Obama-era Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is in the nooze again, this time calling for a nationwide boycott of public schools “until the gun laws change” (https://patch.com/illinois/chicago/arne-duncan-calls-school-boycott-until-gun-laws-change).
For once we can agree with Arne. By all means pull the kids out of those schools! Because the “education” that they get there sucks. Let’s go a step farther: pull ’em out and never send ’em back.
Has Arne really thought this through? He calls on 50 million parents to pull their kids out of public school. For how long? “Until the laws change.” But what if that takes a long, long time? Do we keep on paying exorbitant school tax while the buildings sit unused? What about teacher salaries and pensions? True, we already get virtually nothing for all that money anyhow, but this is drastic. And what about salaries and benefits for administrators, first-grade guidance counselors, gender counselors, diversity experts, and the rest of the crew?
And what would he consider adequate changes in the gun laws? We already have scores of gun laws, dozens of which get broken whenever anyone decides to massacre his fellow citizens. What new gun laws do you want, Arne? Libs are usually afraid to admit they want to abolish our Second Amendment right to bear arms. Meanwhile in Merrie England, where private ownership of a gun for self-defense is all but forbidden, the murder rate in London has surpassed that of New York City. For some reason the criminals over there just aren’t obeying Britain’s gun laws.
Arne, old sport, be careful what you wish for. Take the kids out of public school, and the whole progressive project goes down the drain. Stop indoctrinatin’ and presto, no more new liberals!
The colleges won’t thank you for it, man.
