That’s what you get when you combine Ayn Rand’s self-absorbed the-world-revolves-around-me mindset with the bigotry and intolerance of “Christians.” Not Jesus Himself, of course; just the Far Right’s re-invented version who schmoozed with moneylenders and drove the beggars from the temple, and said “Let’s all cast stones at that evil sinner.”
Tampa Liberty School will be holding a weeklong seminar this summer. Their mission is to teach 8-to-12-year-olds how to be selfish and self-centered AND how to be hateful and sanctimonious at the same time. Oh, and a big dollop of American Exceptionalism will be thrown in too.
The children’s indoctrination phrases will include:
“America is good,” “I believe in God,” and “I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who [sic] I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.”
Grammar apparently isn't part of the curriculum.
Tampa Liberty School is run by volunteers from the 912 Project and was organized by Jeff Lukens, who said:
“We want to impart to our children what our nation is about, and what they may or may not be told.”
He admitted that he doesn’t know anything about the public school curriculum, but:
“I do know they have a lot of political correctness. We are a faithful people, and when you talk about natural law, you have to talk about God. When you take that out of the discussion, you miss the whole thing.”
Tampa Liberty School will be in session every morning from July 11th through the 15th. There’s room for forty students, and right now only eight have signed up.
If you want to indoctrinate your child, you still have time — but you have to hurry.
