Texas Textbook Adoption Hearing Turns Into Right-Wing Fever Dream
Zack Kopplin is a young man who has testified in front of many a school board in the Deep South advocating proper science education (especially evolution) and has been vocal about the separation of church and state. He’s done remarkable work with those things, and he’s only 21 years old.
That said, he attended the Texas Department of Education’s “social studies” textbook adoption hearing today, where the public can speak in front of the board. He live-tweeted the event, and I’ve collated a lengthy collection of tweets he sent out during the proceedings. It is a cornucopia of right-wing bad craziness, right out of The Twilight Zone. Regular readers of LGF who scroll through the tweets will find many MANY instances where your jaw will simply drop to the floor.Scary Texas SBOE Meeting
