New York Times: Teachers Should Brainwash Students Against Trump

Today, the New York Times ran an editorial which contained quotes urging public school teachers to "explain" to students that Donald Trump "broke the class rules", and claiming that teachers should not be balanced in discussing Trump with students. While the article frames itself as an "invitation to share ideas", it is clearly one-sided and only quotes anti-Trump "educators". The question posed by the article is not "should we be biased against Trump?" It is "how should we be biased against Trump?"

The article claims that "Donald J. Trump offers a classroom challenge most have never encountered" -- after spewing off a list of #NeverTrump talking points. It parrots the discredited liberal activist group, The Southern Poverty Law Center's unsubstantiated claims that Trump has created an increase in racist bullying in public schools. 

This is the most recent, but not the only, occasion of public school teachers advocating and committing bias against Trump and his supporters.

On August 11, 2016, a Boston news and radio station published an article by Mike Kalin, who teaches English and history. Kalin called for teachers to actively attack Trump's so-called "vitriolic rhetoric", and accused teachers who stay neutral in political issues of condoning racism. Here are some "interesting" quotes from Mikhail "Kommisar" Kalin's article:

"By refraining from expressing to students any criticism of these comments, and the many more like them, teachers implicitly condone dangerous stereotypes about race, religion and ethnicity."

"Teachers who remain agnostic about these remarks unintentionally convey that they represent acceptable forms of expression."

"Some parents and community leaders express understandable skepticism about any political interference on the part of teachers, especially those working in public institutions ... but we also need to recognize the grave consequences of allowing Trump’s rhetoric to go unchallenged. "

"But teachers ultimately do students a disservice if they don’t acknowledge that many of Trump’s statements have violated norms of decency in a singular manner. Perhaps more than any other obligation, educators have a duty to uphold civil discourse that values diversity and dissent. In any other election year, fulfilling this obligation and fulfilling the obligation to refrain from editorializing on candidates’ statements would not be mutually exclusive. These are no ordinary times, however.

Let’s be honest: A student who frequently made racist and sexist remarks about classmates would end up in the principal’s office, maybe even find himself suspended. We can’t assign Trump a detention, but at the very least, teachers can explain to students that he’s broken the class rules."

There is one thing that Kommisar Kalin is right about -- these ARE no "ordinary times." If Trump is elected, the political and media establishment -- and with Trump's support of school choice, the educational establishment as well -- have the potential not just to be weakened, but to be totally discredited. 

And THAT is why the media dislikes Trump, NOT because he insults his political opponents. It is because Trump has completely discredited them (many news outlets gave Trump a 1-2% chance of winning the Republican nomination this time last year.)

As President Trump takes the stage, the teacher lunges towards the whiteboard and repeatedly fires the water pistol while screaming "DIE." She then begins whimpering and fires the pistol several more times. Students can be heard in the background saying "Hit him" as she fires at the projection of Trump.

Indoctrination 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 lib…

Falls Church High School Administrators Distributing Anti-Trump Protest Symbols to Teachers, Students

Update 11/21/2016: An anonymous comment on ResistanceMedia.org, claiming to be one of the students pictured in this article, has asked for the removal of one of the images. The image was publicly posted on Twitter by the student, but to respect the privacy of the student, the image has been blurred to hide identifying facial features. 

Photos circulated via Twitter show "safety pins" distributed to students and teachers by the staff and "student leadership" (i.e. puppet government) of Falls Church High School. The "safety pin" is a symbol first used in the aftermath of the United Kingdom's historic "Brexit" vote to leave the European Union and reclaim their national sovereignty. Now, after Donald J. Trump's electoral victory, anti-Trump protesters are using the safety pin to symbolize opposition to his policies and rhetoric.

From theIndependent Journal Review: A movement has started in the U.S. of people wearing a safety pin in order to d…
