Common Core Exec: ‘Damn the Second Amendment’
Says conservatives are “idiots.”
Project Veritas has released its third undercover video of another Common Core executive revealing the political ideology behind the national educational standards. And this time the anti-American agenda is made clear.
The featured Common Core salesperson in this video is Kim Koerber of National Geographic Education (funded by the Gates Foundation, by the way) and a former Pearson Education publishing executive. Her expressions of hatred for America’s founding documents coupled with her undying love for Common Core brings the problem to an entirely new level. Plus, she brings a new meaning to the word disgust when talking about those pesky Texas conservatives:
Common Core is really important because it needs to have some cohesion between the states, and Texas keeps screwing it up over and over again.
Texas got upset about it and they wanted to have their founders, they wanted to pound the founders in it. And it’s like come on!
The dead white guys did not create this country. It was a whole bunch of different kinds of people. And yes there were women, and yes there were people of color, and yes… you need to talk about them, too. But they want to talk about those dead white guys.
People who say that they want to teach the Constitution, only want to teach the part of the Constitution that they like.
When told that Texans are upset that the Constitution isn’t being covered, Koerber pushed back hard saying, ” It is being covered, but not the way they — cause they’re idiots and they don’t know what’s in it.”
“You should know a little bit about it, you shouldn’t have to memorize the thing,” she added.
When a Project Veritas undercover journalist spoke about the Second Amendment, Koerber interjected:
That damn Second Amendment. I don’t think personal handguns need to be on anyone except the government, the police. What is the purpose of having a gun?
But Koerber wasn’t done insulting conservatives, or Christians — what she kept referring to as “those” people in Texas who keep resisting Common Core:
They don’t agree with Islam, so they don’t want their kids to know about it. They don’t agree with birth control, so they don’t want their kids to talk about it. They don’t agree with math because they don’t understand it. It’s not the same math that they did in high school, so they don’t want their kids to know about it.
Here is a little back and forth with a PV journalist and Kroeber, continuing this line of thought (via Breitbart):
PV: I am really glad I’m here in California, whatever religious affiliation you want to take is fine, but in Texas they want to push the Christianity.
KOERBER: Because they think it’s the only one.
PV: They do, and I see that.
KOERBER: That’s why it’s so offensive to have these prayers in the school board.
PV: Christianity is totally out of the common core?
KOERBER: Yes it is. Totally. It’s not a core concept at all.
PV: But then there is a mention of other religions like Islam.
KOERBER: Yeah well you have to because …
PV: So how did Islam get worked in?
KOERBER: Islam…they said you have to talk about Islam, you have to talk about Judaism and you have to talk about Christianity and they wanted to make it big about Christianity; no it’s like, everybody needs to know about everything else.
This third video in the series follows a first and second that both featured execs telling Project Veritas that Common Core has never been about children and that it is all about money. The undercover operation has been successful as one of the women featured in the first video was quickly fired for gleefully saying, “No, I hate kids. I’m in it to sell books, don’t even kid yourself for a heartbeat.”
