After blaming "government schools" for bringing America “to the point that a man like Barack Obama could be sworn in as president of the United States," conservative radio host Neal Boortz told attendees at the Tea Party Unity Rally that the "Democrats, the looters, the moochers, [and] the parasites" were all going to vote to give themselves "access to your pocket."
As such, it was vitally important for every Tea Party activist and Republican to find somebody who shares their views but who does not normally vote and convince them to vote in this election ... even if you need to bribe 'em:
Conservative talk show host Neal Boortz, speaking at yesterday’s Unity Rally 2012 in Tampa ahead of the Republican National Convention, denounced public schools as “government schools” that are “forced upon us.” Boortz blamed “100 years of government education” for bringing America “to the point that a man like Barack Obama could be sworn in as president of the United States.”
Boortz directed the crowd to change the way they speak about public schools – calling them “government schools” instead. He also called on the audience to “preach school choice,” by which meant efforts to defund public schools and provide taxpayer dollars for religious and private schools and homeschooling.
A number of public officials spoke at the rally, including Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and Reps. Jason Chaffetz and Michele Bachmann. Kleefisch and Chaffetz both followed Boortz but neither stood up for public schools. One has to wonder if they, like Boortz, also hate public education:
Let me change your language on two things. […]
They are not public schools, they are government schools. They are owned by, staffed by, operated by and forced upon by the government.
And, ladies and gentlemen, it is 100 years of government education that led us to the point that a man like Barack Obama could be sworn in as president of the United States.
