We have been saying this for ages, and Democrat apologists have been denying it, but now there is no doubt that a key element of leftist strategy is to indoctrinate and brainwash the youth. That's what Hilary Clinton meant when she began mouthing the supposed "old African proverb" that "it takes a village to raise a child". That's why Democrat controlled Boards of Education (Or "Board of Educations" as Obama would say) pimp constantly for year-round school for kids. So that the young'uns would have a constant, uninterrupted diet of leftist propaganda. (That's also why they oppose home schooling).
Now we have proof positive.
Yesterday at the Democrat Convention in Philadelphia, some speaker - we believe it was the deranged harridan Elizabeth "Pocahontas" Warren - said that these Presidential elections were important because in them we choose "Who gets to shape your child for the next four years".
PARENTS get to "shape their children" NOT some elected official. And those whom parents enlist to assist, including teachers in public and private schools, need to be brought to heel by those parents if they get out of line. This idea that it is government's job to "shape your child" is one of the most dangerous things to come out of American Statist Progressivism.
