The day began when we were rudely awakened by the blaring sirens and flashing lights of our Retard-o-tron™. The blinking letters on the wall said WorldNetDaily — which is described in the Cast of Characters section of our Intro page.
The Retard-o-tron™ directed us to this article: Students in crosshairs of government education. It’s written by Bradlee Dean. WND says he’s “an ordained preacher, heavy metal drummer, talk-show host of the Sons of Liberty Radio, and speaks on college and high school campuses with his ministry, You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International.”
Wikipedia has an article on Dean’s ministry: You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International, which informs us that “[Minnesota Congresswoman Michele] Bachmann has praised the ministry, appearing as a keynote speaker at their fundraisers.” Here’s the ministry’s website, which takes a while to load due to its garish graphics.
We’ve written about Dean only once before — WorldNetDaily’s Craziest Creationism Rant? This time the preacher-drummer is even more out of control. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Obama has illegally implemented an extensive overhaul of public education from kindergarten through high school, bypassing Congress, the voice of the American people, and inducing states to agree to major changes that none of his predecessors attempted.
This is through something called the Common Core Standards, which has been implemented in 46 states and D.C., drowning students with mostly “informational text” and historical documents.
We’ve never paid any attention to that, and we have no opinion about it. Their project could be terrific, or it could be a nightmare plotted by a bunch of subversive creeps. Here’s a website with some information: Common Core Standards. For what it’s worth, they say:
Parents, teachers, school administrators and experts from across the country together with state leaders, through their membership in the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) are leading the effort to develop a common core of state standards.
We’re not here to discuss them or their work, so let’s get back to the preacher-drummer and see what he says:
The curriculum change in public schools has been a downward spiral for many years. America has been so dumbed down that 700,000 students per year graduate without the ability to read their own diplomas.
What’s going to fix that — creationism? Let’s read on, skipping everything except what Dean says about science texts:
In textbooks all across America, science (the study of creation) is well-known for being laced with the dangerous theory of evolution, which wars against Christianity, the Bible, God and His Law, which is the foundation of our republic.
Now that is one crazy sentence! The preacher-drummer continues:
Andrew Jackson said, “The Bible is the rock upon which our republic rests.” That is why evolution was illegal to teach in schools at the time of the 1925 Scopes Trial.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! It’s amazing what one can learn by reading WorldNetDaily.
Then Dean goes into a rant against humanism, which is presumably behind the perverted science texts he just described, and after that there a video in his article, titled: “The Theory/Religion of Evolution Against the Facts!”
We’ve seen a lot of stupid videos, but this one is truly moronic. It includes such oldie-goldies as Nebraska man and Piltdown Man, and it ends with some scripture. The good news is that it’s less than two minutes long, and it’s definitely worth watching for entertainment. Best of all, you don’t have to click over to WND to see it. We found it on YouTube, so here it is:
That’s it, dear reader. Now you know all there is to know, thanks to the Retard-o-tron™.
