SHADES OF ADOLF HITLER’S GERMANY, 1937
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jun. 15, 2013) — In a New York Times article dated January 18, 1937, journalist Otto D. Tolischus reported from Berlin, Germany that “The world-renowned German school system, already coordinated and curtailed into a mere shadow of its former self, suffered another serious wrench today when Chancellor Adolf Hitler issued the following cryptic decree typical of the manner in which vital changes are being wrought in the new Germany:
Following a report by the Reich Organization Director and the Youth Leader of the German Reich, I approve that the Nationalist Socialist schools, which are also to be preparatory schools for [sic] National Order Castles shall bear my name.
The scanning of the original print article into PDF format for the archives inadvertently omitted some of the text of Hitler’s pronouncement, but the message is still there.
Tolischus reported that Hitler’s changes to German education were considered “school reform,” but that in truth, it was “more accurately characterized as a revolution.”
Hitler’s Youth Corps, which indoctrinated boys and girls beginning at age 10, was to help shape the new educational “order.” Following graduation from high school, “distinguished” students would be admitted to “Adolf Hitler Schools” to further their indoctrination in the German army, then to “National Socialist Order Castles.” The reporter stated that the Youth Corps would “control” the Adolf Hitler Schools, while the National Socialist Order Castles “are controlled by the party itself.” It was predicted that “the Christian religion is likely to get short shrift” in both the lower and upper institutions.
In 2010, Barack Hussein Obama, who may not be a citizen of the United States and therefore not qualified to occupy the presidency, launched a national “Race to the Top” educational grant program which enticed the states to compete for billions of dollars in funding. The exchange was that the states were expected to adopt the “Common Core” curriculum which many say will indoctrinate school children and change the core curriculum of English, American history, science, mathematics, and social studies.
Several American schools have adopted the name “Barack Obama Elementary School,” one of which will close on July 1. Another voted to change its name to “Barack and Michelle Obama Service Learning Elementary.”
Common Core’s mission statement says that the new curriculum is designed to prepare children to “compete successfully in the global economy” and for “college and career.” However, evidence exists that Common Core actually lowers standards heretofore maintained by the individual states.
Many American universities have become havens for left-wing propaganda masquerading as “instruction.”
A Delaware resident and critic of Common Core stated that Delaware Gov. Jack Markell has endorsed Common Core and attempted to marginalize those opposing it, an Obama technique for silencing the opposition.
On June 15, 2013, a search with the words “Common Core Obama” yields an overwhelming number of articles opposed to the initiative.
A favorable viewpoint of Common Core stated that changes to the U.S. educational system had been in progress for at least 25 years and that “Obama and his education secretary, Arne Duncan, are a footnote to this historic education reform; he merely happened to be in the right place at the right time.”
A writer opposed to Common Core agrees that Bush’s “No Child Left Behind” program pushed education in a “progressive” direction but that Common Core “is just the natural progression of an ever-intrusive federal government that has been advancing the idea of a national school system devoid of local control.”
A Common Core supporter who sits on the board of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation claims that Common Core is a “matter of testing, not curriculum.”
Some educators and concerned individuals have called for the House of Representatives to defund Common Core, claiming that it means “educational tyranny” and “Big Brother,” who Obama mentioned in remarks about the NSA spying program on June 7.
Common Core is a national program which some consider “a stealth takeover of the American Educational system.” As with Obama’s nationalized health care program, educators and principals are having difficulties implementing Common Core, although its complete rollout is scheduled to take place in the 2014-2015 school year.
A struggle is ensuing in Utah, where there is strong opposition to Common Core by the House of Representatives and some teachers, while Gov. Gary Herbert called those proposed “the misinformed.”
Dictator Josef Stalin, who killed 20,000,000 of his own people, stated that he needed “four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
The U.S. Department of Education website quoted Education Secretary Arne Duncan as having “praised the courageous work of states that are refusing to dumb down standards and are working to expand the depth and breadth of academic programs.”
As with Obama’s health care bill, Common Core will leave the states with “unfunded federal obligations,” according to Texas Gov. Rick Perry. The state of Indiana has opted out of Common Core. Virginia, Texas and South Carolina also recently announced their withdrawal from the program.
The National Center for Education Statistice (NCES) states that a “Common Core of Data” is described as “a program of the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics that annually collects fiscal and non-fiscal data about all public schools, public school districts and state education agencies in the United States. The data are supplied by state education agency officials and include information that describes schools and school districts, including name, address, and phone number; descriptive information about students and staff, including demographics; and fiscal data, including revenues and current expenditures.”
Revelations earlier this month made by former contract worker Edward Snowden pointed to the NSA, which has been gathering massive amounts of data from Americans’ email accounts, online activity, and telephone calls, about which congressmen from both parties have expressed concern and the need for greater congressional oversight. Snowden has been called both “a hero” and “a traitor” for disclosing the information, although he says he is neither one.
The NSA claims that perhaps “dozens” of terrorist attacks have been stopped as a result of the spying. Commentator Glenn Beck has expressed fear that America is “becoming worse than Nazi Germany.” On Friday, Rep. Steve King was a guest on Beck’s television show, stating for the first time that Republican politicians are aware that their internet movements were recorded during the 2012 campaign.
