A horrifying report on sexual abuse in Chicago public schools sank without a trace last week. Why?

In what has become a familiar and dismal ritual, the Archbishop of Kansas City, released an apology for sexual abuse by Catholic clergy last week. He joined “bishops across the state of Kansas in offering his deepest apologies to the victims, their families, the faithful of the church, and the Kansas Catholic community at large”

He was responding to a report by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation which identified dozens of Catholic clergy suspected of committing sex crimes against children over the last 70 years.

According to an Associated Press report on Saturday:

… a six-member task force had interviewed 137 victims of abuse, initiated 125 criminal cases and distributed 30 affidavits to prosecutors for charging consideration. Investigators identified 188 clergy members suspected of committing various criminal acts from records that stretched to the 1950s.

Catholics should feel ashamed of these terrible crimes. One abused child is one too many. One hundred and thirty-seven, even over 70 years, is almost too painful to contemplate. And Kansas is a drop in the American bucket; other states have issued similar reports.

However, to eliminate the scourge of child sexual abuse, it’s important to know whether Catholic clergy are the principal perpetrators – as the media often assumes — or whether other institutions have the same problem – or worse.

The latter possibility is looking very likely.

Another scathing report about sexual abuse was released last week. It shone a spotlight on the Chicago Public Schools system. It wasn’t covered by Associated Press, or the Chicago Tribune, or the Washington Post, or the New York Times, or the Boston Globe. In fact, it was barely covered at all.

And yet it was horrifying.

Here is the way Chicago City Wire, a tiny news service, summarized its findings: “Hundreds of Chicago Public Schools teachers sexually groomed, assaulted and raped CPS students last school year.” It included several lurid stories.

Its article was based on a report from the Chicago Public Schools Office of the Inspector General (OIG). It had received more than 470 adult-on-student sexual misconduct allegations during the 2021-22 school year. In 16 cases over the past four years criminal charges were initiated.

Hardly anyone paid attention.

A much bigger website whose focus is education in Chicago ran the news under the headline: “Chicago Public Schools’ watchdog flags unchecked overtime pay, lost students, sexual misconduct”. The sickening allegations were buried at the end of the article.

If the abuse chronicled in this report had happened in a Catholic diocese, it would have been on the front page of every newspaper in the United States – and possibly around the world.

Apparently this is just scratching the surface of the level of abuse in America’s public schools. The Chicago Inspector General’s report reassures readers that: “there is no indication that the frequency of these occurrences is higher within CPS than in other districts nationwide.”

How consoling!

The Inspector-General’s Sexual Allegations Unit (SAU) says that it is the only K-12 investigative unit of its kind in the US. It is also the only entity which publishes public reports. “Reliable statistics from other school districts are simply not available,” it admits.

The SAU reported that between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022, it opened investigations into 81 cases of sexual touching, 35 of grooming, 33 of sexual abuse, 26 of sexual acts, 25 of in-person sexual comments, and 14 sexual electronic communications. There were 243 cases of leering, “creepy” behaviour or other matters of concern. There were numerous cases of school officials who failed to report allegations of sexual misconduct.

And these happened in just one year. And these were only the reported incidents.

What is extremely concerning is that there were only eight cases of “outcry” about past abuse – victims who reported historic sexual abuse. The experience of the Catholic Church shows that there is often a dark cesspit of abuse dating back decades. Victims are often so traumatised that they delay reporting their abusers for years.

But Chicago Public Schools does not seem interested in investigating historic abuse. It has enough work to do in sweeping current abuse under the carpet.

To give a sense of perspective, here is the current status of sexual abuse in the US Catholic Church. According to the most recent annual report by StoneBridge Business Partners, an independent auditor, Catholic organisations received 3,103 allegations between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021– but only 30 related to the current period. And only six of those were substantiated.

Six cases of abuse by clergy in the whole United States in one year is six too many. But it is far fewer than the hundreds credibly reported in the Chicago Public Schools.

When will American parents see reports on other public school systems? When will the Governor issue an apology? When will the Chicago Teachers Union?

America’s Systemic Racism Problem Is Mostly In Woke Education Bureaucracies

The left sees only race. That is the very definition of racism.

America’s Systemic Racism Problem Is Mostly In Woke, Anti-Asian Education Bureaucracies

By: Helen Raleigh, The Federalist, January 06, 2023

Public school officials caused harm to Asian students’ college applications by not notifying them of important academic achievements.

Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin began 2023 by asking the state’s Attorney General Jason Miyares to investigate the allegation that officials at Thomas Jefferson High School (TJ) intentionally withheld notifications of National Merit awards from the school’s students and families (most of them are Asians) in the name of “equity” and “inclusion.”

Asra Q. Nomani, a human rights activist and a proud mom of a TJ graduate, broke the latest scandal at the school right before Christmas. According to Nomani, the scandal was initially uncovered by another TJ mom, Shawna Yashar, whose son took the PSAT test. He was recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation “as a Commended Student in the top 3 percent nationwide — one of about 50,000 students earning that distinction.” It was the kind of honor that would have helped his applications for colleges and scholarships last fall had the TJ officials not withheld his award announcement. When the TJ officials eventually notified him of his award, the deadline for his college applications had already passed, which rendered the award useless.

Nomani learned that her son, a graduate of TJ’s class of 2021, was never told by school officials that he was a “Commended Student” in 2020. Even more infuriating is that these two young men’s experiences were not the result of some honest one-time mistake.

Nomani discovered that “the principal, Ann Bonitatibus, and the director of student services, Brandon Kosatka, have been withholding this information from families and the public for years, affecting the lives of at least 1,200 students over the principal’s tenure of five years.” These officials’ actions (or inactions) disproportionally hurt Asian students because the majority of the school’s student body is Asian. By intentionally withholding awards and eventually delivering them late and in a low-key way, these officials robbed the students and their families of chances to celebrate hard-earned achievements.

In addition, these officials caused undue harm to these students’ college applications and scholarships. For some first-generation immigrants with no other financial resources to fall back on, the damage caused by these school officials’ actions could have a lifetime effect, with some students having to settle for less prestigious colleges or be forced to take out more student loans.

After Nomani broke the story, TJ’s director of student services, Brandon Kosatka, justified her action by insisting, “We want to recognize students for who they are as individuals, not focus on their achievements.” Does she understand that celebrating someone’s achievement and acknowledging someone’s effort is an important part of recognizing students as individuals?

