Education gone wild

A high school in Shepherdsville, KY tried to fill the knowledge gap for the selfie generation. As reported by Wave 3 News, Bullitt Central High School seniors had an Adulting Day, to learn practical skills for real life. The school’s Family Resource & Youth Services Center organized the event, which brought in people from the community. Real-world adults taught the senior class how to change a tire, manage a credit card, cook in a dorm room, and handle finances. Police explained how to behave during traffic stops. And because these kids are, well, snowflakes, there was a speaker on how to deal with homesickness at college.

What’s sad about this, folks, is that before liberals took over education, practical-life instruction was normal fare in every school across the fruited plain. Now schools are more invested in indoctrinating kids on the politically correct pronouns for all 63 genders.

Wacky

peta is up to its eggsasperating tactics again. As reported by The San Francisco Chronicle, a San Jose, CA peta billboard of an egg-faced woman included a message eggsclaiming: “Face it — you can’t claim to be a feminist and eat eggs. Eggs and dairy are a product of the abuse of females.” Apparently, eating eggs eggsploits chickens that self-identify as hens.

peta spokeschick Marissa Price eggsplained, “In this ad, we’re asking people to go vegan in solidarity with female animals who are being sexually abused.” (Which makes absolutely no sense; chickens lay eggs with or without a rooster.) In this #MeToo (#BeakToo?) era, peta says it picked San Jose because it is a city full of “strong women.” For this, eggsceptional brains not required.

Border security

“I would be willing to ‘shut down’ government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall!” — President Trump, on Twitter, 7/29/18

“At the beating heart of this election is border security. We have to have it.” — President Trump, at West Virginia rally, c-span, 8/21/18

 

The sound you hear is the political class quaking with fear and fury. We’ve been told that “the third rail of politics” for elected officials is anything to do with Social Security reform — touch it, and you die, supposedly. The truth is, the real third rail of modern American politics is any attempt to stop illegal immigration. The establishment — of both parties — has no interest in that. Zip, zero, nada.

Dumbing down continues

According to People, schools in the UK are removing analog clocks from classrooms — because kids can’t read them. So, do they teach the students how to tell time the old-fashioned way? No. They give up. “The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” explains Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders in England. According to The [UK] Telegraph, many high school students “were only able to tell time on digital devices.” What are they going to do next, take down Big Ben?

This is nuts. Analog clocks are still in use all over the world. Instead of using taxpayer money to replace clocks, it’s high time high school students learned how to give someone the time of day. First it was millennials unable to add or subtract without a calculator, then it was banning cursive writing, and now it’s removing clocks. School administrators should have their clocks cleaned. Teachers need to lay off the 64 genders lesson plans, and start in with “when the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 1…” What would it take, 15 minutes? Time’s up for stupid.

Truth?

“The FBI Didn’t Use an Informant to Go After Trump. They Used One to Protect Him.” — headline, The Washington Post

How thoughtful! And to show how much the Deep State cares, they’re using Mueller to “protect” him even more!

Women?

The newest leftist crime is to refer to women as “women.” According to Campus Reform, the all-female college Mount Holyoke issued a Supporting Trans and Non-Binary Studentsguide, to “promote a gender-neutral” classroom environment. Instead of referring to “Mount Holyoke women,” faculty members are instructed to use the phrase “Mount Holyoke students.” Professors are also urged to stop making statements like “We’re all women here,” or referring to “the two genders.” Folks, the point of all this is “inclusion” — yet the college excludes men. Hmm.

On the school website, the college is described as “a highly selective, nondenominational, residential, research liberal arts college for women.” An entire section of the website is devoted to the question, “Why a Women’s College?” and touts all the advantages of an all-female education. When you’re called out for calling a “woman” a “woman” at a self-described “women’s college,” Mount Holyoke has officially morphed into a clown college.

Makes you wonder what students are to be called: People Formerly Known as Women? Comrades? Lunatics? How about feminazis?

King Kong?

For 19 years, “Dobby” the gorilla — a statue inside a climbing cage — was a beloved attraction at the Community Park playground in Corsicana, TX. Until a group of 45 citizens went bananas. They demanded City Hall remove the statue because, according to cbsLocal.com, Dobby was “racially insensitive.” I kid you not. In a letter to The Corsicana Daily Sun, a resident complained, “The gorilla is a black ape confined in a [sic] unbreakable cage … it could be thought of as a metaphor for the institution of slavery.” Corsicana Mayor Don Denbow acquiesced. “[W]e have an obligation to listen to all our citizens, to determine what is offensive and not, especially in public places.” Poof! No more gorillas in his midst.

But after Dobby was banished, other citizens weighed in. Over a thousand devoted fans set up a makeshift memorial, with balloons and flowers, demanding Dobby’s return. The mayor beat a hasty retreat. Dobby was brought back, this time cageless, and painted a non-offensive light gray. “To match the monochromatic colors,” as The Daily Sun reported, of the nearby elephant statue. Because heaven forbid animal statues come in different shades. It might be insensitive.
