American politician, comedian and actor Al Franken was a particularly vicious critic of Trump’s choice for Secretary of Education – Betsy Devos. Well, this man is the typical hypocrite. In February, Franken criticized DeVos for apparently not having sent any of her four children to public schools, implying that this diminished her qualifications for the role of education secretary: “She has never sent a child to a public school” – he said.
Via Patriot Journal: “Do as I say, not as I do.” That might as well be the official motto of liberals. For example, they love to lecture the rest of us to use less energy, while flying around the globe on their private jets, and living in massive homes that have equally large power bills.
Democrats are convinced they know best. We’re not as smart as they are, you see, so these elites take it upon themselves to pass laws the rest of us have to obey, ones that restrict our freedoms “for our own good.” Of course, these same liberals ignore these same rules, because they don’t want to impinge on their lifestyles.
One area where this hypocrisy is most blatant is in the realm of education. Liberals are always talking about America’s “wonderful” public school system and while it might have been world class at one time, unionization, political correctness, Common Core and other pedagogical reforms have made public schools glorified holding pens.
Here’s the most blatant case of double standards on this issue you’ll ever see, and the man who is behind it won’t surprise you one bit:
Despite opposing proposals to increase market forces’ impacts on schooling through the implementation of taxpayer-funded educational vouchers, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) sends his own children to $45,000-per-year private school in New York City, NY.”
Hypocrisy runs deep with Al Franken. It’s Okay for him but very wrong for others.
It is very wrong for Franken to claim that just because you don’t have a child in public school that you are unqualified to be Secretary of Education but instead he is sending his children to a private school!
I mean, after all, Franken spent his whole life telling jokes, now he makes law. And now he questions the qualifications of others….
How can he be Senator and serve the American People when he knows nothing about making laws and making this country great again?