Meanwhile, Bonitatibus “still hasn’t publicly recognized the students or told parents from earlier years that their students won the awards. And she hasn’t yet delivered the missing certificates.”

TJ is a prime example of the woke left’s systemic racism against Asian Americans in our education system. Besides withholding awards, TJ’s woke officials and liberals of the Fairfax County School Board also canceled the school’s merit-based and race-blind admission exam to increase the student body’s “diversity,” which has become a code word for “purging qualified Asians.” The result speaks for itself: Asian students make up 54 percent of the class of 2025, a dramatic decrease from 73 percent of the class of 2021.

Another elite high school that followed TJ’s lead and canceled its merit-based admission in 2021 has experienced disastrous results. San Francisco’s Lowell High School, once the best high school in the city, dropped out of the top 100 ranking of high schools nationwide for the first time in the school’s history after woke officials canceled the school’s merit-based admission and replaced it with a lottery system. After Asian American residents in the city successfully recalled three leftist members of the school board, the new members reinstated merit-based admission at Lowell last year.

At TJ, a group of concerned parents organized a group called the “Coalition for Thomas Jefferson High School,” and they sued Fairfax County Public School District for the school’s “unconstitutional” and discriminatory new admission policy. A federal judge ruled in favor of the coalition last year, but an appeals court stayed the decision.

The coalition filed an emergency petition with the Supreme Court last year, but the high court declined to block TJ’s new anti-Asian admission policy. The high court decided before it heard two cases challenging affirmative action-based admissions policies at the University of North Carolina and Harvard University. The oral arguments of the two cases have given much hope that the Supreme Court will uphold America’s principle of equality under the law by ruling in June this year that affirmative action-based admission policies are unconstitutional.

But Asian Americans cannot rest our hope in one court’s ruling alone. A lot more should be done at the state level. That is why Youngkin’s announcement of launching a civil rights investigation of TJ officials who withheld awards from students is welcome news. Youngkin said, “Parents and students deserve answers. … I believe this failure may have caused material harm to those students and their parents and that this failure may have violated the Virginia Human Rights Act.” Youngkin was spot on.

What these school officials did was a violation of students’ civil rights. Youngkin’s consistent focus on education and the clarity in his messaging explains why many Asian voters supported him during his gubernatorial race.

I sincerely hope Youngkin’s investigation will not only right the wrongs for affected Asian American students and their families at TJ but also become a rallying cry for all patriotic Americans. The most pervasive form of institutional racism widely practiced today in the United States is the anti-Asian hate in our education system. From eliminating gifted and talented programs in K-12, to canceling merit-based entrance exams to elite high schools, to dropping standard tests from college admissions, the objective is to reduce Asian American representation regardless of our qualification and effort because we are the “wrong” kind of minority.

DeSantis Announces Plan To Squash ‘Equity’ At New College Of Florida And Restore Merit

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced his plan to overhaul the ideological education system at New College of Florida (NCF) and restore its original mission.

DeSantis will appoint six new members of NCF’s board of trustees: activist Chris Rufo, Dr. Mark Bauerlein, Dr. Matthew Spalding, Dr. Charles Kesler, lawyer Debra Jenks and educator Jason “Eddie” Speir. The Florida Board of Governors will also appoint a seventh member.

The 13-member board now has enough members to reshape the public college’s ideological courses and campus environment.

“As Governor DeSantis stated in his second inaugural speech: ‘We must ensure that our institutions of higher learning are focused on academic excellence and the pursuit of truth.’ Starting today, the ship is turning around. New College of Florida, under the governor’s new appointees, will be refocused on its founding mission of providing a world-class quality education with an exceptional focus on the classics,” Bryan Griffin, the press secretary for DeSantis, said in a statement.

NCF currently lists among its values “a just, diverse, equitable and inclusive community,” echoing the progressive ideology of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), better known as critical race theory. The school is “actively working toward eliminating outcome disparities for underrepresented and underserved groups,” it says in its values section.

“It is our hope that New College of Florida will become Florida’s classical college, more along the lines of a Hillsdale of the South,” James Uthmeier, Chief of Staff for DeSantis said.

The school provides certain services, like its Office of Inclusive Excellence, a gender studies program and its Gender and Diversity Center. It celebrates “latinx” history month through films, workshops, concerts and lectures, its website says.

NCF’s Office of Inclusive Excellence, the DEI office on campus, documents “outcomes and learnings from Phase I of the Inclusive Campus Climate initiative” and develops “campus-wide DEI key metrics and milestones, and support departmental implementation,” according to its page.

The NCF gender studies program offers courses in queer studies, queer history and feminist philosophy as part of its curriculum. It lists “community relations and organizing” among its potential career paths.

It also provides students with “gender identity affirmation resources” to assist students with legal name changes and updating their pronouns, according to a resource form.

In 2001, the Florida legislature separated NCF from the University of South Florida (USF) system and outlined a mission “combining educational innovation with educational excellence,” and to “provide a quality education to students of high ability who, because of their ability, deserve a program of study that is both demanding and stimulating.”

DeSantis’ promised to challenge ideological education in his inaugural address Tuesday.

“We must ensure school systems are responsive to parents and to students, not partisan interest groups, and we must ensure that our institutions of higher learning are focused on academic excellence and the pursuit of truth, not the imposition of trendy ideology,” DeSantis said

Is Education Even Needed?

Why can’t young adults that want to study physics learn directly from engineers working in the field? Why can’t people who want to learn law learn directly from lawyers? Learning is a lifelong activity. Why should we suspend work for education? Why can’t both happen together?

In precolonial India, the concept of schooling did not exist. Young adults were supposed to find their own gurus, who were professionals in their fields. In return for education/training, they worked in the guru’s field/shop. Gurus were not supposed to charge money. They were, however, expected to ask for Dakhisha, which is Sanskrit for gift or offering. In other words, students were supposed to offer gifts when they graduated, which meant the guru had taught them everything he could. I don’t think the concept of parents’ saving money for education even existed.

This system cost no money, no headache. There were no forms to fill, no stupid classes to drudge through, no school politics, no standardized testing. So many hours of manpower can be saved if we only return to this system, where students and teachers interact directly without interference from administrators, who are mostly unneeded.

