cease the State of California from forcing college students to chant to the Aztec god of
human sacrifice.  

yr, I reported on a very egregious instance of left-wing overreach
by the California Division of Schooling, which was set to vote on a brand new
“ethnic research curriculum” that will have required educators to indoctrinate
college students within the ideology of “decolonization” and drive college students to chant to the
Aztec god of human sacrifice so as to develop into social justice activists.

From the unique article:

curriculum recommends that lecturers lead their college students in a collection of
indigenous songs, chants, and affirmations, together with the “In Lak Ech
Affirmation,” which appeals on to the Aztec gods. College students first clap and
chant to the god Tezkatlipoka—whom the Aztecs historically worshipped with
human sacrifice and cannibalism—asking him for the ability to be “warriors” for
“social justice.” Subsequent, the scholars chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl,
Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, searching for “therapeutic epistemologies” and “a
revolutionary spirit.” Huitzilopochtli, specifically, is the Aztec deity of
battle and impressed lots of of 1000’s of human sacrifices throughout Aztec rule.
Lastly, the mantra involves a climax with a request for “liberation,
transformation, [and] decolonization,” after which college students shout “Panche beh!
Panche beh!” in pursuit of final “important consciousness.”

After my article appeared in Metropolis Journal, California
dad and mom took motion. Legal professionals from the Thomas Extra Society filed a lawsuit,
contending that the proposed curriculum, in requiring college students to take part
in Aztec spiritual actions, represented a transparent violation of the
Institution Clause of the First Modification. This week, after negotiations with
the dad and mom’ authorized staff, the Division of Schooling agreed to settle all
claims, and completely eliminated the Aztec chants from the proposed curriculum.

That is an encouraging consequence, and underscores the
significance of bringing transparency to the curriculum proposals of the leftist
institution presently answerable for public schooling. Even in a deep blue
state like California, when confronted with the overt radicalism now current in
the general public faculties, dad and mom are ready to struggle again—and win.
