Obamunist America Is No Sanctuary for Homeschoolers

Brainwashing of children to reject notions of individual liberty in favor of collectivist ideology has always been crucial to the progressive agenda. This is why Hitler era laws against homeschooling are still on the books in Germany, the land that produced modern socialism. Escaping from Germany to America isn’t as effective as it once was:

A family homeschooling safely in rural Tennessee may be forced to return to their native Germany, where the parents likely face huge fines and criminal penalties, and could lose custody of their five school-age children.

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike are looking to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to give them permanent refugee status. But Attorney General Eric Holder is disputing their case, arguing Germany’s ban on homeschooling fails to violate the family’s fundamental rights.

The Romeikes fled Germany in 2008 after authorities fined them thousands in euros and forcibly took their children because they homeschool. In 2010, a U.S. immigration judge granted the Romeikes political asylum—the first time this status was granted based on compulsory schooling laws. The judge found the family has legitimate fear of persecution in Germany, where a small group of Christian homeschooling families have already been jailed, fined, and stripped of their children.

But the Department of Homeland Security immediately disputed the judge’s decision.

That would be the same DHS that has participated in rolling out a wide red carpet for any Third Worlder who wants to sneak into the country illegally to sign up for welfare. Unsurprisingly, Obama’s Department of Social Justice concurs that confiscating children because you want to educate them yourself instead of subjecting them to morally depraved indoctrination does not violate a fundamental liberty.

Uwe says the uncertainty they face now hardly compares to the fear of “waking up with the police at your front door, there to take your children … not knowing if you will ever get them back.”

Hitler may have lost the war; but as a totalitarian oligarchical collectivist, he is winning the peace.

Meanwhile, Obama has declared that an economy already staggering under the weight of our bloated government will soon be forced to finance universal government preschool. The earlier brainwashing is initiated, the more certain it is to take hold. A ban on homeschooling in this country is only a couple more disastrous elections away.

    Remember Elian González! Jabba the Reno sent her jack-booted thugs in the dead of night to snatch the child back to Communist Cuba.

    Chances are Uwe’s family isn’t on any public benefits. I can’t find the graph I was a few moths ago, but English, Germans and other Western Europeans were at the bottom of the list of LEGAL immigrants taking government benefits.

    Of course dick holder will make sure this family is summarily deported.

    The mistake this family has made is to try and play by the rules. That is obviously not to be allowed in the Obama Administration.

    It will come as little surprise to many here that, while busily persecuting Christian home-schooler asylum seekers, the Obama administration and Herr Holder’s DOJ are gladly bending over (pun intended) to grant asylum to the world’s practioners of the abominable crimes against nature.

    “The suffering of sickness and the suffering of persecution have this in common: they are both intended by Satan for the destruction of our faith, and governed by God for the purifying of our faith… Christ sovereignly accomplishes His loving, purifying purpose, by overruling Satan’s destructive attempts. Satan is always aiming to destroy our faith; but Christ magnifies His power in weakness.”

    Leftists used your tax money to demonize the tobacco industry, and they are now using your tax money to demonize the 2nd Amendment. But, since getting their hands on your tax money is so easy, why not use it again, this time to demonize the Tea Party.

    The other option is to send them to violent Balkanized US schools

    In a statement posted on the school’s website, district spokesperson Stan Alleyne wrote: ‘South is a very diverse high school.

    ‘It is a microcosm of the city. Students function together at a high level every day. That is the strength of this school. Our students live diversity every day.’

    Uwe and Hannelore Romeike deserve better than a gun runner like AG E. Holder.

    A long time ago the ruler named Semiramis would demand a burning sacrifice of your first born son, on an alter to the false god Nimrod, who was her late son and husband king. That, along with the evergreen in his rememberance on his birthday anniversary. Bringing gifts for you and yours, became the stimulas of the day.

    A market driven economy with an all controlling ruler can get that bad today too. History is stuck on repeat.

    Trebeta, son of Nimrod’s successor, Ninus, founded the ancient German city of Trier. They were Assyrian people a long time ago, and that history is quite profound when you think about it.

    Pre-school: Yet another d-cRAT socialist excuse to get MORE socialist indoctrinators (what used to jokingly be called “teacher”) sucking-up taxpayer money so their union dues can further fund the d-cRAT party. And why wait for regular school to start indoctrinating young minds into big government socialism and sing songs of praise to Dear Leader OBOZO?

