Government-controlled schools are moving further and further away from the traditional education of reading, writing, and arithmetic.
Academia is instead moving closer and closer to outright indoctrination and activist training.
And now this government school’s vigil for one brutal dictator will make you sick to your stomach.
Honoring the monsters of world history
Democrats and their woke left-wing outrage mob minions have a bad habit of tributing terrible people.
Recently, a TikTok trend emerged in which young woke extremists praised Osama Bin Laden and openly agreed with his justifications for the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, even though he orchestrated the brutal murder of nearly 3,000 Americans, and also called for the elimination of all Jewish people.
For years now, many woke extremists have also sported tee-shirts with a big picture of Che Guevara front and center.
Guevara ordered the murder of thousands of innocent Cubans, and suppressed representative government in his country during his quest to establish socialism.
And now, a school in Washington state is honoring a Che contemporary.
A candlelight vigil for Fidel Castro
Shoreline High School on the pacific coast of Washington recently held an assembly meant to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
However, according to local radio reporter Jason Rantz, the assembly added another honoree to the ceremony, and it isn’t sitting well with many parents.
On Rantz’ radio show on KTTH, he reported that Fidel Castro was celebrated as a “social justice champion” and “martyr for civil rights.”
In reality, Castro was a ruthless dictator who used mass-murder firing squads, even against minors.
Perhaps the activist educators at the school should talk to Cuban immigrants, who fled Castro’s Cuba to escape the “socialist utopia” they claim he created.
The school claims they also referred to Castro as a “problematic” historical figure.
However, Rantz has obtained slides from the presentation that prove otherwise.
During the candlelight vigil, Castro appeared alongside MLK, Nelson Mandella, and even Emmett Till, who at the age of 14 was abducted, tortured, and lynched in Mississippi in 1955 for the color of his skin.
Of course, Castro was not a martyr, he died a peaceful death of natural causes.
The vigil script described Castro as “a figure whose impact on Cuba and the world is undeniable,” and that he “challenged imperialistic influences.”
“As the leader of the Cuban Revolution in 1959, Castro aimed to uplift his people by overthrowing the Batista regime and ushering in a new era of social justice,” the script read. “His policies in healthcare and education significantly improved the standard of living for many Cubans, and his politics promoted antiracism.”
There was no mention of Castro’s mass murders, human rights abuses, and political suppression to be found in the vigil script.
The script went on to criticize the United States for opposing Castro and his brutal regime.
“There were Many failed Attempts [sic] to overthrow his regime,” the script read. “He actually has the most survived assassination attempts of any world leader.”
Parents waking up to the problems with government-run schools
According to Rantz, some parents complained to school officials about the presentation but they “brushed them off.”
If this is what now passes as “education” in America’s government-controlled schools, it’s no wonder homeschooling is on the rise across the country.
According to the Urban Institute, during the COVID pandemic, there was a 30% increase in homeschooling in the United States.
Meanwhile, a Household Pulse Survey found that about 5.5% of students nationwide are now homeschooled.
And the trend just continues to grow.
