Former President Barack Hussein Obama’s Education Secretary Arne Duncan, who openly boasted of weaponizing schools to turn children into “green” so-called “global citizens,” said President Donald Trump wants American children to be ignorant because he has authoritarian tendencies. Seriously.
Speaking to the fakest of the fake news outlets, also known as the Clinton News Network or CNN, Duncan basically accused Trump of trying to dumb down America’s children. “I’m not sure President Trump wants to have the best-educated workforce,” the radicalized former “education” boss said. “I think it doesn’t play to his authoritarian tendencies.”
Ironically, the bizarre comments come from the establishment’s key man in terms of imposing the dumbed-down Common Core national standards on America. The only two subject matter experts selected to serve on the standards’ validation committee refused to sign off, citing dumbing down and even incorrect math. The results have been catastrophic.
Duncan also attacked the current administration for not having a “strategy” to “educate” children. “I think they’re really struggling,” he told the Communist News Network about the Trump administration. “There’s no vision. There’s no meaningful strategy.”
It appears that Duncan has never read the U.S. Constitution, which does not grant the feds any power over education at all — much less the power to have a national “strategy” for educating children. Trump, though, indicated that he understood that on the campaign trail, even proposing that the U.S. Department of Education be shut down.
Beyond working to impose dumbed-down national standards on America, Duncan also partnered with the UN’s communist- and Islamist-controlled “education” agency UNESCO. He even called the globalist outfit his “global partner” in turning children into “green” (read: brainwashed Marxist) “global citizens,” quoting a communist terrorist about how “education” is a “weapon” to “change the world.”
Illustrating his real agenda, Duncan also touted government boarding schools, saying there are “just certain kids we should have 24/7.” Under his watch, so-called “full-service community schools,” dubbed parental replacement centers by critics, also proliferated with federal support. The monstrous “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA) was also put in place by Duncan, in cooperation with establishment Republicans in Congress.
Finally, in other interviews hawking his new book, Duncan spent a great deal of time shilling for different unconstitutional policies — especially more gun control. Earlier this year, he proposed a boycott of government indoctrination centers until more gun-control schemes were adopted. “What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?” he wondered, as if gun laws kept people safe (see Mexico). “My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?”
Unfortunately, nobody took him up on it. The children certainly would have been safer!
The hypocrisy of former dumber-down-in-chief Arne “Common Core” Duncan accusing Trump of wanting to dumb down American students is off the charts. As American children get dumber and dumber, and more and more indoctrinated, it is Duncan and his extremist colleagues who share much of the blame.
But ultimately, Duncan is just a cog in the indoctrination machine — a machine that must be completely uprooted and dismantled if America and freedom are going to survive over the long term.
