TIME TO “GO GALT” ON THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS

By Heather Wilhelm (with permission of the author)

On Tuesday, health a federal appeals court in Richmond, mind Va., ruled that a local school district must teach their students that up is down, right is left, 2 + 2 = 5, and that Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus serve as perfect models of refinement, good taste and aesthetic restraint.

Fine, fine, I’m paraphrasing. What the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit actually ruled was that, as The Washington Post reports, “a transgender high school student who was born as a female can sue his school board on discrimination grounds because it banned him from the boys’ bathroom.”

Further, the Post notes, the court “deferred to the U.S. Education Department’s position that transgender students should have access to the bathrooms that match their gender identities rather than being forced to use bathrooms that match their biological sex.” The Obama administration, meanwhile, “has said that requiring transgender students to use a bathroom that corresponds with their biological sex amounts to a violation of Title IX, which prohibits sex discrimination at schools that receive federal funding.”

Gavin Grimm, the student in question, is a female-to-male transgender student undergoing hormone therapy. After baffled and unhappy parents complained about Grimm using the boys’ restroom, the school offered access to a gender-neutral restroom instead. That seemed like a nice and considerate thing to do, but no dice, my friends—Grimm was “humiliated,” and we were off to the legal races. Grimm didn’t simply want peaceful bathroom access, apparently: He wanted to see his gender identity validated by other students, the school administration, and, apparently, the U.S, Constitution.

I tire of writing about bathroom wars as much as I tire of writing about Donald Trump: Deep down, I’m betting, many Americans wish both issues would simply disappear. The Virginia case’s practical impact outside of Grimm’s school district is yet to be seen, but if you’re a public school parent hesitant about self-declared “girls” with fully intact male apparatus joining your daughter in the locker room shower, you might want to take note. Odds are, to quote radio host Erick Erickson, you will be made to care.

It’s fascinating to see the “right to privacy”—trumpeted as the right to end all rights by leftists for the past three decades—fall behind a new, swiftly evolving “right”: The right to not only have your own version of reality, but to also have it forcefully validated by those around you. If you think the public schools aren’t religious, you’re kidding yourself: In its current dogmatic “you must agree” incarnation, transgenderism is a faith, not science. Unfortunately, it’s a highly intolerant faith, and it’s quickly creeping into public schools.

Sadly, at this point, there might not be much left to do but vote with your feet. The term “Go Galt,” which comes from Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged,” refers to citizens retreating from a political system that basically takes their money and otherwise does them no good. As an aside, I’m not an Ayn Rand fan: She was a grumpy misanthrope, a libertarian control freak who somehow failed to realize that you can’t really be a libertarian control freak unless you dis-invent irony, and a writer of nightmarishly awkward sex scenes.

But no matter your demographic, and beyond the current bathroom insanity, odds are the public school system isn’t doing you any favors. If you’re a poor kid in the inner city, the damage and injustice is obvious: How an absurd system segregating school quality based on wealth and ZIP code made it this far in America is beyond me. The fight for school choice, not transgender issues, as the Obama administration insists, could be the civil rights issue of our time.

Meanwhile, not content to simply teach math—or perhaps convey what socialism actually means, so that future supporters of a Bernie Sanders-esque administration might understand why everyone is suddenly so poor—the federal government’s education wing is busy trying to figure out how to mine psychological data from your kids. The Strengthening Education Through Research Act, which recently passed the Senate on a voice vote, would, among other things, do just that. Slightly spooky? Sure. Completely unnecessary? Absolutely. But hey, at least we’ll have inclusive showers in middle school locker rooms!

“If you send your kid to a private school,” Slate’s Allison Benedikt wrote in a 2013 essay-gone-viral, you are “a bad person … ruining one of our nation’s most essential institutions.”

News flash: The public school system is already a mess, it’s getting messier, and it can only improve the old-fashioned way — through competition. That means supporting politicians who champion school choice for all students; it also means private donors should consider stepping up their support for private school scholarships. In the meantime, buckle up: The silliness is sure to continue.

HOW ISLAM ERASED CHRISTIANITY FROM HISTORY
–Christianity Is Demonized (And Its History Distorted) By Its Usurping Enemies In The West, medical By A Host Of “Isms”–Including Leftism, here Moral Relativism, And Multiculturalism, and in the Middle East By Islam

By Raymond Ibrahim, with permission of the author

Christianity is being physically erased from the Middle East with scant worldwide attention. Yet even fewer are aware that Christianity’s historical role and presence in the Middle East is also being expunged from memory.