This system aligns with the order of nature. Both the student and the teacher mutually chose each other. The student is not forced to listen to to someone they deem incompetent and the teacher is not forced to teach students who are not committed. This volunteerism is important because relationships that are forced become abusive. When teachers are forced to teach students they don’t like, they become abusive. When students are forced to listen to a teacher they don’t like, they become unruly. Therefore, all behavioral issues really stem from dissension from the order of nature.

Two Youtube Shorts I made to explain why school is illegitimate.

Thanks for reading. I want to take humanity back to the order of nature. Man’s artificial principles only cause psychological and mental issues, which later develop into social issues. Share my work so I can heal the world.

More Parents Opt for Public School Alternatives in Post-Covid World

I have often said, the law of unintended consequences are always on our side. And there are cracks where the light gets in. Weaponizing Covid into a Constitutional-crushing power grab by the Democrats is no exception. Shutting down schools for years didn’t just put parents in a vice and harm children, it exposed parents to the indoctrination and dangerous propaganda the schools were ‘teaching’ the children.

Parents left public school in droves. “Be the change….”

As we speak, major school districts nationwide are re-instituting the debilitating-to-children mask mandates.

“There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in,” Leonard Cohen.

Wall Street Journal:

According to a new report from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, enrollment grew 7% at charters between 2019 and 2022, while falling 3.5%, or almost 1.5 million, at traditional public schools over the same period. Catholic schools likewise have seen a boost in attendance, with nationwide enrollment this year up 3.8%, the largest increase in more than two decades. In addition to fleeing traditional public schools for charter and parochial alternatives, thousands of families responded to the Covid crisis by creating “learning pods” or “microschools” for their children (Forsaken Children of a Forged Pandemic)

Nearly 6 in 10 parents preferred learning pods to remote learning and traditional public schools.

Parents took advantage of education options like never before during the pandemic, to the point where K-12 schooling in the years ahead could look a lot different than it did pre-Covid.

In addition to fleeing traditional public schools for charter and parochial alternatives, thousands of families responded to the Covid crisis by creating “learning pods” or “microschools” for their children. This involved bringing together small groups of students who were taught by hired instructors or parent volunteers. The Center on Reinventing Public Education, a research organization based at Arizona State University, has been studying the phenomenon, and its findings are revealing.

Indiana University ‘Distinguished Panelist’ is Deported Palestinian Islamic Jihad Top Dog

Deported Palestinian Islamic Jihad “Master Manipulator” Among Indiana University’s ‘Distinguished’ Panelists

by Steven Emerson, IPT News, December 20, 2022:

Every so often, Sami Al-Arian emerges to opine on some domestic issue, reminding us of two things: He’s an inveterate liar who continues to whitewash his years of service to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). And a disappointing number of American academics are willing to ignore that record and treat him as a credible voice.

Al-Arian joined academics and attorneys last Wednesday for a webinar on “Global War on Terrorism and its Impact on Muslim Charitable Institutions.” It was sponsored by the Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA) in collaboration with Indiana University’s McKinney School of Law and its Muslim Philanthropy Initiative.

MLFA’s willingness to elevate Al-Arian at least is consistent. It helped fund his defense on terrorism related charges and criminal contempt. But why did two Indiana University branches see merit in lending their school’s prestige to a man recorded exhorting an audience with “Jihad is our path … Victory to Islam … Death to Israel”?

He meant it literally, telling his own 2020 academic meeting that the Muslim world “cannot realize its full potential without defeating and dismantling the Zionist project.”

No one on the MLFA/IU panel mentioned Al-Arian’s documented role on the PIJ shura council, or governing board, or the many times he publicly lied by denying any connection to the terrorist group.

Moderator Cindy M. Lott, director of Indiana University’s PhD. program in Philanthropic Leadership, described Al-Arian as “extraordinarily well known. He is the director of the Center for Islamic Global Affairs and Public Affairs Professor at Istanbul Zaim University in Turkey. He has numerous publications in many interrelated fields including education, research, religion, interfaith and he is coming at us today specifically around the areas of civil rights and human rights.”

But Lott was selectively dishonest in how she represented Al-Arian.

After pleading guilty in 2006 to conspiring to provide benefits to the PIJ, presiding federal Judge James S. Moody called Al-Arian “a master manipulator. You looked your neighbors in the eyes and said you had nothing to do with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. This trial exposed that as a lie. Your back-up claim is that your efforts were only to provide charities for widows and orphans. That, too, is a lie. The evidence was clear in this case that you were a leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. You were on the board of directors and an officer, the secretary. Directors control the actions of an organization, even the PIJ; and you were an active leader.”

During Wednesday’s webinar, University of Wisconsin law professor Mark Sidel offered a different description of his colleagues, including Al-Arian. He thanked the organizers for including him on “this extraordinarily distinguished, other than me, group of participants and speakers.”

Academics Against Research

Al-Arian did run a charity. The Islamic Concern Project, also known as the Islamic Committee for Palestine (ICP), was incorporated in 1988 to pursue “the concept of brotherhood, freedom, justice, unity, piety, righteousness and peace” through “charitable, cultural, social, educational and religious” programs, records show.

But in private fundraisers, the ICP served a different mission.

“It is the active arm of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine,” Cleveland Imam Fawaz Damra said while introducing Al-Arian during a videotaped 1991 fundraiser. “We preferred to call it the ‘Islamic Committee for Palestine’ for security reasons.”

At the same event, Al-Arian urged his audience to give money to support the jihad.

“We want today’s Muslims to answer the call of God and to go to jihad,” he said. “… So whoever does not spend for the cause of God, will spend himself on the path to destruction and fire, God forbid! We ask God, praise and glory be to Him, to strengthen us with the truth, put the truth in our hearts and on our tongues, to bestow faith upon us, to bestow steadfastness upon us, to bestow jihad upon us, to bestow knowledge upon us, and to bestow unity upon us so that we will be united. So that we will confront our enemies united.”

At another event, Al-Arian asked, “Have we forgotten the Jews and who they are?” God “made [them] into monkeys and pigs … had cursed in this world and in the hereafter, and had imposed a punishment on them in this world until Judgment Day.”

