The left’s tactics of using well-funded nonprofits and non-Government Organizations (NGOs) to go around voters and get what they want should be evident to everyone at this point.
Critical Race Theory is a philosophy that seeks to burden White Americans with the historical grievances of many third world social justice movements, and it has invaded Americans’ minds recently because it is seeping into teaching materials, mysteriously, and being used as a part of a radical leftist transformation of public education- and other public institutions.
Taking advantage of the Pandemic when school children were at home and parents were occupied teaching them, the furthest left activists in the schools took that opportunity to devise a plan to restructure the way children learn; they were motivated by transforming education with Critical Race Theory concepts.
KEY POINT: Critical Race Theory-itself- really isn’t that new, and the left admits it is Marxist ideology.
With No Child Left Behind, Race to the Top, and Common Core, the Federal Government controls education far more than anyone will admit because they can “flood the zone” with cash incentives, grants, and incentives to teachers, whenever they want to change something. So depending on who holds the purse strings is the direction that education goes, and parents can’t really do much about it.
Many people who are upset about seeing teacher’s trainings, that show a new way of teaching which use Marxist tactics don’t really understand what to do to make it stop, and some activists and concerned parents are being misdirected by factions on the left and the on the right. As a result, things feel very chaotic and disorganized. It is difficult for people to understand how we got here as a free nation.
While people were busy in 2020 with a Pandemic, the Federal Government adopted the 1619 project as new standards for a new History and Civics Education Bill, which will promote racism against White America.
Bottom line: The Federal Government has money, and they are going to transform America, remember? The left has been very open about what they were planning on doing. In fact, since President Ronald Regan, the only President who wasn’t trying to transform American values and institutions was Donald J. Trump. How many parents voted for him and his 2020-1776 Commission that would have been the perfect counterbalance to the left’s 1619 project?
Going down a rabbit hole:
Parents are up against tens of thousands of nonprofits, nongovernment organizations, and grassroots marketing platforms that are pushing Critical Race Theory. They are making free materials to give to schools, knowing the keywords are “free”, and fully aware of the way to get in the door and influence children to their point of view.
Nothing of substance will change until the system that gave those non government organizations access is dismantled.
Consider Tolerance.org ,one of the thousands of well-funded non-profits armed with brilliant messaging, branding, and PR campaigns that are now supplying public schools with free teaching materials to promote ideals that are foreign to most American parents about sexuality, gender, and racism.
“We know white supremacy is woven into the fabric of American culture and society. But, unfortunately, it’s also woven into our education system. In the Spring 2021 issue of Teaching Tolerance magazine, we trace some of the threads of white supremacy through classrooms and schools—and how students, educators, and others are working to break those threads. “
“Public schools have a legal obligation to enroll and support immigrant students and English language learners. New resources from the SPLC help advocates work with families to ensure schools are meeting this responsibility.”
THE TRICKLE IS NOW AN OCEAN THAT HAS A RIPTIDE
Now what we are seeing with the rise of Democrat Joe Biden is the trickle of anti-White propaganda that was once only whispered about in social justice circles, which has turned into a deep ocean.
Parents now see the Marxist bias if they hadn’t seen it before. Of course, the left is biased against Americans; that is what Marxism is. They have been for a very long time; however, now, they have control over everything they don’t even try to hide it. They have no shame, not even when they are going after school-aged children, and confusing them about their gender.
And of course, there is a foreign influence and large amounts of foreign money in American schools paying for those nonprofits, and competition being what it is. Of course, there is a movement to marginalize American students and elevate foreign students. Why do you think immigrants have been flooding here?
Consider what a resource American public education and the public school buildings loaded up with teachers, equipment, and resources, all for free and supported by taxpayers, is worth from the point of view of people from poor third worlds.
I KNEW ABOUT THIS 20 YEARS AGO AND DECIDED TO HOMESCHOOL
My kids are White with an Irish name, so I sensed that the only way to give them a fighting chance was to teach them by myself.
