    Homeland Security Funded Exercise Portrayed Homeschoolers as Terrorists

    Can I wake up now? This nightmare called Obama and DHS is getting real old.

    RB, the actual ruling was favorable to homeschooling in this country, as it reaffirmed the right of US CITIZENS to educate their own children. What the issue in this case is whether the deprivation of this right of a foreigner in a foreign land, by foreign government, was one of the listed conditions created by Congress under which asylum may be granted. The court could not rule other than it did, most likely.

    The real issue is this case is this. What are we to make of a man, and his stooges, running the White House Red Bordello who, while pushing for amnesty and citizenship for 13 or more MILLION lawbreakers here illegally, and who has stopped efforts to deport them, yet goes out of his way to persecute and deport this family, because of animosity toward homeschooling? Moreover, a family that went through legal channels to obtain status. What kind of a person does this?

    This family followed the law and got hammered. The illegals break the law and get rewarded. What kind of a twisted monstrosity has this country become?

    DHS sees people who don't fit their mold, including homes choolers, to be a problem.
  4. Nachtnebel, I think you're conflating two homeschool stories here, but it's an interesting conflation. The government sees a pious, self-educated family of immigrants as a threat, but not the scores of uneducated law-breaking immigrants, over whom they can exert influence. The self-educated are difficult to control, and they are such a threat to our current rulers that they have turned them into boogey-men worthy of a terrorist scenario.

    Running in homeschool circles myself, I cannot fathom a homeschool family going postal on a school. The act of homeschooling is a declaration of independence from school: it is empowering and gratifying, a way more effective way to stick it to the school than violence. I've never met one of these mythical far right-wing homeschool families who would be prone to a violent attack in the name of homeschooling, but I'm willing to believe there may be a few nuts in the woods gone off their meds who might gets some crazy ideas. However, those types are seriously anomalous if they do exist, and should not be held up as an example possibility. The real possibility is that homeschoolers will raise a population of children who refuse to conform, resist brainwashing, and who will go out into the world as adults armed with their own powerful ideas that subvert the government paradigm.

    If everyone home-schooled and taught their children critical thinking and analytics, DHS and TSA would rapidly run out of candidates to "employ."

    We've seen from the events of the last few weeks exactly what Obama and his Thugs think of people who believe in Freedom, the Constitution, and the rule of Law.

    If you truly want to see the "future" of education in this country, Google "Common Core". That is Socialist/Communist indoctrination as the focus of "teaching" our children.
  9. I had a tinfoil hat lightbulb about this story -- the angry homeschool parents attacking the school in the DHS drill scenario may have been angry because in the government's dystopic scenario, homeschooling has been made illegal and the children have been forced, possibly at gunpoint, into government schooling. If that were the case, yes, I could see certain homeschool parents going postal.

    ETA: A more realistic possible scenario -- homeschooled children are taken from their home by CPS, parents get mad and attack the school. Pretty far-fetched, still, but not impossible.

    More likely, they go to the homes of the CPS kidnappers and light them up.
