The Liberals Have Captured the Hearts and Minds of Our Youth

I and many of my esteemed colleagues in the Independent Media work tirelessly to help preserve our existing culture, civil liberties and the overall preservation of our country.

Nearly all of us in this business strongly desire to leave a country to our children  worthy of pride, respect and loyalty. Our American culture is on the verge of slipping into the abyss of third-world country mediocrity.

Compared to the country that we once enjoyed, we are handing our children a cesspool of perversion, laziness and extreme self-indulgence. JFK’s message to America in which he stated, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” rings hollow in today’s America.

We have politicians like Senator Dianne Feinstein (R-CA) who gets away with enabling a Chinese spy on her staff with impunity for over 20 years. Feinstein entered the Senate as a millionaire and is now worth over a billion dollars and she accomplished this amazing feat on a public servant’s salary of $170,000. Yet, we tolerate this nonsense. No wonder our children don’t think they are accountable to anyone. No wonder our children don’t think that they have to earn what they get and no wonder our country has been undermined by liberals from the bottom up.

People in my profession work so very hard to preserve this country and then something catches our attention and it leaves us asking “Why are we wasting our time…”?

The Lessons of My Youth

In my family, if I were to ever get in trouble at school, I was even more in trouble at home. Some of my teachers were incredibly difficult. They allowed for no excuses. The only thing that mattered was your final product. Was it good enough? You either passed or you failed. There were no liberal-orientated policies in place where every kid got a trophy, nobody fails and the primary concern was not damaging “Sally’s self-esteem”. And when my teachers were done with us, we had to contend with coaches who made us afraid to fail. They taught us how to overcome the “disease of me” and sacrifice for our team. Most of all, our coaches taught us how to bounce back from setbacks and how to deal with adversity.

In many of today’s public schools, are children are learning the opposite. Our children are shielded from the naturally occurring consequences of their actions. In large part, our children never learn to develop a spirit of resilience because they are shielded from results of their bad decisions. In many of our schools are children are being taught that one should get rewarded for simply showing up. We are certainly not teaching them to honor God. How many of you parents would like to work for a boss that enabled our personal laziness?

In effect, our children are being propagandized to accept and embrace mediocrity. Subsequently, I am left asking some very fundamental questions. Even if we are successful in eradicating the liberal, communist-orientated threat to our country, will our children be able to rightfully take their place in successfully leading our nation into the next generation?

As we prepare to hand our children the keys to the car, so to speak, we need to ask if our children even will know how to drive the car.  A recent poll revealed that 53% Millennials prefer socialism over free enterprise. In other words, we have allowed the conditioning of our children to include the acceptance of failure. Please remember, socialism has never worked anywhere it has been tried and America is about to become the latest nation to reinforce this lesson of history.

America’s Version of the Hitler Youth Movement

The undermining of our youth is happening in places where one would expect the opposite to be happening. Many our schools have become social engineering experiments for the implementation of a liberal-orientated group think approach to laziness and self-indulgent behavior. Let’s take the K-8 West Gate School in Port St. Lucie, FL., as an example of the Marxist-socialist conditioning of our youth.

There Is No Such Thing As a Stinking Due Date

Due dates are a thing of the past. For the Millennial youth of today, showing up for work and producing is so… well… yesteryear. Minimum wage should be $20 per hour. “Who are you to judge me and I can live in my mom’s basement till I am 40”.

Eight years of Obama’s welfare state and his moronic Common Core education program have done irreparable harm to our children.

Obama may no longer be the President, but his nonsensical and moronic notions of a nanny state are still with us today. Take the Port St. Lucie K-8 West Gate school as a prime example.

Former West Gate teacher, Diane Tirado, claims she was fired after she refused to follow her school district’s “no zeros” grading policy as reported by WFTV.

Tirado told WFTV that in the first few weeks of the new semester, she assigned her class an “explorer notebook project.”  Tirado reported that but after the two-week due date had expired, several students had failed to complete their work. This is when Tirado discovered that the school had a “no zeros” policy. She was directed to give the students 50% credit for doing nothing.

After Tirado refused to give students 50% credit for work NOT turned in, she was terminated on September 14.

I contacted the school district and they claim that Tirado was not terminated for failing students and that the district did NOT have a “no zeros” policy. However, the WFTV report clearly showed the policy in writing. So, we not only see the enabling of abject student laziness, we are seeing the willingness of liberal school officials to lie about their policies when they are exposed.

On Tirado’s last day at West Gate, she wrote the following message and then posted it to Facebook.  The message explained  to her history students why she was fired.

Here is the message and it should serve as a testimony of how we have failed our children. We have robbed our children of learning the values of hard work and resilience.

Tirado told WFTV that she took a stand against the school’s policy because “we have a nation of kids that are expecting to get paid and live their life just for showing up and it’s not real.”

 Conclusion

This story had a profound impact on this writer. It encapsulates how we have failed our children. Again, it leaves me wondering if it matters what kind of country we leave to our children.

    Dear Dave thank you for this informative if not sad article. This shows how our country has become not only liberal, but communist! The idea of winners and losers is anathema to commies. Everyone is equal and there are no right or wrongs or losers or winners. Just central government to adore. May Our Lord have mercy on those who open their eyes!

