BATON ROUGE, La. – An attempt to brand Common Core opponents as people too ignorant to know fantasy from reality has backfired. The New Orleans-based Alliance for Better Classrooms PAC launched a marketing campaign last week with stuffed pink unicorns. The unicorns, which were placed on the desks of Louisiana lawmakers, had tags that said, “Unicorns are not real. And neither are most of the things you’ve heard about Common Core.” The tags also referenced a website titled Unicorns Are Not Real, which organization officials say was created to dispel Common Core “myths” […]

Hubris. The organization, Unicorns Are Not Real, posted the names of those purported to be Common Core supporters, many of whom it appears are jumping through hoops to distance themselves from the group allegedly without their permission.

For example, former Governor Mike Huckabee who at one time was an advocate for Common Core before he was against it. On Monday, Huckabee posted the following statement on to his Facebook page:

A pro-Common Core group is using my name without permission and attributing ideas to me that are wholly untrue. I have stated many times over that I oppose Common Core and anyone who says otherwise is either misinformed or not telling the truth. I believe education is a family function, not a federal function – period.

Nothing is more emblematic of Washington arrogance and reckless central planning than Common Core. The federal government has stuck its obtrusive nose into local education and hijacked the system. We must kill Common Core and restore common sense.

Suggested reading: Breitbart’s article, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee among Those Mocking Common Core Opponents with Unicorns for the list of governors, public officials and organizations across the United States allegedly onboard with Unicorns Are Not Real.

Keep these establishment goons in mind on Election Day.
