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.

China’s Lust for Power is Only Just Beginning to Unfold

China’s Lust for Power is Only Just Beginning to Unfold

We can all learn from the mistakes and successes that others had before us. Xi Jinping would be foolish to ignore the lessons of Napoleon and Adolf Hitler, who wanted to conquer the world but ended up in isolation and disgrace. This is a defining moment for China. In his quest for global dominance, Is Xi Jinping overreaching so far that he is likely to fall just as his historical predecessors did? 

This Week In COVID: Emergencies Don’t Last For 2 Years

This Week In COVID: Emergencies Don’t Last For 2 Years

Let’s pretend that the CDC didn’t violate 3 Federal Laws in order to hyperinflate COVID data. Let’s pretend that PCR tests are accurate. Let’s pretend that Asymptomatic Transmission is possible. Let’s pretend that all the data the CDC is publishing is 100% accurate and not one single digit of it is fraudulent. Let’s answer the question with the CDC’s published data, ‘Is This An Emergency?’

The mRNA Covid-19 Vaccines Were Designed and Manufactured to Fail

The mRNA Covid-19 Vaccines Were Designed and Manufactured to Fail

This idea is, in fact, from a commercial point of view, quite brilliant actually. One of the only things Fauci is brilliant about is the reason that when the Omicron variant appeared on the scene, the share valuation of Pfizer and Moderna jumped about $60 billion in two days. The motivation for a vaccine that doesn’t work isn’t petty cash. It’s an unending volcanic eruption of money…

COVID-19 Deserves the Best Critical Care

COVID-19 Deserves the Best Critical Care

The National Institutes of Health COVID-19 Guidelines have for more than a year recommended no treatments at home and advised Americans to wait until the difficulty in breathing is unbearable and then seek care in the hospital. This advice will go down in medical infamy. Many ask what happens beyond the doors of the hospital?

Joe Biden is the Least Deserving Spokesman in US History to Lecture on Freedom

Joe Biden is the Least Deserving Spokesman in US History to Lecture on Freedom

The Biden administration’s own human rights and freedom protection failings are finding a growing number of fierce critics at home as we witness astoundingly rapid and expansive federal government assertions of regulatory power and control over increasingly broad aspects of our lives. Joe Biden is the least deserving spokesman in U.S. history to lecture other countries on the sanctity of human liberty from tyrannical oppression…

The Greatest Fraud Ever Perpetrated on Society

The Greatest Fraud Ever Perpetrated on Society

These globalists are hoping to take down the country of our Founding Fathers and replace it with the failed ideas of Lenin, Stalin, Castro, Chavez, and now, Obama and Biden. Yes, eliminating fossil fuels is a suicidal plan already underway in nations such as Canada, Australia, and Germany that are entering energy desperation. Here is a comprehensive list of 23 basic truisms…

Getting off the Trump Train

Getting off the Trump Train

I can tell you with absolute certainty that Donald J. Trump is the most important politician, thus far, in my life. Donald Trump is not the best politician (that would be Ronald Reagan), but he is the most important, as everything that has happened since he became the Republican nominee in 2016 has revolved around…

Natural Immunity: Science for the Intellectually Honest

Natural Immunity: Science for the Intellectually Honest

Washington University School of Medicine found that if you’ve had COVID-19 — even a mild case — you’re likely to be immune for life, as is the case with recovery from many infectious agents. As Dr. McCullough says, if you’ve had it, It’s one-and-done. Make no mistake: if you and I can get this accurate, verifiable information out to others, we will win this battle…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #11

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #11

What are some symptoms that can show up in unvaccinated – already had Covid people, who are around a lot of vaccinated people? Is the povidone-iodine rinse and nasal swab safe for young children? Novavax vaccine appears to be submitting its evidence soon and requesting EUA from the FDA by the end of 2021 here in the US. Does Dr. McCullough have any insight into the clinical trials/ safety and efficacy shown regarding Novavax?

If Math and Nutrition Are Racist, Everything is Racist!

If Math and Nutrition Are Racist, Everything is Racist!

The common element between these two woke theories is that it is racist to expect minorities to make an effort to learn math or nutrition. Learning anything takes effort and practice for anybody of any race or ethnicity. What these “woke” theorists are doing is destroying the concept that some things are better than others, and that it takes effort to get the better things…

The Democrat Party and their News Media Allies Have Blood on Their Hands

The Democrat Party and their News Media Allies Have Blood on Their Hands

I loathe referring to the traditional news media as the “mainstream media” since they are so far out of touch with the real American mainstream. True objective, unbiased journalists are few and far between. It’s hard to understand how a free press can support Obama’s “fundamental transformation” since Marxism and a free press are anathemas to each other…

50 Million Dead: The Price of Woke Radiation Science

50 Million Dead: The Price of Woke Radiation Science

In a process called hormesis, low levels of radon exposure can protect against cancer; 80 milligrams of aspirin are thought to prevent strokes, and trace amounts of selenium help our bodies counteract the harmful effects of mercury in our blood. It’s about time politically-correct federal bureaucrats are held to account for the millions of unnecessary deaths their actions have caused…
