homeschooled child pressing face against blackboard

The Ohio Department of Education is investigating a homeschooling network with thousands of followers which instructs children to “become wonderful Nazis.”

Logan and Katja Lawrence operate Dissident Homeschool, creating educational materials and lesson plans for neo-Nazis to teach their children how to hate at home.

At first glance, it might look like your average American school work. English, mathematics, history, science – all the subjects you’d expect to see are taught, but it’s all filtered through intense neo-Nazi, white supremacist propaganda meant to indoctrinate.

In these history classes, for example, children are taught that only white Europeans are capable of building societies, and that Adolf Hitler was a hero. In math class, they are taught racist and skewed crime statistics implying African-Americans are criminals.

Even subjects you think would be hate-free are filled with neo-Nazi rhetoric. One lesson plan teaches cursive handwriting through copying racist quotes from Adolf Hitler.

One may wonder how such unconscionable rhetoric is allowed to be taught to children, homeschooled or not. But experts say that these neo-Nazis have found an important loophole: state policies which prevent parents from being compelled to expose their children to materials against their sincerely-held religious beliefs.

Teaching Children to Hate

“I am outraged and saddened,” said Stephanie Siddens of the Ohio Department of Education. “There is absolutely no place for hate-filled, divisive and hurtful instruction in Ohio’s schools, including our state’s home-schooling community. I emphatically and categorically denounce the racist, antisemitic, and fascist ideology and materials being circulated.”

Yet there appear to be very few safeguards from preventing this in the first place.

Ohio law only requires that parents tell their local superintendent they intend to homeschool, provide a brief outline of the curriculum and teaching materials, and agree to instructing 900 hours per year… “unless the topic or practice conflicts with the religious beliefs of the parent.”

It’s that clause which experts say may allow the Lawrences to continue spreading Nazism to children untethered.

“I don't know whether religious beliefs are part of why the Lawrences have embraced this fascist ideology. but to the extent that they are, the [Ohio state] statutes would expressly protect that type of instruction,” explains Carmen Longoria-Green, board president of the Coalition for Responsible Home Education.

Teaching hate, at least at home, is probably legal.

Legal Loopholes

Experts say that home schooling regulations have been left toothless by decades of lobbying from religious groups who want less state interference in what they teach their children.

Young earth creationists, for example, cannot be compelled by the state to teach their children that the earth is billions of years old.

But what began as a movement to prevent children from hearing about evolution or receiving comprehensive sex education now appears to be morphing into dangerous new territory.

Nazis being able to teach fascism to their own children – and call it legitimate home instruction – is now a legal byproduct of the homeschooling system.

It’s unclear where things go from here, but Ohio is hardly the only state where this can happen. 

As one of Nazi organizers herself wrote, “for many states in America, it is so very easy to be in compliance. You send a letter… Just find out what you have to do, and quickly do it. After that, you can sit down and relax, and figure out how you will homeschool the children.”

What is your reaction?

    This is scary but not something that I am surprised to hear in this day and age. I had hoped that we were past this but as I can see it isn't going away. What happened to love thy neighbor? What happened to loving everyone? Why is there hate everywhere? I don't understand it and I think I would be afraid if I ever did understand all of this.

    Hey, homeschooling is/was/always has been very popular among Christians. And I’ll wager that some of the rabidly hateful religious right that have made themselves newsworthy since 2016 are/were homeschooling. The religious shouldn’t have a monopoly on isolating their kids so as to be better able to brainwash them.

          I agree with you Marion. Nazism is not a religion but an ideology that supports removing others who do not look like them, act like them or believe like them. It is a movement that should have died with Hitler, but apparently those who hate, keep dragging him up out of his Hell grave to aggravate those of us who just want to live out our lives without all the drama these neo-Nazis seem to create.

      So how is your sentiment any different from that being taught by the Nazi homeschoolers? You do not seem to have moved any farther forward in thinking than they have. Your grandfather fought in the Second World War, congratulations and thank you to HIM. What have you done, other than just deciding not to learn anything since 1945?

