Earlier this week, Ryan Walters – the long-faced broseph who wants to oversee public education for Oklahoma students of all races, religions, nationalities, and origins – recorded another right-wing video rant.
This time around, he went with a culture war classic and openly called for the Christian God to be put back in public schools. He said this apparently unaware that God – an all-mighty and powerful deity who has a divine plan for every atom in the universe – knew that Walters was going to run for Oklahoma State School Superintendant, and probably wanted to get out while he still had a chance.
You can check out the video below. Not only does Walters call for God to be put back in schools against his will, but he also claims Christians "are under attack" and that Clarence Thomas is the greatest Supreme Court Justice in history.
First of all, kudos to Walters for recording this reel of right-wing propaganda in front of his little bookshelf and not while driving around with a suspended license. You'd think that would make him feel less nervous, but either way, it's nice to see him actually show some personal responsibility for once!
Second, the only people who think Clarence Thomas is the greatest Supreme Court Justice in history are Clarence Thomas, Clarence Thomas's wife, and some fellow by the name of Long Dong Silver.
I assume that's why Walters – an AP history teacher – was barely able to keep a straight face while making the bold claim. He knows it's an over-the-top false statement, but he also knows the purpose of these videos isn't to have a thoughtful, honest, fact-based discussion, but to pander to the morons who vote for morons like him, and irritate the sane and practical people who don't.
As a result, I'm going to ignore Walter's culture war bait and just acknowledge the obvious – the only reason Walters is recording these outlandish videos is for attention... and to increase his chances of hooking up with Carly Atchison.
