Do The Leftists Control Public Education In This Country? You’d Better Believe It!

by Al Benson Jr.

Just a couple days ago I read an excellent article by David Risselada, published by Western Free Press  on 1/24/17. Among other things, Mr. Risselada said: “Finally, after eight years of governance by a left wing radical intent on turning our nation upside down, a new President is at the helm. That’s a perfect description of what Comrade Obama did during his tenure in office. Mr. Risselada went on to comment briefly on some of Trump’s cabinet picks, both good and questionable, and then he came to Betsy DeVos, who is Mr. Trump’s choice to head the Department of Education–the department both us and our kids would be better off without.

In commenting on Mrs. DeVos he noted her endorsement of school choice (an interesting proposition that has two sides) and her opposition to Common Core. That opposition, at least, is a step in the right direction. But then he stated: “Truthfully, if something isn’t done about education it won’t matter who Trump nominates because the next generation will simply be brought up being taught that they are all racist, warmongering, sexist islamaphobes that don’t care about the planet.” And he further noted that: “…until someone acknowledges that our school systems have become a breeding ground for behavior based psychology and behavior modification techniques, which indoctrinate children into the tenets of progressivism, nothing will change.” Unfortunately, he is right on the money here, and most folks, even on school boards, just don’t have a clue.

He stated that if Betsy DeVos “…is serious about reforming our education system the first thing she would do is to eliminate the United States participation in UNESCO, which stands for The United Nations Educational, Scientific, Cultural Organization.  The United States has been a member since 1946. Since this time the United Nations has dictated educational policy in the United States with the main goal being the elimination of patriotism, individualism, and any concept of what is right and wrong. This explains how the radical left has maintained such control over education, getting away with teaching  racially divisive concepts like ‘white privilege’ while at the same time raising generations of American students who have no understanding of the constitutional republic in which they freely live.”  So, it will be interesting to see what Mrs. DeVos does with UNESCO, if anything. And, if nothing, then you can rest assured that nothing will change in the area of public education save the educational rhetoric.

As if to buttress Mr. Risselada’s  emphasis on getting rid of UNESCO, there was a brief article in The New American for February 6, 2017, the headline for which was UN Demands More Globalist Propaganda in School Textbooks. This article noted that: “The goal of the Global Education Monitoring Report  released in December by the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is fairly transparent: accelerate the indoctrination of impressionable children worldwide with textbook propaganda promoting ‘global citizenship,’ the discredited man-made global warming theory, homosexuality, transgenderism, and outright totalitarianism. And according to the report itself, school textbooks are the best way to do that.”

And to finish off this educational farce (because that’s what it really is) there was an article on http://www.zerohedge.com for January 27th stating that Ohio State University will soon be offering a class on How to detect Microaggressions  and be ‘Self-Aware of White Privilege’.”  The Zero Hedge article observed that “Amazingly, American parents can get all this for the bargain basement price of just $44,784 per year. Just an amazing value.” I recently did an article for this blog spot about families in the South that willingly pay for their kids’ cultural destruction in these big colleges. Here is a prime example!

Frankly, I don’t pretend to know what Mrs. DeVos, if her nomination flies, will do about the leftist tilt of the Department of Education or UNESCO.  I know what she ought to do, but whether that will be too rich for her or not, I just don’t know. She ought to quit using any and all material from the United Nations in every public school in America. I also understand there is a bill currently in Congress to get the U.S., out of the U.N. This bill needs to be passed (though I doubt that it will) and we need to get this country out of the United Nations.

As far as “reforming” the public schools, I really have very serious doubts. I think that the best honest folks can do is to possibly slow down their leftist agenda somewhat, but this is a system you will never truly reform, because I think true reform for it is impossible. Remember, we are talking about a Humanist school system that was formed to get rid of Christian influences in education in this country.  So if that was the aim of its founders at its inception, what, pray tell, do you “reform” it back to? I have asked that question several times over the years and have yet to get anything even approaching an answer. So I have come to the conclusion that you don’t reform it–you separate from it, secede from it, whatever you want to call it. You get your kids out of it. There are educational options for those willing to look.

  1. Amen to:
    So I have come to the conclusion that you don’t reform it–you separate from it, secede from it, whatever you want to call it. You get your kids out of it.

