The Source of Political Correctness
By Donna Wasson



http://www.raptureready.com/soap/wasson3.html

Quote
Where did this terminal cancer, which has weakened American society for over 10 years, come from? How did we get to the point where our 1st Amendment rights are literally being eroded out from beneath us? And why are we intelligent, average, sensible Americans allowing it to happen?

Bill Lind wrote an excellent article back in February 2000, called The Origins of Political Correctness, from which he lectured at various Accuracy in Academia conferences during that same year. I will be borrowing liberally from this work, so when you see words in italics, those are verbatim from that paper.

Even before the first shots were fired in the American Revolution, we in this country always took great pride in the fact that we could speak our minds with impunity. In fact, we’ve taken it for granted so long we’ve hardly noticed that freedom is all but a thing of the past. Like the frog placed in a pot of water who didn’t realize the heat was slowly being turned up and didn’t know he was being cooked until it was too late, political correctness will be the death of us.

There are some who have pointed out this scourge over the years, but we’ve apparently been too busy with our day to day lives and concerns to pay much attention. We’re beginning to listen now! The demand for political correctness (P.C.) is getting louder and more intrusive than ever and unless we push back and speak the truth, we will be forced to live in fear of ‘offending’ the wrong person.

This insidious nonsense is precisely why tens of millions have died around the world. We see the consequences on the news every day as hundreds are being slaughtered by their own military and government for daring to speak out against the repressive society in which they live. History is witness to those citizens who have been harassed, arrested or even executed in places like Russia, North Korea, China and even in Europe and it all started with controlling what the populace could say publically.

Basically, political correctness is cultural Marxism. Webster’s defines Marxism as “The political and economic view of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels that society inevitably develops through class struggle from oppression under capitalism to eventual classlessness.” Political correctness is a totalitarian ideology.

An ideology posits that due to what a particular philosophy states, certain things must be true. An example of this would be to say the entire history of human culture reflects the history of the oppression of females. It is a gross exaggeration of a basic or partial truth.

 

Since reality contradicts the basic or partial truth, reality must be forbidden. Thus, to keep people from speaking out and refuting what they know reality to be, the power of the state must be put behind the demand to live a lie. That is why ideology invariably creates a totalitarian state.

Cultural Marxism or political correctness says that all history is determined by power, by which groups defined in terms of race, sex, etc., have power over other groups. Nothing else matters.

As classic Marxism philosophy teaches, certain groups are ‘good’ while others are ‘bad.’ For instance blacks, Hispanic, homosexuals and feminists are determined to be ‘victims’, and therefore are automatically good regardless of what any of them do. Similarly, white males (and white females) are determined to automatically be evil. Unfortunately, anyone who currently professes to be a true, practicing Christian is now considered the cause du jour of all the world’s ills.

Nowhere else is political correctness more prevalent than on America’s college campuses. Any student or even faculty member who dares cross any line set by any of the ‘victim’ groups quickly find themselves in hot water with the ‘intellectual elite.’ Sometimes, the offender is even subject to formal charges and/or punishments.

As in economic Marxism, the P.C. crowd utilizes the tool of expropriation for control and growth. Expropriation means taking someone’s property or depriving them of their possessions, especially for public use. When political correctness takes over a university campus, its proponents will expropriate through things like quotas for admissions. When a white student with superior qualifications is denied admittance to a college in favor of a black or Hispanic who isn’t as well qualified, the white student is expropriated. In society at large, Affirmative Action is another perfect example of this tactic.

Both types of Marxism have a method of analysis that manipulates and provides the answers they want. For P.C., it is deconstruction, or taking any text, removing all meaning from it and re-inserting any meaning desired. By doing this, they are able to once again show or ‘prove’ that all history is about which groups have power over which other groups. This is how the history books in our public school systems have been re-written to reflect the ‘victimhood’ of certain groups due to the evil white man taking advantage for his own gain.

Political correctness has a history which, surprisingly, extends much further back than the 1960’s with its hippies and anti-war movement. It goes back to the time of WWI. The people espousing economic Marxism were certain when war came to Europe, as it did in 1914, that the common people would rise up in their various countries and overthrow their governments. They figured the general public would feel they had much more in common with each other across national boundaries than with the rich and ruling class in their own country. They were wrong.

