As you know, theme of The Gathering Storm is the use of using Pre-Word War II fascist tactics by Islamists to soften up the clueless infidel before the bullets and missiles start flying in the coming war. One of the fascists of Germany and Japan is the tactic of indoctrinating children.
Itâ€™s an insidious and disgusting process that teaches young minds to disregard the current cultural standards and embrace new ones. As Hitler said, â€œHow to achieve the moral breakdown of the enemy before the war has started â€“ that is the problem that interests me.â€
Almost a year ago, I wrote a post on an article entitled The Nazi Model for Outcome-Based Education. It bares an eerie resemblance to what is going on in our educational system today. The article concerns itself with the concept of national mastery learning and how it will create human puppets, not independent thinkers.
Now hereâ€™s the disgusting part. Think about what the Left has done and what the liberal educational institutions and MSM have supported. Here they are.
TRANSFORM THE WORLD BY CHANGING THE CHILDREN
Change the children first: “The Nazi leadership appreciated the difficulty of indoctrinating the older generation…. They were all the more determined to mold the new generation along Nazi lines. As the leader of the Nazi Teacher’s League, Hans Schemm, put it: ‘Those who have the youth on their side control the future.’” Create world-class citizen: “…create a new type of student…”
TEACH POLITICALLY CORRECT BELIEFS AND VALUES
Condition students for the new social and economic order: “German youth must no longer… be confronted with the choice of whether it wishes to grow up in a spirit of materialism or idealism, of racism or internationalism, of religious or godlessness, but it must be consciously shaped according to principles which are recognized as correct…according to the principles of the ideology of National Socialism.”
ESTABLISH AN OUTCOME-BASED EDUCATION SYSTEM
Restructure schools and nationalize tests and standards: “the regime endeavored to assert its control over the education system through reorganization and centralization…” Affective (feeling-centered, attitudinal), not cognitive, learning earns the graduation certificate. (Liberal feel â€“ Conservatives think.)
IMPLEMENT MASTERY LEARNING
Condition students to become social servants, not individuals–but tell the public the opposite: “‘…the principal task of the school is the education of youth in the service of … the State in the National Socialist spirit.’ This made clear the Nazi’s determination to shift the focus of education away from the needs of the individual and the development of his potential as a human being to the requirements of the community of nation and State, of which the individual was a member and to which he must subordinate himself.”
Politically correct standards for right and wrong: “Munich professors [were warned]: ‘From now on it is not up to you to decide whether or not something is true, but whether it is in the interest of the national Socialist Revolution.” (Our current education system at work) Set affective, not cognitive, goals (outcomes): “The more enthusiastic they get, the easier are the exams and the sooner they will get a position …. The new generation has never had much use for education and reading. Now nothing is demanded of them; on the contrary, knowledge is publicly condemned.” Forget facts. Teach “right” attitudes or “character” through feel-good experiences. in secondary schools, were alienated by the crudity of its indoctrination.”
INFUSE NEW VALUES THROUGH “REAL LIFE” LEARNING
Create new beliefs and values through multicultural and global education: “New courses were introduced in such fields as racial studies, eugenics, and defense studies and there was a new emphasis on pre-history… Law and political science courses were adapted to fit in with the changes introduced by the regime.”
New content: “…in addition to controlling and indoctrinating the teaching profession, reorganizing the education system and establishing new elite schools, the regime sought to influence youth through the content of what was taught in schools.” “Relevance” and historical revision: “The course of history must not appear to our young people as a chronicle which strings events together indiscriminately, but, as in a play, only the important events, those which have a major impact on life, should be portrayed.”
First indoctrinate teachers: “The real task of the NSLB is to create the new German educator in the spirit of National Socialism. It is being carried out with the same methods with which the movement has conquered the whole nation: indoctrination and propaganda.” Certify compliant teachers. “The Nazi party… realized they could do little with the existing professors if they outwardly conformed. They concentrated, therefore, on trying to transform the profession by controlling entry and promotion within it through process of political indoctrination….”
