Hate Crimes and the Relativism of the Left

Brian Levin performed some serious mental gymnastics at the Huffington Post in an effort to determine whether the shooting at the Washington, DC headquarters of the Family Research Council should be considered a hate crime.

Seriously? This shouldn’t be such a hard thing to figure out. But then we are dealing with the obvious, and that always causes liberals an inordinate amount of consternation.

Liberalism: Another Primer

More from a history textbook that will never grace the hallowed halls of a public school:

What phenomenon at the beginning of the 20th century threatened to destroy the roots of Western civilization?

Liberalism

Define modern liberalism.

Modern liberalism is the desire to be free from absolute standards and morals, especially those of the Scriptures.

To what end does modern liberalism lead?

Modern liberalism usually leads to the imposed restraints of government control over many aspects of life, resulting in the transfer of responsibility from the individual to the state.

(Given the trail Obama is blazing, look for a primer on fascism in the near future.)

And my mantra remains the same: If you are ignorant of history, you will be doomed to repeat it. Thanks to the ignorance epidemic in this country (and thank you public education), Obama’s plans to turn this country into a socialist state will, no doubt, come to fruition.

According to The Heritage Foundation, President Reagan Saw This Coming

Too bad the rest of America doesn’t.

Obama’s Obots: A Primer

Ann Coulter: More Boos Than Balls

Well, if booing an outgoing president and singing, “Na Na Na Na, Hey, Hey, Hey! Good-bye!” at an inauguration is any indication, then I’d say the mature part of Obama’s presidency has begun.

Quote of the Day: Plugging Ann Coulter

For today’s quote of the day (and the only quote of the day that has ever graced Seeing Red), I offer up Ann Coulter from her new book Guilty: Liberal Victims and Their Assault on America:

“The media’s fawning over Obama knew no bounds, and yet, in the midst of the most incredible media conspiracy to turn this jug-eared clodhopper into some combination of Winston Churchill and a young Elvis, you were being a bore if you mentioned the liberal media.”

If ever I had a hero…

Will America Get a Clue?

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government.

It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote

themselves largess of the public treasury. From that time on

the majority always votes for the candidates promising the

most benefits from the public treasury, with the results that

a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always

followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s

great civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have

progressed through this sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith;

from spiritual faith to great courage;from courage to liberty;

from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness;

from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy;

from apathy to dependency; from dependency back again to bondage.”

This quote has been credited to Sir Alex Fraser Tyler (1742-1813), Scottish jurist and historian. (It has also been debated whether or not this was said by him.)

Nonetheless, the truth of it cannot be escaped. Which brings me back to the point I am continually trying to drive home: History will continue to repeat itself if it isn’t taught.

Public Education and TV in America: How the Left Controls the Polls

Warning: This post is long, slams liberal ideology, and is worthy of a plush seat and a tall cold one.

While the leftist, Hollywood Politico wing-nuts are running the show (and the election) in this country, I find it stunning that no one seems to be able to figure out why. But what I find truly disturbing is that conservatives are scratching their heads wondering how this could be happening.

I’ve got two words: Education and TV.

Once again, it’s time for a history lesson and a dose of reality. We’ll start with the history lesson.

The number one reason militant, immoral liberals are lauded and deified while they mock and tear at the very moral fabric of this nation, (and waltz into power) is because, for the past eight decades or so, America’s children have been subject to a nasty little version of behavior modification called Public Education. There, I said it. I’m finally coming out of my home school closet with the gloves on. It’s time to pay attention.

To fully understand the the culpability of America’s pub-ed system, we must take a little trip back in time. Think back to the one-room school house and those little minions who actually got an education. The Bible, in many cases, was the book that was used as the “reader” to teach the children to…well, read. Things were moving along rather well until…

…Jump to the early 1900’s -John Dewey and Co. What a guy. John Dewey was a pragmatist, and a proponent of what was then affectionately called Progressive Education. Dewey and his followers thought up a system to reform the schools. But the schools weren’t in need of reform. The seeds of an interminable, liberal, Democratic pattern were being sown.

Dewey and his cohorts denounced traditional schooling. You know, the type that actually educates and trains children to think critically. Dewey wanted to replace the traditional schooling method with a child centered approach. Bottom line: They weren’t so much interested in learning as in socializing children, getting them accustomed to group activities and taking the direction of the group. I call it Sheeple Camp. They proposed to use the schools as the entering wedge for transforming society. In short, they sought to use the schools as a training ground for collectivism (that would be Obamaism, otherwise known as socialism) under the guise of being progressive. (Think: Change and hope. History is repeating.)

