I sometimes wonder whether the dumbing down of society has taken its full effect. People are believing the Earth is flat, others going online in social media and saying the most stupid of things. Whoever is behind it all, it seems to be working. Humanity is blindly following whatever the politicians tell them. It’s almost maddening to observe.

Public schools in Texas would rename slavery as 'involuntary relocation' under new social studies standards proposed to the state's education board

Public schools in Texas would describe slavery to second graders as 'involuntary relocation' under new social studies standards proposed to the state's education board. A group of nine educators submitted the idea to the State Board of Education as part of Texas' efforts to develop new social studies curriculum, according to the Texas Tribune.

The once-a-decade process updates what children learn in the state's nearly 8,900 public schools. The board is considering curriculum changes one year after Texas passed a law to eliminate topics from schools that make students 'feel discomfort.'

Board member Aicha Davis, a Democrat who represents Dallas and Fort Worth, raised concerns during a June 15 meeting that the term wasn't a fair representation of the slave trade. The board sent the draft back for revision, urging the educator group to 'carefully examine the language used to describe events.'

'I can't say what their intention was, but that's not going to be acceptable,' Davis told The Texas Tribune on Thursday. 'The board -- with unanimous consent -- directed the work group to revisit that specific language,' Keven Ellis, chair of the Texas State Board of Education said in a statement issued late on Thursday.

The group consists of nine educators, including a professor at the University of Texas. It is one of many such groups that are advising the state education board to make changes to the curriculum.

Part of the proposed draft standards obtained by The Texas Tribune say students should 'compare journeys to America, including voluntary Irish immigration and involuntary relocation of African people during colonial times.'

In this particular case, the have been given a copy of Senate Bill 3, Texas' law which dictates how slavery and issues of race are taught in Texas. The law stipulates slavery cannot be taught as part of the true founding of the United States and that slavery was nothing more than a deviation from American values.

Woke Disney shows transgender man offering little girl advice on which tampons to buy in new children's animated series Baymax!

The new show, Baymax!, features what is believed to be the company's first transgender character, who offers period advice. In one of the episodes, Baymax asks a woman in the tampon aisle for advice, as he is shopping for period products for Sofia, who got her first period. After asking for help, a swarm of people offer the robot advice, including a male character wearing a transgender flag shirt. He tells Baymax he prefers pads with wings as others suggest an array of options. Parents took to Twitter to criticize the notion, saying it was 'stealing childhood from children' and teaching that 'men can have periods to children.'

Teachers union proposes officially replacing 'mother' with 'birthing parent'

The National Education Association proposed a resolution that would change the word "mother" in contracts to "birthing parent" for the purpose of being inclusive to the LGBTQIA+ community.

The resolution would be voted on Wednesday by the Representative Assembly (RA), comprised of 6,000 educators, in Chicago as well as virtually. NEA's resolutions represent the teachers' union's opinions and beliefs. It was unclear whether the resolution passed. Fox News Digital reached out to the NEA for comment and asked whether the resolution passed but did not immediately receive a response.

"Using this contract language, members need not worry about how a Board of Education/solicitor defines ‘maternity leave,’ ‘mother,' and/or ‘father’; the language is an inclusive reflection of how LGBTQIA+ members build families," the proposed resolution said.

These resolutions are known as "new business items" (NBI) are proposed by delegates. It takes 50 delegate sponsors to bring the NBI to the RA floor for debate and then to a vote, according to Education Week.

Tiffany Justice of Moms for Liberty told Fox News Digital that she is now calling the NEA the "K-12 Cartel" because they are holding parents and children hostage to a radical agenda. "We believe in American teachers, and we don't believe that the lack of focus that the union has on children is represented," she said.

"Normal people don't use the term chestfeeding or birthing person or any of this stuff," Nicole Neily of Parents Defending Education said. "I think it just further underscores how completely out of touch the teachers' unions… are from the concerns of normal parents."

