of students who vehemently opposed the measure.

“UC student groups staged a vocal protest during the UCSA meeting, chanting, ‘stop the hate, against the only Jewish state,’ and holding signs telling the UCSA to ‘stop dividing the UCs for an unjust cause,’” StandWithUs reported in a news release.i-hate-israel

It is common for universities’ student governments to approve nonbinding resolutions asking their leaders to divest from Israel in what has become known as the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. UC Irvine, UC San Diego, UC Berkeley, UC Riverside, UC Los Angeles have all passed Israel divestment measures, as have many other student associations at colleges across the nation. But it’s rare to see a call to divest from America itself.

“Think about that. If they had their way, the student government of the U. Cal. system would require divestment from U.S. Treasuries and most of the world,” Cornell University law Professor William Jacobson points out on Legal Insurrection, responding to the vote. “The U. Cal. student government has proven a point I’ve made repeatedly in terms of the academic boycott: If you are going to boycott Israel, then you need to apply those standards to the whole world, which will result in boycotting yourselves.”

“I’m not glad that the Israel divestment passed, but at least it passed combined with a resolution which made the anti-Israel students and U. Cal student government look like fools.”

But student groups who helped passed the measures have pledged to take their fight to the UC Regents, the 26-member board which governs the University of California.Hate Israel and America

Student Leader: ‘Hamas & Shariah Law Have Taken Over UC Davis’

“UC Davis Student Senator Proud that Islamist Terrorist Group Represented on Campus”

A resolution calling for the University of California at Davis to divest from “corporations that aid in the Israeli occupation of Palestine and illegal settlements in Palestinian territories, violating both international humanitarian law and international human rights” passed on Thursday evening by a vote of 8-2-2. The resolution, sponsored by campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine, was presented before the student senate and specifically targeted companies Caterpillar Inc., G4S PLC, Veolia Environment and Raytheon.

The pro-Israel community on campus staged a walk-out from the divestment hearing, highlighting the fact that the anti-Semitic resolution was “toxic” and “damaged lives.” However the actual divestment vote was overshadowed by a member of the UC Davis student senate, Azka Fayyaz,  captioning a photo on Facebook that “Hamas & Sharia law have taken over UC Davis. Brb crying over the resilience.”

Hamas is an internationally recognized terrorist organization with the goal of murdering Jews worldwide. The photo features students in favor of divestment gathering around multiple Palestinian flags.Wake up America

The UC Davis student paper, The Aggie, noted that Azka Fayyaz was one of the eight senators to vote in favor of the resolution.

“The student senator’s statement that Hamas and sharia law is taking over UC Davis is alarming,” a Hillel International spokesperson told TruthRevolt. “BDS supporters have aligned themselves with a terrorist entity and an ideology that would impose strict religious-based restrictions on everyone. If this is what BDS is about, it’s even worse than anyone thought. We hope that students of all faiths see this evidence that this is a hate-filled movement.”

In her bid to become a student senator, Fayyaz asserted that she aimed to implement, “a holistic campus calendar to creating a more robust Club Finance Council, and actively working with administration for an expansion of quiet spaces for study, reflection and prayer.” On a separate occasion Fayyaz helped display a poster likening Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Hitler.Islam is NOT

High school holds ‘hijab day’ for students


 

Posted By Bob Unruh On 01/29/2015

Article printed from WND: http://www.wnd.com

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.wnd.com/2015/01/high-school-holds-hijab-day-for-students/

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges showed up for a meeting with Somali Muslims in a hijab in April of this year.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges showed up for a meeting with Somali Muslims in a hijab.

A Sacramento, California, high school scheduled a “hijab day” celebrating Islamic law in which Muslims helped school girls don the concealing headscarves. It was at Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep High School, also known as NP3, where officials posted a notice that said: “January 28, 2015. The hijab is a headcovering worn by Muslim women as a symbol of modesty and their devotion to God. GIRLS! Come to the library Wednesday morning and MSA [Muslim Student Association] members will assist you in putting your hijab on. You can bring ANY type of rectangular (or square) scarf that is bought at any store. (If you do not have any scarves, they will be provided for you to borrow for the day.)”

At Jihad Watch, Islam expert Robert Spencer said he had written to Principal Tom Rutten. He pointed out that FBI statistics show that “hate crimes against Muslims, which are never justified, are actually quite uncommon, with hate crimes against Jews being over four times more common.’

“Yet I would venture to guess that there has been no event at NP3 High to call attention to the challenges that Jews face, and that none is in the works.”

Spencer said he understood that NP3 Hijab Day was a student-run event.Picture2

“Would a Jewish or pro-Israel student be allowed to stage a similar day calling attention to anti-Semitism? If this included the rise in Islamic anti-Semitism in Europe and elsewhere, would this be allowed? Would you allow a Yarmulke Day at NP3 High?”

Spencer was responding to a statement sent by the principal to a concerned citizen.

Rutten’s note, apparently forwarded from a student organizer, said: “I wanted to let my classmates and teachers know about the challenges that young Muslim women face when they put on a headscarf. It is unfortunate that a small effort to promote mutual understanding would provoke such a hate-filled and irrational response.”Really with logo

The note continued: “Hijab Day was part of my senior project, meant to bring awareness to my campus about the misconceptions surrounding Islam, particularly those surrounding the headscarf. I invited a speaker to talk to faculty about addressing Islamophobia in the classroom and the challenges in the Muslim world, and they appreciated the open and frank discussion.”

The note then describes Spencer as a “notorious Islamophobe,” citing as a source the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center, which was named in a federal court case as the source of information for a confessed domestic terrorist who attacked a Christian organization in Washington several years ago, intending to kill as many Christians as he could.com01

The “citizen’s note” to the principal, which prompted the student’s diatribe, called the promotion of Islamic law, or Shariah, “outrageous.”

“It’s outrageous primarily because it brought religion into a public school in a way that directly conflicts with the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, which prohibits school-sponsored prayer and religious indoctrination. Encouraging girls and women to wear hijabs for ‘modesty’ is clearly an example of religious indoctrination. Can you imagine the public outrage if a Jewish student requested ‘Yarmulke Day’ and all men and boys at the school were urged to wear a head covering of the type that Jewish men and boys wear?”

The citizen also noted that the Muslim Students Association “is considered by many national security experts to be tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.” “In other words, tied to terrorism.”

A report by BizPacReview raised the question:Does separation of church and state only apply to some religions?” The school did not respond to WND’s request for comment.

At the D.C. Clothesline blog, Islam expert and anti-Shariah campaigner Pamela Geller said: “When I was young, I remember the feminists and the leftists were all ‘burning bras’ during the left’s war on America. It was symbolic of the fight for women’s rights. So instead of a ‘hijab day’ at a California public school, why don’t they ‘burn burkas’ to stand in solidarity with women forced to wear the Islamic garb of shame and oppression?”

She also listed the telephone contact for the principal and the email for the school board.

Texas School District to Host Islamist Conference to Fight Islamophobes and Promote Islam


Posted By / 7 January 2015

While Americans are lured into a complacent sleep by the constant drum beat of social justice, minority rights, inequality, the need for fairness and tolerance and diversity and to be non-judgmental of others or their views, forces are at work to exploit that sentiment.

While the world is filled with the news of Islamic terror other Islamists are at work to silence the critics by holding informational conferences and conducting public outreach.

One such case is happening in Texas at the Curtis Culwell Center (Garland Independent School District property) which is hosting an Islamic conference titled “Stand with the Prophet in Honor and Respect” that proclaims the need to be “Ready to defeat Islamophobia?” according to the Sound Vision Foundation, “a not for profit organization serving Muslims.”   The event is scheduled for Saturday, January 17, at 5:00 pm.com02

The Sound Vision Foundation’s web site states in part: Ready to defeat Islamophobia? This is not an event. It is the beginning of a movement. A movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message.
 
This benefit will raise funds to establish a Strategic Communication Center for the Muslim community, which will develop effective responses to anti-Islamic attacks, as well as to train young Muslims in media.

And two of the speakers slated for this event are: Imam Siraj Wahhaj and Abdul Malik Mujahid.  So just who are these individuals?

Imam Siraj Wahhaj (according to the Clarion Project web site)

Wahhaj was listed as an “unindicted person who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Wahhaj supports the implementation of Sharia (Islamic law) governance, including its criminal punishments. “Islam is better than democracy.  Allah will cause his deen [Islam as a complete way of life], Islam to prevail over every kind of system, and you know what?  It will happen,” he has preached.more evidence

In September 2013, the NYPD justified its surveillance of Masjid at-Taqwa by pointing to evidence of terrorist and criminal activity there. The assistant imam is suspected of using the mosque to raise money for terrorist groups.

Wahhaj has been a Vice President of the Islamic Society of North America since 1997 and was a member of the North American Islamic Trust’s Board of Advisors from 1989 to 1993.

