The Boiling Frog… And Other “Fables”

Written by Larry Usoff on May 17, 2019

The boiling frog is a fable describing a frog being slowly boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is put suddenly into boiling water, it will jump out, but if the frog is put in tepid water which is then brought to a boil slowly, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. Now, I want you to read that again, and again, if necessary, to make sure you understand the premise. Not that any of you are stupid, but if you’re like me, you read something and it doesn’t sink in right away. Some time later you might suddenly think to yourself, “Oh, THAT’S what that meant!” We have several instances in America today, of boiling frogs. Our frogs are the government, the schools, all the way from kindergarten through college, and, of course, the mainstream media.

In this first item, an excellent example of “creeping Islam”, we have the Northshore School District in Bothell, Washington, which has come up against American law and in most cases, gives in to ISLAMIC law! Our Constitution plainly states that there shall be no “state religion”, so how do we explain the forcible teaching of Islam in this school district? From WND (World Net Daily) there’s this: A legal team has dispatched a cease-and-desist letter to a school district in Washington state that promoted Islam through a Ramadan policy that provides special privileges for Muslim students. It’s the second district in the state found to have the special policy in just the last week. The policy directs teachers to create “safe spaces” for Muslims, plan with Muslim students to let them “quietly slip away” from class for prayer, “privately offer information” about nutrition during their Ramadan fast, give “a lesson” on Ramadan and privately ask Muslim students what accommodations they want. While students are allowed to practice their religion, the team said, and “nothing in the Constitution prohibits public schools from accommodating students’ religious exercise,” public schools are not allowed to have policies or practices that “convey a message that a particular religion, or a particular religious belief, is ‘favored.’ The First Amendment requires, in those circumstances, neutrality on religion, and a similar letter to the Dieringer School District in Lake Tapps, Washington, about the same issue. The Ramadan policy had been recommended by the terror-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations. That, folks, is our first frog being cooked.

Chips Ahoy, one of the most popular cookies on the market turns out to be our second frog. Recently, on Mother’s Day weekend as it turned out, Nabisco decided that they would “test the water” so to speak, and used a drag queen to advertise their product! A tranny actor named Jose Cancel in his guise as drag queen was tweeting and instagramming “Happy Mother’s Day to your moms, your drag moms and everyone who celebrates you being YOU,” she happily chirped. I can only wonder what the kids who watched that, or eat Chips Ahoy cookies might have been thinking. After all, HE was not a mother nor could he ever BE a mother…right? My guess is that Nabisco has this long-term advertising program in mind that, over a period of years perhaps, they will appeal to, and possibly convert, “straight” people into becoming something other than straight. Perhaps, and it’s just a thought, in the higher echelons of Nabisco are people that aren’t completely happy with their as-born gender? Remember, if it’s done in little baby-steps, a lot can be accomplished. By the way, in Australia, they’re doing away with Mother’s Day, and the reason given? It’s no longer a binary world. There’s a frog for you.

Our last boiling frog is this one… a teacher at Nellie Muir Elementary in Woodburn, Oregon, began a program of “transgendering” a boy into a girl. If that, on the face of it, wasn’t bad enough, the teacher, who was not named, did it WITHOUT the parent’s knowledge or permission! The boy, who had not even been aware of “transgender” was being “taught” about it by the teacher, and about “feeling like a girl”. She started telling him to read books and watch videos about being transgender. The mother, in a TV interview said that the boy now “felt different” about himself, and was confused. She said it was unthinkable that the teacher would do this, and to a child of that age, it had to have been something of a conflict. Thinking about a child of ANY age, being “directed” into something that they never would have thought of on their own, has to be one of those times when “scarred for life” would fit in very nicely. Aren’t there rules about things like this happening?

Parting shot: Frogs, like bees, are considered the modern-day “canary in the mine” in that their disappearance is an omen that something bad is happening in the environment world-wide. So far, bees and frogs seem to be thriving, so it would appear that we’re alright for a while. Don’t, however, be lulled into thinking that it’s going to stay that way because that is the lesson of the boiling frog…by the time we realize that something awful is taking place it may very well be too late to do anything about it. We have too many people that are too complacent about what’s going on in the world.
