(Above is an excerpt from a quiz given to students in Walton County, Georgia.)
IT is becoming increasingly clear to American parents that the kiddies are being captured via two intersecting anti-American thrusts: the reds and the greens. Even so, a preponderance have no clue how to change the calculus.
INCONTESTABLY, one side couldn’t operate without the cooperative efforts of “the other”, no pun intended. Mind you, they hardly slow down after America’s school children graduate from high school. Not at all. Rather, they pick up steam across America’s college campuses. In other words, at the same time that the red front is busy tarring whites as the “privileged” devil in need of penance and atonement – thus, deconstructing the “evils” of western civilization – green (Islamist) fronts are busy taking over the campuses as well. The proofs are beyond reproach.
CONSIDER the following as mere “taste testings”:
The 2016 conference will feature a variety of speakers and numerous breakout sessions, all of which come at an additional charge. On two of the four days, participants will have the opportunity to spend six hours attending workshops of their choosing, including several tailored for middle-school and high-school students in attendance. More than 20 workshops will be featured at the event, covering topics of sex, race, and gender.
One workshop, titled “Self Care and Healing as Change Agents,” will provide attendees with a safe-space to share the emotional burden that comes from being a social justice warrior.
“Feeling exhausted, burned out from working to dismantle racism and white supremacy, and other forms of oppression in organizations, groups, and individuals? Still deeply committed to creating greater equity, inclusion and social justice in society and in organizations, yet finding yourself, at times, too weary or overwhelmed to make meaningful change? We all deserve spaces to heal, refuel, and re-commit to our vision and goals,” the workshop description states.
Another workshop will be geared exclusively towards middle-school and high-school students to allow them to “engage in meaningful dialogue about white privilege, white supremacy, and methods of breaking down systems of oppression.”
Other workshops will explore topics such as:
–“Racial Justice As A Spiritual Imperative: Re-imagining the Power Of Our Deepest Knowing In Our Racial Justice Work: This institute is designed for those who have been engaging in racial justice work for some time and want to look more deeply into the aspects of the work that touch our spirits, souls, core beliefs, etc.”
–“Blackness, Whiteness, & Womynness: Embracing the Intersectionality of Race and Gender Practice While Building Equitable and Just Relationships Toward Effective Anti-Racist [sic]: As we strive to build cross-racial anti-racist partnerships, what are the challenges we face that may prevent us from working together effectively? This institute will draw on our experiences as a Black cisgender womyn and a white cisgender womyn partnering as anti-racist educators and administrators with a commitment to re-imagining equity and justice in our relationships as womyn.” [The misspelling of “woman” are intentional; a way to excise “man” from the word — ed.]
–“White Followership – Centering People of Color and Building Effective White Practices for Racial Justice & Systemic Change: Informed by current movements for racial justice led by people of color, this participant centered, action-oriented and reflective workshop will introduce and apply the white followership framework.”
According to the conference website, at least 1,500 people attend the event every year, including students, teachers, and professionals. The conference, which lasts four days, has been held annually since 1999.
OKEY dokey, that’s the red side’s poisoning. Now, onto the green side:
To understand just how depraved today’s college campuses are, compare the treatment of two professors – one defending a Western, pro-American democracy (Israel) and the other suspected of supporting this century’s most gruesome Islamist terror organization, the Islamic State (“ISIS”).
Julio Pino, an associate history professor at Kent State University, is under investigation by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security for potential ties to ISIS.
Pino’s jihadist leanings and virulently anti-Israel rants on social media include possible threats against the U.S. government. In 2002, he praised a teenage Palestinian suicide bomber who had killed two people in Jerusalem, saying that the teen had “died a martyr’s death in occupied Jerusalem, Palestine.”