Abdul Malik Mujahid (according to the web site CreepingSharia) said “Qital [killing] is an essential element of Islam. And sometimes you don’t like it. Qital is ordained upon you, though it is hateful to you, but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you….And one example is, now we have 60 or so Muslim countries, and not a single one of them wants to go for Qital and Jihad for Bosnia. Qital is ordained upon you though it is hateful to you.”Obama Muslim collection

It is absolutely disappointing that a Garland Independent School District would host an event that is aimed at fighting against honest, God fearing Americans who have legitimate concerns about the Islamist movement in America and around the world.Christian Persecution

Would Garland host a Nazi Conference? A KKK conference? An Aryan Nation or skinhead conference? An anti-Semitic conference? Then why this one?

Contact the Curtis Culwell Center in Texas and the Garland Independent School District and let them know you think this is an outrage and should be cancelled.

It’s clear Islamists never rest (they lie in wait) and never should non-Muslim Americans rest in the face of such propaganda!  Jefferson said to be ever vigilant and educated to the threats of freedom.  These groups, like the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) are attempting to misinform the public about Islam and teach others how to brand anything anti-Islam as Islamophobia.

noislamWhen one group of Americans is unable to criticize that with which they passionately disagree they are no longer being treated as equals. They don’t see it this way, why, because Islam doesn’t see non-Muslim as equals. Some might say I know a Muslim, I work with a Muslim, I have a Muslim friend or a Muslim neighbor, they treat me well. They just might, good for them, however Islam, their religion, does not. Muhammad didn’t treat his neighbors well – he killed them. And a conference that calls for honoring and respecting Muhammad is an affront to everything American.

  • The prophet of Islam was a pedophile,
  • a rapist,
  • a polygamist,
  • a racist,
  • a tyrant and
  • a murderer.

I don’t find that worth defending – calling it honorable or respectable is beyond an outrage.

Tolerating evil is evil itself. Islamic law, Sharia, does not recognize let alone respect Democracy, liberty or freedom of speech, so if you do, if you believe in God-given inalienable rights — you had better start using them while you still have them.

Voltaire said, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” When we cannot be critical of an ideology that has been a murdering totalitarian force for 1,400 years something has gone wrong with logic, facts and reason. No matter how many “good” Muslims we might know — Islam is anything but peaceful, it is totalitarian, it is deadly to non-Muslims. Just look around you!2

Sharia Law reveals an impassible gulf between Islamic and Western thought and American law. In America, the government derives it’s just powers from the governed and acknowledges the inalienable rights of every individual, of which justice and protection from violence is foremost. Islam’s legal system is radically different: the father is “governor” or “administrator” of the family. That is, he is a sovereign within his domestic realm, with the right to employ violence to control his wife, children, and others. That alone makes Sharia Law incompatible with the Western concept of human rights.

U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights:  

Article 5 – No person shall . . . be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.

Most, if not all states have laws that prohibit Domestic Abuse, Battery, Terror Threats, etc. that include fines, community service, and up to three years in prison.

Islamic Sharia Law (*Reliance of the Traveller): 

  1. Obligation to Command the Right and Forbid the WrongMuslims are obligated to discipline others. If censuring with harsh words, breaking things, or intimidation does not work, Muslims are obligated “to directly hit or kick the person, or use similar measures that do not involve weapons.”  (Section q5.8)
  2. Wife beating“[A husband] may hit her, but not in a way that injures her, meaning he may not break bones, wound her, or cause blood to flow.”  (Section m10.12)
  3. Honor killing“The following are not subject to retaliation:  a father or mother for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (Section o1.2(4))
  4. Killing an apostate “There is no indemnity for killing an apostate.  Or any expiation, since it is killing someone who deserves to die.” (Section o8.4)
  5. Obligation to engage in Jihad“Jihad is a communal obligation upon Muslims each year.” (Section o9.1)  The objective of jihad is:  “The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax.” (Section o9.8)

Oldest black college on verge of closing – will LeBron James wear a t-shirt about that?


 

 

Written by Allen West on December 19, 2014

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://allenbwest.com/2014/12/oldest-black-college-verge-closing-will-lebron-james-wear-t-shirt/

Photo: Robert Deutcsch, USA Today SportsFor some of you this story will mean nothing — but to me it means a lot. I believe in honoring history, traditions and legacies. And I do believe in and support the Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in the United States.

My mother graduated from Ft. Valley State College in Georgia. My Aunt Brendalyn graduated from Morris Brown College in Atlanta. My Uncle Samuel Jerome graduated from Tennessee State University – I’ll never forget when Ed “Too Tall” Jones came to visit. My niece Chiquetta graduated from Florida A&M University.

As for me, well, I actually had a scholarship to Southern University in Louisiana but that sage and wise ol’ man, my dad, Buck West, decided that if I was to be an officer in the U.S. Army — I needed to attend school in an environment where I was in the minority so I would never be intimidated. And at the time, the University of Tennessee had one of the nation’s best Army ROTC programs – like I said, he was a wise man.

Yes, I have donated to the United Negro College Fund and will continue to do so — after all, a mind is a terrible thing to waste. And I believe it’s my responsibility to give back to my black community and create better opportunities for the next generation.

So this story from Reuters disturbs me greatly, “The nation’s oldest black college, Cheyney University, one of Pennsylvania’s 14 state-run universities, is on the verge of a financial meltdown that threatens its ability to continue operating, a state official said on Wednesday. Cheyney’s student body has shrunk by two-thirds, to about 1,000, since its 1983 peak, and its four-year graduation rate is just 9 percent.”

“A quarter of students never receive a degree, and student loan defaults are high. “Cheyney is in dire, dire, dire straits,” the state’s auditor general, Eugene DePasquale, said. The university has had a deficit for four of the last five years, growing to a cumulative $12.3 million shortfall as of June 30, 2013.”

“Cheyney’s fiscal problems – students who are unable to repay debt and increasing pension costs – were exacerbated by cutbacks in state higher education funding.”

What is disturbing to me is I don’t hear about Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson addressing this issue. There are no marches and grandstanding speeches addressing this travesty. Instead of Samuel L. Jackson making videos featuring an incendiary song, why not commit some of his millions to enable Cheyney University to keep its doors open?Liberalism a mental disorder

Heck, instead of these black pro football players walking around with hands up and LeBron James and others wearing t-shirts quoting the words of a man with some 34 priors who was resisting arrest, why don’t they donate some of their millions and sponsor a scholarship for a deserving inner city child to get a quality education?AMEN

Where are the white liberal progressives who talk the talk about black social injustice? Of course those are the same voices who speak out against school vouchers, school choice, charter schools, and home schooling — basically any means by which black children can attain a better education instead of being relegated to a failing public school system, as promoted by the progressives best friends — the teachers unions.Liberalism a mental disorder

As Reuters reports, “Cheyney, located in the Philadelphia suburb of the same name, was founded in 1837 after Quaker philanthropist Richard Humphreys bequeathed part of his estate to build a school to educate descendents of the African race, according to the university’s website. Its alumni include journalist Ed Bradley, state and U.S. elected officials, several National Football League players, a U.S. ambassador to South Africa, and Robert Bogle, chief executive of The Philadelphia Tribune. Cheyney “has done many good things since 1837,” interim university president Frank Pogue said in a statement. “We are doing many good things today, and we will do many good things in the coming years.”

I was just in Philadelphia this past week, and if there’s one thing the greater Philly-Camden NJ-Wilmington Delaware area needs, it’s a premier HBCU.

The not so well known truth is that many of the HBCUs were began by white abolitionists — yep, those mean pesky Republicans, you know, that party that was begun for one purpose, the eradication of slavery. We reported here on a scholarship provided by the infamous and oft-demonized Koch Brothers to the UNCF — and guess what happened? The UNCF was attacked by unions for accepting the monetary gift from the Koch Brothers Foundation — and who exactly are the mean uncaring folks?com05

Nothing would please me more than to have a group of conservatives take up the cause of Cheyney University, make it financially viable and develop a strategic program that offers scholarships to deserving kids in the inner city along the I-95 northern corridor. I’d love to see someone do something absolutely amazing and recreate Cheyney University as the first black free market constitutional conservative university.

And why couldn’t that happen at the nation’s oldest black college? I’d love to see Cheyney University grow to rival Hillsdale College or Northwood University, both in Michigan.

Let’s find a way to create a black university that focuses on developing and creating the next generation of black businessmen and women, economists, and marketing executives — truly a premier institution. A place of higher learning where black students are taught based on the three principles of Booker T. Washington — education, entrepreneurship, and self-reliance. There’s only one way we break the chains of the welfare nanny-state — an education based on constitutional conservative values.

Heck, I’d be honored one day to go there and be the Head of a Department of Political Science and Public Policy. And you can bet my former business professor wife Angela would love to head up a College of Business. Yep, here’s a great challenge conservatives can champion — progressive socialists of the left certainly won’t because they’re too busy out protesting, marching and attacking the police.Liberalism a mental disorder

This is not a matter of self-imposed segregation — this is about taking a legacy, a tradition, and remaking it into something better in the 21st century. And just so you know, there are white students who attend HBCUs. It’s not about segregation, it’s about prioritization.

So let’s see if someone of vital means will find a way to make this idea that could change America come to fruition. And you know I must be serious if I’d offer myself and my wife to be on the faculty there, because I don’t like the cold!

