A Speech Every American High School Principal Should Be Giving

Published:

This is a speech given to the students in a Colorado High School by their new Principal.

 

A Speech Every American High School Principal Should Give.

By Dennis
Prager.

To the students and faculty of our high school:

I am your
new principal, and honored to be so. There is no greater calling than to teach
young people.

I would like to apprise you of some important changes
coming to our school. I am making these changes because I am convinced that most
of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have worked against
you, against your teachers and against our country.

First, this school
will no longer honor race or ethnicity. I could not care less if your racial
makeup is black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could not care less if your
origins are African, Latin American, Asian or European, or if your ancestors
arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships. The only identity I care about,
the only one this school will recognize, is your individual identity -- your
character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this
school will care about is American.

This is an American public school,
and American public schools were created to make better Americans. If you wish
to affirm an ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have
to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity, race and non-American
nationality-based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America, one of its
three central values -- e pluribus Unum, "from many, one." And this school will
be guided by America's values. This includes all after-school clubs. I will not
authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes
race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in
vogue in a society divided by political correctness.

Your clubs will be
based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other physically
defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism -- an unhealthy
preoccupation with the self -- while the purpose of education is to get you to
think beyond yourself. So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders
and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak,
carpentry and more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being
interested in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that means
that little outside of yourself really interests you.

Second, I am
uninterested in whether English is your native language. My only interest in
terms of language is that you leave this school speaking and writing English as
fluently as possible. The English language has united America's citizens for
over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school. It is one of the
indispensable reasons this country of immigrants has always come to be one
country. And if you leave this school without excellent English language skills,
I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully
compete in the American job market. We will learn other languages here -- it is
deplorable that most Americans only speak English --but if you want classes
taught in your native language rather than in English, this is not your
school.

Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor, everything
in this school will reflect learning's elevated status. This means, among other
things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in our
society dress more formally for Hollywood events than for church or school.
These people have their priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal
dress code at this school.

Fourth, no obscene language will be tolerated
anywhere on this school's property -- whether in class, in the hallways or at
athletic events. If you can't speak without using the f-word, you can't speak.
By obscene language I mean the words banned by the Federal Communications
Commission, plus epithets such as "<snip>," even when used by one black student
to address another black, or "bitch," even when addressed by a girl to a
girlfriend. It is my intent that by the time you leave this school, you will be
among the few your age to instinctively distinguish between the elevated and the
degraded, the holy and the obscene.

Fifth, we will end all self-esteem
programs. In this school, self-esteem will be attained in only one way -- the
way people attained it until decided otherwise a generation ago -- by earning
it. One immediate consequence is that there will be one valedictorian, not
eight.

Sixth, and last, I am reorienting the school toward academics and
away from politics and propaganda. No more time will be devoted to scaring you
about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about sexual harassment or global
warming. No more semesters will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to
regard sexual relations as only or primarily a health issue... There will be no
more attempts to convince you that you are a victim because you are not white,
or not male, or not heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any
one of you graduates this school and does not consider him or herself
inordinately fortunate -- to be alive and to be an American.

Now, please
stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of our country. As
many of you do not know the words, your teachers will hand them out to you.

 

-----------

I'm sure the Dems will be along with the ACLU to claim discrimination as usual.

They can't stand not having people divided up into opposing groups and having a permanent underclass of victims.

I see our constantly "offended" member searched the internet to try to find a refutation of the speech because it "offends" her that certain groups of kids can't be victims and live a life of welfare and food stamps and pity like she did and does.

Her source, "SNOPES" says it was a radio DJ's letter but we don't really know that because SNOPES isn't a real authority on anything. SNOPES is a liberal husband and wife team known for slanting things to fit an agenda at times.

But I find that to be neither here nor there because whatever the source, I think we all agree, it is a speech that SHOULD be read to all schools and implemented.
