The GOP IS Authoritarian For Wanting Parents Involved With The Education Of Their Children Or Something

The hard left just refuses to get the message from voters that Americans are not happy with what’s going on in schools. Yes, the majority of teachers and administrators are not the uber-crazy types, like we see all the time from Libs of Tiktok

but, there are plenty of softly barking moonbats, and enough, including school boards, who want to hide what is being done and taught to the kids. Back in my day, late 70’s into 80’s, parents were involved. They knew what was being taught. They didn’t worry about their kids being taught crazy stuff in secret. Apparently, our parents being involved is authoritarian, per Sara Jones at NY Mag

Household Tyrants

To empower parents, Florida Republicans would put children in danger. If passed, their Parental Rights in Education legislation, known more commonly as the “don’t say gay” bills, would prevent public-school districts from “encouraging classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity,” CBS News reports. A proposed amendment would have required educators to report a child’s disclosure about their gender identity or sexual orientation to parents within six weeks.

Republicans haven’t been shy about their rationale. The text of the bills says they allegedly “reinforce the fundamental right of parents to make decisions regarding the upbringing and control of their children.” Last year, Senator Josh Hawley introduced a federal Parents’ Bill of Rights, which would include the right to review curricula and to visit children during school hours. In Texas, Governor Greg Abbott announced his own Parental Bill of Rights last month. “Parents will be restored to their rightful place as the preeminent decision-maker for their children,” he said at a campaign event held, fittingly, at a charter school. On Wednesday, Abbott told Texas state agencies to investigate reports of gender-affirming care for transgender children.

Teaching that stuff is not the job of schools. Not K-12. Moonbats are not happy that parents will be legally able to be involved, and that schools have to actually teach subjects, not Woke crap

Parents don’t lack rights in the U.S. They already enjoy the wide freedom to educate their children as they wish, including at home or in private schools. They can raise their children to be Christians or witches or both; the state does not interfere. Liberals are generally satisfied with this state of affairs: There is no appetite to prohibit parents from raising their children in even the most hate-filled churches. Yet the right behaves as if parental rights were under sustained and serious attack, as if the parent has been dislodged from a high place and, as Abbott said, should be restored. The GOP’s position on parental rights isn’t entirely coherent. Any attempt to ban gender-confirming therapy for transgender children theoretically infringes on the rights of the parent, but this hasn’t dissuaded the party from its attacks on trans rights. In Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton had previously issued an opinion defining gender-affirming care as ‘child abuse.’ Trans children and their families must now fear the long arm of the state, which will reach into their most private and personal affairs

Got that? You parents can be involved unless you let your kids go to public schools. Many cannot afford to home-school or send to a private school, and the government requires that children go to school. In Liberal World, government is in charge of The People. We’re here to serve government, and, the government will do as it wants, and you peons will have no input. The old notion of “government for the people, by the people”, has been replaced with a Soviet style one.

This goes on for a few paragraphs more, and, in Liberal World, it is authoritarian for parents to have rights, and for kids to not be indoctrinated, groomed, and be taught crazy things. But, hey, Democrats should continue pushing this stuff: it’ll just help them lose more and more elections.

    Was watching a Youtube video of a parent standing up at a school board meeting with the curriculum being taught by his town.

    First the Teachers were teaching that cops were predators and evil monsters that were mowing down black people 4-1. FACTS according to this man who said he looked it up. 1047 people were killed by Police last year and only 117 were BLACK.

    What are you teaching our children?

    Second. He said that Firemen will let black people’s houses burn while saving white people’s houses.

    What woke the Democrats completely up was that in SAN Francisco the town recalled 3 school board members by a 70 and nearly 80 percent to 20 and 30 percent voting to keep them in place. In San Fran, which is one of the most woke and liberal cities in America. Even they call bullshit when they see it.

    People are pissed, the left is losing the cultural war because they never thought the right would fight back. They were wrong. This war is over, we just have to finish all the battles first beginning with this years 2022 wipeout of the left in Congress and around the country even more and MORE leftists will find themselves on curbs as the Right takes over even more Governorships, AG’s, DA’s and school boards.

