Students Forced to Design Communist Flag

Posted on February 8, 2013 8:00 am

A lesson plan for 6th graders in government schools reads as follows:

Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag. Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?

    I’d use:

    1. a picture of people lined up for blocks to get bread and other basics of life.
    2. a picture of the Berlin wall.

    A pile of skulls on a blood red background with the motto “We’re all in this together.”

    A UN-shaped logon on a UN-blue background?

    HOW ABOUT A GUN! DUH Nothing represents communism better than a gun and yet these same usefulless idiots preach against the only tool that can make communism “work”.

    In the introduction, editor Stéphane Courtois states that “…Communist regimes… turned mass crime into a full-blown system of government”. He claims that a death toll totals 94 million. The breakdown of the number of deaths given by Courtois is as follows:

    65 million in the People’s Republic of China
    20 million in the Soviet Union
    2 million in Cambodia
    2 million in North Korea
    1.7 million in Africa
    1.5 million in Afghanistan
    1 million in the Communist states of Eastern Europe
    1 million in Vietnam
    150,000 in Latin America (mainly Cuba)
    10,000 deaths “resulting from actions of the international Communist movement and Communist parties not in power.”

    OK, they can put a picture of starvation on there too.

  8. Michael J Bilek says:

    Students not required to learn reading, writing or arithmetic since, “Hey, what the heck. Even if they spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on an education they still won’t get a job.”

    No_Mo_Bama,

    They aren’t trying to ban guns for the military-only for private ownership. This is a page right of the Communist Playbook.
