This is the guy who should be running for President in 2016!
A Speech Every American High School Principal Should Give.
By Dennis Prager.
To the students and faculty of our high school:
I am your new principal, and honored to be so.
There is no greater calling than to teach young people.
I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school. I am making these changes because I am convinced that most of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have worked against you, against your teachers and against our country.
First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity.
I could not care less if your racial makeup is black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could not care less if your origins are African, Latin American, Asian or European, or if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships. The only identity I care about, the only one this school will recognize, is your individual identity — your character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school will care about is American.
This is an American public school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans. If you wish to affirm an ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity, race and non-American nationality-based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America, one of its three central values – E pluribus Unum, “from many, one.” And this school will be guided by America’s values. This includes all after-school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political correctness.
Your clubs will be based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other physically defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism — an unhealthy preoccupation with the self — while the purpose of education is to get you to think beyond yourself. So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being interested in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that means that little outside of yourself really interests you.
Second, I am uninterested in whether English is your native language. My only interest in terms of language is that you leave this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The English language has united America’s citizens for over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school. It is one of the indispensable reasons this country of immigrants has always come to be one country. And if you leave this school without excellent English language skills, I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the American job market. We will learn other languages here — it is deplorable that most Americans only speak English — if you want classes taught in your native language rather than in English, this is not your school.
Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor, everything in this school will reflect learning’s elevated status. This means, among other things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in our society dress more formally for Hollywood events than for church or school. These people have their priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal dress code at this school.
Fourth, no obscene language will be tolerated anywhere on this school’s property — whether in class, in the hallways or at athletic events. If you can’t speak without using the f -word, you can’t speak. By obscene language I mean the words banned by the Federal Communications Commission, plus epithets such as “Nigger,” even when used by one black student to address another black, or “bitch,” even when addressed by a girl to a girlfriend. It is my intent that by the time you leave this school, you will be among the few your age to instinctively distinguish between the elevated and the degraded, the holy and the obscene.
Fifth, we will end all self-esteem programs. In this school, self-esteem will be attained in only one way — the way people attained it until decided otherwise a generation ago — by earning it. One immediate consequence is that there will be ONE valedictorian, not eight.
Sixth, and last, I am reorienting the school toward academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will be devoted to scaring you about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about sexual harassment or global warming. No more semesters will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as only or primarily a health issue… There will be no more attempts to convince you that you are a victim because you are not white, or not male, or not heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any one of you graduates this school and does not consider him or herself inordinately fortunate — to be alive and to be an American.
Now, please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of our country. As many of you do not know the words, your teachers will hand them out to you.
My good friend Bob McGraw shared this with me. I hope you will share this with every American you know. This was how I was raised and joining the US Navy at 17 prepared me to be a man. It is a shame that our President and Congress do not have a clue about leadership, ethics, truth, honesty or freedoms anymore. If anything is not politically important it deserves no attention in our government.
Why do we have so many Black racists in powerful leadership positions in America today? Why do they preach, promote, infer and insist on violence as the way to live? Why do they feel that anyone owes them anything other than the right to be free? They have had political control of the country for nearly five years and have divided the people worse than we experienced in the 1860’s. They appear to want a piece of flesh rather than a piece of bread. Why?
President Obama had a chance to unite Americans and improve our world image with his leadership. Instead he has alienated our people and is destroying our leadership position in world events. Why?
When the Black people unite at greater than 90 percent to admire, blindly follow and worship the current Black leaders in American we have more than an education difference. Watching leaders like Reverends Wright, Jackson and Sharpton spew racial hate, Congresspersons Maxine Waters, John Conyers, Sheila Jackson Lee, Elijah Cummings and Charles Rangel, to name a few, scream racists messages every time they open their mouth is sickening. Why?
We have some great Black American leaders like Dr. Ben Carson, Allen West, Senator Tim Scott, Governor Mia Love, WalterWilliams and Dr. Thomas Sewell and many more that should be hero’s to their people. They know how to prosper without violent dialog. They are Americans instead of antagonists but understand we are strong when we unite instead of divide the people. They are not only ignored, they are outcasts within their own race. Why?
Watching Obama use people like Eric Holder to openly ignore our laws when Blacks commit hate crimes then use race as a tool to prosecute Hispanics and Whites when they defend themselves is wrong. Why?
The recent George Zimmerman trial should be the warning signal that the Blacks hate the Hispanics as much as their leaders hate the Whites. They will continue this offensive to divide Americans until the people unite and stop this crap. It is time for the Hispanic people act like Americans, unite behind their new leaders and actually unite us all again.
I am deeply impressed with real leaders that have emerged like Senators Rubio and Cruz. Sadly the power base enjoyed by the Hispanic people is still mostly held by Democrats that are as out of touch with our Republic form of government as the Blacks they helped gain their current power. If they choose to ignore the chance to step up and support these new leaders, they will deserve to be second class humans trapped in a foreign country that they currently live in. I doubt that they will take advantage of this opportunity. Why?
Let me review some facts beyond the increases in numbers the Hispanics have made that reveal some gains they have made.
Take a look at the 113th Congress currently so admired by some eleven percent of the people. The Blacks have forty-four elected officials represented by one Senator, Tim Scott, a Republican and forty-three members of the House that are 100% Democrats. The Hispanics have 38 elected officials represented by three Senators, Republicans Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz and one Democrat, Robert Menendez along with thirty-four members in the House. The major difference is that five of the House members are Republicans. The voters somewhere are waking up and realizing that “Involuntary Slavery” I recently defined is not a way of life for any American.