  2. Dana says:

    Schools don’t need to teach about sexuality, whether homosexual or normal; the kids already know what these things are.

  3. Jl says:

    Why of course-you wouldn’t want the people paying the teacher’s salary to have any say in the matter…

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Does that include English, Biology, Math, Chemistry, Geology etc? What if a parent’s group wanted to force the teaching of creation!?! Or a 6000 year old Earth!?! Or banning of books!?!

      The salary argument is bogus, of course. We pay the salaries of police, road crews, military, politicians, judges, janitors… and don’t tell them how to do their jobs on a daily basis.

        Actually, we do. We set standards of performance and behavior, and I seem to recall that you were very much adamant that we tell police how to do their jobs following the death of the drug-addled convicted felon in Minneapolis. We hold that doing or saying certain things — racial slurs, sexual harassment, and discriminatory behavior — is improper and may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination. We set the curricula in the public schools, we specify safety protocols for janitors, road crews, we have an entirely separate legal system for the military which criminalizes some things perfectly legal for civilians, and the list goes on and on and on.

            Ky. teacher sentenced to 30 years for child porn, cyberstalking victim after arrest
            By Beth Musgrave | February 24, 2022 | 12:08 PM

            A Letcher County Middle School teacher was sentenced earlier this week to 370 months — a little more than 30 years — in prison for producing child pornography and cyberstalking his victim.

            Charles Evans Hall Jr., 49, of Jackhorn, was convicted after a three-day trial in October 2021. He was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Claria Horn Boom in London federal court.

            The victim was a then 14-year-old student, according to the Whitesburg Mountain Eagle.

            There’s more at the original.

            Is it your position that we ought only to limit regulation of public sector jobs, performance and restrictions to situations in which a victim is killed? If that is not your position, then your quick quip was meaningless.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Child pornography, cyberstalking, terrorizing and murder are against the law.

            Except for police, who can kill people. And sometimes abuse that privilege.

          • Dana says:

            There are plenty of Democrats who support the Palestinians and have lapsed into rank anti-Semitism. Since you seem to believe that teachers should not be restricted from pushing their political views on a legally captive audience, should we suppose that you would find it OK if a teacher pushed the notion that the Israelis’ treatment of the Palestinians proved that the only problem with the Holocaust was that Germany didn’t finish the job?

      • Jl says:

        Funny-“banning of books”. Look to your authoritarian liberal friends for that kind of stuff, including the banning of certain people and ideas on social media plartforms.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          It’s our understanding that it’s authoritarian conservatives banning books in schools.

          Social media platforms are private businesses. Do you wish to nationalize them?

          • Dana says:

            Schools are public institutions, and their libraries are necessarily selective, because they can’t carry everything; the school boards have every right to place constraints on their selections.

            Social media are another matter entirely, and should not be limited or constrained by the government; that is the purpose of the First Amendment. I do, however, think consideration be made to treating them as public utilities; just like the phone company can’t deny you service because the company does not like your politics, so should Facebook and Twitter, so large as to be ubiquitous, should not be allowed to ban or censor users.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            When the authoritarian right wins the next round of elections perhaps they can nationalize the twitter, facebook, instagram platforms. (Which are horrible, btw).

            How about breitbart, Gateway, NY Times etc… should the gov’t also manage their editorial content?

          • Jl says:

            “Social media platforms are private businesses”. Gee, thanks. And censorship is still censorship. The libs are so crazy that they’re even “banning” statues.
            If you have to ban something, you better get a better argument instead.

    Jeff,
    If I were you, I would be more concerned about the Kenosha Kid coming after you, he is suing everyone that said something about him.

  5. L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

    The insanity continues: “Social media platforms are private businesses”.

    And that somehow gives them the power to deny Americans their Constitutional, natural and human rights? How exactly does that work? My local Denny’s can deny me freedom of speech? T.J.Maxx can eliminate freedom of assembly? Coca Cola has the power to determine who gets a fair trial?

