Another Republican Who Opposes Higher Education

Another Republican Who Opposes Higher Education September 12, 2019

I recently quoted the moronic Jesse Lee Peterson saying that being educated should be shameful, especially for women. Attacks on higher education have become routine on the right and a Tennessee state legislator was quite blunt about it, saying that we should get rid of all higher education in order to “save America.”

Sen. Kerry Roberts of Springfield called for eliminating higher education while speaking about attending a recent abortion legislative hearing on his conservative radio talk show on Sept. 2.

Roberts specifically called out one activist who testified in favor of protecting abortion rights. He asserted without evidence that the woman’s beliefs were a “product of higher education” and claimed that getting rid of higher education would “save America.”

Could we please stop electing incredibly stupid people to public office? Pretty please? Is that really too much to ask in this country, which has long led the world in scientific research and development? Apparently it is. We’re screwed, folks. Totally screwed.
