Georgia Grade School Parents Finally Fighting Back After Administrators Ban ‘Pledge of Allegiance’

Published

on

Parents are finally speaking up after a Georgia grade school proudly announced that it was eliminating the Pledge of Allegiance in order to be “more inclusive.” In its place school officials wanted kids to recite an oath to the “global society.”

So, pledging to support America is now “divisive”? As far as these “educators” it was.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, campus president Lara Zelski announced early this month that the Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School on Grant Street dumped the Pledge of Allegiance.

The decision was made, Zelski said, “in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community. Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge.”

Parents began speaking out against the policy soon enough. And the school’s anti-American act caught the eye of Georgia House Speaker David Ralston and gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, both of whom slammed the school for its idiocy.

According to the paper:

By about 6:15 p.m., the school issued a statement saying its policies were aligned with those of the Georgia Department of Education but ” … it appears there was some miscommunication and inconsistency in the rollout. Starting next week, we will return to our original format and provide our students with the opportunity to recite the Pledge during the all-school morning meeting.”

The state DOE policy demands that schools set a time for the pledge, each school day, at the beginning of the school day or during the homeroom period. But students may not be compelled to recite the pledge, it adds.

The school system also chimed in on the controversy:

Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School has and will continue to provide students with an opportunity to recite the Pledge of Allegiance each school day. In the past, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited during our all-school morning meeting, but at the start of the school year, the daily practice was moved to classrooms. This change was done in compliance with state law [O.C.G.A. 20-2-310 (c)(1)] and aligned Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School with most other schools in the state who also say the Pledge of Allegiance in individual classrooms. However, it appears there was some miscommunication and inconsistency in the rollout. Starting next week, we will return to our original format and provide our students with the opportunity to recite the Pledge during the all-school morning meeting.

At ANCS, our priority is to provide our students with a safe and dynamic learning environment where they cultivate a love for learning, develop self-knowledge, and are constantly challenged to excel. We support our students in their growth and see it as our duty as educators to respect their First Amendment rights.

We are working together with the school administration to ensure we address concerns and feedback from our school family, while continuing to uphold and support the rights of every member of our school community.

While this crisis has been averted, it is just a piece of the left-wing nonsense we are seeing in nearly every school in the country. No longer are kids taught reading, writing, arithmetic, and civic virtue, now they are strictly taught radical left-wing ideals.

Parents, you do both your children and your country a disservice to let these schools get away with this. Fight back like these parents in Atlanta did.

Professor Says ‘White Lives Don’t Matter,’ School Promotes Her, Gives Her Raise

University professor Dr Priyamvada Gopal sparked calls of perpetrating a hate crime after tweeting “white lives don’t matter.”

Published

University professor Dr Priyamvada Gopal sparked calls of perpetrating a hate crime after tweeting “white lives don’t matter.” But instead of properly firing her, the university gave her a big raise and a promotion.

The hate-filled “educator” kicked off the controversy with a tweet where she said the lives of white people are not important.

Gopal, who teaches in the Faculty of English at Churchill College, saw her message deleted by Twitter after an avalanche of complaints washed over her Twitter account and people reported her for hate speech.

Soon enough students and others began floating a petition to have this scumbag fired from her position.

Gopal. though, was utterly unrepentant, and even whined that she received hate speech in return.

She also made sure people understood that she 100 percent stands behind the statement that white people don’t deserve to live and that it was Twitter, not she, that had deleted the tweet.

“My Tweet said whiteness is not special, not a criterion for making lives matter. I stand by that,” she explained.

But instead of firing her, the university stood by Gopal for her hate.

“The University defends the right of its academics to express their own lawful opinions, which others might find controversial,” the school said. Riiight. I’ll bet if they had a professor that said something construed as conservative, they would have fired him in a flash.

Then, instead of condemning their prof who demeaned the lives of white people, the college attacked the people upset at Gopal’s comments: “[It] deplores in the strongest terms abuse and personal attacks. These attacks are totally unacceptable and must cease.”

Then the school promoted her even after she then began claiming that the school was raaaaacist against her.

This creep is a gem, huh?

Boston College Apologizes to Black Lives Matter for Allowing City Police to Use School Bathrooms

The Boston Berklee College of Music is falling all over itself to apologize for allowing local police to use the school’s restrooms.

Published

on

The Boston Berklee College of Music is falling all over itself to apologize to domestic terror outfit Black Lives Matter for allowing local police to use the school’s restrooms.

The fools running the college blubbered that allowing police to use their bathroom tend toward “perpetuating feelings of oppression, silencing, and marginalization.”

This is, of course, pure idiocy.

The school bent a knee to Black Lives Matter in a recent Facebook post.

“We have heard from many of you personally and across social channels of your hurt and anger that this access was permitted, especially as the facility is not currently open for students and members of our community,” the school’s statement read. “Allowing police officers into the space was in no way meant to undermine Berklee’s support for Black Lives Matter.”

