Alex Newman: Government to Re-Educate Kids of “Right-Wing” Parents

Government to Re-Educate Kids of “Right-Wing” Parents  “In other words, treating a daughter as a daughter and a son as a son is now considered harmful to children by the extremist regime ruling Germany.”

by Alex Newman

In what was seen by many observers as a throwback to evil ideas from Germany’s National Socialist (Nazi) days, German authorities helped publish a pamphlet advocating the re-education of children whose parents disagree with the regime’s official (and totally insane) ideology. Among the ideas that are verboten: opposition to “gender theory,” the “sexualization” of children, and mass immigration. So-called education must help combat “right-wing populism,” the document added.

Critics blasted the document’s instructions for using the language of children to detect thought crimes by parents. According to the brochure, parts of which were translated into English for an article by LifeSiteNews.com, parents with attitudes the state deems unacceptable can be sniffed out. In particular, they can be detected through the use of “seemingly harmless words which stem, however, from the jargon of the New (or Old) Right and which imply a deeply misanthropic attitude.”

The Orwellian propaganda also gives examples of warning signs that children may come from a “racist” or “right-wing” family. One involves a brother and sister who seem “especially obedient” and have no “so-called disciplinary problems.” The siblings in question also display “traditional gender roles,” with the sister wearing “dresses and braids” and learning “needlework” at home while the boy “is physically being strongly challenged and drilled.”

Another example involves a mother coming to school to complain that her son was dressed up as a girl and had his finger nails painted at school the previous day. The mother “declares that this has a bad influence upon her child; children should not be further confused; boys are boys, girls are girls.” Such attitudes are not allowed in today’s totalitarian Germany, it seems.

According to the document, “gender-stereotype parenting styles limit the manifold possibilities of children and [adversely] affect their development.” In other words, treating a daughter as a daughter and a son as a son is now considered harmful to children by the extremist regime ruling Germany. Another issue raised in the document is when parents complain about the “premature sexualization” of their children.

To deal with such situations, the document calls on the school brainwash the children with “diversity” propaganda and “children’s rights” ideology, holding that children have a right to be whatever gender they please. The teachers are also expected to “explain that gender diversity and tolerance are welcomed at the pre-school” and that children must be encouraged to “experiment with themselves.” The teachers are also supposed indoctrinate them with far-left political views.

The controversial brochure, which was funded by the German Ministry of Family Affairs and published by a tax-funded foundation, includes a lengthy forward by Family Affairs Minster Dr. Franziska Giffey. The dangerous left-wing extremist claims that children must be trained in a “democratic manner” and that education must be steered toward “children’s rights,” which is code from trampling on parental rights. Giffey also lashes out at the “significant increase of right-wing populist movements,” suggesting the regime’s indoctrination centers will be used shift the political system in a more totalitarian direction.

The tax-funded “foundation” that published the tax-funded brochure, known as the Amadeu Antonio Foundation, is led by a confessed spy for the barbaric Stasi, the infamous “intelligence” agency of the murderous communist regime that enslaved and terrorized East Germany. And so, more than a few critics highlighted the resemblance and parallels between the totalitarian ideology in the brochure and the the totalitarian ideology of the communist and National Socialist regimes in Germany.

Unfortunately, the disgusting hatred of families, faith, and freedom exhibited in the brochure is simply a local manifestation of a global movement — a totalitarian movement that has thoroughly infiltrated American education, too. But unlike in Germany, where Adolf Hitler’s ban on home education remains in place, American parents still have options. Now would be the time to exercise those options, before it is too late.

Gender Assignment?

Gender Assignment?

by Bill Lockwood

We have entered the fantasy world of Obama’s Alice in Wonderland in which nothing is as it seems. Not even basic scientific facts are “tolerated” in our diverse world of “political correctness”—let alone God’s Word. The only response left for thinking Americans is “Unbelievable!”

Take, for example, the new transgender policies enacted by Barack Obama via the Supreme Court. A recent eight-page letter from the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education tells school districts to be compliant with Title IX protections against sex discrimination by allowing students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the gender “they identify with.”

It matters not what God created in the womb (Psalm 139:13-16), or what medical science and common sense knows about an individual, be “it” male or female—Obama’s Government says: “A school may provide separate facilities on the basis of sex, but must allow transgender students access to such facilities consistent with their gender identity.” The government letter further states: “A school may not require transgender students to use facilities inconsistent with their gender identity or to use individual-user facilities when other students are not required to do so …”

But what exactly is “transgender?” How does the Obama Administration define it? “Transgender describes those individuals whose gender identity is different from the sex they were assigned at birth.” Further, the letter goes on to point out that “A transgender male is someone who identifies as male but was assigned the sex of female at birth; a transgender female is someone who identifies as female was but assigned the sex of male at birth.” Gender identity is “an individual’s internal sense of gender.” Science be hanged: How do you feel about yourself? What “assignment” made the doctor who delivered you?

What Have We Come To?

Imagine this. You and your wife are excited about the baby she is carrying in her womb. At five months of pregnancy the doctor, through modern technology, is able to determine the baby’s gender. Either the apple has a stem or it does not. Only two alternatives. But wait! That which you plainly SEE via the sonogram is not determinative of anything! The doctor only “assigns” a gender. Nothing scientific. Nothing natural. It is only an arbitrary “assignment” that is encoded on the birth certificate – “M” or “F”—which can be “changed.”

The same when the healthy child arrives. Baby boy or girl is the question. Blue or pink ribbons? You are excited to hold your baby girl. “Not so fast,” says Doctor Obama. The “boy” or “girl” question is unsettled! “We will,” promises Doctor Obama, “place female on the birth certificate. But it is only temporary.”

This is similar to having “an assignment” handed you as a graduate from Officer Training School in the Air Force. You might be “assigned” Luke AFB or Travis AFB or some other. But if you don’t like that “assignment” go get it changed. That will be difficult, if not impossible. But the Commander-in-chief will allow you to alter the “sex you identify with.” Unbelievable.

I wish to identify as a WWII decorated hero who landed on the beaches of Normandy. Shall I write my government and demand my Silver Star and Purple Heart medals? What about my Medal of Honor that is due me for heroism on the battlefield? Will President Obama hang it on my neck? After all, my “identity” is what my “internal sense” dictates—not what is reality.
