Obama Wants to Eliminate All Education that Does not Support the State

Obama attacked sectarian religious schools in Ireland because, as he put it, they cause division. The speech was bizarre but with a hidden purpose. Ireland isn’t divided politically because of its schools.

And how would this unity of purpose be accomplished if these sectarian schools did not exist? You guessed it. All the schools would be run by the State. Ed Morrissey writes: “[T]his makes a handy mechanism to call for the displacement of private education and religious instruction from education, with nothing left except state-controlled schools that indoctrinate children into whatever norms the governing/ruling class deem acceptable.”

Here’s part of what President Obama told his audience of about 2000 young people:

“We need you to get this right. And what’s more, you set an example for those who seek a peace of their own. Because beyond these shores, right now, in scattered corners of the world, there are people living in the grip of conflict — ethnic conflict, religious conflict, tribal conflicts — and they know something better is out there.  And they’re groping to find a way to discover how to move beyond the heavy hand of history, to put aside the violence. They’re studying what you’re doing. And they’re wondering, perhaps if Northern Ireland can achieve peace, we can, too.  You’re their blueprint to follow. You’re their proof of what is possible — because hope is contagious. They’re watching to see what you do next.”

Are we really to believe that the Muslim nations that are beheading people, cutting open their chests and eating their hearts on the battle field, bombing schools, mosques, and churches, stoning women for being raped, persecuting Christians, putting people in jail because they are no longer Muslim are looking to Northern Ireland to see what the people there will do about their schools? This is insanity.

There are thousands of Catholics and Protestants schools in America. Some of the finest scholars come out of these non-taxpayer funded institutions. The only conflict that I see is on the basketball court or the football field.

There’s an insidious hidden agenda here. Obama wants to eliminate all ideological competition. If he had his way, there would be no alternative news sources. The administration would send out news reports each day, and state-approved news people would read the news to a compliant and non-competitive people. Actually, it’s happening already as traditional media voluntarily support the president’s agenda without critique.

The modern liberal collective mentality is less extreme version of The Matrix, but it’s just as insidious. They want all children plugged into the collective so their energies can be used to grow the State and to be dependent on the State.

A statement that Benito Mussolini made comes to mind:

“Everything for the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State.”[1]

This is Obama’s motto and ultimate desire. He and his follow-liberals have pulled a page from Adolf Hitler’s educational playbook:

“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ [Hitler] said in a speech on November 6, 1933, “I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already. . . . What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’

“And on May 1, 1937, [Hitler] declared, “This new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.”[2]

One of the first think tyrannical regimes do is take control of education. It’s taken a long time in the United States. A lot of conservatives have blasted the President’s Ireland speech, but let’s face facts, a majority of Americans voluntarily send their children to government schools where there is no ideological competition.

    He does not like education that does not support the state? He does not support any state at all nor our country. So I do not like him at all.

    • SofiesVoice

      To obama, the “state” is DC….the district of corruption.

  • Suzanne Accashian

    There are many that argue Common Core is the beginning and it is in place by the Federal Government. I am only saddened at how States gave up all their Education Rights for Federal Dollars. They sold their soul and they are now paying the price, it is their children.

    • SofiesVoice

      Exactly. Every time the states accept federal money they have to abide by federal rules. That is one reason the catholic schools and home schools don’t take federal funds. They don’t want to be in bed with the Devil.

  • talltreetrader

    Obama couldn’t look any more like Hitler even with a Hollywood make over!

  • Tonto

    Seig Heil! Der Fuhrur has spoken. The fag is going more Nazi every day.

  • SammysDad

    Most of those people who are “watching to see what you do next.” have no idea what or where Ireland is. What a bunch of MALE CATTLE EXCREMENT! This man is an overwhelming, disgusting embarrassment to America.

  • Dalgast

    Wither you want to believe it or not, that is exactly what he wants in this country. You sheeple elected a kaffir Hitler and he’s going by the same exact game plan as Hitler did.

