As part of the Common Core curriculum, fifth graders are taught the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Unsurprisingly, to those of us playing at home, it trumps the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. By these teaching standards, the United States is no longer sovereign, in any way , shape or form, just at the member nations of the UN would like things to be.
One young fifth grader brought home her aced exam, on which she had answered:
“Human rights are rights articulated by the government to uphold this country in shape. These rules are inalienable. They protect our country. The human rights are one of the most important rights ever. I think they hold this country together.”
To Britt’s surprise, the teacher gave full credit for that answer, which contradicts the Declaration of Independence, which states that individual rights derive from God, not government.
If rights are derived from the government, then it is reasonable to assume they can be rightfully taken away by the government. The government gives and the government takes away! (Except under the US Constitution, which is why we so laud it, and why young men placed themselves in harm’s way to defend it.)
If this is should come true in our country, as our children are being taught, then the IRS targeting of private citizens because of their political beliefs is not only reasonable, but necessary. How dare you question the authority that gives you the right to life, health, food, clothing and happiness, among countless other UN-annointed “human rights”? It certainly raises the government to the level of a deity, something government, in general strives for. But this kind of deity is petty and cruel, controlling and vindictive. Will you teach your child to worship at the altar of this new god? Or will you stand up and fight this power grab? Call out Common Core for what it is – indoctrination of our children to become good little servants of the state. At least under God they still have a choice. Once the state takes over, kiss your choices goodbye.
