Harvard Students Answer the Question: Which is the Greater Threat to World Peace, America or ISIS?
In a random survey recently conducted by Campus Reform, students at Harvard were asked, which is a greater threat to world peace, America or ISIS? The results on video surprised a lot of people. Many of these students answered that America was a greater threat to world peace than ISIS.
But, should we be surprised? We have heard college professors say similar things repeatedly. Ward Churchill, who first called the occupants of the Twin Towers on 9/11, “little Eichmans” was on The Megyn Kelly Show and said “I think the United States by its own rules is subject to being bombed… I say that if you open yourself up under rule of law for reciprocation in kind, it’s quite likely going to happen.”
Liberal indoctrination has become a real issue for families who don’t share those opinions and values. How do you provide a foundation in critical thinking for your children and give them the basis to withstand indoctrination that starts at the beginning of their educational process? Promoting patriotism, respect for authority, free enterprise, and a positive aspect of U.S. history seems to be grounds for students in one high school in Colorado to walk out in protest and teachers from two high schools to call in sick forcing the closure of those schools.
World View Indoctrination in our Schools
The teachers union, whose members forced two high schools to close by calling in sick, is against the implementation of performance-based pay. The union has encouraged and applauded student protests against what it’s calling academic censorship.
The average parent and taxpayer has little idea of what is being taught to our youngsters. In February 2006, I wrote a column titled “Indoctrination of Our Youth,” followed in March with “Youth Indoctrination Update.” Both columns focused on rants that a student secretly had recorded of a geography teacher at another Colorado school — Overland High School in Aurora. The teacher was Jay Bennish. He told his students that President George W. Bush’s State of the Union address sounded “a lot like the things that Adolf Hitler used to say.” He continued, “Bush is threatening the whole planet.” He then asked his students, “Who is probably the single most violent nation on planet Earth?” He shouted the answer, “The United States!” During this class session, Bennish peppered his 10th-grade class with other ridiculous statements, saying the U.S. has engaged in “7,000 terrorist attacks against Cuba” and telling his students capitalism “is at odds with humanity, at odds with caring and compassion … (and) at odds with human rights.”
Bennish reasoned with his class, “If we have the right to fly to Bolivia or Peru and drop chemical weapons (pesticides) on top of farmers’ fields because we’re afraid they might be growing coca and that could be turned into cocaine and sold to us, well, then don’t the Peruvians and the Iranians and the Chinese have the right to invade America and drop chemical weapons over North Carolina to destroy the tobacco plants that are killing millions and millions of people in their countries every year and causing them billions of dollars in health care costs?” This kind of anti-American teaching might help explain why some Americans have joined the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
At what age does this indoctrination begin in our schools? Many of us remember young children singing Obama’s praises reminiscent of school children in Germany during the Nazi reign.
To the tune of Glory, Glory Halleluiah: Mm, mmm, mmm Barack Hussein Obama
There are many more that have been written and performed in classes by unsuspecting students:
Common Core curriculum contains books in its first grade unit plan that celebrates families headed by same sex couples. ‘The Family Book’ by Todd Parr and, ‘Who’s in a Family?’ by Robert Skutch.
Does this answer the question: Why are the teacher’s unions and Democrats against charter schools and home schooling? Are they afraid of losing future supporters of the Democrat agenda? Who is really guilty of academic censorship? Parents have a responsibility to teach their child the values that will make them productive, independent and happy adults. That responsibility now extends to making sure what their children are being taught in school is accurate and conforms to the values they wish their children to grow up with. Otherwise you will have a student in college who thinks that the United States is more of a threat to world peace than ISIS.
