Biden Wants to Make Public Education Even More Worthless

Happy Friday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Garlic is my superpower.


One of these Fridays I’m going to find something fun and frivolous to write about so we can all head into the weekend on a lighter note.

Today is not that Friday.

It’s not that we can’t cover what’s going on in the world and still have a fun weekend. Read this, then ignore the news until the next Briefing on Monday morning. That’s a sound plan every week. Trust me, I wanted to be a doctor when I was young.

We haven’t talked about the rapidly deteriorating state of public education in this fine country for some time now.

One thing more of the public has learned in this past year is something that a lot of us have known for a very long time: teachers’ unions don’t give a damn about school kids. I am not saying that all public teachers are bad and don’t care, but the union higher-ups are pure evil. The rank-and-file union teachers don’t get a pass, however, because they enable and don’t call out the evil ones.

Public school teachers have made it plain that they’re not interested in teaching kids. If they have to be in a classroom with them they want to be indoctrinating them. That’s really what public education in America has been about for decades. When I wrote “the Death of Public Education” in the headline I didn’t mean that public schools were going away, I meant that education as we once knew it is going to disappear.

Now they’ve got a puppet in the Oval Office who is literally in bed with a union teacher.

The liberal public school brainwash mill is about to get much, much worse.


Kimberly Hermann wrote a post for us yesterday about the latest move in this process:

The Biden Department of Education has quietly proposed a new rule prioritizing the use of federal tax dollars for K-12 schools that replace traditional education with “culturally responsive teaching and learning” – more commonly referred to as critical race theory. This is the most significant move by the federal government to redefine the nature of state-funded public schools in U.S. history.

Although the current effort to push public schools receiving federal funding to adopt a detailed indoctrination agenda may feel new and overwhelming for parents, the truth is that the Biden attempt is simply the last phase in a decades-long effort to control local schools and press the progressive agenda on our children. With the power of taxpayer-funded purse strings, the federal government sends a message to public schools that if they want financial aid they must “teach” critical race theory and prioritize its ideologically anti-American, anti-traditional agenda over traditional education.

The mask is off (COVID-era pun intended), the pretense that they want to enrich the minds of young Americans with real knowledge has been abandoned. Biden and Mrs. Dr. Jill want to start minting mindless automatons who are convinced that America is awful.

No, really:

At its core, critical race theory is the false idea that the United States is a fundamentally racist country and that all of our nation’s institutions – the law, culture, business, economy, education – are designed to maintain white supremacy. Politicians and pundits market critical race theory as inclusive teaching, one that promotes understanding and tolerance. When the truth is exposed, they try to repackage it in a series of euphemisms, including anti-racism, equity, or culturally responsive teaching. But the “scholars,” like Ibram X. Kendi and the 1619 Project behind the related anti-racist rhetoric proposed in the rule – the true believers – admit the truth.


For years, those of us who were railing on and on about indoctrination in public education were called paranoid. What I’ve learned over the years is that the only real way to know that I’m 100% correct about an issue is if a leftist tells me I’m merely being paranoid. As Kimberly wrote, this has been a very long-term plan. Leftists are brilliant at playing the long game. By the time they escalate and reveal what they’re up to most of the agenda is in place.

Before it was known last year how long the lockdowns and school closures would go on, the mainstream media began running hit pieces warning about the dangers of homeschooling, lest it become more popular during plague time. They were terrified that the grist for the mills would be lost.

The reluctance of union teachers to go back to work wasn’t about not wanting to get back to indoctrinating the kids again, it was just pure leftist greed. They saw an opportunity to shake down the taxpayers to fund even more of the leftist agenda, most of it having nothing to do with education. They pretended that their lives were in mortal peril to facilitate the shakedown. They knew they weren’t going to get COVID from the kids, it was all theater.

Critical race theory is a key component in the leftists’ effort to turn the United States into a Third-World communist cesspool. The people behind it won’t suffer, they’ll be the ruling class that gets all the goodies, which is found in every commie society. They know that.

The idiots following them don’t.

Have a great weekend.
