Has Education Gone Mad or is there Another Explanation?

During the past week, reports of activities on college campuses and in K-12 public schools point to derangement. But because of the complicity of the administrators of these institutions, something else could be taking place. Here are just three examples of the kind of activity going on in schools across the country:

 

Principal Steve Nelson of New York’s exclusive and so called progressive school was quotes in the New York Post as having told parents in an email last week that the Trump presidency was more troubling than Vietnam, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the September 11 attacks and Watergate, The Post has learned…

Nelson emailed a series of anguished ruminations on Donald Trump’s ascent to Calhoun parents, simultaneously calling for non-partisanship while skewering the billionaire’s policies. 

Nelson specifically said that he was “more troubled now” than he was watching “soot-covered New Yorkers grimly trudging north on West End Avenue on September 11, 2001.”

Sadly, as the Post explains, the vast majority of the parents and students that they spoke with cheered on the Principal’s comments and were in complete agreement with them. Think about that. A large group of citizens who live in New York City believe that Donald Trump as President is “more troubling” than the events of 9/11. So, according to a school principal, Trump’s election is worse than 9/11 or the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Insanity or something else?

 

A Georgetown Professor Jonathan Brown, a convert to Islam, stated that rape and slavery were ok if done in the name of Islam. During a recent lecture at the International Institute of Islamic Thought, Brown told his audience that men do not necessarily need consent to have sex with a woman, and that slavery is not in and of itself wrong.

In a lecture that spanned about an hour and twenty minutes, Dr. Brown condemned the practices of slavery in the West (and China), while attempting to argue that slavery in the Muslim world has been far kinder and gentler (which is completely untrue). Dr. Brown also argued that slavery had become “racialized” in the West but was non-racial in the Muslim world, another blatant lie. Lastly, Brown argued that forced labor in the West was abusive but that no such practice ever occurred in the Muslim world. The professor uses Orwellian doublespeak with these remarks.

“It’s not immoral for one human to own another human,” Brown stated in his clearest defense of slavery. Brown went onto state that being an employee is basically the same as being a slave…

And on the question of rape:

“Consent isn’t necessary for lawful sex,” said Professor Jonathan Brown of Georgetown University… Brown emphatically stated consent is a modern Western concept and only recently had come to be seen as necessary (perhaps around the time feminism began to take root and women decided they wanted autonomy over their bodies). Brown went on to elaborate consent wasn’t necessary to moral and ethical sex

Dear reader, we are speaking of Georgetown, a formerly great university. How has Professor Brown been able to keep his job promoting rape and slavery? Why has the administration not condemned the rant? Insanity or something else.

The University of California Berkeley riots against the First Amendment caused a great deal of personal harm and hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage. Although Chancellor Nickolas Dirks condemned the riot, he virtually invited the riot with these provocative remarks:

In our view, Mr. Yiannopoulos is a troll and provocateur who uses odious behavior in part to “entertain,” but also to deflect any serious engagement with ideas. He has been widely and rightly condemned for engaging in hate speech directed at a wide range of groups and individuals, as well as for disparaging and ridiculing individual audience members, particularly members of the LGBTQ community. Mr. Yiannopoulos’s opinions and behavior can elicit strong reactions and his attacks can be extremely hurtful and disturbing. Although we urge anyone who is concerned about being targeted by Mr. Yiannopoulos to consider whether there is any value in attending this event, we stand ready to provide resources and support to our community members who may be adversely affected by his words and actions on the stage (we will provide more detail about these resources in a subsequent message).

Is this insanity or something else? And what else could it be? Perhaps the educational establishment is joining with the media in trying to delegitimize President Trumps electoral victory. In addition, perhaps the educational establishment is trying to delegitimize the values of those 63 Million voters who elected him.

  1. Niki Hayes says:

    The field of education started being “consumed” in the 1920’s with those following John Dewey and other Progressives. K-16 schools are now almost complete pools of socialist and radical philosophies that allow the institutions to promote their “romantic, emotional, narcissistic” views while tearing down traditional/classical ideas. We, as citizens, have stood silent while their takeover grabbed power over and territory of minds of children. We are reaping the results of our country’s lack of interest in education.
