An article on The Gateway Pundit for May 28th provided some information worth noting on what goes on in public schools and who is doing some of it. If you’ve had problems with Target over their “gay” pride merchandise you may find that is only the tip of the iceberg. The Gateway Pundit article tells us: “Retail giant Target has partnered with GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network) for years… GLSEN is a group that provides sexually explicit books to schools, pushes gender identity throughout public school curricula, and advocates policies that keep parents unaware of their child’s in-school gender transition… It was Barack Obama who first pushed sex education to kindergartners back in 2007 – he even pushed sex education to kiddies legislation… the media mostly hid this from the American public.” Sounds like King Barack the first really did have a plan to “fundamentally transform the United States” but he didn’t want the public to grasp just what it was!
For parents who think this kind of thing could never happen in “their” local public school, let me remind you that, without the complicity of the teachers unions this educational fertilizer could never have gotten off the ground.
People don’t realize that many teachers unions had socialist beginnings that never really died out. I did an article on Albert Shanker’s socialist background that is still up on MyDixie.org from 4/25/2022. For those who may not know or recall who Shanker is, he is the founder of the American Federation of Teachers union. According to Archieve.Newpol.org, “The AFT’s true if unacknowledged precursor is the Teachers Union (TU) originally an AFL body, led by Communist regulars, Lovestonites, Trotskyists, socialists and other left-wingers in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago and elsewhere encompassing college instructors, and public school teachers. During the dynamic later 1930s the TU influence was disproportionately New Yorkish, as well as Jewish…The TU, for all its weaknesses, (most of all a weakness toward things Russian) had often exemplified the democratic impulses of the teachers.” You have to understand they are not using the term “democratic” they way most Americans understand it.
There was an article by Ron Paul on LewRockwell.com on May 30th that observed:
“The most recent release from the federally funded Nation’s Report Card shows that 40 percent of 8th graders lack even a basic understanding of US history while only 14 percent are proficient or advanced in history…Even scarier is the fact that many government schools have replaced history and civics with critical race theory, transgender ideologies, and other forms of cultural Marxism…The good news in all this madness is that it is encouraging more parents to look into alternatives to government schools such as homeschooling.”
Ron Paul has a homeschool program at http://www.ronpaulcurriculum.com/. The John Birch Society also has a homeschool program, the Freedom Project Academy, which is fully accredited classical education for students from kindergarten through high school. The parent organization, American Opinion Foundation, has “future aspirations to deliver Classical Education at the university level in its own brick and mortar school…”
These and other Christian schools offer the only real hope for the future of America. As I stated recently, the cultural fertilizer being dished up to students in public schools has been planned this way. These indoctrination centers we still insist on calling schools will not be reformed and the exercises to so so are planned exercises in futility. The public school educrats want you to waste your time, effort, and finances trying to “reform” a public school system that is resistant to any meaningful change. They know it will never happen and one of their chief tasks is to make sure you don’t figure that out.
They’ve spent 150 years working to get public schools where they are now, with all the socialism and trans-trash, and they ain’t about to retreat! They are more than willing for you to bang your head against the wall working for reforms they know will never happen! Maybe if you get frustrated enough you will just give up and let them have their way with your kids! The only way to defeat them and their leftist agenda for your family is to take your kids out of their indoctrination centers and pursue other alternatives–and you need to be discerning as to what those alternatives are.
The public schools were always beyond repair – even 100 years ago! In this apostate era they are doing what they were always intended to do – make socialist perverts out of your kids using your property tax money to do it. You have to ask yourself, how willing are you to let them keep doing this, because they fully intend to keep doing it! They don’t have those “trans closets” in some public schools for nothing! It’s one way the leftists can take this country over with no foreign armies – and the Biden Regime is all in for this agenda – just like the Obama Regime was!
