For those of you who missed today's Lars Larson show (you have no excuse) you didn't get to hear a PSU teacher, Amanda Bryon, who teaches "The Art and Consequence of Enemy Making" tell Lars and his listeners that she believes that America is a terrorist nation, terrorists "are people too" and that America has a fascination with making enemies.
She also said that she disagreed with part of my blog that Lars had quoted. This is reassuring because having this lady disagree with you is incontrovertible proof that you are an American patriot.
But, I decided to look at what other offerings that PSU was brainwashing our kids with using taxpayer dollars. Read on...
Tom Hastings is another teacher at PSU who indoctrinates, err, instructs students in various classes like "Nonviolent Response to Personal Attack" (yes, that was his lunch money you took every day) and "Environmental Conflict Resolution" (Burning SUV's isn't technically violence)
On his official PSU bio his personal statement includes this "I've been arrested for nonviolent resistance to militarism many times and have gone to jails and prisons for these convictions. I regard Peace Education as one essential in creating a culture and ecology of peace and justice."
That's right, you saved and scrimped and sacrificed to send your kids to college so that they could be taught by a convicted felon who is proud of his prison time! I'm also not sure if his second sentence is even proper English. But he does have a lovely picture of a man behind bars with a bird (free spirit?) flying outside. Nothing like motivating students to become prison inmates...
Other course titles offered under the "conflict resolution" umbrella:
World for All
Creating a Peace System
Multicultural Competence in Organizations
Environmental Conflict Resolution
Red/Blue Values Conflict
PSU also offers the class Chicano/Latino Studies. Some course titles:
Latinos & the Law
Media Bias & Latinos
Perhaps Latinos have different laws than the rest of us, I'm not sure though, I haven't taken the class.
But my perennial favorite is "Women's Studies". I mean, how much do women have to study cooking, cleaning, laundry and submitting to their husbands? Some course titles:
Theater of the Oppressed
Women, Activism, & Social Change
Lesbian & Gay Literature
Intro to Queer Studies
History of Sexualities
For those of you wondering, ecofeminism is the practice of cooking vegetables for your husband while he watches football.
At what point do we cut these people off from their public funding? They don't support "open minds" or "diversity" as they claim, try being a conservative on campus. Try telling your fellow students in your feminist theory class that you oppose abortion. These are institutions designed to indoctrinate our children with the disease of liberalism.
