The other day, Sheboygan Lutheran got the "bump" they needed from Fox News! But to make this story even more appealing to those who literally get goose (step) bumps hearing kids shout "stand with Walker," Fox news took the lead from school principal Al Holzheimer, who complained he was now getting "threatening" phone calls from people who identified themselves as "union members." You can't make the following stuff up.
Fox reporter: "Remember they didn't mean this to be political, they're saying it was a pep rally. Well then the school started getting these threats from people who identified themselves Megyn, as "union members."What did Holzheimer consider "threats?"
Holzheimer: "IRS is going to come, and ah, ah, crawl all over your building, the fundamentalist, you guys are a new cause now...Um, that's pretty (garble) what I heard in my voice mail...how could you support such an evil person as Scott Walker."Real threatening...? But the punch line for me was this:
Reporter: "One student put it this way, he said this was nothing more than a episode of school spirit that coincidentally...went political."Inadvertent political chanting? And who has this kind of Fox News connection?
The whole missed point was the rank hypocrisy of conservatives who whined and complained about anti-Walker "union indoctrinated" students who showed support for their teachers, and their drooling approval of their own "stand with Walker" students zombies.
Fox News Reporter: "The principal by the way said, they're reminding these union callers that these after all, are high school students that they're making threats against."Getting back to the original point I was making on a previous blog; If this is the kind of conservative indoctrination going on in private religious schools, should taxpayer money go to these schools in the form of educational vouchers. Keep in mind that there are no rules banning politics from private schools that take public money, unlike our highly scrutinized public schools. This may be one of the biggest flaws in the voucher movement yet, and something Democratic lawmakers should focus on.
