STUDENT INDOCTRINATION – UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL

Thursday, May 27th, 2021

 

One of our readers has shared this information from a school that their child attends.  This is pure indoctrination and to think this all began  with prayers that were not allowed in schools back in the 1960’s.  The Far Left Marxists have been wildly successful in influencing  how our children are being taught. Is it any wonder that all this indoctrination has been happening while the math and science core scores of our children have been falling. 
I have taken the liberty to delete information about which school this is and where it is located.   Nancy    

Dear 7th and 8th Grade Families,

This year, our 7th and 8th grade students have worked hard, online and in person, to explore their own racial identities, learn more about how systemic racism is embedded into America’s past, and interrogate how racism shows up in our communities in the present day. Now, it is time to turn our eyes toward the future.

Next week, via Zoom, students will have the chance to convene in order to discuss how we can make change in the community. Students will discuss action-oriented questions in breakout spaces with the goal of increasing students’ collective activism and cultivating hope for the future.

Connections to our classes:

Throughout 7th and 8th grade students have been studying various texts that dive into the themes of systemic racism, activism, and social justice. Even more so than in a traditional school year, students have had the opportunity to learn separately, which has brought many of our students, as the school’s leaders, to the question: what’s next? Many have asked, “how can we use our power as students to actually make change happen?” Ideas and transformative change often arise in community – which is the purpose of “The Convening”. This will be a space where students can meet to reflect, discuss, and move forward social justice and change within our community.

CRITICAL RACE THEORY: WHAT IT IS AND HOW TO FIGHT IT

Sunday, May 9th, 2021

 

This is an excellent speech given at Hillsdale College explaining how destructive the Critical Race Theory is to our country.  Please share with your contacts.  Nancy

Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It

March 2021
By   Christopher F. Rufo
Founder and Director, Battlefront
Christopher F. Rufo is founder and director of Battlefront, a public policy research center. He is a graduate of Georgetown University and a former Lincoln Fellow at the Claremont Institute for the Study of Statesmanship and Political Philosophy. As executive director at the Documentary Foundation, he has directed four films for PBS, including most recently America Lost, which explores life in Youngstown, Ohio, Memphis, Tennessee, and Stockton, California. He is also a contributing editor of City Journal, where he covers topics including critical race theory, homelessness, addiction, and crime.

The following is adapted from a lecture delivered at Hillsdale College on March 30, 2021.

Critical race theory is fast becoming America’s new institutional orthodoxy. Yet most Americans have never heard of it—and of those who have, many don’t understand it. It’s time for this to change. We need to know what it is so we can know how to fight it.

In explaining critical race theory, it helps to begin with a brief history of Marxism. Originally, the Marxist Left built its political program on the theory of class conflict. Marx believed that the primary characteristic of industrial societies was the imbalance of power between capitalists and workers. The solution to that imbalance, according to Marx, was revolution: the workers would eventually gain consciousness of their plight, seize the means of production, overthrow the capitalist class, and usher in a new socialist society.

During the 20th century, a number of regimes underwent Marxist-style revolutions, and each ended in disaster. Socialist governments in the Soviet Union, China, Cambodia, Cuba, and elsewhere racked up a body count of nearly 100 million of their own people. They are remembered for their gulags, show trials, executions, and mass starvations. In practice, Marx’s ideas unleashed man’s darkest brutalities.

By the mid-1960s, Marxist intellectuals in the West had begun to acknowledge these failures. They recoiled at revelations of Soviet atrocities and came to realize that workers’ revolutions would never occur in Western Europe or the United States, where there were large middle classes and rapidly improving standards of living. Americans in particular had never developed a sense of class consciousness or class division. Most Americans believed in the American dream—the idea that they could transcend their origins through education, hard work, and good citizenship.

But rather than abandon their Leftist political project, Marxist scholars in the West simply adapted their revolutionary theory to the social and racial unrest of the 1960s. Abandoning Marx’s economic dialectic of capitalists and workers, they substituted race for class and sought to create a revolutionary coalition of the dispossessed based on racial and ethnic categories.

