Indoctrination of students can be found just about anywhere these days. This week, eighth graders learn that Conservatism “restricts personal freedoms” and a University Professor called Republicans old, white, racist, and “losers.”
EAG News posted an assignment that defined Conservatism as restricting “personal freedoms,” and worse, sought to gain the ideological status of students with a “quiz” to find out where kids “stand” on issues. Hero mom Tamara Varebrook spotted the assignment and did something about it.
The must-see assignment features a crossword puzzle that defines conservatism as “the political belief of preserving traditional moral values by restricting personal freedoms…” Liberalism, on the other hand, was defined as “the political belief of equality and personal freedom for everyone, often changing the current system to increase government protection of civil liberties.” What a crock. The flip side of the assignment has a group of statements for the students to check off their beliefs. It is not a stretch to think that if a teacher does not agree with his or her students’ political views, he or she may “punish” the filthy conservatives through their grades.
Darry A. Sragow
Campus Reform reports that Darry A. Sragow, Attorney, Director at the “Constitutional Rights Foundation” (seriously?) and (of course) a Democratic strategist, taught a political science class at the University of Southern California (USC) seemingly just to “deliver sustained and angered attacks on Republicans,” who he characterized as old, white, racist, and “losers.” An old white guy himself, Sragow tells his students:
“California Republicans I just showed you are 30 percent registration in this state because they are really stupid and racist…The republican party in California as I say all the time on the record in print on the radio and on tv is the last vestige of angry old white people.”
Recently, Ryan Rotela, a student from Florida Atlantic University (FAU), refused to participate in a class exercise that required him to write the word “Jesus” on a piece of paper and stomp on it. He was suspended from the class for complaining.
In yet another recent story, Kara Sands, the mother of a fifth grader in Texas, noticed that her child’s homework assignment suggested that the United States is responsible for the 9/11/2001 terrorist attack and even worse, a worksheet on the Bill of Rights, listed “food and medicine” as human “rights.”
This persistent and sickening behavior should not be tolerated by anyone. Teachers should strongly denounce this behavior.
