Chuck Norris: 'Public schools are little more than secular progressive indoctrination camps'
christiantoday.com ^ | June 24, 2014 | Chuck Norris: 'Public schools are little more than secular progressive indoctrination camps'

Posted on 06/29/2014 6:54:21 AM PDT by ilovesarah2012

When 18-year-old high school student Andrew Lampart went to research conservative views on his school computer for a class debate, he was surprised – and disturbed – to discover that they were blocked.

The blocked sites at Nonnewaug High School in Woodbury, Connecticut, included the websites of the Vatican, the Republic Party, the National Right to Life advocacy group, and the National Rifle Association.

Meanwhile, Lampart had no problem going on to the Democrat Party, Planned Parenthood and LGBT nation websites.

"I knew it was important to get facts for both sides of the case," he told Fox News.

The situation could have been straight out of the recent Christian movie, God is Not Dead, in which an atheist lecturer threatens to fail his Christian student unless he can win a debate – decided by his classmates – about whether God exists or not.

"This is really border line indoctrination," continued Lampart.

I suppose we are to understand there is no bias or taxpayer funds involved too?

The left may be trying to use them as indoctrination camps, but the students are learning little of anything at all in them. They are simply taxpayer-funded daycare at this point; my sons describe the delineation between those who want to learn (often motivated by parents) and the larger segment who are there because of state law.

Scary part is we have a lot of GOPLibs who support this indoctrination type of public school....the GOP and even conservative talk radio never advocates home schooling

Chuck Norris is spot on here

Even in Mississippi, the teacher parking lot cars all have Obama stickers on their bumpers and claim to be conservative. In reality they are hypocrites.

There is no such thing as conservative talk radio, those that may come to mind are nothing more then mouth pieces for the GOP elites.

If you think I am wrong ask yourself this simple question, where is the truth about the Obama BC issue on any of these shows. They run ads for the Heritage Foundation, the same group that Mitt payed to create a paper supporting his healthcare plan when he was Gov.

This all started happening in the mid 1970s, I remember it clear as day. It’s when the WW2 era teachers and Professors started retiring and the leftist hippies took their place. I remember my first year in college I started the semester and my professors would show up for class wearing a suit/shirt and tie, then seemingly overnight they were gone and the next semester was hippies wearing tee shirt and sandals bashing Nixon. That use to drive me nuts “Todays lesson on statistics....now let us imagine Nixon had 3000 bombs to bomb cambodia” real dickwad leftists, but of course they mention nothing about Pol Pot. And the sad part is today those commie leftist hippies are retiring but because of leftist indoctrination, they are being replaced by the same kind of leftists so it’s this vicious circle.

You’re confusing learn math, science, and other traditional subjects with learning what the left considers important. The kids are learning the lefts subject very well.

Coached baseball with a good staff for 3 seasons at HS. The academic situation is pretty much as described. However there are still winners and losers in varsity athletics...except for soccer. And more often than not, discussions and views of subjects were far different that what the kids received in class.

If the feds control the school agenda by only giving less than 10% of the funding to public education, then where is the school board that can send that money back and make do with the 90% provided by the local tax base?

Cowards! Really, 10% of funding, really?

Maybe the local tax payers should demand some control or pull their funding.

Dear Chuck, Thanks for speaking out on what is our BIGGEST problem hiding in plain sight!

Until we get a handle on THIS problem, these places will continue pumping out millions of new little Marxist morons. If you thought obozo was bad, give them a few more classes and we'll find ourselves trying to deal with a whole crop of "leaders" who will make Stalin and Hitler look like veritable Sunday school teachers!!

A personal anecdote to that point:

While there are rare exceptions, a man or woman does not become a government school teacher in or principal of a government school today without passing political, ideological muster with the largely socialist/liberal educrats above him/her.

I picked up my grandson at his high school several times before the 2008 election. Nearly EVERY car in the teachers’ parking lot sported an OBAMA bumper sticker! Some were PLASTERED with them.

