Social Issues & Action

Bravo to Kurt and other teachers to take this national stance of resistance to the corrupt and corrosive NEA. God bless their efforts. Please spread this around.

*******************************************

To Teacher Unions of the United States,

This letter is to inform you that you are on notice from concerned teachers across the United States to stop using member dues to finance political actions of any kind for either party, Republican or Democrat. This includes local and state teacher unions, as well as the National Education Association. Unless serious changes are made at every level, you will lose a significant part of your membership by August 2021.

We believe public teacher unions are not fostering a true diversity of teacher opinions, beliefs, and values. One result of this is that citizens in our community tend to look at all teachers as one ideological brand. This is not so, and part of the purpose of this letter is to make that clear to all citizens.

We also believe people should be informed and alarmed that the current trend in many school districts across the country, working in concert with our powerful teacher unions, is stifling dissenting voices. We see this in equity committees that are currently setting up policy structures in American public schools. The name “equity” has been carefully chosen to present an illusion of equality and fairness, but they are just the opposite.

Rather they promote social control and imposing a one-sided political ideology. This ideology is manipulating and bullying educators, and your children, to turn against traditional values like love of country and flag, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, law enforcement, and even the value of the traditional nuclear family. These are all under serious attack, and we can no longer, in good conscience, be part of this assault.

All citizens need to know that teacher in-service training for improving academics is rapidly being replaced by courses dealing with “group identities,” “diversity,” and “equity.” This is in large part due to the pressure our unions are putting on school districts across America. And we would add, this is the same pressure currently keeping students isolated at home instead of at school, regardless of spiking youth depression and suicide rates.

We encourage every American to go to nea.org or their state teacher union website and see how political our unions are. Just scroll down the menu and look at the headings. Then contact these unions and let them hear your voice.

As teachers, we embrace the idea of the uniqueness of every individual no matter what color, creed, or gender, and we reject the union notion of grouping people. This trend is exclusive rather than inclusive. Please help us push back on a madness that will ruin our schools and eventually our country. Whether a teacher or a citizen, please promote this letter and cause.

Sincerely, Concerned Public School Teachers of America

I’m sure you’ve seen those yard signs that proudly declare “In this house WE BELIEVE that Black lives matter, women’s rights are human rights, etc etc”

Al Kresta just produced a video responding to the silliness. It has never been done better. Please share widely.

My Resolve as our World Spins out of Control

January 23, 2021

After commenting a bit on our dismal situation in the world, a friend wrote to me this morning saying, “Please keep doing what have been doing for many years to come!” I responded, When we got married 44 years ago I told my good wife we had already lost our country, it was just a matter […]

by Dave Durand September 1, 2020  Published in Legatus Magazine “What does it mean when a CEO says, “we support Black Lives Matter?” On the surface, it appears the company affirms the dignity and equality of Black people.

Who Are the Poor I’m Supposed to Care For?

September 6, 2020

As we leave our rented apartment in Rome and walk towards St. Peter’s Square I notice a ragged, filthy woman sitting on a piece of cardboard with a baby laying lethargically in her arms. She looks up with mournful eyes and pathetically mumbles something as she reaches out hoping I’ll put coins in her hand. […]

The Catholic Church: the First Abolitionist, Church Never Endorsed Slavery

July 28, 2020

Crisis Magazine has come out with a good and insightful article debunking the idea that the Catholic Church endorsed and promoted slavery. The modern anti-Christian, anti-history narrative takes it for granted that the Church was either a promoter of slavery, or at best complicit or it turned a blind eye. This article by Paul Kengor […]

Isn’t this homily a breath of fresh air?

June 24, 2020

Fearless, politically-incorrect and calling out those who need to be called out including the USCCB, the coronavirus hysteria, the Cardinal of Washington DC, and more. He actually discusses politics – how dare he? He also challenges the media, LGBTQ, the attack against masculinity, the genuine role of men and fathers and reactions to sin in the world. I wonder […]

Watching the Rioting?

June 1, 2020

Watching the rioting and looting? This is what happens when you take God out of society and the fathers out to families. Yes, there are some injustices in our country, but this mayhem is the result of a lack of God and strong fathers.
