With the election to blame, The News-Gazette is bursting with letters to the editor. Here's one from the overflow that should spark a little discussion. I trust no one objects if I add it to the forum. There hasn't been much discussion of Ayers. -- JRF
Stalin referred to them as useful idiots, people who know not what they do, ultimately suffering equally. Today we know them as progressives. A mindset brainwashed to believe America is a racist, oppressive and unjust society and it’s their duty to change the framework of the government, revolution.
They do not recognize America’s exceptionalism. Bill Ayers fomented this revolutionary mindset within education. Bill Ayers shares more than initials with Benedict Arnold, he should be investigated by the FBI for his calculated and deliberate subversive actions
The decision to deny Ayers Emeritus status was just. Ayers is a committed communist, an atheist who prays on young impressionable minds and weak minds. He produced useful idiots via the student body and subverted other idiots, ideological professors. In fact he has his subversive finger prints through out public education and DC.
The leftist faculty senate’s staunch effort to negate the Academy on Capitalism and Limited Government is the latest confirmation of this entrenched progressive mindset.
The last thing these useful idiots in academia want is for America’s exceptionalism to be taught in the classroom, that would negate their efforts invested in rewriting the narrative, or should I say instilling the social justice curriculum. The thing speaks for itself, right, President Hogan? As parents, as freedom loving Americans we have the largest stake in things and there is only one logical response here, it’s transparently obvious.
Likewise, progress has nothing to do with changing the foundation of the Republic; it’s idiotic, historically deadly.