On one occasion AFTER the election, I had to pick him up in the Principal’s office. As I waited for him, the Principal came out of her office and asked who I was. (At all of 4-5” tall, she looked just like Robert Reich’s sister and the liberal/socialist she was. Actually, she looked like a bleeping troll!) I told her who I was and remarked on the student created anti-drug posters decorating the walls in the hallway.

Yes, she said, drugs are a problem in the schools today. I agreed and, recognizing the truck-size opening she’d just afforded me and unable to hold back, I remarked that the American voters had sent a wonderful message to our kids by installing in the White House a guy who still smokes pot and used cocaine in college? To my delight, the nearby ARMED security guy piped in with “Yeah, he admitted it on the campaign trail.”

She paused then blurted “What do you want me to say to that?” I said there was nothing she COULD say but that I was blown away by the hypocrisy of those posters inasmuch as it appears that, if one uses the bumper stickers on the cars in the teachers’ lot as a gauge, every adult in that building voted for an admitted drug user to lead the nation.

We turned and walked out. My grandson glanced back and remarked quietly that she did not look happy.

We both smiled.

Nothing border line about it.

Pardon me Mr. Norris but, 'Public schools are little more than secular progressive indoctrination camps'

Please get you kids out of these camps. Nothing good can come from it. Either home school your kids or enroll them in a quality conservative Christian school. Yes, it is expensive, but these are your kids. In today's world they need/deserve as much of a conservative philosophy was they can get.

Couldn't agree more and I put Rush at the top of the list.
Øbama is destroying the country and all Rush does is talk about it - no action.
No action except selling more tea and children's books ... as if he needed the money.

Our colleges are the same... lots of useless stuff - bankrupting students and families with excessively high tuition.

Then again, on the lighter brighter side, elite liberals ARE bringing in lots of highly educated young people from foreign countries to work in professional fields (tech medicine, engineering, accounting etc)- for cheaper wages.

So liberal elites get the best of all worlds... they keep their liberal 'teacher,s union types and professors' employed, indoctrination camps open, steal YOUR money to give your kids a second rate education - then give American jobs away to foreigners who work for less...Ya gotta love 'em...

Try THIS

Used one when I had a table at a gun show. Darn thing lasted all day and picked up conversations clearly, despite being inside my breast pocket. Lying on a desk should be even better.

Seems it would be good when driving as well. Any dialogue with a cop (seizes your cell phone as "no surveillance" allowed, etc.) or fender-bender motorist might come in handy. We live in screwy times.

I saw a news story a few weeks ago about a state school in NJ pushing to attract foreign students to bolster enrollment; I was surprised because I was there twenty years ago and it already had a LOT of Red Chinese and Arab students. At the same time (then and now) they reject a lot of NJ applicants; as I understand it, they can charge out-of-state and out-of-country students a lot more than NJ residents...

It is a scam and a business; you would sign up for a class, the professor would occasionally appear, and you would be taught by 25 year-old teacher assistants and such.

I’m glad that many things that cruised below the radar in the past are now being exposed to the spotlight; this normally happens when people are staring poverty in the face.

They got a sense of it when George W. Bush was elected twice, and have spent the years since shoving their Kenyan puppet down our throats. I find it incredible that after these years of absolute economic misery, it will still be hard to elect a Republican in 2016 because of how much lib money will support the Dems (whoever they may be).

“Bush was an elite, but NOT a liberal elite...”

He was a mixed bag (and certainly preferable to the alternative); he appointed the justices that affirmed (for the first time) the right to bear arms, he gave us “No Child Left Behind” (which exposed a lot of the nonsense in public education, and applied pressure for improvement), and raised the child tax credit. At the same time, he got us into a fake war in Iraq, gave us a MediCare prescritpion entitlement, and kept the border open for our southern neighbors.
