The “Un-Constitutional” State of Education in America And How It Affects You

Most Americans think that the purpose of education is to help children and young adults learn the basic important things in life and to learn how to be productive members of society. To do that, it makes sense that students would learn basic concepts about how to do math that will allow them to balance their checkbook or to learn about elections so that they can vote and make their voices heard. You would even think that students would be able to learn about our Constitution.

But you’d be wrong.

Students at a public college, Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, Michigan, were arrested for doing such horrible things like passing out copies of the Constitution to other students. Jack Burns writes,

The incident occurred at Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, Michigan and involved members of the Young Americans for Liberty who were arrested September 20th, 2015 and charged with trespassing. Brandon Withers and Michelle Gregoire were arrested and spent nearly 7 hours in jail for their unapproved distribution of the U.S. Constitution and for allegedly attempting to recruit others to their club.

The ‘offenses’ resulted in demands the students remove themselves from campus property. The students refused to leave and were arrested by campus police and charged with trespassing.

So, students, who were not interrupting any class, were arrested for exercising their right to free speech and their right to educate other students about the foundations of our government. And they were doing all of this peacefully.

Stop and realize that this kind of bias against people who love liberty is something that your tax dollars are paying for. The school’s policy about “solicitation” allows them to regulate free speech if it doesn’t “support the mission of Kellogg Community College.” Now, if one of the main purposes of the college isn’t to educate students on a basic understanding of the Constitution, what is the purpose?

To make it worse, students have complained that university authorities allow politically liberal organizations to speak out and “solicit” without prior notification or permission, so this appears to be a clear case of bias. It would seem that the school doesn’t want to teach kids how to think, only how to blindly obey. New York State Teacher of the Year, John Taylor Gatto, would agree that is the case. He said,

Schools were designed by Horace Mann and Barnard Sears and Harper of the University of Chicago and Thorndyke of Columbia Teachers College and some other men to be instruments of the scientific management of a mass population. Schools are intended to produce through the application of formulae, formulaic human beings whose behavior can be predicted and controlled.

It appears that “educators” at Kellogg Community College, like many “educators” at schools from elementary to institutions of “higher learning,” are actively engaging in setting up a police state of the kind in which the people are too blind to see what is going on, so they never escape.

My advice to you? If you can, homeschool your children. If that isn’t an option for you, look for other ways to make sure that they are truly educated, that they learn how to look at more than one side of an issue, that they learn how to think for themselves. If they don’t, then they will be doomed to blindly follow the rules given them by administrators of the police state.

    Personally, I think it is tragic that Kellogg Community College would have students ARRESTED for passing out copies of the United States Constitution, something that EVERY UNITED STATES CITIZEN SHOULD KNOW ABOUT!!!! Our GRAMMAR SCHOOLS, HIGH SCHOOLS, AND COLLEGES ARE FAILING TO TEACH ABOUT THE RICH HISTORY OF THE FOUNDING OF OUR GREAT NATION, and that’s a DAMN SHAME!!!! The Administration of the Kellogg Community College are the ones who should be ARRESTED FOR DENYING THOSE STUDENTS THEIR RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH, covered under THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO THE U.S. CONSTITUTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Whose tax money supports the school? Fed or state? They may be in fear of teaching about freedom because it does not fit in with fed mandates, either directly or indirectly. Such as core curriculum which makes the Dept of Education function like highway funding. That is, either teach what is sent down by the muslim infested WH or lose funding. The swamp that needs draining is huge. Very, very huge,

    • bruceapilot

      Amen.

Such as Core curriculum. Makes education funding too much like highway funding. Either teach what is sent down or lose fed funding. Also called madrass schools in islam. Teaching govt “catechism”.

    The Communists have been infiltrating our educational system for decades. The Dumb A$$ oc RATS help them along. The Socialist and Communist Parties in the US fund the Dumb A$$ oc RATS political campaigns.

    • GeneP54

      Republicans haven’t helped.

      • kbmiller

        I agree. It’s like whistling past the graveyard. We now need to be more aware.

    • jesse

      The dumborat party, where psychosis reigns supreme, has become the party of Marx, Engels, Islam, illegals, anarchists, atheists and luciferians of all stripes!

    • Mitchina

      This was the entire agenda of the socialist and communist parties way back in the late 30’s and 40’s. McCarthy was spot on about this scum and he knew how easy they slide on their bellies into high positions of authority in every facet of American; Corporations (as we are seeing their true colors every day… NIKE! Just stop it), education, government, healthcare, environmental agencies… the list and depth of this disease is far and wide. Think about it. Half the freaking country was voting for that POS criminal Clinton. That’s a lot of people – how ever do we get rid of them all without having a civil war and killing them off? It would be easy and quick since many don’t believe in gun ownership. lol I am joking about that… or maybe it’s just wishful thinking… but as it took 50 years for them to take over, it will take us 50 years of tenacious efforts by ALL of us to replace them or re-program them. Yes, folks – it’s that bad; they are that evil and we are in that much trouble. DKevitt that posted above is truly an optimist.. or stoned.