  • TAM44

    We of a certain age can remember when schools taught the 3 R’s and band, and glee club and all sorts of history, geography, science, Drivers ed where even girls learned about cars they would soon be driving. There was much diversity in school then but it was in the curriculum not the students.I truly enjoyed school and missed it when I was out on my own.Kids today dont like school and need to worry about what they say to whom because the govt has made everyone so this skinned its sickening.
    Lets just be sure we vote for the issues we want not for a certain party. If the guys on the left is your idea of policies you like then by all means vote DEM. On the otherhand if you feel otherwise then vote REP. or independent and always vote.

  • SofiesVoice

    Who gives a rip what Obama wants. It’s what you and I want that counts. This is the country of WE THE PEOPLE!

    • Mercyful

      Don’t be too sure, the way things are going he’ll have it his way very soon.

  • Chuck

    That’s what socialism does. The government is the most important thing and comes first in all situations, drones are expected to blindly follow. Sixty plus million voters, with the help of non -voting Tea Party zealots, reelected Obama amd his socialist government. They want all the government giveaways that are going to blacks, illegals, homosexuals, women, and muslims. That’s the price of becoming a socialist country.

  • dondehoff

    I regret to say that I believe our president has confused “we the people” with “The State” and he seriously believes the State should control all aspects of our lives. I firmly believe that position alone is sufficient grounds for immediate impeachment as it is in direct conflict with our Republic, Constitutional and freedom way of life—-which is also in direct conflict with his oath of office. Congress, just what does it take for you to take action? If you do not act soon, there may be “blood in the streets” and congress as our legislative body, will cease to exist, as all control will be in the hands of a few NWO fanatics. No congressperson will be able to go back to their state and look either their family or constituents in the eye. And I say “few” with misgiving, as I suspect there are hundreds of other NWO supporters “out there” who all should be stood before a firing squad. “They” may let congress stay in office, but their duties will be relegated to settling family squabbles and traffic tickets. —one man’s opinion.

    BASED ON MOST OF THE COMMENTS HERE, NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT COMMON CORE EDUCATION STANDARDS. YOU NEED TO HURRY AND EDUCATE YOURSELVES AS CC STANDARDS ARE TO BE IMPLEMENTED NEXT YEAR. TEACHER TRAINING CLASSES ARE BEING FORMED RIGHT NOW.

    CONCERNING C/C SO PARENTS ARE NOT PRIVY TO TESTS, CRITERIA FOR TESTING, WHO THE
    COURSES WERE DESIGNED AND BY WHOM?

    WHY DID THE GOVERNMENT (NATIONAL
    GOVERNOR’S ASSOCIATION) BYPASS THE CITIZENS AND THEIR ELECTED OFFICIALS ON THE
    PROCESS?

    WHY IS INDOCTRINATION
    RUNNING WILD IN THE LEAD UP INFORMATION (CONTENT) TO THE TESTING? THIS CONCERNS
    CLIMATE CHANGE, FREE MARKETS, MOTIVATION OF ISLAMIC EXTREMIS AND MISREPRESENTS
    THE 9/11 TERRORISTS….AND MUCH MORE.

    EXPLAIN THAT THE LOCALS WOULD HAVE
    TO GO BEGGING TO THE NATIONAL GOVERNOR’S ASSOCIATION TO GET PERMISSION TO CHANGE

    LEARNING DISABILITIES, ATTENDANCE AND DISCIPLINARY RECORDS, % OF CHILDREN BORN
    WEIGHING LESS THAN 5.5 LBS, DWELLING ARRANGEMENTS, DISEASES/ILLNESSES, RELIGIOUS
    AFFILIATION, ETC.

  • Phillipe Violette

    Many parents have no choice but to send their children to the government indoctrination centers, I mean schools. Its the low income/low info parents that are forced into this so their kids will grow up to be good demonocrats.

  • dangkids

    Obama, just shut up already, you are so full of BS and quite frankly are a joke to which everyone is still laughing at. Idiot.
