New Movie force feeds green socialism to children in schools (The story of stuff)
MAINESTATEGOP ^ | 1/16/09 | MAINESTATEGOP

Posted on 01/16/2010 1:15:30 PM PST by mainestategop

A new Movie is being displayed in Public schools (communist indoctrination centers.) And your children have no choice but to sit down and watch it whether you or they want to or not. Paid for by taxpayers.

The new movie is called the story of stuff. It is an environmentalist and Marxist propaganda film being shown in schools all over the country. The premise: Your cell phone, Lego's, Ipod, computer, car, Styrofoam ETC is toxic and harmful and is killing you and the planet and its all being sold to you thanks to slaves in the third world! My how scary!

The movie has already had a negative impact. One 9 year old who saw the film commented that he was afraid his legos could be killing the planet.

The movie is hosted by Annie Leonard, a former Greenpeace Activist and a communist. In the movie she makes outlandish claims and spreads lies about our business system and the environment.

Consider what is being taught to our classes as fact:

THE GOVERNMENT IS SUPPOSED TO TAKE CARE OF US

EVIL CORPORATIONS ARE GETTING BIGGER THAN GOVERNMENT SO IT HAS TO CATER MORE TO THEIR WANTS THAN OURS

LEGOS IPODS COMPUTERS AND OTHER MATERIALS ARE TOXIC TO US AND THE ENVIRONMENT

CAPITALISM IS DESTROYING THE DEVELOPING WORLD AND THAT THEY WOULD BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT FOREIGN INFLUENCE TECHNOLOGY AND CAPITALISM

IF EVERYONE WERE AS WEALTHY AS AMERICA WE WOULD USE UP AS MUCH RESOURCES AS 5 PLANETS

GARBAGE IS COVERING THE ENTIRE WORLD AND WERE RUNNING OUT OF SPACE SAME WITH POPULATION

THE SOVIET UNION WAS BETTER THAN THE UNITED STATES WHEN THEY HAD COMMUNISM

SUPPORTERS OF CAPITALISM ARE EVIL

And this just scratches the surface ladies and gentlemen. All this is going on in public school. When I was in school we hardly had this crap go on. And this was in Maine! Even people I knew who grew up in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York and Elsewhere never had this kind of indoctrination!

These allegations in the movie are all theories and romanticizing rather than fact. There is no alternative message and in California which came close to banning home schools and other alternatives to government indoctrination over education students are banned from sitting out and taking alternative assignments.

Annie complains about rich capitalists in the elite making all the money off the backs of slaves and that we should be ashamed for buying cheap goods like radios. But the reality is that under Annie's ideal of how things should be run is a dark agenda. An agenda to enslave the world under socialism.

The environmentalist movement in connection with Marxists would rather you not be wealthy but poor. They envision a world where 1% of the population, a few loyal party members live in luxury, are well fed and fly in jets that they used to whine about as youths because they pollute the environment.

Meanwhile, the rest of the planet lives in squalor and primitive conditions that barbarians of the dark ages would envy. We will be forced to live in huts made of stone and mud, we will be forced to go hungry and cold because to build a fire would harm mother earth and animals we used to eat have more rights than we do. No building houses out of wood or synthesized materials because it is bad for the environment. As Annie Leonard pointed out we can't have our bodies contaminated with toxic materials that might somehow get into us since we need to be healthy to work on government projects they want us to build. Most of us however wont have jobs in this new world. They will be gone because of the thousands of government and environmental regulations that will come about.

Food will be rationed. There will be little if any electricity, everything in fact will be rationed since there is not enough for everyone and to produce them might hurt the precious environment and all the bugs rats and insects that live on it. There will be famines and food shortages because we will not be allowed to grow food in certain places and pesticides and chemicals we use to protect against locusts weeds and fungi will be outlawed.

That is the world Annie Leonard envisions whether she knows it or not. This is the world of the greens and their allies the reds. A world of deprivation and slavery. It is being taught to our classes. Instead of finding better solutions for the environment and the developing world such as innovation we should force them to stay in poverty and even join them in blissful starvation.

