“THE AMERICANS ARE COMING”
Where has the country that I grew up in disappeared to? I was born and raised in the liberal bastion of California, but as a kid growing up I lived in rural and conservative areas. Even living in Fresno from the age of 8, the San Joaquin Valley was an agricultural area and I was taught conservative values, not just at home, but at school where we said the pledge of allegiance every single morning and talking about God and Jesus were not taboo subjects. In the ninth grade, half the school year was learning about the U.S. Constitution, and you had to pass a test or you did not advance on to the tenth grade.
So, let me talk about schools in this first segment. With few exceptions, our schools have become centers for indoctrination for socialism, moral decay, revisionist history, dumbing down (Common Core in particular), a platform for transgenderism starting with five year olds, and that sex and abortions are just fine and the schools will help keep those “secrets” from the parents. And how is that working out for our children?
If it is true that our children are the future of America, what does that mean for our country? When our children cannot get a handle on reading, writing and math in school because these subjects are not considered relevant, it is no wonder kids that work at McDonald’s cannot make change, texting by using code and abbreviated words are the only means of communication, and cursive writing in not even taught anymore. It does not even matter if a student can read or not, they are passed onto the next grade.
Instead, our kids are brain-washed that they must “save the environment” through the environmentally radical green agenda and are “taught” to correct their parents when Mom and Dad do not follow the agenda they are being taught. And how insane was it when one 13 year old down in New Mexico was handcuffed and forcibly removed from a classroom just because he burped in class?
A multitude of politicians, school district boards of education and teachers constantly inject as much propaganda as possible into our children’s classrooms. Instead of teaching our kids how to think, they are bullied by being told what they MUST think. Our kids are also being trained to be pawns in a Marxist state and that they must do as they are told by the government. In our schools today, nearly everything they do is watched, monitored, recorded and tracked. Forget about independent thought and free expression as these attributes are not only discouraged but are often dealt with harshly.
When I was in elementary school, kids that were sent to the principal’s office were in a whole lot of trouble, the parents were called by the school, and Heaven help the kid when he got home. Now, if kids get “out of line”, instead of being sent to the principal’s office they are often handcuffed, arrested and taken to the police station. In addition, law enforcement authorities are using weapons such as pepper spray and tazers against young students in our public schools more than ever before.
In all 50 U.S. states, federally-mandated databases have been or are being constructed that will track the behavior as well as the performance of all public school students in America throughout their entire school careers. According to an article in the New York Post, the Obama administration wants to use the information that is gathered for a wide array of nefarious purposes…Can you say “police state?”
The administration wants this data to include much more than name, address and test scores. According to the National Data Collection Model, the government should collect information on health-care history, family income and family voting status. In its view, public schools offer a golden opportunity to mine reams of data from a captive audience.
Many of the sex education classes in public schools have totally gotten out of control and have, in my opinion, totally crossed the line. Instead of just educating children about sex, many sex education courses are all about indoctrination of children when it comes to sex which now includes transgenderism, sexual identity, pornography, LGBT, abortions as well as other inappropriate information for youngsters.
Yet when a little girl kissed a boy at one Florida elementary, it was considered to be a “possible sex crime” and the police were called out. And then there was the 9 year old boy at Brookside Elementary in Gastonia, NC, who was suspended for two days when a substitute teacher heard the boy tell another student that a teacher was cute. I call this politically correct insanity.
Our children in U.S. public schools are not learning about the principles of freedom, liberty, self-motivation, self-sufficiency, or respect for others much less for themselves. Instead of being taught how to be strong individuals, they are taught that if you cannot make it on your own, the government will be there to take care of you.
So what can we do as parents, grandparents and even great grandparents do about this horrific system? The solution is quite simple but may cause the need for sacrifice. Take your children out of the debilitating, demoralizing, insane public school system! Options are home schooling, Christian schools, or private schools. Can’t afford to do that? Work on your state legislatures to provide school vouchers. There is a lot of information online regarding home schooling as well as home school co-ops.
Get control of what your kids are learning. After all, what can be more important that our children’s future destinies? Can’t do that where you live? Then find your way to the American Redoubt. My husband and I are very blessed to have found our way to Boundary County in north Idaho.
If we don’t care, we will get the country that we have helped create, are fostering and that we deserve.
Take heart… “THE AMERICANS ARE COMING!” Stay tuned for Part 2…
