The Town of Normal and the Chemberly Cummings proved Fair and Balanced was never the goal of the Youth On A Mission project. The 3 presentations last Monday, that took close to 45 minutes, were nothing but democrat talking points. Tax dollars were used to lobby for one side while ignoring the other.
You can see slides of their presentation by hitting Play below. The slides are fuzzy at best, I don’t know why.
This group wants everybody driving an EV to combat the climate crisis.
- Tax credits are mentioned, not the deficit these kids will inherit because of handouts.
- They claimed a Tesla Model X can drive 100 miles for $4.49. That won’t be attractive when electricity almost doubles this summer considering that vehicle is MUCH more expensive than gas powered.
- They want Normal to transition to electric vehicles and build more charging stations. Will taxpayers getting the electricity bill like now?
- They didn’t mention EV’s don’t contribute to fixing roads through Motor Fuel Taxes. (Eventually they will be taxed)
- Mining the rare minerals needs for batteries wasn’t mentioned. Getting them from China or Russia wasn’t mentioned either.
- They mentioned ways to generate electricity, the war on natural gas and nuclear energy will limit the supply of electricity for the 1 million new EV’s they expect. Blackouts and brownouts in California weren’t mentioned.
This list could be endless, but it proves the students were only exposed to one side of the issue.
This group wants a Cultural Diversity Center in Normal. Do they know ISU already has one? Democrats play identity politics to divide people from each other. Diversity based on ethnicity is racist, even worse is expecting taxpayers to fund it. We used to be Americans, a melting pot. Those days are gone.
I can see why this group went last. They want taxpayers to build a pocket neighborhood for the homeless. They didn’t explore why people are homeless, they think this will help “get people back on their feet”. They are oblivious to the fact that many people don’t want to get back on the feet due to mental illness or drug use.
Seattle bought numerous hotels, spending millions, to house the homeless. Google it. It didn’t work.
See 34:53, one student did a drawing of the “village”.
I predict Youth On A Mission will be back next year at taxpayers expense. Diversity in the leaders is needed. This year they had none and it showed.
This is what teaching kids what to think looks like. They should be taught HOW to think. Youth on a Mission is nothing more than creating future Democrats with your tax dollars. Maybe that’s why only Unit 5 students were allowed to participate. The students were engaged, they didn’t know they were actually indoctrinated.