  • rex freeway

    Yet Eric “my people” Holder will prosecute any race and defend any Negro who’s ancestors feelings might have been hurt 200 years ago. And hides behind Obongo. I shake my head in disbelief at the gaggle of numbnuts he has assembled to run this country.

    They should have declared the following when they arrived here and kept their moths shut:

    “Si Senor Gringo, I want to pick apples. My wife, she clean hotel rooms.”

    “Welcome to the USA, undocumented aliens! Don’t forget to stop by the DNC desk to pick up your voter registration and welfare application!”

    Again, one need only look back at the teacher strike in Chicago to see where all this originated and where it will all end.

    The most violent school system in America, with the worst curriculum and lowest outcome, is run by a greedy self-serving teachers association and is governed by Marxist intent.

    The low-information voter believes this is due to racial inequality due to white dissonance and lack of concern for the needs of persons of color, and the half-black Messiah is hard at work solving it as we speak.

    The high-information voter sees through the Marxist government ruse by examining the facts which continue to overflow the political toilet known as Shitcago, and which continue to flow downhill to DC in craploads of stinking policy.

    Saul Alinsky started this mess. Barack Obama and Bill Ayers perpetuated it by pumping hundreds of millions of dollars into a social justice school curriculum; Reverend Wright altered the black community’s view of Christianity by pushing a social justice gospel (with the help of Father Pfleger and Louis Farrakhan); and now Arne Duncan brings his idea of government control of your children to the front of the class, with universal government preschool and Common Core.

    There will be NO American home-schooling if Holder, Duncan, or Obama prevail.

    The five goals of the new Federal School Curriculum – Common Core:

    1 – A national curriculum written by the state.

    2 – Regionalism, or the replacement of local governments by federally appointed bureaucrats.

    3 – A leveling of all schools to one, low national standard, and a redistribution of education funds among school districts.

    4 – An effective federal tracking of all students.

    5 – The loss of the option of avoiding the national curriculum and tests through private school and home school.

    This veritable Federal takeover of our children’s mental future – and consequently that of the first truly free-thinking society – by transforming the principal at the local level into one at the national collective level, is being left to Linda Darling-Hammond, once education advisor to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, and close friend and plotter with asswipe subversive professor Bill Ayers.

    One of the most persistent qualities of a liberal is their stark inability to view their policies as detrimental even when those policies are abject failures.

    The sooner they can get America to look like Chicago, the better.

    They are more than welcome here in Australia. Home schooling is quite accepted here and often far more successful.

    Kindergarten was a national socialist party invention in Germany.The idea being to get the child away from the parent as soon as possible,so as to create the ‘new German man’. People in this country accepted this as a normal part of schooling only years after memories of WWII=era German society faded.Even the 60′s and early 70′s kindergarten attendance wasn’t typical.Now that most people have accepted this,they want to push it back to grabbing 4 year-old kids out of the home.One PBS show advocated schooling of 3 year-old children,so,’we can teach them the right way to think from the beginning’. They don’t do very well with the time they already have,why let the teachers unions have more of a crack at your kids?This isn’t outside criticism,I’ve taught and come from a family of teachers.

    Under cover of night just disappear into the vast areas of the USA. Surely you can find help relocating and changing identities. Just use any SS number and no one will care. Just like Oliar in the WH does.

    Exactly. Just stay. Start going by the name Gonzalez and go to the tanning salon. They’ll be untouchable then.

    Here we have good hardworking God fearing people desiring to educate their own children being rousted by the Injustice Dept. while here in Tucson, any trip to the supermarket while show you a couple families of hijab wearing Somalis, utterly unassimilated pushing an overflowing shopping cart funded by their EBT card courtesy of Uncle Sugar.
    Something ain’t right about this picture.

    “The liberty interest at issue in this case–the interest of parents in the care, custody, and control of their children–is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court. More than 75 years ago, in Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390, 399, 401 (1923), we held that the “liberty” protected by the Due Process Clause includes the right of parents to “establish a home and bring up children” and “to control the education of their own.””

    -Troxel v. Granville (US Supreme Court, 2000).

    Sounds like homeschooling is a fundamental right. These are very dangerous waters, though.
