I live in Idaho, a pretty hard right state. I guess there was a little hard-core, right wing, libertarian type rally in the park, literally right across from where I live. Attendance was about 100 according to the news reports. I was home all day that day with a really bad caffeine withdrawal headache and I didn't hear anything. In any case, our own Lt. Governor was there (turns out her and Gov. Brad Little have a really awful relationship based around the fact that she doesn't think he's Right-Wing enough). I guess the tagline for the whole thing was "Freedom is the Cure!". Basically one of those anti-mask, open-everything-up, our-freedoms-are-being-taken-away type deals. But I guess one of their primary targets was, yep, public schools. One of the speakers had that line that is just getting under my skin so much "I don't care if the kids ever go back to school because they're taught that capitalism is bad and America is evil". That's nearly verbatim. Not to mention our own president said something along those lines at his 4th of July speech at Mt. Rushmore. "Your children are taught to hate America!". Now, I'm just entering my third year of teaching, but I'm kind of an old rookie. Maybe I've only noticed it because I'm now in the teaching bubble. But WTF? Is this a new-ish line or has it been going on for years? And again; WHAT ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT? What is the this ferocious Anti-American, pro socialist agenda in schools that they're talking about? And I wish I didn't find it so frustrating, but it is just SO no true! Anything to add, experienced folks?
