The Deadly Fruit Of Anti-God Education: Brutal Violence Rises To ‘Crisis’ Levels

Alex Newman

Teachers are under attack — literally. Violent and indoctrinated students in government schools across the United States and beyond are increasingly beating not just each other, but even their teachers, according to a flurry of nationwide reports based on a survey of teachers that found startling levels of violence against educators. 

According to the survey of over 8,000 teachers in 34 states, over 70 percent reported having been subjected to physical violence by a student. Over half of the respondents said they were attacked more than once or even “many times,” various Cox Media-owned outlets reported about the findings.   

The escalating violence is part of a trend that is causing an exodus of teachers and has alarmed policymakers and parents. Even among those who have not been violently attacked — yet — “verbal abuse” has been encountered by virtually all of the respondents in the survey.  

Among those responding to the survey, more than two thirds said the violence has caused them to consider leaving education. The “crisis,” as experts are calling it, has become so severe that it is now being discussed in the halls of Congress and in state legislatures across the United States.  

The attacks have included from savage beatings such as one at a high-school in Ligonier Valley, Pennsylvania, that resulted in a broken jaw and required multiple surgeries. WPXI Channel 11 reported on an arrest in another Pennsylvania school after a student punched, choked, threw on the ground and assaulted four teachers in one incident.   

One teacher in the Carolinas, who asked not to be named, told WSOC TV that she simply could not take it anymore and had to flee. “I would have loved to continue teaching for another three, five years, but due to the behaviors and the lack of support, and the safety issues, I didn’t feel safe,” she said. 

“I’ve been kicked, I’ve been pinched. Students have tried to bite me, I’ve had bruises on my legs from that,” the teacher added, suggesting that the violence against teachers was becoming routine. “A student threatened to throw a chair at me. Another colleague was shoved and punched in the stomach.” 

What finally pushed her over the edge was a second-grade student threatening to shoot teachers and students, only to come to school a few weeks later with a realistic toy gun. Making matters worse, she said, school administrators did not take the threats seriously, with the child not even being suspended as a result. 

Similar news is coming out of Canada and the United Kingdom. According to a survey of teachers in Ontario’s Waterloo region, almost all reported experiencing “workplace violence.” According to teachers’ association chief Patrick Etmanski, the violent attacks have become a daily occurrence for many of the members.  

“We’re talking about physical violence,” he was quoted as saying by tax-funded broadcaster CBC. “We’re talking about kids throwing things. We’re talking about punching, hitting, kicking, biting, spitting, swearing. We’re talking about the whole gamut of violence from kids who are as young as four all the way up to our kids who are in Grade 12.” 

Educational Assistants Association of WRDSB President Colleen Dietrich Sisson echoed those concerns. “It’s absolutely out of this world how many people are getting hurt,” she said, pointing to a “mass exodus” of teachers. “We started our school year off with three concussions right out of the gate in September. And it’s just gotten worse.” 

According to Dr. Susan McMahon, who led an American Psychological Association task force investigating the growing violence against teachers, the schools are perhaps just a “microcosm” of the “larger society.” “I think it’s certainly a crisis in our country,” she was quoted as saying in media reports.  

The epidemic of violence in government schools is fueling calls for more “mental health” programs — a scheme to enrich Big Pharma by shoveling tax money into its coffers by putting more and more children on dangerous and ineffective psychotropic drugs. Many of the commonly used drugs feature “side effects” including suicidal and homicidal ideation.  

But what the students really need is not more tax-funded drugs or “mental health” surveys prying into their private lives and families. In fact, such schemes would be the equivalent of pouring jet fuel on the dumpster fire that is “public education.” Rather, the children need an education that is based on transcendent truth.   

Some of the violence facing teachers across the West is undoubtedly a result of mass immigration from violent societies. And some is a result of dangerous drugs forced on children under the guise of “mental health.” Broken families with children growing up in fatherless homes with no discipline certainly contributes, too.

But ultimately, the true source of the escalating terror facing teachers, children, and society is the diabolical worldview masquerading as “education” imposed on children. When children are brainwashed to believe there is no God and life is meaningless, it produces deadly fruit — the very plague now destroying not just children, but civilization itself.

Franklin Graham Establishes ‘Billy Graham Defense Fund’ To Protect Gospel Outreach In The UK

"We’re going to use these funds that came from this battle against cancel culture to help other Christians who may be threatened into silence," he announced. "This is a victory, not just for us, but for all Christians and churches across the UK."

Hamas Led The Charge On October 7th, But Islam Motivated Hamas

The Hamas attack does not reflect the actions of most Muslims, but it does reflect the Quran. All ideas are not equal. Adolf Hitler’s ideas were not as noble as those of Florence Nightingale. And Islam is not just another version of Christianity. They are as different as black and white, good and evil.
