Nomination for ‘Best Email of the Year’ stirs controversy, strikes nerves

Talk about striking a nerve.

According to the Association of Mature American Citizens, the self-labeled “voice of Americans 50+,” the following polite rant was sent by member Howard Sharpell, and it caught the eye of the editor who headlined it bluntly, “Nominated for Best Email of the Year.”

After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said:

‘Let me see if I’ve got this right.

‘You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning.

‘You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and personal pride.

‘You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a checkbook, and apply for a job.

‘You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they all pass the final exams.

‘You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card.

‘You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps.

‘You want me to do all this, and then you tell me……
I can’t pray.

There is no explanation of the nomination, or background on the origin of the post or its author, but it has stirred something in parents, educators and average Americans alike. Based on the passionate comments the rant generated and its nomination, by someone, as best email of the year, I thought it was worth sharing.

    The Education in the U.S. is hijacked by Mentally PERVEERT and Sexually DEPRAVED Left-Wingers: demonCrats/marxists/ communists/depraved fascists.

    Public schools NOT educate our children. They INDOCTRINATE them and wash-brain them by LIES, Distortions of Reality and History and Corrupt the morality of our children by promoting and advocating DEBAUCHERY.

    “Give me the child until he is seven and I will show you the man” is normally attributed to the Jesuits.

    This AXIOM was rephrased by Vladimir Lenin – the father of the Russian Bolshevik Revolution: “Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a BOLSHEVIK FOREVER”

    William H. Seawell, an American Professor of Education at the University of Virginia (1981) echoes that plan/model:

    “Public schools promote civic rather than individual pursuits. . . We must focus on creating citizens for the good of society. . . . EACH CHILD BELONGS TO THE STATE.”

    B. F. Skinner, an American psychologist, behaviorist and ‘SOCIAL PHILOSOPHER’ wrote:

    We must delegate CONTROL of the population AS A WHOLE to specialists——to police, priests, teachers, therapies, and so on, with their specialized reinforces and their codified contingencies.”

    We SHALL SODOMIZE YOUR SONS…We shall seduce them in your schools…Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image…All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men…All males who insist on remaining STUPIDLY HETEROSEXUAL WILL BE TRIED IN HOMOSEXUAL COURTS…” [SOURCE: Gay Manifesto: Gay Political Leader, Entered into the US Congressional Record, 15 February 1987]

    “… Bible-BELIEVING PEOPLE do NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO INDOCTRINATE THEIR CHILDREN in their religious beliefs” – Paul Hoagland, U.S. Representative (D – Nebraska)

    And you People, still do not understand what is going on in our country with “education”. The Gov’t and godless Political Party hijacked “the right” to INDOCTRINATE and brain-wash OUR children in the Utopian Marxism and DEPRAVITY, but the Parents can’t teach THEIR children the God’s Word and God’s Moral Values.
