Bobby Jindal, a Republican, is governor of Louisiana.
While President Obama publicly celebrated the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.s I have a dream speech last week, his administration took action behind the scenes in Louisiana that was a complete rejection of Kings dream.
The Justice Department has challenged my state in court for having the temerity to start a scholarship program that frees low-income minority children from failing schools. In other words, Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder would rip children out of their schools and handcuff them to the failing schools they previously attended. And, in the ultimate irony, they are using desegregation orders set up to prevent discrimination against minority children to try to do it.
Never mind that 90 percent of the children receiving scholarships in Louisiana are minorities or that 100 percent of their parents choose to apply for these scholarships.
By his own words, the president is fighting for the right of these children to live the American dream, but his actions would destroy their dreams.

Hey RNC, are you paying attention?
NINE OF 10 Louisiana children who receive vouchers to attend private schools are black. All are poor and, if not for the state assistance, would be consigned to low-performing or failing schools with little chance of learning the skills they will need to succeed as adults. So its bewildering, if not downright perverse, for the Obama administration to use the banner of civil rights to bring a misguided suit that would block these disadvantaged students from getting the better educational opportunities they are due.
Education enables people to get out of the underclass, and the Democrats cannot survive if they do.
Ignorant people are much easier to manipulate and control.
Besides, we’re talking about minorities disproportionately — and everyone knows Democrats are virulent racists. Always have been, probably always will be.
Ignore what Obastard says, he’s lying. Watch what he does.
