        "Unfortunately, the Zinn Education Project refuses to accept defeat, and desires to teach American children that this country was founded upon the “dispossession of Native Americans, slavery, structural racism and oppression,” as opposed to the principles of liberty enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution."

More Than 5,000 Woke Teachers Sign Pledge to Teach Critical Race Theory (CRT) 'Regardless of the Law'

Throughout much of 2021, conservatives, in both classrooms and in the halls of state legislatures, have been fighting back against the pervasive influence of critical race theory in public schools.

Laws banning the instruction of CRT tenets in public schools have passed in more than 20 states, and there is reason t0 hope that the tide is beginning to turn in the fight for the country’s history and principles.

Unfortunately, the Zinn Education Project refuses to accept defeat, and desires to teach American children that this country was founded upon the “dispossession of Native Americans, slavery, structural racism and oppression,” as opposed to the principles of liberty enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

The organization is named for Howard Zinn, a socialist activist and “historian” who wrote “A People’s History of the United States,” a left-wing propaganda pamphlet disguised as a textbook that has made its way into history classes all across the country.

The Zinn Education Project claims that “from police violence, to the prison system, to the wealth gap, to maternal mortality rates, to housing, to education and beyond, the major institutions and systems of our country are deeply infected with anti-Blackness and its intersection with other forms of oppression. To not acknowledge this and help students understand the roots of U.S. racism is to deceive them — not educate them.”

~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, the ZEP is circulating a “Pledge to Teach the Truth,” which identifies left-wing methods of analysis like critical race theory as “the truth,” and decrees that the signees — all of whom are educators — refuse to be “bullied” into compliance with the law.

The pledge reads:

“To: State Legislators
From: [Your Name]

“We, the undersigned educators, refuse to lie to young people about U.S. history and current events — regardless of the law.”

So far, according to the Zinn Education Project, the pledge has been signed by more than 5,000 educators in all 50 states, and many of the signees were more than happy to provide their reasons for signing. Needless to say, some of them were quite shocking.

“How can we teach future generations to disrupt systems if we are not willing to speak the truth about the systems?” one wrote.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

None of what conservatives are advocating for precludes informing students honestly about the darker times in American history, like slavery, the Indian Removal Act, Jim Crow and Japanese internment.

But allowing students to challenge institutions is not the same as ordering students to challenge institutions, or outright telling lies.

        “Kink visibility is a reminder that any person can and should shamelessly explore what brings joy and excitement,” the writer added. “We don’t talk to our children enough about pursuing sex to fulfill carnal needs that delight and captivate us in the moment.”

‘You Should Be In Prison’: Critics Slam WaPo Article Encouraging ‘Kink Culture’ For Children

A Washington Post op-ed published Tuesday celebrates and encourages exposing children to “kink culture,” such as explicit performances at pride parades.

Yes, kink belongs at Pride,” reads the headline of writer Lauren Rowello’s Tuesday WaPo piece. “And I want my kids to see it.” 

Rowello, a "gendervague" person who is married to a transgender woman, described how the couple attended a pride parade where their children were confused to see “a few dozen kinksters who danced down the street, laughing together as they twirled their whips and batons, some leading companions by leashes.”

The term gendervague appears to refer to a person whose gender identity is “inextricably related” to being autistic.

“The man paused to be spanked playfully by a partner with a flog,” Rowello wrote. “‘What are they doing?’ my curious kid asked as our toddler cheered them on.”

The Washington Post writer said that though the children “were too young to understand the nuance of the situation,” Rowello told them that “these folks were members of our community celebrating who they are and what they like to do.”

“Children who witness kink culture are reassured that alternative experiences of sexuality and expression are valid — no matter who they become as they mature, helping them recognize that their personal experiences aren’t bad or wrong, and that they aren’t alone in their experiences,” Rowello wrote.

“Kink visibility is a reminder that any person can and should shamelessly explore what brings joy and excitement,” the writer added. “We don’t talk to our children enough about pursuing sex to fulfill carnal needs that delight and captivate us in the moment.”

The LGBTQs are coming for your kids – and they’re not hiding it

No-Go Zone: 'We're Coming For Your Children'

One of the real sticking points for American parents is the left’s insistence on forcing sexuality onto kids. In leftist world, kids must be exposed as early as possible – in preschool is best – to all 52 or 76 or 103 (or whatever) different “genders” and sexual practices the LGBTQ community is currently claiming. Parents understand that, when leftists refuse to allow children a long, innocent period in which to develop their own sense of self free of sexual and “gender” pressure, they are, in fact, “coming for our children.” To leftists, though, saying that aloud is “homophobia,” so the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus created what they seem to think is an “enlightened”  video about their “coming for your children.”

