How This Mom Dealt with Teacher Indoctrination
RUSH: It’s Open Line Friday. Darien, Illinois. This is Anna. I’m glad you called. She wants to weigh in on our discussion about teachers corrupting the minds of your kids that we had yesterday and how she dealt with it. Great to have you.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. This is a white suburban woman from the corrupt state of Illinois. Thank you for taking my call.
RUSH: You bet.
CALLER: I just wanted to let you know, when my son was a senior, it was election year —
RUSH: Senior in high school?
CALLER: High school.
CALLER: Every day coming home with a different story, it was very biased there. So my thing is you just need to make sure your kids have the facts, especially when they’re a senior in an election year because those kids are voting and most of those kids don’t go home and have conversations with their parents. So they’re really taking what the teacher says, and that’s all they know.
RUSH: Wait a minute. You know what? That is an excellent point. I have to constantly remind myself of that because my house was different. My brother and I talked to our parents about this stuff every day for —
CALLER: Every day.
RUSH: — a long time every day. But you’re right! Most kids come home and they don’t talk to their parents about jack, right?
CALLER: They don’t talk about anything. So, you know, we talk, especially during senior year, election year. I went through it with both of my children, you know, just so they had the facts so when they went to school and the teacher started telling them all this stuff, they could at least come back with some facts so the kids in the class could hear the other side of the story.
So, you know, I asked my son, “Do you want me to come to school and talk to the teachers, set them straight?” And he was always like, no, you know, he can handle himself, he’s a man, he’s 18. So when he graduated, I went to the superintendent of the district, and I told him what is going on at these schools. And I don’t really think the superintendent was aware. I mean, he talked to me for over an hour.
RUSH: When was this?
CALLER: This was the election year for Trump —
RUSH: So 2016, and the superintendent didn’t know what was going on in the schools? Now, I can believe he told you that, but I don’t believe that it’s true. But we’ll have to leave it there, sadly, Anna. But you are very good. You got your point in there, brevity is the soul of wit. You did it with power. I appreciate it.
