Say No to Common Core and God Bless (A Stupid) America!

Say No to Common Core and God Bless (A Stupid) America!

Today is “National Don’t Send Your Child To School Day,” a brilliant idea from a website that is terrified that the Common Core educational standards will lead to socialism, one-world government, tyranny, “Obama Math” and god knows what else, probably Sharia law too.* Among other worries, some parents fear that since Common Core seeks to normalize educational standards among the 45 participating states, this is somehow a “federal takeover” of education — in reality, the Department of Education supports the initiative, but has no power to mandate it… YET. Basically, opposition to Common Core runs from the serious (too much standardization) to the ridiculous (Obama’s gonna make our kids illiterate communists!), with what seems to be a lot of paranoid ranting driving a lot of it. Like “UN Agenda 21″ it’s becoming sort of a rightwing shibboleth, something that must be opposed because godfearing Americans must fight the grab-bag of threats it poses to everything we hold dear.

So anyway, today is the day to tell the schools that you’re not going to go along with Common Core, by keeping your kids home and showing them 10th Amendment flashcards or something, until they get bored and wander off to play video games.

Here's hoping you kept your kids home from school today playing violent video games rather than sending them to the godless communist bastion that is our public schools, where they would be made to read "the Socialist tract Nickel and Dimed" and books about Justin Bieber (say what?) as well as learn “social justice” objectives and how to problem solve and, gasp, think, thanks to a radical curriculum designed by "experts" like “Weatherman/terrorist-turned-education professor Bill Ayers” and those other Communist devils, Bill Gates and Hillary Clinton. Catchily clamoring that "If You're For Core, You're Out the Door, "today's "Don't Send Your Child to School Day" is the brainchild of Janet Wilson, a stay-at-home mom who kept her own kid home today, like she does every day because actually he/she isn't old enough to go to school, and when he/she is then Wilson will homeschool, but still she wants to protect your kids from all these dangerous "ideas" because "federal education will be the beginning of the end of this country as we know it” and “It’s God uniting his army" and the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and our freedoms! Sigh. Yes, these people are out there.
