Here are some more pornographic sexual and homosexual books for children and teenagers in a Wyoming Public Library – and likely also in your town.

Worse than most people can imagine.

Local parents are outraged. Wyoming MassResistance is taking action.

When parents send their kids to the library, they don't realize that this is what they're being shown.

In schools and public libraries across the country, the children’s and teens’ sections have been deluged with lurid pornographic sexual and homosexual books for young people. The clear intent is to sexualize children and normalize perverse homosexual behaviors in their minds. This nightmarish trend is being defended by library staffers, the left-wing American Library Association, and numerous LGBT groups. But MassResistance is helping parents fight it!

Last month we showed you sample pages from a few of the books for young people that Wyoming MassResistance parents found in their local Gillette, WY branch of the Campbell County Public Library. Below are some more. They are likely also in a public library near you.

Sex Plus

CLASSIFICATION: Young Adult Nonfiction – in Teen room

SUMMARY: The writer works for Planned Parenthood. This is what Planned Parenthood (and obviously the library staff) want for your children. One parent described this book as "pure evil." It coaches children to get involved with masturbation, "butt sex," "kink," and BDSM - which includes biting, restraints, electric shocks, sex with strangers, etc .
Read sample pages here. (CAUTION: obscene material.)

Sex is a Funny Word

CLASSIFICATION: Ages 8-11 – in Children’s room

SUMMARY: This appears to be a book written by a pedophile. It coaches 8-11 year-olds to be comfortable getting naked and being touched. And in particular, to feel okay having their anus touched.
Read sample pages here. (CAUTION: obscene material.)

A Quick & Easy Guide to Sex & Disability

CLASSIFICATION: Young Adult Nonfiction – in Teen room

SUMMARY: This bizarre book seems to have little to do with "disabilities" and a lot to do with telling teenagers about homosexuality and unhealthy sex practices.
Read sample pages here. (CAUTION: obscene material.)

How Do You Make a Baby

CLASSIFICATION: Ages 4-10 – in Children’s room

SUMMARY: By looking at the cover, you would assume this is mild children's book about how babies are born. No. This is actually a pornographic sex book with graphic drawings that are outrageously inappropriate for 4-10 year-olds. One really wonders about the mental state of the author.
Read sample pages here. (CAUTION: obscene material.)

Gender Queer

CLASSIFICATION: Young Adult Nonfiction – in Teen room

SUMMARY: Gender Queer is a revolting graphic biography of a young female wants to be male, but has to figure out how to incorporate her female body into that fantasy. It has depictions of her masturbating while pretending to be male and imagining she has a penis that's receiving homosexual oral sex.
Read sample pages here. (CAUTION: obscene material.)

Dating and Sex

CLASSIFICATION: Young Adult Nonfiction – in Teen room

SUMMARY: It calls itself a book about "dating." It's also a weird guide to masturbation and enjoying pornography.
Read sample pages here. (CAUTION: obscene material.)

All of the books in the previous post and all of these (except Sex is a Funny Word) have been formally challenged by the Wyoming MassResistance parents - using the library's bureaucratic process. So far four of the challenges have been formally denied by the library staff, and we're still waiting for the rest. Eventually, all of them will probably be denied.

At this point all we can say is that normal people would never be a part of sexualizing kids in this vile way. There is something very disordered with these people who are staffing our libraries.

Please help us continue to do our uncompromising work!

Our successes depend on people like you.

Deep State Targets Outraged Parents as “Terrorists”

The Deep State is now taking aim at parents concerned about the indoctrination of their children in government schools, with the National Association of School Boards and the Deep State-controlled Biden administration going so far as to portray parents as "domestic terrorists," warns The New American magazine's Alex Newman in this episode of Behind The Deep State. There have been no actual threats or acts of violence so far. This is all part of a broader trend of sidelining parents and having government step in to fill their role, as totalitarians have sought to do for over a century. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona even suggested publicly in Congress that parents were not the primary stakeholders in the education of their own children. The Deep State wants your children--and only you can protect them!

Biden, AG Merrick Garland weaponizing Justice Dept., FBI against “domestic terrorist” parents whose only “crime” is complaining to school boards

BY J. D. HEYES

(Natural News) For four years, leftists claimed that President Donald Trump was a tyrant and was taking away their rights, though not a single one of them could name any.

However, Joe Biden’s handlers are increasingly becoming tyrannical, as evidenced by an announcement made from Attorney General Merrick Garland this week.

In response to a hysterical letter sent to Biden from the National School Board Association claiming that ‘violent’ parents were making “threats” against local school board members and that the federal government should use “domestic terrorism” laws to go after them and shut them up, Garland was instructed to comply and so he has.

The American Wire provides some more detail:

The Justice Department on Monday announced an effort to combat alleged threats and violence against members of school boards as well as public school staff and officials just days after a national school board organization appealed to President Joe Biden for federal assistance.

According to the department, Garland directed U.S. attorneys’ offices and the FBI to meet within the next month with federal, state, tribal, and local law enforcement officials “to discuss strategies for addressing” what the DoJ called “an increase in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school board members, teachers and workers in our nation’s public schools.”

“Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” said Garland in a statement. “Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety.”

“The Department takes these incidents seriously and is committed to using its authority and resources to discourage these threats, identify them when they occur, and prosecute them when appropriate,” Garland noted further in a memo. “In the coming days, the Department will announce a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel.”

In their letter to Biden, association president Viola M. Garcia and interim executive director and CEO Chip Slaven claimed school board members and school officials all over the country are facing “threats of violence and acts of intimidation,” while going on to ask the administration to consider whether parents’ actions should be considered “domestic terrorism” under current statutes like the Patriot Act.

“While local and state law enforcement agencies are working with public school officials in several communities to prevent further disruptions to educational services and school district operations, law enforcement officials in some jurisdictions need assistance – including help with monitoring the threat levels,” they wrote.

“As these threats and acts of violence have become more prevalent … NSBA respectfully asks that a joint collaboration among federal law enforcement agencies, state and local law enforcement, and with public school officials be undertaken to focus on these threats,” the pair noted further.

They went on to write that the “acts of malice, violence, and threats” may constitute “a form of domestic terrorism.”

“As such,” they maintained, they asked Biden to direct the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security to examine their complaints and deploy the FBI and “any other federal agency with relevant jurisdictional authority and oversight” to deal with parental “terrorists.”

Republicans were livid at the administration for considering parents in such a way — literally weaponizing the Justice Department and FBI against ordinary, powerless citizens.

“Practically every day brings new reports about this administration weaponizing the federal bureaucracy to go after political opponents; frankly I don’t think we’ve ever seen anything like it in American history,” GOP Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri said to Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco during a Tuesday hearing.

“I mean for those of us who missed the McCarthy era, I guess this president is intent at bringing it to us but with new force and new power and new urgency unlike anything, we’ve ever seen,” he added.

Tipping Point: Nicole Neily on Concerned Parents Being Treated as Domestic Terrorists

Rumble — Nicole Neily on Concerned Parents Being Treated as Domestic Terrorists

Marxianity: Corruption of the Church by Radical Left

In this interview with The New American magazine's Senior Editor Alex Newman, author and prominent radio host Brannon Howse calls out various evils and lies that are corrupting churches across the nation. These include “social justice,” “white privilege,” socialism, communism, LGBTism, anti-Americanism, and more. Howse, who has been sounding the alarm for decades, blames some of the biggest names in evangelicalism for either helping or tolerating this subversion of U.S. churches. The church must fight back, he said, pointing to churches in Germany that went along with Adolf Hitler's National Socialist evil. 🇺🇸 The New American: http://www.thenewamerican.com/

Wyoming MassResistance activists stop public library’s “transgender magic show for kids” event before it starts

Dishonest LGBT activists made it a national media story, then defaced a local church.

But local citizens refuse to be intimidated, and stand even stronger!

Outside the library the message was very direct. And it got results!

Even in conservative northeast Wyoming, LGBT activists are aggressive in their efforts to proselytize children – and vicious towards anyone who opposes them.

When the public library in Gillette invited a “transgender woman” (a man) to perform children’s and teens' events, the local MassResistance citizens prevented that from happening. In retaliation, Library officials spread exaggerated stories about supposed “threats” and the national media got involved to purposefully inflame the situation. Wyoming MassResistance responded with a demonstration to show they weren’t intimidated. LGBT activists retaliated by defacing a local church and threatening a Sunday morning protest. But the church members also refused to be intimidated.

The public library’s assault on youth

Earlier this summer local citizens in Gillette, WY began to notice that a lot of pornographic and homosexual and transgender themed books had appeared in the children’s and teen sections of their local branch of the Campbell County Public Library. On July 7, they came to their County Commission meeting to voice their outrage and demand something be done. A few of the Commission members seemed concerned but they didn’t do anything.

At that same meeting, the Library Director spoke and defended the books! It turns out she was just getting started.

Here’s what happened over the next several days:

Library invites “transgender magician” to perform for children

A few days after the County Commission meeting, the library announced that it had booked a magician-comedian to perform for kids at the Campbell County Public Library. This performer is a “transgender woman” (a man who pretends to be female) who calls himself Mikayla Oz. He was scheduled to perform at the library on July 14 for “school-age kids” and again on July 15 for “teens only.” The library was also paying for Oz to perform at the local Boys and Girls Club.

To parents and other citizens, this was clearly another in-your-face push by the LGBT movement on the local youth by the radical library staff. It was particularly disturbing given the recent history of some “transgender” entertainers for children at public libraries turning out to be convicted child molesters. That possibility was apparently of no concern to the library staff; they admitted that they had not attempted any background check on Oz.

ALT TEXT 
Attracting teens to the July 15 "performance."

This was part of a larger social media campaign by the library to attract younger kids to the July 14 event and teens to the July 15 event.

Before long, a recent YouTube video surfaced in which Oz drops his pants and cavorts about in underwear (revealing he was a man), and suggests that a “wild ride” was ahead for the coming year. The entertainer projects activism all across his YouTube page, and local parents were understandably outraged.

Parents spread the word, announce protest at library

On Sunday, July 11, three days before the event, the Wyoming MassResistance group met to discuss what to do. They decided to hold a protest in front of the library during the first day of the event, Wednesday, July 14. This sort of protest is rare in Gillette, so it would definitely send a strong message! They also decided to use social media to spread the word about the event (many people were unaware) and also the protest. The news traveled quickly.

ALT TEXT

Word also got around that the Executive Director of the statewide LGBT group “Wyoming Equality” was coming to Gillette to lead a counter-protest to harass the parents who were protesting. So the parents met with the local police department to make sure there would be a police presence there, and that all would remain peaceful.

The “magician” decides to cancel his performances because of an upcoming protest

On July 13, the day before the first event, Mikayla Oz announced he was canceling all his shows in Campbell County (Gillette Library, Wright Library, and Boys and Girls Club). The reason he gave, according to a County Commissioner who spoke with him, is that he didn’t want children coming to his event to have to deal with a protest. It was a victory for the parents!

