    A recent California State University-Long Beach “teach-in” charged that America "was founded on white supremacy and racism," and "built on a racist capitalist system, meant to weaken the minority."

    According to a faculty email promoting the event, the “Understanding Race” teach-in was part of a national response by the American Anthropology Association, in partnership with the CSULB Anthropology Department and Student Association, “to the recent violence in Charlottesville and the broader context of racial animosity and rising white supremacy around the world.”

    Chair and Professor of the Political Science Department, Teresa Wright, sent out an email promoting the event as a local part of the national effort to discuss “various topics related to the ‘science,’ social construction, and policing of racial divides.”

    These jerkazoids have , for the most part given up on The Working Class in pursuit of their dream of creating a Communist America. Instead they have shifted to Race , gender , Islam and differing Sexuality as the oppressed in modern America.

    And in their pursuit of Utopia , they have along the way created not only their own pseudo religious dogma , but devils and demons that seem to swirl in the air around them.

    Climate Change has replaced divine wraith ( see hurricanes , earthquakes and other natural disasters ) , the Patriarchy , Institutional Racism , White Privilege and Islamaphobia are the new Devil. Racist and Nazi are replacing the terms Blasphemer and Infidel.

    These people have become the present day religious crazies who question nothing and believe without a doubt what their " clerics " tell them , including destroying , smashing , hurting and even killing they must do to create a better world.

    And that they here to rid the planet of anyone who isn't a true believer.

    And where dwell the " Enlightened " ? what do they do for a living , these greater beings?

    Some are those insufferable Trust Fund Babies , who never having a job never worry about getting , keeping or losing one because those checks from the lawyers keep them fat and happy. Then there are the Basement Dwellers who live off their family while at the same time insulting them. There are those that wander off into drug dealing to make a living and become a problem to the society they hate and loath. And finally there are those that never leave college and just become part of school in one fashion or another and thus never go out into the real world and come to believe that they are not only better then everyone else , but think that one day they will sit in judgment of the country from their ivory towers.

    These people are also under the sad / bad delusion that if they turn America into a Communist country that their quality of life won't change at all.

    They look at the poor state of living in the Soviet Union , Cuba , China under Mao , North Korea , or what's happening in Venezuela.
    They'll come up with some excuse like " America is creating poverty there " " The Capitalist are stealing from the people " " We don't have those kind of resources " " they need more aid from other countries " or " other countries won't trade with them " ;
    Like an anti-social kid with a bad parent who make excuse after excuse for them , never seeing or believing that they have a rotten kid. Of course these are the same people that think that more regulations on business and more taxes grow an economy . No country , in the history of the world ever taxed itself into prosperity.

    Now they want to do the same thing with civil rights.

    Since very few , if any on the Left have very little ability to reason ( they do everything on emotion ) , they don't have the power to debate ( how many times have we seen ANTIFA or a SJW scream buzz words over and over again when ask a question , resort to violence rather then give an answer). So instead of debating , or defending their philosophy they have decided to kill the Free Speech of anyone who dares question their beliefs. A normal person will tell what they believe and why they believe it, give examples of it in history , quote their favorite writers or speakers. These people seem to be totally unable to do any of that ; everything they know and were taught was given to them on an emotional level , not an intellectual. But we should expect that when those teaching them still think like children themselves.

    So now they want to shut down debate , silence speakers , even destroy the writings of people who disagree with them in any way ; if the other guy isn't allowed to talk , then they are so sure they are right. And they take pride in silencing others because don't have the talent to win their intelligence.

    If those little mushbrains think they're poor and oppressed now, they ought to try living in a real Socialist workers' paradise for a few years.

    The art of teaching is dead.


    When I was in college, professors and instructors would say provocative things in class-not because it was necessarily their belief, but to spur class discussion about whether those statements were right or not, and what made them either right or wrong. Back in the dark ages of the 1980s teachers wanted the students to discuss issues intelligently in class instead of preaching at them all the time.

    That's not what we're getting any more.

    Its as if these teachers are there to convert students to their way of thinking instead of the subject at hand.

    They act as if their mission is to teach these kids what to think rather then how to think.

    It use to be a Liberal Art education taught you how to open up your mind and see the world and the people in it in new and different ways.
    Now it means converting kids who don't know anything to a limited Neo-Leftist orthodoxy that is akin to how people thought in the Dark Ages.

    I'm a liberal and I hate that kind of crap. One of my favorite professors in college was a conservative history teacher, and I had him for the class about the Vietnam era. It was good to have a conservative teach that part of history-I went to public K-12 school in the 70s and most of my teachers were former hippies who had a definitive opinion on the war. Plus, Hollywood has their own spin on Vietnam.
