Skip to comments.The Dangerous Lessons the Left Is Teaching Our Kids
Posted on 10/29/2019 1:36:38 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Here are some of the messages the left has been giving Americas young people:
Your past is terrible, and your future is terrible.
The American past is a story of genocide, slavery, racism, patriarchy, and colonialism. You should be ashamed of it.
As regards your future, your very existence is in jeopardy. You may well die at a young age unless society completely shifts from fossil fuels to wind and solar power. In fact, your future is so bleak you should probably not consider getting married and having children.
If you are a girl, you should know that American society has contempt for you. You will be paid less than a man for the exact same work and the exact same number of hours of work. You will have between a 1 in 4 and 1 in 3 chance of being sexually assaulted if you attend college. There is a glass ceiling that will prevent you from professional success. And professional success, not marriage and family, is what you should concentrate on.
That none of the above is true is irrelevant to the left. What is relevant to the left is that these messages make young women leftistsbecause they make them angry (virtually all leftists are angry), sad (there are happy liberals and happy conservatives but very few happy leftists), and lonely (singles are overwhelmingly on the left).
If you are a young black, the most important thing for you to know is that this country loathes youthat racism is part of our DNA, as President Barack Obama put itand that just being black gets you suspended or expelled from school, shot by police, denied the vote whenever possible, and disproportionately imprisoned.

Public schools = child abuse. Pull ‘em out!
All spelled out in the communist goals read into the Congressional record in 1963
“If you are a girl, you should know that American society has contempt for you...”
And it isn’t just college teaching that - it is everywhere. I wonder if this message is one of the reasons why there has been such a huge increase in girls becoming transgender males (4,500% increase in 10 years).
there are people on this site that do not support marriage.
Every abstract term, such as education, liberty, freedom, integrity, authority, etc, has a precise meaning to people on the left that is nearly the opposite of its meaning to people on the right.
Leftists use these terms in a deliberately deceptive way, by presuming that there is a shared understanding of meaning, when they know that there isn’t.
This is just one of their propaganda techniques.
In the same vein, I recently watched an enjoyable video. A speech by Andrew Klavan, on the 7 deadly sins.
Best to start at about 12:20, when he has quit ad libbing and starts to explain why the Left will turn your life to garbage because everything they’re endorsing — pride, anger, etc. — is a deadly sin.
That Black face is evil?
So, as Parents, you need to WATCH and OBSERVE the lessons their being taught, by being involved in their homework, and actively set out to undo every brainwash attempt.
Teach them the “Nod And Grin” method of dealing with teachers: just humor and agree, get the grade, and get out.
I raised my kids like that, and they turned out amazing.
Another Reason to Homeschool
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
“there are people on this site that do not support marriage.”
In their cases that’s probably not a bad idea.
The Left didn’t teach my kids jack, but then again, unlike most conservatives, I NEVER LET THEM - my kids stay OUT of the public schools.
Do you have a link?
Sorry I must have accidentally deleted it from the post. Here you go:
"No Child Left Behind" is just another way of stating "No Child Gets Ahead".
No matter what level of skill or effort is given, all will matriculate with the same accreditation because the government will step in to insure "success" even if it means adults taking the tests in the name of the incompetent.
Isn't that the essence of Socialism?
