VIDEO: Florida School Board Member Bridget Ziegler Discusses Critical Race Theory

As an outspoken Pro-Trump Conservative Republican, I have fielded my share of weird and nasty attacks, but NOTHING compares to the baseless, crazy attacks my wife takes on a daily basis from The Left for being a Pro-Parent Conservative on the School Board.

Yet, Bridget continues to power thru and do her part to help protect our kids and set the next generation on a path towards success.

Today, those efforts were on full display as she appeared on Fox News for an extended conversation about her fight against Critical Race Theory at the local level and Governor DeSantis’ leadership on this important issue at the state level.

Watch the clip above, and then send her a note if you have any feedback. Her email is:

We need more of this proactive Conservative leadership across the state and country. I hope you are recruiting some solid School Board Candidates in your local area and holding the currently elected School Board Members accountable.

American Education is Training for Dogs, Not Students!

A fact is a piece of information that can be proved with concrete evidence. An opinion is a view or judgment about something and can change often. Education is supposed to immerse the individual in facts so that whenever a decision is needed, the individual can make the most logical, common-sense decision.

Historical Facts: Thousands of white people died in the Civil War trying to end slavery. The voting rights act was passed in 1965. The Great Society Legislation passed in 1964-65, spending millions on urban renewal, medical care, housing, and transportation for rural and inner-city blacks.

Sensible conclusion: Discrimination/oppression of black people ended a long time ago.

While a fact refers to something true or real, which is backed by evidence, documentation, etc. Example: the moon’s temperature ranges from -298F at night to 224F during the day, which has been determined and confirmed by astronomers, scientists, and lunar landings.

On the other hand, opinion is what a person believes or thinks about something. Example: I think the moon is made of green cheese; it sure looks like it on a cloudy night, don’t you agree?

Facts make use of the left brain, and by using proper skills, the individual can reason, prioritize, and come to a logical conclusion. Once these skills are realized, the individual can make quick, common-sense decisions. Example: If in multiplication 5 x 3=15, then in division 15 divided by 3=5.

Facts are universal and only change when solid, verifiable evidence is found that refutes the fact. Example: For centuries, wise men believed the earth was flat. When explorers returned with evidence there is no end-point, the earth is round, and you can circumnavigate it, the fact was changed.

Opinions use the right brain where emotion will guide the decision, often making judgments without basis. Emotion is a learned response to a particular situation. Emotions are abstract and often personal, so they are easily changed.

A person can only think of one thought at a time. If only the left brain is developed, then the individual has little time for issues that involve emotional responses, i.e., art, movies. If only the right brain is developed, the individual can not reason, lacks common sense, and will often make decisions based on how things look rather than how they operate.

It’s very difficult to understand the relationship between SEL, CRT, and CRT because they are three different approaches to the same thing, Emotionally controlling the people.

Critical Race Theory: CRT is a Theory, a system of rules, procedures, and assumptions used to produce a result. Who’s opinion, who’s assumption, what if I disagree? Many common tactics in CRT training, including segregating people by race, race-shaming, ascribing certain attributes to people based on race, and ” claims that by virtue of race, a person is inherently racist or inclined to oppress others.” You must assume things to be true.

Social-Emotional Learning: SEL forces the child to see all issues under an emotional lens, often shutting down the right brain to logic and reason. Too often, the child gets so emotionally charged that they become unruly (so involved in their emotion) and no longer have the ability to express themselves. They no longer have the ability to listen to an opposing viewpoint because it doesn’t make them “feel better.” So Johnny, who had a bad feeling from reading about the boy who lost his life getting hit by a train, gets mad at the engineer instead of asking why the boy was on the track to begin with. Emotion overplays logic.

The purpose of school is to disseminate factual information for a person to store in their brain and use at a later time when needed to make informed decisions, i.e., common sense. However, a person thinking through emotion will never have a firm footing. They will constantly be thinking, how do I feel about that? How am I making others feel? Decision-making becomes a horror. Emotion changes constantly. Because Facts rarely change once the individual knows facts, they become more secure in their decisions.

A student taught to think of everything in terms of SEL will become an emotional person incapable of having a conversation with an opposing perspective. They lack common sense and don’t have the ability to draw conclusions logically. They allow others to make decisions for them rather than risk hurting someone else.

Johnny White, Suzie Black, Jose Brown were in class. The teacher asked what 2 plus 2 is. Johnny knows the answer but is afraid to raise his hand because the rest of the students will think he has white privilege. Suzie thinks she knows the answer but won’t say anything because what if she is wrong and the others laugh at her and hurt her feelings⏤she will just want to die. Jose knows the answer but won’t talk because he will get a passing grade for coming to school. How does this create excellence?

And the answer is…IT DOESN’T.

But the goal is not excellence, the goal is division. The ruling class of Globalists doesn’t want people to come together as Americans. They don’t want the populace to think logically or to think factually. They don’t want people to communicate because they might have an opposing view. They don’t care about the truth because the ends justify the means. They want the populace to be trained to think about how they have designed the world to think emotionally. Emotional people are easier to control – no opposition. They want the people to “stay in their lane.”

Culturally Responsive Teaching is a pedagogy that recognizes the importance of including students’ cultural references in all aspects of learning. CRT is a fancy term for multiculturalism (dividing people by ethnicity) which means stay in your tribe. No exploring America or American values of being the best you can be, you must be the same as everyone else in your tribe. Instead of students learning the “new ” ways of American exceptionalism where they can make their own choices, they must choose from what the rulers have offered. Instead of people coming together as Americans, they stay apart based on ethnicity. CRT will constantly divide the population. Culturally Responsive Teaching | Teaching Diverse Learners

The inability to make clear decisions based on facts too often pushes the person into an emotional dilemma. I am stuck, they think. I can’t make a decision. I am an emotional mess. Where are my pills? If I give the right answer, will my compatriots think I am a racist? I’ll kill myself rather than be called a racist. There is a reason why the suicide rate is climbing.

By eliminating facts, skills, and morality, the person never has a firm footing. Things change all the time. Not being on a secure footing destroys confidence and self-esteem.  This type of training is now filtered throughout all disciplines. ELA, MATH, SS, Science are all seen through an emotional racial lens called diversity, inclusion, reparations, equity, social justice and etc.

They can’t eat, sleep. Can’t cope? Not to worry, there is a syndrome, psychiatrist, and drug for that. Must be something wrong with you⏤need a sex change?

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is the vehicle used to guide CRT into the conversation. By claiming everything in life is dictated by racism CRT, students are inhibited from speaking, expressing their true feelings. Maybe Suzie Black gets the answer wrong because she didn’t do her homework, which is nothing to do with race. Johnny White is stuck because he will be called a racist exercising his white privilege if he gives the right answer. Everyone will think I am a racist. So rather than giving the right answer, the student is prompted to think⏤is this answer going to offend someone else?

(OR) The teacher asks the question, who knows what two and two are? Johnny thinks, why bother answering⏤they will just call me a racist. I’ll just play with my blocks; besides, if I don’t answer anything, I’ll pass anyway, and that is safer.

Rather than answer #4, learning the fact and moving to the next fact, children are now fearful of giving the wrong socially acceptable emotional response that someone they don’t know decided they should have. They are inhibited and are learning to keep quiet even when they are right. So if they can’t be right when they know they are, they will do something else to get attention – drugs, sex, pink hair, body piercing, drinking, etc. Children will do anything to get the attention they lack from being right in school in front of their peers.