The people in each country happily backed their individual national flags and identities and marched off to fight each other. The Marxists were puzzled because they couldn’t possibly be wrong about their dazzling ideology so two Marxist theorists put their heads together to postulate what the problem could be.

Antonio Gramsci, from Italy, thought the workers would never see their true class interests, as defined by Marxism, until they were freed from Western culture and particularly from the Christian religion because these two forces blinded them to their potential.

Georg Lukacs, from Hungary, was considered the most brilliant Marxist theorist since Marx himself and stated in 1919, “Who will save us from Western Civilization?” When the Bolshevik Bela Kun government was established the same year, Lukacs became the deputy commissar for culture. The first thing he did was introduce sex education into Hungarian schools, which the people were appalled by and, as a result, they turned against the new government. This was his aim.

In Germany in 1923, Felix Weil, the wealthy, spoiled son of a millionaire trader became a Marxist and spent a considerable amount of money sponsoring something called the First Marxist Work Week. He was concerned about the division of opinions within Marxist ranks and brought together many of the key German thinkers, including Lukacs, to work out the differences. He stated, “What we need is a think-tank”, thus establishing the familiar term which resulted in translating Marxism from economic to cultural, creating Political Correctness as we know it today.

That same year, 1923, he endowed the Institute for Marxism, which was associated with Frankfurt University. However, after realizing it was not to their advantage to openly proclaim themselves Marxist, they changed the name to the Institute for Social Research so as to not seem threatening to the general public.

Weil stated in 1971 that, “I wanted the Institute to become known, perhaps famous, due to its contributions to Marxism.” The first director of the Frankfurt School, as the Institute was informally named, was Carl Grunberg, an Austrian economist. In his opening address, he concluded by clearly stating his personal allegiance to Marxism as a scientific methodology and that it would be the ruling principle at the Institute. This never changed.

In 1930, the facility got a new director, Max Horkheimer, whose Marxist views were thought to be too radical by the mainstream members. The theorists at the Institute were expelled from the official Marxist party. Horkheimer’s sin was to combine cultural Marxism with Freudism. Freud thought everyone lived repressed lives, and Horkheimer and the Institute combined the two to create a new theory called, Critical Theory.

Critical Theory is quite simple. It states that the best way to bring down Western culture and the capitalist order, which represses its citizens, is to sharply criticize the established order but explicitly refuse to lay down an alternative. It calls for the most destructive criticism possible, in every possible way, designed to bring the current order down. Critical Theory is now known as Political Correctness.

Two key members joined the Institute in the 1930’s, Erich Fromm and Herbert Marcuse, who introduce the need for sexual liberation which is a strong theme in today’s P.C. thinking.

Horkheimer came up with the idea of environmentalism, also a popular element in modern thinking today. “Materialism had led to a manipulative dominating attitude toward nature” and the theme of man’s domination of nature was a central concern of the Frankfurt School in subsequent years. He also expressed another criticism of materialism and common labor with the demand for human, sensual happiness and personal gratification to which he felt the leaders of government and society were hostile.

This is about the time these inane ideas were introduced into America and its universities. In 1933, the Nazis came to power in Germany and shut down the Institute for Social Research. Its members fled to New York City and reestablished the Institute there with help from Columbia University. Through the 1930’s the members shifted their focus from German society to directing Critical Theory toward American society.

Some of the members also went to work for the government, including Herbert Marcuse, who became a key figure in the OSS (the predecessor to the CIA). Others, including Horkheimer moved to…wait for it….Hollywood, California.

Today’s political correctness matured in the student rebellion of the 1960’s which was largely due to resistance to the military draft and the Vietnam War in general. The students needed to justify their rage with some theory that had a somewhat believable rationale to support it. Herbert Marcuse had remained in America after the Frankfurt School relocated back to Germany after the war and was available to come to their rescue.

Marcuse saw the rebellion as a great opportunity to make the work of the Institute and its theories into the New Left in America. One of his books virtually became the student rebel’s bible. The book, Eros and Civilization: A Philosophical Inquiry into Freud, had its Marxist ideology downplayed, as the theories were disguised in softer language. Because the youth in the rebellion were not the sharpest tools in the shed, Marcuse’s book was much easier to understand than classic economic Marxism and the students lived by its tenets.

