America’s kids, the product of an obscenely well-funded school system, rank last in the developed world in reading, writing, and math, making homegrown stupidity a far more pressing problem in modern-day America than homegrown terrorism.
Yet conservatives have continued to insist, throughout the COVID lockdowns and quarantines, that kids are missing out on an education.
Over the last few months, as COVID brought classrooms into American homes, parents learned that their children are being taught Critical Race Theory (i.e., Whites are evil; Blacks are pathetic) and magical thinking about gender, as well as being forced to wear masks that don’t protect against disease, but do interfere with children’s health, learning, and socialization. Their vigorous complaints saw the National School Board Association suggest they’re “domestic terrorists” and Merrick Garland answer the call. We learned, too, that Merrick Garland’s son-in-law, through his company, Panorama Education, sells CRT materials to public schools. And yesterday, it turned out that Panorama is also spreading material calling Trump and his supporters “white supremacists.”

Twenty states are suing the Biden administration to stop new regulations governing sex and gender discrimination in schools, calling the rules sweeping inventions of laws outside the constitutional process.
Thought control must start with children at the earliest possible age. The Hitler Youth, the Balilla, and the Young Pioneers all served this purpose. Hence, the educational system within the totalitarian regime must be transformed into an institution of indoctrination and training in the service of “making” communists or fascists or progressives.
Based in the U.S., the Asia Society describes its mission as “preparing Asians and Americans for a shared future” and is favored by current and former high-level Chinese Communist Party officials.
