Fairfax County middle school student Hal Beaulieu hopped up from his lunch table one day a few months ago, sat next to his girlfriend and slipped his arm around her shoulder. That landed him a trip to the school office.If this rule seems strange to you, as it does to me - well, I think it portends the future in government schools. Why not destroy the natural response of touching? It will further tamp down any spirit likely to blossom into genuine feelings for another human being.
Among his crimes: hugging.
Kilmer Middle School seventh-grader Hal Beaulieu and his father, Henri, say the no-touching rule at Kilmer Middle School is too strict. Hal got in trouble for hugging a girl.
All touching -- not only fighting or inappropriate touching -- is against the rules at Kilmer Middle School in Vienna. Hand-holding, handshakes and high-fives? Banned. The rule has been conveyed to students this way: "NO PHYSICAL CONTACT!!!!!"
School officials say the rule helps keep crowded hallways and lunchrooms safe and orderly, and ensures that all students are comfortable. But Hal, 13, and his parents think the school's hands-off approach goes too far, and they are lobbying for a change.
"I think hugging is a good thing," said Hal, a seventh-grader, a few days before the end of the school year. "I put my arm around her. It was like for 15 seconds. I didn't think it would be a big deal."
After all, the goal of government schools is to produce cookie-cutter drones who are unable to think for themselves, and government school policies will steam-roll over anyone in their delusional slavishness to the intolerant, socialistic goals of the NEA.
One of the chief criticisms of homeschooling our children has always been, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, that homeschooled children will not be able to socialize with the community at large and their peers, who are being trained in government schools. Actually, the opposite appears to be closer to the truth. I believe what we are witnessing here, as it happens in Virginia - where a lot of weird things go on in the name of education and diversity - is the logical extension of "diversity", a concept antithetical to true freedom. It is my hope that Americans will one day be able to look back on such episodes in dismayed remembrance of what can happen when a totalitarian ideology is given full reign to display its stupidity.
Educator and author Carl Sterling Parnell, Ed.D says in his book:
From Schoolhouse to Courthouse: Exposing America's New Terror From Within
Watch out, America! Concerned citizens must begin a united effort to fight back against the NEA and its diabolical plot to spread socialism throughout our great democratic nation through the impressionable minds of our children.
If concerned citizens are to fight against the tyranny of the National Education Association, they must gain more insight into what the goals of the NEA are. Their documented goals are:
1. "Destroy capitalism (freedom).
2. Promote dialectical materialism.
3. Eliminate God from all thinking and loyalty.
4. Eliminate loyalty to family.
5. Create social chaos to destroy traditional American society.
6. Indoctrinate children with humanist agenda for world socialist government.
7. Assure children cannot read reason or learn history.
8. Change society in preparation for a socialist world government-global governance.
9. Increase union membership and political power.
10. Increase political Democratic Party dependence on NEA.
11. Stop school vouchers.
12. Regulate private, home schooling, and charter schools.
13. Destroy the political right."
As is evident, the "E" in the National Education Association's abbreviation does not truly mean "education." Instead, it should actually represent the word "extreme." The NEA should be considered to be a leftist, extremist organization. Each year at their summer convention the NEA proposes many resolutions that demand unbelievable requests for Americans to accept. The National Education Association is very hostile toward parents who choose to place their children in private schools or home schools. It is very vehement toward "deleterious programs," such as privatization of schools, tax credits, and vouchers. The NEA is very intolerant toward groups and people who are against one of its main objectives-the promotion of a gay-lesbian sexual orientation. This is the reason it wants diversity-based curricula to be used in many classes, such as sex education, Family-life education, and AIDS education. However, the NEA supports another new program that is even scarier than the diversity issue. Now it wants to include programs in public schools for children from birth to age eight.
Basically, the NEA wants our children in public schools in order to instill the gay-lesbian tendencies into our children's minds. Also, it would give the NEA longer to brainwash our children. What a horrendous disaster this would be. Imagine having your new-born child in public schools being watched and taught by socialists, communists, humanists, New Agers and/or teachers with deviate sexual behavior. What would your child be learning in his/her formative years? How would you react to government-mandated directives to bring your new-born child to an ungodly learning environment? God forbid that this new program gets approved!
In order to fight back, Americans must be informed, angry, and determined to take back the schools from the government, which means to do us irreparable harm through our children. I have much more information on the NEA in a previous post, which goes into a more detailed analysis on the NEA and its goals. Phyllis Schlafly, who has waged a tireless war, is another good source for exposing the NEA agenda. More books on the take-over of the educational process, going back to Rockefeller and the Leipsig connection.
When all is said and done, the socialist's policies will fail, as they have always failed. The question in my mind is: will Democracy fail, too?
