Ryan McElveen: Academic Honor is "White-Centric"

In an article published in the University of Virginia's student newspaper, The Cavalier Daily, current Fairfax school board member Ryan McElveen railed against UVA's "honor system", whereby students are trusted to maintain academic integrity, but are punished very severely if they betray the university's trust. This system, according to the University's website, has been a fixture of UVA life for over 160 years.

However, according to McElveen, the honor system is racist, sexist, and "Western-centric."

"In general, knowledge of the system is even less important when the system itself is theoretically debased and unrepresentative of our post-modern world. Based on its origins, the concept of honor is West-centric, male-centric and, dare I say it, white-centric. Like all organs of student self-governance at the University, the honor system is a historically white organization that fails to incorporate diverse value and belief systems." 

The honor system is simply a one-sentence pledge, "I will not lie, cheat, or steal." That's racist? Is McElveen implying that minorities are more likely to lie, cheat, or steal, or that they should not be expected to abide by the same standards of conduct as whites?

To me, the idea that not lying, cheating, or stealing represents "white-centric" culture seems like a perfect advertisement for the Ku Klux Klan.

Diverse value and belief systems? What "belief system" excuses lying, cheating, and stealing? Radical atheism? Satanism? As for myself, I do not want those "belief systems" "incorporated" into university honor systems. Does Ryan McElveen?

It is very clear from this article that Ryan McElveen is a moral relativist. In other words, he believes that all morality and ethics are subjective social constructs - a belief shared by many other historical individuals.

While McElveen espouses moral relativism in some areas of life, his entire transgender crusade has been focused around "doing the right thing." According to McElveen, schools must throw student privacy rights - as well as the constitutional rights to freedom of speech and association - out the window, all for the sake of a few dozen FCPS students' sexual preferences. McElveen characterizes this absurd policy as "doing the right thing."

But when it comes to lying, cheating, or stealing, Ryan McElveen believes that it is "subjective" whether or not those activities are ethical. So, Ryan, let me get this straight: it's OK to lie, cheat, and steal because diversity, but a moral code that you don't believe in requires schools to enact leftist social policies? Right...

Please continue to check ResistanceMedia.org for updates - including about Ryan McElveen. I am investigating another article that McElveen wrote for the same newspaper - which should call into question why McElveen is on the Fairfax school board, in a position that involves children.

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…
