The Pantagraph Opinion Page continues to be an endless source of entertainment. Orchestrated Letters to the Editor are claiming voting rights locally have been violated. The election is more than a year away and normal everyday people are writing letters asking you to vote for their candidate? Keep in mind: Repeat a lie often enough and some people will believe it. We get to hear the lies for more than a year! The election isn’t until November 2018.
Sunday a guest editorial cried about attacks on higher education. Looks like the Pantagraph editor may have even contributed, but it’s hard to tell from the byline. See the editorial here: http://www.pantagraph.com/news/opinion/columns/article_0495f26d-4527-51c6-a000-c3b8dfa29c25.html
The writers forgot to include they work at ISU.
David Horowitz must really be effective! He’s blamed for turning public opinion against the indoctrination that’s more than obvious on college campuses. If you don’t know, Horowitz’s parents (teachers) were members of the Communist Party USA. After years of calling himself a Marxist and being part of the far left progressive movement, he educated himself. When Horowitz realized what his side was doing, he walked away and eventually founded the Freedom Center. Nobody can recognize a Marxist like a guy who used to be one. That’s why he’s the target of the Editorial.
The story claims professors might lean “slightly left”. (Stop laughing now). Martin Luther King would be appalled at the speakers ISU invites to celebrate his work. King refused to be victim, ISU promotes being a victim. Social Justice means people who worked for what they have MUST hand it to people who didn’t work for it. Funny how Social Justice sounds a lot like Marxism.
Politicizing education is what the writers decry. I wonder if they know any conservative kids on campus. There are a couple, but most aren’t. Remember when conservatives had their posters defaced? More Hate On The ISU Campus/ and Hate Is Very Alive In Normal
Maybe the writers missed some recent surveys of college kids:
The writers also claim nobody teaches at a university to get rich. Click HERE to see the MONTHLY pensions of ISU retirees. Hint: Former President Bowman is raking in $32,185.46. The first 50 are all of $10,000 a month.
The story ends with this statement:
Maybe the writers can explain why college kids lined up to vote for Socialist Bernie Sanders.
Do colleges ever teach “Free is Never Free”?
Is a basic understanding of the Constitution required for graduation? Shouldn’t EVERY citizens have a basic understanding of the document our society is governed by? The writers of this article would say no.
David Horowitz is just somebody they chose to blame for their demise. Kids are realizing the cost isn’t worth it anymore. The fictional rant is good for a few laughs though. It sounds somewhat like the death squeals of a dying pig.
