Immigrant children fresh from Central and South America, the Caribbean and China are now being taught at a Boston public school that assassinating people you don’t like is sometimes appropriate in order to resist “oppression.”
Humanities teachers at Charlestown High School who are part of the Sheltered English Immersion program are reportedly telling ninth- and tenth-grade students in the program that they need to “critically examine when certain forms of resistance might be appropriate,” one of them being assassination of political figures.
The website of the Boston Teachers Union (BTU) contains curriculum documents outlining “notes and assignments around oppression, resistance, and narrative structure,” which include “detailed note-taking sheets and powerpoints [sic] on institutional, interpersonal, and internalized oppression.”
Instead of teaching these children new to America about our nation’s history, as well as how to read and write, employees at Charlestown High School are telling them about three different types of oppression: “Instituional [sic],” “Interpresonal [sic],” and “Internalized” – only one of these three words actually being spelled correctly on the worksheets.
One listed example of oppression at the institutional level is “Trump builds a wall on the border so it is harder for Latinos to enter the U.S.” One example of interpersonal oppression is “A husband tells his wife she must stay home to cook and clean.”
As for internalized oppression, one example used is “An Asian girl hates her eyes, she thinks she is ugly so she gets surgery to change them.”
Former teacher says she’s “disgusted” by these worksheets
After reading these examples, the students were then told to come up with their own examples based on the samples, as well as solutions including boycotts, sit-ins, petitions and other “peaceful protest” methods.
Also presented were examples of violent forms of revolt, including riots with masked protesters throwing projectiles, people fighting and political assassinations, the latter of which was presented alongside an image of President Richard Nixon in crosshairs.
The first thing these students learning English as a second language (ESL) are being told upon entry into the United States is that the country is oppressive and that assassination is one way to respond to that oppression.
“These English language learners [in these classrooms] are likely new immigrants to the country, coming to this country to experience freedom, [but in Boston] they’ve run smack dab into Marxist indoctrinators posing as educators,” warns Rebecca Friedrichs, the founder of the advocacy group For Kids & Country.
Also the author of “Standing up to Goliath: Battling State and National Teachers’ Unions for the Heart and Soul of our Kids and Country,” Friedrichs, who worked as a teacher for 28 years, says she is “disgusted” by what she saw on these worksheets, calling the material “damaging and dangerous.”
“Schools are meant for educating children, not indoctrinating them in radical ideology,” she added in a statement. (Related: America’s public schools are also indoctrinating students to become transgenders.)
Award-winning international journalist and executive director of the advocacy group Public School Exit Alex Newman agrees. He says that the material at Charlestown High School is “clearly designed to indoctrinate children into seeing themselves as victims of oppression.”
“They seem to be promoting revolt and resistance to legitimate forms of authority,” he told The Epoch Times, pointing specifically to the idea that the way to deal with oppression is to “overthrow” it.
“Legitimate authorities must be brought down if they want to impose new authorities,” Newman added, defending the status quo. This “indoctrination program,” as he called it, is “an extension of that same lawless agenda.”