See if the following sounds familiar: Under a capitalistic order, repression is the essence of that order and that results in the person Freud describes—a person with all the hang-ups, the neuroses, because his sexual instincts are repressed. We can envision a future, if we can only destroy the existing oppressive order, in which we liberate Eros, we liberate libido, in which we have a world of “polymorphous perversity,” in which you can ‘do your own thing.’ In that world there will no longer be work, only play. Sounds eerily like the Occupy Movement, doesn’t it??

This message for the radicals of the mid-1960’s sounded like nirvana. They were students and baby boomers who grew up never having to worry about anything except eventually having to get a job. And here is a guy writing in a way they can easily understand. He doesn’t require them to read a lot of heavy Marxism and he tells them everything they want to hear, which is essentially, “Do your own thing,” “If it feels good, do it,” and “You never have to go to work.” Marcuse is also the genius who coined the brilliant phrase, “Make love, not war.” Groovy.

He defined ‘liberating tolerance’ as tolerance for anything coming from the Left and complete Intolerance for anything coming from the Right, which is the attitude we are contending with today. Add the morality of the Bible and true Christian living as a target of Critical Theory and the average, upstanding, hard-working American with good common sense simply doesn’t stand a chance.

In the last 10 to 15 years, America has undergone the greatest and direst transformation in its history. We have literally become a country with an official ideology which is enforced by the power of the state. For instance, we now have ‘hate crimes.’ Don’t ALL crimes stem from hate? Must we really have special laws covering this? When will speaking out become a crime?

Political correctness is here to stay and it will only get stronger as it seeks to destroy the freedoms our forefathers died to provide as well as the culture and way of life we have worked so hard for. We had better wake up and start pushing back for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

The Bible clearly warns us that these attitudes will be part of the last days. I guarantee a time will come in this country when anyone who makes their disagreement with the establishment known publically will be imprisoned or will simply disappear in the night, as those in Russia, Germany, China, North Korea and other totalitarian societies have done over the decades.

Those of you who claim the name of Christ had better get your house in order while there is still time. I, for one, do not plan on hanging around to see these things come to pass. Maranatha!

Acts 17:26-27
King James Version (KJV)

 26And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

 27That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

Quote
Scripture is clear in stating the importance of organized authority to suppress and punish lawlessness (Rom.13:1-7; Titus 3:1; 1Pet.2:13-17). Additionally, the very existence of separate nations promotes freedom and preserves the opportunity for mankind to seek and worship God (impossible under one-world rule: Gen.11:1-9; Acts 17:26-27; cf. also Dan.10:13; Is.14:16-17; Ezek.28; Ps.2; Rev.16).

The new millennium is opening with a series of disturbing trends which see the basic purpose for government (protection of rights, punishment of evil-doers) being undermined, and government being used instead for the advancement of evil purposes. Relativism in law, reluctance to punish criminals, the increasing venality of justice, the intrusion of political and social agendas into the legal arena, the use of law and politics to address social issues in perverse ways with no regard to underlying principles of justice, the blanket application of faulty and un-biblical sociological principles by fiat without regard to individual cases – space does not permit an exhaustive treatment of the issue. It is enough for believers to read the "signs of the times" (e.g., Matt.16:3), and understand the gathering momentum of the satanic forces around them.

It is also important for believers not to react to the point of being caught up in the devil's machinations. Satan is presently experiencing great success in captivating believers and honorable unbelievers with a number of modern socio-political "causes" that appeal to the self-righteous crusading instinct in us all.

While it is understandable that believers should shudder to see many of the degenerate trends engulfing modern society, Satan in his crafty way makes use of this reaction too, and is always thrilled when he can persuade people (especially Christians) out of boredom or lust for an exciting challenge to attack the symptoms of social degeneration rather than being concerned with the root causes and the one true solution.

Turning to Jesus Christ and deepening our relationship with Him through faith in Him and His Word (and the application of that faith to our lives and ministries) is the only way to have "impact" for God. Buying into Satan's propaganda lie #3 (God needs me) and trying to make the world a better place "for God" by one's own self-righteous efforts is not of God and therefore only furthers the devil's purposes.

