Perhaps the most significant issue leading to a Democrat debacle in November is the party’s position on children’s education. Many Democrat leaders are convinced that voters will not punish them at the polls for proclaiming that children, in effect, belong to the state. Governor Terry McAuliffe discovered that mothers will not tolerate leaders who want to limit parental involvement in their child’s education. McAuliffe proclaimed, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” This statement probably decided the Virginia gubernatorial election.
As the Justice Department intended, many mothers are not speaking out because they have been intimidated. However, they will not be silent in the voting booth.
Opposition to the progressive agenda is portrayed as “far-right extremism” by the education establishment, media and government. Former President Obama commented, “We don’t have time to be wasted on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage, the right-wing media’s pedals to juice their ratings.” Congressman Tom Malinowski called parental concerns “made-up cultural bullshit” stemming from a “fringe movement.”
