CHRISTMAS HEROES: Parents Fighting Anti-Christian Agendas

How ironic that as children all across the nation prepares to take part in various Christmas season events that they, in far too many cases, will not be allowed to actually celebrate Christmas. But to be honest, it is far more serious than just celebrating Christmas. Each day millions of students are sent by their parents off to build a solid academic base as well as learn about our American values in school. Those values and principles are built upon Judeo-Christian beliefs. In 2013 there were over 400 biblical principle attacks on children who wanted to read a Bible before or after school or even during lunch break and were denied.com02

When your child returns from the Christmas holidays will he or she still have to learn and embrace the teaching of Islam in the classroom, but have the teaching of biblical history overruled? What happens when the topics your child may be learning are ideals and values that marginalize how you have raised them and articulate an agenda that compromises your family’s religious beliefs? This is not something that can be overlooked simply because the child is heading home for a Christmas break.Confused

Actually this serves as the best time to discuss and share what your beliefs are and reinforce the reasons why you will stand up for them when your child returns to school in the New Year. Don’t accept the erroneous church and state separation argument that liberal school officials try to jam down the throat of Christian parents. Your child has U.S. Constitutional rights and they must be protected.

In 2014, it has become an unfortunate circumstance in far too many communities across America that conservatives and parents of faith find themselves locked out of a parental support system like the school’s parents’ organization. Instead of assisting the parents by standing up for their interests and the interests of their kids, the parent organizational members give them cold to lukewarm support.

So it really is upon you;

  • As a parent what are you willing to sacrifice to stand up and protect your child from a school or a school district that is willing to take away or marginalize your child’s values and principles because it is convenient for them?

  • Are you willing to tolerate unfair and illegal treatment of your child?

  • Are you willing to let the politically correct values of liberal parents and secular anti-Christian organizations dominate your life, principles and support of America’s biblical heritage?real heros

America has a culture that rises up from the deep foundational values that guided the founding fathers. We understand that it is America’s heritage found in small towns, big cities and rural communities that give birth to parental heroes whose actions become larger than life. These are the parents that pray over their decisions at their kitchen table, or in the living room or perhaps during the church service. As a responsible parent they take a stand on principle rather than they should turn over their role and responsibility to the offending teacher, principal, submitting to the will of a partial anti-Christian school administrator or local school board member. They are not like others who take the easy route and conveniently swallow their principles and their values.

Be one of those parents who are not just heroes for their children but are truly American Heroes with a capital H. Join and recruit others in your school, neighborhood and church this Christmas season in the nation’s Heartland.

Take a page from Samuel Adams, who was one of America’s Revolutionary Heroes and a Founding Father. Adams’s father was a church deacon and was deeply influenced by him. Adams spoke of lukewarm supporters saying,

“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

Let liberty and your children and America’s future generations be your guide and your prayer as you celebrate this Christmas season. There is no tranquility in servitude to political correctness, so take off the politically correct chains of convenience that are used to shackle your children. Praise the birth of the Son of God and fight to protect your child and their future in the New Year as their Hero!

Our Education System Continues It’s Downward Slide to Destruction

White is not right: Campus admins ask for help weeding out white people

Western Washington University (Photo: Wikimedia Commons)  WHAT DID YOU SAY

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” (REALLY??????? WHAT HAPPENED TO GIVING THE STUDENT WITH THE BEST GRADES AND S.A.T. EXAM RESULTS TO OPPORTUNITY SAID STUDENT WORKED THEIR ASS OFF TO ACHIEVE?)

The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform.

“I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, that we as a faculty and staff and student body, as an administration, if we 10 years from now are as white as we are today, we will have failed as a university,” said Bruce Shepard, president of WWU, in a 2012 address.

The statements and actions of administrators suggest a preoccupation with skin color at WWU. In his address, Shepard made sure to discuss the racial make up of his new hires.

The university is also putting staff members through diversity and sensitivity training on topics such as “heterosexual privilege,” and “language privilege.” Such sessions were made voluntary after some people complained.

Being the Change I want to See

Written on Saturday, January 18, 2014 by

Over the past couple of weeks I have had the opportunity to view into our public education system and see firsthand just how bad our system is failing our children. I mentioned the other day that many children, in high school no less, are having difficulty reading. Not only reading; reviewing what was read in order to study seemed like a lost concept to many of them. I sat in front of a class of high school kids and had to teach them how to correlate a title of a paragraph with review questions at the end of a chapter, in order how to determine how to find the answer. In other words, there was no solid study habits ingrained in many of these kids.

