Good News From Alabama After New Orleans’ Political Correctness

by Al Benson Jr.

Many of us have watched, almost dumbstruck, at the rampant cultural genocide being displayed in New Orleans. The cultural Marxists there, from the mayor on down, have simply run amuck, basically doing what they wanted the way they wanted. To label them as culture destroyers is almost too charitable. I am sure that, along with myself, many others would describe their activities and personalities in language that I would hesitate to have reproduced in this article.

Their execrable attempts at the total destruction of Southern and Confederate history and heritage almost border on the insane–but then, they are cultural Marxists, so I guess that is par for the course.

An article on http://constitution.com for May 20th was quite perceptive. It noted: “The left has spent countless decades attempting to vilify the South by publicly shaming them for slavery that ’caused the Civil War’ when, in fact, the war itself was truly and unequivocally a result of northern lawmakers’ attempts to sabotage the sovereignty provided by states’ rights was the nation continued westward in Manifest Destiny.” The fact that all the original thirteen colonies, north and south, had slaves at one point is never mentioned, nor is the fact that some slave states remained in the Union while Lincoln supposedly “fought to free the slaves.” The Establishment, educational and otherwise, does not want us to dwell too much on such facts, and so, in this regard, in our day and age, most “history” books lie to us.

The Constitution article noted: “In this quest to keep Southerners under their thumb, and under the auspices of ‘political correctness’ liberals the nation over have begun demanding that statues, monuments, and celebrations with Confederate subject matter be swept under the rug or destroyed all together. It is the epitome of revisionist history, and it is a menace to our nation’s future.” And don’t think the cultural Marxists are not aware of that. They are, because such is their agenda. Those people want to destroy your culture and your children’s future, and what’s more, they want to enjoy themselves doing it!

So while they have “made hay while the moon shines” in New Orleans, they have not done quite so well in Alabama. The Constitution article tells us: “Alabama lawmakers on Friday approved sweeping protections for Confederate monuments, names and other historic memorials,…The measure ‘would prohibit the relocation, removal, alteration, renaming, or other disturbance of any architecturally significant building, memorial street, or monument that has stood on public property for 40 or more years,’ it reads.”

The article noted that “African-American lawmakers opposed the bill at every step of the legislative process,  saying it solidifies a shameful legacy of slavery.” This line of bull is one of the few weapons the political left has and they have used it so often for so long that the luster is beginning to wear off the sword. One of those opposed to this bill was Hank Sanders, a well-known leftist from Selma. he and his daughter, Rose,  were instrumental in trying to keep the Nathan Bedford Forrest bust on Confederate Circle in Selma from being put back up after someone had stolen it. They were unsuccessful with that effort, too, but it sure wasn’t for lack of trying. If, as the Constitution article said, “African-American lawmakers” opposed this bill, you have to wonder how many of the African-American lawmakers in Alabama are leftists. Maybe someone in Alabama can do some kind of study on that.

It should have occurred to most Southern folks by now that those trying to destroy our monuments and eventually our culture,  are leftists of one stripe or another–liberals who don’t have the guts to become outright communists, as well as socialists, fascists,  and those who are outright communists, along with all manner of “useful idiots” who, in their exalted brilliance, just don’t know the difference and are naive enough to still think, in spite of world history, that communism is actually an expression of “peace and freedom.” Then there are those trying to destroy our heritage who are actually being paid by certain Elitist groups to do it. I won’t mention any names here, but the head of one (or several) of these groups has a last name with only five letters in it and he worked for the Nazis during World War 2.

Folks, we have got to get it through our heads that these are not just ordinary people with a different viewpoint than ours, people you can sit down and dialogue with over your differences. These people have an agenda that calls for your destruction culturally, and eventually probably physically once they feel they have the power. Their agenda will never be dialogue with you–it will always be your ultimate destruction.

