Arizona community college must pay $155,000 to professor it forced to apologize for criticizing Islam

A slight pause on American academia’s out-of-control-freight-train rush to submit to Sharia. But the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is still flogging this case in court, hoping to use it to destroy the freedom of speech and criminalize criticism of Islam.

Arizona community college to pay $155K settlement for directing professor to apologize for Islamic terrorism quiz question

by Katlyn Patton, FIRE, April 13, 2021:

Maricopa County Community College District will pay professor Nicholas Damask $155,000 in exchange for his agreement not to sue district personnel, who last year violated his expressive rights in an attempt to quell criticism of his quiz questions on social media. The district also pledged to strengthen its commitment to academic freedom.

Damask, who teaches political science at Scottsdale Community College, came under fire on social media last May after a student complained that quiz questions in Damask’s world politics course were offensive to the student’s religious beliefs. Damask said the college suggested it would require him to meet with an Islamic religious leader to review the content of his course because a student complained that three of Damask’s quiz questions about Islamic terrorism were “in distaste of Islam.”

In response, the college directed Damask to issue an apology — pre-written for him by a communications staff member — and implied that he would be investigated. The college ultimately backed down after an urgent letter from FIRE.

Now, the district is finally paying for SCC’s unconstitutional knee-jerk reaction to online criticism….

lawsuit brought by the Council on American-Islamic Relations remains pending in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. (A district court judge dismissed the lawsuit in August for failure to state a claim, and CAIR appealed.)…

Public Kindergarten Enrollment is Plummeting—Here’s Why That’s a Good Thing

Children not enrolled in public kindergarten are not ‘missing.’ Their parents know exactly where they are.


Public school enrollment has consistently declined across most states this academic year, and there are new signs that the trend will continue this fall. On Thursday, New York City’s education department reported that kindergarten applications for the 2021/2022 school year dropped 12 percent, from 63,000 to under 55,500 applications.

Overall New York City kindergarten enrollment was down 9 percent this year and down 4 percent districtwide. Nationwide, an NPR poll found that public school kindergarten enrollment was down an average of 16 percent this academic year, and public pre-kindergarten enrollment fell substantially as well.

The further drop in fall public kindergarten enrollment applications in New York City suggests that this is more than a temporary pandemic response. Parents may be indefinitely pulling their kids from public schools, at least in some large districts where a return to full-time, in-person schooling has been elusive.

Headlines have emerged to suggest that parents choosing not to enroll their children in public pre-kindergarten or kindergarten programs this year and next are endangering their children’s academic outlook.

“These drops raise serious concerns for children’s early learning,” researchers wrote at the Brookings Institution in February. “These early-grade enrollment drops are troubling given the importance of early learning experiences for children’s school readiness.”

Calling the young children who are not currently enrolled in public schools “missing children,” the Brookings writers advocate for taxpayer-funded summer programming and heavy investments in public schooling to “assess the wide-ranging developmental needs of children and to target a host of needed supports” resulting from delayed or disrupted early schooling.

These children may be “missing” from public schools, but they are hardly “missing children.”

Many of the parents who have chosen to avoid enrolling their children in public pre-K or kindergarten programs have either delayed their child’s formal school entry or placed them in private schools that have been more likely to be open for in-person learning than district schools. Others have created pandemic learning pods with nearby families. Millions of parents decided to homeschool their kids this year, especially black families and those with lower incomes.

The real tragedy over the past year has not been that children are not in school, but that lockdowns and other pandemic policies have disconnected them from their larger communities, activities, peers, and extended family, leading to rising incidences of youth depression, deteriorating childhood mental health, and poor physical health through juvenile weight gain from inactivity. Lifting restrictive public health policies will improve children’s well-being, whether or not they attend a conventional school.

The push toward early school attendance has been so vigorous in recent years that many now think it’s a calamity if young children aren’t enrolled in a formal school setting. Democrats, in particular, have long embraced expanding taxpayer-funded, universal pre-kindergarten programs, including President Biden whose proposed multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure spending plan would funnel billions of taxpayer dollars toward these efforts.

As I wrote in The Wall Street Journal in 2019 encouraging parents to delay or forgo formal schooling for their children: “The trend over the past two decades has been toward more time in school, beginning at earlier ages and with an increased focus on academics. Schooling consumes more of childhood than ever, yet the benefits of early schooling remain unclear.”

Indeed, the Brookings Institution warned back in 2017 that the often-cited studies showing positive gains from pre-K programs are inadequate and that more in-depth studies of the lasting impact of public pre-K programs, including the Head Start Impact study and the Tennessee Voluntary Pre-K study, reveal that any short-term benefits were gone by the end of kindergarten.

More alarming, by third grade the academic performance of children in the Tennessee Pre-K program actually lagged behind the control group of children who did not participate in the program. Similarly troubling, by third grade the children in the Head Start program were found by teachers to have more behavioral and emotional issues than the control group of children who did not attend the program.

At worst, early school enrollment could be harmful to children’s immediate and long-term well-being. A 2008 longitudinal study concluded that “early school entry was associated with less educational attainment, worse midlife adjustment, and most importantly, increased mortality risk.”

A 2018 study in the New England Journal of Medicine found additional disturbing results of early school enrollment. In the study, researchers at Harvard Medical School discovered that, in states with a September 1 five-year-old kindergarten enrollment cut-off date, children who were born in August were 34 percent more likely to be diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), than their same-grade, but nearly six-year-old, peers who were born in September.

As every parent knows, a year can make a big difference in early childhood development. Putting young children into academically-focused schooling environments before they are developmentally ready can cause them to be misdiagnosed with, and even medicated for, learning and behavioral issues that might not appear if they enrolled in school later.

As the recent Brookings Institution article suggests, there is sure to be a strong push in the coming months to invest heavily in the “missing children” whose parents have delayed formal school entry or opted for private options during the pandemic response. This rhetoric, along with ongoing progressive advocacy for universal, taxpayer-funded prekindergarten programs, will attempt to persuade the public that early schooling is crucial for childhood and societal well-being and that “missing children” need particular help.

Don’t believe it.

Children who do not enroll in public pre-K or kindergarten programs are not “missing.” Their parents know exactly where they are. These parents are choosing to delay formal school entry, or they are selecting private education or homeschooling options for their children.

Given that the impact of early childhood public schooling programs is lackluster at best, and that delayed school entry may have positive results, many of these allegedly “missing children” may actually outperform their peers in the years to come. Rather than lamenting another academic year of lower public school enrollment, we should support the parents who are reassuming control over their children’s education from government bureaucrats and teachers unions, and applaud them for choosing alternatives to an assigned district school.

New Census Data Show Homeschooling Tripled During the Pandemic—And One Key Group is Driving the Surge

Once they experience the full freedom and flexibility of homeschooling, many parents and children won’t ever want to return to a coercive classroom.


My daughter had a friend over this week whose parents just took her out of public school for homeschooling, and my neighbor recently unenrolled her child from public school to homeschool for the rest of the academic year. These families are much more than local anecdotes—they are representative of a national trend.

