Parents Get Censored & Shushed Like Children at Meeting on Censorship

Have you bitten your fingernails today? Hopefully, you have saved room for when you watch this. If you’re a reasonable parent with a student in the public school system and notice a blatant violation – unfortunately this absurd behavior is something you might encounter from the district school board. That is, if they are intertwined with an agenda.

Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkreig reported the background on the Naples, Florida incident.

In order to give you some background on the issue, see the Letter to the Editor he wrote to the Naples Daily News on 1/28 to say what he was prevented from saying at the 1/20 School Board Workshop…
A quick synopsis of the letter involves parents who wished to speak out about premature curriculum approval that involved blatant historical fallacies (that you would probably detect immediately as propaganda) in text books. Seriously, that’s it. They wanted to point out the problems. For getting involved and wanting to rationally discuss the textbook problems (like the history book claiming the government can informally change the Constitution or the elimination of the U.S. on a world map) they were allegedly called “Nazi book burners” and “narrow-minded, racist Bible-thumpers.”

A recap of how the actual January Collier County School Board Workshop went in the video, shows that the parents never made it that far. They weren’t allowed to direct any comments to “approvers” or anyone involved or anyone who was using authority to silence the parents. This extended to absurd levels when it turned out that parents would be “shushed” like children for using any pronouns at all or referring to any human beings – as opposed to generalized, vague, watered-down topics. This wasn’t just a matter of keeping the peace – this was censorship via the same maturity of a schoolyard bully taunting “quit hittin’ yourself! quit hittin’ yourself!”

Also note the psychological effect of the parents having to look up to the chairwoman to make their statements….

Common Core’s Communist Core

“Common Core” is a standardized US national curriculum which leaves no doubt that the country has been subverted by a Cabalist satanic cult, i.e. Communism. The goal is to brainwash, dumb down and enslave the young generation.

The New American’s assessment of the proposed history standards describes the ideological bias of the proposed history curriculum this way:

Instead of focusing on actual U.S. history, for example, critics say the radical new Advanced Placement (AP) history curriculum represents hard-core Marxist indoctrination…the new scheme hypes and exaggerates real or imagined wrongs while presenting everything in a collectivist mold. Meanwhile, it downplays and ignores virtues and goodness in America’s historical development and its experiments with liberty and self-government.”

Language and math lessons propagandize environmental and political agendas that vested interests would like young minds to absorb. Think re-education in the best tradition of Mao.

The primary creators of the curriculum refer to the Common Core competencies as “cognitive and psychological aptitudes”. We’ve finally turned our educational system over to the psychologists lock, stock and barrel.

Parental rights are covertly pre-empted in ways such as eliciting descriptions of family roles and behavior from kindergartners, and teaching fifth graders that they should “Define sexual orientation as the romantic attraction of an individual to someone of the same gender or of a different gender. “The sexual education agenda would more appropriately be classified as pornography 101. One critic noted that there is no longer any “abnormal” sex… Every type of sexual activity is taught to be normal and acceptable, even pornography. By the eighth grade, youth should be taught about all forms of birth control, including the “morning after pill.”

Language lessons increasingly replace classic literature with short technical articles as students get older. By the senior year in high school, 70% of their reading material will be composed of political or scientific writings, pieces infused with the political agendas of the party in power or opinion pieces. Great literature is devalued and the student may only get to experience excerpts of the works.

Mathematics takes on a bizarre new structure….even parents will have trouble learning this new, unnecessarily complicated method even of doing simple addition. Many children are experiencing high levels of stress as they go through the lessons and the examinations. Manifestations … include vomiting, sobbing, involuntary urination, panic attacks and illness….

Arizona House Votes to Ban Common Core

An Arizona House committee voted yesterday in favor of legislation that would eliminate Common Core school standards, marking the Grand Canyon State’s first serious move toward doing away with the federally-imposed curriculum.

On Wednesday, a House education committee voted 5-2 in favor of House Bill 2190, a bill prohibiting the adoption and implementation of Common Core standards.

