If you don't vote, he may.
Will William Ayers be secretary of education in a Barack Obama administration? All parents should ponder that possibility before making their choice for president on Nov. 4.
After all, Ayers is a friend of Obama, and professor Ayers's expertise is training teachers and developing public school curriculum. That's been his mission since he gave up planting bombs in government buildings (including the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon) and assaulting police officers.
Ayers speaks openly of his desire to use America's public school classrooms to train a generation of revolutionaries who will overturn the U.S. social and economic regime. He teaches that America is oppressive and unjust, socialism is the solution, and wealth and resources should be redistributed.
In Ayers's course called "On Urban Education," he calls for a "distribution of material and human resources." His left-wing notions would be very compatible with those of Obama, who publicly told Joe the Plumber that we should "spread the wealth."
Ayers's books are among the most widely used in America's education schools. Ayers even uses science and math courses as part of his "transformative" political strategy to teach that the American economic system is unjust.
Ayers is an endorser of a book called "Queering Elementary Education" by William J. Letts IV and James T. Sears, a collection of essays to teach adults and children to "think queerly." The blurb on the cover quotes Ayers as saying this is "a book for all teachers … and, yes, it has an agenda."
Do you care about your continued freedom to homeschool? Do you care about the kind of citizen and voter that are produced by public education? Then you don't want to have to answer to Sec. Ayers. Or any of the other likely far-left "educators" who might be put at the helm of a department that I don't believe should exist in the first place...
The Papa's take:
It won’t matter if you do homeschool or send your kids to private schools. Once guys like Ayers are in, they’ll get laws passed that apply to those areas as well, or better yet, outlaw homeschooling and place all private schools under the oversight of the education establishment.Don't think it won't happen. The NEA has wanted to outlaw what I and many of you know God has called us to do. They will publicly deny this and say they just want protective regulation. But if you have access to their website and to some of the materials they distribute internally, you know that they want to do this incrementally without alarming the silent majority. All they need is someone like Ayers in power and a veto-proof, filibuster-proof majority in Congress, along with a rubber-stamp Supreme Court, and guess what? No silent majority, no matter how big, will matter.
Yet another reason to USE the vote God gave you, even if you are not crazy about your choices. Stay home and you've capitulated in favor of the opposition.
