College Campus or Reeducation Camp?

Indoctrinate U.
Abraham Millers review of this important documentary film.

Evan Maloney's "Indoctrination U" is the film college parents will need to avoid at all costs. Not that Maloney's characterization of the campus as an Orwellian reeducation camp is inaccurate. Nor are the praises for Maloney as a documentary filmmaker exaggerated. Quite to the contrary, Maloney might well be, as critics claim, America's best, young, documentary filmmaker, and "Indoctrination U" just might be the most important documentary of the year.

But, after shelling out what can only be characterized as an obscene amount of money to send a child to college, can parents really come to grips with the reality of what their money is buying?

For nearly four decades, I was a college professor, an identity I whisper about behind closed doors. Today, as a parent of one college student and two about to be sent to reeducation camp, I'd like nothing more than to go through some reprogramming myself so that I can avoid the dissonance wrought by too much information.

Read the rest here.

Brainwashing American Students
By Julia Duin, World Peace Herald.

In the summer of 2007, Harvard appointed an Islamic history professor to head its Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Islamic Studies Program. Harvard is hiring the first of four endowed chairs in the program and is using some of the $20 million donated by a Saudi prince.

Georgetown University received a similar donation—funneling $20 million toward its Center for Muslim Christian Understanding, after its benefactor.
The center, part of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, trains many of America’s diplomats.
Winfield Meyers, director of Campus Watch said: “The prince new very well Georgetown’s in a milieu filled with lobbyists and opinion makers; thus any program of his will exert more influence there than at a university not in a power center like Washington.”

According to one Saudi press organization, the grants are meant to promote understanding and change America’s perceptions of Islam in the most fertile place, the university campus. The practice started around 1976, when the Saudi government established a King Faisal Chair in Islamic Studies for $1 million at the University of Southern California. Since then, grants for endowed chairs in Islamic and Middle Eastern studies centers have popped up at several major universities.
In 1998, the Sultan bin Abdulaziz al Saud Foundation gave $5 million to Berkeley’s Arab and Islamic Studies Center, whose post-docs have gone on to important tenure-track academic jobs, including Oxford, DePaul, Fordham, and Harvard universities.

In july 2000, the Harvard Divinity School accepted $2.5 million from the ruler of the United Arab Emirates to endow an academic chair in Islamic Religious Studies. However, Rachel Fish, a divinity student, began a protest, accusing the sheik of funding an anti-Semitic think tank in his capital, Abu Dhabi. Harvard officials said they would reconsider accepting the gift. In 2004, the sheik withdrew the funds.

The Israel on Campus Coalition, a group of Jewish organizations, released a study recently saying out of about 4,000 American institutions of higher learning, only nine have Israel studies centers, nine have Israel studies chairs, and 16 have visitng professors teaching about Israel.

Zuhdi Jasser, a Phoenix physician and a moderate Muslim who is chairman of the American Islamic Forum For Democracy said: “Islamists such as the radical fundamentalists seen with the Saudi Wahhabis exploit American universal tolerance to provide a vehicle for the dissemination of their propaganda free of critique. It is important to emphasize---‘free of critique’…it is the tolerance which permits that. One hopes that we correct our reponse, not by changing our tolerance, but by intensely critiquing political Islam and its incompatibility withour pluralistic democracy.”

Does this bother you? Consider the cost of tuition at a major university or college for 1 year, around $30 or 40,000 isn’t it?
What is it they are teaching our kids at these so called institutions of higher learning? Do you know? Do you care?

For that much money you should know. But it isn’t just about the money.

The left has infiltrated nearly every campus in America. Many are teaching professors or are an integral part of college or university administrations and boards.
You expect your children to graduate with a degree that will set them on a path of self determination and hopefully individual success and prosperity, but it is also likely they will come away from their reeducation masters indoctrinated with a philosophy and ideology that is appalling and quite chilling.

Find out what your children are learning, afterall it is likely your hard earned money that is paying for it.

As a side note and just as important I reference “The List of 45” taken from the book “The Naked Communist, written by W. Cleon Skousen. You can find the list clearly detailed
here, thanks to my good friend Snooper at AnewtOne.com.

Pay particular attention to items number 16 through 19, and 40 to 42. Chilling isn’t it. To gain an even better in depth understanding you may want to consider reading the book Naked Communist. If you are unable to find this book at your local library or book store, which is likely, it is still available for purchase online at
Amazon.com or Alibris.com .