To investigate schools, I was a part of a “Strategic Planning Session” for a public school in Erie, PA, for one year, from 1998- 1999. What I learned about schools during that period made me go from reluctant Homeschooler to eager Homeschooler without hesitation.
After what I learned at the time, there was no way possible I could hand over my child and his future, and any future children, to the leftist borg I saw lining up to take control of public education.
I learned about how the left would use social justice nonprofits to force their way into schools, and I knew that leftists in Government would let it happen and that most parents would not be bothered enough to fight it. So I opted out.
TRANSFORMED: SCHOOLS ARE ABOUT CULTURAL COMPETENCIES- NOT WORK SKILLS OR JOB TRAINING
The biggest takeaway from that time was knowing what was about to unfold with social justice groups being allowed to produce the very teaching materials that would harm my kids.
I figured out that the Federal Government would mandate Marxist theory in the name of filling a list of competencies that was determined by some faraway body of people, who did not resemble anything parents would want to be.
Think about how the 1619 project gave Biden Cover to reroute billions of dollars into a new system that people hate and which they are helpless to stop. I know where it is headed.
WHITE AMERICAN STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE AN EDUCATION BY BEING FORCED TO AFFIRM RELIGIONS, CREEDS, AND HISTORIC BURDENS OF ALL OTHER PEOPLE OF THE WORLD- TO KEEP THEM NON COMPETITIVE AND FROM PRODUCING GOOD WORK
Note that the students will be forced to affirm concepts that are not necessarily American if they want to get a graduation degree to move on in their lives.
On the final day of my one-year commitment to the school process in 1999, so many years ago, I learned during a mock school board meeting that children would be graded upon a curriculum loaded with what was called competencies. “Competencies” was the gateway into the classroom for anyone who knew about it and a mystery to those who weren’t on the left.
I learned at that mock school board meeting in 1999 that children in the future would learn to be competent in “Demonstrating a tolerance to homosexuality.” That was the number one, most important skill as presented by the mock social justice group.
We were told by the school board that as long as if was free, the answer was ‘Yes” it would be adopted.
I don’t have a problem with homosexuals. But you will have to pardon me for saying that there is no way possible I will consider that complete strangers teach my child the merits of homosexuality while my child is an innocent captive in their classroom. No. What does that have to do with getting a job?
It was undeniable that the structure of public education was going in the direction of marginalizing White children and elevating everyone else. I could write about a book about that, but parents have been blowing through those warning signs for 20 years, and at some point, it feels just fruitless to keep showing people things they refuse to understand.
Lest anyone believe that I am making up a conspiracy, scroll back up to Tolerance.org – who funds them? According to their site, they are “a project of Southern Poverty Law Center.”
When I was investigating the state of education, parents still had a lot of influence over the school’s board. However, that was changing with the adoption of Ted Kennedy’s utopian education bill, which was forced on Americans, by the George Bush administration, for a more centralized, National curriculum run by the Federal Government.
While other parents thought that was a great idea because it meant equality to them, I took that time as an opportunity to grow far more independent than I had ever been before. I ran away.
When Obama was in office, things went from bad to worse, but I was out of the schools altogether then and insulated from the drama; my children were doing very well. However, others were complaining about the curriculum, and it was then that I discovered I had been involved in a Common Core Pilot program. Parents were furious about Common Core Math. Social media posts were wild with protests and revolts at the school board level, parents and activists cried and screamed at school board meetings, but nothing really changed- parents were just ignored more, and things got worse.
Federal controls were still in place.
What I see happening now at the school board level in politics is precisely what I foresaw in 1999 made me run away.
What I want to point out is that 1) The Schools are federalized. So the unorthodox teaching methods and materials parents hate that are determined by radical far-leftists from some faraway place by people who have nothing in common with parents -is what America gets with a massive centralization of education that is heavily influenced by foreign and Marxist groups.
The system has to change. We have to elect, support, and defend strong Federal leaders to change the system.
And parents should get involved at the school board level, which is also important, but the big changes will have to undo the federal ownership of schools and then never give the federal government to run schools ever again.
