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.

Why homeschool? Why support people that you know who homeschool?
Let’s start with some homeschooling statistics
Homeschoolers made up 6.73% of all school-age children (K-12) in the U.S as of 2020/2021.

There were 3.7 million homeschool students in the U.S at the end of 2020 and estimates show that the last two years homeschooling has increased at least 10% per year. That means an estimate of 5.5 million children are being homeschooled for the 2022/2023 is probably fairly accurate. However, the hard data has not been updated since 2018.

A study led by Michael Cogan by the University of St. Thomas revealed that the homeschool graduation statistics are 10% higher than that of students from public schools.

Homeschooled children score 15-30% higher than students in public schools in the standardized academic achievement exams. This is based on reports from The National Home Education Research Institute in 2015.

The National Home Education Research Institute report shows that, irrespective of the parent’s educational level and financial level, homeschoolers can score well.

The top reason for homeschooling is a concern about school environment.

Homeschool students outperform institutional school students academically.

48% of homeschooling households have three or more children.

The average cost of homeschooling is $700-$1,800 per student annually.

Homeschooling saves about $56 billion of taxpayer money annually (probably more now). ...

Is the corruption of the NEA as bad as the WSJ articles implied?

Having done the research, looked up the receipts, I have to conclude that the answer is yes. What the National Education Association is doing is even worse than the WSJ article lays out. As much as I would like to comment on each of these motions, which affect almost all of our children in public schools - I am just going to cut and paste text from their website. Please also go to their website and read their annual meeting minutes.

The items below have been voted on, passed/approved, and will be implemented by NEA teachers throughout schools in the USA. Remember, the National Educational Association is the largest teacher’s union in the nation. ...

HUNDREDS of Muslim Parents Shut Down Dearborn, Michigan School Board Meeting Over Democrat-Endorsed Child Porn Books
By Jim Hoft
Published October 11, 2022 at 6:22pm

For well over a year now American parents have discovered that while they were sending their children to school and trusting them with local school boards and administrators, these same people were pushing porn books in the school libraries.

Many parents around the country were shocked last year when they became aware of the illegal porn books their local schools are pushing on kids in the student libraries.

This phenomenon is taking place across the country.

One book that was found in several libraries is titled, Gender Queer: A Memoir by Maia Kobabe.

The book is a graphic novel with drawings that explains in lurid detail the sexual interactions between two young men, has been inserted into high school libraries across America, despite it violating guidelines against pornography or sexually explicit materials being provided to minors and paid for with our tax dollars.

Gender Queer includes countless images of male-on-male sexual encounters, accompanied by words that one would expect to find inside literary works at adult porn shops or gay sex clubs and bathhouses. Even so, this book was purchased and pushed by school officials around the country, despite it clearly violating county guidelines. ...

Following this news, Merrick Garland sent out the FBI to harass American parents for making a stand against this filth in our schools.

The Biden regime obviously supported this filth. How wicked!

Parents across the country protested against this decision to place porn in our schools. This week Muslim parents shut down a school board meeting over the porn books in their child’s schools.


I'm not a fan of Islam, but Muslim parents are absolutely right to protest their children being taught perversion in school.
447   NuttBoxer   2022 Oct 12, 10:27am  

Islam doesn't seem to bother any of the white parents at the meeting. And I'd venture to say never bothered anyone on Patnet until 09/11/2001, when the US government demo'd the WTC, and started the War of Terror, scape-goating Islam.

Hmm, same way Southerner's never bothered America until they exercised their states rights by seceding from the Motherland. And same way racism never bothered anyone until the Motherland used it to scapegoat Southern Genocide under Grant and Sherman.

Maybe instead of falling for divisive rhetoric and finger-pointing, we need to start looking for who's pointing the fingers, and who's spreading the rhetoric...

Luke 17:2 says, ‘It is better for a person to have a millstone tied around their neck and to be thrown into the sea than for anyone to harm or damage a child.'

And so the question today to the school board is: only you know whether or not your role, the policies, the curriculum, and the things you allow in this school system in Wake County, only you know whether or not a millstone is tied around your neck.

The reality is this: God is going to judge every last one of you for decisions that are made on behalf of children.

You know, this past year, we spent $1 million on a diversity office. And how did that benefit black children? How did it benefit children in general? Well, 78% of children in 3rd-8th grade, black students, are not proficient in math in Wake County.

