To some on the left, opposition to their program can only stem from stupidity January 22, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, disaster, Domestic Church, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, persecution, rank stupidity, Revolution, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unbelievable BS.
Have you ever noticed, that those who tend to ascribe, en masse, gross ignorance or stupidity to others, oftentimes are not nearly so brilliant as they conceive themselves to be? Have you perhaps observed an increasing manifestation of this phenomenon among our “friends” on the left?
Both thoughts ran through my mind as yet another hidden camera expose of a strong proponent of Common Core revealed the ideology behind this destructive standards, and the increasing impossibility of reconciliation with such vast ideological stridency. I quote a lot below from this Kimberly Koerber character [my comments]:
Kim Koerber (KK): People that are not educated, Fox TV viewers think that Common Core comes from the educated liberal groups and that’s why they are against it. [Whether they are educated or not – that is debatable – this woman confirms in spade the liberal bias inherent in Common Core] They don’t know anything about it. They think it’s liberal so they’re against it. That’s what I think it is. It’s a knee jerk reaction. My mother, oh my God, she’s a Fox person. If I could remove Fox from my television set, I would…[Behold the open mind of the “liberal”]
I did a big presentation yesterday for AP US History and the AP US History agenda was set, until Texas got upset about it and they wanted to have their founders – they wanted founders in it. And it’s like – come on. The dead white guys did not create this country. It was a whole bunch of different kinds of people. And yes there were women, and yes there were people of color, and yes…you need to talk about them too. But they want to talk about those dead white guys. [What can one even say? Sure loads of people contributed to the founding of this nation – for good or ill – but a small cadre of white males played by far the dominant role. Get over it. No matter how much you try to go back and rewrite that history, you cannot change that fact]
And that’s the problem. You’re getting pushback, because there’s a bunch of Republican people, conservatives that don’t like being told what to do by people they don’t agree with. [But this lady, she’s totally open-minded to hearing contradictory concerns. Wait, no, no she’s not, not at all] For example, in AP U.S. History a long time ago, Texas wanted to have U.S. History books, right? Pearson made them. And it talked about the Wild West and how there were prostitutes, right. And Texas was really upset. They didn’t want to mention…I’m like…You’re too young to… Did you watch Gun Smoke? It was a TV show, and you had Marshall Dillon and Ms. Kitty was his friend. She owned a bar and she was a prostitute. They never mentioned it but that’s what she was. It’s like who was Ms. Kitty? Who were these people who went out and serviced these men that went out in the world? That was real. The Wild West was not a nice place. And our kids need to know that that’s what it was like, you know. [That is strictly her opinion. Which, by virtue of her influential position, she is trying to shove down the throats of millions who disagree. And note her own most strident opposition to being forced to even listen to, let alone required to “learn” or regurgitate, conservative beliefs as this interview goes on. But how does she reveal her own ignorance? She takes a TV show as some kind of indicator of what the Old West was really like. Please. In point of fact, in the vast majority of the frontier west, murder, prostitution, etc., were almost unknown. It was only in a few relatively lawless boom towns like Tombstone and Dodge City where prostitution was rampant and gunfights occurred. Most communities had, very early on, quite severe laws against prostitution and murder rates were much, much lower than today, even though – or because – almost everyone was armed]
Project Veritas Journalist (PV): But these people in Texas are really upset that the Constitution is not being covered.
KK: It is being covered, but not the way they…cause they’re idiots and they don’t know what’s in it. [Generally one ascribes stupidity to a belief set one is both ignorant of and which one cannot comprehend. This term is used repeatedly, over a dozen times, in the ~10 minute interview]
PV: Is it covered as much as it would have been?
KK: In 12th grade government it certainly is, and in 5th grade it is. Yes.
PV: “It’s not a necessity for the kids.”
KK: You should know a little bit about it, you shouldn’t have to memorize the thing. [She’s just contradicted herself. Sure, Common Core teaches the Constitution, but now she admits, not very much. And yet it’s conservatives who are too ignorant to understand the Constitution? Here’s another explanation: this woman and her ideological ilk find the Constitution inconvenient, and wish to do away with it]
Republicans want to get in there and talk about stuff and change things about school stuff because they want to, they want to influence what is being taught. Common core doesn’t put up with that. [But democrats NEVER try to influence education and curricula. And only geniuses constantly say “stuff” in their conversation]
PV: Yeah. And, so it’s not really being… A lot of these complaints about it are not so much about the content yeah…
KK: They’re misunderstanding; they are people that don’t really know what they are talking about.
