Too many educators want our kids to hate America

May 18, 2013 by

GASTONIA, N.C. – George Mason University professor of economics Walter E. Williams recently penned an excellent column for North Carolina’s Gaston Gazette that might shed some light on why the Boston Marathon bombers hated America, and students across the country are learning to do the same.

The suspects – brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev – may have hated America before they allegedly attacked innocent citizens, but Williams points out their attendance at the University of Massachusetts could have helped fuel their hate.

“Maybe they hated our nation before college, but if you want lessons on hating America, college attendance is a good place to start,” Williams wrote. “Let’s take a look at it.”

Williams pointed to University of Hawaii professor Haunani-Kay Trask, who tells his students they “need to think very, very clearly about who the enemy is.

“The enemy is the United States of America and everyone who supports it,” Trask contends.

Princeton University professor Richard Falk believes former President George W. Bush was behind the terrorist attacks on New York City’s twin towers in 2001, and explains the recent Boston bombings are a result of “all kinds of resistance” generated by “the American global domination project.”

Williams provided numerous other examples of anti-American professors spreading their personal views in universities across the country:


“University of Southern California professor Darry Sragow preaches hate to his students in his regulation of elections and political finance class, recently telling them that Republicans are stupid, racist losers and that they are angry old white people.

“A few years ago, Rod Swanson, a UCLA economics professor, told his class, ‘The United States of America, backed by facts, is the greediest and most selfish country in the world.’

“Penn State University professor Matt Jordan compared supporters of voter ID laws to the Ku Klux Klan. Professor Sharon Sweet, an algebra teacher at Brevard Community College, told her students to sign a pledge that read ‘I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.’ Fortunately, the college’s trustees fired her.”

Unfortunately, many other radical types continue to peddle their left-wing personal views to tomorrow’s leaders. And naïve young students who don’t recognize political propaganda tend to accept what they hear as fact.

Erik Loomis, a professor at the University of Rhode Island, has called for National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre’s “head on a stick.” Georgetown law professor Louis Michael Seidman tells students America’s problems are tied to the U.S. Constitution, which he describes as “archaic” and “idiosyncratic” with “downright evil provisions.” That’s quite ironic, since Seidman is sworn to defend the document as a public defender in Washington, D.C., Williams notes.

Williams also points to anti-American indoctrination in K-12 public schools and cites several examples we’ve written about in recent years.

There was an English teacher in South Carolina that repeatedly stomped on the American flag in front of his students to illustrate his lessons, a Texas geography teacher who made students wear Islamic clothing and refer to September 11 terrorists as “freedom fighters,” and another Texas educator who forced students to sing the Mexican national anthem and recite that nation’s pledge of allegiance, Williams writes.

The radical teachers, Williams writes, are aided and abided by their unions. The California Federation of Teachers, for example, produced a classroom video last year that depicted “rich people” urinating on “poor people,” while actor Ed Asner narrates:

“(Rich people) love their money more than anything in the whole world. … Over time, rich people decided they weren’t rich enough, so they came up with ways to get richer,’” Williams quotes from the video.

Williams’ point is simple, and one that’s critical for all parents to understand.

“These people running our education system are destroying the minds and values of our young people, and we allow them to do it,” Williams wrote.
