how to fail.
One almost hopes that our public schools do NOT reopen after the coronavirus pandemic, given the destructive brainwashing therein.
Which is why Deb Kerr has a capital idea. If elected as the statewide school marm on April 6, she would yank the WI Department of Public Instruction out of the progressive playground of Madison and scatter it to the four corners. Places like Bonduel, Patch Grove, Ogdenburg, Moose Junction. Places with woodsheds.
Problem is our schools of education churn out thousands of super-Woke versions of Jennifer Cheatham. It’s not just Harvard, where the guilty White woman landed, or the University of Wisconsin-Madison but every education department from Superior to Parkside. Talk about your super spreaders!
UPDATE AND CORRECTION: We have removed the photo of a Verona middle school teacher. Verona schools got back to us and said her T-shirt was supposed to represent “For the Culture.” The first line of the T-shirt (which was partially obscured on the right side) read: “F [ Black power fist ] R” not “F [ fist ] K.”
A teachable moment
Today’s Hero in the Spotlight (a new and short-lived feature of the Werkes) is U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman, R-WI. This true intellectual is being “called out” by identity politicians for opposing legislation that disincentivizes marriage.
“I know the strength that Black Lives Matter had in this last election. I know it’s a group that doesn’t like the old-fashioned family.”
Rep. Grothman is saying the same thing that U.S. Sen. Patrick Moynihan, a Democrat from New York, said 55 years ago. The Moynihan Report warned that the hoped-for gains from the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would not materialize unless the disintegration of the Black family were not reversed. In the vernacular of 1965:
“The Negro family in the urban ghettos is crumbling. … So long as this situation persists, the cycle of poverty and disadvantage will continue to repeat itself.”
So did Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:
“The group consisting of mother, father and child is the main educational agency of mankind.”
Not the WI DPI?
Always the most courageous person in any room, Grothman is correct about the official Black Lives Matter organization. Until it was recently scrubbed, the organization’s website declared:
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement …”
Glenn T. Stanton in The Federalist confirms:
BLM, as an organization, seeks to dismantle the very institution that mountains of published academic research has consistently demonstrated as most likely to strengthen and empower Black Americans and their children: the traditional, nuclear family.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Destroying the family is even more destructive than BLM’s other major goal of abolishing police.
