It is the teachers now who have the foul mouths and demeaning words.
We heard about the latest planned penetration of children's minds today....... but first, pleasantries with which to start and finish.
I have been busy the past few days enjoying fine company and out and about in the beautiful weather we have been experiencing here at the Tavern. Hence my being quiet for several days. And I have had the tradies in doing a bit of refurbishment after my friend Cherie pointing me in the direction of someone else's Hotel in Italy, from whom I have purloined a nice idea. I shall show you later.
Now, the darknesses. I hear also that the Capital of Victora is showing signs of a European scourge. Riff-raff line and live on the streets around the rail stations even to the point of having matresses on the pavements.
Shades of Paris, eh?
Let me pull a few pints while Rebecca Urban tell us of the teachers who are going from bad to worse.
As I often point out the teaching workforce in Oz is predominantly female. Women are fine expressions of humanity and have some quite beautiful qualities, but when commanded and directed by dark forces, such as their Union and Left-wing agitators, they can be all too easily led by the nose (often these days by the nose-rings they wear) down quite nasty paths.
Led by these scum, amongst others.
A little background. Here is the font of filth exposed. LaTrobe University.
Our teachers, and note that is the empathetic, nurturing, communications skilled ladies who dominate our schools are in turn 'directed by the worst elements that you do not even know about. As Lucas Rosas tells us. I will let you listen to all he says later in your own time but just let him touch on it here:
Exposed: the Communists teaching your children
These are the people you pay through your taxes to teach your kids’ teachers.
|Manolya Moustafa of Socialist Alternative|
It needs to be reiterated, these people are not simple ALP union hacks or mushy Greens who like trees, these people are the most radical political extremists in our society. These groups openly boast that they want to overthrow the government. They preach about the need to abolish Parliament, the armed forces, the police, the courts, the constitution, the Australian national flag, national borders, the concept of gender, free speech, free assembly, the right to own property and the traditional family.
Do follow up and read. You will be horrified by the 'ordinariness' of some of the people Lucas exposes. That pleasant-looking young woman above is the pretty tip of an iceberg.And not only do you pay them to teach the people who teach your kids, you also pay them to formulate the curriculum more sane teachers are forced to teach by.
Now this way comes more of the lumbering Beast, the insidious mutilating of children's minds, and spreading to other disciplines. Rebecca has been keeping her ears open:
Concerns as identity politics creep into the classroom.
English students face being drilled in the politics of class, race, gender and sexuality, as an influential teacher advocacy group seeks to push social justice issues into the classroom.
The Victorian Association for the Teaching of English, a professional body backed by the state government, will host its annual conference next month, unveiling a program to highlight “the iconoclasts, the dissidents and the marginalised” and celebrate individuals “who will not, or cannot, swim in the mainstream”.
The 'mainstream' nowadays of course IS leftism, cultural marxism and the destruction of family and society, even while the lefties pretend it is not so that they can maintain 'victimhood'. "Ve heff vays off makink your Kinder conform."
Headlining the two-day event will be former Australian Human Rights Commission president Gillian Triggs and GetUp! campaigner Shen Narayanasamy, who will deliver keynote speeches. Left-leaning political commentator Van Badham will also appear as a guest speaker.
|GetUp! in get up|
For those overseas visitors, these three are prime nasties intent on causing as much mayhem as they can, whilst in one case being fed hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars in salary and now pension - Triggs: and one by Bill Shorten's largesse with union funds taken as an additional tax from workers and fed to the lefty influencers, GetUp!;
and a thoroughly filthy and lunatic feminist who seems to garner much support from the dregs of the lady-left. That's bad'un Badham on the left.
When I hear 'zozchial juztitz' I reach for my sword !The focus of the event, which VATE president Emily Frawley confirmed had been designed with social justice in mind, has alarmed some education experts, who have questioned the role of “political activists” at the event and the push to embed divisive “identity politics” into the curriculum.
Sessions include “Stand Up For The Outsiders’’, which will explore teaching strategies for “empowering students to speak to issues of class, gender and race”, and ‘‘We Want Gender Equality’’, on “how the plight of woman over time has not changed”.
Soon being White, of European stock and English-speaking with be 'different' too but do not hold your breath waiting for some positive acknowledgement. We seem to have imported the worst of America's leftist, racist teacher disease.There will also be a discussion of Jeanette Winterson’s 1987 novel The Passion, which is billed as “post modernism, queer theory and a romping tale to boot”, while ‘‘Reflections On Growing Up Different In Australia’’ will look at “migration, racism and identity” in various texts.
