Violence at Edina High School
When a high school slides downhill from pre-eminence to mediocrity, one symptom is violence. A school that no longer stands for high standards has a harder time maintaining control over its more unruly students. Such violence may be racial in nature, but that shouldn’t be a surprise in a school where students have been taught from kindergarten that the most important thing about them is the color of their skin, and that members of some races are relentlessly oppressed in 21st century America–even the ones privileged enough to attend, for example, Edina High School. A school whose highest purpose is stimulating racial conflict can hardly pretend to be shocked when racial conflict turns to violence.
Yesterday one or more fights broke out at Edina High School. One was documented on video–it wasn’t so much a fight as a criminal assault–while the others (some say there were three) are perhaps merely rumors. This is the one we know about:
I grew up in a better time and place, South Dakota in the 1950s and 1960s. We didn’t have to struggle with far-left administrators and teachers, we weren’t inculcated with leftist and racist doctrines, and we never had fights in the halls. The Edina public schools, unfortunately, are following a different path. The results have not been happy.