The MLFA/IU panel, like virtually every group to host Al-Arian, did not find any of this pro-terrorism/antisemitic speech relevant in deciding whether to invite him. Nobody thought to ask how he can reconcile the two diametrically opposing images of his work. Rather, they let him spin more yarns of his own victimization….

Top School Principal Hides Students’ Academic Awards in Name of ‘Equity’

Is there anything more racist and denigrating? Minority children and their parents should be appalled at the vile bigotry of low expectation.

Top school principal hides students’ academic awards in name of ‘equity’

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology

By Asra Q. Nomani, NY Post, December 23, 2022:

The high school had withheld notifications of National Merit awards under the guise of equity.

For years, two administrators at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJ) have been withholding notifications of National Merit awards from the school’s families, most of them Asian, thus denying students the right to use those awards to boost their college-admission prospects and earn scholarships. This episode has emerged amid the school district’s new strategy of “equal outcomes for every student, without exception.” School administrators, for instance, have implemented an “equitable grading” policy that eliminates zeros, gives students a grade of 50 percent just for showing up, and assigns a cryptic code of “NTI” for assignments not turned in. It’s a race to the bottom.

An intrepid Thomas Jefferson parent, Shawna Yashar, a lawyer, uncovered the withholding of National Merit awards. Since starting as a freshman at the school in September 2019, her son, who is part Arab American, studied statistical analysis, literature reviews, and college-level science late into the night. This workload was necessary to keep him up to speed with the advanced studies at TJ, which US News & World Report ranks as America’s top school.

Last fall, along with about 1.5 million US high school juniors, the Yashar teen took the PSAT, which determines whether a student qualifies as a prestigious National Merit scholar. When it came time to submit his college applications this fall, he didn’t have a National Merit honor to report — but it wasn’t because he hadn’t earned the award. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation, a nonprofit based in Evanston, Illinois, had recognized him as a Commended Student in the top 3 percent nationwide — one of about 50,000 students earning that distinction. Principals usually celebrate National Merit scholars with special breakfasts, award ceremonies, YouTube videos, press releases and social media announcements.

But TJ School officials had decided to withhold announcement of the award. Indeed, it turns out that the principal, Ann Bonitatibus, and the director of student services, Brandon Kosatka, have been withholding this information from families and the public for years, affecting the lives of at least 1,200 students over the principal’s tenure of five years. Recognition by National Merit opens the door to millions of dollars in college scholarships and 800 Special Scholarships from

[….]

In a call with Yashar, Kosatka admitted that the decision to withhold the information from parents and inform the students in a low-key way was intentional. “We want to recognize students for who they are as individuals, not focus on their achievements,” he told her, claiming that he and the principal didn’t want to “hurt” the feelings of students who didn’t get the award. A National Merit spokeswoman said that the organization’s officials “leave this honor exclusively to the high school officials” to announce. Kosatka and Bonitatibus didn’t respond to requests for comment. In a rare admission, Fabio Zuluaga, an assistant superintendent at Fairfax County Public Schools, told me that the school system has erred not telling students, the public, and families about awards: “It was a mistake to be honest.” Zuluaga said it also isn’t enough just to hand over a certificate. “We have to do something special,” he said. “A commendation sends a very strong message to the kid, right? Your work is meaningful. If you work hard in life, there are good benefits from that.”

Here’s What’s In The ‘Obscene’ Books Being Removed From Schools Across The Country

Through 2022, parents across the country have fought to have books deemed “age inappropriate” and “pornographic” removed from schools.

Across 5,000 schools, more than 1,600 book titles were removed in the 2021-2022 school year, according to NBC News. The books most commonly removed from schools, including “Gender Queer: A Memoir” and “All Boys Aren’t Blue,” contain images of masturbation and explicit descriptions of sexual encounters.

“Parents across the country have organically risen to fight the obviously age-inappropriate material that has crept into public schools,” Brooke Stephens, a member of Utah Parents United, a group focused on parental rights in education, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Once they see it, they know it’s wrong and they won’t give up until it’s gone.”

“Gender Queer” the most challenged book in schools, is about a character with “e/em/eir” pronouns navigating being queer. The book contains cartoon images of a boy masturbating and performing oral sex on another man.

All Boys Aren’t Blue,” a memoir about the experience of a black queer boy growing up, does not contain graphic images but describes graphic sexual encounters.

“He reached his hand down and pulled out my dick,” “All Boys Aren’t Blue” states. “He quickly went to giving me head. I just sat back and enjoyed it as I could tell he was, too.”

School districts in Missouri have removed more than 300 books from school libraries to follow a state law that prohibits sexually explicit content from the classroom, according Education Week. In Utah, about 280 book complaints were filed in nine of the state’s 41 school districts since May.

Alpine School District, Utah’s largest school district, removed 52 books for “inappropriate content” including “Gender Queer” and “All Boys Aren’t Blue.”

Other books removed from school districts for their sexually explicit content included “This Book Is Gay,” a book that has been described as a “how to” guide for the LGBTQ community. The book offers tips on anal sex, hand jobs and suggests dating apps to find LGBTQ partners.

“A GOOD HANDIE is all about the wrist action. Rub the head of his cock back and forth with your hand,” “This Book Is Gay” stated. “Try different speeds and pressures until he responds positively.”

The book “Flamer,” a story about a gay boy, has also been challenged in several school districts as it explicitly describes sexual interactions.

Books such as “Gender Queer” are being removed because they are being deemed obscene, which is different from being considered “sexually explicit,” PEN America, an organization working to keep books in schools, stated on their website.

“The term ‘obscenity’ is being stretched in unrecognizable ways because the concept itself is widely accepted as grounds for limiting access to content,” PEN America stated. “But many of the materials now being removed under the guise of obscenity bear no relation to the sexually explicit, deliberately evocative content that the term has historically connoted.”

“We not only applaud the schools that have taken their time to look at these books and have decided to remove them from their media center shelves because they contain no literary value and are obscene in nature; but we also agree that for those books that are not being completely removed, control is given to the parents,” Xiomara Castro, a chapter leader of No Left Turn In Education, a group focused on parental rights in education, told the DCNF. “Let the parents decide what their kids can and cannot read.”

Alpine School District and PEN America did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

How the Chinese regime targets professors and schools to censor and indoctrinate worldwide

Editor’s Note: This is the third piece in a six-part series by J. Michael Waller on Beijing’s global network of Confucius Institutes.


