Hard to believe that the same public school system that outlawed prayer in school, posting the ten commandments, or saying “one nation under God” during the pledge of allegiance would blatantly peddle the prayers of another religion in the classroom. Add to the fact that these chants are calling upon ancient Aztec deities (ones who required human sacrifice to be pacified) and it becomes even more befuddling.
An online teaching curriculum website that has handouts that teachers can print and hand out to the class includes a lesson plan, entitled, “The Awesome Aztecs!” which informs children that the ancient Aztecs were “clever people,” but one paragraph later explains, “The Aztec believe in human sacrifice.” Clever indeed.
Also interesting, it was not neighboring armies, war, guns, weapons, of even the Spanish Armada that eventually wiped them out…but disease. A disease that, somehow smote most of the Aztecs, but allowed the Spaniards, who remained mysteriously alive and well, to take over all the Aztec land and villages. Now how in the world did they pull off that feat five centuries before Gates and Fauci hit the scene, prey tell?!
But I digress….
Back to California. Curriculum introduced into the public school system encourages teachers to lead the class in various songs and chants, including but not limited to ‘Lak Ech,’ which, for those of you parents paying attention, is a prayer to an Aztec god (you know, one of the aforementioned vampiric ones that thrive on blood sacrifice). Kids stuff, am I right?!?!
“Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka—whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism—asking him for the power to be ‘warriors’ for ‘social justice.“
Now, usually when we come across a word we don’t know (or can’t pronounce) our brain sort of skips over it and moves on. So, for those of you not familiar with Tezkatlipoka (tez-kat-lee-poe-kuh), this god was the older brother and rival to the much-loved local favorite, Quetzalcoatl. According to Mythopedia.com, Tezkatlipoka was a “powerful, omnipresent deity, one of the creators of the Aztec world, and often represented by a smoking mirror.”
If your initial thought to “smoking mirror” was a skrying mirror (or black mirror)—good job! Renderings of Tezkatlipoka often depict him with one foot and, in place of a second foot, there appears an obsidian mirror—a hat tip to the mirrors used by the Aztecs in ceremonial divination. (Think Snow White and “Mirror, mirror on the wall.”)
“A key element of Tezcatlipoca’s power was his omnipresence. He was often represented by an obsidian mirror, though his power extended far beyond obsidian. Any reflection was a portal through which he could view the world. Obsidian was used for more than just its reflective properties, however. Ritual blood-letting and even human sacrifice were conducted with obsidian blades. Such rituals all connected back to Tezcatlipoca.”
Sounds like a real great guy—so glad we are teaching our elementary school children how to clap and chant to him, requesting warrior powers from the nether regions of the second heaven to assist them in proliferating communism…I’m sorry, “social justice” in the world.
Another chant in homage to the deity Hunab Ku (aka “One God”) begins,
“We’re here to transform the world we’re spiraling, rotating & revolving in, giving thanks daily, tlazokamati, giving thanks daily, tlazokamati, healing & transforming as we’re evolving in this universe, universe, of Hunab Ku, Hunab Ku, x2 Nahui Ollin Lak Ech – Panche Beh, Ethnic Studies For All, Represent!!”
Ethnic Studies For All?! Is this some sort of Marxist replacement for And Justice for All? Because if I ever get myself into a judicial bind, I’d much rather have some good legal counsel over some Ethnic Studies college proff stormin’ the bench on my behalf.
But it doesn’t stop there. Children are also taught prayers to invoke Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, asking for “healing epistemologies” and “a revolutionary spirit.”
“Pulsating creation Huitzilopochtli cause like sunlight, the light inside of us, in will to action’s what brings… Xipe Totek, Xipe Totek, x2 transformation, liberation, education, emancipation. imagination revitalization, liberation, transformation, decolonization, liberation, education, emancipation, changin’ our situation in this human transformation.”
“Human transformation”?!?! Transhumanism, anyone? Bueller? Anyone?
Imagine the OUTRAGE if a teacher led their class in a chorus of “Jesus Loves Me” or suggested praying and thanking God for their food before they were dismissed to go to the cafeteria? EGADS!!!! All hell would break loose…literally.
At best, this is a double standard; at worse…we are introducing ancient religions and deities back into the collective conscience which will inevitably lead to prayers of invitation that will unleash these forces back upon us. This isn’t mere history or cultural appreciation we are teaching our kids…this is straight up necromancy.
So, where did this “curriculum” come from?
“The new curriculum was inspired by Brazilian educator Paulo Freire, whose most famous work was Pedagogy of the Oppressed (1968). “Critical pedagogy”, Freire argued, is the best way to help the oppressed develop “critical consciousness”, and thereby cast off the “culture of silence” imposed on them by their oppressors. Once a fervent advocate of extending literacy to the Brazilian peasantry, Freire claimed to be a Christian socialist, but drew upon Marxist thinkers as well as anti-colonialist radicals such as Frantz Fanon. Needless to say, he was an enthusiastic supporter of Mao’s Cultural Revolution; he also had a profound influence on American teacher-training programmes.”
Fortunately, the world hasn’t gone completely bonkers just yet and there are some people with enough sense in California who are seeking to stop the curriculum from entering the school system. But until things are judicially overturned, the CA Department of ”Education” is likely to vote in favor of the curriculum on the basis that these are “pre-Christian” deities, not Christian prayers, which are forbidden in public school curriculum according to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause.
Do you live within driving distance of the public schools in your city? If so, you might want to consider a weekly prayer drive around the buildings. For more information on Through the Black’s prayer drive ministry, click HERE.
