Rep. Jared Polis doesn't want you to know he thinks Diane Ravitch is evil

That tweet is from Colorado state Sen. Evie Hudak, a Democrat.

She is calling out liberal Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., who called education analyst Diane Ravitch the “e-word” in a tweet he later deleted. Snapshot of the deleted tweet via Politwoops:

“[Don’t] know if I can bring myself to read another book from that evil woman who is doing such harm to public education,” he tweeted Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers.

From Polis’ tweet, you might think Ravitch is a hard-right conservative. Not exactly. Her new book is titled, “Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public Schools.”

She does, however, deviate from the Obama Administration on some issues, such as the Common Core state standards. And that’s why, in Polis’ view, she is not only mistaken but profoundly immoral.

Independent thinking must not be tolerated!

Weingarten, president of the AFT, pushed back:

Others weighed in, demonstrating that there are some things most people can agree on:

  • bkeyser

    All you need to see is “Koch brothers” and you know it’s a rabid progressive without facts on the other end.

    • Elaine

      They just can’t help themselves. No outrage from them about Soros billions.

      • Tyrconnell

        Well, you must understand, the Koch brothers made their billions by providing goods and services that the people want and need, Soros made his billions by bringing pain and suffering to people, therefore the evil ones are the Kochs…nah I don’t follow that line of “reasoning” either.

      It must rankle all those NYC Upper West Side limo-Libs that David Koch is the corporate sponsor of the NY State Theater at Lincoln Center, with his name splashed all over it. From a “radical” website, courtesy Google Images:

    What is with these crazy libturds this week and the outrageous things they’re saying. Have they all been drinking complimentary water they received from the Mooch?

    • Matthew Koch

      It must be some bad moonshine.

  • ObamaFail

    Dems are good at this. Like calling Republicans who are trying to prevent economic devastation terrorists.

  • Mister A

    Evie Hudak is a complete joke… not a big reader, really. Surprising that she weighed in, but then again, she likes to say and do things with no prior knowledge of the circumstances in which she’s engaging.

  • Morneau_for_4

    Let them fight. I don’t care about any of them.

  • Ronald Green

    So says another idiot Liberal Democrat.

  • GaryTheBrave

    Prior to becoming a Congress critter Polis was a member of the Boulder School Board and supported outcome based education. Now he supports Common Core.

    Hudak was the state senator who told a witness at a campus concealed-carry hearing that had the witness had a gun when she was sexually assaulted he would have taken it from her.

    This is the quality of legislators “representing” the good people of Colorado. *smh*

    Those attempting to displace our moral standards with savage instincts may yet destroy the framework upon which liberty & prosperity depend.
