ANOTHER AD FOR HOMESCHOOLING (WHILE IT'S STILL LEGAL)
(and yes, they have already begun making it a crime to teach your own children instead of giving them to The State to be ....ahem...."parented" and indoctrinated)
Howard Zinn, who's Marxist "People's History of the United States" has been widely used as a text book in colleges for a long time, has now launched an indoctrination series to be used in elementary schools beginning with Kindergarten.
What will the children be learning, besides the Marxism the author proudly and openly supports?
That the pledge of allegiance is bad, one language is oppressive and of course, the obligatory America is evil.
He's teaming up with the History Channel to distribute a program, lesson plans and resources across the country.
Take some ginger to settle your stomach, then read about it at Big Hollywood.
The article concludes:
It is not surprising to me that there are groups sympathetic to Marx’s ideas throughout our country. What is surprising is that the most powerful persuasion machine in the world (Hollywood) and the History Channel would provide Zinn such a prominent soapbox to stealthily build a case for a destructive ideology to our children, and as a result mainstream his ideas with the magic of cool music, graphics, and celebrity. Groups that push Marx’s philosophy are like a virtual organism that will not die off even when stung by the undeniable historical evidence showing human behavior makes such a system unsustainable. If we let this virtual organism into our grade schools, it will take decades for our kids to unlearn the ideology.
And if there are any doubts of the intentions of Howard Zinn’s movement, I provide a quote of his in closing. When a reporter asked Zinn, “In writing A People’s History, what were you calling for? A quiet revolution?” Zinn responded: “A quiet revolution is a good way of putting it. From the bottom up. Not a revolution in the classical sense of a seizure of power, but rather from people beginning to take power from within the institutions. In the workplace, the workers would take power to control the conditions of their lives. It would be a democratic socialism.”
It appears that Zinn’s ilk have started the institutional phase of their agenda.
I disagree. It it was started a long, long time ago. This is just it's most recent phase. If you don't think this is a war for our survival as a nation, you're kidding yourself.
