FL Legislator Wants D’Souza Film Shown in Schools

A Republican (of course) legislator in Florida loved Dinesh D’Souza’s latest bit of inane propaganda against Obama so much that he wants it to be shown to every student in that state’s public school. In fact, he wants to pass a law making it mandatory.

Florida state Senator Alan Hays (R) announced Friday that he is working on a bill to make it mandatory that all public school students in the state be shown Dinesh D’Souza’s latest anti-Obama film, America: Imagine a World Without Her.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hays will introduce the bill in November, requiring all 1,700 Florida middle and high schools to hold viewings of the film Salon.com called “laughable” and “humiliating propaganda.”…

Think Progress quoted Hays as saying, “I saw the movie and walked out of the theater and said, ‘Wow, our students need to see this.’ And it’s my plan to show it to my colleagues in the legislature, too, before they’re asked to vote on the bill.”

Seriously, how do these people get elected?

    Not preventing gays from getting married: big government, tyranny.
    Mandatory viewing of propaganda films: small government, freedom.

    Look at the bright side: they have schools in Florida now.

    * and that Ed, is how legislators get elected.
    [In reality:panem et circenses, gerrymandering and vast voter fraud (the lattermost (R) only, mostly)].

    By embodying the values, virtues, ideals, and aspirations of their constituents.

    D. C. Sessions “By embodying the values, virtues, ideals, and aspirations of their constituents.”
    More succinctly, “By hating the right people”.

  6. D. C. Sessions says

    Modus, you’re oversimplifying this (and not giving them credit for their genuine accomplishments.)

    FTFY:

    “By hating the right people and ripping off the rest.”

  7. says

    D. C. Sessions, their voters don’t vote to get themselves ripped off. That’s more a side effect of being willing to line up at the abattoir as long as the hated Other is ahead of them. As bonuses, their making sure Government Can’t Work buttresses their thesis, and they’ll blame the other party.

    No, they just write checks to the ones they admire so much for teaching them the value of gold coins, and newsletters, and … As Ed so routinely documents.

    ‘Florida Man’ used to just be a funny guy that got into all kinds of hijinks and trouble, kind of like Curious George. Then Florida went and elected him to political office. This is why we can’t have nice things FLORIDA!

    At least make it a double feature with The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

    Maybe we could all legislate our fav flicks be shown at local schools. How the students would love us!

    Synfandel – ‘oh great, just what we need. A cock, in a frock on a rock’.
