To Takeover a Nation Make Sure the Sons Knows Less Than the Fathers

March 8, 2010

We all as children thought that we knew more than our parents at one time or another. I mean what did they know? They were old and out of touch with what was hip at that time, Right. (Wow, did I just say hip?) Of course we did, but as we got older we realized that our parents were getting smarter.

Well, it seems that today the politicians, and educators are reinforcing those feelings in the youth, telling them that the older generation is not as smart as they are when it comes to the environment, or what is taking place around the world. That they (the children) should not have to listen to the older generation when it comes to things that have to do with the environment. After all it is our generation and the those before us that polluted the air water, and soil. They are sending messages that basically tell them, the government will tell them what is right, and that their parents just are going to harp at them. This is nothing all that new except, unlike generations before them, the kids are taking it to heart.

So as they push that agenda down their throats, that are trying to remove key moments from the history books and classes. As those who have children is the public school system within the last 20 years may have noticed; They have been teaching less and less of the history that we were taught when we were in school, and in some cases are changing it.

When my daughter was in the 10th grade I noticed that in the history book that she had, John Fitzgerald Kennedy had less courage than Marilyn Monroe. That W.W.I, W.W.II, Korea, and Vietnam barely happened according to the book she was reading. It made me wonder what the hell was going on. Not only with the school system, but also with the School Board. The books that were introduced into the system had to be approved by them. I was told by a friend on the board, this was the best of the choices that were given to them.

Back to the present. Books are being introduced into the curriculum that are acting as if World War One or Two never happened. Vietnam, the war that was unpopular because of its length, is covered in a paragraph. Not a mention of George Washington, or Abraham Lincoln. It’s things like these which remind me of the saying, “To takeover a nation, make sure the son knows less than the father.” So when your child comes home tonight, ask to see their school books and pray they are learning at least as much as you know.

    This is a great post Aba! I see this already in my third grader here. Things do seem to be depleted from history lessons they are being taught. I bet however when she gets to middle school they be shoving 9-11 down their throats instead of WWI, WWII, etc…
