Top 10 Examples: Miseducating Young Adults Into Children

It seems that some of those adults charged with the “higher education” of America’s youth are hell bent on miseducating our children into perpetual toddlerhood.  Not only are our children being taught that feelings are the only barometer of right and wrong but they are also being taught that there is no dishonor in trampling the rights of others.  Additionally, sensitivities in these infantilized adults are intentionally being heightened to such an extent that they would have left our ancestors quivering in puddles of their own urine instead of carving the land of the [formerly] free and the home of the [formerly] brave out of a continent of wilderness.  What follows are the Top 10 Examples of Miseducating Young Adults Into Children from the past few weeks.

  1. MiseducationMelissa Click of the University of Missouri who insisted that she needed “… some muscle over here” to prevent a journalist from reporting on a public demonstration taking place in a public place.
  2. The master of Yale’s Pierson College said his title reminds distressed students of slavery.
  3. Wesleyan University’s student government threatened the budget of the school newspaper over a column critical of campus’ leftists.
  4.  A Washington State University professor indicated that she would lower the grade of any student who described those who immigrate to the U.S. in violation of U.S. immigration law as “illegal immigrants.”
  5. Another Washington State professor’s syllabus for “Introduction to Multicultural Literature” states that white students should demonstrate their “grasp of history and social relations” by “deferring to the experiences of people of color.”
  6. Another Washington State syllabus for “Women & Popular Culture,” threatened failure for those students who use derogatory or oppressive language such as “referring to women/men as females or males.”
  7. The University of Tennessee’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion suggested replacing problematic pronouns such as “he, she, him, & her” with gender-neutral terms such as “ze, hir, xe, xem, or xyr”.
  8. The University of California system’s sensitivity auditors declared the statements “I believe the most qualified person should get the job” and “America is the land of opportunity” as “hostile” and “derogatory.”
  9. The University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point’s list of racial microaggressions includes “America is a melting pot” and “There is only one race, the human race.”
  10. Mount Holyoke College canceled its production of “The Vagina Monologues” because it was considered insufficiently inclusive of women without vaginas…meaning men who ‘feel’ like they should be women.

Thanks to George Will for compiling the above list and more in his article, America’s higher education brought low.

Texas Loves Kids

Texas Education

Gotta love Texas.  Texas loves kids enough they feel that they are worth protecting in ways that work better than having one officer on hand who is nothing more than the first victim to any well planned attack.

I Do Not Know – Today’s Quote

Teach thy tongue to say, “I do not know,” and thous shalt progress.

Lewis On Values – Today’s Quote

Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

C.S. Lewis

Be A Barrier Against Ignorance – Today’s Quote

Bigotry is the disease of ignorance, of morbid minds; enthusiasm of the free and buoyant.  Education and free discussion are the antidotes of both.  We are destined to be a barrier against the returns of ignorance and barbarism.

President Thomas Jefferson

Ignorant People with Impressive Degrees – Today’s Quote

Someone summarized Barack Obama in three words — “educated,” “smart” and “ignorant.” Unfortunately, those same three words would describe all too many of the people who come out of our most prestigious colleges and universities today.

President Obama seems completely unaware of how many of the policies he is trying to impose have been tried before, in many times and places around the world, and have failed time and again. Economic equality?  That was tried in the 19th century, in communities set up by Robert Owen, the man who coined the term “socialism.”  Those communities all collapsed.

It was tried even earlier, in 18th century Georgia, when that was a British colony. People in Georgia ended up fleeing to other colonies, as many other people would vote with their feet in the 20th century, by fleeing many other societies around the world that were established in the name of economic equality.

But who reads history these days?  Moreover, those parts of history that would undermine the vision of the left — which prevails in our education system from elementary school to postgraduate study — are not likely to get much attention.

The net results are bright people, with impressive degrees, who have been told for years how brilliant they are, but who are often ignorant of facts that might cause them to question what they have been indoctrinated with in schools and colleges.

Andrew’s Note:  Bright but ignorant people with impressive degrees will be the ruin of us if we aren’t careful…

Preparedness, Labor and Learning – Today’s Quote

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

Former Secretary of State, National Security Adviser and General (RET) Colin Powell

 

Hitler On The Young – Today’s Quote

He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.

German Chancellor Adolf Hitler

Andrew’s Note:  Don’t underestimate how much the international socialists have learned from the national socialists (NAZI’s).

Tests & Lessons – Today’s Quote

In school you get the lesson and then take the test… In life you take the test and then get the lesson.

Doomed to Repeat – Today’s Quote

The study of history is a powerful antidote to contemporary arrogance.  It is humbling to discover how many of our glib assumptions, which seem to us novel and plausible, have been tested before, not once but many times and in innumerable guises; and discovered to be, at great human cost, wholly false.

Paul Johnson