  2. Keith R. Starkey September 26, 2018 at 5:57 am

    I am appalled, Dave. Just appalled! This woman should have been forced to give the kids 75% credit for not turning anything in.
    How can you not see that? How can you defend her, Dave?
    Does not even the lack of simple common sense that exists in the minds of our youth deserve protection?

    Well, as for me, Dave, I’m just lost. I have no words…as a matter of fact, there shouldn’t even be assignments or homework.
    THE KIDS SHOULDN’T EVEN HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL! (Isn’t YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook enough education?)

    Come on, Dave, get with the program! We have to keep dumbing down our society. (What are you, anyway, an intelligent person?)

    (Thanks, Dave!)

    The bible told us how people would act in the last days.Today’s generation proves propey correct again.

  4. Ed Culbertson September 26, 2018 at 7:37 am

    Yes it matters what kind of country we leave our children! What would we have had if it where not for our founding fathers? Largely we (men) are none existent in this fight for America! I quote Largely. I think what it is going to take in order for Americans to awaken is mass extermination through the many ways you Dave have spoken of over the years. With all that continues our march toward the abyss I cannot understand the complacency.

    I love your point of view on this. They are correct though because that was exactly what our parents felt about our generation, (the Baby Boomers). And of course there is TV advertising which has turned lying into an art form, Now we have two more generations who have grown up being manipulated by the advertisers because they don’t advertise a product, but a life style, because they know that works better a HOOKING OUR EMOTIONS ! Good point though Dave, but question remains how do we turn it around, when it has become such an integral part of our society.

    I supposed that we should all feel lucky that we are all not zombies. Oops, I’m sorry, is appears that a good portion of American citizens already are

    How sad Dave, We have become a culture of enforced ignorance and rewarded incompetence. The socialists, commies and general overall air-heads have captured the urban public (government) schools. Many “graduates” from these factories of learned helplessness, unable to even pass a 6th grade examination from 100 years ago, enter into the real world dumbed down and not a few doped up. So far. that is, SO FAR, America’s university professional schools of medicine, dentistry, science, engineering and law, as such, still operate and educate to the high standards of a high tech civilization. But how many of these schools of professional training, have to scour the planet for students that can fill the lecture seats and can pay the over the top tuitions, because so many American high school graduates are so incompetent and if capable of professional training, go into a lifetime of debt many ending up waiting tables. Why? Because many American White males are frozen out of the jobs they were trained for. Many have to go to the back of the line of commie enforced affirmative action.
    Diane Tirado’s penmanship in her note leaves something to be desired from, I am sure, a very competent teacher who otherwise has high educational standards.

    The CIA/deep state/Democratic/commie attempted destruction of President Trump’s nomination to the Supreme Court is a prime example of the what education in this country has come to. The CIA and it’s mockingbird media inabled women that have come out of the wood work accusing Judge Kavenaugh, an otherwise a decent man, of sexual improprieties, now numbers three. Will there a 4th a 5th accuser?

    We had one just like this a few years ago in Edmonton, Alberta for a high school teacher who gave students a zero for not handing in work – I believe he had about 30 years on the job – full story – https://edmontonjournal.com/news/local-news/alberta-appeal-court-declines-to-reinstate-zero-grade-edmonton-teacher

    Now this week has been crowned “Gender Equality Week” in Canuckland and then they’re debating helping out kids who are depressed or otherwise with this newest self help tool.

    Good Lord I’d love to move, but my wife won’t consider it – we are all going to hell with these insane edits and policies – also it pays to be a terrorist here – kill some Americans and claim 10 million, we’ve got another 69 running around that we know of who need terrorist daycare – where else but Utopian libertard land oh, and we gave hitlary 10 million to for good measure of our tax dollars…

  8. old bat September 26, 2018 at 1:40 pm

    the kids deserved a 50, cuz they knew they had an assignment to turn in, and knowing is half the battle. at least that is what g.i. joe said. 😉

    Homeschool or die, Port St. Lucie Westgate edition

  10. Defender777 September 26, 2018 at 4:06 pm

    Principal of that school needs to be fired and Tirado given the job as she clearly “gets it”.

  11. Fred September 26, 2018 at 8:00 pm

    In the story about liberals capturing the hearts and minds of our youth the alleged media all star who authored the piece ought to have his or her fingers slapped with a ruler for putting an “R” after Di-Fi’s name. Ooh-La-La!

  12. Monique September 27, 2018 at 5:50 pm

    I’ve witnessed much of this first-hand with my sixth grader. She and her fellow students get awarded just for showing up to class. Last year she attended 100% missing zero days. A fellow student showed up 90% of the time. They both were awarded attendance awards. How does this make my student want to strive for 100% attendance?
    Her father questioned her about the other student’s attendance and her reply which I will never forget…..”We’ll dad, ANYONE can show up to class.”

  13. Holly September 27, 2018 at 7:07 pm

    Our public schools are a tragedy and shame. Many parents homeschool their children for this very reason. There is no valid excuse for allowing our children to suffer from lack of good work ethic and integrity.

  14. Peter O'Connor September 28, 2018 at 3:33 am

    The premise of grades or marks and percentages for children is is presented here unquestioned. Why should children get grades? There is a debate on this and for example in schools which consider Rudolf Steiner’s views on education of children the teachers write an evaluation of the pupil.
