Tucker Carlson takes on the issue of rampant education system failures that is being evidenced by a wide range of social aberrations, starting of with the refusal to honor and to claim being offended by the American flag. He had originally booked representatives of the Student Senate at the University of California at Davis, who had just voted to stop requiring the flag at their meetings, to come onto his show and attempt to defend their position. They got cold feet, apparently aware that they had no legitimate basis for their stance, and stopped returning his phone calls.
Instead Tammy Bruce was more than willing to join him for an analysis of what’s going on with these lame brains. It just so happened that this was also the topic of a column she is writing for the Washington Times, so the information is readily available and fresh.
Bruce says, “There are now so many strange issues, that it’s not just about being snowflakes and wanting safe spaces, it now has turned into violence, like what we saw at Berkeley” and shutting down speakers they don’t agree with. She says, “It’s fascinating that you actually have to opt-in and have to argue to have the American flag present at student senate meetings. And their argument is that everyone’s view of what the United States is is different.
She notes the person who is attacking the flag at UC Davis is a naturalized citizen, a foreigner we allowed into our midst who is now biting us in return. Bruce contends that they’ve come here, not to be part of America but to punish it. They agree that if the people who wind up running your country hate that country, you’re in trouble and that is the situation America is facing.
Carlson asks why we’re surprised, noting, “If you allow generations of kids to grow up in an education system that teaches them the country they live in is immoral, fatally flawed from the start, that it’s disgusting and not worth defending and the ideals it was founded upon are repulsive, this is what you get, isn’t it?”
Bruce says it’s what you get but that “Americans tend to not raise children like that.” She points out “It’s either a choice of individuals going to public schools where this kind of mob mentality prevails, versus private schools.” She raises the $38,000 that Clemson just spent to be told that requiring people [students] to show up on time is racist.
She notes how that type of thinking tilts the playing field in favor of those who understand the importance of being to your job on time, particularly in media positions but on the larger scale, the loss of a generation who doesn’t understand the requirements of business and industry or the concept of love of country and the future.