      I agree that nazism is evil, but they learned from their earlier generations just as you have learned from your grandfather. Just because your grandfather was on the side of the argument (anti-nazi) that people in the US commonly think is/was correct, and remains more popular, doesn't mean wishing for the death of those who don't think as you do is any better. If you truly believe in what you said, and were not just trolling, then in my view there is little distance between you and them.

        it's interesting that in the country where Nazism originated .. it's illegal to promote, or teach it. It's also illegal to show anything from that regime including flags and other 'memorabilia',

        Those following it today believe the SAME things that WW2 was fought over! They believed they were the superior race and inferiors were to be eliminated, Thus the ovens. The movement started with banning then burning books they didnt like, deciding what could be taught and what couldnt and that no one could question them. What the world heard was just what Hitler wanted people to know at first... when he started taking over countries the world got involved.

        Now, people are trying to resurrect Hitler and his cause! The same things are happening today.. and you seem to be defending them!

        Nazism is a closed system. It will not evolve or change. It is self-sustaining and irreverant toward its own environment which is why there are very few former nazis in existence. Anyone looking to "tale over the world" should indeed be taken down as their obvious perogative is to take others down. These types of systems and their propagators should be destroyed as they are not designed nor inclined toward openness or growth- this will NOT die or change on its own and what you say is completely oblivious.

    Nazism. I firmly believe in our First Amendment. Yet First Amendment Rights do NOT protect you from Hate Speech that brings harm to others based upon specific classification - race, religion, national origin, sexual identity, and disability.

    Nazism specifically calls for extermination of persons of color, non Christians, LGBTQ citizens and individuals with physical and mental disabilities.

    The United States of America should follow the lead of European countries and OUTLAW everything related to Nazism.

    The United States hasn’t come to terms with their OWN GENOCIDE OF THOUSANDS OF NATIVE AMERICANS and yet we allow citizens to STILL CALL FOR OUR EXTERMINATION under the 🇺🇸.

      As soon as you start down that path, you create a weapon that unscrupulous people can use to silence opposition to their views. For instance, if I am aligned with the prevailing ideology (which has, historically, been wrong as often as not) and I don't like what you have said, I can censure you by labeling your ideas as "hate speech." You're ok with that? Because that is exactly what it will always eventually come to - regardlessof who isincharge. Focus on the hard work of inculcating love, justice and mercy to those around you and promoting it in your community. Leave the feckless power hungry politicians out of it.

          You seem to prefer the Fascist/Nazi/Communist ideology that the right is pushing today...

I won’t mention his approval of slavery, and his edict that it’s ok to beat them, as long as they don’t die in the first one or two days 🤷🏼

            Lionheart you have no understanding of the Bible. You are a God hater your heart is hardened and you look at all the negative things in life. Something must have happened your life and you blame God. Sin entered into this world and destroyed everything but God made a way to save everyone from it Jesus took our place to die in our place so we could be with him. Study the Bible for your self and ask those questions to God and you will find your answer in the word of God. The bible is a whole and scripture will interpret scripture. Don't pick and choose a scripture and try to discredit the Bible. Read the other scriptures that will shed light on your question. We live in a sin infested world because Adam and Eve sinned because of Satan tricked them all the evil all through the ages is because of the sin from the beginning. God made a way if we accept what Jesus did for us we will go to have eternal like where there we will never die no more pain or tears total love and happiness no more evil or sin

              Truth sounds like hate, to those that hate truth, David.

              I’ve read the bible, and my head is definitely not in the sand, like so many who claim to have read that book, and claim to understand it all.

              I really don’t want to come across as being rude, because I know you mean well, but…..just the fact that you have accepted the tales of Adam and Eve in that book, tells me of your gullibility. You obviously don’t have any understanding of the science in genetics, which then tells me you don’t have the intellect to understand logic, reason, and critical thought.

              I know you can’t see this but unfortunately, you have been duped. That is what indoctrination does. It closes one’s mind to be able to see what truth really is, evidenced by the science that we have at our fingertips. If we close our minds to science, we put our heads in the sand, insisting that no one can see what you see.

              Epistemology is a wonderful thing, David……if you will allow it.

This is an insightful term as it indicates the type of political change sought by the extremists: radicals promise progressive change according to the political spectrum. and that all people who don't follow the Islamic religion should be killed or forced to live in servitude (slavery). No matter how you look at it all believers and non believers alike have tried to use religion or no religion to their point of view.

