As I learn more and more about the Common Core Standards and how it has and will be implemented, it brings me to a very dark and confused place as a parent and as a concerned citizen. We now live in a country where believing in God and expressing our religious rights in public schools are ridiculed, mocked, and forbidden. Yet the federal government, through bully tactics, crony capitalism, and distortion, infiltrated our national education system and has made it a standard to teach young children about masturbation, homosexuality, transgenderism, pedophilia, incest, and more. The most alarming part of this corruption is that there is growing proof that parents are not being kept in the loop as to what their children are seeing and learning via the Common Core Standards. If someone told you twenty years ago that the ability to express your religious beliefs in public schools would be banned, but it would be a national standard for our federal government to teach your children everything about sex, including incest and pedophilia…you would think that they were crazy and needed some medical attention. Welcome to the new America! We currently have a governmental assault on our children and how they think, feel, and associate themselves around others. Should our children be open-minded about our ever-changing society and be educated about their body parts and how sex can change their lives? Of course, but it is not the job of our federal government! I have two boys who are six and eleven, and I just could not imagine anyone, much less the public schools, teaching them about their bodies or what homosexuality is, yet this is now common and accepted in our public schools.
WARNING! – the following contains graphic material, but our government thinks it is just fine. The following are graphic and explicit excerpts from The Bluest Eye, which is on the Common Core’s list of exemplar texts for 11th graders. This is just a small example of the extremely graphic material being exposed to our children –
Pages 162-163: “A bolt of desire ran down his genitals…and softening the lips of his anus. . . . He wanted to f*** her—tenderly. But the tenderness would not hold. The tightness of her vagina was more than he could bear. His soul seemed to slip down his guts and fly out into her, and the gigantic thrust he made into her then provoked the only sound she made. Removing himself from her was so painful to him he cut it short and snatched his genitals out of the dry harbor of her vagina. She appeared to have fainted.”
Page 174: “He further limited his interests to little girls. They were usually manageable . . . His sexuality was anything but lewd; his patronage of little girls smacked of innocence and was associated in his mind with cleanliness.” And later, this same pedophile notes, “I work only through the Lord. He sometimes uses me to help people.”
Page 181: “The little girls are the only things I’ll miss. Do you know that when I touched their sturdy little t*** and bit them—just a little—I felt I was being friendly?—If I’d been hurting them, would they have come back? . . . they’d eat ice cream with their legs open while I played with them. It was like a party.”
Pages 84-85: “He must enter her surreptitiously, lifting the hem of her nightgown only to her navel. He must rest his weight on his elbows when they make love, to avoid hurting her breasts…When she senses some spasm about to grip him, she will make rapid movements with her hips, press her fingernails into his back, suck in her breath, and pretend she is having an orgasm. She might wonder again, for the six hundredth time, what it would be like to have that feeling while her husband’s penis is inside her.”
Pages 130-131: “Then he will lean his head down and bite my t** . . . I want him to put his hand between my legs, I want him to open them for me. . . I stretch my legs open, and he is on top of me…He would die rather than take his thing out of me. Of me. I take my fingers out of his and put my hands on his behind…”
Pages 148-149: “With a violence born of total helplessness, he pulled her dress up, lowered his trousers and underwear. ‘I said get on wid it. An’make it good, n*****, Come on c***. Faster. You ain’t doing nothing for her.’ He almost wished he could do it—hard, long, and painfully, he hated her so much.”
Many parents are not aware of the National Sexuality Education Standards that are a part of Common Core and how they will be implemented in all academic subjects. That is right, they plan on teaching their disturbing views and opinions of sexual education in every subject. They will force children to learn about sex education which will be integrated in math, science, social studies, and more. I am sure you are asking yourself, as many other parents are….What does sexual education have to do with math or social studies? Combining sex education with all other subjects prevents parents from opting their children out of this type of material and teaching. If it is just a thirty minute sex education class that a parent is opposed to, that parent could simply opt his/her child out of that class. This will not be possible in the near future. This tactic is no accident.
Here is a short video by The Heritage Foundation explaining how Common Core threatens the common sense relationship between our public schools and parents –
Many of states that previously accepted millions from the federal government for Common Core are now reconsidering. Here is a quote from Bobby Jindal, the Governor of Louisiana –
“It’s time for Partnership of Assessments for College and Career Readiness to withdraw from Louisiana. We won’t let the federal government take over Louisiana’s education standards. We’re very alarmed about choice and local control over curriculum being taken away from parents and educators. Common Core has not been fully implemented yet in Louisiana, and we need to start the process over. It was rushed in the beginning and done without public input. Additionally, proponents weren’t up front about federal involvement in PARCC and Common Core. Now that we understand the federal overreach involved, we need to slow down and make the right decision. Some Common Core proponents suggest that we cannot have high standards without Common Core. That is a false statement. We need a Louisiana test that ensures children are performing at high levels so they can compete not only around the country, but around the world. We can certainly have high standards without giving up control of Louisiana’s education system to the federal government. If other states want to allow the federal government to dictate to them, they have every right to make that choice. But education is a primary responsibility of states, and we will not cede this responsibility to the federal government.”
Here is a long but very informative video by free lance journalist Nicole Revels and Whitney Neal of Freedom Works. The video gives great detail as to how Common Core started, who started it, and how it will affect parents, teachers, children, and more. Please watch the video because no one article can explain the wide areas of concern Common Core has and how it will affect everyone in this country.
Here at Prevent Common Core we believe all citizens, whether they have children or not, should educate themselves about the Common Core Standards. Research as many sources as you can and come up with your own opinion. If you are as disturbed and concerned as millions of others are, please take the time to send a letter, email, or talk to your local representative about the alarming material and tactics our government is exposing to our children.