SEL and CRT are just fancy names for behavior modification. A psychological trick used to elicit the appropriate required response for an action. All the child does is learn the responses approved by the textbook company. If you follow procedure, you will get the correct OUTCOME.    No innovation, no creation, no competition, no thinking outside the box. Now every child must think inside the box. There is no room for individuality which is its purpose. No wonder why the STEM attendance is so poor. No thought, just stimulus, response, stimulus, response, training for Pavlov’s dogs, not people.

We are not graduating individuals. We are graduating clones who, given the right stimulus, will give the right response. No reading, writing, or math is needed. Just respond the way you were taught. White people are bad and the cause of your problems. If you are a minority, you are the victim and can blame someone else for your problems. You can riot without consequences.

There is a reason why Collier Co Schools are failing and graduating students who are only 34% college-ready. Focusing on emotion, not facts, does not prepare an individual for worldwide competition. Focusing on emotion does not enable a child to learn to read, write and do math which is the purpose of education. Every text regardless of subject contains CRT. Please do not adopt these texts.  We need a real pause to find great texts and curricula for Florida’s students.

Hatem Bazian: Professor of Hate

Rashida Tlaib’s friend and associate is a quintessential example of how the Left has corrupted academia. My latest in FrontPage:

Fox News reported Thursday that “an ally to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., runs an organization that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) says has ‘provided a platform for anti-Semitism.’ University of California at Berkeley instructor Hatem Bazian is a Tlaib ally and donor who is also a co-founder and professor at Muslim liberal arts school Zaytuna College. In 2006, Bazian founded a controversial, advocacy organization named American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), which has featured Tlaib at events.”

Hatem “Hate ‘em” Bazian is, essentially, a Professor of Jihad, not in the sense that he teaches about the concept, but that his entire academic career is a jihad, a jihad of the pen, designed to accomplish essentially the same goals that other jihadis are trying to attain by different means: the advancement of Islam and Sharia. Bazian is a Professor of Jihad in other ways as well: he is head of a group with multiple ties to the jihad terror group Hamas,

IPT News reported in May 2017 that AMP was set up as a “ruse” by former officials of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) and the American Muslim Society (AMS) after those two organizations were “found liable for an American teen’s death in a 1996 terrorist attack” and ceased operations, claiming to be unable to pay. IPT adds: “A subsequent criminal prosecution found that other defendants in the original lawsuit, like the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) and the United Association for Studies and Research, were part of a Muslim Brotherhood-created Hamas-support network in the United States called the Palestine Committee.”

Even the ADL, which has largely morphed into a smear group targeting conservatives (including those who are pro-Israel), noted that the AMP “promotes extreme anti-Israel views and has at times provided a platform for anti-Semitism under the guise of educating Americans about ‘the just cause of Palestine and the rights of self-determination.’”

Despite all this, Fox notes that Tlaib was “the ‘guest of honor’ at AMP’s annual convention in December 2019 and months earlier in July delivered a briefing organized by AMP to over 70 people. The Michigan Democrat also addressed AMP’s Palestine Advocacy Day delegates in April of 2019.” Also, “in March of 2013, AMP put up a billboard accusing Israel of engaging in ‘apartheid’ against Palestinians.” Tlaib and her far-Left Muslim colleague in Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Mogadishu) “were featured as speakers for a virtual AMP event in November 2020, and both congresswomen attended the same pro-Palestine conference as Bazian.”

If Rashida Tlaib were a conservative and had an associate so multiply linked to hatred and violence as Hatem Bazian, she would have been hounded out of Congress long ago. But these kinds of associations are just fine with the political and media establishment. And in these days of a thoroughly corrupted and politicized academic environment, Bazian has all the respectable bona fides: he is “a co-founder and Professor of Islamic Law and Theology at Zaytuna College, the 1st Accredited Muslim Liberal Arts College in the United States. In addition, Prof. Bazian is a lecturer in the Departments of Near Eastern and Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.”

Researching and documenting “Islamophobia” doesn’t mean that Bazian keeps track of louts harassing innocent Muslims. No, Bazian is essentially a professor of Sharia Enforcement: he uses the smear propaganda term “Islamophobia” to stigmatize those who dare to note how Islamic jihadis use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and make recruits among peaceful Muslims. Anyone who notices that the jihadis’ motivating ideology is Islamic to the core has already been or soon will be added to Bazian’s list of “Islamophobes”; the objective is to make everyone too frightened of this stigmatization to speak out, so that no will will dare utter a word and the jihad can advance unopposed and unimpeded.

Bazian has engaged in other kinds of thuggery as well. He has openly called for an intifada, a violent uprising, not in Israel only, but in the United States as well. And regarding supporters of Israel, he has declared: “We need to harass them.”

In a sane society, Hatem Bazian would at very least be under investigation for ties to jihad terror activity, and would be a prime candidate for deportation. Instead, he is a respected professor at a prestigious university, and a close associate of an influential member of the House of Representatives. He is thus a prime example of how our academic institutions have lost their way, deserve no public funding, and are in radical need of reform. But as the presence of his friend Tlaib in Congress shows, those who would take needed action against our corrupted universities and colleges are themselves just as compromised.

NYC Psychiatrist tells Yale Audience She Fantasizes About Shooting White People in Head

American universities are abusing our children, turning them into racist zombies. And the American taxpayer is financing their own demise.

‘Make my blood boil’: NYC shrink tells Yale audience she fantasizes about shooting white people in head

A New York City-based psychiatrist told an audience at the Yale School of Medicine in April that she had fantasies of “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way.”

By: NY Post, June 4, 2021:

Dr. Aruna Khilanani spewed the race-hating virtual remarks — in which she also said she’d walk away from the shooting “with a bounce in my step” and that white people “make my blood boil” and “are out of their minds and have been for a long time” — at the Ivy League institution’s Child Study Center on April 6.

Audio of the talk was posted on the substack online platform of former New York Times opinion writer and editor Bari Weiss on Friday, along with an interview of Khilanani conducted by writer and podcaster Katie Herzog.

A flyer promoting the talk and posted online by Weiss titled the lecture, “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind” and included “learning objectives” such as “Set up white people’s absence of empathy towards black rage as a problem” and “Understand how white people are psychologically dependent on black rage.”

Dr. Aruna Khilanani accused white people of being dependent on “black rage” during her talk. Dr. Aruna Khilanani accused white people of being dependent on “black rage” during her talk. Twitter

Khilanani opened her remarks by telling the audience, “I’m gonna say a lot of things, and it will probably provoke a lot of responses, and I want you to just maybe observe them in yourself.”

She then added “prayers up for DMX” before discussing what she described as the “intense rage and futility” people of color purportedly feel when talking to white people about racism.

“We are calm, we are giving, too giving, and then when we get angry, they use our responses as confirmation that we’re crazy or have emotional problems,” Khilanani said. “It always ends that way, happens every time. Like a goddamn timer, you can count it down.“ Nothing makes me angrier than a white person who tells me not to be angry, because they have not seen real anger yet,” she said — before talking about how she “systematically” cut off most of her former white friends “around five years ago.

“I stopped watching the news,” Khilanani continued. “Once I started, I couldn’t stop.

“It was also a public service,” she said. “I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f–king favor.”