Regardless, I hope someone from Cheyney University gets contact with me. Yep, it’s just that important, and it’s what Buck and Snooks would expect of their son.

 

Wait Until You See the Anti-American, Hate-Filled ‘New Pledge’ this Professor Made his Students Recite


December 8, 2014 By

Pledge-2
Dr. Charles Angeletti, a tenured professor at Metropolitan State University in Denver, claims to love America. But, if what he had his students do is displaying love for our great republic, then I’d be a little nervous to see how he demonstrates hatred or loathing.
 Propaganda Alert BS Alert
A professor at the university since 1967, Dr. Angeletti has had his students recite this America bashing pledge for the past 20 years. But, for some reason, it is just coming to light thanks to freshman Meteorology major Steven Farr. This ‘new pledge’ reads as follows:

“I pledge allegiance to and wrap myself in the flag of the United States Against Anything Un-American and to the Republicans for which it stands, two nations, under Jesus, rich against poor, with curtailed liberty and justice for all except blacks, homosexuals, women who want abortions, Communists, welfare queens, treehuggers, feminazis, illegal immigrants, children of illegal immigrants, and you if you don’t watch your step.”Liberalism a mental disorder

Farr, outraged, shared a copy of the handout of this ‘new pledge’ with Campus Reform  . In an interview with them, Farr said, “This was an attempt to propagandize an entire classroom of young adults.” He also conveyed that no alternative political prospective beyond far left progressivism espoused by Angeletti who is an admitted atheist and socialist.

Campus Reform  reached out to the professor to give him a chance to explain himself. During the interview, he doubled down on this ‘new pledge.’ He retorted, “We’re very racist, we’re very repressive, we’re very Christian oriented, we don’t tolerate other kinds of thinking in this country. I could go on and on—and do in my classes for hours about things that we need to do to make this a better country.”

Nine States Consider Making High Schoolers Pass Citizenship Tests


December 4, 2014 By

ZAmerica
For decades, the federal Department of Education has placed a low priority on the importance of teaching U.S. history and civics. The cooperation with far-left teachers unions, the federalized education system in the U.S. has restricted the teaching of topics that will alert future generations to the dangers of collectivist ideologies and restrictive governmentAMEN
 
After all, a young adult who does not understand the Constitution and it’s foundation in enlightenment thinking- that our rights are derived from God and guaranteed by government- is likely to shrug-off such usurpations and totalitarian abuses like executive amnesty edicts, unconstitutional gun laws and radicalized bureaucracies like Eric Holder’s so-called Department of Justice.
Don’t take my word for it; even the architect of Obamacare has proudly noted that the Obama Administration relied on an easily-duped, “stupid” American populace to enact the socialized medicine monstrosity.group imperial obama

Now, a nonprofit education group is calling for American high-schoolers to be required to pass the same citizenship test given to immigrants…AMEN

You know, when waiting in line and going through the legal immigration process mattered…

The Civics Education Initiative, an Arizona-based non-profit group, is pushing for legislation in Arizona, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico,  North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah that would require all high school students to pass the same test that immigrants applying for U.S. citizenship must pass. The test includes questions about U.S. history and government and the Constitution. 

There’s reason to believe too many Americans aren’t getting enough of a civics education these days. 

According to the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, just one-third of Americans can name all three branches of the federal government. More alarming is the fact that another third can’t name even a single branch. 

Only 13 percent of Americans knew that the Constitution was signed in 1787. Only 15 percent were able to correctly identify John Roberts as the chief justice of the Supreme Court. But fear not, people aren’t completely ignorant:  Nearly twice as many were able to identify Randy Jackson as an American Idol judge. 

Civics education has been placed largely on the backburner in American public schools as the focus of curriculum has shifted more toward science, technology, engineering and math to prepare students for the technology-based economy. STEM education is no doubt important: after, all Americans need to be properly trained to compete in the global economy. But by neglecting civics education, we undermine citizens’ sense of what it means to be an American and weaken the foundations of our society. AMEN

Let’s be fair; while we still retain, in theory, three distinctly separate branches of government, one can forgive the confusion of graduating students. After all, when a president operates as a legislator and an executive, are there, in fact, separate branches in place?

Still, the point remains that if America is going to come back from the precipice of fiscal and cultural ruin, an emphasis on the foundational principles and an understanding of what made America so great is needed in public schools. 

AMEN

School district distributes lesson plan that compares Ferguson protests with Boston Tea Party


By Howard Portnoy on December 4, 2014

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://libertyunyielding.com/2014/12/04/school-district-distributes-lesson-plan-compares-ferguson-protests-boston-tea-party/#xlqYWMgtEUZzkAfu.99

Ferguson protestI was under the impression that the Boston Tea Party was no longer taught in the nation’s schools because it is insulting to American Indians. Obviously I was mistaken:

After protesters in Ferguson, Missouri looted shops, burned police cars, and harassed reporters in the wake of a grand jury decision they disagreed with, the Madison Metropolitan School District in Madison, Wisconsin circulated a guide to teachers offering tips about how to talk about Ferguson with students.

Calling the Ferguson riots “a teachable moment for our students,” the Madison teacher’s guide encourages educators to use the resources and articles linked in the document, “to help frame the issues in Ferguson in a historical perspective.”

One of the resources linked in the document is a blog post by a Michigan teacher from August that compares the Ferguson riots and looting to the Boston Tea Party. Another resource linked was an article from The Atlantic titled “Reparations for Ferguson” that compared police officers to predators. [Emphasis added]

OK, let’s back up here and take a closer look at this comparison. The Boston Tea Party was a carefully planned and organized protest by the Sons of Liberty against a scheme by the British Crown to impose unfair taxes on the colonists. The Ferguson protests were a spontaneous, if predictable, mob reaction to a shooting death, egged on by “community organizers,” that resulted in the wholesale destruction of property in the predominantly black St. Louis suburb. About the only thing the two events have in common is that both can fairly be described as protests.Pro Race Baitersracismjacksonsharptonobamaracebaiterssettingamericaback

While we’re on the subject of education, this protester in New York City could certainly stand to do some work in remedial spelling:

Williamson County, TN Schools Ban Christianity and TEACH Islam (video proof)


Posted by Victoria Jackson on November 5, 2014

Read more at http://victoriajackson.com/12040/williamson-county-tn-middle-schools-ban-christianity-teach-islam-video-proofcomment 04

Imperial Islamic President ObamaJulie West, founder of Parents for Truth in Education, finds some scary stuff on the Williamson County, TN Schools website. She goes to the 7th grade Social Studies page and points out a few shocking things, beginning with the fact that we have been told “Common Core is only Language Arts (English) and Math.” First red flag. Here are other red flags that prove Common Core has an Islamic agenda prepared for the minds of our next American generation.

  1. Why is CCSS, Common Core State Standards on the Social Studies page? Haslam/Looney said CCSS is only Math and Language Arts.

  2. Why is a “religion” being taught in school? Christianity is banned, including the word Christmas, and prayer, etc. So why Islam? And, why only Islam?

  3. According to the WCS website, more time is being spent on teaching Islam than on teaching the Roman Empire and its effect on American Law and Government, architecture, etc.

  4. Under the heading ‘Islamic World Standards. Africa,’ the CC Curriculum teaches this; ‘Pillars of Islam.’ ‘Discover Islam.’ “Explore. Discover. Be Convinced.” Then, there’s “My Journey to Islam,” someone’s conversion story.

Is there a conversion to Christianity story in the CCSS curriculum? No. A Conversion to Judaism story? No.

  1. Common Core Curriculum links to a Muslim gear page that includes T shirts bearing the Aqida, the Muslim creed.

  2. Under ‘Other Religions,’ there’s a link entitled, “Islam and Other Religions,” not “Christianity and Other Religions.”

  3. Under the Heading, “Prophets and Messengers,” Jesus and Mohammed are listed.

  4. Under same heading it says; “Was Jesus sent to be crucified?”cp 11

Public schools are teaching this.

Common Core Curriculum says, “It is very clear from the above verse Matthew 26:39 that Jesus had no intention of dying.”

Julie West responds, “That is a pretty overt attack on the foundational belief of most of the students in Williamson County schools, again on a public school website.”

  1. Next paragraph is entitled, “The Post Crucifixion Prophesied Events Never Happened.” Wow.Christian Persecution

Julie West points out, “It doesn’t say, “Muslims believe they didn’t happen.” It doesn’t say, “Many people question this account,” or “it’s a belief of Christians.” It categorically states, on a public school website, apparently enforcing a Common Core Standard (all tests to get into college will be held to this standard), that the post crucifixion prophesied events never took place. Again, this is the faith of the majority of residents of this county, and the district web site is instructing students that that information is not true.”

Julie West continues, “So once again I ask Commissioner Huffman, Governor Haslam, Director of Schools Mike Looney, and really anyone else, why is this okay, that this is what our children are being exposed to, not just for one day or two, but according to the scope and sequence, for the vast majority of at least the first nine weeks? I’ve got a feeling it goes on. So thank you, and by the way, I really am waiting for an answer.”

