Posting comments is at my discretion. This is my site and I can do anything I want with it. Sometimes I allow the ridiculous because I know readers will deal with them. Sometimes I just don’t feel like explaining the obvious to people who don’t care.
I’m really good at telling who is here for a conversation and who isn’t. Those who bloviate get deleted.
The comment below was posted to the Future Teachers story yesterday. https://blnnews.com/2021/06/24/future-illinois-teachers-will-be-trained-to-teach-critical-race-theory/
This guy tried twice, both were deleted. He doesn’t understand teaching doesn’t have to be titled “critical race theory” to be CRT.
Here’s the facts Dave:
The purpose of education is preparing young minds to be productive adults. Race or culture plays no part in creating productive citizens unless you want them indoctrinated to believe they need government to help them. Only one political party believes that and union dues from teachers play a big part in funding that party. It’s no surprise some teachers would create democrats instead of teaching without bias.
The kids need taught early they are capable of achieving whatever goals they set for themselves because they live in America. I spoke at the District 87 School Board meeting, not because I wanted to – I had to. Since I was the one filming there is no video. When I mentioned anyone can succeed in America there were loud groans from the kids. They are not only being taught the fake history of the 1619 Project, they are being taught they have no future. At the Unit 5 School Board meeting many kids didn’t participate in the Pledge of Allegiance. We have people on both local city council who do not say the Pledge of Allegiance.
We used to have one common value that glued the country together: We were proud to be Americans. Many kids no longer believe that because of the lies they are being taught in government schools.
People from all over the world immigrate legally to America for one reason: Freedom. If you have never witnessed a naturalization ceremony, watch the first 20 minutes of the below. Have your kids watch the whole thing!
Did you know the Star Spangled Banner has two verses? Both are on this video.
25 people from 15 countries came to America to be Americans. They said the Pledge of Allegiance. They denounced their previous country and it’s government to be Free in America.
Dave Stafford: The ceremony was the same for all of them. There was no Culturally Responsive oath. If you don’t understand dividing people by race, culture, or skin color destroys freedom and liberty, please attend the next naturalization ceremony and see what America is really all about. America is the shining beacon on the hill, the light dims every time a kid is taught this isn’t the country where anything is possible.