Library claims that cancellation was because of “threats”

Within hours after Oz’s decision to cancel his shows, the library staff posted a notice on Facebook that Oz had decided to cancel because of “safety concerns.” This contradicts what Oz had told the County Commissioner.

ALT TEXT

The library’s notice said, “The cancellation came after threats were made directly to Oz and to library staff.” But no police report was filed, which is very suspicious given the gravity of the charges.

What exactly were the alleged threats?

Library Director Terri Lesley later told a Gillette newspaper that a local man had come into the library and said to one of the staffers that “there had been a parent meeting and that he was upset – and that we should close the library because it wasn’t safe to be there,”

In addition, Oz (who by then had changed his story) told the newspaper that he received a phone call saying “You better not f—- come to Gillette. If you do, there’ll be issues.” Oz said he’d received an email with a similar message.

There were no “threats” noted. People in Gillette have told us that they can’t believe that these could be considered actual threats, especially since the library didn’t bother to file a police report. The parents also can’t imagine any of them saying or writing even those things. It seemed more like an attempt by the library and LGBT activists to save face and demean the parents.

As one local citizen wrote:

This “harassment” narrative was obviously cooked up to give individuals involved in child exploitation some sort of legitimacy, where in reality there was none. The idea was to smear the community that spoke out against a man pretending to be a woman that wanted to perform in front of children.

The library also said that “misinformation about the performances was spread via social media." But they didn’t say what the so-called “misinformation” was. Why not?

The parents and citizens hold the protest anyway

Even though the transgender performer’s shows were canceled, the parents decided to hold the protest anyway. They wanted to send a strong message to the library about this, and also show the community that conservative voices are not backing down.

The protest was a great success! People liked it. The library staff hated it. And the LGBT counter-protest never materialized.

Library’s claim of ‘threats’ makes national (and international) media

The LGBT movement is very skilled at sensationalizing an otherwise mundane story and getting it covered by the media – and expanding it nationally (and even internationally). That’s exactly what they did with this.

Within a day, the story was screaming across the country and beyond. And the “threats” had now morphed into “violent and frightening threats” and “death threats.” Of course, Oz was only referred to as a “she.” Here is a sample of the coverage:

LGBT activists retaliate by defacing a local church and threatening to harass churchgoers

The day after the protest, Thursday, July 15, people who came to the Central Baptist Church in Gillette saw that the church had been defaced with ugly LGBT messages. The church was targeted because the pastor, Rev. Scott Clem, had been outspoken at the recent County Commission meeting about morality and the public library.

Besides the vandalism, there were threats against the church, and LGBT activists had announced that they were going show up at the church that Sunday morning to protest and harass churchgoers.

On Sunday three police officers showed up in case the protest got out of hand. But there was no protest. Instead, there was a robust response from the community! Besides the congregants, a dozen or more people from different denominations came to show solidarity with Pastor Scott. One couple even drove 240 miles from Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Final reflection

This was a great victory! The fact that the LGBT movement and the library staff reacted in the extreme and dishonest way they did indicates that the parents are hitting the nail on the head. They intend to protect vulnerable children (and the public funding) from that poisonous agenda and are not the least bit afraid of or intimidated.

The Left is used to dealing with conservatives who are more fearful and less resolute. That’s not happening in Gillette, Wyoming!

Please help us continue to do our uncompromising work!

Our successes depend on people like you.

Epic School Board Meltdown Over Mother’s Quiet Objections to Child Porn and Pedophilia in School Books at three schools

BY RICK MORAN

Fairfax County public schools in Virginia are among the best in the country. Many of the nation’s elites move to the district just so they can send their children the public schools there.

But not all is right with Fairfax schools. And one quiet, unassuming mother was brave enough to get up in front of the local school board and point that out.

Stacy Langton was very concerned after watching a video of a Texas school board meeting that highlighted the availability of two books that contain several graphic and obscene illustrations of gay sex. She wondered if the books — Lawn Boy by Jonathan Evison and Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe — were available to students in the Fairfax school system.

They were. And she wanted to know why.

It should be made absolutely clear that Langton was being perfectly reasonable during her opportunity to speak before the board. She wasn’t shouting or grandstanding. She was passionate, but who wouldn’t be? Langdon was objecting to the fact that pornography was being made available — at the expense of taxpayers — to the young adults of Fairfax County. For those who might think calling those books porn is an exaggeration, it would be good to be reminded of Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart’s famous definition of porn: “I know it when I see it.”

Clearly, Mrs. Langton saw child porn and pedophilia in those books. Watch the video below (warning: graphic description of gay sex):

The school board went ballistic and eventually ended up having the meeting room cleared. The entire incident was documented by Asra Q. Nomani of Parents Defending Education.

At that point, the board chair, Stella Pekarsky, huddled with Laura Jane Cohen, another board member, sitting to Pekarsky’s left.

“This was not an oversight at Fairfax High School,” Langton began.

At that point, Cohen interrupted — something that board rules say that members cannot do during citizen participation — “Excuse me, madame chair,” she said to Pekarsky, claiming, “There are children in the audience.”

I looked around. There were none at that point.

Pekarsky tried to interrupt Langton.

The mother, Langton, was not going to be interrupted. “Do not interrupt my time,” she demanded.

Parents and audience members started booing the board.

“You are sick!” one man yelled to the board.

Langton insisted, correctly, that her time be restored.

She continued: “These books are in stock available at the libraries of Robinson, Langley and….,”

Mrs. Langton felt that the shock from describing what was in the books might move the board to act.

“Both of these books include pedophilia, sex between men and boys.” One book included a fourth-grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male.

It was a forlorn hope as the board turned off her mic and tried to move on.

Nomani had nothing but praise for Mrs. Langton, who stood up to the bullying by the school board.

Stacy Langton had exactly the kind of clarity, courage and conviction that every parent must harness as we battle ideologues and activists who sit on their high horses— as the board members did later that night when they returned — misrepresenting parents, lecturing them and essentially thinking they just know so much better than them.

Denied her time, Langton wouldn’t leave the podium. Fairfax County Public Schools security officials approached her at the podium, one of them reaching for her books from behind her, before she took hold of them. She refused to leave, her eyebrows righteously furrowing in moral outrage.

Nomani’s Substack post contains a Tweet that we can’t reproduce here because of the graphically obscene cartoon illustrations of gay sex embedded in the video. But Mrs. Langdon felt that something had to be done to get those books out of the library and keep impressionable young students from being exposed to porn.

If parents — all parents, not just those following the school board’s actions closely — knew about things like this, there would be torches, pitchforks, tar, and feathers. But that’s exactly what the board — and the left in general — is counting on. Our apathy, our desire to be left alone in our own little worlds.

Thankfully, Mrs. Langton is brave enough to want to do something about it.

School District Pulls Book That Included Sodomy Scene. Furious Mom Hits School Board

BY R. CORT KIRKWOOD

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/school-district-pulls-book-that-included-sodomy-scene-furious-mom-hits-school-board/;

No sooner did the public-school board in Hudson, Ohio, pull a textbook that the mayor said promoted kiddie porn, than a school board in Austin, Texas, pulled one for about the same reason.

In the latest case, the book contained at least one scene involving anal sodomy. That didn’t much please an angry mom who read a passage to the Lake Travis School Board on September 15.

Shortly thereafter, the school board pulled the book from two middle-school libraries. The board is reviewing Out of Darkness, is about a love affair between a black boy and a Mexican girl, and uses a school explosion in 1937 in New London as historical background.

“Material of a Pornographic Nature”

Board members undoubtedly received a shock when Kara Bell marched up the podium during the time allowed for public comment and read an unsavory passage.

“Take her out back, we boys figured, then hands on the t***ies,” Bell read verbatim. “Put it in her coin box, put it in her cornhole, grab a hold of that braid, rub that Calico.”

Cornhole is a popular beanbag game, but Bell told the board she had to Google the sexual meaning of the term. She wasn’t happy, of course, when she learned it’s slang for the anus.

“I’ve never had anal sex, I don’t want to have anal sex,” Bell fumed. “I don’t want my kids having anal sex. I want you to start focusing on education and not public health.”

Bell lost a race for the school board in May.

KXAN, the NBC affiliate in Austin, reported that someone phoned the board to say a pornographic book was in a middle school library, after which the school removed it from two schools.

A spokesman told the station that a district has “significant discretion to determine the content of its school libraries,” but must “exercise its discretion in a manner consistent with the First Amendment.”

Although the schools can’t “remove materials from a library for the purpose of denying students access to ideas with which the district disagrees,” they can purge materials that are “pervasively vulgar or based solely upon the educational suitability of the books in question.”

The district is reviewing the book, the affiliate reported. That must leave parents wondering whether books should be reviewed before they are chosen for the schools.

That aside, the pitch from Amazon is this:

Naomi Vargas and Wash Fuller know about the lines in East Texas as well as anyone. They know the signs that mark them. They know the people who enforce them. But sometimes the attraction between two people is so powerful it breaks through even the most entrenched color lines. And the consequences can be explosive.

That’s pretty bland, considering what’s inside the covers.

The station found the usual leftist to explain why kids should read about anal sex.

“I think to pretend books that deal explicitly with sex or sexual assault are in some way a threat to young people are doing them a disservice,” Jonathan Friedman of Pen America told the station.

Friedman, who wears two earrings, is the group’s free-speech expert: 

This is about having access for young people to a wide variety of literature that people from different backgrounds are reflected in.

You have a small contingent in many cases of parents who decide that they disagree, and that they must know better than those who are in the classroom.

Sex List

A lot of parents “know better than those who are in the classroom,” as the school board in Hudson, Ohio, found last week. 

Such was the material in a writing-class text titled 642 Things to Write About that Mayor Craig Shubert told the members to quit or be arrested for peddling child porn.

The book contained assignments such as writing a “a sex scene you wouldn’t show your mom,” and describing “a time when you wanted to orgasm but couldn’t.”

One parent, also a cop, said teachers should be monitored like those in his profession who must wear body cameras. Cameras, he said, should be installed in classrooms so parents can monitor what teachers are imparting to kids.

The board didn’t quit, but it did remove the book. Members admitted they didn’t know the schools were using it and that the review process for the book had failed.

Local citizens confront County Commission on pornographic children’s books in public library. But library director, LGBT activists come to defend the books. The battle is on!

Battle in Wyoming over graphic children's library books

Parents and citizens give direct and unflinching testimony.

But they're up against lies, deception, and twisted logic from the other side.

September 17, 2021
ALT TEXT 
The County Commission wasn't ready for all these people to come in and confront them over this.

In Gillette, Wyoming, the battle against pornographic library books for youth didn’t take long to ignite. The lies, deception, and twisted logic that the supporters and library officials use to defend their policies, however, are almost as disturbing as the books themselves. But the Wyoming MassResistance group is not backing down!

