American Schools Are Failures: Most Americans Don’t Know What Bill of Rights Is

The poll tends to prove that liberals have succeeded in undermining America though the thorough destruction of the quality of our education.

Bill of rights

A new study of Americans finds that few have any idea what freedoms are protected by the first ten amendments of the Constitution nor do they know these amendments are called the Bill of Rights. It just shows that the liberals controlling our system of miseducation have succeeded in undermining this country and that our schools are some of America’s biggest enemies.

Our schools are failures at teaching and turning out Americans, certainly. But they are a great success at turning out morons and sheep, and this poll proves it.

The poll posted to StudyFinds.com finds that most Americans have some vague idea that our First Amendment rights are under attack, but when asked to detail just what the First Amendment is, most had no idea how to respond.

The new poll found that six in ten Americans thought our freedom of speech was under attack. That is a good thing… though it should be ten in ten. But, still, at least a majority understand that the left is attacking our rights.

Unfortunately, the study also found that most couldn’t name what rights the First Amendment covers nor could they even say how many Amendments make up the Bill of Rights, nor even say what that name even meant.

“Of the 2,000 adults who took part in the poll, half thought that ‘liberty’ is one of the five freedoms protected by the First Amendment, while nearly half (49 percent) believed ‘the pursuit of happiness’ was included,” the poll said. “Thankfully, only 3 percent named ‘life’ as one of the protected freedoms.”

I am not sure why the folks at StudyFinds thought it was “thankfully” that only a small percentage thought “life” was in the First Amendment but be that as it may.

The poll also found that only 26 percent of respondents knew that the first ten Amendments made up the Bill of Rights. And one in five had never even heard of the name “Bill of Rights.”

“The online epidemic of misinformation, false news stories and election disinformation campaigns pose significant threats to democratic rights. The respondents’ alarm is well-placed,” says Alan C. Miller, founder and CEO of the News Literacy Project, a national nonpartisan education nonprofit that teamed up with Samuel Hubbard to bring awareness to the First Amendment, in a statement.

The poll tends to prove that liberals have succeeded in undermining America though the thorough destruction of the quality of our education.

Millions of kids every year are being dumbed down and indoctrinated in leftism in our fetid schools. And this is being done by design. Liberals do not want educated Americans. They want indoctrinated sheep.

The left is against teaching what our founders wanted, what they planned, how they argued, where the compromised, and what they finally ended up bequeathing to us.

Benjamin Franklin is alleged to have told a woman that that the founding fathers had left posterity “a Republic, if you can keep it.” By that, he meant that a representative republic can only work with an informed and virtuous voting public.

Well, liberals do not want us to “keep” that republic. They want a malleable system open only to their whim, influence, and guidance and an educated populace is an impediment to their leftism.

They have totally eliminated the teaching of why America IS America. And this poll proves that the left is succeeding in destroying this country from within.

‘We Will Not Stop!’ Maxine Waters Says There May Be More ‘Impeachment Activity’ Later In 2020

Exactly what America does not want to hear…

Maxine Waters appeared on MSNBC on Sunday to virtually announce that the Senate will acquit Donald Trump. However, that doesn’t mean Democrats won’t stop trying to impeach a duly-elected president who has not committed a single crime. In other words, Republicans need to retain the Senate and win the House at the start of Trump’s second term in office so the nation can have any hope of putting this impeachment embarrassment to bed. Here’s what’s up, via Free Beacon: Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said Sunday that Democrats “will not stop” on impeachment and added that there may be more “impeachment activity” in the near future. “The subpoenas that I have issued that have gone through the lower courts are now going to be heard at the Supreme Court in March,” Waters said during an appearance on MSNBC. “We will not stop. Whether or not that leads to another impeachment activity, I don’t know.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gg4xP_uOy4&feature=emb_logo While on CNN late last year, Mad Max did what she does best and attacked POTUS for attempting to make America a safer place. She said, “There should be comprehensive immigration reform and not immigration reform based on exciting and inciting those people who have negative thoughts about others coming across our border, and basically working to use that information to promote himself in a campaign. And I think some of that is very racist.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewDay/status/1129367547046813697 Democrats today are a different breed. They care more for bashing Trump than they do helping their country. It’s not only sad, it’s downright un-American.

WATCH: Warren Doesn’t Understand How People Could Vote for ‘Someone Who Lies to Them’

Irony.

Despite claiming she was of Indian decent for decades only to have that myth publicly disproven over an embarrassing phone call, 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren think it would be best for the American people to choose a person for office who doesn’t lie. Does this mean she’s dropping from the race? After all, Warren has been caught lying on so many occasions that it’s kind of ridiculous. SMH. The irony. Oh, the irony. From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) refused to answer a question from a CBS reporter on Sunday about whether it was acceptable for a presidential candidate to lie to the American public. WATCH: https://twitter.com/cbszak/status/1218971964443893760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1218971964443893760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F442220-elizabeth-warren-how-could-the-american-people-want-someone-who-lies-to-them%2F The problem is that Warren can say whatever she wants and get away with it because she has the media on her side. Thanks, Obama. WATCH: Holy shit. I have Warren on video lying about where she sent her kids to school. Sarah Carpenter: “I read that your children went to private schools” Warren: “No my children went to public schools” https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1197972004412051457?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197972004412051457&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Reactions: Warren was confronted by an activist for sending her son to a private school, and denied doing so. Then she admitted to the ⁦@FreeBeacon⁩ that she sent her son to private school beginning in 5th grade. https://twitter.com/BrentScher/status/1198034214005940224?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1198034214005940224&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Holy shit. I’m the first to figure it out. I’m nearly certain Elizabeth Warren sent her son to an expensive private school in Austin Texas (Kirby Hall School). Warren has been trying to cover this up since she fights against school choice. https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1189032032464244736?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1189032032464244736&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F I found this yearbook entry for Alex Warren (born in 1976). It’s the only one. It’s Kirby Hall School. A private school right next to UT in Austin Texas (where Warren was teaching). https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1189032556240478209?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1189032556240478209&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Here’s the ONLY family photo I could find of Alex…
