Who said this? "Allegiance to a nation is the biggest stumbling block to 
the creation of international government. National boundaries and the 
concept of sovereignty must be abolished. The quickest way to do this is 
to condition the young to another and broader alliance. Opinion 
favorable to international government will be developed in the social 
studies curriculum in the public schools." Were those the words of an 
Alger Hiss, or some other well-known traitor to America? No, they were 
from a handbook for teachers published by the National Education 
Association, also known as the NEA for short. 

And who said this? "Conditioning is a process which may be employed by 
the teacher to build up attitudes in the child and predispose him to the 
action by which those attitudes are expressed." Were those words taken 
from a Communist course book on brainwashing? No, that sage advice is 
from the Yearbook of the National Education Association. 

And who said this? "Education should and can be made a force to equalize 
the conditions of men." Could it have been those well-known equalitarian 
idealists Marx or Lenin? No, that was from the Secretary's Report of the 
National Education Association right here in the USA. 

You may be starting to get the point, but here's one more quote for you 
- where do these words of wisdom come from? "What if teachers don't want 
power? Organize the ones who do. The building of a power base needs a 
leader, who is initially more important than the number of people you 
have behind him. Among others, Martin Luther King, Ho Chi Minh, and 
Fidel Castro suggest the wisdom of this advice. [Train your] people by 
making the other side insult or assault your people so that they can 
learn what the other side is really like. ...getting the [school] 
superintendent to insult or to assault your people is regarded as of 
higher value than ten weeks of formal training. It is hard to deal with 
an enemy with whom you have a personal relationship. You should not let 
your people fraternize with the enemy." Sounds like it comes from a 
revolutionary Marxist training manual, doesn't it? It's actually from a 
official report to the NEA by one Saul Alinsky. 

Most Americans do not know what is going on in the public school 
classrooms of this country. They complain that property taxes are too 
high, yes, and they are perplexed when a massive bureaucracy and 
billions upon billions in public school funding produce not young 
scholars but illiterate drug-abusing criminals and delinquents. But 
sadly, most of us irresponsibly throw up our hands and hope that 
"someone else" will solve these problems for us - that "someone else" 
usually meaning teachers, politicians, educational bureaucrats, "whoever 
is in charge." We hope for the best and trust the politicians' promises 
because we feel intimidated by the size of the problems and by our own 
lack of expertise and knowledge in the field of education. Due to this 
irresponsibility on our part a almost an entire generation has been 
denied a proper education. The situation is getting so bad in many major 
cities that to send your child to a public school is tantamount to child 
abuse. Is it surprising that even such an eager booster of the education 
establishment as Bill Clinton, (who made a promise to send his daughter, 
Chelsea, to a public school) when confronted with the grim realities of 
the hellhole that the DC public schools have become, quietly enrolled 
her in an exclusive private school? 

Little John or little Jane are, in some jurisdictions, more likely to be 
hooked on dope than on the classics of English literature, more likely 
to learn the brutal reality of rape than the subtleties of the calculus, 
more likely to be assaulted than instructed - and when they are 
instructed, it will more than likely be in how to use a condom, how to 
fight for "gay rights," and how to be a good citizen of the New World 
Order. 

Americans desperately need to become informed and involved in their 
children's education. A beginning of a hopeful trend is the "home 
schooling" movement. A small but growing group of American parents are 
abandoning the public schools as hopelessly incapable of providing their 
children with a decent education. How right they are. Behind the shiny 
glass windows and angular, ugly architecture of the modern American 
public school there is occurring a betrayal of our American heritage and 
values, and a subversion of our nation that would shock you to your 
knees, if only you knew about it. Since the Liberal news media tell us 
very little, most Americans remain ignorant. What I am going to tell you 
today is only a small part of the story of the takeover of the public 
schools by the enemies of America, but it is a crucial part. If I 
succeed in inspiring you to get involved in the fight to take back 
America's schools from those who have stolen them from us, then I will 
have achieved my goal. 

On 16th Street in Washington, DC stand the offices of an organization 
called the National Education Association, or NEA for short. The NEA was 
founded in 1857 by a group of 43 teachers. For many years it was merely 
a professional association of teachers, acting in many ways like a labor 
union and fighting for the economic interests of its members, though 
often clothing its agenda with high-sounding rhetoric about "fighting 
for an equal opportunity for all children," etc. For approximately the 
first fifty years of its existence, the NEA had a reputation as a 
relatively decent and benign institution. 

The NEA represents itself today as a professional association and much 
more - as an "education lobby." Now that all sounds very fine, doesn't 
it? After all, who could be against education? 