Earlier this summer, as we recently reported, local citizens in Gillette, WY, began to notice that a lot of lurid pornographic and graphic homosexual and transgender books had appeared in the children’s and teen sections of their local branch of the Campbell County Public Library. Apparently, the books originally showed up around “Gay Pride Month” this past June, which the library prominently celebrated.

ALT TEXT 
From the Campbell County Public Library website.

Compounding the problem of the pornographic and LGBT books, there are virtually no books in the children’s sections with a Christian worldview. But there seem to be many books promoting Satanism (some in a grisly manner) or other anti-Christian themes.

How can they deal with this situation?

Campbell County has a Library Board that oversees the operation of the county’s library. And clearly, the Board wasn’t doing its job. But the Library Board members are appointed (and can be dismissed) by the County Commission.

So, the local citizens decided to attend the July 7, 2021 meeting of the County Commission to demand that something be done about this.

The “public comments” from parents and citizens are very direct!

The parents and citizens came and filled most of the room at the July 7 meeting. About a dozen of them gave testimony. They were very well-prepared, articulate, and passionate. The video of the July 7 public comments section is posted here (starts at 3:59).

They described in detail the books that were in the children’s and teen sections. They brought copies of several of them. They also talked about what LGBT propaganda does to confused and impressionable teenagers. Some spoke from their own experiences as teenagers and a few were teachers who described their observations. One parent talked about a local 12-year girl who now insists that she is “poly-sexual.”

One local teacher explained that kids are searching for truth and meaning, and are looking for role models. But these books steer them in a very destructive direction. Others who testified agreed that the LGBT influence causes unhealthy and ruinous behaviors in young people, ultimately turning some of them suicidal.

This couple has a friend whose 12-year-old daughter has decided that she's "poly-sexual." Where does she get these ideas? From the radical propaganda being given to children in schools and libraries.

This woman held up one of the books in the public library for young people: "All Out: The No Longer Secret Stories of Queer Teens Throughout the Ages."
ALT TEXT 
This local teacher told the Commissioners that things are going in the wrong direction, it's causing a lot of problems with kids, and they need to do something about the Library Board because it has not been representing the community.

The supporters of those library books also spoke up

Somehow the word must have gotten out that the parents were coming. By coincidence, the Library Director also came to speak, along with the adult leader of the local chapter of PFLAG – a well-funded national organization that “supports” LGBT children, teenagers, and their families.

These LGBT advocates are passionate about making those graphic materials readily available to the children in the community. They use the well-crafted rhetoric and twisted logic that the LGBT movement has honed over the years to deal with so-called “bigots” who disagree with them.

The president of PFLAG Gillette got up to speak. She said:

I am the president of PFLAG Gillette. PFLAG is a support, education, and advocacy group for the LGBT community. I have a diverse family. I have children that identify as LGBTQ. We feel there is a great need in this community for more education.

The people who identify as LGBTQ are not child predators. They are my children. All of you probably know someone who identifies as gay. There’s not a gay agenda. There’s not a wish for recruiting others. You’re born that way – it may take a while to identify that way.

I think the answer to a lot of what has been talked about is more education. So if the library does have books on the LGBTQ experience that’s a good thing. I have read some of the books there and they give a fuller [sic] picture, a more human side to the experience of parents like myself. This is a country where we pride ourselves on the ability to access materials and free speech. So I would support the library in their book collection and thank them for having the courage to put that information and those books out there.

The president of the PFLAG chapter in Gillette.

This is well-crafted nonsense. No one is claiming that her children are child predators. But they are claiming that the library staff are very dysfunctional and malicious and that presenting sexually graphic books to teens will encourage experimentation. There is a “gay agenda” and we’ve all seen its effects on society (“same-sex marriage,” the transgender craze, the rapidly growing numbers of youth identifying as LGBT, etc). No one is “born that way.”

Like many parents of “gay” children, her solution is to “educate” everyone else’s children. It is obvious that giving children “more education” about perverse and unnatural homosexual and transgender behaviors only leads to experimentation, confusion, and emotional problems.

But most offensive is her comment about having “free access” to materials. That applies to adults, not children. The LGBT movement uses this as an excuse to push their agenda on vulnerable youth.

A pro-family mother then came up to speak

A pro-family mother then got up to speak. Regarding PFLAG, she said that she led a youth group in the community for years. She said that several of the kids also went to PFLAG meetings and told her that “none of them believe it; they just go for the free pizza.” (But many are drawn in nevertheless.) One boy told her that PFLAG told them to “bring in the lonely kids” – which she finds extremely disturbing.

The mother then described to the Commission members what she recently saw in the library:

I encourage all of you to go to the library and look at the Teen Room. I went in yesterday. I’ve never seen anything darker. I saw topics using words such as witchcraft, spells, dark, shadows, covens, blood, and curses. There’s also a book on surgically removing male genitals. They also have a large Black Lives Matter section, which we all know is Marxist in its roots. There’s no evidence in the Teen section of the kinds of books I grew up with, or you grew up with. It was all dark.

Even the toddler’s section has books such as one with a grandmother who’s mean and evil, who keeps a girl as a prisoner in her house, and drinks blood in a ritualistic manner – and on one of the pages, there’s blood everywhere! [She held up the book and showed the pages.] There’s something very wrong at the library.

ALT TEXT 
Holding up a page showing blood everywhere - from a gruesome book in the toddler's section.

The Executive Director of the library then spoke. Here is how she answered the mother’s comments (and the other parents’ comments) about the books in the library:

We have a collection development policy that requires us to vet everything that we bring into our library. There are many journals that we use, a school library journal for example. We go through a rigorous process. There’s also a process that our items can be challenged, that our Library Board can ultimately become involved in.

The mission of the library is to provide the first cultural opportunities for reading, learning, and entertainment to all citizens of our community. So there are going to be a wide range of diverse opinions, a wide range of things that people are going to want to get from the library. We consider ourselves neutral. We don’t consider ourselves political. We just try to provide a collection and programs that speak to what people in this community want. That’s what we do.

I really respect and appreciate everyone’s opinion who spoke today. I think though that there are a lot of opinions out there that might be alternative. We can’t take sides. We are a neutral place.

ALT TEXT 
The Executive Director of the Campbell County Public Library.

To put it bluntly, these are well-crafted lies and twisted logic. You cannot be “neutral” when it comes to harming children, especially with pornography and sexual material. And when she says “we can’t take sides” who does she think she’s fooling? Anyone who looks honestly at the library sees a monolithic left-wing and LGBT social agenda. There are virtually no books or other materials that counter that. Moreover, there is no “rigorous vetting program” of books – at least not by anyone with any common sense.

An underlying message was that the parents are out to “ban books” – a well-worn distortion promoted by the American Library Association meant to shame parents. There’s a major difference between “banning” what adults read – which the parents are not doing – and protecting vulnerable children from harmful material.

After that, a pro-LGBT lady came up to speak. She said that her grown goddaughter is “gay.” She claimed that the parents speaking today were showing animus against “gay” adults, and that angered her. “They’re not perverse, they’re just choosing to live this lifestyle,” she said. That’s a common strategy: to deflect the argument from the horrible content in the books and any true portrayal of LGBT behavior. Instead, there’s an attempt to shame the people who speak up by accusing them of “animus” or ill-feeling towards particular individuals.

What do the parents want?

At the end, the mother who spoke earlier got up again and addressed what the parents wanted the County Commission to do. She was very direct:

Our Library Board has lost all credibility. It’s not just a lapse in judgment. They’ve betrayed the children and community. They all need to be removed. We can no longer trust them.

She might have added that the Library Director – and probably others on the staff – also need to be shown the door. Normal people do not do these things to children. These people should not be employed by a public library where they can affect what is presented to youth.

Where will this lead?

Gillette is a small city, and the Commissioners clearly know several of these citizens fairly well. At least a few of the Commissioners seemed quite shocked. One of them grilled the Library Director a bit about why there are no “heterosexual” library promotions. But the majority of the Commission didn’t appear motivated to take any action – or even challenge the Library Director. At least not right now.

This is a city that voted 86% Republican in the recent election. But there’s obviously still a lot of work to do. And these Wyoming MassResistance parents and citizens are willing to do it! Their approach that day was refreshingly honest, direct, and fearless.

A huge fight has begun in a small Wyoming city. Parents and citizens vs. depraved library staff and public officials

Wyoming MassResistance is leading the charge!

After all these years of exposing, fighting, and stopping horrible “culture war” assaults by the Left on children, it’s not often that we’re at a loss for words. But this time a summary description won’t suffice - you just need to see the materials for yourself.

ALT TEXT 
The Campbell County Public Library branch in Gillette, Wyoming.

In our last post, we showed how local MassResistance activists in the town of Gillette, Wyoming, have paid for billboards to warn people about what’s in their public library.

ALT TEXT 
When people drive by the local Subway sandwich shop in Gillette, they see this!

That’s just a part of the very heated battle there (that has already seen some victories). Before reporting more on that, you need to see why these parents and citizens are so enraged – and why their MassResistance chapter has been growing.

Below are a few of the books in the children’s and teen's (also called “Young Adult”) sections of the Campbell County Public Library that parents have recently noticed. (Since a few of these books are X-rated, we’re providing links to pages with excerpts from the books rather than posting them on this page.)

This Book is Gay
CLASSIFICATION: Young Adult Nonfiction (on display in Teen room)

SUMMARY: This book is pornographic and truly obscene (meaning “designed to incite to lust or depravity” according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary). It promotes medically unsafe homosexual sexual practices and perversions and is filled with false information. All forms of “gay” and “lesbian” sex are endorsed and celebrated with graphic instructions for teenagers.

Read sample pages here. (CAUTION: obscene material.)

 

The V Word: True Stories about First-Time Sex
CLASSIFICATION: Young Adult Nonfiction (Teen room)

SUMMARY: This book promotes total sexual promiscuity for teenagers. It also strongly encourages rebellion against parents' moral values.

Read sample pages here. (CAUTION: obscene material.)

 

Transmission
CLASSIFICATION: Young Adult (in the Teen Room)

Summary: Girl "becomes" guy, has breast removal surgery and wants a beard (using large doses of male hormones). She goes back and forth desiring to identify as both sexes. This is a “how to transition (sex-change)” book for teens.

Read sample pages here. (CAUTION: obscene material.)

Are these books you would want any young person struggling through the teenage years to read?

This book is not “obscene” as such, but is meant to send a radical LGBT message to very young children.

Mary Wears What She Wants
CLASSIFICATION: Easy Reader (Kindergarten to First Grade)

SUMMARY: Introduces cross-dressing to young children.  Promotes defiance to parents in cross-dressing.

Read sample pages here.

Public libraries are supposed to be safe places for children and teenagers. But the Campbell County Library has become a very dangerous place. It appears to be run by sexually deviant people who have a strong interest in pushing that agenda to youth.

