TALLAHASSEE — In his continued push against the “indoctrination” of students, Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday signed legislation that will require public universities and colleges to survey students, faculty and staff about their beliefs and viewpoints to support “intellectual diversity.”
The survey will discern “the extent to which competing ideas and perspectives are presented” in public universities and colleges, and seeks to find whether students, faculty and staff “feel free to express beliefs and viewpoints on campus and in the classroom,” according to the bill.
Sidney Rittenberg died on August 24 of , ten days after his 98th birthday. He was probably the most famous American collaborator with the Chinese Communist regime of Mao Zedong (We are not counting Chinese government official, Israel Epstein, as American, although he had his book, The Unfinished Revolution in China, published during the crucial five years in which he lived in the United States). Like Epstein, Rittenberg got long obituaries in The New York Times and The Washington Post. They might not have been as glowing as Epstein’s, but they were far from being as negative as they might have been for this long-term leading turncoat and propagandist for the murderous Mao regime.
There’s a push to use gender-neutral language in the United States—they, them, zer. But how do people feel about the government using “birthing people” to describe mothers? A senator noticed this particular change in President Joe Biden’s budget request.
A source within the Biden State Department wishing to remain anonymous has shared with Human Events News a document that indicates that all U.S. “Diplomatic and Consular posts” are being encouraged to display shows of support for Black Lives Matter on Tuesday, May 25, the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death. The memo reads in part, “The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond (italics added) We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact.”
Using the Capitol Breach of January 6, 2021 as their excuse, the Pentagon, under Secretary of Defense LLoyd Austin, has begun a purge of extremists in the military. To that end, Austin has hired fellow West Point graduate Bishop Garrison to head the Countering Extremism Working Group and develop the plan for the purge.
According to CNN, 14% of those arrested for the incursion on January 6 were military veterans. Not active duty, but veterans. LLoyd Austin is using this as an excuse to purge those currently serving and institute Critical Race Theory. He released a video to support his 60 Day Stand Down. In the video, Austin asked soldiers to recommit themselves to the oath they took when they were sworn in and to share with leadership any experiences they have had with extremism in the ranks.
“Only a fool allows his enemy to educate his children.” –Malcolm X. What happened to the American education system? How did we end up here? Former Communist Bella Dodd has some answers in her book ‘School of Darkness’.
Former Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken says the “woke” era and cancel culture is dangerous for Democrats politically.
Franken, former head writer and performer on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” revealed that he personally knows many comedians who won’t perform on college campuses anymore as a result of cancel culture.
“You used to do pretty sophisticated, edgy stuff that you had to think about, and now anything, anybody who can possibly take offense can find a way to take offense,” Franken said during a discussion moderated by Howard Fineman that was organized by Jews United for Democracy. “And it really is too bad and stultifying for our debate, and it’s not good.”
Sen Josh Hawley joins Mark Levin on Life, Liberty & Levin tonight, May 2, at 8pm eastern on Fox.
Mark Levin: “So we have this massive censorship machine going on. Then you have little Parler that’s trying to start up and they all collude and they all get together, as if they’re all on the phone with each other, and … they cut them off … They take them off their store. They take them off their platform … It’s anti-American.”
Josh Hawley: “That is anti-American. That is anti-free speech. It’s anti-First Amendment … and make no mistake, the left is cheering them on.”

As recently as last summer, few people outside academia had heard of critical race theory, whose central claim is that racism, not liberty, is the founding value and guiding vision of American society. Then, President Trump issued an executive order last September banning the teaching of this “malign ideology” to federal employees and federal contractors.
Trump’s ban was blocked by a federal judge in December and immediately revoked by Joe Biden upon occupying the White House in January. Since then, federal agencies and federal contractors have resumed staff training on unconscious bias, microaggressions, systemic racism and white privilege – some of the most common but also most disputed concepts associated with the four-decade-old academic theory.
The Biden administration is on the offensive against extremism. However, it is having trouble defining the term.
The newly installed defense secretary, Lloyd Austin, has signed a memo ordering several “immediate actions,” including military-wide “stand downs,” to weed out “extremism” in the ranks of the military. Actions also included a review of and update to the DoD’s definition of extremism and a review and standardization of the screening questionnaire — “[t]o solicit specific information about current or previous extremist behavior, and to clarify that any demonstrably false answers provided in response could form the basis for punitive action for fraudulent enlistment.” Defense officials said the Pentagon is reversing Trump-era policies that banned transgender people from serving in the military. The Pentagon will also issue new rules that will broaden transgender people’s access to medical care and cosmetic surgery to imitate members of the opposite sex. Opposition to these policies may be considered extremist.
Parents continue to raise concerns about school teachers bringing their own political bias into the classroom.

If you are still weighing whether or not to remain on the Big Tech social media platforms, new policies being implemented by Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security should make your decision easier.
According to reports, DHS under Biden now sees “domestic extremists” everywhere since the Jan. 6 Capitol Building riot because the Democrat Party and the regime are using the incident as an excuse to become the 2021 version of the Nazi secret police, the Gestapo (and they called Donald Trump ‘Hitler’).
According to NBC News, DHS will implement a “sweeping set of policy changes” allegedly to bolster the massive agency’s ability to collect our data that will include “the sorts of public social media posts that threatened an attack on the” Capitol.
