Here you see laid out just about every fetish of the wilder American Right, and what is truly scary is how closely much of it matches what comes out of the mouths of Dr Nelson (our Education Minister) and his Brain Kevin. Not that they go quite this far in their litany of rather unAustralian Aunt Sallies, but it is such a shame we have not been able to inoculate Australian politics against the really rabid things conservatism often means in America:
Teach accurate history about western civilization and western traditions; eliminate anti-western, anti-European, anti-male, anti-Christian, anti-Bible bias from the hypocritical academic establishment of religious left extremists.
Teach accurate history about the United States of America and its traditions; eliminate anti-American, anti-European, anti-male, anti-Christian, anti-Bible bias.
Teach accurate study of political philosophy, including accurate descriptions of liberalism, conservatism, libertarianism, and populism.
Teach accurate study of our nation’s system of limited government; eliminate pro-Communist/Fascist/Socialist bias and show that Communism and Socialism are really just Fascism with a smiling face. Teach the real history of the pro-Stalinist and pro-Nazi movement in the United States, Hollywood and the federal government.
Teach accurate study of the origins of socialism and traditional conservatism to show that America’s founding fathers would have totally rejected today’s secular and neo-pagan socialism. The socialism of today’s local, state and federal governments in America is actually a form of anti-American theophobia and Christophobia that comes from Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the French Revolution, Karl Marx and his friend Engels, Charles Darwin, Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, John Dewey, Adolph Hitler, and former campus radicals and other students indoctrinated by Fascist Marxism who now pass themselves off as “moderates.”
But that they are so close to this brand of craziness is really, really disturbing.
