Tomi Lahren, talking head for Fox News made the assertion that the ‘programming’ of youth by public schooling begins early. The fun part of this piece is the assertion made in the Yahoo headline concerning Lahrens “Wild claim!” of early educational programming when she responded to Speaker Pelosi’s assertion that the voting age should be lowered to 16.
The linked article, blessedly short, is an example of bias in the reporting of social issues when authors are cloistered exclusivly with others of their own political perspective. The viewpoint of the author of the linked article is evidenced from the first inflammatory words of the Yahoo homepage headline……..
As the parent of five, (children). I have much anecdotal experience of political engineering beginning at grade-school level. Of course it is not surprising that a government employee, in a strongly unionized industry, would cleft to political views that support union influence, and essentially, their paychecks.
YOUR HUMBLE BLOGGIST LOST “IT” AT THE RIPE OLD AGE OF FIFTEEN. AT THAT AGE, IN THE EARLY SEVENTIES, SIR EDMUND HILLARY WAS MY MORAL COMPASS. “Because it’s there!” is enough of an excuse for the walking erection of a fifteen year old in any decade.! SO WHY DOES IT SEEM SO TERRIBLE WHEN IT IS THE OTHER WAY AROUND; WHEN IT IS A MALE TEACHER SCREWING A FEMALE STUDENT?
Women have always been considered the custodians of the higher moral ground in our culture. while men have been exiled to the outhouse of bad sexual behavior. When a man “walks the line.” it is a woman who has drawn the line. Throughout the history of western civilization women have both been repressed cherished. A troubled mix of good and bad consequences for the females. . Men, however, were deluded into thinking it is noble to sacrifice themselves to protect the innocent women. Men are expendable. We have accepted this burden. When a man bitches; he is vilified to the max by our entire culture! “Butt!” It is a bargain both sides were reconciled too. It doesn’t exist anymore. At least not at a level that meaningfully impacts society.
But I and many men and women of my generation feel that something precious has been lost to this society. The great cause of every dweeb who finally got a date. The notion that caused many a males chest to swell with pride. We would jump at the chance to risk injury or death in protecting women. Men are the expendable gender. Women, representing the good, decent part of life, are to be cherished and protected at all costs. Things are changing…
Recent surveys attest to the demise of chivalry in this society. In 1912 the “unsinkable” Titanic met an even more unsinkable iceberg. 1300 men find their eternal slumber in the eternal black, a thousand feet below under a blanket of frigid water. Only 103 females were lost. Most current male respondents stated those numbers would be inverted if the boat sank today. The men, rather than standing in harms way, would be tossing women and children out of the lifeboats to save themselves. I admit there is a lot that must be changed between men and women, but the way things are going, the good ol’ days are looking better and better.
Republicans are not American. They are taking away your right to vote! People are getting cancer and dying of fracking! Look who has Obama’s ear on the Keystone pipeline (could be an alien). What are kids being taught about fracking! . Where are the groups of children who share beliefs that fracking is not harmful? Oh! My! They are in a school! I guess it should be called an indoctrination center. .The commonality between the clips is that they are a revelation of fantasy issues defended by unsupported assertions. Who is providing the spurious information? From K-12 to the first Bachelors degree our children, if they are taught in a public school, have been propagandized by teaching staff to believe the progressive fantasy line on most issues. If there was aver any restraint in shaping a childs social and political beliefs by government employees, it is sorely lacking now.
