Drag Queen Story Hour: The Latest From Public Indoctrination Centers You Send Your Kids To


Reported by Tim Brown

I truly am wondering when parents are going to have enough and pull their kids out of the public indoctrination centers we call public schools and stop subjected their children to this depravity and insanity.  The latest attempt to indoctrinate America’s children into the bizarre and mental and sexual derangement comes by way of the Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH).  That’s right, men dressed up as women will be providing stories to America’s children.

The story hours start for kids as young as preschool, targeting ages 3-8, and is being referred to as “social and emotional learning.”  Let’s be clear, this is nothing more than non-education.  It is indoctrination.  It is setting in children’s minds that it is perfectly normal for men to dress and act like women and vice versa, which then further indoctrination will add that it’s perfectly normal for men to be with men and women with women.

The latest occurred in Pasadena, California at the Pasadena Museum of California Art (PCMA).  Schools are the ones supporting and promoting this and I can only think that parents who are actually fond of this behavior would be the only ones to subject their children to it.

Take a look at this report by Sean Fitzgerald, in conjunction with the David Horowitz Freedom Center and Stop K-12 Indoctrination.

“Drag Queen reading hours don’t only take place in private book stores and rented spaces in public libraries. Many of these events take place within our public schools.”

It’s nothing more than what Communism’s goals for America are.

In the list of the “45 Goals for the Communist Takeover of America,” there are specific attacks on morality, especially regarding homosexuality.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

The idea of drag queens coincides right along with sodomites, lesbians and other mentally ill behavior in our society. And that is exactly where these people are going with things.  As Fitzgerald points out, the goal is to teach children there really is no difference between males and females.

Just see for yourself.

“DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models,” the drag queens’ website states. “In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.”

Fitzgerald then goes on to point out the absurdity of the story hour.

“The taxpayer is funding adult-themed performers to come and read to our smallish children in order to indoctrinate them into a political ideology about gender while, at the same time, school districts across the country are removing any and all references to biological sex from science textbooks,” he said.

This is nothing less than social engineering and indoctrination.

Dr. Susan Berry reported:

Jane Robbins, senior fellow at the American Principles Project, based in Washington, DC, wrote in a statement sent to Breitbart News that “‘social emotional learning,’ in the hands of radical ideologues, can turn into child abuse”:


“These people apparently think children’s stability in their identities should be sacrificed to advance a political agenda,” she said and added:

These drag-queen exhibitions seem designed to create gender confusion – known as gender dysphoria, or “transgenderism” – in young children. “This condition in turn could lead to treatment that, in the words of the American College of Pediatricians, “virtually ensures they will ‘choose’ a lifetime of carcinogenic and otherwise toxic cross-sex hormones, and likely consider unnecessary surgical mutilation of their healthy body parts as young adults.”

“Sufferers from gender dysphoria have sky-high rates of suicide,” Robbins continued. “But at least they can be used to advance a political agenda.”

It’s time parents protect their children, take them out of these indoctrination centers and teach them at home.  It’s the only way for there to be true education and provide a safe environment for children to learn.  It is parents’ responsibility, even their duty to teach their own kids rather than rely on a statist school system that does nothing to educate them in the important things in life and ultimately why they are here in the first place.  Come on parents, stop being outraged, and start taking action and do all you can do for the best education you can provide for your children.  Start for free today!

Trump Supporters Score Huge Federal Win After Being Attacked in Sanctuary City


Reported By Cillian Zeal | July 30, 2018 at 8:50am

A lawsuit by Donald Trump supporters attacked after a campaign event in San Jose, California, back in the summer of 2016 can proceed with a lawsuit against the city, under a ruling by a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the lawsuit alleges that police officers in the sanctuary city deliberately exposed the Trump backers to danger as they were filing out of the building where the June 2016 rally was held.

“After the rally at the McEnery Convention Center, police directed those in attendance to leave from a single exit. There, according to the lawsuit, they were ordered to head out onto a street where hundreds of anti-Trump protesters were waiting, even though a safer route and other exits were available,” the Chronicle reported.

“Twenty plaintiffs in the suit said they were beaten or struck by objects thrown by the protesters, and one plaintiff said an officer told her that police had been instructed not to intervene. The plaintiffs said police arrested three people for allegedly assaulting officers, but no one for attacking Trump supporters.”

The judges ruled that if what the supporters allege in the lawsuit is accurate, “the officers acted with deliberate indifference to a known and obvious danger” and “violated the Trump supporters’ constitutional rights.”

