Here’s a video taken at a recent event organized by the 9-12 Project. Watch as at about two and a half minutes in, a man starts rousing the small crowd. The Huffington Post describes the scene:
“In the early 50s our country was infiltrated by the communist party,” he says, calling the Obama administration the culmination of that infiltration. “They’re doing everything they can to brainwash our public…This thing they’re putting on our TVs,” he says, presumably referring to digital cable converters, “it’s a brainwash unit!”
As his speech winds down, he exhorts his listeners to get their kids “the hell out of college. They’re brainwashing ’em!”
The anti-school message resonates with one woman.
“Burn the books!” she yells from off-camera. The surprised camera man asks if she’s serious, and which books she’d burn. “The ones in college, the brainwashing books, like the evolution crap.”
Wake up, Dormouse!’ And they pinched it on both sides at once.
The Dormouse slowly opened his eyes. `I wasn’t asleep,’ he said in a hoarse, feeble voice: `I heard every word you fellows were saying.’