New Census Bureau data show that 11.1 percent of K-12 students are now being independently homeschooled. This is a large uptick from 5.4 percent at the start of the school shutdowns last spring, and 3.3 percent in the years preceding the pandemic.

These new homeschooling families are also reflective of surging homeschooling numbers in certain parts of the country. Here in the Boston-Cambridge-Newton, MA-NH area designated by the Census, homeschooling increased from 0.9 percent last April-May to 8.9 percent in September-October. In Massachusetts more generally, the homeschooling rate soared from 1.5 percent in the spring of 2020 to 12.1 percent last fall.

In its Household Pulse Survey, the Census Bureau counted homeschoolers as students whose parents had officially removed them from a school or never enrolled them to begin with. This distinguishes independent homeschoolers from the millions of students doing home-based remote schooling during the pandemic response.

In addition to massive overall growth in homeschooling, the survey results also revealed increasing homeschooling rates across all races and ethnicities.

While the homeschooling population has become more demographically diverse over the past decade, the Census Bureau found that the number of black homeschoolers increased nearly fivefold between spring and fall of 2020, from 3.3 percent to 16.1 percent. This black homeschooling rate is slightly higher than the approximately 15 percent of black students in the overall K-12 public school population.

The new Census data confirm what previous surveys have shown while also suggesting a tripling of the homeschooling population from its pre-pandemic levels.

In August, Gallup reported that 10 percent of families expected to homeschool their children this academic year. And in November, Education Week estimated the number of current homeschoolers at nine percent. Prior to the pandemic, approximately 1.7 million students were homeschooled, according to the most recent federal data from 2016. The Census data now puts that number at over 5 million homeschooled students, which is comparable to the number of K-12 students typically enrolled in private schools.

This year’s new homeschoolers are also more likely to come from lower socioeconomic backgrounds. The Education Week survey last fall found that more lower-income families were choosing homeschooling during the pandemic response than higher-income families, challenging the myth that homeschooling families are more affluent than others. The New York Times pointed out this myth in July, explaining that “the population of home-schoolers — before the pandemic — was less affluent than average.”

Despite this evidence to the contrary, critics continue to assert that it’s affluent parents who are pulling their children from school for homeschooling, or gathering together with other families to create “learning pods.” These pods emerged last summer, as parents sought creative ways to provide safe social interaction for their children. Pods created an engaging learning environment that included parents rotating homes and taking turns teaching, or collaborating to hire an educator to facilitate a curriculum.

A modern twist on time-honored homeschool co-ops, learning pods can be a low-cost schooling alternative for many families.

For Allison Fried in Fairfax, Virginia the private homeschooling learning pod she organized in her home’s basement with five other families has been “amazing”—and much less expensive than her child’s previous preschool.

“The cost per family and what we would be paying out of pocket was literally 50% of what we were paying the year before for private preschool,” she recently told Marketplace. Her pod costs $1,000 a month per family for the teacher, learning supplies, and cleaning.

These homeschooling learning pods are an innovative, parent-driven response to pandemic policies and school closures. They are an ideal example of spontaneous, decentralized, free-market education solutions that meet current demand. They involve free people coming together in a process of voluntary association and exchange to provide value that benefits everyone involved in the arrangement.

Exasperatingly, many states were quick to slap on regulations that curtailed or prevented these small enterprises. Some states required the pods to be registered with government officials and limited their size and scope. Some required pods to be fully licensed as daycare providers. Others forbade pods from collecting fees.

Policymakers are starting to push back against these regulations. In Pennsylvania, a comprehensive school choice bill is making its way to the legislature that, among other things, protects learning pods throughout the state. Specifically, the bill would “exempt Learning Pods from state, local, and district regulatory activity,” and make certain that parents and children who participate in learning pods “are not subject to undue surveillance, reporting, regulatory demands or harassment.”

“Parents will go to great lengths to get their children the best education possible,” says Colleen Hroncich, a senior policy analyst at the Commonwealth Foundation in Pennsylvania. “With around 86% of Pennsylvania districts still hybrid or fully remote, learning pods have been a life saver for many families. Parents should not need permission from the state to get together to improve their children’s academic or social experiences.”

Learning pods and other examples of education entrepreneurship should be cheered and championed. We should encourage more visionary parents and educators to design new learning models that provide alternatives to our entrenched and outdated government-controlled education system. When free from the fetters of government oversight and regulation and guided by the free market, these innovators will build educational solutions that are better, cheaper, more creative, more personalized, and more successful than coercive government schooling.

FEE’s founder, Leonard Read, predicted what would happen in a free market in education, with parents empowered to guide their children’s education and innovative entrepreneurs free to serve both parents and children. Writing in 1964, before the rise of the modern homeschooling movement, Read said:

“While one cannot know of the brilliant steps that would be taken by millions of education-conscious parents were they and not the government to have the educational responsibility, one can imagine the great variety of cooperative and private enterprises that would emerge. There would be thousands of private schools, large and small, not necessarily unlike some of the ones we now have. There would be tutoring arrangements of a variety and ingenuity impossible to foresee. No doubt there would be corporate and charitably financed institutions of chain store dimensions, dispensing reading, writing, and arithmetic at bargain prices. There would be competition, which is cooperation’s most useful tool! There would be a parental alertness as to what the market would have to offer. There would be a keen, active, parental responsibility for their children’s and their own educational growth.”

Today’s learning pods and diverse homeschooling approaches show how such an uplifting vision could come true, especially if the government would get out of the way.

Rising homeschooling rates and innovative learning models have been bright spots in an otherwise bleak year.

Parents and educators responded to school shutdowns and related pandemic policies with individual effort and ingenuity. With many schools still closed this spring, and the strong probability that remote schooling will continue into next fall in many districts, homeschooling rates are likely to remain high. Once they experience the full freedom and flexibility of homeschooling, many parents and children won’t ever want to return to a coercive classroom.

Are Schools The Beacon of the Destruction of America?

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes, the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical.”   – Thomas Jefferson


It is very difficult to understand the deep roots of communism in our Florida schools because the “educators” are very careful not to use word communism.  The American approach to education uses the scientific method of deductive reasoning where by many theories are tried until the unknown outcome emerges.  The communist approach uses the Pavlov/Skinner method whereby the desired outcome is known and theory is designed to fit the outcome.  This process is called Outcome Based Education (OBE)  aka Mastery Learning aka Training.  We see this communist method used in Critical Race Theory, 1619 project and BLM curricula where the outcome must be: America is racist and “Whiteness” is the problem.

All of America’s problems today can be traced back to the 45 Goals of Communism read into the Congressional Record on Jan 10, 1963. by Rep Herlong (D-FL).  The purpose of this reading was to serve as a reference and reminder showing the intent of the communists in their constant quest to transform America into a communist country.   The Goals are from Cleon Skousen, researcher and author of “The Naked Communist.”  These goals have been adopted by the Democrat Party and have been implemented across America.  Goals 17-32 are a direct assault on American history, values, culture and religion using the public school system as the transmitter of this propaganda. Communist Goals – 1963 Congressional Record.