This new bill in Alabama is resistance to their program. They understand that. Resistance is one thing they do understand. Praise God that Alabama has done what she did in this instance. The rest of the Southern states, those not thoroughly co-opted by the left and the Deep State, need to start doing the same thing. If their watch-word is “destruction” then ours needs to be “resistance.”

The Constitution article also noted that the monuments in New Orleans are being removed “at the behest of left-leaning groups.” So you and your culture are basically under communist assault. This is not just a batch of local black folks that want equal treatment at the local level–this is a communist assault on our culture and we had better wake up and grasp that fact pretty soon!

Lew Rockwell on Confederate Statues

by Al Benson Jr.

I read an interesting little blip on http://www.lewrockwell.com this morning, May 19th. It seems that the cultural Marxist Regime in New Orleans is to take down the statue of General Lee on this day. Mr. Rocklwell’s headline said New Orleans would “dismantle” the Lee statue. To me that’s a nice way of saying they are going to break it up, but then I’ve been known on rare occasions, to have a suspicious mind, so I could be wrong.

I will quote Lew Rockwell here so you all can see what he said: “But the disgusted may have a remedy: commission Confederate statues, or buy the discarded, and display them on private property.  In the South, far away from decaying federal encampments like New Orleans.  Create an educational park about secession, Lincoln’s invasion, and all related issues, featuring a first-class museum, library, courses, films, resident scholars, and more. Tell the truth. It would draw international attention.”

Such would be a positive response to all the negative fertilizer we hear about the monuments and our flags. I have read about and noticed across the South, that local SCV groups and others have been buying little chunks of private property, some of them not any bigger than my carport at home, and they have been raising big, big Confederate flags on them–flagpoles 100 feet high with flags 30-50 feet long. This is much to the chagrin of local cultural Marxist excuses for politicians who can’t do anything about them because the are on private property. That is the same principle that Lew Rockwell is talking about here.

I realize such endeavors would take a good bit of money, but it might be something area Confederate groups could begin to work toward as worthwhile projects. And if private property could be purchased in some areas from sympathetic property owners then efforts along these lines could be started on a modest scale and could grow as funds became more available.

My wife and I have friends over near Laurel, Mississippi that have what they call a “little home lending library”  from which they loan books out to local folks who are interested in various subjects. Why couldn’t something like that be done in regard to Southern and Confederate history and heritage? What you would need is a not-too-big piece of private property where you could put up a small building. Our friends’ home lending library is not huge by any means, it’s probably a little bigger than our kitchen at home, and we don’t have a big kitchen. Yet they have managed to get books, many from his personal library, about theology, history, politics, and other subjects of general interest. If we could just learn to start thinking along these lines we might be able to come up with lots of possibilities that could be done locally by a few dedicated people, and they would not have to be as big as the Smithsonian Institute–and most assuredly not as politically correct.

A final question–who owns the “dismantled” statue of General Lee?  Does the city of New Orleans own these statues and what will they do with them once they are all down? There might be various answers to that question depending where in the South you happen to be.

I have been told that the beautiful Confederate monument next to the courthouse in Caddo Parish in Shreveport is on private property and that the statue belongs to the United Daughters of the Confederacy.  I don’t know authoritatively, so maybe someone can fill me in. That may well be true, otherwise the cultural Marxists in Shreveport would already have been there with the wrecking crew, with masks on, at midnight, with police snipers posted on the courthouse, ready to take it down. They’ll probably still try to do that if they can get by with it–legal, illegal, or otherwise.

Somehow, we have got to start thinking along the lines of finding good places for those statues and monuments we may be able to rescue so that we can make sure they are put back up someplace that we have control over rather than some city with weaseling politicians.

Please pray about this, and talk to others who may have similar concerns and there may be things those who want to preserve their culture can do in some areas to blunt the attacks of the cultural Marxists. After all, if the city council of East Overshoe votes to take down the local Confederate monument, only to see it back up in someone’s pasture five miles outside of town in a couple or three months where it can still be seen, what have they gained in the long run except a good chance of being booted out of office in the next election?

