President Obama's live video speech to the nation's schoolchildren today may be a technological first, but the White House is borrowing an old-school tactic from radical environmentalists who have been using the public schools to brainwash children for decades.
Look no further than the ongoing love affair "educators" are having with Al Gore's propaganda documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. In America, we met one student who was forced to watch Gore's fear-mongering film about global warming four times in four different classes. Another one was subjected to Gore's hysteria four times in high school and twice his first year of college.
The impact of such indoctrination is obvious in the United Kingdom. The British High Court ruled in October 2007 that An Inconvenient Truth is so riddled with factual errors that schools can't show it unless they acknowledge it is scientifically debatable. But the warning doesn't matter to children; they believe the exaggerations, as evidenced in this clip from our forthcoming film Not Evil Just Wrong: The True Cost Of Global Warming Hysteria.
The problem is that schools and universities today care more about pushing pet political causes like radical environmentalism than they do about teaching core subjects. Public schools have become ideological hatcheries for liberals.
Blogger Melissa Clouthier has seen the impact firsthand, even in a conservative school district. "My kids came home from school worried about global warming and the world ending," she wrote after hearing about Obama's speech. "Our mind-numb society didn't happen in a vacuum."
That's why we are big fans of homeschooling. As Europeans, we used to believe the stereotype that home-schoolers are religious fanatics who want to program their children, but now we know better. They just want to protect their kids from the environmental proselytizers in public schools.
