Just like almost all of Hollywood and 99.8% of the music industry, it seems the radio DJs that spin the records (pardon the ancient vernacular) are also majority liberal. I’m sure it’s an industry thing.
I will occasionally listen to broadcast music radio in the morning on my way to the office. Most music radio morning drive programs have their local morning show crew, that between songs, discuss trivial current events like the Kardashian’s, or now Bruce Jenner. Nothing of substance – just junk catering to the pop culture, low information crowd.
Yesterday, the morning personalities on a Boston rock station were discussing the black family members who were arrested for cheering on their graduating children in Mississippi. Evidently the school rule was to hold all applause until the end of the ceremony. I get that – many schools have this rule.
I assume it’s to keep the ceremony moving along, but it also has a “feel-good” liberal element to it. You see, we wouldn’t want to upset the little children who have no one to cheer for them.
Anyway, charges were filed against the families by the superintendent of public schools. Well, the local radio personalities were beside themselves over this incident. Although, surprisingly no racial component was brought up at the time, the radio folks thought this was positively Hitlerian, to arrest someone over that.
I was curious what other leftists had to say on the matter, so I did a quick search of the web and found many liberal sites also complaining about the incident. For example, the Daily Kos, the leftist of leftists wrote: “At a time where the nation is talking about problems in the United States with mass incarceration in the over criminalization of society, rarely has such a clear example of African-Americans being overcharged for every day behaviors as this. It’s preposterous.”
I have to say, I agree with the overall sentiment – that this was preposterous. But then I thought – this is a public school superintendent. What are the odds he’s a conservative? Slim to none – and Slim just left.
Almost certainly the superintendent is a public school, liberal education hack. So my next thought was – okay – the leftists that do vote, both support and vote for liberal politicians, who in turn appoint these pointy-headed liberal academics to fill positions such as school superintendent, who in turn make the rules.
So what are these leftists complaining about? You know the Communists at the Daily Kos support the farthest left candidates they can find and try their level best to get them into office, on a national, state and local level. And then they have the nerve to complain when an authoritarian such as the superintendent uses that power to crack down on some black families who also probably voted straight Democrat ticket during Obama’s last re-election.
Yahoo News , another ultra-liberal site had a similar complaint about an elementary school cafeteria kitchen manager in Colorado, Della Curry, who was fired for giving away free lunches to hungry students.
Della says the school policy is to take the kids food away when they are unable to pay and throw it away – right in front of them. Instead of doing this, she would just give them the meal. And for this, she was fired.
According to Yahoo Parenting, the school district website states that “Decisions regarding food service workers are made by the district Food and Nutrition Services Department and not by a school’s principal.”
So again – what are the odds that the Colorado District Food and Nutrition Services Department is awash with conservatives? Right-oh! It’s almost a guarantee they are overflowing with leftist government hacks.
So I ask once again. What is the problem? These are the jackbooted authoritarians you folks elect every time. This is who these people are, yet you keep voting for them. These are the very people who made the rules you’re whining about.
Just like the violence in Baltimore is a direct result of decades of unencumbered liberal rule, so to are these public school related policies.
I have an idea. How about you leftists stop complaining about the people you voted into office and start supporting people who know a little about freedom and have a little common sense.
