In September, State Senator Kerry Roberts (R-Springfield, BS, Lipscomb U.) declared that he wanted to eliminate higher education (presumably only for women, because abortion) which would save America. His excuse: he was on talk radio. He (still) hasn’t apologized.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Republican Tennessee lawmaker says he supports getting rid of higher education because he argues it would cut off the “liberal breeding ground.”

Sen. Kerry Roberts of Springfield called for eliminating higher education while speaking about attending a recent abortion legislative hearing on his conservative radio talk show on Sept. 2.

Roberts specifically called out one activist who testified in favor of protecting abortion rights. He asserted without evidence that the woman’s beliefs were a “product of higher education” and claimed that getting rid of higher education would “save America.”

These people have no shame and will be destroyed at Armageddon by the Kingdom of God. All of this has been foretold many centuries in advance as to what would be happening in the time of the end of this system of things. Its days are down to near nothing.

Wouldn’t it be easier to just put all white “southerners “ in re-education camps?

Education makes people more intelligent. Which can lead to being more liberal. And that’s a good thing. Trump said he loves the uneducated. Because you HAVE to be an idiot to believe in him.

Education cannot change stupidity, only ignorance.

When “too much” education makes people disagree with you, It means you’re wrong, you chucklehead, not that education is the problem. That you don’t see that argues compellingly for why more, not less, education being urgently needed, by demonstrating the lunacy the poorly educated and ignorant so often fall prey to.

Yup! There it is! Typical Republican! If we were all just uneducated and ignorant, everything would be just hunky dory! These traitors and enablers could and would turn this nation into a fascist state. Poor Orwell must be turning in his grave!
