Dems Plan Resolution To Keep Explicit Books In Schools

House and Senate Democrats have begun to prepare a resolution aimed at blocking local “book bans” by parents who believe gender identity, social agendas and explicit sexual content should be removed from a child’s education, Politico reported Thursday.

The resolution, concerned about the spread of book banning, “reaffirms the United States’ commitment to supporting writers’ freedom of expression, and the freedom of all Americans to read books without government censorship,” according to Politico. Erika Sanzi, director of outreach for Parents Defending Education (PDE), told the Daily Caller News Foundation that PDE does not support book bans, yet believes explicit content is inappropriate in K-12 settings.

“Parents Defending Education has never supported book bans. The fact that most school libraries don’t stock ‘Art of the Deal’ does not mean the book is banned and the same goes for a book with sexually explicit illustrations and content deemed to be inappropriate in a K-12 setting,” Sanzi said.

The draft resolution references a 1982 Supreme Court decision, Board of Education v. Pico, which established a precedent that blocked schools from removing books from high school and junior high libraries in a “narrowly partisan or political manner,” according to Politico.

Ontario High School Defends “Fetishistic” Large Bust-Wearing Teacher

The Ontario High School at the center of controversy for having a male teaching young students while donning a large prosthetic bust has issued a full defense of the teacher in a newly-leaked email sent to parents.

On September 16, Reduxx confirmed the identity and employment status of the subject of viral images and videos which depicted a male instructor teaching students while wearing an unnaturally large prosthetic bust, complete with prominently protruding nipples.

While the images and videos had circulated for a few days prior, there was widespread confusion and disbelief as to whether or not the images were real, or, as some speculated, part of an elaborate hoax or comedy sketch.

But Reduxx managed to verify that the shocking media could be traced back to Oakville Trafalgar High School (OTHS) in Ontario, Canada. The subject of the photos is Kayla Lemieux, a Manufacturing Technology instructor who allegedly began identifying as a woman last year. Prior to transitioning, Lemieux was known to students as Stephen Hanna.

Reduxx had contacted OTHS for comment, but was declined any answers. The administrator did, however, confirm that Lemieux was an active employee at the school.

Following the viral news, OTHS has now issued an email statement to parents in which they defend Lemieux’s employment status in the name of inclusivity.

“We are aware of discussion on social media and in the media regarding Oakville Trafalgar High School. We would like to take this opportunity to reiterate to our community that we are committed to establishing and maintaining a safe, caring, inclusive, equitable and welcoming learning and working environment for all students and staff,” the email reads.

The school defers to the Ontario Human Rights Code, suggesting that any concerns about Lemieux would be akin to discrimination.

Minnesota’s ‘Spirit Hijab’ School District has Produced Multiple Islamic Terrorists

The Burnsville, Minnesota public school district where “school spirit hijabs” are being offered to elementary students has produced multiple Islamic terrorists, including an ISIS member who was killed in combat in the Middle East. Located just 15 miles south of downtown Minneapolis, suburban Burnsville has absorbed thousands of Somali Islamic migrants, who now exert their religious influence over the local public school district.

As National File recently reported, William Byrne Elementary School in Burnsville, Minnesota is offering “school spirit hijabs” to its young students, under the guise of the school’s “Somali cultural liaison” and in conjunction with its parent-teacher organization. The Sharia-compliant head garb for kids is available in the school’s online “spirit store” and is going on sale at various school events for $6. They come in two colors and feature the school’s bulldog mascot.

Notably, the hijabs are $4 cheaper than any other spirit item.

National File attempted to make contact with William Byrne Elementary School’s principal, Jon Bonneville, but received no response. National File had hoped to learn whether the school would begin offering “school spirit crucifixes” or “school spirit yarmulkes” to students not adhering to the Christian and Jewish faiths and asked principal Bonneville if the hijab sales meant the school was endorsing Sharia law.

