Public schools have become yet another front in the islamization of America. University and college campuses have long been compromised and bought off with jihad millions. Now grade schools, junior and senior high schools are in the sights of the enemy.
Common Core proselytizes for Islam, and the real history of jihadi wars, land appropriations, annihilations and enslavements is scrubbed from school textbooks. High schools offer senior electives called “Islam and the Modern World,” requiring students to purchase the notorious Islamic apologist John Esposito’s The Straight Path.
But there are great kids out there who are fighting the good fight. Here is one such story from a really great kid who wrote me, “Today, the students took a stand. Today, the civilized men and women won a small yet meaningful victory against the savages. Once again, I need to thank you for the heavy influence you have had on my life. Your articles have taught me to be vigilant against such inhumane acts, and take actions against them. Following the events of the day, I recommended all of my classmates to follow your website. We simply need more Pamela Gellers in this world.”
This past Thursday, the administrators of my high school, The Rivers School in Weston, MA, decided that the school should carry on with its day as if it were any other Thursday. Instead of having an all school moment of silence at our flag pole after our first period class, a ceremony which the school has conducted the past several years I have been at Rivers, the administrators decided to follow our typical Thursday schedule. The commemoration of the day was to be left to the discretion of each grade dean during their respective homeroom periods. It came to my attention that the plan for my homeroom was for my grade dean to read statistics regarding 9/11 in between regular homeroom announcements. On my way to my first period class, I overheard two faculty members discussing the day’s lack of a formal commemoration. When I got to my class, I voiced my irritation to my classmates, and we all condemned the administration’s lack of respect for the importance of the anniversary of 9/11. As a class, we came to the conclusion that if the administrators were unwilling to formally acknowledge the day, we as students would do so ourselves. Through social media and word of mouth, my classmates and I informed as many people as possible to meet us at the flagpole following homeroom, which was to be held after first period. In a mere fifteen minutes, we managed to get the entire student body, and all but a few members of the faculty, to join us in our remembrance of 9/11/2001 and 9/11/2012 (Benghazi). However, the audacity of our administrators did not stop there. Several hours later, my classmates and I noticed that the school posted a picture on their Facebook page of everyone around the flagpole. As if to take credit for the event, the caption of the picture included “#neverforget”. On the contrary, if it were not for the student body, Rivers would not have formally acknowledged the date at all, which is disgusting considering two Rivers alumni were victims of the 9/11 attack in 2001.
