First It Was Police, Now It Is Massachusetts Teachers [OPINION]
Those determined to tear our Republic to pieces have trained their rage on the men and women who serve and protect and educate our society and citizens.
The Boston Globe Sunday edition of July 12, 2020, has a front-page story about the "school to prison pipeline" that is guided by racism and focused on destroying the lives of Black children. The children are innocent pawns in this maze of "systemic racism" while the public school teachers act as overseers driving the Black kids into an inescapable pipeline sending them directly to prison.
Who knew that the Massachusetts Teachers Association and the National Educaticators Association was an arm of Ku Klux Klan? Apparently, the wealthy suburb of Arlington, Massachusetts is one of the bastions of White supremacy in Massachusetts. Does Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Governor Charlie Baker know about their complicity in this conspiracy?
I first learned of the mythical "school to prison pipeline" from the Communist Party USA's official newspaper. I read the Communist publications so you don't have to read them. "There’s an alarming—and long-lived—trend in schools across the country when it comes to discipline. From preschool to high school, discipline policies have done a terribly efficient job of pushing students out of the classroom and into the criminal justice system," it reported.
What the Communists are saying is that going to school is how you end up in prison. They are accusing teachers and school administrators of a wide-ranging conspiracy to funnel kids in the public schools into a system to illegally entrap them and put them in prison. The Communists are claiming the American public schools are as horrific as the education scenes in Pink Floyd's The Wall – faceless children on a conveyer belt being fed into a meat grinder and made into human hamburger.
Obviously education has been the key to the success of all individuals. Those bent on destroying our great nation, like the Communists, have a vested interest in convincing people not to get an education, not to succeed, and to join them in their vicious campaign to destroy the American Republic.
Public school teachers are no more responsible for the problems in America than the local police. School teachers and police officers provide stability and opportunity for their fellow citizens. Naturally, they are going to be attacked in this revolutionary climate.
