The Promise Of America Is. . . Socialism? That's exactly what is being taught in many American public schools.
Under the guise of teaching children to read, the seeds of Socialism are being planted within the minds of young children. Do you believe that the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States mandates the following?
The People's basic needs must be met in a country. Needs for housing, education, transportation, and health care overseen by our government system.
Those are the words being chanted over and over and over by school children around the country. They are part of an educational program called Building Fluency Through Practice and Performance. This section is called 'The Promise of America' and it breaks down the fifty-two word single sentence that is the Preamble. Here is the original:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Disguised as a reading exercise, the Preamble has been turned into a five page choral project with commentary planted inside this very simple sentence. Here is an example. Make note of what the children (R5, R6, & R7) are being asked to read after the words 'promote the general welfare':
People's basic needs must be met in a country.
Needs for housing, education, transportation and health care, overseen by our government system.
When did the Preamble or the Constitution include the government meeting the people's needs for housing, transportation and health care?
Instead of teaching the Preamble and Constitution as it is written, schools from coast to coast are indoctrinating children to Socialism thanks to a company called Teacher Created Materials. TCM sells 'The Promise of America' to thousands of school districts all across the country as well as over 100 countries around the world. Several phone calls to TCM, its' printing company Shell Education and New York City sales outlet Sussman Sales provided little specific data on just how many schools are currently using the 'Promise of America, ' but one company rep told The Blaze the "Fluency program is really really popular."
This kind of training is reminiscent of Soviet-style indoctrination and the recent stories leaking out of North Korea in the summer of 2009 when Kim Jong il was reportedly close to stepping down and handing over control to his son.
Dong-A Ilbo (the country's official newspaper) stated that North Korea notified its diplomatic offices and is teaching its people a song in praise of the anointed leader.
The North Korean school children started learning the song first. Indoctrination starts with the young ones.
A tip of the hat to the brave volunteer from the 9/12 Project, a teacher who sent us this shocking hand out.
