    I know Republicans who have that exact view though... they also add in that teaching brown people is a waste of time. I am not saying the comments are good but they are certainly not inaccurate. Sure, it is left leaning and I would choose some better negative ones about the liberals to balance it out but as a leaning conservative I don't see much of an issue here.

    Since the alleged student thought helping the poor is fascism, I would say the child's indoctrination began at home.

    I already said they do NOT claim a position they just do it. See my prior post.

    Says you. I know differently as I have Democratic friends who would see no issue with the question in the OP.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    LOL !!

    Sure, you " know Republicans " who think teaching Brown people is a waste of time.

    Reminds me of the Teaching scandal that took place in Atlanta back in 2008-2009.

    You see, Black Teachers pulled their resources and literally changed the Test scores on hundreds, maybe thousands of their students Test scores.

    This took place in low income inner city schools. Now, 12 Teachers are on trial including a Principle who received a " Special award " from Obama himself for her miraculous accomplishments.

    It wasn't " Republicans " who screwed these kids, it was their own Teachers. Inner city schools don't fail because of " racist Republicans ".

    Inner city schools dont suffer because of " racist Republicans ", they suffer because of the consequences of Progressive policies that perpetuate poverty and dependance.

    It's easiest thing in the world to be a liberal, isn't it? You can advocate free flying ponies for everyone without ever considering if it actually does any good or is even possible.
    Complains about people who oversimplify republican positions

    Oversimplifies liberal positions.
