How Liberals Are Poisoning The Minds Of Young Americans

John Hawkins,

“We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.”—C.S. Lewis

“An empty head is not really empty; it is stuffed with rubbish. Hence the difficulty of forcing anything into an empty head.”Eric Hoffer

Our kids are no longer taught about patriotism, morality, honor or self-reliance. They’re not taught economics. They’re not taught about the Constitution. The boys aren’t taught to be men and the girls aren’t taught to be women. In fact, if you find kids who know anything about these subjects, it is almost certainly because their parents bent over backwards to jam that knowledge into their heads.

Our society used to inculcate these values in schools, church and via our entertainment. It was a different and, in many ways, better world. Liberals try to portray everything that happened in America’s past as evil and backward, but when you look at statistics like these from Charles Murray’s outstanding book, Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010, try and tell me that this country hasn’t gone downhill in the values we’re teaching our kids.

“To get a sense of how different attitudes were in the 1960s, perhaps this will do it. These ever-married women were asked, ‘In your opinion, do you think it is all right for a woman to have sexual relations before marriage with a man she knows she is going to marry?’ …Eighty-six percent said no.”

“Starting in 1970, marriage took a nosedive that lasted for nearly twenty years. Among all whites, ages 30-49, only 13 percent were not living with spouses as of 1970, Twenty years later, that proportion had more than doubled, to 27 percent — a change in a core social institution that has few precedents for magnitude and speed.”

As the late, great Andrew Breitbart said, “Politics is downstream from culture.” Is it a shocker that millennials lean to the Left when they constantly have liberalism shoved down their throats by their schools, their favorite musicians, and Hollywood? Is it a big surprise that 51% of millennials do not support capitalism when we allow honest-to-goodness communists to teach them in college and liberals are publicly extolling the virtues of socialist hellholes like Cuba and Venezuela?

The Greatest Generation grew up storming Normandy and fighting the Japanese across the Pacific. Meanwhile, many millennials of the same age feel “unsafe” if someone they disagree with speaks at an event they don’t have to attend on their campus.

Oh, and morality? Kids today grow up being told that morality is wrong because morality demands judgment. As Hugh Hewitt said, “My analysis is that most faith based systems depend upon an absolute moral order. The declaration of things as absolutely evil or absolutely good, as sin or virtue, puts liberalism into a horrible position because it’s founded on no judgment on anything. As a result, any faith that is seriously practiced or understood is a challenge to the politics that depend on constituencies that would rather not be told that their choices are bad and their lives are not virtuous.”

Additionally, as my friend Evan Sayet noted, everything liberals teach to kids is backward.

Justice demands that the good and hard-working be rewarded and the evil and the lazy be punished (if only by the withholding of the rewards of doing the right things). Modern Liberalism demands that the good and hardworking be punished as the recipients of an unfair advantage and the evil and the lazy be rewarded, their acts of evil and their failure all the proof the Modern Liberal needs that somehow they have been victimized by forces out of their control.

In the sixties, American kids were dreaming of building rocket ships and going to the moon. Today, they’re trying to figure out what gender they are and which bathroom they should be using. It’s not an improvement.

This is where snowflakes come from. It’s where the victimhood mentality comes from. It’s why so many kids think they’re entitled to have whatever they want based on what we can only assume is the sheer gratitude the rest of us should have for their very existence.

As someone who has millennials working for him, I can tell you that they’re not a doomed generation. They’re not all snowflakes. They can be just as successful as past generations of Americans.

However, to make that happen, we conservatives can’t just keep going with the flow because it’s easier. We have to teach young Americans about the values that have made this the most successful, prosperous nation on earth.

To start with, we need to begin challenging the victim mentality liberals push on millennials. As I write in my brand new book, “101 things All Young Adults Should Know, “Don’t ever feel sorry for yourself. Don’t ever seek pity from other people. Don’t ever play the victim, even if you are one. Why? It’s a mentality. If you wait for someone else to solve your problems, you’re usually in for a long wait. Even if you do get help, you probably won’t like the help you get.” Hammer that message home to your kids. Also, buy a copy of my book. In fact, buy 30 and give them to all your kids’ friends.

Let’s cut off the funding of state run colleges which discriminate against conservatives. Furthermore, if liberal kids keep tearing up Berkeley every time conservatives want to speak, then maybe Trump should send in the National Guard to keep order and protect their First Amendment rights.

We’ve also got to teach our kids about capitalism, Christianity, and love of country, because that is what this nation was built on. Snowflakes may melt when the going gets tough, but kids who are taught good, conservative values will stand tall even when it’s not easy.

    I appreciate my time spent with men and women in heavy industry. As a Republican, unions have always been a concern to me. As a union member, they remained so. But there’s another aspect to union life, and that’s not ratting on union brothers and sisters. Though not absolute, it’s strong, and I remember exchanging hundreds of glances over the years at fellow union members when I realized that some aspect of some incident wasn’t being related to company supervisors; shall we say; 100% in accordance with the truth. But I’d watch the glances exchanged between company supervisors for the same reasons, they were concealing; or attempting to; some aspect of the incident. In both cases this was the honor part, allegiance to your own kind. These men and women were self reliant as well, to a degree that many would be surprised about. Most of the jobs were done without active, in the field, supervision.

    Though mechanisms were in place for the usual harassment stuff trendy in the outside world, exercising those reporting mechanisms (depending on the offense) is likely to get you ostracized. So you had to learn to live with unpleasant circumstances. In fact, if something bothered you, and you let someone know it bothered you, that person and others are likely to use it against you.

    Here was a popular gag at work. A cup on the hardhat, applied by grease on the wide end of a styrofoam cup and placed on someone’s hardhat without their awareness while they’re wearing it. It’s an unwritten law that you can’t tell the person it’s there. Notice how hard everyone’s laughing, not so much at the victim’s antics, but because especially in the second video, he’s shaking his head hard but the cup holds on.

    Lessons in humility. I’ve been cupped and have cupped others. The adage “If you can’t take it, don’t dish it out” doesn’t apply, because they do it to you either way.

    The company had no interest in listening to whining employees, they had a major facility to keep pieced together, an old facility. I’ve seen employees that couldn’t take it, they leave, not many, but a few couldn’t adjust, but the facility didn’t adjust to them.
    While I’m writing this, this movie is on in the background, I’ve seen it before, but it’s kind of fitting here. A well adjusted town, with secrets, that has a city slicker arrive and cause disharmony. The real significance is towards the end. Exchanged glances, interesting movie.

    Lastly, this is an excellent graduation commencement speech given by David Foster Wallace and put to relevant scenes. The gist is that we need to understand that as individuals we are not the center of the universe, and we have choices to make in our relationship to the world that will either make life possible or unbearable. Problem is, today’s youth think they’ll they’re entitled to force their views upon others, life won’t have it, but they haven’t learned that yet.

    And the author addresses the following points that are also being discussed in the comment sections of Conservative media, it’s time we see actions taken by the govt to curb the violence, many of us are feeling betrayed. The antifa movement is terrorist is nature and should be pursued under those laws.

    Let’s cut off the funding of state run colleges which discriminate against conservatives. Furthermore, if liberal kids keep tearing up Berkeley every time conservatives want to speak, then maybe Trump should send in the National Guard to keep order and protect their First Amendment rights.