CULTURE ROT – A 7TH GRADE READING ASSIGNMENT

Monday, February 22nd, 2021

 

We have all become  aware  that many schools are not introducing their students to classic literature as was once the norm.  Below, you will find information that was sent to one of our readers for their 7th grade child (13 year old)  to read as a school assignment. The book – “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas has been acclaimed and is being made into a movie and is the reading and discussion assignment for a 7th grade class. This book was inspired by  the Black Lives Matter movement and discusses police brutality, promoting  activism, and of course, white supremacy and  systemic racism.  In short, this is how students are being indoctrinated by our schools.  Of course, the school also did not miss the opportunity of mentioning Donald Trump and his coded messages through the use of language.  We need to be aware of what our  children and grand children are being taught and I personally find this very disturbing.    Nancy

SECULAR DEMOCRATS OF AMERICA PRESSURING BIDEN

Tuesday, December 15th, 2020

 

I was not aware of this group until hearing this secular Democrat  group discussed on One America News.   More attention needs to be paid to what this group is pressuring Biden to do should Biden actually become president. Please share with your contacts.   Nancy  

Citing rise of ‘Christian nationalism,’ Secular Democrats unveil sweeping recommendations for Biden

Authors suggested Biden use ‘E Pluribus Unum’ — Latin for ‘out of many, one’ — instead of ‘In God We Trust’ and repeal the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

By Jack Jenkins   November 30, 2020

WASHINGTON (RNS) — A Democratic group dedicated to representing secular values unveiled a slate of recommendations for President-elect Joe Biden’s incoming administration on Monday (Nov. 30), outlining a sweeping agenda designed to roll back many of President Trump’s actions involving religion and to “restore a vision of constitutional secularism.”

The 28-page document, crafted by the Secular Democrats of America PAC, is being presented to the incoming administration by Democratic Representatives Jamie Raskin and Jared Huffman — both co-chairs of the Congressional Freethought Caucus.

The SDA’s agenda offers a wide range of policy recommendations to push back against the so-called “Christian nationalist movement,” which the the group describes as an “extraordinarily well-funded and well-organized” phenomenon whose “extreme and sectarian agenda (was) on constant display under the Trump-Pence administration.”

The group offered several recommendations to help “reframe” concepts of patriotism in ways that are more inclusive. Among them were encouraging politicians to avoid terms like “God and country”; promoting non-theistic and humanistic chaplains in the military; including nonreligious representatives at interfaith gatherings; and suggesting the use of the country’s onetime unofficial motto “E Pluribus Unum” — Latin for “out of many, one” — instead of the motto adopted in 1956, “In God We Trust,” which the the group argues excludes nontheists and polytheists.

TRUMP SIGNS ‘PATRIOTIC EDUCATION’ ORDER ON EVE OF ELECTION

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020

 

One more reason why we love President Trump !    Nancy

Trump signs order to push ‘patriotic education’ on eve of election

By Steven Nelson   November 2, 2020

President Trump on Monday signed an executive order establishing a federal 1776 Commission to promote “patriotic education.”

Trump tweeted on the eve of Election Day: “Just signed an order to establish the 1776 Commission. We will stop the radical indoctrination of our students, and restore PATRIOTIC EDUCATION to our schools!”

The president touted the order moments later at a campaign rally in Scranton, Pa., saying, “I just signed that executive order to teach your students pro-American values.”

Trump announced the idea in September in response to the removal of statues of colonial and revolutionary figures during national anti-police brutality and anti-racism protests linked to the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police.

The actual order instructs Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to set up the commission within 120 days. It’s up to 20 presidentially appointed members will serve for two years. Ex-officio seats go to the secretaries of education, state, interior, defense and housing and urban development.

The order allows agencies to “promote patriotic education” with federal resources.
