DaleyGator Podcast You do not have to be an idiot to write for Slate, but it helps

Here is some background from RS McCain before you listen to my views on Allison Benedikt and her column If You Send Your Kids to Private School, You Are a Bad Person

That’s an interesting headline, which Allison Benedikt endeavors to justify without success, because she’s an idiot.

I went K–12 to a terrible public school. My high school didn’t offer AP classes, and in four years, I only had to read one book. . . . I left home woefully unprepared for college, and without that preparation, I left college without having learned much there either. You know all those important novels that everyone’s read? I haven’t. I know nothing about poetry, very little about art, and please don’t quiz me on the dates of the Civil War. I’m not proud of my ignorance. But guess what the horrible result is? I’m doing fine. I’m not saying it’s a good thing that I got a lame education. I’m saying that I survived it, and so will your child, who must endure having no AP calculus so that in 25 years there will be AP calculus for all.

Allison is “doing fine,” because she’s an editor at Slate, where any ill-educated cretin can get hired, as long as they’re a liberal white girl whose wedding was reported by the New York Times.

Oh, and apparently being an anti-Israel Jew helps, too.

Free of knowledge, unencumbered by facts or logic — yes, send your kids to public school so they can be a liberal like Allison Benedikt.

Good thoughts no doubt. Allison wants your kid to suffer because other kids suffer  because “EQUALITY” or something.

Now here is my take, listen and enjoy. Click the Pic to Listen

Arkansas school trains and arms teachers, Liberal heads explode spontaneously

You just know the folks at MSNBS are wetting themselves over this. But, I bet this works. a lot better than putting up signs reading “Gun Free Zone”

In the wake of Arkansas’s decision to prevent school districts from proactively arming their teachers, a private school is taking the exact opposite approach.

The pastor of Arkansas Christian Academy in Bryant, Ark., has decided to advertise the fact that at any time, between one and seven school staff members are carrying guns.

“I just felt like with what’s going on in many of the public sectors where there seems to be a lot of shootings we need to take the same stance that we do in church on Sunday for our kids Monday through Friday,” said Perry Black, pastor of the school, in a statement.

Staff members began receiving training and permits to carry weapons earlier this year, in response to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. Now, a sign outside Christian Academy stands as a warning to any would-be shooter.

“Staff is armed and trained. Any attempt to harm children will be met with deadly force,” reads the sign.

 

 

Ah yes, the Left’s dedication to “education”

The Left focuses so much of their rhetoric around the importance of education. Have you ever wondered why? Notice that every ideology, every religion, every group thinks education is important. For some groups, it is because they want to raise future generations to be both well versed in history, science, math skills, and to be taught to think. Conservatives desire this from education. As Conservatives, we believe that open-minded thinkers will embrace our ideals of free markets, individual liberty and responsibility, and a belief in other core Conservative values. Other groups, however, are not as confident in teaching children to think for themselves.

Liberals used to tend to believe in much the same manner of education as Conservatives, but time has changed that. As Liberals have slowly morphed into Progressives, and indeed, into full-blown Leftists, their focus on the importance of education has taken on a new focus. Rather than teaching children to think critically, the Left has increasingly pushed for children to be indoctrinated to think what they are supposed to. One very good example is the current debate on gun rights, and “gun control”. For several years now, there has been a very clear campaign by the Left to turn guns into evil objects which have no good use or purpose. We have seen  numerous examples of “zero-tolerance” in schools being used to not only indoctrinate children to hate and fear guns, but to punish children as young a five for violating these zero-tolerance policies.

Now, I am sure we can all agree that children ought not bring guns to schools, but bringing a gun to school is usually not the violation kids commit. Children have been suspended, or in some other way punished for the following “violent acts” Bringing a GI Joe doll to school because the doll had a tiny plastic pistol. Bringing a pink, clear water pistol to school. Using various objects, like chicken fingers, or the child’s fingers to point and say “bang”. Playing games like cops and robbers, or in a recent example, a child throwing a pretend hand grenade while playing a child’s game. Drawing a picture of a soldier, because the drawing included a rifle. Having a picture of a gun on a computer. One child  was even punished because when asked if armed teachers would help prevent school shootings he said yes. Another child punished for daring to talk about a hunting trip her had gone on.

There are hundreds of such examples to draw on, but I think the point has been made. What is going on in our schools is NOT about education, or safety, it it about indoctrination. And certainly guns are not the only targets. what we are seeing is the Left using “education” not to teach, but to reprogram young minds. Of course, the Left has to use such tactics don’t they? I mean their ideals are a pack of failures. So, to trust independent minds to look at Leftism, and its history of suffering, oppression, and slaughter and have those minds actually embrace such a set of ideals is unthinkable to a Leftist. So, the Left bangs the drums of more education spending, and a desire for everyone to go to college, and, as President Obama mentioned in his latest campaign speech, or was that supposed to be the State of the Union speech, a push for a “right” to K-3, and K-4. Just imagine what Leftists can do to kids if they actually can have them from ages 3-22? Why they can push out a generation after generation of mind-numbed Liberals.

Yes, there is a culture war going on, and that war is for the minds of our kids. I would impress upon every parent the importance of home-schooling, or private schools, if that school actually teaches and is not just a smaller indoctrination camp public school, and the importance of colleges like Hillsdale that takes no federal money. And the need for YOU as a parent to educate your kids as much as possible to counteract the Leftist mantra being pushed on them. The Left is trying to sow the seeds of America’s destruction in the minds of our children. We must fight like Hell against that evil venture.
