The reason I have very little respect for the modern educator, and specifically, the public education employee is because they have a tendency to support open communism even if they aren’t aware that they are. Communism in America has gained a foothold through intellectual educator types, which Barack Obama, Lyndon Johnston, and Woodrow Wilson all advocated. They called it progressivism so to make it appear that The United States was not following the path of their rival the Soviet Union, who was still considered an alley until the 1950’s. During that entire time, communism seeped under the doors of our borders through our intellectuals’ infatuation with Europe and the concepts of socialism spreading there under the work of Karl Marx.
I was reading through the West Chester Buzz the other day and I noticed a picture of the outgoing principal of Lakota East Keith Kline sitting at his desk with a flag display of the American flag with the Red Chinese flag and I had to check my eyes. Then I read the article, which you can see for yourself here.
The article was about how Lakota participated in a principal exchange program in April where Kline went to China’s Jingman NO. 1 High School in the Hubei Provinceas the Chinese principal Yuan Ye came to Lakota East. Yuan Ye was amazed at the creativity of the Lakota students and decided he wanted to take 100 copies of the Lakota East’s Spark Magazine back to China for students there to analyze and figure out how to emulate. This had Dean Hume, Lakota East journalism teacher and Spark advisor elated saying, “I think it is a grand slam in the 9th inning with two outs for the English department.” Apparently for Dean, it’s very important that a school in China wants 100 copies of the Spark Magazine. You can see that magazine for yourself here:
I personally like some of the kids who work on that magazine quite a bit, both present and former. They are intelligent kids full of ideas, and I thought about them as I let my feelings about what Dean Hume and Keith Kline said wash over me. Last September I gave a 3 hour interview with one of the Spark reporters just prior to the election, and the story was pulled—it appears by Hume so not to give the side of the story of the No Lakota Levy, which sounded like censorship to me. It made me very angry because I had granted a very detailed interview that was very personal, and the story was shelved because the school wanted to pass the levy. Several students reported to me that Hume would spend entire classes talking about me to his students and what a right-winged nut job I am, so to discredit me. One student was so upset that they went to see Keith Kline about the smear campaign. When I became enraged about it, some of these Spark students wrote to me and told me I had it all wrong, that Hume was a very fair and balanced teacher and that he treated me fairly in his classes. I felt that they were just covering for their very radical leftist journalism teacher, but I listened to their comments out of respect for them.
Knowing now a bit more about what Hume, and Kline thinks is a successful endeavor their behavior during the last election makes a lot more sense. China, being a communist country participates in excessive amounts of censorship, and has built their entire society around the concept of collectivism. The individual does not matter in China. This is why students are required to begin at 6 a.m. and stay in school until 10 p.m. with only a 3 hour break at 11:30. China does not care about the well-being of their students, only that they serve Red China as cells in a great collective body. This is precisely why principal Yuan Ye was so shocked that the American students exhibited so much creativity, because in America individuality is still valued, and creativity comes from the individual thoughts of a sovereign soul. Yet Hume thinks it’s wonderful that communist China wants 100 copies of his magazine so they can study it in a vain attempt to mimic the creativity of the American students, which of course they will fail miserably.
Kline stated in the West Chester Buzz article “If I could marry their work ethic with our instruction there would be no stopping us.” That statement alone indicates what educators all across the country have thought for over 100 years looking toward communism as the solution to the worlds problems. In education circles China is the shining example in the world as to how society should be governed because they are a communist society, and education officials are in love with communism termed in their language as progressivism. In communist societies, the collective serves the institution, property is “shared,” and censorship is enforced to keep outside ideas from corrupting the communist culture with crazy thoughts of independence and individual sovereignty.
The reporter who interviewed me on that hot September day before the election of 2011 acted as an individual and as they walked me through the halls of Lakota East many teachers and administrators peered at me with anger, since I represented the realization of another failed tax levy and future pay increases for their greedy labor requirements. Yet the reporter handled the situation with a lot of class, and even as I gave the interview, I suspected it would never see the light of day, because the institution itself at Lakota East is attempting to become more like Communist China in it’s methods. Kline himself stated, “The Chinese are trying to focus more on critical thinking skills, creativity, and teamwork, and want to get away from their test-driven structure, which is huge for them. It is interesting because our country seems to be going in the opposite direction.” He’s right about that. American educators have been chasing China as the shining example of how to conduct society, and they have been doing it for so long, they don’t even see that it is communism that they are teaching students, not capitalism—the life blood of the American economy.