So are we Julie. Thank you for your research. I am very angry at how our elected and appointed leaders are lying to us. They work for us, and they need to be accountable.

This is obvious indoctrination, brainwashing, propaganda. Civilization Jihad according to experts, link here and here, is Islamic Jihad infiltrating a society without violence by taking over the education system, the courts, the churches, the government, etc.

Islamic Indoctrination In Schools HEATING UP: Kids Reciting “Shahada”!


MId Term drawing

Commentary By Adina Kutnicki — October 30, 2014

Read more at http://joeforamerica.com/2014/10/islamic-indoctrination-u-s-public-schools-heating-students-reciting-shahada/

ANYONE who understands the inner workings of Islamic submission via jihad, also realizes that capturing and co-opting the kiddies is their number one priority. Ditto for leftists and cultural Marxists.

THAT being said, it follows that America’s public schools are in their cross hairs!  Keep reading, but be prepared to take action, otherwise this jihadi train will take over your children’s hearts, minds and religious practices – like it or not!

islam
Wichita, Kansas public school hall display!

IT has never been the case that this site has “cried wolf”, relative to Islam or the Marxist left. If anything, readers should know that this investigative journalist has evinced remarkable “restraint”, considering the explosive info which comes this way, some of which is “too hot” to reveal. Believe it.

BUT one needn’t immerse themselves in the jihadi muck to know this: it is against the law to teach/indoctrinate religion within the public school system, and the Establishment Clause, housed within the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, is immutable. Yes, the oft-mentioned “separation of Church and State”. How dare the PC thought police – in the (mis)education department – allow this blatant violation, one which is counter to American law and ethos!

MORE specifically, the teaching of the “Shahada” should be viewed as the last straw…the “red line”, or more aptly termed, the “green line”…at least for ANY parent who is not looking for their kiddie to submit/succumb/prostrate to Allah! Ya think?

The Shahada “the testimony”; also “the two testimonials” is an Islamic creed declaring belief in the oneness of God and the acceptance of Muhammad as God’s prophet. The declaration, in its shortest form, reads:

lā ʾilāha ʾillā-llāh, muhammadun rasūlu-llāh

There is no god but God, Muhammad is the messenger of God

MIND you, if this INDOCTRINATION is not enough to get parents to rise up and scream, “no more, stop messing with our kiddies”, nothing else will!New WhatDidYouSay LogoPicture4

In Revere, Massachusetts the public school district there is not only requiring students to learn about Islam but is teaching these children the Shahada or the Islamic conversion prayer. As you can see in the news reports below, one dad is rightly upset but there are also some liberals who have no problem with it (after all, it is Boston). What many of these parents do not understand is that in Islam, the simple recitation of this prayer means a conversion to Islam.

Imperial Islamic President ObamaSome of the parents may scoff at such a notion but make no mistake; there are Muslims who certainly do not. In the same way that the Ground Zero mosque was intended to be about conquest, so too is forcing non-Muslim children to recite the Shahada. The local news reports do not pick up on this very significant element of the story.

As Shoebat.com reported recently, the Boston Police Department just announced the promotion of its first Muslim to Captain. While that may seem a separate issue, consider what new Captain Haseeb Hosein had to say about his plans:

As Boston police Captain Haseeb Hosein, a former science teacher and a firm believer in the power of reading, assumes leadership in Mattapan as the department’s first Muslim captain, he plans to have his officers walking not only the streets, but school hallways.

“I want my guys to go into the schools and spend 30 minutes and read” with a child, said Hosein, 52, who received his captain’s shield Wednesday in a ceremony at police headquarters. “I hate that police officers are always the bad guy. We should be an asset.”

As a Muslim, Hosein knows the Shahada and he knows that reciting it means conversion. We know that he wants his officers to “read” with children. Revere, which is less than 15 miles from Mattapan, is already teaching children Islam’s conversion prayer.

Can we not conclude that Hosein would have no problem with his officers helping children recite the Shahada?

Millions of students in public schools don’t understand fractions or pronouns at even a basic level but students in the oceanfront Boston suburb of Revere, Mass. are taking the time to learn all about Islam — in the most embarrassingly shallow and cheerleading way imaginable.

Part of the textbook prints the Muslim Call to Prayer,according to Boston NBC affiliate WHDH. “I bear B.S. Meterwitness that there is no God but Allah,” it says. The textbook portion also reverently celebrates Muhammad’s life. “Muhammad never expected to change the world,” the admiring, rah-rah textbook reads. “Muhammad later tended sheep on the dry hills like many young Arabians,” the text explains. “Later he became a successful merchant and married a wealthy widow. However, he felt as though something was missing in his life, so he went on a retreat.” The founder of Islam was “upset about the cruelty of his people,” the text also optimistically explains. They “killed baby girls.” They “treated their slaves unkindly.” And “Muhammad had a strong sense of right and wrong.”

One local parent, Anthony Giannino, is upset about the textbook’s treatment of the Muslim religion. IT gets worse…and this is just a sampling of the indoctrination through a so-called “cultural” textbook:

textbook-vi

THAT being said, children, the next generation, are the MAIN targets of Islamic leaders and their collaborators on the left. This is a fact. Not only that, but when jihad comes into full bloom on the streets of America – sooner than most realize – it is also a fact that they will head for America’s jugular: it’s kiddies!

David Gaubatz: As we all know children are the future of the world. Sadly most Muslim children are being taught hate and violence from an early age. Most people think Muslim children are only being taught this ideology in Palestine and throughout the Middle East. The vast majority of mosques in America teach hate and violence. There are several references in the Quran that inform Muslims to never take Christians and Jews as protectors and friends. The Sunni manual Tafsir Ibn Kathir is an excellent reference to what children are being taught in Islamic schools.

When I was in Iraq I had the opportunity to interview several captured Al Qaeda members. I asked them what type of future attacks America would endure. The answer over and over was that the hearts of Americans would be attacked. They explained that this meant the American children would be attacked because they are the hearts of the American people. These terrorists said the attacks would not necessarily be physical attacks, but rather a slow indoctrination in U.S. public schools and universities. The indoctrinating would include the Islamic ideology is peaceful and even as non-Muslims they support Islam and the Muslim people…..

PATRIOTS, parents and concerned citizens, do you believe the above penetration came out of nowhere and just magically appeared? Hope not.

SO what else have Islamic “stealth” jihadists accomplished relative to America’s school children? Much more than you think.

Accomplishment One:

IF anyone believes that the likes of Obama Inc. is NOT totally involved in said infiltration and penetration – through their Brotherhood links within the administration and outside its confines too – well, go back to sleep. It is just easier for some to close their eyes and muffle their ears. Yet for the rest….

Before we get to the recent “news” re Dearbornistan, let’s review a backgrounder on AG Holder’s Islamic putsch via the kiddies; a tag-team approach with Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

Muslims in the White House Administration

Burqas32
Kiddie Penetration: Islamic (kiddie) penetration takes many forms – burqas and the like.

There’s a new controversy in Texas involving the online public school curriculum called CSCOPE, which already has been the subject of heated debate and state legislative hearings.

This is the dreadful situation facing America’s kiddies, even as one of the most well-known private schools, Exeter Academy, trucks with terrorists, Obama’s surrogates are hide nor hare in interfering. Why? As if.

Full Disclosure: a few close acquaintances/business associates graduated from the halls of Philips Exeter Academy (the subject below) back in the early 1980’s, and just a few years before its Islamic infestation. These individuals are at the top of their chosen professions, therefore, the influence many of its graduates yield is considerable, even if not in the Presidential arena.

‘Academy That Produced Three Presidents Now Terrorist Breeding Ground’

Accomplishment Two:

MY word, even the IRS has jumped onto the bandwagon, in the rush to Islamize children, and this time in Europe! American taxpayers are funding overseas indoctrination! Did you know this?

Now isn’t this amazing on the close of tax season. It seems that the US taxpayers have a surprise. Some of the tax money from the US is not going to pay the National Debt. It’s not going to pay for the money taken from Veteran Pensions to pay for illegal immigrants in the United States. In fact, the money you pay to the IRS may not even be going to welfare. Instead your tax dollars are going to pay for the Islamification of Europe!

According to an investigation by WND and the Gatestone Institute many of the United States taxpayers are paying for a program overseas to teach children about Islam and attempts to convert the impressionable into becoming Muslim.

According to their research, the program directly targets the Czech Republic and is paid for by a grant from the US Embassy in Prague. The program called “Muslims in the Eyes of Czech Schoolchildren,” admits fully to being funded by US Taxpayers through the US Embassy. The grant is a branch of the Anna Lindh Foundation, the European Commission Representation and the Prague library. The program is fully supported by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports according to the coordinator and lecturer Klara Popovova.

IF the readers take away anything from this commentary’s thesis, suffice to say this: a double-prong plan is in place, one which is supported by Islamic leaders in America (aided and abetted by Brotherhood front-arms, throughout the Mid East & Africa) and their Marxist counterparts.

INTRINSICALLY, they are aiming, arming, for “soft” stealth jihad and frontal attacks. In effect, they are marching through America’s (and Europe’s, but let’s not digress) public (and some private ones too) schools, inch by inch leading the kiddies toward Islam’s “ways”. Basically, capturing their young and impressionable hearts and minds.

