Tinfoil Hat Alert!

Sex Education Is An Evil Liberal Plot To Create… Democratic Voters?

Oh my dear god. It’s official: The inside of the right wing brain looks like an ant farm that’s been shaken up. And dipped in LSD. And then set on fire. There just isn’t any other way to explain this:
“The only reason schools would teach sex-ed, Holsten explains, is that educators are playing the long game in trying to increase the number of Democratic voters:
‘People say to me, why would they teach such awful things to our children?
If you go deep down and you connect those dots, you see that when children are desensitized to sexual things, that affects their ability at a later date to bond with a spouse. And so if you have somebody who can’t bond, they’re not going to have a stable marriage.
When you have unstable, broken households, how do they vote? Democrat. So this has a very evil underlying intent.’”
That’s Majorie Holsten, a lunatic activist out of Cincinnati explaining how Common Core is poised to destroy America. If she keeps up this level of crazy, she’s bound to either land a job at Fox or win a seat in Congress. Probably both.

One of the worst things about the modern right wing is the complete detachment from reality. The conservative entertainment complex has them sealed so tightly in an echo chamber they never have to be exposed to unpleasant truths. 

Obviously, it’s great for the right wing media outlets. They have a captive audience they can manipulate like silly putty using fear and outrage. There’s some serious cash to be made conning people that have absolutely no critical thinking skills left. 

Unfortunately, it’s terrible for the conservative base and even worse for the country.

The upside is that Holsten and people like her are so busy making sure everyone knows how crazy they are, it’s just a matter of time until the entire conservative movement is discredited for a generation or two. Or three. Hopefully, we can fend off the oligarchs and hold the country together long enough for that to happen so we can start to fix the last 30+ years of damage.
