Leftists, and the countless leftists of every red hue in between—plus the useful idiots—continue to push the political envelope. This is yet another indication of what they’re up to. Overall, they seek to turn our American laws and traditions upside down, inside out, or destroy them. They're "testing" the nation, to see just how far they can go, even if the move appears over the top. There’s a sense that they're thinking, Well, just throw it out there and see whether it sticks; if too much opposition, retreat and go silent, and move on to the next targeted American institution, value, and other “things American.”
There’s nothing new here. The left’s ninety-year-old battle plan has always been about control of, among other areas, our print and electronic communications, labor/labor unions, education systems. Sometimes leftist actions are very public and at other times remote, so subtle as to overlook them. We used to think, for example, that only college-age kids undergo the Socialist-Marxist ideology woven into their “higher learning” instruction. A kid enters college a “conservative,” and, lo, exits the campus stage left. Mom, Dad, we’re a greedy country; we’re the main cause of “Global Warming” and so many other problems in the world, yada, yada, yada.
But notice how the left has moved downward, to high school teachers, to grade school teaches, and now, to kindergarten teachers--teachers in the remotest of schools to the larger schools. Here, we find they continue to infuse the leftist political curriculum in calculated and weighted doses (Marx and Engel are little too much for the American First Grader, after all).
Into this effort goes the goal to eliminate our national symbols from our children’s daily lives; to alter or eliminate the parents’ stewardship and make the school the dominant “guidance counselor” in the academic life of the fledging kindergartner to the now world wise university graduate. The Flag suddenly disappears from classroom display. What nascent student would notice the absence of the Flag or hanging pictures of our fonders? Consider: Some schools openly no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Among ordinary citizens, one neighbor sues the other because of the disturbing noise his flapping American makes. Indeed, we read of the growing trend in litigation, where residents are restricted by property managers from any display of the Flag, on a pole or draped in a window. Wipe national symbols from the national view.
To arms, Rhode Islanders: You were the last of the 13 original colonies to ratify our Constitution, demanding that the Bill of Rights also contain the guarantee of individual liberties. Despite the media’s politically tendentious manipulation and suppression of news, these alarming stories still emerge with increasing regularity. Every parent whose child attends the Tiogue School in Coventry, every Rhode Islander, every American should summarily ignore any such proscription by a school principal, who serves at the pleasure of a people whose freedom remains ensured through the real barrel of the gun, not through the “concept of the gun.”