ON the other side of the Islamic thrust, the frontal one, there is no doubt that jihadists are lying-in-wait and will aim for “soft” targets first; schools and gathering places for children, when the signal to pounce is given.

BE prepared for them….

School Bans Christian Club — Again


Obamacare

October 6, 2014 By

http://www.tpnn.com/2014/10/06/school-bans-christian-club-again/

Starnes Christian Club
CP 01Educators at Ward Melville High School are either woefully ignorant of the U.S. Constitution or they really don’t like Christian teenagers.

For the second year in a row, the Long Island, New York high school has denied students the right to form a Christian club.

“I feel like they have something against me and my faith,” 17-year-old John Raney told me. “I feel marginalized.”

John is the founder of Students United in Faith, a service-oriented Christian club. Nearly 20 young people wanted to join the club – but the school said no.

“I wanted to start the club because I thought it would provide a safe space for Christians to meet and talk about their faith,” he said.

As John noted, there aren’t many places like that in Long Island — especially at Ward Melville High School.

So here’s the back story:

cp 12Last year, the school pulled the same stunt. They banned John’s club because of its religious nature. Attorneys with Liberty Institute, a law firm specializing in religious liberty cases, stepped in and threatened to sue.

After a school district investigation, Superintendent Cheryl Pedisich reversed the ban and apologized to John.

She told television station WCBS the initial reason for rejection was “apparently inaccurately conveyed.”

And by “inaccurately conveyed” she means they got their hand caught in the religious liberty cookie jar.

Fast forward nine months later and the school once again is telling the Christian kids they aren’t welcome to co-mingle.

I called the school district to find out what was going on. They said they would get back to me. I’ll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, John said Assistant Principal Christian Losee cited a lack of student interest in the group as well as the school’s “financial limitations.” But those excuses did not hold water.

John said there were at least 17 students who wanted to participate in the club. That seems like a pretty respectable number.  And if, in fact, the LMSELCHD Sacred Cowschool had money trouble, why did they approve four new clubs this year?

So John picked up the phone and called Liberty Institute, a nationally known religious liberty law firm. “I cannot imagine why they would come back a second time to discriminate,” said attorney Hiram Sasser. “For some reason, Ward Melville High School does not want to follow the Equal Access law.”

Sasser fired off a letter to the school district demanding the Christian students be allowed to form their club.

“This is not a complicated issue,” Sasser wrote. “Simply put, public schools cannot discriminate against religious clubs and must treat them equally, and provide them equal access to school facilities, as non-religious clubs.”

Attorney Sasser was able to compile a list of all the school’s clubs – 33 in all. They’ve got everything from a fishing club to a ceramics club. They even have a Gay-Straight Alliance.

“They let all these other clubs meet with no problem whatsoever,” John told me. “But the second me and my friends mention faith or mention God, they get up in arms about it – like there’s something wrong with believing in these things.”

Sasser said the law is clear. It doesn’t matter if only two people wanted to join the Christian club – the school would have to accommodate them.

“If they allow the fishing club, they have to allow the Christian club, too,” he said. “They cannot exclude the Christian club.”

After what happened last year, I suspect the school knows that. It seems to me they’re just engaged in a bit of bullying and intimidation.

“It sends a chilling message to all faith groups – telling them the school views these clubs as not acceptable,” Sasser said.

more tolerantJohn’s mom, Trudy Fischer, told me she’s proud that her son is sticking up for the club.

“I was really surprised in today’s age that children still have to stand up for their First Amendment rights,” she said. “Tolerance is really preached in their school. They talk about tolerance, but when it comes to this – there is no tolerance. They want to shut them up.

That’s right, Trudy. They want your son to shut up. They want to marginalize these young Christian teenagers and make them think there’s something inappropriate, something sleazy about their religious beliefs. But what’s truly sleazy is government-employed bigots continuing to bully Christian teens trying to do good deeds.

School Assignment on Islam Left This Mother in Disbelief


Obamacare

by / on October 6, 2014 at 9:27 am

Jennette Hall, whose 10th grade daughter attends Jenison Public School in Jenison, Michigan, was astonished after she saw the assignment her daughter received in her World History class on Islam.

School Assignment on Islam Left This Mother in Disbelief

The assignment directed students to make a pamphlet which would then be created to fit curriculum suitable for third graders.

“It was an assignment given to my 10th grade daughter in her World History class. The assignment was to make a pamphlet geared toward a third grade audience. They did not actually hand them out to third graders. This assignment upset me because they are teaching that Allah is the same God of the Christians and Jews. This paper, in my opinion, is promoting Islam by describing Allah’s names as beautiful. To me this is not simply factual as it should be. I have a meeting on Tuesday with the principle of Jenison High School to discuss my concerns.”

school 01

school 02

Imperial Islamic President ObamaNot only was the assignment riddled with inaccuracies where it states that Christians, Jews, and all other religions worship the same “god” as Muslims, it is full of propaganda — stating that the Muslims’ god “Allah” is the “ONE and ONLY GOD.”

The assignment then goes on to paint the prophet Muhammad as the wonderful and peaceful messenger of “God” whose spiritual revelation produced Islam. They leave out the historical FACTS, however, that Muhammad was a mass murderer, terrorist, misogynist, cult leader, rapist, torturer, assassin, narcissist, and not to mention a pedophile — who married his child bride Aisha when she was just six years old.

Below is a the text version of the assignment the students received:

Part 1: Introducing Islam

Islam and Muslims- The name of this religion is Islam, the root of which is SILM and SALAM, which means “peace.” SALAM may also mean, greeting one another with peace. One of the beautiful names of god, is that he is the peace. It means more than that; submission to the ONE GOD, and to live in peace with the creator within oneself, with other people, and with the environment. Thus, Islam is a total system of living. A Muslim is supposed to live in peace and harmony with all these segments; hence, a Muslim is any person, anywhere in the world whose obedience, allegiance, and loyalty are to god, the LORD of the universe.

Part 2: Muslims and Arabs

The followers of Islam are called Muslims. Muslims are not to be confused with Arabs. Muslims may be Arabs, Turks, Persians, Indians, Pakistanis, Malaysians, Indonesians, Europeans, Africans, Americans, Chinese, or other nationalities.

An Arab could be a Muslim, a Christian, a Jew, or an Atheist. Any person who adopts the Arabic language is called an Arab. However, the language of the “Quran” the holy book of Islam, is Arabic. Muslims all over the world try to learn Arabic so that they can read the Quran and understand its meaning. They pray in the language of the Quran; namely, Arabic.

Supplications to god to be in any language. While there are 1 billion Muslims in the world, there are about 200 million Arabs. Among them, approximately about 10 percent are not Muslim. Thus, Arab Muslims constitute only about 20 percent of the Muslim population of the world.

Part 3: Allah The One and the Only God

Allah is the name of the one and only god. Allah has 99 beautiful names, such as: the gracious, the merciful, the beneficent, the creator, the all-knowing, the all-wise, the lord of the universe, the first, the last, and others.

He is the creator of all human beings. He is the god for the Christians, the Jews, the Muslims, the Buddhists, the Hindus, the Atheists, and others. Muslims worship God whose name is “Allah.” They put their trust in him, and they seek his trust and his guidance.

Part 4: Muhammad

Muhammad was chosen by God to deliver his message of peace, namely Islam. He was born in 570 CE (Common Era) in Makkah, Arabia. He was trusted with the message of Islam when he was at the age of 40 years. The revelation that he received is called the Quran, while the message is called Islam.

Are you outraged yet? It looks as though the mom is handling the situation adequately so far, with her plans to pay the principal of the school a little visit and voice her concerns. If students are taught anything about Islam, it should be based on facts and current events. If the school wants to show the truth about Islam, perhaps they should show the students a couple of beheading videos so they can see first hand what this “peaceful” religion is truly all about.why

Colorado Students March Out to Protest Patriotism

SchoolProtest

Students in suburban Denver proved Tuesday that you can lead a victim of liberal brainwashing to water, but you can’t make him think.

Hundreds of students walked out of classes on Tuesday, in protest of a proposal before the county school board that would change the history curriculum to include lessons that teach about positive aspects of the United States, promote civic duty and instill patriotism.protest

The students naturally were mimicking their teachers, who have already staged two sickouts to protest the idea of turning children into well-adjusted, happy citizens.

With all due respect to the little cherubs who carried signs insisting that “Nothing is more patriotic than protest,” your teachers should have instead taught you that defending the Constitution, respecting the Declaration of Independence, following the rule of law, loving your country and obtaining an education that extends beyond knowing how to Google stuff and text message your friends are among the many things that are more patriotic than protest.Public Schools wheels coming off

Americans have done their share of protesting, to be sure. But it’s only justified when someone or several someone’s are getting away with breaking the law. Even then, it’s preferable to write or telephone your representatives, to set up meetings with officials, to educate your community and finally to vote.