Who were Dewey’s cohorts? John Gatto, former New York state Teacher of the Year, and author of Dumbing Us Down writes:

Edward Thorndike (he is the Thorndike of the Thorndike/Barnard dictionary), and John Dewey of Columbia’s Teacher’s College and their industrialist allies [John D.Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, and J.P. Morgan], decided to bend government schooling to business and the political state just exactly as it had been bent in Prussia. A higher mission would exist too. Schools would serve as “instruments of managed evolution, establishing conditions for selective breeding before the masses take things into their own hands” (Quoted from a published essay by Edward Thorndike at Columbia Teacher’s college in 1911).

More from Thorndike:

It will, of course, be understood that directly or indirectly, sooner or later, every advance in the sciences of human nature will contribute to our success in controlling human nature and changing it to the advantage of the common weal.

Then there is this from the very first report issued by John D. Rockefeller’s General Education Board. This is their first mission statement:

“In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present education conventions of intellectual and character education fade from their minds and unhampered by tradition we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into men of learning or philosophers, or men of science. We have not to raise up from them authors, educators, poets or men of letters, great artists, painters, musicians, nor lawyers, doctors, statesmen, politicians, creatures of whom we have ample supply. The task is simple. We will organize children and teach them in an perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way”.

But let’s not stop there; here’s a montage of the ideas from the men behind the morphing of America’s public education system over the years.

“The children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming, where everyone would be interdependent.”-John Dewey

“Our schools have been scientifically designed to prevent over-education from happening. The average American [should be] content with their humble role in life, because they’re not tempted to think about any other role.” -William Torrey Harris, U.S. Commissioner of Education from 1889-1906.

“Ninety-nine [students] out of a hundred are automata, careful to walk in prescribed paths, careful to follow the prescribed customs. This is not an accident but the result of substantial education, which scientifically defined, is the subsumption of the individual.” -William Torrey Harris, U.S. Commissioner of Education from 1889-1906.

“Individual talent is too sporadic and unpredictable to be allowed any important part in the organization society. Social systems which endure are built on the average person who can be trained to occupy any position adequately if not brilliantly.” -Stuart Chase, The Proper Study of Mankind, 1948.

“Nothing is more central to the maintenance of social order than the regulatory mechanisms employed to control and socialize our children.” -Ronald Boostom, Coordinator for Juvenile “Justice” in California, 1980.

I won’t even go into how poorly American children do on those incredibly mind-numbing standardized tests, or how colleges are having to lower their standards for their incoming freshmen, and I’ll skip the part about how the schools are handing out diplomas to functional illiterates en masse. It’s old news by now. And for all the money the National Education Association lobbies for (…er…it’s for the children…), nary a dime goes into actually, educating the kiddos. Last time I checked, the Democratic National Committee got more than the students. But make no mistake, this is all by design.

Suffice it to say, the talk of “fixing” America’s schools is pointless. It would be right up there with such worthwhile endeavors as nailing Jell-O to a tree, or trying to convince Bill Clinton that sex outside of marriage is a bad thing. Based on history, public education in America (and the Clinton’s marriage) is chugging along exactly as planned. Where once there were Bibles, we now have condoms. Where once was taught history, we now have political correctness, environmentalism, and anti-America rhetoric. Where once the kids actually learned, now they are shot. Yes, I’d say things are moving along quite smashingly.

So, how does all this tie to the current election and the gaggle of lunatics who seem to be running the show? To answer that, another question must be addressed: Why does it seem as if no one really understands what is at stake in this election? Here’s the key, folks. Precious few truly understand because the goal of the progressivism that spawned our government-run educational system has been met. Vast amounts of our population are uneducated in history and economics (by the pub-ed’s design), unable to think logically or critically (by the pub-ed’s design), and thus, unable to see the danger that lies ahead (again, by the pub-ed’s design).

And just what is the danger? The danger is in the forfeiting of this nation’s sovereignty, and our liberty to the Democratic group-hug called collectivism, aka, socialism. Make no mistake, the founding fathers of public education were unabashed collectivists. And their heirs are no less determined.

And who are their heirs? Glad you asked. Tenured college professors who willingly and knowingly train future teachers in the art of social reconstruction, humanism, and globalism; the Hollywood elite who have cashed in on America’s steadily declining intellect and morals; prominent newspaper and media moguls who, over the years, have raked in millions from the very giants who blueprinted our educational system. In the words of Goose, “The list is long, but distinguished.”

