Remember the last time democrats blocked the GOP from entering schools because the GOP wanted black children to have a better education?
(Fox News) – Protesters initially blocked newly confirmed Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from entering a Washington, D.C., school on Friday – with one “Black Lives Matter” demonstrator even briefly standing in front of her vehicle.
DeVos later made it into Jefferson Middle School Academy in Southwest D.C. for her first visit as secretary to a public school. This was only after a teacher/parent “vigil” blocked the road by the front entrance, and a handful of Black Lives Matter protesters caused problems when DeVos tried to enter through the back entrance.
Protesters shouted “shame, shame” at the secretary as she was led back into her vehicle. One holding a Black Lives Matter sign then stood in front of the van, but was scolded by fellow protesters to “let her leave,” and he stepped aside.
White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway tweeted afterward: “Don’t we want the Sec of Education to visit schools?”
Following the visit, DeVos issued a statement thanking D.C. school officials, teachers and students for welcoming her and stressing that she believes a focus on students and families “is at the heart of providing an exceptional education.”
She added, “I respect peaceful protest, and I will not be deterred in executing the vital mission of the Department of Education. No school door in America will be blocked from those seeking to help our nation’s school children.”
Powerline: ANOTHER DEMOCRATIC PARTY DISGRACE
The Washington Teachers’ Union also sponsored a demonstration, but they claimed that the protesters who blocked the school house door–Democrats make a habit of that–were not with them. Watching the video reminds us that these are not normal people who are merely mistaken about an issue. They are terrible human beings.

Was the Gov. Wallace analogy a slight stretch?
No. Not so much, given the current tone and violent activism from the democrats and left in this country.