American Taliban’s False Religion Displayed in New Orleans

by Al Benson Jr.

Just came across an article on http://www.wwl.com that noted the cultural Marxist excuse for a mayor in New Orleans is asking the public for support in his quest to practice his cultural genocide agenda by removing Confederate monuments in his fair city.

The article noted: “New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu is trying to recruit supporters to show they are behind the effort to remove Confederate statues in New Orleans. Through his political action committee Landrieu sent out emails asking for support…The mayor calls on readers to sign on to show they are with him in this effort.” This article was posted on April 27th–five days ago.

Had you been naive enough to believe what was reported in the prostitute press, you would have concluded that Landrieu had almost total unqualified support for his purge of Confederate monuments.  That was the impression given. Now, according to this article, written by Jeff Cohen, we begin to discern that maybe the facade of support for Landrieu’s agenda regarding all things Confederate was just that–a facade. And maybe all the implied support for his purge ain’t really there. So now he’s out trying to fire up the troops so it won’t look like he’s out there all by his lonesome on the anti-Confederate front line.

He’s still spouting his rehearsed line about “diversity, inclusion, and tolerance.” However it would seem that his version of “diversity” does not extend to white folks who want to celebrate their culture and heritage like others want to celebrate theirs. After all, Confederate heritage doesn’t deserve to be there. It’s not “equal” with all those other “diversities”–like sodomy, transgenderism and socialism. Do you think if there were a statue of Harvey Milk in New Orleans Landrieu would be trying to take it down? Not on your life, baby. He’d be laying a wreath at the base of the statue to commemorate “diversity.”

For the cultural Marxist (of which the American Taliban is one small part) “diversity” is part of his religious faith–but it must always be his diversity and never anyone else’s.

I have a good friend in Illinois who follows the theological trends of various anti-Christian groups, the cultural Marxists among them, and he offered this comment just today, which I thought was particularly relevant and accurate. He said: “These people (cultural Marxists and their ilk) believe that reality is relative. Therefore, they believe that destroying the cultural symbols that are here, they can replace them with their version of reality and thereby take control. This is why they refuse to believe in God. God means that reality is absolute. So by refusing to recognize His existence, they think they can eliminate His absolute reality and replace it with their own relative reality, thus establishing their ‘reality’ as the new ‘absolute’.  The only problem with that is that God’s reality remains in place, immovable, and their reality against His crashes and burns. In other words they believe in and are trying to impose an illusion.” That is a pretty fair country definition of where anti-Christ religion is really at–smoke and mirrors.

Ultimately, all these issues humanity has to deal with are religious issues. Many have political or economic manifestations, but at root, they are religious–and we are not being taught to grasp this truth anymore, have not been taught to grasp it for generations. Our “educations”–so called, have conditioned us to not even think in these terms.

This mindset is straight out of the French Revolution, where the revolutionaries hated the biblical concept of original sin, and so they had to replace that truth with something that make them more comfortable. So they did–and we got the guillotine and other manifestations of their religious faith. During the Bolshevik Revolution we were treated to manifestations of Lenin’s religious faith.

So, at its base, the destruction of Confederate history, culture, and heritage is a not-too-well-concealed attempt to replace the mostly Christian culture of the Old South with a vapor, a spiritual illusion that the cultural Marxist feels more at home with. Racism, bigotry, intolerance, and all these other handy catch phrases they parrot are nothing more than a cover for their true agenda–the suppression of Christian truth and the replacing of that ultimate Truth (John 14:6) with the illusion of their “truth” along with their desire to destroy what they hate. It is the “hath God said” of the 21st century (Genesis 3:1).

Leave people with no cultural history or roots and no cultural future–and you get to decide what their future will be! That’s the real name of this theological shell game. And there is only one way you deal with it–exposure and resistance! 

