Now that “The war on terror is over,” according to a senior State Department Mideast expert, maybe the administration can now focus on winning the war against America’s school kids. 

 President Barack Hussein Obama never did acknowledge that the struggle against Islamic terrorists ever existed but it’s good to know it’s over and done with.  Let’s just thank God he singlehandedly tracked down and executed Usama bin Laden! 

Since 2012 is an election year and the National Education Association and the vast majority of America’s teachers sit firmly in his pocket, Obama can’t very well acknowledge that our public education system is in virtual shambles largely due to them, that battle for the hearts, minds, and souls of students may be more of a challenge than whipping al-Qaeda. 

Just as with our victorious war on terrorism, the assault on children is taking place on various levels, from violence in schools, to administrators setting unseemly examples, to indoctrination into perversion.

Above all else, parents like to think their kids will be safe and protected when they pack them off to school every morning.  Unfortunately, that’s far from the reality of what cherubs and teens encounter daily.  

CBSNews.com, not exactly a bastion of conservative alarmism, featured an article on violence in public schools as jointly reported by the Departments of Education and Justice.  (The article wasn’t considered sufficiently newsworthy to make televised news.)

The DoE and DoJ estimate that during the 2009-2010 school year some 1,183,700 violent crimes were committed in 73.8% of schools, horrendous figures in themselves although the fact that only a mere 25% or 303,900 of those crimes were reported to the police is even more stupefying. 

And the violence is far from confined to minor student altercations. 

The government estimates incorporate “rape, sexual battery other than rape, physical attack or fight with or without a weapon, threat of physical attack with or without a weapon, and robbery with or without a weapon.” (http://bit.ly/K3Cabl) 

I wouldn’t presume to offer causes for rampant school violence but, as for reporting it, I can say from personal experience that failure is mostly attributable to administrators’ pusillanimity and their fear of having parents discover their lack of control and lack of discipline. 

A male principal and a female assistant at the Scholars Academy in Quartzsite, Arizona demonstrated both personal lack of control and discipline at the same time they demonstrated another serious issue confronting America’s students: a lack of decorous professionalism on the part of the people who once were considered role models.

Teachers Make Out  Principal Steve McClenning and assistant Billie Madewell were caught on film at Scholars passionately groping and kissing during school hours in a school office.  Both McClenning and Madewell are married, though not to one another; he resigned, she was fired, and the town of Quartzsite was devastated.  (http://huff.to/IB8zp0)

Sadly, that public exhibition wasn’t nearly as disgraceful or unprofessional as much more common occurrences: teachers, male and female, seducing kids on school grounds, in parked cars, and in their homes, many of which incidents have been documented on this blog.   

I can also attest to the fact the McClenning-Madewell gross indiscretion was not unique to this generation. 

Years ago, a shop teacher came into our faculty room one morning bewildered over finding the principal huddled under the dashboard of his wife and fellow teacher’s car the previous afternoon. 

No one had the heart to tell him his wife had the nickname “kneepads Carol” and everyone knew she had been carrying on a long-term in-school and out-of-school affair with the principal.  

It gets better, or worse, depending on your perspective.   From the point of view of the homosexual community, the following should be encouraging.  From a normal perspective, it is disgusting. 

  Dysfunctional Catholic and avowed, proud homosexual Dan Savage is described by liberal, gay-friendly  Wikipedia as an “American author, media pundit, journalist, and newspaper editor.” 

Wikipedia fails to mention that Savage is a savage anti-Christian, a misanthrope.  Among his other repugnant ideas, he has characterized former Republican Rick Santorum senator as “the by-product of anal sex,” has suggested that Republican Senator Scott Brown should be an ”action figure that can be inserted into a rectum or vagina,” and has expressed his wish that Republicans ”were all fuc*ing dead.”  (http://bit.ly/oOGDIl)     

Nevertheless, also known for his campaigns against school bullying, Savage was invited to a high school journalism conference to address that issue.  During his talk to the  teens, he engaged in the most outrageous Christian and pro-homosexual bullying this side of Tehran.    

Savage quickly ditched his assigned topic in favor of launching into a foul-mouthed diatribe lambasting the Bible, Christian beliefs, and those students who refused to listen to his invective, while praising his “partner” for looking good in speedos. 

He attacked the Bible as “bulls*it.”  He discussed the sex lives of the high schoolers and advised, “I hope you’re all using birth control!”  He ripped the hundred who stormed out as “pansies,” an odd use of a word usually reserved for gays. (http://bit.ly/HILn9Z)  

There are countless other examples of how American schools and teachers are threatening, corrupting, and endangering our children.  

Ranging from confessed revolutionary and Obama’s Chicago confidante Bill Ayers’ instructing kids in his radical philosophy, to patriotic grade schoolers in Converse, Texas getting into trouble for wearing Wounded Warrior t-shirts in honor of their paralyzed father, to leftist ”educators” rallying en masse for the release of convicted Black Panther cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, to gay “days of silence” intimidating impressionable youngsters, the hazards confronting children today rival the dangers previously posed by foreign terrorists.