Pressure on other faculty

The Confucius Institutes serve as outposts to spy or inform on American professors with China expertise who have no Institute affiliation.

The intent is to influence scholars not to divert from the CCP line while teaching their students in American classrooms, and to provide the CCP with an enforcement mechanism to deny access to China that any scholar of the country would need to remain academically relevant.

Such professors “have also reported feeling pressure in their classes to watch what they say and avoid Confucius Institute taboos. Many are wary that the wrong statement might land them on a blacklist, forbidden from visiting China for research.”[42]

The Institutes’ presence on campus then allows the CCP to apply pressure on American university leaders to ensure Party conformity in their American classrooms. Similar pressure has been reported in other countries.

Targeted professors “believe university administrators are tiptoeing around China – and asking their professors to do the same – to make sure nothing interrupts the profitable relationship with the Confucius Institute. ‘This is my career and livelihood on the line,’ said one senior professor … explaining why he wished to remain anonymous in [a National Association of Scholars] critique of Confucius Institutes.”[43]

And so the United Front Work Department enlists willing and unwilling foreigners to act on behalf of the CCP.

Distinguished scholars critical of the Confucius Institutes found themselves marginalized and alienated from their own corrupt peers even before these institutes get off the ground.

A French Ministry of the Armed Forces report recounted, “the implementation of a CI [Confucius Institute] in a university often brings about controversies, and is susceptible to divide the teaching staff, if not marginalize some of the best specialists on China because they are critical of CIs and, as such, of their colleagues cooperating with the institute, or receiving its funding.”[44]

One scholar explained, “even the most well-established experts in Chinese studies can find themselves isolated and at odds with their colleagues when they raise concerns. The worst-case scenario is when academics no longer feel able to work in a university that does not respect their professional standards, suffering from ostracization, exclusion from the university, and denial of promotion….”[45]

Some academics report being physically threatened for criticizing the Confucius Institutes. The French report cites a 2021 case in Slovakia, in which the director of the Bratislava Confucius Institute “attempted to intimidate” the director of the Central European Institute of Asia Studies, Matej Simalcik, considered “one of the leading China experts in Central Europe.” After publishing research on CCP influence in the Slovakian educational system, Simalcik received a letter from the head of the Bratislava Confucius Center, who made “explicit threats” against his person.[46]

Infiltration of Western educational institutions

China infiltrated the Ministry of Education in the Australian state of New South Wales which, as the French study noted, meant that “Beijing had appointed employees (potentially agents) inside an Australian ministry.”[47] The CCP provided language curriculum and study aids, which Australian taxpayers funded, and some schools made the CCP materials mandatory. “This decision shocked many parents, some describing this program ‘as the infiltration of the Chinese Communist Party into the NSW public school system.’”[48]

Propaganda themes and non-themes

Confucius Institutes dutifully promoted CCP themes and non-themes (that is, subjects forbidden for discussion under Party policy) in their language and cultural education programming.

China and Chinese life were portrayed as the CCP wanted them portrayed, while subjects awkward for the Party, such as human rights, religious persecution, the conquest of Hong Kong, the repression of Tibet and Xinjiang, and the present status or future invasion of Taiwan, were forbidden for discussion or avoided.[49] The Uighur minority in Xinjiang, Tibet and Tibetan people, supporters of Taiwan’s independence, the Falun Gong spiritual movement, and democracy activists are referred by the CCP as the “five poisons.”[50]

Many if not most of the American institutions conceded to CCP pressure and permitted – even enforced – the self-censorship.

Some “larger, more prestigious” schools “reportedly have successfully pushed back against or prevented PRC interference in university events, such as speaking engagements by the Dalai Lama and other figures opposed by the Chinese government,”[51] but the examples are few.

North Carolina State University, after being squeezed by its own Confucius Institute, disinvited the Dalai Lama in 2009.[52] The university sponsored four outside Confucius Classrooms, ran an estimated 636,000 people through the covert CCP programs, and “trained some 1,330 teachers in how to teach and talk about China.”[53]

Then there is the issue of reciprocity. There is no genuine academic exchange between the Confucius Institutes worldwide and schools in mainland China. Everything is one-way.

Money has also been a gray area. The Congressional Research Service observed what it called “possible incomplete reporting by U.S. universities to the Department of Education regarding funds received from China for their Confucius Institutes,”[54] raising the possibility of fraud and corruption in American higher learning. This fits what appears to be a larger pattern of non-reporting of CCP funding of US education. The FBI found that even among the most prominent faculty of the most prominent universities received large sums – often millions of dollars – through secret or unreported side deals with Chinese Communist Party schools, organizations, laboratories, and companies under the Party’s “Thousand Talents” program.[55]

It isn’t only dishonest individual faculty or even academic departments, but entire schools that engage in fraudulent activity and misleading reporting to conceal cash they receive from the CCP. A bipartisan Senate investigative report found that “Nearly 70 percent of U.S. schools with a Confucius Institute that received more than $250,000 in one year for Confucius Institutes failed to properly report that information to the Department of Education.”[56]

Saying ‘American’ Is Now RACIST and Stanford University’s List of Other UNACCEPTABLE WORDS

The Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative is a “multi-phase” project of Stanford’s IT leaders.

“Stanford University” – now there’s an unacceptable term.

What will it take for the people rise against this leftist scourge destroying the country?

Stanford Scrambles To Hide List Calling ‘American’ Racist or ‘Harmful’ Language

By: Valient News, December 22, 2022:

Despite Stanford’s claims, the debate on the term “Americans” arises not out of racism, but linguistic differences between English and Spanish speakers.

Stanford University has demanded that citizens of the United States should not be referred to as “Americans,” deeming it harmful and racist language use.

In May, Stanford published an index of offensive words, as part of their “Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative,” which they described as a “multi-phase, multi-year project to address harmful language in IT at Stanford.”

“The goal of the Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative is to eliminate* many forms of harmful language, including racist, violent, and biased (e.g., disability bias, ethnic bias, ethnic slurs, gender bias, implicit bias, sexual bias) language in Stanford websites and code,” the university wrote on its website.

