In coaching we have a saying, “Control what you can control.” In other words, focus on what you can do and do it. Unfortunately, many have become very adept at recognizing problems, but few have taken the step to control what they can control. Case in point is the anti-Christian, anti-American brainwashing that is taking place in the public school system. Many complain about it. Few are doing anything about it. Same with colleges and universities. “What can we do?” is so often asked. Most don’t realize that the education of their children is the responsibility of the parents and the taxpayers who live in the school districts. There is control. People don’t have to accept the nonsense.
I recently had a conversation with a very dear young man. All he could talk about is how bad America was and is, and how other countries like China and India are so much better. He also pontificated on the stupidity of the English language. He is only 16 and is in AP classes at a public school. Robert Knight, columnist for the Washington Times, recently wrote an article documenting how the extreme leftists in education are restructuring the English language as “part of the Left’s plan to turn the U.S. into an updated version of the Soviet Union.” It’s outright Marxism designed to destroy this nation from within by ideological subversion, a brainwashing technique designed to change a person’s perception of reality. The problem extends to colleges and universities, where the teachers are taught—see where this heads?
The Epoch Times reported, “A Christian law student, who supports the National Rifle Association (NRA), told The Epoch Times he didn’t know he’d been reported as “an extremist” for expressing conservative views until FBI agents knocked on his apartment door. They questioned him about his political views for more than an hour. A journalism student said she felt bullied by a professor who forced students to parrot her scorn for America’s “systemic racism” and affirm “progressive talking points” on immigration, gender-identity issues, “queer theory,” intersectionality, transgenderism, religious faith, and the ideas of Karl Marx, author of “The Communist Manifesto.” When she writes about conservative ideas, she gets an F, when repeating leftist ideas she gets As.
This brainwashing of our kids can be changed. It takes local action. First, the school boards. Hold them accountable by attending meetings. The folks in Loudoun County, Va., did just that. They faced the buzzsaw of being dragged out of meetings, being arrested, even having to file lawsuits. But they succeeded. And they’re not finished yet. Parents can also influence where their kids go to college and have ongoing talks with them about what they are being taught. What is taught now will be how our country is run in the future. And we don’t have to allow this garbage. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Toleration of kids being subjected to this leftist child abuse that has long-lasting moral, ethical and social consequences is, say it with me…Stupidocrisy.