SILENCE THE OPPOSITION
Block the negative influence of parents and traditional culture: “…these boys join our organization at the age of ten…four years later, they move from the Jungvolk to Hitler Youth and there we keep them for another four years. And then we are even less prepared to give them back into the hands of those who create our class and status barriers…” Punish parents who protect their children from state indoctrination: “A legal guardian will be liable to a fine up to 150 RM or to imprisonment, if he deliberately contravenes the stipulation #9 of this decree (registration for Hitler Youth).” Vouchers and Christian schools: “Private schools and denominational schools gradually succumbed to various pressures: the loss of government subsidies or tax concessions….”
Now, letâ€™s look how the Islamists have recently used this strategy.
A San Diego school adjusts its schedule to accommodate Muslim worship.
Like a growing number of school districts around the country, San Diego’s is changing its ways to meet the needs of its Islamic students. Here, a controversy with constitutional overtones erupted: In accommodating Muslim students, is the school unfairly promoting religion? (Also the school is now offering classes in Arabic, no longer serves pork and other foods which conflict with fundamental Muslims diet restrictions. In addition, single gender classes for girls have been set up there.)
The school’s policy “presumes that Christians are less religious and less inspired to worship and praise the Lord and come together,” says Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute. He is asking the school district to set up special rooms where Christians can pray, too.
The ACLU will squeal like stuffed pig if special rooms are set aside for Christians. But they might not have to worry. Muslim prayer is allowed in San Diego BUT Christian prayer is denied in Bayonne.
The Bayonne High School graduation ceremonies on July 20 were marred by a controversy over the inclusion of a prayer in this yearâ€™s Valedictory Address. Traditionally, the top student of the graduating class speaks during the ceremonies, often expressing feelings about the past and hopes for the future. But a few days before the June 20 ceremonies, Jeremy Jerschina – this yearâ€™s valedictorian – was asked to submit his speech for review. The speech ended with a prayer to God, which was deemed unacceptable by school officials.
Seventh-graders at a San Francisco-area school were required, even after 9/11, to “become Muslims” for two full weeks as part of California’s world history curriculum. This included reciting the Muslim profession of faith — “Allah is the only true God and Muhammad is his messenger” — and chanting “Praise be to Allah” in response to teacher prompts.
And these examples from Jon Quixote World:
(Taxpayer-funded) Amhurst, NH middle school students engage in borderline dhimmitude: 7th-graders host Islamist night in order “to encourage participants to reach out and learn from people around the world, and to promote curiosity and cultural understanding,” complete with misogyny, veiled (& separated) girls; nametags warn “death for drug trafficking” (more pictures & details at LGF, here; more commentary at AtlasShrugs, here).
(Taxpayer-funded) Minnesota community college to install Muslim prayer preparation rooms, but prohibits any display or reference to Christmas during holiday season; Update: Same college and others across U.S. planning to install (or have already installed) Muslim-only facilities .
Controversy erupts in CA over Islamist (taxpayer-funded) grade school textbook that rewrites history, excoriates Jews, labels Muslims their “victims”; Same book yanked from Scottsdale, AZ schools for Islamist “indoctrination”
Of course, the opposition claims that this is just knee-jerk Islamophobia by right wing nuts like me. They don’t see it yet as a determined well planned strategy of the Islamist movement that was created and set in motion almost 100 years ago with the establishment of the Muslim Brotherhood and their ‘Project‘.
Finally, what I see as the ultimate capitulation of a once great nation and its education system to the destruction of their very own culture is the recent anouncement for Britain. Sir Winston Churchill axed from school history lessons.
Britainâ€™s cigar-chomping World War Two PM â€” famed for his two-finger victory salute â€” was removed from a list of figures secondary school children must learn about. Instead they will be taught about â€œrelevantâ€ issues such as global warming and drug dangers. The decision to axe Churchill is part of a major shake-up aimed at dragging the national curriculum into the 21st century, it was claimed last night.
Or is it being dragged into the 7th by the Leftists wand their â€˜universalâ€™ approach to education. As Hitler said, â€œUniversal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction.â€
