I am pro-Palestine. And I am 100% … anti-Israel. I believe Israel has no right to exist. I believe the United States has no right to exist. I believe every settler colony that has committed genocide against native peoples, against indigenous people has no right to exist. … White supremacy destroys for the sake of destruction. Abolition destroys for the sake of creation. But y’all are the demons. Y’all are the villains. We’ve been trying to end y’all. … And we’re going to continue to do that.
Gross, the woman who supports Palestine—which btw, appropriated land from the indigenous Jewish people—was paid $250,000 in federal money by a public school district in California to train teachers to indoctrinate elementary school students with leftist propaganda.
According to the Daily Caller,
Scores for English and math at Glassbrook Elementary have fallen since the program’s implementation, with fewer than 4% of students posting proficient scores in math and a little under 12% testing at grade level in English. The decreases were nearly 4-percentage point drops since the implementation of “Woke Kindergarten” at the school.
What has the school district done about this outrageous waste of taxpayer money? They put the teacher who revealed the Woke Kindergarten waste to the press—self-described “gay moderate” Tiger Craven-Neeley—on administrative leave.
In the section of her Woke Kindergarten website titled “Woke Wonderings,” Gross lists a series of ideologically biased, leading questions for teachers in which are embedded leftist assumptions on issues unrelated to the things elementary schools should be teaching:
· If we challenge the legitimacy of the Supreme Court, how might we transfer power back to the people?
· If we abolished the police, what else could we do to keep people in the world safe?
· If we eradicate borders, how might we build our communities to include and support our neighbors from all over the world?
· If every military in the world was defunded and abolished, how could we use that money for care instead?
· If the United States defunded the Israeli military, how could this money be used to rebuild Palestine?
· If we abolished money, how could people get the most important things they need?
· If we abolished landlords, how could we make sure everyone has safe and accessible housing?
· How could we give land back to the indigenous people who it was stolen from?
· If parents and caregivers didn’t have to work, how might this impact the lives of their kids?
One thing I learned from these questions is that Gross understands virtually nothing about anything.
Gross shares her identity and scheme for profiting from propaganda. She identifies as an “abolitionist early educator, cultural organizer and creator currently innovating ways to resist, heal, liberate and create with their pedagogy, Woke Kindergarten.”
For those who have never heard the term “abolitionist teaching,” it is a newish fad from leftists invested in—not so much abolishing public schools—but destroying them from within and appropriating the structures and money for their revolution.
Two and a half years ago, in an article about the co-founder of the Abolitionist Teaching Network, Dr. Bettina Love, I wrote,
[T]he woke have been continually hatching plans to abolish America piece by piece, replacing it with woke AmeriKa. Leftist control of culture is now virtually absolute, especially over education. Leftists control university departments of education where they turn impressionable university students into revolutionary disciples who sashay into government schools armed with notebooks full of lesson plans and brains full of leftist dogma on race, sexuality, equity, oppression, and American history. From their ivory tower perches, “education” professors launch not only missionaries but also professional journals, activist organizations, and blogs. Just as liberalism birthed “progressivism,” “progressivism” has now birthed anarchy in the form of the new “abolition” movement.
Love is a black lesbian who is now employed by the Teacher’s College of Columbia University. Although I’m not sure what she does there, I am sure about her goals with abolitionist education:
Abolitionist teaching is so much about eradicating … not trying to reimagine. … Now we are at a moment to say abolition. … we are … done with gradual, incremental reforms. … We are talking about trying to abolish a system that is oppressive.
In 2015, she proclaimed, “the world free of oppression is going to be led by Queer folk.” In her brave queer world,
If children of color are attending schools that do not help them interpret the racist, sexist, Islamophobic, patriarchal, homophobic, transphobic and xenophobic world they are living in, then not only is the status quo maintained, but Whiteness is never disrupted.
After abolitionist educators finish all their disrupting and eradicating, they will socially construct a new distorted lens ground from critical race theory through which children will be forced to view the world, and dissenting teachers will be crushed. Love says,
Abolitionist teaching. … comes from a critical race lens and applies methods like protest, boycotting, and calling out other teachers who are racist, homophobic, or Islamophobic.
Just imagine what leftists would do if they found out a school district had spent $250,000 of federal money to train teachers to promote heteronormativity, love of country, impenetrable border security, capitalism, the bone-headedness of the defund the police movement, the lies of BLM, the necessity of a strong U.S. military, and the injustice and impracticability of returning land to indigenous people.
I see a lot of heads exploding as microaggressions reach critical mass.
