Indoctrination by crayon
A Florida father just found the following "lesson" written in his four-year-old son's hand. It was written in several different colors of crayon and stuffed into his backpack:
"I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure."
Originally the Stalinist running the class had him write "safer and more secure," but evidently she decided that both safety and security were too high a bar for the sacrifice of constitutional rights.
Several months ago, the kids heard a presentation from a local attorney about the Bill of Rights, and once he left, Comrade Cheryl Sabb decided it was time for her kids to memorize the real Bill of Rights, which looks more like a take-out menu. Appropriate scrawled in crayon, it rested in the little boy's backpack until his father discovered it.
Needless to say, this is the polar opposite of the American concept of rights. They're not bargaining chips to be pumped into the State's vending machine of goodies. A properly run government secures your safety without demanding rights in return. And those rights are not subject to theft by people who decide our "safety and security" need a little upgrade, and it would be a lot easier to install if we stopped running around and exercising our liberties so much.
Four. Years. Old. We need to get our kids away from these whack job indoctrination squads. The totalitarian Left definitely understands the importance of getting to them early.
