Teiro Cuccinelli, wife of Virgina gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli (better known by this column for his running mate, the ever crazy, ever whiny E.W. Jackson), has signed her name to a campaign fundraising email warning supporters that "we live in a nation in which our inalienable rights to live and liberty face real threats."
The threats listed in the email include suggestions that "clergy might face imprisonment for teaching the Christian morals from the pulpit" and that homeschooling might be outlawed.
"My oldest daughter, Alie, left a few weeks ago to begin her second year of college," it reads. "She told me recently she might want to home school her own children one day. I wonder if Alie will even be allowed to home school her children if she desires to do so. President Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, recently argued in federal court that parents do not have a fundamental right to home school their own children.
"A priest friend of mine recently told me that he is concerned that there might come a day soon when he and his fellow clergy might face imprisonment for teaching the Christian morals from the pulpit."
Cuccinelli also finds room to pander to conspiracy theorists harping over the Common Core curriculum: "Several mothers have expressed their concerns to me about how the nationwide implementation of the Obama Administration's Common Core Curriculum is going to affect Virginia students and standardized testing, including the SAT test.
"These are similar to the many concerns I hear from people I talk to around the Commonwealth.
"What will the future look like for our children?"
Thankfully, the future will look nothing like the dire picture the Cuccinelli campaign is desperately trying to depict, even in the worst case scenario of a complete 2014 Democratic victory.