The purpose of this shift to communism was to ensure an underclass.  Communists will  not tolerate competition and free thinking. All products, distribution, and activity must belong to the state. This is accomplished in the name of fairness.  “Dumbing” the population is the objective.   In the 1989, education was changed from educating students for life to training students to work, from individualism to collectivism, from fact based to feelings and emotions. Nov 2, 1989 Governor Association on Education – Gov Bill Clinton presiding, GWH Bush 41 President a presentation was given by Shirley McCune from the McRel Foundation.  Shirley believed that students were human capital and must only be trained to work. Individual life in not important only the group matters.

Whistleblower, Charlotte Iserbyt documented her findings when she was Senior Policy Analyst under President Reagan and wrote about the process to be used to accomplish this goal called Outcome Based Education, aka Mastery Learning.

The implementation of these goals in Florida schools is in violation of Florida Statute 876.01.

Communism forces humans to be the same which is totally against natural human instincts. Sameness eliminates natural instincts of curiosity, innovation and exploration.  Humans are reduced to objects.

Will we soon follow the Nazi method of Tattooing numbers on their captives to track them. FYI: The tattoo registry was created and tracked by IBM.

Nameless, faceless individuals become property to be used and abused.   The group not the individual is dominant.  When individual destiny is chosen by the government, humans need a replacement to fill the need to feel important.  Drugs, tattoos, piercing, drinking, and sex are used for replacement. How do you normalize this behavior – school, (Goal #17, 26,27)?   Instead of sex ed being focused on hygiene and biology, and loving relationships,  texts now teach explicitly how to have sex – with any age person or any gender. If used outside of school, these books and methods would be considered pornography.

The Obama administration through SOE Duncan gave grants to local media centers to include pop culture.  Instead of including Pop Culture, Classics were replaced by POP Culture pornography which can be viewed by any age student.  Today the communists proudly proclaim “WAP” by Cardi B,  performed at the Grammy’s is the Best song of 2020.

In 2018, the Florida Citizens Alliance conducted a review of this objectionable  material which did nothing more than “normalize” inappropriate sexual activity under the guise of “Sex-Ed” in violation of Florida Statutes.

  • English Language Arts
    • Pornography (violations of 847.012)
    • FL DOE Sunshine Reader List criteria (effectively bans classical literature)
  • Social Studies
    • Reconstructed History (violations of FS1003.42)
    • Religious Indoctrination (promotes Islam vs. Christianity FS 1002.206)
    • Political Indoctrination (violates FS 1006.31 factual, balanced and objective)Science (2017-2018 current adoption cycle–work in progress)

By shifting the focus of the 3 R’s, learning facts, individual responsibility, and deductive reasoning (the scientific method)   to sight,  feelings, collectivism, and outcome based responses students are ill prepared for the challenges life demands.  Due to the “grading on a curve” system adopted by many Departments of education, parents are often fooled by the letter grade their district receives.  Depending on the curve,districts can receive an “A” grade when only 55% of the students are proficient in reading or math.  Graduating students now enter college or the work place needing remediation and are often unable to follow simple directions. Mediocrity is evident throughout government and business decisions. When everything in your life is preplanned by someone else the human desire to be important, or successful becomes so frustrating that students often turn  to drugs, sex or suicide.    Students now trained to fit a particular job become apathetic while learning to shine by having sex any place, any time, with anyone.    Enough sexual indoctrination will start a dangerous trend of sexual addiction and lead to more rape and sexual abuse.

The man accused of killing eight people at three Atlanta-area spas on Tuesday allegedly confessed to the slayings and told police he has a sexual addiction.

As Communist Goals #17,25,26 are practiced and sex is “normalized” in school will sex addiction become the new excuse for horrific behavior?

When student feel their lives have no purpose, because they can’t control their own destiny, they feel hopeless and must replace that feeling with something.  Because factual information aka truth is missing, and students are no longer “educated” to be able to make common sense decisions they turn on their emotions. Students are taught to be victims and focus their anger visually and emotionally on race. These curricula changes encourage students to blame someone else for their plight while turning to school sanctioned sex and hatred. Sex “feels” good, drugs “feel” good and brilliant minds are hopelessly lost.  The destruction of American values through culture shifts  from Freedom and Liberty as laid out in the US Constitution, and through the teaching of morality by belief in family, G-d and Country are initiated. By knowing history we learn that if not stopped, the transformation of America to hatred, rioting, racism, drugs and sex will follow.   We have the right statutes in Florida to put a stop to the degradation. I support Gov DeSantis and his effort to implement them.

Florida Republican Rep. Says Gov. DeSantis Is Right To Ban Critical Race Theory From Schools

Republican Florida Rep. Byron Donalds reaffirmed his support for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ critical race theory ban from the state’s new civics curriculum.

“There’s no room in our classrooms for critical race theory. Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money,” DeSantis said during a press conference this week.

“Governor DeSantis is absolutely correct,” Donalds said Friday on “Fox News Primetime.”

“Yes, we have dark spots in our history. I’m the first to acknowledge that, but we also have to understand that our country is the great story of redemption in world history,” Donalds said. “We are a far better country than we were 100 years ago, 200 years ago. And, we need to embrace our history, but also understand and embrace the country we are today and the country we continue to become every single year going forward. So I applaud the governor and his decision. We need to see more of that in the other 49 states.”

“[Critical Race Theory] underpins identity politics, an ongoing effort to reimagine the United States as a nation riven by groups, each with specific claims on victimization,” the Heritage Foundation said in December.

DeSantis said Florida will instead focus on an “actual, solid, true curriculum and we will be a leader in the development and implementation of a world-class civics education,” Fox News reported.

DeSantis pledged to spend $106 million to support civics education in Florida after receiving additional funding from President Biden’s coronavirus stimulus package that was signed into law last week, according to Fox News.

DeSantis slams critical race theory and says it will have no place in Florida classrooms: ‘Not worth one red cent’

By Washington Examiner, March 17, 2021

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis slammed critical race theory and pledged there is no room in his state’s classrooms for the controversial curriculum.

“There’s no room in our classrooms for things like critical race theory,” the Florida Republican said Wednesday. “Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money.”

DeSantis pledged that Florida’s curriculum will “expressly exclude” the teaching.

DeSantis also said he is proposing a $3,000 bonus for Florida teachers who complete a civics education program that focuses on “foundational concepts” rather than the critical race theory that has been spreading nationwide.

The critical race theory movement, energized by the New York Times’s recent 1619 Project, deviates from a traditional curriculum and teaches that racism is embedded in the founding of the United States.

Earlier this year, government employees in San Diego County, California, were forced to take part in critical race theory training, including a lecture stating that only white people are capable of being racist.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention moved forward last fall with critical race theory training despite an executive order from former President Donald Trump instructing government agencies to halt the practice.

“The President has directed me to ensure that Federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions,” former Office of Management and Budget Director Russell Vought said about the executive order at the time, adding that “these types of ‘trainings’ not only run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception, but they also engender division and resentment within the Federal workforce.”

Will California Schools Mandate Pagan Religion?

In California schools, it would seem that Jesus is out, but worshiping human-sacrifice-requiring Aztec deities may soon be in.