Later in the talk, Khilanani claimed that conversing with white people about racial issues was “useless because they are at the wrong level of conversation.

“White people are out of their minds, and they have been for a long time … White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race,” she said.

“They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we.

“We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath,” Khilanani continued. “We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero to accept responsibility. It ain’t gonna happen.

“They have five holes in their brain. It’s like banging your head against a brick wall.”

Khilanani said that “addressing racism assumes that white people can see and process what we are talking about.

“They can’t,” she said. “That’s why they sound demented. They don’t even know they have a mask on. White people think it’s their actual face. We need to get to know the mask.”

The psychiatrist — who says in her profile on the Independent Doctors of New York Web site that she has “expertise in treating patients who may be curious about questions around their identity” — claimed that Yale promised her footage of the talk would be released to the public the next Monday.

Instead, after a series of delays, it was released internally, only available to anyone with a school ID.

In recent weeks, Khilanani took to TikTok to push for video of her talk to be made public.

“Yo, white amnesia is an amazing thing,” she said in her most recent posting earlier this week.

In her interview with Herzog, Khilanani also shared an e-mail she said was forwarded to her from the dean that read: “Good morning, I was surprised to see the announcement for tomorrow’s [talk].

“I imagine replacing the words ‘white mind’ with ‘Asian mind’ or ‘gay mind’ as we work towards equity and inclusion and unity. I wonder what impact this presentation will have,” the dean wrote.

Khilanani responded, “When I’m breaking this down psychologically, what they’re saying on some level is like, ‘We need things to be the same. If you can say “white,” we can say “Asian.” ‘

“Psychologically, they’re actually making a false equivalence,” she said. “What they’re doing psychologically is obliterating the difference between white and Asian, and if you obliterate the difference there’s no f–king problem here, so shut up, you’re the real racist. That’s how it functions psychologically.”

Khilanani did not respond to requests for comment from The Post, nor did Yale Child Study Center Director of Medical Studies Dr. Andres Martin, who was listed as “course director” for the talk.

OHIO: Nazi Football Coach Forces Kosher Observant Teen to Eat Pork as Punishment

Head coach Marcus Wattley made the teen sit in the middle of the gym and eat the whole pizza. If he didn’t, his surrounding teammates would have to run extra drills. Wattley also threatened to kick the teen off the team.

Ohio Football Coach Forces Kosher Observant Teen to Eat Pork as Punishment

The family of a McKinley High School football player is calling for more action after it says the head coach Marcus Wattley forced the teen to eat a pizza containing pork.

The incident happened on May 24th after the junior missed practice with an injury. According to the family’s attorney, head coach Marcus Wattley made the teen sit in the middle of the gym and eat the whole pizza. If he didn’t, his surrounding teammates would have to run extra drills. The attorney said Wattley also threatened to kick the teen off the team. The 17-year-old’s faith strictly forbids eating pork or pork residue.

The boy repeatedly told the coach he did not eat pork and eventually he was allowed to pick off the pepperoni. However, grease still remained on the pizza,.

After finishing, the teen was ordered to do extra drills outside, according to the attorney.

Canton City Schools said it suspended eight members of the high school football coaching staff, including the head coach. It is conducting an investigation into the incident.

“The incident calls into question whether appropriate team management, discipline, and player accountability infrastructures are in place,” the district said in a statement on Friday.

The boy’s family said Wattley’s actions were a, “violation of the constitutional rights of this child,” and are threatening legal action.

“The family does not feel that this suspension is adequate. The school has not offered any counseling for the child. The child is devastated due to consuming the pork grease pizza and being degraded in front of the entire team,” the attorney said in a news release on Tuesday.

The student, who is not named in the news release, is a tackle on the football team and has a 4.0 GPA

PROTECTING GIRLS: Florida Governor Signs Bill Banning Boys from Competing Against Girls

Once again, Governor Ron DeSantis is without question the best governor in the nation. DeSantis has made Florida into the envy of the nation. If President Trump does not run for POTUS in 2024, then Governor DeSantis is our candidate. The Left wants biological males to compete against women and girls in sports. Well, that’s not going to happen in Florida #DeSantis2024.

From Governor Ron DeSantis on the pressure to be woke:

You can’t be cowed by these organizations, or particularly by woke corporations from doing the right thing. And so my view was throughout this whole time, we have to protect our girls, it is discriminatory to force them to compete against biological males. And so if the price of having a tournament is that I have to deny equal opportunity to hundreds of thousands of young girl and women athletes throughout Florida, I am much more willing to stand with the girls. And to hell with these events” (Daily Wire).

From another story:

DeSantis continues to make all the right moves and that’s why Democrats, and by extension the media, hate him. Florida has become a haven for freedom lovers across the country. We can only hope those migrating there don’t turn it into what they left (RedState).

DeSantis Signs Bill Protecting Girls From Competing Against Biological Males On First Day Of Pride Month

By Daily Wire, June 6, 2021

Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis kicked off the start of pride month by signing a bill into law that protects female athletes from having to compete against biological males.

“We believe in the state of Florida, of protecting the fairness and the integrity of women’s athletics,” DeSantis said. “And I can tell you this in Florida, you know, girls are going to play girl’s sports and boys are going play boy’s sports, that’s what we’re doing. We’re going to make sure that that’s the reality. So the bill that we’re doing today will ensure fairness for women athletes for years to come in the state of Florida. It says that athletic teams or sports that are designated for females are open to females. And we’re going to go based off biology.”

“The bill defines a student’s biological sex based on the student’s official birth certificate at the time of birth,” DeSantis continued. “And as part of the bill we’re signing today, we’re not only making sure women have opportunities for scholarships and competition at the highest level, we’re also putting in statute ways to actually vindicate the rights of any women athletes who may be discriminated against. So moving forward, any student who’s deprived of an athletic opportunity, as a result of a violation of this law will have the right to civil remedies. Any school or public post secondary institution that suffers direct or indirect harm as a result of a violation of this bill, including by a governmental entity, accrediting organization or athletic association, can also pursue civil remedies. Any student who is subject to retaliation as a result of reporting a violation of this bill can also pursue civil remedies.”

DeSantis played a video at the press conference showing biological males competing against girls in track races at the high school level and winning, which DeSantis said was “blatantly unfair.” Attending the event was Selina Soule, a track athlete from Connecticut who fell one place short of being able to qualify for finals after losing to two biological males.

DeSantis dismissed threats from the NCAA warning against laws that protect girls from having to compete against biological males in sports.

“Some of these organizations say they’re not going to hold events if you do this, just let me say very clearly, in Florida, we’re going to do what’s right, we’ll stand up to corporations, they are not going to dictate the policies in this state,” DeSantis said. “We will stand up to groups like the NCAA, who think that they should be able to dictate the policies in different states.”

TAKE ACTION: University Professor Jacqueline Battalora tells white students that they and all white Americans are racist

Fox News reports:  Kendall Qualls calls out Illinois professor lecturing children on their Whiteness.  May. 25, 2021 – 5:41 – St. Xavier Professor Jacqueline Battalora said she and other White people are inherently racist even if they ‘don’t want to be’; Qualls reacts on ‘America’s Newsroom.’

Jacqueline Battalora told students:

“I know I am racist.  I don’t want to be.  I don’t like it.  But I’m … you cannot be a product of US culture and society and not be especially as a white person.   It’ not possible so let’s get over it…”

Click here to see full Fox News video.

