These neo-feudalism fascists are sickening.
We got our education, money, education, et. al., and you fuckers who aren’t sufficiently well-connected to snag any of the jobs that our corporate buddies haven’t shipped to Pakistan and India can watch your children grow up to be epsilon double-minuses unless they want to submit to the church-run education ‘system.’ Public education? Bwaaahhha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!
In the comments to the post where this video was embedded one commenter’s remarks stood out, because the person claimed to be progressive, but defended Michelle Rhee to the core. This comment in particular was interesting:
“Michelle is a pioneer in education reform, unafraid to challenge the status quo and offer real solutions. Her policies are neither left nor right, but driven by research and the desire to bring accountability to the education system.”
A check over on Twitter shows that GardenStBadger, as he is known on the Huffington Post, recently changed his twitter handle to Arman Belding. Arman Belding worked for Joe Trippi in the Washington DC area as a social media coordinator, before posting an excited announcement in May that he was taking a job with StudentsFirst.
So it appears that in addition to hiring away Hari Sevugan, Rhee is also employing some astroturf types who know their way around social media to push back on the truth about her: She is not progressive, does not have progressive ideas, and is funded by those who want to see public education die altogether.
Remember: The only reason that public education appears not to work is that those who don’t want public education to exist at all ensure that it doesn’t work.