In a 2014 open letter to “academic friends of Israel,” Pino published an unhinged and anti-Semitic invective: “I hold you directly responsible for the murder of over 1,400 Palestinian children, women and elderly civilians over the past month…[w]hile The Chosen drain the blood of innocents without apologies you hide behind the mask of academic objectivity, nobility of research and the reward of teaching to foreign youth – in a segregated university, of course.” Pino closed the letter with: “Jihad until victory!”
Despite decades of hateful and extremist rants, Kent State reportedly gave Pino multiple awards, including the Faculty Excellence Award in 2010, 2003, 2000 and 1996, along with the Professional Excellence Award in 1999 and 1997.
Kent State remains comfortable with him in the classroom despite the over-the-top rhetoric and news of a federal investigation. The Kent Stater, the university’s student newspaper, provided him with a video platform to defend himself, and the editorial board wrote that “it is too soon to make a judgment on the investigation…”
Contrast Pino’s case with Connecticut College’s treatment of professor Andrew Pessin for defending Israel in its 2014 war with Hamas (a State Department-designated terrorist organization).
Over half a year after Pessin’s Facebook post critiquing Hamas, the student newspaper at Connecticut College launched a surprise character assassination by publishing three editorials condemning Pessin (including on the front page), without giving him a chance to defend himself against libelous accusations of racism.
In a reportedly packed auditorium Connecticut College President Katherine Bergeron said that she was “disappointed by the language” of Pessin’s post, which “seemed to show poor judgment,” and she praised “the valor of the students who responded to these incidents by exercising their own right of free speech with confidence and intellectual acuity.” These statements by Bergeron (as of this writing) continue to appear on the college’s web site, long after a Washington Post column cited available evidence to make a compelling case that the allegations against Pessin were politically motivated lies….read the whole thing…and so much more….
WITH said backgrounder in mind, this site repeatedly pointed to the dangers at hand, and the recitation of the Shahada was mentioned more than once. This is one sampling:
THE fact that enough patriots understand what it means to teach the “Shahada” in America’s schools – an ABSOLUTE violation of the First Amendment, the “Separation of Church and State”, its intent and function derived from the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause – is a potent signal of things to come.
The Shahada (Arabic: الشهادة aš-šahādah audio (help. · info), “the testimony”; aš-šahādatān (الشَهادَتانْ, “the two testimonials”); also Kalima Shahadat (كلمة الشهادة, “the testimonial word”)), is an Islamic creed declaring belief in the oneness of God and the acceptance of Muhammad as God’s prophet.
IN plain parlance, a tipping point has arrived: Keep your paws off our kiddies – or else!!
After a teacher at a Virginia high school handed out a bizarre ‘geography’ homework assignment that asked students to practice calligraphy using an Islamic religious creed (Shahada), such an angry backlash flooded in that it prompted officials to close every single school in the county as a safety precaution.
“While there has been no specific threat of harm to students, schools and school offices will be closed Friday, December 18, 2015,” Augusta County Schools said. Extracurricular activities were shut down Thursday afternoon
When the world geography class at Riverheads High School in Staunton rolled around to the subject of major world religions, homework on Islam asked students to copy religious calligraphy. It read:
“Here is the shahada, the Islamic statement of faith and devotion to Islam, written in Arabic. In the space below, try copying it by hand. This should give you an idea of the artistic complexity of calligraphy.”
The illustrative classical Arabic phrase was the basic statement in Islam. It translated to: “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah.”
SO, from Virginia to Maryland to Tennessee to all points in between, the core of Common Core is full steam ahead.
A Maryland high school punished a student for refusing to profess faith in Islam, gave her failing grades for a series of assignments that violated her Christian beliefs then threatened her father with arrest for complaining, a federal lawsuit charges.
The suit was filed in U.S. District Court against the Charles County Public Schools in La Plata, Maryland, its board of education, Principal Evelyn Arnold and Vice Principal Shannon Morris by the Thomas More Law Center.
A spokeswoman for the district told WND that officials were aware of the issue but said Arnold and Morris would not be commenting.
