Recently, in New Hampshire at a House Education Committee meeting, state Sen. Jeanne Dietsch argued that only “well-educated” parents should be permitted to exercise choice over their children’s education.
If you think I’m taking Dietsch out of context, read the quotes for yourself.
“This idea of parental choice, that’s great if the parent is well-educated. There are some families that’s perfect for. But to make it available to everyone? No. I think you’re asking for a huge amount of trouble.”
Her remark was so asinine that Republican state Rep. Glenn Cordelli seemed bewildered by the remark.
Cordelli even offered Dietsch an opportunity to walk it back.
“Is it your belief that only well-educated parents can make proper decisions for what’s in the best interest of their children?”
Dietsch’s next move would make even the most foot-in-mouth prone politicians (this means you, Joe Biden) shake their heads in dismay.
After a short back-and-forth, Dietsch said, “If the dad’s a carpenter, and you want to become a carpenter, then yes — listen to your dad.”
I’m starting to think liberals are playing their own game of “Who can come off as the party’s most pompous ass?”
Between Nancy Pelosi showing off her fancy ice cream collection in sub-zero freezers and Biden implying that he is owed the black vote — not to mention the gaggle of C-List celebrities recording cringe-worthy PSAs into their iPhones … these beautiful people make Marie Antoinette seem down-to-earth.
A carpenter, in the eyes of Dietsch, is not intelligent enough to make decisions concerning their own children’s schooling.
I’m sure the Senator would deem it appropriate for a “well-educated” Harvard grad, like herself, to make those same decisions.
I wonder though, whether a carpenter could gain permission to make parental decisions if he or she promised to adhere to a Dietsch-approved woke curriculum?
In the Democrat Orwellian utopia, the government isn’t only here to help you. They are also here to tell you how stupid you are.
Although I am a bit surprised at how blunt Sen. Dietsch’s comments were, it is hardly the first time a Democrat has slipped up and revealed their contempt for the working class.
Remember when Mike Bloomberg said that he could teach “anyone” to be a farmer?
Couple that remark with his astoundingly dull personality and it doesn’t take too much “gray matter” to figure out why Bloomberg isn’t the Democratic nominee.
And who can forget John Kerry’s botched joke back in 2006?
“You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”
But when it comes to snobby intellects showing their disdain for regular people, the team at “Morning Joe” takes the cake.
In 2018, MSNBC analyst Elise Jordan ridiculed the GOP for having faith in the abilities of then-Chair of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA.
“Why are Republicans trusting Devin Nunes to be their oracle of truth? A former dairy farmer who House Intel staffers refer to as ‘Secret Agent Man,’ because he has no idea what’s going on.”
Jordan got the whole panel laughing with that one.
I can think of a few trustworthy farmers, Elise.
Namely, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.
But perhaps they didn’t teach you about the Founding Fathers at Yale.
And who proved to be more trustworthy on Russiagate — the dairy farmer or Adam Schiff of Harvard Law?
The sad reality is that the left looks down on the very people that they claim to care about.
They don’t just ridicule the working class, they grossly underestimate them.
They underestimate the farmers, the carpenters and the soldiers.
But there is a former reality TV star living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue who might remind the working class of America that sometimes the best thing to be in life is underestimated.
