KNIGHT: Culture-war heroine gets her due
Alice Moore opened parents’ eyes to liberal indoctrination in textbooks
Question of the Day
From the powerful national teachers unions to academia, what former U.S. Education Secretary William Bennett calls “the blob” is clearly on the side of the radical left. The U.S. Department of Energy has even created a school curriculum called Solar Decathlon, which tells kids that solar power is moral, unlike the evil oil and gas industries, which probably are run by fundamentalist Christians. OK, I’m exaggerating, but it’s green propaganda.
If parents think their schools are safe, they’re whistling in the dark. In Virginia’s Loudoun County, the most conservative in the Washington area, School Board Chairman John Stevens boasted recently to The Washington Post Magazine that after a 2008 library challenge to the homosexual penguin book “And Tango Makes Three,” more copies are available because of donations by families - including his.
In the name of “tolerance,” the left is working hard to indoctrinate children. But the spirit of the 1974 Kanawha County textbook uprising is alive and well - when parents wise up.
Alice Moore’s award is a reminder not only of her courage but that of thousands who have stood between children and the “blob” that would turn them into Earth worshippers who hate America, capitalism and Christianity.