But why are these kinds of books even on the shelves? Even though Campbell County voted over 86% Republican in the last election and is very conservative, local public officials who control the library refuse to intervene. They are clearly more interested in getting along with the loud (and dysfunctional) Leftists than protecting the people they serve. Wyoming MassResistance is out to change that.

In our next post: We’ll show you what happened when the pro-family activists first stormed the County Commission meeting over this – and the reasoning that the Library Director gave at that meeting for bringing these books into the library and keeping them there!

Despotic ruling against father opposed to “transitioning” of son~Left-wing Texas judge imposes outrageous conditions against father opposed to 9-year-old son’s “transgender” push by ex-wife.

Jeffrey Younger is stripped of virtually all parental rights. Even ordered not to tell his son that he’s really a boy.

Judge puts boy under care of pro-LGBT psychologist who tells him that he’s a “girl.”

MassResistance interviews Jeffrey Younger (below) - with all the grisly details!

September 2, 2021
VIDEO: MassResistance interviews Jeffrey Younger detailing a despotic ruling against him.

In court hearings on July 3 and Aug. 4, 2021, Texas District Judge Mary Brown, a hardcore liberal, imposed unbelievably repressive orders and restrictions on Jeffrey Younger in his battle to stop the “gender transitioning” of his 9-year-old son. What this judge has ruled is truly frightening.

Starting over a hundred years ago with Lenin, the Left has understood that getting control of the judiciary is an important step toward forcing change on an unwilling society. Is this where America is headed? Can the transgender agenda on young children – that destroys their lives in so many ways – be stopped?

Jeffrey Younger is a father in Texas who is going through a nightmare. His ex-wife is persuading their 9-year-old son that he’s really a girl. She’s given him a girl’s name and dresses him in girl’s clothes. She had him enrolled in a dance studio as a girl. She has attempted to bring him to a “gender” clinic for medical “transitioning” procedures.

This has led to a vicious court custody battle that has been going on for the last few years. But similar to the horrible Rob Hoogland case in Canada, the government is out in force against Jeffrey Young.

Left-wing Texas district judges have ruled against him in bizarre and unusual ways. He has now been stripped of virtually all parental rights. He may only see his son in a few supervised visits each month (for which he must pay heavy fees) and may not even tell his son that he is actually a boy. In addition, the court has ordered the boy to be put under the care of a pro-LGBT psychologist – who “affirms” him as a girl.

Over the last year, our Texas MassResistance chapter has come to Jeff’s aid and worked hard on his behalf. We demonstrated outside the “gender clinic” in Dallas where the mother was about to send the boy. We helped protest the dance clinic where the mother had enrolled the boy as a girl – and the dance clinic decided to unenroll him. We lobbied hard in the Texas State House for bills that would stop this mutilation of children.

A disturbing but important interview. A few days after this latest ruling Jeff was interviewed by Arthur Schaper of MassResistance (see video above). It's a very chilling story. He goes through what has happened at these latest hearings, the grisly details of what these two rulings entail, the people involved, and what his next steps are. (He also has a funding page to help pay for his legal expenses.)

Some good news: After receiving months of pro-family pressure on this issue (including from Texas MassResistance) on Aug. 6 the Governor formally asked the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) to issue a determination whether “gender reassignment” surgery constitutes child abuse. On Aug. 11, the DFPS Commissioner issued a formal response, The Department concludes that it does constitute child abuse, punishable by fines and/or jail time. Furthermore, health professionals who do not report this can also face punishment. This could bring big changes to Texas and – as Jeff describes in his interview – it could possibly help mitigate his case.

Taliban cuts gay man into pieces to ‘show what they do with gay people’

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/08/taliban-cuts-gay-man-into-pieces-to-show-what-they-do-with-gay-people;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The Taliban has already sent clear messages on what it intends to do with uncovered women, and now it has sent another message on how it will treat gay men.

The penalty for homosexuality in Islam is death, so the Taliban is following Sharia, which is also implemented in several other Islamic countries. Under Islamic law:

“When a man mounts another man, the throne of God shakes,” and “Kill the one that is doing it and also kill the one that it is being done to.” (Abu Dawud 4462 and al-Tirmidhi 1456)

“If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death.” (Abu Dawud 4448)

“The Prophet cursed effeminate men (those men who are in the similitude (assume the manners of women) and those women who assume the manners of men, and he said, ‘Turn them out of your houses .’ The Prophet turned out such-and-such man, and ‘Umar turned out such-and-such woman.” (Sahih Bukhari 72:774)

“Taliban cut Afghan man’s body into pieces to ‘show what they do with gay people,’” by Lily Wakefield, Pink News, August 25, 2021:

A gay man in Afghanistan has described how the Taliban killed his boyfriend and “cut his body into pieces” to “show what they do with gay people”.

The 26-year-old, going by the pseudonym of “Gabir” to protect his identity, told the i that he and his boyfriend were sitting in a restaurant together in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, when the city was seized by the Taliban on 15 August.

They both rushed back to their respective homes, and soon Gabir was unable to get hold of his partner as his phone signal and internet connection began to fail.

He said: “At 5 or 6 o’clock, my brother told me something has happened, that ‘you should contact your friends’. When I call my friends, everyone’s phone is off.”

Tragically, Gabir finally discovered from a friend that his boyfriend, who was just 24 years old, had been tracked down by the Taliban and killed.

“Two cars came, with Taliban in it,” he said.

“They said, ‘Where is his home?’ and beat him so much. They took him away – nobody knows where – and then they kill him.

“Afterwards they said they brought the body [back] and cut his body into pieces to show the people that this is what we do with gay people.”

Gabir and his boyfriend had been together for eight months after meeting at university, and had been planning to leave Afghanistan to get married.

Following the young man’s horrific death, Gabir hasn’t even had time to grieve, as he is in hiding and fearing for his own life.

He recently received an anonymous call from someone who told him: “I know you are gay, before capturing Kabul we knew everything about you, you have three or four friends who are gay, you have a boyfriend.

“Once we settle here in Kabul we will not let you live. If we find you, we will kill you.”

Since then, Gabir has been on the run, but he said: “I’m 100 per cent sure I’m going to die. There is no hope for me.”…

Gay Afghan author Nemat Sadat recently told PinkNews that the Taliban will “weed out and exterminate” Afghanistan’s LGBT+ community: “They can either await a slow death or a quick one.”….

SANDIEGO, CA.: Confronting the library staff at Drag Queen Story Hour

San Diego MassResistance confronts library staff during hideous “Drag Queen Story Hour” presentation.

“You are exposing children to sexual deviancy. How can you sleep at night?” (See video of confrontation below.)

Event attracts enthusiastic LGBT “parents” –the young children seemed less interested.

August 18, 2021
ALT TEXT 
This "Drag Queen" reading to children at a San Diego Public Library event was even featured on the local TV news.

When you watch your tax dollars being used for deviant repulsive acts in your town, it makes you want to get up and do something. Especially if it’s happening in a local library that’s supposed to be a safe place for children – not a dangerous place with perverted, dysfunctional adults running the children’s programs.  

When the COVID shutdowns eased up in June, the San Diego public library system began a super-charged “LGBT Pride Month” promotion lasting over June and July, including homosexual-themed library cards. A main feature was a series of “Drag Queen Story Hour” events for young children – led by creepy cross-dressing men – that performed in all the branch libraries in the city.

ALT TEXT 
From the San Diego Library's "Drag Queen" promotional materials.

Everyone knew this wasn’t universally supported. The local CBS-TV’s news report also included clips from the 2019 MassResistance protests outside a “Drag Queen” event at the library in Chula Vista, a nearby San Diego suburb.

ALT TEXT 
The local CBS-TV report celebrated these two men performing for children ...

... and also showed a scene from a nearby MassResistance protest a few years ago.

So on July 20, 2021, when the “Drag Queen” event got to San Diego’s City Heights Library branch, some local San Diego MassResistance activists decided to take a stand. If members of the community didn’t do anything at all, how would that look?

Confronting the library staff

ALT TEXT 
Outside the City Heights Library in San Diego we made some noise and protested!

While the rest of the group protested just outside the front doors, one of them, Marilyn, walked in.

She was met by a library staffer and a security guard, who recognized her as one of the protesters and said, “We don’t want you to distract the other patrons.” Marilyn answered in a firm but calm voice: “What about the children who are being affected by all of this?”

ALT TEXT 
The library staffer (left) reacts to Marilyn's rebuke.

A large man wearing a dress walked up and said, “We’re asking you to leave.” Marilyn said: “You need to quit doing this. You need to stop holding these things …”

The library staffer cut her off and said, “I’m going to call the police right now!” Marilyn answered, “Go right ahead. We’ve talked to them before. That’s fine.” The staffer said, “Let’s just wait outside then while they come.” Marilyn decided to walk out with her. (The police were not called.)

While they were walking out, the staffer said to Marilyn, “I appreciate how much you care about the children.”

Marilyn answered, “Well, you don’t care about the children because you are allowing these events to take place and you’re subjecting them to sexually perverse lifestyles that are destroying their innocence.”

When they got outside Marilyn continued: “So how much do you care about the children – all of you who are aiding and abetting this?” she asked.

The staffer responded, “I’m not going to answer that question.”

Marilyn retorted “Of course you’re not because you’re complicit in destroying children’s innocence by exposing them to sexual deviancy, here in our public libraries, paid for with our tax dollars. And [pointing to the guards] you security guards are also complicit in it ... How can you sleep at night?”

Passing out Drag Queen materials to children

ALT TEXT 
The library staffer stationed two guards at the front door to make sure no normal people got in!

Outside, two guards stood at the library doors. Some other library staffers were there to pass out an LGBT packet (produced by the library) for the children as they came out the door when the event ended. Marilyn continued to admonish them. None of them would respond. But they clearly got the message!

A reaction from the Drag Queen event inside!

While the protests were going on outside, a friend of one of our San Diego MassResistance activists – who had not been aware of “Drag Queen Story Hour” events before this – decided to go in and watch it.

Here is what she told us afterward:

When I first learned about this, I couldn't believe anyone would knowingly bring their children to see and be read to by a person dressed in drag. It was so unbelievable to me, I simply had to see it with my own two eyes.

On July 17, 2021, I arrived at the library just before it started and went right in. It was held in the library’s courtyard. I happened to talk to what appeared to be a large, odd-looking man wearing a blue dress and deep red lipstick. He was obviously an organizer, setting up chairs, etc. He told me that this is “Pride Story Time” and the performer will arrive shortly.

ALT TEXT 
The man in the blue dress. The deep voice definitely gave it away.

There were approximately 20-30 people in the audience. Most were same-sex couples, and most, but not all, were with very young children.

Among the last people to arrive was a middle-aged blond woman with two older children, perhaps late elementary-school or early middle-school aged. As she passed by me, she said to the kids accompanying her, "Isn't this exciting? This is going to be great!" The kids didn't reply. They didn't appear to be as interested in the event as she clearly was.

