LFC Comments by Brian Massie, very concerned average citizen
The defeat of the Riverside Bond Levy [76% – 24%] does not mean that concerned citizens should now settle back and relax. This is but one skirmish in a seemingly never ending battle to win back the control of the public schools from the communists and their useful idiots.
“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”…quote from Vladimir Lenin. He was the founder of the Russian Communist Party.
Vladimir Lenin, also called Vladimir Ilich Lenin, original name Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov, (born April 10 [April 22, New Style], 1870, Simbirsk, Russia—died January 21, 1924, Gorki [later Gorki Leninskiye], near Moscow), founder of the Russian Communist Party (Bolsheviks), inspirer and leader of the Bolshevik Revolution (1917), and the architect, builder, and first head (1917–24) of the Soviet state. He was the founder of the organization known as Comintern (Communist International) and the posthumous source of “Leninism,” the doctrine codified and conjoined with Karl Marx’s works by Lenin’s successors to form Marxism-Leninism, which became the Communist worldview.

Communism is a political and economic doctrine that aims to replace private property and a profit-based economy with public ownership and communal control of at least the major means of production (e.g., mines, mills, and factories) and the natural resources of a society. We got “a taste” of communism during the last two Covid years – those in power create the problem, offer “solutions” and then mandate what you do, when you do it and provide the consequences if you do not following their tyrannical orders.
Fear is a very powerful, controlling force; and those in power use it to their advantage.
No doubt you have heard the “Build Back Better” slogan by the puppet, Joe Biden. He should also add the globalists’ statement of “you will own nothing, and you will be happy”.
Take it very seriously because they mean it.
So who does control the public education of the children? School board? Superintendent? Parents?
One area of control starts at the top with the Federal Department of Education. Their anti-God, anti-American, communist agenda percolates through the State Boards of Education and then to the local school districts. They ensure compliance with their leftist agenda, which is ultimately to have control of what is taught to the children, with money given to the school districts.
However, the real control is at the local level with the teachers and the teachers’ unions and a complicit school board and administration. We are not calling out ALL teachers, because we know many that are appalled by what is being currently taught in the public schools.
The following video was taken on May 4, 2022 at the Riverside School Board meeting discussing a resolution introduced by Mr. Thomas Hach dealing with transparency and parental rights. Mr. Hach and the other Conservative board member, Mr. Scott Fishel, are fighting insurmountable odds dealing with the leftist liberals, Lori Krenisky, Belinda Grassi, Jennifer Harden and Superintendent Dr. James Kalish.
Mr. Fishel made a motion to have a vote on the resolution, but Mr. Hach, ever the optimist and consensus builder, folded his tent and agreed with the leftist liberals to push the resolution out to a policy committee where it will eventually die. Sorry, Mr. Hach, but we would have preferred a vote so that the citizens of the school district know who is really against transparency and parental rights.
As a general rule, we judge those in power by their actions and not their words!
We created the following 3 minute video from the full meeting video shown above. We wanted to show Mr. Fishel in action. He calls out Dr. Kalis for not being transparent with the parents on the Marxist teachings of Social, Emotional Learning. Dr. Kalis replies that it wasn’t a problem until January of this year, which happens to be when Mr. Fishel was elected and joined the board.
So what does all of this mean? Quite frankly, it means nothing, nada, bupkis, because it doesn’t matter what they say because the teachers’ union and the teachers are at the helm of your children’s education. Don’t believe me? Watch Riverside teacher and former President of the RLEA [Riverside Local Education Association] Matt Ozinga set everyone straight on who is in charge.
It has been told to us that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is taught at Riverside High School. A teacher told a white student that they should feel guilty for being white, and have white privilege! We have also been told that once the door closes and classes begin it is truly the teachers that are controlling the narrative.
There are many, many problems in the Riverside School District. They will never be solved until the parents understand what is being taught to their children, and we have a teachers’ union that know who really is in charge – the taxpayers!
The Covid plandemic did allow some parents to observe what is being taught to their children because of the virtual classes. Perhaps a case can be made for cameras in the classroom so that taxpayers can observe what goes on behind closed doors.
