I’m really starting to get more and more concerned about how people on the secular left view other people’s children. And how they view the parents of those children. Here are a couple of news stories from Thursday that show what’s causing my concern.
First, here’s Biden’s Secretary of Education saying that parents should not be a “primary stakeholder” in their kids’ education:
Meanwhile, in Virginia, the Democrat governor says “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach”.
Meanwhile, leftist school boards want parents to be treated as “domestic terrorists”.
The Federalist reports:
The leftist National School Boards Association is begging President Joe Biden to use domestic terrorism laws to target parents who oppose anti-science mask mandates for children and the infiltration of racist curriculum in schools.
In a letter sent on Wednesday, NSBA asked the Biden administration and federal law enforcement to “deal with the growing number of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation.”
“Now, we ask that the federal government investigate, intercept, and prevent the current threats and acts of violence against our public school officials through existing statutes, executive authority, interagency and intergovernmental task forces, and other extraordinary measures to ensure the safety of our children and educators, to protect interstate commerce, and to preserve public school infrastructure and campuses,” the letter states.
NSBA said local and state law enforcement agencies are already working to “prevent further disruptions to educational services and school district operations,” but that “these threats and acts of violence have become more prevalent” and require assistance from federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Justice, FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and the Secret Service.
Now, I’ve written before about how unionized school teachers give almost all of their political contributions to Democrats, and that’s because Democrats give them maximum autonomy from the parents of those children. They don’t want to be accountable to parents who expect their children to learn useful things, and get jobs.
Here are the top 20 recipients of political contributions from teacher unions, according to Open Secrets:

Notice anything? That’s right, there’s not a single Republican in the list. And that holds true when you filter for only Senators, and only Representatives, too.
So, what do I learn from this? Two things.
First, conservative Christian men should be very careful about dating or marrying unionized teachers. It’s not unusual to see Christian men have their values changed, and their influence diminished, because they married “Christian” teachers. We just had two Christian men leave the company that I am currently with, who married left-wing teachers. In both cases, those men were opposed to Trump. Their wives made them do it. Every single Christian man I know who married a teacher has had to either become liberal, or act like a liberal, in order to keep peace in his house. It’s just too risky to try, unless the person is reading Thomas Sowell, Stephen C. Meyer, Michael Licona, Michael Behe, etc. I know there are male teachers who read conservative books so they can resist peer pressure, but I’ve never met a female one.
Second, conservative men cannot trust schools with unionized teachers to teach their children. From the very beginning of your education, you should be thinking about what kind of job you can do where you will be insulated from the dogmas of the secular left. Do not let secular leftists have veto power over how you earn a living. My recommendation is to go into some trade or STEM career where you can earn a living. Small companies are better than big ones, and being a freelance consultant is best of all. Why? Because you will have to keep your wife home to homeschool the children, and that costs money. You’ll have to be thinking about money earlier than your father did, because while they could trust the schools, you can’t. You have to have a different plan.
