The Wave - what is it about?

SNIPPET: "In 1967, at the Cubberley High School in Palo Alto, California, World History teacher Ron Jones was asked about the Holocaust by a student. "Could it happen here?".

According to the press release accompanying the latest retelling of the events that followed, "Jones came up with an unusual answer. He decided to have a two week experiment in dictatorship. His idea was to explain fascism to his class through a game, nothing more. He never intended what resulted, where his class would be turned into a Fascist environment. Where students gave up their freedom for the prospect of being superior to their neighbors.

Monday morning he straightened the classroom, dimmed the lights and played Wagnerian music. The word "discipline" was written on the blackboard. He then had the students sit up straight in their chairs with hands placed flat across the small of their backs. In this setting, he devoted the remainder of the class to the topic of discipline.

By the second day, Jones developed a special greeting, a wave. It became known as the Third Wave, and if students saw each other outside class, they were to use it. In his lectures, Jones went from "discipline," to "strength through community," and then to "strength through action."

By midweek, his "experiment" expanded to sixty students, and by the week's end, more than two hundred were participating. Other teachers and the school's principal stood by and watched.

The first sign of concern came when some students had taken it uponthemselves to report others who did not conform. After just four days, things got out of hand. Jones feared for the safety of a few students who refused to participate. To his dismay and alarm, the experiment was so blindly embraced by the students, that he cut the project short. "Initially I just wanted to show my students how powerful the pressure to belong can be, but the exercise got out of control. A momentum began to build that I couldn't slow, or even deter. I became frightened by the day-to-day happenings in class, and was forced to call it off," recalls Jones.

Overnight, Jones became the subject of national controversy, sparking discussion on the appropriateness of exposing young adults to life's realities. To some, he was an innovative hero and teacher; to others he was a Communist. Many people were shocked and embarrassed that the same mentality which led to the Holocaust could develop so quickly, in 1967, in a pristine all-American setting, and an academic town no less, home to the well-known Stanford University."

Hmmm, I remember the after school special in the 70s (remember those? LOL) called, I believe, “The Blue Wave”, and it was the same thing as described here. The students became little brownshirts and some got violent. They even wore arm bands to distinguish themselves as the elite. In the end, the teacher tells them that they will get to meet their leader in the school auditorium, where the whole school will gather to hear him speak. They are all so very proud that they finally get to meet their leader.

A movie screen rolls down, and on it, an image of Hitler speaking to a massive crowd appears. The fascist little brats that were—just minutes before—arrogant pubescent brownshirts (OK, I think they were blue), were soon sobbing and most were horrified.

As far as After School Specials went, that one was pretty good. Obviously, it stuck with me.

"I remember that After School special too! It also stuck with me, after all these years.

I think Obama's Hopey Changey symbol even looks a bit like the one in the movie.

At the time- I didn't realize the film was based on a actual event. Chilling.

I think we all need to watch this again, and kids need to see it too.

I remember some PST—public school teacher—did a lesson about the Holocaust a few years ago, and had the Jewish students wear yellow stars around school so they could be singled out. Suffice to say, it did not go well...

Obama Recruiting Radicals in High Schools (Freedom isn’t free...Fight Back!)
Big Government ^ | January 31, 2010 | Pamela Geller
Posted on February 1, 2010 1:23:23 AM PST by yoe

Barack Obama is using our public school system to recruit for his Alinsky-inspired private army. Organizing for America (OFA), formerly Obama For America, is recruiting in our high schools to “build on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda” – that is, his agenda of socialism for the United States of America.

Chuck, a reader of my website AtlasShrugs.com, has a daughter in the eleventh grade in a public high school, Perry Local in Massillon, Ohio. The teacher in her government class passed out a propaganda recruiting paper – headed with Obama’s distinctive “O” logo — asking students to sign up as interns for Organizing for America. You can see the entire intern recruiting form at (AtlasShrugs.com.)

