English Teachers Across America Refusing to Teach Shakespeare, Cite Intolerance & Racism

FACEPALM.

Whitewashing history is one of the only things Democrats are good at. In their minds, not teaching future generations about the past will make them more enlightened – or something.

From Daily Wire:

A recent report says more and more American teachers are refusing to teach William Shakespeare in their classrooms, citing alleged racism and intolerance.

Among those who have refused to teach is Claire Bruncke, who taught English at Ilwaco High School in Washington state. “I asked my principal if there was a requirement for how much Shakespeare I needed to cover,” she said, according to the Mail.

She said she was told if she taught the “standards,” she’d be fine, so she dropped Shakespeare completely.

[…]

Another teacher, Liz Matthews, who teaches ninth-grade English at Hartford Public High School in Connecticut — where the student body is 95% black or Hispanic — said she bailed on Shakespeare and replaced him with works by minority authors.

It’s almost as if these educators, who are almost certainly liberal, forget the history of the current commander-in-chief.

For example, Joe Biden once said: “There’s less than one percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than four of five percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you’re dealing with. When you have children coming from dysfunctional homes, when you have children coming from homes where there’s no books, where the mother from the time they’re born doesn’t talk to them — as opposed to the mother in Iowa who’s sitting out there and talks to them, the kid starts out with a 300-word larger vocabulary at age three. Half this education gap exists before the kid steps foot in the classroom.

New Ultra-Woke ‘Monopoly’ Pits White Privilege against Race to Wipe Out White People and Capitalism

A new ultra-woke Monopoly-styled game called “Blacks & Whites” sends gamers into attacks on “white privilege.”

A new ultra-woke Monopoly-styled game called “Blacks & Whites” sends gamers into attacks on “white privilege” and gets them using race to destroy capitalism.

The game is an updated version o a 1970’s Monopoly ripoff that is being sold as the “Blacks & Whites: 50th Anniversary Edition.” The game’s description claims that race is “crucial to the player’s success in the game.”

The game purports to show that blacks can’t make it in the U.S.A. and the rules are stacked against black players.

A Thursday report from Wired’s Sebastian Skov Andersen succinctly sums up the game: “a ‘socially conscious’ tabletop game about privilege and inequity in real estate and American society.”

Never Sad, the duo made up of made up of black comedian Nehemiah Markos and white comedian Jed Feiman, received permission from the original game’s creator, the late Dr. Robert Sommer.

Sommer, an internationally renowned professor and psychologist at the University of California-Davis, originally crafted the game because he was “struck by how unrealistic” Monopoly was, the Wired report explained.

“In Monopoly, everyone starts out with the same amount of money,” he previously said. “That certainly doesn’t fit the real world. … I decided to change the rules and introduce disadvantaged players.”

The game pushes its “white privilege” lies by giving white players a million dollars to start out with, but black players only get ten thousand. From there, black players find costs to be prohibitive while white players can spend at will and still come out ahead. Black players constantly face the threat of jail while white players succeed.

A recent ad for the game warns, “Watch out for greedy white people or you may go bankrupt!”

“Capitalism and racism are inextricable!” one of the players, portrayed by Markos, responds during the ad.

Sen. Marco Rubio Introduces Bill to Hold Corporations to Account for Leftist Woke Policies

Marco Rubio has introduced a bill that would hold leftist corporations accountable for interfering in the legislative actions of the states.

Published

Florida Senator Marco Rubio has introduced a bill that would hold leftist corporations accountable for interfering in the legislative actions of the states.

As Real Clear Politics’ Alfredo Ortiz explained, “In an effort to appease liberal lawmakers who threaten them with punitive regulations, corporations have increasingly been wading into divisive political issues to advocate for Democratic Party priorities.”

For instance, you had the NBA, NCAA, and other sports refusing to hold games in states that have enacted conservative laws. Or, in another example, many corporations banded together to enact economic warfare against the state of Georgia for enacting voting reform laws. The news is filled with examples like this.

Many Americans are getting sick and tired of these left-wingers abusing their economic power to push extremist, un-American, left-wing political causes on us, forcing us all to live by them no matter what we want, no matter who we elect, and no matter what laws we support.

But Rubio is looking for ways to eliminate these attacks on our country.

As Ortiz explains:

Entitled CEOs shouldn’t be allowed to run roughshod over the interests of their shareholders, who are often vulnerable retirees and ordinary Americans who depend on strong stock performances and dividends to maintain their quality of life. Keep in mind that around 43% of the stock market is owned by those aged 65 and older, and most middle-class families have savings in the stock market. In other words, companies’ woke politics don’t only risk the savings of hedge fund millionaires.

Sen. Rubio’s bill empowers shareholders to protect themselves from woke CEOs by eliminating barriers preventing them from suing companies for prioritizing politics over profits. The bill requires executives to justify their political actions with concrete rationale for how their moves help the business. No longer will companies be able to get away with political virtue signaling based on gauzy or generic claims that their political preferences are best for the company. Corporate executives will think twice before they enter the political fray to further their political ambitions.

The Mind Your Own Business Act marks a significant step in the growing wokelash. Given the widespread opposition to corporate political interference and the detrimental impact it has on ordinary Americans, it won’t be the last.

Exactly right.

It’s time to end this economic warfare.
