Yes, having public schools indoctrinate students in bizarre beliefs and practices where feelings trump facts has been the Democrat Party’s secret weapon for half a century. The brainwashing that occurs under the guise of education also explains why the Democrat Party opposes school choice like it opposes the Second Amendment.
Thanks to the last 50 years of public education, millions of Americans no longer appreciate the difference between facts and feelings. Consequently, when facts hurt their feelings, many Americans just brush off the irrefutable evidence and attack anyone who points out the facts that expose illogical feelings.
When it comes to supporters of the Second Amendment, we see this irrational behavior play out among pro-gun Americans who religiously support the Democrat Party. Now, before anyone feels offended, just think about the following questions first…
…Which party had 94 percent of its senators support the last gun-control bill voted on in Washington? (Hint: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid voted against the bill for procedural purposes only.)
…Which party does President Obama–who called this anti-gun bill’s failure to pass “a shameful day for Washington”–represent? (Hint: Although Senator John McCain is indeed shameful, McCain’s vote this day was just part of the .09 percent of the pro-gun party that jumped ship and supported the anti-gun party’s 94 percent.)
