Holder: You Have No Fundamental Right to Homeschool

Holder: You Have No Fundamental Right to Homeschool

Germany is rabidly anti-homeschool, an attitude that stems back to Hitler’s day.

They persecute families that try to educate their children at home to the point they actually seek asylum in America.

They were granted it.

This may shock you, but Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is actively working against granting their request.


“The U.S. Attorney General has said this about homeschooling. There is no fundamental liberty to homeschool.”

As a homeschool dad, and a free man, I disagree:

There are two major portions of constitutional rights of citizens—fundamental liberties and equal protection. The U.S. Attorney General has said this about homeschooling. There is no fundamental liberty to homeschool. So long as a government bans homeschooling broadly and equally, there is no violation of your rights. This is a view which gives some acknowledgement to the principle of equal protection but which entirely jettisons the concept of fundamental liberties.

In the mind of Eric Holder, your rights are what the government says they are.

    Mr. Holder needs to read his case law very carefully. In the UNANIMOUS US Supreme Court Pierce decision (Oregon, 1925) the court very clearly said “no” to this attempted usurpation of parents’ rights. Read it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierce_v._Society_of_Sisters

    ” The fundamental theory of liberty upon which all governments in this Union repose excludes any general power of the state to standardize its children by forcing them to accept instruction from public teachers only.”

    Mr. Holder, you’re wrong. Get over it.

    SCREW CASE LAW!!! It is NOT based on the Constitution!! This is one of the ways we have allowed our country to become unrecognizable!! “The powers not delegated to the United States by this constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states, respectively, or to the people” this is the case for education!! There shouldn’t be a dept of ed, nclb, race tot he top, or common core!!! There definitely shouldn’t be some law flunky (take your pick – obama / holder) telling anyone about the law or the Constitution since both are mental midgets guided only by some whack agenda!!! When are American CITIZENS going to pull their heads out of their a$$es and vote this kind of abusers of power out of there?!? This is the same thing that happened in germany and italy during the 1930’s …I am NOT saying Obama is hitler but hitler was elected through democratic means and consolidated power to the point where he was easily able to become SUPREME CHANCELLOR (dictator).

    Public school is indoctrination not education

    We already know where Holder is coming from and who is pressing his button. Home school is necessary when parents feel that traditional schooling isn’t teaching correctly i.e. no flag recitals or anything patriotic, no shouting USA at sports since it might offend some immigrant to which I say “when in Rome” you no like pack up and go back home…