At 1 a.m. in the Morning With Snipers on the Roof!

by Al Benson Jr.

Think your Southern culture, history, and heritage are not under attack, constant attack? If you don’t, then you really better wake up and smell the coffee.

Just take a look at what is going on in New Orleans right now in regard to Confederate and historical monuments. You are about to see a major exercise in cultural genocide. Hopefully you have been keeping an eye on what has been happening in New Orleans in the last year regarding Confederate monuments and other historical statues.

There has been a battle over these monuments–it’s been in the courts–and naturally the cultural Marxists won in the courts. With your culture under assault, did you actually think it would turn out any other way?

Recently a bill was introduced in the state legislature that would have protected all these historic monuments and statues of veterans that fought in all wars in this country. I think it ended up in some committee that decided they would study the situation for the next 99 years. In the meantime, the vaunted mayor of New Orleans made plans to get rid of statues of Lee, Beauregard, and Jeff Davis, as well as the Liberty Place Monument, which has been the first victim of this politically correct purge.

The city had a hard time finding someone willing to take these monuments down, but they finally did, under the cloak of anonymity, which included workers with black vests, yellow helmets, and cloth to cover their faces, and “snipers stationed on a nearby parking deck looking down on the scene.”  This all happened at 1 a.m. in the morning! I wonder what would have happened had some group come along to protest what was being done. Would the police snipers have shot them all?

The statues are being hauled down because they have been declared to be “…public nuisances as symbols of racism and white supremacy.” There’s that old “racist” bugaboo again. The cultural Marxists dearly love to slap that term on anyone that dares to disagree with them. If we refuse to get with the Marxist program then we are automatically all racists, sexists, homophones, Islamaphobes, you name it. And all those terms are meant to shut you up so no real dissent to the Marxist agenda is allowed.

Mayor Landrieu, brother of Obama-clone Mary Landrieu, who couldn’t support her Marxist-in-Chief, Obama enough while she was in office, has stated, in his exalted place as mayor that: “New Orleans celebrates our diversity, inclusion, and tolerance…Relocating these Confederate monuments is not about taking something away from someone else. This is not about politics, blame or retaliation…” The hell is isn’t! Mayor Landrieu has wormed his way into his position twice with his opposition to these monuments and by pandering to the cultural Marxist crowd.

So Landrieu celebrates diversity, inclusion and tolerance, but when it comes to those categories in New Orleans, no Southern Heritage folks need apply. All that diversity and inclusion doesn’t extend to them. All they are good for is to pay taxes to support the welfare crowd. Once they’ve ponied up their cash for that they can take their flags and monuments and go home!

There was an interesting comment by columnist Tim Morris on http://www.nola.com for April 25th where he said: “I’m not sure what kind of message the rest of the world receives in the images of monuments being dismantled in darkness by masked men. And many missed the chance to celebrate our diversity, inclusion, and tolerance at 2. a.m. We can only trust that our government officials are taking the appropriate steps because they have told us they are.” Mr. Morris, that’s pretty thin reassurance as far as I’m concerned.

Part of New Orleans past, part of her history, is being systematically removed–and that is not by accident–it is deliberate!

Writer Boyd Cathey, in an article on http://www.abbevilleinstitute.org made a very telling observation as to what this is really all about. he wrote: “A people without a past, that is, a real and discernible history, is a people with no real future.”

And that is the cultural Marxist agenda for the South–destroy your history so that you have no future except what they choose to provide you with. And I have to tell you, I’ve seen what the cultural Marxists want to provide you and your children with, and I can tell you, you’re not going to like it! But in order to avoid it, you have got to learn to fight back. Sitting in front of the TV and watching the ball game won’t cut the mustard. Just like we are responsible for educating our kids, so we are also responsible for preserving our culture and their heritage–and if we refuse to do it, the day will come when our kids will curse us for it!

