Moments of silence are a time-honored tribute to honor the memories of notables who have contributed in some way to the well-being of society. Sometimes those moments have afforded occasion for people to reflect on their memories of American heroes, loved ones, fellow workers or fellow students who have died and who will be missed. Recently, sometimes moments, or days, of silence have been instituted to promote certain moral/political/societal efforts to seduce children.
Such is the promotion of the National Day of Silence scheduled for Friday, April 17th, 2009 in Massachusetts schools and probably in other schools in America.
What’s being promoted? Well, it’s not an effort to get kids to strive and to study harder to help insure their success in these trying times. It’s not an effort to promote students’ sense of patriotism nor an effort to get them to go to church and resolve to be better people and dedicate themselves and their sacred honor to altruism and principled lives.
The planned National Day of Silence is intended to get children to make nice to homosexuals, to accept as normal the practice of homosexuality and to give deep thought during that day toward adopting that sick lifestyle.
The Day of Silence, DOS, website, http://www.dayofsilence.org/index.cfm, doesn’t precisely express its aims that way. Rather, it says that it seeks to draw “attention” to “anti-LGBT [lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered] name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.” It redundantly adds that its purpose is “to address the problem of anti-LGBT behavior” via its growing network of “hundreds of thousands of students,” which network has been in development for some twenty years.
What’s more than curious is that this group has chosen silence rather than discussion as its method of propagating its view. It would seem that if “anti-LGBT behavior” is such an overriding issue, in schools or elsewhere, it would be most proper and beneficial to air the nature of that behavior, to expose it to the clear light of day and allow for the interchange of differing ideas and points of view.
But that’s not the plan.
What is also curious at best is the acquiescence of any school administration and any teaching personnel in such Days of Silence, thereby condoning and fostering the actions of homosexuals. Rather than devote a day to improving curriculum, student attendance, student motivation, students’ lives and futures, they are setting aside time to forcefully push the homosexual agenda.
Will the devotion of a teaching day, or any part thereof, to such a group’s activities grease the skids for next year’s “Bring a Perv to School Day” or a “Day with Child Porn Purveyors?”
I guess that’s unlikely for a while even if this whole idea of silence seems un-American, even though a little silence in many American classrooms would be a welcome novelty.
However, the squelching of any debate or honest discussion is central to LGBT plans. Mandated silence on the part of the opposition, non-LGBT students, allows those promoting the Day of Silence event to freely propagandize their captive audiences without fear of dissident opinions being expressed by the vast majority of straight kids.
The very spare DOS site went on to ask for comments from participants, which it would screen before posting: “What are you and your friends doing for the Day of Silence?” it asked. ”Did you participate last year? How did your school’s administration react? Did you hold a ‘Breaking the Silence’ event? How did you celebrate it?”
Celebrate a day on which American students will be effectively muzzled and compelled to listen to this tripe, without comment? Big Brother would want to celebrate but not thinking students.
There have been zero comments in the 2 1/2 weeks since DOS asked for (screened, edited) input. That’s in line, I assume, with the fact few links work on the DOS site, although visitors are encouraged to get more information and “get connected” on Facebook and MySpace. I have to assume that those with whom they “connect” will fill in any blanks and perhaps arrange a rendezvous to straighten out any kinks or misunderstandings.
The DOS companion website, TransAction, http://www.dayofsilence.org/transaction.html, held “a national day [February 27th] to encourage dialogue about gender, gender roles and the full range of gender identities, [i.e., convince straight kids to love them] and to advocate for inclusive, safe schools for all students,” the usual sop pretending the gay lobby is all-inclusive. “Transaction” asked kids to sign up but didn’t provide a count on the number of volunteers.
In a word, the whole National Day of Silence is a charade, one more charade being perpetrated by gays and other warped individuals and organizations to recruit America’s kids and to have our kids either explore the world and activities of the homosexuals in our midst or, if they are repulsed by that world, to just shut up and stay out of the way.
One group not in the least silent about the imminent big day is MassResistance.org which actively opposes inroads by the LGBT’s and details their modus operandi: http://www.massresistance.org/docs/events07/day_of_silence/index.html. Those details include placing homosexual activists in schools to encourage participation in the silence to show solidarity with homosexuals, distributing free buttons, bracelets, and badges–no bangles– to kids. Those obviously are intended to psyche the kids up for the workshops held thoughout the day and to help them better appreciate the “pro-homosexual posters and handouts.”
So far, there have been no instances of classrooms set aside for hands-on gay experimentation, but that might very well be on a future agenda, conducted privately and, in compliance with the tone of the day, silently.
I have to concede that in writing this article, I was more than a bit incredulous and I repeatedly checked and re-checked various sources to verify the truth behind all this National Day of Silence hoopla. Regrettably, it’s all factual.
So, what can those of us do, those of us who perceive this DOS for what it really is, namely an advocate for the practice of homosexuality? It is not as much a movement designed to eliminate bullying and harassment of gays in America’s schools as much as it is a brazen and blatant effort to crush dissent by appealing to the natural inclination of the young for fairness and to blunt the voices of American students in opposition.
Hatred and violence are never acceptable behaviors but neither is the tactic of gays infiltrating schools and using them as a venues for the purposes of creating an aura of normality around homosexuals and using that aura to seduce as many of kids as feasible into homosexual decadence.
MassResistance.com offers a plan to fight back against those insidious forces. Instead of submitting children to a day of silent, gay indoctrination, MassResistance suggests an alternative: Parents should give their kids a day off and keep them home in silent protest.
They could spend the day teaching their children the necessity of tolerance and acceptance at the same time they inculcate in them the timeless and universal values of self-respect, rational thinking, and rejection of perversion and reckless, aberrant behavior.
More activist-minded concerned parents and their kids might even consider staging demonstrations by a new silent majority to counter this day of silence. Legal acts of civil disobedience, picketing their schools, and making a forceful statement to school administrators that they will not allow seduction of their kids may get the message across.
And maybe not.
