One of my favorite blogs to read and probably the most important blog documenting what is happening in education and the economy in real time is called Invisible Serf’s Collar. I told you about this blog in my piece about how Common Core is not about education.
The author of this blog, Robin Eubanks, is the reason my partner in crime, Lidia, started digging beyond Common Core into the global forces and sinister plans outlined for the future of our country that is to be achieved, partially, through education and dangerous policies made by people who are not elected officials.
Indulge me here and follow my winding train of thought. We all know there’s a crisis at the border. I believe this “crisis” is manufactured and the reasoning behind it is well thought out and researched. A big part of making America into what the progressive change agents want relies on both uninformed voters who feel they “owe” allegiance to the people who made the policies that allow them entrance into the US and changing the economy from the evil Capitalist system we now have into a more socialist/communist economy.
It’s partly all about equality. The kingmakers want us all to be equal…equally poor and dependent on the government.
When talking about equality we always go back to the civil rights movement. Even though we have a black president apparently our nation is still very back-wood and redneck and basically a gigantic KKK Clan. We need everything to be equitable and according to the US Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, education is the new civil rights movement.
His thought, as with many others, is that the Common Core is the path to equitable outcomes in education. As with the economy where we are all equally poor, the Common Core will ensure that our students are all equally stupid. The kind of useful idiots who will guarantee the growth and reliance on the government to control our lives because we are too dumb to have the freedom to do so on our own.
In reading one of Robin’s latest posts she includes a link that introduces us to Wade Henderson, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. In June of this year Mr. Henderson gave a keynote speech at the Rethinking Accountability conference in Washington, DC.
Read this chilling report from Robin Eubanks:
“Henderson does a shout-out to the 2 major US teachers unions, AFT and the NEA, and notes they are partners working on his Board as well as to his Vice-Chair, the General Counsel of maldef-the Mexican-American Legal Defense Education Fund. Legal amnesty and future citizenship for anyone who can make it to US soil is not a side issue. It is front and center of the Leadership Council’s (composed of 200 separate component groups) efforts to force the US towards Economic Justice and an Equitable Society and ‘building a More Ideal Union.’ Henderson points out that the “thousands of students who may not yet be citizens” need to be educated as if they were. You cannot watch that speech and especially the AFT President’s intro and not grasp that an invasion by migrants is viewed as a crucial means of fundamental transformation. It will radicalize education, the ballot box, and enable democratic local decision-making via participatory mandates of the relevant stakeholders in every community entitled to be consulted.”
Watch the entire keynote here.
In this interview you will hear all about progressive whites and the change needed in the economy. I wish I had this guy’s crystal ball so I, too, could see into the future and know what the economy will look like. Or maybe I just need to get in with the crowd who is actually planning that economy rather than letting the free market system do what it’s supposed to do.
Take the Common Core and add in thousands upon thousands of illegal alien (yeah, I said alien) children that are “yet” to be citizens and you get two key ingredients to the destruction of the American economy and our way of life. Throw in a little rewriting of American history and you get a frightening picture of what the planners’ vision for our country is. And that is only part of the story.
I encourage you to read Invisible Serf’s Collar to see what is really going on. Read the comments too, you will learn a lot more there. And if you are feeling adventurous, follow all of Robin’s links and read all of her references to reports. You will be shocked to learn how far we have come in the destruction. Common Core is just one of the final nails, unfortunately.
You will find that, unfortunately, she is dead right and should be the maven to start a revolution to get back to where we were meant to be, as the greatest country in the world.
