`Think Like a Nazi` ~ Educations Decline

This comes via Gateway Pundit and Poor Richard’s News, and is yet another example of how government involvement deteriorates teaching students well:

Think like a Nazi, the assignment required students. Argue why Jews are evil.

Students in some Albany High School English classes were asked this week as part of a persuasive writing assignment to make an abhorrent argument: “You must argue that Jews are evil, and use solid rationale from government propaganda to convince me of your loyalty to the Third Reich!”

Students were asked to watch and read Nazi propaganda, then pretend their teacher was a Nazi government official who needed to be convinced of their loyalty. In five paragraphs, they were required to prove that Jews were the source of Germany’s problems.

The exercise was intended to challenge students to formulate a persuasive argument and was given to three classes, Albany Superintendent Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard said. She said the assignment should have been worded differently.

“I would apologize to our families,” she said. “I don’t believe there was malice or intent to cause any insensitivities to our families of Jewish faith.”

One-third of the students refused to complete the assignment, she said.

Vanden Wyngaard said the exercise reflects the type of writing expected of students under the new Common Core curriculum, the tough new academic standards that require more sophisticated writing. Such assignments attempt to connect English with history and social studies.

 This is worse than the “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure” assignment!

But this thinking is becoming more ingrained in society… that is, support for radical views against Israel, support for the Palestinians, and the painting of Jews as “less than” civilized society. Here is one such example from Columbia University:

                                                            They Support the Occupy Movement!

                                                            The Nazi Party came out in support of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement mainly because they know it is anti-Semitic, as well as the New Black Panther Party. Many media “acolytes” support the movement (for instance: the NYT, MSNBC hosts [Ratigan, Sharpton, etc], and the like)… even Obama once again came out in support of the movement, again. Some say this is an odd combination, I beg to differ (link in graphic above). Celebrities are also taking sides with this radicalized movement in supporting cop-killers and occupy’ers.

                                                            Even the “anarchists” involved do not know what the “F” they are talking about! For instance, Prager commented on this mix-up a while back:

                                                            The Emergency Committee for Israel released a video plea today asking democrats to speak out against the anti-Semitism at their national Occupy Wall Street protests.
                                                            This video speaks volumes.

                                                            Hillary Clinton Admires Nazi Eugencist-Rewrites History On Top Of It

                                                            (Just watch your volume on second half of video after the fair use code)

                                                            If anyone doubts Maragret Sanger’s past, you should read my Margaret Sanger and the Racist History of Planned Parenthood (Black Genocide) post. I would love to know where I am wrong if you think I am. Now, to splice what Hillary Clinton said above. She made mention that Thomas Jefferson was an “unrepentant slave holder.” Firstly, she reflects criticism well. Bravo… a “great” politician she is (as Yoda would say). However, there are two points that will be made herein. The first, Thomas Jefferson was repentant, as we will see. Two, Margaret Sanger was a eugenics Nazi until the very end. As my linked paper above clearly shows, she was a racist monster of the Left that has no equal on the Right. Let’s scour my first premise with some historical insights given Thomas G. West:

                                                            Did the Founders Believe Blacks Are “Created Equal”?

                                                            The first two of the three views just mentioned are the easiest to refute. The evidence against them is overwhelming.

                                                            All the Founders, even those who defended slavery, knew well that blacks are human beings. Hardly anyone claimed that slavery is right in principle. Each of the leading Founders acknowledged its wrongness.

                                                            Let us begin with the words of Harvard historian Samuel Eliot Morison, from his Oxford History of the American People, which has sold many thousands of copies since it was first published in 1965. He asked, “Did Jefferson think of blacks when he wrote, ‘all men are created equal’? His subsequent career indicates that he did not; that in his view blacks were not `men.'” Morison’s formulation is evasive. He does not actually say that Jefferson believed blacks were not men. Morison was a competent historian. He knew very well that at the very moment Jefferson was writing the Declaration, he was not only “thinking of blacks” but writing that blacks were men. This passage appeared in Jefferson’s first draft:

                                                            He [the king of Britain] has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating and carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere…. Determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought and sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce.

                                                            Morison’s procedure is typical of many critics of the founding. By intentionally omitting a crucial piece of evidence (Jefferson said that blacks were men), they cause the reader to imagine something that the historian hints at but never actually says (Jefferson believed blacks were not men).

                                                            Morison says that Jefferson’s “subsequent career indicates that he did not” believe slaves to be human beings. Let us see. In 1779, Jefferson proposed a law that would have provided for gradual emancipation inVirginia. In Congress in 1784 he proposed a law, which came within one vote of adoption, that would have banned slavery from the entire Western territory of the United States. In 1787 he published his widely read Notes on the State of Virginia, which contained in Query 18 the most eloquent denunciation of slavery written by anyone in the founding era. In 1807 President Jefferson publicly supported the abolition of the slave trade, urging Congress to “withdraw the citizens of the United States from all further participation in those violations of human rights which have been so long continued on the unoffending inhabitants of Africa.” Throughout his life, Jefferson expressed his opposition to slavery in numerous private letters. In light of this “subsequent career,” one can only wonder what depths of hostility (to Jefferson in particular or the Founders in general) would lead a capable historian like Samuel Eliot Morison to leave his readers with such a false impression about the author of the Declaration of Independence.

                                                            [….]

                                                            George Washington: “There is not a man living who wishes more sincerely than I do, to see a plan adopted for the abolition of it.”

                                                            John Adams: “Every measure of prudence, therefore, ought to be assumed for the eventual total extirpation of slavery from the United States. . . . I have, through my whole life, held the practice of slavery in . . . abhorrence.”

                                                            Benjamin Franklin: “Slavery is . . . an atrocious debasement of human nature.”

                                                            Alexander Hamilton: “The laws of certain states . . . give an ownership in the service of Negroes as personal property. . . . But being men, by the laws of God and nature, they were capable of acquiring liberty—and when the captor in war . . . thought fit to give them liberty, the gift was not only valid, but irrevocable.”

                                                            James Madison: “We have seen the mere distinction of color made in the most enlightened period of time, a ground of the most oppressive dominion ever exercised by man over man.”

                                                            As you can clearly see, Mrs. Clinton takes a revisionist view of history and applies it to her reality. This is more of a Howard Zinn view of class warfare and the West being the “big-bad bogyman.” Hillary is shown for what she is, and this will hurt her standing with the black community as more and more black people find out about the real history they hjave not been taught. Like this young lady taking a stand:

                                                            We can see as well that Obama supports this agenda that Hillary praised in her acceptance of the Planned Parenthood award:

                                                            James Harris rightly documents some of this history in his VLOG:
