The National (Socialist) Education Association All-in for “Anti-Racism”

 

The National (Socialist) Education Association is all in for poisoning children’s minds with the racist doctrine of “anti-racism.” The largest K-12 teachers’ union celebrated multiple examples of teachers twisting their subjects, from music to Spanish, into hate and loathing injection systems at every grade level. At the same time, the NEA lied about their opposition, smearing parents and politicians as white supremacists. What should surprise no one is the open display of Marxist advocacy under this branch of cultural Marxism. Here they are in their own words, still available on the NEA website, and available forever on the internet archive Wayback Machine:

Consider this music teacher’s twisting of history, to bury Stalin’s (and her, and the NEA’s) murderous Marxism, playing the same trick Stalin’s allies here played in the 1930s and following.

For Franchesca Mejia, this means her students listen to musicians from around the world, exploring African spirituals, the Chinese Cultural Revolution, and the Syrian refugee crisis, among other topics.

Among other pieces, she pulls from the works of Dmitri Shostakovich—a 20th century Soviet composer and pianist who played during Joseph Stalin’s reign of terror.

“With Shostakovich, we talk about what it means to live in fear and how that fear is felt in the music,” she says. “Kids will say, ‘Wow, that’s terrifying.’ And I tell them, now imagine some of your Black friends living in fear.

“I’m utilizing music to really connect to emotion … to build an anti-racist curriculum.”

So, rather than teaching the truth of the Great Terror, she apparently celebrates the Chinese Cultural Revolution and clearly obscures real political terror, which the NEA acknowledges in the article but avoids in the classroom, with the lie of Black children in America being in fear of white children and adults.

Last year, some of Mejia’s students watched a concert lecture by the Austin Symphony Orchestra, where they discussed the well-known antisemitic, racist, and homophobic beliefs of 19th century German composer Richard Wagner. And when Sir Edward Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance, March No. 1 in D Major played, they discussed nationalism, patriotism, extremism, and racism.

“I go pretty hard and heavy when I can, because the world is shocking,” Mejia says. “I want them to understand that racism and its nuances go beyond the United States. It is a vast monster.”

So, she only finds racism in Western Civilization. China is not up for discussion, and communism is to be protected by misdirection. Further, the children will not get music and music theory, but leftist indoctrination draped in music. The indoctrination is completely in the open in other classes.

Brandon Morrison, a fifth-grade teacher in Guilford County, North Carolina, agrees. He wants his students to dig deeper into what they see in the world, including what’s taught in the classroom. He’s seen his share of curriculum that depicts the life of enslaved people as a “wonderful time on the plantation” or discusses how Africans “migrated” to the U.S.

I call liar, liar, pedal pushers on fire.

Morrison doesn’t shy away from big concepts, either. He talks to his students—in terms they can understand—about capitalism, racism, stolen land from Indigenous people, the driving forces behind societal systems, and more. His goal is to give his students information they can process, explore, and use to develop their own opinions and beliefs.

Lying again about students forming their own opinions and beliefs. It is clear that only one viewpoint is accepted in his class: Marxism partially masked as cultural Marxism. The NEA and every teacher who is a card carrying member must be challenged, questioned. There must be no more blather about teachers, Mom, and apple pie. They are not praiseworthy unless they are part of the real resistance, the liberty fifth column in the institutions captured by the left at the end of its long march.

    Our public schools have become indoctrination centers; nevermind academics, that’s not on the agenda. It is frustrating and discouraging to imagine the students’ world view when they come out of this as adults.

    It is a dark future they want for us. They think it is only for some, but racism and authoritarianism is a monster that swallows everything.

    The American Federation of Teachers is going down this road, too.