There is a reason that China does not produce great films that the world craves to see, or produces music that is on our top 40 music charts—it’s because they lack creativity because they are a communist society serving the needs of the collective. That is why they will always fail when it comes to creativity. Their work ethic is fantastic because they have no sense of self—as a culture. They do not value individualism, and it shows.
This is the path of even great schools like Lakota East, as the Chinese flag flies proudly on the desk of an American high school principal. Educators and politicians want communism in America and they are teaching it to our youth. The evidence is everywhere particularly among the attitudes that the educators exhibit. For Dean, I’d be more proud if a school in Georgia wanted copies of the Spark to show their students in a world of competitive ideas, not a communist country where even a color photograph would impress them. That’s the difference. For an educator to be recognized by their idols in the education system of Communist China is a high honor indeed, and the focus of what they plan to spend our hard-earned tax money on—a path toward Communist America lead by the education elite and their censorship of those who oppose them.
It must be terrible to be so easily impressed. For more info on China and how it got to where it is, CLICK HERE. You will see our own future as it’s happening right now because of employees of public education.
This is what people are saying about my new book–Tail of the Dragon
“Just finished the book and am sweating profusely. Wow, what a ride !!! Fasten your seat belts for one of the most thrilling rides ever in print.“
While you wait for Tail of the Dragon, read my first book at Barnes and Nobel.com as they are now offering The Symposium of Justice at a discount which is the current lowest price available.

I was very disapointed when the story wasnt covered- we all deserve both sides.
And…………..the tool has the American flag displayed beneath China.
It’s always to the right of all others. The viewers left.
She gets displayed wrong often when Ochavez speaks when “it” dosen’t have the freakazoid yellow shower curtain with the cherubs and muslim crescents behind “it.”
Appears Kline drank the goo right down. Is he a closet occupuppy?
We need re-education camps not for the naysayers but the dolts who don’t embrace or understand American exceptionalism.
I know of a course coming up with his name all over it. I never want to meet people like him. I’d rather drink battery acid.
An old friend of mine just brought his newly married chinese wife here that he met on the web. I’ve talked to her twice. Both times she told me what communism in China is really like.
Why are you teaching what you don’t know? Go live there for 2 years. Then teach what you’ve learned.
That’s why she’s looking for a husband online. Actually, you’d be surprised how communist governments view losing their women to American men through online marriages. They hope to “infiltrate” American culture by mixing races this way. The women just want out of the communist country, but the government officials see it as a propaganda move. Men tend to bend their moral code around the women they have sex with–that is until they get tired of the sex. You don’t see American women trying to marry men from Russia or China. That should tell the world a lot.
We all know what’s going on. (His friends) Wait til she gets her full taste of freedom. It’s not love for her. Enjoy your trip but stop announcing your gone please. It unnerves me. 😉 Talk about it after the fact.
Thanks for your concern. But I trust my son-in-law to watch over things for me. In fact, I am halfway tempting them to try. He needs the practice of dealing with them. So it’s a training excersise in a way. : )
I believe Paul can rise to the challenge–so are you at the moth man festival?
No, a whip show at a new ranch a friend of mine is starting.
Of course Keithie Boy drinks the koolaid. I glad he got a big raise, because he is going to have one helluva long drive every day. At least now there is hope that the new principal won’t put up with much of the garbage that he would overlook.
Don’t let the door hit you on the way out kk.
It’s all smoke and mirrors. By the way, we’re still down in Virginia. I’ve found a “hot spot” that actually gets a signal down in these mountains on the border of Kentucky and Virginia. Pretty rugged area.
It’s a long drive…..to deep center field….Rich Hoffman has hit a home run!!! This article is right on.
