“The University of Arizona is hiring students to be ‘social-justice activists,’ [SJAs] and the job description demands that they ‘report any bias incidents or claims to appropriate Residence Life staff’… In other words: These kids are being paid to tattle on other kids for anything they might consider to be a microaggression, and any students who gets (sic) these jobs should probably identify themselves so that other students will know to never invite them to their parties… According to the university’s website, the official title of the position is ‘social-justice activist,’ and it pays $10 per hour. They can expect to work about 15 hours per week, which, as the Daily Caller notes, means that they will be making roughly $600 per month to behave like self-righteous, meddling nightmares.” – Harvard Crimson article “U-Arizona is hiring-students-to tattle on others for bias-incidents” quoted by Edward Cline in “College snitches” – Family Security Matters, May 19th, 2017.

“The Church of England has called for parents to lose the right to withdraw their children from religious education classes – because some parents are apparently using it to pull their children out of lessons on Islam… Derek Holloway, the head of RE in the Church of England’s education office, has called for that right to be removed from parents and for their children to be taught other world religions regardless of the parents’ views… ‘Seemingly [some parents] do not want their children exposed to other faiths and world views, in particular Islam. We are concerned that this is denying those pupils the opportunity to develop the skills they need to live well together as adults,’ he told The Times.” – Donna Rachel Edmunds, “Church of England spokesman: Children should be forced to learn about Islam” – Breitbart, April 28th, 2017.

“The current hostility on campus to white people is stupid. The human race faces many serious problems. Trying to cripple the group most likely to solve them is good neither for you, the United States, nor the world… success does not justify you in looking down on others. It does suggest that you need not allow yourself to be scorned. You, as a member of way-and-gone the most successful and creative race and culture the planet has seen, should not put up with it. Don’t brag about our achievements. But know of them…” – Fred Reed, “Notes for a White Kid in university:An introduction to the blindingly obvious” – Fred On Everything, April 13th, 2017.

“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.

“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.