But enough with history. Now for the dose of reality. It’s time for that smack between the eyes that nearly everyone, present company included, deserves. Because, while it’s easy on the conscience to point the finger at the left, the sad, unavoidable truth is this: The other reason the Hollywood Politico wing-nuts have been given credibility while they assault America with their congressionally protected degeneracy and their blathering hate-America political lunacy — the reason they’ve been awarded the big nod is this: Americans arrange their living rooms, and their lives around the television.

Think about it.

America worships at the shrine of HDTV. We can’t live without it, at least that’s what we are being led to believe. From TVs hanging from the ceilings of malls and Wal-Marts, the mini TVs running the CNN ticker at bank drive-through lanes, and the scads of idiot boxes in doctors’ and dentists’ offices, you’d think the average American incapable of a single moment lost in quiet thought.

Ah, but isn’t that the point? A person who engages in the thinking process is a dangerous person in the eyes of a liberal, even if that thinking is done during the ten minutes it takes to buy a gallon of milk. Which, by the way, is about all the time it would take to realize that The View is a complete waste of time.

Big conspiracy theory, right? I don’t think so. As we all know, the old-school way of getting TV reception (the use of rabbit ears or tin foil wrapped around the cat’s tail) will be a thing of the past by February 2009. And since that means the freeing of millions from the blatherings of Katie Couric, Oprah, and the rest of the main stream media’s highly trained journalists, the government had to save the (their) day. Salvation, my folks, is coming in the form of a taxpayer-funded voucher. 

Now why would the government do that? Sounds kind of cryptic in a benevolent sort of way. Well, actually, it is. Anytime the government hands out money to “assist” people, it nearly always translates into the government using the tax payer’s money to further their agenda. In this case, and in the case of the NEA, the goal is to maintain a steady stream of liberalism flowing into the minds of Americans, young and old. And everyone knows that those who think like a liberal will vote like a liberal.

It’s genius, really.

So, again, talk of fixing the schools or holding the media accountable for its content is, in my estimation, a pointless endeavor. Both institutions are running exactly as intended, and the people running the show are in their positions by design. Did I mention it was genius?

If we can find alternative fuels (I’m still not on board with corn-fed cars, by the way.), then I’m fairly certain we can find alternatives to education and entertainment that won’t maim trees or deny mating space to the eastern Alaska snow rat…or Pamela Anderson. But are Americans, the conservative Americans who claim they are fed up, willing to educate their children or turn off their televisions?

Sadly, I think I already know the answer.

When Liberals Speak…

And I ask, who needs Comedy Central with these folks around?

Senator and Republican Presidential Hopeful, John McCain on Hillary’s Attempt to Spend $1 Million on the Woodstock Concert Museum:

My Way News – McCain Rejects Fox Request to Cease Ad

“A few days ago, Senator Clinton tried to spend $1 million on the Woodstock concert museum. Now my friends, I wasn’t there. I’m sure it was a cultural and pharmaceutical event. I was tied up at the time.”

Priceless.

A little “He said, She said” with Romney and Hillary:

Schwarzenneger Reich On Track With California Liberals

WorldNetDaily: The words ‘Mom’ and ‘Dad’ banished by California schools

According to World Net Daily:

Mom and Dad” as well as “husband and wife” effectively have been banned from California schools under a bill signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who with his signature also ordered public schools to allow boys to use girls restrooms and locker rooms, and vice-versa, if they choose.

Working on the premise that our species can actually survive by having heterosexuality abolished, Schwarzenegger signed a bill banishing the words “Mom and Dad” and “husband and wife” from being used in public schools. Apparently those nasty words are offensive to gays. Right-Wing Nut Job is offensive to me, but who’s complaining?

So, I’m curious, what do homosexuals call their parents? Do they even acknowledge that they have parents?

I’m convinced that this is a move to pander to the extremely extreme Left. You know, that segment of the liberal left that even the liberal left has a hard time claiming. Unfortunately, in California it’s hard to delineate between the two.

I find this all rather hypocritical. What about the book Heather Has Two Mommies? Looks like the Terminator just banned the lib’s favorite book. And what about Melissa Ethridge’s quote? I’m now a mother understanding the meaning of life and looking to walk that every day.” If the term “mother” isn’t offensive to Etheridge, then why should “Mom” be offensive to the gay community?

Understandably, parents (until further notice the term “parent” is still a go) are pretty angry with the bill. According to Karen England, executive director of Capitol Resource Institute:

“With this decision, Gov. Schwarzenegger has told parents that their values are irrelevant. Many parents will have no choice but to pull their children out of the public schools that have now become sexualized indoctrination.” centers.

