Antifa Is the Natural Product of Our Educational System

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Whatever the psychological profiles of Antifa members, almost all of them share one thing: They went to American schools. And those schools, with only a few notable exceptions, talked down and continue to talk down the United States to one degree or another from kindergarten through Ph.D. Antifa members are therefore only doing what they have been taught all along, getting rid of a cancer called the United States. Antifa is an excruciating public manifestation of a very deep infection that has metastasized throughout our society from the schools. If things don't change, it will get worse.

Our Educational System Makes US Land of Useful Idiots

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

For now, the excessive violence and destruction coupled with absurd socialist legislation that could have been written in Caracas may prevent the left from assuming immediate power and keep Trump in office for one more term. But give this educational system a few more years and we will be past the point of no return. We will fully be a nation of “useful idiots.” No matter who wins the election, what's needed now is a movement to take the schools back from the teachers’ unions, the politicians, and the so-called educational experts and return them to the people they are meant for—the students and their families.

The Liberal Arts Weren’t Murdered — They Committed Suicide

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Universities are simply burying liberal-arts majors that were already killed off not by bottom-line-minded state legislators but by the choices of either students or faculty or by university policies, or by combinations of all three. Over the past few years, lots of employers have privately concluded that today’s graduating liberal-arts majors are quite confident and yet so often poorly educated. Or worse, those hiring were turned off by the strange combination of youthful ignorance and arrogance. Employers had clearly no desire to be enlightened by fresh graduates who were entirely unaware that their inductive skills were suspect or nonexistent.

Undermining America

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

If the leftists can convince the nation that men such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were good-for-nothing slave-owning racists, then their ideas can be more easily trashed. We find the greatest assaults on our founding documents on the nation's college campuses. The American people need to stop being sheeple and put a halt to the undermining of our nation taking place in our institutions of higher learning.

When colleges became echo chambers of the politically correct

Jeff Sessions, Washington Times

A national recommitment to free speech on campus is long overdue. And action to ensure First Amendment rights is overdue. We have staked a country on the principle that robust and even contentious debate is how we discover truth and resolve the most intractable problems before us. This is the heritage that we have been given and which we must protect.

Here’s How Anti-Conservative Academic Discrimination Works

David French, National Review

Academics have redefined and refocused disciplines to such an extent that they essentially exclude conservative inquiry. Thus, they can honestly say they’ve never discussed politics in hiring decisions because the discipline itself has narrowed so much that it closes itself to conservatives.

Will Fascism Come to America through Its Colleges and Universities?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The biggest cowards in our country today are many, if not most, of our college and university administrators followed closely by a fair amount of their faculty.  They are allowing their institutions to be taken over by a monolithic world view that is increasingly totalitarian and antithetical to the diversity of opinion on which the search for truth depends.

Report: Chinese Government Has Placed 100+ Facilities In US Universities

Christopher C. Hull, Daily Caller

The Chinese government has quietly set up over 100 teaching and research centers (Confucius Institutes) to promote China’s point of view on college campuses across the U.S., and operates over 500 analogous programs at American K-12 schools, according to a report released by the National Association of Scholars (NAS).