My mission with this article is a question to all Hispanic people, citizens or not, to think hard how you can improve your life and the opportunities of your children if you want to? Step number one is speak English and become an American. I spent a lot of my life working with, training and consulting with businesses in Mexico. I had a timeshare for over 25 years in Puerto Vallarta and I found the people more than deserving to be free from government oppression and control. Please help us remove the fear of growing government oppression and control from our Constitutional freedoms. The direction President Obama is shoving down our throats will be far worse than life in Mexico or Central America. Our current leaders are hell-bent on creating more government regulatory interference in our lives than anywhere in the Western Hemisphere.
As a boy I witnessed far too many young Americans die defending my freedom during WW II.
I served in the US Navy and had many classmates wounded and killed in Korea.
I watched as my brother served and many good friends died in Vietnam.
No American ever served in the military or gave their life to protect the Mexican Flag.
Recently here in Texas , a student raised a Mexican flag on a school flag pole; another student took it down.
Guess who was punished? The student who took it down.
School children in California were sent home this year on Cinco de Mayo because they wore T-shirts with the American flag printed on them.
Have you had enough? Read the following, then do something.
Every American needs to stand up for America. We’ve bent over to appease the America-haters long enough…
I’m taking a stand, will you?
I’m proudly standing up because the hundreds of thousands who lost legs or died fighting in wars for this country, can’t stand up.
Shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message…
Let me make this perfectly clear!
THIS IS MY COUNTRY!
Because I make this statement “DOES NOT” mean I’m against immigration!
I WELCOME ALL FREEDOM LOVING PEOPLE, IF.
They just follow the rules and the laws to come here legally.
1. Get a sponsor!
2. Pay for a place to live!
3. Get a job!
4. Live by the Rules!
5. Pay YOUR Taxes!
6. Learn to speak English.
7. Don’t demand that we hand over our lifetime savings to provide you with welfare.
IF YOU DISAGREE LIKE THE MORONS IN CONGRESS YOU’RE ALSO PART OF THE PROBLEM! WE DID NOT INVITE OR DRAG THESE PEOPLE OR THEIR CHILDREN HERE.
For those who have children or grand children in K-12 schools, let me encourage you to find out if your if this described advantage exist where you live. It is obvious to me that the Texas Legislature uses politics to provide educational variables to pacify themselves and the appointed and elected Boards to favor certain school districts. Nationally the US Department of Education uses 90% of their billions to provide social justice for the minorities and aliens. Just read the itemized 92 page budget if you doubt my words. If the states and the federal governments would admit that a local program like the one described below would find the right path for aligning children’s capability with a mixture of academics and vocational programs necessary to prepare them for their place in society. We may all be created equally but we all do not fit into society equally. It is time for the people to stop this waste of money and demand change. CB
“First let me apologize to Dr. Lana Comeaux, whose name I misspelled in the last article. I have lived in Sabine county, very close to Louisiana, for nearly 20 years. When Dr. Pearson suggested I meet Ms. Como, my age drove me to associate the name to Perry when I took notes.”
I had the pleasure to visit with Dr. Comeaux on Monday April 11th at the Sabine Area Career Center in Pineland, Texas. I had no conception of what a great advantage was available to the citizens of Sabine and San Augustine counties.
The center has several specialized classrooms to conduct classes and a welding facility with modern equipment and seven individually vented weld stations. The computer classroom is well equipped and is available for students use in searching the internet for assignments. Classrooms are available to permit students to participate and interact by video with some specialty classes being conducted at Angelina College in Lufkin.
The Career Center also has a large meeting room that is available for community meetings and special events. Currently this room is utilized for programs like Dance, Taekwondo, Photography, Flower Arranging and Computer classes. Another program available is support meetings for parents with autistic children.
In addition to the Angelina campus, some of the classes are conducted at Hemphill ISD and Jasper ISD where science labs or other specialty facilities exist. I have another meeting scheduled this April 21st with Dr. Pearson and Dr. Comeaux to view the Hemphill laboratories and other specialized facilities.
Some of the two year college credit courses are; English, World History, US History, Texas History, Sociology, Algebra, Chemistry, Biology etc. The Career Center also provides Community Service Programs that include; Phlebotomy, Certified Nurse Asst., Medical Asst., GED Preparation, and Welding. Future planning includes courses for EMT, LVN, Police and Fire careers, Automotive and A/C & Repair.
All of the programs are available to students at Hemphill, West Sabine, Brookland, Broadus and San Augustine school districts.
Citizens of the area are fortunate to have this facility. It does require the five school districts to work closely with Dr. Comeaux. This includes a student’s needs assessment and scheduling classes to permit the students to be able to take the Angelina programs. Each of the five school districts provide either the superintendent or a principal to serve on the on the Board of Directors.
The program is totally funded by grants, donations and private foundations. Currently the Beaumont and TLL Foundations provide significant funding for the Center. No state or local taxes are appropriated for the center. This is an unusual advantage for both the students and parents of Sabine and San Augustine counties.
A student can take up to twenty classes which can result in roughly 60 credit hours if they take full advantage of the program. Students are eligible after their sophomore year to start in that summer and can take 2 courses each semester. There are two summer sessions in addition to the regular fall and spring school semesters. This means that if a student is academically driven, they can start their college or university education as a junior. For those families with funding limitations, a high school student can obtain an Associate’s Degree in the summer after they graduate from high school.
Every parent should be aware of this advantage. The economic distress and the mystery of what the politicians in Austin and Washington D.C. will dream up next, demands that we prepare today’s students who will have to pay for the debacle.
