That big scary word was bandied about by the right wing when President Obama was going to give his first address to the nation's schools (LIKE SO MANY PRESIDENTS BEFORE HIM) about the importance of working hard, staying in school, doing your best - you know, liberal, socialist, Marxist, Communist ideas.
Glenn Beck made sure to add it to the Word O' The Day verbal toilet paper he unrolled for his mASSES each day. Filling his audience with the fear of indoctrination camps being set up across the nation.
Rick Santorum loved the word, too. He used it to describe colleges. You know, those places where a young person's mind is polluted with liberal things like FACTS and INFORMATION. (Let's not even get started on old Frothy attending 3 colleges himself. They failed miserably at filling him with anything but beer and pomposity.)
And the fearmongers of the nation love to point their chewed nailed, stubby fingers across the globe at the MIddle East and drone on about how they - you know, brown people who aren't Christian - indoctrinate their children to hate America, to believe in Islam, to want to kill everything with a pulse.
It's always THEY.
The elusive, scary, morally bankrupt and bereft of values THEY.
And none of them realize THEY live a lot closer. In fact, THEY live right in THEIR mirrors.
Today's example of the Christian Taliban:
You explain to me how THIS is not indoctrination? This tiny child singing with conviction about homos not getting into heaven.
This child did not come into this world knowing the word "homo," let alone some bullshit, manmade requirements to obtain a Fastpass for the Golden Gate and St. Peter's Wild Ride.
Your children came to you as blank slates. Empty vessels.
Take a good look. What have you written on them? What hatred have you filled them, INDOCTRINATED them with? It is abuse just as much as if you shot them up with heroin or stuffed a case of Marlboros in their mouth and lit it with a flamethrower.
If they are hating another group of people, then you have failed. Utterly, completely, and you are as far from the ideas of Jesus as is humanly possible.
Kick you in your sorry, hating, ignorant ass.
