Considering President Obama continually shows disrespect for the United States and the principles of liberty it stands for, it should be no surprise that other Progressives dislike the nation as well.
For instance, Newsmax reports that Florida Progressives are up in arms over a bill that would require students to watch a patriotic film:
“Florida State Sen. Alan Hays has triggered a firestorm of controversy by introducing a bill to require eighth- and 11th-graders watch conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary, “America: Imagine The World Without Her.”
…The Orlando Weekly called the film “conservative agitprop,” warning that D’ Souza is “anti-Obama, anti-progressive [and] anti-liberal.”
An Orlando Sentinel columnist wrote that the film illustrated that “if you could cash in on crazy, Florida would be the richest state in America.”
But in an interview with Newsmax TV this summer, Hays and D’Souza emphasized that they were only asking for balance in the classroom.
D’Souza pointed to the fact that Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11 and Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” are “routinely shown in schools as an educational tool to illuminate people and foster debate.”
Considering the Progressives are pushing the adoption of Common Core standards in public schools which is filled with decidedly anti-American propaganda, one is left to wonder if the idea of making students watch a pro-American film is either a good start, or just too little…too late.
I love it when "Gunny" shows up on my tv - -my favorite expression, out of his mouth, is "Jackwagon"!! It describes soooo many politicians.
schools around the country are teaching how great islam is...but never associate it with terrorism...while they give very little time to teach anything about how our country was founded on christain values....remember this...progressives no matter what label they come under....never want a two way street or equal ideas, unless it benefits them...they will use intimidation, the law...and anything else to win their argument. the school should have just showed the film immediately one day without any notice or warning....the results of progressivism is in Detroit, Chicago, California, new York, and what we see with Obama and his tyrannical policies. know this...Obama is the Trojan horse that progressives could never get into the presidency before. notice how one day he was unknown..the next he was president. even his lies and coverups are hailed as great policies, even though the progressive news media coversup and protects him. the terrorists as we know what they are.....are not as dangerous as Obama and his followers are...we have all been asleep at the wheel..and are now paying the price for it..this last election was not a victory..because now talking and complaining is over..now is the time for action..that means that parents must retake their kid schools, conservatives must take to the streets against this immigration policy just like the blacks do in ferguson, flood the whitehouse with mail and emails, protest at the borders...have rallies at the borders to shut the border down, complain to mexico, support the sheriffs around the country who will all be marching in Washington on dec 10th....don't waste time with complaints..thats long gone...take action..take action.....take action...take action...stop being so friggin nice..we are being taken over by the progressives, and they do not want to work with anybody...wake up.
I think it would be even better for the parents to watch it as well as people seem to have lost sight of what a great nation we are blessed to call our own.
God bless America!
By all means!!! Maybe while you are at it, remind them of their duty of responsibility to their Children's moral & ethical upbringing.
Progressives be damned; make the students watch it anyway and if any of them call in "sick" for the day, have a "special showing", just for them, on their first day back. This should be required in ALL fifty states.
Will someone please tell Progressives to sit-down and shut-up!
Conservatives really need to recognize fully that the Left has just been poised and waiting for the classic (Marxist ideology) 'reaction' to the revolutionary takeover moves that they have employed in this country for some time now. More and more conservatives are coming 'online' as to what has been going on, and the ideological Left are ready to shell the daylights out of them. So - don't flinch at their responses to your attempts to 'rebalance the books,' Conservatives; and be fully aware of the matter. It is all part of their game plan. They are ideologues. This is no longer a 'normal' battle between the Democrats and the Republicans in a two-party system. The Democrat Party has shifted to the far Left; and those ideologues have no intention of giving up their current command of the high ground, be it political or religious or whatever. They are in it to the death of free institutions - individual liberty, private property, free enterprise; the works. They want to control the populace to within an inch of their lives, in a massively surveillance-state-constructed New World Order. They mean well. They have just been brainwashed. The same way that they want the newer generations to be brainwashed.
Love them. (They are still 'spiritual beings having a human experience', along with the rest of us.) Engage with them in debate. Just don't let them control the terms of the debate, or get away with trying lo demolish your point of view by attacking YOU/calling you smear or ridicule words. (That's part of their agenda; straight out of Saul Alinsky's 'Rules for Radicals' instruction book.) And above all, don't give them the excuse they want, to have their Dear Leader declare Martial Law, and 'deconstruct' the Constitution in one fell swoop.
We will all come out of this confrontation better than when we went into it. Trust the process. And play your part convincingly. The lukewarm need not apply. This is about true patriots, willing to stand up for their beliefs. Out of which, will come the larger Truth of the entire matter.
What it has been all about, in the first place.
Equal time-seems fair to me. "Fair" is a big thing with Liberals, have you noticed? A Cop doing his duty to uphold the Law is "Unfair". Wanting to uphold the Laws on the Border "Unfair". Forcing Healthcare people don't want it is "Fair". In the name of fairness, why don't our Senate & House march over to the WH, and demand the immediate evacuation of these Communist Trash. Turn off all power, throw them out in the streets, and tell them to get a bus out of town. Or better put them on a plane to Sierra Leone..
If the Mooch can try and tell them what to eat, the least we can do, is show them a movie, with lots of buttery Pop-Corn, and a big Blasio sized Coke.
I just sent the Senator an email thanking him for his efforts, and think it would be nice if others did this, simply "Google" his name & title, and you get his email. We must be Thankful for our Friends, and let them know we appreciate them. I am thankful for Sen Hays.
It is time for Conservatives to take control of the public school system.
