RUSH: Shelby in Atlanta, great to have you. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Hello, Rush. How are you?
RUSH: It’s a female. I’m sorry. It didn’t say that.
CALLER: Yes, it is.
RUSH: I apologize.
CALLER: It’s quite all right, sir. Yes, sir. I heard your show yesterday, and you were talking about the indoctrination of our youth in the public education system. I’m going to school to become a teacher, and I can tell you, from the first class that I took in education, we are being taught as teachers that we are racists. We are inherently racist and, in order for us to be effective teachers, we have to acknowledge our inner racism, whether we know it or not.
RUSH: This is part of what you had to do while in college learning to be a teacher?
CALLER: Yes, sir, it is.
RUSH: So you heard the story yesterday. There’s this Wisconsin school district where a bunch of parents found out that the teachers are teaching basically that the white population in this country has been racist and bigoted. It’s actually part of the curriculum. So that’s what you heard, and you’re now calling to add on and say that before you could get out of there you had to acknowledge your innate racism. Even if you didn’t know it, you had to acknowledge it, so you could be an effective teacher. You had to learn how it was that you yourself were racist?
CALLER: Exactly. Exactly. Yes. The saddest thing is that what good is this doing to our prospective teachers out there? If we’re automatically told that we are racists, we’re gonna go, or some of us, not the intelligent ones, but some people are gonna go into their classroom and they are gonna look at their children and they’re automatically gonna put them in little categories, and they’re gonna say, “Okay, it’s really important that I make sure that these white kids understand that even if they don’t have a racist little bone in their body, they are racist.” And you have to cater the educational experience to putting that racism out there in front of the children.
RUSH: All right. So answer me this. When this was happening to you, did you ask yourself, “Why are they doing this?”
CALLER: Of course I did. And then, you know, you go on to have class discussions, and it’s all this wonderful socialist views, where if we admit that we’re racist, then we can take the next step and say, “Everybody deserves to have that fair share. Redistribution is okay.” It’s a cycle.
RUSH: That’s exactly right.
CALLER: It’s horrible.
RUSH: You were being groomed to ultimately spread the message that there’s been a bunch of unfairness and racism and bigotry and the government must be big and powerful to fix all of this, and you’re being taught to teach kids that they need to support this as well. And you’re gonna get hold of these kids and save these white kids before they become racist. You’re gonna save them. You’re gonna help them see this country the way it really is so that they then grow up thinking that we need to have a government that runs everybody’s lives so that everybody is treated fairly.
CALLER: Oh, but, you know, they don’t realize that they’re actually putting an enemy behind the lines. Because teachers have to step forward, and we have to say that enough is enough. Our children do not need to be taught from day one that they are any better because of the color of their skin or they’re any worse.
RUSH: I know, but the way most of us look at this, this curriculum you had to undergo is succeeding, that more and more teachers get into the classroom indeed believing this and they’re all teaching it. The multicultural curriculum is all over the public school system now.
CALLER: It is. And it’s a scary thing. And it’s seen not only in the public school system, but with the Occupy movement. You saw the teachers unions in New York that were advancing the socialist cause of redistribution. And even in some of the private school arenas, they do have curriculum that’s catered towards multiculturalism.
RUSH: I know, this is the indoctrination, folks, that everybody knows takes place, and it’s been going on for quite a while. Anyway, I’m glad you got through, Shelby, and I’m glad that you made it here today on Open Line Friday. Thanks much.
We gotta take a quick break, folks, and we’re back before you know it.
