I’m currently listening to our virtual school board meeting on reopening and, even more controversially, a new proposal on identity politics written by Marxist activists who are wrapping themselves in the veneer of “equality” while hiding behind kids to avoid legitimate discussion. The million-dollar plus proposal includes altering the district’s curriculum to requiring diversity and inclusion training to graduate and establishing a new Thinkpol to literally monitor “everyday verbal or nonverbal, snubs or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized or underrepresented group membership.”
The entire meeting has consisted of a few people who politely oppose, a few people who politely support, and a mob of angry, and at times, shouting people, some of whom threatened the school board members if they vote no.
“Your names will be on record as someone who helped hold up oppression and fear …”
“The media is watching what is happening here …”
“IT’S TIME FOR THE WHITE SUBURBAN BUBBLE TO POP”
Actually, no, they’re not. Marxist activists are threatening to essentially destroy the lives of school board members for not bowing to the extension of BLM spreading out in schools, this is what the promise of media attention means. This isn’t persuasion, activism, or advocacy, it’s political terrorism. It’s happening everywhere. It’s in your children’s schools and if it isn’t, it will be.
If this or any school district is so bad, then defund it. Issue vouchers allowing every family to send their student elsewhere. Support school choice. If you don’t support this measure, then you support racism and a violation of human rights or something. This is the response.