I bought a new case for my iPhone the other day-an Otterbox Defender. I noticed on Ebay and Amazon that there are many “fakes” or copies of this item made to an inferior quality but selling for half the usual retail price while being advertised as authentic . I’ve observed the same phenomenon with RC helicopters, computer parts and other items- Chinese factories “ripping off” other Chinese “companies” and selling knock-off products. Even though many things are made in China very very few are designed or invented there. They are extremely good a putting a lot of time and energy into reverse engineering and copying others, whether to the original specs or to lower specs and a lower cost.
This dovetails nicely with the previous article about The Fountainhead and great innovations never coming from the collective- always an independent mind. One of the big differences I see in China and Japan is that the cool things I’ve seen come out of Japan- the Miata, million-selling Nintendo games like Mario Brothers and Donkey Kong, cameras, and much more- always were designed by one person who was recognized for his achievements. The same could never be said of China.
LOL, thanks. You know what’s worse–that the educrats are so happy to have the praise of of some shrinky dink communist. I mean to put it in Dean’s words, it’s a “grand slam” to get a few good words and a hundred copies of his magazine ordered in a communist classroom. I was at an event yesterday where thousands of publications similar to the Spark were passed out to a bunch of horse riders at a trail celebration in Virgina. In capitalism that’s small potatos. In communism 100 sounds like a lot. But in capalism, 100 is the amount of galleys you send out for a book, or the samples you give out at Costco for a new cruise liner you’re advertising. Not for a bunch of village people who need padding in the bottom of their chicken coups so their children can have eggs before the state of China comes to take away some of the eggs because a hen laid too many.
Well, I wouldn’t say it’s censorship, because Spark is a public forum magazine, which means that the school by law cannot limit what the kids decide to publish. As for Hume, he can only guide or give advice if they need it…he cannot tell the young journalists to “take something out.” In the end, it’s always up to the writer. Hume strongly encourages kids to show both sides…in this case, I remember how something happened with one of the writer’s sources, which caused all sorts of problems. On no account was the magazine purposely leaving out “the other side.” I don’t know the details, as I wasn’t the writer, but I do remember that it definitely wasn’t a censorship issue, but a problem with finding anti-levy sources willing to speak out. That was the dilemma. I wish you would write to the editors though. They’d most likely would love to clear everything up for you.
As for the Chinese, it’s probably exciting for Hume to have his students’ magazine admired by people living on the other side of the world, and I see nothing wrong with that. The fact that any of China’s youth are interested in creating a magazine that’s as uncensored and sometimes controversial as the Spark is amazing because it shows that there might just be some hope for freedom in their media someday.
I gave several anti levy side interviews and could have arranged any number of contacts for every demographic group. Those interviews did not make it into the Spark. These were before everything degenerated. Things were still somewhat civil. I actually sat down with one of your reporters at the school for over two hours. Not a peep.
Actually, I do remember now. The pr
Actually, I do remember now. The problem was that we had an anti-levy source who was factually incorrect in almost everything he/she said and we were trying to find someone who was actually intelligent when it came to being anti-levy, but none of them were willing to speak. I know you probably won’t publish this, but that’s okay. Just so you know.
By the way, I live in a four person family. My mother is the breadwinner of the family (PHd, surgeon) while my dad stays at home to watch over my younger brother. We’re really happy as a family and I know you won’t change your mind, but I find it sad to see that you hold sexist views. The point of feminism is for women to be able to choose what they want to do with their lives and not be looked down on because of it. Your wife wants to be a housewife? Great, but at least she chose it. My mom wanted to be a surgeon? That’s great too. She CHOSE it. Contrary to popular belief, feminism is not about hating men, but instead about having the same opportunities as men.
I actually don’t know if that person who was factually incorrect was you, so please don’t assume that. I just know that there was some confusion of some sort.
Nobody should have restrictions on the life they choose. People call you sexist when they don’t have another answer to an argument. I have traditional values, that is not the same thing. It sounds like you have a nice family. As for the facts, I published them, spoke about them, and wrote about them extensively. I’m still waiting for somebody to refute them.