Plaintiffs are Marine Corps veteran John Kevin Wood and his wife, Melissa, who “refuse[d] to allow their teenage daughter to be subjected to Islamic indoctrination and propaganda in her high school world history class.”
The lawsuit charges that the defendants’ “curriculum, practices, policies, actions, procedures, and customs promote the Islamic faith by requiring students to profess the five pillars if Islam.”
The students, the complaint says, were required to “write out and confess the shahada, the Islamic profession of faith.”
The lawsuit charges that school officials concealed the curriculum by using two separate history textbooks, one of which contained the Islamic teachings and which students were required to leave at school. The other, which did not contain the teachings, was allowed to be taken home, the complaint explains. The school also excised the Islamic teachings from the course syllabus….read the whole thing….
WHAT’S to be done? Well, Tennessee’s template is more than instructive, and its basis should be mirrored THROUGHOUT the U.S.
A bill has been introduced in the Tennessee Legislature which will end indoctrination of non-Muslim students with Islam in public school classrooms. Not widely known, ‘Common Core’ programs, funded by the oil-rich Arab state of Qatar, put great emphasis on teaching about Islam while ignoring all the other religions. House Bill 1418 provides that the teaching of any religion in any public school classroom is specifically outlawed.
Schools have been engaging in various practices which are geared to teach non-Muslim children to practice the Muslim faith. Children are being forced to recite the Five Pillars of Islam.
They are being compelled to engage in role-playing which has included dressing girls in Burkas (the mask which Muslim women are required to wear or face a penalty of death by stoning) and making the children answer the calls to Muslim prayers. Children are being subjected to the requirement that they must respect the Flag of the Islamic State and Al Qaeda.
HB 1418 will turn the tide on such classroom practices. School officials and teachers have apparently forgotten about or chosen to ignore the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution which already prohibits the government, whether federal or state, from doing any act which endorses or supports any religion. HB 1418 will restate the obvious language of the Establishment Clause as well as provide sanctions for violations.
The bill provides that academic courses in History, Geography and Social Studies will continue as before and that references to religion in secular lessons will not violate the law. The bill only prohibits any practice which is directed at converting anyone to a particular religion.
Should the bill pass into law, Muslims will not be able to use local school officials as government funded proselytizers.
It is a sad day indeed when government officials (in this case teachers and school administrators) are so ignorant of the First Amendment to the Constitution that the legislature must re-educate them.
One of the foundations of this great country is that the state must completely avoid establishing a state religion. Since the state always has the ability to compel obedience to its edicts with force, a state religion would lead to the destruction of the people’s consciences and morale, especially with a religion such as Islam which advocates violence towards all non-believers.
HB 1418 is a long overdue step which one hopes will be duplicated in the other 49 states.
The State of Tennessee owes a debt of gratitude to the parents of the State’s schoolchildren whose efforts to stop the indoctrination of their children led directly to the introduction of HB 1418.
MOST significantly, despite everything else, the main thrust is the absolute violation of Church and State due to the above indictments. It is held:
McCollum v. Board of Education Dist. 71, 333 U.S. 203 (1948)
Court finds religious instruction in public schools a violation of the establishment clause and therefore unconstitutional.
Public school teachers rightly function as important authority figures in the lives of their students. But, under the Constitution, their authority may not extend to matters of religious belief. According to the Supreme Court, the First Amendment requires that public school students never be given the impression that their school officially sanctions religion in general or prefers a specific faith in particular. Further, students must never feel coerced by peer or public pressure into adhering to the dictates of any religion.
SANS a scintilla of a doubt, even in today’s Orwellian universe, any school/teacher which violates this inviolate law must be held liable to the nth degree. Thus, parents of public school children are obligated to serve as watchdogs over the runaway apparatus which passes for today’s public school (mis)education – one school, one district, at a time!! If not, the price to be paid will be too high to bear. Guaranteed.
