It was in Sunday’s Mesa Tribune, an opinion piece by Mike McClellan titled “The Latest Cause for the Crazies Is Common Core.”
I read it with some sadness. Why is it so hard, I thought, for the Left to discuss issues without name calling?
But I know the answer to that. It’s because of the basic insecurity they have about their positions.
I suspect that Mike McClellan really senses that the fears many of us have about federal control of our school curriculum are justified. They now control the menu, so of course the curriculum is the next step.
What is frustrating is the “head in the sand” Republicans who go along with this. I guess they’re intimidated by Leftists like McClellan tossing around nasty words like “crazy.” But if there is one theme to our political history in this country over the last hundred years, it is the inexorable advance of national control of everything. And they just go along.