I had to learn this, hence why I left PPF (along with other reasons), but the reality is that there is nothing we can do to 'better' this world, it IS in satan's hands and it will only get worse as per the Bible which states plainly God's plan for the end.  The only thing I can do is ground myself in His Word and follow the Father's lead as to how I can be useful to Him wherever that may be.  As to the article, it is plain to see why satan wishes to create a one-world 'everything', just as Nimrod did with the tower of Babel...people are easier to control all around and won't have the freedoms they need to seek Christ in order to be saved.

Excellent points, Believer!

And let's not forget too that these evil men in power are DECEIVED above everything else - wicked? Yes, but again, these men(including the 13 families of the Illuminati) got deceived and seduced to begin with. And yes, PPF wants to make you think the Rockefellers, Kissinger, and Rothchilds, among others are THE great Satans of this earth.

What is that verse in John 16 that says they will kick out the believers from the synogogue b/c they think they're doing God's service? Again, these men are deceived.

19 Shocking Examples Of How Political Correctness Is Destroying America

If you say the “wrong thing” in America today, you could be penalized, fired or even taken to court.  Political correctness is running rampant, and it is absolutely destroying this nation.  In his novel 1984, George Orwell imagined a future world where speech was greatly restricted.  He called that the language that the totalitarian state in his novel created “Newspeak”, and it bears a striking resemblance to the political correctness that we see in America right now.  According to Wikipedia, Newspeak is “a reduced language created by the totalitarian state as a tool to limit free thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, peace, etc. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as ‘thoughtcrime.’”  Yes, people are not usually being hauled off to prison for what they are saying just yet, but we are heading down that path.  Every single day, the mainstream media in the United States bombards us with subtle messages about what we should believe and what “appropriate speech” consists of.  Most of the time, most Americans quietly fall in line with this unwritten speech code.  In fact, most of the time we enforce this unwritten speech code among each other.  Those that would dare to buck the system are finding out that the consequences can be rather severe.  The following are 19 shocking examples of how political correctness is destroying America…
 
#1 The Missouri State Fair has permanently banned a rodeo clown from performing just because he wore an Obama mask, and now all of the other rodeo clowns are being required to take “sensitivity training“…
 
But the state commission went further, saying it will require that before the Rodeo Cowboy Association can take part in any future state fair, “they must provide evidence to the director of the Missouri State Fair that they have proof that all officials and subcontractors of the MRCA have successfully participated in sensitivity training.”

This one really pissed me off, this is one of the reasons we have FREE SPEACH, because the King would just kill anyone that oppssed him back in the revolution days. This smacks of that. We have every RIGHT to critisize make fun of or what ever to ANY AND ALL political leaders.
 
#2 Government workers in Seattle have been told that they should no longer use the words “citizen” and “brown bag” because they are potentially offensive.
 
#3 A Florida police officer recently lost his job for calling Trayvon Martin a “thug” on Facebook.
 
#4 “Climate change deniers” are definitely not wanted at the U.S. Department of the Interior.  Interior Secretary Sally Jewell was recently quoted as making the following statement: “I hope there are no climate-change deniers in the Department of Interior”.
 
#5 A professor at Ball State University was recently banned from even mentioning the concept of intelligent design because it would supposedly “violate the academic integrity” of the course that he was teaching.
 
#6 The mayor of Washington D.C. recently asked singer Donnie McClurkin not to attend his own concert because of his views on homosexuality.
 
#7 U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer is calling on athletes marching in the opening ceremonies at the Winter Olympics in Sochi next year to “embarrass” Russian President Vladimir Putin by protesting for gay rights.
 
#8 Chaplains in the U.S. military are being forced to perform gay marriages, even if it goes against their personal religious beliefs.  The few chaplains that have refused to follow orders know that it means the end of their careers.
 
#9 The governor of California has signed a bill into law which will allow transgendered students to use whatever bathrooms and gym facilities that they would like…
 
Transgendered students in California will now have the right to use whichever bathrooms they prefer and join either the boys’ or girls’ sports teams, thanks to landmark legislation signed by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday.
 
The law amends the state’s education code, and stipulates that each student will have access to facilities, sports teams, and programs that are “consistent with his or her gender identity,” rather than the student’s actual biological composition. A male student who self-identifies as female could therefore use the girls’ bathroom, even if he is anatomically male.
 
#10 In San Francisco, authorities have installed small plastic “privacy screens” on library computers so that perverts can continue to exercise their “right” to watch pornography at the library without children being directly exposed to it.
 
