Will The NEA Join The Antisemitic BDS Movemet?
If it were ever doubted, this week has offered proof positive that the work of PJTN grows more essential with each passing day.
In the past few days alone, we have been instrumental in bringing a national and international media spotlight in demanding the removal of Boca Raton Principal William Latson who openly cast doubt on the reality of the Holocaust. This blatant lie came from an “educator” entrusted with the minds of our children where state law requires Holocaust education and calls “Holocaust denial” illicit.
In a video message Wednesday, Palm Beach County School Superintendent Donald Fennoy stated, “I have lost confidence in Latson’s leadership. I removed him from his position as principal and now I am making a recommendation to the school board to not renew his contract.”
Today, I was in Winter Garden for a luncheon at the West Orange Republican Women’s Federation. My topics: "The Subversive Infiltration of Our Educational System, The Rise of the Antisemitic BDS Movement and the Unraveling of Our Constitutional Republic." I discussed this recent incident and how Common Core is fueling historical revisionism and Holocaust denial in American education.
And if that wasn’t enough, during the National Education Association’s (NEA) conference in Houston last week, members brought their version of historical revisionism to the floor for a vote on “New Business Item #26.” The proposed agenda item pushes to join the global choir of the antisemitic boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement by indoctrinating our public school children with propaganda stating:
The NEA will use digital communications and publish resources to educate Members and the general public on the apartheid, atrocities, and gross violations of human rights of Palestinian children and families by the State of Israel, funded directly by the United States. NEA will partner with the No Way to Treat Children Campaign to pressure the Israeli government to end the detention and abuse of Palestine children.
If you think this type of rhetoric is just being peddled by high school principals – think again! The NEA is the largest labor union and professional interest group in the US with over three million members. It represents public school teachers and other support personnel, faculty and staffers at colleges and universities, retired educators, and college students preparing to become teachers. This union’s impact indoctrinating generations of children in our country is staggering!
This information came to me by way of a concerned teacher within the organization. Please read this chilling manifesto below.
Houston… we have a problem.
Why was it even proposed? When does open hatred of Israel find a place within an educational organization whose stated mission is to “advocate for educational professionals and to unite membership to fulfill the promise of public education to prepare students to succeed…”
Radical minds are growing more emboldened and many are now preparing the lessons our children will be taught. With the start of a new school year close at hand, we must be vigilant, educated, activated and on the front lines as concerned citizens and parents. Antisemitism is an epidemic in our midst.
Proverbs 11:21, Though they join forces, the wicked will not go unpunished; But the posterity of the righteous will be delivered.
Whether it is a teacher at the NEA conference, or a parent inquiring about their schools Holocaust curriculum, in both of these situations, one person made the difference!
We will be launching a major media campaign demanding answers from the NEA leadership and mobilizing our PJTN Watchmen around the world to take a stand in their communities.
Please take the work at hand this week alone into consideration as you plan your most generous donation gift to the work of PJTN! The demands are great and we are small in staff numbers. To continue our global reach I need your financial support—and prayers!
Remember, you can become a PJTN Watchmen too. For just $20/month, you can help us stay on the frontlines and in the headlines to combat the alarming rise of antisemitism in our communities. We can’t do it without you!
God bless you and thank you for all you do on behalf of our Jewish brethren and all Israel.
