When Terry McAuliffe, a Virginia Democratic gubernatorial hopeful, argued that parents shouldn’t have any say in the education of their children in K-12 schools, his campaign was doomed. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is running for Texas governor.
Before, his chances of winning were slim. McAuliffe is now more likely to have his support than McAuliffe’s belief that children should be governed by the state and not their parents.
O’Rourke is an Irishman who claims to be Hispanic in order to win votes. On Wednesday, O’Rourke attacked those who don’t agree with the critical race theory being taught in K-12 schools. He said that teachers should be allowed to teach whatever they like to teach.
“We don’t have to tell teachers what history they are allowed to teach in their classrooms. O’Rourke stated that we don’t have to alarm parents about CRT (critical race theories) which she was unfamiliar with.
Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke: Parents “don’t need to tell [teachers] what version of history they are allowed to teach.”

Fox News Digital received a comment from the Irishman, who stated that Beto would fully fund Texas’ schools and support Texas students, parents, and teachers. This is after years of Greg Abbott underfunding Texas classrooms and calling to defund public education.
“Beto doesn’t say that parents shouldn’t tell schools how to teach,” the campaign stated.
Skippy, that’s a nice effort.
Beto was not referring to parents. Who was the one protesting against progressive ideas about race being taught in schools? These teachings are being resisted by what groups? Are Moms For Liberty or Moms For America names like parents?
McAuliffe wasn’t as open about the fact that the Irishman was referring to parents and other concerned parents about their children’s learning at school. This is the way progressive statists think. They believe that government-run schools should have complete control over the ideas they use in influencing children’s minds. They are not surprised that parents may want to be involved in the education of their children.