And what will these “interns” be force-fed? The mother’s milk of the left — anti-war agitation, anti-capitalism, Marx, Lenin, Ayers, LGBT agenda promotion, global warming, pro-jihad, and illegal immigration. For starters. Maybe “Ellie Light,” who has in the last few weeks published the same Letter to the Editor supporting and defending Obama in over a dozen newspapers across the country, can give lessons in astroturfing.

The form carries a recommended reading list, including Rules for Radicals by the notorious hard left community organizer and Obama mentor Saul Alinsky; two Huffington Post articles by Zack Exley, “The New Organizers” and “Obama Field Organizers Plot a Miracle.” The first of those, published in October 2008, enthuses about “an insurgent generation of organizers” inside the Obama campaign that has, “almost without anyone noticing … built the Progressive movement a brand new and potentially durable people’s organization, in a dozen states, rooted at the neighborhood level.”

ObamaCare’s New Public Health Workforce Corps
The American Thinker ^ | March 16, 2010 | Michael Geer
Posted on March 16, 2010 2:57:41 PM PDT by givemELL

“It speaks of regular and reserve Officers, scholarships, loans, obligated service, individual contracts, training centers, the traditional income redistribution scheme of grants and grant proposals, etc. The debt repayment provisions are especially attractive to certain sectors of our population. It appears to be an indentured servitude gig. You sign up, do your part for nationalizing health care and the Corps will get the American taxpayer to foot the bill for your training and educational costs and retire your debts. Of course, if pinned down, I’m sure this will be characterized as a draft, a proposal, need to modify, hasn’t been reconciled yet or any of a number of ways to weasel the simple truth that until Nancy Pelosi votes on it she won’t have any idea what’s in this ‘Bill’.

Read more of this thing at your own discretion. The next heading after the Public Health Corps is Adapting The Workforce to Evolving Health Care Needs, which I take to mean, in the double speak legal jargon of phraseology and policyspeak, that you and your job skills will adapt to the needs of the Health Care Corps, not the other way around. We are living, after all, in the era Hunter S Thompson labeled as The Age of Confusion, Ruled By The New Dumb.”

“Obama Excludes Private and Catholic School Children From Easter Egg Roll Ticket Giveaway”
Wednesday, March 24, 2010
By Penny Starr, Senior Staff Writer

SNIPPET: “Robert Brannum’s 17-year-old son Nicholas attends St. John’s College High School, a Catholic school in the District. Brannum told CNSNews.com he believes the 3,000 tickets reserved for public school students should be available to all students.

“The White House is a public building,” Brannum said. “The tickets are essentially being paid for with public dollars. So it should be open to everyone, not just going to select categories of students.”

Brannum said he not only supports D.C. public schools, he attended and taught at those schools. But, he added, “There are students in the District of Columbia who attend private schools, parochial schools, or even (are) home schooled, and their parents pay taxes and they should be able to participate in some of the benefits of being citizens of the District of Columbia.””

“This is What Change Looks Like”

Video Description - Quote:

BarackObamadotcom — March 30, 2010 — To the untold numbers who knocked on doors and made phone calls, who organized and mobilized out of a firm conviction that change in this country comes not from the top down, but from the bottom up — this moment is possible because of you.

SOBERING TO THE MAX.

However, FREEPERS are DIFFERENT.

NO ONE HEREON:

—tries to silence other CONSERVATIVES who may have more information about a given topic.

—tries to call other CONSERVATIVES insulting, intimidating, marginalizing names . . . e.g. nutty, crazy, psychotic,

—tries to silence watchmen on the wall regarding Communists/globalists/socialists rushing the planet into a tyrannical global government.

—tries to ridicule those who are averse to OThuga’s UNCONSTITUTIONAL tyranny that’s getting deeper and broader by the week.

. . .

naw . . .

. . .

NOT on FR!

We KNOW BETTER

and

ACT BETTER.

We’re very good at warning folks properly in mild and civil tones about slight to moderate threats to minor FREEDOMS around the edges of daily life. We know better than to alert folks about wild haired idiotic concerns about any so called major issues of life.

We work very hard to keep things decent, in order, balanced and reasonably pleasant. We don’t see any need for anyone to lose even 5 minutes of sleep at night.