Tim Rosser and Charlie Sohne composed the song which is really, really bad. Musically it’s uninspired and lyrically it’s creepy. They’re the same duo who, in 2020, offended the Afghan diaspora with their musical “The Boy Who Danced on Air”:

The musical romanticizes and promotes the practice of “bacha bazi,” which translates to “boy play,” a form of pederasty, or pedophilia, where young boys are typically kidnapped from their families and forced to dance at parties for groups of men. Bacha bazi is linked to sex trafficking, sexual assault, and rape. The producers of this musical have said that this is a part of Afghan culture. It is not. As members of the Afghan diaspora, we reject such a vile and racist portrayal of our culture. Not only is it deeply problematic that two white men are at the forefront of a musical attempting and failing to depict Afghan culture, the musical fetishizes and trivializes sex trafficking and rape, and harms victims of sexual exploitation and violence. 

Put another way, one could say that these two gay men romanticize pedophilia and pederasty. Therefore, it makes sense that this less than dynamic duo came up with a dreadful song entitled (no fooling) “We are coming for your children.”

Parents Cancelled by Their Own Children

It happened that, as I was thinking about writing about my husband and me being canceled by our own children six months ago — we have been agonizing about not being able to talk to them or see our grandson for all that time — a thought popped into my mind: blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The left has been working on making the children of the middle class into radicals, turning them against their parents and their parents' values for fifty years now, in multiple generations.  All the things we middle-class parents believed in and called good, our children now call bad and false, and more than bad and false, worthy of destruction, especially if we parents are Christian and conservative, and even more so if we are Trump-supporters.  Our cancellation is the fruit of the left's strategy to remake America.

It was shocking to us that our children canceled us for being who and what we are; we have tried to be good and true parents, faithful and patriotic.  We are heartbroken, blame ourselves, blame our children, reach out and plead and cajole, pray and pray and pray and ask others to pray, too.

It is not just we.  This is happening to many middle-class families.  For example, I met a friend the other day, and she told me she has several friends whose children are cancelling them.  One of them is a mother with whom my friend was close as their kids grew up.  She said this person was an excellent mother, but now her son will have nothing to do with her and is calling her an abusive mother.

My friend's own son cancelled her and her husband, too.  The son told his mother that everything they taught him was a lie.  Before he cancelled them, he forbade his mother to talk to him about God anymore.

Years ago, my children also told me I was not allowed to talk to them about God anymore.

Both of us told our children that we would not proselytize, but we could not promise never to mention God because we are people of faith; it is who we are.

When my husband posted on Facebook about our plight, more than a few friends responded that they were going through the same things.  One mother said her three children will have nothing to do with her anymore and had recently left her out of a family wedding.  She said she is also a person of faith.

What is going on is evil.  Just evil.  Have our children been caught in evil's trap?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And leftism is cultlike.  It demands that young people give up God.  Then they are required to convert their parents — remember how President Obama told kids to go home and talk to their parents at Thanksgiving — and, if they will not convert, children must distance themselves from parents as punishment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You might be thinking, come on, you are just bad parents who were abusive, and you are just making excuses.  Your kids were justified in cancelling you.   

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When Donald Trump was running for president, my husband voted for him, but I could not.  After he was president, we both supported him.  Our kids did hate Trump with a passion, the same passion those around them expressed, an almost demonic hatred.

When the pandemic hit the USA, we did everything we were supposed to do to take care of ourselves, so our kids would not worry, and then we got vaccinated as soon as we could.  However, we did express concern in Colorado to our governor about lockdowns.  That upset our daughter, who was working on the pandemic response.  We apologized.

When the riot at the Capitol happened on January 6, 2021, that was the last straw for our children, or should I say, that was the best excuse.  They cancelled their parents.  No calls on Mother's Day.  No calls on Father's Day — even though we were not in D.C. that day, we were not at the Capitol, and we condemned the riot.

Nothing we did or said helped, and the children, perhaps to justify their decision to cancel their own parents, let it be known in one of the last conversations we had that they were now going to look at childhood issues; in other words, they would be finding rationale for their decision.  Six months out from January 6, we are still cancelled.

EXPOSED: Leaked Hasbro video, docs show they EXPLICITLY PLOT to BRAINWASH kids with CRT – Project Veritas

Indoctrination to CRT, the gateway drug to Marxism, is already taking place all over corporate America in addition to the halls of government, academia, and on down to kindergartens and day cares. But Project Veritas exposing what’s going on at Hasbro isn’t just about the company itself. It’s about the products.

That means toys, y’all. They’re deliberately aiming to indoctrinate kids “through branding and messaging. Through their products.” That’s a quote from the whistleblower.

The really short version is simple. Veritas and their whisteblower, David Johnson, have the training videos from the company itself, in which they EXPLICLITY STATE they are using their products for the EXPRESS purpose of altering the attitudes and “biases” of their target consumer. That is, children as young as FIVE years old.