#11 In America today, there are many groups that are absolutely obsessed with eradicating every mention of God out of the public sphere.  For example, an elementary school in North Carolina ordered a little six-year-old girl to remove the word “God” from a poem that she wrote to honor her two grandfathers that had served in the Vietnam War.
 
#12 A high school track team was disqualified earlier this year because one of the runners “made a gesture thanking God” once he had crossed the finish line.
 
#13 Earlier this year, a Florida Atlantic University student that refused to stomp on the name of Jesus was banned from class.
 
#14 A student at Sonoma State University was ordered to take off a cross that she was wearing because someone “could be offended“.
 
#15 A teacher in New Jersey was fired for giving his own Bible to a student that did not own one.
 
#16 Volunteer chaplains for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have been banned from using the name of Jesus on government property.
 
#17 According to a new Army manual, U.S. soldiers will now be instructed to avoid “any criticism of pedophilia” and to avoid criticizing “anything related to Islam”.  The following is from a Judicial Watch article…
 
The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”
 
#18 The Obama administration has banned all U.S. government agencies from producing any training materials that link Islam with terrorism.  In fact, the FBI has gone back and purged references to Islam and terrorism from hundreds of old documents.
 
#19 According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, it is illegal for employers to discriminate against criminals because it has a “disproportionate” impact on minorities.
 
It would be hard to overstate the power that all of this relentless “thought training” has on all of us.  And young people are particularly susceptible to the power of suggestion.  If you doubt this, just check out this video of a little boy praying to Barack Obama as if he was a deity…
 
It would be a huge mistake to underestimate the power of the mainstream media in America today.  As I mentioned the other day, Americans watch an average of about 153 hours of television a month.  When Americans go to work or go to school, the conversations that they have with others are mostly based on content that the media feeds them.  And about 90 percent of what we watch on television is controlled by just six gigantic corporations.
 
But the media is not the only source that is telling us what to think.  The truth is that the messaging that comes from all of our major institutions (the government, the media, the education system, etc.) is remarkably consistent.  The establishment wants to control what we say and how we think, and they have a relentless propaganda machine that never stops working.
 
The way that we all see the world has been greatly shaped by the thousands of hours of  “thought training” that we have all received over the years.  Understanding what is being done to us is the first step toward breaking free.

The transgender issue didn't exist b/w the 70's and other years prior to recent years, but nonetheless remember Title IX which was pushed by the feminist movement in the 70's, which demanded schools get equal funding for boys and girls athletic programs. And if the girls athletic programs didn't get equal funding, then the boys athletic programs wouldn't get their funding. Ultimately, over the long haul, it slowly but surely diminished the influence of boys athletic programs over the years, which has been the main agenda of the feminist movement here.

Also - for those that have listened to "New Order Barbarians", one of the depopulation agendas that was talked about by this guy(who attended a closed door meeting with a former Planned Parenthood director, who gave out every little NWO agenda), was to get girls athletic programs into high gear, so that over the long haul they would see themselves as these "model" athletes, and NOT mothers.

Now wait a humanistic second! You cannot have it both ways. Either you identify as male or female, SO, you must use either the men's room or the ladies room, but not both.  Roll Eyes

Now if they are truly hermaphrodite, MAYBE.

Extreme Political Correctness Is Making Public School Education Pure Hell For America’s Children

Political correctness is taking over America, and this is especially true when it comes to our public schools.  In the United States today, our public schools are being transformed into “Big Brother” training centers where virtually everything that our children do inside and even outside of school is being monitored, tracked, scrutinized and put into permanent records.  As you will read about below, some U.S. public schools are now even monitoring the social media accounts of their students and are ready to pounce on any perceived violation.  “Zero tolerance” policies have been implemented at public schools nationwide, and if a student does break “the rules”, it can result in immediate arrest and it can end up haunting them for the rest of their lives.  Meanwhile, the content of the “educational instruction” that our children are receiving continues to decline.  At this point, public schools in American have become little more than government indoctrination centers, and a steady stream of politically correct propaganda is being endlessly pumped into their heads.  Our children may not know how to read, write or do math very well, but they sure do know how to let others do their thinking for them.  As a result, most of our public school students are dumb as a rock, and as you will see below a new study has found that U.S. adults “are dumber than the average human”.

