It’s been said, “eternal vigilance is the price we pay for liberty.” While Leftists and Democrats (I repeat myself) target something called Christian Nationalism (which they get to define) and how such a movement is fascist and anti-Democratic, real fascism is being implemented right under our noses.

The Foundation For Freedom Online reports that a recently uncovered “Disinformation Primer” authored by USAID’s Center on Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance (DRG) has exposed the agency’s overt endorsement of private sector censorship strategies and proposed additional censorship practices and techniques. The 97-page document, obtained through litigation against the U.S. Department of State by the public interest law firm America First Legal (AFL), lays bare USAID’s concerted efforts to influence technology companies, media organizations, education ministries, national governments, and funding bodies to adopt censorship measures.

This is called “projection,” accusing the opposition of things they are doing. It’s a neat propaganda trick. In reality, our government is working behind the scenes to eliminate any ideological competition while accusing Christians and political conservatives of doing the same. It’s been done before.

In Mein Kampf Hitler stressed “the importance of winning over and then training the youth in the service ‘of a new national state.’”[1]

“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ he said in a speech on November 6, 1933, “I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already…. What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’” And on May 1, 1937, he declared, “This new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.”[2]

Educational control was taken away from the parents and local authorities and “Every person in the teaching profession, from kindergarten through the universities, was compelled to join the National Socialist Teachers’ League which, by law, was held `responsible for the execution of the ideological and political co-ordination of all the teachers in accordance with the National Socialist doctrine.’”[3] The State was to be supported “without reservation” and teachers took an oath to “be loyal and obedient to Adolf Hitler.”[4]

The Nazi worldview was comprehensive. The goal of Hitler was to remake the social and moral climate in the image of the Nazi worldview. “In Germany there was Nazi truth, a Nazi political truth, a Nazi economic truth, a Nazi social truth, a Nazi religious truth, to which all institutions had to subscribe or be banished.”[5]

Neutrality was never an option for Hitler. In fact, neutrality is an impossibility. All competing worldviews had to be eliminated. Under the leadership of Alfred Rosenberg, an outspoken pagan, “the Nazi regime intended eventually to destroy Christianity in Germany.”[6] Martin “Bormann, one of the men closest to Hitler, said publicly in 1941, ‘National Socialism and Christianity are irreconcilable.’”[7] While we hear a great deal about the suppression of Jewish thought, little attention is given to Nazism’s most formidable rival—Christianity. War correspondent William L. Shirer wrote, “We know now what Hitler envisioned for the German Christians: the utter suppression of their religion.”[8] The internal intelligence agency of the Nazi SS “regarded organized Christianity as one of the major obstacles to the establishment of a truly totalitarian state.”[9]

A confidential U.S. government report that was prepared for the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg documents how the Nazis wanted to “take over the churches from within, using party sympathizers. Discredit, jail or kill Christian leaders. And re-indoctrinate the congregants. Give them a new faith—in German’s Third Reich.” The ultimate goal was to “eliminate Christianity.” A 120-page report titled ‘The Nazi Master Plan: The Persecution of the Christian Churches’—was prepared by the Office of Strategic Services, a forerunner of the CIA. The OSS document reported in 1945:

Important leaders of the National Socialist party would have liked to meet this situation [church influence] by complete extirpation of Christianity and the substitution of a purely racial religion…. The best evidence now available as to the existence of an anti-Church plan is to be found in the systematic nature of the persecution itself…. Different steps in that persecution, such as the campaign for the suppression of denominational and youth organizations, the campaign against denominational schools, the defamation campaign against the clergy, started on the same day in the whole area of the Reich … and were supported by the entire regimented press, by Nazi Party meetings, by traveling party speakers.[10]

The tactics of secularists: What the Left could not accomplish through riots, burned cities, the disruption of the courts, the shutdown of major universities, and a few well-placed bombs, they now achieve through legislation empowered by powerful voting blocks, intimidating social reforms, and well-placed media elites. The leftist agenda of the 1960s has been firmly planted, from the schoolhouse to the White House.

Although the right gained some important political victories in the 1980s and early 1990s, it failed to transform the opportunities opened up by this position of state power into dislodging the Left from its dominance of university humanities and social science departments and the more intellectual side of journalism, film, and broadcasting. In terms of richness and innovative quality of cultural theory and impact on the educated middle class, the story of the Left since the mid-1960s has been one of broad and persistent success. A century after the death of Karl Marx, his intellectual progeny, in various shades of red and pink, are entrenched as never before in the academic, intellectual, and media circles of the Western world.[11]

While this ideological overhaul was taking place, Christians and political conservatives believed they could fix the one institution they could control: education. We could have removed our children from government schools en masse. This would have transformed American society from the bottom up. Not only were the educational fascists indoctrinating multiple generations, we were forced to pay for it in the name of “free public education.”

Whoever Controls the Schools Rules the World

Whoever Controls the Schools Rules the World

Whoever Controls the Schools Rules the World shows how education can be used as a vehicle for social change from Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler to secular humanism and radical Islam. Our worldview opponents understand that education is where the war of ideas is fought. If Christians are serious about securing the future for our children, they must understand the nature of the war we are fighting. If you have children, want children, or know someone who has children -- you need to get this book and read it before it becomes too late to save the generation to follow us from the ruins.
