FACULTY LOUNGE FASCIST ROUNDUP: NOVEMBER 6th

Education or indoctrination gifIt’s the latest installment of Faculty Lounge Fascist Roundup! 

Time for another look at how fascist Democrats have distorted the “educational system” (LMAO) and transformed schools, colleges and universities into churches of irrational thought and political intolerance.

SEATTLE SCHOOLS PLAN TO PRESENT MATH CLASSES WHICH CLAIM MATH HAS BEEN USED TO OPPRESS PEOPLE OF COLOR – The Democrats in Seattle’s Public Schools are pushing the next step in their irrational belief that people are nothing but their skin color. The link is below, but first some excerpts:

“In October, Seattle public schools unveiled a “framework” to inject “math ethnic studies” into all K-12 math classes, teaching “how math has been and continues to be used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color” and “ … explain how math dictates economic oppression.”

“Why/how does data-driven processes prevent liberation?” it asks. “How important is it to be Right? What is Right? Says Who?” (NOTE FROM BALLADEER: You’ll notice that the Democrats who push this divisive gibberish never seem to ask: “Does math REALLY dictate economic oppression? Says WHO?” No, their incredibly biased dogma is to be accepted as objective truth, even though such Democrats insist there IS NO SUCH THING AS OBJECTIVE TRUTH when it comes to any viewpoints not their own.)

Tracy Castro-GillThe curriculum was pushed by the school district’s ethnic studies program manager, Tracy Castro-Gill . . . (photo at left, Seattle Public Schools photo)

“I am an educator of color in Seattle whose job is anti-racist work within the school district. Seattle is very white — nearly 70%. It’s also one of the most liberal cities in the US, and these liberal, white Seattleites hate being called racist, but the thing is – a lot of them are,” she wrote.

“Though she was hired by the superintendent and the school board, Castro-Gill said criticisms of the math proposal from one board member’s Asian wife were  racist.

YAAAAWN! Democrats have made terms like “racist” and “white supremacist” and “white nationalist” so absurdly overused as to be meaningless. If you’re wondering why Castro-Gill thinks she’s entitled to call an Asian woman racist the article explains “Castro-Gill wrote on her blog that her mother is white and her father is Hispanic …”

FACULTY LOUNGE FASCIST ROUNDUP: SEPTEMBER 17th

Education or indoctrination gifTime for another look at how fascist Democrats have distorted the “educational system” (LMAO) and transformed schools, colleges and universities into churches of irrational thought and political intolerance.

NORTH CAROLINA – A Union County teacher at Cuthbertson High School is being investigated for allegedly telling her students that the Vice President should be “shot in the head.” Sounds like more of that “tolerance” that Democrats are forever lecturing everyone about. For that story click HERE 

For several more of these types of stories:  Continue reading
