Years ago, there was an announcement before the local newscasts: "Parents, it's 10 o'clock. Do you know where you children are?" In fact, there's a station in New York that still does it.
That question or maybe a somewhat-modified version is even more relevant today: "Parents, it's 2010. Do you know what your children are learning?"
You should. There is a concerted effort to indoctrinate your children with progressive propaganda, going on right now. It's everywhere: the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, with the global warming agenda. And many of our nation's schools are hitting our kids with the full progressive assault.
Thursday, the "The National Day of Action to Defend Education" took place. It sounds innocent enough. The rally Web site says the event was to protest against the current assault on public education: tuition hikes, budget cuts, furlough days, intentional reduction in enrollment.
So if it's really just about education and protecting the kids, why did virtually every socialist and communist organization in existence support this event? Groups like Students for a Democratic Society, the Socialist Party USA, several progressive student alliances and something called Fight Imperialism — Stand Together among many more. For a school function?
A faction of La Raza — a Latino civil rights organization — is jumping onboard and they are apparently trying to turn this into an "education is a right" message and use this platform for allowing illegal aliens to use in-state tuition as their protest message. M.E.Ch.A is also involved — they're a radical group who wants to reclaim the Southwestern U.S. for Mexico.
What's going on? Well, there's a battle for the hearts and minds of your children. While you're busy trying to make a living and navigate through the daily madness piling up all around you, progressives are working on indoctrinating America's youth, your kids. Everything is about planet worship, social justice and supporting Barack Obama. Just look what's happening in our schools:
