Maxine McWho? is nucking futz - indoctrinating toddlers to be activists!

Maxine McKew, the one who beat John Howard (rbhr*) wants to indoctrinate toddlers and preschool children.

So, they raise the flag and praise the ALP, and Julia Gargle, and they're indoctrinated from kindy. Wonderful.

Tell me, who's gonna be bringing in the taxes while these "activist" bludgers carry on? Where's their dole going to come from?

Pre-school guidelines for activists

HIGH-PROFILE Labor MP Maxine McKew wants to train toddlers and pre-school children to become political activists.

She has drafted her controversial Early Years Learning Framework which, if adopted, would cover all kindergartens, childcare centres and other early childhood settings.
The guidelines would also provide the basis for the education and care of all Australian pre-schoolers and are due to be implemented in July.

Ms McKew, the woman who ousted former Prime Minister John Howard at the 2007 election, is the Parliamentary Secretary for Early Childhood Education and Child Care. She wants children to:

CONTRIBUTE in a meaningful way to reconciliation, including flying the Aboriginal flag and inviting elders to give talks.

USE "social inclusion puppets" and "persona dolls" to explore exclusion and ethical issues.
CHALLENGE and resist bias and discrimination.

TAKE action in unfair situations and learn to act when injustice occurs.

ASSESS and act on power dynamics as they get older
What's wrong with letting them be children and innocent - as well as making up their own minds about what they'll stand for?

Bloody hell! More child abuse!

Here's the article.

I'll not be around for a while, gotta lot of work to do... deadline Friday!

On ABC2 TV news this morning, the newsreader referred to the proponent of kiddie brain-washing as "a high-profile ALP member of parliament".
I cannot remember seeing or hearing a word from her since her profile peaked with this exposure (which is probably not safe for the kiddies) on the front page of the Canberra Times.

Heh. Some of the crap my girl's already brought home from school has had me speaking to the teachers on a couple of occasions.

I dislike this person so much that I can't even bring myself to say anything about her. Other than her pregnant opportunism, her blatant stupidity and her overt success in being able to hide from the public gaze so well. She gushes, she gushes and she gushes. Other than that I can't bring myself to say anything about her.

Oh yeagh. She's a right royal pain in the arse who should never have been promoted above her station as an ABC receptionist. And all the migrants who voted her in because she has a big plastic smile and sultry vocal tones will live to regret it. Or else. Mehaul.

I've posted this before at other locations but I think it bears repeating:

Among the strange notions which have been broached since I have been in the political theatre, there is one which has lately seized the minds of men, that all things must be done for them by the Government, and that they are to do nothing for themselves: the Government is not only to attend to the great concerns which are its province, but it must step in and ease individuals of their natural and moral obligations. A more pernicious notion can not prevail. Look at that ragged fellow staggering from the whiskey shop, and see that slattern who has gone there to reclaim him; where are their children? Running about, ragged, idle, ignorant, fit candidates for the penitentiary. Why is all this so? Ask the man and he will tell you. “Oh, the Government has undertaken to educate our children for us. It has given us a premium for idleness, and now I spend in liquor which I should otherwise be obliged to save, to pay for their schooling.” ~~John Randolph. Proceedings and Debates of the Virginia State Convention (1830)
