A Learning Experience For Me

June 28, 2009

“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”
— Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

Harry S. Truman was a beloved, respected U.S. President who earned the thanks of a grateful nation for guiding them out of World War II and for helping to start the 50’s boom.

The McCarthy witch hunts resulted in the unjust persecutions of thousands of innocent men, women, and children…such as Julius and Ethel Rosenberg…and plunged the nation into a climate of fear and paranoia.

Homosexuals are born that way.

Until 1492, it was widely believed throughout Europe that the world was flat.

The Nazi Party was a Christian organization founded by a self-loathing Jew named Adolph Hitler.

Racist slave owners in the South demanded laws that would declare a black person be counted as only 3/5 of a white person.

Indians were the first humans to settle on the American Continent, and they lived in harmonious balance with nature and the Earth.

America and Europe were staid, puritanical, misogynistic societies…until Women’s Suffrage in the 1920’s and The Sexual Revolution of the 1960’s awakened society to the ideas of women’s equality and open sexual expression.

Jews immigrated to the Middle East when Israel was founded in 1948. Palestinians, however, have lived in that region for thousands of years.

The U.S. Constitution recognized slavery as part of American culture…thus America is the only nation that must truly atone for slavery.

All of the above comments have something in common.
One…they are some of what I was taught in public school, from grade school to college.
And two…they are all lies.

One could argue as to the level of falsehood each comment represents, and whether or not it constitutes a malicious attempt to obfuscate the students, but I believe that the real issue is this: why are such lies being taught in our public schools?
And yes, I do believe that lies is the most appropriate terminology; to suggest that such information is merely inaccurate is to infer that the information will be corrected upon discovery of the truth…since I have discovered that the above comments are still being taught in our schools today, “inaccurate” seems inadequate to explain the issue.
So, again…why? What purpose does it serve to use millions of taxpayer dollars to give students in America a substandard education? I’m afraid that I cannot answer that question. I have only theories as to why. I can imagine that you do, too. So, let me tell you mine, please…

“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
— Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

It has always troubled me that nobody seemed to make an issue over the fact that so many of the most radical, most hateful, most pro-Socialist, most rabidly anti-American leftists of the 1960’s (notably a couple of members of the Weather Underground and the Black Panthers) developed careers in public education, notably on college campuses. If one were of a suspicious nature, one might think that their pseudo-revolutionary agenda wasn’t diminished with the passage of time…they simply channeled their efforts from trying to bring about change overnight into trying to bring about change in future generations.
Doesn’t anybody see what’s wrong with this?
I mean, if the Nazi party was defeated in WWII, but a bunch of known Nazi sympathizers became teachers…and continued to push a pro-Nietzsche, anti-Semitic political viewpoint to their students, couched in the guise of education…how long would this stand?
If a large group of Ku Klux Klan followers suddenly acquired their teaching licenses, en masse, and…even occasionally…sneaked a few “White Power” or “Mud-People” viewpoints into their daily math class…would you allow your children to remain in such a class?
Yet, never a month goes by when I don’t read or hear about a Ward Churchill advocating the idea of throwing live grenades in order to “frag” military officers…
(NOTE: This actually happened in my hometown of Portland, OR on June 23, 2005!)
…or a William Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn, Susan Rosenberg, Nancy Hamilton, or Malauna Karenga…known and convicted Leftist terrorists, criminals, and killers…acquiring the title of “professor” at some prestigious university…
…or a Todd Gitlin, Victor Navasky, or Michael Berube making a deliberate effort to excise any & all college professors who admit to having a conservative political viewpoint…
…or a Mary Daly, a homosexual professor at Boston College, who refuses to allow any men to enroll in her classes…
…or a David Halperin, another homosexual professor at University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, who uses taxpayer money to teach a class called “How To Be Gay: Male Homosexuality and Initiation” where students are required to frequently watch Gay porn in class…
…or a Cornell West, Henry Louis Gates, or Manning Marable using their podium at the front of their classrooms to attack and disparage America and the white people who live there.
Could somebody explain how these propagandists-in-professors-clothing are any different from the hypothetical Nazi & KKK teachers? Because I see no difference at all.

“Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever”
— Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

They say that some people wish to leave behind a legacy after they die. Frankly, I feel that the re-education of our society to reflect the same political values that were so admired in such places as the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Fascisti Italy, Cuba, North Korea, and the like…that doesn’t seem very appealing to me.
However, all is far from lost…in my opinion, of course.
My statement about the above comments are not merely an opinion of mine…their falsehoods can be, and have been, proven by some very notable authorities. And that is the reason for typing this blog: there is a tool that can be used to remedy this situation…and you’re looking right at it.
As I type this, I think back to all of the times that I received an e-mail, being mass-circulated, that listed the many taxes that have been placed on our Social Security since the 1950’s…and the particular political party responsible for taxing our Social Security into oblivion (hint: they call themselves Democrats!).
The many different e-mails I received after 9/11, all about the same subject: A column written by Toronto journalist Gordon Sinclair titled “The Americans“.
It seems that never a week goes by that I don’t receive at least one e-mail pointing out the foibles of the Left, the virtues of those with a religious bent, or the audacity of hope-bringer Barack Obama.
(wordplay, folks!)
And the amount of e-mails documenting the “evil” that was the Clinton Empire could’ve been used to wallpaper every house on my street!
For the life of me, I cannot recall the last time that I received an e-mail that professed a Left-Wing or Liberal viewpoint…and I do know plenty of Liberals.
Recent blogs and Breitbart Columns have discussed how the Right is either losing the so-called culture war…or how we aren’t even putting up a fight. Well, this little thing called “The Internet” has opened up new avenues of communication that were unprecedented during my school days. I remember quite vividly the day my class was learning about McCarthyism and The Red Scare…after listening to the teacher and reading the textbooks documenting the horrors of the HUAC “witch hunts”, I actually had the nerve to ask my teacher “Yes, but were there any Communist spies in key positions of the US Government?
She said no. She said McCarthy made it all up.
In response, for our written report on the subject I submitted an 11-page typed essay…thoroughly researched and vetted…detailing how the Soviet Union did indeed have several paid spies and agents, including Alger Hiss, Dean Acheson, Laughlin Currie, I.F. Stone, Maurice Halperin, and Jane Zlatowski, among many others.
My teacher gave me an “F”…with a note on the border, in red ink, calling me a “lying propagandist“.
This was a true story…8th grade, Mrs. Reilley.
It took me weeks to research such information….now it can take mere minutes. All that is needed is a curiosity, a direction to look towards, and the typing of the keyboard.

“Literature must become party literature. Down with unpartisan litterateurs! Down with the superman of literature! Literature must become a part of the general cause of the proletariat.”
— Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

With respect to Messrs. Breitbart and Paul Weyrich, among others, all of whom decried the alleged failure of the Right to revolt against Leftist indoctrination via mass media, I believe that our “revolution” is happening right now…right here, on the Web. Those on the Left tend to congregate together, communing at simpatico sites and looking for submissions that do less to inform and more to assuage their massive yet fragile egos. Those on the Right…at least, the ones with whom I associate…seek out new sites and new information. This, I believe, is the burgeoning fulcrum with which the overbearing Mainstream Media and their Socialist sycophants in academia can finally be toppled. Remember, it wasn’t a massive Watergate-style expose which toppled the news titan that was once Dan Rather…it was a guy, sitting at his computer in his jammies, blogging on a site he called “Little Green Footballs“.
Long has the accusation of Liberal / Left-Wing bias in the Media been trumpeted. If we (allegedly) can’t beat them at their own “game”, or even bother to play their “game” in the first place, then it’s time we do what the self-reliant have done in America for the past 200-plus years: Play our own “game”. The Left will cry foul and be the whiners as we beat them at our own “game”…while their “game” goes the way of the Dodo bird: killed by its own stupidity.
It will be particularly enjoyable to see the bastions of the old “game” fall by the wayside.

“The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses”
— Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

They’ll never see us coming…they’ll be too busy admiring themselves in the reflection of the MSNBC teleprompter…or pleasuring themselves over a picture of Barack Obama.
My apologies, Andrew Breitbart, but what you see & hear isn’t “whining”…it’s “warning”. It’s a message to the rest of the world: we’re calling shenanigans to this…now seek out the truth!
I can’t think of anything that would infuriate the Left more than to use a famous quote from one of their Leftist heroes to describe their downfall: “Power to the people!

“The goal of Socialism is Communism.”
— Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

Spread the news.
