Democrat-controlled states have exploited the pandemic as frequently as possible to achieve some of their long-term burning desires, including an eventual takeover of virtually all elements of American life. Trump-hating Democrats don’t just hate Trump, they hate everything he represents: a love of liberty and a respect for the Constitution.
Currently, freedom of speech is one of the constitutional rights facing the greatest threat from the radical left. “Cancel Culture” has become completely out of control, with hysterical college students demanding safe spaces for the most micro of micro-aggressions, leading one to wonder exactly who would defend our nation in the event of an invasion.
While “Cancel Culture” is terrible enough, what the radical leftists really want in the long run is even worse: a brainwashed population that doesn’t question government authority and mindlessly follows all its laws and orders, which would require a communist takeover of education.
Over the past several decades, the Democrats have slowly developed a stranglehold over education with the goal of having all future generations brainwashed. Foreshadowed by George Orwell in his frighteningly prescient novel, 1984, “Big Brother” is especially invasive in the educational system through state-run schools.
These schools are directly responsible for their horrific effect on America’s youth, as noted by conservative columnist David Harsanyi in a recent interview.
“State-run schools have undercut two fundamental conditions of a healthy tolerant society. First, they’ve created millions of civic illiterates who are disconnected from long-held communal values and national identity. Second, they’ve exacerbated the very inequalities that trigger the tearing apart of fissures.” [Source: National Review]
In short, state-run schools promote ignorance, violence, and division.
For this reason, the Los Angeles Teachers Union’s latest demands are especially chilling. The 35,000-member union essentially demanded the abolition of charter schools, or a publicly-funded option for students to receive an education outside of Marxist doctrine.
“Privately operated, publicly funded charter schools,” meanwhile, “drain resources from district schools,” the union said. The practice of allowing charter schools to use existing educational facilities “adds students to campuses when we need to reduce the number of students to allow for physical distancing.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Translation: privately operated, publicly funded charter schools represent a threat to the Democrats’ plan for a communist takeover of education.
Democrats don’t want people to ask questions. Democrats don’t want people to think. What Democrats want are obedient little sheep who will never question losing their freedoms or their constitutional rights.
Oh, and in a uniquely American twist, the teachers union also had demanded for police to be further defunded before teachers will deign to return to work.
“Police violence ‘is a leading cause of death and trauma for Black people, and is a serious public health and moral issue,’ the union wrote. The policy paper calls on authorities to ‘shift the astronomical amount of money devoted to policing, to education and other essential needs such as housing and public health.’” [Source: The Daily Wire]
While this demand comes from the United States, it sounds much more like a KGB-inspired mandate during the Cold War, as the Soviet Union featured an educational system strongly desired by one of the largest teacher unions in the nation now.
When only one type of education is available, and when it is totally controlled by the state, the population is naturally more obedient because people don’t ask questions nor do they wonder if things should be done differently. For multiple millennia, empires and countries have used this exact tactic and deliberately kept the vast majority of their populations uneducated for this reason.
The United States is the greatest nation in the world for being the only nation founded on the principles of liberty and freedom, and one of the most important freedoms is the right to educational choice.
Democrats must be stopped in their battle for the minds and hearts of the American youth.
