(RightWing.org) – The Founding Fathers placed a great deal of emphasis on education, in fact it was Thomas Jefferson who said:
“The cornerstone of democracy rests on the foundation of an educated electorate.”
However, it’s hard to believe getting “schooled” by a wet-behind-the-ears socialist and her cohorts is what the third president of the United States of America had in mind.
And that’s exactly what Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) wants to do. She wants to have “themed debates” designed to “educate” the public on certain matters.
Honestly, there should be themed debates. Doing so educates the public far more on issues & actually serves the purpose of distinguishing who knows what they’re talking about +who doesn’t.
Climate debate. Foreign policy debate. Healthcare. Racial justice. Labor&Econ. Can’t hide. https://t.co/jot1HzKesk

Knowing AOC, these debates would most likely be staged with leading questions and an unfair representation of ideas outside of her bubble.
This isn’t the first time someone from the Left has called for some form of themed debate for “educational” purposes. Black Lives Matter activists wanted the DNC to hold debates about issues surrounding race and law enforcement. The Sunrise Movement also wanted the DNC to host a debate about climate change. Both of these requests were denied.
For all of its faults, at least the DNC seems to have the good sense not to indulge the whims of just anyone to let them spread their propaganda.
