Feds Enlist Schools in War on “Extremist” Children

In one of its most Orwellian schemes to date, the Obama administration is taking a page from Communist East Germany’s infamous Statsi by asking school teachers to start spying on American students so “extremists” can be reported to the FBI and other law-enforcement agencies. Among others in the federal government’s cross-hairs: pro-life activists, anarchists, environmentalists, animal-rights activists, Muslims, religious students critical of “Western corruption,” constitutionalists, and even children who simply criticize or question authorities too much.of domenstic terrorist

In a January 2016 unclassified FBI document about “preventing violent extremism in schools,” the FBI comes across as paranoiacs imagining that there are “extremist” children hiding under every bed. “High school students are ideal targets for recruitment by violent extremists seeking support for their radical ideologies,” claims the agency, which has become increasingly politicized under the Obama administration. “High schools must remain vigilant in educating their students about catalysts that drive violent extremism and the potential consequences of embracing extremist beliefs.” It claims there is a “very fine line” between protected speech and thought crimes.

Much of the document sounds unhinged and downright preposterous. For example, the document frets about “violent propaganda,” suggesting the federal government now believes free speech can somehow be violent. The FBI scheme also warns that children are supposedly “embracing violent extremism by maintaining biases towards others due to their race, religion, or sexual orientation.” In other words, mere disapproval of homosexuality, Islam, and more can now considered “extremism,” and the Obama FBI wants schools and teachers to join the war on such “extremism.” In Communist East Germany, the murderous dictatorship and its “State Security” agency, known as the Statsi, were also infamous for using teachers as snitches in adition to their brainwashing duties.

The Obama FBI warns schools that “more youth” are supposedly ready to “embrace extremist ideologies.” Some of them even “view hatred” as an “acceptable outlet for their grievances.” Why the FBI believes its job description includes students’ ideologies, biases, or hatreds is not made clear in the document, despite the ham-handed effort to equate “ideologies” the government dislikes — such as “anti-government views” and “abortion [pro-life] extremism” — with terrorism and violence. The Obama administration has previously claimed that returning veterans, constitutionalists, pro-life activists, liberty lovers, people suspicious of federal authority, anti-immigration activists, Ron Paul supporters, and others are extremists or even potential terrorists, too.

Of course, as The New American reported in 2014, much of the “terrorism” that does exist in the United States today is actually attributable directly to the FBI. Indeed, the U.S. government often manufactures and creates the alleged “terrorism threats” it purports to be fighting, in some cases even prodding mentally challenged dupes into bogus “plots” that authorities concocted in the first place. A report by Human Rights Watch and Columbia Law School’s Human Rights Institute found that almost every high-profile domestic terror case across America between the September 11 attacks and the 2014 report featured the “direct involvement” of government agents or informants. In some cases, virtually the entire “terrorism” plot — from start to finish — was actually led and financed by government operatives.

Those troubling facts aside, the Obama FBI claims to be “committed” to helping schools with “extremism.” Among other ways to address it, the agency calls for enhancing “student social and emotional well-being,” code words for sending in swarms of tax-funded psychiatrists and psychologists. The document also pushes more “information sharing” on American children between government agencies, as if not enough of that was going on. It seeks to “deter youth from embracing extremist ideologies,” too, with “extremist ideologies” defined by the same federal bureaucracies packed full of anti-Constitution extremists.

If finding extremism is the goal, though, a good place to start would be the Obama administration. Obama, of course, famously launched his political career in the home of confessed communist terrorist Bill Ayers, whose Castro-backed terror group, the Weather Underground, murdered police officers and bombed multiple federal facilities. According to the FBI’s Larry Grathwohl, who infiltrated the terrorist group, the Weathermen, as they were called, were hoping to round up and exterminate millions of “counter-revolutionaries” with help from the regimes in Cuba, Moscow, Beijing, and more. Now that is violent extremism. But that is not the sort of extremism the Obama FBI wants teachers to seek out.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to shower weapons and money on violent extremist dictatorships and U.S.-designated terror groups across the Middle East and worldwide. From a deliberate plan to create an Islamist principality in Eastern Syria (now known as ISIS) to unlawfully supporting multiple communist and Islamist terror groups officially designated as banned terrorist organizations by the U.S. government, Obama has violated multiple federal terror laws under various pretexts.

