Tancredo: Report Reveals Massive Indoctrination of Students at Universities Through ‘Transformative Civic Engagement’

Students at hundreds of colleges and universities are being systematically indoctrinated into the “New Civics” of social justice activism, according to a report released this past week by the National Association of Scholars.

The report’s findings suggest that the suppression of free speech on college campuses that is making headlines is only the tip of a very large iceberg. What lies beneath the surface is a massive, publicly funded program of indoctrination through a remaking of the curriculum as a vehicle for advancing the political agenda of progressivism.Image result for indoctrination

The full NAS report, MAKING CITIZENS: HOW AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES TEACH CIVICS, can be found here.

The “New Civics” can accurately be called indoctrination because it is far more ambitious and open than the left-liberal bias in classroom instruction encountered by students for decades. Yes, 90% of college faculty in the liberal arts and humanities are liberal and progressive, and classroom propaganda is a growing problem, but the “New Civics” has ambitions for transforming the entire institution and all academic disciplines into “change agents.”

The “New Civics” is replacing traditional “civic literacy,” and it’s campus-wide ambitions have the endorsement and support of university administrators. In public institutions like the four cases documented in the MAKING CITIZENS report, it sees no conflict in using taxpayer dollars to accomplish its progressive mission.

If you think this is a marginal or minor problem, look at this week’s story, “How Colleges Teach Students to Be Good Citizens,” in the January 13 issue of the premier trade publication for the higher education establishment, THE  CHRONICLE OF HIGHER EDUCATION. The establishment is proud of the “New Civics” and hopes it will be “transformative.” Also, you can take a gander at the section of the Huffington Post devoted to Civic Engagement, where the goals of social justice indoctrination of students are praised by the pioneers of transformative social values like Ralph Nader.

What is amazing about an old problem, never being addressed, getting worse?

None of this is new. It is just more wide open and severe. What the hell does anyone expect? That suddenly academia would correct itself and teach the truth?

But, if you say anything about it with honest concern then you are a naysayer, a negative dolt, a conspiracy nut job, a toothless banjo banging moron.

Back in the 60's a radio talk show host (Jim Eason) referred to U.C.B. and the city of Berkely as "The Peoples Republic Of " !   Our universities as well as our public schools need an enema !

This has been going on for decades and we are just talking about it now? with an out right anarchist like Bill Ayers and his ilk teaching in collages today students are afraid to express there true opinion on matters of political nature! because of social castigation!.   

Bill Ayers and his ilk doing what they do best.  They knew that to destroy our country, they had to indoctrinate the youth.  We may have lost a couple of generations to the brainwashing techniques - just as Yuri Bezmenov said decades ago.

"GIVE ME YOUR CHILDREN FOR ONE GENERATION AND I WILL HAVE YOUR COUNTRY"

A large %of University funding comes from Gov sources. Shut off the valve, and make student loans less accessable

Massive??? I think not....they have been doing this for years and now we kill their funding.

If there's enough letters in the words, you can convince kids of anything!

Why is it that we pay billions[ highest debt in the land at 1.3 trillion and climbing ] to "educate" people, and then we see the results on Water's World.

 These people are idiots.

 We need to return to the days when only people who tested for the capacity to be academics went to college.  Most people do not need a degree to get a job.  In fact, we need to take this money and build professional Vocational schools. America is about to go on  a building binge, and we need people in the trade industry to make it happen. Even President Trump started out as a laborer in his father's business. Compare him to obama who never broke out in a sweat in his life and who has absolutely  no skills [like most politicians]

Watch the documentaries of the 30's in Germany as Hitler taking over the Universities/Govt.    Watch Geo Soros take over of the Dem Party/Universities/our state and Fed govt.   He has spent billions $$$$$$  to destroy this country.   As he has destroyed countries across the globe.   The groups Soros has funded are BLM/ Acorn/LuLac/LaRaza/thugs/protesters/politicians... billions coming from our taxes going into Soros Destroy America programs.   Soros Buys puppets.   And brown shirts protest.  

FACT! Teach the children what you want them to know and they will do what they were taught!!! By parents or schools and colleges. 

Point in fact!! muslims teach their children to hate anyone except a muslim and to kill those that will not convert. Hell, they even teach them to blow themselves up, if they can kill infidels. 

You have to give them credit, which I hate to do because it just shows how stupid "we" are! They have not come to power by having a superior armed force or have superior weaponry. They came to power, because they brainwash people into believing what they say is true. Just like they have in 32 countries today AND are working on America. They also have a very strong position AS I WRITE THIS. Because of the help provided by barrack hussein obama, a muslim, and the politically correct progressives, there are probably 8,000,000 Million of them here now, attempting to accomplish the same thing they have in those countries they already took over. 

I have a son-in-law who is graduating from engineering school in May, and he tells me all the time MANY of the professors are liberal nut jobs and spend much of their time attempting to convince the students liberals and progressives are correct. He states that when they start that crap, he gets up and walks out. And should you ask, how can he do that, he is on the deans list, with a 3.8 average. Very smart young man!

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

Absolutely true! Attending WSU Pullman right now and almost every university required class is so leftist progressive it isn't funny. To add to that conservative views and opinions are crushed out through grading and racism policies. A university education is a crock of shit with useless education that teaches entitlement.

ALERT ALERT

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

Trump's wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment http://bv.ms/2mY1ueX  via @BV

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
