For Our Children’s Sake: It’s Time We Distinguish Between Education and Indoctrination

Written by Larry Usoff on April 30, 2018

The time has come, the walrus said, to speak of many things…of shoes, and ships, and sealing-wax, of cabbages and kings. The time has indeed come, and maybe passed, when we should be speaking about things, but not those mentioned. Let us then talk about things that are in the news, but perhaps not the way most Americans get the news. In large part, the media has been taken over and has morphed into a propaganda ministry for the people who are mightily struggling against the duly-elected President. Am I bothered by this apparent surrender of the truth? You bet your bippy I am!

There is a “movement” in America today and, if it is carried to its ultimate goal and conclusion, does not bode well for the country. Our young people, the ones we cherish, the ones we’ve cared for, the ones we call the future…are being INDOCTRINATED to hate the country in which they live. Now, just in case you’re wondering, and you should be, there is a huge difference between being educated and being indoctrinated. According to the dictionary, indoctrination is “to teach (a person or group) to accept a set of beliefs uncritically”, and if you’ve been watching any sort of reputable newscast recently, you have seen young people in the streets, marching and rioting against…they don’t really know.

Let me state a few facts for you. The Second Amendment (2A) neither includes or excludes any type of firearm, so the folks that are SO against the AR-15 rifle don’t really know why…oh wait, it’s “scary looking”.

That particular rifle comes in many different configurations and some are so bland you’d think they were an entirely different weapon…but they’re not. Another fact: Automatic weapons CAN be in the hands of private owners, but the cost and the waiting time are prohibitive for the average person, so calling an AR an automatic weapon is just plain nuts. Last fact before we switch gears: Harsh anti-gun laws (and there are hundreds of them already on the books) do NOT affect shootings because criminals just don’t pay any attention to laws…which is why they’re called criminals.

I am opposed to anything Islamic. Surprise, surprise, surprise! We would not have the majority of the problems that we have in this country with Muslims, if the law (passed in 1952) had been enforced. Muslims would have been excluded from entering. The “Religion of Peace” is not a religion, but a cult (by definition) and Islam’s idea of peace is when the entire world is under Islamic domination. Every day, in almost every country around the world, a Muslim is committing some sort of action that, by Western (translation: civilized) culture is considered abhorrent. Islam condones murder, rape, and beheadings as well as killing prisoners in the most heinous of ways. If you’re a true believer in Islam, your wife is really your property, and her voice/testimony in a court is only worth half of yours. Mohammed took a six-year-old girl to be his bride but didn’t consummate the marriage until she was NINE, so pedophilia is also condoned.

Islam contradicts just about everything that civilization reveres. The prophet is alleged to have gotten mystical messages and he wrote them down into what eventually became the Qu’ran, the holy book of Islam. A thorough study of the book would leave the reader with several questions about the “author”. As an example, Islamists will (and do) throw homosexuals off high buildings simply because they are gay…HOWEVER, there is a saying among true believers that girls are for having children and boys are for pleasure…or words to that effect. True believers do not drink alcohol but when they get to Paradise they can drink all they want and never get drunk!

I may be wrong, but what has Islam contributed to “society” except war and death? In the roughly 1400 years that it’s been around, have Muslims developed any medical or scientific breakthroughs? They number about 1.1 billion people in the world today and, if the truth were told, it could be smaller than that but the threat of death for leaving Islam stops a lot of them. Is there any other faith that promises death if you decide to leave it? Probably not. Is there any other faith that calls for the extermination of others simply because they worship differently? Probably not. Is there any other faith that has world domination as its goal? Probably not. To be a true believer in Islam a man (women just don’t count) is allowed to do things that would land him in jail in most countries, because the Prophet says to do them.

The ordeal that some countries in Europe (soon to be Eurabia) are going through should be a warning to America. There are people here already, IN EVERY STATE, preparing for a jihad against us. If you think that “active shooters” that are found to be Muslim are randomly acting, you’re making a mistake that could cost you your life. Be alert, and if you see anything out of the ordinary tell somebody. Many times active shooter events could have been stopped if the authorities took action before. A lot of people simply don’t want to get involved, and that could be a fatal error.

Parting shot: The time HAS come, to speak of many things…of shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings. We must speak of things…now.