Protesting should not be the go-to tactic, as it is with the Left, because it’s a mean-spirited intimidation tactic, too often used to bully people into doing something and shutting down rational debate.Never Argue Group

But to march out of classes and protest a curriculum change to teach you the meaning of patriotism, all while claiming to be acting in a patriotic manner? That’s called irony, kids.

It’s also called ingratitude and ignorance, along with a few other choice words.

And allowing yourselves to be used by your teachers in service of a political agenda that regularly uses protest as a means to destroy patriotism and bring down our republic (not a democracy)? That, children, is called being a “useful idiot,” a term attributed to a man named Josef Stalin, a dictator.

A dictator is someone who puts himself above the law and rules the people around him through intimidation.

That’s a lot like the current president, Barack Obama, who illegally uses executive orders to enact laws when Congress won’t give him what he wants.

By the way, he represents the same party most of your teachers belong to, the one they don’t want you to protest because they say that would be unpatriotic.

That’s called a double standard, or hypocrisy.

Let’s call it a class, kids. For your homework, read the Declaration and the Constitution, then say the Pledge of Allegiance before school. Article collective closing

More Evidence That Societies Wheels Are Coming OFF


Las Vegas School District Considers Teaching 5-Year-Olds About Masturbation

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com

http://www.lifenews.com/2014/09/24/las-vegas-school-district-considers-teaching-5-year-olds-about-masturbation/Eagle Really

We live in a hyper-sexualized society where so-called experts think it wiser to push sex on younger and younger children. The abortion industry doesn’t mind at all, because Planned Parenthood can prey on young impressionable teens and pre-teens by telling them that early sex is perfectly fine and can exploit them to sell them abortions when the young girls become pregnant.

With that in mind, here’s the latest from Las Vegas, where apparently there are not enough clients for the legal prostitutes so they need to convince children at a young age to become interested in sex.

As one report indicates, the public school system is considering teaching 5-year-olds about masturbation. Because America’s schoolchildren are doing so well in reading and science compared to their international peers:

kids5School districts across America continue to push the sex education boundaries, seeking to teach controversial subjects to students at younger and younger ages.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the Clark County School District – the 5th largest district in America – is seeking parental input on an idea to “expose students to a lot more a lot earlier.”

School children of that age range would also be taught that “touching and rubbing one’s genitals to feel good is called masturbation.”Public Schools wheels coming off

School officials began airing the curriculum at “closed-door” meetings of parents that were invitation only.

That didn’t sit well with the ones that weren’t invited and they showed up at the school board meeting to eviscerate the idea.

“You want to teach my 5-year-old how to masturbate?” said parent Julie Butler, according to the paper.

“We certainly should not be teaching five-year-olds that masturbation and pleasuring one’s body is good and that a 12-year-old should know about the very details of anal and oral sex,” another parent said, reports KTNV.

According to Fox 5, parent Ronald Withaeger said to school board members, “‘Masturbation should be done in a private place.’ That’s kindergarten through third grade. You’ve got to be kidding me. There’s no need to know that at that age.”

A high school student told the board, “I think I went through about 20 pages and I couldn’t continue with it because some of the stuff was just too disturbing to me at the age that I am and I’m 17-years-old.”

School Accused of ‘Purging’ Christian Books


Obamacare

http://www.tpnn.com/2014/09/23/school-accused-of-purging-christian-books/

September 23, 2014 By

TheHidingPlace-cover
It’s hard to imagine that any school would have a problem with a book about a Christian family that helped Jews escape the Holocaust.cp 12

But Springs Charter Schools in Temecula, Calif., not only had a problem with “The Hiding Place,” they also took issue with any other book that was written by a Christian author or included a Christian message.

“We do not purchase sectarian educational materials and do not allow sectarian materials on our state-authorized lending shelves,” Superintendent Kathleen Hermsmeyer wrote in a letter to attorneys at the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI).

Pacific Justice Institute is representing a parent who discovered what they called a “Christian purging” of the charter school’s library.

“She was told by one of the library attendants that the library has been instructed to remove all books with a Christian message, authored by Christians, or published by a Christian publishing company,” read a letter PJI sent to the public charter school. “The attendant advised that the library would no longer be carrying those books. Indeed, our client was told that the library was giving those books away, and she actually took some.”

Among the books deemed inappropriate, the PJI said, was “The Hiding Place” the biography of Corrie ten Boom, a Dutch Christian who was imprisoned by the Germans for helping Jews escape the Holocaust.

“It is alarming that a school library would attempt to purge books from religious authors,” said Brad Dacus, president of the religious advocacy group. “This is a major sweep by this charter school to eliminate the religious viewpoint. Libraries cannot engage in an open purging of books simply because they are of a Christian perspective.”

cp 07Dacus said the charter school must reverse “their ill-conceived and illegal book-banning policy.” If they fail to do so, he said, PJI is prepared to take further legal action.

So why would a public charter school take issue with books written by Christians?

I figured Superintendent Hermsmeyer would be more than willing to set the record straight and explain the book purging. It seems I figured wrong. I gave her 24 hours to return my calls, and as of this writing, she has not done so.

But she did reply to the letter she received from Pacific Justice Institute. And what she told them was a bit alarming.

“We are a public school, and as such, we are barred by law from purchasing sectarian curriculum materials with state funds,” she wrote. “We only keep on our shelves the books that we are authorized to purchase with public funds.”

I’m guessing Harry Potter is OK but Frodo is not.

Pacific Justice Institute said the charter school has violated the First Amendment. They cited a 1982 Supreme Court ruling that said “local school boards may not remove books from school library shelves simply because they dislike the ideas contained in those books and seek by their removal to ‘prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion.’” If you’d like to read the entire case – it’s “Board of Education, Island Trees Union Free School District No. 26 v. Pico.

Hermsmeyer denied they were discriminating against Christian authors or publishing companies.

“At no time, however, have we discriminated against Christian authors or publishing companies who create secular educational materials,” she wrote.

cp 08Heaven forbid the children find a Bible in the library.

It’s quite unfortunate that the charter school endorses the banning of books.

“Some of the greatest literature of Western civilization comes from religious authors,” Dacus said. “Are they going to ban the sermons or speeches of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?”

I oppose all book banning. If a book offends you, don’t read it.

The way I see it – book banning is just one step away from book burning. And I don’t mean to pour gasoline on the fire, but we all know what regime did that.

Satanic Information to be Given to Children in Florida Schools


Obamacare

Read more at http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/09/satanic-information-given-children-florida-schools/#Ati0tAbC4Hujrx6B.99

Chris Carrington 10 hours ago

A group called the Satanic Temple is to start distributing information about their practices and beliefs to school children in Florida.

Last month the authorities decided that they would permit the distribution of religious materials in Florida schools, and the Satanic Temple claim to be a religion so they can legally give out the pamphlets to kids.

The information will include advising the kids of their legal right to practice satanism, the philosophy of satanism and the way the Satanic Temple works.

Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves explains: “We think the responsible thing to do is to ensure that these students are given access to a variety of differing religious opinions, as opposed to standing idly by while one religious voice dominates the discourse and delivers propaganda to youth.”

“I am quite certain that all of the children in these Florida schools are already aware of the Christian religion cp 12and its Bible, and this might be the first exposure these children have to the actual practice of Satanism. We think many students will be very curious to see what we offer,” Greaves added. (source)

Are the decision makers in Florida completely insane? Satanic worship has been linked to many deaths over the years, and it will continue to be a causative factor in many future deaths, possibly more than would have otherwise occurred if the Satanic Temple continues on its path of blurring the lines of good and evil in our children’s minds.

To name but a few of the cases where satanism has been a motive for killing:

Sandy Hook

Aurora

The Craigslist Killer

The Manson killings

Night Stalker Killings

Son of Sam killings

Sean Richard Sellers

Jim Hardy

The Corriann Cervantes murder

The Northport murder

How long do you have because I can go on like this for a long, long time…

The Elyse Marie Pahler murder

The Robin Hood Hills murder

The Lisa Hyder murder

The Andrew Lee wright murder

The Meraz-Espinoza case

Still with me?  This is just a few examples of homicides where Satanism has been implicated as the whole reason, or a part of the reason that the Christian Persecutionkilling took place. In many cases the killers themselves have admitted their links to Satanism, and they didn’t do it as part of an “I’m insane” defense strategy either.

  • In a state where a child is expelled from school because she criticized the school on Facebook, and where 86% of disabled children cannot be accommodated in charter schools you would have thought they had bigger problems to solve than making sure Satanists get their fair share of publicity.

  • Florida, the state where a child is excluded from school because he takes a toy gun in his bag and another is kicked out because a science experiment went awry, and then she is faced with felony charges over the incident.

Makes you wonder doesn’t it?where

Elementary School Brainwashes Children with Assembly Celebrating Homosexuality


 

http://www.tpnn.com/2014/06/11/elementary-school-brainwashes-children-with-assembly-celebrating-homosexuality/

June 11, 2014 By

Rainbow

 

Gay MAfiaAccording to a concerned parent in Oakland, California, Glenview Elementary School recently indoctrinated children with an assembly that taught children as young as 5 “queer” history and the meaning behind the rainbow flag. 

