Mary Lou Bruner, a Republican candidate for the state school board of education in Texas, is getting some media attention for a series of bizarre Facebook posts about pre-K programs.
In the posts, she alleges that “The GLBTQ agenda is one of the big reasons the liberals want 3-year-old and 4-year-old children to attend public school Pre-K programs. The federal government wants to indoctrinate the little children, teaching them a homosexual marriage is just as good as a marriage with a father and a mother.”
These claims, which come on the heels of a Facebook post in which she claimed that President Obama worked as a prostitute in order to score drugs, suggest that Bruner has an odd fixation with homosexuality as well as a distinctly surreal worldview.
In a post to her Facebook profile, Bruner alleges that liberals are trying to force young children into school earlier in order to make them gay, claiming “Children who get government indoctrination in Pre-K are going to become confused about their sexuality.”
Though homosexuality was the main focus of Bruners’ surreal rant, she also decried the “socialistic and multicultural agenda” she believes pre-K pushes “onto these impressionable little children who believe anything they are told.”
According to Bruner, this focus on inclusivity would lead to rebellious children “because the government curriculum plans to tell the children not to listen to their parents if their parents tell them something different.”
“The government curriculum plans to tell the little children their parents are ignorant, and they don’t understand because of the way the parents were taught. Or the little children will be told their parents are bigoted because they do not accept Islam and gay marriage,” She continued.
The joke’s on Bruner, because it doesn’t even take a pre-K education to know that she’s ignorant and bigoted.
Update: Bruner was ultimately denied a spot on the state board of education. As news about her penchant for conspiracy theories circulated, her lead in the primary shrunk and she ended up losing by about 18 percent in the primary runoff.