The man in the blue dress then escorted the performer into the courtyard and on to the stage area. I could hardly believe my eyes. What I saw was a very tall, thin, black man wearing a woman’s style long-haired black wig, heavy garish make-up, a tight-fitting bathing suit-like pair of bottoms and a flamboyant, sequined, peacock dress. I've never seen anything as hideous as this in real life, only in movies. As he walked in, the audience cheered loudly.

ALT TEXT 
Marilyn got this shot of the "Drag Queen" in his thong-style underwear, just before he put on his peacock-style dress and cape with flowing skirt pieces.

He turned on some loud dance music and proceeded to do a dance more appropriate for a night club.  He motioned for the audience to clap in time with the music. At one point, he kneeled on the floor while leaning back with his head and body. He then thrust his hips in time with the music while the audience clapped and cheered. I found it pretty disgusting and totally inappropriate for young children, yet the adults and children in the audience were cheering and clapping.

After dancing, he sat in a chair and read some children’s books aloud. Rather than overtly “homosexual” or “transgender,” the books all seemed to have a subliminal LGBT message for the children to absorb. For example, the second book he read, A Quokka Life: Love Makes a Family, teaches young children about surrogate parenting – a necessary situation among homosexuals. Is that a good topic for very young children? The activists don’t care about that.

While the last book was still being read, the manager of the library walked by me and we talked for a bit. She explained how they are proud to host events like this in support of PRIDE for the surrounding communities, and she didn't understand or appreciate the protest going on outside. She added that this type of event rotates between various libraries in San Diego.

After the performer finished reading the last book, the event proceeded to photo opportunities for members of the audience (including the little children) with the performer. Many photographs were taken and the audience slowly dispersed.

As we walked out the door, the library manager and her assistant were handing out LGBT souvenir bags created by library personnel. The library manager even said to me, "Here, take two!"

ALT TEXT 
This is the LGBTQ kit handed out to the children after the Drag Queen show. The insert said, "This kit was created with love by library staff, we hope you enjoy your PRIDE activities." In other words, more tax dollars at work against you.
ALT TEXT 
Preparing to hand out the kits outside the library.

Since then, the image of this ghastly man, his sexualized dancing, and then reading children’s books to children keeps coming back to me. It’s immensely disturbing. And my tax dollars were paying for it.

ALT TEXT 
... And handing them out as the audience leaves.

Final thoughts

Even though we didn’t “stop” this one, it’s very important that the people running these programs be directly confronted by community members. As the promotional news reports show, they are not only comfortable with it, they’re enthusiastic about it. They have no interest in the destructive effects this has on children. (And as we’ve seen across the country, the local authorities rarely find anything wrong with this, either.)

But a dose of cold water – especially given in a calm but very firm manner – has an interesting psychological effect. On a certain level, it almost always jars them. They’re used to living in a bubble where everyone talks and thinks the same way. We come and break that bubble!

And moreover, promoting deviancy and the early sexualization of a minor child is abuse. All the pro-family warnings about so-called “LGBT parenting” are being substantiated by programs like this.

Courageous Teacher BLASTS Notorious Loudon County School Board Over Trans and CRT Policies. Then She Refuses to Play Along

BY VICTORIA TAFT

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/victoria-taft/2021/08/11/courageous-teacher-blasts-notorious-loudon-county-school-board-over-trans-and-crt-policies-then-she-refuses-to-play-along-n1468681;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

A fifth-grade teacher went before the notorious Loudon County school board on Tuesday night to denounce proposed transgender policies and other “equity” issues such as Critical Race Theory (CRT), and did something unexpected: she quit.

The Loudon County, Virginia school board meetings have become notorious not because angry parents have shown up in droves to forcefully denounce the racially divisive and discriminatory CRT “equity” agenda. No, they’re not notorious because the school board cut off a public viewing area to spite parents. They’re notorious because the board is like that toddler who believes that if he juts out an arm, turns his head, and closes his eyes he doesn’t have to listen to you.

Tuesday night, Laura Morris, who says she’s taught for ten years, went before the board and elucidated the reasons why she differed with the board on its “equity” policies and its proposed transgender policies.

Morris pointed to materials sent to all teachers stating that Christian, white women were overly represented in the teacher corps in Loudon County and “this has to change.”

“Within the last year, I was in one of my so-called equity trainings that White, Christian, able-bodied females currently have the power in our schools and ‘this has to change,’” teacher Laura Morris said during the public comment period of the board meeting.

“Clearly, you’ve made your point. You no longer value me or many other teachers you’ve employed in this county. So since my contract outlines the power that you have over my employment in Loudoun County Public Schools, I thought it necessary to resign in front of you.”

And so she did.

“School board, I quit. I quit your policies, I quit your trainings and I quit being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas on our most vulnerable constituents — the children,” she said. “I will find employment elsewhere.”

Then she urged parents to take their children out of public school and “flood the private schools.”

NBC Washington reported that the transgender policies include everything from pronouns the sports teams to bathroom access.

Proposed Policy 8040 on the rights of transgender and gender-expansive students would affect staff use of transgender students’ names and pronouns; transgender students’ access to sports, restrooms and locker rooms; and training for school mental health professionals.

The policy became national news after elementary school gym teacher Tanner Cross testified in May that he would not follow the policy because he believed it would harm children and violate his religious beliefs.

The school district placed Cross on paid administrative leave. A District Court judge ruled that Cross must be reinstated, citing his rights to speech and religious liberty. The school board is appealing the ruling.

Here’s the video of her resigning.

Fox reported on her resignation Wednesday:

Parents and concerned citizens, such as teachers, had to take a number and wait to be called before they could speak alone before the board members.

After four hours of testimony, the board chose to postpone the vote until later when there weren’t as many parents waiting outside to speak.

Parents in Loudon County, whose voices haven’t mattered to the school board, may wish to use their passion to induce the state to pass school choice legislation. This allows parents to use the money otherwise given to state-sponsored schools and use the money to send their children elsewhere.

Perhaps after such a move school districts would have to listen to parents.

Use that Joe Biden government cheese money and put a down payment on a private school near you.

Get out while you can.

Virginia Teacher Resigns After Ordered To Snitch on Dissenters of Woke Agenda

'Clearly, you've made your point. You no longer value me or many other teachers you've employed in this county.'

BY ADAN SALAZAR

SEE: https://www.infowars.com/posts/watch-virginia-teacher-resigns-after-ordered-to-snitch-on-dissenters-of-woke-agenda/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Fifth-grade Loudon County, Virginia, teacher Laura Morris emotionally announced her resignation during a school board meeting Tuesday, citing the district’s “woke” policy changes.

“I have struggled with the idea of returning to school knowing that I’ll be working yet again with the school division that, despite its shiny tech and flashy salary, promotes political ideologies that do not square with who I am as a believer in Christ,” Morris stated.

Morris acknowledged how the school board locked parents out of the meeting leaving them outside in the rain, as documented by journalist Justine Brooke Murray, and recalled how the superintendent encouraged teachers to snitch on each other.

“Emails sent by the superintendent last year [reminded] me that a dissenting opinion is not allowed even to be spoken in my personal life, going so far as to send a form to my colleagues and I encouraging us to fill it out if we hear one another speaking against the controversial policies being promoted by this school board and adopted in this county.”

According to updated school policy, teachers will be disciplined if they use the wrong pronouns when addressing students, “However, they ARE permitted to hide a child’s gender dysmorphia from their own parents,” reports Murray.

Morris says “equity training” teaching her that White, Christian females are overrated has also signaled to her that the school district does not value her.

“Within the last year, I was in one of my so-called equity training that White, Christian, able-bodied females currently have the power in our schools and ‘this has to change.’”

Morris says she’s forced to resign due to the new policies.

“Clearly, you’ve made your point. You no longer value me or many other teachers you’ve employed in this county. So since my contract outlines the power that you have over my employment in Loudoun County Public Schools, I thought it necessary to resign in front of you.”

“School board, I quit,” she stated. “I quit your policies, I quit your training, and I quit being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas to our most vulnerable constituents – children.”

Attempt to terrorize local parents whom we’re helping to fight back.

Board ignores normal rules of meeting procedure to accommodate this.

Part 12 in a series. (See entire series here.)

August 9, 2021
ALT TEXT
This woman announced she is a "member of the LGBT community"; and that "MassResistance is a hate group." She said that instead of complaining about pornographic books in school, parents should educate themselves by listening to LGBT podcasts.

In an unbelievable move, the Ludlow, MA School Board devoted its July 20, 2021 meeting to staging a public attack on MassResistance. The Board moved the meeting venue to the high school auditorium and collaborated with the local teachers' union to bring in radical school staff and unhinged local LGBT activists to “testify.” It was a hideous presentation of vitriol with a cascade of unabashed lies.

They are incensed that MassResistance is successfully helping parents organize and stand up to the outrages in Ludlow’s Baird Middle School.

As we’ve reported, starting in 2019 school officials and staff in the middle school began pushing lurid pornographic and homosexual-themed books in the classrooms and library. Late last year, teachers and counselors began coaching children that they might be “transgender” and grooming them to take on opposite-sex identities – without the parents’ knowledge.

MassResistance helped parents organize and get the word out. After intense community pressure, the Superintendent and middle school librarian both resigned. The obvious purpose of this meeting was to terrorize the parents who have been complaining.

ALT TEXT 
School Board Chairman Michael Kelliher's social media post about the meeting. ("LHS" is Ludlow High School.)

We have never seen a School Board anywhere do anything this unprofessional and unethical. The intent to demonize the parents was broadcast on social media, and it was clearly organized by the teachers' union, which is fiercely anti-parent.

The types of “testimony” that day included:

  • Childish name-calling. The Left adopted the concept of a “hate group” to demonize their opponents. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a far-left extremist group which has been discredited across the political spectrum, labels every major conservative pro-family group in America (including MassResistance) as a “hate group,” using lies and hysteria. The SPLC has inspired violence, and has been forced to pay millions in defamation lawsuits. The Ludlow school staff knows this, but has no other way of defending what they do to children, so they parrot that group’s repulsive message.
  • Outright lies about the law. Among other things, the staff claims that Massachusetts law requires that they do these things to children. There are no such laws. They also misrepresent the non-mandatory “guidance” documents from the Department of Education to attempt to justify their actions.
  • “Parents are backwards and stupid.” They are not shy about saying that they’re the ones who know best how to raise other people’s children when it comes to sexuality, homosexuality, and transgenderism.
  • Angry, illogical arguments. For example, they say that if parents oppose their children being indoctrinated into LGBT ideology, this means that the parents are (1) harming their own kids and (2) doing violence to the “LGBT community.”

Outside: School officials set up police intimidation

In order to send the absurd message that conservative parents who might come were likely to be violent, the School Board had several police officers (including State Police) as well as barricades at the outside doors to the school auditorium.

ALT TEXT 
Attempting to frighten the community: Outside the doors to the school auditorium, the School Board stationed barricades, police officers, and even state police.

