Blue-state progs keep screaming the quiet part out loud: Your kids don’t belong to you!
Tommy Hoyt, a Democratic New Hampshire state legislator, is just the latest example.
A parent urged him to back a bill demanding that schools not withhold info about their kids from parents (i.e., no more secret social transitioning or woke brainwashing).
Hoyt’s remarkable response: “Do you know why children’s results tanked during COVID? Their parents were incompetent teachers. Do your children a favor, let the teachers teach, and shut up. You’re clearly no professional.”
Set aside the obvious self-serving lie here: Remote “learning,” demanded by teachers unions and their legislative lackeys like Hoyt, wrecked the scores, not parental concern.
Far worse is the contempt for parents, all too typical of Democrats today.
It runs from little fish like Hoyt all the way to the White House and beyond.
“Our nation’s children are all our children,” smirked President Joe Biden in late April.
And his attorney general literally ordered the FBI to target parents who dare to speak up at school-board meetings.
Dem superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez likened the recent federal parents-rights bill to fascism; House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries bizarrely said supporters “want to bring guns into classrooms.”
Democratic New Hampshire state legislator Tommy Hoyt called out parents who wanted him to back the bill.
“This is the way in which wars start,” pronounced kid-enemy No. 1 Randi Weingarten after Florida’s pathbreaking bill on the issue passed.
In Virginia’s 2021 race, Gov. Terry McAuliffe smarmed: “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”
That crack likely cost him the election, but remains the party line.
Just last Friday, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona (or whichever trusted flunky handles his Twitter account) tellingly declared, “Teachers know what is best for their kids because they are with them every day. We must trust teachers.”
In other words, it’s as close to core progressive policy as it can be.
Dems plainly think your kids belong to them. To indoctrinate (or worse).
Every screech and scream as parents fight them just shows this more clearly — and shows that the good guys can absolutely win this battle if they keep the pressure up.