I…I can’t stand it. If they talk to me one more time about…climate change not being real, I’m just gonna scream. [Translation: I cannot refute their contradictions of my deeply held religious beliefs, and it shakes me to the core]
PV: I am really glad I’m here in California, whatever religious affiliation you want to take is fine, but in Texas they want to push the Christianity.
KK: Because they think it’s the only one.
PV: They do, and I see that.
KK: That’s why it’s so offensive to have these prayers in the school board.
PV: Christianity is totally out of the common core?
KK: Yes it is. Totally. It’s not a core concept at all. [Duly noted]
PV: But then there is a mention of other religions like Islam.
KK: Yeah well you have to because …[Because islam is exotic and foreign, and we’re so far above those “others” they could never pose a real threat to us, unlike those disgusting Christians]
PV: So how did Islam get worked in?
KK: Islam…they said you have to talk about Islam, you have to talk about Judaism and you have to talk about Christianity and they wanted to make it big about Christianity; no it’s like, everybody needs to know about everything else…
PV: Is that one of the complaints, that common core does have a liberal bias?
KK: Yes, they feel like we’d be educating their kids to the world which they don’t want to do that. They want their kids to only know this… It’s like birth control. They don’t want their kids to know about it, yet Chlamydia is huge in Texas. [This woman seems to have issues with our fair state. What does chlamydia have to do with birth control?] So it’s like, you know…In the schools that have kids that, because the kids don’t learn about anything about what they’re doing and they’re messing around and they get in trouble because they didn’t get educated. [This woman is like a walking file of leftist cliches] So, I think the progressive bias is the more educated you are, the better you are, and the conservative bias is the less they know the better they are going to be. Yeah. [Convenient, that. Can you say moral preening?]
PV: What is it that they don’t agree with?
KK: They don’t agree with Islam, so they don’t want their kids to be taught it. They don’t agree with birth control so they don’t want their kids to talk about it. They don’t agree with math because they don’t understand it. It’s not the same math they did in high school. So they don’t want their kids to know about it. [So no one ever has an actual valid criticism, they’re just stupid lying liars who hate hate hate. Even though numerous sources have indicated that the math presentations in Common Core are ludicrously convoluted and counterproductive. Please, Ms. Koerber, let’s put your knowledge of math against mine, or my wife’s or any of a dozen of my radical right friends. Know much Vector Calculus? Partial Differential Equations? Linear Algebra?]
It’s conservative push back, that, they are afraid. So these conservative, these conservative voters are afraid of everything. [And if people like you are really behind Common Core, I’d say we have very good reason to be]
PV: I’m just wondering why Common Core specifically…before Common Core kids were learning about math and science.
KK: Because it’s the government telling me what to do.
People who say they want to teach the Constitution, only want to teach the part of the Constitution that they like.
PV: Second Amendment?
KK: But yet they don’t want to teach all of it. Damn the Second Amendment. I don’t think personal handguns need to be on anyone except the government, the police. What is the purpose of having a gun?
The separation of church and state they don’t understand. [Oh the fun I could have with that, but I’ll pass]
They don’t like that. They don’t like equal rights between all groups. The voter suppression that is going on in the south is just unbelievably awful. [Please, tell us more of these sacred truths you’ve received from the holy writ of Huffington Post]
People who are not educated are easy flim flam. [They certainly are. Progressive does not equal smart, in spite of what the TV has told you for 30 years] And that they react by fear instead of by knowledge. [Like the fear you have of Texans, conservatives, the Constitution, guns, etc., etc? Who is demonstrating the kind of prejudice and bigotry motivated by the basest kind of fear in this long diatribe? Who is demonstrating gross intellectual insecurity here?]
The Project Veritas journalist asks Koerber about the profits for textbook publishers with the Common Core reform.
KK: Anytime anybody changes something in a textbook its profitable for the textbook companies. So the textbooks have to change and the school district has to adopt the new ones, that’s profitable.
PV: Say that again.
KK: Anytime a change happens that has to be put in a textbook suddenly the school district has to adopt new books.
Now this Koerber character works at National Geographic…..as if you needed any more knowledge of where that publication is coming from. And so far there is no known disciplinary action taken against her, in spite of the PR disaster this is for that increasingly inconsequential publication.
These are your self-anointed betters, folks. Bow down to your moral and intellectual superiors. These people really do exist. Not sure how many there are – far too many, to be sure. Goodness me, it is amazing what rot the culture has inculcated into the minds of so many, and what damage it is doing. I don’t think, barring a miracle, reconciliation is possible across such a vast ideological divide.
But I’m sure Francis will find some way to bridge it. He’s a wonderworker, after all.
Thanks for confirming for me why my kids will never, ever set foot in one of your slave-making leftist indoctrination factories.
