American Culture is Being Slowly Erased and Replaced

With my breaking the story of the Soquel High School suspensions, I got my very first Memeorandum page, a blogging milestone.  That was nice.  Lots of local folks weighing in on the Soquel post, some saying the kids deserved their suspensions for past "sins" (like wearing American flag t shirts to school on Cinco de Mayo).

Apparently, someone has been putting Nazi symbol graffiti around the school, and this group of white students is suspected of being the culprits, and suspicion is good enough to want to suspend them.   They couldn't prove the graffiti guilt, so they had to prove something easier, i.e. that the students were wearing white t shirts.

It seems to me that the program and goal of many universities and high schools in America is to erase America, replacing it with something else.  In general, they do this by: 
(1) Supporting and celebrating the culture, traditions, language and history of "the other," that is, nonwhite minorities, while claiming that doing the same for the white majority is offensive and racist;
(2) Instilling in the minds of the white students that they and their ancestors are evil oppressors, and that by the very color of their skin they are suspect and untrustworthy, deserving of shame and repentance;
(3) Justifying anti-American and anti-white attitudes in minorities by giving undue credence to their grievances and prejudices, and by reinforcing their status as "oppressed victims" at the hands of Americans or white people;
(4) Instilling in the minds of all students that it is a crime for any white people to be proud of their race or their heritage, causing knee-jerk reactions against any alleged "thought crimes," e.g. that celebrating Cinco de Mayo may not be appropriate or desirable for a public school activity in America.  (Hispanic kids should be assimilated into American culture and become Americans, instead of encouraged to remain separate and apart from, and hostile to, America.)

As for the white kids who understandably feel alienated by the leftist culture that surrounds them on campus, they should find more effective means of resistance.  Shouting "white power" or adopting Nazi symbols (if that is the case) is absolutely not the way.  Also, being white is something many patriots have in common, but no one should be excluded from a pro-American resistance movement based simply on their race.  Attitudes and beliefs are more important.  We need all the friends we can get.

What is an effective way for alienated pro-American kids to resist leftist indoctrination on campus?  That is a question worthy of some serious thought.  I don't currently have the answer.  Suggestions?

Listen to what an 18 year old (young for her age) has to say on her Facebook 30 Day Challenge thingy and weep...

"I hate being white :[ (I'm disappointed in what we did in the past!)"

This is the kind of crap that is drummed into them at school.

Adrienne, yes that is a good example of the brainwashing kids are getting in high school these days.

Some kids instinctively know that they are being culturally victimized and are starting to fight back at the leftist system...like the kids in Soquel. We need to find ways to help them direct their energies into an effective resistance.

I completely agree.

Of course, the sociological problem is that the pendulum swings -- and hard.

Those who are disenfranchised or who perceive disenfranchisement "act out" in frustration.

We see this phenomenon of acting out time and time again throughout history.

To prevent extremes (much of the time, but not all), the disenfranchised group has to see a pathway to return to the society to which they are reacting extremely.

In my view, nobody belonging to any racial group should be made to feel guilty for having been born into that group. Any group, racial or otherwise, shouldn't be passing down blame to the next generation. Also in my view, there's nothing wrong with racial pride, which I define differently from "racial supremacism," a divisive ideology.

This erasing of American culture (I agree that it's happening) will lead to more fracturing of our society. What should be binding us together: American principles and American culture.

Excellent post, Stogie. Very thought provoking.

AOW, excellent comment, I agree with everything you said. I do believe that the fracturing of our society into a group of squabbling ethnicities is exactly what the left desires. Divide and conquer.

We thought that by enrolling our girls in private Catholic school we'd avoid much of the nonsense that is taught at public shools. For the most part, we were right, but there were times when they'd come home with some questionable view points learned at class or from other students.

From the time they were very little, we made a point of discussing our day at dinner. Mr. Cube and I sometimes, not always, found ourselves countering what was learned by giving facts in opposition or providing context that wasn't given in class.

Over the years, this process gave our girls the ability to entertain opposing view points, examine facts on both sides, and arrive at their own conclusions on the matter.

We now have two intelligent young women who know how to think on their own.

The education of our children shouldn't be left soley to teachers and the media. Parents need to fortify the curricula with the principles that made the US an exceptional country.

Parents should also lobby to stop school boards from passing anti-American and anti-Christian policy.

Much of this is fostered by what I call GOWPs:

-Guilty
-Overeducated
-White
-People

In Fornicalia, whites are a dying breed anyway. It won't be much longer before Caucasoids are banished to the back of the Obama-mandated public transportation, to the rampant cheers and tumult of all non-Caucasoids.

There is no fixing Fornicalia. You stay here, you take your chances. There are two kinds of people: parasites and hosts. The hosts, for obvious reasons, are fleeing Fornicalia.

Good for them. Because, except for the beautiful weather, mountains and coasts, there ain't much to keep a good, earning Host HERE any more.

I stumbled onto your blog and read this post and I have to disagree somewhat. I do not pretend to know the school system or the demographics of where you live, but I am a high school social studies teacher in West Virginia.

The teachers within our department (myself included) strive to present history as it was. We don't demonize any one race nor do we sugarcoat history. We also want our students to think for themselves.

I also encourage my students to discuss topics with their parents. It generates more thought and promotes having parents actively involved with their children's education. It also allows kids a way to connect with parents -- to share an interest.