  2. That’s been my opinion of it since West Virginia. Our kids, thanks be to God, never spent a day in public school. And now our grandchildren are being home schooled. This is a multi-generational process that we have to start and keep going.

  3. And he further noted that: “…until someone acknowledges that our school systems have become a breeding ground for behavior based psychology and behavior modification techniques, (Socialist indoctrination I call “Brainwashing”!—Al Barrs) which indoctrinate children into the tenets of progressivism, nothing will change”. Unfortunately, he is right on the money here, and most folks, even on school boards, just don’t have a clue. (School boards are as much of the problems as is school district and school Administrators and especially teachers! —Al Barrs)

    Since this time the United Nations has dictated educational policy in the United States with the main goal being the elimination of patriotism, individualism and any concept of what is right and wrong. (Actually the move to eliminate individualism in the United States was begun by socialist lawyers and law school deans like Roscoe Pound, the Dean of the ultra-socialist Harvard Law School! Pound began “quietly and slowly”, as he told socialist followers, “so as not to alarm the people who would rise up against the endeavor to transform constitutional Individualism into Socialism!” —Al Barrs)

    This explains how the radical left has maintained such control over education, getting away with teaching racially divisive concepts like ‘white privilege’ while at the same time raising generations of American students who have no understanding of the constitutional republic in which they freely live.” (What many American’s failed to realize is the provable fact that the socialist faction in America implemented their long running plan to infiltrate America’s schools systems, take them over and transform their educational programs from conservative based to socialist based programs and socialist political indoctrinating centers! This accelerated takeover of American’s public school systems oddly began at the very same time the “drug and free sex” craze invaded America. Was that era a purposeful tactic to distract Patriotic American’s from what socialists were in the process of doing to our school systems in the USA? Consequently generations of American children have been indoctrinated, or “brainwashed” by socialist to believe and support socialism instead of individualism in the USA. Want proof? Just look at the millions of young Americans, who attended American public schools from 1960 to today, who were diehard supporters of Socialist Bernie Sanders in our 2016 General election! When I use the term “socialists” I am including the supporting factions of Marxists, Communists, Progressives, Liberals and Left-wingers. America’s public education system has been under direct assault by socialists since 1960! —Al Barrs)

    Accelerate the indoctrination of impressionable children worldwide with textbook propaganda promoting ‘global citizenship’ (Code for “socialism”! —Al Barrs), the discredited man-made global warming theory, homosexuality, transgenderism and outright totalitarianism. And according to the report itself, school textbooks are the best way to do that.” (America’s textbooks have been written by socialist revisionists since the 1870s. I discovered that fact when I was about 20 years of age and now I am 78. The test is to compare textbooks to period documents, especially in American History and history of our U.S. Leaders. Factually we American’s are living in an era of history lies, propaganda and deflective rhetoric! —Al Barrs)

    She ought to quit using any and all material from the United Nations in every public school in America. (Yes I agree! I spent many years in the education and training systems of Florida and know firsthand what has been going on there, which I spent many hours and days opposing and resisting. When I was a professor at a private university I stopped using “textbooks” and began writing my own knowledge information documents for my students. Not unexpectedly, my knowledge documents were many fewer pages…because socialist revisionists textbook writers have much unneeded information in their textbook that have no benefit or direct impact on the occupational jobs and tasks required in business and industry to master in order to be highly successful employees! Since those early days of my career I designed, field tested and managed a training methodology called Precision-Based Industry Training Design and inserted in American businesses and Federal Agencies.—Al Barrs) I also understand there is a bill currently in Congress to get the U.S., out of the U.N. This bill needs to be passed (though I doubt that it will) and we need to get this country out of the United Nations. (I whole heartedly support the U.S. getting completely out of the anti-U.S. United Nations, and have had that position for many years!—Al Barrs)

    I think true reform for it is impossible. (Several things the People of school districts can do to turn their public schools around is to recruit, and if board members and superintendents are elected, vote for conservatives, and demand they return to conservative programs and stop brainwashing their children into socialism! —Al Barrs)

    There are educational options for those willing to look. (Yes, like homeschooling, which our children did with their children, church schools and private conservative schools, and private conservative colleges like Liberty University. —Al Barrs)
