RUSH: Jennifer in Floyds Knobs, Indiana. It’s great to have you on the program. Welcome.
CALLER: Thank you so much for taking my call, Rush. I’m calling because my daughter’s third grade teacher is making them take a four-day, one-hour-each-day ecodrama, which is teaching them to keep their hometown clean and green as part of their science.
RUSH: Let me make sure I heard you right here. A four-day, one-day ecodrama?
CALLER: Four days, one hour each day.
RUSH: For four days a week?
CALLER: Force four days total. It was supposed to be last week but it snowed. (laughing)
RUSH: And the teacher gets a certificate or something? It’s something teacher has to do?
CALLER: No. She got it approved by the school board. But she’s making the students do it for ‘science.’
RUSH: Now, is the premise here that there’s global warming?
CALLER: They do not —
RUSH: There’s really nothing wrong with cleaning up messes, and there’s nothing wrong with being against pollution.
CALLER: Oh, I’m against pollution.
RUSH: Nobody wants to purposely pollute. It’s the auspices that come into question. Is this being done ‘to save the planet’?
CALLER: Well, one of their have-to-be words is ‘green living.’
RUSH: Okay. Well, that’s not good because what that means is one little sheet of toilet paper.
CALLER: (giggling) Help us.
RUSH: All kinds of little weird wacko stuff like that. So how’s your kid dealing with this?
CALLER: Well, my husband sent an e-mail to both the principal and the teacher saying we did not want our daughter in this class because we know where it’s going. So the teacher made a point of saying, ‘Well, what am I supposed to do with your daughter?’ and I said, ‘Gladly put her someplace quiet to learn, to do her work.’ But she is saying it’s approved by the school board so therefore it’s part of their science grade.
RUSH: So she has to attend this stuff?
CALLER: That’s what they’re saying.
CALLER: That’s what I’m calling you for.
RUSH: You’re worried the kid’s going to not get a good grade if you pull her out of this.
CALLER: Other we’re still pulling her. We’re still pulling her.
CALLER: I’m just asking you for advice —
CALLER: — on how to respond to the teacher who is offended by us not wanting her in there
RUSH: It’s very simple. You tell the teacher that it is a hoax, and you tell the teacher that the primary architect of this has admitted that there’s been no global warming — man-made our otherwise — since 1995, that the data was all made up. It’s all over the European press. The State-Controlled Media in the United States will not report this or hasn’t reported it. But you tell the teacher that she’s teaching them a lie. that if she’s teaching global warming, man-made global warming that she is teaching a hoax and you will not put up with it. That’s what I would do. It’s easy for me to say —
CALLER: We don’t have a problem. We’re planning on doing that same thing. I just wanted to make sure that you backed what I said because we’ve done this before. (laughing) Last year they were showing global warming videos in the library and we said, ‘No,’ and the only class that didn’t get to see the second part were my two daughters’ classes.
RUSH: Well, good. I would continue to stand up to them. I’ve heard horror stories. I’ve repeated them. Here in Florida, in high school, the parents were told they had to come watch Algore’s movie with the students or the students might suffer grade punishment. The parents had to come watch it, and it’s a lie. It’s a full-fledged lie. You don’t have teachers anymore. You have propagandists and activists.
RUSH: And you have to stand up to them. If you want your kid not to become indoctrinated — if you want your child to actually learn truth and fact — you have to stand up to this kind of stuff. Do you have other options than this school? Is this a public school or private school?
CALLER: It’s a public school but I’m strongly going toward homeschooling this one child ’til she’s out of elementary school at least, after this school year. Because of this. My other two children are strong with knowing this but my younger daughter is still kind of young and absorbs everything her teachers tell her.
RUSH: I tell you, this is a revolution I think that’s going to start on this issue and a lot of things. There’s going to be — we’re going to see it in November but there’s going to be an open rebellion against all of this unchecked liberalism — which is not education; it’s indoctrination. It is activism, and more and more parents when they learn the truth of what’s happening and the lies that their kids are being taught under the impression that it’s truth, people aren’t going to put up with it. So I applaud you. If you have the courage to stand up to them I don’t think you can go wrong, but we’re talking about your child’s education here.
CALLER: No, we educate her on this. The school’s not educating.
RUSH: Exactly right. Exactly right. Well, I’m glad you called. Thanks very much. This is great.
CALLER: Thank you for taking my call.
RUSH: Oh, any time, call back any time. We’re always here, even on holidays.
