…..I’m serious as a heart attack—right now, you are actually peering inside the mind of a liberal. Scary, huh?
You see, yesterday, Sarah Palin officially became my hero when she shined the national spotlight on the fact that Highland Park High School in Chicago, IL is not going to let their varsity girls basketball team compete in a national championship tournament, simply because the tournament is being held in Arizona (H/T Allahpundit of Hot Air). So basically, these poor girls worked their butts off all year to become the state champions—however, their school superintendent decided that it was more important to use them to make a political statement about the AZ anti-illegal immigration law (that 73% of Americans now support), than it was to reward them for their hard work. I’m telling you, liberal indoctrination of kids in the public schools never takes a holiday—even if it hurts their own students.
Furthermore, what really galls me about this story is the mealy mouthed excuse that Highland Park High School gave for not wanting these girls to go to AZ. Wait for it—they were “concerned for their safety”. I’m not kidding. Now, what’s even more unbelievable, is that, two years ago, this same high school allowed their students to visit CHINA! So now, communist China is “safer” than AZ?! REALLY????!!!!! Yeah, because as Palin pointed out on a radio show yesterday (see embed below), nothing says women’s rights like China—where they kill baby girls or leave them to die in garbage dumps. God Bless Sarahcuda, because if she hadn’t of pushed this, then this never would have become a national story (Palin has even offered to help raise money to send the girls to AZ).
Reason number 999,999,004 to homeschool or send your child to a private school.
Now, naturally, these pesky students aren’t too happy about a year of their hard work going down the drain, just so their school can use them as political pawns in order to continue the liberal indoctrination of its students. They were so upset, that two of the girls even went on Fox News to complain about it (gasp—the horror!).
Wait, what’s that you say liberals? There is no liberal indoctrination of children going on in the public schools? OK—well then, I would like to kindly ask that you please take a look at a Live Wire that I recently wrote that had videos of and links to multiple stories about children being told that drawing the American flag is “offensive”, children being sent home from school for wearing the American flag, children being browbeaten by teachers for saying that they supported John McCain, children being forced to draw pro-Obama campaign art, and, finally, children being forced to chant accolades to “The One” (“MMM—Barack Hussein Obama”).
Ouch—I bet that hurts having the truth slap you in the face like that. Well, because it’s common knowledge that liberals think that people will believe anything that they say if they repeat it often enough—even if the facts are stacked against them—I suggest that liberals repeat to themselves over and over again, “There is no liberal indoctrination in public schools”……”There is no liberal indoctrination in public schools”. Is that removing the sting of truth yet? Nah, I never thought that it would—I was just messing with you guys.
UPDATE: My girl Jaded has been kind enough to bring this unbelievable articleto my attention. Apparently, I was wrong about the title of my diary. Instead of “China Yes, Arizona No”, the title should have been “China and Gay Sex Stories Yes, Arizona No.” Come to find out, Suzan Hebson, the IL school official that put the kibosh on the Highland Park High School girls basketball trip to AZ, supported a program in 2007 that required ninth-graders to attend a “freshman advisory” class at which gay upperclassmen shared stories of their high school experiences. Oh, but it gets much worse than that. Here’s the kicker—“students who attended were asked to sign a statement promising not to tell others — including their parents — about what was said in class”.
OK liberals—now, I realize that the truth can be a harsh mistress. So, again, just keep repeating to yourselves over and over, “There is no liberal indoctrination in public schools”……”There is no liberal indoctrination in public schools”. Is it working yet? I didn’t think so.