In a 1996 book I wrote with D. James Kennedy, The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail, which dealt with today’s anti-Christian bias, we noted the following: “San Jose, California. City officials built a statue of the Aztec god, Quetzalcoatl, costing taxpayers half a million dollars. The mayor says the Aztec religion possessed ‘those elements that seek to elevate the human consciousness to a higher plane.’”

After observing the story, we offered this commentary, “The irony is that the Aztec religion routinely engaged in human sacrifice. Here is a statue built to honor the god of human sacrifice—the worship of whom cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of human beings. Yet the same city ruled that there is no room for a manger with baby Jesus in it. Jesus, whose teachings and followers have banished human sacrifice from every corner of this world, is out. A god demanding human sacrifice is in.”

Here we are a quarter of a century later, and now comes a story out of California about a proposed plan to promote such teaching, accompanied by ritual Aztec chanting, in the public schools there. Once the teachers’ union says the schools can open, of course.

Writing for the city-journal.com (3/10/21) Christopher F. Rufo notes: “Next week, the California Department of Education will vote on a new statewide ethnic studies curriculum that advocates for the ‘decolonization’ of American society and elevates Aztec religious symbolism—all in the service of a left-wing political ideology.”

If this passes, it could impact “10,000 public schools serving a total of 6 million students.” Rufo notes that this curriculum was developed by a Marxist and is part of the “pedagogy of the oppressed.”

The chanting, of course, means that the children would be involved in not just learning about the deities, but in actually worshiping them.

Rufo opines, “The chants have a clear implication: the displacement of the Christian god [sic], which is said to be an extension of white supremacist oppression, and the restoration of the indigenous gods to their rightful place in the social justice cosmology. It is, in a philosophical sense, a revenge of the gods.”

In the name of “the separation of church and state”—words not found in our Constitution—any remnant of our nation’s Judeo-Christian tradition seems to find no place in our public schools. But chanting to pagan deities is fine with the left.

The first Congress under the Constitution wrote the First Amendment in 1791. And the first liberty they guaranteed—before freedom of speech, of the press, or of assembly—was the freedom of religion. They wanted to make sure that there would be no national church at the federal level, forcing people of other denominations to conform. They also wanted to make sure the government would not restrict the free exercise of religion.

The First Amendment later was twisted to mean we should have a strict “separation of church and state”—not allowing any reference to God in the public arena.

That same Congress that gave us the First Amendment passed a law called The Northwest Ordinance, spelling out an expectation for territories that became future states, saying, “Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary for good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.”

It is historically undeniable that when they said, “religion,” they meant Christianity (in one form or another). And when they said, “morality,” it was Biblical morality.

Note the priority of the Congress as to schools. Teach them about God, morality, knowledge.

How different is the anti-Christian curriculum proposed in California.

Those Aztec deities demanded violence. Robert Ripley of “Believe It or Not” fame writes about a carved circular stone found in the National Museum in Mexico City, where the human victims were slaughtered in Aztec worship: “The prisoners, who for several years had been held in reserve for this festival, were ranged in files forming a procession nearly two miles long. This long line slowly walked to their death marking time to the shrieks of the dying as they were bent naked on this stone and their hearts torn from their bodies. It required four days to finish the slaughter.” (Wonder Book of Facts, 1957).

In contrast, Jesus—who said, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”—offered Himself as the sacrificial “Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” But today, California educators apparently prefer pagan deities that demand human sacrifice for worship. Since recognition of God has been expelled in our public schools, too many of our learning centers have become secular wastelands. In California, it could get even worse.

Kentucky’s Berea College Hosts Event Calling ‘Trumpism’ a Form of Terrorism

The left’s effort to demonize and criminalize all opposition to its sinister agenda is advancing rapidly, and so the news out of Kentucky’s Berea College on Friday, as outrageous as it was, came as no surprise. Fox News reported that Berea “is scheduled to host an event critical of Donald Trump and associating the former president and ‘white citizenship’ with terrorism.” But would Berea or other colleges and universities like it ever dream of holding an event about actual terrorists, specifically Islamic jihadis? Not on your life!

“A flyer obtained by Young America’s Foundation (YAF),” Fox continued, “describes the event as a way to ‘resituate Trumpism and white citizenship as forms of white terrorism enacted against the majority of people living within the borders of the U.S. and beyond.’”

The event is set for this coming Wednesday. In these days of stifling Covid orthodoxy, it will, of course, take place not in person, but over Zoom. The flyer announcing the event reads like a parody of today’s campus intellectual fads and shibboleths: “The Women’s and Gender Non-Conforming Center [I bet you wish you had one of those on your campus] presents GENDER TALK…White Citizenship as Terrorism: Make America Great Again, Again.” The event is “co-sponsored by Law, Ethics, and Society,” an organization that likely has little to with actual law, ethics, or anything that would strengthen a society.

The flyer, according to Fox, “features images of protesters carrying tiki torches at the racially charged Charlottesville, Virginia, protests at the beginning of Trump’s presidency.” It states:

Despite calls for multiculturalism and color-blindness, segments of white America mourn their so-called loss of privilege, consistently begging to return to the nostalgic past in which their esteemed value as white citizens went unquestioned. Trump’s “Make America Great Again” appears to follow suit by offering a seemingly benign promise to return America to a previously “great” past. But the offer to “Make America Great Again, Again,” requires we refocus on how the last four years of daily tweets and administrative actions redefine whiteness. If terrorism is defined as the use of violence and threats to create a state of fear towards particular communities and identities, then this is what “Trumpism” is at its core.

As ridiculous and groundless as all that is, as rooted in leftist fantasy about Trump’s presidency being somehow “white supremacist,” Berea College officials were not embarrassed, as they should have been, when asked about this event. On the contrary, they defended it, as any fascist smear merchant would, issuing a statement that said: “To some, the provocative title of the event implies that Berea is not a welcoming place for individuals with differing political views.” More than “implies,” you fascists.

“That is not true,” the Berea statement insisted:

At Berea, we strive to live out our motto: God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth. Berea accepts students of all faiths (or none at all), religious beliefs, ethnicities and political leanings, creating a diverse environment that encourages acceptance, respect and even appreciation across our differences. We encourage open dialog on difficult topics. Racism and white nationalism have been topics of great debate over the past five years. The event planned for next week seeks to confront aspects of the political spectrum that relate to the difficult topic of race in America. While that may cause discomfort, it is a valid and important conversation in this time of political and racial division. It is our hope that these types of conversations will occur across the country. Open, honest dialogue is essential to understanding racism and moving toward an anti-racist society.

Unless you’re a Trump supporter, that is.

Meanwhile, it is a 100% certainty, not 99%, but 100%, that Berea College administrators and professors would recoil in horror at the prospect of hosting an event focusing on the threat of jihad violence and Sharia oppression. In the extraordinarily unlikely off-chance that such an event were scheduled, it would be inundated with charges of “Islamophobia” and “racism” to the extent that most students would not attend, for fear of the social stigma attached to going.

