I'm seething at how "woke" teachers and administrators are destroying our children's literary heritage and replacing it with filth and trash, under the guise of "relevance" and such twaddle.
Classic children's books in a Cambridge University archive are set to be labelled with 'trigger warnings' for 'harmful content relating to slavery, colonialism and racism'.
Researchers are reviewing more than 10,000 books and magazines to expose offensive authors after campaigners demanded teachers censor racial slurs when reading Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird.
With other modern classics like Little House On The Prairie and the works of Dr Seuss dubbed as potentially harmful, Femail has examined other children's texts which have come under fire.
Criticism includes that of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book which was slammed for it's 'colonial' depiction of animals and Roald Dahl's Matilda which was dubbed transphobic for it's portrayal of masculine Miss Trunchbull.
Here, FEMAIL takes a look at what other much-loved bedtime stories could be at risk of being 'cancelled'.
There's much more at the link, including details of the allegations against many popular books.
Then, to replace it, modern "relevant" materials are being distributed that amount to nothing less than pornography in at least some cases. Divemedic provides a graphic example.
This is NOT an entirely accurate description of this book. The book is ACTUALLY about how the main character, Mike Munoz, a 22 year old half Mexican boy who mows lawns for a living. By the end of the book, he discovers how Capitalism is racist and homophobic, and this is why success and happiness are eluding him.
There are descriptive homosexual sex scenes in the book, “F” bombs are sprinkled throughout, and the entire American way of life is painted as evil. This book contains graphic sex scenes between children as young as nine years old, which falls under the umbrella of kiddie porn.
. . .
So why am I writing this post? Because this book is in the library of many schools. It is on the required reading list for some classes in middle and high schools in Texas, Florida, and Virginia (where parents aren’t allowed to have a say in what their kids are learning). If you want to read some scary stuff, read the comments to the Texas article, where adults try to justify this book by citing studies about elementary school aged children engaging in sex.
. . .
I have said this before: There are activists in schools who are trying to fill your children’s heads with propaganda. They are grooming your kids to be sexual and economic slaves. I spent eight years as a public school teacher, I know. There are many good teachers who care about this country and the kids in their care. There are also hard left communist hacks, pedophiles, and slackers who are just there for a paycheck. Those teachers are the ones who are spotting kids that are malleable, and creating little communist f*** toys for themselves.
. . .
At this point, I cannot stress enough: Get your kids out of public school. Even in private school, pay close attention to what they are learning and studying. If you don’t, you might wake up one day to discover that there is a purple haired Marxist with a penchant for b******** little boys living in your house who just turned you in to the FBI for not being “woke” enough.
Again, more at the link. Thanks, Divemedic, for doing a public service by bringing that to our attention.
He's not alone in drawing attention to the sexualization of our kids through the books they're being forced to read. An organization called Toxic Schools is drawing attention to problems in Virginia schools.
Virginia state law explicitly states that “a parent has a fundamental right to make decisions concerning the upbringing, education, and care of the parent’s child.” (Va. Code Ann. § 1-240.1)
But government officials and schools are secretly working overtime to take away parent’s rights, to make sure that most people—including many parents—don’t know what’s actually happening in their children’s schools.
It’s not fair.
And it violates the trust we put in our schools.
At a recent Fairfax County School Board meeting, a concerned citizen showed a graphic novel aimed at teen readers that she found in the high school library. Turns out it was also available in many other Virginia high schools. It contained images that were pornographic. She was shut down by the school board.
Fairfax County Public Schools set up committees to review the books and decide whether to continue to stock those books. Here’s what they are not doing:
- They aren’t examining how these books made it into the libraries in the first place.
- They aren’t holding anyone responsible for making the decision to make these books available.
- They aren’t reviewing the schools for similar, inappropriate books and materials.
What else is going wrong in public schools?
See for yourself some of the recent stories of toxic schools, and please share any we have missed.
More at the link. It's worth clicking over there to read parents' stories of what they've uncovered.
An attempt by Toxic Schools to run a 30-second advertisement, showing exactly what sort of pornography was being foisted upon children in Virginia, was blocked by local TV stations, who would only show a "blurred" version of it, omitting the offensive material. The organization has made the uncensored version available on its Web site. I urge you to click over there and take a look, so that you're fully informed of what's being done to our kids by the powers that be.
Friends, if we allow this to be done to our children through our inattention, carelessness or neglect, we deserve all our children are going to become. Needless to say, they don't deserve that. They deserve much better of us. Furthermore, speaking as a Christian pastor, I'll add that we're going to be held accountable one day for what we permitted others to do to our children. I hate to think of what that judgment might be.
This must be stopped - and the only people who can stop it are parents.
