THE FOOLS IN OUR SCHOOLS
The Chicago Teachers Union sent out a mass email encouraging comrades to march on Washington, DC “for Trayvon, for jobs, for schools, for health care, for justice and for dignity.” Conspicuously absent from the list were things such as “English skills, math skills, and critical-thinking skills.” Earlier this month, the meddlesome termites at the Southern Poverty Law Center filed a legal complaint against the State of Florida for setting the educational bar far lower for blacks and Hispanics than for whites and Asians, despite the fact that it’s how test results consistently skew. The SPLC’s complaint did not mention a recent videotaped attack in Florida where three black students pound a white student into the floor of a school bus. Nor did it consider the idea that the problem with America’s educational system may not be bad schools, but rather bad students, and the fact that test scores have flatlined despite the fact that per-pupil spending has skyrocketed in constant dollars.

THE RELIGION OF WORKPLACE VIOLENCE
Fort Hood shooter Nidal Malik Hasan, despite the fact that he allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar!” while slaying 13 people, despite the fact that he corresponded with al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki, and despite reports that he claimed he was “happy” when a jihadist murdered an American soldier in 2009, is being tried not as a terrorist but as a perpetrator of “workplace violence.”

Superstar atheist Richard Dawkins was called an “old white racist””€”which everyone knows is the absolute worst thing in the world”€”after he noted that despite Islamic claims to scientific preeminence, Muslim scientists had won a meager number of Nobel Prizes.

SPOUSAL HOMICIDE ON FACEBOOK
Social media’s slimy underbelly came to light yet again last week after 31-year-old Derek Medina of Miami allegedly shot his wife to death during a domestic dispute, then posted a picture of her corpse on Facebook. Medina is the author of several self-help e-books with rambling titles such as World Just Ask Yourself Why We Are Living a Life Full of Lies and How I an Emotional Writer Made All of My Professional Dreams Come True Blocking Society’s Teachings and How I Saved Someone’s Life and Marriage and Family Problems Thru Communication.