Right on cue! Pious woke mob including Pete Buttigieg's husband Chasten attack CNN host Fareed Zakaria over his column warning Dems to 'forget pronouns'

The oped titled: 'Forget Pronouns: Democrats need to become the party of building things,' urged Democrats that getting 'stuff done' is 'a lot more important to most Americans than using the right pronouns.' Less than 24 hours after Zakaria's posted the column on his Twitter, Chasten Buttitgieg wrote a scathing response that went out to his more than 600,000 Twitter followers, calling out Zakaria's column as 'wildly inappropriate.' Addressing someone by the name/pronoun they prefer is free, easy, and kind. Using them builds community and belonging. Democrats can walk and chew gum. We can fix roads and build bridges while also making it a little easier to go about your life. That's called freedom,' Chasten wrote. His tweet continued: 'It is wildly inappropriate to instruct Democrats to toss aside an entire group of Americans in order to win. Democrats are making historic investments and bold moves while proposing life-saving and democracy-strengthening legislation that republicans continue to vote no on.' His response garnered more than 9,000 likes, and 1,000 retweets. On Friday evening, The Washington Post revised the headline removing the two words: 'Forget Pronouns,' to its new headline: 'Democrats need to become the party of building things.'

I just read something about a transgender inmate impregnating two others. My investments and life savings are in peril, things are going straight down the pooper and this is what we are talking about because .... I don't know.

Saw BB last night and thought of our pronoun problems when I heard this and laughed. Then again, this looks like a Trump rally and 'stand by your man' would be equally applicable in the political thread

Agreed, my 401k is tanking causing me to replan for the worst which I think is yet to come...Some guy on CNN the other day said we should give Biden more time to fix everything, fucking really?...Well he has 2 more years, but his trend is to screw things up more rather than fix anything...

I smelled it in the wind last year and rebalanced my 401k. Had been aggressive and been doing extremely well but I knew it couldn't last and that I am getting closer to my actual retirement age - I'm 58 this month. Took a more conservative stand and that probably helped. I was dumb enough to look at it for the first time since then and came away with Fear and Loathing for the Biden administration. PRR something like -12.5 % this year and I think the average is over 15% so in that sense it sucks less than it might.

Makes me goddamned sick to see that and then stand there each and every day and deal with dozens of illegals up my ass which are an obvious result of the border insanity. Many, many more of them than I have ever seen before and steadily increasing. I am perfectly polite as long as they are despite the language barrier but take pains to completely avoid them and NO I am not learning Spanish. Thought I wanted to a while but it rubs against the grain right now. F that, he people who engineered this lunacy live in gated compounds with security. We have preschool children with masks on for zero reason while every day thousands pour across the border who don't even have the basic vaccines that none of us are in contention about. I have two very Left friends who live in Dallas and gee, I haven't heard the usual kvetching from down there in some time. A bit like the dog that finally caught the UPS truck - now you got what you wanted and don't know what to do with it.

So for all the celebrity hypocrites who said they were running off to Canada because Trump was so evil I say 'have fun' because that Woke Horseshit is all over them and lately it doesn't sound like much fun up there anymore. The Left reacted with over-the-top shrieking insanity and developed a double standard that is absolutely galling yet was a strategy that Reich Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels would have instantly recognized and would applaud the method if not the content. We're about to have another nauseating wave of it, much like diarrhea - you thought it was over but oh no, here it comes again. DT has been making noises and so has the RNC and you can either believe they are playing some deep game or it's as blatantly obvious as it appears to be that he'll be the candidate. Thing is, Trump might really not have been that bad overall but he really was targeted and in the end revealed himself to be the egomaniacal nitwit that he really is because he was naive enough to allow himself to be played. Other presidents spoke about the good of the nation as a whole, some more convincing than others. DT can't speak effectively beyond a rally where the topic is himself. My Fear and Loathing includes the fact that he probably will run and they are going to do the damned thing as they did before and it'll work - I shudder to think what could be more over the top (intentional distraction) that what we've seen so far.
