Have you bitten your fingernails today? Hopefully, you have saved room for when you watch this. If you’re a reasonable parent with a student in the public school system and notice a blatant violation – unfortunately this absurd behavior is something you might encounter from the district school board. That is, if they are intertwined with an agenda.
Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkreig reported the background on the Naples, Florida incident.
In order to give you some background on the issue, see the Letter to the Editor he wrote to the Naples Daily News on 1/28 to say what he was prevented from saying at the 1/20 School Board Workshop…
A quick synopsis of the letter involves parents who wished to speak out about premature curriculum approval that involved blatant historical fallacies (that you would probably detect immediately as propaganda) in text books. Seriously, that’s it. They wanted to point out the problems. For getting involved and wanting to rationally discuss the textbook problems (like the history book claiming the government can informally change the Constitution or the elimination of the U.S. on a world map) they were allegedly called “Nazi book burners” and “narrow-minded, racist Bible-thumpers.”
A recap of how the actual January Collier County School Board Workshop went in the video, shows that the parents never made it that far. They weren’t allowed to direct any comments to “approvers” or anyone involved or anyone who was using authority to silence the parents. This extended to absurd levels when it turned out that parents would be “shushed” like children for using any pronouns at all or referring to any human beings – as opposed to generalized, vague, watered-down topics. This wasn’t just a matter of keeping the peace – this was censorship via the same maturity of a schoolyard bully taunting “quit hittin’ yourself! quit hittin’ yourself!”
Also note the psychological effect of the parents having to look up to the chairwoman to make their statements….
