Getting Ready for the New School Year? Then Prepare for Hating Haters Indoctrination

Maybe it might best be described as Hating Trump Voters 101.

I’m not spending a lot of time on this, too much backed up in my posting queue, but I just saw this Opinion piece at the Philadelphia Inquirer that tells us to see the Southern Poverty Law Center‘s “Hate at School” report. (I’m betting there is nothing in it about how to treat even Trump supporters with respect.)

Do your kids have the “emotional intelligence” to be ready for the 2020 Presidential election? Indeed are they ready to confront “racism, sexism, and heteronormativity” this year?

If not, may I suggest home schooling!

To confront the 2020 election cycle, we need emotional intelligence in schools | Opinion

In the history classes I teach, I begin with a digital dialogue called “What Gives Us Pause.” Before we begin formal instruction, I invite students to share with each other the social and political currents that worry them most, or make them most hopeful for the future. This dialogue unleashes a flood of student voices.

Every year, students name wars that tear nations apart, gentrification that disrupts the fabric of urban communities, environmental crises, and hate and prejudice. I expect them to talk about the most recent incidents of mass shootings and gun violence right here in Philadelphia. Very quickly, this bonds the classroom in ways that prepare us to support and hold each other accountable, and name patterns of behavior we witness — in the news cycle, on social media, and in our own lived experiences — as the year unfolds.

When I began teaching in 2007, the first years felt sterile. I was discouraged from getting too political or confronting social power structures like racism, patriarchy, or class. I was trained to believe that teachers had to create “safe spaces” that were apolitical and socially neutral. We celebrated civil rights victories but did not discuss the dark legacy of slavery. We didn’t talk about the environment. Textbook-driven instruction drove my practice at the expense of student voices and authentic connections with each other.

Grrrrr!  “Student voices!” “Authentic connections!”  But, did they learn anything about the Revolutionary War or the Civil War?

I digress…. after a recent visit to the Antietam Battlefield, a friend whispered a question—what about all the northern white families who lost their husbands, fathers and sons fighting to free the slaves, don’t they deserve reparations?

Jobs goes on….

Too often, public conversations stop at simply naming transgressions: identifying something as hurtful or difficult and then moving on. In other cases, policy-driven mandates aiming to keep discourse respectful — like bans on the use of specific words, music, readings, or opinions — leave little room for gray areas. School communities, on the other hand, can model practical responses to and discussions of these moments that young people can use their entire lives, including when confronting racism, sexism, and heteronormativity. [You can bet any students who support our President will never emote in Jobs’ classes!—-ed]

The SPLC calls it the “Trump Effect” (LOL! note the obligatory dark cover of the report!) https://www.splcenter.org/20190502/hate-school

The stakes feel high. The special report “Hate at School”by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Tolerance project showed a sharp increase in hate and bias in schools since the 2016 election.

Thankfully, the “Hate at School” report offers many entry points for engaging students, educators, and families in inquiry around how to notice, name, and combat acts of bias and hatred on an ongoing basis — not only when individual moments grow large and public. This defines the work that educators across the nation prepare to engage as school resumes, just over a year out from the 2020 election. [It is all about 2020 to the Progressives.—ed]

There is much more (if you can stomach it!).

Are you looking for a project?  Even if your kids are grown, how about looking into what is being taught in your local schools?

My post over the weekend about Michigan teachers being indoctrinated with incomplete information about Islam, see it here, was a huge success on social media.

Fascinating that the beat goes on at the Southern Poverty Law Center. You might think the media (and people like Jobs) would hesitate for a few minutes about using the work of the hypocrites at the SPLC after the incredible airing of their dirty (racist!) linen earlier last spring.

Group Seeks to Place 1,000 "Emerging Journalists" into US Newsrooms to Promote Progressive Agenda

As if it wasn’t bad enough—the media bias, that is—a group I had never heard of is recruiting young ethnically diverse “journalists” to fan out across America into newsrooms at local media outlets in what might be described as a seeding program for furthering their control over the already seriously Left-leaning media.

