What do you say about a country where a talented and dedicated high school teacher can be fired on a dime because some dimwit parents feel offended on the basis of ideology and psychological insecurity?
That country is called America.
The story was reported HERE.
Pull your fucking self together America. You are the planet's superpower. Your religious fanaticism and over-the-top insecurities and over reactions cost lives and destroy nations. Get a grip. Find some balance. Teachers are suppose to challenge their students (and parents by extension). That is what education is about, a battlefield of ideas not a fucking cabbage patch for growing automatons.
If you don't find a way to put the intellectual discourse and challenge back into your schools and bring the real world and its complexities into your classrooms then you are headed towards fascism and a lot of us outsiders (the rest of the world) are fucked in the ass.
Diversity. Debate. Reasoned responses. Self knowledge. Confidence of self.
Stop this "protect our children from ideas" shit. Otherwise they will not learn to discern ideas and will become pathetic automatons who only discern what is different in order to attack it.
You are taking us straight to hell.
You had a libertarian spirit of great confidence in self and you are pissing it away for outside ideological certainty that must be imposed by force. This is not a bed you want to sleep in.
Wake up America. For God's sake, wake up. Fucking Jesus.

America has gone mad

Well said, sir! Excellent use of tone, too. Wholly appropriate for the sheer absurdity of the situation.
I couldn't agree more. I'm working on an essay on fascism in America, I dunno, I think that fascism is here, it's growing, and shit like this is EXACTLY why I draw that conclusion.
