Wis. 8th Grade Crossword Puzzle Definitions: Conservatism = ‘Restricting Personal Freedoms,’


A mother at a Wisconsin public school said her daughter’s eighth grade class was assigned a worksheet with some eyebrow-raising definitions for “conservatism” and “liberalism.”

Conservatism, it stated in part, believes in “preserving traditional moral values by restricting personal freedoms” while liberalism is for “equality and personal freedom for everyone.”

“This is indoctrination,” Tamra Varebrook, a Republican activist in Racine, Wis., told TheBlaze on Thursday after her 13-year-old daughter showed her the crossword-style vocabulary sheet from Union Grove Elementary School earlier this week. Varebrook first talked about the assignment with the news arm of the conservative Education Action Group.

Varebrook said she complained to Brenda Stevenson, district administrator at Union Grove, who apologized profusely and said it never should have been taught. Varebrook was told the teacher was required to correct the definition to the class Wednesday while the assistant principal observed.

Hard to believe 52% of the voters were all taught in Racine, Wisconsin!

The socialist liberal propaganda machine has been beating that drum for as long as I can remember. I believed it too before I learned to think critically, evaluate results, and understand propaganda.

Many still think Conservative = Evangelical Christian Puritan who wants to make everyone pray, abolish rock and roll, outlaw sex, and give government control over every aspect of your life.

Conservatives really want to be left alone through smaller less intrusive government.
