 Hannity igniting revolt against left-wing profs

Sick of indoctrination, Sean urges students to expose propaganda

August 22, 2009    WorldNetDaily.com

November 28, 2005    By Joe Kovacs

Sean Hannity

College students bombarded with the personal political views of their professors are being urged by talk-show host Sean Hannity to fight back with hard evidence of purported indoctrination.

"All you college kids out there, check your state laws, check your campus laws," Hannity said on his national radio program.

"Get your little tape recorders if legal, and I want you to start recording these left-wingers. Bring it to this program and we'll start airing it every single time on this program. I'm sick of this indoctrination. I'm sick of this left-wing propaganda."

Hannity's call to action comes in the wake of the case of Rebecca Beach, a 19-year-old freshman at Warren County Community College in Washington, N.J., who, as WND first reported, was sharply rebuked by an English professor for her announcement of a campus program featuring decorated Iraq war hero Lt. Col. Scott Rutter.

In an e-mail from professor John Daly to Beach, Daly wrote: "Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors."

John Daly

He also said he would ask his students to boycott the event and vowed "to expose [her] right-wing, anti-people politics until groups like [Rebecca's] won't dare show their face on a college campus."

"That's free and open exchange of ideas and opinions on a college campus," Hannity commented sarcastically. "That's really cultivating freedom of thought."

WND broke the news that Daly submitted his resignation Tuesday just moments before an emergency meeting by the college's board of trustees to decide his fate.

But according to Hannity, the resignation is not the end of the case, saying, "This ought to be the beginning."

"This is now the new paradigm that I want to see college kids around the country pick up on," he said. "That is whenever you have the left-wing professors that are abusive to conservatives, that degrade you, that call you names, that use ad-hominem attacks, that are punishing you for your political point of view, that are purposely trying to indoctrinate you with extremist left-wing views – if it is legal, tape them. If it is not legal, take verbatim notes, get witnesses, bring these articles to the school newspapers, bring it to the local media. Expose these people for the abusive professors that they are, and I guarantee you when there's a series of these instances where we expose these people, I guarantee you this indoctrination process is going to stop dead in its tracks. ...

"Fear is a great motivator, and the fear that these left-wingers are going to get fired or be held accountable for their mean-spirited comments against people or their indoctrination is going to be the single-biggest motivation we ever see to get them to stop doing what they're doing to college kids around the country."

Beach agreed, telling Hannity, "It is intimidating, and [professors] will tell you things to make you not want to stand out and expose them. The American people need to know what they're paying for, what they're paying for their children to receive at these schools. It's not an education, it's indoctrination, and they're intimidated from speaking out the truth that they know."

The scant newspaper coverage of the case was also blasted by fellow talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, who noted the headline in New Jersey's Express-Times newspaper Wednesday read, "Provoked professor leaves WCCC post."

"Provoked professor? Unbelievable!" exclaimed Limbaugh. "Not that the student was provoked, not that the school was provoked, not that the Iraq war vet was provoked, and not that the commanding officers in Iraq were provoked, because it was suggested by this guy that they be shot."

On that aspect, Beach told Hannity, "They really turned the tables and they make it look like I am restricting his free speech rights now as an American citizen where that's not even what it was to begin with. ... It makes me look like the bad guy."

Hannity offered to speak at the college to help defend Beach, and is hoping to face Daly in person, despite the fact he quit his position.

"It's really brave of him to pick on a 19-year-old girl," Hannity said. "I want to see him send such an e-mail to me. And I dare this guy to come and debate me at this college. I'll even pay him to come debate me. And he needs a job now."

 School forcibly transfers 'conservative' teacher
District silences union critic, claims he insulted 'gay' staff member

July 02, 2008 WorldNetDaily

A school is punishing two admired high school social studies teachers, one described as conservative, for promoting a "locker room" and "boys club" environment in their classrooms, but students are firing back and demanding the school board reconsider its disciplinary action.

Matt Nelligan and Anne Marie McManus, two former instructors at Guilderland High School in Guilderland Center, N.Y., were reassigned June 26 to Farnsworth Middle School and neither understands why, according to Times Union reports.

Nelligan, an outspoken critic of the teachers union, has been accused by school officials of calling a "gay" staff member disparaging names. However, the administration is refusing to allow him access to their culture climate report and have not provided substantiated evidence of the accusation.

The social studies teacher said he believes the district accused him of intolerance because he disagrees with union leaders' close relationships with district administrators, and they wanted to silence him.

"It's an absolute abuse of power, and it's shameful," he said. "Taxpayers should be outraged that (the district) should waste their money going after people they don't like."

