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.

Joseph Stalin once said he didn’t care who voted or how, but who counted the ballots. Like Stalin, the Democrats discovered that the voters weren’t important; the ballots were.

The Biden Family Crime Syndicate

The Biden Family Crime Syndicate

While it was successfully covered up by the Democrat Party allies in the media, who declared that the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop was the result of “Russian disinformation,” it’s since been determined that the laptop in question was and is legitimate. Was Barack Obama worried in 2019 that Biden’s criminal activities would come to light during a presidential campaign and could result in President Trump’s reelection, which is why he tried to subtly discourage Biden from running?

For their own safety and security ⏤ Japan and South Korea ⏤ who have both the economic abilities and nuclear technologies, should publicly declare their intention to go nuclear, because of North Korea’s unconstrained military and aggressive ambitions, and adding insult to injury, they most certainly cannot any longer depend on American resolve to protect them in…

My Journey to Jesus – Young, Married, and Stupid

It did not bother me that the rest of the married reclass guys were all cheating on their wives, but it bothered me a great deal that they thought it was funny I was not cheating on mine. It says a great deal about the morality of the typical soldier at the time, that cheating was so very common as to make not-cheating joke-worthy. And I had no way of knowing that back at home; my wife was all but living with another man…

It’s What Donald Trump Didn’t Say

Someone put a word in Trump’s ear, and he listened. More importantly, Trump had a splendid record of success in keeping his promises. Conversely, MAGA Conservatives have lost faith in the ability of the Federal Government to right the economy, restore energy sources to pre-Biden levels, protect us from criminals freely roaming the streets, and end their screwball…
