Skip to comments.An Alleged Case of Textbook Bias So ‘Outrageous’ That One Student Says ‘People Need to Know About It
Posted on 02/18/2014 5:34:29 AM PST by rktman
A university-assigned textbook that appears to suggest former President Ronald Reagan was a sexist and says conservatives view individuals as lazy and corrupt is under fire from at least one student.
This is really outrageous, Anna Chapman, a University of South Carolina student in the class, told Campus Reform. [I]ts so in your face, people need to know about it.

Leftists make their own reality. Always have.
We happened to catch a wonderful hour long program on Ronal Reagan last night.
Sure made me wish for the old days ..
Liberals “Project” their own flaws on their “enemies.”
It’s the dumbing-down of the population and indoctrination on steroids. It’s Soviet Union tactics brought to the U.S. and it’s being done by those that many people look up to, just like in the old Soviet Union.
Problem is that, with the liberals and their control of the education system, it’s likely to have the effects which they hope to get with people that don’t know any better and with those that are willing to accept what’s put in front of them, no questions asked.
When a person in authority in a university hands out an assignment for reading, the students have to go along, no matter how much the material is biased, because, their grades depend on it. That is forced indoctrination, and though some will see through the bias, others will just accept the content at face value, and that’s where the dangers is, and the professors are counting on that.
Yep. There's only one Reagan.
At this point, I'd take Hillary! over the current occupier of the WH. At least she's an American, and probably doesn't want to destroy the country.
So I'm going into work this morning. Blurb on the radio says that "A Survey says that 26% of people think the sun revolves around the earth, rather than the other way 'round."
Granted, it's morning talk radio and hardly concrete scientific evidence. But it didn't surprise me, either.
Yeah, their ideological “father” takes what is good and true and TWISTS it into a perversion of its true self.
The “accusation” that conservatives see people as “lazy and corrupt” is a perversion of the truth.
Conservatives generally have the “limited” view of the condition of Man, ie, that he’s inherently sinful, that his wicked behavior comes from within and is not, as the liberals believe, “inherently good” and his negative behavior is simply a product of his environment.
That is why no human can be allowed to have power over the life, liberty or property of another, because he will abuse that power. This is reality. This is why our gov’t is set up the way it is.
The liberals’ view of mankind leads them to being SHOCKED! SHOCKED! that when they provide a good environment, say, more fruits and veggies to buy, that people still don’t buy them.
I agree with your first sentence-—not so sure about the 2nd .
Broken down by ideology, conservative republicans faired rather well, comparatively.
That 26% was the results of a group called “conservative democrats”.
Conservative republicans’ results were in the 70’s. Still too low.
The trouble being the left has almost total control of positions of authority and of public opinion. It will not be long until the more vocal conservatives are rounded up and placed in camps.
Oh, she wants a USSA as much as anyone.
I’ll hand this to you though, USSA or not, Barry wants to see America punished.
Appears that a lot of youngsters have already been “taught” that self dependance/reliance is bad. Teams are “everything” and without being part of one there is no chance of succeeding. WRONG! Sometimes, you gotta do things on your own. It would be easier if you had some help but sometimes, it just isn’t available. Besides, you didn’t do that. Nope. Somebody else did that for you. Sheesh. Thank God there are still parents out there that teach their kids that being responsible for your self and actions is THE basic principle. One of my former work buddies used to tell us his Dad always told him: “Don, ain’t nobody out there that really gives a s*** about you. Take care of your self first.” LOL!
Students that are not willing to accept these type of drivel will become alienated, their grades will suffer, and eventually will change majors.
This is a type of discrimination. Fair minded students will be weeded out and the graduating classes will be full of like minded "professionals" ready to work in government, education, politics, foundations, etc.
I've had occasion to talk to some of these people and they all seem to be cast from the same mold.
Anna Chapman the Russian spy babe?
Agreed. Our Constitution’s checks and balances, (if they had the courage to use them), are proof positive that our Founders understood that men are inherently sinful. When used as designed, they keep inherently sinful men from abusing their power.
But now I can easily imagine this kind of oppression happening here. These people are flat nuts and would have no problem 'eliminating' those with whom they disagree.
Once the fact our essential individual rights descend from God is eliminated as the base assumption of our form of government it will not be long before really bad things start happening.
It is not madness that governs the Left it is an overwhelming lust for power, absolute total power. They must be resisted and by force if necessary. The various Conservative factions must settle their differences and organize a united front.
Problem is that, with the liberals and their control of the education system, its likely to have the effects which they hope to get with people that dont know any better and with those that are willing to accept whats put in front of them, no questions asked.
Walter Cronkite was able to lie and undermine our success with the Tet Offensive for the same reasons the Soviets could “rewrite history.”
Now we live in the information age. We can fight back but there’s one problem. How many are willing to do so?
One thing that must be the foundation of said resistance is the acceptance of the concept that the left aren’t just our friendly political opponents. They want to eliminate all opposition, in the most extreme sense of the word. This has historical precedent as proof.
Call me a Pollyanna, but I think that she'd rein it in more than Obama. If, for no other reason than that she's more politically savvy.
Frankly, my worst nightmare is currently in the works. As president, BO did things to America that Hillary! never would have dreamed of doing, because it wasn't politically expedient.
Now with her looking to make a try at the presidency in 2016, she has the opportunity to cement in his gains. Talk about a worst case scenario.
Not so sure about that. Remember ... her senior thesis in college was a tribute to Saul Alinksy, so she and Zero are ideological birds of a feather.
LOL, "None of us is as dumb as All of us".
Every "team" that I've been a part of, usually winds up carrying a percentage of its members. It's a good way to ensure that no one fails, but no one truly succeeds, either.
I agree. The horror being the Left is winning. They have divided us and are now conquering.
See my post 23 for further explanation.
Hillary is what is termed a “Fabian socialist” - do it gradually, but do it.
LOL! A less learned FReeper (like myself) would call this “Boiling Frogs in a Pot”.
LOL! Everybody gets a trophy. Regardless of ineptness or inability. Saw it a lot in my career. I think we called it carrying dead weight.
Damn - this school is on my son’s top five for college, need to have another look at it.....
In corporate, it made the choices easy for layoffs. I sometimes wonder if that's why we carried some of dead weight during good times - they were just sacrifical goats to be staked out when things got lean.
Gov’t schooling is much worse, K-12 should have already prepared her to except these lies. Anna was either in private school or she slipped through the entrenched mindless communist gov’t brainwashing net.
Hey teachers leave those kids along!
Federalizing health care was Hillary’s idea first, remember? She is just as evil as Obama. And she has taught her daughter well.

Chelsea Clinton speaks at pro-abort luncheon
Surely, comrades, you don’t want Jones back?
At this point, I’d take Hillary! over the current occupier of the WH. At least she’s an American, and probably doesn’t want to destroy the country.
She’d sell you to the highest bidder. Remember all the tech they sold to the Chinese? They even sold blood from prisoners (Ark State Pen) to the international Red Cross (bunch of Canadians were infected with AIDS and Hep).
She left her “friend” the ambasador to die with three other Americans.
Be very careful what you wish for.
True enough. Given the choice between her and the current WH occupier, I'd take "neither". But if I had a gun to my head (not that far fetched a scenario, just ask Vince Foster), I think that I'd take her - for the aforementioned reasons.
Sad how far America has fallen, that a seasoned FReeper like myself would look at a Clinton and say "Could be worse."
