An offer that yes, I really could refuse...
Last week I reached into the mailbox and pulled out something so Anti Me that I literally burst out laughing when I read it. Since it was received unsolicited and unexpectedly, I even checked the address on it to make sure it was delivered to the right house or was, perhaps, some asinine mass-mailer addressed to "Occupant".
However, in this case, it may very well have been addressed to "Occupier".
Sure enough, in my hands, was a flyer brochure offering me the opportunity to get my Masters of Education from Cambridge College's National Institute for Teaching Excellence. Odd, since I lack a Bachelor's of Education. In fact I'm a college dropout. But here I was being offered a Master's of Education.
The program? Drum roll, please: Teaching Social Justice.
Ladies & gentlemen, you simply can't make this up. The Leftists and Liberals who run the Socialist Indoctrination Centers we used to call colleges & universities are furthering their agenda by enticing people into a brainwash session in the Cult of Social Justice. I suppose no one fails, and at the end instead of graduation they hold a Tee Ball lunch at Chuck E. Cheese and everyone gets a trophy so no one feels bad.
The brochure is available for your perusal online, the exact same one that I received, although it loses a little of its heart-string pulling effect to see it on the screen instead of feeling that 100% Post Consumer Recycled beige paper in your guilty American 1% Elitist Oppressor lily white callous-free hands.
They invite you to Boston, home of such liberal icons as the Kennedys and John Kerry (rich 1% types) and Hahhhhvvuhd Yahhhd, lovey, for such classes as "Re-Reading Global Oppression" (because America is so evil and we should all apologize for being Americans), "Foundations of Social Justice Education (so you can indoctrinate your future students into the Cult of Liberalism), "Human Brain, Human Learning", to learn the latest techniques in brainwashing & guilt-tripping, and "Multicultural Diversity Issues in the Workplace and Classroom", so you can make the white kids feel like crap and force everyone to wear a burka for the day while singing songs about Obama, Mmm Mmm Mmm....
I wonder if the advertised curriculum Professional Seminars include guest speakers like Bill Ayers or Van Jones? Only the first semester is on-campus; the rest is "distance learning' to get you back into your own community and start agitating the proletariat in your local kollektiv zones. Your open electives can include attending local Occupy riots or registering dead people to vote for Democrats.
And the brochure also advertises something else without actually saying it: Down With Whitey. Well, I guess white women are okay because white men oppress them, and we all know the white man is the root of all social injustice and evil in the universe. Might explain why there are no white men in the brochure. Blacks, Hispanics, and Asians, mostly women, but not a single example of a male Caucasian in this brochure. White Men Need Not apply. You are the Oppressor, not the Oppressed. Everything is handed to Whitey on a golden platter & served with silver spoons.
Somehow I missed the dinner bell on that one...
Of the two graphics in this little piece, one was made in part by me and one is an actual poster that happens to look like a communist propaganda poster. Kinda scary, huh?
