How else to explain the sudden occurrence of several mathematics teachers murdered by adolescents?

It began on a national scale in 1980, if not earlier. It takes time to plan and execute an "October surprise".

Ronald Wilson Reagan, President 666, was elected in that year because of Iranian intransigence in releasing the captives they had seized during the presidency of Jimmy Carter.

January 20, 1981, New York Times
Reagan Takes Oath as 40th President;
Promises an 'era of national renewal'
Minutes later, 52 U.S. Hostages in Iran
Fly to Freedom after 444 Day Ordeal

President 666 continued the mission he'd commenced as Governor of California, the dumbing down of America, making it difficult for middle class Americans to attain to university education, discouraging the teaching of civics,  the study of the great theoretical and practical aspects of citizenship, its rights and duties; the duties of citizens to each other as members of a political body and to the government, disrupting the activities of the Free Speech Movement.

....FBI records show agents used, quote, "dirty tricks to stifle dissent on the campus" and exposes new details about how—future U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s secret role as an FBI informant....
President 666 single-handedly created a whole generation of brain dumb zombies who didn't know -- or care -- how their governing bodies functioned, leaving their governance in the hands of the "elite", the wealthy ruling class and the corporatists.

A Nixon hack, Roger Ailes, carried on President 666's mission in the media:

Under Reagan, Republican appointees on the FCC abolished the fairness doctrine, the  obligation for broadcasters to air both sides of controversial issues. This led to an explosion of opinionated propagandists on the air waves relentlessly attacking “liberal” media. It continues to this day, degrading American public discourse.

A Nixon media operative, Roger Ailes, discussed starting a Republican-slanted news program with the president pre-Watergate. Later, Ailes invented Fox News for Rupert Murdoch. Fox is one of the prime shapers of the hyper-partisan political culture that has made the U.S. practically ungovernable.

Essentially, what Ailes created was an American Pravda, a  right wing propaganda machine to further the aims of right wing idealogues. And, he was wonderfully successful, laying the way for the election of the two Bushes until reality finally set in.

Unfortunately, along the way, Americans were carefully schooled to distrust science and mathematics -- thanks, wealthy climate change deniers! -- and a small very radical group was formed -- the Teabaggers.

And, frankly, I think the Teabaggers have been carefully schooling their kids to take out mathematics teachers. If another such teacher is taken out, my suspicions will be confirmed.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
