Conservative commentator, author, and podcaster Candace Owens noted in a column this week that left-wing public education and teachers unions are full-bore going after the nation’s kids.
She says they don’t give a damn what parents say or think — they’re going to ram through divisive, harmful curriculum like critical race theory and other Marxist claptrap whether parents like it or note.
And in the end, we’ll have a country that is on fire, literally, with hate and division as ethnic groups war amongst themselves.
Did you know that Bill Gates is spending $1.7 Billion to 'fix' the US education system? That's so like him, right? Every time we hear about Bill or Melinda Gates, they seem to be extending their tentacles into every facet of American life, because they're philanthropists, right? They just want to help.
So Bill Gates decided to 'help' with what he views to be problematic: math. Gates says math suffers from — you guessed it — white supremacy, so he's put forth an equitable math curriculum.
His organization, Equitablemath.org, describes the problem with math being the white supremacist notion that in order to be 'right,' students must get the correct answer in class. Now, in order to foster 'equity,' they want to make every answer correct in classrooms across the country.
To put it another way, they're going to make your kids stupid in the name of fighting white supremacy and furthering equity.
This infuriates me because it's just the latest example of perversion inside our children's schools. You might remember a few weeks ago when a woman named Justine Ang Fonte, a health and wellness educator at an elite private school in Manhattan, showed her first grade students a supposed 'sex-ed' cartoon. The video featured conversations on — get this — erections and touching oneself for pleasure. …
travel the country a lot, and it seems the number one question I am now getting from parents is: what can we do? They're realizing that something is wrong. They're teaching critical race theory, which is really just teaching your children how to be racist. They're teaching equitable math, which is teaching your children how to be stupid. And now, of course, is the hyper-sexualization of our children.
I'm always asked, 'What can we do?' I'm going to reverse that question and ask you, what you would do. What would you do if you took your first grader to the playground and they came across another adult who showed them a cartoon about masturbation? Would you call a school administrator? Would you call the people who own the playground and say this is not acceptable? Is that all you would do?
When something of this nature happens within an institution or school, parents don't know what to do. But if it were at the playground, they would know what to do. They would call the cops because that is a sexual offense.
Children are now being sexually offended in the classroom, and parents don't understand that. They can't comprehend that it doesn't change the crime because it's happening from a teacher. In my opinion, teachers who push such content on children should have to register as a sexual offender. If that were my child, I would have have gone to the police station, not to the school administration.
I want you to understand something: at this moment in the country, our children are under attack. They are being preyed upon by the educators. They are being preyed upon by people with nefarious goals.
It's time for parents to remind themselves that they are the parents.
I'm a big supporter now of homeschooling, because I think that schools are a disaster. They cannot be trusted with our children. I hear people say they can't afford homeschooling because they have to work, and I understand the predicament. But if you're sending your children to school because you think it's free, you must understand something: it's not free.
It is costing you your child's mind. It is propaganda. It is lies. It is making them dumber. And it is sexualizing them.
It's a huge trade off. For eight hours a day they have your children and they are turning them into whatever it is they desire to turn them into. This is something everybody should be having a serious discussion about and let me tell you, regarding home school, do you think it's hard? You should know that our country was based upon that model. When the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock, the moms got together and they sorted things out in a community and a local level.
They organized. We still have the power to do that. We still have the power to organize. The government is not the parent. We are.
