Liberal Agenda

Texas Schoolbooks

One of the most fiercely contested battlegrounds in modern American society is the public education system, where a liberal agenda is relentlessly promoted to the nation’s young people. Whether it’s pushing the homosexual agenda or teaching controversial scientific theories as if they were facts conservatives face a constant struggle to keep politics out of the classroom, and in this fight Texas has long been recognized as key terrain. Because of the way the state’s education system works it makes huge purchases of school textbooks every few years, and to win those orders publishers tend to tailor books to what Texas educators want. That’s good news for the nation because Texas is traditionally conservative, but in recent years more and more secular and leftist pressure groups have been trying to influence the content that will be taught in American schools.
The struggle to prevent interference in textbook selection hit the headlines four years ago when a coalition of secularist groups fought to prevent books mentioning the key role of Christianity in developing the US Constitution, and it erupted again this year over the purchase of new social studies texts. There were several issues at stake, including the extent to which the Founding Fathers were influenced by their Judeo-Christian traditions, controversy over the effects of affirmative action and an excessive focus on slavery as a cause of the Civil War. There were also several scientific controversies, with the two biggest being promotion of extreme climate change propaganda and the perennial topic of the theory of evolution.
Under pressure from the various groups to disregard the state’s latest (2010) education standards in favor of a progressive agenda, the State Board of Education has spent several months trying to preserve the standards as much as possible while defusing the issue. Agreement was finally reached last week on removing several graphics that had been labeled “offensive”; in the end several hundred changes were made by publishers. Unfortunately the Board was split along party lines, with all five Democrat members refusing to seek consensus and insisting on the full list of requested changes. At the end of the day the revised textbooks were approved 10-5, but the fuss is a good illustration of the way politics is being forced on young people – often with the active connivance of the federal government.
Democrats know as well as anyone else that books adopted by Texas are likely to be chosen by most other states in the future, so their wish list gives valuable clues to what the left plan on spreading through the public school system. Common themes, apart from doubtful scientific theories, seem to be a determined effort to play down the role of Christianity in the development of American society (tied to a promotion of Islam as an alternative religion) and an attack on the principle of states’ rights. Texas has managed to win a qualified victory over this agenda for the moment, but with the new books scheduled to start appearing in classrooms next year parents and local school boards will need to be vigilant for any attempts to sneak in the politically correct versions.

Immigration News

Immigration controversy has been a constant theme of the Obama presidency, with many Americans worried that the president’s liberal policies in this area will bring about catastrophic changes in American society. Those worries are now coming very close to home with news over the last week that Obama plans a wide-reaching amnesty for illegal immigrants – and is willing to resort to an executive order if Congress tries to intervene.
Obama’s latest idea is to grant “deferred action” – basically an indefinite freeze on deportation procedures – to any illegal immigrant who came to the USA as a child. The same privilege will be handed to parents of US citizens, permanent legal residents and a whole raft of other categories. The immediate result will be freedom to remain for at least 5 million people, but the longer term impact is likely to be a lot more serious.
Veteran conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly told World Net News last week she believes there’s a very sinister motivation behind the White House proposals. Most illegal immigrants, if they’re eventually given US citizenship and the right to vote, will give their support to the party that let them in – the Democrats. It’s gerrymandering on a national scale and the numbers involved are enough to change the balance of political power forever. The media hasn’t missed the fact that this plan is going forward despite the nation having soundly rejected Obama’s policies in this month’s elections. It’s a worrying tactic – if the voters don’t support you just import a bunch of new ones who will. This has a lot of people very worried.
If Obama moves ahead with an executive order there’s little Congress can directly do to stop him, so leading conservative figures are now urging the House and Senate leadership to take more rigorous action in the event the amnesty is forced through. Richard Viguerie has called on Republicans to withhold part of the government’s funding unless the will of the people is respected and suggests that a government shutdown would be another appropriate response. He has also predicted widespread public discontent if this administration flouts democracy so blatantly, and he’s very likely right.
The issue is that as sitting president, Obama has the power to push this law through if he chooses, but any veneer of popular support for it vanished with the GOP’s electoral victory two weeks ago. It’s very clear that the American people have lost patience with the Democrats and their soft line on border violations. Unfortunately if the president is unscrupulous enough he can get his way even in the face of unified opposition from both houses and the American people themselves; from what’s being said right now it seems like Obama is at least contemplating that. The danger is that unlike many acts of political spite this one could have consequences that can’t be so easily reversed. A conservative president might be able to overturn a deportation freeze, but what about any illegals who’ve managed to get American citizenship before that happens? Democracy means doing what the American people want, not creating a new “American people” that supports what you plan to do.

Is the US becoming a police state?

A 19-month-old boy is in a medically induced coma after a 3am SWAT raid on his aunt’s home. Alecia Phonesavanh was visiting her sister in law in Habersham County, Georgia, when the local police decided to arrest her cousin on suspicion of selling $50 worth of marijuana. This minor crime apparently warranted a full-scale assault by armed police that ended with a stun grenade being thrown into the crib where Alecia’s son was sleeping. The blast left the toddler with serious burns and injuries to his face and chest – wounds that may prove fatal.

Is The Media Becoming More Liberal

Let the Republican Party tell it, there are no Conservative news channels with the exception of FOX NEWS. However, most news outlets, such as 60 Minutes, and the NBC Nightly News, give both parties equal coverage. The outcry is typically from the extreme right who are upset to see their antiquated culture being rejected by their more liberal children and grand children. Perhaps the issue is not with the media but rather with the agenda of radical conservatives. Major news outlets only have one agenda, and that’s securing higher ratings. Therefore, the stories covered in the media are dictated by the country’s political climate and not the other way around. When people want change, they’re more prone to follow the Democratic Party. If the liberals are getting more attention, it’s caused by the overwhelming demand for change, and equal rights for all people.

How US Media Influences Politics

In the United States, many citizens and influential politic figures look at mass media as their source of information, education and even entertainment. It is difficult to assess the huge influence US media has on the public and on political people. In the arena of policy-making, the influence of mass media has shaped the development of the government and has led to issuing various laws. Media has had a strong voice in politics for a long time. For example, in 2007, Washington Post published an exposé featuring the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. In response to this, the U.S. army started a thorough investigation which meant the improvement of the facility. The conclusion – media coverage can directly influence politics and furthermore can change or even improve people’s lives.

The Liberal Solution: Assault a Conservative?

Ok, here is what happened: On March 31, 2005, Pat Buchanan, conservative commentator and former presidential candidate, was giving a speech at Western Michigan University when some 24-year-old ding-dong, who apparently did not like what he was hearing, decided the appropriately mature and tolerant behavior would be to attack Mr. Buchanan with a bottle of salad dressing. I do not know the motives of this nut, whether he was going crown Mr. Buchanan across the noggin, but he ended up “dousing” him with salad dressing instead while screaming, “Stop the bigotry.”
