Government Indoctrination Centers Drive Passion in Republican Base

I’m heartened to see communities trying to take control of their schools back. I hope they are successful

But the issue that transformed Yoder, a stay-at-home mother, from a reliable voter to the kind of person who brings three young children to an evening campaign rally was not her Christian values or her pocketbook.


It was something even more personal, she said: what her children learn in school.


“The past year has revealed a ton to me,” Yoder, 41, said as she waited in this northern Virginia exurb for a speech by Glenn Youngkin, the Republican candidate for governor. “The more I’ve listened and paid attention, the more that I see what’s happening in schools and on college campuses. And the stuff I see, I don’t want corrupting my children.”

    I think it is a good sign that Republicans have started fighting back on the emotionally charged level for inciting voting. It does work, and I think anger generation is healthier than fear generation.

    Well, the base has started fighting back. Our cocktail circuit elected representatives are still hoping it all goes away.

    Those cocktail-loaded circuit leeches begin with Vos and LeMahieu. My (R) rep is as useless as t*ts on a bull, too.
