Obama used the word ‘fake’, which implies a dishonest scale was used against another, in a speech to persuade voters to vote for a Democrat Governor?
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb. an idiom, for interested readers to decide the issue of “parents should (not) be telling schools what they should teach.”
The LORD detests dishonest scales, but accurate weights find favor with him. (Proverb 11:1)
Excerpt – Biblehub Benson Commentary Proverb 11:1
Highly abominable to him, both because this wickedness is practiced under a color of justice, and because it is destructive of human society, and especially of the poor, whose patron the Lord declares himself to be: see on Leviticus 19:35. “This rule may hold, not in commerce only, but also in our judgments, and in our whole conduct toward our neighbor. In everything respecting him, employ the balance of equity, void of all selfish views, passions, and prejudices.
Scales of Justice are Blind
Justice is Blind and therefore, in result of that blindness, justice is best delivered in an objective and impartial way. So, now you know why the Lady of Justice is wearing folds! In another fact, the Lady of Justice statue is also referred to as Blind Justice and the Scales of Justice. (Google)
Excerpt – Obama Speech
“We don’t have time to be wasting on these phony, trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage that right wing media’s pedals to juice their ratings.”
Excerpt – McCallie’s War on Parents
In response, McAuliffe said, “I’m not going to let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decisions,” adding, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”
Excerpt – Wikipedia Fake News
However, recent reviews of fake news still regard it as a useful broad construct, equivalent in meaning to fabricated news, as separate from related types of problematic news content or information disorder, such as hyper partisan news, this latter being a particular source of political polarization.
What’s My Point?
Obama and a host of top Democrat Politicians are using their political “weight” to obtain votes for a Democrat Governor Candidate who believes that: “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”
In My Opinion
Everyone should read the following Excerpts and deicide if they should trust the scales of words, they are hearing by people to determine if they should trust the weight of the information being set before them.
Then discern the Idiom to consider if who they should “blindly “vote for in the upcoming election or consider if the scales of the words used to describe their choice for Governor.
Do you believe that government knows better than parents what they should be taught in school?
Should voters also discern if now is the time to only support legislators who support school vouchers to return the choices of who should decide what their children should be taught? Preferably the same Christion religious values their parents may have been taught by their parents who fortunately could afford to send their children to private schools same as most politicians now do and 40 percent of public-school teachers.
Regards and goodwill blogging.
