7. This has its roots with David Horriblewitz
And his campaign against education. There was a group offering money to UCLA students to tape their instructors being "leftist" and another site that was offering IPODS to college students if they got video of a "left-wing" professor.

It's a witch hunt. I wonder if I had wired up my kid and had him tape his social studies teacher, who spouted right wing talking points all day, if that would outrage anyone.

Probably not. It didn't even outrage me to know that my kid was hearing the "other side" in school. I figured that was the point, and made sure he heard the counter argument when he got home.

I guess these RW parents don't feel so secure about their beliefs. They think their children have to practice "intellectual abstinence" in order to stay party-pure.
