    “Teaching as a Subversive Activity”: The Theory of Political Indoctrination
    From My Hero at Zombietime.com: http://zombietime.com/teaching_as_a_subversive_activity/

    The main drawback of Professor Brown’s verbal style (at least from my point of view) is that he often resorts to the academics’ tried-and-true escape hatch, which is to rephrase statements as questions, so as to have plausible deniability if later confronted. Thus, for example, instead of just flatly saying something like “We should indoctrinate students with leftist ideologies,” he asks “Should we indoctrinate students with leftist ideologies?” and only after five minutes of talking in circles eventually concludes “Yes.”

    This is so well worded, it tickles my mind. YES! This is exactly how teachers, politicians, the media operate. Put statements in the form of questions, hoping that you too will ask such things in your mind, and come to their same conclusion.

    “Is Sarah Palin a wild-eyed nut?”
    “Is Mitt Romney too rich and too white to be president?”
    “Is the Tea Party racist?”

    Zombietime goes on to conclude the liberal buzz-words we should watch out for.
    Code Phrases Alluding to Indoctrination:
    Critical pedagogy
    Agent for change
    Moral imperative
    “Critical” anything

    Republicans CAN take back education, but they are so busy chasing their tail, they can’t focus on any strategy. As soon as Republicans learn to juggle the issues of the day, the democrats throw up another wedge issue ball to deal with, and Republicans wind up dropping all of them.

      Of course it’s not just academia that’s the problem. Once the brain-dead heads full of mush graduate, they get jobs in our industries.

      I recently had a conversation with one of our HR managers who doesn’t get that I’m persecuted by a couple of socialist-types in our company. They’ve made it their hobby to not only go after me, personally, but my work-section because they cannot have their way with it as they do with other work-sections.

      She often used the phrase, “I have no problem reaching out to [person X or person Y]” and I confronted her on it and told her that that phrasing is academic garbage-speak that means nothing. I said, “If you mean ‘communicate with’ or ‘talk to’ then please, just say that.” Naturally, she took offense and tried to explain the meaning. What ensued was a post-graduate stream of utter verbal crapola. I guess such moonbeams pass for knowledge in the uber-enlightened world.

      But this is what we, who think and work and have little time for unicorn and rainbow quests, are up against. She was completely opposed to the idea that anyone in management had any personal vendettas against any employee and the examples I cited she dismissed as hearsay and speculation because I hadn’t been told such things directly by the people in question.

      Naive and very sure of herself, she’s in for one rude awakening. Altruism is a surefire way to build oneself a record of being professionally inert. But, in today’s business world, that’s exactly what they want so she’ll move up to be some wheel somewhere who never questions the authority of those who put her there.

      In other words, an idiot. Highly paid idiot, to be sure but an idiot nonetheless.

      She has her manuals and manuscripts telling her how to enforce fairness and equal opportunity. I’m sure she already didn’t like me because 1) I’m white 2) I’m male 3) I clearly spoke my mind and position and 4) I probably need to be punished for something but she’s not sure what, yet.

      And, there’s no other country left to go to where one can get away from it. We have voluntarily brought ourselves into a hell of trying to make everything fair and equal. But while we’re masturbating ourselves with that, the muslims and the other people who want this nation destroyed, including the internal turncoats, are winning.

      Hopefully, I’ll be dead and gone before I witness the replacement of Christmas with ramadan.

      Remember that hollywood actor playing the Indian who cried when he saw the trash dumped out of the car window? Yeah, like that.

    It’s all by design, according to a Great Plan

    Please, I beg you … learn up on the Tavistock Institute … quit trying to figure it out and go see what’s been planned since WWII


    Snippets –

    “Tavistock Institute developed the mass brain-washing techniques which were first used experimentally on American prisoners of war in Korea. Its experiments in crowd control methods have been widely used on the American public, a surreptitious but nevertheless outrageous assault on human freedom by modifying individual behavior through topical psychology. A German refugee, Kurt Lewin, became director of Tavistock in 1932. He came to the U.S. in 1933 as a “refugee”, the first of many infiltrators, and set up the Harvard Psychology Clinic, which originated the propaganda campaign to turn the American public against Germany and involve us in World War II.”


