Former action star Chuck Norris, a conservative and longtime opponent of marriage equality, lashes out at "pro-gay school propaganda" in a commentary he's written for website World Net Daily.
In the first of a two-part commentary titled "U.S. Public Schools: Progressive Indoctrination Camps," the former actor quotes Thomas Jefferson's 1820 vision for the University of Virginia, but wonders what should happen 200 years later when public schools and universities avoid the, as he puts it, "testing of truths."
Norris also quotes Jim Nelson Black, author of Freefall of the American University, by documenting "the clear biases pervading our public academic settings. Among that lopsidedness is the intentional training of students to disdain America, freely experiment sexually, forcefully defend issues like abortion and homosexuality, as well as become cultural advocates for political correctness, relativism, globalization, green agendas and tolerance for all."
Norris writes that "it is also no surprise that an average of 6,000 students every year is leaving the approximately 94,000 public schools in America. If the power-to-be over our public schools, like government and unions, continue to oppose conservative curricula and impose overarching liberal educational revisions and laws, public schools will continue to experience an exodus."
