Video: Heather MacDonald On How The Delusion of Diversity Destroys Our Common Humanity


Is the dedication to diversity undermining American culture? In her book The Diversity Delusion, Heather Mac Donald argues that the focus on race and gender diversity is harming society. Mac Donald and Peter Robinson discuss how she was protested off of school campuses by students because of her ideas. They discuss the collapse of free-speech ideals on college campuses in the United States and how the dedication to diversity doesn’t extend to a diversity of thought.

Mac Donald also breaks down issues of gender and racial equality. She talks about how affirmative action has not had the impact that was intended and has in fact made attending college more difficult for minorities who are accepted to schools they are not ready for. She also goes on to analyze rape culture on college campuses and posits her theories as to why discussions of sexual violence have become more prevalent now than in the past.

Video: Heather MacDonald Warns US Colleges Are Breeding Hate



Scholar: US Colleges Are ‘Breeding Grounds For Civil War’
Students taught to hate Western civilization, each other

 

American colleges have become ‘breeding grounds for civil war,’ warns author and political commentator Heather Mac Donald.

Mac Donald, regarded by many as a leading conservative intellectual and researcher, asserts that students are being trained to “hate” and obsess upon identity politics by predatory cultural Marxists in faculty and administration.

“Come the 80s, students were given a license for ignorance,” Mac Donald told Fox News host Mark Levin. “They were taught the only thing they needed to know about a book were the race and gender of the author to know whether it was thoroughly dismissable, without being read, and they could go on to instead wallow in their own delusional oppression.”

“It has only gotten worse since then, and what we are doing is breeding the grounds for, I fear, civil war,” she warned. “Because students are being taught to hate — to hate the greatest works of Western civilization, and frankly, to hate each other.”

“From the moment a student steps on college campus today as a freshman — or as a ‘freshperson’ I should probably say — the bureaucracy is determined to drum into that student’s head, identity politics, which says he’s either a victim or an oppressor,” she continued.

Mac Donald contends that this extreme manipulation of young minds is creating hordes of damaged collectivists who carry a “chip on their shoulders,” preventing them from “seizing the magnificent opportunities” and vast knowledge made available to them by modern society and technology.

“They carry this chip, this delusional victimology, into the world at large, and they are going around blaming American institutions of endemic racism and sexism when that no longer is true,” Mac Donald said.

Mac Donald’s comments echo sentiments she expressed in a recent article in the American Mind.

“The core sickness of the academy is not relativism but hatred,” Mac Donald wrote. “Students are taught to hate the greatest works of Western civilization, and to hate each other, based on the tribal trivialities of gonads and melanin.”

Mac Donald, a Fellow of the Manhattan Institute, made waves in 2016 with her bombshell PragerU presentation “Are the Police Racist?” analyzing police shootings and challenging the Black Lives Matter narrative.

9 Years Into Common Core, Test Scores Are Down, Indoctrination Up


 
Common Core sucked all the energy, money, and motivation right out of desperately needed potential reforms to U.S. public schools for a decade, and for nothing.
 
 
By Joy Pullmann
 

It’s been about nine years since the Obama administration lured states into adopting Common Core sight unseen, with promises it would improve student achievement. Like President Obama’s other big promises — “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” — this one’s been proven a scam.

“If you set and enforce rigorous and challenging standards and assessments; if you put outstanding teachers at the front of the classroom; if you turn around failing schools — your state can win a Race to the Top grant that will not only help students outcompete workers around the world, but let them fulfill their God-given potential,” President Obama said in July 2009.

He went on to state his faith that Common Core — at that point unwritten — would “not only make America’s entire education system the envy of the world, but we will launch a Race to the Top that will prepare every child, everywhere in America, for the challenges of the 21st century.” Race to the Top was a $4 billion money pot inside the 2009 stimulus that helped bribe states into Common Core.

So here we are, nine years later. Common Core has been officially rolled out into U.S. public and even many private schools for at least three to five years now. Are American children increasingly prepared for the “the challenges of the 21st century”? We’re actually seeing the opposite. They’re increasingly less prepared. And there’s mounting evidence that Common Core deserves some of the blame.
 

Student Achievement Largely Down or Flat

ACT scores released earlier this month show that students’ math achievement is at a 20-year low. The latest English ACT scores are slightly down since 2007, and students’ readiness for college-level English was at its lowest level since ACT’s creators began measuring that item, in 2002. Students’ preparedness for college-level math is at its lowest point since 2004.

SAT scores also dropped post-Common Core until it fully implemented a new version tailored for Common Core. How convenient. Even after the test was overhauled to match Common Core, average test scores increased by 0.7 percent in the most recent results. It represents almost no difference to pre-Common Core results, and the public can’t know exactly how the scores were recentered and altered, either.

Colleges: A Force for Evil


By Walter E. Williams
LewRockwell.com

Many of the nation’s colleges have become a force for evil and a focal point for the destruction of traditional American values. The threat to our future lies in the fact that today’s college students are tomorrow’s teachers, professors, judges, attorneys, legislators and policymakers. A recent Brookings Institution poll suggests that nearly half of college students believe that hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment. Of course, it is. Fifty-one percent of students think that it’s acceptable to shout down a speaker with whom they disagree. About 20 percent of students hold that it’s acceptable to use violence to prevent a speaker from speaking. Over 50 percent say colleges should prohibit speech and viewpoints that might offend certain people (http://tinyurl.com/yayxt45u). Contempt for the First Amendment and other constitutional guarantees is probably shared by the students’ high school teachers, as well as many college professors.