“We understand that many members of our community feel betrayed. We are deeply sorry for the impact this had on our community and for perpetuating feelings of oppression, silencing, and marginalization,” the statement continued. “We will make a more concerted effort to consider the effects of our actions.”

These fools concluded saying, “this should not have happened, and going forward, it will not happen again.”

Please see this important message regarding Boston Police Officers at the BPC.Dear members of the Berklee…

Posted by Berklee Public Safety Department on Tuesday, June 9, 2020

Once again, we see proof that our institutes of “higher learning” are bastions of radical, anti-American, and dangerous ideas aimed at destroying the United States and they should be utterly defunded.

This particular hate group is a private college, of course, but parents and students should instantly flee from it.

California High School Teacher Admits Teaching Students that Trump is a ‘Fascist’

Another public high school teacher has admitted teaching her students that Trump and Republicans are “fascists” who kill people for money.

Published

Another public high school teacher has admitted teaching her students that Trump and Republicans are “fascists” who kill people for money.

In dozens of tweets uncovered by Twitter users and publicized by Gateway Pundit, teacher Lora Yorch is seen claiming that Trump’s election is worse than the terror attacks on 9/11, that any of her students who support Trump are unintelligent, and that Republicans represent “the worst” of America.

Worse, Yorch is a government and economics teacher at the Whittier Union High School District in Whittier, California, so she is exactly in a position where her mental disorder can affect students in the worst way possible.

Yorch routinely launches personal attacks on her students. In one attack, for instance, she calls Hispanic students idiots, and troublemakers if they in any way disagree with her political bile.

This unhinged, hate-filled woman also attacks Fox News in her classroom, saying it is not a news outlet.

In yet another tweet, Yorch said she agreed with those who want President Trump assassinated.

Internet sleuths have ferreted out a bevy of semi-anonymous social media accounts that Yorch disgorges her hate upon. The accounts all feature the same photos of herself, her dog, or others she is associated with.

Take a look as some of the vitriol this ignoramus liberal admits to telling her kids:

These are only a few of the posts dug up from his cretin. Go to Gateway Pundit to see even more.

Rhode Island Teacher Pleads for Someone with Coronavirus to Infect Trump

A hate-filled teacher in Rhode Island raised eyebrows by posting her wish that someone who has the coronavirus would cough on Trump.

Published

on

A hate-filled liberal teacher in Rhode Island raised eyebrows last weekend by posting her wish that someone who has the coronavirus would cough on Trump and infect and kill him.

The teacher, Aimee Bednarz, an ELL teacher at Villa Nova Middle School in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, jumped to Twitter over the weekend to offer a cash bounty for someone with COVID-19 to “cough on Trump.”

A screenshot of her tweet was quickly made because everyone just knew she’d try to delete it later:

Is this the sort of hate we want our children exposed to every day in school?

On Monday, Bednarz was still listed as a sixth-grade teacher on the Villa Nova website:

According to her LinkedIn page, the woman has worked in schools in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

According to another report, this is not the first time Bednarz has stirred controversy.

Apparently, this arrogant facist does not like it when parents dare to get involved in the school lives of their own children.

This is the kind of cretin who is all too often seen infesting our public schools.

UPDATE

This teacher has resigned from her position with the schools.

University of Chicago Lies About ‘Tolerance,” Allows Horrible Attacks on Conservative Woman

The University of Chicago stood idly by as a conservative woman became to target of brutal left-wing hatred for saying she opposed socialism.

Published

on

The University of Chicago stood idly by as a conservative woman became the target of brutal left-wing hatred for saying she opposed socialism, despite the administration’s claims that it supports “intellectual diversity.”

Not long ago, the University of Chicago’s President, Robert Zimmer, piously proclaimed that his campus will not bow to the armies of political correctness, nor President Trump’s meddling with campus speech because his school was a forum for free expression.

“Any recognized student group, faculty group, university department or individual faculty member can invite a speaker to campus. We recognize that there will be debate and disagreement over this event; as part of our commitment to free expression, the university supports the ability of protesters and invited speakers to express a wide range of views,” he exclaimed last year.

Well, some might have imagined that Zimmer was striking a blow for free expression, left, right, and center.

But it turns out, Zimmer is a liar. His campus is like so many others in our system of miseducation, so filled with anti-American extremism. Barely a year has passed since Zimmer’s lie-filled proclamation when a student found herself nearly hounded off the campus because she dared to make an entirely mild statement that leans conservative.

Evita Duffy, the daughter of former Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, is in her second year of college at UofC, and she decided to join a leftist student project called the whiteboard challenge. The challenge asked students to hold a whiteboard upon which they were to write the reason they intend to vote in the coming primaries and the 2020 general election.

Duffy’s whiteboard, though, sported a decidedly conservative message. It read, “I vote because the Coronavirus won’t destroy America, but socialism will.”

As soon as a photo showing Duffy holding the message got around campus, though, she was frighteningly attacked by students and faculty over her entirely mild, wholly American message.