Ironically, the FBI’s definition of “violent extremism” in the document —  “encouraging, condoning, justifying, or supporting the commission of a violent act to achieve political, ideological, religious, social or economic goals” — could quite properly be applied to dozens of actions perpetrated by the Obama administration, maybe more. From arming jihadists in Syria and bombing Libya to smithereens in an alliance with al-Qaeda without congressional approval, to admittedly arming the communist PKK, al-Qaeda, and even Mexican drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious, Obama has flagrantly and repeatedly defied federal terror laws. An everyday citizen would be in prison for a long time.of domenstic terrorist

But instead of investigating those clear, admitted federal crimes, the FBI apparently prefers to focus on schoolkids who question government or disagree with homosexuality.

The FBI does pretend to be inclusive in its search for extremists in schools. It claims to be looking for movements “including but not limited to white supremacists, animal rights and eco-terrorists, and anti-government or radical separatist groups.” So-called “violations,” the document continues, include “hate-based activities.” It was not clear when the FBI imagines that “hate” became a crime. And while it may sound nice to persecute haters, the document itself suggests that the sort of “hate” the Obama administration is seeking out involves, among others elements, “biases” against “sexual orientation.”

In short, Christians with a biblical worldview who disagree with the notion of a homosexual “marriage” are in the cross-hairs. The far-left Southern Poverty Law Center, which praises communist terrorist Bill Ayers on its website and works with tentacles of the Obama administration, regularly labels mainstream Christian groups as “hate groups” for their religious beliefs on the sanctity of marriage. And the FBI document is packed with SPLC-style rhetoric, even going so far as to attack the influence of families and parents on their children. It says, for example, that the beliefs of adults who embrace “extremist ideologies” can “permeate family norms, oftentimes influencing children.” If you disagree with Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America, they are looking at you. Aside from parental influence, “unobserved space” and the Internet are both key targets.

When students do display views and attitudes the Obama administration dislikes, the FBI calls on schools to create “intervention” plans in conjunction with federal and state agencies. “An intervention cadre should contain professionals from the local community representing multiple disciplines such as mental health, social workers, law enforcement, school resource officers, faith-based organizations, and/or crisis intervention teams,” the document states. Schools should also report children to law enforcement.

The news that the FBI was conscripting teachers in their hunt for “extremist” children made headlines worldwide. In the United States, across media outlets ranging from Alternet on the far-left to alternative liberty-minded sources such as Infowars, commentators slammed the FBI’s scheme as an assault on civil liberties and common sense. Even media outlets backed and controlled by authoritarian-minded governments — Kremlin-run news services, for example, and even media controlled by Iran’s mullahs — seized on the document to paint the U.S. government as increasingly unhinged and totalitarian.

Critics from across the political spectrum also blasted the FBI plot. Anti-“Islamophobia” author Arun Kundnani, for example, slammed the government for drawing on “the junk science of radicalization models” and noted that the document “dangerously blurs the distinction between legitimate ideological expression and violent criminal actions.” ACLU staff attorney Hugh Handeyside with the left-wing outfit’s national security project, meanwhile, said that “broadening the definition of violent extremism to include a range of belief-driven violence underscores that the FBI is diving head-first into community spying.” “Framing this conduct as ‘concerning behavior’ doesn’t conceal the fact that the FBI is policing students’ thoughts and trying to predict the future based on those thoughts,” Handeyside added. Kurt Nimmo at Infowars, citing whistle-blowers from the intelligence community, highlighted the parallels between the increasingly extreme tactics and machinations of the U.S. government and those used by the brutal communist dictatorship that terrorized East Germany for generations.