Jacqueline Battalora’s declaration and belief that all white Americans are racist is not based on scientific modeling facts.  They are hard left, unempirical lies.

Battalora’s assertions appear to be based upon leftist politics like those of Black Lives Matter’s Marxist doctrine that is focused on destroying the nuclear family which is the bedrock of American society.

Her admission alone, taken at face value without knowing her motivation, that she holds such severe racist feelings makes her unfit to teach.

Battalora’s contention that all white Americans are racist is blatantly bigoted, repugnant to humanity and a disgrace to the Christian faith.

Jacqueline Battalora teaching her false racist beliefs to students furthers racism, delays real healing and wrongfully damages the self esteem of white students.

New National ‘Report Card’ Shows Public Schools Are Failing in One Huge Way

Students often face punishment from parents when they get a bad report card. But what happens when our school system gets one?

The latest national “report card” is out, and it shows that our schools are failing Americans when it comes to science education. These most recent data come from the 2019 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) science assessment.

Just 36 percent of 4th graders were at least “proficient” in science in 2019. Meanwhile, only 35 percent of 8th graders were proficient, and, most worryingly, just 22 percent of 12th graders tested at or above a proficient level in science. These numbers are all essentially unchanged or marginally worse than the same figures in 2015, suggesting no improvement or progress has been made on this front. [RELATED IMAGE]

These findings are more than just an embarrassment for those who run our nation’s educational systems. They serve as yet another reminder that the public education system, where roughly 90 percent of students are enrolled, isn’t working. Indeed, a perusal of the report card’s sub-data shows that while results across the board aren’t great, public school students’ test scores are significantly lower than students enrolled in Catholic private schools, for one example.

It also proves that simply pouring more taxpayer money into the public education system does not advance results.

Despite conventional wisdom, we have not actually “defunded education.” As the Reason Foundation’s Corey DeAngelis notes, “The United States currently spends over $15,000 per student each year, and inflation-adjusted K-12 education spending per student has increased by 280 percent since 1960.”

But it’s all for naught.

Economic research shows no clear correlation between public education spending and outcomes. If throwing more taxpayer money at the problem could accomplish anything, we wouldn’t have such abysmal results.

The truth is that no amount of resources can change the structural problems facing the public school system. “Pouring more money into the same broken system won’t fix the deeper problem — government monopolies have weak incentives to cater to the needs of their customers by spending money wisely,” DeAngelis explains.

When government-run schools are the only option, those schools have little incentive to improve. In contrast, school choice policies that give American families more options empower them to choose the public school, charter school, private school, or homeschooling option that best suits their needs.

And families having options fosters a competitive system that can actually deliver results. Schools that perform well will attract more students (and thus more money), while those that underdeliver will bleed students and money. Over time, this will lead to the rise and expansion of effective schools and educational options and the demise of inefficient, broken ones.

It’s no coincidence that research has consistently shown that school choice initiatives can raise test scoresincrease parent and student satisfaction, and improve graduation rates. Unless we want our nation’s school system to keep getting bad report cards, something has to change.

The Federal Government Violates Education Code.

The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.  – Patrick Henry

So many bills are written and then are ignored. Did you know that every day everyone violates some law or regulation?   Even the President and legislators/representatives violate the law.  The problem is most Americans hardly know because they are busy with life. Most Representatives don’t know the law either because too often older laws are not removed and replaced by the new laws. creating an impossible to track situation. That is the problem.  If our representatives knew the law, they would tell Biden that the Federal Government has no right to meddle in education. Grants that demand schools teach curricula like Critical Race Theory (CRT), or common core are a violation of the law.  U.S. Code – Unannotated Title 20 Education § 1232a. Prohibition against Federal control of education.

Now the states are busy writing laws to eliminate this America hating, family hating, G-d hating Critical Race Theory (CRT). But are they prepared to oversee if the laws are being followed? Are they demanding oversight from their Department of Education?  Are School Boards (SB) engaged? Or are parents being placated when they go to SB meetings and ask, “Are you teaching CRT?” and get, “NO”, for an answer. By eliminating the words Critical Race Theory and using other warm fuzzy words to describe the same thing you will find CRT is there.  The method they use is called subliminal messaging.  This is a message that may be remembered even if the person was not consciously aware of the message. This along with repetition is a tool used by advertisers, you know the psychological manipulators.

Since we started textbook analysis, I have been looking for examples of subliminal messaging which guides, nudges the student into coming up with the desired conclusion (aka Outcome Based Education):  America is systemically racist.

I found a perfect example of this method used in the image which is page 23 of the Savvas (formerly Pearson) teacher’s manual.  This method is duplicated in most lessons regardless of the publisher used.  Basically it is how to use propaganda to turn students into America hating, Family hating and G-d hating activists.  This page tells you how.  You must use: Charged Language, Parallelism, Repetition and Analogy. If we followed this method and changed the outcome, we win.

How does subliminal messaging work?  Here is an example:

The Florida BEST Standards calls for the use of original source documents. Dr. King’s, “I Have a Dream Speech” is the document they choose.  This is a highly persuasive speech focused on HOPE but with the use of subliminal messaging the reader is guided and nudged to feel the emotion of segregation and  HATE.

Look at the Argument and Rhetoric on the right. The teacher is supposed to elicit this response.  Practice responses:

Students should restate King’s claim in paragraph 3, “The Negro is still not free.”  This wipes out 60 years of history and the student is guided to believe, The Negro is still not free.   America still has segregated buses, water fountains and we are still living in the 50’s. Ask the students, you will be shocked.

Charged Language: They want the student to focus on poverty and hate, not the good that came out of the civil rights movement.  So the Black families in affluent Naples, FL don’t exist and the White families should feel guilty they live there.  While the Whites living in poverty don’t count either because they are not part of the minority and besides they are white and privilege. When we bring this way of thinking into society and culture we have Americans thinking that the everything in life must be fair, for the common good, diversified, inclusive, etc.  You know, Social Justice. It doesn’t matter how hard you work, We will all get the same results.

Parallelism:  They stir emotion, to bring people together but notice only among civil rights activists and people of color. To show HOPE they would have used “stirs emotion of all Americans”.  They must keep the divide going.

Repetition:  Stirring emotion not logic works like this:  The communist environmentalists have convinced the people that fossil fuels are destroying the planet . (LIE) But they never say fossil fuels are needed to produce electricity.

Analogy:  A comparison between 2 unlikely things to create clarity.  “America has given the Negro a bad check.” they compare to: “African Americans have been cheated out of their freedom.”  This guilt trip opens the door to reparations instead of using facts of what Americans have done since the speech to rectify the bad check.  Biden just granted reparations (Covid aid) to minority farmers while excluding the white farmers. We are going backwards.

By not mentioning the vast accomplishments of Civil Rights movement realizing most of the Dreams, students are guided into feeling guilty, full of despair and America is racist.

The lessons, books, poems photos and articles in these texts use this method of subliminal messaging to reinforce racism and hate while they have accomplished meeting the Florida BEST standards of reading source documents.

This is a lesson from the Palm Springs Elementary School, Palm Beach County (PBC) BLM movie script.  This is on PBC school page…..many parents do not know about it because it is hidden on their page.  You have to dig to find it, according to my teacher friend. This includes the BLM movie script in addition to other items.