Last month, a video emerged showing Islamic State members tossing hundreds of Christian textbooks, many of them emblazoned with crosses, into a large bonfire. Per one report, ISIS was “burning Christian textbooks in an attempt to erase all traces of [Christianity]” from the ancient region of Mosul.

Christianity once thrived there for centuries before the rise of Islam. This isn’t simply about ISIS: ultimately, ISIS is merely an extreme example of Islam’s normative approach.

This was confirmed during a recent conference in Amman, Jordan, titled “Toward a Complete Strategy to Combat Extremism.” While presenting, Dr. Hena al-Kaldani, a Christian, said: “[T]here is a complete cancelation of Arab Christian history in the pre-Islamic era,” “many historical mistakes,” and “unjustifiable historic leaps in our Jordanian curriculum.”

By way of example, he said: “Tenth-grade textbooks omit any mention of any Christian or church history in the region.” Textbooks make no mention of Jerusalem’s Christian sites. Wherever Christianity is mentioned, omissions and mischaracterizations proliferate. Christianity is primarily mentioned as a Western (that is, “foreign”) source of colonization, said al-Kaldani.

Of course, Christian minorities throughout the Middle East—not just in Jordan—have long maintained that the history taught in public classrooms habitually suppresses the region’s Christian heritage while magnifying (including by lying about) Islam.

“It sounds absurd, but Muslims more or less know nothing about Christians, even though they make up a large part of the population and are in fact the original Egyptians,” said Kamal Mougheeth, a retired teacher in Egypt: “Egypt was Christian for six or seven centuries [before the Muslim invasion around 640]. The sad thing is that for many years the history books skipped from Cleopatra to the Muslim conquest of Egypt. The Christian era was gone. Disappeared. An enormous black whole.”[ia]

This agrees perfectly with what I recall my parents, Christians from Egypt, telling me of their classroom experiences from more than half a century ago: there was virtually no mention of Hellenism, Christianity, or the Coptic Church—one thousand years of Egypt’s pre-Islamic history. History began with the pharaohs before jumping to the seventh century when Arabian Muslims “opened” Egypt to Islam. (Wherever Muslims conquer non-Muslim territories, Islamic hagiography euphemistically refers to it as an “opening,” fath, never a “conquest.”)

Sharara Yousif Zara, an influential politician involved in the Iraqi Ministry of Education agrees: “It’s the same situation in Iraq. There’s almost nothing about us [Christians] in our history books, and what there is, is totally wrong. There’s nothing about us being here before Islam. The only Christians mentioned are from the West. Many Iraqis believe we moved here. From the West. That we are guests in this country.”[ii]

Zara might be surprised to learn that similar ignorance and historical revisionism predominates in the West. Although Christians are in fact the most indigenous inhabitants of most of the Arab world, I am often asked, by educated people, why Christians “choose” to go and live in the Middle East among Muslims, if the latter treat them badly.

At any rate, the Mideast’s pseudo historical approach to Christianity has for generations successfully indoctrinated Muslim students to suspect and hate Christianity, which is regularly seen as a non-organic parasitic remnant left by Western colonialists (though as mentioned, Christianity precedes Islam in the region by some six centuries).

This also explains one of Islam’s bitterest ironies: a great many of today’s Middle East Christians are being persecuted by Muslims—including of the ISIS variety—whose own ancestors were persecuted Christians who converted to Islam to end their suffering. In other words, Muslim descendants of persecuted Christians are today slaughtering their Christian cousins. Christians are seen as “foreign traitors” in part because many Muslims do not know of their own Christian ancestry.

Due to such entrenched revisionism, Muslim “scholars” are able to disseminate highly dubious and ahistorical theses, as seen in Dr. Fadel Soliman’s 2011 book, “Copts: Muslims Before Muhammad”.

It claims that, at the time of the Muslim conquest of Egypt, the vast majority of Egyptians were not, as Muslim and Western history has long taught, Christians, but rather prototypical Muslims, ormuwahidin, who were being oppressed by European Christians: hence, the Islamic invasion of Egypt was really about “liberating” fellow Muslims.

Needless to say, no historian has ever suggested that Muslims invaded Egypt to liberate “proto-Muslims.” Rather, the Muslim chroniclers who wrote our primary sources on Islam, candidly and refreshingly present the “openings” as they were—conquests, replete with massacres, enslavement, and displacement of Christians and the destruction of thousands of churches.

In the end, of course, the Muslim world’s historical approach to Christianity should be familiar. After all, doesn’t the West engage in the same chicanery?

In both instances, Christianity is demonized and its history distorted by its usurping enemies: in the West, by a host of “isms”—including leftism, moral relativism, and multiculturalism; and in the Middle East, by Islam.
