Freedom of thought…?

Taken from http://www.columbian.com/news/2012/oct/30/letter-liberals-want-control-free-speech/

Several days ago, as my neighborhood children got off the school bus, they told me about teachers telling them to tell their parents to vote for President Barack Obama. They were also told that my hanging up an empty chair on my property was racist.

These are young and impressionable children; it is abusive to use them as tools.

Clark College recently had a “diversity session,” where my chair was a starting point for discussion on racial attitudes vs. free speech and how important it is to vote for Obama.

I was taught that teachers were supposed to teach how to think, not what to think. Does anybody see a pattern here? Anybody wonder where the Occupy people got their ideas?

The Legislature, in a moment of wisdom, passed a law that says no taxpayer funds shall be used to influence the vote. So why has someone not taken these so-called “professionals” to task for breaking the law?

Why are liberals so afraid of the freedom of a responsible voter to choose whom they shall vote for?

I have put up with a lot of abuse since we hung up our chair. And I am tired of the abuse. Please vote for Mitt Romney and get this controlling liberal out of office.

So yeah, that was pretty deep stuff this lady stuck in her letter. On a side note, I am pro-Obama although I have no right to vote being a Brit living in the UK. However, she has a fair point, telling children to tell their parents to vote for Obama is low. Slyly teaching them that expressing their political views is racist is even lower.

What happened to America being the land of the free?

Before this becomes an overt attack on politics and governments I’ll just leave it there! As always comment, respond etc, I’d really love to hear what y’all have to say about this…

One thought on “Freedom of thought…?

  1. Hmm…this woman is a bit of an idiot however stupid people can make sense.The act of noosing a chair is implicitly racist as well as serving no practical purpose. However what her letter should have been about was the fact that kids are being brainwashed into regurgitating political ideologies in order to coerce parents to vote. Children have no right being influenced into the horrid games of government. It’s corrupting their innocence, furthermore if you are going to educate them on the issue of politics give them a balanced view.