Instead, a small group of Catholics (Ludlow is largely Catholic) stood in a circle nearby in the parking lot praying the Rosary.

ALT TEXT 
A few local Catholics prayed the Rosary in the parking lot near the entrance to the auditorium.

A group of the parents decided to show that they were not intimidated, and came to the meeting. They sat together in the back of the auditorium. Only one parent from the group addressed the Board – and he spoke first.

ALT TEXT 
The parents came in and sat together in the back center rows of the auditorium.

The Chairman opens up the meeting to testimony

After dealing with some school department business, the Board Chairman, Michael Kelliher announced the start of the public comments.

ALT TEXT 
Kelliher, third from left in plaid shirt, is a local dentist who is now in his glory as a pompous School Board chairman.

School committees and other government bodies across the country require people who speak to give their names and state where they live. But Kelliher said that’s not required here. Thus, several only gave their first names. He also said that speakers must address their comments to the chairman.  But he let the leftists ignore that rule. They were allowed to turn around and direct their rants at the parents in the back of the room.

In case any parents decided to complain about the recent firing of the parent-friendly teacher, Kelliher cited “Mass. General Law Ch. 39 Sec. 23b” which he said forbids any discussion of personnel matters during School Board meetings. But don’t try to look up that law. It was repealed in 2009! That doesn’t matter to Kelliher.

The speakers

Here are some of the speakers that evening and what they had to say:

ALT TEXT 
Stephen Foote, father of two middle school children targeted by the staff for "transgender" grooming.

The first speaker – the only one from the Ludlow parents group – was Stephen Foote. Stephen is the father of the 11-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son were groomed by the school staff to be “transgender” – and the school kept this information from him and their mother. Stephen gave a short but powerful speech about his disgust for the Ludlow Schools and the school officials, and what they did to his children. At the end he announced to them “you will be sued.” (More on that coming up!)

ALT TEXT

This was “Sam Valentine” who told the School Board, “I’m a drag performer.” Sam then warned the Board that MassResistance is probably a Catholic group because of “the people outside saying the Rosary." He said that Catholics are “hypocritical,” adding “I’m sure you all had to walk by them.”

ALT TEXT

This woman said that “the hate group MassResistance” has brought “bigotry and homophobia” into the community. She said that the children’s books that parents say are pornographic are simply depicting normal LGBT relationships for children. She said that the parents who are complaining “don’t really care about their kids – they’re just trying to push their anti-LGBT agenda onto our community.”
She is “disgusted” that MassResistance is helping Stephen Foote because he and the mother are “hating on [their] children just for having the courage to be who they are.”

ALT TEXT

These two are the co-presidents of the Ludlow teachers’ union. They thanked all the teachers' union members “from all the surrounding communities” who came today. Then they turned to face the parents in the back of the room, and delivered a ridiculously dishonest rant:

ALT TEXT

They accused the parents of “attacking educators” and “supporting bigotry and intolerance.” They said, “We are witnessing destructive efforts to manufacture controversy where none exists. Educators are here to remind the community that no policies have been violated. No harm to students have occurred, and no concerns have gone unaddressed.”

Here’s how they described the complaints: “We have seen hateful and homophobic assaults bring harm to students and educators. Fear and ignorance have no place in our schools.”

ALT TEXT

This man made the bizarre statement that MassResistance is attempting to legalize “a process that attempts to turn your gay kids straight using electric shocks to the genitals, ice pick lobotomies, and chemical castration.” That is an incredible lie that he simply made up.

ALT TEXT

He then turned and addressed the parents. He said that parents being offended by children’s books of homosexual kissing made it so their kids “are afraid of you and what you can do to them.” He added that there is also nothing wrong with giving kids books about rape, because: “Your Bible also depicts rape.” He then said to the parents, “Your children are smarter than you. The world has moved on from your backwards beliefs as it did from the bigotry of yesterday. Grow up. Your kids already have.”

ALT TEXT

This woman identified herself as a lesbian teacher at Ludlow High School. She said that children have “a right” to homosexual library resources and that, “You have the right to be called by your name and pronouns that reflect your truth. The laws in Massachusetts guarantee this right and the School Committee cannot take that away.”

ALT TEXT

She turned and said to the parents, “To the group of people who are part of MassResistance: It is against the law for us to carry out most of your demands. We will not, and we cannot. So I beg of you to take your complaints and concerns to the State House. Coming to the School Committee will do nothing to accomplish anything here. We are doing our job.”

That is all a lie. There are no such laws in Massachusetts. Even the non-mandatory “guidance” is fairly vague on these issues.

ALT TEXT

This man got up and stated, “MassResistance is a terrorist group.“ He said the reason we’re a terrorist group is that when he emailed us we wouldn’t take the time to explain all of our positions. He then gave another ridiculous warning: that if parents are allowed to criticize the homosexuality and transgenderism in the middle school, that will soon lead to mistreating blacks and disabled children in the school.

A School Board member chimes in

After the LGBT speakers finished coming up, Board Member Chip Harrington decided to add some final words of his own.

ALT TEXT 
Board member Chip Harrington, center, bashes MassResistance.

It’s hard to tell whether Harrington is incredibly uninformed or just stupid (though we lean toward the latter). He started off by saying that the “anti-LGBT” hysteria in Ludlow was started by the parents on social media. In fact, it was all done by the Left – accusing the parents of that.

Harrington made a convoluted argument about parental rights – that parents should be able to see the pornographic books in the middle school, but they need to adhere to the “process” for keeping them from their children – a process that guarantees that nothing will change.

He then said, “MassResistance is a horrible organization, and I want nothing to do with it.” His reason is that he had received a phone call from our coordinator Arthur Schaper, who lives in California. (Arthur wanted Harrington to meet with the parents.) Harrington loudly complained that MassResistance is obviously an out-of-state group - and said its leader has never even been to western Massachusetts. 

In fact, our website clearly says that MassResistance is based in Waltham, Mass., just down the road from Ludlow. And the group’s leader, Brian Camenker, has been to western Massachusetts (including Ludlow) many times. Everybody knows that. (And besides, the LGBT and Planned Parenthood groups that the school works with are based out of state!)

Final thoughts

When all was said and done, this School Board meeting had the opposite effect from what was intended. The parents are more energized than ever! This meeting opened their eyes even more.

First, it became very clear that the opponents are a small group compared to the overall Ludlow community, which is quite conservative.

Second, the opponents showed that they have no rational arguments and do not care at all about the actual welfare of the children. Instead, they revealed themselves to be angry, self-righteous (and somewhat dysfunctional) people devoted to a radical ideology – who hate those who disagree with them.

And third, the parents' opponents (including School Board members) are shamelessly willing to twist the truth and tell outright lies. They no longer have any credibility. The aura has been severely shattered.

Next: The lawsuits.

RHODE ISLAND: Gigantic Teachers’ Union Sues Mom for Asking What the Local Public School Is Teaching Her Daughter

BY BRYAN PRESTON

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/bryan-preston/2021/08/05/gigantic-teachers-union-sues-mom-for-asking-what-the-local-public-school-is-teaching-her-daughter-n1467245;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

There was a time when parental involvement in our kids’ education was seen as a good thing that all parents should do. We were invited to meet our kids’ teachers and even participated in class once or twice a week. This was all part of making sure our kids obtained the education our tax dollars paid for.

The COVID pandemic and the moral panic following George Floyd’s death destroyed all of that. Unionized teachers advocated for closing schools and keeping them closed and started sneaking in critical race theory teachings at every level during online classes. When parents noticed and asked, they tended to get a run-around or worse. In Loudon County, Virginia, public school administrators and teachers formed a cabal to hunt down and smear parents who questioned them.

Rhode Island mom Nicole Solas wanted to know what her daughter was being taught in kindergarten. So she asked the school for copies of the curriculum. She is entitled to that, as a parent and as a taxpayer. Public school curricula are public documents.

Instead of accommodating her, the school fought her. That naturally raised her suspicions, so she asked for more and more, about 200 public information requests, and got more and more of a runaround from the school. The school even tried to stick her with a bill for $74,000 as a way of making her go away.

Now the all-powerful National Education Association-Rhode Island has sued Solas. She was served with the lawsuit this week. The NEA is the largest teachers’ union in the United States, and it backs using public schools to teach critical race theory. It proudly states that its president, Becky Pringle, is a “fierce social justice warrior and defender of educator rights.” NEA’s bio of Pringle doesn’t mention parents at all.

The NEA’s complaint is available here. The Goldwater Institute is representing Solas.

Boiled down, the gigantic union is begging the court to silence the mom, Nicole Solas, from asking questions about her child’s education. They want the court to enable public school administrators to hide documents that may be subject to FOIA laws (called APRA in Rhode Island, for the Access to Public Records Act). For instance:

NEA

I’ve dealt with public records from both sides, as a vigilante journalist and as a state agency employee, though not under Rhode Island’s APRA. Why is someone writing a “private” email or document to a public body? Why would a member of the NEA, in particular, do this? Its members are almost all public employees, making their electronic communications largely public information when a public body such as a school is also involved. Those communications may not be private at all. It can depend on the content and purpose of the communication or document. Typically a state’s attorney general is asked to weigh in on questions regarding documents such as these. NEA-RI seems to have chosen to use an intimidating lawsuit instead. Rhode Island’s attorney general is a Democrat, Peter Neronha. Depending on how APRA works, appealing to him rather than filing a lawsuit may have been the NEA’s smarter play.

Legal Insurrection has followed Solas’ case from the beginning. Law professor William Jacobsen says:

My initial take is that this smells collusive. South Kingstown doesn’t want to produce records and the union is helping them out. The lawsuit purports to prevent disclosure of “private” information, but the public records laws and Solas’ requests pursuant to those laws only require the district to produce public records. The district has been very aggressive in asserting exemptions and redacting documents, so the union’s concern and rush to court seems peculiar, at best.

It’s worth noting that the South Kingstown NEA previously targeted Solas, as we reported, by holding a special membership meeting singling her out as a danger.

Solas has been on the union’s radar very much as a target. She seems to have caught public employees violating the state’s open meetings law.

Now the monstrous teachers’ union is suing her.

Ludlow Superintendent resigns after months of pressure. School Board members join him in vicious public attacks on parents.

An unbelievable display: Using all the leftist talking points to demean and demonize parents during consecutive School Board meetings - after complaints about radical agenda in middle school.

See two video clips below.

Part 10 in a series. (See entire series here.)

August 1, 2021
ALT TEXT 
The ringleaders against parents (left to right): Superintendent Todd Gazda, Board Chairman Michael Kelliher, "Chip" Harrington.
ALT TEXT 
Board members Jeffrey Lang, Charles Mullin, Sarah Bowler.

The vitriol that school officials unleash against parents who hold traditional values is truly chilling. But it is extremely common, though rarely displayed in public.

