We have been watching as the education system in our country has failed generation after generation. It is not just that the schools have failed to teach facts, but that there even is a such a thing as facts.
Over and over, children have been taught unconnected facts devoid of their historical and cultural context. This began with the separation of the Pilgrims and the Theology that motivated their trek to this country. This followed by ripping the Founders from their Christian culture out of which was born the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
They have heard the praise of the bloodthirsty and godless French Revolution. Now, this lack of truth in education has reached critical mass. It seems that this will be the destruction of our nation and culture.
Proof of this can be seen in the way people are now handling facts. They think that killing is killing and so if some killing is good then all killing is good. They cannot detect the moral difference between self-defense and murder. We see this in the way that Collin Kaepernick defended his wearing the image of Fidel Castro on a shirt.
Things grew testy between Kaepernick and a particular media member of Cuban descent, in regards to Kaepernick’s past wearing of a Fidel Castro t-shirt. According to the Palm Beach Post, “When pressed about the shirt, Kaepernick first pointed out that Malcolm X also was pictured. Kaepernick said he supports Malcolm X and his willingness to be “open-minded” before forming his own views of the world. Part of that open-mindedness, he said, was meeting with the Cuban leader.”
In typical fashion for today, Collin defends his actions by defying them. He deals with a different issue because he feels that issue justifies his action. He was not supporting Castro or his actions, but he was supporting Malcolm X.
And when the reporter called Collin on specifics, he again justified his actions by condemning another, namely America.
When the reporter challenged Kaepernick on Castro’s history of breaking up families, Kaepernick responded, “We do break up families here. That’s what mass incarceration is. That was the foundation of slavery, so our country has been based on that as well as the genocide of Native Americans.”
So Castro’s destroying of the family in Cuba for socio/economic reasons, is the same as sending a criminal to jail. As the reporter remarked, unbelievable. And this is why we as a culture may be in our last years.
You simply cannot fix stupid.
Don’t believe me, listen for yourself.