But this? Demonizing and smearing half the American electorate? That’s just fine. And of course it plays right into the agenda of the political and media elites, who have embarked upon a clear initiative to defame all supporters of the former president as “extremists,” as they did previously with foes of jihad terror and Sharia injustice, and destroy them accordingly. The U.S. is entering an extremely dark period, but it has been a long time in the offing. And it has gotten dark early at Berea College.

TENNESSEE: Somali Students Ripped-Off College to the Tune of $114,000

Just so you know that Minnesota isn’t the only place in America where refugee contractors and the US State Department salted a Somali population, Tennessee got them too!

This is the kind of story I was thinking about when I first began this blog!

To counter the ‘new American’ fluff stories I wanted to show that some of those migrants, supposedly simply “looking for a better life,” are actually getting a better life at great expense to us, both financially and culturally.

Lately I’ve been distracted by so much news involving political frauds and crooks, so it’s good to have a reminder of why this blog came into being.

From The Tennessee Conservative (hat tip: Gary):

Pair of Middle Tennessee Students Accused Of Stealing $114,000 From University

Two Middle Tennessee State University students have been charged with stealing more than $114,000 from the university.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation announced Wednesday that Mohamed Gure and Mohamed Osman were indicted by a Rutherford County grand jury for fraudulently obtaining student activity fee payments from the university over a three-year period.

The Tennessee comptroller’s office, which helped TBI with the investigation, said Gure and Osman stole $114,145 between November 2017 and November 2020.

Gure was charged with one count of theft over $60,000, one count of theft over $10,000, 30 counts of forgery and two counts of criminal simulation. Osman was charged with one count of theft over $60,000, 28 counts of forgery and two counts of criminal simulation.

The comptroller’s office said Gure and Osman were presidents of MTSU’s Somali Students Association when they submitted at least 85 false invoices for reimbursements totaling $82,200 of student activity fee funds. Many of the invoices were for payments to nonexistent vendors, the comptroller’s office said.

[….]

“MTSU should ensure its Student Organizations and Service Office carefully reviews supporting documentation before reimbursing student organizations,” Comptroller Jason Mumpower said in a statement. “Our investigators also noted several instances in which MTSU officials were not following their own guidance when processing reimbursements.”

Gure and Osman were arrested and booked Tuesday into the Rutherford County Jail. Gure’s bond was set at $60,000, and Osmon’s bond was set at $50,000.

Middle Tennessee State University is located in Murfreesboro, 33 miles from Nashville. The Somali Student Association facebook page is here.

Did any of you have any idea that public colleges (funded by taxpayers!) were shelling out this kind of money for student organizations?

I have to say that some of these ‘new Americans’ are clever scammers, but not quite clever enough this time!

KENTUCKY: Berea College Hosting Event Describing ‘White Citizenship’ and ‘Trumpism’ as Terrorism

Meanwhile, it is a 100% certainty, not 99%, but 100%, that Berea College administrators and professors would recoil in horror at the prospect of hosting an event focusing on the threat of jihad violence and Sharia oppression. In the extraordinarily unlikely off-chance that such an event were scheduled, it would be inundated with charges of “Islamophobia” and “racism” to the extent that most students would not attend, for fear of the social stigma attached to going.

The U.S. is entering an extremely dark period, but it has been a long time in the offing.

“Kentucky college hosting event describing ‘white citizenship’ and ‘Trumpism’ as terrorism,”

by Sam Dorman, Fox News, March 12, 2021:

A Kentucky college is scheduled to host an event critical of Donald Trump and associating the former president and “white citizenship” with terrorism.

A flyer obtained by Young America’s Foundation (YAF) describes the event as a way to “resituate Trumpism and white citizenship as forms of white terrorism enacted against the majority of people living within the borders of the U.S. and beyond.”

Titled “White citizenship as terrorism: Make America Great Again, Again,” the event is set to take place on March 17 via Zoom, according to a page on Berea College’s website. The Women’s and Non-Gender Non-Conforming Center is sponsoring the session with the Law, Ethics, and Society at the college.

YAF said it obtained the flyer through its Campus Bias Tip Line. It features images of protesters carrying tiki torches at the racially charged Charlottesville, Virginia, protests at the beginning of Trump’s presidency.

The flyer also takes a critical approach to the “Make America Great Again” slogan. “Despite calls for multiculturalism and color-blindness, segments of white America mourn their so-called loss of privilege, consistently begging to return to the nostalgic past in which their esteemed value as white citizens went unquestioned,” it reads.

“Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ appears to follow suit by offering a seemingly benign promise to return America to a previously ‘great’ past. But the offer to ‘Make America Great Again, Again,’ requires we refocus on how the last four years of daily tweets and administrative actions redefine whiteness. If terrorism is defined as the use of violence and threats to create a state of fear towards particular communities and identities, then this is what ‘Trumpism’ is at its core.”

Berea defended the event in a statement to Fox News Thursday.

“To some, the provocative title of the event implies that Berea is not a welcoming place for individuals with differing political views,” a statement from the college read….

Columbia University Hosts 6 Different Commencements SEGREGATED BY RACE, Sexuality, Income Level

One Geller Reader reader points out,

‘Continuing with your report of the Biden DOE’s reversal of Trump’s determination that ‘racial affinity groups’ were a form of segregation, see this story on all the separate graduation ceremonies that Columbia Univ promotes. If anyone there had proposed something like this 25, 30 yrs ago, their job fitness would have been questioned: today, they are celebrated as ‘visionary’ – or something.”

Columbia University Hosts 6 Different Commencements Segregated By Race, Sexuality, Income Level

By Charlie Kirk, March 10, 2021:

Columbia University will offer six different graduation ceremonies segregated by race, sexuality and income level.

The University is describing them as “Multicultural Graduation Ceremonies.” In the last week of April, graduating students will be offered virtual ceremonies in six categories – Native American, “LGBTQIA+,” Asian, “Latinx,” black, and “First-generation and/or low income.”

The College Fix reports:

They cover graduates of Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, General Studies and Barnard College, its sibling women’s college. Students must register by March 21 to get their “multicultural graduation gift,” such as stoles, tassels and pins, and by March 31 to be listed as participants.

The virtual segregated ceremonies do not replace ceremonies for the whole Ivy League university and its individual schools, but rather provide “a more intimate setting for students and guests to gather, incorporate meaningful cultural traditions and celebrate the specific contributions and achievements of their communities,” the page says.

It’s not clear when Columbia first disclosed the segregated ceremonies. The earliest cached version of the page is from Friday night.

It was flagged the next day by Mercy Muroki, senior researcher at The Centre for Social Justice and graduate student in social policy at the University of Oxford.

Muroki who was clearly disappointed tweeted “Racially and sexually segregated graduation ceremonies. One of the ‘best’ universities in the world. If you want to know what going backwards looks like, this is it.”

VIDEO: Why Does Any Conservative Want their Kids in Public Schools?

[T]he new “education threat” is “a one-two punch that combines Alinskyite community organizing with woke education based on Critical Race Theory.” – Stanley Kurtz


I have been puzzled for months when I hear from just about any conservative media a demand to get kids back in school during this Chinese virus ‘crisis.’

