The University of Washington’s kiddie congress decision to vote down a singular memorial to World War Two hero Colonel Boyington and replace it with a massemorial displays a glaring disenfranchisement between this nation’s history and how very little they actually know of the land in which they live.
UW student Jill Edwards made the comment, “She didn’t believe a member of the Marine Corps was an example of the sort of person UW wanted to produce.” Another UW student Ashley Miller further said, “Than many monuments at UW already commemorate rich white men.” These students comments weren’t just off the cuff, these young ladies made those comments of anti-Americanism and anti-capitalism from of many, many years of indoctrination in the public school system and the reinforcement of such warped thoughts from college professors.
Miss Edwards and Miller didn’t wake up that morning having a disdain for rich white men and United States Marines, they have been so brainwashed by teachers and professors with Marxists leanings that these girls actually thought what they said was perfectly normal and everyone else was in left field.
We cannot chock this up to youthful ignorance, there is a serious problem in our public schools and colleges and it is only getting worse. Rich white men, members of the Marine Corps are not good examples is something we might read from MoveOn.org or even hearing from members of Congress.
America, we cannot blow this off and hope that these young ladies and the many like them will eventually mature and grow out of this, “Hate the man” attitude.
Young impressionable students are being taught revisionist history and not history as it actually happened, and we are letting public schools get away with it. The attitude is, “Oh, my children’s school isn’t like that, they have an outstanding curriculum and great teachers” It’s always some other school and not your own that is teaching kids dysfunctional American and world history. Miss Edwards and Miller’s parents probably thought the same thing before their daughters made such absurd comments.p>This won’t change for the simple reason that many parents in America are perfectly satisfied to let the government raise and brainwash their children that United States Marines are nothing more than jackbooted imperialistic thugs terrorizing the world. After all this sentiment was echoed by Senator John Kerry that when he was in Vietnam he personally saw his fellow servicemen torturing and brutalizing Vietnamese citizens. Then we wonder where the kids get these anti-American attitudes. Heck, all they have to do is watch CSPAN. br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
