Once again, the Constitution is under attack by the people who claim to revere it and the Founding Fathers the most. Right wing nut job, and potential 2016 Republican Presidential hopeful Bobby Jindal told NBC host Hoda Kotb that he’s got “no problem” teaching Creationism in public schools. This is kind of ironic, since Jindal recently said,
“We’ve got to stop being the stupid party. It’s time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults. We had a number of Republicans damage the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments. I’m here to say we’ve had enough of that.”
Yeah. Good luck with that.
Ignorant science-denying Louisiana TEApublicans have been attempting to inject religion into public education for a while now. Just how stupid are they? Quite. In January, AATTP reported on one Louisiana TEApublican who asked how E. Coli turns into human beings.
Louisiana’s so-called “Science Education Act” allows teachers to teach creationism in public schools if the school board approves. Jindal explained,
“Bottom line, at the end of the day, we want our kids to be exposed to the best facts. Let’s teach them about the big bang theory, let’s teach them about evolution, let’s teach them — I’ve got no problem if a school board, a local school board, says we want to teach our kids about creationism, that people, some people, have these beliefs as well, let’s teach them about ‘intelligent design.’”
