Cultural Marxism For The Kids; The War on Merit Comes to Suburbia

Cultural Marxism For The Kids:
The Left’s plan to disfigure America moves forward.
The results of a survey released last week revealed that two-thirds of 18-39 year-old Americans do not know that 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust. One-half of the respondents could not name a single concentration camp. One-fourth said the holocaust was a myth and one-tenth blamed it on the Jews.
I guess this shouldn’t come as a surprise. It is very much in line with other recent polls which find that just 27 percent of those under the age of 45 nationally can demonstrate a basic understanding of American history. Additionally, 57 percent of all Americans don’t know we have nine Supreme Court justices, 60 percent don’t know which countries we fought in WWII, and only 32 percent can correctly name all three branches of government.
Instead of cleaning up its act, the education establishment is doubling down. In fact, America’s children are in the process of having their brains scrubbed clean. Instead of teaching actual history, we are seeing more and more curricula that is pointedly critical of America and its traditional values. Facts are irrelevant. Objectivity is non-existent. Lies are truth.
The new indoctrination is for the most part of the far-left race-obsessed variety. In Virginia, the state Board of Education is in the process of discussing recommendations set forth in a report commissioned by Governor Ralph Northam. It proposes revamping Virginia’s school curriculum, to include “critical race theory,” which claims that “whiteness” is a moral blight and that all white people are complicit in oppressing people of color. --->READ MORE HERE

The War on Merit Comes to Suburbia:
What happens when working hard to succeed doesn’t matter? Or when doing well in academics is actually considered wrong or bad?
The whole idea of a society where the best rise to the top is embedded in America’s founding. The notion of advancing based on who your parents were or whether they were “noble” or not gave way to a society based on merit and excellence. Who your parents were shouldn’t matter. Where you’re from shouldn’t matter.
Until now.
Radical educational bureaucrats are destroying the idea that some people are smarter than others, more capable than others, work harder than others, or are more naturally gifted at certain things than others. This is called “being human” and to deny it is to deny humanity itself. But what it means to be human doesn’t fit into the ever-narrowing liberal worldview that seeks to define people based on race. --->READ MORE HERE