Beginning with a long explanation as to the value of diversity, the assembly took a turn for the inappropriate when a homosexual activist parent took to the stage to explain the history of the rainbow flag and sing songs about homosexual freedoms. 

Parents were not alerted to this assembly, however, and one irate parent shared a video of the assembly that the school had put on their website. According to the irate parent,

There is a video on the school’s website showing the assembly… It was nothing more than homosexual indoctrination about the meaning of the rainbow flag and “queer” history. On stage was the rainbow flag but NO American flag. And then a “gay men’s chorus” sang songs about homosexual “freedom.” 

PI 19This is an elementary school and children as young as 5 were present. Like I said, parents were NOT informed in advance. My child brought home a bookmark with the rainbow flag on it and a quote from radical lesbian poet activist, Audre Lorde, whose work includes a book called “Uses of the Erotic.” This is for Elementary School! … 

Then they show videos about how all “families” are the same – two dads, two moms, etc. The video of the entire assembly is on the school website. 

While many might consider it alright for children to be exposed to this kind of discussion, such decisions are definitely one to be made by parents, not school administrators.
The Glenview parents were not alerted to this assembly and promoting a homosexual lifestyle to children in the context of a discussion about the value of diversity is tremendously inappropriate.

“When you have to resort to sneaky behavior, you already know your message is wrong. PI 20Shoving this message down our throats has gotten bitter. It has to stop. The righteous indignation of Christian parents has to rise to thunderous proportions. We have to do this together. Our children are dear to God and His wrath is ready to fall. I do not want to be one that wrath falls on because I stayed quiet.” JB

The College Board’s Attack on American History


Imagine having your teenager emerge from a U.S. history course with only a vague recognition of the name “George Washington.” Suppose that course mentioned the father of our country with reference to only one speech – no discussion of his military leadership and triumphs, his personal sacrifice to accept the call to become the first President, or his wise and steady leadership during the tumultuous first years of our nation. 

To put this into perspective, imagine how South Africans would respond if an unelected agency issued a history of their country that contained just one reference to Nelson Mandela.

Beginning in August, such a course will be offered to 500,000 of America’s most talented high-school sophomores and juniors – the College Board’s new AP U.S. History Framework. The new College Board Framework will replace the traditional 5-page topical outline with a 98-page document that dictates how teachers should cover the required topics. George Washington gets one brief mention; other founders, such as Benjamin Franklin and James Madison, none. The Declaration of Independence is referred to in passing in one clause of one sentence.

Leftist Revisionist

by WhatDidYouSay.org

If the Framework virtually ignores the most important men and documents in American history, what does it find worthy of attention? The answer is, pretty much anything that casts a negative light on our country. The redesigned Framework inculcates a consistently negative view of American history by highlighting oppressors and exploiters while ignoring the dreamers and innovators who built our country.

Propaganda Alert

by WhatDidYouSay.org

The Framework asserts that the British-American colonies were characterized by the development of “a rigid racial hierarchy” (page 27) that was in turn derived from “a strong belief in British racial and cultural superiority” (page 29) – and teaches that much of the rest of American history was shaped by those beliefs. There is much emphasis on mistreatment of slaves and native people, but none on truly revolutionary founding principles that laid the groundwork for the freest nation on earth (consent of the governed, development of democratic institutions, religious liberty). World War II was a time of racial discrimination and other inequities, not of massive sacrifice and achievement by soldiers and civilians alike.

These omissions reflect not only a leftist slant on our history but also a general view that academic historical knowledge is unnecessary. At a conference recently held in Atlanta, Lawrence Charap, head of the College Board’s History and Social Sciences Content Development Group, told high school teachers that the new AP U.S. History course and exam will eliminate the unnecessary memorization of irrelevant facts and replace actual knowledge with “historical thinking skills.” Mr. Charap then cited America’s Lend-Lease program — which provided over $50 billion in military equipment to help our allies defeat Hitler — as an example of an irrelevant fact that should no longer be taught. Unlike the myopic Mr. Charap, Stalin recognized the Lend-Lease program’s vital contribution to the war effort when he offered this toast: “To American production, without which this war would have been lost.”

Leftist Revisionist

by WhatDidYouSay.org

The College Board has a responsibility to provide a balanced curriculum that acknowledges both America’s founding principles and its continuing struggles to be faithful to these principles. Instead, the new College Board Framework seems determined to create a cynical generation of what it calls “apprentice historians” – students who “know” everything bad about their country but very little that is good.

“…students who “know” everything bad about their country but very little that is good.” JB

The redesigned Framework is best described as a curricular coup that sets a number of dangerous precedents. By providing a detailed course of study that defines, discusses, and interprets “the required knowledge of each period,” the College Board has in effect supplanted local and state curriculum by unilaterally assuming the authority to prioritize historic topics. The Framework establishes the priorities, and anything that doesn’t fit with its leftist, revisionist view of American history is either minimized or omitted.

“….. that doesn’t fit with its leftist, revisionist view of American history is either minimized or omitted.” JB

Leftist Revisionist

by WhatDidYouSay.org

College Board spokespeople insist that the new Framework will allow teachers the flexibility to teach the Lend-Lease Act or any other state-mandated topic or person they wish. But the College Board’s own website confirms that the AP exam will focus exclusively on content specified in the Framework. In short, what isn’t tested won’t be taught.

“…..the AP exam will focus exclusively on content specified in the Framework. In short, what isn’t tested won’t be taught.” JB

The redesigned Framework is thoroughly biased, poorly written, ineptly outlined, and consistently negative in tone. These egregious flaws must be corrected. Teachers, parents, and school officials have a responsibility to demand that the College Board address these issues before the new school year begins. And legislatures and governors should eliminate this course from the schools.

UCLA Muslim Groups Demand US Jewish Students sign Nuremberg-like Oaths not to Associate with Jewish Groups


http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/05/ucla-muslim-groups-demand-us-jewish-students-sign-nuremberg-like-oaths-not-to-associate-with-jewish-groups/#ux3ECccxWurUOwVB.99

Reported by

The walls are closing in on status of equality of Jews in America. Anti-Semites and Islamic supremacists have been pursuing their bigoted agenda of hate under the guise of the invented Palestinian narrative. After years of battering and bullying, they have reached a tipping point. A terrible, horrible tipping point.

The targeting and mistreatment of Jews on the UCLA campus has grown increasingly virulent – while the university’s administration and the mainstream media yawn. One particular Jewish student at UCLA, Avinoam Baral, is being vilified and targeted incessantly by Muslim groups. Muslim Brotherhood groups, so named in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history, are demanding that Jewish students sign Nuremberg-like oaths not to associate with Jewish groups, in their continuing jihad against the Jews.

Daniel Mael, a student at Brandeis and a courageous defender of truth and freedom, reported Thursday that “the editorial board of Al-Talib, the Muslim Newsmagazine at UCLA, called on Jewish student Avinoam Baral to disassociate himself from the pro-Israel program Hasbara Fellowships due to the group’s alleged Islamophobia. Al-Talib alleged that the Jewish program “actively (contributes) to violence against Muslims” and asked that Baral, who is a candidate for Internal Vice President in upcoming UCLA student elections, separate himself from the program.” Al-Talib is notorious for having referred to Osama bin Laden as a “freedom fighter” in a 1999 article.

“Got it yet? Another case of calling EVIL good and GOOD Evil. They actually expect us to pay attention to them.” JB

In denouncing Baral, Al-Talib said that “this is NOT to say that Baral is an Islamophobe,” but added: “This IS to say that if Baral does not share those Islamophobic beliefs, he should find it easy to distance himself from organizations that actively contribute to violence against Muslims.” It declared, “that is the only way to provide a measure of reassurance for Muslim students that the Islamophobic message produced by these organizations will not be legitimized should he be elected to office.”Really 01

Al-Talib is closely tied to UCLA’s chapter of the Muslim Students Association (MSA). According to Discover the Networks, “as revealed in documents seized by the FBI and entered as evidence in a Texas court, the Muslim Students Association is a legacy project of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is an organization formed by a Hitler-admiring Muslim named Hasan al-Banna in Egypt in 1928.”

“One more time for emphasis; “as revealed in documents seized by the FBI and entered as evidence in a Texas court, the Muslim Students Association is a legacy project of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is an organization formed by a Hitler-admiring Muslim named Hasan al-Banna in Egypt in 1928.” HITLER ADMIRING MUSLIM” Oh yes. We really do want to pay attention to whatever they have to say.” JB

The magazine’s effort to strong-arm Baral is part of a larger leftist and Muslim effort to demonize Israel and her defenders. The UCLA paper, the Daily Bruin, reported Tuesday that “all candidates running with the FIRED UP! and LET’S ACT! slates and none running with Bruins United have signed the Joint Statement on Undergraduate Students Association Council Ethics, which asks for councilmembers to refrain from taking free or sponsored trips with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, the Anti-Defamation League or Hasbara Fellowships.” It noted also that the MSA supported the statement as well.

The Daily Bruin story said that Baral, “the Bruins United candidate for internal vice president and the current chief of staff for the Internal Vice President’s office, said he did not sign on to the statement because he thinks that councilmembers should have the freedom to associate with different organizations and to educate themselves about different topics through trips as long as they are not violating the USAC bylaws or constitution.”

