Leftists Destroy Everything in Their Path

The Left’s embrace of mass insanity is becoming more absurd by the week.

Published

Today, every ‘progressive’ or leftist viewpoint and activity is designed to remake, or more accurately,  destroy our society: From no need for voter ID, to restrictions on the First Amendment, to the prolonged and now questionable lockdown over COVID-19, to upending women’s sports, to Biden’s laxity about illegals.

Do You Concur?

The Left salivates over the idea of total authority and of imposing its will on all of us, forevermore. Do you believe as leftists do, that it is fine to teach children that there are more than 50 genders? Do feel that young children may choose their gender? Do you think that cross-dressers should be reading to children at story hour?

Is the 1619 the date of our founding? Should entire college curricula be redesigned because most of the great works of literature throughout history have been written by white males? Should mathematics, the sciences, and other core academic disciplines be taught to accommodate ‘politically diverse’ points of view?

Are you okay with colleges holding separate graduation exercises and celebrations for different ethnic minorities? Should conservative speakers on campus be disrupted from speaking, or be banned altogether from campus? Should colleges set up safe spaces? Leftist love such developments.

Can a university promise students an unbiased education when 97% of college professors’ political donations go to Democrats? Should student loan debt be exonerated? What if I recently paid off my entire debt? Do I get my money back? Or am I a stooge for having paid my bills?

Health and Welfare

After a baby is born, is it the right of the mother and the doctor to choose whether or not that person will continue to live. Is late trimester abortion acceptable? ?

Should Medicare be provided for all and, if so, how do you pay for it? Are illegal immigrants to be given free healthcare the moment they cross the border? Indeed, should we have open borders, and let in anybody who wants to come here?

Are sanctuary cities a good idea, and do they support the lives and aspirations of actual American citizens?

Stoked By a Complicit Media

Is it okay when law enforcement is ordered to stand down in the face of violence committed by those on the left? Do you care about victims of violence, or do you only get riled up when the mainstream media stokes your emotions?

When newspaper headlines scream about gun violence, is wringing your hands over the issue any solace for families in Chicago or Baltimore ghetto communities who experience gun violence on a daily basis?

Are the goals and violent tactics of Antifa acceptable to you? Are they just an ‘idea’ like President Dementia claims? If Antifa members are proud of what they stand for, and forthright in their actions, why do they wear ski masks? Why do they often go after the most vulnerable people they can find in any gathering?

Appearing in selected cities in time to cause trouble, and leading the turmoil following the death of George Floyd last summer, how many Antifa members actually hold jobs? How many pay for their transportation and housing costs to and from riot locations?

If they do not pay for themselves, who, pray tell, is paying?

You Cannot Reason with the Left

Is a comment made by a movie star or celebrity – or a politician, for that matter – 30 or 40 years ago sufficient to cancel his or her career? Is calling others racist acceptable when, in your own heart, you know that you are biased at times? Is virtue signaling an acceptable form of social participation, or should one actually take appropriate, non-violent action to address a wrong?

The lockdown of the last 13 months has given us all a taste of what socialism is like. What’s more, Leftists don’t understand the magnitude and ramifications of many of their political and social views. As the 2020 summer riots, looting, and continuing mayhem in Portland and Seattle illuminated, the Left’s agenda will destroy our civilization within a few years.

Ronald Reagan said it best, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men [and women] were free.”

It would be great to reach some consensus with those on the Left, however that would be cultural and national suicide. Why? The Left’s embrace of mass insanity is becoming more absurd by the week.

Education

Academic Underachievement As a Permanent Condition

Academic achievement occurs through individual effort: One boy and one girl after another rising above

Published

on

On the state and local level, as decisions are made about how and in what form we will educate the nation’s children, an age-old issue remains. The underlying causes of income inequality and civil unrest likely has less to do with media-inflamed coverage and more to do with a lingering issue that few people want to earnestly discuss: educational disparity.

In virtually every U.S. school system, the disparity year after year, decade after decade, and even longer, in mathematics competency, reading proficiency, test scores, honor roll status, and graduation rates, between African American students and other students is disturbing.

A Disturbing Reality

Here in the third decade of the third millennium, with a male African American high school dropout rate at 40% across the U.S., can anyone view the situation optimistically? Any responsible American would understandably be concerned.

As Eric Hanushek, who is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, as well as a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, exclaimed “It’s remarkable.” Following his extensive analysis of the situation, he remarked, “I knew that the gap hadn’t been closing too much, but when I actually looked at the data I was myself surprised.”

In one community after another, and one school system after another, when strenuous efforts to bridge the gap do not bear fruit, invariably someone yells “foul,” as if some grand conspiracy is occurring and a magic wand, yet to be waved, could suddenly redress all. And, as if hard-working, dedicated teachers are not attempting their utmost for each of their students.

An Undesired Path

Consider the school system in Chapel Hill-Carrboro, North Carolina. This locale, deemed, “The southern part of heaven,” by a variety of writers, is among the most progressive in the United States. The teachers and educators here have a vested interest in demonstrating that their school system, beyond all others, can succeed in the vital area of closing achievement gaps between whites and minorities.

Nevertheless, year in and year out the gap remains. So, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Education becomes primed to try anything! Another in an endless line of supposed “fixes” was to eliminate the advanced math classes in the middle schools and to lump all non-pre-algebra students together, with similar plans to eliminate other advanced classes such as in language arts.

Just as you cannot easily erect a sound building on quicksand, and you cannot expect to solve a decades-old problem by starting with a shaky foundation. Taking a lowest common denominator approach to developing school curriculum has never consistently worked, anywhere. It frustrates the students and dramatically increases a teacher’s burden – all such students must then be taught at individual learning speeds. Do you know any superhuman teachers? If so, could you afford them?

Face the Real Issues

Permanently closing the academic gap between underachieving students and the rest of the student population requires addressing reality – airing the truth about the disparity – not resorting to politically “correct” psychobabble and curricula finagling for another ten years, and then another ten, and then another.

This disparity encompasses such issues as the number of hours the television is on in given households, family or parental encouragement for completing homework assignments, a regular workspace, and established hours for studying in a quiet environment, among other factors.

Until solid analysis, exploration, and programs that address these issues are undertaken, no amount of wrangling with classes will prove to be the “winning formula.” And, school boards will have no chance of effectively addressing the continuing problem of poor academic performance among student groups.

In Arthur Conan Doyle’s short story The Sign of Four, detective Sherlock Holmes says, “…When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” The schools in U.S. communities routinely exhaust talented teachers with a task that cannot be solved by them, nor is it theirs to solve.

Students Eager to Learn

However improbable to those who wish to pretend otherwise, academic achievement occurs through individual effort: One boy and one girl after another rising above and cracking the books, then coming to class as serious students, eager to learn, and primed to excel. Such achievement is not likely to occur any other way.

Otherwise, expect that income inequality and civil unrest will continue for decades into the 21st century.
