To promote proletariat educational revolution, we must rely on the school’s revolutionary students, revolutionary teachers and workers. We must rely on the activists among them.” Mao Zedong, 1967
On Independence Day, President Biden reminded Americans that their independence does not extend to raising their own children. In remarks to members of the nefarious National Education Association, he said that children in America do not belong to their parents.
While the Biden administration claims to value diversity, inclusion, and unity, Biden reminded Americans what he and his puppeteers value most: appropriating your children.
According to the website Parents Defending Education, as of June 29, 2023, there were 1004 school districts, composed of 17,663 schools that serve 10,245,403 students and which have policies that “openly state that district personnel can or should keep a student’s transgender status hidden from parents.” Illinois districts on this non-exhaustive list include the following:
A school district in North Dakota has gone one step further. In May, Fargo Public School District Superintendent Dr. Rupak Gandhi announced that the district would not obey a state law prohibiting schools from concealing information from parents about their own child’s “gender” “identification.” Instead, under his tyrannical rule and based on his beliefs about children’s welfare derived from information from leftist sources, the district will keep secrets from parents about their own children.
Biden wants to include diverse American children in his project to unify America around leftist values and beliefs. In order to achieve that sweeping objective, leftists must appropriate other people’s children, turn them against their parents, fill their impressionable minds with leftist ideas, and eliminate exposure to competing ideas. In case you missed Biden’s proclamations about child appropriation, here are some reminders. Please note that when he says “our,” he means the government and teachers. And when he says “you,” he’s referring to teachers—not parents—definitely not parents:
July 4, 2023 at the National Education Association (NEA) meeting:
“Children are the kite strings — they’re not somebody else’s chil- — They’re all our children — are the kite strings that lift our national ambitions aloft, and you hold those strings. You hold those strings. And our job is to make sure you have what you need to do what you do best.”
June 8, 2023 at a joint press conference with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Biden said,
“These are our kids. These are our neighbors. It’s cruel and it’s callous. Not somebody else’s kids; they’re all our kids. They’re the kids — and our children are the kite strings that hold our national ambitions aloft.”
April 24, 2023 at the National and State Teachers of the Year Celebration, Biden said,
“[Y]ou teachers hold the kite strings that lift our national ambitions aloft. You really do. Imagine, imagine — just imagine if we didn’t have great teachers in this country, what — what difficulty we’d be in. You are determining our future.”
April 27, 2022 at the National and State Teachers of the Year Celebration, Biden said,
“Because you know — look, these aren’t — we always talk about ‘these children.’ They’re not someone else’s children. They’re our children. And they are the kite strings that literally lift our national ambitions aloft in a literal sense. Think about it. … You’ve heard me say it many times about our children, but it’s true: They’re all our children. And the reason you’re the Teachers of the Year is because you recognize that. They’re not somebody else’s children; they’re like yours when they’re in the classroom.”
May 3, 2021 in his remarks on the American Families Plan, Biden said,
“[C]hildren are the kite strings that keep our national ambitions aloft. We say, ‘all those kids,’ but they’re all our children. They’re all our children. And they are the kite strings that literally lift our national ambitions aloft.
What his proclamations lack in originality they make up for in emphasis.
Americans must be wondering exactly what those national ambitions are that our kite-string children are expected to keep aloft. Do those national ambitions have anything to do with maintaining America’s super-power position in the world? Securing the border? Keeping cocaine out of the West Wing?
Maybe Biden’s aim should be somewhat less lofty—maybe something like having strings attached to him to literally keep his body upright.
But you get his point. In his presumptuous view, your kids are the nation’s kids. In days gone by, Americans would have understood such a presumptuous claim as meaning merely that teachers teach children basic skills and facts and unifying ideas about, for example, history, literature, and civics. But that was then, and this is now.
The sad truth is that today there remain no unifying ideas about truth and few shared facts. In our dark leftopia, men can get pregnant, and women can have anatomically correct, fully functional homegrown willies.
Here’s a terrifying statement from plagiarist, influence-peddler, public-trough-slurper Biden that should serve to generate serious discussions between moms and dads about the place they want today’s government educators to have in shaping their children:
“I had a professor at the University of Delaware who became one of my great — he’s the reason I ran. I didn’t think I could. I didn’t think I should. … But what he said was … ‘Run, Joe. Run.’ That’s the power of a great educator.”
Maybe Biden should spend less time appropriating other people’s children and a little time getting to know his seventh grandchild.
