Category Archives: Village of the Damned
Something is terribly wrong with the Education ‘Village‘ of America – the complete breakdown of America’s government controlled education system through indoctrination and Socialism. Our children have become truly ‘damned‘ and will have little chance to truly succeed in this nation – UNLESS – the system can be overturned. Sorry Hillary, but the Village thing hasn’t worked so well – for the children of America. Welcome to the ‘Village‘ – where first we learn, and then we teach!
This category was so-named because of then First Lady, Hillary Clinton’s comment, “It takes a village to raise a child.” In addition to my feelings that our children are truly ‘damned‘ as long as this system is allowed to continue.
The ‘Village‘ is the place that I would not wish to be in today. I was privileged to participate in one of the last non-socialist school systems. Hell – I don’t know – maybe it had already begun, but I had great teachers. At 71 years of age – I can still picture and name over 90% of those whose care I was placed into. What we present here includes a range of commentary by a wide range of authors, which may well not fit into other designated categories. So here we provide, well – you know – “a little of this and a little of that!“
As the esteemed Dr. Rosemary Stein, M.D. has stated; The only way socialism has any chance in America is for the education system to push it in schools. Remember, the father of their modern education ‘Elite’ beliefs is John Dewey. Dewey was a communist, failed teacher who pushed what are now clearly failed education theories. Here is the quote of the day. “This militant crowd is comprised of uninformed and misinformed people looking at themselves as unfortunate, underpaid, underappreciated victims of capitalism, overwhelmed with jealousy that there are people who are everything they are not.”You are going to have to take ownership over the education of your children ~ Rosemary Stein, MD
In the words of Jaime Escalalante ~ “I tell my students, you do not enter the future – you create the future. The future is achieved through hard work.”
Let us guide our children towards creation – of the future. The time is past due for we the people to take back the responsibility of who raises and who teaches OUR children.. and with YOUR help, and the words of our contributors, we will do our best to bring your children to the world which they deserve to live in. ~ Jeffrey Bennett, Kettle Moraine Publications
“This particular American society” is one that is driven, molded and manipulated by Progressive ideologies that have been embedded in all of our institutions, public and private, over the last one hundred years or more.
Unfortunately, the current self-perpetuating system in America and even in most Westernized countries, is Progressivism, which is just another form of collective socialism. It is a flawed, bankrupt system that emphasizes the collective and de-emphasizes the individual, the former being the very antithesis of the foundation of American freedom. Becoming an educator is a process of being indoctrinated in this current self-perpetuating system. Continue reading →
Questions dealt with values of slaves versus white people
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (WBTV) – The Kannapolis City School System has apologized to a parent after a child was given a homework assignment that the system says was inappropriate.
The parent posted the assignment on social media. It was given out by a teacher at Kannapolis Middle School. A section on the assignment asked students to compare the values of slaves with white people. Continue reading →
Caution: The following article contains a video that may be deeply disturbing to some viewers.
If we’ve learned anything from years of sharing the truth about the leftist agenda, it’s that there is no bottom floor. Every time we think we’ve uncovered the sickest depths of depravity, something more vile and heinous soon proves us wrong. Continue reading →
I recently read an article by Michael Snyder of The End of The American Dream blog, which grabbed my attention because I have recently done a few articles on public education for my Revised History blog spot. All things considered, I felt it was about time to do another one for The Copperhead Chronicle blog, and what more important issue to do one on than what passes for education in this country. Many may feel I have been beating a dead horse regarding the education issue, but Mr. Snyder’s article should show folks that this is one horse that needs to be beaten, and it will also show that I am not the only one that feels this way.

… so You Bigoted Parents Just Shut Up And Sit Down!
The title of this article is a sentiment often expressed by those who are part of the public education Establishment. They look down their overly-educated noses at those deplorable parents and feel their agenda for the kids entrusted to their tender mercies is much more important than the wishes and desires of the parents. After all, they are the change agents, put in place to change the morals and attitudes of students into something their parents will no longer even recognize.
A glaring example of this change agent attitude in living color has recently taken place at a high school in or near Conroe, Texas. I would have expected something like this in New York, Illinois, or Commiefornia – but in Texas of all places. Continue reading →
January 24, 2018 ~ The Thomas More Law Center (“TMLC”), a national nonprofit public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, filed a federal lawsuit yesterday evening in the New Jersey District Court against several officials and teachers of the Chatham Middle School and the School District of the Chathams, located in New Jersey.

