Liberals/progressives are by nature an unhappy bunch. They spend their lives “worrying” what other people are doing or thinking. This “worry” goads them into countless hours of contemplation and sometimes, actions concerning just how to assuage their concerns by running other peoples lives. No where is this more evident than in the field of public education.
A great insight to this is Democratic Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s 1993 treatise “Defining Deviancy Down.” In this work he postulates that some behaviors, once considered improper or unacceptable in polite society are now being normalized. He furthers his analysis by adding the fact that many once widely accepted as normal behaviors are subtly being transformed into unconscionable acts of deviancy. Perhaps the subtitle of this valuable work explains his thesis better than I have so far, “How We’ve Become Accustomed To Alarming Levels Of Crime And Destructive Behavior.” An excellent summation of the results of liberal intentions indeed.
The tragic effects of such efforts in society are to numerous to mention in their entirety. Consider the near absolute indifference to biased judges refusing to recuse themselves from cases they should never be presiding over (thus creating out of thin air the constitutional concept of gay marriage), the tolerance/acceptance of so called sanctuary cities (magnets for welfare abuse and crime) or the imposition of the intellectually vacant concept of multiculturalism (the demand that every society/culture is seen to be of equal value).
In their never ending quest to feel better about themselves by dominating others liberals have no qualms about these and numerous other deviant behaviors. The see no problem with Hillary Clinton placing top secret information on a readily hackable server in clear violation of a law that has been enforced on others.
They have no issue with a well documented serial abuser of women, and credibly accused of being a rapist, one William Jefferson Blythe Clinton running for the highest office in the land but go apoplectic when a republican seeking the same office talked about grabbing women by their privates eleven years ago.
A republican senator accused of soliciting gay sex is the epitome of evil (which opens up another panoply of contradictions but that is another article) while Anthony Weiners apparently uncontrollable tendency to send pictures of his “last name” to underage girls qualifies him to run for pubic, I mean public, office.
Perhaps the most tragic result of all is the conversion by liberals of the most heinous criminals into victims of society. The poor rapist must be excused because the prom queen rebuffed his advances twenty years ago. The poor inner city rioter must be excused because my white privilege allows me to work 60-80 hours a week to support my family and his. The sad illegal alien murderer must be forgiven because some hundred years ago Mexico lost a war with America. The white kid with the the outstanding grades must surrender his place at certain ivy league colleges so the minority who can barely read or write will not suffer damage to his precious self esteem. Liberals reading this are shaking their head in amazement that I, an evil conservative, understand so well the less fortunate. Normal people reading this are, and should be, infuriated.
These are appalling representations of liberal/progressive ideology. Yet they are acceptable, or at least tolerable, to a vast number of Americans.
Without a doubt, Americans have been indoctrinated to be dangerously more permissive of ideas and actions that would have been intolerable even in my parents generation. This indoctrination occurs at many levels but the most corrosive is in the public education system. Liberals/progressives have spent the last sixty years using the public education system to train Americans to feel guilty for accepting traditional time tested and reality approved moral, or for that matter any, standards.
In some ways the liberal/progressive version of public education has a lot in common with the ISIS version of public education. Both seek to divide children from their parents, physically, spiritually and intellectually, using indoctrination and propaganda (common core, new civics anyone?). Both seek to destroy moral and just ideas. Both seek to dominate. Neither tolerates any criticism no matter how valid. The NEA and ISIS seek to create a society unable to critically think for itself. Like ISIS, liberals need illiterate, easily lead, intellectual zombies.
Like American liberals, ISIS gets its child victims early. As young as four years old according to the latest release of the “Cubs of the Caliphate” video series. This sickening edition appeared on ISIS social media channels recently. It shows footage of a 4 year old little boy being handed a gun and executing a chained up prisoner. All during the murder, he shot the man five times, the child is shouting, “Allahu akbar!”
Another child, approximately ten years old, uses a knife to behead a captive.
In the sick video’s final scene another child killer slashes a prisoners throat then leaves the knife planted in his victim’s back.
Doubtlessly these children will end up as suicide bombers somewhere.
This is the same mindset that nourishes black rioters shouting black lives matter as they steal everything they can get their hands on. This is the same mindset that allows someone to assassinate police officers without remorse. This is the same suppression of humanity demanded by liberals that allows blacks to enjoy brutally assaulting and torturing a white handicapped person. Truly, liberal/progressives have a lot to answer for.
Stripped of their flowery phrases, ivy league degrees and faux concern over “the children”, the distance between ISIS and NEA approved educational philosophies can be measured in millimeters. The predictable results of those philosophies are closing towards each other with sickening swiftness.
Anyone who says there is no comparison between ISIS approved education and the liberal version of today’s American public education system can be quickly rebuked with two words.