L.A. Schools Push Childhood Obesity In Bizarre Video Promoting Donuts As Healthy

The Los Angeles Unified School district promoted a video to encourage childhood obesity last week featuring a nutritionist who represents the processed food industry, according to the L.A. Parents Union.

The video, apparently published on the Human Relations page of the district’s Instagram account, aims to dismiss the idea of “bad” food no matter its nutritional value as “based on a false standard of ‘health.’” The clip, which no longer appears posted, begins with a woman offered a plate of iced donuts who recoils at their presentation.

“Those are so bad for you,” she claims, as her friend suggesting the sugary snack appears perplexed at the reaction.

“Oh no! Are they moldy? I mean, are they poisoned? Are you allergic?” the presenter asks while holding up the plate of dough and sprinkles. “Hm, you’re judging my food choices based on a false standard of health again, aren’t you.”

“Guilty.”

The conversation is followed by Kéra Nyemb-Diop, whom the video identified as the “Black Nutritionist,” encouraging students to abandon conventional standards of “good” and “bad choices.”

“Diet culture, fatphobia, and systems of oppression have created false hierarchies of food and show up everywhere,” says Nyemb-Diop. “Remember that you do not need to ‘earn’ food… Eat without guilt, regardless of what society says.”

‘All Books Should Be In The Library’: Jill Biden Takes Shot At Parents Concerned About Inappropriate Books In School Libraries

First lady Jill Biden, who got her doctoral degree in educational from the University of Delaware, implicitly criticized American parents who feel inappropriate books are lying on the bookshelves of the children’s school libraries.

In recent years, many parents have stood up to school boards and denounced schools for their inclusion of books they feel teach inappropriate values to their children.

Biden was prompted by NBC’s “Today” host Sheinelle Jones, who started by noting something that would have caused nary a ripple in the past.

“Parents and politicians are now weighing in on what books should be in our school libraries and what their kids are being taught. Where is the line in your opinion, with how much of a say parents should have when it comes to what their kids are learning in school,” she asked.

“Well, I think with the pandemic, parents saw how hard teachers work and how difficult this job really is,” Biden answered. “And I think  if they work together in their school districts and decide what they want with their curriculum.”

“Is there a balance between this book should be in the library, this book is under review?” Jones asked.

“All books should be in the library,” Biden pronounced. “All books. This is America. We don’t ban books.”

Idaho Elementary Students Are Being Taught ‘Porn Literacy’, How To Hide Pornography Consumption From Parents

The Idaho state government is encouraging K-12 minors to consume pornography without any shame.

Even though it is illegal for adults to show children under the age of 18 pornographic material, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (IDHW) is reportedly purchasing so-called “porn literacy” materials from ‘Education, Training and Research’ (ETR) a nonprofit progressive organization.

The Idaho Freedom Foundation (IFF) first exposed the IDHW for its radical agenda. By purchasing materials from ETR, Idaho students will be subject to a curriculum that pushes instruction of “kink and power, pleasure, sexual identity, sexual acts, and sexual exploration in relation to pornography.”

The IWW said ETR is an “interest group that promotes queering education and normalizing the consumption of pornography.”

In ETR materials, pornography is a “required topic” that must be talked about. One ETR-recommended training video shows animated cartoon characters professing sexual innuendos.

California High School Teacher Boasts ‘Queer Library’ With Material on Orgies and BDSM/Kink

A teacher in the California Capistrano School District boasted in a post that her classroom “queer library” now has about 100 volumes. Concerned parents note that many of the books contain explicit “sex imagery, information on orgies, sex parties, and BDSM,” according to Fox News.

The teacher serves children at San Juan Hills High School. Her name is Danielle Serio, but is better known as “Flint.” 

Flint’s multiple TikTok posts show the “queer library” to have been in place for about five years. 

This family-friendly post omits many of the sexually-explicit aspects of this “library,” which many argue is inappropriate for minors—particularly in a public school setting.

According to the Fox News report, one of the books, “Juliet Takes a Breath” by Gabby Rivera, “contains extremely graphic imagery of sex between women.”

