The most frequent question people pose to me is: What can I/we do to fight back against the nihilistic anti-American destruction of virtually all the country’s major institutions?

There is an answer.

The single best thing Americans can do to counter the left-wing attack on America—against its freedoms, its schools, its families, its children, its governmental institutions, its sports, its news and entertainment media, its medical establishment, the CIA, the FBI, the State Department, and the military—is to take their children out of America’s schools.

Other than in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), the vast majority of America’s elementary schools, high schools, colleges, and universities teach your child or grandchild almost nothing important; prematurely sexualize them, thereby robbing them of their innocence; and harm them intellectually and morally. They rarely teach them, for example, art or music because they are too busy teaching them race-centered hatred of whites, of America, and of America’s values.

Sending your children to most American schools is playing Russian roulette with their values—but unlike the gun in Russian roulette, which has a bullet in only one of its six chambers, the schools’ guns hold four or five bullets.

In many elementary schools, your child is taught that gender is chosen and that there is no difference between boys and girls (in a growing number of schools, the teachers are told not to call their students “boys and girls”); they are taught about masturbation; and many children from first grade on attend “Drag Queen Story Hour,” wherein an obvious man wearing women’s clothing, garish makeup, and a wig entertains them.

Given that all this is well-known, why do any non-left—meaning, liberal or conservative—parents send their children to American schools?

One reason is they are in denial. Many parents don’t want to know what their children are being taught and the consequent damage done to them. They don’t really believe schools will ruin their children, let alone their children’s relationship with them.

These parents should speak to any of the millions—yes, millions—of Americans whose children have contempt for America, for free speech, and for their parents as a result of attending an American college or even high school. I meet such people at every speech I give, and I speak to them regularly on my radio show. Ask these parents, if they could redo their lives, whether they would keep their child in school.

A second reason is they feel they have no choice. If they remove their child from the local public or private school (most private schools are just as committed to anti-American indoctrination over education as public schools), what will they do with their child? They often can’t find a local school that doesn’t harm their child. They can’t necessarily even rely on Christian or Jewish schools. Most of them are as “woke” as most secular schools. And if they do find a school that teaches rather than poisons, they may not be able to afford the tuition.

The only other option, then, is to homeschool one’s child. The problem is that many parents assume this is essentially impossible. For one thing, they assume that one of the parents would have to leave his or her work, which would mean a serious reduction in the family’s income. In addition, homeschooling strikes most people as simply too daunting a task, even if they could afford to take it on.

Neither fear is entirely justified. It’s true that, at least at the outset, a working parent may have to cut back from full-time work, and it’s true that no matter what the family’s financial condition, there are challenges to taking one’s children out of school and homeschooling them.

But given the low intellectual state of most American schools, the damage they do to young children’s innocence, and the anti-American, anti-white, anti-Western indoctrination in most schools, if you are a parent of school-age children, what is your choice?

Other than a) finding a good school that b) you can afford, you have no other choice. You are fooling yourself if you think the odds are that after attending American schools from kindergarten through college (not to mention through graduate school), your child will turn out well-educated, intellectually alive, rational, kind, happy, well-adjusted, grateful to be American, and respectful of you and your values.

While there are some wonderful young Americans who recently attended American schools, and there are some lost souls who were homeschooled, American schools are largely producing the following:

Poorly educated students. Ask your college son or daughter to diagram a sentence; identify Joseph Stalin, “The Gulag Archipelago,” or the Soviet Union; name the branches of the American government; identify—or just spell—Beethoven; date the Civil War; identify the Holocaust; and name which sentence is correct—“He gave the book to my friend and me” or “He gave the book to my friend and I.”

Angry young people. Why wouldn’t they be? First, they graduate college with a huge load of debt, having received almost nothing useful for their money. Second, if they are anything other than a white heterosexual Christian male, they have been taught to regard themselves as victims of oppression. Third, their future is so bleak they may not even have one: They are threatened with extinction by climate change.

The single best thing Americans can do to fight the left-wing destruction of the country is to withdraw from the “educational” system that is actively and deliberately miseducating them by the tens of millions. If millions of American parents did so, the country would turn around as fast as you could say “teachers unions.” If they don’t, their children will continue being used as guinea pigs in the left’s sick and dystopian experiment.

Isn't the whole basic point of gnosticism that one should do good works to others, that knowledge should be sought?


