Elementary schools teach children at the most fragile and impressionable ages. Ages six to twelve — children are innocent, persuadable, malleable. For the proper care of our children, elementary schools must be held to the highest standards of care and objectivity. But what happens to these children when leftist politics invade and alter their social studies curriculum to teach our kids that America is a country of hate, inequity, and oppression? What happens when children no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance or celebrate Veterans Day, but instead regurgitate the words “racism is a primary institution of the United States” and celebrate “Indigenous Peoples Day”? What happens to our future? Do we lose America as we know it? Do elementary schools fail our children? 

Wake up America.

Based on information published by the propagandists behind the Pollyanna “Racial Literacy Curriculum,” some elementary schools in Virginia, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, California, Rhode Island, Missouri, and Illinois have adopted the mind-blowing, politically-charged brainwash that they tout as education. Topics for Kindergarten to Grade 8 include: implicit bias, white privilege, intersectionality, LGBTQ issues, racism as a “primary institution of the US,” and other such leftist agenda talking points. 

Children are taught to see skin color first, to assess the negative societal bias against that skin color, and then to fix it by providing preferential treatment to that group. Of course fixing it is complicated. So, children are taught to engage in political activism in order to achieve this goal. Make no mistake, I am not engaging in political hyperbole; the Pollyanna curriculum is clear about their political activism objectives: “By the end of the unit, students will set commitments for rectifying current social ills, such as learning and planning how to carry out anti-racist activism and/or social advocacy in their communities and/or to improve their everyday lives.” Leftist political engagement is thus an educational requirement, an “objective” standard. 

Interestingly, this victim curriculum audaciously excludes Jewish and Christian victims who experienced the most excruciating forms of extermination in known history: the Holocaust’s genocide of 6 million Jews and the Armenian genocide, the Islamic murder of 1.5 million Christians. The Nazis were white; but so were the Jewish people they murdered. The Turks and the Armenian Christians were not of opposite skin colors either. Is the problem for Pollyanna liberals that these victims are antithetical to the color-me-victim design of Pollyanna?

But that’s not all. Schools which engage in this curriculum are erasing Columbus Day and replacing it with “Indigenous Peoples Day.” These schools are holding classes on Veterans Day, as it is no longer celebrated. These schools are also eliminating the Pledge of Allegiance. America as we know it, a land of heroes, freedoms, and dreams coming true, is being replaced by the imagery of a “white” hateful monstrosity.

Our kids are being brainwashed by American leftists at their most impressionable age and at their most impressionable place: elementary school. Propaganda in elementary school is extremely effective. It has been a tactic heavily utilized by socialists in Germany, USSR, China, etc. Younger minds are more easily manipulated, after all. I am sounding the clear and present danger alarm. Our children are in trouble. 

What do we do? How do we stop this? How do we save America’s children? 

Leftist propaganda in college-level and high school academics is well known. But conservatives have not had much success in rebalancing the scales. After two decades of litigation and vociferous opposition to the socialist hold of our campuses, conservatives are holding on for dear life; barely. There are no new strategies for saving our older students. No new tactics have been proposed and conservatives are not admitting failure in their attempts to rebalance. We need to admit failure and propose new solutions. 

Start thinking. Start acting. A bit of murmur and litigation will not be enough to save our kids. We need to mobilize more effectively. The time is now and the goal is to save our children. 

Our local communities need to get very active and very much involved in their elementary school curriculums. Parents need to make it a priority to call their schools and demand copies of their curriculums. Publicize all the socialist agenda that you find. Tell your politicians. Repeat. Make it clear that you will not stand for brainwashing. Continuously think of how you can be more effective and propose new strategies. Share your ideas. Every local political group and town hall meeting needs to do the same and prioritize the education of our children. 

Save our education while we still can. Save America’s future.

And to those parents who are fearful of retaliation by the schools or teachers: remember that you no longer have the luxury of hoping someone else will do the dirty work for you — they haven’t. And, now, here we are, already infested by leftist social propaganda. You don’t have a choice anymore. Your kid is on the front lines of the leftist social war against America. Save your kid.
