Indoctrination by the book

  • Follow Editorials

If you lie down with dogs, you rise with fleas, the old proverb goes.

President Obama must be itching like crazy over his federal appointments -- especially given the recent revelations about his safe-schools czar.

Keith Jennings is the assistant deputy secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education. Part of his formative past includes founding and leading an organization that appears to encourage underage sex.

Does that sound like someone you want to help steer federal education policy?

The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network says it seeks to foster acceptance of homosexual pupils in schools and to clamp down on bullying. But it recommends books to kids that mark a dangerous step -- really, a giant leap -- toward hypersexualizing schoolchildren.

Some of the books on the GLSEN reading list detail supposedly consensual sexual encounters between children and much older adults, and some incidents between kids as young as 6. To go into further detail would be to tread into territory that a reader shouldn't be able to stomach.

There can be a fine line between education and indoctrination. But not in this case. This kind of repulsive filth shouldn't be shopped around to schoolchildren.

And America's safe-schools czar headed the organization that spreads this list.

It seems as if every government czar Obama tries to appoint comes equipped with a second, outrageously controversial shoe ready to be dropped. A nominee can have this qualification or that qualification.

But. Too often there's a big "but."

Carol Browner, Obama's energy and climate czar, was a major player with a socialist group that advocated " 'global governance' and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change," according to The Washington Times .

Science czar John Holdren co-authored a textbook in the 1970s that floated the ideas of forced abortion and mass sterilization.

Mark Lloyd, Obama's FCC diversity czar, was a fellow at the liberal Center for American Progress, and has had conservative talk radio in his crosshairs for quite some time. He thinks Venezuela is a good example of media equity. You remember Venezuela -- its dictator has quashed the free reporting of news containing even a whiff of partisan dissent.

Urban-affairs czar Adolfo Carrion, the New York Daily News reported, reaped thousands in campaign funds from developers with government projects that slid through thanks to his political connections when he was borough president of the Bronx.

Not one of these people should have a place in helping guide our federal government.

Concerned.......Obama may not be that man, but he hired a czar who DOES support child molestation and forced abortion and sterilization. Would you knowingly hire someone like that? I know..........it's Bush's fault.

Lets not forget Van Jones,

Lets not forget Van Jones, Daschel etc that could not get confirmed because of tax problems or other issues. Jennings should not be allowed near children at all..He advised a high school student it was OK to continue a sexual relationship with an older man the boy had met in a train station!

In the words of kanye west "Obama doesn't care about people". He isn't for people. Period. He is for power and the subjugation of the masses.

Tigger, carcraft, and the

Tigger, carcraft, and the rest of you pathetics... Indoctrinated by the truth-stretching AUGUSTA CHRONICLE- of all publications. Have you miscreants forgotten the row of fascist thugs that the Bumbling Bush trotted out? How quick the non-thinkers forget... Seriously, Ryan.... Your truth-altering drivels know no bounds when it comes to ethics or the facts. You should be ashamed, very ashamed, but you're just as brain-washed as your (shrinking number of ) minions. Oh, they'll hoot and holler for 50-120 comments or so, and then wait for tomorrow to bring another distorted or bigoted jewel to feed their rage. Ryan, you and your rag should do Augusta a favor! Move to Columbia County where you belong and crow all you want about the great non-accomplishments of your party. While your boss gets the taxpayers of Richmond County to hand him a new toy to ruin in the T-Center, he still does not serve the public he resides in and is so willing to take tax dollars from. Ethos, Ryan! Conscience! Christian-thought! Get some while you're still a young man!!!!! It's never too late for you. Billy's spot may be long-reserved, but there is still a chance at redemption for you!

Pres. Bush was guilty of
Unpublished

Pres. Bush was guilty of knowing and taking money from Ken Lay, who he called 'ol "Kenny Boy" who ran Enron, which was a corrupted financial dark hole. After being caught and sentenced, Lay took his own life. Now THAT requires connecting the dots. Cheney had SECRET energy meetings, where no one has EVER come close to finding out who participated in those meetings. Then this WH opens the registry for all to see, and what happens, everything ever saw & heard is twisted into something negative. The article do not deserve a reponse.

Justus and Lobo go back to

Justus and Lobo go back to the old school of "well Bush.....". That is getting lame and very old. You do not excuse bad behavior by comparing it to another bad behavior. Hussein has surrounded himself with some people of very questionable character and who have a different mind set for this country than does the normal every day American Joe Schmo. To use the addage from the good old Reverand Wright "I went to his church for twenty years but did not know he preaced about ......." will not fly this time. Hussein has surrounded himself with communists, Marxists, Socialists, and people with ideas that are WAY FAR left than this country is comfortable with. That is all the article is stating, no more, no less.

President Obama's problem is

President Obama's problem is that he didn't vet his cabinet and quasi cabinet of czars in a thorough manner. These less than stellar individuals were huge mistakes to any objective person. What's interesting is the NeoMaos posting here, attack in a personal way whoever brings up the obvious. It's the Matthews, Olberman, Raddow pattern to avoid issues and attack viciously anyone who points out problems with the administration. Red Guards in an electronic way surrounding the house of anyone who questions the results of our NeoMao leader's policy.

Are ya'll really ready for unemployment to reach 25% on a national level? Are you ready for businesses of less than 500 employees to shut down? If not, you'd better think long and hard about it. This Healthcare bill will will do more harm than good!

I can't believe ole justus

I can't believe ole justus (an obvious product of social promotion and head start programs) got all the way through an entire post without saying "you know who". He did however say "the article do not deserve a response". He is entertaining on a daily basis....same material but always entertaining......

Having put up with the AC's

Having put up with the AC's crying wolf so many times about Obama (citizenship, radical Muslim, gangster, etc.), does this ludicrous opinion surprise anyone. How about something on Obama's historic imminent passage of health care reform. Nah, the right-wing only likes to scare people. That's why they got sent packing.

A Country Destroyed From

A Country Destroyed From Within! This Muslim president was voted into office by the majority of this country. Putting PC aside, don't you all realize that those majority that voted this president in already was and are living the wants of this president. They want no laws of any type, believe homosexual is beautiful, the taken of women of any age or for any reason is the teaching of a Muslim, the taken of money away from productive human to give to the giveme humans, the religious people are the infidels, the drive to teach all the new children in the ways of those majority (culture, religion, sex), and on and on. This is all been accomplished by the powers invested in our today president. Many poster has said many times, people living in the past are now extinct. So sorry to see a once great nation fall to it knees, so sorry.
