Right-Wing Rant: Learning Sex-Ed Can Turn You into a Democrat

A conservative activist and home-school expert advised parents that if their kids took sex-ed in school they just might end up liberals.

Warning about a liberal plot to desensitize kids to sex and possibly even make them horny, Marjorie Holsten warned that the liberal’s Common Core rules on sexual education were just plain obscene.

 “People say to me, why would they teach such awful things to our children?” she told host Jan Markell during a recent interview. “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.”

She also warned that once these desensitized children were all grown-up they would do something much worse than even cheat on their spouse or break up their marriage. They might even become Democrats.

“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,” she said, apparently trying to argue that knowing how babies were made and all about gross STD’s turned you liberal.

Not stopping there, she also suggested the liberal plot extended into all areas of the Common Core and would eventually punish teachers if they do not preach to their classes that “Obama’s the messiah.”

She then concluded that the liberal brainwashing/Common Core was so terrible that conservatives need an uprising (hopefully one that will go better than Operation American Spring).

“One of the insidious things about Common Core is that teachers get their raises and get their tenure based on how the students do on the test, so if a teacher does not teach something that for a Christian teacher would be absolutely repugnant to their values, the children are not going to do well on this test,” the fear-monger stressed. “If the teacher doesn’t teach that Obama’s the messiah, the children aren’t going to answer that question as desired by the Common Core grading system and so the teacher might not be able to retain her grade. So really we need an uprising.”

    They are going to make teacher teach children that Obama is the next coming of Christ ???!!! Are these people insane?

    • GammaRae

      Yes, they’re insane if they truly believe that’s what Common Core will force them to teach. But then, most of us KNOW that RWNJs are insane, we didn’t need this nutjob to let us know.

    I have issues with Common Core, but these aren’t it!

    We Liberals call such folk “Wacked-out, batshit-crazy loonies”. Don’t you think that pretty well sums her up?

  • Michelle Lee-Reid

    It’s funny, I’ve given standardized tests many times and I have yet to see a question about Obama or the messiah. Hmmmmm. What a nut case.

    In the interest of fairness, I have searched around, trying
    to find a more flattering picture of Marjorie Holsten. However, I can’t find a
    picture of her in which her eyes DON’T look like this.

    Oh the Conservaturds….they are ALWAYS good for a laugh.

  • J. Kevin Michel

    It must be truly frightening to live in such a delusional, hallicinatory world full of evil, lies, and cabalistic conspiracies aimed at you and your children. Hmmm…. Perhaps she just tripped on some bad acid when she was younger. I had a college room mate who thought the same way.