San Jose’s lawyers tried to argue that police weren’t responsible for the danger created by the protesters and that police shouldn’t be second-guessed. The judges didn’t exactly buy that the case should be dismissed based on that, as evidenced by the panel’s unanimous, 3-0 ruling.

“The attendees allege the officers shepherded them into a violent crowd of protesters and actively prevented them from reaching safety,” Judge Dorothy Nelson wrote in the decision.

“The officers continued to implement this plan even while witnessing the violence firsthand” and even though they knew about the earlier attacks outside the convention center, the Chronicle reported. She also noted that if the allegations in the lawsuit were proved, it would show police bore responsibility for the attacks.

Harmeet Dhillon, the lawyer for the plaintiffs and a Republican national committeewoman, said she was happy the 9th Circuit “agreed with us that, where police put citizens into harm’s way, they can be held liable for the consequences.”

She added that the suit “seeks to vindicate important civil rights of all Americans.” San Jose City Attorney Richard Doyle, predictably, said he would be looking into an appeal and that the city disagreed with both the court’s view on police liability and “the plaintiffs’ view of the facts.”

The rally was controversial even at the time; after his officers failed to protect the rally attendees, San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia praised his force “for both their effectiveness and their restraint” and posited that “additional force can incite more violence in the crowd.”

Meanwhile, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo decided to put the blame elsewhere, noting: “At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign.”

While the habit of blaming Trump for everything from racism and inequality to the War of 1812 and that really awful final Creedence Clearwater Revival album may work in the media, that doesn’t quite fly in court (and indeed, the defendants didn’t exactly fall back upon it).

Neither, however, does the argument that deliberate police negligence and inaction in the face of attacks is merely a matter of discretion. Officials in San Jose need to answer some very important questions.

Maxine Waters Panders To Millennial Voters, Shamed When Only 10 Kids Show Up For Event



disclaimerReported By Ben Marquis | June 4, 2018 at 1:25pm

 

Largely owing to her vehement and vitriolic opposition to President Donald Trump, Democratic California Rep. Maxine “Impeach 45! Waters has been heralded as something of a leader among liberals these days.

The media has even attempted to portray the 79-year-old Waters as some sort of guiding beacon for liberals of the millennial generation, granting her the nickname “Auntie Maxine” in a bid to further the notion that young people will flock to and follow her experienced wisdom.

But that image of Waters is little more than illusory, as was clearly revealed during a campaign event Sunday which was explicitly targeted toward young millennials but had an exceptionally low turnout among the desired audience, according to The American Mirror

Waters promoted the June 3 event on Twitter as a “Meet & Greet Tweet-a-thon” with the elected representative and young supporters.

max01amax01b

The event was intended to teach Waters’ young supporters how to “reclaim our time” and get them “energized and ready” to get out and vote on her behalf.

But judging by the comments on that post, Waters’ support among not just millennials, but voters of all ages in general, was simply not evident, nor was it evident in a short video from the event tweeted out by Waters later in the day. 

Judging by that tweet, not many more than 10-15 actual millennials showed up to meet and greet Waters, a majority of whom ended up uncomfortably arrayed at the front with a microphone shoved in their face to speak about the issues most important to them. They mostly spoke about immigration concerns and their mounting student debt, as well as the increasingly dismal homeless problem in the state.homeless numbers

Waters eventually reclaimed the microphone from her young supporters and delivered a brief campaign-style speech which proclaimed that Democrats would retake control of Congress via an energized “Blue Wave” of liberal and progressive voters in the November midterm elections.

As the camera panned around during her speech, empty tables and chairs sparsely populated by a handful of older and senior supporters were on display. 

At one point near the end of her monologue, Waters shifted her focus toward attacking her chief rival in the upcoming election, Republican candidate Omar Navarro, who she appeared to smear based on his alleged wrong way of thinking as a person of Latino heritage.

“He has a last name that is Latin. He’s Cuban and what a lot of our people don’t understand is, he supports the president building a wall,”  Waters said of her GOP opponent.

“He’s opposed to DACA, he does not support DACA, and in addition to that, he is not worried at all, has not said a word about what is happening at the border,” Waters added, a reference to the separation of families that come across the border illegally, a policy that existed under former President Barack Obama but which has now drawn fire under Trump as it is actually being enforced.

Waters does not represent the next great hope of the Democratic party among young millennial voters, but if the liberal media wants to continue to press that ludicrous narrative in spite of evidence to the contrary, let them have at it.