In an op ed at the school’s Chicago Maroon paper, Duffy wrote, ”

“I hoped my white board message might even encourage a lively and robust debate on economics,” Duffy wrote.

“However, I was naïvely unprepared for the onslaught of online hate and threats of violence I received,” she added.

Fellow students attacked my character, my intellect, my family, my appearance, and even threatened me with physical violence, using foul and offensive language. I was called a racist and a xenophobe. Some compared me to animals. Others declared that they would personally stop me from voting, and many defended the personal attacks, saying I deserved to be bullied and that I don’t belong at the University of Chicago on account of my beliefs. I was told by many that I was the most hated person on campus. It was frightening. It was also hurtful, since some of the attacks came from people I considered friends.

The school has done precisely nothing about this other than to wag a finger at those violating Duffy’s rights. Meanwhile, the campus fascist liberals continue their daily attacks unabated on this woman.

Duffy’s plight caught the eye of a lot of conservatives on the national scene, though:

Kentucky High School Dumps Locker Room Bible Verse After Threats of Atheist Lawsuit

A Kentucky high school has painted over a Bible verse that was on a locker room wall for fear of a lawsuit by Christian-hating atheists.

Published

on

A Kentucky high school has painted over a Bible verse that was on a locker room wall for fear of a lawsuit by Christian-hating atheists.

The Christian-hating Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent an attack letter to Letcher County Public Schools in Whitesburg, Ky., demanding that the inspirational verse be removed from the walls.

The Christian-haters told the school that verse “violates the Constitution” by displaying “religious symbols or messages.”

This, any half-informed American understands, is poppycock. The Constitution says freedom OF religion, not “from” religion.

According to Fox News:

Bold letters on the wall of the Letcher County Central High School athletic locker room said: “But the Lord is with me like a Mighty Warrior,” with attribution to Jeremiah 20:11. But in February, school officials removed it.

The school also dumped a bulletin board message displayed in Fleming Neon Middle School that said, “Jesus is my savior You can’t scare me!” and a prayer for children on the Martha Jane Potter Elementary School’s Facebook page at the beginning of the school year.

The message read:

“Dear God, Thank you for the gift of education in every form. As our children prepare to start a new year may confidence be their foundation, may grace be their guide and may hope be their compass toward a bright future. I pray they would have eyes to see the needs of those around them and a heart to love well. May they face each day with positivity knowing that no matter what comes their way, they do not have to face it alone. Amen.”

“The bulletin board has been replaced, the Facebook post has been removed, and the locker room has been repainted,” Superintendent Denise Yonts wrote in a February letter to the FFRF.

The move was just another idiotic move by another school unwilling to stand up for America.

Maryland High School Teaches Kids Trump is Like Nazis and Communists

A public school in Maryland has sparked a backlash for claims that Donald Trump is no different than the communists and murderous Nazis.

Published

on

A public school in Maryland has sparked a backlash for a “history” lesson that claims Donald Trump’s presidency is no different than the oppressive communists and murderous Nazis.

Parents were up in arms over a slide shown in an Advanced Placement history lesson at Loch Raven High School that shows Trump above a caption reading, “Wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall.” Underneath that are the logos of the Nazi and Communist regimes with the words “Been there, done that.”

Yet another caption reads, “Oh, that is why it sounds so familiar,” the Baltimore Sun reported.

Maryland Delegate Kathy Szeliga posted an image of the slide on Facebook, and also distributed copies of the slide to fellow Baltimore County members of the House of Delegates.

“This propaganda was used in an AP history class at Loch Raven High,” Szeliga exclaimed. “Educational malfeasance of the highest degree.”

Posted by Kathy Szeliga on Friday, February 21, 2020

Szeliga added that the school district’s response to the controversy has been “wholly unacceptable.”

The Baltimore County Public Schools issued a statement excusing the slide away:

The slide was used as part of a lesson in an AP History course. The topics being discussed included World Wars and the attempts by some leaders to limit, or prevent migration, into certain countries. In isolation and out of context with the lesson, the image could be misunderstood. In our Advanced Placement (AP) classes, which are college level courses, we expect and encourage analysis and discussion around historical and current events even if they are considered controversial. This lesson was not intended to make a political statement. If a student has concerns when discussing a controversial issue, schools have the tools to address the concern and support the student.

Szeliga was not the only lawmaker incensed by the slide.

Baltimore County Councilman Wade Kach called the statement and the slide “a piece of propaganda.”

“I think it is inappropriate in a high school to have something like that that is so controversial,” Kach added. “I think to in any way try to draw a comparison to the president and the communists or the Nazis” isn’t right, he added

The lessons are written by the individual teachers, the district noted, so this particular plan is the brainchild of an extremist, left-winger posing as a teacher.

The district, though, would not say anything more, only noting that the incident will be “appropriately addressed” with the teacher.

Szeliga is right. This is wholly unacceptable.