McManus was not teaching at the school when the inquiry took place because she was on maternity leave. She said news of her reassignment had her in tears for several days because school officials never revealed why they were punishing her. They simply said the decision was to protect the culture of the social studies department.

"I've given my life to that place," she said. "I feel lost."

Several students have created Facebook and MySpace website pages to support the teachers. More than 615 people joined the groups as of Wednesday, and an online petition is circulating to dispute the school's disciplinary action. Hundreds of supporters also attended a school board meeting to protest the administration's treatment of the teachers. The gathering reportedly became so heated, the board left early and went into private executive session after declining to accept public comment on the matter.

Former student Liz Sherman said Nelligan, her conservative instructor, was one of the finest instructors she's ever had because he challenged her to think about why she held liberal political views, the Times Union reported. She said he never shied away from expressing his own ideas, but he was respectful and open-minded about her dissenting views as well.

"He makes you think about why that's your opinion," Sherman said. "He's not derogatory by any means."

Many students refer to themselves as liberal on the social networks and express disappointment at the school's actions toward two of their valued instructors.

While records indicate the department is dysfunctional, social studies students earned many of the highest Regents exams scores in the district, and Nelligan's performance reviews show exemplary marks. He has received top awards and been selected as an outstanding teacher twice.

Teacher Lisa Bedian has worked in the school's social studies department for six years. She said the board's report of it as a boys club is "baffling" and that she has never observed intolerant behavior from instructors.

"It's a healthy environment where everyone can agree to disagree," she said.

 University to students: 'All whites are racist'

Mandatory program "treats" politically incorrect attitudes.

October 30, 2007    By Bob Unruh    © 2007 WorldNetDaily.com A mandatory University of Delaware program requires residence hall students to acknowledge that "all whites are racist" and offers them "treatment" for any incorrect attitudes regarding class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality they might hold upon entering the school, according to a civil rights group.

"Somehow, the University of Delaware seems terrifyingly unaware that a state-sponsored institution of higher education in the United States does not have the legal right to engage in a program of systematic thought reform. The First Amendment protects the right to freedom of conscience – the right to keep our innermost thoughts free from governmental intrusion. It also protects the right to be free from compelled speech," said a letter from Samantha Harris, director of legal and public advocacy for The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education to university President Patrick Harker.

The organization cited excerpts from the university's Office of Residence Life Diversity Education Training documents, including the statement:

"A RACIST: A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. 'The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination….'"

The education program also notes that "reverse racism" is "a term created and used by white people to deny their white privilege." And "a non-racist" is called "a non-term," because, the program explains, "The term was created by whites to deny responsibility for systemic racism, to maintain an aura of innocence in the face of racial oppression, and to shift the responsibility for that oppression from whites to people of color (called 'blaming the victim')."

The "education" regarding racism is just one of the subjects that students are required to adopt as part of their University of Delaware experience, too, FIRE noted.

The "shocking program of ideological reeducation," which the school itself defines as a "treatment" for students' incorrect attitudes and beliefs, is nothing less than "Orwellian," FIRE said.

The school requires its approximately 7,000 residence hall students "to adopt highly specific university-approved views on issues ranging from politics to race, sexuality, sociology, moral philosophy and environmentalism."

"FIRE is calling for the total dismantling of the program, which is a flagrant violation of students' rights to freedom of conscience and freedom from compelled speech," the organization said.

On a foundation blog, a student noted that one residence assistant told students, "Not to scare anyone or anything, but these are MANDATORY!!" And the training program for those who indoctrinate students includes the order: "A researcher must document that the treatment/intervention was faithfully applied (ex: specific lesson plans were delivered to every student, etc.)."

Further, the school requires "a systemic change" as a result of the program, FIRE noted. As one RA told students: "Like it or not, you all are the future Leaders, and the world is Diverse, so learning to Embrace and Appreciate that diversity is ESSENTIAL."

"The University of Delaware's residence life education program is a grave intrusion into students' private beliefs," FIRE President Greg Lukianoff said. "The university has decided that it is not enough to expose its students to the values it considers important; instead, it must coerce its students into accepting those values as their own. At a public university like Delaware, this is both unconscionable and unconstitutional."

According to university materials, RAs are instructed to ask students during one-on-one sessions questions such as: "When did you discover your sexual identity?" "When were you first made aware of your race?" and "Who taught you a lesson in regard to some sort of diversity awarness? What was the lesson?"

"Students who express discomfort with this type of questioning often meet with disapproval from their RAs, who write reports on these one-on-one sessions and deliver these reports to their superiors. One student identified in a write-up as an RA's 'worst' one-on-one session was a young woman who stated that she was tired of having 'diversity shoved down her throat,'" FIRE said.