CA Parents Sue School District After ‘Nonbinary’ Male Counselors Allegedly Slept in Girls’ Cabins at Science Camp

Last February a group of California parents discovered that their elementary school children were subjected to an extremely uncomfortable situation when allegedly forced to bunk with nonbinary counselors at a four-day camping trip to an outdoor science retreat. The camp vehemently denies the accusations, but the school district is where parents identified the real problem.

The Pali Institute is a Southern California staple. Elementary schools from across the region regularly organize three- and four-day science retreats with the camp. Most children who grow up in Southern California have a Pali story in their history. It has been a beloved learning retreat for decades.

However, parents from Los Alamitos Unified School District (LAUSD) were perplexed when their children came home from the science camp and some claimed “nonbinary” adults (biologically male) slept in the cabins with female students, some as young as 10 years old. They also say the children were subject to “verbal abuse” from one such counselor.

Irish Teacher Gets Jail Time After Refusing to Use a Transgender Student’s Preferred Pronouns

A teacher in the Republic of Ireland has been suspended from teaching and later jailed on contempt charges after he refused to address a transgender student by their preferred pronouns.

Enoch Burke was arrested on Monday for violating a court order that barred him from teaching at Wilson’s Hospital School in Westmeath, the news site RTE.ie reported. In addition to being barred from teaching, Burke is not allowed to set foot on the property, per the court order.

Judge Michael Quinn later found Burke guilty of violating the High Court’s mandate. He was then sent to Mountjoy Prison, where he will remain until either he purges his contempt, or the court gives further orders.

The teacher stood by his refusal even when faced with jail time, telling the judge that “it is insanity” that he would be arrested and taken to prison for refusing to violate his Christian beliefs. “I love my school, with its motto Res Non Verba, ‘Actions not words,’ but I am here today because I said I would not call a boy a girl,” Burke told the court.

The saga began when Burke, who teaches politics and German at the school in Multyfarnham, County Westmeath, refused to address a transgender pupil as “they” instead of “he.” He was soon placed on administrative leave by school officials pending the outcome of an investigation and disciplinary process.

Burke refused to stay away from campus, however. He continued to refuse despite an injunction that barred him from teaching or even setting foot on Wilson’s campus.

On Friday, the judge issued an order to arrest Burke after he was found sitting in an empty classroom at the school. He was arrested at the school on Monday and taken directly to court, where he told the judge that he would not comply with the injunction.

“I am a teacher and I don’t want to go to prison,” Burke told the court. “I want to be in my classroom today, that’s where I was this morning when I was arrested.”

“Transgenderism is against my Christian belief. It is contrary to the scriptures, contrary to the ethos of the Church of Ireland and of my school,” he added.

More than 100 students baptized without parents’ permission at North Carolina school

A North Carolina school apologized after baptizing more than 100 children without their parent’s permission, according to the Fayetteville Observer.

Northwood Temple Academy in Fayetteville posted on Facebook on Thursday, “I feel it in my bones, You’re about to move! Today we had over 100 middle and high school students spontaneously declare their faith and get baptized today. We will have more pictures of these powerful moments posted over the next couple of days!”

That morning, three students had their scheduled baptisms at the school as part of Spiritual Emphasis Week before the offer was extended to other students who had not been scheduled. More than 100 students in total were baptized.

Renee McLamb, the head of the school, sent families a letter to explain as the unplanned baptisms sparked mixed responses from families.

“The Spirit of the Lord moved and the invitation to accept the Lord and be baptized was given and the students just began to respond to the presence of the Lord,” McLamb said in a letter, obtained by the Observer, that was sent to families.

The school says it typically notifies and invites parents to be present for any baptisms that happen on campus, and “it was not the intention of any faculty member to do anything behind a parent’s back or in any kind of secret way.”

“I do understand that parents would desire to be a part of something so wonderful happening in the lives of their children, and so I apologize that we did not take that into consideration in that moment,” McLamb said. “I pray that at the end of the day we will all rejoice because God truly did a work in the lives of our students.”