Actually, the Gnostics didn't believe in good works - that was what became Orthodox Christianity. Gnosticism is all about one's inner journey to discover Christ for himself. Gnosticism failed because there were relatively few people who would undertake essentially a hermitic existence to gain enlightenment. As such, it was painted as an elitist heresy.

Orthodox leaders preached something accessible to almost everybody - do good works, and you are saved. We all saw how this went down come time of the Reformation, where first the Lutherans, then the Calvinists proclaimed that no good works, however magnificent, can save one's soul; it is purely by the grace of God alone that one achieves salvation.

There's a pretty good book by Elaine Pagels, "The Gnostic Gospels," which was the result of scholarship on 4th century texts discovered hidden in a Nag Hammadi cave in upper Egypt. It's well worth the read. In particular, the Gnostics believed that there was a false god, Ialdaboth, who pretended to have created the universe, and that most people worshipped. Instead, they believed that there was a true god of creation, and it was one's purpose to come to know this god in the face of massive disinfo by the the false impostor god.

That's not evangelical thinking. It's just "believe in Jesus and you're saved - you're a flawed human being, do whatever you like, and ask for forgiveness".

Good works don't lead to salvation is my understanding of much of Protestant religion. Am I incorrect? I used to watch this youtube series called "The Bible Reloaded" in which they made fun of what are called Chick Tracts. Tiny comic books that are completely devoid of morality. Here's an example.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Z1HuWxbc54&source=patrick.net

The dude on the right is transgendered. I forget his "dead name", but Jack Chick was either a awesome satirist about the Baptist religion, or he was serious. It's difficult to tell. He didn't believe in good works if you are to believe his comic series.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Chick?source=patrick.net

In my youth, I abandoned all Western religions, found my "own" philosophy which (perhaps coincidentally?) agreed with ONE Eastern religion (that was surprising to find out my own concept of "morality" agreed with an ancient religion - but boy, they were like 10x more extreme than I thought) but I ultimately settled on it's all useful to a point and all flawed. If there is a God, it has to be a personal journey to it.

Evolutionary psychology basically makes a basis for how a group can be successful having wildly different ideas. If group A has beliefs a,b,c,d,e,f and group B has beliefs g,h,i,j,k,l these groups will hit conflict at some point, and what you end up after that is group C with beliefs a,g,d,i,k, and f. If you look in human history when one group conquers another group it's never a full obliteration of the culture that loses - sometimes its close to that, but not entirely.

This sounds like one of the first victims of the Inquisition.

This CHRISTIAN sect believed that the being depicted in the Old Testament was evil, and the being depicted in the New Testament was good. They were entirely annihilated, but I have to confess, I've had that thinking too. The god of the old testament seems like a real dick and that actually conforms to evolutionary psychology - old ideas are often replaced with better ideas over time. That's the whole evolution in psychology. Lot of errors though during this improvement process - like the concept that children maybe are transgendered - that seems like an "obvious" error - but maybe in 200 years, the idea of NOT letting your child transgendered will be considered a primitive and crazy superstition.

You might laugh at that, but at one point, divorce - my god, that was a TERRIBLE thing to do.

Algae and simple plant life, like Coal is from Carboniferous Plants from before there were insects like termites and bacteria that could digest Lignin. When these massive trees fell, they just laid there, other than mechanical action of water and wind, they tended to fall on each other until they were buried or there was no space for new plants to grow. Imagine redwood trees that didn't rot, falling on top of each other from age for centuries and millenium.... eventually covered by dust and sand blown over them... countless meters tall laying horizontally.

At the end of this school year, I will no longer have a teaching job. My employer has decided not to renew my contract for next school year. Not because of my abilities as a professional educator. Nope. My teaching is sound. In fact, my principal has told me on more than one occasion that he believes I’m a great teacher. And it’s not because I lack the capacity to form positive relationships with students either. My students really enjoy my class, and I have a great rapport with all of them. Several parents have lauded my instruction during parent-teacher conferences, too.

I lost my chance at teaching at my current school next year because I pushed back against the barbaric and inhumane Covid containment measures, and because I taught my students to think critically about this palpably insane “new normal.”

The Maine Dept of Education has resources for teachers on their website. This resource is for kindergartners and it discusses the LGBT acronym. For trans, the teacher explains that doctors decide a baby’s gender and are sometimes wrong.

The official Maine DOE is promoting this.

