Part Six of our series on “Public School Demands Patriotic Global Citizen Allegiance from Kids”
Paul Gordon summarizes the whole document and why he believes it reflects an agenda that is anti-human, anti-liberty, and anti-individual and why the advancement of this global citizen agenda might dward the atrocities of the 20th century.
….we got to the word that pushed my flush of gentle red to a beating crimson flame, patriotism. As part of the universal values, the document listed patriotism. Let’s be clear here, what this document purports to do is to express a program of Student Conduct that includes, as part of that program, patriotism.
While already preparing to engage in full froth, my eyes traversed the myriad of minefields set against one who held on to an individualistic worldview. Finally, I reached defcon EFFING HELZ when I read this sentence; ” All members of our community should be aware of those behaviors that are contrary to good student behavior and could lead to consequences as related to the Code of Conduct.”
As you read that sentence, I want you to travel with me, as I did this past Tuesday, August 29th, back to one of the “Universal” values listed in the beginning, patriotism. Have you coupled those two moments together, as I did? If so, did you proceed to mimic the flame, fury and explosion of what surely must be the Super volcano under Yellowstone the next time it lets loose its molten fists of doom?
Well, if you didn’t, don’t worry, I got this. I emoted plenty enough to cover the full rage of a thousand parents who fully understood what I understood about the role this school was presuming to take in my daughter’s life, the engineer of life, a life built for one purpose, to serve the state. If my daughter doesn’t demonstrate patriotism she could suffer consequences. This is LITERALLY the thought police. It’s the kind of code of conduct you’d expect from Kim Jung Un, not your local school principle.
At this point, if you’re conservative, perhaps you’re thinking I’m overreacting. I get it, you see value in patriotism, you see usefulness in nationalism. That’s fine, but please don’t advocate for my child to be “taught” to believe as you do. I prefer my child be equipped, rather than programmed, even if it means being programmed to think as you do.
But, if you ARE conservative, hold on kids. That patriotism stuff is just a backdoor that’s intended to take your kid on a journey that places their loyalty, their patriotism far beyond the border of your beloved America.
To understand that, you have to look at the third component of the four listed for the school’s Framework for Citizenship: “Global Understanding: To develop- respect and appreciation for all people and beliefs, valuing the various cultures, races, and individual characteristics of our schools.”
Ask yourself this question, do you want your child to respect ALL people and ALL beliefs? As I explain in the video above, do we tell our children to appreciate the belief system of a Pol Pot who murdered more than half of the ‘citizens’ of Cambodia because he had a belief that he needed to purge the population to create a worker’s paradise? No, of course not. This value is about getting your child to think globally, preparing your child to accept a global citizenship.
So, if you’re a conservative, before you smile, proud of your school and the flag it will have your child salute and chant to every morning, remember that the flag, that nationalist patriotism is just a backdoor to global citizenship……
