“Dangerous People Are Teaching Your Kids” is the title of this new video from Prager University — and what are conservatives doing about it? When it comes to the K-12 schools, the “school choice”/”school reform” movement is incredibly ineffectual. And how often do you hear about school choice from elected Republicans?
When it comes to higher education, how often do you witness real reform of taxpayer-funded higher education? Colleges like Hillsdale are doing yeoman’s work — and they deserve a lot of credit. But what else are conservatives doing on a large scale to combat this problem? In my view, not nearly enough.
Here is the intro to the PragerU video:
Dangerous people are filling the heads of young people with dangerous nonsense. Who are these people? They are what Jordan Peterson calls “the post-modernists:” neo-Marxist professors who dominate our colleges and universities. And here’s the worst part: we are financing these nihilists with tax dollars, alumni gifts and tuition payments. Time to wise up.
From the transcript:
You may not realize it, but you are currently funding some dangerous people.
They are indoctrinating young minds throughout the West with their resentment-ridden ideology. They have made it their life’s mission to undermine Western civilization itself, which they regard as corrupt, oppressive and “patriarchal.”
If you’re a taxpayer—or paying for your kid’s liberal arts degree—you’re underwriting this gang of nihilists.
You’re supporting ideologues who claim that all truth is subjective; that all sex differences are socially constructed; and that Western imperialism is the sole source of all Third World problems. They are the post-modernists, pushing “progressive” activism at a college near you.
They produce the mobs that violently shut down campus speakers; the language police who enshrine into law use of fabricated gender pronouns; and the deans whose livelihoods depend on madly rooting out discrimination where little or none exists.
