Trump threatens to cut off funding from Marxist indoctrination centers disguised as American colleges and universities

Trump threatens to cut off funding from Marxist indoctrination centers disguised as American colleges and universities

July 14, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

If you needed another reason to a) vote for president in November and b) ensure that vote goes to President Donald Trump, this is it.

For a century, American Leftists under guise of “progressivism” have slowly but steadily infiltrated our country’s institutions. They set out to dominate the entertainment industry, the mainstream media, the scientific community and, of course, as much government at all levels as possible.

Included in this stealth infiltration was our academic institutions — from the lowest community college to the Ivy League. And by any measure, the Left has succeeded, probably beyond their wildest dreams.

Today, each of these industries and communities is ‘fully-owned’ by people steeped in Marxist propaganda, but probably the most universally valuable institution the Left has converted is the academic world. 

From kindergarten through to high school and at all levels of higher learning, Leftist Marxism is force-fed to students, and worse, American taxpayers have paid the tab for nearly all of it, in one form or another.

But we finally have a president who not only recognizes what has happened, but who understands that if the Leftist indoctrination isn’t stopped at some point, the America we bequeath to our kids and grandkids will essentially exist as a country that is the polar opposite of the constitutional republic established by our founders.

On Friday, President Donald Trump noted on Twitter that he will order his administration to reconsider the tax-exempt status schools he says are providing students with “radical indoctrination” instead of a bona fide education.

“Too many Universities and School Systems are about Radical Left Indoctrination, not Education. Therefore, I am telling the Treasury Department to re-examine their Tax-Exempt Status,” he tweeted, “and/or Funding, which will be taken away if this Propaganda or Act Against Public Policy continues. Our children must be Educated, not Indoctrinated!”

How can this be done? 

Liberty Headlines notes further: 

Previous guidance from the Internal Revenue Service lays out six types of activities that can jeopardize a nonprofit organization’s tax-exempt status, including political activity, lobbying and straying from the organization’s stated purpose. 

But ideology is not on the IRS’s list, said Terry Hartle, senior vice president of the American Council on Education, which represents university presidents. Any review of a school’s status would have to follow previously established guidelines, he said.

“It’s always deeply troubling to have the president single out schools, colleges or universities in a tweet,” Hartle said, the website noted. “Having said that, I don’t think anything will come of this quickly.”

No, what’s “deeply troubling” is that no president has done so until now. 

The claptrap that passes for ‘education’ in many institutions of higher learning is nothing short of political indoctrination, period. When students are forced to pay for mandatory classes on “women’s studies,” “black studies,” and other courses — usually with borrowed funds — that qualifies as force-feeding political ideas into students, and thus should be covered under the IRS’ rules.

But of course, like everything, what is considered ‘political’ and ‘ideological’ is subjective.

Not to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, however. During a show segment last week, he lambasted Harvard University for deciding to hold all courses during the 2020-21 school year online, because of ‘coronavirus,’ while declining to cut a single penny of students’ $50,000-a-year fee.

He then cited a far-Left Slate column by Jordan Weissmann, who claimed the cost isn’t any big deal anyway because kids don’t go to Ivy League schools for an ‘education.’

Rather, “The main benefit of an Ivy League education isn’t really classes… schools like Harvard, Stanford, Yale, and Princeton serve as four-year networking events and outsourced HR departments for companies in finance, tech, and media,” all of which are dominated by Leftists.

That’s correct, Carlson notes, adding, if it is true, “then why are these schools getting tax-free endowments that are larger than the GDP of some African countries?”

If President Trump has his way, that may come to a screeching halt.

    The best statement in this article is, “No, what’s “deeply troubling” is that no president has done so until now.” But that’s why WE elected Donald J Trump President.
    Promises made. Promises kept.
    Thank you Mr President! Another, much needed, issue addressed.

