#9: Joel John and the Amazing Teacher Gag Vote

So now it is illegal in Arizona to teach Critical Race Theory (another name for “The Truth, even if it Hurts”). I can see a classroom 50 years from now. Let’s listen in to a conversation between a Teacher and a Student in the year 2071:

Student: Mr Jones, in the Constitution, Article 1, Section2, Paragraph 3 refers to “three fifths of all other persons”. Who were these “other persons”?

Teacher: That is a good question, but unfortunately Arizona law forbids me to answer it.

Student: The 13th Amendment to the Constitution outlaws slavery. It was ratified into law in 1865. Does that mean there was slavery in the United States before 1865? Who were the slaves?

Teacher: That is a good question, but unfortunately Arizona law forbids me to answer it.

Student: The 2nd clause of the 14th Amendment changed Article 1, Section 2, Paragraph 3 by taking away the “three fifths of all other persons” clause. What happened to all those people?

Teacher: That is a good question, but unfortunately Arizona law forbids me to answer it.

Student: The first paragraph of the 15th Amendment says that people shall have the right to vote regardless of their race, color or previous condition of servitude. What did they mean by that?

Teacher: That is a good question, but unfortunately Arizona law forbids me to answer it.

Student: Why did the Southern States secede from the Union?

Teacher: That is a good question, but unfortunately Arizona law forbids me to answer it.

Student: Why was the Civil War fought?

Teacher: That is a good question. The North was fighting to preserve the Union, but unfortunately Arizona law forbids me to say why the South fought it.

Student: I read something about a massacre that took place right here in Arizona in 1871 outside a place called “Camp Grant”. Can you tell us about it?

Teacher: That is a good question, but unfortunately Arizona law forbids me to answer it.

And the list of topics the teacher is forbidden by law to teach about goes on and on and on and on….. And you thought the Scopes Monkey Trial was just a historical event!

Thank you, Mr. John, certified teacher, for your vote enabling the thought police in Arizona.