Even more extreme “extremism” scheming is happening in the United Kingdom, where authorities are telling teachers to report students with negative views on homosexuality to police and social services. More recently, U.K. authorities, as part of their war on so-called “non-violent extremism,” launched a crackdown on homeschooling families and even Christian Sunday schools, which must now register with the government. Prime Minster David Cameron even asked the United Nations — primarily composed of extremist non-democratic governments of various varieties, such as communist, socialist, Islamist, and military dictatorships — to help wage a global jihad on what he called “non-violent extremism.” Obama and the UN teamed up to launch a planetary war on “ideologies,” too.

In the United States, virtually everyone with an opinion has been declared a potential terrorist or extremist by the Obama administration in recent years. The U.S. Defense Department was even caught teaching U.S. troops that Evangelicals, Catholics, and Orthodox Jews were “religious extremists” like al-Qaeda and Hamas. And now, the discredited SPLC, widely criticized as an “anti-Christian hate group” or a money-making scam, is working with Obama’s new domestic “terror” czar to target conservatives, Christians, libertarians, constitutionalists, and others the SPLC hates. The SPLC’s propaganda was also cited in 2012 by a convicted anti-Christian terrorist who attempted to slaughter employees at the pro-family Family Research Council.

Buried within all of the extreme rhetoric urging schools to wage war on ideologies the government does not like, there may be some information that might be useful, perhaps. However, the document paints a picture of a federal government that is totally out of control, suggesting that assaults on liberty, privacy, thought crimes, and people who disagree with out-of-control government will soon accelerate without concerted action to rein in Washington, D.C.

Schools and all Americans should reject the Obama administration’s fear-mongering and extremism. Instead, parents and concerned citizens should work to educate others about the dangers of totalitarian government, and hold officials accountable to the U.S. Constitution they all swore to uphold.

“Beheading is planned” threat against Rhode Island schoolchildren


Obamacare

Written by Allen West on October 10, 2014

http://allenbwest.com/2014/10/beheading-planned-threat-rhode-island-schoolchildren/

headless_doll_by_objekt_stockYesterday we shared the video about the Harvard University students who believe America is a greater global threat than ISIS. As you know, Harvard is located in Massachusetts. Maybe those mindless lemmings should read about what just happened south of them in Rhode Island. Let me try to give them a hint — ever heard of Beslan, Russia? Of course those empty vessels of progressive socialist indoctrination haven’t. It would be far too much to ask of them to have a clue about the real global threat, Islamo-fascism and jihadism. So here’s a little taste.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that, “Police in Rhode Island said they received a letter that contains threats to behead children in the state. The letter specifically threatens elementary school students, according to WPRO. Col. Steven McCartney tells WPRO-AM the threat specified that “beheading is planned.” He called the nature of the threat targeting children in Warwick, Cranston, and Johnston “chilling.”

“There was a specific mention of elementary schools in this letter, the other thing which was the specific type of threat, which was beheading, is planned,” McCartney told WPRO.”

Imperial Islamic President ObamaOf course, I suppose these Harvard students have already forgotten about the Chechen Tsarnaev brothers’ heinous attack in Boston last year – and have no idea it was Chechen Muslims who carried out the attack against the school children in Beslan.

You see, this is the depraved nature of the enemy, which we just continue to dismiss as we witness the cultural jihadist apologists find it easier to blame America — or even Christians — rather than place the spotlight where it belongs.

We reported here how the former Imam of the Oklahoma City mosque where beheader Alton Nolen attended is now at the Boston Islamic center (which the Tsarnaev boys attended). Trend analysis – that’s all I am presenting — and we must take the threats seriously before another incident of “workplace violence” or worse, “schoolyard violence” occurs.

The Beacon says “the threat was sent anonymously through the mail, but police are taking it very seriously. Some parents have decided to keep their children out of school due to the threat as well. Police are trying to reassure those parents of their children’s safety. “The intent of the Warwick Police Department is to allow the education of the students to continue safely,” McCartney told WPRO. Cranston Supt. Judith Lundsten says recess will be canceled and students will not wait outside but will enter immediately.”

