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.

WAR by any Means Necessary Captures First American POWs

If you ever complained about fraud in the 2020 elections or the insane mandates related to the CCP virus, YOU are now considered to be a “domestic violent extremist.” YOU are now the enemy. If you think for one moment that this out-of-control, communist-controlled Administration occupying our White House will stop with the “prisoners” now being held captive in DC jails, you are delusional…

Viral Diversity and the Pandemic Response

This spring after the CDC was overloaded with >10,000 vaccine failure cases with full-blown COVID-19 after being completely vaccinated, the CDC notified Americans it was only going to track and report COVID-19 in the unvaccinated. This was a giant blunder since there is a great need to study why the vaccines are failing in order to…

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, named eight members of a new 13-member investigative committee to keep the contentious matter before the public⏤mostly a Democrat party lineup with the exception of Rep.

We face a flood of broken things which are important to us. Such as safe and secure borders, law and order, freedom of speech, medical freedom, the right to bear arms, a society without racism… we are losing them all. How then to turn things around? First, we must learn quickly how to use deception. This does not mean telling the Nazi-type big lies that they do…

Ahmadinejad Against the Ayatollah Regime Should Not Be Ignored

Ahmadinejad Against the Ayatollah Regime Should Not Be Ignored

Ahmadinejad’s outbursts against the regime should not be ignored by the West. On the contrary, his opposition to the regime should be used as a perfect reason to bolster all Iranian counter-revolutionary factions to help bring forth the fall of the Ayatollahs’ terrorist Theocratic Regime at the earliest possible time, to save the Middle East and the world from a possible Nuclear War…

State Republican Election Directors in Bed with Socialists

State Republican Election Directors in Bed with Socialists

The big question arising from these strange bedfellows is not whether leftist groups are solidly embedded into critical election policymaking organizations. That’s a fact. Rather, it is; why are Republicans playing ball at all? If the election of 2020 is not straightened out before 2022, the end result will be no different. We’ll be spending through 2024 chasing our tails…

“If you don’t get involved in politics, you will be governed by your inferiors,” Plato. Joe Biden and the Biden Cabal will make sure that happens. Teachers will no longer be the best ever. The Communist National Education Association will force Critical Race Theory on schools through GRANTS. Teachers are making it happen by their compliance. Parents, get your kids out of Public School…

We are watching two sides of a chess game as the evil puppeteers pull ever more strings to disrupt all efforts to expose what has been more than two decades of a hoax that has placed vast sums of money into the hands of an army of leftist crony capitalists.

Exposing the Cracks in Critical Race Theory

Parents across the nation are banding together to confront School Boards and Superintendents about Critical Race Theory. Parents are increasingly aware that this twisted ideology has no place being taught in American schools.

Hate America, Hate Family, Hate God is the Message

In reality, these communists have no respect for minorities as they believe minorities are always victims of the whites. Their solution: You are born that way, so whites get on their knees and beg for forgiveness, while victimized minorities should step on them. According to CRT, White people have slanted all opportunities in their direction while victimization goes to the minority…

Biden’s Trajectory Is On Track to Eclipse Carter’s Failed Legacy

Biden’s Trajectory Is On Track to Eclipse Carter’s Failed Legacy

As The Washington Post, certainly no right-wing rag reported in May: “Widespread shortages are driving prices higher for everyday items, as an uneven reopening leaves Americans facing the unfamiliar risk of inflation.” Jimmy Carter and Joe Biden both inherited economies that were the envy of the world. Carter’s presidency ended with a term that originated the phrase “stagflation”…

American Military Aid and Return on Investment to Israel

The questions facing the United States in its relationship with Israel should not be based only on finance. There are more important demands to consider, such as dealing with values, interests, scientific and military technologies, counter-terrorism, and international relations. The Democrat party has devolved into a sewer of leftist, Islamist, unruly, unpatriotic, anti-White, anti-American, self-loathing party members…