April Is Confederate History Month–but the gutless will never proclaim it!

by Al Benson Jr.

February was black history month and if you are like me, you heard about it until it was coming out your ears. The “fake news” media never ceased to deliver unto us some little tidbit that had to do with some aspect of black history. And it didn’t all cease on the 28th of the month either.

April is Confederate History Month and I’d be willing to bet you haven’t heard the first word about it from the “fake news” media. This is one of those things that they, in their unending wisdom, have deemed you don’t need to know anything about and so the MSM will do as much as possible to make sure you remain totally unaware of this. It’s called “selective reporting 101.”

There was a time when some Southern governors would issue proclamations noting the observation of Confederate history month. However, in the past few years, most Southern governors seem to have developed a severe case of political intestinal discharge when it comes to acknowledging that anything Southern or Confederate is even fit to exst.

The governor of Mississippi seems to have been the one exception to this rule, for which I applaud him. If there are others that have issued proclamations that I am not aware of, I apologize to them for omitting mention of them.

Confederate and Southern history and heritage groups usually have various events during the month of April to mark Confederate history month. Their having such events and observations has become even more critical and important in a day when the cultural Marxists are busily trying to tear down any remembrance of Confederate history, from our flags to our monuments, even to school and street names. I have said it before (maybe some have grown tired of hearing me say it) but it still needs to be said. “Those people” (the cultural Marxists) want us all gone and forgotten and they are prepared to labor to make that happen. If you have observed the blatant cultural genocide being practiced upon us in the past couple years, you have to be aware of that.

I can’t speak too much for what goes on in other states, except possibly for Virginia, with the Virginia Flaggers. Those folks fight the good fight every month of the year and they must be doing something right because they get lots of flack. Here in Louisiana, the Sons of Confederate Veterans, as well as others who believe in preserving their heritage from the Leftist onslaught, take part in several events in April that highlight their preservation efforts.

A couple weeks ago there was a big Confederate flag caravan that drove all the way from Shreveport, Louisiana to Vicksburg, Mississippi and back again. This was on a Saturday afternoon and lots of folks on Route 20 saw all those cars, motorcycles and Confederate flags–going and coming. I understand another group did the exact same thing on Route 10 in South Louisiana.

Another event that occurs on a yearly basis here in North Louisiana is one called Flags Across the Ouachita. Those who support Confederate heritage and history gather on the Lea Joyner Bridge over the Ouachita River, with all manner of Confederate flags at rush hour on a Friday afternoon You cross over this bridge to get to West Monroe, Louisiana from Monroe, Louisiana, and it’s pretty busy during rush hour on a Friday, so lots of commuters get to see all those folks with their Confederate flags. And lots of folks honk their horns and give us a “thumbs up” to show their appreciation–which shows that, in spite of all the cultural Marxist efforts in this area, a goodly number of folks just haven’t bought into that agenda. These, and other efforts, let the cultural Marxists know that “we ain’t goin’ away easy.”

This year, a lady reporter and a cameraman from a local TV station happened by and stopped to talk to several of us and interviewed a couple of us. I let her know that all of us standing there holding Confederate flags were not native Southerners. I told her I was originally from New England and the next man up from me was from Ohio. This seemed to surprise her somewhat, but as we talked to her, we tried to convey the truth that this was, at root, more than a North-South issue–this is a cultural issue, and good sincere folks from the North who understand that, almost inevitably end up supporting the Southern right to celebrate and promote their culture.

So, folks, keep your ear to the ground. You just may find out that more of such events go on than you are aware of–and we don’t do them just in April That would give the cultural Marxists the other eleven months of free time to work at destroying our culture. So these events will take place when and where needed. One final thought–don’t depend on the MSM to enlighten you about such things. They have a vested interest in keeping you in the dark.

A Little More Anti-Southern Media Propaganda?

by Al Benson Jr.

