The Politically Incorrect Show - 26/09/2000
[Music - Die Fledermaus]
Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Tuesday September 26, proudly sponsored by Neanderton Nicotine Ltd., the show that says bugger the politicians & bureaucrats & all the other bossyboot busybodies who try to run our lives with our money; that stands tall for free enterprise, achievement, profit, & excellence, against the state-worshippers in our midst; that stands above all for the most sacred thing in the universe, the liberty of the human individual.
[Music up, music down!]
According to last week's Education Weekly, "The Ministry of Education will create 23 new jobs aimed at maximising links between Maori & the education sector & will proceed to fill these over the next two years." The people who are appointed to these positions will be called "Pouwhakataki" & the links-maximising will be called "Whakaaro Matauranga." A Mr Doherty from the Ministry says the Pouwhakataki might "facilitate development of a strategic education plan or sit down with a new Maori mum & talk about her career aspirations & about the sorts of education programmes her new child might enter. They might also be working collaboratively with school principals & trustees who want to connect more with their Maori communities." What this PC-speak amounts to in plain English is that more of your tax dollars will be used as fuel for the apartheid gravy-train.
Now I refer you to a feature article by Debra Harrington in a recent Dominion, which begins:
"Industry sources are sounding alarm bells on the poor skill level of Kiwi job applicants, & the finger is being pointed at our education system."
The article includes a simple test used by one firm for new entrants, with questions such as "How many centimetres in 2 metres?" & "Divide 460 by 4." 55% of the company's job applicants fail this test.
Further on, Debra Harrington writes:
"In industrial environments, even the most menial job can involve operating machinery & it is important that staff can read & understand instructions. Employers talk of having to teach people to read a bus timetable so they can get to work on time. One report claimed that only 10% of applicants at an engineering company could measure the length, height & width of a table, & write their name & phone number."
Ladies & gentlemen, for years I have referred to those in charge of our state education system as "child-molesters of the mind." Their evil, like its sexual equivalent, can scar or cripple children for life. We now have a generation of teachers that is itself illiterate. While our children are being brainwashed with Politically Correct nonsense on race, gender & sexual orientation issues, while girls are being offered abortions without their parents' knowledge or consent, they are also being denied the opportunity to become literate & numerate - & the best the Ministry can come up with is 23 new bureaucrats steeped in the same nonsense whose "mission" it will be to promulgate even more of it.
Nothing is more urgent than that we release our children from the molesters' clutches. If it be true that a nation's health can be determined in significant measure by the state of its education system, then our country is all but terminally ill. The antidotes of reason & privatisation could still work - but it is almost too late.
