(FRANKFORT, Ky.) – Today, the Bluegrass Institute called on the Kentucky General Assembly to censure Rep. Kelly Flood, D-Lexington, for disparaging comments she made during Tuesday’s meeting of the House Appropriations and Revenue Committee, which were directed toward supporters of scholarship tax-credit legislation which would allow poor and learning-disabled youngsters to attend private and parochial schools.

“Effectively, you are asking the state to become your next major donor to raise approximately $25 million to reimburse donors who have a crisis of faith in contributing currently for the past 20 years, specifically in this state to private institutions that are funding schools that are religious, that have been in the headlines for two decades now with chronic, systemic child abuse,” Flood hatefully spouted toward school-choice supporters.

In the following video, please notice how Flood continued her rude, angry outburst even after committee Chairman Steven Rudy, R-Paducah, ruled her out of order.

When will minorities ever realize that white liberals, who choose the best schools for their kids, herd minority kids into horrible, union controlled public schools which have failed to educate for the last fifty years. The “students” graduate public high schools reading at a 4th grade level and mathematically incompetent. The liberals also situate their abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods.
