School Propaganda Backfires: Today's High School Students Are Most Conservative in 70 Years

Numerous studies have confirmed that the high school students of today are the most politically conservative generation in the past 70 years, in spite of -- or perhaps because of -- the incessant leftist and Cultural Marxist propaganda disseminated through the public school system.

The first main survey to support this conclusion was conducted by marketing firm The Guild, which interviewed 2,000 14- and 15-year-olds late last year. The conclusions of the survey were shocking. 59 percent of "Generation Z" held conservative views on same-sex marriage, "transgender rights", and the legalization of marijuana.

"According to the report, which was published in The Times, 59 percent of Generation Z respondents said they leaned toward the conservative end of the spectrum. Only the Silent Generation was more conservative than this group.
By comparison, 83 percent of Millennials and 85 percent of Generation X respondents described themselves as “quite liberal” or “very liberal” in their views."

Another survey, conducted by the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, found that during the 2016 presidential campaign, now-President Donald J. Trump led "Crooked" Hillary Clinton by 14 percentage points among all high school students, age 14-18. Among males, Trump led by 25 percent. Further, Hillary's "woman card" did not appear to be effective - Trump still edged her out by three points among female students.

The devastation for Crooked Hillary was complete among White males - she only managed to secure support from 8% of respondents, while President Trump was supported by 58%.

This will be a major problem for whoever the Democratic nominee is in 2020. The Democrats have counted on the schools to deliver them the "youth vote" - however, this strategy looks like it is no longer working. School propaganda has backfired as young people begin to question the "educators" and "experts" and begin to think for themselves.

Many liberal teachers and other school employees often boast about their alleged power to "change the world." A popular mantra is "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world", attributed to South African revolutionary Nelson Mandela. By the way, this quote is eerily similar to the statement "education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands", once said by tyrannical Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

First, when leftist teachers refer to "Education", they are not actually referring to education, but ideological indoctrination. Secondly, their aggressive political "education" is definitely changing the world, but it is having the opposite effect than they intend. While they intended to indoctrinate the next generation to be loyal globalists and supporters of the homosexual and transgender agendas, "Generation Z" is more nationalistic, more conservative, and more pro-Trump than any other generation since World War II.

Great job. We commend you, educational establishment. Keep up the great work!

VICTORY: President Trump Abandons Obama Transgender Bathroom Diktat

President Trump's Justice Department stated today that they will no longer defend the Obama administration diktat on transgender bathrooms in public schools, which would have lead to mixed-gender facilities such as locker rooms and bathrooms.

The so-called guidance has already been blocked from being implemented nationwide by a federal judge in Texas last August. 

According to the most fake name in news, CNN, a hearing had been scheduled on the Obama administration's appeal, but the Justice Department canceled the hearing, signaling that both parties were in agreement that no law requires schools to open up girls' bathrooms to boys who allegedly "identify as female."

By the logic of Ryan McElveen and his comrade Ryan Sawyers, both leftist school board members in Northern Virginia, this move should shut down all transgender school bathroom policies nationwide. In May 2015, the Obama Education Department sent a letter to school boards claiming that Title IX (a law protecting against discrimination against girls' sports) required schools to allow students to use bathrooms and locker rooms based on their so-called gender identity. Many liberals, including the majority of the Fairfax School Board, passed on this letter as settled law and quickly jammed through radical policies with numerous far-reaching impacts, ranging from freedom of speech and religion to personal privacy.

If the Obama administration's position on a policy issue must be adhered to by the entire nation, then why does the same not apply to the Trump administration?

In any case, this action signifies that the Trump Administration, however moderate it may be on issues related to the radical homosexual agenda, will no longer attempt to abuse the power of the federal government to force a left-wing political agenda on our nation.

The Case for Book Banning

Whenever reasonable measures are introduced to give parents more control over what messages their children are exposed to at school, the left always reverts to hysterics about "book banning" and "censorship." However, these arguments are frivolous, intellectually dishonest, and without merit.

First of all, laws and policies (such as Virginia's proposed law allowing parents to block their children from reading sexually explicit content in their public school classrooms) do not constitute book banning. All these policies do is require schools to notify parents if their children will be reading sexually explicit material as part of official, formal class instruction. They do not affect what students can read in the school library, or what can be informally taught in class. This is why such policies are too weak - they simply serve to placate parents, and don't actually do much to prevent explicit "literature" from getting into the hands of children against the will of their parents.

