Do You Think This Is True?

This sounds a little hard to believe to me. What do you think?

I don't know if this is real or not, but it appears that to be real, unfortunately. I would hate to think that its real, but there are some Mexicans who do think like that. Where did you find it?

The letter itself was real, the teacher who wrote it confirmed it.

Whether the events that took place in the letter actually occured I don't know but will tell you that I have heard of similar situations in some of our local schools (sans the "you stole our land and we're going to take it back" -- not all the students involved are illegal aliens) to the point where one high school has armed police there, everyday. My sister, who teaches in Philly, can tell similar stories.

Midnight Rider,

Than things are really bad.

midnight rider said...

Well, I don't know that the problem is limited to illegals, nor thgt they are the main cause or just one of the symptoms.

Here, anyway, it's a mix of black & latino some whites. Regular fights & gang fights in front of the high school, the (too) occassional shooting/shootout there. Metal detectors and armed police to enter the school.

And besides the "prestige" of gang membership, what drives it?


It's a tough town. And we're by no emans the only one with these kind of problems.

In Fairfax City, Virginia, several children (Hispanic immigrants, legal or otherwise) frequently refuse to take the Pledge of Allegiance and refuse to speak English. I know this because two of my cousins are in that particular school system.

Furthermore, one of the schools in Fairfax City refused to allow a Ww2 veteran to come to class on Veterans Day and lead the class in the Pledge of Allegiance.

The story about the WWII vet being refused, that I believe.

However, that is the Administrations fault.

The story about children in the classroom saying, "You stole our land." I believe that too.

However, this teacher's letter makes it sound as if almost every single student is like this.

THAT IS HARD FOR ME TO BELIEVE, and I have never heard testimony of the like before.

Even in a school district like the one MR describes being in Philadelphia, still, 70% graduate. That means 70% go to school every day, intending to try, to do their homework, to study for the tests, and to care.

And yes, even some of them might hate America, but they are starting with some assumptions that are common to the cause of America and to learning;

that authority is worth obeying
that learning is a good thing
that succeeding is a good thing
that history, math, reading, are important as things in themselves

Kids like that are not going to behave the way the teacher described.

I think the teacher may be exaggerating and exaggerating to the extreme.

That is bad for our cause.

Look, I will be the first one to tell you, there are MECHA clubs on every college campus across the United States. MECHA promotes the kind of hatred described in this video. Given that that kind of hatred is accepted on college campuses I would imagine that ii is widely disseminated by our teachers as they have been educated on those college campuses.

And, there is part of me which even wishes this story were true. I do, indeed, wish the battle lines were drawn this clearly. I wish that everyone who hated America were this clear and articulate about it. I wish they would tell us, rather than skulking away and living lives of chaotic rebellion. I wish they would be forced to confront us, articulate their ideas, hash them out in the marketplace of ideas, and find their mettle, but it just does not work that way.

And, it does not work for our side for people like this teacher to lie, to exaggerate stories to the extreme.

All this does is feed the idiotic myth that every time people like us complain about the ideology of groups like MECHA and La Raza that our words are the words of paranoic racistis.

This teacher and this State Senator are doing us all a disservice, UNLESS THEY CAN PROVE THE VERACITY OF WHAT THIS TEACHER CLAIMS TO BE THE TRUTH.

And, I doubt very much that she can.

Always On Watch said...

Well, I can't imagine that EVERY student is like that, either.

But I don't know the class dynamic, either.

Pastorius said...

Class dynamic might explain such a veer towards absolute chaos.

cjk said...

First try didn't get through.

It does seem over the top, however:
This is a substitute teacher.
We don't know what the regular teacher is like.

If they have an hispanic, La Raza adoring teacher they might act thus toward some racist, white, thieving, gringo trying to force allegiance to a symbol of base oppression such as a United Statesian flag. It is therefore very possible that this is 100% true.

The first ameoba to ooze its way ashore was jewish.

I own everything and and everyone stole it.

I am taking it back and anyone who resists will be in trouble.

BTW, when the Aztecs took it from the bastards whom they butchered who took it from the Mayans, who took it from the Hurrians who escaped from the assyrians and colonized mestizoamerica from the east ... did they get a receipt?


I think I have a new motto , ".303 and TVP"
