I wanted to share the letter that I wrote and sent to ALL state Democrat Senators today, expressing my great disappointment in their party-line vote against H.B. 324 (North Carolina’s “anti-CRT” bill):
Hello NC Democratic Senator,
I wanted to write you and share my extreme disappointment in your vote in opposition to H.B. 324. You have shamefully voted against the interests of concerned North Carolina parents and concerned citizens. You have let them down, putting race above a sound education… putting party against citizens.
By your vote, you have broken the cardinal rule that we cannot undue past racism and past discrimination by instituting new policies of racism and discrimination. When will it end? When can we start teaching our children about love and acceptance, about community and character ? WHEN ?? Love and acceptance comes more natural to a human child than hate and rejection.
Here is a little history for you:
Addressing the topic of power, Saul Alinsky wrote: “The organizer’s first job is to create the issues or problems, and organizations must be based on many issues. The organizer must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. . . . An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.”
Joseph Stalin once said: “Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.” – Joseph Stalin
And Hitler wrote “whoever has the youth has the future”. (In Hitler’s Germany, education would be the key that ensured that he had “the youth” of Germany). Hitler’s view on education was that it served a sole purpose – to ensure that a child was loyal to the Nazi state to ensure that the Third Reich lasted for 1000 years.
One way in which the Nazis aimed to indoctrinate the younger population was through reforming the education system. They aimed to de-intellectualize education: they did not want education to provoke people to ask questions or think for themselves. They believed this approach would instill obedience and belief in the Nazi worldview, creating the ideal future generation.
The Nazis first focused on changing what students learned. They changed the core curriculum to emphasize sports, history and racial science as the most important subjects. In 1936, sport was taught for a minimum of two to three hours every school day. By 1938, this had been increased to five hours every day. Subjects such as religion became less important and were eventually removed from the curriculum altogether.
The Nazis also adapted where the students learned from. They introduced new textbooks which were often racist, and promoted ideas such imperialism (“manifest destiny”). Any textbook used to educate students had to be approved by the party.
The Nazis also placed great emphasis on who the teachers were. Under the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service Act of 7 April 1933, just three months after Hitler became chancellor, all Jewish teachers, and teachers with undesirable political beliefs (such as communists), were dismissed. This act also made membership of the Nazi Party compulsory for all teachers. The National Socialist Teachers League, creation in 1929, became responsible for the control and education of teachers following the Nazi rise to power. All teachers were required to attend a one-month compulsory Nazi training course, which emphasized Nazi ideology and the importance of advocating the regime’s ideas.
CONGRATULATIONS Senator… With your vote, you joined the ranks of the worst socialist minds of the 20th century. I hope you are happy with yourself.