This particular student responded to the question, "When did you discover your sexual identity?" with the terse: "That is none of your damn business," FIRE said.

Requirements for students include: "Students will recognize that systemic oppression exists in our society," "Students will recognize the benefits of dismantling systems of oppression," and "Students will be able to utilize their knowledge of sustainability to change their daily habits and consumer mentality," FIRE said.

The foundation said students even are "pressured or even required" to make social statements that meet with the school's approval.

"The fact that the university views its students as patients in need of treatment for some sort of moral sickness betrays a total lack of respect not only for students' basic rights, but for students themselves," Lukianoff said. "The University of Delaware has both a legal and a moral obligation to immediately dismantle this program, and FIRE will not rest until it has."

A spokesman for the school, contacted by WND, said he was not ready to make a statement about the situation right away.

But the foundation's letter to Harker noted, "we have never encountered a more systematic assault upon the individual liberty, dignity, privacy, and autonomy of university students than this program," which "requires students to adopt highly specific university-approved views on issues."

"Such utter contempt for the autonomy and free agency of others is the hallmark of totalitarianism and has no place in any free society, let alone at a public university in the state of Delaware," the letter said.

Especially alarming, Harris told WND, is that the school defines learning specifically as "attitudinal or behavioral changes," not acquiring any sort of knowledge and ability.

Such thinking "represents a distorted idea of 'education' that one would more easily associate with a Soviet prison camp than with an American institution of higher education," FIRE said. "As another example, after an investigation showed that males demonstrated 'a higher degree of resistance to educational efforts,' the Rodney complex chose to hire 'strong male RAs.' Each such RA 'combats male residents' concepts of traditional male identity,' in order to 'ensure the delivery of the curriculum at the same level as in the female floors.' This language is disturbingly reminiscent of a pivotal scene from George Orwell's '1984,' in which the protagonist's captors tell him that 'The Party is not interested in the overt act: the thought is all we care about. We do not merely destroy our enemies, we change them.'"

No small danger, FIRE noted, is being presented to the university through such apparent constitutional violations. "Simply put, the residence life education program is a legal minefield," the group said.

One student reacted to the indoctrination with rebellion. On the FIRE blog, he wrote:

"Take the issue of homosexuality, and the rights that should or should not be associated with it. As a Christian, I believe that the Bible says homosexuality is wrong, and is a sin against God. As such, I cannot accept it as a legitimate lifestyle. While I accept homosexuals as people, I do not accept their choice as right, and subsequently I do not think that homosexual couples should be given marital rights. I accept that others do not hold the same views as me. But it is wrong that under the Residence Life curriculum and school mandated curriculum that I should made to feel guilty for my views. … It is not the school's right to try to convince me to embrace the values that Residence Life has chosen. Essentially, if I do not change my views, I will be labeled by my RA as not embracing diversity, and not accepting of certain groups, and thus my RA will try all the harder to change me. This is not the school's job, or right."

 Liberal faculty members are harassing a conservative

ALERT: Many of you may remember the story of Tim Bueler, the California high school student who was subjected to harassment and threats from both students and faculty for daring to start a Conservative Club at his local high school.

Because patriotic Americans like YOU came to Tim's aid, he not only prevailed, but high school students across the country -- after hearing about his story -- sought Tim's help in forming Conservative Clubs at their schools as well.

This point bears repeating. Because folks like you across America came to Tim's aid, he prevailed and formed a national organization called The High School Conservative Clubs of America (HSCCA) and started a nationwide movement to bring conservative ideas to high schools across the country.

Now, our friends at GrasstopsUSA.org have alerted us that a young conservative -- who has affiliated with HSCCA and started a Conservative Club at his high school -- desperately needs our help because he is being subjected to some of the same forms of ABUSE and HARASSMENT by the FACULTY at his high school for daring to start a Conservative Club.

MEET CHRIS BOWLER: Chris was not politically active in the past, but over time he came to loathe the political indoctrination that passes for education at his local high school.

To put it in Chris' own words: "I had taken Advanced Placement American Studies the year before which turned out to be largely anti-American studies, complete with teachers refusing to say the Pledge of Allegiance and spouting anti-war and anti-Bush propaganda every day."

Chris thought a Conservative Club at his High School would level the playing field, and even though he "did not go into this blind," -- as he put it -- he was not prepared for such a high level of harassment and obstruction from the faculty at Hudson High School.

Chris' first obstacle was finding a member of the faculty who was willing to act as the club's advisor.

Chris claims that he considered at least a half-dozen teachers but was turned down flat. One of the teachers finally confessed the truth to Chris in confidence, saying that he would like to help but could not "risk the backlash from the other teachers."

