Coming in a close second in STUPIDITY to CoNN’s assertion that you cannot tell the gender of a baby at birth is this recent approval (unanimously I might add) of a California school curriculum that approves chanting to Aztec gods, those who demanded human sacrifice…are we completely mad?
‘Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble’
California’s Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multimillion-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state’s largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation.POLL: What scares you the most?
According to National Review, the curriculum is “probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world.”
On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it “the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report.”
Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:
Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed “theocide” against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by “coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide,” and the “explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity.” But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by “countergenocide,” which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the “regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity.”
Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be “warriors” for “social justice.” Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking “healing epistemologies” and “a revolutionary spirit.” Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for “liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization,” after which students shout “Panche beh! Panche beh!” in pursuit of ultimate “critical consciousness.”
Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of Aztec worship traditions, which California’s educators and administrators seek to “regenerate,” including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.
“Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about ‘oppression’,” Glenn said sardonically.
“Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble,” he added. “We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I’ve ever seen before … because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake.”
