We’ve heard a lot about parents demanding the removal of inappropriate books from schools lately — particularly those depicting sex acts between minors and promoting hatred of police — a trend which will likely escalate as we get into the school year. And as that trend escalates, attacks on these same parents for being “intolerant” will likely escalate as well. Continue reading

Benson: Schools For Gradual And Subtle Revolution
One thing you have to admit about the Illuminists, communists, and the One World Government crowd, they are patient as well as enduring. If they have an agenda in a specific area they will diligently work to promote that agenda even if they realize they will not see results in their lifetime. This is one thing we could learn from them. Too often patriotic and conservative people just toss in the towel if they don’t see results on any given project in the first 90 days. Continue reading
Benson: Public School Revolutionaries At Work!
Just yesterday I read an article by Lee Duigon on News With Views about the continuing leftist revolution that goes on daily in those government indoctrination centers we refer to as public schools. He referred to two public school systems, one in Boston, the other in Sacramento, California.
Of the Boston school system he wrote: “An ‘academic dean’ in the Boston Public School system has pleaded guilty to racketeering. One Shaun Harrison, 63 years old, shot a student. It turns out Mr. Harrison belonged to the Kings street gang and was using his position in the schools to recruit more members for the gang.” Continue reading
Benson: Public Schools Are Humanist Seminaries
Seeing that this coming Monday will be Independence Day, I had a thought. What a wonderful time it would be if American Christians decided to declare their independence from the Humanist seminaries we call public schools. Because that’s what these “schools” really are. Continue reading
New Teacher Licensing Requirement Include Demonstrating ‘Marxist” Views to Keep Job
Our public school system continues to be corrupted by liberalism and Marxism. Some states have taken steps to prevent it, while others have embraced it and are even attempting to mandate it.
By spreading radical liberal propaganda, the National School Board has already lost almost half of the country. Continue reading
Benson: Are Public Schools Part Of The Radical Environment Movement?
In his book Law and Liberty the late Rev. R, J. Rushdoony noted, on page 171, that:
“Socialism and communism presuppose that their system represents the true order of the ages and is the answer to man’s problems. This assumption is one that assumes man’s problems to be not spiritual but material, not sin but environment. Change man’s environment and you will then remake man, it is held. The answer to man’s problems is therefore not the spiritual regeneration of man by Jesus Christ but the reorganization of society by the scientific socialist state.”
I submit that the public school system falls squarely into that catagory… Continue reading
Parent uncovers secret-keeping school policy in Show Me State
Citing secretive public school polices across Missouri, an education watchdog is warning parents in every state to wake up, pay attention, and save their children from far-left wokeness.
Andy Wells, who leads the Missouri chapter of No Left Turn in Education, is demanding answers after learning public schools are hiding behind a state-approved policy that allows teachers and counselors to hide private conversations with students from their nosy parents. Continue reading
Duigon: Suing Your Schools
Why sue your local public school district? That’s what the superintendent of schools in Harrisonburg, VA, is wondering. Like, what’s the matter with you people?
Chuck Schumer once said “The government is the only thing we all belong to.” Apparently the superintendent takes that literally. The schools are government schools, therefore the kiddies belong to the school, not the parents. Continue reading
Benson: Does Big Brother Want To Outlaw Homeschooling?
Well, yes, as a matter of fact he does. Way too many children are now being homeschooled and thereby deprived of the leftist indoctrination offered as standard fare in their local public schools. Such an occurrence has dire ramifications for the leftist throng among us. These homeschooled children, if their parents homeschool them long enough, may grow up to think independently and thereby ask embarrassing questions Big Brother’s Educrat minions don’t want asked – and we just can’t have that. So homeschooling has to go and the kids involved in it need to be forced back into public schools where they can be taught to embrace the tenets of leftist thought for 6-7 hours each day – in all subjects. Nothing else will suffice. Continue reading
‘The Way in Which Wars Start’
Randi Weingarten warns Parental Rights Bills could have severe consequences
American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said on a recent podcast that GOP-backed parental rights legislation could have alarming results and even suggested that such laws are how “wars start.”
During an appearance on a podcast with radio host Rick Smith earlier this month, Weingarten criticized parental rights bills like the one recently signed into law in Florida.
“This notion – we’ve been very lucky in America, and we in some ways live in a bubble for a long time.” This is propaganda. This is misinformation. This is the way in which wars start. This is the way in which hatred starts.”
How Much More ‘Sex Ed’ Can We Stand?
We’ve been warning you for years and years that public education’s not your friend, it undermines your family, and it’s poison for your children.
Most people didn’t listen. It was always so convenient just to pack Johnny off to school every weekday and forget about it. That’s what too many of us did.
Mixing children and sex got to be a thing for “educators.” They can’t let it alone. There’s always got to be more. And we ignored it – until King COVID came along, closed the schools, subjected the kids to “remote learning” via their computers… and parents finally saw and heard what these schools were, um, “teaching” their children. The result was a fourfold increase in homeschooling. Nowhere near enough, but you have to start somewhere.
The people of New Jersey are public schooling’s latest victims. They were shocked last week when the state Board of Education suddenly announced a new “comprehensive sex education” curriculum, to go into effect this fall, featuring the usual potpourri of gender identity, sex-change, “gay” relationships, all seasoned with gender-neutral pronouns. Continue reading
Duigon: The Evolutionary Fallacy
“New! Improved!” How many 1950s TV commercials featured that slogan?
Welcome to the Evolutionary Fallacy, the faith statement that anything “new! Improved!” has just got to be better than anything that’s old – and that the whole universe, minus any divine guidance, is always naturally evolving toward perfection. Always.
