Any surprise that Fischer is on-board for denying children an education?

How else do you expect the Republicans to get future voters, they have to keep them stupid.

An ignorant citizenry is so much easier to Control.

Kinda like the RC Church keeping all knowledge in Latin, so the common man couldn’t read it?

“Some parents act as if the responsibility to educate, and even care for their child, is primarily the responsibility of the public school system,” the South Jordan Republican first wrote on a state Senate blog on Friday.

“As a result, our teachers and schools have been forced to become surrogate parents, expected to do everything from behavioral counseling, to providing adequate nutrition, to teaching sex education, as well as ensuring full college and career readiness.”
Okay, I agree with that, but of course (being GOP) his conclusion is party-serving and idiotic. Which party has been defining itself by its attacks on schools and teachers? Which party habitually attacks educated people as “elitist”? Which party makes a fetish of superstition? Which party is paid most to deny climate science, and the science of human reproduction and sexuality?

What could possibly go wrong?

I think I’ve spotted the issue…..

Vicious Babushka,

Sen. Aaron Osmond is such an “expert” on what a good “education” is. If he had his way, the US would become a third world country, practically over night. I have a feeling he also believes that evolution and global warming are lies.

Because of course two parents who work full time or one parent who works two jobs to make ends meet will have plenty of extra time to educate their children.

If legislators are really serious about this, then implement some kind of homeschooling tax credit so parents that want to do it can actually do it right.

You really can’t create a theocracy with an educated populace. You need people to be so ignorant that they think people like Bryan Fischer are great minds.

The goal is to take civilization back to the middle ages where only the priests were learned and the population was dependent on them to be the mind of god. What did they need education for anyway. Their only purpose to provide food for the king, die in his wars, and worship the priests: a theocratic nirvana.

This is a standard, baseline position in the Lubbock GOP, like gold buggery or opposition to the minimum wage. These bastards are turning me into a radical revolutionary. They are monsters and they are destroying the country. If they get their filthy, greed and cruelty crazed mitts on the White House and our nuclear weapons, they could destroy the whole world.

India and China will rule the world and Americans will work in sweatshops making goods for their Walmarts!

I can be third world and so can you!

Otherwise they’d realize he’s wrong, 99% of the time, and has a poor grasp of logic.

The Republican party agenda for America:

1. Keep them stupid
2. Keep them poor
3. Keep them from voting
4. PROFIT!
