Rand Paul: Education Dept. Teaches ‘Susie Has Two Mommies’ (Video)

October 15, 2010

(ChattahBox Political News)—The current crop of radical tea party candidates are all in lockstep when it comes to abolishing the Department of Education. They all claim that education should be regulated at the state level with no national standards at all. But Rand Paul, the libertarian senatorial candidate from Kentucky has his own unique take on the issue. He claims, based on no facts whatsoever, that the Department of Education mandates that kindergardeners be taught about same sex marriage. In his warped view, eliminating the Department of Education would ensure that school children would not be exposed to gay people.

Thing Progress reports that Paul made his homophobic remarks during a debate with his Democratic opponent Jack Conway.

PAUL: I would rather the local schools decide things. I don’t like the idea of somebody in Washington deciding that Susie has two mommies is an appropriate family situation and should be taught to my kindergardener at school. That’s what happens when we let things get to a federal level. I think I would rather have local school boards, teachers, parents, people in Paduka deciding about your schools and not have it in Washington.

As usual, Paul just says the strangest things.
