Here's Hillary Clinton going bananas over school vouchers, via FNC's Hannity and Colmes:
Download and watch the video (Windows Media file).
Hillary screeches that providing inner-city and poor students with more choice in education will lead to a a "school of the Church of the White Supremacist " and a "School of the Jihad."
CLINTON: Suppose that you were meeting today to decide who got the vouchers. First parent comes and says 'I want to send my daughter to St. Peter's Roman Catholic School' and you say 'Great, wonderful school, here's your voucher. Next parent who comes says, 'I want to send, you know, my child to the Jewish Day School. Great here's your voucher! Next parent who comes says, "I want to send my child to the private school that I've already dreamed of sending my child to.' Fine. Here's your voucher.
Next parent who comes says, 'I want to send my child to the school of the Church of the White Supremacist.' You say, 'Wait a minute. You can't send...we're not giving a voucher for that.' And the parent says, 'Well, the way that I read Genesis, Cain was marked, therefore I believe in white supremacy. And therefore, you gave it to a Catholic parent, you gave it to a Jewish parent, gave it to a secular private parent. Under the Constitution, you can't discriminate against me.'
Suppose the next parent comes and says 'I want to send my child to the School of...the Jihad.' Wait a minute! We're not going to send a child with taxpayers dollars to the School of Jihad. 'Well, you gave it to the Catholics, gave it to the Jews, gave it to the private secular people. You're gonna tell me I can't? I'm a taxpayer. Under the Constitution.'
Now, tell me how we're going to make those choices.
Actually, Hillary, Islamist influence is creeping into the taxpayer-funded public school system just fine without those evil vouchers.

Lorie Byrd at Polipundit:
I wonder why the Republicans have not capitalized on the issue of school vouchers, which are very popular with non-Jesse Jackson-following blacks in America. This could be just the opening needed to bring the issue to the front burner. Lets see Hillary engage in a debate over vouchers using this kind of rhetoric. Works for me.
Did someone slip some bourbon in her coffee before she went on stage or something? There are already voucher programs in parts of the US. Show me any of them where they dole out funds to Osama Bin Laden Elementary or the Robert "Sheets" Byrd White Power Middle School. It's not happening now, nor will it happen.
Also, may I add that Hillary Clinton sent Chelsea to an exclusive private school. So, what's her real beef with allowing ordinary parents, who aren't as rich as the Clintons, to get the same kind of education for their children?
Iowa Voice: Hillary Clinton Must Be Out Of Her Mind
'Course we all know that fancy-dancy private schools like Sidwell Friends are for the children of wealthy & influential parents only...no riff-raff allowed. /s
I guess when you are married to the first black President and you have worked for the black Panthers you start picking up hatred for Whitey as you go along.
From what I have seen it is blacks in inner cities who are wanting vouchers for their kids to get them out of the sorry public schools in cities such as Washington DC.
Is it just me or do you find it odd she associated a white supremacist with one who reads the Bible/a Christian?
Vouchers are popular in Ohio, she won't get many votes here.
What in the name is driving this evil predatorial blaspheming witch? Voting for her to the NY Senate? Don't people have clue?
Yep, Hillary's throwing flawed premises to keep the black community on the plantation. And you know what I'm talkin' 'bout.
Hillary panders heavily to the fears and prejudices in the black community. She is despicable.
And just how much money is the teachers loby giving to Mrs. Clinton?
She is such a whore.
So now we have it from the horses mouth -- The purpose of government school is not to teach reading, writing, and arithmetic. It's to bend young minds into the government mold, and the parents don't get to choose.
Her voice is shot from screaming too much...like she'd gargled with razor blades...
Waco had whites blacks, Australians, Brits and Americans, but the Clinton Admin saw "white supremacists" behind every tree.
White supremacists probably number in the low thousands in this country. impoverished kids who can't attend public schools without fear probably numbers in the millions.
But her point is a good one. But of course, she is approaching it from the wrong direction.
If the government hands money to a parent, they are going to demand to exercise control. This is inevitable. The government never gives out money without demanding control.
Many of us have children in private schools because we want to avoid the idiocies of the public school system. The control that comes along with vouchers would extend those idiocies to every private school as well. That is why I do not support vouchers.
When you watch the video, her voice and demeanor overcomes this perception somewhat. But the stills are downright creepy!
Perhaps we stop funding education via government and have parents pay for educating their children? Taxes go down, parents pay for the education they want with the money they save as taxes are reduced, people who don't have kids don't pay for others children and the Feds in particular, get out of a business which they were never chartered to do in the first place.
She knows you can't try to pull vouchers away where it's already been implemented without paying a very heavy political price.
The middle class will pay pay pay for vouchers, which will all go to the inner city.