        Somebody confused what you said. You in a way compared the desire of Islamic terrorists and Marxists, both want the US destroyed. As you call him bo just wants the country torn down and reformatted by the likes of the groups he encouraged and supports like BLM, ANTIFA … ISIS just wants us all dead.

      My comment to WARD. Islamic TERRORIST’s are not Marksists at all! Democratic Party as it is today have a tendency to tern United States of America from being Republic Nation, to Socialism Country. This is where all denger of destroying our country’s Rules and principals being created by Founding Leaders in the Constitution, is! I don’t think that our country now have many Islamic Terrorists, but ISIS’s ideas are not recognazible by our population because an Educational trend shows failing quality. Most of young, and not so young people in the Educational Systems, don’t have enough courses of the History! I mean, the degradation of a population in existing and previously existed Countries in our Planet, who were chosen Marx and Engels’s philosophical ideas of Socialism that didn’t get good results everywhere!

    Apparently this has been going on for a LONG time, gradual; insidious. Now as I recall, in apx. 1976-77 a social studies teacher was making comments about the color make-up of our class – I say color because I don’t know, is it ethnicity? race? People have lots of colors and many people are mixed though they still can be thrown into one classification or the other (if that’s what you are doing – which is weird) depending on their tone.

    I also remember integration in the early 70’s in schools – kids actually got along fine (I was there – got on great with Ruthie, Sheila, Patricia others), we were already a mix of hispanic kids and white kids and we continued to get along and be kids.

    If you want to create division which it seems the Lefties (Dems in general) do, you spread lies – which they do, and attempt to create situations that leave the impression that one group is hating on the other. Generally not true. Always individuals who are just crappy people anyway who want to point at a difference as the reason they are put upon or the reason they don’t like you. These are the people to “social distance” from.

    Good!
    The tax payers should not be supporting any colleges through the tax system. I don’t want my tax dollars going toward colleges.
    Let the colleges find a way to support themselves.
    No I understand why the professors are making so much money.
    Stop supporting the colleges financially and watch those wages come back down to normal.

    Stop threatening and just do it Mr. President. Action makes a much bigger impression than threats with nothing happening. These scumbag so-called educators along with the university administrations think they are untouchable and as long as they are allowed to brainwash our young — they will. All these progressive phony PsOS in our universities should have been wiped out in the 60s and 70s for their BS. Don’t give warnings Mr. President — just STOP the funding to 10 or 12 hand picked biggest offenders and watch the word spread. They earned it, they deserve it — take away their money and watch them squeal like a stuck pig.

    I agree wholeheartedly!!!! A further step will be to carefully background check teachers in elementary and secondary schools as well for indoctrination because it has drifted down already. If a teacher wants to teach more than the subjects they are hired to teach without inflecting their personal views and politics on the children — don’t hire them.

    My opinion in this regard is that from kindergarten begin to study the history of this country. Parents complain about indoctrination to our children from elementary school but nothing has changed to the pessimistic system of education we have. They indoctrinate about homosexuality, hatred of whites, and hatred of blacks or Indians. The indoctrination about slavery, communist indoctrinations (based on social studies) all that is a time bomb in the students’ brains that by the way, the vast majority have problems with mathematics, the history of the USA and the most elementary that they do not know about the bill of rights, and other epigraphs of the constitution that governs them, and to make matters worse when they read they do it very badly. In colleges, there are Lesbian, Black, White, and Hispanic Clubs, each separating itself more and more from reality instead of focusing on their studies. That happens because until now the government has let that happen with very poor educational programs, giving funds to all those organizations. What they must do is create a Club without racism or intolerance, where all the students raise their voices without attacking the one who does not think like them, as it has been happening in California that they do not let others express themselves freely because if they do not think like them, they must be physically beaten, burn the buildings or accuse them of racists without thinking that only ignorance and lack of respect for society it is the focus of indoctrination with which communism feeds. That is what is destroying our democracy. I hope that these words of the President are taken into account: Our children must be Educated, not Indoctrinated!