This is the straw that stirs the Far Left’s drink. It justifies anything and everything they do, as long as it’s (ahem!) “new.” In fact, the more shockingly new it is, the better they like it.
Here’s some of the new stuff they’ve brought into our schools just recently. Newer and better all the time. Continue reading
Another play on words?
Yes, Virginia, there is miss-education.
There was no contest, no interview, and no talent show. Like all the tiny Gen y and z larvae, Miss Education won the trophy for just showing up.
So are our children.
Let’s begin with disclosure.
You should all know by now that I am a married man and am best defined as an Objectivist-Libertarian; my religious learnings are mine but decidedly conservative. I find unusual sexual proclivities like homosexuality personally objectionable. While I don’t care about what happens between consenting partners, I am vehemently opposed to exposing any non-adult to what I consider deviant tendencies. Continue reading
Benson: The “Head Teacher”– Just Another Socialist
It’s amazing what you can find out by doing a little research. Sometimes it isn’t all that hard. Some of this stuff is literally right in front of us if we just take a little trouble to see it. I’ve been writing lately about the issue of education, teachers unions, and such. Over this past weekend I did a little research on Albert Shanker, who had been the head of the American Federation of Teachers for many years. According to Wikipedia, Shanker’s family were originally Russian Jewish immigrants who ended up in New York. The family had strong political vires, were pro-union, and followed the socialism of Norman Thomas. Continue reading
Defending American Democracy Requires We Start by Crushing the Public School Weirdos
If you think pierced mutants with blue hair and gender confusion have some sort of right to leverage their position as public school teachers to groom your kids with racist Marxism and sexual confusion, you hate democracy. Schools were not established so that narcissistic strange-os with galaxy-sized daddy issues could work out their personal psychodramas using our children’s minds as props. They were established to teach our kids to read, write, do some math, and be useful citizens. And that’s what we, the People, want.
And we, the People, get to make the decision about what gets taught in our classrooms. Continue reading
Elementary School Children Invited to LGBT Clubs, Shown Pornographic Images in Class
The ‘slippery slope’ theory has been used frequently to explain the rapid rise in licentiousness and decline of sexual morality in American society. Many Americans point to the radical change in societal norms over the course of just the past few years, to prove the theory is anything but a fallacy.
Just a short time ago, even former President Barack Obama publicly opposed gay marriage — as did the majority of Americans — which is likely why political strategists advised Obama to take the position he did.
When Obama made his first public comments indicating his support for gay couples to marry in 2012, it was viewed as a pretty controversial political stand. Today, the media outlets like the Washington Post are advocating for more ‘kink’ at pride parades so children can see it, and drag queens are twerking in front of kindergarteners.
Within just a few years it has become ‘controversial’ to not only oppose same-sex marriage but everything else sexual liberation has led to. Continue reading
Hideous CRT Experiment at an Elementary School Forces Children to Watch Graphic Video
Almost everyone has heard at least a little news about the liberal left’s crazy emphasis on our children’s education. There is new strategy to teach racism based on what they call Critical Race Theory (CRT). CRT instills a sense of guilt in young children because of their skin color.
It tries to inherently convince impressionable minds that our nation is bad, that they are bad. The core tenet of this radical theory is that people are either oppressed or oppressors. The entire foundation of this insane belief is based on the color of a person’s skin.
There is no middle ground. This is an attempt by the liberal left to brainwash our children. This is a sickening ambition that has many parents furious. However, in one elementary school in San Antonio, Texas, their methods became abusive. Continue reading
Public Schools – “for the salvation of the state”
Often public school officials brag loudly that “they do it all for the kids.” Some of them may honestly believe that. It’s what they have been taught to say and if they just say it long enough it becomes fact in their minds and they just parrot the line to (they hope) believing parents and they come off sounding like paragons of self-sacrificing virtue. If you have ever witnessed striking public school teachers in Chicago marching in the streets asking for more money just a few days before school starts in the Fall you know it’s a lot of horse puckey. If you have ever seen the wage scales of teachers in some cities you realize self-sacrifice has nothing whatever to do with it in many cases.
Samuel Blumenfeld, in his book “NEA–Trojan Horse in American Education” has lowered the boom on all this self-sacrifice twaddle. He has told us, on page 13, that “It was in 1829 that Josiah Holbrook launched the Lyceum Movement to organize the educators of America into a powerful lobby for public education. Was Holbrook a covert Owenite (disciple of socialist Robert Owen)? Circumstantial evidence seems to indicate that he was. And if the socialists decided to further their cause by working through the instrument of public education, we can then understand why the system had such appeal to socialist bias for as long as anyone can remember. Indeed, public education was to become the socialists primary instrument for promoting socialism.”
Did you get that? Public education was a major vehicle for promoting socialism. Chew on that one awhile and you find that all this self-sacrifice stuff ain’t worth doodly-squat! Continue reading
Benson: Socialist Teachers Unions
The National Education Association meets every year in a big convention in some big city and scads of teachers show up for this big event. This is their one big chance every year to tell us peons what we should support, what we should hate, and how we should live. Continue reading
Duigon: How Our School Boards Turned Against Us
When I was a newspaper reporter in the 1970s, I covered several local boards of education. Board members were ordinary people who wanted to make sure their communities provided a decent education for their children. By and large, it was a calm, peaceful, humdrum process.
There was the occasional controversy. Maybe an old school had to be closed, because it wasn’t worth the money to keep repairing it, and a new one built to replace it. This could lead to some pretty lively public meetings. Or maybe some “expert” down in Trenton would recommend the schools provide sex education curricula. Then the parents would show up to the next meeting and gently persuade the board not even to try doing this; and that would be the end of it.
Two forces rose up to change this… Continue reading
