Okay, so the majority of us should know by now what Common Core is; for those of you still in the dark (Shame on you!), let me bring you up to speed. According to the Common Core, ASCD website it is described in this way:
“The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.”
—Common Core State Standards Initiative
Now, on the surface this sound harmless and innocent right; it is not until you begin to dig a little deeper that you begin to understand that Common Core is actually a youth indoctrination system, not unlike that used in Nazi Germany to secure the youth of the country for Hitler’s Youth Movement.
The Nazi education system fit in with this, however Hitler wanted to occupy the minds of the young in Germany even more. You see Hitler believed that the future of Nazi Germany was its children. The Hitler Youth was viewed as being as important to a child as school was. Hitler made it very clear what he envisioned and expected from the children:
“The weak must be chiselled away. I want young men and women who can suffer pain. A young German must be as swift as a greyhound, as tough as leather, and as hard as Krupp’s steel.” http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/hitler_youth.htm
So where does common core fit into this Hitler Youth Movement. If we look at one of the long-standing goals of the communist party to successfully infiltrate America, number 17 states: “Get Control of the Schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the Party line in textbooks.” http://www.free2pray.info/communism.html
This is precisely what Common Core is doing; it is indoctrinating our children into the progressive/communist ideology and softening the curriculum. Common Core is even rewriting our National History; for example we are all familiar with the recent finding in the McDougal Littell History book “The Americans” where it described both the second and third Amendments to the Constitution like this:
“The Second and Third Amendments — grant citizens the right to bear arms as members of a militia of citizen-soldiers and prevent the government from housing troops in private homes in peacetime,” the book’s summary reads. In a separate box on the same page it paraphrases the amendment as “the right to bear arms,” not the right to “keep” and bear arms.”
In an effort to do my part to help my fellow-man, I thought I’d share the second and third Amendments with you here, in chronological order so as not to confuse.
Amendment II: A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
*Please take note here that it does NOT refer to the people as being only police officers, or Military personnel, it simply states people that would include all of us, which would also include you as well. Amazing isn’t it. You learn something new every day!
Amendment III: No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law. http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/bill_of_rights_transcript.html
Remember after the Boston Marathon bombing, when the police went from house to house and ordered the people out of their own homes, so that they could look for the bad guys, well according to the passage above, oops a daisy, they were in fact breaking the Law of the Land and infringing upon the unalienable rights of those individuals.
This is just one example of what Common Core is doing to our educational system, as if our public educational system needs any help in lowering it’s already nauseatingly low standards.
Within the Common Core National system there will of course be some mandatory fiction here and there. One of the books sophomores at Buena High School in Sierra Vista, Ariz., will be required to read is a 1992 novel called “Dreaming in Cuban” by Cristina Garcia. Here is a passage from that book:
“Hugo and Felicia stripped in their room, dissolving easily into one another, and made love against the whitewashed walls. Hugo bit Felicia’s breast and left purplish bands of bruises on her upper thighs. He knelt before her in the tub and massaged black Spanish soap between her legs. He entered her repeatedly from behind.”
That steamy passage can be found on page 80 of the book.
Now keep in mind here, that sophomores are 15 and 16-year-old youths. Now, I can tell you that as a grandmother, I would be horrified if any of my grandchildren were made to read such erotica to themselves let alone out loud in a class room environment! Where are the classics such as Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird, or Erich Maria Remarque’s “All Quiet on the Western Front,” or Ernest Hemingway’s “A Farewell to Arms?” Again this is another prime example of Common core dumbing down our society, further than it already is. One only need look to the Mainstream Media, or Hollywood to see the results of what the communist/progressives in this country have already accomplished within the last 30 years!
I was shocked when I watched this video, not one of the other 30 parents at that Town Hall meeting, stood up and defended this father, NOT one! They stood by and watched this father be manhandled by this security guard, forcibly removed from the meeting for going off script. According to Fox News, parents were instructed to write their questions on a note card, and pass them forward, and then the individuals hosting the forum would cherry pick which questions to answer. Well this father was having none of that, and asked his question without following the procedures. Oh well, excuse the hell out of me, I thought this was America, where we are free to ask questions without fear of being arrested!
Why didn’t anyone stand up to this security guard? What in the hell is wrong with people? Have we just decided to throw in the towel, and allow these bullies to wipe their boots upon us?
I am so ashamed of my country and of these fellow countrymen and women. Shame on them for sitting by and watching this and doing nothing! What if that had been their husband, their mother, their daughter, their best friend, would they have sat there and watched and done nothing? Who are we becoming America? Have the progressives/communist won? Have they succeeded in their final goal? Are we just going to sit down, shut up and watch them usher in the 4th Reich?
