The Academy’s War on Western Civilization
Of all the venues where the unleashed hysteria of revolutionary Progressivism manifests itself, it is most rampant in our educational establishment, on our college campuses and in our schools. It is there in those hallowed halls and in the hothouse public school classrooms that the Progressivist infection really begins in earnest. It is there where it becomes contagious and the pathological indoctrination of our children in a rancid ideology diametrically hostile to nearly all of Western tradition and beliefs. What occurs in those centers where our children are educated is happening in our society at large….critically dangerous, perhaps even fatal, to our culture.
Our educational system has become the seedbed—the Typhoid Mary, if you will—for the frenzied “cancel culture” we see around us and for the concerted and increasingly fanatical attempt to destroy and erase the two millennia of Western Christian civilization.
Far too many Republicans and so-called “conservatives” believe that—somehow—they can coexist or even collaborate with this lunacy. They cannot. It will devour them, just as it is devouring what remains of our heritage.
There are literally hundreds of publicized examples of this educational madness, and they are just the ones that earn particular notice. But for every one news account there are dozens, even hundreds which don’t make it into the press. For every example of progressivist “woke” lunacy there are numerous others in classrooms across the nation, or proclaimed by professorial or teachers’ organizations.
I have selected a representative sampling of these as examples, and I will list them below—they are just the tip of the iceberg, just an impressionistic view of what is occurring in our academic system today. But they offer a very definite idea of the perilous and utterly disastrous state of our education system. Either we—our leaders—take strong and radical action, and initiate comprehensive reform, or there is no future for this nation…or for Western civilization.

“Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, is offering a course entitled ‘How to Overthrow the State,’ which includes encouraging students to engage in ‘producing a Manifesto, and ‘writing a persuasive essay on rewriting history and confronting memory’….”
And what about the University of Rhode Island? You see, “woke” students (and the university administrators) there just don’t feel comfortable or safe around monuments and murals honoring soldiers who fought in World War II—they were “too white”:
University to remove World War II murals because they show too many white people
MATT LAMB – ASSISTANT EDITOR •SEPTEMBER 8, 2020
“Students didn’t ‘feel comfortable’ sitting near the murals, administrators said….
“The University of Rhode Island recently announced plans to remove two murals depicting World War II veterans because it lacks ‘diversity and a sensitivity to today’s complex and painful problems,’ according to the university. Kathy Collins,