PBC uses BrainPOP – Animated Educational Site for Kids – Science, Social Studies, English, Math, Arts & Music, Health, and Technology.  BrainPop is filled with distortions and out right lies. Our kids today have no real heroes only animated figures.

No wonder why our kids hate America.  These texts/lessons should never be used in Florida as they are contrary to everything Gov DeSantis stated.   They should never be used anywhere because they are contrary to America, G-d and family and filled with erroneous information.

Instead of using the scientific method (SM) as the method to solve problems, the communist results are outcome based.  Everything outcome is known in advance and must always be the same. The Government has the answer, trust the government.  Remember, this is the same government who now chooses its experts whether public or private by diversity not excellence.

This is the method used for students to become activists, community organizers, and HR trainers not brilliant engineers, pilots, MD’s, researchers, mechanics etc. How does this work when they grow up?

I took this from The American Medical Association (AMA), the largest national organization representing physicians and medical students in the United States, says it will set aside its long-held concept of meritocracy in favor of “racial justice” and “health equity.”

In an 86-page strategic plan released May 11, the AMA set out a three-year road map detailing how the advocacy group will use its influence to dismantle “structural and institutional racism” and advance “social and racial justice” in America’s health care system.

What are they really saying?  We don’t need doctors any more. We will just hook the patient to some device and monitor everything. The Dr. will just get in the way. Yeah, government controlled medicine.

How about HUD the Department of Housing and Urban Development:  Biden reinstituted Obama’s (AFFH) which rezones areas eliminating single family housing.  Everyone must have the same size flat (apartment). Agenda 21 calls for 350 sq ft for a single person and 700 ft for a family of 4.   If you want the government grant, your municipality must rezone and build packem stackem apartments or tiny houses.  What will that do to the value of your home?  What happens when the government decides your home is too large and you have room for more families? What happens when the government demands you house illegals in your 1800 sq ft house? After all they are the victim, you are the oppressor. Your children are being taught in the name of fairness, they must do more for less otherwise they are racist.  Will your children rat on you?

How about the National Park Service web site

The National Park Service is now training their employees to :                                                                         

Focus – The focus of this discussion will be on issues of equity and inclusion related to race, culture, ethnicity, sex, gender, and/or disability status in our organization. We the taxpayers are paying for this. What does that have to do with taking care of the Park?
Purpose – Provide everyone an opportunity to share experiences, questions, and concerns about how bias and discrimination manifest in our organization and to ask for support.  The ultimate guilt trip. We are from the gov’t, we are here to help.
Goals – To deepen the group’s collective understanding while broadening each individual’s perspective regarding equity and inclusion within our [park/program/team/organization]. With ongoing dialogue over time, our goal is to create an environment conducive to engaging in honest and candid conversations and to work together to create actionable solutions to equity and inclusion issues in our [park/program/team/organization].  I bet you thought that the job of the Park Service was to take care of the parks and forests?

When feeling trumps facts and skills, mediocrity reigns. Where do America’s leaders come from if they are guided by feeling and emotions focused on hating America?  What happens in the military? Do we now leave the white injured soldier on the field to be captured? Does a Muslim doctor now say I won’t treat you because you are a Jew?

Is America Worth Saving?

It is not enough to pass a BILL without oversight from the people.  Freedom requires work.

Will you be a watchdog and look for the subliminal messaging your school?

VIDEO: Get Your Critical Race Claws Off My Kid!

“In many of our schools, young, impressionable children are no longer being taught to feel good about being Americans. Their schools’ teachers, who traditionally embody socially approved values, are teaching them to be ashamed of being Americans. Spreading out from the schools that teach our teachers, this ideology is being inculcated into our nation’s K-12 schools and is anti-American in the most profound meaning of the term. It is a movement that is teaching future generations that capitalism and traditional American values are intrinsically evil. Critical pedagogy and its advocates, in their vehement antipathy toward capitalism, private property and traditional American values amount to a classic fifth subversive column, no less dangerous to freedom than Communism.” Bill Ayers, the Critical Pedagogy movement, and Cultural Marxism

Make no mistake. Our Republic is being systematically dismantled at a breakneck pace. Nowhere is that process proceeding faster than in our schools and colleges, where students at all levels are being brainwashed with a failed ideology—Marxism—that has an unbroken trail of ushering in widespread poverty and oppression wherever it has been tried. Many of America’s K-12 schools have become little more than socialist lecture halls which have turned millions of impressionable young children against their country. The anti-capitalist radicals who have infiltrated—and now dominate—virtually the entire U.S. education system are on a hell-bent mission to surreptitiously turn America communist one little Marxist at a time.

The primary means of pursuing that treasonous goal is by indoctrinating students with  Critical Race Theory (CRT)a wolf in sheep’s clothing political construct that teaches American children of all races to hate their country, and white children to feel ashamed of something over which they have no control—the color of their skin. If this cancer is not aggressively rolled back, and soon, the greatest nation the world has ever known is doomed.

Fortunately, parents are awakening. The counterattack against CRT has been joined by Fight For Schools, a group formed by parents in Virginia whose children attend Loudoun Country Public Schools (LCPS). For daring to oppose CRT, Fight For Schools parents are being subjected to a vicious smear campaign:

Despite the intimidation, Fight For Schools parents are not backing down. Elsewhere, a Southlake, Texas parents group overwhelmingly defeated a proposal by progressive indoctrinators to inject CRT into classroom curriculum. And in Springfield, Virginia, the pastor of a Catholic church devoted the second page of the May 9 parish bulletin to the mortal threat CRT indoctrination poses to the American way of life.

An organization that deserves your support

Parents Defending Education (PDE) is a national grassroots organization working to reclaim our schools from progressive activists promoting harmful agendas. Through network and coalition building, investigative reporting, litigation, and engagement on local, state, and national policies, the organization is aggressively fighting classroom indoctrination—see video below. The mothers who run PDE are fully committed to driving a stake in the heart of critical race brainwashing, so please consider donating to help their non-partisan, pro-child organization purge the poison of CRT from America’s classrooms.

Critical race theory is deeply entrenched in public school districts across America, so much so that dislodging it will take a Herculean effort. Those of us who understand the enormity of what’s at stake have a duty to do everything in our power to eradicate CRT. Not for our sake, but for our children and grandchildren and generations yet to come, all of whom will live out the rest of their years under the boot of communist tyranny if we choose to sit on our hands.

The time to act is short

If our schools—and our country—are to be saved, parents and other concerned citizens must come out of the woodwork and push back hard against the unvarnished anti-Americanism that permeates tens of thousands of K-12 classrooms. If freedom is to be preserved for their children, parents must convey an unambiguous message to school officials:

  • We do not send our child to school to have values taught at home supplanted by those of activist teachers and administrators who have contempt for this great country.
  • We object in the strongest terms to our child being brainwashed with CRT, white privilege, Project 1619, Black Lives Matter, transgenderism, wokeness and other victim vs. oppressor political propaganda.
  • We are concerned that indoctrination in such topics may cause lasting psychological damage to our child, and to the extent these themes are being pushed in our child’s classroom, we demand that such brainwashing be ended.
  • We will not tolerate our child being made to feel ostracized or unworthy due to an inherent trait—skin color—over which no person has control.
  • Our child will report to us what goes on in the classroom, and if retaliation is ever taken against our child, we will pursue damages to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Demands to school officials must be forcefully presented. Democrat-controlled school boards will not be influenced in the least by a beat-around-the-bush approach. To see the kind of passion that must be brought to bear, watch this video of a courageous black mother delivering a blistering critique of CRT before the May 12 school board meeting in Loudoun County, Virginia.