According to the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s (VOC) fourth “Annual Report on US Attitudes Toward Socialism, Communism, and Collectivism,” today’s youth is quite fond of political-economic systems that have resulted in more than 100 million deaths over the past century. At the same time, these misguided youths are increasingly hostile toward the political-economic system that has lifted countless millions more out of abject poverty over the same period.

What a normal human being often fails to see in light of everyday struggles and strife, of political upheaval, of commitment to false national pride, is the unbelievable majesty of life. In order to discover this singularly unique beauty, love must be present, but love alone cannot sustain the tragedy of life that is the division consuming the human mind, body, and spirit today. Intelligent thought is necessary. The destruction of learning, with the inadequate replacement of commonality, has bred by design a society steeped in an ignorance of life, and an unnatural contempt for others. This intentional eradication of individual intellect brought with it a hostile prejudice toward the sanctity of our souls, and left emptiness in its place. Continue reading →
Whether something is education or indoctrination seems to be a matter of where you stand on its content. I have heard C.S. Lewis’ beloved classic The Chronicles of Narnia accused of indoctrinating children with Christianity. (Enter the Poison being fed our children. ~ Ed.)
My understanding is that indoctrination teaches a person or group to accept a set of beliefs uncritically.
Now, I believe my preschool children, aged 3 and 5, are being indoctrinated at their childcare center by a text espousing a set of values vastly different from those Lewis held. It’s title is, We Are All Equal. Continue reading →
Just today, someone sent me a copy of an article about “Leftist Racial Literacy Curriculum” in elementary schools. The article was originally posted on November 12th and was written by Marina Medvin. While Ms. Medvin noted lots of problems with the leftist slant in school curriculum, it was evident that she had not read a lot of history in this area. I do not say that to belittle her efforts in any way, but only to point out that there is lots of history she has not been taught–not that this is her fault. And she pointed out things parents need to be aware of.
She pointed out, accurately, that: “Elementary schools teach children at the most fragile and impressionable ages. Ages six to twelve–children are innocent, persuadable, malleable. For the proper care of our children, elementary schools must be held to the highest standards of care and objectivity. But what happens to these children when leftist politics invade and alter their social studies curriculum to teach our kids that America is a country of hate, inequity, and oppression? What happens when children no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance or celebrate Veteran’s Day, but instead regurgitate the words ‘Racism is a primary institution of the United States’ and celebrate ‘Indigenous Peoples Day?’ What happens to our future? Do we lose America as we know it? Do elementary schools fail our children?” Continue reading →
I have written about this before, but repetition does no harm to the truth, in fact, it should reinforce it. The Frankfurt School, originally from Frankfurt, Germany, was the birthplace of what we refer to as cultural Marxism, a brand of Marxism that took that plague upon humanity to a whole new level.
An article from August 12, 2016 on Zero Hedge noted some of this. It stated: “In 1930, the school changed course under new director Max Horkheimer. The team began mixing the ideas of Sigmund Freud with those of Marx, and cultural Marxism was born. In classical Marxism, the workers of the world were oppressed by the ruling classes. The new theory was that everyone in society was psychologically oppressed by the institutions of Western culture. The school concluded that this new focus would need new vanguards to spur the change. The workers were not able to rise up on their own.” Continue reading →
During my last year in high school, all seniors were required to write a speech about the topic of their choice and present this speech to the student body and faculty. My essay, titled “Division”, dealt with how identity politics ruined the last few years at the high school that I attended. It was summarized well here.
In the weeks following the presentation of my speech, I remember being asked what led me to choose the topic, a topic of which could very likely lead to ridicule and even hostility from those listening. What defining moments compelled me to challenge the way in which I was being taught? Also, did I receive any backlash from my essay? Continue reading →
I have experienced this miseducation first-hand. Long story short, while teaching U.S. History, World History, Economics, and American Government for five (long) years to high school students in the Chicago suburbs and in Bluffton, South Carolina, I was absolutely shocked and dismayed.

Chapter I: Who Gets to Teach Us Our History – and do they have an agenda?
Those among us that follow history long ago came to the conclusion that much of what we were taught as “history” really wasn’t. Much of it was propaganda parading as history. Much of it ended up compromising the truth in order to present to us a world view that was neither historical or accurate and which was intended to lead us down a historical garden path.
It is impossible for us in our day to have a correct historical world view if what we have been taught as history turns out to be inaccurate – and the inaccuracy often turns out to be on purpose. Unknowing inaccuracy can be excused. Willful inaccuracy is treason to the truths of history. Continue reading →