Aha! Now parents have no choice but to pull their kids out of public school. I see. Finally, the straw that broke the camels back, eh? Cuddle puddles, teaching evolution and global warming as fact, in-services on donning condoms, oh, and getting shot in school weren’t clear enough indicators that dropping the kiddos off at the local pub-ed isn’t a good idea? Suffice it to say, the average American parent is a little slow on the uptake.

But honestly, this isn’t funny.

That this bill was even thought up shouldn’t come as a shock. And Gov. Arnold signing it shouldn’t surprise either. What do you expect from a man who once said, “My relationship to power and authority is that I’m all for it. People need somebody to watch over them. Ninety-five percent of the people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave.” Kind of sounds like a German guy who once said, “What luck for the rulers that men do not think”.

Think I’m being paranoid? Think again. Ordering kids to disavow their parents’ rightful titles and reject the institution of marriage so as not to offend a deviant segment of society is just one more step toward turning the youth in this country into mindless propaganda machines who blindly accept political correctness as fact. And what are the odds these future Liberal mini-me’s will possess any critical thinking skills? Zilch. And to boot, they’ll be morally bankrupt. What more could a bunch of power-hungry liberals possibly hope for?

This isn’t a new strategy. As Solomon said, “There is nothing new under the sun.” All that we are seeing has been done before. Read your history and tell me, if you can, who said this: “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.”

Yes, Karen England was right; parents have no choice but to pull their kids out of the public schools…if they love their kids and this great country.

Libs Losing Grip on Left Coast?


Aahhhh, back in the Red States at last! My journey took me to a Left Coast city that will remain nameless to protect the innocent.

Everyone knows the Leftist Left Coast libs are a bunch of granola munching, gasoline hating, coffee addicted, owl saving, Birkinstocked ninth circuit court liberals who hate Bush, right? Well, maybe not so much. Based on bumper stickers, bookstores, and gasoline consumption I came to the conclusion that a certain city may not be living up to its liberal reputation.

Take bumper stickers for instance. It is common knowledge that you can get a feel for a place’s political bent based on the bumper stickers plastered on the local cars. If you find yourself surrounded by cars sporting slogans such as, “You’re never really alone on a farm”, “Clinton lied but no one died” and “Boykott Faktory Chikin”, you might want to head out of town. Conversely, if you find yourself surrounded by stickers saying, “My heroes have always been straight cowboys”, “PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals”, and “My SUV can beat up your Prius” you might want to talk to a local realtor.

But where I was, there is an eerie lack of bumper stickers even though the local paper had tried in vain to encourage their use. Truly, a kind of creepy Stepford Car mentality prevails out there. I could only surmise that the city is filled with a) closet liberals who are too embarrassed to tout their beliefs, b) closet conservatives who are too scared to tout their beliefs, or c) it is filled with people whose minds have been washed completely clean of thought, which, oddly enough, brings us back to point A. No matter how you look at it, the bumpers of this anonymous city give precious little insight into the minds of the people. In the area of political stickers alone, the tally came out: Kerry/Edwards – 3 stickers; Bush/Cheney – 2 stickers. And this was after a week of driving around the city and being stuck on I-5…uh, I mean, the interstate. Either only five people voted or the rest aren’t admitting it.

As with bumper stickers, book stores are also a pretty trusty indicator of a city’s political leanings. Since the mainstream chain stores like Barnes and Noble or Borders are just latte houses filled with retro liberals feigning the thinking process I avoided those. Instead, I went to the smaller locally owned bookstores and was surprised to find an actual attempt at balance. While you’d be hard pressed, and sneered at, if you inquired about Bernard Goldberg’s 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America at Barnes and Noble, I found it, and many other conservative titles, in the smaller local bookstores. Some conservative titles even got front-of-the-store display privileges. Go figure. Of course there were scads of liberal books at these stores as well, but for the most part, I was pleasantly shocked by the brazen display of anything conservative. Maybe these store owners know that conservative books bring in the bucks. But wouldn’t you need a conservative clientele to know that? Hmmm…something smells fishy.

On the Eco-Bunny-Enviro-Ad Nauseum front, I found that our mystery city guzzles gas with reckless abandon. As I sat on their sluggish highways and watched a dizzying array of bumper stickerless SUV’s inch by me I realized that not only are they burning precious fuel but they weren’t even carpooling! And I didn’t see one car with a cornhusk protruding from the gas tank or with an extension cord trailing behind it. Just a bunch of beautiful greedy American trucks and SUV’s shamelessly consuming the gas that supposedly keeps Bush in designer tighty whities. As the owner of, not one, but two SUVs, I was shocked and a tad giddy.

Yep, if the bizarre behavior of its residents is any indicator, it appears the libs are losing their grip on a key city. But until the evidence proves more conclusive, said city will remain unnamed.