Brainwashing and indoctrination of young people has produced some predictable results, as shown by a recent Gallup Poll. For the past 18 years, Gallup has asked adults how proud they are to be Americans. This year, only 47 percent say they are “extremely proud,” well below the peak of 70 percent in 2003. The least proud to be Americans are nonwhites, young adults and college graduates. The proudest Americans are those older than 50 and those who did not graduate from college. The latter might be explained by their limited exposure to America’s academic elite (http://tinyurl.com/y8wapel5).

Video: Jordan Peterson - Dangerous People Are Teaching Your Kids


Dangerous people are filling the heads of young people with dangerous nonsense. Who are these people? They are what Jordan Peterson calls “the post-modernists:” neo-Marxist professors who dominate our colleges and universities. And here’s the worst part: we are financing these nihilists with tax dollars, alumni gifts and tuition payments. Time to wise up.

True Conservative: Trump to Pull Feds Out of Education


 
By Peter D'Abrosca
BigLeaguePolitics.com

 

The Trump Administration announced today that it will began taking steps to curb federal government overreach into public school systems around the country.

“For too long the government has imposed its will on state and local governments. The result has been education that spends more and achieves far, far, far less,” President Donald J. Trump said. “My administration has been working to reverse this federal power grab and give power back to families, cities [and] states — give power back to localities.”

The administration will conduct a 300-day review, led by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and the Department of Education’s Regulatory Review Task Force, and DeVos will be able to repeal measures which she deems to be federal government overreach. Power to educate students will return back to the states, counties, and towns.

It is the latest move in what has been an extraordinarily conservative presidency, for which Trump rarely receives credit, especially from establishment Republicans.

“We know local communities know it best and do it best,” Trump, said. “The time has come to empower teachers and parents to make the decisions that help their students achieve success.”

DeVos already has the power to repeal regulations that are deemed to be a violation of federal law, but Trump’s mandate, called the “Education Federalism Executive Order,” gives DeVos the latitude to identify and take action in areas where the federal government is simply failing schoolchildren.

“Previous administrations have wrongfully forced states and schools to comply with federal whims, and dictate what our kids are taught,” Trump said. “The time has come to empower parents and teachers to make the decisions that help their student achieve success.”

Once again, Trump is delivering on a campaign promise. He focused heavily school choice to reduce the scope of the federal government during his campaign, and his newest mandate will further his broader agenda of returning the power to educate back to localities, where it rightly belongs.

Dereliction of Duty

When will Republicans stand up to leftist political child abuse?


“We'll get you through your children," Allen Ginsberg to Norman Podhoretz.

 

Where did March for Our Lives come from?

We know where the organization, the money and the leadership come from.

But where do the hundreds of thousands of young people massing into crowds and calling for the abolition of the Bill of Rights come from? It’s not just the Right to Bear Arms: Freedom of Speech and of Religion have never been as unpopular among the youngest generation of voters as they are now.

They came out of the classroom. They’re the politically abused children preyed on by mental molesters.

Your local high school has some of the same radical programming as your local college. The toxic radicalism trickles down to elementary schools. And occasionally even begins in kindergarten.

Americans were shocked and disgusted at the sight of radical leftists dragging 5-year-olds out to participate in the walkout protests in Connecticut. But racist white privilege indoctrination is hitting kindergarteners in New York, Minnesota, Virginia, Missouri  and other states. Political indoctrination is being embedded in every subject, including math, with Teach for America pushing, “Teaching Social Justice through Secondary Mathematics”.  And teachers are usually radicalized before they ever enter the classroom with classics like Democracy & Education being replaced by Pedagogy of the Oppressed.

To radicals, your children and grandchildren are just another community to be organized into protests.

And while this political child abuse was going on in schools across the country, where were Republicans? If only some politicians would spend as much time protecting our children as they do the DREAMERs.  

Political child abuse doesn’t just happen in New York City, Boston or Los Angeles. It isn’t limited to blue states. Indoctrinated faculty with degrees in radicalism, administrators with big plans to spread radical division and non-profits pushing politicized courses can pop up anywhere.

The racist creed of Black Lives Matter isn’t just making its way into Baltimore, Washington and New Jersey schools. You can find it being embedded in schools in Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Kansas.

A Vermont school even flew the racist Black Lives Matter flag.

Walkouts against the Bill of Rights took place in Alabama and Iowa. At a Wyoming school, a test featured, "He was shooting at Trump" as an answer, and in a Utah school, a guest speaker declared himself, "Trump's worst enemy". Islamic indoctrination has found its way into schools in Kentucky, Florida, North Carolina, West Virginia and Missouri.

In Colorado, the Pledge of Allegiance began with, “One nation under Allah.”

Where are Republican legislators in these states doing while this political child abuse goes on?

Conservatives used to take, “We’ll get you through your children” to mean college campus brainwashing. But college students are adults. Children as young as 5 are now the targets.
