The Democrat Party is tone deaf.
Despite Americans pushing back against radical left-wing policies the party seems to be doubling down.
And what this Democrat said about a parent’s role in their child’s education left jaws on the floor.
The 2021 statewide elections in Virginia made it clear that parents have had it with the brainwashing occurring in government schools.
Current Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin ran on a platform of giving parents more control in what their kids are being taught.
Parents are rallying together across the nation to demand that schools allow them to see what is actually being taught in classrooms.
But the Democrat Party continues to prove how out of touch it is with the American people by pushing radical education policies and admitting that they don’t want parents involved.
For example, Wisconsin Democrat Representative Lee Snodgrass recently wrote on social media that parents who want to have control over their children’s education need to home school them on their own dime.
“If parents want to ‘have a say’ in their child’s education, they should home school or pay for private school tuition out of their family budget,” Snodgrass tweeted.
This belief that once a child enters a school that parents no longer have any say in what happens isn’t just ridiculous, it’s downright scary.
Within hours of the tone-deaf tweet, Snodgress was forced to delete the tweet and apologize publicly.
“I deleted my Tweet since it was lacking in nuance and easily misinterpreted. I wouldn’t want anyone to think that parents do not have a role in their child’s public education-I sure did. I encourage all parents to engage in voting for school board, join PTO and meet with teachers,” the follow up tweet read.
This is, of course, just a lie from another left-wing radical because everyone knows they don’t truly want parents having any clue what’s happening in the classroom because they can’t brainwash children with adults looking over their shoulder.
But Snodgrass played the game.
“Of course parents need to have a say in their kids’ education and their classrooms! I’m a parent, and I have a say, as should every parent. I shouldn’t have been cavalier or glib—that wasn’t my intention, and I apologize. Carry on!” the Wisconsin Democrat concluded.
Democrats do not want parents involved in their children’s education and they will stop at nothing to ensure they are the only ones brainwashing the youngest and most innocent among us.