If this isn’t bad enough, I taught at a middle school where clear back packs are issued to the students because of the rampant drug and violence problem among eighth graders. Middle schools with drug problems, that’s the reality of education in America today.  Speaking with the students it is clear beyond a reasonable doubt that America will be finished as these generations become adults and are completely clueless as to what is going on around them.  While there are a handful of kids who show an obvious sense of disdain for what they witness in these classrooms, they are the ones who are truly being left behind as the system has to cater to those who simple y don’t care. It’s reminiscent of the Chicago study I wrote about the other day with the lower achieving math students being placed into a class with the higher achieving students. The results obviously favored the lower achieving as the whole system had to be curtailed to meet their needs, thus leaving those thirsting for knowledge behind. This is happening on a much larger scale as schools are forced to deal with behavioral issues, this leaves the students that do behave in the dust because they are being forced to meet the same standard.

Who would be held responsible for something like this, the teacher, the school district, the DOE? I don’t know, but I think it’s a problem because no one is being held responsible for it. I think on one level you have a deliberate attempt to implement standards that lower academic achievement in order to pursue this abstract concept of “total equality” and create compliant citizens. While on another level you have the teachers who went into the profession for all the right reasons and now have no idea how to even identify what is going wrong in the system. Their hands are tied and their job depends upon their compliance.  Not only that; many teachers are completely unaware of many of the topics discussed among conservatives, i.e. the communist infiltration into education etc, etc. It is likely that these teachers are a byproduct of the very system that teaches them just to go along to get along themselves; therefore they are unlikely to buck the system and bring unwanted attention to themselves, which is why it will never change. Folks, we have to buck the system.

If you are a regular reader of my articles, or if you have researched anything about education than you know much of this represents a one hundred year plan to change our culture.  John Dewey, Antonio Gramsci and others viewed education as a means of gaining control of the minds of young people so they could control a population. Reversing this is going to require nothing less than that folks. We have to start now, not with the attitude that we are just realizing our country is being taken over, but with one that acknowledges it already has been. Changing our culture back is not going to happen while conservative minded Americans are more concerned about careers, prestige, retirement plans and their next vacation. All of this feeds into the plans of the socialists that control them. That’s right; this system has been controlled by these people for a long time, that’s why so many are afraid to speak up. When you’re afraid to speak up out of fear of losing your job, or fear of standing out, you are not free; you are serving the system that has silenced you.

Winning our culture back will take nothing less than the same dedication that the socialists have displayed in destroying it. Dedicating one hundred percent of your efforts toward influencing the young minds in this country is what it is going to take. This is why fields like education are completely dominated by liberals; they understand their objective, transforming the hearts and minds of your kids so they reflect the ideals of collectivism. While they were doing this everyone else was distracted by the allure of working hard to achieve the unachievable because it was being destroyed right before our very eyes. While you are setting an example for little Johnny by working hard and saving money, the people you send them off to be educated by are teaching them this system is greedy and you are selfish.  We simply can no longer sit on the sidelines and claim we need change while allowing the socialists to dominate the fields best suited to implement it.

In the past I have written extensively about being educated on Saul Alinsky and social activism in the college classroom. Social work education, at the bachelor level was nothing short of being taught how to be democratic operatives, or “social change agents.” In other words, colleges are teaching your kids how to be radicals, how to be a boat rocker.  Occupy Wall Street was a perfect example of this as many of those people were college students begging for socialism. I tell you this to stress the urgency in which we need to act folks. We have to be the change we want to see and by doing this we have to start becoming the teachers, we have to start becoming the social workers, we have to start showing these kids how the liberals are failing them. We have to take advantage of the dire economic opportunities and use the fact that jobs like teaching and other “social service” related jobs are what is available and stack these positions with motivated conservatives, until; well until one hundred years from now we have changed our culture back.

Maybe I am not saying anything that hasn’t been said before, but after seeing firsthand the extent education in America has been destroyed, from the perspective of a college student arguing with communist professors and as a teacher inside the system, it has to be said again. I can only hope that what I say will resonate.