Even our President Trump is demanding kids get back to public school.

Why does anyone with a passion to make America great again want their kids indoctrinated at the hands of Leftist teachers like the ones Stanley Kurtz informed Breitbart readers about recently?

Why isn’t every patriot homeschooling or finding an alternative school, perhaps a small Christian school if one absolutely can’t make homeschool work?

The Chinese virus has given all American parents the opportunity to escape the education system’s Leftist indoctrination, so make the break now!

Here is Stanley Kurtz telling Breitbart author Dr. Susan Berry what is on the horizon.

And, what a coincidence it involves Alinsky community organizing, reminding me to tell you (again) to read Alinsky so you know what it is all about and you will know how to fight back.

Stanley Kurtz: ‘Action Civics’ Curriculum Is ‘Alinskyite Community Organizing’ with Critical Race Theory

“One of the nation’s key researchers of the Common Core standards and the revised Advanced Placement U.S. History framework warns the proposed “action civics” curriculum will teach America’s students how to community organize for leftist causes with a woke education program based on Critical Race Theory.

Stanley Kurtz, senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, explained to Breitbart News the new “education threat” is “a one-two punch that combines Alinskyite community organizing with woke education based on Critical Race Theory.”

He observed that, in this new “action civics” framework, “teachers organize their students for demonstrations and lobbying on behalf of leftist causes.”  [That is exactly what Styron’s book is about.–ed]

“Action civics also lets students volunteer with leftist community organizations and participate in their advocacy for course credit,” Kurtz noted. “If you layer ‘culturally responsive’ woke education on top of that, teachers are forced to indoctrinate students with ideas like ‘systemic racism,’ ‘white privilege,’ and ‘gender fluidity.’ Teachers also have to go through training sessions to cure them of their ‘whiteness.’”

There is more.

Seems to me that you have a choice: Fight the school system while your kids are in it, or get them the hell out and enjoy them at home!

And, forget about this notion of doing all the right things for them to get into some Leftwing college that will further indoctrinate them while breaking you financially!

If I had to do it again, I would encourage career and employment paths for my children that don’t require a college degree, or if college is a must for you and your kids at least find a very conservative college.

Fatal Philanthropy

An entrepreneur with an estimated net worth of more than $136 billion, Bill Gates founded Microsoft and technology; is deeply involved with the World Health Organization, which encompasses the world economy and world peace; the international Planned Parenthood Foundation, focusing on eugenics and population control; and the many facets of academia, all without the corresponding educational background. He is now prepared to control our food supply, the climate, and shoot for the sun.  


Bill Gates is one of several non-academics who, notwithstanding, has been permitted to implement major changes in our education system in preparation for a federal takeover.  Promoted by President Obama’s administration, the schools now communicate a radical political ideology to produce workers for a global economy.  Had their intentions been honorable, they might well have reverted back to the older textbooks when the overhaul proved to be less than stellar, but it was progressing precisely according to plan.

Although I’ve provided greater detail in past essays, we’re due for a recap because the globalists have instituted so much more.  Boards of Education (B of E) have increased their indoctrination by fabricating a history in which “revolution, religion, gender, and racial groups” have negatively shaped our culture.  Historic truth is absent.  Our students know little about America’s history, our founding, and the laws that were enacted to provide freedom for all.  Today’s textbooks portray the United States as an evil empire to be loathed, disrespected, and replaced by a socialist/Marxist governance.  The political Black Lives Matter curriculum encourages racial divisiveness and victimology, which I view as the Obamas’ vengeance against the white population.

Math was first made so difficult that parents can often not help with homework – all in the name of equity – that children may struggle equally.  Now, the Gates Foundation is bankrolling “anti-racist” math, so that students need not show the correct answer and to “dismantle the classroom’s power structure.”  As marriage and family are continually disparaged, and broken homes, single mothers and neglected children disregarded, the left is removing courses where white students were said to excel.  National standards weaken the students and diminish any individual talents they may have.  Playtime was reduced drastically and now the children hate school.

Removing phonics from the reading program results in fewer readers and increased illiteracy.  Students are being robbed of the joys of sounding out new words and reading on their own.  Reading has been made more frustrating and overwhelming.  Classic literature is also under attack, particularly as today’s teachers under lockdown announced they want to drop Shakespeare from the curriculum.  The replacement recommendations are dystopian and sexualized stories that are far beyond the children’s comfort levels and coping skills.  The frontal lobe’s maturity level to handle such situations does not mature until about age 25, so their reading experiences are decidedly unpleasant.  Our enemy within is disenfranchising and under-educating our youths to discourage their reading and exercise of independent reasoning and reckoning, rendering an equivalent of the Nazi book burning unnecessary.

Math and reading test scores had dropped significantly in 2006, the graduation rates of major US cities down to 52%, with an abysmal 70% for the national average, and the administrations continue to ignore parents’ requests to remove Common Core.  Gates somewhat laughed when he admitted to the project’s failure, but he was willing to test other methods on our nation’s children.  Of course, offspring of the elite attend private schools.

When the failures of No Child Left Behind became obvious, Obama and Gates embraced another disastrous program, Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  They then removed the requirement that teachers must have mastery over their subjects, and employed unqualified teachers.  The solution was equity, replacing meritocracy with uniformity, but without grades and competition, the students lost their incentive to learn and succeed.  I do not agree that Bill and Melinda Gates meant well.  They invested millions to accomplish precisely what they achieved.  They openly admit to seeking population reduction, restraining humanity and limiting freedom under a globalist rule.  The decline of education was a deliberate success for them.   

Gates’s Common Core continues to be the left’s focus.  Students’ rights are being crushed through intersectionality, the system that divides them into competitive groups to force feelings of oppression.  American exceptionalism is all but extinguished, and scholastic achievement has become a social justice agenda.  Our students have been trained to hate Jews, Christians, all white people, the family unit, and different opinions.  They’ve been taught to believe that males and females function similarly, but that there are more than 59 sexes.  The young victims agree to abortions, myriad sexual deviances and mutilation, while succumbing to permanent emotional damage.  Indeed, the children are told they can change their sex, but are actually undergoing disfigurement and dismemberment so that they will never be able to produce the next generation – an horrific scheme for depopulation.

In mid-February, 2021, the Senate considered The Equality Act, which removes from our vocabulary the differences between the two sexes, which amounts to ignoring science and the existence and qualities unique to both sexes.  It endangers women and defeats women’s sports competitions, and diminishes the masculinity we count on for protective forces.  It was also a week ago that The Ohio State University announced its support of freshmen girls’ prostituting themselves during annual “Sex Week.” Other perverted presentations for teens include toxic masculinity, binary genders, sex in faith settings, and “Kink 101.”  And OSU is not alone.

