School Teaches Kids ‘The Government Gives Us Rights’ … ALL YOUR KIDS BELONG TO US
(STRENGTH OF CHARACTER)
YES SIR … NO SIR
BEING A GOOD CITIZEN
(BROW BEATEN & DOMESTICATED)
‘Concerned parent Andrew Washburn posted the handout to his Facebook page after his eight-year-old daughter brought home the paper.
Entitled “Being a Good Citizen,” the handout tells children that “rights are special privileges the government gives you,” and that “the government gives us rights.”
According to the paper’s warped logic, “Because the government gives us rights, we have the duty to be good citizens.”
The handout also later states that “Someday you will be given the right to vote,” again implying that this is a right granted by government.’
“You see, I know how important it is to get to children early in their lives and make sure they understand how it is in the world. Otherwise their impressionable minds might be corrupted by falsehoods like the idea that our rights come from our Creator and that we are born with them,” Washburn wrote on his Facebook page.
The bill of rights outlines and protects the constitutional freedoms of all Americans, but even that document cannot be said to confer rights, which are in fact God-given.
The Declaration of Independence clearly points to the fact that rights are not granted by government but are “endowed” by the creator.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Children being taught that government grants individual freedoms (and can therefore take them away on a whim) is not only completely inaccurate, it’s a disturbing insight into how educators are playing an unwitting role in brainwashing the next generation that government is God.
However, this is by no means the first time we’ve seen schools attempting to indoctrinate children with authoritarian propaganda.
School Test Teaches Kids:
“Commands Of Government Officials
Must Be Obeyed By All”
Last year a concerned parent sent in a grammar paper given to his 10-year-old which asked students to re-word the phrase, “The commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.”
A parent of a ten year old was shocked to discover a grammar and writing test paper that their child brought home from school reads more like document from an authoritarian country such as China.
The parent sent a portion of the test paper to Infowars, revealing that it contains sentences such as “The commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.”
The paper uses such sentences and asks school children to replace certain words in order to make the sentence contain a possessive noun.
Others within the paper include:
“The job of a president is not easy.”
“He makes sure the laws of the country are fair”
“The wants of an individual are less important than the needs of a nation”
Here is the portion of the paper:
MIND WASH PROPAGANDA
Ah… all becomes clear. Government contracted education papers telling children that they must obey the commands of the government. Nice.
Along with enforcing government mandated rules such as banning packed lunches, this will be seen by many as yet another example of how the nanny state is encroaching via the public education system.
It’s a concept also being promoted by the mass media. Earlier this year, MSNBC ran a segment pushing the notion that kids belong to the “collective,” and that the “idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families” should be eliminated.
MSNBC Host Melissa Harris-Perry
All Your Kids Belong To Us
Mark Finkelstein noted how MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry considers the unborn child a “thing” which takes a “lot of money” to “turn into a human,” costing thousands of dollars to care for each year of his/her life. Now it appears that Harris-Perry thinks that, after they’re born, children fundamentally belong to the state.
Narrating a new MSNBC “Lean Forward” spot, the Tulane professor laments that we in America “haven’t had a very collective notion that these are our children.” “[W]e have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to their communities,” Harris-Perry argued.
“Once it’s everybody’s responsibility and not just the households, then we start making better investments.” By “investments,” of course, Harris-Perry means things like spending “as much in public education as we should have.”
Of course, if as Harris-Perry holds,”[t]he cost to raise a child [is] $10,000 a year up to $20,000 a year,” and if children should be viewed as collectively “owned” by “society,” then taken to its logical extension, a woman’s choices about having a child should be informed by the economic considerations of the “community,” would it not? But of course, that logic would take someone to justify, for example, the “one-child” policy in Communist China.
What’s more, the notion of collective responsibility for children was a philosophy that undergirded the Cultural Revolution in Communist China under Chairman Mao. I bring that up because, as you may recall, another Harris-Perry “Lean Forward” spot contains a reference to a “great leap forward,” which calls to mind the disastrous agricultural reform plan which starved millions of Chinese to death in the 1950s.
