GOP nuts over “stay in school” speech

4 Sep

Ok, they have seriously gone over the deep end. I know there are people out there that think Obama is the anti-christ, and that everything he does is evil, but a “stay in school” speech? Give me a break.

Some conservatives are saying that Obama is trying to indoctrinate children by having them write letters to him on how they can best help the president. There are two major problems with this idea. First and foremost, Obama’s speech is not about how the children can help him, the speech is about staying in school and getting an education. Secondly, the “writing letters” part is voluntary and the white house clarified the language to “write letters to themselves about how they can achieve their short‐term and long‐term education goals.”

Ah yes, getting an education, that just reeks of evil socialism. Next they’ll be trying to socialize our schools so every child can get an education.

Faux News, however, doesn’t report the facts and instead prefers to stoke the fears of their gullible audience as seen here:

I’m sorry, but they are really grabbing at straws here. Any reasonable person who takes the time to find out what’s really going on instead of just swallowing Faux New’s bull would have to agree that this is just silly. It just makes conservatives look desperate.
