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.

    We got 8 years of this - right at the top from 2009 to 2017

    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.

    These kids are too young to appreciate the sacrifices that our military has given in all the wars we have
    been in. They don't understand having to struggle to eat. They are the privileged RICH...
    Their parents and their schools have let them down by not teaching personal responsibility, respect for
    others, .....Yes, slavery is a very dark blot on American history, but blacks have more opportunities
    now than ever before to be successful in life. Many choose the thug is that the white man's
    fault? Many choose guns and is that our fault? Grow up cry babies...there is plenty to be
    proud about of our country. Look how people came together and helped each other during the Las Vegas
    shooting...look how everyone came together to help Texas during hurricane Harvey......and there is always
    the small kindnesses that people do for each other every day that don't make the news. anyone who can
    afford to go to a college that charges $67,000 a year is privileged!!! Grow up, think for yourself.

    Dear Mike Huckabee, thank you for your contribution to America. We learn many truths from you. America is in a sad state today. we stand at a cross road. Only what is done for Christ will last. To bad our college students have been brain washed. I am with the POA pastor Gerald Mangun of the Pentecostal's of Alexandria. You have to go to college to be lost. College people learn how not to live for God. I believe as my mom used to tell me, they are educated fools.

    You are so right, Mike, but I am getting so tired of always hearing what is wrong! I want to start hearing more about what we can co about getting rid of our teachers who teach these things and how we can change our educational system. Originally, schools in America were often started by our religious institutions!

    Most college professors (sad to say) are liberals and this is the result!! Sad for America!!

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    First I must apologize for calling you Mike last time I left a message - I was very disrespectful - please forgive - thanks.
    Your are like a special friend and I respect you.
    The students are being taught about HATRED by their socialist teachers and if you hate everything it is difficult to understand LOVE.
    The students have to be taught about LOVE and RESPECT both for themselves, their families and their country.
    They are not getting LOVE and RESPECT information from home.
    Thanks and God Bless.

    One of my favorite authors, Lewis Grizzard (a very proud Georgian) once had a recommendation for the folks from up north who had invaded Atlanta back in the late 1970s and started finding all kind of problems there. His ready response to them was "Delta is ready when you are!!!" I think we need to use that on all of the current cry babies.

    And this is the reason America will fall as we get closer to The Second Coming of Christ.
