Progressive School Spin of the Boston Tea Party – American History for the Modern Patriot

28 AHMP Progressive School Spin of the Boston Tea Party & Why the Tea Act is Another Example of Why Government and Private Industry Don’t Mix What are children in America’s public schools learning about the Boston Tea Party? How is progressive spin and lesson plans loaded with liberal values impacting their perception of the event, as well as their view of the patriots who ultimately created our constitutional republic? What is the Tea Act, and why were the American colonists so angered by it? We will learn the fascinating answers to these questions in this podcast. As you might recall, there was a huge riff about how the Boston Tea Party was portrayed in a public school lesson plan in 2012.  The Huffington Post published an article with the following headline: “Boston Tea Party Was Act of Terrorism? Texas Public Schools Teaching New History Lesson.” Of course, this left leaning media outlet began the story by stating: “a report by The Blaze, a right-wing site started by Glenn Beck, reveals that as recently as this January, the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative included a lesson plan that portrays the Boston Tea Party as a non-patriotic act, instructing teachers to read a story to their students as a recent news report.” Gee, does that mean that since a conservative publication commented on it, it is somehow more egregious or...

Committees of Correspondence: A Powerful Model for Today’s Patriot – American History for the Modern Patriot

27 AHMP: Committees of Correspondence: A Powerful Model for Today's Patriot As you know, I believe that we must learn from the past and allow the people, documents, and events surrounding America's Founding to guide us in our mission to restore our constitutional republic. This podcast is about a powerful vehicle that the Founders used to coordinate and effectuate change prior to the revolution. That vehicle was known as a committee of correspondence. So what is a committee of correspondence? How did the colonists use these committees to interact with other colonists and the British authorities? Just how might the British Parliament’s actions in 1774 resemble those of the United States Government in recent years? I hope that my answers to the final question will be a good example of how the response of the colonists can give us a plan of action for the future. But before we get to that let’s learn a bit about committees of correspondence together, shall we? Initially, committees of correspondence were groups of colonists who came together to address or resolve a specific issue. They were primarily organized, and members were selected, as a result of town meetings. For example, a committee was organized in the colony of Massachusetts Bay to urge other colonies to send representatives to the Stamp Act Congress. After the issue was resolved the committee quickly disbanded. Remember...

Where’s the Party? Why Thanksgiving is Fading From the American Classroom and What You Can Do About It – American History for the Modern Patriot

26 AHMP: Where's the Party? Why Thanksgiving is Fading From the American Classroom and What You Can Do About It Please support my podcasts by purchasing one of the games on my website: There are 2 Thanksgiving bingo games, as well as gratitude cards, there, as well as more than 100 different printable bingo games on my other website: Thanks so much for supporting my work! Did your child have a Halloween party this year? Of course, right? Well, don’t be so sure there will be a feast, party, or even a discussion prior to Thanksgiving at the same school this year. And my friend, this is the year that you need to take action to instill and reinforce the shared common identity that we have as Americans in younger generations. What you say? That can’t be possible? There should be a Thanksgiving feast. Won’t there be lessons about William Bradford, the Pilgrims, and the Wampanog? Younger children will be making Pilgrim hats or mantles or perhaps fashioning jewelry as was often worn by the Wampanog. Won’t they? Well, have a talk with your child, his or her teacher, as well as other parents at the school, and you may be in for a rude awakening. After a bit of research, I have come to the conclusion that the celebration of Thanksgiving in our schools is undergoing...

The Mother of All Thanksgivings – American History for the Modern Patriot

In the last edition, we learned about proclamations of prayer and thanksgiving. Today, we will learn about the unstoppable force that motivated Abraham Lincoln to issue the proclamation which created the federal holiday celebrating the feast of Thanksgiving. In this day and age of the hypothetical “war on women,” it is helpful to draw upon examples in U.S. History when women played a key role. And this is definitely one such example. Did you know that one of the most influential of all magazine editors of the 1800’s was a woman? Did you know that we have that same woman to thank for establishing a holiday which celebrates the relationship created between the Pilgrims and members of the Wampanoag nation. While both of those facts may be true, you can bet if Thanksgiving is celebrated at all in your child’s school there will certainly be no mention of Sarah Josepha Hale. It is, therefore, my pleasure to fill you in about the good Mrs. Hale’s accomplishments and efforts. Who was Sarah Josepha Hale? Born in New Hampshire in 1788, you most likely have heard a certain nursery rhyme she authored. That would be “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” and that would be enough of a legacy for most. But Sarah Josepha Hale was so much more. Educated by her mother, her brother, her husband and herself, Sarah Josepha Hale...