In getting on the computer to check my email the other day I ran across one of those classic surveys you often find on the Internet. This one listed all the different states in the country and purported to tell you which were the best ten states to live in and which were the ten worst states to live in

No doubt we have all seen this type of thing on the Internet from time to time. I don’t know if “survey” is the proper word to describe these things or not. They cover all manner of geographical topics–what are the ten best cities in the US to live in and what are the ten worst; what are the areas of the country that people are the most content in, or the least content in; what parts of the country have the cleanest air–state by state; what part of the country is the least racially prejudiced–state by state;  and what parts of the country are the most economically deprived–state by state.

Over the years I’ve checked out a batch of these just to see what conclusions they came up with, although after the first two or three I’d checked, I found there was a pattern to most of these. No matter what the subject covered was, the Southern states always seemed to end up at or near the bottom of the list. Northern “paradises” like New Jersey, New York, Michigan or Illinois always seemed to be close to or at the top of the list, while Louisiana, Georgia, Mississippi or Alabama always seemed to bump along somewhere in the bottom dozen.

These “surveys” or whatever you want to call them leave the distinct impression that the frozen North is heaven on earth, while the South is such a gosh-awful place that no one in his right mind would ever go there if he didn’t absolutely have to.

I hate to burst the surveyors’ politically correct little bubble (well, not really) but I think they’ve got a lot of it backwards, a not uncommon event among the politically correct.

Outside a couple years in West Virginia, a brief sojourn for me in Oklahoma before I was married, and myriad trips to the Western states over the years, my family and I have spent most of our lives in the North. Now it wasn’t all bad and there were some really good folks we knew (who were not Yankee types), but I have to tell you, after fourteen years in Louisiana, I have no desire to go back north to live. We are more content in the South than ever we were in the North, and we’d only go back under extreme duress, not by happy choice. Our son has now come south and is over in East Texas, and he really likes Texas.

One place, however, that I do have to agree with these “surveys” is when they deal with economic issues. The South is always listed as the most economically barren part of the country, with more folks at or below the poverty level and more folks on food stamps (although I don’t know how they outdo Chicago and Detroit) than most other places in the nation. And there is a reason for that–and not an accidental one. It was not always so. In fact, up until the War of Northern Aggression, the South was the most prosperous part of the country. After the shooting part of that war was over the tables were turned. When “reconstruction”  (actually deconstruction) was visited on the South  by a “benevolent” Yankee/Marxist regime in Washington, the South was turned into the poorest part of the country. And again, need I stress that this was no accident? Didn’t think so.

For those that would appreciated a little in-depth study as to the reasons for this situation I would urge you to read Punished with Poverty–The Suffering South by James and Walter Kennedy and published by Shotwell Publishing LLC of Columbia, South Carolina. You can find it on Amazon and it isn’t all that expensive but it is informative. In one place the Kennedys quote a Northern newspaper that stated: We mean to conquer them, Subjugate them… Never would traitors be permitted to ‘return to peaceful and contented homes’; instead they ‘must find poverty at their firesides and see privation in the anxious eyes of mothers and the rags of children’.  Now I submit–here is Yankee charity at its highest point!

To bear witness to this, Francis Butler Simkins wrote in A History of the South that “As soon as the federal troops got a foothold in the South property was seized and sold for nonpayment under the Direct Tax Act…It is estimated that the federal taxes collected in the South in 1865-68 exceeded the entire amount the federal government and private Northern agencies spent on Southern relief and reconstruction during that period.” Or, as one Yankee general said in Louisiana, during the Red River Campaign in 1864: “We didn’t come to buy, we came to take.” And take they did! If this is accurate, and I have no reason to think it isn’t, then the Yankee/Marxists actually turned a profit on “reconstruction” over and above what they just stole outright.

All that to say this: before you blame Southern folks for being lazy and shiftless and whatever else you can come up with, read the Kennedy Brothers’ latest book and it will give you a very good indication as to why “it is what it is” in the South, even today.

