NEA: We Turn Young Minds into Mush

In 1958 former FBI Agent Cleon Skousen (1913 – 2006) wrote the “The Naked Communist“. It contains a distillation of more than one hundred books and treatises–many of them written by Communist authors. It presents the Communist in his true native elements, stripped of propaganda and pretense. Hence, the title, “The Naked Communist”. Cleon Skousen’s work was so informative, insightful, and accurate that five years later on January 10th, 1963 his complete list of communist goals contained within “The Naked Communist” was read into the Congressional Record. Cleon Skousen listed 45 “communist goals” in his book. Today, all 45 have basically been accomplished. Here are just a couple from 1958:

#25.  Break  down  cultural  standards  of  morality  by promoting  pornography  and  obscenity  in  books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.

#26.  Present  homosexuality,  degeneracy  and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.”

#27.  Infiltrate  the  churches  and  replace  revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize  the  need  for  intellectual  maturity  which does not need a “religious crutch.”

#28.  Eliminate  prayer  or  any  phase  of  religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

#29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations
on a world-wide basis.

#30. Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

#31.  Belittle  all  forms  of  American  culture  and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground  that  it  was  only  a  minor  part  of  “the  big
picture.”  Give  more  emphasis  to  Russian  history since the Communists took over.

#17.  Get  control  of  the  schools.  Use  them  as transmission  belts  for  socialism  and  current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

Children are ALWAYS the first targets of anyone who wants to bring down a “system”. Communist Vladimir Lenin (1870-1924) who founded the Soviet Union said:

“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”

John Dewey (1859-1952) is the “father of American education” system and was a Fabian Socialist. Here is one of John Dewey’s most famous quotes which perfectly sums up his enlightened educational philosophy:

“There is no God and no soul. Hence, there are no needs for the props and traditional religion. With dogma and creed excluded, then immutable (unchangeable) truth is also dead and buried. There is no room for fixed, natural law, or permanent moral absolutes.” – John Dewey, The New Republic, December 5, 1928

That folks is “post-modernism“. The public schools in America today are not teaching children how to use basic reasoning processes, or logic, or about absolute truth, or the actual data of history, science, and mathematics. What they are teaching is “tolerance”, “diversity”, “globalism”, “feminism”, “sexual education”, and “multiculturalism” which is all part of “cultural Marxism” – more commonly known as political correctness. If you visit a classroom today you will most likely not see any independent desks. Instead, you will see that the desks are arranged in a circle, or in small groups or clusters. That is because the National Education Association wants the State’s children to be dumbed down to think as part of the “collective” and to develop a “dependency mindset”. The NEA does NOT want children to think independently or (heaven forbid) develop an “independent mindset”. In fact, the NEA has passed many resolutions stating that “public education” MUST begin “at birth”. Not surprisingly, the Communist Manifesto written in 1888 by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels suggested the exact same thing:

“Do you charge us with wanting to stop the exploitation [education and upbringing] of children by their parents? To this crime we plead guilty.”

In 1970 Raymond Houghton of the NEA wrote:

“…absolute behavior control is imminent…. The critical point of behavior control, in effect, is sneaking up on mankind without his self-conscious realization that a crisis is at hand. Man will… never self-consciously know that it has happened.”

At the 1989 Governor’s Conference on Education in Kansas, Dr. Shirley McCune, then head of the Mid-Continent Regional Educational Laboratory, summarized their revolutionary public de-education policies in her keynote speech:

“The revolution… in curriculum is that we no longer are teaching facts to children…. We no longer see the teaching of facts and information as the primary outcome of education.”

In 1988 Donald A. Cowan, president emeritus of the University of Dallas raised the rhetorical question, “What will take the place of logic, fact and analysis in the coming age?” Listen to his very revealing answer:

“The central way of thought for this new era will be imagination…. Imagination will be the active, creative agent of culture, transforming brute materials to a higher, more knowable state.”

And why is the NEA doing this this with our children? Respected researcher and Christian author of “Brave New SchoolsBerit Kjos explains:

“It’s easy to see why visionary change agents would prefer to inspire the imagination rather than teach facts and logic. Unlike facts and convictions, the imagination can easily be manipulated… Eventually, most students become conditioned to see everything through the new politically correct mental filter. The sight of an old social symbol (i.e. flag) or the sound of an word they have learned to hate (pastor, evil, capitalism, etc.) can now trigger emotional reactions that cannot be resolved with facts and logic.” - Brainwashing in America

In summary, the State wants sheeple, not people. Today, the public schools are basically nothing more then Government sponsored Communist re-education camps. If you still don’t believe me then just watch the following video where groups of teenagers, at what appears to be a posh Washington State high school, are asked some super tough civic questions like: “What countries border the United States?”, “Who is our Vice President?,” and “How many States are there?”:


I know the above video survey is not scientific, but the answers given by the students are extremely common today even among adults who have also received a public de-education. Christian parents MUST either home-school your children, send them to a private school, or somehow counter the secular humanist brainwashing that will be pumped into their heads seven hours a day for thirteen years straight (not including college).

Jesus loves children so much, I can’t even begin to imagine what he thinks of the folks at the National Education Association who are purposely hurting children for the States gain, but the time Jesus gathered the children around Himself certainly does come to mind:

“Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!” – Matthew 18:4-7

To learn more about the NEA and how to fight them and protect your kids, join the Eagle Forum which was founded by Phyllis Schlafly who has been a strong leader of the pro-family movement since 1972.

May the Lord protect you and yours.

Have a blessed day!
