Could a Terrorist become Top Teacher?
Phyllis Schlafly, one of my heroes, has an insightful article about the scary possibilities for education in an Obama presidency. Consider former terrorist William Ayers as Secretary of Education. He has, after all, shifted careers from bombing buildings to brainwashing children, a much more effective way of destroying America.
"From his prestigious and safe university position," Phyllis writes, "Ayers has been teaching teachers and students in rebellion against American capitalism and what he calls 'imperialism' and 'oppression.' The code words for the Ayers curriculum are 'social justice,' a 'transformative' vision, 'critical pedagogy,' 'liberation,' 'capitalist injustices,' 'critical race theory,' 'queer theory,' and of course multiculturalism and feminism."
The impact of brainwashing a generation is already apparent in the growing acceptance of homosexuality as normal. What's miraculous is that after all these years, abortion continues to defy the evil left's efforts at acceptance. Most Americans still oppose most abortions.
Could an Obama presidency with Ayers as the top teacher change that? Let's hope we don't have to find out.
