With the sounds of “loony loony loony” echoing in my head, I decided to head over to Vox Day’s blog. If you don’t know Vox, he’s a
widely-celebrated World Net Daily columnist, an avid gun collector, and the Hans Zeiger of his generation.
After reading his latest entry about forced cliterectomies and the NEA, I can only conclude that he’s angling for the job of Education Secretary in a future Bush administration.
I happened to scan a few pages of a chick book the other day. It’s called Princess, and it purports to be the true story of a Saudi Arabian princess. I have to say, I was largely left cold by the plight of the poor oppressed rich girls, as with a few exceptions, the most horrific events of the book were the predictable and easily avoidable consequences of the young women’s actions.
The ever-sensitive Vox goes on to describe clitorectomies the girls are forced to endure and then draws a somewhat unusual parallel.
A disgusting practice, to be sure, and defended with an argument similar to that made by public school-educated parents who are planning to subject their children to the same education they experienced. The fact that these parents are as intellectually dead as the Saudi women are sensually crippled means that they are making their decisions on the false grounds of incomplete experience. In both cases, I think those who condemn their children to like fates have much for which to answer, as one’s own abuse, physical or intellectual, should inspire one to act to prevent the same from happening to the next generation instead of allowing the vicious cycle to be repeated.
Yeah…Education. Don’t let it happen to your kids.
When one understands that the teachers of the NEA are every bit as ignorant and prejudiced as the mutawas of Saudi Arabia, and that they serve much the same societal purpose, one soon discovers in oneself as little inclination to hand one’s children over to the former as to the latter.
So instead of trusting teachers, perhaps you should consider handing your children over to this man:
