By an unexpected turn of events, I wound up reading a copy of a magazine called Teaching Tolerance (Fall 2007). The headline on the front cover reads "One Nation, Many Gods". (Incidentally, technically speaking, with cold scholarly objectivity, this is a pro-pagan and anti-Christian message — the magazine is very leftist / liberal.) You can check their website: www.teachingtolerance.org. Now, on page 12 of this issue is an article, geared for "Grades 6-9", and entitled The Ladder of Prejudice. It is primarily about Jews and the Holocaust, although the next page deals with minorities and immigration as well. The five steps on the The Ladder of Prejudice are: Speech Avoidance Discrimination Physical Attack Extermination Now, for those who have been following the Illegal Immigration issue, we have all seen the "Aztlan" and "Reconquista" (aggressively pro-immigration) crowd do the following against Americans: Hate-filled Rhetoric (=Speech) Live in isolated, insular communities (=Avoidance) Prefer their own blood and culture over America's (=Discrimination) Assault Minuteman and other anti-Illegal protesters (=Physical Attack) According to this magazine, Aztlan is "four down, one to go" on the way to g-e-n-o-c-i-d-e. (Apparently, the Jews refused to believe it in Germany in the 1930s, and look what happened —*are you ignorantly repeating history, following in the painful footsteps of others because you just cannot learn from history??) This lesson is geared for 6-9 graders. Does anyone think I have misconstrued the information in this lesson, about the escalating steps of hatred, violence, and mass-murder?
