A chaplain who doesn’t believe in God is about as useful as a butcher who doesn’t believe in meat.
In this age of “cancel culture,” donors are justifiably squeamish about their names appearing on a public list of donors to advocacy groups. Even the American Civil Liberties Union said the measure would have protected citizens’ right to speech and association through donations.
And the bill would not have changed the reporting requirements of political campaigns.
The course overview justifies Japan’s aggression (Remember Pearl Harbor?) as the empire’s “attempt to roll back Euro-American colonialism.”
In the video, teacher Gabriel Gipe says, “I have an Antifa flag on my [classroom] wall and a student complained about that — he said it made him feel uncomfortable. Well, this [Antifa flag] is meant to make fascists feel uncomfortable, so if you feel uncomfortable, I don’t really know what to tell you. …”
School officials had to know this teacher was a bad egg. Parents complained during a school board meeting that he also displayed a poster of Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedong on his classroom wall.
While most teachers are great – and underappreciated – parents still have a responsibility to know what their children are being taught.
Its General Administration of Press and Publication has done something that will help its young people grow up and compete with our young people.
That agency controls public speech, and we don’t want any such agency here. Then again, Google, Facebook and Twitter have assumed that role in our country.
But back to what the Chinese did. For people younger than 18, it has limited access to online video games to just three hours a week.
I’m only being partially serious in offering this thumbs up, as government should never control what citizens watch or how they spend their time. For children, that’s the parents’ job.
But sadly — and I was also guilty with my kids — parents often do a lousy job of limiting video game time.
