My head is spinning at the moment. To employ an metaphor from bullfighting, our republic is no longer being stuck with small spears, nor is it being lead about in a display that is managed by the Matador; the Left has raised its sword and is in the act of plunging it straight into the heart of our society.
We are being subjected to the Descabello of our youth and their innocence.
The fact that school administrators normally sends out notification of such material but failed to do so in this case means nothing. The crime is that material such as this* (excerpt of text at bottom) is being used as learning material in schools.
More of this is coming with the Common Core.
In New Hampshire - the 'Live Free or Die' state, a father has taken the step that we should have taken long ago; he went straight at the shameless enemies of humanity who ran the meeting, calling them out for causing harm to his 9th grade (14-15 year-old) daughter. When the cop who was on hand to do the bidding of the school Commissariat informed the dad that he had to leave, the latter bluntly informed the officer that the only way that he was leaving was if he was under arrest. The courageous individual did not stop there; he also let it be known that he was not going to help the cop arrest him. If the cop planned to go through with the arrest, he would to have to come to him, lay his hands on him, and take him away. He appears to have planned well. A group of what looks to be supporters, cameras in hand, followed the cop and the dad outside, documenting what occurred.
The action starts at about 19 seconds into the video on the link below. Judging by his accent, I am guessing that he is originally from either New Jersey or New York.
".......“I was shocked when I read the passage and not much shocks me anymore,” William Baer told EAG News. “My wife was stunned by the increasingly graphic nature of the sexual content of the scene and the imagery it evoked.”
He went to the school board meeting to express his objections.
“It’s absurd,” he told the school board.
“Sir, would you please be respectful of the other people?” a school board member responded.
“Like you’re respectful of my daughter, right? And my children?” he countered.
A police officer then arrived at the scene, instructing Baer to leave with him.
“You are going to arrest me because I violated the two-minute rule?” the father said. “I guess you are going to have to arrest me.”
Moments later, Baer was escorted outside and placed in handcuffs. According to WMUR-TV, he was charged with disorderly conduct because he did not immediately leave when asked by an officer.........."
He believes the politicians and educators running the public school system want to dismantle the family unit, and undermine traditional morality, “though they’re never going to admit this.”
“Many people in education and government truly believe our children are theirs. That parents are only the custodians who feed them and put a roof over their head. These school incidents are a byproduct of this ‘we know best’ philosophy. They believe they have the authority to do this. If people were more complacent, which is hard to imagine, it’d be even worse.”
Baer plans to attend the Gilford School Board meeting on Monday evening to discuss this issue with the leadership of the school.
An EAGnews investigation finds that Picoult’s “Nineteen Minutes” is used in several school districts throughout the nation.
California’s Sobrato High School includes the novel on its “9th Grade Advanced Common Core” recommended reading list.
Pennsylvania’s Deer Lakes High School includes the book in its “Advanced Academic English II” class.
G.W. Hewlett High School in New York has made the novel part of its summer reading list for incoming 11thgraders. The district, however, does caution parents that some of the books on the list contain “mature” language and content.
We can also see Sybil as a product of society. The narrator hypothesizes that her attraction to the rape fantasy is simply the attraction to power. "They're taught to worship all types of power," he muses, and within that analysis we can see how invisibility becomes pervasive throughout society. Rather than being attracted to who the narrator is, Sybil is attracted to the myth of the black rapist that society has taught her...."
