Skip to comments.Charlie Daniels: The Dumbing Up of America
Posted on 03/02/2020 9:18:12 AM PST by jazusamo
We have long heard the phrase The dumbing down of America to describe the effort of the Democratic Party to indoctrinate, under-educate, immigrate and acclimate, to influence the coming elections to favor the Democrat candidates.
Usually, when we think about this process, we tend to imagine it to be the poorly educated, illegal aliens, the huddled masses who dwell generationally at the bottom of the prosperity chain, looking for someone to blame their plight on.
And such a movement does exist in those echelons as the progressive wing of the Democratic Party strives to tilt the playing field by hook, crook or numbers until they have achieved an unbeatable majority at the polls.
What has actually slipped through the back door is the dumbing up of America, a movement which is aimed at the supposedly best and the brightest who populate the universities and colleges which have, for all practical purposes and intents, been taken over by the flower child generation of professors who are atheists, socialists, ultra-liberal intelligentsia who feel guilty that America is the most successful nation on the face of the earth.
If you stop and remember, the most harmful espionage in modern times was purported by a gaggle of British Traitors known as the Cambridge Five, Cambridge being considered one of the worlds greatest universities.
Kim Philby, Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess, Anthony Blunt and John Cairncross were recruited by Soviet Intelligence while they were at Cambridge in the 1930s, after which they all went on to careers in the British government. And so valuable was the information they passed on, they were known in the KGB as the Magnificent Five.
I use the above only to emphasize how very vulnerable young people are at that stage of their lives and many of them -- unfortunately -- fall for the fallacies they constantly hear from their professors, that socialism is the epitome of political systems, the only fair and equitable remedy to the unfairness capitalism has inflicted on mankind and that income redistribution and government-run social services are the ultimate answers to all societys unfair woes.
I wont go into the abject misery communism has wrought on the human race; one only has to look around at Russia, Eastern Europe, Venezuela et al. to see the wreckage and carnage, which the professors conveniently always leave out.
Just before beginning the writing of this piece I read an outline of Bernie Sanders plan for paying for social programs he would adopt if he becomes president and, its easy, for even a minimally educated hillbilly like me, to see that there is no way on earth that his taxing, confiscating, regulating and basically controlling the industry in America would ever pay for the multi-trillion-dollar programs he proposes.
For one thing, there would be very little wealth left in the country to confiscate because the day after he won the election, money would fly out of this country to safe havens like Switzerland and other offshore financial facilities, well before his inauguration.
Also, there would be much less industry to control as manufacturing would begin a mass exodus, taking millions of jobs with them.
Bernie Sanders would begin his presidency with the worst depression this nation has ever known already in full stride.
And by the way, one of his savings would be massive cuts in the military budget, and in this day of challenge and danger, well, you figure it out.
The Green New Deal alone would break the bank.
But the problem with the dumbing down and dumbing up is that the people involved dont realize that the money for all this free stuff has to come from somewhere and after exhausting the wealthy and chasing industry out of the country, where does it come from?
Out of the pockets of whomever is left, including the deceived, who will curse Bernie Sanders and socialism, but all too late.
America, as they knew it, will be gone, bankrupt, in unpayable debt, with a depressed and angry population.
Oh, and by the way, a revolution will be impossible, unless you want to use slingshots and baseball bats, cause Bernie done got your guns.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops, our police, and the peace of Jerusalem.
God Bless America

One man, one vote, one time.
You can vote your way into socialism, but you’ll have to shoot your way out.
Devil went up to Georgia.
BTW, did anyone notice that Trump calls them government, not public, schools? - just another reason to love him!
Amen to that, well said.
Always wondered about the original lyrics....
Georgia is DOWN from Hell? :-)
Right on! It's a hotbed of indoctrination.
No. The Devil came UP to Boston and then went DOWN to Georgia.
I wouldn’t call them “schools” either. They’re more like government indoctrination centers. The vanguard of communism.
Lets Wrap This FReepathon Up, Folks Donate Today!
I figured the devil was climbing Mt Elbrus and came down to Tbilisi.
Thanks, was worth watching.
I’ve been to Boston and they DO talk like that. :-)
Someone needs to ask Bernie if “Medicare for All” includes all elected officials and those on the government payroll.
Ah yes, Granny’s War of Northern Aggression. :-)
We forgive but we never forget!(grins!!)
As another FReeper said a few weeks ago, A Socialist is just a Communist who hasn’t murdered anyone yet.
I need to make up some Bumper Stickers to use after the Rat Convention Riots in July.
Why should we listen to a musician?
“Devil went up to Georgia.”
But she didn’t get elected...
Generally speaking you make a good point.
If you do a keyword search of charliedaniels and read some of his many columns you’ll see he’s a man of wisdom.
