Riley J. Hood on Solidarity

From Constitution Party of Wisconsin Chairman Riley J. Hood:

“If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing,” I Timothy 6:3-4

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

Since my earliest memories I have had my ears tortured with the word “Solidarity.” The term actually was coined by the Communist Party. It is their term for top-down conformity. It is no surprise that a protest group using Communist logos, namely the raised clenched fist, would also use Communist terminology. Having dispensed with the Marxist origins of the term, I will now answer the question of solidarity with whom?

The answer is, I have “solidarity” with no one, because I reject the term. My primary allegiance is with Christ. A secondary loyalty is to do “the Lord’s work,” here in my country. I will not stand in “solidarity” with public school teachers or government employees as a group. I don’t even have sympathy for them.

•For the last 10 years, there has been no shortage of teachers saying in public forums, and in the media; that factory workers are “un-educated,” and can only “put the same 3 screws in the same 3 holes.” The average manufacturing worker is rather more than that. I have no obligation to tax-funded elites who have done their best to degrade my wages, and my position as the man in my home. Public school teachers are a professional class, posing as workers; which is why they make the above mentioned statements. They have no idea of what actual work is.

•Public school teachers, in spite of any religious testimony they may render, are workers of iniquity, teaching anti-God doctrine, in what passes for an educational curriculum. If a volunteer Sunday School teacher taught atheism, evolution and immorality, that person used to be considered a heretic. Public school teachers teach such lies, because they are handsomely paid to do so. If they were in it for the children, they would teach at a private school, for less pay, but more job satisfaction, namely children getting a decent education.

•Public school teachers, like all government workers, are not paid because they earned a profit for their employer. They are paid from the taxes collected from productive Americans. It is an oft neglected principle, but the taxpayer has a voice in what a government worker is paid. Not only that, education is the proper domain of family and church, so any public school teacher is overpaid, because government-run Public Schools ought not exist.

So, as a Christian, a factory worker, and a taxpayer, I can say I have no sympathy with any public school teacher. So far, these people have only had to pay in 12% for their Health Care Insurance. Working a real job would go a long way in straightening out their views. They might be too tired to promote Common Core, communism and sodomy if they had to do it on their own time.

    During my lifetime I have studied the Bible from front to back (how could I not and logically repudiate it) Ironically I find the Old Testament virtually 97.5% diametrically opposed to what
    the U.S. Constitution states;

    My humble opinion is that one CANNOT be a Christian, Orthodox Jew or Muslim AND be a CONSTITUTIONALIST!

    RJH> “So, as a Christian,———-,I can say I have no sympathy with any public school teacher”:.

    How ironic, since the very first “PUBLIC SCHOOLS” on this continent was established by the Puritans in the Colony of Massachusetts to assure that all children had an “adequate” Puritan
    education.

    .,……..a fact that gives a whole new dimension to the phrase; “hoisted by his own petard” :>)

    It drives me crazy to have people use “Christianity” to push their nastiness. NOT what Jesus would do.

  5. Don J. Grundmann, D.C.

    Puritan education of course was indeed just that – ” reading, writing, and rithematic ” to use the old phrase. The Puritans would never have dreamed of Social Engineering which is now the primary, secondary, and everything else aim of the Plantation Masters who now control the schools and the teachers unions. They would not have dreamed it possible that the schools would become anti-Christian and pro-sodomite. They would not have dreamed that teachers would promote sodomy much less be sodomites themselves.

    Bottom Line – singular teachers can have an honest desire to aid students in their learning but the teachers unions, and especially their controllers, have not only no such desire but work to destroy the children in endless ways.

    The teachers unions are one of the greatest enemies of children in the nation.

    Thankfully the Constitution Party, in contrast to every other party but the pro-life wing of the Republicans, stands in defense of the children and against their teacher union attackers.

    JP: ” NOT what Jesus would do.”

    Would Jesus turn his cheeks?

    Some folks believe that Jesus died for the likes of Riley J. Hood,

    You seem unaware that the 3R’s was the secular version that replaced the 4R’s of Puritan education; reading, *righting, *rithmatic and religion!.

    The New England Primer was the first reading primer designed for the American Colonies;

    >”Many of its selections were drawn from the King James Bible and others were original. It embodied the dominant Puritan attitude and worldview of the day. Among the topics discussed are respect to parental figures, sin, and salvation. Some versions contained the Westminster Shorter Catechism; others contained John Cotton’s shorter catechism, known as Spiritual Milk for Boston Babes; and some contained both.

    Watters** argues the Primer was built on rote memorization, the Puritans’ distrust of uncontrolled speech and their preoccupation with childhood depravity. By simplifying Calvinist theology the Primer enabled the Puritan child to define the “self” by relating his life to the authority of God and his parents

    **David H. Watters, “‘I Spake as a Child’: Authority, Metaphor and the New England Primer,” Early American Literature, Dec 1985, Vol. 20 Issue 3, pp 193-213

    Two of the most famous example verses are as follows:

    “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray thee, Lord, my soul to keep; If I should die before I wake,
    I pray thee, Lord, my soul to take.”

    “In Adam’s Fall, we sinned all.”

    “They might be too tired to promote Common Core, communism and sodomy if they had to do it on their own time.”

    On the contrary, I knew many teachers from the public schools I used to attend that actually promoted evangelical Christianity and neoconservative beliefs of ‘Bush good & Democrats bad’. Public schools are not all “Pro-Socialist & Pro-LGBT” and in fact mostly reflect the political views and opinions of the local area they were in, which makes them, in reality, diverse and sophisticated then what most political demagogues claim.

    But then again this is coming from a man that thinks it’s constitutional for the government to suppress & eradicate a whole religion, and especially a particular sexual orientation while forcing dogmatic religious views on all Americans.

    “If a volunteer Sunday School teacher taught atheism, evolution and immorality, that person used to be considered a heretic.”

    Funny, because Unitarians and ultra-liberal mainstream Protestants and their own sunday school teachers would beg to differ with that viewpoint.

    Just sayin’.

    Really??? I’ve spent 40 years in the Electrical/Construction industry and I have heard this kind of dismissive remark made by at least a dozen construction workers about teachers (not to mention politicians), such as; “He can talk in circles for hours, but he doesn’t know a pump wrench from a crescent wrench”

    Well, at least the Wisconsin State Affiliate says something.The Ohio one is so silent.

    I too know public school teachers (in places like the South Bronx) who are devout Christians. They are hard workers in generally crummy circumstances, and while I wish they would disavow their unions, the individual teachers are not the leeches Mr. Hood would have us believe.

    Some particularly devout Christians work in public schools to be salt and light, not to promote Common Core, social Darwinism or homosexuality.

    I also know blue-collar workers who read American history to better their knowledge of our county whenever they can.

    Mr. Hood, let’s stop the obvious stereotypes please. It’s totally specious reasoning, and you can do far better than that.
