Bam! States Sledge-Hammering Common Core’s Educational Tyranny?

Written by Kevin Fobbs on March 27, 2014

Indiana became the first state to take an affirmative stand against Common Core’s educational indoctrinating tyranny this week when Governor Mike Pence signed a law to kick it out of state schools, according to the Indianapolis Star. Ever since Barack Obama came to office, the heavy hand of the federal government became an anchor around the necks of students and parents who yearned for educational freedom, and instead received socialistic slavery.

Now comes that time where Americans must decide whether the comfort of Common Core educational shackles have become too heavy a burden for your children to bear. It appears everywhere a parent has turned there is one more aspect of Common Core’s indoctrinating influence on students; from use of accepting books with gay and same-sex parenting themes, to the incorrect interpretation of the U.S. Constitutional rights.

It does not matter whether your child’s school has bowed down to the educational masters in Washington who are the caretakers of the brave new world view where government is the parent of students. You child’s school will eventually become infected with the deadly Common Core virus unless parents decide to reclaim their right to local control and local educational determinism.

The wave of opposition against Common Core is surging even as other states like Indiana seriously pursue their own battle to protect their children’s educational future. According to the Indianapolis Star, the tide is turning in favor of the Tea Party state leaders and conservative parents who have been able to witness 200 anti-Common Core bills being introduced in a number of state legislatures across the nation.

The hue and cry of patriotism has been stoked in the furnaces of white hot anger that school administrations are savaging standards in order to make all kids mindless, thoughtless and without God- given uniqueness. This Common Core embracing of one size fits all has truly become one size must fit all. Every child, including yours will become one of the socialistic educational collective.

Of course there are states that pre-dated Indiana’s revolutionary war stand against Common Core. According to Arizona Capitol Times, Texas, Alaska, Virginia and Nebraska, did not drink the Common Core Kool-Aid and instead drank from the refreshing lake of individualism and freedom. Those Tea Party and conservative organizations’ leadership joined with conservative parental leaders in successfully turning aside the wave of federal-minded education officials that other state succumbed to.

With Indiana’s stand on Monday, Governor Pence made clear the objective of the many-pronged goals in signing the legislation. Pence stressed Senate Bill 91 has paved the way for other states to take back control of their student’s education regarding what they are taught. Forty-five states have gone on record adopting Common Core Standards.

Many parents and conservative educational leaders have actually been joined in part in the battle to overturn Common Core with bipartisan opposition to it. This growing, loose confederation of opponents may very well sound the eventual death knell for Common Core in the near future. Take a look at New York, which is one of the bluest states of the blue liberal bastions. Now it is seeing growing opposition to Common Core by public teacher unions, reported the Arizona Capitol Times.

Well, fellow patriots, it is hammering time and like Joshua walking around the walls of Jericho it is time to join the patriotic armies of opposition to Common Core. Each hammer used will create a crack of freedom for kids and for their educational future. So become the incredible Hulk and show Obama and all the defenders of Common Core what educational freedom means.
