Whaddup, Iowa?

Previous attempt by Republicans to spy on kids didn’t go so well.

Guys, yesterday we noted that the Gret Stet of Iowa had decided to throw themselves to the tender mercies of the Trump-Virus, and today we learn that they are not done with Republican Culture Wars:

A new proposal from an Iowa House Republican would place cameras in every public school classroom with the exception of physical and special education rooms…

…According to [Rep. Norlin Mommsen of DeWitt] bill, the cameras would be connected to the internet, and parents and guardians would have access to a live feed to watch what is happening in their child’s classroom during normal attendance hours…

…This legislation follows up on months of Republican efforts to impose tighter control over what is taught in Iowa classrooms after a series of far-right online articles whipped up paranoia, often based on false or distorted claims, over public school curriculum. Some state senators have called for jailing teachers over out-of-context passages in various books available in some school libraries.

Totally not Orwellian at all to install cameras everywhere, but on the plus side it will be easier for hairy-knuckled Republican pervs to oogle your kiddos just to get their jollies.

The ball is in your court, Iowa Democrats.

    Concern about school shootings? Umm, not so much.

  2. Someone alert the Q-borg that Iowa Republicans are demanding that the derpstate pedophiles get video access to all their kids in school, so they can hold their satanic auctions to choose which ones to disappear.

    Then tell them that this is feeding the selected victims into a huge nationwide network of Papa Johns pizzerias which all have secret tunnels underneath them for convenient extraction of adrenochrome…

    Look, If we have to live with masses of delusional, batshit insane armed nutbags , lets at least aim them at worthwhile targets instead of [checks notes] butterfly sanctuaries

  3. Also, utterly off topic, but I saw some pictures of Buscemi dressed like that for Halloween this year passing out candy in his neighborhood 🙂

    If I was a teacher in Iowa, I’d start looking for a teaching job in a sane state, you know, one that doesn’t watch your every move. I’m left wondering if the fresh crop of teachers near graduating feel there are better prospects elsewhere?

    I could be okay with this if, in return, ALL of the Iowa state legislators’ political meetings were also videoed and available on line for all to see. This would include any and all meetings where politics are discussed. All meetings with donors, including all phone calls, golf outings, dinners or cocktail parties. These things have just as much impact, possibly more, on our children’s future as what goes on in the classroom.

    Does anyone see an opportunity to push for distance learning or e-learning or whatever they’re calling it this month?
    I mean, if the state won’t track Covid anymore, sell this to the rubes as monitoring your own kid’s lessons from the comfort of home and don’t point out that it enforces social distancing.

    My guess is that this will cost at least two teaching positions in order to pay for, install and maintain the spying equipment surveillance system. Because the guy who monitors the system will get paid twice as much as a stinking no good hippy teacher.