    My daughter met Moti, Jewish boy at 4-H camp in Spencer, MA. As friends do, they write and occasionally meet. The nextvsummer, he went to a camp in Israel. When not there, he spent time with his grandparents. He wentbto an exclusive school in Brookline. The camp that he went to a camp that taught him how to shoot and kill. He did that every summer until he graduated from Mamodidies. All Jews whether they have dual citizenship or not have to serve 2years in the Israeli army. I knew from my ownbexperience and before that, my mum's that yhe likeluhood of marrisge was slim to none, but I wanted her to have that experience.

    This is nothing new. There have always been fringe sects that teach their own kids and segregate the kids from the greater society.

They all teach the kids to despise "the Other".

      and you would be surprised what they teach in public schools when they try and indoctrinate the kids. Here in my state we had teachers flying gay rights flags in their classrooms, and yet demanding that kids with religious sayings on their shirts had to be removed even though the Supreme Court said you cant dictate what a kid wears in school as long as its decent and does not show private areas.

      And then you had teachers taking kids, who had nothing to do with this CRT crap; telling them that they should be ashamed of the color of their skin. When I found this out I went to a board meeting and then demanded they either stop or do the same thing to Black and Spanish students. BOTH of these groups had Native American slaves and the Spanish actually committed genocide in wiping out completely some Native American Nations/Tribes in the South west. So if you are going to try this nonsense against one race, then you better be ready to do it against all races as not one of them has not had slaves.

Pull your head out of your white ass and cite your sources you coward. The difference between being LGBTQ+ and being Christian is that one is not born Christian, one is indoctrinated into it. Also no one is telling kids to feel ashamed. Kids feel shame because they know their parents at home probably exert many racist behaviors. An it’s okay to not fell okay. Also. By kids I mean college students. CRT is a college level course. American history should not be sugar coated as you’re trying to do. To look back at history and feel only good things means you’re not looking at closely enough. As you tend to do Gray. Your cherry picked BS reeks to high heaven as it falls from you mouth.

I'm sorry, but 2 adopted children of transgender people weren't born transgender, they were taught by their parental figures that it is "normal!" It is NOT normal.

By your reasoning you need to be taught to be straight or gay, and you made a choice... But that is NOT reality. People are born with their sexuality YOU want to deny that because of your hate and fear .. not because of reality and facts. Your ideas of "normal'' are NOT normal but misinformed bigoted hate! BTW.. that is NOT a Christian way to think!

            That was the second dumbest thing I’ve seen typed today Charmaine. That’s not how being LGBTQ+ works. I was never indoctrinated into that. Accepting someone for who they are isn’t the same as indoctrinating them. An I wouldn’t let you adopt Kittens, let alone a human being. you’re spouting garbage propaganda that doesn’t actually happen. Gender Affirming Care is far more complex than you understand. Besides. There’s extreme cases where cis girls get hormone blockers because they develop too early. An I don’t blame them. You leave children alone. You’re the one corrupting them into being bastards and con artists.

        Right. We need to be clear whom are the aggressors and whom are the victims.

    Education has always started in the home. Why is this news? People who are bigots/biased have always taught their family the creed and beliefs they live by at HOME. The homeschooling network is just a convenient way to stay connected and brainwash subliminally as well as outright. It’s funny how the same folks who are up in arms about “CRT” and LGBTQ studies are crickets about this. Nothing about Nazism is religious, but it does go to show that hate will always exist and we see who the main proponents of it come from. Also, for one of the above comments, Latinos are not Spanish descendants, as “blacks” were also here pre-colonially. Both were colonized, so to educate would mean to dispel falsehoods that have been taught for years. The comment is proof that history has been whitewashed.

      The HUGE difference is that "wokeness" is being aggressively promoted in our public schools, whereas these Neo Nazi knuckleheads are mostly insular and without any outside support. Roll out a swastika on my school's auditorium stage and you will see this retired Army officer fight through a mob to tear it down. No, if anything, conservatives are showing disproportionate tolerance and restraint.

