Government-run schools and the brainwashing of American children

Published

on

Unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain who build it” Psalm 127:1

Christians, members of Conservative Parties, and the church body as a whole are making a tremendously dangerous mistake regarding government run schools and Common Core. Public schools are a burning building into which we send children every day with a Dixie cup of water and a pat on the head, when what we should be doing is rescuing them from the fire.

Aside from the fact that government run schools are statistically an abysmal failure with regard to providing children with an education that leads to a successful life, such institutions also systematically uproot, dismantle and eradicate the Christian teachings many children receive at home.

It is naïve and foolish to believe a few hours a week in church will undo 30+ hours a week of brainwashing. Government schools are not merely secular institutions in which religion is not part of the curriculum. Rather, many are dedicated to ANTI-Christian tenets and the teaching of godlessness.

Spinning our Wheels

As one of the worst offenders regarding the belief that we can change the government’s indoctrination institution–A.K.A. public schools– I have contacted Congressmen many times about the travesty called “national education standards” and have also cheered for politicians who claimed their platform was to “defeat” Common Core and “take back our schools.”

Many times, otherwise intelligent individuals like myself and the politicians I know do not see what should be very clear until something takes the blinders from our eyes. For me, that moment was when I was asked to review an documentary called “IndoctriNation” for film writer and author, Colin Gunn.

I never again want to hear the phrase “take back our schools.”

Government schools were never “ours” to begin with, thus dismantling the fallacy that we can take them back. Stealing the school system from the government–which is essentially what we would have to do–and turning it into a learning institution based on traditional American values will never happen. The system is what it is and cannot be changed.

Many conservatives and Christians express concern on a daily basis about Common Core and what their children are being taught in public school. However, they make the fundamental mistake of attempting to wage war against the government on this issue, while their children are simultaneously being indoctrinated in an atheist-based education system.

While mom is sending e-mails to her congressman demanding public school curriculum reform, her son is learning that the world was formed by a cosmic accident. While dad is donating money to a politician who is going to “defeat” Common Core, his eight-year-old daughter is being taught homosexuality in the classroom without his permission.

By the time American citizens realize they are misguided in their attempts to fix public schools, it will be too late to save the generation now sitting in the classroom. For this reason, Christians should be educated about why they must remove their children from public school.

Waking the Sleeping Parents

We will never again have prayer in school, we will never again have a “neutral” curriculum that does not attempt to indoctrinate children with liberal philosophies, and we will never again have a majority of unbiased teachers who present both sides of any argument.

Gunn refers to our current education system as “Pharaoh’s school,” which obviously does not make sense to those who are not of the Christian faith: however, it is merely another way of saying that this well-organized system is nothing more than a pagan learning institution.

Sending Children to Their Doom While Asking for God’s Blessing

A godless society is the result of children receiving a godless education and that is what we have in America. Conservative values are ridiculed and scorned, while liberal ideology is celebrated. This attitude, embraced by the masses, was learned in the school of the government. Therefore, rather than running around cheering for politicians who want to “overturn Common Core,” we should instead see the futility of this approach and remove our children from a place where God has already told us they do not belong:

In the First Psalm, Christians read “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.” (NIV) How can we send our children to public school and expect them or ourselves to be blessed? According to the aforementioned scripture, we are sending them into the precise environment God told us to avoid.

God will not honor the efforts of parents or politicians to reform the house that humanism built because such efforts are nothing more than an attempt to compromise with a pagan system built on the foundation of atheism. God will only honor the prayers we pray over our children’s minds if we follow his instructions and ensure our children are not placed in the government’s institution of indoctrination.

A Task Assigned to Parents Delegated to the Government

The Bible tells us that we are to train up our children in the way they should go, not turn this task over to a godless government. However, on a daily basis, numerous Christian parents turn their children over to total strangers about whom they know nothing and allow them to indoctrinate their minds for 12 straight years.

It is s fact that only 12 percent of children raised in Christian homes graduate from public school still embracing their faith. A whopping 88 percent graduate as liberals who no longer believe the Bible. This statistic alone dismantles the argument of many well-meaning Christians and Pastors who believe that their children can be “the salt of the earth” and effectively witness for Christ in a public school.

If we sent missionaries overseas to Africa, India and similar countries to convert people to Christianity and 88 percent of them came home converted to pagan religions instead, wouldn’t we realize we were doing something wrong? Mathew 8:13 asks us “..what good salt is if it has lost its savor?” Children and teachers cannot be the “salt of the earth” in public schools, because the minute they say the name of Jesus they are silenced: Salt without savor.