Guide to Acceptable Words: Behold the school’s Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative — Wall Street Journal

By The Editorial Board, Dec. 19, 2022:

Parodists have it rough these days, since so much of modern life and culture resembles the
Babylon Bee. The latest evidence is that Stanford University administrators in May published
an index of forbidden words to be eliminated from the school’s websites and computer code,
and provided inclusive replacements to help re-educate the benighted.

Call yourself an “American”? Please don’t. Better to say “U.S. citizen,” per the bias hunters,
lest you slight the rest of the Americas. “Immigrant” is also out, with “person who has
immigrated” as the approved alternative. It’s the iron law of academic writing: Why use one
word when four will do?

You can’t “master” your subject at Stanford any longer; in case you hadn’t heard, the school
instructs that “historically, masters enslaved people.” And don’t dare design a “blind study,”
which “unintentionally perpetuates that disability is somehow abnormal or negative,

Appeared in the December 20, 2022, print edition as ‘The Stanford Guide to Acceptable Words’.
furthering an ableist culture.” Blind studies are good and useful, but never mind; “masked
study” is to be preferred. Follow the science.

“Gangbusters” is banned because the index says it “invokes the notion of police action against
‘gangs’ in a positive light, which may have racial undertones.” Not to beat a dead horse (a
phrase that the index says “normalizes violence against animals”), but you used to have to get
a graduate degree in the humanities to write something that stupid.

The Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative is a “multi-phase” project of Stanford’s IT
leaders. The list took “18 months of collaboration with stakeholder groups” to produce, the university tells us. We can’t imagine what’s next, except that it will surely involve more make-
work for more administrators, whose proliferation has driven much of the rise in college

tuition and student debt. For 16,937 students, Stanford lists 2,288 faculty and 15,750
administrative staff.

The list was prefaced with (to use another forbidden word) a trigger warning: “This website
contains language that is offensive or harmful. Please engage with this website at your own
pace.”

Evidently it was all too much for some at the school to handle. On Monday, after the index
came to light on social media, Stanford hid it from public view. Without a password, you
wouldn’t know that “stupid” made the list.

Republican Cracks Down on Trans Bathroom Policies After High School Restroom Assault

The top education official in a heavily Republican state is cleaning house, demanding that all public school districts and charter school have policies respecting the privacy of female students, after a male who identifies as female allegedly beat up two teenage girls in a high school restroom.

No media outlet covered the altercation, which took place on October 26, until the website Reduxx got a copy of the police report on December 12. According to police, a teenage boy became enraged when a teenage girl ignored him when he initiated conversation inside the girl’s restroom of Edmond Memorial High School in Edmond, Oklahoma. The boy then asked if she “wanted to fight” and came at her with clenched fists, pulled her hair, and threw her to the ground. the police report says. The girl said she was too weak to fight back. An eyewitness said the boy then “kicked her in the head and the back 2 times,” then punched her repeatedly. Another female said she intervened to stop the fight, because the attacker “is a man,” but said the boy punched her in the face twice; the police report described the second girl as having sustained a “possible concussion.”

“This is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in the state of Oklahoma,” said Oklahoma Secretary of Education Ryan Walters (R) in an online video. Walters said he would launch a state-level investigation into Edmond Public Schools — but he would also require all Oklahoma public school districts to notify parents of their restroom policies and submit them to Walters for review. “Our legislature and governor passed and signed a bill that says boys cannot go into girls’ restrooms for this precise reason,” said Walters. “We will not allow the radical Left’s Woke ideology to endanger our girls by having boys in the girls’ restrooms, where assaults like this can happen.”

Walters previously critiqued public schools in Stillwater after outraged parents complained that administrators opened restrooms to teenagers of both sexes. “You have chosen radicals over your students, ideology over biology, and ‘wokeness’ over safety,” Walters wrote to Stillwater education officials on April 8. “Today I am asking you to work with your fellow board members to make it so that your students only use the bathroom of their God-given natural sex. Biological males should not receive unrestricted access to women’s restrooms, leaving our young girls uncomfortable and afraid to enter them during school.”

“It’s wonderful to see Oklahoma’s Education Secretary Ryan Walters prioritizing the safety of girls over the desires of boys to be accepted as girls,” Meg Kilgannon, senior fellow for Education Studies at Family Research Council, told The Washington Stand.

A month after Walters’s letter to Stillwater, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt (R) signed S.B. 615, which requires schools to designate all restrooms or changing areas used by more than one person for the “exclusive use” of one sex. Schools must make a “reasonable accommodation” by providing a single-use restroom or changing area to students who do not wish to comply. Any school district that refuses to implement this policy would lose 5% of state funding in the next year, and parents would have a “cause of action” to sue noncompliant schools.

Three students, represented by the ACLU and Lambda Legal, sued the state Department of Education this fall, alleging in court filings that people who identify as transgender are “being singled out for discriminatory unequal treatment.”

“Education officials in school districts across the country have been pressured by outside agitators like the ACLU, SPLC, GLSEN, and the Human Rights Campaign to adopt progressive and dangerous policies that undermine children’s safety and learning. In the face of this relentless pressure, it takes leadership to restate the commonsense values that parents expect and under which all children can thrive,” Kilgannon told TWS.

Walters also criticized the legacy media for refusing to cover the story of the alleged transgender physical assault for nearly two months. A Google search found that, as of this writing, the Edmond transgender restroom assault had not been reported by The New York TimesThe Washington PostThe Wall Street Journal, the Associated PressNBC NewsABC NewsCBS NewsReutersAxios, or Vice News.

Local media also suppressed the story of the transgender restroom attack. “I don’t think it meets the threshold to be ‘news,’” wrote Wendy Suares, a reporter for the area’s Fox affiliate, KOKH. The incident came as Virginia’s Loudoun County public school officials found themselves embroiled in controversy — and ultimately indicted — for denying that a male student who identifies as “gender fluid” sexually assaulted a teenage girl in a school restroom. Instead, officials had the girl’s outraged father arrested at a school board meeting, after quietly transferring the student to another school, where he reportedly molested another female student.

“Schools are for educating children, not ‘fixing them,’ promoting politics, or virtue signaling,” Kilgannon told TWS. “Thanks to Secretary Walters for this effort.”

Edmond Public School Superintendent Angela Grunewald responded in an oddly upbeat video that the school did not know the alleged perpetrator was a male, because his birth certificate did not mark his gender. Grunewald said her school district follows all applicable state laws and punished the male for fighting, as well as using the restroom facilities of the opposite sex.