Ladies and gentlemen, I am here to tell you that the NEA is a massively 
funded and powerful organization with effective control over teachers 
and public education in this country, with its tentacles reaching deeply 
into the education bureaucracy in Washington and into your wallet and 
mine; and it is an organization which is firmly dedicated to the 
conversion of this country into a province in a one-world government, a 
New World Order in which the independence of the United States would 
cease to exist and in which the American people would become an 
insignificant and powerless minority. 

How did the radical transformation of this organization take place? 

Let me quote from The Siecus Circle, published in 1977, by Claire 
Chambers: 

"Recognizing the organization's potential for exerting tremendous 
pressure and influence on American education, the ...socialist complex 
wasted no time in seizing control of the NEA; this it accomplished as 
far back as the early 1900's. Early NEA leaders who strove for a 
one-world ...order included such ...Communist fronters as John Dewey and 
William Heard Kilpatrick. Harold Rugg and Marxist professor George S. 
Counts... were among the NEA teacher-leaders whose writings helped steer 
the leftward course of this organization in the early 1930's. 

By maneuvering converts into top administrative positions, [these] 
master planners gained control of the NEA." 

At roughly the same time, the then National Chairman of the Communist 
Party, USA, William Z. Foster, in his book, Toward A Soviet America, 
wrote that education could advance the revolution best if centrally 
controlled and organized under a federal Department of Education. Foster 
said that the Department of Education "should be revolutionized, 
cleansed of religious, patriotic and other features of the bourgeois 
ideology. The students will be taught on the basis of Marxian 
dialectical materialism, internationalism, and the general ethics of the 
new Socialist society." 

Is it merely a coincidence that the NEA fought for decades to establish 
just such a federal Department of Education, as envisaged by Communist 
William Z. Foster? Their efforts paid off in 1977 when Jimmy Carter, in 
return for NEA support in the 1976 election, created the DOE. The DOE 
bureaucracy has been since its inception heavily interlocked with that 
of the NEA. 

But surely, you may say, our Department of Education and the NEA are not 
promoting the internationalism and anti-Americanism proposed by William 
Z. Foster! Judge for yourself the motives of the NEA, as I read to you 
from the NEA publication, Today's Education, the March- April 1976 
issue, part of an article entitled "A Declaration of Interdependence" by 
long-time world government proponent Henry Steele Commager: 

"Now we must join with others to bring forth a New World Order. It is 
essential that mankind free itself from the limitations of national 
prejudice. All people are part of one global community. We call upon all 
nations to strengthen and sustain the United Nations and its specialized 
agencies, and other institutions of world order..." 

The fact that the NEA published this treasonous trash in the 
Bicentennial year of American Independence is an insult to every 
patriot. I say that the NEA's "Declaration of Interdependence" is in 
complete opposition to our Declaration of Independence. The one-world 
agenda of this organization is a direct threat to our national and 
individual freedom. 

Columnist Russell Evans wrote in 1983: 

"A big wheel in the machinery of the proposed New World Order is the 
National Education Association, now enjoying its crowning achievement: 
the Cabinet-level Department of Education. In the master plan for this 
New World Order, a scheme that is frightening more and more Americans, 
it appears that the NEA wants to control education. ...this is [part of] 
an insidious global machine designed to crush our national sovereignty." 


In 1937, in its 15th Yearbook, the NEA itself declared that: 

"The present capitalistic and nationalistic school system has been 
supplanted in but one place - Russia - and that change was effected by 
revolution. Hence the verdict of history would seem to indicate that we 
are likely to have to depend upon revolution for social change of an 
important and far-reaching character." 

How was it possible for such an anti-American and frankly Marxist agenda 
to be espoused by America's largest professional association of teachers 
- for decades - without sparking outrage and resistance on a massive 
scale from parents and the many good and decent teachers? 

