As a substitute teacher in a virtually all white school in mostly white Marin County, I was tasked with giving out an assignment to students in a High School Government class. The High School was formerly named Drake High after the British explorer who discovered this part of Northern California. But being woke, the school is now simply called High School 1327 (its numeric address) while the local school officials figure out what to rename it. Sir Francis Drake a brave and magnificent servant of Queen Elizabeth the 1st – adventurer, explorer, but he had done something unforgivable today in woke America – he was reported to have transported slaves. Oops. He like other historical figures today, Drake must be erased. Done. Although changing signs at the school will cost a pretty penny, the real cost will be the cost of changing all the signs along the long and winding road that extends from the Bay to the Ocean known as Sir Francis Drake Blvd. Lots of money for new signs. I guess not so much for fixing potholes.
As for the School, no doubt they will spend a large portion of their new budget changing signs and not much on things that might actually improve education at the school. I wonder how much it will cost to jack hammer out the large Marble D donated by one of the previous graduating classes that sits in front of the Main Office? Given the strength of the teachers’ unions, the teachers who have been zooming remotely (and vacationing while most of us Proles suffered in the lockdown for a year) need not worry. If anything their salary and benefits will go up.
I’m reminded of the vacationing admitted Socialist in the Chicago Teacher’s Union who sadly was only reported by Breitbart.com:
The teacher I subbed for assigned 12 questions on the topic of voting rights and this was the intro to the assignment:
“For over a decade Republican lawmakers at the state level have been passing laws designed to reduce the number of voters. Some Republican legislators have openly admitted that their goal is to reduce the number of Democratic Party voters. Yet it is clear that these restrictions have a disproportionate impact on people of color, particularly African-Americans. This assignment’s purpose is to give you background on the issue of voting rights in America over the last half-century. It will also bring you up to date on the events of months since the 2020 election.“
Imagine if I said, for over 40 years Democrat lawmakers at the state, local and national level have been passing laws to open the southern border coordinating with illegal Sanctuary Cities with the express intent to flood the country with millions of “illegal” aliens in order to increase their voter roles to make “legal” citizens – especially Republican or Conservative voters and their votes irrelevant – essentially turning the country into a one party tyranny. In addition, Democrats have used the Covid Pandemic to radically change the way the country votes – expanding the days in order to “vote harvest”, eliminating IDs to verify citizenship, and essentially making it easier to commit voter fraud and win close elections by cheating. Although the Democrats have used their allies in Big Media and Big Tech to spread propaganda that Republicans are trying to make it more difficult for Blacks to vote, the reality is that open borders advocated by the left, Globalists and Democrats have disproportionately harmed Blacks with lower wages and lost jobs – especially for unskilled or poor black citizens. And now Large Multi-national Corporations have joined in with the one party Democrat Socialist movement by backing boycotts and supporting Fascist groups like Antifa and especially BLM to the tune of millions of dollars. The calculus appears to be that it is worth being extorted and bribed to the tune of millions of dollars for these Corporations to insure their monopoly or near monopoly status – while small businesses go up in smoke – either through Govt inaction during the Covid mandated lockdowns or literally as BLM and Antifa riot and burn these small businesses to the ground. And unlike the deep pockets of the Big multi-nationals, many of these small companies will never come back. The Winners – Fascists in the Government Corporatist Complex. The Losers – American citizens now turned into little more than serfs working for a one party tyrannical state and just a handful of Big Monopolies and Oligarchs.
I wonder how long it would take before I would be fired by the school for being a propagandist if I gave out my assignment rather than one given out by the paid propagandist calling himself a “teacher” and an “educator”? Anyway, my point of view has more concrete evidence than the other but facts don’t count in this woke cancel culture. Only power. Sadly, I am not optimistic. Virtually all of the students I questioned in a 15 minute Q&A session were either totally ignorant of the Georgia Voting Act, and what they did know was simply parroting talking points, such as red herrings like the Act forbids giving water to poor blacks trying to vote. (The law just forbids electioneering which is supposed to be a national law and a given). I couldn’t find one student who wasn’t completely brainwashed. All white kids. All learning to hate themselves and consider themselves racists because they were born white. And the only answer to this unforgivable thing they had no control of – their skin color – was to hate Republicans, their country, and themselves.
