NOW—A TENNESSEE LAWMAKER IS RESPONDING TO CRITICISM… AFTER SAYING HE SUPPORTS GETTING RID OF HIGHER EDUCATION BECAUSE HE ARGUES IT WOULD QUOTE CUT OFF THE “LIBERAL BREEDING GROUND.” SENATOR KERRY ROBERTS MADE THAT COMMENT….ON HIS CONSERVATIVE RADIO TALK SHOW LAST WEEK. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT ATTENDING A RECENT ABORTION LEGISLATIVE HEARING. ROBERTS CALLED OUT ONE ACTIVIST WHO TESTIFIED IN FAVOR OF PROTECTING ABORTION RIGHTS. ASSERTING WITHOUT EVIDENCE THAT THE WOMAN’S BELIEFS WERE A “PRODUCT OF HIGHER EDUCATION” AND CLAIMED THAT GETTING RID OF HIGHER EDUCATION WOULD “SAVE AMERICA.” ROBERTS IS NOW CLARIFYING HIS PREVIOUS STATEMENT. SAYING QUOTE: “WHILE THE CALL FOR ELIMINATING HIGHER EDUCATION WAS CLEARLY HYPERBOLE, I STAND BEHIND MY GENERAL CRITIQUE OF LIBERAL ARTS EDUCATION IN AMERICA ONE HUNDRED PERCENT.” KRISTIN THE TENNESSEE SMOKIES BASEBALL TEAM ARE ASKING FOR YOU HELP FINDING ONE OF THEIR OWN. THE TEAM’S GROUNDS DOG HAS GONE MISSING FROM THE STADIUM. YOU MAY HAVE SEEN HIM AROUND-HIS NAME IS “HOUND DOG”.