Political correctness in our schools has become so pervasive that it has even crept into the playgrounds.  For example, footballs and baseballs have been deemed “dangerous” at one middle school in Long Island and have been permanently banned…

    As CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan reported Monday, officials at Weber Middle School in Port Washington are worried that students are getting hurt during recess. Thus, they have instituted a ban on footballs, baseballs, lacrosse balls, or anything that might hurt someone on school grounds.

But if that was the worst our kids had to put up with, they could certainly survive it.

Unfortunately, these days a single politically incorrect mistake by your kid could result in an arrest and being hauled out of school in handcuffs.  Just consider the following examples from a recent article by John Whitehead…

    These days, it is far too easy to rattle off the outrageous examples of zero tolerance policy run amok in our nation’s schools. A 14-year-old student arrested for texting in class. Three middle school aged boys in Florida thrown to the ground by police officers wielding rifles, who then arrested them for goofing off on the roof of the school. A 9-year-old boy suspended for allegedly pointing a toy at a classmate and saying “bang, bang.” Two 6-year-old students in Maryland suspended for using their fingers as imaginary guns in a schoolyard game of cops and robbers. A 12-year-old New York student hauled out of school in handcuffs for doodling on her desk with an erasable marker. An 8-year-old boy suspended for making his hand into the shape of a gun, in violation of the school district’s policy prohibiting “playing with invisible guns.” A 17-year-old charged with a felony for keeping his tackle box in his car parked on school property, potentially derailing his chances of entering the Air Force. Two seventh graders in Virginia suspended for the rest of the school year for playing with airsoft guns in their own yard before school.

This is the constant danger that is looming over the heads of our public school students today.  And what makes this even worse are the “zero tolerance” policies that have been put in place all over the country.  It does not matter if your kid is a straight A student that has never done a single thing wrong.  If your kid breaks the politically correct rules, the hammer will be brought down on your kid very hard.  And according to Whitehead, many schools are now continually monitoring the social media accounts of their students for any “violations”…

    Despite a general consensus that zero tolerance policies have failed to have any appreciable impact on student safety, schools have doubled down on these policies to the detriment of children all across the nation. Indeed, the zero tolerance mindset is so entrenched among school administrators all over America that we are now seeing school officials reaching into the personal lives of students to police their behavior at all times. For example, 13,000 students in the Glendale Unified School District in California are now being subjected to constant social media monitoring by school officials. Superintendent Richard Sheehan has hired private firm Geo Listening to analyze the public social media posts of students both off and on campus. Whether on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, or any other social media platform, students will have their posts and comments analyzed for evidence of “bullying, cyber-bullying, hate and shaming activities, depression, harm and self harm, self hate and suicide, crime, vandalism, substance abuse and truancy.”

    Unfortunately, the Glendale program is simply one component of a larger framework in which all student activity is treated as an open book by school administrators. What we are witnessing is a paradigm shift in American society, in which no personal activity is safe from the prying eyes of government agents and their corporate allies. Every decision and action, no matter how innocent, is scrutinized, analyzed, filed, stored, and eventually held against you when those in power feel like it.

You can read the remainder of Whitehead’s outstanding article right here.

So does it make you feel safer knowing that school authorities are “monitoring” your kids at all times?

And while they are sitting in the classroom, the goal is to “shape young minds” to accept the politically correct agenda of the progressives.

If parents only knew what was going on in these classrooms they would be absolutely shocked.  For example, one sixth grade class in Arkansas was recently given an assignment to “revise” the Bill of Rights because it has become “outdated”…

    Sixth graders at the Bryant School District in Arkansas were given an assignment to “revise” the “outdated” Bill of Rights by deleting and replacing two amendments, using the “War on Terror” and the Patriot Act as a guide.

    The worksheet, which is the first Constitutional assignment of the school year, tells students that they will be on a “National Revised Bill of Rights Task Force” who will “prioritize, prune, and add amendments” for a “Revised Bill of Rights.”

    “The government of the United States is currently revisiting the Bill of Rights,” the assignment states. “They have determined that it is outdated and may not remain in its current form any longer.”

Is that the kind of stuff that you want your kid to be taught?

