So, we’ve all heard what Howard Dean said about Governor Scott Walker.
To review, here is what Dean said pertaining to Walker’s lack of higher education.
“This is a particular problem for Scott Walker which has not been an issue yet, but it will. Scott Walker, were he to become president, would be the first president in many generations who did not have a college degree. So the issue here is not just the issue of dancing around the question of evolution for political reasons, the issue is, how well educated is this guy? Because evolution is a widely accepted scientific construct, and people who don’t believe in evolution either do it for hard right religious reasons or because they don’t know anything,” and, “I worry about people being President of the United States not knowing much about the world and not knowing much about science.”
Therefore, if one doesn’t buy in 100% on evolution over creationism, one is a religious nut who is too stupid to be president.
Since then, many others have chimed in – most coming to Walker’s defense. Most have explained that a college degree isn’t necessary to be president, and that many of history’s greats do not have college degrees.
Mike Rowe added his two cents with a Facebook post writing: “I think the stigmas and stereotypes that keep so many people from pursuing a truly useful skill, begin with the mistaken belief that a four-year degree is somehow superior to all other forms of learning.”
There have been many great leaders who’ve never earned a college degree.
However, there can be a downside – a dark side that may result from a lack of schooling. And this is what we must be aware of. We must watch very closely for signs of radicalism in Walker. It can happen with little warning.
Take for example one young man. By all accounts, he started out his school career as a good boy. His school reports described him as “well-behaved.” Young Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim attended Samarra High School for boys. The young man had a talent for math and the love of geography.
Yet, despite excelling in a few subjects, he was lacking in others, such as English. He ended up failing his final year of high school and was forced to retake his exams.
Was this humiliation – this negative school experience – what pushed this shy and unassuming young man over the edge?
We may never know, but could the same happen to Scott Walker?
So who is, or was this young man? Well, you may know him by his new name – Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the bloodthirsty leader of ISIS.
Yes, Bag-Daddy (as I like to call him) was that well-behaved, unassuming young student who failed at school.
Could it be that he was so distraught over “not knowing much about the world,” as Howard Dean said, that it drove him to terrorism? Could it be that his poor high school performance prevented him from even attending college, and that was too much to bear?
These are questions that must be asked of Scott Walker.
If elected, do you wish to be called president or caliph? If elected, what will happen to your political rivals? Do you ever feel like beheading anyone?
Are these not reasonable questions, given the similarities between the two? Both are educational failures. I’m sure Walker was also considered “unassuming” and “well-behaved,” and both are obviously fanatical religious nut jobs.
It’s all there folks. What more proof do we need?
So say no to an American Caliphate and say no to that creationist fanatic Scott Walker – for, once he is elected, who knows what he’ll do.