Every Christian parent and Christian pastor in the United States should sacrifice a tiny fraction of their life to view the movie IndoctriNation, which won the Jubilee Award for Best Documentary at the 2012 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival. The movie digs deep into the disturbing, abominable and devilish tenets taught to children in public school and how they are cleverly disguised as “national standards.” Stop trying to rebuild the Devil’s house and remove your children from Pharaoh’s school.

    Your courage to tell the truth gives me hope. That doesn’t happen much anymore, thanks Jesse!

    Wow! What a sobering report that should alert us and wake us up to an awareness of how the public schools are doing their best to corrupt our helpless children. This is the main reason so many young people believed they should support a socialist for President of the United States! Thank you, Jesse!

    I enjoyed reading this article. Broadt once again has tackled a hard subject–the hijacking of our school system by the government. As I recall, there is no law that states one must send their children to public school, only a law that states a reasonable attempt must be made to educate one’s child. Public schools began as a way to ensure poor children and those unable to afford an education any other way, would be educated. However, at present, the school system is not following that very basic rule. It has, as all things run by the government, become a runaway cash cow for administrators, teachers, supervisors and for whatever else is deemed “necessary” to educate children. In my book, there is no excuse for this. The government should not be running our schools. We ARE the government, but we the people can’t seem to understand that concept. Thank you taking on another big issue. Beautifully written piece!

Why wasn’t a thwarted school shooting a major news story?

Why wasnt a thwarted school shooting a major news story

(Please note that we are not using the perpetrator’s name to keep the focus on the heroes who stopped this potential tragedy)

The liberty grabbers on the left usually jump at a chance to demonize the 2nd Amendment. Why not in this case?

Three staff members of Smith High School in Greensboro, North Carolina stopped a potential tragedy on Monday by quickly locking down the school and arresting the perpetrator.

The first to intervene was Patrick Jordan, a Behavioral Intervention Specialist who works at the school. He noticed someone who did not “fit in” walking past in the courtyard. Jordan then approached the man to ask why he was there, and after a short exchange the individual raised his shirt to show a handgun. Assistant Principal, Lashonti Hines, also noticed the gun. Hines and Jordan immediately called for a lock down. The criminal ran and was arrested after being tased by school Resource Officer, D.K. Evans.

The perpetrator had previously assaulted his girlfriend in Virginia Beach Monday morning before allegedly stealing the victim’s car to drive to the School in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The man had a backpack with two loaded handguns and eight boxes of ammunition. It was reported in the Sacramento Bee that the man had a “hit list” with plans to kill a woman and her parents in Durham, and then move on to Smith High School in Greensboro to kill two people. He then planned to drive to Maryland and kill one more person.

Why wasn’t this a major news story?

This potential mass murder in a school and elsewhere took place several days ago. While it did receive some perfunctory notice by some local and national news sources, it was quickly glossed over in favor of other stories. Why?

Several reasons can be gleaned from the accompanying video on the hero who stopped this tragedy. Suffice it to say that the ethnicity of the perpetrator, as well as the victims, did not fit the usual narrative. The featured video also had one of the heroes referring to that which is generally taboo with secular socialist television.

The primary difference between this case and others is that the perpetrator didn’t succeed. There were no images or video of children fleeing for their lives from the scene, and a decided lack of relatives of the victims emoting on-screen demanding for restrictions on freedom.

Colleague, Lorie Wimble, noticed a similar pattern with regard to a rape allegation by Katie Brennan, in which a political inconvenient story ends up getting buried in the news cycle. In this environment it’s mind-boggling that the media doesn’t understand why they are no longer trusted. It’s equally perplexing that they don’t understand that their bias is manifestly obvious.

A lost opportunity to demonize liberty

Compare the coverage of this potential “serious crisis” with one that is ripe for exploitation by the freedom floggers. Wall-to-wall coverage would soon be initiated after word of an exploitable tragedy coming in over the optic fiber (followed by the usual admonitions about our issue with liberty and how we must now restrict freedom) then, somber denizens of the nation’s Socialist left will pontificate on the dire need to control personal property, as well as everyone’s online speech.

One can easily imagine the gatherings of excited leftists in “news” rooms around the nation hoping for another chance to further their gun confiscation agenda, only to be disappointed that the obvious solution of armed school security saving the day. The sheer letdown for them, in the midst of their writing up of tweets with the hashtag #GunReformNow (meaning #GunConfiscationNow), when the news breaks that ordinary citizens stopped evil dead in it’s tracks.

