Teaching Prejudice

Did you know that your children are racist? President Joe Biden’s administration says they are and wants to fix them.  The U.S. Department of Education is preparing to advocate the idea that America is systemically racist and anyone who thinks differently, children included, are part of the problem — whether the students know it or not.

This is an important read for anyone with children in public schools or who has friends with children in public schools. We also need to contact our legislatures at both state and federal levels to block this move. For more details see this article.

Until next time…“May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)

President Obama Did What? (OOPS – I got caught in a hoax)

I and quite a few others got caught by a hoax – and an old one at that!.  This is not the first time the author has posted this article.  Snopes.com and factcheck.com both point out that this “ABC News” article is a fake article by satirist Paul Horner.  One of his fake news websites is abcnews.com.co (note the “.co”).   This is not ABC News’ real website.

However, it was sort of fun to write my post and, to tell you the truth, IMNSHO (in my not so humble opinion) it is something that our illustrious President would do if he thought he could get away with it.

I decided to leave this on my blog, just for the heck of it.  It is fairly easy for a hoax like this to work because of the way most of us feel about our government and their extensive overreach!

…and on a Sunday morning, no less — early in the morning when no one was watching!  How can we allow this type of so-called Political Correctness to continue?  This is a blatant disregard for everything the USA stands for!  Fortunately, this doesn’t apply to private schools — unless they are foolish enough to take government funding.  I’m not a lawyer, but I would think that this cannot prevent students, and others, from initiating recitation of the pledge under the banner of “student-led”, just as they are permitted to initiate prayer.  It also doesn’t prevent on-duty personnel from reciting it “under their breath”.  Frankly, I find it hard to believe that many will follow the ruling, except those who are to scared to stand up to our government.

Obama Signs Executive Order Banning The Pledge Of Allegiance In Schools Nationwide

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — Early this morning, President Obama made what could very well prove to be the most controversial move of his presidency with the signing of Executive Order 13738, which revokes the federal government’s official recognition of the Pledge of Allegiance. Under the new order, it is now illegal for any federally funded agency to display the pledge or for any federal employee to recite, or encourage others to recite, the pledge while on duty. This law also applies to federal contractors and other institutions that receive federal funding such as public schools. Individuals who violate this order can face fines of up to $10,000 and up to one year in federal prison.

During the press conference, the President explained his decision was based on a personal belief that the language used in the pledge is “divisive” and “contrary to America’s deepest held values.”  [Sorry, Mr. President, that language is unifying of our citizenry.  If individuals choose not to recite it, that is their option under Free Speech.  However, your action must be a violation of the First Amendment! ]

Charter School Word of Caution

KNOW WHO OWNS AND OPERATES YOUR LOCAL CHARTER SCHOOL!

KNOW WHERE YOUR TAX DOLLARS ARE GOING!

Do you have a child in a charter school?  Are you interested in sending your child to a charter school?   Before you do so, carefully investigate the ownership.  Dig deep, because all may not be as innocent as it appears.

Approximately 140 charter schools across the country are owned by Muhammad Fethullah Gülen.  According to an article in the May/June 2016 issue of Israel My Glory magazine, which quotes an article by WND’s (World Net Daily) Leo Hohmann, Gülen is a Turkish Islamist with a reported goal of bringing Sharia law to America through “civilizational jihad–a form of nonviolent jihad focused on infiltrating and overcoming Western nations over time through immigration and exploitation of the civil liberties available in those nations.”  Through these schools, he is collecting tens of millions in American tax dollars to fund his anti-American agenda.

By the way, the U.S. gave Gülen legal permanent resident status in 2008, and he is now eligible for citizenship.

A complete list of Gülen’s schools is available at tinyurl.com/7uxruyr.  Hohmann’s article is available at tinyurl.com/jtpjtza and a related article by Todd Starns of FOX News is available at tinyurl.com/zhulgfx.  I checked the list and three NC schools are on it:

So, if you have a student in a charter school, are considering enrolling your child in one, or know of someone who is, research the background throughly before enrolling.

Excessive teaching about the Islamic religion may be going on in your local non-charter public school as well.  You may have heard of an incident at La Plata [public] High School in Charles County, at which students were allegedly made to profess the Muslim statement of faith and memorize the Five Pillars of Islam. According to the list, La Plata is not one of  Gülen’s schools.  This is actually more disconcerting.  La Plata and the Maryland school system, are being sued in federal court regarding this practice.  The suit also alleges that the school teaches that “…the Islamic religion is a fact while Christianity and Judaism are just beliefs.”  Just one more reason to be alert to what your child is being taught at all levels of education!
