The Progressive Brainwashing of Our Children Continues

Honestly, I am not surprised in the slightest by this story.  The progressive agenda has been incrementally and insidiously pushed in classrooms for several generations:

Common Core lessons blasted for sneaking politics into elementary classrooms

Some folks may say, "What's the big deal?"  Consider the statements made.

"He [the president] makes sure the country's laws are fair."

Uh, no, he doesn't.  The President only ensures that current law is executed.  Determining whether or not laws are constitutional (fair) is left to the judicial branch.  And even they have overstepped their authority since the early 1800's.  Read Mark Levin's "Men in Black" to educate yourself.

Government officials' commands must be obeyed at all times.

This is wrong on so many levels.  Laws are to be obeyed, not officials' commands.  Even police officers only derive their authority from laws and statutes.  We have no obligation to obey if they act outside of those boundaries.  We the People give limited authority to the government in good faith and trust.  If that is broken, then We the People have no obligation or duty to follow commands that are clearly unconstitutional.  I am not advocating anarchy, but we must be vigilant for abuses of power and not blindly follow orders.

An individual's wants are less important than the nation's well-being.

This seems pretty altruistic and noble.  However, considering the source, you can bet that it is not meant to be.  In fact, if you think about it in the context of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, then it truly flies in the face of everything this country was based on.  Individual liberties, NOT collectivism, is what this country was founded on.  When individuals are free, then the nation as a whole prospers.  This notion that the "nation's well-being" is more important smacks of socialism.  There is a reason that America is the greatest nation on Earth.  And incrementally nibbling away at our individual liberties is not the answer to becoming greater, no matter what so-called Progressive Socialists would have you believe.

Call it out when you see this kind of propaganda in our schools, media, etc.  Only by drawing attention to this sneaky incrementalism can we hope to wake up others.  Otherwise, our children or our children's children will look back and ask the question, "How did it come to this?"