Parents must become grassroots education activists by banding together with other like-minded parents to (1) recruit new members, (2) show up en masse at school board meetings and PTA functions, (3) conduct petition signing drives, (4) register new voters, and (5) hold protests on school property when students are arriving or departing.

To project an eye-catching identity, local parent groups can use signage, bumper stickers, ball caps and t-shirts with slogans similar to the ones shown below.

Parents must be willing to FIGHT

Many parents are reluctant to complain about classroom indoctrination out of fear that doing so may adversely affect their child’s grades. CRT brainwashing occurs in schools because it is tolerated by parents who are afraid to speak out. If school boards are to be swayed, concerned parents cannot come across like trembling Chihuahuas. They must draw a line in the sand by deciding which is more important to their child’s future: a possible lower grade, or their child living the rest of his or her life under the harsh dictates of socialist-cum-communist rule. Progressive “educators” must be put on notice that retaliation against children will not go unanswered.

Time is running out to save our Republic

It may be too late to reverse the grievous harm critical race teachings have done to our society. But a grassroots movement for the ages targeting this insidious ideology could ignite a national uprising in the nick of time. For such an uprising to succeed, it must be immediate and massive. All hands on deck.

Biden Withdraws After THOUSANDS of Notre Dame Students Sign Petition UNINVITING BIDEN

There is reality, and then there is the communist propaganda that the Democrat media complex shovels as news. Believe none of it. We are closer to civil war than people know.

Biden Absent From Notre Dame’s 2021 Commencement After 4,300 People Sign Petition Uninviting Him

President Joe Biden did not speak at the University of Notre Dame’s 2021 commencement Sunday, although he was originally invited to the event.

BY: CBN, MAY 24, 2021:

A White House spokesperson told the Catholic News Agency that the president could not attend due to a scheduling conflict, after 4,300 members of the college community signing a petition asking the university president not to invite him.

The letter addressed to the Rev. John I. Jenkins, the university president, draws attention to Biden’s “pro-abortion and anti-religious liberty agenda.”

“He rejects Church teachings on abortion, marriage, sex and gender and is hostile to religious liberty,” the letter reads. “He embraces the most pro-abortion and anti-religious liberty public policy program in history. The case against honoring him is immeasurably stronger than it was against honoring President Obama, an action that alienated countless Catholics and brought upon Notre Dame the harsh

Evangelist Franklin Graham, the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and Samaritan’s Purse tweeted he was grateful that so many would “stand up for truth and life.”

Shortly after taking office, the Biden administration began to undo a Trump-era ban on clinics referring women for abortions, a policy directive that prevented Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider, from receiving one type of federal funding.

Biden also allowed university researchers and government scientists to use human fetal tissue for medical research – another Trump-era policy that had banned the use of tissue from elective abortions.

And the Biden administration recently filed an appeal in an effort to force physicians and hospitals to perform potentially harmful gender transition surgeries on patients – including children – even if they have religious objections.

As CBN News previously reported, some of Biden’s decisions on abortion, sex, gender, and marriage are creating quite the divide among his fellow Catholic faithful.

His critics say the President is “cloaking himself in Catholicism” by talking about his faith, while not following Church teachings. Many question whether he’s going against long-held tenets of the faith in favor of a more progressive approach.

Jimmy Dunne, a finance executive and trustee of the university, was named the commencement speaker for Notre Dame’s class of 2021

VIDEO: Students Taught that ‘Make America Great Again’ Is ‘Covert White Supremacy’

You need to be concerned about our public schools. Maryland shows us why. We received 685 pages of heavily redacted records from Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), including documents related to their “Anti-racist system audit” and critical race theory classes.

The documents, obtained under the Maryland Public Information Act, reveal that students of “Maryland’s Largest School District” who attended Thomas Pyle Middle School’s social justice class were taught that the phrase “Make America Great Again” was an example of “covert white supremacy.” The phrase is ranked on a pyramid just below, “lynching,” “hate crimes,” “the N-word” and “racial slurs.” They were also taught that “white privilege” means being favored by school authorities and having a positive relationship with the police.

Additionally, the documents show that Montgomery County Public Schools allocated over $454,000 for an “Anti-racist system audit” by The Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium, a company that claims that their “expertise in using intersectionality as part of its theory of change makes us uniquely positioned to conduct the Anti-Racist Audit and mitigate the root causes of systemic barriers.”

In Thomas Pyle Middle School’s “social justice” class course curriculum, there is a slide titled “What is systemic racism?” in which students are shown a pyramid slide depicting “Differences between overt and covert hateful white supremacy.” According to the pyramid, “Make America Great Again” is an example of “covert white supremacy.” The phrase is ranked on a pyramid just below “racial slurs.”

Examples of other “white supremacy” include thinking “but we’re just one human family,” “colorblindness,” “cultural appropriation,” “celebration of Columbus Day,” “police murdering POC [people of color],” and “bootstrap theory.”

A separate pyramid begins with the term “genocide.”

The documents include Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium’s “anti-racist system audit” proposal, which describes intersectional theory as “people are often disadvantaged by multiple sources of oppression: their race, class, gender identity, native language, sexual orientation, religion, and other identity markers. Intersectionality recognizes that identity markers (e.g. “female” and “Black”) do not exist independently of each other, and that each informs the others, often creating a complex merging of oppression.”

Records regarding Montgomery County Public School’s Thomas Pyle Middle School’s social justice class include a cover letter, noting that the class in question was a one-week “Summer Boost” class called “Reading and Taking Action for Social Justice” offered from July 13-17, 2020, and that “no grades were given and no actual work due.” The class material includes a push for students to fill out a form letter with contact information addressed to federal, state and county education officials asking for more critical race theory classes in schools.

In a slide titled “What is Intersectionality?” the students are told it is defined as:

Exposing [one’s] multiple identities can help clarify the ways in which a person can simultaneously experience privilege and oppression….

Per [critical race theory scholar] Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, ‘Intersectionality is simply a prism to see the Interactive effects of various forms of discrimination and disempowerment. It looks at the way that racism, many times, interacts with patriarchy, heterosexism, classism, xenophobia – seeing that the overlapping vulnerabilities created by these systems actually create specific kinds of challenges.’

A class slide titled “Implicit Bias, Structural Racism” states:

Race is created to justify enslaving people from Africa (the economic engine of the country).

National narrative (ideology, belief system) about people of color being ‘less than’ human (and less than white) justifies mistreatment and inequality (white supremacy).

Dominant narratives about race (family, media, society) coupled with racialized structural arrangements and differential outcomes by race all prime us to believe that people of color are inferior to white people …

The students are asked: “What is White Privilege?” and are instructed that white privilege includes, among other things: having “a positive relationship with the police, generally;” “soaking in media blatantly biased toward my race;” and “living ignorant of the dire state of racism today.”

