It isn’t America any more when a parent can’t even ask a civil question at a town hall without having the jackbooted thugs that claim to “serve” the people forcibly ejecting him from the room. But that is what happened in the People’s Republic of Maryland this month when a parent was asking how the school curriculum would prepare kids for college.
The man, a voter and father of a child in the school district, stood to ask a very civil question. But before he could get it all out the school superintendent sent a thug “police” officer over to grab the man and physically push him out of the room even as other citizens yelled in protest.
Concerned father Robert Small attended the public meeting held by Baltimore County Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance (pictured above). Smalls stood to ask a question but was immediately confronted by Superintendent Dance’s fascist palace guard that made to prevent him from asking a simple, civil question.
“My question is, how does lowering America’s educational standards prepare kids for community college?” Small asked.
He was talking about the new Common Core standards that many schools across America are trying to force down everyone’s throat–a policy that is just one more way to dumb down our kids and place them further under the control of fascists like Superintendent Dance.
When the jackbooted “cop” started ripping at Mr. Small’s shirt to forcibly pull him out of the meeting, Smalls began to call out, “Don’t stand for this. You’re sitting here like cattle. You have questions!”
Small was charged with second-degree assault of a police officer and faces a $2,500 fine and up to 10 years in prison. He was also charged with disturbing a school operation, which carries an additional $2,500 and up to six months in jail. Small attempted to push the officer away when he first approached him, the police report claims. Watch the video and decide for yourself if Small assaulted the officer: Despite some opposition from parents, the Maryland State Department of Education reportedly plans to go forward with its implementation of Common Core standards, joining 45 other states and Washington, D.C., in adopting the standards for the first time this year.
“Look, I am being manhandled and shut down because I asked inconvenient questions,” Small told the Baltimore Sun after the incident. “Why won’t they allow an open forum where there can be a debate? We are told to sit there and be lectured to about how great common core is.”
We are moving ever closer to a full-blown police state, aren’t we?
