Yup, eliminate institutions that teach people how to think and you can well eliminate the liberals that grow from that. Good idea now let's see you try to do it.

Conservative Christians fear education: Tennessee State Senator Kerry Roberts wants to “save America” by putting an end to higher education because it is a “liberal breeding ground.”

The Hill reports:

A Tennessee state GOP lawmaker has called for getting rid of the entire higher education system, asserting that such a move would “save America.”

State Sen. Kerry Roberts made the remarks while speaking on his conservative talk radio show. He addressed his problems with the higher education system while discussing a recent legislative hearing focused on abortion legislation.

Earlier this month, while speaking on his radio show, State Senator Roberts suggested putting an end to higher education in Tennessee, declaring:

… If there’s one thing that we can do to save America today, it is to get rid of our institutions of higher education right now, and cut the liberal breeding ground off! Good grief! The stupid stuff that our kids are being taught is absolutely ridiculous, and this is a woman who’s a product of higher education. She’s learned all of this stuff that flies in the face of what we stand for as a country!

And here we are as legislators paying for this garbage to be taught to our children, and we’re not doing anything about it. And all these red states across America, we let it exist, and it’s absolutely unbelievable. And this is the price that we pay: the murder of over half a million innocent lives every year, with people sitting there, justifying it to their last breath.

It’s no secret that conservative Christians want to keep people stupid. Once someone learns to think critically about the world, they often abandon religious superstition. It is something that conservative Christian parents often complain about, and worry about. The story is often repeated: “Good Christian” parents send their child to college, only for that child to learn to think critically, and abandon the ignorance and religious superstition of their parents.

As for Senator Roberts, according to his Senate biography, he received a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Lipscomb University, a Christian college near Nashville, in 1983. Christian college. Yet despite his dubious college degree, Roberts frequently bashes higher education. For example:

However, in a pathetic attempt at damage control, Senator Roberts now wants everyone to know that he was just “joking” about putting an end to higher education.

There you have it, nothing to see here, just some ignorant conservative Christian bashing higher education in hopes of “owning the libs.”

Bottom line: Tennessee State Senator Kerry Roberts wants to “save America” by putting an end to higher education because it is a “liberal breeding ground.”

Yes, that sounds stupid. But your first paragraph indicates that you can be just as stupid,

"Yup, eliminate institutions that teach people how to think and you can well eliminate the liberals that grow from that."

That is what are institutions have become, but they eliminate Conservative thought and speech and teaching, not liberals. They even disallow the ability to think. It is all liberal brainwashing. It is the Conservatives that are already being marginalized and kept from growing in all of these Liberal, Communist, Socialist factories, creating minds of a robot without even artificial intelligence. Just hard wired Liberal Zombies, unable to come up with an original thought or concept, just following their pre programmed puppet masters in the Democrat Party.

I see a lot of people believing in college bashing.---They think they work and wimps become students of nonsensical subjects and get non applicable to any sort of jobs degrees so they just go on welfare. This type of negative propaganda leads to people being attracted to shiny objects and mindless following. Education gives us the ability to think outside of a box and be capable of intelligent thoughts and actions.

Education gives those who graduate, with inflated grades, no wisdom but the wisdomless extreme leftist indoctrination theology that is ruining our country. Go sit in on some of these classes and you hear our Constitution being bashed, our founders being called racist, white priviledged individuals and a mocking of everything moral and good. Don't send your kids to these schools (churches) of lower learning ( leftist indoctrination camps).

You, internlarry, are a living, breathing example of lower learning. Thus, a summary of your knowledge of both education and/or everything moral and good could easily be summarized on the tip of a sewing needle.

I went to college and it was not that way. I do think you would not complain if colleges became hard right purveyors of hatred toward any thing remotely considered as Liberal.

No it doesn't really. Not college. Students aren't taught to think outside the box - that is wholly dependent on the subject and the teacher.

A college education doesn't make one wise. Easy examples of that are AOC and Trump.

I went to college because I wanted to learn as did most of the students I went with. Analytical thinking and problem solving was a big part of what we learned. If you can't think for yourself you become a follower incapable of acting on your own. That is perfect for charesmatic politicians with their own agenda.

When I was growing up we were taught that in grade school and high school. That's the way it should be. Shouldn't have to wait for college for that.
