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.

Why?

“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.
