Cultural Sabotage and Collusion

The Zimmerman case gave the whole country, as well as the rest of the world, a window into the ignorance and deeducation of our children. The bankruptcy of Detroit is another window for the oblivious of what’s happening to our country and the politicians who made it possible. Let’s look backward so we can put the decline of our country in perspective.

My husband and I left the Atlanta area in 2000, after the Clinton’s Empowerment Zone initiative gave more than $200,000,000 to poor city areas. Since I was an appointed member of a county Human Relations Commission I was invited to a huge gala announcement. These funds were supposed to be used by different organizations to fix urban neighborhoods. A few years later the Atlanta Journal did a story asking where all the money went. So, I was not surprised to see that fraud and corruption marked the initiative by Democrat and very white-black Mayor Bill Campbell, ending up in federal prison. Not surprisingly, Detroit was another recipient of taxpayer largesse, and the lawlessness that apparently goes hand in hand with government programs. Think Kwame Kilpatrick, the thug Democrat mayor of Detroit convicted of fraud and corruption.

Many people were shocked by Rachel Jentel admitting that she had a 3.0 GPA. I wasn’t. I worked in the school system and know that no matter how bad a student is, or how disrespectful and disruptive, a teacher is forced through bureaucratic rules and its enforcers, the administration, to pass all students no matter that the only thing they know are the latest rap lyrics. Middle class parents pay private schools or home school as well as pay taxes that keep the education bureaucracy alive. They left cities like Detroit and Atlanta so they could live in peace and not watch everything around them be destroyed. We are now paying for a deeducated population with a white-black president who managed to transfer to Harvard after a self proclaimed average performance at Occidental College. His adopted home of Chicago boasts black murders daily, but those guys must not look like him. Personally, I hear my grandmother as she watched her neighborhood change. “How do they burn brick?” she asked. I’m still wondering.

Education on Trial

It’s getting harder and harder to write about specific news because everyday the news gets crazier and crazier and more bizarre. I’ve been following the Zimmerman case since the beginning because I found it extremely unusual that Zimmerman was arrested MONTHS later, after the police decided not to arrest him based on the following law and the evidence that they saw:

Under statute 776.012 Use of force in defense of person.–A person is justified in the use of force, except deadly force, against another when and to the extent that the person reasonably believes that such conduct is necessary to defend himself or herself or another against such other’s imminent use of unlawful force. However, the person is justified in the use of deadly force only if he or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony.

The “star witness” Rachel Jeantel is an embarrassingly ignorant young lady (and I use that term loosely). She is a nineteen year old, who is still in high school and cannot read or write cursive. In fact, I seriously doubt that her reading level is above an elementary level .This “star witness” couldn’t put an intelligible and coherent sentence together and was a major indictment of the public school system.

The rot of our education system didn’t start yesterday. My husband had a grammar teacher who would start everyday with,” Is you be havin yo homework duhday? That was in 1981. When he finally complained, he was sent to the office and was told he was “insubordinate.”

We are watching the state of our country play out in this political lynching disguised as a trial. Let’s hope the jury has the critical thinking skills and the courage needed to give an ethical verdict. Let’s also hope that the millions of TV viewers recognized the failure of the Statist education system sitting on that witness stand.