Can you imagine that there is such an atmosphere of oppression and hostility that teachers would decline to act as a club advisor for fear of their jobs and livelihoods?

This atmosphere of fear and intimidation sounds like something out of the old Soviet Union.

Finally the school librarian agreed to allow the club to meet in the library after school; however, she bowed out soon thereafter, due in part to the backlash she may have received from other members of the faculty.

Before the school librarian bowed out, Chris was able to schedule the first meeting for his Conservative Club and printed up flyers announcing the meeting.

After putting up the flyers, Chris found out that a member of the school administration -- under orders from the school administration -- took all the flyers down.

The school's Assistant Principal advised Chris that the flyers were taken down because they gave the web address of the HSCCA's website which contained certain objectionable materials, including:

  • A statement on HSCCA's website, saying to "take down the rainbow flag, put up the American Flag and learn the Pledge of Allegiance."
  • Statements on the HSCCA's website calling for the support of LEGAL aliens and the deportation of ILLEGAL aliens.
  • A statement on the HSCCA's website calling for the abolition of federal funding to the National Education Association (NEA).
  • Hyperlinks on the HSCCA's website to the beheading videos of Americans by Islamic terrorists.
  • A statement on the HSCCA's website supporting the 2nd Amendment.

Now that you know what Hudson High School finds to be objectionable, it may interest you to hear from Chris what Hudson High School does NOT find objectionable:

  • Hudson High School recently sponsored a "Blue Day" at the school which is a celebration and affirmation of the homosexual lifestyle.
  • Hudson High School did not object to teachers distributing copies of the film Fahrenheit 911 to students to take home. It should be noted that Fahrenheit 911 contains scenes depicting mutilated bodies in Iraq and numerous uses of the F-word -- so much for objecting to the links of beheadings on the HSCCA website.
  • Hudson High School did not object when a teacher brought an effigy doll of President Bush to school last year with simulated flames shooting out of it and solicited the class to go to an anti-war rally in Boston and watch people drag a larger, life-size one through the streets.
  • Hudson High School does not object to teachers openly advocating abortion in the classroom.

Oh... we should also mention that Hudson High School is an affiliate school of The First Amendment Center, a national initiative designed to transform how to teach and practice the rights and responsibilities of citizenship that frame civic life in our democracy.

According to The First Amendment Center website (firstamendmentschools.org), this nationwide project has four primary goals:

  • Create consensus guidelines and guiding principles for all schools interested in creating and sustaining First Amendment principles in their school.
  • Establish project schools, in every region of the nation, where First Amendment principles are understood and applied throughout the school community.
  • Encourage and develop curriculum reforms that reinvigorate and deepen teaching about the First Amendment across the curriculum.
  • Educate school leaders, teachers, school board members and attorneys, and other key stakeholders about the meaning and significance of First Amendment principles and ideals.

If things are this bad in a First Amendment School, just imagine what things are like in other high schools across the nation!

It is no secret that many of our nation's school are indoctrination centers for leftist thought. Teachers and school administrators at many schools, with the tacit cooperation of the NEA, seek to ram "leftist dogma" down the throats of our young people and opposing viewpoints are squelched.

However, we can help Chris Bowler bring conservative ideas to his school, just as we helped Tim Bueler -- but we need YOUR help.

TAKE ACTION: These teachers and administrators rely on secrecy to advance their agenda. They consider our nation's schools to be their ivory towers -- their own little fiefdoms -- where they have free reign to indoctrinate youth without the knowledge of the American public.

We can win this battle by exposing their actions to the light of day. When enough of us take a stand -- THEY BACK DOWN. Click below NOW to send a message DIRECTLY to the Principal of Hudson High School, John Stapelfeld, telling him that the harassment of Chris Bowler must cease and desist IMMEDIATELY:

NOTE: You can also CALL Principal Stapelfeld at 978-567-6250, and Superintendent Berman at 978-567-6100 ext. 114. This young man's future and the future of his schoolmates -- who may not otherwise hear a conservative thought or idea in school -- are worth at least a couple of minutes of our time. If we all band together, we can make a difference.

BE WARNED -- you will likely get a canned automatic response from Mr. Berman, telling you you've been "seriously misinformed." DON'T BE FOOLED -- they may CLAIM they support the development of political clubs, including this one, but they WON'T ANSWER any of the questions raised in this Alert regarding the liberal indoctrination going on at Hudson High School.

Be sure to send this Alert to EVERYONE you know who wants to help brave young conservatives STAND UP to repressive liberal public school faculty and administrators. Thank you!