Facebook Suspends User for Doubting Practicality of Masks on Children, Now Social Media Platform Is Facing a Monster Suit

A Facebook user suspended for pushing back against putting masks on children is fighting back.

San Diego Data analyst Justin Hart was sent to three days of Facebook’s version of time-out last week after posting a graphic that threw shade on the merits of putting masks on children as a way to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

The graphic was titled, “Masking children is impractical and not backed by research or real world data,” according to Just the News.

The Liberty Justice Center, which sent Facebook a letter protesting the social media giant’s actions, noted that the graphic was “science-based and contains footnotes to scientific evidence supporting its claims.”

The letter, which said Facebook would be sued if it did not end its ban on Hart, noted that Facebook in the past has censored viewpoints that it disliked and which later were found to be valid.

The letter noted that at one time, Facebook muzzled anyone who advanced the theory that the coronavirus began ravaging the globe because of a leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, in Wuhan, China — a point that even the Biden administration has now admitted is possible.

Facebook should “admit its error” and let posts such as Hart’s about masks for children remain available as an “equally valid scientific hypothesis,” the letter said.

         "Parents have already begun pushing back against other items on the woke agenda, but Monday's meeting in Carmel revealed the sexual indecency introduced to children in public schools."

Crowd gasps as parents read school's pornographic books out loud at board meeting

Highly sexual content being peddled to children

One parent spoke out against the "global campaign to promote sexualized material to grade school children which is heralded by the UN, championed by Planned Parenthood and is now making its way into the Carmel schools."

She noted some of the titles available at elementary schools, including "Introducing Teddy: A Gentle Story About Gender and Friendship," which uses a teddy bear to teach kids that gender isn't determined by biology. There is also "Sparkle Boy," about a toddler's cross-dressing tendencies, and "Call Me Max," in which a kindergarten girl gets a teacher to call her by a boy's name.

(Whatever happened to reading Dr. Seuss books to schoolchildren? Oh, right -- canceled by the woke mob.)

Another parent read from a novel available to Carmel high schoolers that includes a pornographic scene explicitly describing characters engaged in various sex acts. It's too obscene to even summarize.

A third parent read from the book "It's Perfectly Normal," which is available to middle school children and promoted by Planned Parenthood. It teaches kids how to masturbate and is filled with nitty-gritty details

A book called "Crank" details a disturbing rape that transpires when a young couple goes into the woods to get drunk and high on meth..

"If I had known you were just going to lay there, I wouldn't have bothered," the rapist tells his victim on the car ride home.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Parents have already begun pushing back against other items on the woke agenda, but Monday's meeting in Carmel revealed the sexual indecency introduced to children in public schools.

“If I were to read it to you, you wouldn’t be able to air it because it would be against FCC obscenity laws,” Lui told WXIN-TV. “Everyone was uncomfortable, and these are adults.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Transgender advocates know that if they can get a hold of kindergarten minds, they can recruit a generation of confused children. The doctors who prescribe the puberty blockers and perform the "transition" surgeries can get that much richer.

Beyond the political sphere, what we have here is a battle for the hearts and souls of American children.

This perversion tailored to kids stems from a diabolical determination to spoil their innocence and set them up for a life of servitude to sin.

Whether they know it or not, the teachers giving smut to their students are cooperating with the dark powers that would turn us away from God by shackling us to our basest desires. There's no surer way to do that than to expose children to this filth early and often.

       "The report said the Commons Education Committee claims it is important to "get a grip" on the number of student being educated OUTSIDE OF GOVERNMENT CONTROL."

        You see, parental control is the enemy, and must be blotted out. As it is, homeschooled children, in general, outperform government educated children wherever it is tried...but they DO NOT want you to know this. That is essentially because the parents CARE more than the government about their children.

https://www.wnd.com/2021/07/government-calls-national-list-homeschooled-children/

Government calls for national list of homeschooled children

UK lawmakers demand 'getting a grip on the number of young people not being taught in school'

Interest in homeschooling has surged over the last year, as lockdowns, face mask mandates and social distancing – combined with teachers' unions efforts to keep school closed – have damaged the public school offerings.

And it's not just in America. In the United Kingdom, more than 40,000 students were formally removed from public schools from September 2020 to April 2021, almost double the average from previous years.

And that has alarmed lawmakers there, to the point members of Parliament now are demanding a "national registry" of all students school outside the system.

The BBC reports a committee of lawmakers is demanding that national list of children to remove an "unacceptable level of opaqueness."

The report said the Commons Education Committee claims it is important to "get a grip" on the number of student being educated outside of government control.

Home educators, the report noted, are warning such a move will only increase the distrust many parents already have in the "system."

