Heidi St. John: “Parents need to understand we’re up against Cultural Marxism— Ground Zero is the public education system—Get off the bench, California”

By Michael Hernandez

 

CHINO HILLS—”Parents need to understand we’re up against Cultural Marxism,” said Heidi St. John, a homeschool advocate at the Sept. 19th “Come Back California” day-long internet video conference, seen by more than 30,000. “Ground Zero is the public education system. Get off the bench, California.

“Education is not neutral. People are hijacking education. We’ve all but lost the battle for education. Radicals have infiltrated the public school system and it is not recognizable. California is leading the way into darkness for the next generation. Wake up and get engaged and vote out the people who have allowed (this) infiltration in California. Cultural Marxism is the “left idea” that attacks “traditional culture” and the “traditional family” which is about “marriage and patriotism.”

“It is a lie” to say that rioting is “not moving into the suburbs,” said Heidi St. John, who homeschools her family of seven children, just 30 miles from Portland.  Where did the rioters “get their revolutionary ideas?” Where did they “learn that America is inherently racist?” From the “public school system.”

“They were indoctrinated in our educational system.” Examples of this are:

  • Comprehensive sex education (“sexual indoctrination causing damage to the hearts and minds of our young people…We cannot talk about abstinence in California public schools…Sexual indoctrination is legislated.”)
  • Sexual orientation training (“California educators assume the role of parenting…Grooming our children to consent to sex…Most parents have no idea that their kids schools are pushing insane transgender ideology.”)
  • Encouraging abortion without parental notification (“brainwashing children and calling parents dangerous…turning children against their parents and causing us to lose a generation of children.”)
  • Social Emotional Learning (“This endangers the health and privacy of your children.” )

“Teacher unions are dangerous and devastating to parents. Unions want to defund police. We should be defunding the teacher unions.

“I have spent my life raising children to fear God and love their country—not to be socialists. We cannot leave our children in (government) schools for one moment longer. 

“How should we be voting?” 

“We need to be proactive. Go on the offense. Use your voices. Tell your pastors to open up our churches. Parents need to take responsibility for their child’s education all the way through college.”

Parents need to REMOVE their precious children from the government schools and homeschool them (not with government curriculum!). http://www.exodusmandate.org

FOLLOW THE MONEY……Until there are national vouchers this will continue. If public education is as perfect as those pushing it, then the voucher would go to your local public school. You can have life ending “choice” when it comes to abortion, but just try to fight the ever powerful teachers union(s);but that’s what it will take for securing vouchers.

Thanks for your most helpful information.
Just saw an article on the same topic– Transgender Ideology– by the same speaker mentioned above, Abigail Shrier in an Eagle Forum Report, Vol. 4, No. 9, Sept. 2020, entitled “Let Girls Be Girls.”
In the article, a girl who is now detransitioning rightly points out: “This is not something that you came to the decision on your own — especially if you were under eighteen, you were like a child. Other people should have been looking out for your well-being.”

Parents now, more than ever need to look out for the well-being of their young people.
Do not trust the public schools to look out for your child’s well being. Do not trust your young people to those who are in
lockstep with this ideology.

What more reasons do you need to fight the school boards and unions that support this sedition.
