From my Campaign Website: Joel John and the Amazing Teacher Gag Vote


"You cannot administer a wicked law impartially. You can only destroy. You can only punish. And I warn you that a wicked law like Cholera destroys all it touches, it's upholders as well as its deniers.

Don't you see that if you take a law like CRT and make a crime to teach it in the public schools, tomorrow you make it a crime in the private schools. And then you can make it a crime to read about it. Then you may turn Catholic against Protestant. And Protestant against Protestant. And try to foist your own religion on the mind of man. If you can do one, you can do it all. Because fanaticism and ignorance is forever busy and needs feeding.

And soon, with banners flying and drums beating, we'll be marching backwards. . .BACKWARDS! To those glorious days of the 16th century when bigots burned the man who dared bring intelligence and enlightenment to the human mind!"

Spoken in a 1960 film adaptation of a 1956 Broadway play. . .and its more relevant now than it was then!
