If you take all of your cues from the Obama administration, this week you would have learned that Fox News is responsible for the plight of the poor, the first lady sees nothing but racism when she walks out of the White House, and public boarding schools are the answer to street violence.
The latter suggestion came from Education Secretary Arne Duncan as he addressed the National Summit on Youth Violence Prevention. “I think all of our schools should be community centers,” he said. “Our schools should be open 12, 13, 14 hours a day with a wide variety of after-school programming. If we could keep our kids there longer, we think that makes a lot of sense.”
Duncan’s concern – in the confines of the speech, anyway – is that kids in violent communities are being exposed to danger when school is out of session. So committed is he to removing that danger, he is willing to explore “controversial” ideas that go beyond 14-hour school days.
“One idea that I threw out that I wanted to sort of road test with the kids today is the idea of public boarding schools,” he said. “There are just certain kids we should have 24/7 to really create a safe environment and give them a chance to be successful.”
What a splendid idea! Why, public schools all over the country are failing their kids, so why not expand the school day to…well, to forever! After all, parents are screwing up that liberal indoctrination by teaching their kids a different story when they go home. This way, the U.S. government will not only have full control over the education of your children, it will also raise them right to adulthood. Don’t you worry about a thing, sir or madam, Uncle Sam is up to the job.
It’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference between Democrats and Communists. Is there even a difference anymore? Did any of these politicians who put a D next to their name actually grow up loving this country? Or are they all ravaged with the cancer of self-hatred, determined to make their mark on America by changing everything about it?
This sickening thing is that our streets are unsafe for children because liberalism has killed the American family. Now these monsters want to drive the final nail into the coffin and take families out of the equation altogether. Turn America into a gray, lifeless factory where kids are put on a conveyor belt at birth and turned out at 18 to embark on a lifetime of public service. Conspiracy theorists who talk of lizard-men and the Illuminati are making more work for themselves then necessary; the men who want to rule the world without restriction are right out in the open.
