Liberating The Children?

The New York Post ran a story yesterday alerting parents and people who love kids that a new public school curriculum that glorifies Alexandra Ocasio Cortez and her far-left "squad" knocks religion, misquotes and misuses Jesus, and mocks Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and is already being distributed to libraries in advance of its reveal in public classrooms this fall.

The book titled, "What You Don't Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood" is the first of a menu of similar materials categorized as "Universal Mosaic Curriculum."

Be informed, not misled.

The book.

The book is intended for 10 and 11-year-olds according to The Post.

The book, “What You Don’t Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood,” and its related materials, is supposed to kick off next school year.

The picture book centers on a black child who talks about fitting in at school and church and a friend “who’s queer like me.”

The boy, named Demetrius, is shown in a church where he says, “Churches can preach all they want about love — the only thing that I feel when I’m here is shame.”

The boy then has a conversation with Jesus, who appears, He is apparently a Democrat---who tells him "everyone is invited to love and be loved." The distressed-looking boy points to an unnamed white man---a McConnell look-a-like---and says, "Even---?" Jesus replies, "Yes."

The author of the book, Anastasia Higginbotham, in a reading of the book on YouTube confirms the unnamed white man is, indeed, McConnell and they are at a Catholic church.

The virtue, the storyteller claims, is if the child understands even people as bad as McConnell are invited to love and be loved considering all the harm he is doing, anyone can be accepted.  

While the book, said to be a tool to liberate children, heaps praise on socialist AOC, the narrative later goes on to preach that “We will rewrite the rules we live by and love the world into balance,” accompanied by an illustration of the boy watching television with his parents. Depicted on the TV screen, and named in the book, are “U.S. Representatives Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.”

The book is part of a larger body of materials that are being made available to schools and libraries under the name of  "Mosiac."

The reaction.

As expected, the reaction by many parents who are aware of the materials is negative. But most parents are not aware of this latest assault on their child. One mom said shaking her head, "It's a horrible book."

The author who has also written another companion type book titled, "Not My Idea" about a child who connects to the opportunity and their responsibility to dismantle white supremacy says, “I never expected people who cling to the oppressive, dying institutions of patriarchy and white supremacy to like that book.” 

Former NYC Mayor DeBlassio funded the project while in office. He's gone now, but the project has been birthed. And it will be distributed and promoted nationwide to whoever will take it. 

Among other titles is a book called "The Bell Rang" for kindergarteners to discuss slavery, and "I'm Not A Girl," which is about transgenderism targeting first graders.

Another controversial book on the Mosaic list that is concerning is "Our Skin" which is geared toward those aged 2 to 5-years-old and blames the idea of racism on white people. It's already appearing on some suggested reading lists.

Although these materials are not yet part of a "prescribed" curriculum, this is always the path from conception to placement in a "prescribed" curriculum. 

Higginbotham told the Post that the book is about "boundless love and the divinity of everything."

"Love wins" and pantheism is the new world religion.

The future.

A council in London has claimed that babies as young as three months old are racially biased, a report has uncovered.

Islington Council in London has, in the past, published claims that babies as young as three months old can show racial bias, demanding that extremely young children should be talked to about the issue of “race”.


According to a report published on Saturday, one of the councils to avail itself of the diversity training services provided by the so-called Black Nursery Manager consultancy also previously claimed that babies as young as three months old could be racially biased towards their own caregivers.

Appearing in a post originally uploaded by an account associated with the Islington Council in 2021, the claim appeared alongside another which said that “white children are strongly biased in favor of whiteness” by the time they turn five years old, as well as a link to material produced by the state-owned BBC on how to talk to toddlers about race.

The Takeaway

In his inaugural address on January 5, 1967, newly elected California Governor Ronald Reagan said, 

"Perhaps you and I have lived too long with this miracle to properly be appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and it's never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by way of inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people.  And those in world history who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."

The assault on freedom always begins with an assault on the family---particularly the child. 

The Greek philosopher Aristotle said, "Give me a child until he is 7 and I will show you the man."

Vladimir Lenin was a big fan of controlling the child. He once said Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever."

He also said, often, "Give me just one generation of youth, and I'll transform the whole world."

This is why the Bible so strongly teaches us that we are to "Train up a child in the way he should go..."
