UPDATE 9/24/21: Parents taking their kids out of public schools and Woke environments are voting with their feet and being conscientious heads of families, not passively obedient servants of the State.
UPDATE 9/24/21: The most disturbing prospect for the future is the new generations of grown and yet-to-grow children now totally detached from real history, culture, names, places, personalities, events of past. In place of critical thinking and the ability to sort through varied content of substance, the New Young are adrift in a haze of unsorted, random information and sensory experience. Into the resultant mental vacuum of disorder and chaos can and will be poured the useless vagaries of Woke/Leftist/Utopian “equality” that eclipses individuality, independent thought and the vital need (and privilege) of each soul to grapple productively with life’s challenges.
UPDATE 9/15/21: Perhaps the greatest long term damage done to Americans is that inflicted on the young. Locked down, vaccinated and masked at the whim of U.S. Government bureaucrats and politicians, they are learning subservience and obedience as normalized behavior toward an impersonal, punitive State that considers them little more than disposable serfs. Or maybe just mindlessly malleable voters of the future who will keep the Statists forever in power. Those complicit parents refusing to resist by schooling them at home are betraying their own children’s futures.
UPDATE 4/17/21: Brainwashing the very young through agitprop Identity Politics-setting one group against the other, perpetual victims put upon by perpetual oppressors-is prerequisite for all aspiring dictatorships deliberately making hay out of social disorder and division. Anarchy is the goal. In such an atmosphere thick with the poisonous fog of chaos and fear, power is amassed.
One conscientious father has withdrawn his daughter from a toney private school in Manhattan, decrying the use of Critical Race Theory beginning in kindergarten which characterizes all Whites as the natural oppressor of all Non-Whites. Throwing this blatant racism back into the faces of the so-called non-racists is not well-received by the administration and those parents in lockstep wit this radical chic new cult of Wokeness.
The notion of hypocrisy doesn’t enter the soft brains of these upper-crust Marxists since they are convinced that their phony outrage at “systemic racism” will somehow immunize them come the revolution when the tumbrils roll by and the guillotines start falling. Talk like the proletariat, live like the aristocracy! If there’s anything systemic, it’s systemic guilt and ingratitude for the free, prosperous lives they have been handed…and are now psychotically throwing away as penance for their perceived sins.
Furthermore, how dare one good parent leave the cult and expose them openly for the systemic hate THEY are advocating! This nightmarish mind-bending goes hand-in-hand with the trauma inflicted on millions of children by the Leftist teachers unions using Covid lockdown to forbid schools to open at all. These Leftists are staking claim to the lives of the young, if/when/what/how they are to be raised…and swearing vengeance on those parents with the wherewithal and vision to refuse cooperation in this kidnapping of their children.
UPDATE 3/7/21: Woke children, and no, this is not China or North Korea. A new generation of Teenage Torquemadas, coming right up, right here in the USA. Watch what you say, watch what you do. Watch what you think they might think you said or you think of what they think you might do. Be afraid, be very afraid.
ORIGINAL POST 3/18/18: “Social media platforms are just that. They are a tool, and ISIS can use that tool, and neo-Nazis can use that tool. The large platforms — Google, the Facebook — uh, being the most obvious. They’re shaping our culture in powerful ways, and the most powerful way in which that culture is being shaped right now is the Balkanization of our public conversation. This was already happening with the advent of talk radio and cable. But essentially we now have entirely different realities that are being created with not just different opinions, but now different facts.“
Obama’s recently leaked “secret” speech (aside from being a typically lie-encrusted orgy of self-glorification) reveals the true meaning of his “transformation:” one United Socialist States of America. Like his inept chosen successor, he “deplores” what he repeatedly calls the “Balkanization” of the media (ie, alternative Conservative media underpinning dissension, disagreement, opposition) regarding him and his ilk panting for a monolithic America controlled by himself and his philosophical cronies in high places like DC, the UN and the MSM. Obviously, Balkanization refers to the distinct and separate eastern European nations who didn’t cotton easily to Stalin’s plan to swallow them all whole. This is the language of totalitarian dictatorship countering annoying resistance.
Most ominous is what lies ahead. His early call in 2008 for a “civilian national security force” seems to be coming to fruition in the form of the recently “spontaneous,” suddenly roused “children’s crusade” against the Second Amendment. If this and the chilling cult of personality that has grown around him from the beginning isn’t a clue, nothing is. Last week, a two year old worshiping the female Obama goddess was big news. This week it’s organized bands of Stepford teens chanting in chorus against basic Constitutional rights. As the sinister Hitler Youth sing at the end of “Cabaret,” “the future belongs to me.” Hardly encouraging news despite Hillary’s ongoing self-immolation. The ongoing CULTivation of American youth by Obamatrons and their minions is the stuff of nightmarish horror movies. This one’s called The Children of the Demmed(sic).
