Gavin Newsom Featured In 1st-Grade Textbook With Abraham Lincoln, MLK. Parents Are Angry And Shocked.

Excerpt:

 

A California school textbook touting Lt. Gov Gavin Newsom as a “champion for people’s rights” has angered parents who are shocked by the “propaganda.”

 

A suburban school district in Sacramento is under fire for featuring the Democratic Party candidate for governor on a page in a first-grade textbook along with President Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., KTXL-TV reported.“Sometimes, Gavin helped marry people. Some marriages were not between a man and a woman. He made sure that people’s rights were respected.” the page in the book stated about the former San Francisco mayor who was once married to Kimberly Guilfoyle, former Fox News host and current girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr.

 

Greg Burt, of the conservative group California Family Council and a parent of a high school student in the Elk Grove Unified School District, said he received a note that “they were testing some new curriculum” in a pilot program for first-graders.

 

“There was different various heroes we’d typically see in a first-grade class, like Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King. And then there was Gavin Newsom, and I go, ‘Well that’s interesting,'” he told KTXL.

 

“That’s way over the top,” Burt said of the page featuring Newsom. “It looks like it was written by his campaign staff. And now they’re teaching it to all first-graders.”

 

A school district spokesperson pushed back at the criticism.

 

“It’s important not to just look at one page, but to look at the entire book,” Xanthi Pinkerton told the news outlet noting that the book “helps the district stay in compliance with the FAIR Education Act, a state law that requires history and social science books include heroes to minority groups.”

 

Parents can still voice concerns, Pinkerton said, as the book had not yet been officially selected.

Burt, however, blasted it as just “propaganda” ahead of the election and criticized the selection for leaving out important facts about the Democratic candidate.

 

“Technically he was breaking the law and he decided that he didn’t like the law and he was going to violate it,” Burt said.

And how much did this cost the CA taxpayers to 'refine' this text book?

It would be hilarious if he lost in November. Not saying he will, but eventually the pendulum has to swing back.

The author of the textbook wisely sucked up to the future Governor of California. What the suckup refers to is that as Mayor of San Freako, Newsom married same-sex couples even though that was illegal at the time. Now Newsom has a virtual lock on the gubernatorial race as the Democrat nominee in a heavily Democrat state.

 

Then, what is Newsom's political platform? What does he propose to do as Governor? Borrow, spend, and hire more bureaucrats. He favors the $4 billion state bond issue which is also on the ballot and which is supposed to subsidize housing. According to his website,

As Governor, Gavin will create a Regional Housing Appeal Board -- providing housing providers and developers recourse against localities who are not following state law. He will also revive the Jobs-Housing Balance Incentive Grants Program, which provides local governments grants to support housing creation. The 2018 housing bond will play an important role in funding this program.

What about California's fiscal problem? The top 1% of taxpayers pay one-half of the state income tax. Since the highest incomes are the most volatile, this makes an unsteady tax base.

We cannot tax or cut our way to prosperity - we can only get there by building an economy that reduces inequality and grows jobs. As Governor, Gavin will protect our Rainy Day Fund, aggressively tackle the state's stubborn wall of debt, and, in the aftermath of President Trump's disastrous tax bill, begin a long-overdue conversation about a twenty-first century system of taxation. We must explore options that reduce revenue volatility to create a stable economy that funds progressive priorities.

The only solutions to the state's "stubborn wall of debt", some $400 billion, are either to pay it off or default. To pay the debt off means raising taxes or cutting spending elsewhere. To "explore options that reduce revenue volatility" means more regressive taxes less dependent on the top 1%. E.g., higher sales tax in a state which already has an 8.44 average sales tax. What are those options? According to Newsom, "everything is on the table." Which is to say, somebody's ox is about to get gored.

Will they change that old song to Abraham, Martin, John and Gavin?

 

 

Unlikely, for one Dion is retired and two Gavin didn't free any people.

To this day though I am still not sure why the reference in the song to Bobby Kennedy.
