Elite college students not proud of America

October 12, 2017

Rodgers and Hammerstein told us that children “have got to be carefully taught” to grow up into racists. But in recent years, too many of them have also been carefully taught to hate America and think that socialism – a system that inevitably results in oppression, poverty, misery and death – is just peachy. They’ve had it spoon-fed into their virgin brains that the Founding Fathers were murderers who enslaved people, but Che Guevara was a revolutionary hero. And the First Amendment should be jettisoned because it protects speech they disagree with (well, duh!)

Now, the depressing result: students at elite universities, having been raised in a cocoon of comfort and privilege provided by America that not even kings of bygone times could have imagined, now claim that they refuse to stand for the National Anthem because they don’t believe “America offers anything worth being proud of.”

Well, to be honest, there are some American college students I’m not feeling too proud of these days.

This demonstrates the cavernous gap between teaching students to think and teaching them what to think. If nothing else, let this sound the death knell for the idea that America is governed by the “best and the brightest” when we fill Washington almost solely with political office holders, bureaucrats and judges who have elite/Ivy League degrees.

    Do not forget, one does not turn a large ship quickly, nor anything of giant inertia. The ship of state, and the massive body of education, lies already told, and to be told, is of large inertia, terrible frightening damage has been done for generations, let alone by the first enemy American potus, barely, hussein. This man and most of his people were traitors, and subversives, of worse sort than the nazis, and communists who previously penetrated, and infiltrated government.

    They hate America, love themselves, and serve themselves first, America as a side issue, is served last, and badly. When hussein serves the muslim brotherhood, supplying arms, and aid, this is treason, the highest. Much more by many are criminal acts, and corrupt and crony acts, as well. They have worked to destroy ethics, honor, integrity, principles, and morals. All are essential for Liberty, which cannot exist long without them. Donald Trump does have honor, for America, and for our people. He is tough and has honor in spades for America.

    Do not expect improvement in knowledge, nor attitude for very many years to come, in these millennials. We need the massive effort of many like Dennis Prager, Prager U., Crash Courses, Victor Davis Hanson, Dinesh D'Souza, Mike Huckabee, Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell, and others coming online. We need tremendous efforts also from the wise and intelligent Patriotic Christian community, as well. They must be smart, and not silent anymore. There is God, there is Christ, even now provable in advanced science knowledge, for example through Hugh Ross's efforts, which are great just in themselves.

    The fight is against a very large evil, manifested in various forms, including mao, Khmer rouge, islam-all of it, nazis, communism, socialism, and even the evil of decrying education, as is a cultural manifestation of several cultures.

    “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”; -1 Timothy 2:5
    “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….” - Hosea 4:6


    America is worth all effort, all sacrifice, there is none other, which incorporates Divine love, and demonstrates it to people without, and most importantly, to those called American citizens. We live in God’s way, and that way does well include massive defense, explained in the Bible, we have sold our cloak to buy swords, and we always must so do, and defend our family and friends.

    If they are so miserable living here, why don't they just pack up and move to a country that shares their values? And this constantly bringing up the slavery issue...they have absolutely no clue about anything relating to slavery, none whatsoever...they throw the slavery issue out there because its fashionable for one thing and for another its their way of bashing the whites (ever hear of endentured servants?) and demanding they feel remorse and OWE them for something that occurred centuries ago. And the moment anyone tries to rebut the issue, here come the "racist" branding, another thing that white people are frightened of being accused of causing them to have to go out of their way to show just how UN-racist they are, to people, many of whom really don't know what a racist is - they just learned that word causes white people to cower in fear and start apologizing profusely for something that really didn't need an apology usually.

    It's hard for me to understand how one can grow up in our beloved nation and not love her and be proud of her. News of oppression and poverty in other countries is more available now than ever. So, there's no excuse for ignorance of the situation of most of the world. It's a blindness where some refuse to see the truth. God bless America and God bless you, Mike , for standing for truth.

    These people teaching now are the same people from the 60's and 70's who spit on our soldiers and called them baby killers. They hated the US then. They could not change things then so the started with the young. Really if they don't like it I am willing to start a fund to send them where they think it is better.