The students are suggested to view a Ted Talk interview with Patrisse Cullors, a founder of Black Lives Matter. The class is provided “definitions” created by The terms that are defined include:

  • “Black Lives Matter,” which is defined as “A political movement to address systemic and state violence against African Americans.” It claims that “Black Lives Matter is an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise.”
  • “Power,” defined among other things as: “Wealth, whiteness, citizenship, patriarchy, heterosexism, and education are a few key social mechanisms through which power operates.”
  • “Racist policies,” is defined with the statement, “There is no such thing as a nonracist or race-neutral policy.”
  • “White Privilege,” which is defined as “to the unquestioned and unearned set of advantages, entitlements, benefits and choices bestowed on people solely because they are white.” And “Structure white privilege” is described as “A system of white domination that creates and maintains belief systems that make current racial advantages and disadvantages seem normal.”
  • Under the heading “White Supremacy,” “White supremacy culture,” is defined as referring, “to the dominant, unquestioned standards of behavior and ways of functioning embodied by the vast majority of institutions in the United States.” White supremacy culture is further defined as “the glue that binds together white-controlled institutions into systems and white-controlled systems into the global white supremacy system.”
  • Other defined terms include: “Anti-black” “colonization” “racial recognition” “racialization” “structural racism” and “whiteness”

We also received records relating to Montgomery County Public School’s Greenwood Elementary School’s “Dual Pandemic” of “Covid-19/systemic racism” class presentation.

The racist, revolutionary claptrap in these documents should be nowhere near a school classroom. These documents show that extremists have access to our schools and are willing to abuse this access to children in order to advance a dangerous, divisive, and likely illegal agenda.
would signal that the public pushback against rising crime is gaining traction. Victory for any of the other candidates would signal something entirely different—that the leftward march in American cities continues.

Catholic League: Critical Race Theory Is ‘Inherently Racist’

In a statement on the Catholic League website Thursday, the organization’s President Bill Donohue warned that Critical Race Theory (CRT), which smears the United States as a deeply racist nation, is itself “an inherently racist prescription” because “it judges people on the basis of their skin color, not their individual traits.”

CRT “is a textbook example of promoting racism in the name of fighting it.” Today, “there is no shortage of educators, reporters, activists, and lawmakers who claim to oppose racism while harboring an agenda that sometimes promotes it,” Donohue states. He pointed out that there are those who have a vested interest in stoking “the perception that we are a racist nation,” a notion that is now “widespread.”

Lies about systemic racism are purveyed by dishonest groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Donohue asserts, “a left-wing activist organization that claims to monitor such offenses.”

“SPLC has racism on the brain,” he adds, noting the group’s 2020 report that laments the fact “the majority of Americans thought that Black Lives Matter (BLM) violence in 2020 was a bigger problem than police violence against blacks.”

“Real racism and extremism, as the Catholic Church understands it, must be opposed and defeated,” Donohue concludes. “It does not help this noble cause when prominent Americans and non-profit organizations are bent on finding racism under every rock.”

Critical Race Theory

3 Known Connections

Founded by the late Derrick Bell, critical race theory is an academic discipline which maintains that society is divided along racial lines into (white) oppressors and (black) victims, similar to the way Marxism frames the oppressor/victim dichotomy along class lines. Critical race theory contends that America is permanently racist to its core, and that consequently the nation’s legal structures are, by definition, racist and invalid. As Emory University professor Dorothy Brown puts it, critical race theory “seeks to highlight the ways in which the law is not neutral and objective but designed to support white supremacy and the subordination of people of color.” A logical derivative of this premise, according to critical race theory, is that the members of “oppressed” racial groups are entitled—in fact obligated—to determine for themselves which laws and traditions have merit and are worth observing. Further, critical race theory holds that because racism is so deeply ingrained in the American character, classical liberal ideals such as meritocracy, equal opportunity, and colorblind justice are essentially nothing more than empty slogans that fail to properly combat—or to even acknowledge the existence of—the immense structural inequities that pervade American society and work against black people. Thus, according to critical race theorists, racial preferences (favoring blacks) in employment and higher education are not only permissible but necessary as a means of countering the permanent bigotry of white people who, as Bell put it, seek to “achieve a measure of social stability through their unspoken pact to keep blacks on the bottom.”

An Open Letter on Critical Race Theory to Florida Gov. DeSantis and Comm’r of Education Corcoran

by Keith Flaugh and Pastor Rick Stevens

Thank you, Governor DeSantis and Commissioner Corcoran, for your bold and courageous leadership. Your determination to protect Florida’s children from harmful ideologies is commendable and inspiring!

Governor, we all breathed a sigh of relief when you announced that the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in Florida and similar theories are “wacko” and unacceptable in Florida. You have been very clear that embracing a traditional American education focused on reading, writing, math, and civics is the only acceptable way forward. What a seemingly wonderful thing that Florida students would once again be getting a great education. However, with FL DOE-approved materials now being adopted and purchased in addition to the US DOE order to provide CRT grants directly to Florida School Districts, how wrong we were! We all must remember that Communists NEVER stop.

Governor DeSantis, on behalf of over 110,000 active Florida Citizens Alliance supporters and many of our over 100 partner groups, we are urging you to issue a joint Executive Order immediately that:

1) Stops the adoption of ELA textbooks until the FL DOE can be 100% confident that all the textbooks and teacher editions are completely free of Critical Race Theory and its many tentacles (The solution is original sourced materials and classical literature already in the B.E.S.T. ELA Standards.)

2) Strictly prohibits any school district in Florida from accepting a direct federal grant related to Critical Race Theory or its many tentacles.

Use your Executive power as Florida’s Governor and the 10th Amendment to just say NO!

If NOT, Critical Race Theory will be a huge embarrassment to you and all of Florida; and it will be infused into our classrooms for the next 4-6 years!

To be clear on what Critical Race theory is, here are recent quotes from Hillsdale’s Imprimis:

“Critical race theory is fast becoming America’s new institutional orthodoxy… built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. There are a series of euphemisms deployed by its supporters to describe critical race theory, including “equity,” “social justice,” “diversity and inclusion,” and “culturally responsive teaching.” Critical race theorists, masters of language construction, realize that “neo-Marxism” would be a hard sell. Equity, on the other hand, sounds non-threatening and is easily confused with the American principle of equality…. It has been injected into government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resources departments in the form of diversity training programs, human resources modules, public policy frameworks, and school curricula.” [link to complete Hillsdale assessment]

As we write this letter, Florida School Districts are adopting ELA Textbooks. Florida Citizens Alliance supporters and our extended team are just beginning to assess ELA adoption processes taking place in all Florida counties. What we are finding is unacceptable. It is another effort by the large publishers to promote their progressive agenda. These ELA materials continue to reflect the principles of Common Core (i.e., Social Emotional Learning, Equity, Social Justice, Diversity, and Inclusion and worse), and these materials will be in our schools for the next 4-6 years! They completely undermine the great work done by the FL DOE to create the B.E.S.T ELA and Math Standards. However, standards without supporting content are worthless.

An honest, academic, traditional American education is the most important gift we can give our children. A moratorium must be immediately declared to stop all 67 counties from purchasing materials that embrace Critical Race Theory, 1619 Project, and BLM Marxist materials. We should be embracing original sources and truly classical content. These are public domain and available at $.10 on the dollar for mere printing. In addition, it must be clear that an activist teacher bringing supplemental materials into the classroom that undermine our principle Judeo-Christian and original Constitutional values will NOT be tolerated.

