Congressman Says Charlotte Schools Pushing Anti-Gun Agenda, Demands Federal Investigation

Published

on

It’s no secret that public schools in our modern society are less about providing a quality education to children as a means of equipping them to function as well adjusted adults and has become about indoctrinating them to become loyal wards of the state.

We’ve seen this time and time again, especially in the gun control debate. Right after the tragic shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, a national movement of young people held a March for Our Lives rally, geared toward pressuring elected officials into creating legislation that would limit the Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens.

Part of the protest was a school walk-out, an activity many educational facilities actually encouraged. If that isn’t indoctrination, what is?

Congressman Robert Pittenger recently spoke out against the anti-gun agenda being pushed by public schools in Charlotte, demanding U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos investigate the matter.

Here’s more from the Charlotte Observer:

His prime example: Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ reaction to a principal’s videotaped remarks about gun culture, delivered during a student “walkout” at Collinswood Language Academy on April 20 to demand safer schools. Student organizers and several parents said the impromptu comments, which interrupted a guest speaker, were bizarre and inappropriate.

In response to a Charlotte Observer query, CMS said that “appropriate actions have and will be taken to address concerns regarding this incident.”

“Incident? An educator shared a different viewpoint with her students and encouraged them to get to know her. Quick! Call the thought police,” Pittenger wrote in a weekly column for The Robesonian newspaper.

Pittenger, a Republican whose 9th District includes Charlotte, wrote that he has heard other reports of Charlotte administrators helping plan anti-gun protests, failing to inform parents and forcing students to attend those events even if they wanted to opt out.

At the end of the day, what’s clear is that there is most definitely an agenda being pushed on students in public schools and it’s without question progressive in origin.

Schools are not supposed to be teaching children what to think, but how to think. Equipping them to engage in critical thinking, how to formulate their views in appropriate mediums of expression, and how to engage in a civil debate with individuals who hold different views from their own.

That along with basic reading, writing, and mathematics, is all that students should be learning.

If politics are going to be brought into the classroom, then both sides of an issue need to be respectfully represented and given equal care and concern when brought up as part of class discussions.

That simply isn’t what’s happening right now, which is why Pittenger and many others are so concerned with the current happenings in schools across the country.

New Report Says Biden Allies Considering Scaling Back Public Speaking; Reason Why Is Hilarious

Too funny! Can’t Take Uncle Joe anywhere!

Published

When you take a good look at the Democratic Party’s talent pool for the upcoming 2020 presidential election, it becomes clear pretty quickly they are scraping the bottom of the barrel. Former Vice President Joe Biden is currently the party frontrunner and given the massive number of gaffes he’s already had on the campaign trail, it’s pretty obvious he’s a really bad choice. The man is simply clueless. And don’t think this has gone unnoticed by his own people. It hasn’t. In fact, his closest allies are thinking of limiting his public speaking engagements to avoid any more verbal slip-ups. via The Daily Wire: “Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering the former vice president’s schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days,” reports The Hill. “The allies, growing increasingly nervous about Biden’s verbal flubs, have said it’s an approach that’s been suggested to campaign officials on the heels of the former vice president’s stumbles.” Indeed, Biden has practically been making a gaffe a week at this stage in the game. Last week alone, the former vice president committed two gaffes in just under 24 hours when he told a crowd of supporters he values “truth over facts” and then later told the Asian and Latino Coalition PAC “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.” “We should challenge these students, we should challenge students in these schools and have advance placement programs in these schools,” Biden told the Asian and Latino Coalition PAC, in comments reported by Fox News. “We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.” Boy, that last one is a real doozy, isn’t…

Israel Finally Grants Rashida Tlaib’s Request To Visit The Country. Her Response Speaks Volumes

This woman is unbearable.

Published

Just hours after Israel finally granted Rep. Rashida Tlaib her request to come and visit family she has in the country, she turns around and declines the offer. Why? Well, the answer should be pretty darn obvious. The whole thing was nothing more than a political ploy to buy her some favor with the left and further paint Israel and Jews to be the bad guys, a game she’s playing with her buddies in “The Squad” from the very beginning of her time in office. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “My sity wanted to pick figs [with] me. I broke down reading this [and] worry every single day after I won for my family’s safety,” Tlaib said in a series of tweets. “My cousin was texting me which photo of [Omar] & I they should put on a welcoming poster when I heard the news. I couldn’t tell her.” “When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions,” she continued. “I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me [and] use my love for my sity to bow down to their oppressive [and] racist policies.” The Israeli government initially blocked Tlaib from visiting the country citing her vocal support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish the Jewish State by politically and economically starving the country. The Anti-Defamation League considers BDS to be the most “prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence,” and given Tlaib’s vocal support of this effort, it’s not a surprise the people of Israel would be hesitant to let her come into the country. In 2017, Israeli Knesset passed an anti-BDS law that blocks those who are foreign activists from entering the nation. With…
