Anyone who’s been paying attention in the past few months to what’s been happening in the United States could have seen this one coming from a mile away. Democrats are not only calling for schools to remain closed for the remainder of 2020, but they are also calling for history classes to be cancelled entirely.
Yes, you read that correctly. Democrats did not imply they’d like to cancel history, as they’ve done with the statues; instead, they’ve now explicitly stated their scorn for history.
Democratic State Representative LaShawn K. Ford has called for a cancellation of history classes since they apparently promote “white privilege.”
“I’m calling for the abolishment of history classes in Illinois,” Ford said at an Evanston news conference Sunday with other leaders, the station noted. “We’re concerned that current school history teachings lead to white privilege and a racist society …
When it comes to teaching history in Illinois, we need to end the miseducation of Illinoisans. I’m calling on the Illinois State Board of Education and local school districts to take immediate action by removing current history books and curriculum practices that unfairly communicate our history. Until a suitable alternative is developed, we should instead devote greater attention toward civics and ensuring students understand our democratic processes and how they can be involved.” [Source: The Blaze]
Notice what’s missing? Specific details. Mr. Ford does not identify a single, specific element of this terrible “curriculum” that needs to be changed. He’s not calling for revision of the teaching of a specific decade in United States history, he’s calling for a complete rewriting of history.
In other words, Mr. Ford has openly embraced tactics encouraged by Adolph Hitler and the Nazis, as well as every other sadistic regime that’s been in power and is currently in power.
The only surprising thing is that Democrats are pushing this agenda so soon, and the intensity at which it’s being pushed. Almost like they’re panicking before November and getting desperate. Nevertheless, desperation can lead to some of the most terrifying times for a country, as revealed by countless historical examples.
Might history be the most disturbing due to the fact that it also includes the principles in which the United States was founded upon, above all the principles of liberty?
What is the most disturbing in all of these developments is just how quickly they’ve grown to the extent that they’ve officially entered the public sphere of the debate. As many who have experienced authoritarian takeovers are well away, the smallest changes can suddenly snowball into unreasonable demands. As the snowball gains steam, it winds up with an avalanche designed to crush democracy and promote a one-world government, headed by the globalist elites.
It didn’t take the “protests” long to turn into full-on riots, in which innocent people have been killed and police officers have been paralyzed. These riots happened while Democrats in their Ivory Towers encouraged the “defund police” movement while simultaneously suggesting the “money saved” could be used for reparations.
Of course, the math-repellant Democrats fail to take into account that money isn’t “saved” from defunding police, as they failed to take into account the cost involved in dealing with the absence of police. Most leftists states already run on a massive deficit anyway, particularly California and New York, so the idea of any “money saved” from defunding is simply comical.
However, alongside these verbal demands, a physical assault on the United States was growing. First, it was demands to rename the Confederate bases. Next, it was demands to destroy Confederate soldiers. Shockingly, the demands escalated to include virtually anyone associated with American history, and several criminals simply took matters into their own hands and began attacking the statues.
The most stunning statute desecration of all occurred with Frederick Douglass, a black abolitionist. Doesn’t his life matter? Or is anyone associated with American history simply too controversial to honor going forward?
When looking outside the United States’ borders, the case for the leftists, globalist agenda becomes even clearer. After all, demands to demolish statutes and engage in other extreme left activity have grown exponentially in the United Kingdom, where race riots have been blamed for “inflaming divisions” across Great Britain.
In one op-ed piece, which was ironically published in a left-leaning British publication, even that “journalist” made it clear that she felt a sense of fear of the BLM movement in the UK.
Given the photo below, where the BLM “protestors” appear to be organized in a style more suited for North Korea than a “peaceful protest,” one can quickly see the point being made in the British publication.
“Forever Family says its aim is to achieve unity ‘in the battle against racism, inequality and injustice’ — and who would argue with that. Yet, to me, the atmosphere was one of intimidation that is out of place in our democratic society …
Indeed, there have been no scenes like this on British soil since the outlawed IRA was operating in Northern Ireland at the peak of the Troubles, when its masked parades contributed to its culture of terror.” [Source: The Daily Mail]
Canada is also facing an assault on its educational system, with astonishingly woke “social justice” practices being implemented across elementary school curriculums. In a 2012 op-ed, “Why Are Schools Brainwashing Our Children?”, journalist Cynthia Reynolds notices a disturbing trend of pushing adult issues onto children.
Just how bad is this issue? Well, the Toronto School Board included links to advice on its website suggesting “kids explore their sexuality by experimenting with sex toys and vegetables.”
The ultra-leftist agenda is hardly restricted to the U.S.; the U.S. simply has the strongest stalwart against it.
In many ways, President Trump is not just representative of democracy for Americans, but also for the Western world in general. If the Trump domino falls, so may all the liberties it’s guarding.
Never has an election mattered so much for the future of the United States.
Furthermore, the race protests in Great Britain over George Floyd made exactly zero sense, particularly in a country where the police don’t carry guns and a “life sentence” just seven years. Exactly what criminal injustice is being protested in the UK? If anything, legal injustice against law-abiding citizens should be protested, but that would just be far too rational.