For one thing, part of the responsibility must lie at our own feet; for 
it is our money- consciousness, our materialism, our essential 
conservatism, and our desire to "get along" and "not rock the boat" that 
all too often paralyzes Americans when faced with a revolutionary enemy. 
We always try to sense which way the wind is blowing and are always 
careful not to say or do anything which might get us branded as 
politically incorrect. Unfortunately, the media arbiters of what is and 
what is not politically correct are the allies of the NEA and the other 
enemies of America. Additionally, we Americans don't like to believe 
that we have any domestic enemies. We like to believe that all our 
institutions and leaders are just fine and dandy, thank you, in need of 
a little fine-tuning perhaps, but essentially sound. We find it almost 
impossible to accept the fact that powerful alien forces have literally 
taken over large parts of both the public and private sectors in this 
country. We have an obsessive need to believe that "everything's all 
right." To believe otherwise would mean that we had a responsibility to 
face up to this extremely frightening and dangerous situation and do 
something about it. And the media, of course, do everything they can to 
encourage this "everything's all right" delusion. They tell us that 
"Communism is dead." What they don't tell us is that the forces that 
created Communism are still very much alive, under different names, and 
are still doing their deadly work, right here in America. For all 
practical purposes, these leftist revolutionaries meet almost no 
resistance from the money-centered, sheep-like citizens of the USA. 
They're a little bit like bank robbers who arrive on the scene to find 
all the security guards watching television in the basement with the 
safe unlocked and unguarded. 

Another element in the amazing phenomenon of American non-resistance to 
the theft of our children's minds is the fact that the schemers who plan 
to turn our country into a Third World province of their world 
government were rising to power all over American society in the 1930's, 
not just in the educational establishment. With the accession to power 
of Franklin Roosevelt, the federal government threw out the welcome mat 
to secret and even open Communists at every level and department. These 
same alien forces were also at that time consolidating their power in 
the news and entertainment media, and all of these parts of the alien 
anti-American coalition cooperated closely in covering each other's 
tracks and in diverting the attention of Americans to trivialities or 
imagined overseas threats, just as they do today. 

What do the NEA and their allies want? They want power - absolute power 
as their number one goal. This is the real motivation behind their push 
for the "consolidation" of local school districts, which mimimizes the 
influence of parents and local school boards on educational decision- 
making. Their desire for total power is also what sends them into a 
state of near-frenzy on those rare occasions when parents have demanded 
the removal of obscene or subversive textbooks. You see, parents not 
wanting their children to read anti-American propaganda or homosexual 
smut is "censorship," whereas the NEA's rewriting of American history 
and editing of Western literature to fit in with the "multicultural" 
agenda is "academic freedom." They will talk a nice line to an audience 
of parents, and a very different one in their own conclaves and 
publications, a few of which I've quoted today. Do they consciously want 
to destroy education in this country? Surprisingly, although they seem 
to be doing just that, I doubt it. I just don't think that the leaders 
of the NEA care very much about the education of our children. It is 
their quest for political power and their leftist, New World Order 
political agenda that they care about. They want to brainwash our 
children into a multicultural, one-world mold. They care little for 
reading, writing, or mathematics; and they see traditional civics, 
English literature, Western Art, and American History as "racist" and 
"Eurocentric." 

The NEA's agenda for our children is this: Our children must be prepared 
for a world government by the year 2000. All pride of race or 
nationality must be destrby the year 2000. All pride of race or 
nationality must be destroyed, as counter to this goal. Unrestricted 
immigration and integration into the classroom of millions from the 
ghetto and the Third World must be encouraged, not out of any pretended 
concern for poor or oppressed peoples, but to dilute and eventually to 
erase our national identity as a people. Our children must be taught 
that traditional American moral standards and values, the heritage of 
our founding fathers, are outdated and repressive. Students must learn 
that homosexuality is normal and even desirable. Students will learn 
that the traditional family is a holdover from an earlier, oppressive 
age, and that today they are "free to choose" "alternative lifestyles" 
like sodomy, lesbianism, or worse. The value system of the self-styled 
left

My friends, if you are skeptical about what I am saying, I urge you to 
carefully read the textbooks - all the textbooks that are now being used 
in your local public schools. You will find that the NEA has kept the 
promise of its slogan of several years ago: That slogan was "All Books 
Over 5 Years Old Must Go!" Attend school board meetings and hearings, 
become an activist for our children. You will find that these change 
agents in our public schools hate and abhor traditional education, moral 
decency, and American patriotism. You will find that you are put on 
their enemies list if you try to restore those values and standards. 

Dear listeners, do you want your precious son or daughter to be taught 
that homosexual perversion is acceptable behavior? Do you want your 
little girl or little boy to be taught that the end of American 
independence and our submersion into a "New World Order" is desirable 
and good? Do you want your children to be told that the founding fathers 
of this country were wicked bigots and criminals? If you do want those 
things, then you need do nothing. The bureaucrats at the NEA are taking 
care of business just fine. If, however, you don't want to see America's 
children indoctrinated to accept a future as serfs in a multicultural, 
Third World America - and if you'd like to see the traditional patriotic 
nature and academic standards of American education restored - then you 
need to join together with your fellow patriots and work for a brighter 
future for our nation and people.
