«Members of the BDM later recalled that they welcomed the extra power they had over their parents. Hedwig Ertl recalled: "As a young person, you were taken seriously. You did things which were important... Your dependence on your parents was reduced, because all the time it was your work for the Hitler Youth that came first, and your parents came second... All the time you were kept busy and interested, and you really believed you had to change the world."»

yes, I posted my comment on one your links, the woke one, but it should have gone here really.

have your bad cat fingers pried open Eric Hoffer's 'The True Believer' 'thoughts on the nature of mass movements' published in 1951? I only started it this morning and already mind blown. Describes what is happening right now so well.

just as a teaser...

"Chapter 9

The less justified a man is in claiming excellence for his own self, the more ready is he to claim all excellence for his nation, his religion, his race or his holy cause."

that's it, the whole chapter.

"Chapter 10

A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind of his own meaningless affairs by minding other people's business.

This minding of other people's business expresses itself in gossip, snooping and meddling. and also in feverish interest in communal, national and racial affairs. In running away from ourselves we either fall on our neighbour's shoulder or fly at his throat."

A rough ride indeed. Tragically, they have no idea, which will make it all the more devastating once the potholes and cliffs begin to bite.

One question: How did we so benignly and willingly allow the corruption to take control every single important institution that made this the uniquely great nation it became? Government and every instrument of power it controls. Education. Free Press. Healthcare. Even much of free enterprise. We just didn’t pay attention.

I wish you'd omitted the first sentence. It's the main reason I don't want to forward this widely, because that's NOT what high school is about.

Godlessness. Remove the divine sovereignty from education and fail to teach the law cause-and-effect, and then zero male leadership in the home, Or fatherlessness all together...boom, result

Ted Wheeler already found out you can't control the Red Guard. Sounds like these teachers are learning the same lesson. How many more people have to live it before they will speak out?

the root is cultural marxism, hiding behind the soft sounding theme of "post modernism". the object like amo, lenin, and ho used is to convince them that post modern insists the old regime is evil.

the easily mislead become easily offended.

understands their object is no less than a bezos friendly red guard assault on the republic..... who who cares nothing for the frankfurt school brand of authoritarian marxism

Ever read "Wild Swans" by Jung Chang?

Just like this. Kids were biggest drivers of the Red Guard movement.
