Understanding Emotions is Communism!

Joe McCarthy would be proud. In what must serve as one of the finest examples of irony ever imagined, a picture of rank-and-file (presumably Communist) youths wearing digitally added Obama buttons precedes a diatribe against Utah’s Common Core standards, in which first-graders are allegedly being taught to use emotions to manipulate others. It sends quite a mixed message: on the one hand, six-year-olds should not be taught how to use emotions to guide other peoples’ decision-making process; on the other hand, look at this scary picture of ersatz Obama supporters!

I’m starting to think that political paranoia and critical thinking must be mutually exclusive.
