Texas Education Board Chair Wants Schools to Teach “Another Side” to Evolution

Republicans never stop trying to sneak creationism into schools via deception
Wingnuts • Views: 24,252

The woman Governor Rick Perry personally chose to chair the Texas State Board of Education, Barbara Cargill, is a creationist.

Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. This is what Republicans will do every time they get the chance.

The Texas Freedom Network is keeping an eye on these religious fanatics, and they’ve posted a video of Cargill speaking at a Senate Education Committee hearing in Austin, complaining that the curriculum used by Texas school districts doesn’t “teach the controversy” about the theory of evolution.

There is no controversy about the theory of evolution, of course. That’s how these throwbacks continually try to hoodwink people, by sounding as if they’re concerned about giving kids a good education — when in reality, they’re trying to instill mindless reactionary ignorance in children, to match their own benighted brains.

 Frank says:

In every language, the first word after "Mama!" that every kid learns to say is "Mine!" A system that doesn't allow ownership, that doesn't allow you to say "Mine!" when you grow up, has -- to put it mildly -- a fatal design flaw. From the time Mr. Developing Nation was forced to read "The Little Red Book" in exchange for a blob of rice, till the time he figured out that waiting in line for a loaf of pumpernickel was boring as f*ck, took about three generations. ... Decades of indoctrination, manipulation, censorship and KGB excursions haven't altered this fact: People want a piece of their own little Something-or-Other, and, if they don't get it, have a tendency to initiate counterrevolution.
