Benson: Leftist Public Schools Think They Own Your Children

Recently someone sent me a copy of the Whistleblower magazine, which is published by World Net Daily (580 E Street, P.0. Box 100, Hawthorne, Nevada 89415-0100). I’d heard of this magazine but never seen it until now. The copy I was sent was the April, 2023 issue and all of it dealt with what goes on in public schools today and none of it is fun reading by any means. But then, what goes on in government schools in our day is not exactly fun reading either–not fun, but necessary to know.

The lead article, by David Kupelian, describes how public schools seemed to most of us during the 1950s, a morning prayer, some patriotic song and then the day’s classes, which although not perfect, were mild compared to what the kids get shoved at them today. Mr. Kupelian notes: “That was then. Today, what we still euphemistically called ‘public schools’ – remember, ‘public’ means ‘government’ – have been transmogrified into far-left ideological, political, and religious indoctrination centers aimed at reprogramming and transforming America’s children… Briefly step inside today’s ‘hallowed halls of learning,’ where most American children spend a major part of their young lives, and consider the dystopian reality of ‘public education’ in 2023…Children increasingly are programmed, via various anti-American curricula – including the notorious ‘1619 Project’ K-12 program already in use in at least 4,500 U.S. public schools – to loathe and feel ashamed of their own country as white supremacist, racist, and genocidal. They’re indoctrinated to regard all white people as intrinsically racist, or at least unjust beneficiaries of ‘white privilege’ and therefore still personally guilty for America’s deeply entrenched ‘systemic racism.’ That of course is the central premise of Marxist ‘critical race theory,’ which proposes to solve the ‘problem’ of America by dismantling and restructuring all of the major institutions that comprise what is, in reality, the least racist, most successful multi-ethnic nation in world history.”

I’ve never forgotten what a Christian missionary from Africa told me years ago. He said blacks are the most “ethno-centric” people in the world. For them, everything is about race – almost no exceptions. And here we have the most race-conscious people in the world busily lecturing us whites about “racism.” I submit there is something wrong with this picture and our kids in public schools are being lied to and racially intimidated if they show any intent toward rejecting that lie. They also lecture us about whites in the slave trade, but conveniently omit any mention of the black African chiefs that sold slaves to white folks. That’s the part of the equation you simply don’t need to know, and what’s currently taught in public schools is guaranteed to keep you and your kids unaware.

Kupelian also noted: “Frequent news stories document the wild LGBT grooming craze now sweeping the nation’s public schools. Openly activist LGBT teachers post recruitment videos of themselves on social media platforms like TikTok, their greatest desire being to shepherd new young recruits into the fold. Then, to complete the job, there are the after school ‘support clubs,’ or ‘GSAs’ – formerly called ‘gay-straight alliances,’ but more recently, as the transgender craze has metastasized, rechristened ‘gender and sexuality alliances’–which in reality are straight-up, in-school recruitment hubs.” Then there are books in the school library like Gender Queer, “which graphically depicts multiple lesbian sex acts…” I won’t go into the rest of the quote here, but you get the idea.

This kind of thing was part of what Parents in Kanawha County, West Virginia protested against in the public schools almost 50 years ago now – and they shut the school system there down for a month over it. So this is not a new problem in the public schools – and the governmental response to that protest was to, literally, beat it into submission. So the feds want this spiritual offal in public schools! So don’t delude yourself into thinking that if it’s in your kids’ public school you will join the PTA and get rid of it. That ain’t gonna happen!

In the same magazine there is an article by Patrice Lewis about parents who go to public school board meetings to protest what school boards are allowing in schools. Most of us recall the video from a couple years ago where a parent in Virginia was tackled and arrested by police for protesting over the fact that his daughter had, basically, been raped in school and the administration of the school sought to cover it up because the rapist was, supposedly, a transsexual and they didn’t want to antagonize the transsexual community. It raised such a fuss that they were finally forced to admit what they did and the perpetrator transferred to another school, where, if I recall correctly, he/she did the same thing. This is what your school boards do – they hide the truth from parents because they realize that if enough parents wake up to what really goes on in public school, they will begin to take their kids out of them and the school district won’t get as much federal money.

Patrice Lewis saluted the parents who did go and protest, but she also said: “Yet, it’s a losing battle. Why? Because public education is hopeless. It is saturated–top to bottom, in and out, coast to coast–by liberals, and liberals are going to do what they want, no matter how fierce the push-back from those stupid, irritating, ignorant, knuckle-dragging parents,” She continued: “But it’s water off a duck’s back. Facts don’t matter to liberals, only feelings. Who cares if the children under their trust suffer permanent and life-altering damage? Who cares if minority children can’t read, write, or do math? Push the ideology!” And that’s what public schools are all about–pushing the leftist ideology and making compliant little leftists out of your kids, whether you want that or not!

If you want your kid programmed to be a little socialist (something I do not recommend) then leave them in public school and you will get your fondest wish. But if you want something better for your kids, then remove them from the public schools and run for cover! There are all kinds of homeschooling programs out there. Ron Paul has one. The John Birch Society has one and some outfits with on-campus Christian schools also have homeschool programs. Get on the internet and do some homework. the information is out there.
