GOP Lawmaker Wants To End Higher Education To 'Save America' From Liberals



Conservative Christians fear education: Tennessee State Senator Kerry Roberts wants to “save America” by putting an end to higher education because it is a “liberal breeding ground.”

The Hill reports:

A Tennessee state GOP lawmaker has called for getting rid of the entire higher education system, asserting that such a move would “save America.”

State Sen. Kerry Roberts made the remarks while speaking on his conservative talk radio show. He addressed his problems with the higher education system while discussing a recent legislative hearing focused on abortion legislation.

1. These F'en people are so damn stupid and out of control. Right, let's put the US at the very

bottom of countries into the future. That should work well. Maybe they can get a job wiping butts of advanced countries.

4. I guess next time this guy or anyone in his family has a medical emergency or such, that...

they won't use the doctor's services, because they are liberals (or worse), and he's 'saving America!'. What an idiot.

5. An uneducated public is easy to manage & manipulate.

As people do better, they start voting like Republicans - unless they have too much education and vote Democratic, which proves there can be too much of a good thing.

The GOP has been playing the long game, filling Boards of Education with right wingers since the 1980's, while the dems have been in reactionary mode since a two-bit actor poked fun at the word liberal.

7. No more doctors. No more teachers of any kind.

No Vet to take your furry companion to when they get sick.

Let's see, what else would we eventually not have? No more astrophysicists discovering amazing things about the Universe. No more medical research to cure diseases. No more engineers to build new bridges, or architects to design them.

I wonder if he went to school beyond 8th grade? And if so, how did he resist the horror of liberal thought?

I'm being reminded of the thing I've seen recently on FB stating instead of Algebra 2, high schools need to teach consumer stuff, like how to manage debt, what credit cards and a mortgage cost, and so on. Not instead of, but also. Without algebra 2 no one would go on to take any other higher math, and would be effectively shut out of a serious number of professions.
