Blue Star - Is your child being indoctrinated

Blue Star - Is your child being indoctrinated
nazi germany . the national socialist party in germany relied heavily on political indoctrination of school children to win support for its politics
Back in 2010 at an Education Show in Birmingham in the UK , the European Commission's Publication Manager, Judith Schilling , handing out EU Booklets aimed at children , tells an interviewer:
 

Everybody has now picked up on the idea that we will never succeed to convince people about the value of being a member of the European Union if we do not start early enough with the young people before they form prejudices and are misinformed by other sources."

  

- Judith Schilling , EU Commission spokesperson
 


The year after this , in 2011 , Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny and Minister for European Affairs Lucinda Creighton in association with the European Commission in Ireland and European Movement in Ireland started the Blue Star Programme in Primary Schools.


Below : Enda Kenny and Lucinda Creighton launch the EU's Blue Star Programme for Primary schools in Ireland








According to the European Movement in Ireland who is responsible for training teachers and implementing the course , the goal of the Programme is to foster a strong sense of EU citizenship . This is to be acheived through various class projects such as 
to "hold a mock parliament session" or "run a simple election" . Children are to be supplied with "MEP info sheets" , "European Parliament wall chart" , a "Mini booklet of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union" and various print products with "Attractive photos and illustrations" which "make the print products very appealing to children" .


On Completion of the Course Children will be awarded an "EU Flag and a Blue Star certificate of achievement signed by the Minister of State for European Affairs"

The Government has announced plans to complement the Blue Star Programme with a follow on programme in Secondary Schools.

A recent Department of Education Plan entitled "National strategy on Education for sustainable developement 2014- 2020" states 

The  NCCA has developed a draft syllabus for a new Politics and Society subject . The Minister for Education and Skills has recently prioritised the introduction of this subject. Its availability would complement the Blue Star Programme at primary level

tried and tested by the national socialists in germany , imported into ireland 21st century . crazy times
^
the thing about indoctrination is that people dont realise it until its too late , we've seen this with the third reich and now the EU
^
the idea is to have lots of little endas running around the place , the next generation of EU warriors
^
Britain got out just in time

this kind of thing is sickening , forcing kids to hold up flags and then putting these pictures in your brochure in order to sell a product (the EU)

I hope there are irish parents out there who will object to their children having politics forced onto them by our government and the EU
^
Would love to stick an EU flag up Kenny's backside and set light to it.Of course they will target our young.But children are not as stupid as we grown ups think.My son who is 15,is very clued in to all this Euroskeptics stuff,my wife is very intelligent,I am more the muscle in the firm.We actually are very unlucky as all the mainstream parties are in love with the EU.This is a great site,I am in awe of how anti EU the comments are.Only stumbled on to it looking at GAA news.You all give me hope that perhaps we can get out of the EUSSR.
^
In the UK , they have a law which prohibits the promotion of partisan political views in schools .

I'd love to say Ireland could do the same but we no longer make our own laws .

our laws are now made by the EU Commission (the people pushing this blue star programme)

somehow I dont think they are going to pass a law preventing themselves from indoctrinating our children
^
Fine Gael have a lot of connections within the school system .

the vast majority of Fine Gael members are Teachers .

They are able to reach out to other teachers and principals and encourage them to engage with the Blue Star indoctrination programme .

Its the same with Fianna Fail (most are teachers) although in the beginning Michael Martin was against Blue Star , now he has rolled over like everybody does in Ireland

It was the same with the Nazi Party , most were teachers . They did the same thing to German Children .

I'm not having a go at teachers because , not all are like this , but many of them do have a certain inability to think independently of others and are therefore attracted to parties like Fine Gael .

Its important to point something out to people

there are two things - there is the European Union and there is the Continent of Europe

The Continent of Europe is a land mass filled with cultures , peoples and places

The European Union is a Political Zone ruled over by Politicians .

Children already learn about the Continent of Europe in Geography class

so whats the Blue Star programme about , its about politics , forcing political views on children
^
95% of teachers joined the Nazi Party , I'm not saying fine gael are nazis but there are similarities in their approach to certain issues
^
the school system should be non political .

children should be allowed to make up their own minds on political issues as they grow up . 

this kind of thing happened in 1930s germany and look what happened there .

this year we are celebrating the centenary of the 1916 rising , men and women who gave their lives for a sovereign independent nation where Irish people could make their own laws and decide on their own affairs . 

"we declare the right of the people of Ireland to the 'ownership' of Ireland and to the unfettered control of Irish destinies . To be 'Sovereign' and indefeasible " - 1916 proclamation .

IF this was your sister or daughter how would you feel . The UN and EU are to blame for this girls murder too , they told all these people to come to europe and continue to do so even if it means people are killed and murdered , to them it doesn't matter so long as they get their New Europe or "paneuropa" . And all these so called human rights activists working for all these migrant NGOs are also to blame for this girls death , so long as they can feel better about themselves

rule 5.1.4 of the FAI governance handbook says .. "the Association shall require that its Members be and remain, neutral in matters of politics and religion" ... surely aligning yourself with a trade union is a breach of that rule https://www.fai.ie/sites/default/files/atoms/files/FAI%20Handbook.pdf

fundamentally , unite is a political movement , it lobbies for political changes on a range of societal issues , so Rovers is involving itself in politics by partnering with it .

the selling point to parents is that is just fun educational tools to help their childs education . the real motive is recruitment . gradually they will introduce the child to Unite and get the child involved over time in its activities , before long parents have a full blown communist on their hands and once someone goes down that road its very hard to get them back.