Meanwhile, the reading, writing and math skills of U.S. students continue to decline.  The following is an excerpt from a recent article by Dave Hodges…

    For the most part, the end product our schools are producing is grossly substandard. SAT reading scores have declined to 40 year lows and there is no sign of a rebound. Since reading is the key to all knowledge, we are sending our children to a gunfight with a butter knife. Before the defenders of the public school system raise their voices in opposition, everyone needs to realize that our school children have been under attack for decades. Even the best educators have referred to our public education system as “the deliberate dumbing down of America.”

The results of our foolish national experiment with progressive education are predictable.  A brand new international study just released by the U.S. Department of Education revealed that “U.S. adults are dumber than the average human“.  The following is how USA Today described the findings of the study…

    Americans have been hearing for years that their kids are lagging behind the rest of the developed world in skills. Now it’s the adults’ turn for a reality check.

    A first-ever international comparison of the labor force in 23 industrialized nations shows that Americans ages 16 to 65 fall below international averages in basic problem-solving, reading and math skills, with gaps between the more- and less-educated in the USA larger than those of many other countries.

What is the solution?

Well, it would be nice if our public schools would stop doing all of the politically correct garbage and would start focusing on reading, writing and math again.

But we all know that is not going to happen.

So it is up to individual parents to make the choices that are going to be right for their own children.  Our kids are not going to be getting a high quality education in the public schools, but they are not going to be able to be successful in life without one.

And we're seeing this in these modern-day churches - with their corrupt bible versions, Emergent/Postmodernism doctrine, secular Sunday School materials, etc, they're all but sending everyone to the spiritual warfare battle with a wet noodle-arm, and not the true sword.

Judgment must begin at the house of the Lord...

Texas Restaurant Chain Touts 'Politically Incorrect' Holiday Policy

A good story for once

One restaurant chain in Texas is warning customers that it may offend them by being too "politically incorrect" this holiday season.

"I just got tired of all the news of everybody having to be politically correct," Berryhill Baja Grill CEO Jeff Anon told ABC News.

The chain restaurant posted signs outside its nine Texas locations about two weeks ago that read, "Notice: This store is politically incorrect. We say 'Merry Christmas,' 'God bless America.' We salute our flag and give thanks to our troops, police officers and firefighters. If this offends you, you are welcome to leave. In God we trust.

Anon said the last straw for him was the criticism that erupted in social media last month over Starbucks' red holiday-themed Christmas cups.

"There’s nothing wrong with saying 'Merry Christmas' in lieu of 'Happy Holidays.' When people say 'Merry Christmas,' they’re being nice," Anon said, adding that he's Jewish. "They’re not trying to be politically incorrect or have religious beliefs."

The restaurants have been decorated with festive holiday decor, including Hanukkah decorations. Anon said that for every negative response to the signs, there are "hundreds" of positive ones.



"The outpouring of support has been absolutely terrific. We’re actually getting a lot of requests from people to get the sign," he said. "Some people say you shouldn’t take religion into the workplace. We’re not trying to bring religion into the workplace. It has nothing to do with religion. It’s the spirit of the holidays."

John Cleese: Political Correctness Will Lead To An Orwellian Nightmare

ohn Cleese says political correctness has gone too far, especially on America's college campuses, where he will no longer go to perform. As BigThink reports, the very essence of his trade — comedy — is criticism and that not infrequently means hurt feelings. But protecting everyone from negative emotion all the time is not only impractical (one can't control the feelings of another), but also improper in a free society.

Cleese, having worked with psychiatrist Robin Skynner, says there may even be something more sinister behind the insistence to be always be politically correct.

"If you start to say we mustn't, we mustn't criticize or offend them then humor is gone. With humor goes a sense of proportion. And then as far as I'm concerned you're living in 1984."
157 seconds of Python-esque reality from Mr Cleese on just how silly all this PC-ness really is...

12 Signs That America Has Become A Politically-Correct Madhouse – End Of The American Dream

What in the world has happened to the United States? We are rapidly getting to the point where political correctness is in danger of becoming our national religion. Of course most people would not even call it a “religion”, but for most Americans this unwritten set of rules shapes everything that they think, do and say. Many had been hoping that the spell of political correctness would be broken by the election of Donald Trump, but that obviously has not happened. The forces of political correctness still have a stranglehold on our education system, on all forms of entertainment, on our legal system, and on most of the politicians in both political parties.

