There is not much of a surprise here, but perhaps listening to the news from another source will help.
I have told you for years of the "long game" illiberals, socialists, and communists have been playing, especially in our schools. Over decades it has filtered down into middle school, maybe even some elementary. Teachers with an overt political agenda (fueled in part by the teachers union) have been performing their version of water torture of your children as they age in the school system.
The slow, consistent "drop, drop, drop" of illiberalism.
When combined with sorry curriculum and disconnected (way too trusting parents) it creates, as an example, some of the Parkland students who have a completely irrational, distorted view of history and, by extension, the 2nd Amendment. It also creates college campuses where students cry for "safe spaces" and question whether or not the 1st Amendment should exist at all.
