Public Schools Denounced at Tea Party Rally in Tampa, Blamed for Election of Barack Obama

SUBMITTED BY Josh Glasstetter on Monday, 8/27/2012 1:43 pm

Conservative talk show host Neal Boortz, speaking at yesterday’s Unity Rally 2012 in Tampa ahead of the Republican National Convention, denounced public schools as “government schools” that are “forced upon us.” Boortz blamed “100 years of government education” for bringing America “to the point that a man like Barack Obama could be sworn in as president of the United States.”

Boortz directed the crowd to change the way they speak about public schools – calling them “government schools” instead. He also called on the audience to “preach school choice,” by which meant efforts to defund public schools and provide taxpayer dollars for religious and private schools and homeschooling.

A number of public officials spoke at the rally, including Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and Reps. Jason Chaffetz and Michele Bachmann. Kleefisch and Chaffetz both followed Boortz but neither stood up for public schools. One has to wonder if they, like Boortz, also hate public education:


It's more like a slope…

What is Santa Claus' real first name?

It's A Wonderful Life is on TV

Old Man Potter, I swear, acts like a modern day Right Wing Republican…

He sounds like those rich Romney boosters who had it in for the President. A man who owns 99% of everything, yet grouses over the fact that he can't get his money grubbing hands on that last measly one per cent.

Damn, it must suck to be that miserable.
