I just pointed out that the Biloxi part screws up that theory.

And we don't know anything about the Minnesota school board do we.

But if you want to believe it, we won't let facts get in the way.


Seriously. That is your argument? An additional link featured in the OP.

Yes, the authoritarian left. Who are trying to pass language laws? Creating safe zones? Protesting oposing views? This is the authoritarian left.

This is social justice

The issue in its entirety?

Seriously?

Where are you guys trying to guide this thread? Are you implying that the school board is made up of the religious right or something? And from there make the implication that these are not moves by the authoritarian left?
Thanks from justoneman

I'm so happy for you, Sabcat. YOU'VE found a buddy: Peter G. Klein. Isn't that glorious?? AND... an opinion piece by Peter G. Klein, but of course...because he agrees with your simple-minded theories (BTW the OP is dated 2006??).....Klein speaks the gospel and AMEN, Brother! If Klein says it and you agree---IT MUST BE SO!

As much as I would LOVE to discuss every aspect of the OP with you, I'll ask the same question I have asked for years. Here it is:

If conservatives are SO disgusted--so outraged--so incensed, offended, appalled by the number of "SOCIALISTS-slash-LIBERALS" in our public schools and universities, WHY don't conservatives (the really smart guys who think like you) BECOME educators???

Easy solution, don't you think?? Go for it. Knock yourself out. BECOME an academic and change the world. CHANGE the thinking. SHAPE those young minds. Scoot--get busy!! Get that PhD....then YOU too can get those government grants and goodies....OH BUT yes--you don't want them. Right.
Thanks from Hollywood
