Socialism and Marxism have taken over public education and our Colleges and Universities. I know there are great teachers out there. Christian teachers trying to speak of God and Jesus when they can without getting fired.
But in a public elementary school in Indiana students recently were sent home with a letter from the teacher telling the parents that their children cannot talk about God, Jesus Christ, or the devil inside their classroom.
Winston Churchill aptly described socialism as “a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue [being] the equal sharing of misery.” As economist Thomas Sowell put it, “socialism” in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.”

The destruction of the US education system began with leading Marxist theorist Georg Lukacs book History and Class Consciousness. Lukacs believed that for a new Marxist culture to emerge, the existing culture had to be destroyed. He said, “I saw the revolutionary destruction of society at the one and only solution to the cultural contradictions or the epoch”, and “Such a worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values and creation of new ones by the revolutionaries”.
College students and certainly not a kindergartener today know little, if anything about the cataclysmic movement in China known as the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. It began in 1966 before all of them (and even a great number of their professors) were born. This massive national crusade, instigated by Chairman Mao Zedong, was intended to create a pure communist man and woman, devoid of the constraints of materialism and personal ambition.
It started with the closing of the schools and the re-education of intellectuals and the bourgeoisie and ended up with years of incredible violence, taking millions of lives. The actual statistics are still a state secret, but a recent biography of Mao states “at least 3 million people died violent deaths and post-Mao leaders acknowledged that 100 million people, one-ninth of the entire population, suffered in one way or another.”
Communist Propaganda was spread through loud-speakers and placed on billboards. If you dared to question their Cultural correctness you were singled out and learned not to speak up. Sound familiar? It is amazing to me on Facebook and Social media if you post a video of cats being silly or some crude comedian how many shares it gets. But my friends will not repost how Socialism is rooted in education, civil rights movement, feminism. Why is this? Because they are afraid of the backlash.
The cultural revolution rooted in European ideas from the Frankfort School in Germany has its roots in Columbia University. But Universities and Colleges across the US quickly were taken over by the Socialist mantra for fear of being singled out. What you now have is Clemson University setting a policy that it is “racist” to tell a student they are late. The University of Missouri President recently being forced to resign because someone drew a swastika in a bathroom and it offended someone. The University of Michigan has a Student Socialist Union as do most other large Universities. And no one would doubt or contradict that University of California at Berkeley is the Kremlin of US Universities (sorry some Ivy League schools might object).
For the past 5 decades institutions of higher learning have replaced History especially US History with multicultural studies, taken over with cultural socialism and coddled students with “safe spaces”. The graduates that they produced went on to become lawyers and set up ground for Socialism. And many of them became High School teachers and Socialism, multiculturalism, liberal ideology was taught in High Schools.
This brings us back to the kindergarten teacher in Indiana telling parents their children cannot talk about God and Jesus Christ. Socialism in our schools has come full circle all the way to kindergarten. Just a couple of weeks ago I posted on a California kindergarten teacher reading a book and teaching on transgender because one of the students was going to have a reveal. How long before the Socialist reach pre-school programs?
