Fourth Graders Compelled to Denounce Constitution in Crayon
If we don’t get education out of the hands of statists, we may as well disband the military, because within a generation there will be no liberty left to defend. The latest public school brainwashing outrage:
A father in Duval County, Florida has alleged that his son’s fourth-grade teacher instructed students to express — in crayon — their desire to trade rights guaranteed in the Constitution for a feeling of added security.
The concerned father, Aaron Harvey, says his son and other kids in his son’s class had to scribble: “I am willing to give up some of my constitution rights in order to be safer or more secure.”
The incident happened at some point during a civics lesson at Cedar Hills Elementary School in Jacksonville, Florida, reports First Coast News.
A few quotes come to mind:
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
— Benjamin Franklin
“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
— Vladimir Lenin
“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’”
— Adolf Hitler
When we let oligarchical collectivists take over education, we let them take over the country without firing a shot.
The fuming father noted that his 10-year-old son can’t possibly want to give up the rights he enjoys under the Constitution because he doesn’t fully understand the rights he enjoys in the first place.
Of course not. The conditioning has to start before the subject knows enough to resist it.
“I served in the military. I served to protect my family, my country, and that Constitution and everyone’s freedom,” Harvey added, according to WOKV.
We are moving past the point where there is still any use fighting liberty’s enemies overseas.
The assignment came to light when Amy Harvey happened to find it in her son’s backpack. As usual when caught in the act, the brainwashing miscreants backed away from their own wicked beliefs — this time even denying responsibility:
Officials for the Duval County Public Schools can’t seem to keep their story straight. Initially — hilariously — district officials allegedly assured Harvey that his son had undertaken the declaration to give up rights entirely on his own, with no encouragement from his teacher.
Entrusting a child’s education to Big Government and Big Unions borders on willful neglect.
