It’s Logic Time Again: Indoctrination in Our Universities

Here’s the story:

The Surprise Lesson on Palestinians, Jews and Suicide Bombings Found in a Tennessee High School Textbook

Now, here is just one of the many fallacies in this “textbook.:”

In particular, the book, “The Cultural Landscape: An Introduction to Human Geography,” contains the question, “If a Palestinian suicide bomber kills several dozen Israeli teenagers in a Jerusalem restaurant, is that an act of terrorism or wartime retaliation against Israeli government policies and army actions?”

This is the fallacy of equivocation.  The textbook is trying to paint civilian irregulars conducting unsanctioned attacks against a sovereign nation the same as uniformed military combatants of an established government.  THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING!

In reality, international law defines irregular and un-uniformed militants who attack outside of the sanction of a sovereign government’s uniformed military as criminals.  They are not even afforded protections under the Geneva Convention.  Therefore, this “textbook” is pushing a one-sided political agenda, which is defined as indoctrination.

Oh, and another example of equivocation in this same quote: the Palestinians are not “at war” with Israel.  If they had actually declared war against Israel, this would all be a mute point as Israel would have eradicated the opposition by now.  So, once again, this “textbook” is knowingly equating two different things for the purpose of creating “legitimacy” to people who, in a civilized society under the rule of law, would be rightly and properly considered outlaws – or terrorists.

But not to worry: you and I are being taxed through the nose so the government can “lend” money via “student aid” to give to our universities in sums that amount to extortion so those same universities can turn our children against the very system that makes it possible for us to earn the money for them to steal to give themselves so they can indoctrinate more of our children against the system that makes it possible…

Oh, and the best part: SOME OF THE SINGLE RICHEST ENTITIES IN AMERICA ARE OUR UNIVERSITIES!  Yeah, did you know that?  Some of them earn enough off the interest from their trust funds to give EVERY ONE OF THE STUDENTS A FREE EDUCATION – and we’re talking IVY LEAGUE SCHOOLS!

Hypocrisy: thy name is Leftist.
