"[M]uch of the current offerings published recently aren’t about helping children see themselves in a book but indoctrinating children into a particular political and ideological persuasion. The message being sent to children is that all of the world’s ills can be fixed if they turn to activism. No child is too young to start."

    Step one, take over the humanities
    Step two, indoctrinate the children.
    Step three, lower the voting age

      Somewhere between Step One and Step Three:

      Infiltrate Business, Engineering, Law, Medicine, and the basic Sciences.

        That is done by infiltrating HR departments (via the humanities) and installing their intolerant “trust and safety” divisions. Follow the party line or get constantly harassed and let go. An effective method for creating dependency and cowards that bend their knee to power hungry authority.

          The nest where the eggs of this infestation are hatched is in the College of Education, where new school teachers are filtered and programmed, and school and university administrators earn their PhDs in Education Administration.

          The latter then are in a position to spread their anti-rational nihilism across the curriculum.

          Today, it is so bad that physicians are chemically sterilizing children and then mutilating their genitals, in flagrant violation of their Hippocratic Oaths.

          As for the Management Department, that was an easy victory; Management and Sociology professors publish in the same journals. Management majors can push their agendas from the HR departments of organizations and threaten the careers of all who do not submit.

    My wife is a preschool teacher and we go to the local library children’s section often.
    The books are very leftists. I even brought a book up to the librarian The was praising chairman Mao as a great world leader.I asked her if she knew Mao had murdered 60,000,000 of his people. She just shrugged.
    Speaking of Library’s in many cities Tranny’s are volunteering to do children’s book readings in Pubic libraries. Just saw a photo of a tranny dressed as Baphomet for a Halloween children’s book reading at a libtprary.

      There's a picture out there of a tranny pulling a Sharon Stone on a group of very young children.

        Not intentional I am sure.
        Of course it’s never too early to cause cognitive dissonance.

            Thank you for the warning. I surprisingly will not click. I appreciate your posting it though.
            I know what these evil satanists promote, it is mentally ill gender confused “victims” the trannies .pushed on society to normalize a disfunction. The purpose likely to get people to Ignore the reality and get emotionally twisted and manipulated.
            Sympathy for the devil so to speak . Or to try to get “ discriminated” against and win a settlement from some perverted judges courtroom.

    This whole thing describes a melding of "Fahrenheit 451" and an abortion clinic to create a beast to turn loose on our kids. If they can't kill the children physically, they'll do it mentally.

    It is the next phase of the war to restrict free speech as described in the book "The Language Police" by Diane Ravitch and then replace it with the whatever the Ministry of Propaganda desires, "1984" style.

    Me dino is inspired! Now I know how to write stuff for children in order to find a promoting agent who can get me published in this day and time.
    Let's see, let's do a little experimenting here~~

    Comrades Jack and Jill went up the hill to steal one bucket above their quota of water.
    Beset by the People's hounds, Jack tumbled down to break (his) crown.
    Now chased by the People's hounds, Jill now all bloody came running after.
    Jill did not get away that wonderful day.
    Released from their leashes, the hounds tore
    (her) to pieces.
    Power to the People!
    The End

    *(figure out to do with the gender pronouns later)
    Note--calling meself "me dino" and "I" may be gender free but not all that inclusive with assimilation into the collective.
    Whoa! Meself? Silly dino!
    Note: Maybe silly dino should call silly dino a silly dino. Ha! Wrote that sentence without pronouns! Good work!
    Also noted is more work required for the story to obtain any hope of publication.

    This reminds me of Ayn Rand's "Anthem". Where they start indoctrination at a very young age. I wonder if G. Soros and Bloomberg are funding their agenda though schools and libraries.

    NOTE on conservative movies - you have to see them the first weekend!! Two reasons: 1) it may not be around long and 2) good attendance keeps it in the theater.

    No Safe Spaces is an important movie, and should be seen by as many as possible. I saw a rough cut of it at CPAC (even have a 'No Safe Spaces' bag). I enjoyed it very much.

    I have done the 'demand' thing, and have alerts on Fandango too. I want to get people to it too, so I am 'keeping a sharp eye' out for it.

    Scott, have you thought of trying to get college organizations (e.g. YAL, YAF, SFL, FIRE, TPUSA, Federalist Society) to promote it or even have a showing on campus and/or rent a theater for a night?

    I'm in Boston - any chance Alan Dershowicz (in the movie), or maybe even Harvey Silverglate (founder of FIRE) might attend a showing of it - a panel discussion before/after?

    Nothing new in this.

    We have known it for decades.

    It is a creeping change, drip by drip, carefully implemented so people won't realize what is going on until it is done.

    The process took a boost from the 8 years under Obama. The damage has been done and the current war between the parties is a clear indication of the determination of the left to push it to the conclusion at any cost.

      Yes, there is nothing new in this, but it still snuck up on virtually everyone, nonetheless.

      It is a non-linear process, like an algae bloom that doubles in size every week.

      At first, it is a tiny speck that escapes notice. A week later, it is still too small to bother anyone. Some weeks later, it is a small patch. Eventually, it covers the pond and chokes the life out of it.

      Even a month before this happens, the algae still covers only a bit more than 5% of the surface, and anyone who complains is branded a Chicken Little.

      Based on what the author of the article above writes, as well as other similar articles that I have seen over the past year, this is what has happened with the sexualization and indoctrination of children.

      It used to be that we laughed as these silly anti-rational nihilists. Later, we got annoyed when the defended Bill Clinton's rapes and Barack Obama's numerous scandals. Today, they are chemically sterilizing children and mutilating their genitals, while we stand with our mouths hanging open in disbelief.

      What? Ayn Rand wasn't explicit enough, when she sounded the alarm a half-century ago?

        I fully agree with you and the description of the kinetics of the "process".

        That's what I was alluding to in my reply.

        The reason it succeeds is what I was also pointing out, that the conversion process is slow. Decades by decades, which is why it is so devastatingly dangerous. People don't realize what the end goal is and take the incremental changes as the change of times, not paying much attention. Only those familiar with the process of conditioning know where it leads to.

        And yes, we are not doing anything to stop it. The only means appears to be elections and even then many don't even show up to have their voice heard.

          My hope is that this is an epidemic that will burn itself out. Even if it is temporary—like the Black Plague and the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918—the magnitude of its devastation is absolutely tragic.
