Tea Party Of Louisiana Falls For Hoax Article: 'Common Core Turns Students Gay'
The Tea Party of Louisiana has declared Sen. David Vitter a “turncoat of liberty” because of his support for Common Core, warning yesterday that the education standards will turn kids gay. Vitter came out in favor of Common Core while Gov. Bobby Jindal, who once supported Common Core, is now trying — so far unsuccessfully— to repeal the standards. Angry with Vitter’s remarks, the Tea Party group responed by linking to an article titled “Common Core Turns First Wave Of Students Gay,” apparently unaware that it was from the parody website Broken World News.
“Initial estimates suggest that as many as 60% of students who participated in Common Core have gone gay, many overnight. But experts fear that some are just transitioning a little slower,” the Broken World News article reads. “[T]he difficulty of the Common Core tests is the primary culprit in promoting the gay agenda, calling it ‘common knowledge that the smartest kids in school are usually the gay kids.’”
Of course, the next item listed by the Tea Party group should also be taken as a joke, as it comes from consistently discredited pseudo-historian David Barton.
