What is disgusting to me is the hatred our schools have for our freedoms of speech, freedom of religion and most of our other freedoms.  When they are supposed to teach them, they oppose them and act like they don’t even exist.  Students who are patriotic and want to where a shirt with an American flag have been required to turn the shirt inside out or be sent home.  The reason will make you want to pull your hair out.  They can’t where the shirt because if might offend a student that is here illegally!  A federal court ruled Thursday that a northern California high school did not violate the constitutional rights of its students when school officials made them turn their American flag T-shirts inside out on Cinco de Mayo or be sent home due to fears of racial violence.

The three-judge panel unanimously decided the officials’ need to protect the safety of their students outweighed the students’ freedom of expression rights.

Administrators at Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, feared the American-flag shirts would enflame Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday, and ordered the students to either turn the shirts inside out or go home for the day.

The school had a history of problems between white and Latino students on that day, and also had a documented history of violence between gang members and between racial groups. The court said these past problems gave school officials sufficient and justifiable reasons for their actions and that schools have wide latitude in curbing certain civil rights to ensure campus safety.[1] I will have to say that if there is a problem, then address the reason for the problem, the illegals!  This is America, but our courts tell us that we can’t defend our country, we can’t be proud of our country because it might offend someone here illegally.  Keep in mind that the 9th Circus Court is overturned 79% of the time.  But the children are told they can’t be patriotic.  That is not the America I grew up in.

In another instance a student, during ‘Spirit Week’, wore a republican tee shirt and was told that he had to turn it inside out or go home.  These things seem to happen to the conservative leaning students but not liberals.  The student and his mother looked up the school dress code, but did not find any prohibitions on political logos.

In fact, the school does not restrict students from wearing political symbols to school, although clothing considered “obscene, profane, suggestive or derogatory to others” is forbidden. School employees, however, are forbidden from wearing clothes with political messages to school.

After the student’s mother inquired about the incident, the school acknowledged that the shirt did not violate the school dress code and issued an apology.

A spokesperson for the Duval County Public School District claimed that the school employee who said that the shirt violated the dress code was confused about the variance in rules for students and school staff.[2]  I don’t believe this lame excuse. I believe that the school employee was simply anti-Republican.

Now we are having heroes of our nation being degraded because of a fear or war on masculinity.  For nearly two centuries, Texans have invoked the line “remember the Alamo” to commemorate those brave men who fought and died attempting to defend their fort and make a stand for Texas’s independence against a much larger Mexican army. Now an advisory committee to the State Board of Education in Texas is recommending that the word “heroic” be dropped from the official state-approved history curriculum describing the men who participated in this historic battle arguing that it is “a value charged word.”

The advisory committee is composed of educators and historians and has been charged with revising and streamlining the state’s history curriculum. The proposed change would be made to the seventh grade history standards, since Texas schoolchildren study the history of their state in seventh grade.

The current state history standards expect students to be able to:

“Explain the issues surrounding significant events of the Texas Revolution, including the Battle of Gonzales, William B. Travis’s letter “To the People of Texas and All Americans in the World,” the siege of the Alamo and all the heroic defenders who gave their lives there, the Constitutional Convention of 1836, Fannin’s surrender at Goliad, and the Battle of San Jacinto.”

If the advisory committee has their way, the phrase “heroic defenders” will be eliminated. [3]

Even colleges get into this wimpy point of view that ‘male supremacy’ is a bad thing.  An all-male a cappella choir has stopped singing a popular song from “Disney’s The Little Mermaid” after some students at the Ivy League school said it promotes “toxic masculinity.”

For years, the Princeton University Tigertones group sang “Kiss the Girl” as part of a performance that included selecting a man and woman from the audience to dance before ultimately enticing them to kiss.

In an editorial last month in the school’s Daily Princetonian, Noa Wollstein said the song and on-stage performance is “more misogynistic and dismissive of consent than cute.”

The song, part of the iconic 1989 animated film, is performed by anthropomorphic crab Sebastian. In the film, Sebastian encourages Prince Eric to make a move on Ariel, who had lost her voice due to a spell by Ursula.

Wollstein wrote that kissing Ariel without verbal consent “comes across as even more jarring.” [4] The liberals want everybody to be as feminized as they are.  They don’t like a strong character in anyone.

We must do all we can to put morality back in out classrooms.  There are schools that use drag queens to teach gender ideology.  The problem with that is there are two genders, male, female.  That’s it.  Any other ‘gender’ is nothing more than figment of someone’s imagination.  K-12 schools are bringing drag queens into the classroom to teach gender ideology, a Thursday video revealed.

Teachers are praising “Drag Queen Story Hour,” according to a clip released by videographer Sean Fitzgerald and the David Horowitz Freedom Center. The program “captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.”

Maurice Sendak Community School, a public school located in Brooklyn, New York, hosted a drag queen and first grade teacher Alexis Hernandez marveled at the event in a testimonial published on Drag Queen Story Hour’s website.

“Drag Queen Story Hour gave my first graders a fun and interactive platform to talk and think about social and emotional issues like acceptance, being yourself, and loving who you are,” Hernandez said.[5]

We have teachers that demand that their political views override and be embraced by the students.[6] Religious views of teachers and professors are also demanded to be embraced by students no matter the religious views of the student.[7], [8], [9]  But now a moral teacher that refuses to be politically correct, could lose his job because he refuses to call a girl by a male pronoun.  When French teacher Peter Vlaming refused to use a male pronoun for a female student, administrators gave him a choice: lie or lose your job.

Playing pretend used to be for kids. Now, it’s a condition of employment! For Vlaming, whose story shows just how far off the rails society is, started getting national attention this week ahead of his hearing. Like a lot of professionals, Vlaming knew the debate over these transgender issues was fierce. What he didn’t know is that one day it could decide his career.

Unfortunately, that’s exactly what’s happening to the popular teacher, who was put on administrative leave in Virginia after a biological girl asked him to use male pronouns when he addressed her.[10]

The problems we have in our schools have been decades in the making.  It will take more than one or two presidential terms to fix.  But if we don’t start, we will never make any changes and America will be lost before those allowing it to happen even know that it happened.  The ball is in our court.
