A middle school band director called Patrick Kearney wrote a blog post in defense of perverted materials in Iowa schools.

Kearney wrote a blog post on Nov. 20 titled “How Would You Destroy a Profession?” Kearney then goes on a rant about Republican accomplishments in Iowa.

“You might start by taking away their right to negotiate the conditions of their employment (https://www.iowapolicyproject.org/2017Research/170203-collbarg.html). That would surely send a message to the profession you were trying to destroy right?” he wrote.

Kearney then wrote that you might “chronically underfund” their work. The problem with this argument, though, is education hasn’t been cut in Iowa since Democrats were in control.

He then expressed disappointment with the law that prohibited Iowa schools from implementing mask mandates. Mind you, this law didn’t stop anyone from wearing a mask who wanted to wear a mask, it simply prohibited schools from requiring kids wear them if kids and/or their parents didn’t want them worn.

Interestingly, Kearney claims the state legislature accused teachers of doing things they aren’t doing and creating legislation that restricts what can and can’t be said. This was in reference to a bill that prohibited divisive concepts from being taught.

Critical Race Theory, they say, isn’t being taught in Iowa schools. Meanwhile, they lament things like the 1776 Pledge that prohibit Critical Race Theory from being taught in Iowa schools.

Kearney writes that Republicans have spent years trying to “destroy” the teaching profession. And now they’re showing up at schools and threatening to lock them up for doing their jobs.

He writes this in reference to Sen. Jake Chapman speaking at a Johnston School District meeting reviewing perverted, grotesque materials.

It appears teachers must be allowed to have their students read books that discuss masturbation in order to do their job. And mix in some pedophilia. A little incest. And some pornographic images for good measure.

All in a day’s work, I guess.

Kearney is just one more out-of-touch educator who is defending the use of books that detail sexual relations, pedophilia, incest, etc.

He is a middle school band director, according to his blog bio. And it appears there are more educators who agree with the importance of teachers being able to provide students with materials promoting pedophilia, incest and pornographic images.

“How Would You Destroy a Profession?”

I cannot say for certain, but it certainly seems like if those on the “inside” of the profession are defending materials that promote pedophilia, incest, masturbation, pornographic images, etc. to minors — well, that would certainly seem like one sure-fire way to do it.