On Monday, Beck will be hosting Utah Sen. Mike Lee, who reportedly will say that he has evidence that U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts was “pressured” into changing his vote on Obama’s health care bill last year. Beck has been excoriated for warning about Nazism and predicted that the news coming out in the next “ten days” will “rock” the U.S. and the rest of the world.
In addition to the new revelation, Maricopa County Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo has been attempting to persuade members of Congress to publicize the findings of fraud and forgery with Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service regation form. Zullo said he plans to take the matter “to the White House steps” if necessary.
Obama has enlisted the help and compliance of internet companies, media corporations, individuals and criminal co-conspirators to remove information from the internet, where the news flow is not “controlled” as with the mainstream media. In a search for a well-known video of elementary-school children taught to sing Obama’s praises, an error appeared showing a Google logo with the message, “The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request. Please try again in 30 seconds.
In the video, the teacher coached the children to sing to Obama’s “accomplishments” early in his first term to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic despite his lack of experience and possible ineligibility for the job.
Obama education sycophants have had almost four years to indoctrinate young people with the ideas of “social justice” and moral relativism, building on the changes which began in the 1970s as a result of the influence of progressive philosopher John Dewey. Dewey embraced Darwinism and rejected the concept of “good and evil.” He shunned Christianity and reportedly had a significant “impact” on public education.
After his installation in the White House in 2009, Obama openly acted to purge signs of Christianity from his presence and the public square. As his regime advanced, the Internal Revenue Service, FBI, Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense openly began stating that “Christians” could be “domestic terrorists.” Obama’s commanders have issued orders to their units not to criticize Islam, and the Pledge of Allegiance was recited in Arabic by schoolchildren in Colorado last January.
The importation of refugees from Muslim countries to the United States was effected through Obama’s executive orders, which do not receive congressional approval. He is now planning to bring refugees from the Syrian civil war to America, some of whom may be true “extremists,” under the auspices of “relieving pressure on Middle Eastern countries.”
Obama is suspected of being a practicing Muslim or Islamic sympathizer. During the 2008 campaign, he identified himself as being of the “Muslim faith.” Obama’s U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, William C. Killian, spoke to a Muslim group about its “civil rights” on June 4 and issued a warning to the public that anti-Islamic speech could fall under “federal jurisdiction.”
Islam has been described as a form of totalitarianism. The murder of women and girls is not prosecuted according to Islamic, or Sharia, law, if was committed out of the perceived loss of “honor.” Christians have been brutally murdered by Muslims in America under Sharia law.
The FBI appears ignorant of connections between mosques in the U.S. and sources of Islamic terror, instead pursuing veterans and those standing up for constitutional principles as “Sovereign Citizens.”
The question “Is Obama a socialist” still yields denial in the mainstream press, even though he belonged to “The New Party” in Chicago, whose goal was to pull the Democrat Party to the political left.
The Department of Homeland Security classified “patriotic Americans” such as military veterans and those believing in traditional marriage, the Second Amendment and state sovereignty as “right-wing extremists” in an April 2009 report, including radio show host Michael Savage. “Operation Vigilant Eagle” was launched by the Department of Justice early in 2009 to watch veterans for signs of “radicalism,” enlisting the help of the FBI and DHS.
At the time, Savage called Obama a “dictator” and predicted that if the regime was not stopped, gangs and left-wing radicals would be “running the country.”
In 2012, children sang another song to Obama, saying, “Yes, we can,” and “We’re gonna change it,” invoking Obama’s name as parents looked on, smiling. “Obama’s gonna change it,” a little girl’s voice begins and ends the video, which was complete with piano and flute accompaniment. Loud applause broke out at the end of the performance in which the children wore identical shirts and made coordinated gestures.
Saul Alinsky advocated ridiculing and “isolating” his political opponents to effect social change, which included riots, demonstrations, and “organizing” against corporations to demand that they hire and train more black people. Alinsky used what he called the “proxy tactic,” which meant collecting large amounts of money from outside sympathizers to his organization. “As the proxies rolled in, the pressure began to build on Kodak — and on other corporations as well…It was our proxy tactic that made all this possible. It scared Kodak, and it scared Wall Street. It’s our job now to relieve their tensions by fulfilling their fears,” Alinsky said in an interview with Playboy in 1972.
Obama was said to have learned Alinsky’s methods well.
A writer for the AP described Obama last year as “a pragmatist,” which John Dewey was also considered to be. Obama is shown to be involved personally with the U.S. Department of Education’s initiatives.
In the wake of Snowden’s NSA disclosures, the worldwide socialist community is not happy with Obama, having accused members of his regime of “perjury,” “threats and intimidation” and quoting from George Orwell, the author of 1984, which has become a bestseller since Snowden’s first interview was published by The UK Guardian on June 9.
One observer stated that “There’s no opting out of Common Core.”
On April 5, 1939, the same New York Times writer reported in a headline:
Hitler Conscripts All Reich Youths
Those Between 10 and 18 Must Join Organization for Pre-Military Training
Nazis Extend Their Charge of “Physical, Mental and Moral Education”
In 2008, Obama promised to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” as the people cheered.
