"The education of all children, from the moment that they can get along without a mother's care, shall be in state institutions at state expense." -Karl Marx
"Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed." -Joseph Stalin
"We have set before ourselves the task of inoculating our youth ... at a very early age ... This new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing." -Adolph Hitler
"I am for socialism, disarmament, and ultimately, for abolishing the state itself ... Communism is the goal." -Roger Nash Baldwin, Co Founder of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
William Federer writes, "In 1963, Democrat Congressman Albert S. Herlong, Jr., warned of the socialist-communist agenda infiltrating schools. He read into the Congressional Record, January 10, 1963, the list of Communist goals for America (Vol 109, 88th Congress, 1st Session, Appendix, pp. A34-A35).
The Communist list included:
- "Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of 'separation of church and state' ...
- Control schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda ...
- Soften curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put party line in textbooks ... Control student newspapers ..."
- Infiltrate churches and replace revealed religion with 'social' religion (ie. 'social justice,' 'liberation theology') ...
- Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a 'religious crutch' ...
- Discredit American culture ...
- Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and divorce ...
- Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as 'normal, natural, healthy’."
We must recognize what we have allowed to creep into our schools. Read more on how America’s public schools have been infiltrated by the Left’s socialist agenda at AmericanMinute.com and PhyllisSchlafly.com.
Is it any wonder that today, after all of the above have been accomplished in America’s public schools from K through 12, and promoted in our institutions of 'higher learning', that the current generation is so easily duped into believing socialism is the answer to America's problems?
Each generation of Americans since the early sixties has been increasingly dislodged from understanding the lessons of history, even our own as a nation, including our Judeo-Christian values and the institutions that came from those values.
It should be no surprise that Socialist Bernie Sanders continues to develop a following among 'disaffected' young people from high school through college, or that a young, attractive and charismatic Latino woman from Brooklyn who knows little or nothing about the history of socialism, defeated a seasoned democrat with her juvenile utopianistic and ignorant view of America, its history, free enterprise, economics, and government.
Michelle Bachman, former Congresswoman from Minnesota, armed with facts, figures and personal experience in Congress, noted that Democrats have registered 12 million more voters than Republicans, in states that require party registration, since Donald Trump was elected President. Guess what age group the majority of these new voters come from.
In the upcoming midterm elections, it is crucial that all freedom-loving American citizens, who cherish the founding principles of liberty, stand against the Left’s agenda and vote. We must prevent the Left's efforts to establish a Socialist state by the hands of pied piper false messiahs who have brainwashed our own youth.
Unless Christians, conservatives, parents, pastors, Christian teachers and administrators step forward to teach the next generation, we may well see the complete dismemberment of our Constitutional Republic.
It is up to this generation of American patriots to stop the communist agenda of socialism in our nation.