Just Another Day in Public School in Maryland

by Al Benson Jr.

And they wonder why people want to get their kids out of these public schools!

According to an article on The Horn News for March 23rd: “An innocent 14-year old girl was brutally raped in a Maryland school bathroom by two illegal immigrants last week–and the mainstream media has completely ignored it.” Well, that comes as no surprise, I mean, come on now. Had she been raped by two white American kids it would have been world news for days, but because it is, allegedly, two illegal immigrants that did it, this is hardly a newsworthy event, and the scumbag media will make sure it stays that way if they can. The two who “allegedly” committed this rape were here, illegally from someplace in Central America.

Parents in Montgomery County, Maryland, especially in the town of Rockville, where this happened are really ticked, as they should be. They turn their kids over to these intellectual meat grinders we call public schools and this is what they get back–and they’ve paid for it all with their property taxes! One parent, anonymously, (possibly for fear of retaliation) told Fox News “I know that if this country enforced the laws that are already on the books these two young men would not have been here and this rape…would not have occurred.” You can thank our former president (who is busy trying to tear down the administration of our current president) for this mess regarding illegal immigration. He wanted them all here (hopefully to, at some point, replace Americans).

Another member of the community was very critical of the school’s response, (which we will get to in a minute).  She said: “You have young adult males that really do not have our culture and you are putting them in the same classroom as our 14-year old girls and they are saying ‘There’s nothing we can do about that–sorry’.” Well maybe the public school can’t, or won’t, do anything, but the parents can. They can start removing their kids from this horrendous system. Would to God some of them would get that message. There are several alternatives to public schools and not all of them are that expensive.

Of course then the Rockville School Superintendent  will probably label them as “racists.”  And, in an article for March 23rd on http://townhall.com  written by Katie Pavlich, that’s exactly what happened.  According to the Town Hall article: “Montgomery County Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith is accusing parents of racism and xenophobia. He also claims threats are being made against students and schools…While many have chosen to engage civilly in the conversation,  far too many have crossed the line with racist, xenophobic calls and emails. MCPS is working with law enforcement to identify those who are making threats toward our students and schools.  This behavior will not be tolerated in our community.” Which students are being threatened? Sounds almost as if Dr. Smith is more concerned about parental reaction to this rape than he is about anything else. After all, bad publicity for the public school system doesn’t help to encourage record attendance does it? It also seems that some parents have been protesting outside of Smith’s office recently. One man said he took his daughter out of school last year because of an “unsafe environment.” It sounds like, with comments such as that, this has not been the first problem of this sort in the public schools in Rockville and surrounding environs.

Even the Governor of Maryland is looking for some answers about this situation. The governor asked: “Why is an 18-year old man in a class with 13 or 14-year old girls? Why was his status not known to those folks? Why was he allowed to enter the country after he was picked up for illegally crossing the border–both of them? So there are a lot of questions…” And the governor does not seem to feel that the school board in Montgomery County has been all that forthcoming in answering those questions. He said, flat out, “Not only have they refused to provide any information to us, but they’ve refused to provide information to the state Board of Education, which specifically requested more information.”

Just another typical day in the public schools in Maryland–and how many other places around the country? How much of this sort of thing goes on in public schools across the country that we never hear about and that the media will never cover outside of bare minimum local coverage that is forced upon them?

If you’d like to get some idea of the real public school situation, and the history of that situation,  get hold of a book called Crimes of the Educators by Samuel Blumenfeld and Alex Newman, published by WND (World Net Daily) Books in 2014. After you have read that you should be seriously ready to consider taking your kids out of public schools–forever!

I have never forgotten the phone conversation I had with a public school teacher in New York when I worked for a home school organization in the Midwest. She called us wanting information on how to home school her daughter. She told me: “I’m in this school everyday so I know what goes on–no way is my daughter going to school here.”