It was a report called "Strengthening Home Education" by lawmakers that charges the government fails to collect and compile enough details about children in homeschooling programs.

MP Robert Halfon claimed it was "frankly astonishing" that the government was only able to make a "best guess" over the standard of education children schooled at home were receiving, the report said.

The lawmakers have claimed their goal is to make sure those who are schooled at home are "getting the same opportunities as their school-educated peers," the report said.

"Some parents are providing their children with a high-quality educational experience, but those against greater oversight must realize that it does not follow that all home-educated children are in the same boat," Halfon charged. "Getting a grip on the number of young people not being taught in school with a national register for children outside of school must just be the first step in shaking up the status quo."

Pro-homeschooling officials at Education Otherwise accused the lawmakers of "yet again" demanding policy based on "rhetoric and rumor."

"Parents are deeply aggrieved that the huge majority of their submissions - which make clear that there is no basis, nor benefit, in registration of home-educated children - have been ignored, in what was manifestly a predetermined outcome of a deeply prejudiced inquiry," said Wendy Charles-Warner, head of the group.

The Christian Institute noted that education specialist Harriet Pattison just this month raised concerns about the idea of a registry for homeschooled students.

"Putting people's names on a list" essentially would criminalize parents who don't volunteer their children's information, Pattison, a senior lecturer in Early Childhood Studies at Liverpool Hope University, told the Daily Mail.

        "Leftists cannot ply their sick/twisted ideology in a happy and prosperous society, given that the actual impact of their agenda is entirely negative. Hence, they must create the conditions of squalor, despair, and frustration from which people will look desperately to others for a “cure.” The nation has seen little else from leftist Democrats for a very long time."

https://noqreport.com/2021/08/05/critical-race-theory-a-spiritual-pox-on-america/

Critical Race Theory: A Spiritual Pox on America

Americans of every racial background who love and cherish this country must first recognize that the anti-white onslaught of the past year is actually not in any way about ethnicity. Rather, it is an attack on Western Civilization as the forbearer of America, and more specifically, the Judeo-Christian principles on which our Nation was founded. Many Americans of every ethnic background, who love this country and have thrived in it, are appalled at such flagrant bigotry and will have nothing to do with it. Conversely, a major portion of the venomous anti-white mob agitators are themselves white leftists.

This is how the left operates, and how it always has. The goal is to undermine and eventually destroy the moral/spiritual tenets of a great America, on the premise that those ideals were not always flawlessly undertaken and therefore must be discarded in their entirety, to be replaced with the “utopian” bliss of Godless socialism. It makes no difference that, by any standard, the nightmarish consequences of Marxist ideology (the real monster behind the veneer of socialism) have been the cause of vastly more suffering and death in every nation where they have taken root, than those things Americans failed to get right in the beginning. Nevertheless, the country needs “fixed,” and leftists are convinced they are the ones to do it.

For such an abhorrent transformation to take place in a nation, it must first abandon its ideological roots. And the recent leftist war to destroy every worthy vestige of America, on the basis that such things reflect “whiteness,” is just the latest incarnation of that effort. Over time, race mongering has proven itself to be a workable tool to divide, exploit, and manipulate. So it should be no surprise that leftists are reverting to it once again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As a nation, Americans had overwhelmingly abandoned institutionalized racism, and for several decades prior to the end of the last century, they had increasingly enjoyed the universal societal benefits of authentic equality. Sadly, with the ascension of Barack Obama in 2008, an event that many naively presumed to be a final milestone signaling a truly “color blind” America, racial discord suddenly and dramatically resurged. It has been steadily escalating ever since. This was entirely by design.

Still, during the Trump Presidency, blacks were enjoying the lowest unemployment rates in history, and the future looked bright for all who recognized the opportunity to “pursue happiness” and achieve success as a result of diligence and effort. Prospects for a leftist remake of the nation were bleak. Enter “Critical Race Theory,” an ideological concept of projected bigotry, painting America with a broad brush of accusation and presumption. America, we are told by CRT devotees, is inherently racist simply because America is overwhelmingly white.

Leftists cannot ply their sick/twisted ideology in a happy and prosperous society, given that the actual impact of their agenda is entirely negative. Hence, they must create the conditions of squalor, despair, and frustration from which people will look desperately to others for a “cure.” The nation has seen little else from leftist Democrats for a very long time.

Fake News minions tirelessly seek any pretext to pound the “systemic racism” mantra. Predictably, the leftist sewer of public “education” became a hotbed of indoctrination of the next generation. Children are daily being pummeled with every venomous lie from the left, to convince them that racism is an inescapable aspect of humanity, with some inevitably being victims, while others are inevitably guilty, not as a as a result of attitudes or actions, but all on account their skin color.
