A scary story about an innocent girl.
We were gathered under General Draper’s watchful gaze – about three dozen in all – Republicans, TEA Partiers, and assorted Conservative activists. We were awaiting the arrival of Governor Patrick – the star of the evening. This was one of his scheduled ‘listening’ stops.
Breathlessly she ran towards us in the sweltering 90º heat. She had a clipboard and announced herself as working with a local Democrat committee – collecting names and e-mails.
She was so naïve and innocent she hadn’t even noticed our protest signs. None of us are very Democrat-friendly in these times.
So I took the offered clipboard, and began my interrogation. DANGER READERS, the ending here is a tad scary.
First – be assured she is absolutely adorable, sweet, and well-intended. Aren’t they all at that age?
I asked her to look at our posters – and if she knew anything about Governor Patrick. She didn’t. So I determined she is 18, and has just finished her freshman year at college – studying international relations.
[Hmmmm – studying International Relations – in college – at age 18 – at a Deval Patrick event doing political work – and doesn't know anything about the Gov? Hmmm, where HAS she been?]
Suddenly sensing that I was face-to-face with one of the Commonwealth’s deliberately under-educated high school grads, – I asked her the key test question:
“Can you explain the relationship between the 2nd and the 1st Amendment?”
The whirlpool look in her eyes gave it all away. She had been issued into the world by her local high school as a programed Stepford Democrat – with no knowledge base, – just an assortment of slogans and platitudes.
Her school system saw fit to graduate her without knowledge, without facts, without even the curiosity to seek out facts and decide for herself. Multi-generational Democrat without knowledge or analytical tools.
She was struggling to recall what the 2nd Amendment is. She couldn’t.
My buddy Tim R. offered her a copy of the Constitution. You’da thunk he’d just tried to hand her a porn magazine – she was so reluctant to take it.
So I gave her a RRB business card – and asked her to go on the blog – and to research that KEY relationship between the 2nd and the 1st. And I told her she can contact me any time if she doesn’t understand something. Maybe she’ll do that research, – or maybe she’ll just dismiss me as a wacky old man.
We also gave her a quick quiz [and the answers] on the national and state debt. She was duly taken aback to learn her share – and that she’ll have to pay double since only about half of Americans pay taxes. Why hadn’t she been taught about that?
But even Deval’s 2-hour session of pretending to care and lying to voters was not as depressing as realizing that our liberal union-infested schools are turning out hundreds of thousands of kids every year – all just like her – intentionally uneducated.
And of course the liberal colleges are welcoming these useful blank clones with open arms. She has already been enlisted into the liberal movement – with no clue who or what her governor is, – or what our founding documents mean to her today – and in our future.
Young Lady – if you read this – please study that little book Tim gave you. DO feel free to call with questions. As a future voter and future decision-maker, you are too decent a young lady – too nice a person – to be part of the socialist movement now sweeping our country.