Under a different name with new adjectives and nouns, CRT is concealed, shrouded, veiled, or disguised in the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) ELA curriculum.  With the use of subtle messages and euphemisms, teachers are guided to teach Social Emotional Learning (SEL), Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, etc. Feelings are more important than facts.

One of the major contributors to the Houghton, Mifflin, Harcourt (HMH) texts is Dr. Tyronne C. Howard. He is an “expert” in CRT from the University of California. Why is Florida approving textbooks from California or these global publishing companies that are still wedded to Common Core?


  • See SRC Attachment 1 taken from the Kindergarten curricula from HMH approved by the FL DOE and found in Santa Rosa County ELA teachers editions of materials being adopted. By the time these children graduate, they will not be able to read, but they will be great activists who hate their families, GOD, and America.  What a horrible thing to do to a child.
  • HMH also uses the theories of their Happiness expert Podcast: The Future of Happiness and Education Feat. Tal Ben-Shahar
  • See IRC Attachment 2 found in Indian River County from materials being adopted. We must never forget the Globalists are communists with a singular objective to control the masses. The less educated, the easier to control.
  • The End of Basic Education: Biden Issues Universal Public School Critical Race Theory Order

FLCA has asked our supporters to check in their district to see if these textbooks and programs are part of their curriculum being adopted. The CRT case is building. Much more to come, but school districts are buying now, and once the $$ are spent, this cannot be undone.

“Leaders of Florida Citizens Alliance just finished a review of the standards to be adopted in Civics, Holocaust, and Character.  As a former teacher and Dean, I can tell you standards are meaningless. The curriculum and text are the only things that matter.  What are the students reading?  What is the teacher saying?  Why are character standards void of mention of family, God, and morality?

I have spoken with Floridians who are reviewing textbooks in their county. In some districts, the School Board is refusing to provide access to student and teacher editions. I was sent the summer curricula and reading list for Palm Beach County from a teacher. This is under a taxpayer grant system given to summer camps.  All is CRT.  See PBC attachment 3

And here are recent specifics in Broward County See BC Attachment 4:

Repeatedly, I have been told from those who have responded so far, all they get from their School Board is, “It’s on the FL DOE approved list.”  Yes, it is on the approved list.  So, I asked, ‘”How is it possible that these publishers continue to be approved in spite of the Governor’s statement condemning CRT?? Who makes these decisions? Since CRT and related theories are a national progressive agenda and national publishers were complicit in Common Core, it is more than certain that the other approved publishers have similar unacceptable content.”   Karen Schoen and fully supported by FLCA.

We will continue to find and expose multiple examples, but the most critical question to ask is, “what can be done NOW to stop this child abuse our education system is forcing on our 2.8 million public school children?”

Governor DeSantis and Commissioner Corcoran, we do not believe that you are aware of the devastating progressive content in these ELA materials that the 67 Counties are adopting.

Governor DeSantis, you are an amazing champion for liberty and an education system based on Judeo- Christian and original Constitutional values. School districts are spending real tax dollars as we speak, and these materials will be in Florida Classrooms for 4-6 years. It is imperative you both stop this immediately! Otherwise, this will be a debacle equal to or greater than the magnitude of the Common Core deception.

Please refer to the embedded links and details we have identified so far. We offer this all in the constructive and best interest of our students and parents.

They Came For Our Kids and We Did Nothing…

Americans must stop drinking the Kool-Aid. Do you think that just because your governor writes an executive order, people will comply? Do you think that just because you believe in America, Family, and God, everyone else does? Do you think that just because President Reagan took down the wall, that communism would just disappear? Think again, because Communists never sleep. Most sit in their drug-filled rooms with well-funded think tanks dreaming up new words to describe the same old torture designed to steal everything from the masses under the names of fairness and utopia.

Most communists are making life-changing decisions because of diversity, not intelligence. Never forget, you know more than they do. They are one-dimensional people incapable of independent thought or action. I know nothing; I am just doing what I am told as friend reports friend and neighbor fights neighbor. In the meantime, the communist leaders sit back and stir the pot as hatred oozes through every walk of life enforced by their new army of useful idiots. Once they get rid of the police, crime will rise. People will scream government, do something, and Obama’s dream of a federal police force will arrive. They are made up of regular untrained, but diversified people told to do the right thing for the “common good” and are more lethal than any police. Why because they were trained to hate. Where were they trained? In the school system!

Florida Citizens Alliance has put together an OPEN LETTER for Governor DeSantis and Commissioner Corcoran on the dangers of Critical Race Theory. Not in Florida? Copy the letter for your state and start a coalition of groups. Here is a PDF or PRINT the letter out.

Applying Knowledge is Power

On April 30, I spoke at the Back to the Future conference. I found it so interesting that no matter who the speaker was, each had the same theme without prior knowledge or discussion. Knowing something and not acting is just as bad as doing nothing. “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to do nothing,” Thomas Jefferson.

Are you part of the do-nothing 80% or the do anything 20%? Going to school board meetings is the easiest place to start. What are they teaching? What methods are they using? If your district is using Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), your students will be learning how to be an activist who hates everyone and everything and can only read and retain sound bites. They will be closer to addiction and suicide as communism teaches victimhood, hate, and how to be an activist. Look for words like diversity, inclusion, equity, service learning, action civics, multiculturalism, social-emotional learning, etc. These are the new words describing Critical Race Theory (CRT) without saying CRT.

If your district is using the Phonological Awareness method for reading, you lose. Phonological awareness is an individual’s awareness of the phonological structure, or sound structure, of words. Why kids can’t read is simple. First, remember communists want the populace dumb. Phonological awareness is not phonics. Phonological awareness is breaking the word down into sounds often without seeing the actual word. Repeating and memorizing words is NOT reading. This is word-specific and forces the child to memorize thousands of words when all they should do is memorize the sounds of 26 letters. If Freedom is not one of the words, when do they learn about freedom?

Phonics teaches the sounds of the letters. Phonics should be taught as the major component of reading, not elimination. Phonics teaches spelling and can be applied to sounding out and reading any word. Phonics makes reading easy and fun. Phonological awareness is a failed program since 1931. Why are we teaching failure to our kids?

As long as Joe Biden is in office, illegal immigration will not stop. But these “new” Americans hate communism. They know its horrors firsthand. If we take back our education system in our states, dump CRT and multiculturalism and give these “new” Americans a good dose of America, they would never vote for a Communist Democrat. We must use their system and change the outcome. Then we win!

States Banning Critical Race Theory must check to see the content of materials used and method of reading.

Texas Senate Bill 2202, currently under review in the House Public Education Committee, seeks to ban the teaching of radical ideology associated with Critical Race Theory in Texas public schools. The bill also mandates a robust academic focus on the founding documents and ideas of America.

Similar legislation passed last week in Idaho, with additional bills under consideration in West Virginia, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Arkansas.

Are you one of the 80% that just complains or one of the 20% that acts?

They came for our kids, and we did nothing. Then we lost our country.

Is America Worth Saving? 

Another email to the Gov…Deception is also in Florida’s new Civics bill which just passed overwhelmingly by well-meaning legislators. We urge Governor DeSantis to VETO SB146.

For all Americans:

The FED DOE wants your comment on the new trash civics and American history education.

Please go. You don’t have to read anything.  It is garbage and will make your head spin.

This is against the law, and that is the only answer.