There is absolutely no problem with a public institution, especially one to which parents entrust their children, banning books or material that goes against public morality. According to the Hyde Amendment, public funds cannot support the practice of elective abortion. The reason for this law's existence is because abortion is considered morally wrong by many, if not most, American taxpayers. To force them to pay for a procedure that they morally abhor, would be, in the words of Thomas Jefferson, "sinful and tyrannical."

In light of this, why is it so radical to demand that a public school, also financed with taxpayer dollars, not possess and distribute books which violate the parents' (and taxpayers') beliefs? For example, there are 22 copies of the book There is No Dog, written by atheist author Meg Rosoff, in Fairfax County, Virginia school libraries. This is a book that contains very explicit content depicting God engaged in sexual activity. There is No Dog has no place in a public school library.

Finally, school systems are already engaged in book banning and censorship, even though they don't want to admit it. According to the American Library Association, The Bible is the 7th most challenged book in public school libraries. Student-led Middle School Bible studies were recently banned by a Missouri district, on the ridiculous justification that serving donuts at the meeting constituted "pressur[ing] students into participating in prayer." Schools often tyrannically suspend or expel students for little more than dissenting from the Current Truth on issues of gender and sexuality.

Closer to home, in Fairfax County, a collection of books that conservative students and families offered to donate for free to West Springfield High School was rejected by the library. The stated reason was that the books, some of which opposed same-sex marriage, might offend students who identified as homosexual. But wouldn't There is No Dog, of which 22 copies exist throughout the Fairfax District, be offensive to Christian students?Does that matter?

However, these instances of explicit, open censorship of political and religious dissidents do not encompass the entire picture. Leftist school employees, through selection bias, "censor" or "ban" books every time they select new materials for their library. Right-wing political viewpoints are severely underrepresented in public school classrooms - is this "book banning?" It has the identical effect.

The fact is, both "hard book banning" and "soft book banning" is actively practiced by the left in public school systems across the nation. Classic books such as Huckleberry Finn and To Kill A Mockingbird have been banned because they contain certain words which might make "racial minorities" feel uncomfortable.

In conclusion, schools have an absolute moral right to "ban books" if they go against the values that parents are attempting to instill in their children. In fact, it is a duty. Failure to adequately regulate the material that they expose children to is simply child abuse and a violation of the (misguided) trust that parents place in the school system.

School systems must ban religiously blasphemous, gratuitously violent, or sexually explicit books from their libraries and classrooms immediately. Some may object to this proposal due to the possibility of legal challenges. However, the court system, including the Supreme Court, is not the Supreme Leader - they do not have absolute authority to decide what is right or wrong. There is a moral and constitutional duty to resist immoral or unlawful judgements by a higher authority - called the Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates. Judicial supremacy is a fiction. Local authorities, such as school boards, have the right and responsibility to support families and their values, not undermine them.

Arlington, VA Teacher Deletes Twitter Account After Calling All Trump Voters "Idiots"

Wakefield High School teacher Douglas Burns has deleted his Twitter account, @MrBurnsWHS, after it was reported that he had made numerous derogatory statements about Trump supporters as well as promoted drug use.

From ResistanceMedia.org, Feb. 1, 2017:

In a series of tweets, Wakefield High School (located in Arlington County, Virginia) teacher Douglas Burns attacked President Donald J. Trump, using profanity in some of them.
Caption: Teacher Douglas Burns calls President Trump an "asshole" in a tweet posted Jan. 29. 
Caption: Also on Jan. 29, Burns compared Pres. Trump to "Fueher" Adolf Hitler.
Caption: On Inauguration Day,  teacher Douglas Burns praised an anti-Trump protest group distributing free marijuana, claiming that marijuana use is "already making America great again."
Caption: In a Dec. 22 tweet, Burns again compared Pres. Trump to Adolf Hitler.
Caption: A teacher at Wakefield High School calls President Trump's victory in the election "an act of terror."
Caption: In a post-election tweet, Wakefield High School teacher Douglas Burns calls the 59,000,000 Americans who voted to elect President Donald Trump "idiots."
Absolutely, Mr. Burns does have the right to express his opinions, including via social media. This is not a call for governmental censorship. However, it is a call to investigate if the tone he presents via Twitter is also the tone he presents in class.
I wonder how many parents with students in Douglas Burns' classes voted for President Trump. Does he consider them idiots? Does that color his interactions with their children in class? These are questions which must be answered and fully investigated.
Further, consider what the response would be if a conservative teacher had published the exact same things, but instead, had degraded the "millions of idiots" who had voted for FORMER President Obama or Hillary Clinton? The teacher would be fired. Would it not be fair to apply disciplinary action equally to both sides of the political spectrum?