Walters, who is running to become State Superintendent for Education, has promised to thoroughly review all state schools for compliance with the law — and, most importantly, to protect the safety and privacy of underage girls.

Walters’s “review of school policies just might reveal additional work to be done in 2023,” Kilgannon told TWS. “Something tells me he’s ready to do whatever it takes to protect all the children in his charge.”

RYAN WALTERS: We Are Fighting Back Against The Left’s Radical Education Agenda In Oklahoma. Here’s How…

Despite Republicans securing a narrow majority in the House, Democrats have managed to maintain control of the Senate. To make matters worse, Joe Biden still sits in the White House where he can cram his radical education agenda down American parents’ throats across the country.

The tide is turning.

Oklahoma’s parents said “enough is enough,” and helped me crush my Democratic opposition in order to stop the left from indoctrinating our children in the classroom. I intend to take the fight to the left as the State Superintendent for Education.

The election night results speak for themselves. My Democratic opponent lost the race by a large margin. If that doesn’t say Oklahomans want a change, I don’t really know what does. Our state wants to send a message to Biden and his left-wing allies: “Oklahoma won’t go woke!”

Conservative states are fighting back against the radical Biden agenda and ensure that students receive an education that ensures students know American history without indoctrination, maximizes parental empowerment and provides transparency so that taxpayers can hold bureaucrats responsible for every dollar spent by our schools.

We are stopping Critical Race Theory from being taught, stopping access to obscene pornography in our schools, and ending the tenure of radicalism and indoctrination of our kids because the left is waging a civil war in the our classrooms. No child should be told that they are racist.

Kids should graduate knowing how our country was founded and what those foundational elements are because it opens their future to be actively involved long-term.

Increase teacher pay so we get highly qualified teachers who know how to teach. Fifty-one percent of every dollar in Oklahoma goes to administrative costs. Oklahoma has invested more than $1 billion in recurring revenue for schools in the last 10 years.

That money has failed to reach the classroom and we must reverse that trend.

Decrease the bureaucracy by eliminating duplication and social-emotional learning that is the backbone of indoctrination. By holding administrators accountable we can return classroom teaching back to the basic fundamental needs that teach kids skill sets that prepare them for the workforce.

Every dollar should follow the kids. Parents should direct where their kids go to school. No exceptions. Empowering parents with choices and decisions is the only way to move Oklahoma from being bottom in education to leading the country in reform.

Radical change is the only way to move forward. We will not allow our kids to be collateral damage in this fight and we will not let the status quo be the standard for Oklahoma’s future.

The left has pushed for the most radical agenda we’ve ever seen.

We are fighting back, we will improve our kids’ education, and we will win this war.

Ryan Walters is the secretary of Education for Oklahoma. He is currently running for State Superintendent.

PODCAST: What do all Communist Globalists have in common? They LIE!

Until we recognize that the Globalists are our enemy, that they are in both parties, and unless we call them our enemy, we lose. These people are NOT true Americans. They want the destruction of America. For the past 60 years, they have taught our kids that America is the enemy. Where are these kids today? In government, media, and wall street. Who is their enemy? Americans.

Slowly these globalists have turned America’s bureaucratic agencies into the private military operation Barack Obama wanted.

Help Wanted: “Candidate must CARRY A FIREARM AND BE WILLING TO USE DEADLY FORCE.”

A new ad for police? NO! for the IRS!

Who is at risk from armed IRS agents? Why Americans, of course. After all, Americans, MAGA, are the enemy.

What do they think of us?

The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.” – Club of Rome, a premier environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations.

What do Globalists believe: “Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.” – Professor Maurice King, Agenda 21.

Americans are the enemy. They are too rich, have too many luxuries, and must be cut down to the rest of the world. They want us controlled, impoverished, enslaved, or dead. They will stop at nothing to maintain power. So they merged agencies and armed them while taking away Americans’ means of protection.

All policies in the Green Broke Deal can be found in UN Agenda 21. This document is over 300 pages, 40 chapters of total control over the means of production and distribution of all means of human activity. Today this document goes by many names, i.e.:

  • Great Reset,
  • Green New Deal,
  • Build Back Better,
  • Agenda 2030,
  • Sustainable Development,
  • Resilient Cities.

But remember, a name change is not a content change. They all lead to one place, the destruction of America and western civilization.

Who are these Globalists? Where did they get their ideas? Remember, as I said before, these people are not Americans. They want the destruction of America and will do whatever it takes to make that happen. Globalists follow their leaders. The original elite was educated in the Frankfort School; today, the Aspen Institute, UN, and WEF carry the agenda. Sadly, Globalists take the worst from each ideology, and merge them together into an illogical, incoherent, overly expensive policy designed to destroy American values and culture.

Here are a few of the founders of the Marxist DNC and RINOs and what they promote:

John Maynard Keynes – Keynesian economics 1883-1946 – Keynes stated that if Investment exceeds saving, there will be inflation. If saving exceeds Investment, there will be a recession. “For the engine which drives Enterprise is not Thrift, but Profit.” businesses and people tighten their belts and spend less money. Lower spending results in demand falling further, and a vicious circle ensues of job losses and further falls in spending. Keynes’s solution to the problem was that governments should borrow money and boost demand by pushing the money into the economy. Once the economy recovered, and was expanding again, governments should pay back the loans. Keynes’s view that governments should play a major role in economic management is marked.

Karl Marx – 1883  Communism, Das Kapital – While many equate Karl Marx with socialism, his work on understanding capitalism as a social and economic system remains a valid critique in the modern era. In Das Kapital (Capital in English), Marx argues that society is composed of two main classes: Capitalists are the business owners who organize the process of production and who own the means of production such as factories, tools, and raw material, and who are also entitled to any and all profits.

The other, much larger class comprises labor (which Marx termed the “proletariat”). Laborers do not own or have any claim to the means of production, the finished products they work on, or any of the profits generated from sales of those products. Rather, labor works only in return for a money wage. Marx argued that because of this uneven arrangement, capitalists exploit workers.