Gates owes his wealth, his influence and, above all, his ideology of eugenics to his parents, Mary, and Bill Sr.  Building upon the concept of “philanthrocapitalism,” in which the skills of the fabulously rich are applied to the world’s problems, their attentive young son now eagerly carries on  his parents’ dream, the weeding out of “others,” the “deplorables,” the untermenschen, the racism that they and the Nazis advocated.  Such “philanthropists” are committed to securing the world for their kind.   Gates invokes ‘the rich world’s enlightened self-interest” and warns that “if societies can’t provide for people’s basic health, if they can’t feed and educate people, then their population and problems will grow and the world will be a less stable place.”  In an interview, he warned “huge population growth in places where we don’t want it, like Yemen and Pakistan and parts of Africa.”  The magisterial “we” being the rich.

Without death camps and ovens (for now), it is still possible to reduce the population directly, through the Gates Foundation’s involvement in global vaccinations, and indirectly, through education – with equity to equalize outcome, where none are better and none are worse, and no hope for singular achievement and improvement.  It is only equality that can provide every human being with freedom and equal opportunity to rise, each according to his innate abilities, efforts, and dreams.  Bad learning experiences are known to affect children negatively by stifling their emotional growth and causing depression, an effective means of reducing population.  Those who react in frustration and anger are used on the streets as the rabblerousers, the rebellious, the army of the left.

In his latest outburst of academic genius, our hero of philanthropy is now bankrolling a group of 25 educational organizations to defend non-white students from math because correct answers are racist, capitalist, and imperialist views.  In order to turn the tables and blame “white supremacists” for the underachievement of brown and black students, the elimination of the grading system is said to “combat racism.”  Rather, this has intentionally increased racism by turning the tables against the white population.  The left has implemented a shame-and-blame society, reviving the victimhood of black slaves while also victimizing the whites for the slavery of previous centuries.

As schools continue their descent into a madness, Bill Gates, devoid of any medical background, may now branch out into other fields – healthcare and vaccinations.  From 1933 to 1945, Nazi physicians and medically trained geneticists began developing racial health policies, including “medical” experimentation to advance their racial and ideological views and sterilization that harmed many minorities, and nearly annihilated Europe’s Jewish population.  Gates Sr., proponent of Planned Parenthood (PP), set the mindset for Gates Jr., and vaccinations gone wrong in Africa and India.  A former PP clinic director revealed that girls were receiving prescription contraceptives without doctors’ orders, thereby endangering them while increasing PP’s Medicaid reimbursement.

Gates made the DTP (Diptheria-Tetanus-Pertussis) vaccine a priority for African babies, yet Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., reported that ten times more African children died of Gates’s DTP vaccine than those not vaccinated.  Still, Gates remains the de facto authority.  He was responsible for India’s polio-eradication campaign in 2011 that caused 47,500 cases of vaccine-induced polio paralysis. He also promoted the highly controversial Pentavalent vaccine (hepatitis-B, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and Hib/haemophilus influenzae type-b), which was banned by Japan, UK, Canada and the US for its  unprincipled experimentation, uninformed consent, and forced medical procedures.  Is there anyone who still cannot recognize the connection of the present to the not-so-distant past?

This is likely to continue unabated, as the Gates Foundation is essentially unaccountable, moving freely between the private and public spheres.  Not burdened by democracy or national sovereignty, Gates himself gloated, “I’m not gonna get voted out of office.”

Kennedy also reported on April 14, 2020, that Anthony Fauci’s NIAID gave $3.7 million to scientists at the Wuhan Lab, to fund experiments on bats from the local caves.  Researchers warned they were playing with fire.   The prophetic Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates predicted a pandemic just before President Trump assumed office.  Now, a new, severe syndrome has been revealed – a Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children – following their recuperation from the COVID-19 virus.  Doctors are warning that COVID vaccines may be causing autoimmune attacks in heart and brain, and Dr. Sherri Tenpenny has issued warnings of the depopulation effects of vaccines within three to six months.  Yet, Gates remains the guru of global health, securing himself from any litigation.

Gates’s RNA approach to the coronavirus, considered promising for pandemics and other applications, is admittedly challenging for the elderly, but promising for the young.  During a May 2020 interview, he declared that he wants the entire world force-vaccinated, while seeking exoneration of any liability for himself and  pharmaceutical companies.  The vaccinations could be made compulsory (against the individual’s rights), compelled by the Supreme Court for the protection of public health and safety, and considered constitutional, as it did during the 1905 smallpox epidemic, and Bill Gates stands to profit by the millions.

This necessitates some revelatory information about how Gates would then extend his control to vaccination cards and universal testing requirements, Agenda ID2020, as part of a vaccination package.  The agenda was designed and backed by the Rockefeller Foundation, Accenture, the WEF and GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations), a centralized general electronic data collection to include 200 points per citizen, for such as bank accounts, shopping habits, health records, political inclination, etc.  This is his entrée to complete control over all citizenry, including their right to bear children, attend government-controlled schools, travel, start businesses and hiring procedures, to qualify for national healthcare and voting rights, ad infinitum.

So drastically out of touch, Gates was shown smirking during a TV interview, as business owners have shut down, workers lost jobs, the elderly suffered from loneliness, and students agonized from isolation and ended their own lives.  He calmly said the people must continue on lockdown.

 On February 26th it was announced that litigation is beginning for Crimes Against Humanity, an offense in the international criminal law, adopted in the Charter of the International Military Tribunal (Nuremberg Charter), for the full devastating impact and domination inflicted on the public as a consequence of the “wholly fraudulent” corona virus (corona scandal), from which no extra deaths have been reported – the collateral damage from the lockdowns, destruction of businesses and people’s lives, and the imposition of masks that are considered very damaging to the psychological and physical health of the wearer.  The group of attorneys of several countries are seeking legal reparations for all who have been adversely affected.  The information will also include a review of the dangerous Great Reset, to fight for the implementation of a truly independent justice system.  Please listen to Dr. Reiner Fuellmich here.

Gates has the proverbial finger in every pie.  He already believes humans should be eating synthetic beef, and with his recent purchase of 242 acres of farmland and nearly 27,000 acres of other land across 19 states, he is America’s farmland king in control of agriculture.  In agreement with AOC’s desire to make cattle farming a thing of the past, thereby depriving Americans of beef, dairy products and leather, Gates may now control the production of plant food.  Dare we expect this disciple of extinction to increase food production or is it more likely that he’d proceed along the path of Stalin’s “Great Purge” of 1932, the political starvation of 13.9 million Ukrainians.

Gates has now granted himself license to fund a climate change experiment with Harvard scientists to dim or block out the sun, another means of curbing our food sources for depopulation.  Anything is possible when we surrender our rights.

The grim rise of ‘hate studies’

Intellectual sanity requires monitoring the first signs of destructive idiocy.


The toxic ideas that have corrupted today’s universities all began as tiny, obscure musings before escaping from the laboratories. They may have started with an unpublished paper or two, a request for modest institutional funding, or an informal discussion group. Eventually, they earn a panel at a regional disciplinary convention and an experimental course. In a few years, the “little idea” has metastasized into a full-blown intellectual plague.

Particularly disturbing is that the intellectual soundness of this “little idea” has no relationship to its burgeoning appeal—the opposite may be true: the wackier it is, the more alluring for career-minded academics chasing “the next big thing.” How else can one explain critical race theory, academic-style feminism, the deconstruction mania, and, alas, much more?