Our precious American children are suffering from a mysterious respiratory illness that magically appeared after the Obama administration allowed countless illegal alien children to be dispersed and enrolled in our schools without any medical screening. And now we have an anonymous threat against their safety in a most brutal manner — and intent. While Obama has a problem defining his strategic objective in combating Islamo-fascism, the jihadists and terrorists know exactly what their strategic objective is — to terrorize our country by inspiring “lone wolf” jihadist attacks.

You see, the problem we have in America is these cultural jihadist apologists like far left progressive socialist nutcase Eric Michael Dyson who presents an unfathomable case of relativism. He says Islam is ancient and honorable and we ignore the Christian terrorism all around us. Just watch this little video exchange between Dyson and his guest James Peterson who makes sure to top Dyson’s stupidity by saying that Christians are just as homophobic as Muslims in the Middle East.

It’s right up there with ol’ Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation who believes Christians professing their faith and witnessing in the military are guilty of sedition and should be court-martialed. Where in God’s name do they find these people? Harvard, I guess.

Wonder why we’re losing against ISIS? Because we can’t even admit they are indeed an enemy, an Islamic terrorist organization. We refuse to see the violent nature of Islam – it’s just a man-caused disaster and workplace violence. Everyone rushes to defend Islam, why?angry 05

But worse, why do the far left progressive socialists find it easier to join forces with the Islamo-fascists and attack Christians? When ISIS gave Iraqi Christians their time-honored tradition of choice — convert, be subjugated, or be killed — no one on the left stood up and vehemently condemned this action. What they did was try to dismiss and apologize, or declare this wasn’t part of Islam, just something ISIS came up with.

Well, hate to burst your bubble, but beheadings were commanded by Mohammed, with the first massive beheadings at the Battle of the Trenches circa 628 AD against the Banu Quaraya tribe. And it was his letter to Byzantine Emperor Heraclius soon thereafter when he offered the three choices to the Christian kingdom. Folks, you can find this in the Hadiths — the traditions of Mohammed — and he is deemed the “perfect man” by Muslims, that is, practicing Muslims.

Stop the damned apologizing and attacking Christians in some warped relativist argument to make yourself comfortable — the enemy is within the gates.

School Video: I Pledge to Serve Obama

School Video: I Pledge to Serve Obama 

By Todd Starnes

A Wisconsin school district is apologizing after middle school students were shown a video that featured Hollywood celebrities pledging to be a servant to President Obama.

“I pledge to be a servant to our president,” Demi Moore said in the “I Pledge,” video shown Wednesday at Hudson Middle School.

The video was part of a number of Peace One Day activities, an international event to build peace awareness. The students were also invited to make their own pledges after viewing the video.  (SEE VIDEO HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=51kAw4OTlA0 )

But there was a big problem – the video conveyed the idea that Americans should serve the presidency instead of our elected officials serving the citizens, Fox9 News in Minneapolis reported.

“I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama,” Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis said.

Those statements led the middle school and the Hudson School District to issue apologies.

“We apologize for any part of the video that was offensive to students, their families and staff,” Principal Dan Koch said in a prepared statement. “We respect the Office of the President of the United States but like all of our other elected officials – that office serves each of us as well.”

The principal also made an announcement to students explaining why the video was inappropriate.

Local residents expressed their outrage over the video on social networking websites.

“That is the creepiest and scariest video I have ever seen,” one reader wrote. “They ruined a good message by making it left wing.”

Superintendent Mary Bowen-Eggebraaten said the video will not be used in the district again.

“Unfortunately, the video also had a political slant,” she said. “The district is non-partisan and does not endorse the political messages found in this video.”

While the school district said showing the video was a mistake, they said the purpose of the event was to raise student awareness and encourage involvement “in taking positive action in their schools and communities.”

“We hope that the use of the video does not overshadow the value of the positive message of this event for our middle school students,” the superintendent said.
