Closing Thought–08Nov21

For decades now the GOP has been assaulting our educational system….trying desperately to curb the move to a more educated country…..the latest is in response to their lie about the Critical Race Theory….which by the way is taught as an elective in college….there is NO required subject along these lines.

According to the GOP parent’s are losing their rights……

One of the most dominant features of the modern Republican Party is its love for creating moral panic over things that either (1) aren’t actually happening or (2) are positive developments but ones that conservatives insist will lead to the downfall of society. Whether it’s immigrants supposedly taking Americans’ jobs or paid parental leave turning fathers into “doting dad[s],” the GOP has a long history of shamelessly trying to convince people that something very sinister is transpiring, and only Republicans can save them.

At the moment, the cause célèbre is the idea that liberals have stripped parents of a say in their children’s education, leading to terrible outcomes like kids being required to wear masks in the middle of a pandemic, curricula that includes accurate facts about America’s racist past and present, and—and you may want to sit down for this because it’s extremely alarming—the leaders of tomorrow being taught that the Holocaust did actually occur.

Just another wedge issue to avoid having any actually ideas or policies fr the voters…..all lies and yet it works perfectly on the voter…..how sad is that?

  1. Sometimes, I really do worry about the direction your country is taking. I know I often mention ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ here, but you really do need to read it, or at least watch the excellent TV series from the beginning. It is as if the words on the page are coming true in front of our eyes.
    Best wishes, Pete.