At the May 25, 2021 Ludlow, Mass. School Board meeting, Superintendent Todd Gazda announced his resignation. This followed more than a year of pressure and outrage from parents and members of the local community over a toxic agenda in the middle school. The resignation came less than a week after the Superintendent and Principal fired Bonnie, an outspoken teacher who supported the parents.

At both that School Board meeting and the following meeting two weeks later, Gazda and Board members publicly attacked, demeaned, and demonized the parents, community members, and even a student who had spoken out. Normal meeting procedures were blatantly set aside, allowing for these shocking attacks.

Background: Pushing a toxic agenda on middle school children

The outrages started in late 2019 when lurid pornographic books for teenagers appeared in the school library and classrooms of Baird Middle School in Ludlow, Mass. The books had been brought in by the school librarian, a strange cross-dressing woman.

In late 2020, the situation got much worse. Teachers and guidance counselors at Baird took advantage of the COVID disruption to introduce radical “transgender” ideas to children. They persuaded children as young as 11 that they were “transgender” – and the school staff purposely kept this from the children’s parents.

Bonnie, a Social Studies teacher, was upset at what she saw and raised the alarm in February 2021. Parents and even some teachers were shocked and demanded the books be removed. But the school officials refused to take any action. Then, as the word got out in the community, the pressure led to the librarian’s resignation in early 2021.

MassResistance helped parents inform the larger community through a flyer, and people in Ludlow were livid at the school officials. In May, the Superintendent and Principal retaliated against Bonnie by firing her. They had to concoct phony charges, since she had a spotless 20-year record as a teacher.

School Board disallows direct public comment at meetings

During the COVID shutdowns, most School Boards and other government bodies around the world held their meetings online via Zoom. Members of the public would still be able to speak directly to the school officials during the public comments part of online meetings.

But the Ludlow School Board did not want to hear from angry parents. So instead of using Zoom, they held their Board meetings in their regular meeting room (wearing their masks). But they did not allow the public into the meetings; the Board met before an empty room! As before, the meetings were broadcast on cable-TV and the videos were posted later.

If Ludlow citizens wanted to register comments, they had to email them beforehand. The Superintendent would decide which emails would be read aloud during the meeting. This outrageous restriction – not being able to address their officials in person – only added to the anger of the parents.

Changing meeting procedures to lash out at parents

With the news that the librarian had quit and the Superintendent was about to announce his resignation, the School Board was extremely angry at the parents and wanted to lash back publicly.

So, for their May 25 and June 8 meetings, the School Board decided to deviate even further from normal meeting procedures. Usually, School Boards just listen to the public comments without replying. But now, if there were emailed comments from critics of the middle school situation, the Superintendent and/or Board members would prepare a “rebuttal” beforehand (attacking that person’s remarks) and read it out loud. We have never seen that done before anywhere. It was shameful, childish, and simply vindictive.

At the May 25, 2021 School Board meeting: Superintendent’s resignation and angry attack

VIDEO: Clip from 5/25/21 Ludlow School Board meeting (6 min 12 sec)

Superintendent Todd Gazda started off by formally announcing his resignation, adding that he had accepted a job with a local non-profit organization. (Usually, Superintendents leave to take a job with a bigger school system – and a higher salary. We’ve never seen one leave to work for a non-profit.) With accumulated vacation, his last day would be June 17, he said.

Then, during “citizen participation,” the Board read aloud one email. It was from Alex, a 10th-grade student at Ludlow High School, who (like many parents) was outraged at the abuses of children at the middle school and particularly Bonnie’s firing for exposing it. He pointed out that parental rights were being disregarded.

Alex said that staff members were pushing extreme ideas to children 11-14 years old. “This agenda has been trying to convince them to change who they are, change their sexuality and gender at an age that many kids don’t fully understand either,” he wrote. “The school committee ignores the concerns of the parents. You ignore us. You won’t talk to us.”

He ended: “So I ask, who will finally listen to the parents of this district? When will this be fixed? When can we have a discussion about this? Or will you just continue to ignore the people in this town who should matter the most to this committee?”

Right after Alex’s email was read, the School Board Chairman, Michael Kelleher, blurted out, “Most of that’s just baloney.”

Then Superintendent Gazda read aloud his prepared “rebuttal” to Alex’s letter. It was a shrill, angry rant that largely repeated the LGBT movement’s talking points.

Gazda stated that the issues Alex was complaining about – sexual books, pushing transgenderism on children without telling parents, etc. – are really about “inclusion” and “making schools safe.” These help children to “be free to be themselves.” Rather than stop these programs, he said, “we do not do enough … and we need to do more.”

He made the disingenuous claim that this is “in compliance with the laws and regulations of our state and the guidance of the Department of Education (DOE).” (MassResistance is not aware of any Mass. state law or regulation that requires this, and he grossly misrepresented the DOE “guidance.”)

He stated that such complaints amounted to “intolerance of LGBTQ individuals” and were in fact “thinly veiled behind a camouflage of parental rights” and half-truths, misrepresentations, and false accusations. (In other words, the parents were lying.)

He claimed that the schools are the true “safe place” for students – not their homes with their parents. He said this controversy is about supporting children’s true “identity” (i.e., homosexual or transgender) and that the school supplies “caring adults” where students can discuss “problems they might have.” He said, “For many students school is their only safe place, and that safety evaporates when they leave the confines of our buildings.”

Gazda said that the middle school will absolutely continue to help the children “express who they are” despite parents’ wishes to the contrary.

With that, the Chairman adjourned the meeting. But there was much more to come at the next meeting.

The June 8 School Board meeting: more vile attacks on parents

VIDEO: Clip from 6/8/21 Ludlow School Board meeting (10 min 13 sec)

On June 8, 2021, the Superintendent attended his last School Board meeting.

In the “public comments” section, the Board again read aloud just one email. It was sent by a Ludlow father and mother of middle school children, and was signed by several other Ludlow parents.

The letter stated seven demands that the parents have regarding the middle school:

  1. Stop promotion of transgender and homosexual ideas to middle school children.
  2. Remove all destructive transgender and homosexual materials from the middle school library and classrooms.
  3. Establish a book review committee with parents, which would include library books, school websites. and textbooks.
  4. Stop retribution against teachers who expose these abuses to parents.
  5. Stop the hostility, intimidation, and harassment of parents who complain about these abuses.
  6. Instruct the Superintendent and school staff not to attack, shame, or demean parents and residents in the community because they criticize decisions by the School Board or school staff.
  7. Establish a policy that requires use of students’ given names and actual pronouns. We want all students treated with proper respect and dignity, with no attempt at coercion or manipulation.

These “demands” express normal and obvious sentiments parents hold for their middle school children. But they prompted a nearly hysterical reaction against these parents from the Superintendent and Board members.

School Board Chairman Michael Kelliher started by reading aloud his prepared reply - a nasty hate-filled rant, using numerous time-worn LGBT talking points. First, he repeated the claim that what the school did is supported by “state and federal law,” but he didn’t identify which laws.

He then said that it was just a “small group of vocal parents” who were attacking books in the library and were now opposing “the inclusive policies of the Ludlow Public Schools.”  He said that “the staff are simply doing their jobs” being “welcoming and supporting” to the children.

Kelliher said the Ludlow parents are actually under the spell of “outside groups” including MassResistance and which are “recruiting members” in Ludlow. (Of course, he ignores the fact that the entire LGBT agenda in Ludlow is fueled by outside groups, and earlier this year the American Library Association became very active pushing the sexual agenda in the town’s schools.)

Whenever liberals have no substantive argument, they call the other side “bigots” or “haters.” So it was no surprise that Kelliher called MassResistance a “hate group,” mentioning our opposition to the LGBT agenda and what he called “marriage equality.” His name-calling only reveals his own childish anger.

Kelliher ended by making the ridiculous charge that it is “MassResistance [that] is trying to change people’s identities, not the school staff.” He said that our efforts to protect children constitute “hateful rhetoric” and that we are creating “divisive battles” in Ludlow.

Then the Superintendent read his prepared rebuttal to the parents’ letter. It was mostly a repeat of the absurd points he’d made at the previous meeting. But he added:

Myself [sic] and other members of our Ludlow staff have been called evil, sick, twisted, and deviant. We have been accused of grooming students, implying we are pedophiles – for supporting an inclusive environment in our schools where all students can feel safe and supported.

Harassing phone calls have been made to our personal home phones and cell phones all in a pathetic attempt to intimidate and harass.

Actually, the phone calls were attempts by parents to set up meetings. The school officials had ignored the emails and calls to their offices. However, the terms “evil, sick, twisted, and deviant” seem appropriate in this perverse situation.

Gazda ended by characterizing the parents’ complaints as “prejudice and bigotry.”

Then Board Member James “Chip” Harrington spoke up. While the previous officials made remarks that were hateful and offensive, Harrington’s were just plain stupid:

I am all in favor of giving parents the right to decide how they’re going to raise their children. But if they’re going to reach in and tell other parents how to raise their children because it’s not in line with how they feel, then shame on them. You raise your kid how you want. But don’t start dictating to other parents how they should raise their kids.

This is exactly the opposite of what’s really going on. The parents have no interest in how others raise their kids. They simply want their own children left alone by school personnel. It’s a little frightening that Ludlow trusts someone as dense as Harrington to decide on school policies.

And he didn’t stop there. Harrington ended by saying that the parents’ letter is “inaccurate” because “there already is a process in place” to decide these issues. Yes, that’s technically true. But it’s a phony process where a bogus “committee” of left-wing faculty members is created to make a decision, and it always rules against the parents.

This is what the parents are up against!

Final reflection

You need to watch the two videos above (especially the second one) to appreciate how unbelievably offensive and repulsive these officials are. The three who did not comment were silent because they had nothing to add – not because they disagreed in any way.

Regular people – especially conservatives – make the same mistake across the country. They assume that these kinds of school officials and School Board members are basically like the rest of us, but simply “misguided” and can be reasoned with. Without exception, our experience has been the opposite.

These people are not normal. Normal people do not do repugnant and immoral things that can cause immeasurable emotional and psychological harm to other people’s children. Normal people do not lash out with this kind of unhinged hostility, hate, lies, and anger when challenged on it by constituents. The education system attracts some very, very bad people. We need to understand that and act accordingly.

More to come!

Minnesota Fourth-graders Told to Keep Survey With Questions About Sexuality a Secret From Parents

BY C. MITCHELL SHAW

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/minnesota-fourth-graders-told-to-keep-survey-with-questions-about-sexuality-a-secret-from-parents/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

According to a Minnesota fourth-grader and her parents, she was part of a class-time “equity survey” by the Equity Alliance of Minnesota. The survey was loaded with questions about CRT, racial equity, and gender equity. The girl says her class was told by their teacher that they were not allowed to skip questions, even if they did not understand them — and they were not allowed to tell their parents about the questions.