Indeed. This initiative is an attempt to declare that support for Israel is outside the bounds of acceptable discourse. That’s what UCLA has come to. Administrators should step in and put a stop to these intimidation tactics. But they won’t. They issued a non-statement about the matter, saying essentially that they weren’t going to do anything: “UCLA encourages a climate of respectful engagement among students, faculty and staff, even in situations that are very difficult, painful and complex. Student government functions independently, its proceedings proscribed by a constitution that makes available to students and student groups a process to review issues of alleged conflicts of interest. UCLA encourages all involved in this particular process to deliberate in an honest, respectful and inclusive manner.”

This is the state of academia today – not just at UCLA but all across the country, as BDS initiatives grow in popularity. Supporters of Israel are increasingly shut down, shouted down, and physically menaced by assertive, aggressive leftists and Muslims who know that administrations will do nothing to rein in their thuggery. Universities are supposed to be centers of learning. For Jews, they’re instead increasingly precarious, dangerous places.

California Schools Still Teaching Students to Bow to Sun God

School districts all over the country are facing budget deficits. They are scrambling to find ways to cut expenses. One school district is looking at replacing traditional PE classes with a form of yoga, saving the costs of expensive athletic equipment and it’s not setting well with a number of parents.

The Encinitas Union School District brought in Ashtanga yoga to replace the physical educational classes in grades K-6. Yoga has always been tied into a religious experience and Ashtanga yoga is no different as it has its roots in Hinduism. During the class, students claimed that they were told to pray to the sun god and to make themselves one with god, but not the one true God.

“Somebody please tell me why this hasn’t been all over the news?’

“Where is the ACLU?’

“Where are the Atheist?’

“Why aren’t heads rolling for even having the thought to do this?” JB

Sonia Tudor Jones with the Jois Foundation, also known as the Somina Foundation, is working with the school district to develop the yoga program. She said that she wanted to:

“Spread the gospel of Ashtanga through the country and even internationally.”

“Spread the ‘GOSPEL’? Where is the ‘GOOD NEWS’ (That is what the word Gospel means) in Ashtanga yoga?” JB

Parents Stephen and Jennifer Sedlock sued the school district for teaching religion. The National Center for Law and Policy, a non-profit Christian organization represented the parents. In July 2013, San Diego Superior Court Judge John Meyer ruled that the school was not teaching religion and that the yoga classes were acceptable.

NCLP has now filed an appeal with the Fourth District Court of Appeals, asking the court to shut down the program. They said that in the first trial, the judge:

Tyranney Alert

“Acknowledged that, although not structured as a religious foundation per se, Jois/Sonima is ‘deeply involved in yoga and Ashtanga yoga’ and ‘has a mission to establish and teach Ashtanga yoga.’”

The appeal still claims that supporters of Ashtanga yoga have:

“Affirmed … explicit teaching that the mere ‘physical practice’ of the yoga … leads practitioners to ‘become one with god … whether they want it or not.’”

“Evidently, in spite of Judge Meyer’s stated grave concerns about Jois Foundation’s mission to promote Ashtanga yoga to public school children and Ashtanga devotee Jen Brown’s transparent conflict of interest as a Jois Foundation employee and EUSD yoga teacher, these red flags were not enough to cause Judge Meyer to find ‘excessive government entanglement with religion’ and suspend the religious yoga program.”

“The judge is an idiot and should be thrown off the court. If this were a Christian teacher endivering to do the same thing with Christianity, this same judge would have her drawn and quartered.” JB

Dean Broyles, Chief Counsel for NCLP stated:

“The Sonima Foundation is a religious organization with a religious agenda. They have the explicitly religious ‘outreach’ ‘mission’ of teaching Ashtanga yoga to children, which is based in Hindu religious beliefs and practices.”

“[The school district] has violated the First Amendment and has committed an egregious breach of the public trust.”

“I am appalled that Sonima is arrogantly pushing ahead with its national public school launch prematurely, before the three-year study is complete and before the appeal is decided. This shows a callous disregard for religious freedom, parental rights, and the importance of objectively studying the program.”

It only goes to reason that in today’s America that you can’t teach anything resembling Christianity in the public schools, but you can teach all about Islam and various eastern religions including Hindu based yoga. Our kids and grandkids are taught to pray to Allah and the sun god. They are taught to meditate and become one with some eastern religion’s god. But the moment a teacher mentions Jesus, God, Bible, 10 Commandments or Christian, the courts quickly rule to stop it.

America – once Christian, is today everything but Christian.

“AMEN!” JB

Students in a California school district will not be allowed to wear American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo, due to concerns that such displays of patriotism would inflame racial tensions by offending Mexican students on their holiday.

Let me get this straight. American born children, cannot express patriotism during an “IN-YOUR-FACE” celebration of a holiday in a foreign country, where these students, who many are here illegally, are from? In addition to that, you’re telling me that it is  far more important NOT to offend the Mexican students, but it is okay to offend native born Americans? REALLY?????? JB

The district’s policy concerned many free speech advocates, but was upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

In response, Tea Party groups plan to protest outside Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill. And they will be wearing American flag T-shirts. (RELATED: Latino student group says eating tacos is offensive to Mexicans)

“They silenced a symbol of patriotism and freedom in America,” said Georgine Scott-Codiga, president of the Gillroy-Morgan Hill Patriots, in a statement to KCBS.

The trouble dates back to Cinco de Mayo in 2010, when the school forced four students to remove their American flag T-shirts. Administrators worried that fighting would break out between white and Latino students if the shirts were noticed, and so the four offending students were sent home.

The practice of limiting one group’s free speech rights because that speech might cause another group to react violently is known as the “heckler’s veto.” It is understood by free speech enthusiasts to have a chilling effect on First Amendment rights. (RELATED: ‘I Started A Whole Fake Hate-Crime Thing… So I Didn’t Have To Do My Homework’)

The Ninth Circuit, however, ruled in February that the school was legally permitted to abridge white students’ free speech rights in service of Latino students’ feelings. (Anyone out there surprised at all that that decision came out of the “United Socialist State of California’s” Ninth circuit court? JB)

The Tea Party protest is focused on the free speech issue, said Scott-Codiga. See the local news report of this tragedy below.

Teacher Confiscates Bible from 2nd Grader


http://lastresistance.com/5549/teacher-confiscates-bible-2nd-grader/#HJAw2uhHsjpf3WVo.99

Posted By Dave Jolly on Apr 26, 2014

Why is it that teachers seem to be so uneducated about the trampling of the rights of their students?  If they paid any attention to the media, they would see a plethora of cases where teachers were found to be wrong when they exerted their personal agenda and violated the constitutional rights of students.  They expect students to learn what’s going on in the world around them so why aren’t the teachers practicing what they preach?

This rant is prompted by yet another teacher violating the constitutional and First Amendment rights of a second grade student at Hamilton Elementary School in the Houston suburb of Cypress, Texas.

During a ‘read to myself’ time in class, a second grade girl was reading her favorite book, the Bible.  When the teacher saw her, she took the Bible away from the girl.  The parents of the girl contacted the Liberty Institute instead of contacting the school directly.  They have asked that their identity be protected for fear of retaliation of some sort.

When attorneys with the Liberty Institute contacted the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District, school officials informed all district employees that it is okay for students to read their Bibles during independent reading time.

Michael Berry, Senior Counsel with the Liberty Institute said that the school library where the incident took place contains copies of the Bible for students to check out and read, prompting him to ask:

“So if it’s appropriate for their own library, why on Earth would it not be appropriate for their own students?”

One parent who has a child attending the school, Jennifer Muse commented about the incident when she heard the news:

“They are letting them read the Hunger Games, that’s kids killing kids, why can’t she read the Bible.”

However, another parent, obviously a liberal Democrat believes the teacher responded appropriately because of the so-called separation of church and state.  This demonstrates just how much some people have been brainwashed by anti-Christian liberals.

First off there never was a separation of church and state and secondly, the First Amendment gives the student the right to read her Bible on her free time without school or teacher interference.  I suspect that the teacher involved was either ignorant of the law or had her own personal anti-Christian agenda.  Unfortunately, there are many of both kinds of teachers in the public schools and more times than not they are getting away with it.

This is another reason why I believe that every teacher should be required to take a course or courses in constitutional law so that they know what is and isn’t allowed before they ever set foot in a classroom.  Then ignorance would no longer be an excuse and teachers who try to push their own personal agenda on their students can be singled out and dealt with accordingly.

My Own Two Cents

With all the incidents happening in various parts of America, I tend to believe that this was personal, and a private agenda of this teacher. When has it ever been acceptable for any teacher, at any level, to push their own personal agenda onto their students? This is a primary reason what State run schools have become Hitler’s type of schools. The Leftist are following his design of growing a nation of children that are brainwashed to the will of the Self-Appointed; Liberal; Leftist; Marxist; Socialist; Communist; Social-Engineering; radical-Left extremist who are determined to recreate the United States into their twisted, philosophical design.

This is one patriot that will fight them every step of the way.