    No person nor entity has the right to deny the same freedoms to another they would have for themselves. The Founding Fathers never having known despotic leftists never considered that natural truth had to be written down.

    As in all fascistic politics the unholy alliance of government working through private companies and individuals seem to have all the power of a Stalin/Hitler/Trudeau monster.

    Governments working through private companies to force their will is the definition of fascism. Ask your hero Adolf and Friedrich Krupps how that works if you doubt me.

    Let’s go Brandon, more people to oppress, more money for “The Big Guy”.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Poor Marlon understands neither freedom, American business or our Constitution.

      We once had little respect of Marlon, now we have none. Sad.

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    BrandO,

    Win the elections in 2022 and 2024 and nationalize all media. Simple.

    And what do you think about those fascist zoning laws limiting billboards?

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Oh, dOwd. The shifting sands of leftist logic(?). “Nationalizing” industries is what uou communists and fascists are known fore doing. We patriots believe in the Constitution and most importantly that which separates us from animals like you: Private property. What we don’t believe is that the ownership of property allows the abridgement of freedom.

      You keep referring to us having to win the elections of 2022 and 2024 (which we will unless you cheat harder) never realizing that’s not what a Republic is about. You are talking about a democracy. In a republic our rights don’t/shouldn’t change just because the party in power changes. You seem to believe when you win an election you heathen motherfukers become all powerful dictators. We are supposed to still have our rights or do they hinge on what YOU think they should be? But instead of respecting the rights of the minority you try and crush them like they are some sort of foreign invasion.

      Let’s go dOwd, kill more people, win more elections, eliminate more freedom.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        brandon: that which separates us from animals like you: Private property

        We are all animals, from dung beetles all the way down to you.

        But in the same breath you want the government to have total control of private property because 1st Amendment. Should the odious jimhoft (Gateway Pudendum) be forced to balance his dishonest output with truthful articles?

        brandon: when you win an election you heathen motherfukers become all powerful dictators

        Uh-huh. We’re used to cons rejecting democratic principles, even in our republic.

        You surely realize that we have rules for governance. When a party wins the House, Senate and Presidency they can write and pass laws that must also pass the muster of the Courts. So by all means win the elections and pass laws.

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          You really have a hard time keeping on message don’t ya dOwd? I never said nor did I infer “But in the same breath you want the government to have total control of private property because 1st Amendment” or anything of the sort. We are all aware there are rules and regulations governing everything in our modern life. Nobody disputes that. We do dispute when social media platforms and such which are in fact PUBLIC platforms which are private companies and are subject to the same regulations as other utilities such as phone, cell and airwaves and should be accessible to ALL Americans not just leftists. When media can cancel, censor and ban the POTUS it has way too much power. I bet if they banned Brandon you’d agree then. But as a partisan hack you only care about free speech when it’s your side talking.

          Once again my dear despot: we are not a democracy and never were designed to be. Our laws and courts should be objective and even handed and not dependent on whether or not dOwdists like the person or his politics to administer justice.

          Let’s go dOwd, more people to oppress, more elections to steal. Maybe next time around you can have vaccine resistors executed. You must love how Canada went right down the craphole into despotism under leftism.

    Is it true that trump’s ‘TRUTH Social’ social media platform has banned contributors??? FREEDUMB!!

    Right-wing talk show host Stew Peters complained that the platform had “censored” a post where he falsely claimed that COVID-19 vaccines were “dangerous” while urging executions for those who allow the shots to be given to children.

    WTF?

    Ruh roh!

    TRUTH Social’s community guidelines explicitly state that the platform allows “trolling” and “not safe for work” content, although the site’s legal terms of service also includes a long list of prohibitions on posting “offensive” or “false, inaccurate, or misleading” content.

    They even banned an account making fun of TRUTH CEO, Devin Nunes…

    Is Donald J. TrumPutin a heathen motherfuker as brandO describes others?
