“Equity, in its classical definition, is that which is possessed by right or earned through service. Was it this student’s right to possess a college degree? No – otherwise, everyone would have a college degree. Had she earned it by working through the curricula? Highly doubtful, because she lacked the ability to read. The answer must be related to a different definition of equity… The modern call for equity is based upon a quality of victimhood – namely, that some people are entitled to the property and privileges of other people because of historical wrongs to which the perceived victims’ only modern connection is skin color.” – Chris Boland, “The equity movement distilled in a single student” – American Thinker, May 19th, 2021.

“We have reached a postmodern era where facts are irrelevant and only identity and feelings matter. If you dissent from the new regime of ideas, you will be verbally set upon by a mob of enraged students, faculty, and ‘diversity and inclusion’ administrators. There will be calls for you to be ‘disappeared’ from campus.” – Donna M. Hughes, “The silencing of voices on college campuses” – American Thinker, April 3rd, 2021.

“Nickelodeon, a cable network that used to entertain children and is now aggressively looking to prematurely sexualize them, is facing a well-deserved ratings collapse… Maybe pushing adult sexuality on a children’s network isn’t such a good idea, and it really makes you wonder what’s going on behind the scenes with the execs that brings such creepy content to air.” – John Nolte, “CBSViacom’s child-grooming campaign (via Nickelodeon) isn’t going so well for ratings” – Breitbart, June 10th, 2021.

“The comments were made on a now deleted New York Post Facebook post of an article about Meisha Ross-Porter, the New York City Schools Chancellor, calling for an end to the testing she deemed ‘unnacceptable,’ a test that is passed with flying colors by Asian students… Of those that passed the testing required to get into New York City’s specialized high schools, 53.7 percent were Asian, 27.9 percent were white, 5.4 percent were Hispanic, and just 3.6 percent were black.” – Hannah Nightingale, “Specialized high school testing defenders are ‘bigots’ says NYC Department of Education official” – The Post Millennial, May 2nd, 2021.

“On one side, progressives argued that curriculum and disciplinary changes were needed to make all children feel safe and welcome in Carroll, a mostly white but quickly diversifying school district. On the other, conservatives in Southlake rejected the school diversity plan as an effort to indoctrinate students with a far-left ideology that, according to some, would institutionalize discrimination against white children and those with conservative Christian values… In a statement to NBC News on Sunday, (lawyer Hannah) Smith, who is white, said the election ‘was a referendum on those who put personal politics and divisive philosophies ahead of Carroll ISD students and families, and their common American heritage and Texas values’.” – Mike Hixenbaugh and Antonia Hylton, “In bitterly divided election in Southlake, Texas, opponents of anti-racism education win big” – American Renaissance, May 2nd, 2021.