We're wasting taxpayer dollars putting money towards this diversity office that's not benefitting those who need it the most. Sixty-six percent of 3rd-8th grade students are not proficient in reading. Black students, they're not reading on grade-level, they're not performing mathematically, and they're not going to be able to get jobs in fields like STEM. But we're wasting money on a diversity, equity, and inclusion office while we are failing black students in the name of diversity!

You know, in the Jim Crow era, black students were locked out of the public school system. But today they are trapped in. And many of these students need options. They need school choice. They need the opportunity to take their taxpayer dollars and take it to school systems that will benefit them and support them and educate them.

And as we talk about inclusion and making sure that the trans student feels comfortable and the queer student feels comfortable, what does that have to do with reading, writing, and arithmetic?

As we are teaching cultural Marxism and grooming children to be the next pervert, we are damaging our kids in this public school system and it needs to stop.

‘Woke’ California School Boasts of Having ‘Banned Books’ Featuring Pedophiles, Sexually Explicit Themes

A “woke” California public school is boasting that its library is filled with “banned books” that feature pedophiles, pornographic images, and sexually explicit themes.

Sequoia High School’s library’s media specialist, Betsy Snow, celebrated the books as part of the school’s “Banned Books Week.”

Snow broadcasted books on TikTok and Instagram, including titles containing sexually charged and pornographic imagery.

Among the books is one that features a so-called “sexually mature” 6-year-old boy engaging in sex acts with adults.


Sequoia High School is quite near me, in Redwood City.

Some books should definitely be banned for children, especially boosk which promote pedophilia.

Only 43% of public schools re-opened.

The largest paper in Michigan, The Detroit Free Press, tracked the man down. It turns out he's real, he talked to Dixon, there are pornographic books in his son's school library, the Democrats did nothing about it, and he's switching from the Democrat party to the Republican party because of it.

The man's name is Khalil Othman, and he had this to say:

To claim that I'm not here, I don't exist, I'm not human, that's absolute ignorance. If this person did his due diligence and start researching or has his team do a little bit of research of who's this person who attended Dixon's rally, they will be able to find my name right away easy on social media. Just Google it.

A leading parent activist group has accused Facebook (Meta) CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates of meddling in America’s school system by pushing their own “woke” education agenda.

According to a recent report by Parents Defending Education, the two Big Tech billionaires are spending hundreds of millions of dollars annually in schools in an attempt to reshape America’s education system.

However, the organization warns they are doing it at the cost of students’ academics.

According to a recent report by Parents Defending Education, philanthropic organizations donated over $200 million to about 70 school districts during 2017-2021.

Still, students at these schools are not performing well and failing at math and reading.

The study says grants were being awarded to advance initiatives promoting equitable grading, Social Emotional Learning (SEL), and Critical Race Theory (CRT) instead of academics.

Elon Musk Slams Hollywood: ‘Woke Mind Virus’ Is ‘Pushing Civilization Toward Suicide’

Twitter boss Elon Musk has slammed Hollywood and warned that the entertainment industry has been “penetrated” by “the woke mind virus.”

In a post early on Friday morning, Musk said he believes the left-wing political bias is having a devastating negative impact on society.

He noted that the lack of counter-narrative in entertainment is a major part of the problem.

Musk asked Twitter “What do you think of the culture war?”

A Twitter user responded: “I think the Right needs to start funding more artists, filmmakers, and writers instead of politicians and super-PACs.

“You don’t win a naval war without any ships, and you can’t win a culture war without any culture.

“We’ve been reacting too long.

“Time to go on the offensive.”

Musk said: “I am neither conventionally right nor left, but I agree with your point.

“The woke mind virus has thoroughly penetrated entertainment and is pushing civilization towards suicide.


Musk is right.

@Patrick and @NuttBoxer - it was Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United States that did 9/11 - or at least factions within them - and probably MI6 and a lot of others from the "5 eyes".

This was a coordinated attack on US citizens, it was a propaganda attack, and there wasn't just one player involved. US citizens were sacrificed to get a new 100 year war going by the fucking Neocons. The Neocons are our real enemy. If you want to call them Jewish, whatever, they're not. They're just the 4th Reich. Plenty of them ARE Jewish, and plenty are not.

Those are the fuckers that control BOTH our parties, and intelligence agencies, and our "news" media.
