“So, why would a state board of education want to hire teachers too ill-educated to be a teacher? Why would a state want to put teachers in the classroom who can’t read? Simple, it’s all to satisfy the left’s fanatical, self-destructive obsession of seeing racism in every single aspect of life… Detractors of the test claim it is all about racism because fewer African American and Hispanic candidates pass the literacy tests compared to whites. According to the state, 46 percent of Hispanic candidates and only 41 percent of blacks pass the test… Their conclusion is unsurprising: the test is racist.” – Warner Todd Huston, “New York about to eliminate test meant to see if teachers can read… because raaacism!” – Constitution, March 13th, 2017.

“The vast majority of teaching staff have spent their entire lives in a classroom. From nursery to primary school, from primary onto secondary, then on to college and university and back into the classroom as teachers… They have virtually no concept of reality outside of the school gates. And what is extremely worrying is that these are the people who are entrusted to shape young minds… This is why for the last twenty years we’ve seen school leavers who can barely function in society, have no social skills, are completely over-sensitive and have next to nothing to offer the job market except for a deep knowledge of ‘racism’ and safe spaces’.” – Darren Holdstock, “The vast majority of teaching staff have spent their entire lives in a classroom” – British National Party, March 11th, 2017.

“Representatives for a Southern California student who was suspended after filming his professor’s anti-Donald Trump rant say Orange Coast College is taking an ‘unconstitutional viewpoint’ that targets conservatives… According to a copy of the suspension letter posted by Campus Reform, the student must also apologize to the professor and submit a double-spaced essay about ‘why you decided to share the video’ and ‘the ensuing damage to Orange Coast College students, faculty and staff’… Shortly after Election Day, Olga Perez Stable Cox told her human sexuality class that Trump was a white supremacist… His victory, she said, was ‘an act of terrorism’.” – Washington Post, “Anti-Donald Trump lecture caught on tape: Student busted for taping professor’s over-the-top rant” – reproduced in the Toronto Sun, Feb. 16th, 2017.

“If one wishes to destroy a nation and build a ‘brave new world’ you begin by indoctrinating and brainwashing the children. This process of ‘re-education’ has started some years ago in our schools and we are, now, seeing its consequences in the suppression of free speech on our university campuses.” – Chris McGovern of the Campaign for Real Education, quoted by Javier Espinoza in “Teaching children fundamental British values is act of cultural supremacism” – The Telegraph, March 28th, 2016.

“After this terrorist attack I’ve truly learned that the left is more scared of conservatism and Trump and Republicans than they are of ISIS and terrorists… Because after this terror attack I haven’t heard anything about, you know, ‘We’re praying for the victims’ or this and that. I’ve heard things about how we need to understand Islam, the vibrant Somali community we have here, how we need to embrace them even though this is the third attack by a Somali in the last year here in Columbus, and all this stuff about, you know, Muslim sensitivity… That’s all they care about, and they are more scared of the Right and Trump than they are of this terrorist attack that just happened on our campus. It’s sickening to me because I feel like they are gambling with my life in order to reach this multiculturalism lie that they worship in all of my classes – and it’s crazy.” – Ohio State student “Mackenzie” quoted by Jennifer Kabbany in “Ohio State student: After terrorist attack I’ve learned Left’s more scared of Trump than ISIS” – College Fix, Dec. 2nd, 2016.

“The University of Michigan’s distressed students were provided with Play-Doh and coloring books, as they sought comfort and distraction. A University of Michigan professor postponed an exam after many students complained about their ‘serious stress’ over the election results. Cornell University held a campuswide ‘cry-in,’ with officials handing out tissues and hot chocolate… The College Fix reported that ‘a dorm at the University of Pennsylvania … hosted a post-election ‘Breathing Space’ for students stressed out by election results that included cuddling with cats and a puppy, coloring and crafting, and snacks such as tea and chocolate’… The University of Kansas reminded its stressed-out students that therapy dogs, a regular campus feature, were available.” – Walter E.

“The documentary written by Jennifer Siebel Newsom begins with images and news reports, interwoven in a video collage of mass shootings, young boys committing suicide, gang rapes of college girls, and individuals being violently targeted for fun… Unlike many college students whose minds have not been trained to see through such propaganda, I recognize it for what it is: an extension of the unfair lens associated with most popular social theories. It is a biased stew emanating from the process-oriented minds of feminists, incorporating such notions as rape culture and the white male privileged patriarchy as seen from a non-male perspective.” – Tim Patten, “College masculinities vilifies military men” – Family Security Matters, Oct. 17th, 2016.

“This Friday, Remembrance Day, it is important to note that the US just p”””ed on the graves of every veteran who ever fought for freedom.”

“So, just before the U.S.’s Veterans’ Day, the same people who flaunt those homemade “Respecked Are Trewps” signs on their cars and lawns forget what their fathers and grandfathers fought against in Europe and Asia and elect a pack of fascist bastards. Deplorable.” (Emphasis in original).
