Arizona's Top Education Lawmaker Is A Chemtrail Nut

Arizona's Top Education Lawmaker Is A Chemtrail Nut

Yes, Arizona's deep Red legislature has a new head of the state Senate Education Committee, and she's a doozy.

Not only is she a chemtrail nut, she's a special snowflake from Snowflake.

An Arizona lawmaker who believes the earth is only 6,000 years old and that the U.S. government regularly sprays its citizens with mind-controlling chemtrails has been selected to lead an Arizona legislative committee overseeing education.

Sen. Sylvia Allen (R-Snowflake), was selected by fellow Republican and Senate president Andy Biggs to chair of the Arizona Senate Education Committee, according to 12News. The committee acts as a gatekeeper for education-related laws, including Common Core and spending.

“She understands what Arizona students and parents need in our education system,” Biggs told reporters in a prepared statement. “She is a very experienced legislator and I know she will do a wonderful job.”

According to AZCentral, Allen attended high school but did not go to college. She helped found a charter school in her home town of Snowflake.

Awww, isn't that sweet? A charter school in a town with 1,312 households. Because I'm sure those taxpayers need to pay extra for a school where special Snowflakers attend.

But seriously, this woman is a tea partyer's dream.

Here she is, arguing for mandatory church attendance.

She put her thoughts about chemtrails conspiracies on Facebook:

I have watched the chem-trails move out until the entire sky is covered with flimsy, thin cloud cover. It is not the regular exhaust coming from the plane it is something they are spraying. It is there in plain sight. What is it they are leaving behind that covers the sky?

Things are happening all around us that we see everyday and just don't get what it is.

She doesn't get what it is, so it must be a conspiracy and it must be bad. This is the woman who will control education legislation in Arizona.

Here's one more interesting theory from her. One you had to know was coming:

"(The Earth) has been here 6,000 years, long before anybody had environmental laws, and somehow it hasn't been done away with," Allen said.

Those poor Arizona students.
