We acknowledge Australia’s mainstream Miranda Devine for the following article yesterday, plus her readers’ comments in Sydney’s Daily Telegraph:
“We really owe a debt of gratitude to Marxist education adviser Roz Ward (public servant ‘experimenting’ at Leftist La Trobe University) for revealing the true nature of the “Safe Schools Assignment” she co-founded.
Her latest bout of candour is a Facebook post in which she damned the Australian flag as “racist” and called for its replacement with the red flag of communist revolution.
Under a photo of the rainbow flag fluttering above Victoria’s Parliament last week to mark Premier Daniel Andrews’ apology to the (deviant) community, she wrote:
“Now we just need to get rid of the racist Australian flag on top of state Parliament and get a red one up there and my work is done.”
Even for the leftist Andrews government, a proposed communist takeover of Parliament by its new LGBTTQQFAGGOTPBDSM schools adviser was a bridge too far, even if she tried to say it was just a joke. Ward was forced to resign late Friday from her influential government post, though she remains co-ordinator of Safe Schools.
Like her other astonishing pronouncements, Ward’s Facebook frankness leaves no doubts about the anti-family, Marxist sexual agenda underpinning the so-called anti-bullying programme.
Yet Andrews has not retreated from his dictate that Safe Schools be compulsory in Victorian schools. Nor has he apologised for labelling as “bigots” critics of the programme, which includes homosexual role play and gender fluidity training for children.
“I get my advice on policy from the experts, not from bigots,” he said two weeks ago when boasting Victoria would not accept federal amendments to Safe Schools, which removed advice to bind breasts and tuck away penises, deleted links to gay sex shops and allowed parental input.
Labor’s federal leader Bill Shorten sings from the same songbook, smearing Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi as a “homophobe” for blowing the whistle on Safe Schools.
For Labor and the Greens and a number of Liberal MPs, Safe Schools is a progressive sacred cow which they use to signal their virtue on LGBTI issues. They go along with the pretext that it is about preventing bullying of gay and transgender youth while plugging their ears to the truth screaming at them from the program’s architects.
Government-funded mutations of Safe Schools are springing up all over, including in preschools where “Early Start” teaches toddlers about sexuality, cross-dressing, and gender fluidity.
But, despite outcry from parents, this benignly labelled sexual propaganda continues.
You only have to look at the latest newsletter for La Trobe’s Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society to see the buoyant optimism of the sexual engineers.
They are confident their agenda to remake the family is proceeding according to a plan laid out more than a century ago by the architects of communism, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.
If you think this all sounds like the paranoia of right-wing nut jobs, it doesn’t take much research to see it is a fact of history, which Ward herself has boasted about.
Last year Ward gave a speech to a Marxism conference in Melbourne entitled The Role Of The Left In The Struggle For LGBTI Rights, urging a Marxist sexual revolution to liberate us from capitalist oppression.
“To smooth the operation of capitalism the ruling class has benefited … from oppressing our bodies, our relationships, sexuality and gender identities alongside sexism, homophobia and transphobia (which) serve to break the spirits of ordinary people (and make us) feel like we should live in small social units and families where we must reproduce and take responsibility for people in those units,” she said.
In other words, the traditional family, conventional ideas of male and female, and heterosexual marriage, are all a capitalist plot.
This is not just some crazy idea from a La Trobe gender studies academic. Destroying the family is a key teaching of Marx and Engels, who said it was necessary to “liberate” women from their “oppression” to become productive units working for the state.
Marriage was “private prostitution”, wrote Marx. Engels called for the abolition of the family, and the collective rearing of children, describing a wife as “a slave of (her husband’s) lust and a mere instrument for the production of children”.
This anti-family ideology was adopted with gusto by the post-revolutionary Soviets who passed decrees in 1917 which made divorce easy, recognised only civil marriages, abolished shared family property and banned adoption. In 1918 courts took over parental rights. “True liberation of women, true Communism comes about only when the masses rise up … against … small-scale households,” wrote Lenin in 1919.
You will find these ideas in every feminism and gender studies course in universities today. But you probably won’t find their real-life consequences, which were catastrophic for Russian society.
By 1920, divorces increased 100 fold, the birthrate plummeted, abortions skyrocketed, and 75 per cent of marriages lasted less than six months. Nearly seven million homeless children “roamed the streets, starving, dying of disease, and forming criminal gangs,” wrote Geoffrey Hosking in A History Of The Soviet Union.
The Communists tried to reverse their anti-family policies but the damage was done. And now, we are marching in their footsteps, doomed by blissful apathy to repeat the mistake.”
Mainstream Reader Comments:
“I am only a grandparent but my horror at this supposedly education program is creating a sense of where is society going?
My little 4/5 year old granddaughters in later primary school being subjected to these programs under the guise of anti bullying takes my breath away. Maybe I can get them into Catholic schools which ban the program (like dan andrews kids). Please please parents rise up and protest or else it will be class actions all the way.”
“Would the Safe schools agenda have ever got up if male teachers were not hounded out of education across the nation to suit the decadal ‘ Nanny State ‘ socialist pandering?”
“This is all imported nonsense – I don’t know if Roz Ward is an Australian citizen or not, but she has strong links with England – where she studied and was politically active. Like Gillard, she understands politics in a British way – as a battle between Tories v. Socialists. Like Gillard, she completely misreads the Australian polticial landscape, where people don’t see life as a class based struggle.
Forcing radical change on people always backfires – in this case, it alienates people in the LGBTI community who just want to be part of Australian society, not change it.”
“Safe Schools is an appalling attack on the social and sexual development of the current generation of Australian children. Kids are lured into premature sexual activity, absurd ideas are put into their heads that they can change gender any time they like and they are given links to external websites with all sorts of harmful ideas like breast binding and penis tucking. None of this has anything to do with stopping bullying. Safe Schools and all similar programs must be removed from Australian schools right now. If mainstream politicians won’t do it then we have to vote for smaller family friendly or patriotic parties that will.”
“Ward’s Facebook frankness leaves no doubts about the anti-family, Marxist sexual agenda underpinning the so-called anti-bullying program.”Thank you Miranda for getting to the point of the matter.
It is abundantly clear that the “Foundation” driving this agenda does not have the interests of all young Australians in mind; neither does the disgrace calling itself a State government in Victoria.
The program does not help children who are getting bullied nor does it promote an environment where bullying no longer exists.
Not only this but the ‘safe schools’ program is in fact discriminatory to children who do value the heterosexual relationships of their own family. This program does not afford a safe place to those children, instead making them feel insecure, unwanted, isolated and socially unacceptable.
But to the red-Greens-communists this is an achievement.
We know that the ALP is hostage to the red-Green-communist; but what is the Libs/Nats going to do put and end to this offensive ideologically driven program which actively promotes homosexual activities to pre-teens.
This program has now made the school environment unsafe for the heterosexual majority who are branded ‘bigots’ ‘homophobes’ and ‘cowards’ for not understanding, not wanting to go along or abide by the upbringing their parents gave them.
We, the silent majority must remain silent no more!”
