How Children Become Progressives | Newsbusters

What is the secret to making progressives? Cooking them at a school for six hours per day and five days a weeks, so they’re indoctrinated into an ideology which contradicts many of their parents.

It began as a trickle, but now is approaching a flood as activist groups – notably LGBTQ organizations – have infiltrated public schools and demanded their views on sexuality and gender be taught.

Below are just some of the many. Montgomery County in Maryland, where I got a great education and didn’t have to deal with the culture war stuff. Cedar Grove Elementary School posted this message on its PTA Facebook page: “[we] will be celebrating love, respect, and tolerance: by use of video with students holding Pride flags while pledging, ‘Love, Respect, Freedom, Tolerance, Equality, and Pride.’” What happened to pledging to the American flag?

Montgomery County, once a conservative suburb of Washington, D.C., is also home to The Washington Times reports a group of parents are waiting for a federal judge to rule on their lawsuit directed at overturning a school district policy that “requires teachers to hide how gender-transitioning students identify at school by reverting to ‘birth’ names and pronouns with ‘unsupportive caregivers.”

Erin Lee, the mother of a 12-year-old girl in Fort Collins, Colorado, complained when an after school “Arts club” her daughter attended turned out to be a “Genders and Sexualities Alliance Club.” Lee said the club taught that “heterosexuality and monogamy are not normal.” She also claimed students were told not to tell their parents. Lee pulled her daughter out of the middle school and enrolled her in a private Christian school where she says she is “doing much better.”

It’s not just gender and sexuality that is being taught in public schools. An assortment of Jewish parents The federal lawsuit was filed by the plaintiffs challenging Los Angeles Public Schools’ use of anti-Semitic or anti-Zionist material. The materials, they say, refer to Israel as a “settler state” founded on “genocide.”

In their book “Get Out Now: Why You Should Pull Your Child from Public School Before It’s Too Late,” Mary Rice Hasson and Theresa Farnan detail at great length — with hundreds of documenting footnotes — the progress activist groups have made in manipulating the minds of young people whose ability to think critically has yet to be even marginally developed.

This one paragraph sums up the challenge: “Public education has been incredibly successful in one area – churning out youthful progressives – growing numbers of men and women in the grips of existential confusion, perpetual victimhood, and political intolerance….The system takes full advantage of their most formative years in early elementary school, and the indoctrination continues through high school. Thanks to America’s public schools, they show up to college already prepped and ready to play on the progressive team.”

The authors have an Appendix in which they answer most of the questions raised by parents – including how to deal with the cost of private education and whether their kids can play sports if they don’t attend a public school.

Refusing to protect one’s children from this stuff is a form of moral, spiritual and intellectual abuse. Parents of children in public schools should take the time to think about what’s best for them and their kids as this school year ends. You can begin by looking at what’s being taught in your local school. Then, they can get them out.
