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.

There are a home-school communities such as Front Royal, Virginia.

Christendom College in Front Royal seems to attract home schoolers to the community.

Also there is a Padre Pio Academy and Seton Home Study School there.

I have the whole book if you want it. It's called "Gender Queer". The author has it online, but you have to click through it, so I did, downloading each image one at a time.

I don't think it's much worth reading, but if you want to know what is actually the book, I've got it. I should compile it into a single PDF but that's effort, but I'll do it if asked.

Thank you, but I'd rather not read that.

It's been about 25 years since I've been in Indiana, but I have a hard time believing this is Indiana.

https://notthebee.com/article/illinois-just-passed-a-law-preventing-parents-from-removing-pornographic-books-from-school-senator-kennedy-just-read-from-those-books-aloud-to-illinois-sec-of-state-causing-him-to-squirm


Sen. John Kennedy just made Democrats squirm by reading "Gender Queer," a book that parents can't remove from school libraries due to a new Illinois law

Illinois became the first state to "ban book bans" this summer, signing legislation that would prevent parents from protesting and removing books from school libraries.

Often the books that are supposedly "banned" are really just removed from libraries because they contain pornographic material that Democrats think is totally appropriate for kids.

Today, the Illinois secretary of state came to the US Senate to explain this anti-parent act and was faced with Senator John Kennedy from Louisiana, who decided to read from the super-graphic book "Gender Queer," which we've reported on at length.

[We cannot include the video here as it is too graphic for younger readers] ...

Oh, it's very uncomfortable hearing those words from a senator?
Then why are you allowing KIDS TO READ THEM?

Lefties are, for some reason, dunking on Kennedy, saying he's totally out of his mind for reading this in front of the Senate in DC.

Kennedy is talking about sex acts in front of Congress! How disgraceful! That [checks notes] belongs in school libraries!

We just used the funds given to us by the State of Arizona for our daughters education to enroll her in confirmation classes at a Catholic church. Suck it separation of church and state retards!

In poor areas of Minnesota only about 25% of the children attend public schools regularly. (57% of the children are classified as poor).

Is indoctrination better than no schooling at all???????

Anyone who is anyone has their kids in private school.

And Yes the US is approaching third world math and literacy proficiency.

My daughters math teacher was not doing well, and she was replaced without us having to say anything. Perks of attending a private Christian school, no fucking tenure, just results.

What do you mean approaching? 70% of the population though 300,000 deaths from COVID was a pandemic. You know, less than 1 out of a thousand.

We're there. Hardly anybody has functional math.

GASP!

You mean there are books filled with bullshit and outright lies and are being presented as historically accurate???

Good. Kids should learn they are taught loads of nonsense all time.

As Cameron points out, these books aren't the exception. He's not just cherry-picking here. Scholastic makes a concerted effort to promote groomer books - I'm sorry, LGBT books - to kids.