Intellectual sanity requires monitoring the first signs of destructive idiocy, just as the CDC tracks the early signs of an epidemic. Only then can the infant nonsense be strangled in the cradle. Imagine the intellectual mischief we could have avoided if critical race theory died an early, peaceful, obscure death.

That said, here’s the next big evil: “hate studies.”

This incipient plague embraces the very essence of totalitarianism—the criminalization of thinking. Out with criminal behavior, in with thoughtcrime. Not only does this switch contravene America’s long legal stress on illegal behavior (and First Amendment protection of unpopular speech) but the inherent murkiness of thoughtcrime and the near impossibility of reading peoples’ minds ensures that anybody, anytime can be punished for “bad thinking.”

Now, since every human regularly thinks “bad thoughts,” nobody is safe from today’s Grand Inquisitors, and if one believes that being hounded for systemic racism is bad, just wait until one is denounced for unknowingly holding “dangerous stereotypes” about people of color. Confess your bad thoughts! We are all guilty, all the time, and so prosecutors can send everyone off for rehabilitation.

I recently encountered this pox-in-the-making in my Bard College alumnae magazine (the Bardian, Fall 2020), which almost incidentally mentioned the Bard Center for the Study of Hate. “Hate” has long been a professional interest of mine, so I looked a little deeper. Lo and behold, Bard’s war on “hate” is a nascent industry that already has a website, webinars, a journal, courses with reading lists, and academic specialists. Rest assured that savvy professors are soliciting naive foundations to combat this alleged evil currently bedeviling America.

The Bard Center (BCSH) “…  will bring scholars from diverse disciplines to Bard College and all of its campuses to speak about the human capacity to hate and demonize others. It will place, mentor, and support students working at internships with nongovernmental organizations that combat hate.”  It also, “…seeks to impact public discussion about hatred nationally and internationally.”

This anti-hate message is already filtering into student brains through such Bard courses as Outsider Art; American Studies; Gender and Sexuality Studies; German Expressionism; Capitalism and Slavery; Contagion: on rumor, heresy, disease, and financial panic; and Women’s Rights, Human Rights, among others. Bard students will almost surely learn about the evils of “hate” and ambitious, trend-sniffing academics will adjust their teaching interests accordingly.

Nor is Bard College alone in the enterprise. Other early investors are The Gonzaga Institute for Hate StudiesThe International Network for Hate StudiesCalifornia State University at Santa Barbara Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, and up in Canada, the Centre on Hate, Bias and Extremism located at the Ontario Institute of Technology. Meanwhile, the hate hatters gathered in Warsaw, Poland last year for The International Network for Hate Studies (did anyone tell Polish jokes?).

The Journal of Hate Studies is already up to Volume 17, and for those doubting its academic bona fides, it has been blessed by the Seal of Approval from the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), which certifies the journal as offering high quality, peer-reviewed articles. This is a high-minded mission: “The Journal reflects the optimism that as hate is understood, it can be contained and controlled allowing for persons to reach their full human potential without fear of retribution.”

And what, exactly, is this hate that must be scrutinized and then purged from the human mind? According to the Journal, said hate can be found in “…any one or more of its manifestations (e.g. racism, misogyny, antisemitism, homophobia, religious intolerance, ethnoviolence, anti-immigrant animus, etc.).” Needless to say, one does not have to be a Talmudic scholar to see the troublesome imprecision and the pitfalls of this anti-hate mission. Does hate motivate opposition to open borders, or might this be rational, economic self-interest? Is criticizing Islam for promoting terrorism just hateful emotion, or is it supported by fact?

Those who think that resolving these complexities is easy should consult the history of interpreting the First Amendment’s struggle with “dangerous” speech. Is hate to be banished entirely, or is some hate, for example, hating the KKK, tolerable? These hate-hunters will also patrol a huge territory: “Consider[ing] how hate is institutionalized, maintained, or perpetrated through culture, organizations, policies, politics, media, discourses, epistemologies, etc.” Note the reference to two “etc.’s” in these catalogues. Can one be guilty of hating “etc.”? I personally loath the etc. community.

Who will exorcise this hate? The Ministry of Anti-Hate? The courts or the Stasi? Might each individual be the judge and jury and settle the matter as he sees fit? Special tribunals of expert academics with doctorates in Hate Studies? Will hate hounds receive special training from mind-readers or utilize hi-tech tools like fMRI’s to probe the brain’s depths and root out unconscious bias?

Recall how yesterday’s hateful slur may become today’s official designation—queer, Chicano among others. We all know how certain words are certifiably hateful if employed by some but not others. What if the alleged hate has no relationship to any possible behavior, as in “I hate Anabaptists,” when this sect barely exists? And what are the penalties for haters when exposed? Public confessions and shaming? There are no easy answers, since the American criminal code excludes “hate” as a stand-alone crime. If unemployment were the penalty, no American would have a job.

“Hate Studies” is clearly an academic racket for ambitious scholars likely frustrated in climbing up the traditional academic ladder. It is not especially technical, nor does it require mastering a foreign language. Entry into the field is easy, but this “softness” should not detract from the awaiting evil. Today’s universities are happy to hire quacks galore to ameliorate their woes—why not hire a few extra anti-hate specialists to add to the collection? It’s all too easy to imagine these hate-hunters heading Inquisitions exposing invisible “hate” everywhere. Books, entire libraries, and even traditional disciples will be scrutinized for toxicity and, rest assured, costly bogus prescriptions will be written.

hate to say it, but this will not end well, so it’s time to sound the alarm.

Boston public schools cancel new advanced classes for high performing students because of racial inequalities

By: Carlos Garcia, The Blaze, February 26, 2021

Boston Public Schools officials said that a program with advanced learning classes would be cancelled over concerns that the classes served disproportionate racial groups.

The program known as Advanced Work Classes was intended to serve high-performing students in the fourth, fifth and sixth grade. Students are encouraged to study their subjects in a deeper and non-traditional manner.

School officials became concerned when a report showed that the program was disproportionately serving white students, and underserving black and Hispanic students.

The district analysis found that more than 70% of the students in the program were white or Asian, while nearly 80% of the students in the district are Hispanic or black.

“This is just not acceptable,” said School Committee member Lorna Rivera in a school meeting in January. “I’ve never heard these statistics before, and I’m very very disturbed by them.”

Rivera cited one finding at one school that showed the program included 60% white fourth graders though a majority of third graders are black or Hispanic.

Superintendent Brenda Cassellius told WGBH News on Friday that they would put the program on hiatus over the racial findings.

“There’s been a lot of inequities that have been brought to the light in the pandemic that we have to address,” Cassellius said. “There’s a lot of work we have to do in the district to be antiracist and have policies where all of our students have a fair shot at an equitable and excellent education.”

Students would be eligible in the program if they scored high on a test in third grade. Of those, participants were chosen by lottery. Officials said 453 students were invited to the program last fall, 143 students applied and 116 enrolled for the 2021 year.

Cassellius said students already enrolled in the program could continue, but it would be phased out for fourth and fifth grades.