A better documentary by Lee Doren refuting Story of Stuff

Lee Doren AKA Howtheworldworks wrote a 4 part series refuting every lie made by Annie Leonard in the movie called The Story of stuff the critique. Have your schools show this along side otherwise get your kids out of school. They belong to you not the state.

It occurred to me today that one of the greatest generations that ever lived in this country (those that came through the Depression and fought in WWII) gave birth to the generation that succeeded in destroying it.

Yeah you are right. the greatest generation births the worst generation. The generation that fought off fascism is going to implement it. Sad...

Link to the ‘Stuff’ movie - I’m 6 minutes into it and I can just imagine a young kid watching this spew.

If I had a child in school there’s no way I’d let them watch this propaganda.

Watch it to detox the children.
Know the toxins they are being fed.

That succeeded in destroying it?? You better think about that. Doesn't even make sense.

We are at a time when there are more "gimmee" folks than working folks...and I mean prior to the massive layoffs...And more explicitly, the folks who voted Obama into office. Their ranks will stay the safe...It's unfortunate that Obama wants us to bow to them.

This part is true, although I doubt highly that the movie will address the destructive Marxist policies of the Democrat that force manufacturing out of America and into those 3rd-world stink holes.

That slavery is happening in countries that have marxist systems of economics like in India and China that stiffle businesses and keep the poor, poor. They have regressive taxation where the poor pay more than the wealthy, these same people are prevented from making investments into creating their own business like we used to have here and they lack education.

On a lighter note, in countries where this is less severe we have actually reduced poverty and increased life quality. Annie Leonard in the video romanticizes about peasants before the coming of the West and yet before that they lived in extreme poverty. We ended that by taking them out of desolation and giving them a chance to go to work and earn money so they wont have to live in poverty.

If she gets her way, they will have to go back to the jungle and eat their own excrement like they did thousands of years ago. And so will we.

Better to have the kids hear George Carlin's dissertation on "stuff".

Then have a separate show for the teachers: The Carlin dissertation...you guessed it....."_".

(those that came through the Depression and fought in WWII)
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Those that came through the depression were the **teachers** of the boomers! Also those that came through the depression etc gave us the following:

** The IRS
** The federal reserve
** Direct election of Senators
** The feminist movement
** Unions
** FDR's New Deal
** Johnson's Great Society
** Farm subsidies
** Thoroughly infiltrated our media and schools with communists
** And a thousand other socialist programs and offices

So....The Greatest Generation and their parents laid the foundation for the destruction of the Constitution and the socialist state we have now.

But....I have a theory for why this why this happened.

Government schools opened in the mid-1800s to the early 1900s. Simply by attending government schools the children learned ( and continue to learn) that the government can take money from his neighbor to pay for a service that his parents want for tuition free! Well?...If the government can take money for schooling why not THOUSANDS of other socialist programs?!!!

If we want to return our nation back to the Constitution then we **must, must, must, ** close down the government schools. They teach socialism because their **are** socialism! We must get our nation's children into private conservative schools.

Communism 101

But no worries, communism is no threat to you and your children.

They mean well, really.

There is no way in hell that communists could sit in power in the USA.

You mean the generation that elected FDR four times by some of the biggest margins ever?

1932: 472-59
1936: 523-8
1940: 449-82
1944: 432-99

The truth is the apples don't fall far from the tree. Greatest generation my ass.

“They belong to you not the state.”

With respect, they don’t “belong” to anyone.

Better to get them used to that concept...makes it harder for the power mongers to claim ownership later.

Don’t force them to share, either. Property rights is a HUGE concept that must be understood and protected in their little minds very early.

You’ll find that they share anyway, but on their terms. It’s a beautiful thing to witness.

Same with privacy, self-defense, not blindly obeying authority, dissent, etc.

Do this, and the constitution will seem obvious to them, and an opposing system will seem like hell on earth, on sight.

Treat them like free Americans and they will become free Americans.

My two cents on the parenting thing. :)

In our household we did not encourage sharing either. With toys that belonged to the whole family we told the children they could play with it as long as they wanted. When they were finished, though, their sibling or friend would be free to play with it as long as they wanted.
