Republican Congressman Jim Jordan is proving every single day that he is a man of principle and can be trusted to hold the radical leftists in our country accountable for the insanity they continue to push in our culture, including the indoctrination and inappropriate content being taught in our public school system.
In fact, Jordan took Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, to school on Wednesday — see what I did there? — by point blank asking her who started the “culture wars” in public schools.
“You say most Americans disapprove of the culture wars that have saturated education policy,” Jordan went on to say during a hearing being held by the House Oversight Committee’s Select Subcommittee on the Pandemic concerning the issue of school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic, before going on to ask, “Who started the culture wars?”
“Weingarten twice dodged an earlier question from Jordan about whether parents or teachers cared more about the education of students. The teachers’ union boss also revealed that President Joe Biden’s transition team reached out to the union on the process of re-opening schools,” the report continued.
Parents all over the United States have come forward and raised objections over books that contain sexually explicit content being included in classrooms and school libraries, prompting a few states to have them removed.
“Those who think boys should compete against boys in sports, or those who think boys can compete against girls in sports, which one, which side started the culture war?” Jordan went on to ask. “Which one of those positions?”
“When I talk about the culture wars, I’m talking about things like book banning, I’m talking about things like stopping teachers from teaching honest history,” Weingarten responded.
“Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed parental rights legislation into law in March 2022 to address complaints about explicit materials. The state pulled multiple books on the grounds of having explicit content, including ‘Gender Queer,’ ‘Let’s Talk About It’ and ‘It’s Perfectly Normal,'” the report said.
“Is it starting a culture war, if you think literature should be age appropriate?” Jordan followed up with Weingarten.
“I believe the literature should be age appropriate, too,” the teachers union president replied.
If that’s true, then why are young children, some only in kindergarten, being subjected to all of the sexual perversion, gender identity confusion, and explicit discussions about sexual positions and how to sexually pleasure themselves? Does that seem like the appropriate age group for these kind of subjects to be taught and discussed?
In all honesty, the only people who should be having these conversations with children of any age are their parents. Period. The state has no right to be involved in these kind of matters. But let us not forget that the whole reason behind this is to undermine parents and replace them with the government.
He who has the children, has the future.