The young girl, Hayley Yasgar, spoke before the Sartell-St. Stephen School Board and told them she felt “very nervous and uncomfortable” when her teacher told her class they could not tell their parents about the questions on the survey. Hayley was a fourth-grader at Riverview Intermediate school in Sartell, Minnesota, last year when the survey was administered to her class. Sartell, a major suburb of St. Cloud, is about an hour northwest of Minneapolis.

Hayley told the school board, “During distance learning [due to the COVID lockdowns of schools] I was asked to read the equity survey. My teacher said that I could not skip any questions even when I didn’t understand them.”

She went on to say that one question asked the students what “gender” they identify as. Here is that actual question from the survey: “Do you currently identify yourself as female, male, transgender (transgender people have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from their assigned sex. For example, they were born male but now identify as female), or something else?”

Hayley told the school board, “I was very confused, along with a lot of other classmates. A boy in my class asked my teacher if his mom could explain the question to him because even after the teacher explained it, he still didn’t understand it.”

This writer will take a leap and surmise that the boy, along with Hayley and “a lot of other classmates” did not understand the question because the question is outside the boundaries of sanity and does not follow any reason or logic at all. Kids who have not been indoctrinated in the insanity of “gender fluidity” cannot be expected to even pretend to understand something so far removed from reality. That question reads like, “If it takes a man and a half a day and a half to dig a hole and a half, how long would it take a monkey with a wooden leg to kick the seeds out of a dill pickle?” Imagine that being the question and a fourth-grader answering, “Blue, because ice cream doesn’t have any bones shaped like pancakes.”

That is a fair comparison because to answer the question is to accept it. So all answers — no matter how insane — are equally correct. Remember, students were forbidden from skipping a question even if they did not understand it. This necessarily leads to a situation where the answers do not really represent anything at all. Data derived from students who did not even understand the survey can be interpreted any way the Equity Alliance chooses.

As bad as it is that children who have likely never considered sexual inclinations are even being asked such insane and subversive questions, what happened next is worse. Not only could the students not skip the questions they did not understand, but when Hayley’s classmate asked if his mother could explain the question to him, the teacher told the class that they were not allowed to tell their parents anything about the questions.

“My teacher told him that he was not allowed to ask his mom and that we could not repeat any of the questions to our parents,” Hayley told the school board, adding, “I want the school board to know how uncomfortable and nervous this made me. My mom always tells me I can tell her anything, but she also tells me I can trust my teachers, too.”

No wonder Hayley felt uncomfortable and nervous. She was suddenly — at the tender age of nine — presented with an evil choice. Trusting the teacher means keeping a secret from mom. But it was mom who told her she could trust the teacher. And mom also told her she could tell mom anything. In that one “uncomfortable and nervous” moment, poor Hayley must have felt damned if she did and damned if she didn’t. She said, “Being asked to hide this from my mom made me feel very uncomfortable like I was doing something wrong.”

Thank God Hayley’s better angels prevailed and she told her mom. Because this tactic — talking to kids about sexual subjects and telling them to keep it secret — is the same as that used by sexual predators. It is called “grooming.”

This writer imagines mom’s message about telling her anything is still intact, but the message about trusting teachers is undergoing some revision.

The lesson to take away from this is that government school officials may or may not have your child’s best interest at heart. And even if they do, their values may not coincide with yours. Since parents are the moral custodians of their children — tasked by God with the moral education of those children geared toward the salvation of their souls — abdicating that responsibility is not an option.

How corrupt is the education establishment? Stacy Monette, the Principal who fired Bonnie using phony reasons, was named "Middle School Principal of the Year" in 2020 by the Massachusetts School Administrators Association.

School officials pushing the “transgender” agenda in middle schools have become hostile and brutal toward those who refuse to comply.

A Massachusetts middle school teacher with a spotless 20-year record has been fired by the Principal and Superintendent. Her “crime” was informing the parents of a boy and girl what the school staff was doing to their children. In their zeal to fire her, they concocted a list of phony reasons that were easily debunked by the teacher’s attorney. But the firing still went forward.

In our earlier posts we described Bonnie, a principled Social Studies teacher at Baird Middle School in Ludlow, Mass. who prioritizes the well-being of students over any adult agendas.

In late 2019, Bonnie raised the alarm over the sexually graphic and explicit books being given to the children to read. Parents were angry and outraged. The school lashed back at Bonnie. The librarian filed a formal “harassment, bullying, discrimination, and hate crimes” complaint against her. It was completely phony – meant as intimidation – and went nowhere. And Bonnie refused to be intimidated.

Bonnie informs parents about their children’s “transgender” issues in school

Starting in late 2020, teachers and guidance counselors at Baird took advantage of the COVID disruption to introduce radical “transgender” ideas to children. They told children to decide their “preferred pronouns” and persuaded them that they might have been born in the “wrong” sex if they have certain interests. As children’s confusion grew, teachers would give them opposite-sex names to use in class. All of this was purposefully kept from their parents. Teachers were specifically told not to tell parents about this in at least one email that we’ve published.

In late February 2021, Bonnie saw that a sister and brother (ages 11 and 13) in the same family were now claiming to be “transgender” and seeking “gender transition.” She became very upset and informed the parents.

Both parents were extremely grateful to Bonnie – and were furious at the school officials for hiding this from them. The parents approached the Principal and (with the help of MassResistance) met with the Superintendent and demanded that this indoctrination be stopped immediately – and the people pushing it not be allowed near their children. (The school officials refused to answer regarding those demands.)

Harsh retribution against Bonnie

Bonnie did what any normal person would do. But the people running the Ludlow schools see the world completely differently – so they sought to stop Bonnie; it didn’t matter how. They took the necessary bureaucratic steps to fire her even though they had no legitimate reason for doing so. No matter. They concocted some phony reasons.

Bonnie is put on paid administrative leave. On March 19, 2021, Bonnie received a letter from the Principal notifying her that she is “being placed on paid administrative leave effective immediately for conduct unbecoming a teacher related to your inappropriate communications with the parents of a student.” The student is the 11-year-old girl described in our previous post [LINK] (though not her 13-year-old brother about whom Bonnie also informed the parents). This is the first step in the bureaucratic termination process.

Bonnie attends “investigative interview.” On March 25, an “interview as part of the investigation” took place. It included the Principal, a Ludlow school “compliance officer,” Bonnie, and a local pro-family lawyer who accompanied her. The teachers’ union would normally be expected to supply a lawyer for Bonnie, but they came up with various excuses why they could not. (At the meeting Bonnie also learned that the termination process was instigated by the Principal and the Superintendent.)

The Superintendent, Dr. Todd Gazda, made the decision, along with the Principal, to fire Bonnie. As we saw in early posts, he had no problem with the explicit sexual books in the school that Bonnie had complained about.

Bonnie gets a full-time attorney. After the March 25 meeting, Bonnie got a prominent attorney to take on her case. Frank McNamara is a former U.S. Attorney for the Massachusetts district and is very skilled in dealing with government cases.

Bonnie receives official “letter of intent to terminate,” listing the reasons. On April 16, the Principal sent Bonnie a letter stating “I intend to terminate your employment.” The letter listed several reasons for Bonnie’s termination.

Bonnie’s lawyer refutes all the “intent to terminate” reasons.

On May 17, Attorney McNamara sent a strongly worded letter to the school's attorney refuting every one of the reasons the Principal gave for Bonnie’s intended termination. This letter is very thorough and worth reading. Here are some of the highlights (with the page numbers in his letter):

Accusation: The principal states that Bonnie shared “sensitive confidential information” about a student’s expressed gender identity. Her action was in contradiction of the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) guidelines.

The truth: The DESE guidelines only apply to students ages 14 years or older. (Page 4.) The student was 11 years old.

Accusation: Bonnie’s action was against the direction of the Guidance Counselor.

The truth: The Ludlow Public Schools have never written or communicated any policy or requirement for Guidance Counselor approval of parent-teacher communications. Moreover, the American School Counselors Association (ASCA) has published Ethical Standards for School Counselors that advise that in these decisions, the rights of parents are the “guiding voice in their children’s lives.” (p. 6)

Accusation: Bonnie’s action was against the wishes of the student.

The truth: Records show that on December 15, 2020, the student met with Bonnie to discuss her gender identity issues. (p. 5). She told Bonnie it was difficult to discuss this with her parents. Bonnie offered to talk to the parents, and the child gratefully accepted. The mother subsequently sent an email to some of the child’s teachers informing them that the parents are getting mental health help for the girl and to “please allow us to address this as a family…” The school clearly ignored those wishes.

Accusation: Bonnie should have brought this up at the [school staff] Mariners team meeting on March 3.

The truth: The March 3 Mariners meeting was characterized by “unprofessionalism, disorganization, and chaos.” Further, during the time Bonnie was in the meeting, neither the student, the email, nor notification of parents was ever brought up, contrary to the Principal’s inaccurate assertions. (pp. 6-7.)

Accusation: Bonnie was untruthful numerous times during the March 25 investigative meeting.

The truth: Bonnie had no reason to lie. The interrogation was clearly an attempt at entrapment. (p. 3). The questions were purposefully vague and misleading, using words that could have multiple meanings. Plus, Bonnie was not allowed access to her school records which would aid in her recollection of where she sent emails, etc. (Attorney McNamara addresses this in detail; pp. 7-10.)

Accusation: Bonnie “violated state law and regulations regarding student records/privacy.”

The truth: The Principal simply made this vague statement. She has never cited specifically which state law and regulations Bonnie has violated. (p. 10.)

Accusation: Bonnie violated the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

The truth: FERPA encompasses only an “eligible student,” defined as a person 18 years of age or older. Plus, the whole legislative thrust of FERPA is designed to extend rights to parents with respect to their children’s educational records. Its intent is not to enable school administrators to usurp those rights. (p. 11)

In sum, Attorney McNamara said that the parents had an absolute legal right to the student information conveyed to them by Bonnie.

The school administration goes forward anyway and fires Bonnie

On May 19, 2021, two days after receiving Attorney McNamara’s letter, the Principal sent Bonnie an official termination letter. The letter listed all the reasons included previously – which had been convincingly debunked by McNamara in his letter.

Obviously, the anger and zeal of the Principal and Superintendent to get rid of Bonnie was paramount in their minds. They clearly do not care about the cost of an expensive lawsuit that will be borne by the taxpayers of Ludlow – which the school system will surely lose.

Final reflection

The irrationality of this action against a good teacher – and the sloppy, juvenile way that these supposedly “professional” school officials are going about it – may surprise many parents. As Attorney McNamara observed, “This is not an illustration of first-rate minds at work.” But unfortunately, in today’s public education world, it is surely more the norm than the exception. And worse, as you will see, the Ludlow School Board is in full support of this lunacy.

We all need to stand up and resist this sort of action wherever we encounter it. The Ludlow parents and Bonnie are doing that!

Coming up: Another big resignation – and the ensuing fury against the parents by the School Board.

Please help us continue to do our uncompromising work!

Our successes depend on people like you.