Killing off the contagion

Studies show that over-the-top media coverage and making perpetrators “anti-heroes” tends to encourage copycat crimes. Even far-left publication ‘Mother Jones’ recognizes this problem. It’s also logical that publicizing the failure of one of these murderous miscreants would discourage this behavior in others with similar ideas.

Those planning these crimes go through five distinct planning phases. Seeing that someone was thwarted by an armed response may end the fantasy of an active shooter once and for all.

The takeaway

Truly common sense measures, such as eliminating so-called ‘Gun-Free’ zones and freeing people to carry concealed weapons, would dramatically reduce if not eliminate these tragedies. But for some, security is more important than essential liberty. Perhaps that is why they oppose the common sense solutions.

Ben Shapiro to testify in Ohio

Ben Shapiro to testify in Ohio

The states are the “laboratories of democracy” (Justice Louis Brandeis) and “education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom” (George Washington Carver). These two quotes will be put to the test with Ohio House Bill 758, the FORUM Act, which aims to protect and promote free speech on state campuses.

DailyWire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro will be one of several experts to testify on behalf of the bill. Shapiro is arguably the left’s favorite target when he goes to college campuses around the nation to speak, drawing protests and “trigger warnings” because of his conservative views. He is often accused by left-leaning campus groups of spreading dangerous ideologies, defending hate speech, and being antisemitic.

Shapiro is Jewish.

Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel Tyson Langhofer is also scheduled to testify.

ADF: Ohio bill sends right message on campus free speech

http://www.adfmedia.org/News/PRDetail/10647“The free and open exchange of ideas is essential to democracy, and perhaps no place is it more important than on public university campuses,” Langhofer said. “Public colleges and universities are meant to be marketplaces of ideas—where our future teachers, lawyers, judges, community leaders, and voters can exercise their constitutionally protected freedoms. Unfortunately, public universities are some of the most ideologically intolerant places in the entire country. This bill will help ensure that public universities again become places where intellectual diversity flourishes and all students are able to engage in the exchange of ideas rather than censorship on campus. We commend Ohio lawmakers for considering legislation that protects students’ First Amendment freedoms.”

The FORUM (Forming Open and Robust University Minds) Act is designed to reduce efforts to suppress free speech on state-funded campuses. It will eliminate “free speech zones,” allow students to hold events and activities on campus without interference, and promotes expression on campus regardless of political party or ideological preferences.

My Take

Universities have been turned into leftist indoctrination factories. The predominance of left-leaning faculty at most colleges has not only assisted in this systematic indoctrination, but has also emboldened students to utilize intimidation techniques against any high-profile conservative speakers.

Reading through HB 758 reveals some interesting measures that other states should consider. This isn’t really a defense of the 1st Amendment, though the attachment of state funds allows it to be framed within that narrative. But of greater importance is the practice of free speech itself in all of its non-detrimental forms on campuses that desperately need to hear both sides.

While progressives often try to suppress conservative ideas by labeling them as “dangerous” to justify their unhinged actions, most conservatives generally welcome dialogue on campuses from every side of a debate. We recognize that through dialogue we have our greatest opportunity to open minds and change hearts.

Conservatives, by our nature, will not suppress ideas as progressives often do on campuses. We need bills like these to give us a chance of breaking through the indoctrination. The greatest fear of campus progressives is someone like Shapiro spreading the truth.

Pro-Israel group has amazing response for upcoming antisemitic conference at UCLA

Pro-Israel group has amazing response for upcoming antisemitic conference

We’ve grown accustomed to opposing sides attempting to quash each other. Leftists often do everything they can to prevent conservatives from speaking at universities. Conversely, right-wing extremist groups often show up to intimidate leftist protesters. It’s a sad and dangerous ebb and flow that often seems impossible to resolve.

One might expect a similar reaction from pro-Israel groups when antisemitic groups come to town. Students for Justice in Palestine, a BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel) group that operates on campuses around the nation, is having their 8th annual conference at UCLA from November 16-18.

The response from Stand With Us, a pro-Israel organization, is not what most are accustomed to hearing. Charline Delkhah, Southwest Campus Coordinator for Stand With Us, didn’t call for protests or for the school to shut down the conference as many have done to her organization.

“But because we live in a country where freedom of speech is one of our basic amendments, they’re given the same rights as we would be given those rights to have a conference on any campus.”

As most campus groups work to stifle their opposition, it’s refreshing to see one embracing the 1st Amendment by defending the right to free speech even from those with opposite views.