In other words, schools are applying for and receiving funding for following federally dictated health decisions, not local.
Most schools applied for this “grant,” which requires a school to implement illegal mandates that deny a child and their parents the right to “informed consent” and medical freedom. Have you wondered how school boards adopted the arrogance of medical dictators? Have you wondered at the same time why some school boards sit despondent, disinterested and sometimes bored at the parental theatrics? This may be why.

She currently teaches first grade, but last year she taught kindergarten. During a recent Zoom meeting with other elementary school teachers Brenna bragged about how she brainwashed her 5 year olds last year with critical race theory, telling the white students that they are privileged due to the color of their skin. Because parents could see what was being taught in schools due to remote learning, Brenna received blowback from some concerned parents who didn’t want their 5 year olds to be poisoned with this toxic communist ideology. Instead of listening to them Brenna mocked them to other teachers and condescendingly said that the people who pay her salary “unknowingly lived privileged lives.”

If Erin Lee had known what her 12-year-old daughter would be exposed to during an afterschool “art club” last May, she would have never allowed her to go.

It began innocently enough. Lee received a text from her daughter asking if she could stay late for an “art club” at Wellington Middle School near Fort Collins, Colorado.

What happened next, though, would change their lives forever.

The “art club” was actually a meeting of the school’s Genders & Sexualities Alliance (GSA) club, a group dedicated to supporting homosexuality, transgenderism, and other nontraditional ideas about gender and sexuality.

When the leader told Amanda (name changed to protect the minor) she must be “queer” if she didn’t feel sexually attracted to anybody, and that she must be “transgender” if she didn’t feel fully comfortable in her own body, the shy little girl suspected something wasn’t right.

According to Amanda, that same leader told her not to tell her parents about what would be discussed that day.


The woman in charge, Kimberly Chambers, who works as a “health equity initiatives coordinator” for Larimer County and director of the pro-LGBT organization SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, also handed out her personal contact information to the children and urged them to contact her anytime.

Chambers’s organization has boasted of teaching children ages 12 to 16 about “polyamory”—relationships with multiple sexual partners simultaneously—and other controversial ideas.

During the afterschool GSA club, according to Amanda, Chambers explained to the children that their family homes may not be a “safe space,” but that there were “resources” available. She also handed out transgender flags and stickers that Amanda understood were supposed to represent the children in the club.

As soon as Lee picked up her daughter at school, it was clear that something was “off,” the mother told The Epoch Times in a series of interviews about the incident.

Amanda, looking confused, showed her mother the transgender paraphernalia she had received from Chambers. The transgender flag represented her, Amanda told her mom.

“My heart started racing and my mind blacked out,” Lee recounted. “I was in so much shock that I struggled to get out any words.”

Even though the GSA leader at school had told Amanda it was OK to lie to her parents, Amanda knew better. Over the days that followed, she told her parents everything, Lee said.

Amanda’s parents could hardly believe what they were hearing. Lee, who has described herself as an “ally of the LGBTQ community” and said she has a history of voting “pretty progressively on social issues,” was appalled.

But that would be just the beginning of an ordeal that continues to haunt the family.

Amanda never went back to the school after that. Instead, her parents put her in a local Christian school, even though it meant Lee would have to work nights to afford it. But as Lee and her husband saw it, there was no other choice.

Despite that Amanda was pulled out of Wellington Middle School, the family’s difficulties grew.

After the lesson, Amanda began to wonder whether she might truly be queer and transgender. Her mental state began to rapidly deteriorate, her mother said.

Multiple family members confirmed to The Epoch Times that prior to what Lee describes as the “grooming” of her daughter at school, Amanda never showed any signs of “gender dysphoria,” the term used by psychiatrists to describe discomfort with one’s biological sex.

Afterward, though, it was hard for the girl to shake the idea.

Lee and her husband, who was outraged by the ordeal, struggled for months with how to talk to their daughter about what had happened.

“We didn’t want to say something that would push her further into this dark hole or further into this transgender label,” Lee said. “And we did exactly what the trusted adults who indoctrinated her told her we would do. We played right into their narrative.”

Weeks after the incident, as her mental state got worse, the parents decided to take Amanda to a therapist. The therapist also ended up being “queer” and sought to affirm the young girl’s confusion about her gender.

Then CPS was threatened by the school and the Groomer, and the parents not affirming the genderbending was a legally acceptable trigger for that.
