If you think teachers unions give a damn about quality education, I got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
These parasitic little creeps are ponying up millions to try and stop the confirmation of Betsy DeVos because Betsy DeVos is an advocate for school choice.
You may not realize this. But the role of the Secretary of Education is supposed to be protecting the political power of Teachers Unions while ensuring that public schools remain indoctrination mills.
I know. I know.
You thought the Secretary of Education was supposed to oversee the education of students.
Since 1990, Teachers Unions have donated seventy-three million dollars to Democrats in the hopes of preserving their power in Washington.
And now they’re using union dues to destroy Betsy DeVos.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that unions like the American Federation of Teachers are pouring money into Leftwing organizations like Center for American Progress and the Economic Policy Institute.
And the sole purpose of all that money is to provide Democrat Senators the ammunition they need to undermine DeVos in her confirmation hearing.
Trust me. Opposition to Betsy DeVos has absolutely nothing to do with “making sure every child has access to quality education.”
Instead, it has everything to do with making sure parents have no choice but to subject their children to the indoctrination of the Left.
And that’s been the priority of the Department of Education since it was established.
These assholes want to sentence your kids to a twelve-year prison term in Leftist-controlled public schools.
When it comes to maintaining their monopoly on “education,” money is no object for these hacks.
They have to keep those future generations ignorant of our country, our system of government and, well, pretty much everything else. While at the same time ensuring that the Party Line is drilled into their heads by the time they graduate.
In a speech he gave on November 6, 1933, Adolf Hitler said:
”When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side.’ I calmly say, ’Your child belongs to us already . . . What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short tune they will know nothing else but this new community.’” [from The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Shirer]
This is the goal of the Institutional Left.
By controlling education, they ensure that “your child belongs to us already.”
Goal #17 of the 45 Goals of Communism:
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
And the Left has succeeded in all of that, haven’t they?
These people cannot permit Betsy DeVos to become Secretary of Education because DeVos threatens this “transmission belt” the Left has become so dependent on.
If Devos’ Department of Education succeeds in breaking the stranglehold the Left has on the education of children, it will be cataclysmic for the Institutional Left.
This has nothing to do with “education” – quality or otherwise.
It has everything to do with power.
Power in Washington. Power over the lives of children.
And the power to ensure that “your child belongs to us already.”
More than any other Cabinet post, the Left cannot lose control over the Department of Education.
And they’re going to demagogue, slander, caterwaul and howl through Devos’ confirmation hearing like you won’t believe.
