The ‘Choice’ the Left Hates

In Education, Front Page by Allen West

The progressive socialist left has done a brilliant job restructuring language around a single word, “choice.” They have rather successfully redefined what that word means, as it relates to their ideological agenda. We can not debate that the left is very comfortable framing the murder of unborn babies, and now up to birth, as “choice.”

However, when it comes to the issue of school choice, the left in America — heavily supported by teacher’s unions — will fight you to the death.


Why does the left have such an animus about parents making the best education choices for their children . . . as my mom and dad did for me? These delusional leftists cheered, celebrated Gov. Cuomo in New York signing into law an infanticide bill. And, as I have stated, Dr. Kermit Gosnell is imprisoned for doing to three babies, what Cuomo signed into law, and Virginia Gov. Northam vocally supported.

But, try to champion school choice, vouchers, anything that opposes government-run schools, and you will face intense opposition. Shall I remind you that in April 2009, it was Barack Obama who canceled the DC Opportunity Scholarship (school voucher) Program for deserving young minority students? Yep, Ol’ Barry Soetoro did that, kicked out little black kids, just as his own kids traipsed right into the prestigious Sidwell Friends School. Such hypocrisy.

The goal of the left is not to educate our children, the ones that they allow to be born, they want to indoctrinate our children. That is just the case in New Jersey. As reported by North Jersey:

“New Jersey schools will teach LGBT history under a new state law, but what does that mean for the classroom? That may depend on where you live. The law requires that middle and high school students learn about the social, political and economic contributions of LBGT [sic] individuals, but leaves it up to local districts to determine how to teach those lessons. School boards have to update social studies standards — a process that will unfold locally in hundreds of school districts — in time for the 2020-21 school year.

“I envision each board of education will set policy or set a foundation for the curriculum that is age-appropriate, and I don’t think that’s difficult,” said Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle, D-Englewood, one of the primary sponsors of the legislation. 

Huttle offered examples of potential lessons: books about children with two moms or dads, or lessons on the achievements of leaders like Barbra “Babs” Siperstein, the transgender activist from Jersey City who died Feb. 3. 

“When looking at someone like Babs, or Harvey Milk, or the Stonewall riots, these materials are readily available to implement and to teach students, for students to understand that there are differences,” Huttle said.

New Jersey is the second state, after California, to require that contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals be taught in public schools.

The law, which Gov. Phil Murphy signed Jan. 31, does not apply to private schools. It also requires that schools teach about people with disabilities.

Civil rights and advocacy groups hailed the measure, saying it would give students a fuller picture of U.S. history while fostering respect and understanding. But school boards may face resistance in communities where parents believe LGBT issues are sensitive and should be discussed in the home.

Pervasive anti-gay sentiment could also cast a shadow over the process — yet that kind of sentiment is precisely why this kind of education is needed, advocates say.”

Notice the adept use of language in this article, any resistance to this policy mandate is deemed “anti-gay sentiment.” In other words, comply or be demonized, denigrated, and disparaged. If you just want your child to get an education, not an ideological indoctrination, the State, government, targets you.

Let us not forget the high school French teacher in Virginia who was unanimously voted to be fired by the local school board because he refused to address a female student in her preferred pronoun. This is not about education, folks, this is about forcing a lifestyle upon others.  I would rather our kids just learn history, civics, and not have this heavily lobbied agenda shoved down into their brains. Doggone, too bad our Founding Fathers and Mothers were not LGBT, then we’d be guaranteed that our Declaration of Independence and Constitution would be taught in our schools.

How interesting it is that people will say that the government needs to stay out of the bedroom, but then the government dictates instruction in government schools based upon what people do in the bedroom?

Now you see why the left is against any alternative to government-run, public schools? Now you know and understand why one of the planks in Karl Marx’s communist manifesto was state-run education? I pray that you understand this is why Vladimir Lenin once stated, “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”

Hey folks, I don’t make this stuff up, and, as the article states, California and New Jersey are implementing this mandate. Therefore, you can expect more progressive socialist states to do the same, and bet, this will be introduced in some conservative state legislatures, somewhere, as a test. There is nothing that the progressive socialist left in America does by coincidence. This is a well-planned strategy and a coordinated attack to do as Barack Obama stated, fundamentally transform the United States of America.

Funny thing, the left in America recently went into another of their apoplectic meltdowns over the State of Indiana implementing Biblical studies in public schools. Yes, you heard the usual rantings about separation of church and state. Sad, and true, but the reality is if we had better teaching, education, of our kids we would come to know the true intent of Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptist Convention on the subject. The whole crux of the issue was to prevent the government from suppressing religious freedom . . . and that is what happened to the high school teacher in Virginia.

The religion of the left has become LGBT, climate change, and wealth redistribution — socialism — and they aim to impart those values upon our children.

Ya gonna let them win?
