This post is to wrap up some thoughts about homeschooling from the writing about it last week here and here and to add a tie in with the Immigration Stupidity topic key. Let's do that in reverse order though:
Yeah, the family above, a regular (that means man and women to the readers in Yuerba Buena) with their 6 kids had tried to immigrate from Germany to the US due to being persecuted for trying to raise their kids themselves. NEIN! ISS VERBOTEN! You must turn ofver der kindervolk to zie STADT! (American version: This is highly irregular! How can your kids be properly
This was back in the worse old days of the Øb☭ma presidency. I would hope President Trump's Dept. of Justice with executive Jeff Sessions would do good people like these right ... but you can't ever tell with them.
They wanted to live in a country where they could raise their children in accordance with their Christian beliefs.It's some sick, sick stuff that's being done to replace the American civilization. Read over that 3rd short paragraph again about the "pluralistic society" and "tolerance". There is NO tolerance for anyone like these good white Christians to live the way they would like to. The kids must be taught to accept ANYONE and EVERYONE who DIE STADT decides will live in Germany - only that way the kids will be good Germans. Orwellian there, and do you see why Peak Stupidity has written about that country as Bizarro Germany yet? (read further here.)
The Romeikes were initially given asylum, but the Obama administration objected – claiming that German laws that outlaw homeschooling do not constitute persecution.
"The goal in Germany is for an open, pluralistic society," the Justice Department wrote in a legal brief last year. "Teaching tolerance to children of all backgrounds helps to develop the ability to interact as a fully functioning citizen in Germany."
On Monday, the Supreme Court declined to hear the Romeike’s appeal – paving the way for the Christian family of eight to be deported.
"I think this is a part of the Obama administration’s overall campaign to crush religious freedom in this country," said Michael Farris, chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association. His organization is representing family.
"The Obama administration’s attitude toward religious freedom, particularly religious freedom for Christians is shocking," he told me in an exclusive telephone interview. "I have little doubt that if this family had been of some other faith that the decision would have never been appealed in the first place. They would have let this family stay."
Had the family stayed in Germany, where homeschooling is illegal, they would have faced the prospect of losing their children. Like the Pilgrims, they fled their homeland yearning for a place where they could be free.
Farris said the religious bias perpetrated by the Obama administration is "palpable."
"It’s a denial of the essence of America," he said. "The Pilgrims left England to go to Holland to seek religious freedom. They came here to seek religious freedom and parental rights for their children. Had this administration been waiting at Plymouth Rock, they would’ve told the Pilgrims to go back home."
Yes, America has Germany beat still in freedom and respect for freedom of parents to raise their own kids. It is only inside the schools where things go all to hell. Even as well meaning as most of the teachers may be and as well-educated as, what, 10% ? of 'em may also be, they don't run these places. I've seen this business up close, as was explained in latter part of Part 2.
Just the idea of sticking it to the system appeals to me, as homeschooling does in 2 ways. First, the school system loses money when fewer students attend, saving the taxpayers money in the long term and hurting BIG ED. More importantly, for the family involved, raising independent-thinking bright kids is something they can be proud of the rest of their lives, but for the rest of us, puts fear into the eyes of the elite globalists that run things, along with their underlings.
Yes, it is more of a sacrifice than cutting the TV cable, already pretty hard for most Americans. However, it's not quite as big a project as some make it out to be without knowing how much time is really wasted in government schools. Once the kids can read, 3 or 4 hours per day can be enough time for them to learn, more than get taught, more than kids learn from BIG ED. The rest of the time at home can be one big-ass field trip.
What do you think Americans did 100-200 years ago, before this Prussian-influenced crap? Oh, you say they were stupid back then? Best look on-line for one of those 8th grade tests from 1910 or whenever. I think the level of stupidity was much lower then than it is today.
Do you not like the way things are going in this country? Joined Ross Perot's Reform Party way back, then the Tea Party, then went to Trump rallies? Written lots of letters, have you, and made phone calls to "your" congressional staffers? Listen, good on ya', and I'm not knocking any of that. Having 20 million instead of 2 million children in homeschooling would just beat hell out of all from everyone put together. The parents that keep their children out of the government indoctrination camps are the true "think globally/act locally" folks that represent the spirit of America.