    ” … The traditional formula of land plus labor for the farmer has been altered due to the farmer’s need for purchasing power, to buy industrial goods needed in his farming operations. Because of this need for capital, the farmer is especially vulnerable to the World Order’s manipulation of interest rates, which is bankrupting him. Just as in the Soviet Union, in the early 1930s, when Stalin ordered the Kulaks to give up their small plots of land to live and work on the collective farms, the American small farmer faces the same type of extermination, being forced to give up his small plot of land to become a hired hand for the big agricultural trusts. The Brookings Institution and other foundations originated the monetary programs implemented by the Federal Reserve System to destroy the American farmer, a replay of the Soviet tragedy in Russia, with one proviso that the farmer will be allowed to survive if he becomes a slave worker of the giant trusts… ”

    Egypt’s US Embassy is closed for Tues Nov 27 for the “Million Person March” which poses security problems.

    I’ve noticed the liberal media is distinguishing modern Muslims as liberal and Islamic extremists “conservatives” more often. And the trend to overcome their lack of reporting of Christians, such as the ones starving in Egypt, is putting them in with the “secular groups”

    From National Review: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/334085/jeb-bush-meets-former-aides-near-white-house-robert-costa#

    NOOOOOOOOOO! Tell me there is some sanity left in this world? Another Bush? Another reach across the aisle liberal Republican? Really? REALLY? OMG, yes, really. If it’s politics, expect much much worse than the unexpected.

    If there is one thing America is clamoring for, it’s a 3rd Bush Administration. And of course, the consultants and strategists will be naive enough to sell what people don’t want.
    (e.g.: Bush Sr./Dole/McCain/Romney) ~sigh……

    • GetBackJack says:

      Hideous. Hide your children and gold candlesticks. Another Bush is festering in the political weeds.

      God, please save us from these and the other dynasties brewing out there.

      The Republicans better pursue the Bengazi murderous trap because the next minority may be a dangerous woman named Hillary or worse.

      Obama gave free phones, forgetting the free computers, yet alone Gates giving the expensive school micro-soft software required free. instead focusing on toilets in Africa which will mean Americans getting jobs overseas. Put up a few trailers and perks for contract workers.

      So, if the Republican’s can’t find a minority they will need to think of something they can give free to minorities. Guns?

      George P. Bush, nephew of former president, reportedly makes campaign filing in Texas
      From FoxNews: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/11/09/george-p-bush-nephew-former-president-reportedly-makes-campaign-filing-in-texas/

      DALLAS – George P. Bush, a nephew of former President George W. Bush and son of one-time Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has made a campaign filing in Texas that is required of candidates planning to run for state office, an official said Thursday night.

      No God….no no no…..The way the Republican establishment preps liberal Republicans for future office, and not conservative ones, is vomit-inducing.

      Another Kennedy offspring is in office again, and Chelsea Clinton will fill the void of a Clinton in office, so I guess the Republicans think they have to keep up with the Jones’s.

      Jeb Bush & George P. Bush…….watch from now until 2016, these 2 weasel their way onto t.v. magazines, Republican-type media, trying to talk/act conservative, make boastful and controversial attention-getting speeches, create buzz for themselves, then follow the same jelly-spined liberalism the rest of their family always has.

      BUSH FAMILY: “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me, fool me three times, I have proven to the world that I am easily fooled.”

      Jeb Bush Hammers Teachers Unions for Refusing Education Reforms

      On Tuesday, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush fired a salvo at labor groups by attacking teachers’ unions for their refusal to consider reforms.

      Can I call the shots or what? Bush picking fights to attain buzz, and get Republican support. Oh dear God, it’s beginning again……

    Now we can blame the next Islamic protest on Jamie Foxx calling Obama our lord and our savior.

    And to think Foxx was an atheist and now considers Obama a miracle worker.

    New York Daily News continues to blame video on deadly attack against innocent Americans in Benghazi; excusing Egypt’s barbaric death sentences.

    NY Daily News: Terry Jones, Florida pastor who burned the Koran, among those sentenced to death by Egyptian court


    An Egyptian court convicted Jones in absentia[sic] Wednesday and sentenced him to death in connection to a controversial anti-Islam film that incited deadly protests around the world in September, including the killing of the American ambassador in Benghazi, Libya.

    The Cairo court also called for the death of seven Egyptian Coptic Christians who no longer live in the country.

    Egypt’s official news agency said the court found the defendants guilty of harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking Islam, and spreading false information — charges that carry the death sentence.

    During the trial in Egypt, the court reportedly reviewed a video of some defendants calling for an independent Coptic state in Egypt, and another of Jones burning the Koran.

    Obama statements –

    “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam….” – Democratic Convention 2012

    “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.” – Ramadan 2010

    Obama lavishing praise on Cairo Egypt before aiding President Morsi to become the new dictator.

    ” I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles – principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

    “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

    “Of course, recognizing our common humanity is only the beginning of our task.”

    “This last point is important because there are some who advocate for democracy only when they are out of power; once in power, they are ruthless in suppressing the rights of others.