Fabian – 1884

Fabianism became prominent in British socialist theory in the 1880s. The early Fabians rejected the revolutionary doctrines of Marxism, recommending instead a gradual transition to a socialist society. When Fabianism emerged in the United Kingdom during the 1880s, collectivism was widely considered necessary for human flourishing. believed that substantial state intervention would be necessary if ordinary individuals were to prosper. That dominant position also involved  collective responsibility for children’s education and nutrition, housing, and employment, along with support for care of the sick and aged.

Thomas Robert Malthus – 1766-1834 best known for his theory that population growth will always tend to outrun the food supply and that betterment of humankind is impossible without stern limits on reproduction. This thinking is commonly referred to as Malthusianism. The population will always expand to the limit of subsistence. Only “vice” (including “the commission of war”), “misery” (including  famine or want of food and ill health), and “moral restraint” (i.e., abstinence) could check this excessive growth.

Machiavellianism – named after the political philosophy of Niccolò Machiavelli,  In the field of personality psychology, Machiavellianism is a personality trait centered on manipulativeness, callousness, and indifference to morality. The political philosophy is that “the ends justify the means.” Those who follow this political concept are likelier to have a high level of deceitfulness and an unempathetic temperament.

Hegelian Dialectic – The ruling elite creates the crisis. They let the crisis fester until it becomes normalized. Something other than the real cause is blamed. Once the crisis escalates, the people demand a solution. The solution is offered by the same elite who created the problem.  This process is repeated over and over and simultaneously until the desired elite agenda is achieved.

World Economic Forum WEF – Klaus Schwab “You will own nothing and be happy.” The first thing to go is your personal car.

WEF Dr. Harari: Just give the humans drugs and video games, and they will be happy.

FBI terror list: https://republicbrief.com/fbis-cheat-sheet-for-dangerous-militia-symbols-includes-betsy-ross-flag/

‘Extremist’ symbols on the leaked FBI list include the so-called ‘Betsy Ross’ flag from 1777, The ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ Gadsden flag, the ‘2A’ abbreviation for the Second Amendment, and the ‘Tree of Liberty.’

Globalists believe that humans are nothing more than animals and should be corralled into cities where they will be easier to control. The government will control electricity, energy, food, healthcare mobility, housing, employment, and education. They do not care about the damage they do to the people because the people are the enemy. After they have destroyed MAGA, they will find another group to vilify.

As the late, great George Carlin said, “They have a club, and we ain’t in it.” As long as the Globalists are living la vida loca, they do not care. We can rot. You can see their indifference and disdain for the illegals sent to Martha’s Vinyard. Thanks to Obama’s parting gift of executive order 12333,

Expanding Surveillance Powers to spy on Americans, all agencies are merging information and are now armed to fight Americans. New rules issued by the Obama administration under Executive Order 12333 will let the NSA — which collects information under that authority with little oversight, transparency, or privacy concern — share the raw streams of communications it intercepts directly with agencies, including the FBI, the DEA, and the Department of Homeland Security, according to a New York Times report.

How do they want us to live?

Sustainable Development means control. Humans will be forced off rural lands and forced into cities so rural land can go back to the animals and humans can be controlled. They can’t get me, you say. Have a smart meter? The globalists control the power in your house. Find out more.

The Globalists know:

  1. Everything in America today is connected.
  2. There are no coincidences or random acts.
  3. Everything has a plan.
  4. All plans are based on lies.

Money, Power, and Control are their mantra. The Next time you hear about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), switch the words around and say Diversity, Inclusion, Equity to DIE. That is what they want us to do, and you will make them nuts.

Is America worth saving?

War on Parents: The Left Calls Out the Big Guns

The Left has called out the big guns in the War on Parents.  For those concerned about the early sexualization of children, there’s a lot more to worry about than just the small arms fire of individual school boards and teachers.  It’s time to pay attention to the infrastructure and institutionalized support networks behind them.

The biggest child abuser of them all just may be the state of California.  The state has been moving for the early release of inmates to reduce the prison population for the last five years.  The result has been more than 7,000 sex offenders convicted of “lewd or lascivious acts” with children under 14 being released in the same year they were convicted.  Those released early include kidnappers and rapists.

California is closely followed by Planned Parenthood whose sex education director has claimed babies are sexual from birth and children should be given pornography.  Planned Parenthood propaganda proclaims “sexuality is a part of life through all the ages and stages.”  If pornography is taught in the classroom, some kids will want to watch it and that’s a good thing, the director says.  This from a guy who wants to start sex education in kindergarten.

Big Philanthropy is not far behind.  The Walton family and their Walmart Foundation have given millions of dollars for LGBTQ-related causes, including drag queen story hours and drag shows for children.  Their money also funded a kid zone at a gay pride festival and a nearby ‘Sensory Zone’ targeting autistic children.  Why autistic children?  Because they have trouble grasping gender concepts, making them perfect fodder for the transgender-industrial complex.

The American Library Association is another big gun.  The ALA views any attempt to keep pornography out of the hands of children as ‘censorship’.  It works with well-funded LGBT pressure groups to train librarians how to thwart the efforts of parents and public officials to fight pornography in public libraries and how to disarm the media.  Hostility to religion is on full display.  Demonization of parents is a go-to technique.  So are shutting up parents at library board meetings and making them jump through hoops to challenge particular books.  The purpose of libraries pushing pornography is to “change lives” and soften kids up for acceptance of the gay political agenda.  Librarians relabel pornography as ‘diverse materials’ and deflect criticism by saying libraries just put books out there and it’s up to parents to monitor what their kids are reading.  But the ALA’s actions go way beyond that, feverishly collaborating with left-wing groups to oppose parental oversight boards and other parental rights measures in state legislatures around the country.

In essence, what public libraries are demanding is for taxpayers to continue to fund them, but for the public not to have any say in what materials are placed on their shelves.  That’s crazy.

The early sexualization of children is metastasizing and institutionalizing, with further examples of TV ads featuring teddy bears in bondage attire, a doll company telling kids how to get puberty blockers without their parents knowing, and hospitals offering sex toys to minors.

I’ve documented in previous commentaries how the early sexualization of children is a communist technique intended to destroy society.  I’ve also mentioned no society has survived the loosening of its sexual mores.  If you support the gay rights groups and others I’ve mentioned here today in their attempts to sexualize children early, understand you are being manipulated by the professional political Left every step of the way.  Understand also you are playing with fire, and it will burn your house down.  Let’s leave adult activities to the adults, OK?