        Woke : aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice)

        I would certainly hope that "wokeness" is being taught in our public schools. Meanwhile conservatives are freaking out that kids are being taught that gay people exist or that people of color have historically received lesser treatment than white people in America. How dare our schools teach children the truth!

    This is the "cost of business" when living in a free society. You can have liberty or you can have coercion; not both. Whether or not people do it in their dining rooms, over dinner, or during a homeschool session, parents will inculcate values in their children. The fascist rhetoric is execrable but so is anti-Christian "woke" ideology. Feckless power hungry politicians always have an ear open for the misguided cry from the public "somebody, do something!!" And just like that, another cancerous piece of legislation is inflicted on us. Let's, instead, combat hatred by inculcating love, justice and mercy (Micah 6:8) in our own children and within our congregations and communities.

    Yeah, you're going to need to back that up with proof! Anyone can say anything (as we know).

    So called 'sincerely held religious beliefs' (even though they violate every credal precept of the coopted religion), are a too tempting refuge for every kind of scoundrel... just like faux patriotism, faux integrity, etc.

  1. Andrew B Shatner's Avatar Andrew B Shatner

    Responding to Paul Nunis, Why are we subject to hate ? In the Gospel to Luke, Jesus expresses a perspective that as long as the "Gentiles trod upon Jerusalem" the gentlle nations have come into the Kingdom! The jews recaptured Jerusalem since 67 BC in 1967 AD the sixth day war. I feel everyone can discern the diminishing of Christian faith as well as all faiths since 1967. Jesus concludes his exhortation with "will the Son of Man find faith on earth". Hence, the development from the Apostasy of the Gentiles, Hate!

    Is this really surprising given that the former president was a narcissistic, homophobic, misogynistic, racist who took his cues from the dictator of North Korea? I’m sure it makes his tiny willie semi stiff imagining the US troops jack stepping in front of him after making January 6 a national holiday!

    Explain the difference between this and the Gay pride or BLM or Antifa forcing their beliefs on others? It would seem that we as humans have lost our faith in others.

    1. Tom's Avatar Tom

      One group are Nazis teaching children to hate non-white people, the other groups are celebrating the acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community, fighting for equal rights for the Black community (particularly in response to disproportionally higher rates of police brutality), and fighting back against actual Nazis who wish to terrorize minorities, respectively.

      Talk about a false equivalency...

    2. Richard Basen's Avatar Richard Basen

      Charles. how many gay's or black people have firebombed a white church full of people or shot one up? And then get praised for it? How many white 'christians' have been rounded up and fed to gas ovens? When did a gay person insist that you had to become gay or tell you that you were inferior because you werent gay?? Remember Anti-Fa is Anti Fascist.. so if you are against AntiFa.. you support fascists!

    Scary. Shocking. And disturbing. However I have yet to find anyone who knows of, or knows those who are either Nazi leaning or hate provoking. Even some of the cases in the courts which deal with children have not even whispered the words or ideas believed to be at the focus of this subject. So forgive my skepticism. And perhaps it's because of the Ohio Department of Education's history of floating falsehoods and casting innuendos that has me challenging the story. I realize that this is a juicy story to some, and especially those who don't understand "thou shall not bare false witness", but the media seems to be spreading this around as hard, or more, than the many of the stories we've found out after 3 to 4 years were made up. I would respectfully say we should decline opinion on something which we have no first hand knowledge of.

    Your comments are speaking so loud that I can not hear the Love you claim to emulate. A wise person once said, "If there be any virtue, if there be any praise, then think on THESE things" I'm not seeing that here so it's time to move on

  1. Wilberta M. Berry's Avatar Wilberta M. Berry

    In case any has been under a rock, the rise of Nazism has been on the rise in America since 2016.

    Why a faction of people would want to emulate a losing group of people as with the rise of the Confederacy in America again is beyond reason.

    However, Nazism is not anything I believe Jesus would be preaching.

    Therefore there is nothing Christ like in any hate moment. So I can without a doubt say these people are definitely not lovers of the Lord.

    So Nazi Homeschooling is nothing less than indoctrination of hatred towards your fellow man of every other race and persuasion since the creator made all men in its image.

    No difference than White Supremecy teaching hatred towards others too. Something you won't find in Jesus' teachings.
