|Something Smells In American Schools|

President Obama's speech to schoolchildren this week ended up being rather benign, but parents were right to pitch a fit about it beforehand. They may have forced the White House to abandon the kind of nonsense American children see every day on topics like global warming.
As a former teacher, I used to help pump liberal ideas into schools. But now I am infuriated when I hear children spouting global warming hysteria because I know they are getting those harebrained ideas from adults who should know better.
I saw it in Northern Ireland during the filming of Not Evil Just Wrong. Here's a clip that shows how children are being frightened:
If that isn't enough to convince you that teachers are terrifying children, watch two music videos about "climate change" that are composed in styles that appeal to children - one from an initiative funded by NASA and the National Science Foundation and another by the group EkoBoys.
On second thought, don't watch the videos. They're painfully long, and the music may cause your head to explode. But do read the lyrics so you can appreciate the in-your-face false messages that children hear through subtle techniques like music videos. Here are two excerpts:
From "Take Aim At Climate Change": "For real, all it takes is a couple degrees before floods, droughts and hurricanes are not anomalies, and all these catastrophes become our new realities comin' down on the world just like the Sword of Damocles.
From the EkoBoys: "I'm standing alone, watching the world going down, from toxic waste and global warming. I feel so weak."
That kind of propaganda is being pushed into schools every day. The NASA/NSF video is part of the Passport To Knowledge project aimed at secondary school students.
The Alliance for Climate Change, meanwhile, was created solely to teach children myths about the environment. As The American Spectator noted this week in a story headlined "I Pledge To Promote Global Warming Propaganda," the group already has "educators" pushing its propaganda in five major U.S. cities - Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco/Oakland. ACE hopes to teach/indoctrinate 140,000 students by the end of the year.
ACE's techniques include high school assemblies that are designed to "activate, educate [and] your school to create a future safe from climate change," according to the trailer for the program. One student in the trailer admitted that he paid more attention to the message because of the animation, which included farting cows, sound effects and all.
Like all environmentalists who have infiltrated American schools, ACE definitely knows how to manipulate its target demographic.
Impressionable children will never know they're being brainwashed when scientifically flawed information is hidden within music videos and clever animation. Parents won't know it, either, if they don't pay attention to what the schools are force-feeding their kids.
It's time for parents to make a bigger stink in schools than any cow fart.