Report for America is an initiative of the Ground Truth Project.  A sample of their work!

 
In recent days I’ve been hammering the point that media, large and small, attempts to keep important details about migrant crimes from the public, this initiative would only make that worse in the coming five years as they seed young political activists disguised as journalists into your local papers and TV news stations.
Thanks to a reader from New Jersey who sent an advertisement for a job with Report for America.

Fake News Covers for Migrant Crimes

I’ve stolen the first part of a headline at Big League Politics for my headline because it can’t be said often enough!
Yesterday after I wrote the post about the gruesome murder of Mackenzie Lueck in Utah and said again that the media is (I believe purposefully) leaving out important facts when covering crime news so that they don’t step on their message that migrants*** are just good folks, just like us, looking for a better life.

Georgia illegals
The Georgian “choir-boys”, oops Guatemalans!

The great danger is that in so doing they have created a whole generation of Mackenzie Lueck’s, living in la-la land, who have no discernment and frankly cannot see that some migrants are monsters.
Thanks to reader Cathy for sending this news about a couple of those monsters being protected by the media in Georgia because it gives me an opportunity to once again repeat the message and give you more news items sent to me over the last week.
When I began writing ‘Frauds and Crooks’ in January, I told you that the Leftists (Progressives, or whatever you call them) will be telling heartwarming stories about migrants (LOL! their “new Americans”) in the run-up to the 2020 Presidential race, so it is very important that you tell the stories about the monsters in order to give some balance to their news!

New York Times Writer does Hit-Job on Americans in St. Cloud, MN

Well, I should say a hit-job on white Americans; the Somalis there are pure as the driven snow.

Astead Herndon
Reporter Astead W. Herndon.  Too funny! He made news this week when he labelled segregationist Senators as Republicans.  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/20/new-york-times-reporter-falsely-labels-segregationist-senators-republicans/

But, did anyone expect anything other than a hit from the New York Times? 
Anyone who raises any questions about how many migrants we should admit to America or asks what it will cost taxpayers, or any other sensible question is a racist, Islamophobic xenophobe especially if a reporter can link critics of uncontrolled migration to Donald J. Trump.
For the record, I don’t respond to requests from the likes of the NYT, the Washington Post, the LA Times etc. for an interview because no matter what you say, biased reporters will cherry-pick your words and paint you in the worst light as obviously reporter Alstead W. Herndon did here.
He went to St. Cloud with an agenda!
Herndon proves once again that Donald Trump is right about the media.
But, it isn’t all bad because a whole lot more people in America now know there is a big problem, a social upheaval going on in St. Cloud, and maybe they will think twice about putting out the ‘welcome’ mat to third world refugees.

Pew: Dying Cities Need More Refugees/Immigrants

Editor:  I’m going to be gone for a few days, so trying to get a couple of posts up this morning for you before I dash!
Frankly I have never bought into this idea that we have to continue to import millions of people to America every year to prop up dying cities and the Chamber of Commerce.

Erie PA protest
Immigrants protest President Trump in Erie, PA (Erie is the star of this story).  

Does anyone ever ask what the longterm costs are of ‘welcoming’ third world poverty to impoverished cities?
There is all this talk (as in this latest from Pew) about how they fill houses and apartments that would have otherwise been vacant, and that they supply low wage workers for global corporations (can you say BIG MEAT!).
But, what are the costs to the federal taxpayer as you will see obliquely mentioned in this latest prescription? And, what are the costs to our uniquely American culture?

Maybe dying cities are dying for a reason!  Maybe we should let them die (the buggy whip analogy)!

But the assumption always is—-accckkk! We can’t let that happen!
So we have the Dems teamed up (these cities are all Democrat-run and “new Americans” vote for the D’s) with the big corporations and the Chamber of Commerce merchants begging for more refugees and immigrants of all strips!