The unwritten rules of political correctness are shifting and changing all the time, and if you don’t keep up with them the penalties can be extremely severe.

If you do or say the wrong thing at the wrong time, you could lose your friends, you could lose your job, and you could potentially even lose your reputation.

In fact, there have been numerous people over the past year that have been publicly crucified in the court of public opinion for doing or saying something that was not politically-correct.

And with each passing day, the forces of political correctness take a little bit more ground. The following are 12 signs that America has become a politically-correct madhouse…

#1 According to Time Magazine, a book entitled “Santa’s Husband” will be released on October 10th by a major U.S. publisher that depicts Santa as “a gay man in an interracial relationship”.

#2 A middle school in North Hollywood is facing substantial budget cuts because they have too many non-minority students…

    Outrage has grown at Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood, as the school faces layoffs and increased class sizes due to a law limiting funds for schools with a higher white student body.

    The Los Angeles Unified School District provides more funding for schools where the white population is below 30 percent.

    In a letter to parents, the district noted the highly regarded middle school had been above the percentage for the past couple years.

#3 According to Michael Moore, historians will mark “March 28, 2017, as the day the extinction of human life on earth began” because Donald Trump has rolled back Obama’s climate change regulations.

#4 One of my readers just sent me a photo that his 16-year-old son took at school. It is a photo of a slide that was being projected on to a large screen at the front of his classroom that contained this message: “Polls show that young people today are more accepting of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people than ever before. Why do you think that is?”

#5 An elementary school in California has banned the game of “tag” because it is too dangerous.

#6 At one high school in Iowa, students were recently denounced as “racists” for dressing up in red, white and blue for a basketball game.

#7 In North Carolina, as early as the first grade a “gender unicorn” is being used to teach children “about sexual orientation and gender identity“…

    Just last year in our home city of Charlotte, North Carolina, the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System used the “gender unicorn” to teach students—as young as first grade—all about sexual orientation and gender identity. This cute, little, fury animal was used to promote the idea that sexual orientation asks the question, “Who do you go to bed with?” while gender identity asks the question, “Who do you go to bed as?” And these can be fluid, of course. Kids can change whenever and however they want.

#8 According to Dr. Michael Brown, bathroom scales have been taken out of the gym at one college campus for a very strange reason: “Administrators at Carleton University have removed the bathroom scales from the campus gym, claiming that ‘being fixated on weight’ does not ‘have any positive affect [sic] on your health.'”

#9 A Christian university in Minnesota has told professors “to stop using terms such as ‘man’ and ‘mankind’ because they are too masculine“.

#10 Snickers bars will soon be sold in rainbow wrappers “as part of a pro-LGBT ad campaign“.

#11 A 32-year-old man will now compete in international volleyball events as a transgender woman, and may end up qualifying for the Olympics as a female athlete…

    The now 32-year old says volleyball has been the constant in a life full of changes. In January, she was just approved by USA Volleyball to compete as a woman. Before that, she was required to play in the men’s division at all USAV sanctioned events.

    USAV requires transgender women to undergo hormone replacement therapy consistently for at least one year — with proper documentation — and they also have to change their identification, like passports and birth certificates, to female. Before, some organizations, including the Olympics, would require trans athletes to have sex reassignment surgery.

#12 Planned Parenthood has killed millions of children, but nobody from that organization ever seems to get into trouble with the law. Instead, two activists that exposed the fact that Planned Parenthood is auctioning off baby parts to the highest bidder have been charged with 15 felonies in the state of California.

In this type of environment, people like me are becoming dinosaurs. If you follow my work on a regular basis, you know that I am not afraid to do or say things that might offend some people.

Of course I am not actually trying to offend anyone, but I won’t let the forces of political correctness dictate what I can or cannot say about a particular topic.

Ultimately, political correctness is a tool that progressives use to silence the opposition.

They want to make it a crime to think or say anything that they might find offensive, and to a substantial degree it is working.

Our founders intended for us to permanently have a right to free speech, but now we have moved into a time when saying the wrong thing can get you brutally persecuted.

I would like to be optimistic that we can start to roll back the forces of political correctness, but as I noted at the beginning of this article, they have control of our schools, our courts, our entertainment and most of our political leaders.

But of course we can never give up the fight, because if they win life in America will ultimately become a complete and total nightmare.
