Starting slowly here, WKOW's Greg Neumann reminds Pridemore that using the old "blame the teachers union" excuse doesn't hold any weight now that Act 10 passed. Doesn't matter. Pridemore brags:
"We've kind of unraveled some issues that need to be addressed. And some of the liberal thinking that's been going on at DPI over the years..."
This is killer stuff, and something that'll give you a chuckle when you head into the voting booth.
Here, Pridemore rips the new common core standards in our public schools, claiming they're part of a European plot to dumb down America for competitive reasons. Why would they do that? Pridemore says it's all coming from the UN, and guys like Bill Ayers. Would I kid you? You'll laugh, cry, and vote Tony Evers:
Pridemore: "So if you were any other country in the world, wouldn't you want to maybe knock America down a few pegs or two...to me, that's what's going on here, and we need to be aware of it..."He's nuts, and it's fun to watch the accident:
Neumann: "Where is this coming from though, in terms of you feeling like it is something that, I don't know if you want to call it a plot against America, where do you get that information?"
Pridemore: "Well it's coming from the UN. The UN I would argue has never been really a friend of America...you look at some of the left's ideas, even Bill Ayers has weighed in on education being one of the major factors in changing a country. If we can get the kids early and often with a change of ideas, America was founded on freedom, and all this detracts, ah, from that freedom."
