Social Studies: Paint Me Red

By Nicholas Stix

My son reports that his eighth grade social studies/humanities teacher’s notion of teaching about World War II, is to teach about the horrors of internment camps and the atom bomb. You see, in World War II, America was the bad guy.

She has also taught that FDR “proved” that Herbert Hoover’s “trickle-down economics” was false.

I explained to him that socialists and communists have said the same thing about every Republican president over the past 80-odd years.

I knew this was coming, back in the fall, when I met with her on parents’ night. She explained to me about how the Harlem Renaissance was the high point of American culture, and she was focusing on it, so the kids would get to read higher-quality literature. In other words, she thinks that racist hacks like Langston Hughes were the best American literature had to offer.

He used to write beautiful essays, but now has no interest in doing good work. He just scribbles and hands in an error-filled piece of propaganda as quickly as he can. And I’m not about to ride him hard, under the circumstances. What am I supposed to say, “This is low-quality propaganda. Re-write it!”?

"Trickle down economics" was not a phrase used in the 1920s or 1930s. "Trickle down economics" being the pejorative for "supply side economics," and the Harding-Coolidge-Hoover economic policies were not known by that name. Then there's one other issue: Hoover was closer to FDR on economic issues than he was to Coolidge.

This most saddening story is what I used say is a God Da-n, low down, dirty shame.

Unfortunately this is the new norm. Our white children are constantly being indoctrinated into liberal ideology with one of it's chief achievements to be the extinction of the white gene pool/race via both low white birth production and mulattoism via miscegenation.

Clearly we non-apostate, non-liberal whites must begin in earnest mulling the possible manifestation of a new White Homeland.

We cannot allow ourselves to be bullied into silence. We need to remove ourselves from this liberal ideology insanity, and as soon as possible.

It should be obvious that our white children are now going to be made to feel shame for having white babies. This is an outrageous abomination of nature.

If we do not forge a new White Homeland, the liberals will herd us whites into extinction.

Liberalism is the iceberg targeting the Titanic.

From the Sanctuary, I'm PDK: Thank you.

NYC public school too? Mine at least has a minimal homework, so he is not wasting his time with this garbage at home. Time to start scouting Catholic schools....

Education draws in all types of people with an interest in brainwashing the upcoming generation. Kids usually have to do most of their meaningful reading on their own; they won't get it at school. Learning early on how to spot the propaganda is good practice for youth; they wise up sooner.