“Notwithstanding any other law, the State Board of Education may not adopt and the Department of Education may not implement the Common Core standards, the state’s College and Career Ready Standards, or any other standards or assessments that are aligned with standards or assessments proposed by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers,” the bill’s text reads. “Any actions that were previously taken to adopt or implement standards or assessments that conflict with this section are void on the effective date of this section.”

The Arizona State Board of Education adopted the Common Core federal standards in 2010, but as in other parts of the nation they’ve proven unpopular with parents and many conservatives who claim the curriculum is too costly and another way for the federal government to wrest control of education from the state.

Arizona State Superintendent Diane Douglas (R) recently ran on an anti-Common Core platform, and won, exemplifying the state’s discontent with the caustic standards.

Bills target gun rights education in schools

Jon Bailey spent a Friday afternoon over Christmas break taking his 13-year-old son, Connor, to shoot pistols at Allen Arms Indoor Range in Greenville.

He showed Connor how to load, aim and fire the weapon, but he also instructed him on what to do if he ever saw friends playing with a gun or found a gun lying around.

“He knows to get the heck out of the room and talk to adults,” Bailey said.

Bailey doesn’t call himself a gun fanatic. He wanted to demystify the idea of guns for his son.

But he does think more children should have knowledge of gun safety.

Who instructs children on the gun rights and safety has traditionally been left out of the state’s school systems, but bills pre-filed in both chambers of the South Carolina Legislature would bring gun rights squarely into focus in the classroom.

Whether schools are the right place to instruct students about firearms will be up for debate.

Zero-tolerance policies regarding guns at South Carolina schools has led to a backlash against citizens’ gun rights and a lack of knowledge on how to safely use firearms, Republican state legislators said as they prepared to open a new session in the state Legislature.

State social studies standards that instruct teachers to explain how the Constitution and Bill of Rights helps protect limited government. But schools don’t go far enough to explain gun rights, they said.

One bill — pre-filed in the state House — would create a Second Amendment Awareness Day to be held on Dec. 15 each year in all state schools, complete with a poster or essay contest centered on the theme “The Right To Bear Arms: One American Right Protecting All Others.”

Students — at every grade level — would receive at least three weeks of education on their gun rights based on a curriculum chosen by the state Department of Education and approved or recommended by the National Rifle Association.

“Zero-tolerance policies have squelched any discussion of the Second Amendment in schools,” said Rep. Alan Clemmons, R-Myrtle Beach.

By avoiding second amendment speech in schools, he said, “We are giving short shrift to the one amendment that protects all others.”

Education programming 101: destroy logic

Once upon a time, in medieval universities, new students enrolled in the Trivium. It was the foundation curriculum. It was required. Its parts were: grammar, logic, and rhetoric.

Grammar: the interior construction of language.

Logic: the valid and invalid connections in the course of a formal argument; the method of proper reasoning; the deductive links in a chain, at the end of which appears a conclusion.

Rhetoric: oral and written presentation; the use of language to make a case; the capacity to persuade, even in the face of counter-argument.

Today, the subject matter of the Trivium is not only downplayed. It has been shattered.

When the intensive handling of ideas is seen as a laughable goal for education, indoctrination is plugged in as the only alternative.

The mind of the student shifts from being an active force to being a container.

The destruction of logic perverts rational thought at its core and inserts ideology masked as insight.

The actual meaning of an idea is firmly placed on the back burner. Instead? Praise or attack the people who forward ideas.

This strategy has gained great prominence.

“The revered Founders of the Republic? Shysters, con men, slaveholders, monopolists who saw rebellion from England as the way to win greater power for themselves, at the expense of everyone else living on American soil.”

Therefore, the argument continues, and this is crucial, the Founders’ IDEAS, as expressed in the Declaration and the Constitution, were rotten to the core. The ideas can be dismissed out of hand as coming from “a bad source.”