Another session will advise teachers how to deliver the Victorian government’s Respectful Relationships program a family violence initiative criticised for pushing gender theory onto children through English texts in the middle years.
Details of the conference have emerged in the wake of research by the Institute of Public Affairs that pointed to a rise of identity politics in university history courses.
The IPA’s Western civilisation program director Bella d’Abrera
questioned what “political activists” were doing at a conference “about English teaching to schoolchildren”.
“This conferences shows that identity politics has not also (sic) (only) permeated the teaching of history in Australian universities, but it is also deeply embedded in English teaching in Victorian secondary schools,” Dr d’Abrera said.
“There is no place for identity politics in our classrooms.”
Australian Catholic University senior research fellow Kevin Donnelly said it was disappointing to see teachers emphasise ideology over good grammar, spelling, punctuation and literary appreciation.
“Instead of English teaching being about giving a balanced view of literature, it’s now more about offering a critique of society, particularly Western society, misogyny, inequality and capitalism,” Dr Donnelly said.
“A lot of kids leave school without a strong foundation of what is good or bad literature.”
Dr Donnelly, a former English teacher and one-time member of VATE, said the association appeared to have been captured by the left.
That is sleight of hand. Mendacity. It is all ultimately Taxpayer-funded. YOUR monies, coerced from your wallets, are being used to pay for these nasties to plan their assault on children.Ms Frawley defended the conference, which had always “traversed the educational, cultural, political landscape”. This year’s event would feature “diverse line-up of presenters”, she said.
“The brief of all presenters is to speak to the themes of the conference, drawing on their expertise and considering their audience,” Ms Frawley said. “We want English teachers to be engaged and challenged, to consider how they can best stand up for their students, and what the role of English content and pedagogy is here.”
Ms Frawley confirmed that the organisation received funds from the department for a range of programs, but the conference itself was not government-funded.
Several voices around the bars were heard above the hubub as I handed Rebecca her well earned drink.
Alarming as this is, do not underestimate the rebellious spirit of the young and the power of the internet.
I have had some very reassuring conversations with young family members aged from 16 to 25 years.They and their friends are very aware of the indoctrination that is being being attempted in English and Social Science classes and they despise these subjects and their associated teachers.
They know from bitter experience that to even question, let alone try and present an alternative opinion, can seriously affect their grades and University entrance, so they keep quiet and keep their heads down in school, and post nothing on Face Book.
Hanne also said:Once the get home they go straight onto the internet to look for the alternative view and find it on sites like Breitbart and the many Canadian and US debaters who actively question the status quo. They will express their views within small circles of trusted friends, but are very careful to keep quiet if a known activist is within earshot. They are not happy being silenced at school, and get even more unhappy when they get to University and are again silenced and continually harassed by placard-waving, slogan-chanting aggressive SJWs.
Social media may be an echo chamber for the SJWs, but the internet is a lot bigger than just social media and a growing number of the young are finding the alternative ideas and the robust debate they crave on the internet.
A rebellion is brewing.
Both make good points. It is easy to be discouraged but we must remain optimistic and look to other voices. The young can be easily fooled but they also have a penchant for taking quite an opposite tack.Is there such a thing as a “stupidity Ponzi scheme”? That’s what I’m calling this madness which will ultimately collapse under its own weight.
Yesterday on Fox News they showed another idiot from one of their universities claim that mathematics is racist and a white supremacy subject.
I don’t know where this stupidity is taking us but when the only engineers we’re capable of producing are social engineers maybe one of these loonies might just take a moment and wonder who’s left to build the bridges or treat the sick.
YOU though, adults, with experience and an ability to think clearly, must become more than just a little familiar with the extent of the problem.
Now. Let me move on.
Some nicer news.
Cherie has been swanning around Italy. You can follow her travels .... there >>>> http://www.cheriesplace.me.uk/blog/
One place she came across has inspired me to rename my restaurant - actually, name it, as it hasn't had a name of its own before. So I am naming it after young Percy who released me from my pain. And my Kingdom.
The Ristorante Parzival.
So, drop by one evening. Sample our fine wines and Ales, delivered by a messenger from my Supplier Himself. Sit in the evening sunshine and cool, fragrant breezes. Sniff deep the Frangipani at the front doors. Listen to the lefties whine outside the hedges.
Eat, drink, and be Holy.
