Showtalk said...

What about the cost to all students who graduate illiterate?
>>>citing harm to students of color<<<
 
Remember, the Democrat's stance is always supposedly "for" the minority, the underdog, the indegeneous people, people of color, etc... per their claims, but it's actually not about the minority, the underdog, the indegeneous people, people of color, etc... at all.
 
Which does greater harm to the students of color?
 
1) Allowing them to graduate high school without the proper skills denying them the ability to hold and keep a good job?
 
2) Requiring them to take an additional year or two to gain the proper skills which will be necessary in the future?

But to get back to your point, could they have downgraded the skills of the majority to fit the minority?

Democrats Bring Back the Salem Witch Trials

October 16, 2023
By Jim Betti

The hangman’s noose was around 60-year-old Salem Massachusetts resident Bridget Bishop’s neck, and she prepared to die.  Convicted of being a “witch,” she was sentenced to hang by the neck until she was dead.  There was no tangible evidence against Bridget.  The conviction was obtained based on “spectral evidence.”  Several young girls testified that Bridget had pricked them with pins.  In the courthouse, when Bridget looked at the young girls, they immediately threw themselves on the floor in apparent painful convulsions.  Their bodies twisted in unnatural ways. The witch-hunting judge reminded the frightened townfolk jury that the devil needed to be dealt with and for the jury to stick to their strict Puritan principles.
 
The ladder holding Bridget off the ground was pulled away.  She fell and slowly strangled, kicking hard.
 
Before the witch trials were finally ended, 12 more innocent individuals were convicted and hanged.  The spectral evidence accusers, corrupt judges, and complicit juries were never held accountable.
 
The elements needed for a witch hunt to occur are alive and well in 2023 America.  A cult-like philosophy and a corrupt judgment process with the power to convict and enforce punishment are essential.  A biased media establishment is also required (to misinform the public).  With these elements intact, all that is left to initiate the witch hunt is an unaccountable accuser.
 
1. The best modern-day example of a witch hunt is what happened to United States Supreme Court judge Brett Kavanaugh.
 
During his confirmation, after her social media accounts were scrubbed, Christine Blasey Ford came forth and accused the judge of sexual harassment.  Her bizarre, unsubstantiated story had its genesis in repressed high school memories.  Then two more female accusers surfaced.  Their vile accusations also lacked any substantiation.  The lack of any corroboration of the women’s stories didn’t matter to the cult-like progressive United States senators.  They had the power to put a figurative noose around Kavanaugh’s neck and had every intention to pull it tight.
 
The corrupt, biased media gleefully did their best to make the lynching happen.  The confirmation hearing crescendoed when Alaska’s Sen. Murkowski besmirched herself and gave the lynching of the innocent nominee her blessing.  If it had not been for the surprising courage of Maine senator Susan Collins, the ladder would have been pushed out from underneath Brett Kavanaugh, and he would have been left to dangle in the wind.
 
Under scrutiny, all three Kavanaugh accusers’ stories fell apart.  Their accusations were not at all different from the Salem witch accusers’ spectral arguments.  And just like the young female Salem witch accusers, there were no consequences.
 
2. American Universities have every element required to go witch-hunting.
 
Whenever a young man is accused of sexual harassment, these universities convene kangaroo courts.  Just like in 1692 Salem, these young men are not given due process or allowed to face their accusers.  Woke administrators are judges and jury and do not hesitate to bring harsh judgment on the defenseless accused.  Many real courts of law have overturned these abominations, but even with monetary settlements, the young men can never get back what these woke institutions have taken from them.
 
3. Anyone who works in corporate America knows that the elements of witch-hunting are available and embraced by woke administrators.
 
Any accuser can anonymously make claims against an employee.  Human resources officers afraid to fight the politically correct environment will not hesitate to act.  CEOs looking for ways to demonstrate their politically correct credentials will oversee the witch hunt inquisition.  Many helpless employees have felt the noose tighten around their necks.
 
But what has happened to Donald Trump gives a whole new relevance to the phrase “witch hunt.”
 
There are places in America where Donald Trump cannot get a fair trial or any type of court adjudication — places where progressives have total control of the entire judicial process and the elements required for a witch hunt thrive.
 
In New York City, a woman accused Donald Trump of raping her in a locked department store dressing room.  Incredibly, she was unable to remember in what year her life-altering event happened or re

Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser Figures Out That Face Masks Are Fueling Crime

By Mike LaChance
Oct. 31, 2023 9:00 pm

Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has finally figured out that face masks give criminals an advantage.
 
The city had to repeal a decades old ban on face masks to mandate them during the Covid pandemic. Now they are trying to repeal the repeal.
 
Crime in the city is out of control, particularly carjackings.
 
The Washington Examiner reports:
 
Mayor Bowser admits that masks fuel crime waves
 
Forty years ago, the D.C. City Council was worried about a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan, so they passed an anti-mask law.
 
Three years ago, the D.C. City Council was worried about police mistreatment of black residents (and worried about COVID) and so they repealed the anti-mask law as part of a “criminal-justice reform” package in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police.
 
Today, the mayor of Washington, D.C., is worried about the crime wave sweeping the district — particularly the surge in teenage criminals — and so she has proposed to restore the anti-mask law.
 
It’s quite a journey for the anti-mask law: It was passed to fight the KKK, repealed to fight racist policing, and now perhaps restored to protect the residents in mostly black neighborhoods. The law arguably violates the First Amendment, and it has never been consistently enforced. On the other hand, any honest observer will say that the rise in masking since mid-2020 has contributed to the crime wave in Washington, D.C., and some of the surrounding suburbs.
 
Just stunning.
 
How are people supposed to know who is wearing a mask for ‘health’ purposes? What a farce.

It took almost 4 years to figure out that masks hide identity while committing crimes?  Anyone who watches a TV crime drama knows that.  Anyone who has any sense knows that.  How is she still mayor?

Only because it's before the 2024 elections to make them look like they're doing something about crime.

They need to make people think they're working for them until the elections.

Then, once they've won... they go back to the old lax on crime policies again.