      • kbmiller

        I hope it doesn’t take 50 yrs.

    The NWO is working over time and is now resorting to enlisting the local jack-boots to do their public, dirty-work. It doesn’t help that the liberal/progressive educators at this “so called institution of higher learning” is promoting ignorance of the Constitution and suppressing these patriots rights to free speech. But by controlling facts and information they control debate on campus along with the direction any debate takes. A page from the Nazi Germany play book.

  • Zeke

    We need to yank all public funding from these schools ASAP.

    There is no longer any such entity as a “Institute of Higher Education” in this country. Just as there no longer exists a UNITED States of America. We are only months away from an all out war between good and evil in this country the same as it has already happened to every country in the world. Very soon the fools in this country (liberals, homos, aclu, unions, dopers and the liars of Washington, D.C) are going to run headlong into a very pissed off and well oiled machine called Conservatives. The Moslems will do nothing but stand back and wait and then they will simply step in and take over a destroyed mass of ruin and decay EXACTLY like they said they were going to do it. They will not have to use the first weapon. AMERICA DIED in the year 2008 when the useless piece of shit named Obama stepped into the halls of the capital. He did absolutely NOTHING positive for this country, but he achieved his goal of ruining every thing that was good and decent about America. To show you how bad it is: I am retired military and EVERY soldier I talk too cannot wait to get their time in and get the hell out. The good soldiers of this country are fed up with the filth and decadence of not only the military but also the government that has made it what it is now. Thank Obama and your mthrfkn sheep that follow you.

    • DKevitt

      The Kellogg CC episode reeks! But “Phil62” do not make the mistake of clumping all “libs”, etc. as your enemies. Neither should you assume that all “conservatives” are your allies or that they are lock step with you in every facet of your belief system and world view. The worst thing any of us can do is let what is happening divide us. We all want the same thing…self governance. Freedom. If we create enmity between ourselves, we miss the opportunity to join together to develop a truly wonderful system of governance, economic well being and more. It is human nature and the need for a tension between coexisting principles. Without the dynamism of that tension, nothing good happens and if or when it does, it does not last.. .

      • Mitchina

        You cannot “develop” anything with Satan. The left has mostly become self indulgent ideologues filled with evil. There is only so much one can do to change evil – it’s much easier just getting rid of it.

    • Awaitingtherapture

      Thank you for your service. Stand ready to help us conservatives fight for our country. It’s going to get bloody.

  • HopeChgHA

    With schools like this (and the OCC in CA, look that up if you are not aware!) “they” don’t even have to set up a Communist regime, they already are accomplishing indoctrination!

  • Mitchina

    I’m a single mom that works and I cannot afford a private school…. but my son has known the prison style techniques they’ve implemented ever since grade school. He has a natural resistance to public education and if he could he would test out of H.S. all together. Unfortunately he is not Hawkings brilliant, but he is super smart. The cookie cutter method of teaching has failed the vast majority of children and the liberals like it that way. Keep them stupid, grade on a curve and by all means force integration and “diversity” until you have no identify at all except victim-hood. Well, unless you’re white – then you are privileged… at the same sickly economic level as everyone else…. and yes, that makes sense to many guilty white liberals.

  • rwhawk

    This is cultural Marxism at its best. Police state, speech control, collectivism, intolerance for differing worldviews. The whole Democrat party reeks of this Marxism and many RINOs enjoy their company. Other aspects of cultural Marxism is the whacky environmentalism, social justice, equity of outcome, multicultural diversity, normalization of LGBT behaviors, etc.

  • 1ForWisdom

    The arrestors should be arrested for violating the first amendment rights of the ones handing out the truthful literature and for being biased in who they allow on campus.

  • bruceapilot

    I smell a multi-million dollar lawsuit coming. No laws were broken, arrest is not called for, for giving away copies of the founding documents of this nation. Gifts are not illegal, and ideas are supposed to be the stuff of “Universities.” Are we going to have to have another Civil War to make that point?

  • Barbeque Jim

    I’m shocked to even read such a evil plan by evil people that think they have the power over god to do such a thing to all our children.OMG.what is wrong with theses people. What popes up in my mind is when satin was cast down from heaven it is his people that he influence that do such a thing to destroy the grace of love and freedom Of the world. This control thing has gone on for to long and we can only hope that trump can turn it around. God bless you all.Jim
