Department of Education Treats Kids to Mao Quote

Although the exact number of his own people he killed will never be known, Mao Zedong is history’s undisputed leader among genocidal tyrants in terms of body count, making him arguably the most evil man who ever lived. Mao is also noteworthy in that former Obama Communications Director Anita Dunn considers him one of her two favorite political philosophers. Dunn has moved on now, but adoration for Mao lives on in the administration. Friday’s quote of day at the Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics website:

“Our attitude towards ourselves should be ‘to be satiable in learning’ and towards others ‘to be tireless in teaching.’”

The quote is from Chairman Mao.

After the general public had become aware of the quote, it was pulled and replaced with the message, “Sorry there is no quote of the of day today.” Someone in the government must realize that it is still premature to expect the population to share the federal bureaucracy’s reverence for communist dictators.

The Internet is written in indelible ink.

On tips from Bill T, G. Fox, and Wiggins.

    Think they’ll print this famous Mao quote?

    Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.

    No, I think the way things are going they’ll print their favorite Che quotes:

    “Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!”

    “I am not Christ or a philanthropist, old lady, I am all the contrary of a Christ … I fight for the things I believe in, with all the weapons at my disposal and try to leave the other man dead so that I don’t get nailed to a cross or any other place.”

    “In fact, if Christ himself stood in my way, I, like Nietzsche, would not hesitate to squish him like a worm.”

    Meanwhile while Skidwell and Friends are on spring break and the Sequester is only affecting White House tours the first kiddies are living it up on the taxpayers dime!

    We let this grow like a cancer, and now it’s out of control. “Oh, we’re sorry! We overlooked that Mao quote. We’ll take it down!” Right. Then to days from now, another atrocity will show up elsewhere.

    The only solution is a total purge of the government (Dem AND Repub) and a return to a constitutional republic.

    Ain’t gonna happen, though. We’ve turned our back on God, and now we’re going to pay the piper.

    Rust never sleeps.

    “Communism is not love. Communism is a hammer which we use to crush the enemy.”

    This Mao quote may soon be found in a new children’s book: The Little Commie That Could.

    Republican supermajorities in both legislative houses, and yet this garbage is tolerated in Texas.

    We’re screwed as a nation.

    Disregard. Wrong thread.

    “ be satiable in learning..” I’m sorry..isn’t ‘satiable’ to be satisfied or ‘full’, appeased?…shouldn’t you be ‘insatiable’ for knowledge? Unless you watch MSNBC?

  17. Son of Taz says:

    Doug’s post is right on, and the bureauweenies at the Fed and state level best pay attention to it.

  18. The MaryHunter says:

    “Sorry there is no quote of the of day today.”

    Yet another grand reflection on our Dept. of Edukashun.

    Also, Greg Gutfeld noted that in their “apology” for this “accident”, they blamed the error on a quotations database that had not been updated since… 2007.
