The Impact of Toxic Propaganda on America’s Children

Whether immigrant or home-grown, doesn’t living in America warrant some special gratitude? Aren’t you lucky as hell?

I can’t help but wonder and worry how today’s American culture–an environment impacted by the COVID-19 shutdowns, virtual social isolation, national disrespect, and victim identity politics–will influence today’s children.

An America with “childhood cheer” in lockdown:

America didn’t cause the pandemic, and indeed, it isn’t the only country to suffer its devastatingly destructive social and economic consequences.

Nevertheless, “the virus” has infected the American experience for everyone.

Most particularly, try to imagine yourself as a small child first experiencing a new world of masked, unsmiling strangers where nervously suspicious people everywhere distance from one another outside six-foot arcs.

While recently driving past an elementary school, the scene reminded me of televised views of maximum-security prison inmates being briefly allowed time outside in an exercise yard.

The little jailbirds were all masked and socially distanced in line amidst lots of tantalizingly colorful slides and other vacant playground equipment.

It struck me that these were the lucky ones…children who were actually allowed to be with other masked socially distanced friends in a nurturing school environment. But why weren’t they running around like ordinary masked bandits and exercising joyful energy on such a warm, bright day?

After all, Covid transmission and serious health consequences among children are recognized to be very rare.

Who were they supposed to be afraid of or protecting?

It seemed more to reflect a projection of adult paranoia where instead of everyone being experienced as a potential new friend, we are becoming more and more distrustful of contact with everyone.

An America of virtual relationships:

And remember a bit later when pre-Covid lockdown extracurricular school and community activities such as athletic training, sporting events, music and art clubs, dances, and theater performances were all important aspects of our social experiences?

That was when we were taught how to explore important lessons about how to cooperate and interact with others in various situations.

We learned how to navigate and persevere through personal challenges. We developed special and shared interests and abilities. We uncovered unique aspects of our own identity.

Through direct physical proximity, we also learned the necessary but difficult and complex lessons about forming genuine friendships.

We built mutual trust with our peers.

We experienced disappointments and betrayals.

We learned how to adapt, expand, and become more valuable and rewarded in society as productive social beings from these experiences.

When today’s children and adolescents grow up, will they see themselves as a generation whose lives will forever fall in the dark shadow of a global pandemic?

An America at war with its heritage:

Will that new generation recognize and respect the marvelous American principles and virtues my generation and yours inherited from very wise, brave, and generous generations that preceded ours?

Conversely, will many instead view America through the distorted lens of the 1619 Project as a systemically and eternally racist country forever rooted in plantation slavery of the pre-Civil War South?

This abhorrent fiction is now being introduced into schools with the express purpose to reframe the country’s history by replacing 1776 as America’s founding date and substituting 1619.

When students and families visit our national Capitol to witness how our government works, will the area remain enclosed, as now, by a seven-foot-high security barrier topped with barbed Cortina wire? How many of our sacred national monuments and heroic memorials will remain standing and unmolested?

Will the next elected leaders of our country be under non-stop impeachment investigations theatrically staged as rancorous media events by the losing side?

An America of identity victimhood:

Remember when we were taught to believe in an American dream that almost anything is possible for all rugged and determined individuals who are prepared to seize upon equal opportunities to achieve high goals through determination and hard work?

Do you recall when America celebrated an enriching cultural heritage of “melting pot” multicultural social, religious, ethnic, and racial diversity?

Both of those core ideals are now under dastardly malign assaults by an ideological counterculture of wokeness that divisively views America’s populace as “privileged” and “victim” classes characterized according to stereotypic mushed-together skin color, alphabet, and acronym group identities under the contradictory guise of promoting “equity and inclusion.”

Nearly every major U.S. company now has a diversity and inclusion department offering lessons in unconscious bias, workshops on “white privilege,” and “struggle sessions” on systemic racism to their employees.

Scariest of all, more and more school districts across the country are all in on creating neo-Marxist “critical race theory” programs to instruct K-12 administrators and teachers how to indoctrinate impressionable young minds not only that they live in a racist society, but that they and their parents (if white) carry that historical stain.

Imagine the amount of senselessly wasted classroom time squandered on such egregiously toxic propaganda that might otherwise be devoted to learning valuable information and skills that prepare students for constructive and rewarding lives in this great nation…or anywhere they choose.

It’s our job to open their youthful eyes to these unparalleled American opportunities, and by example, to reopen our own mind’s eyes to remember the limitless joys and opportunities we so very fortunately inherited and grew up with.

Who Is Really At the Helm in the White House?

If we choose to ignore the evidence, or to merely grumble about his performance, then Biden and his cohorts will proceed unhindered with their agenda. We need to take a close look at his exploits and see what patterns are formed. Then, let’s take it a step further and ask who might be coaching Joe. Knowing the enemy is the first step toward defeating that enemy…

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

We the People, after creating this Frankenstein monster of a government and setting it loose on an unsuspecting world, now cower in fear of our creation, unwilling to stand and defend even our own selves against it. Why did the framers of this union create this Constitution the way they did? What was the purpose that We the People had in mind when we ordained and established it?

What to Expect if the Tyranny in Australia Hits Home

What to Expect if the Tyranny in Australia Hits Home

Since August, Australians cannot go out of their homes for longer than an hour to socialize or shop. We are witnessing the extreme government tyranny that can take over a once-free society and the speed with which it can happen. It’s a snapshot of what could be coming to the United States of America and other freedom-loving countries, and we’d better start paying attention…

If you’re wondering what affiliations are connected with the CDC through partnerships of Corporations, Foundations & Organizations, look no further, you will see a pattern emerge, and why the push for vaccinations is everywhere we go, there are so many groups doing business with the CDC. Is the CDC playing global political and military chess with the nation and the world…

Sure, Bin Laden is Bad, But Those Filthy MAGA People

Bush invoked January 6th in his comments on the hallowed ground of Shanksville during the 9/11 ceremonies. In the flight path of the downed airliner, Bush made the following statement: ‘’Violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home,” “are children of the same foul spirit.” What Bush said is simply the talking points of the establishment…

Covid-19, Social Standing, and the New World Order

Covid-19, Social Standing, and the New World Order

A government that can force people to take medical treatments against their wishes can do whatever it wants, and the fact that Joe Biden’s order is unconstitutional will not stop tens of millions of Americans from being forced to get vaccinated against their will, in order to continue supporting their families. By the time the Supreme Court shoots this order down (assuming they do), the damage will already be done…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #3

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #3

We have had no side effects that we are aware of from the vaccine. Does this mean we are free from future side-effects? Should we forego any boosters? Did the vaccine destroy our natural immunity? Should I be more concerned about getting the virus or future variants? How accurate is the VAERS data? Join us on the Voice of a Nation for our third COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough…

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

One MD remarked on the day of the sham approval, Do they actually think that with a stroke of the pen—like a magic wand—“approval” suddenly occurs? Nothing the FDA, pharma, or otherwise says or do is a substitute for 10-12 years of research and development of a biologic. But, sadly, most of the world will believe so. The FDA increasingly fast-tracks expensive drugs and vaccines with significant side effects and unproven health benefits. According to FDA’s own employees, drug company payments bias regulators, with “an inclination toward approval.”

Spreading Hate and Racial Division Since 2009

Spreading Hate and Racial Division Since 2009

Indeed there are extremists here in this country that we need to be concerned with. They are the career politicians who stay in office for decades, an ‘extreme’ length of time for anyone to hold political office. And Barack Obama is an extremist. After all, he wants to “fundamentally transform” the United States…