School Decides Not to Play National Anthem Before Championship Game, So Crowd Starts Singing

The NFL announced last week it would require players who are on the field before the game to stand for the national anthem. The decision sparked a lot of contentious debate in the media, which made us wonder: Do Americans still believe it’s important to play the anthem before games?

flag on the fieldWell, if what happened recently in Fresno, California is any indication, fans still consider “The Star-Spangled Banner” to be an integral part of the game — so much so they were willing to sing it even though event organizers wanted to skip it.

According to the Fresno Bee, the situation in question happened when Clovis High School and Buchanan High were playing a championship game at the softball diamond at Fresno State University. 

When an announcement was made that there would be no anthem before the game, the crowd was genuinely upset. In fact, they actually started booing.

“Honestly, I was shocked (when) the announcer stated, ‘There will be no anthem, let’s just play softball,’” fan Tiffany Marquez of Fowler, Calif., told the Bee. 

But instead of just booing, the crowd broke into song.

“Within seconds, you could hear people in the crowd singing and the volume of their voices building,” Marquez said. “There I was, standing in the middle of a true testament to unity and patriotism.”

According to David White of the Bee, it was an incredible sight.

“Hundreds of softball fans took to their feet and spangled away, singing the anthem a capella while the players on the field stood at attention toward the centerfield flag,” White said.

White said the crowd’s reaction was a powerful message of what the anthem means to people. 

“Oh say, can’t you see? The national anthem and the flag it adores still matter to a whole lot of people, and they take it personal when anyone comes between them and the star-kissed stripes. Some are obnoxious, ugly Americans, no doubt. Most of the others happen to think you can stand against social injustice (we do) and stand for the national anthem (we do, too),” White wrote. “Since when did the concepts become so mutually exclusive? Does anyone think anthem protests have started anything more than an argument that can’t be won?”

We wholeheartedly agree.

The national anthem protests in the NFL have accomplished little more than shaving a few points off the league’s TV ratings and make its partners antsy. Have the protests made us aware that some people are unhappy with certain aspects of this country? We already knew that.

Did their wholesale rejection of one of the unifying symbols of this country engender any more sympathy for them for those sitting on the fence? Not a whit. What it did was turn fans away in droves — and the free market eventually spoke. 

There are very few things that we can come together about as Americans. Our anthem ought to be one of them.

When an entire crowd can sing along when the song is omitted, we know there’s something special and unifying about “The Star-Spangled Banner” — and those who died defending it. That’s something to remember this Memorial Day.

A look at California’s AB 2943, outlawing “sexual orientation change efforts”


Posted by   Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 9:00pm

rainbow gay pride flag

Assembly Bill 2943 is currently winding its way through California’s state legislature, and many religious leaders and free speech advocates are sounding the alarm about the possible ramifications if it should pass. The proposed legislation is entitled “Unlawful Business Practices: Sexual Orientation Change Efforts“. The bill adds “sexual orientation change efforts” to the state’s Consumer Legal Remedies Act.

The key passages are as follows:

(i) (1) “Sexual orientation change efforts” means any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex.

… (a) The following unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices undertaken by any person in a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer are unlawful…

(28) Advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.

The problem with the rules (as is so often the case with California regulations) is that the scope is so broad that materials as activities could be construed to meet the definition of “sexual orientation change efforts”. One need look no farther than our coffee houses, which are now decorated with cancer warnings, to appreciate the understandable concern religious leaders, conservatives, and those with common sense have over the proposed measure.

Fox News host Todd Starnes reviewed AB2943, and noted that Alliance Defending Freedom called the potential for censorship is “staggering”.

  • A religious ministry could not hold a conference on maintaining sexual purity if the conference encourages attendees to avoid homosexual behavior;

  • A bookstore (even online bookstores) could not sell many recently published books challenging gender identity ideology and advocating that these beliefs should be rejected by society;

  • A pastor paid to speak at an event addressing current social topics could not encourage attendees that they can prevail over same-sex desires or feelings that they were born the wrong sex.

The measure is quietly making its way to the state senate, for the next phase in implementation. To assuage the concerns now being voiced about the potential to outlaw the Bible and other faith-based material, “fact-checkers” cite that religious texts aren’t mentioned. The Federalist contributor Robert Gagnon explains why this approach is sneaky:

Read the bill. There is no religious exemption. There is no restriction to mental health professionals. There is not even a restriction to claims about changing a person’s sexual orientation or transgender feelings in whole or part. The bill is quite clear that any “efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions” are included in the ban on attempts to change a person’s “sexual orientation.”

So you would be violating the law if you advertise that Christ can empower people not to engage in homosexual practice or not to identify as “gay” or “transgenderbecause such behaviors and self-identities are morally wrong, or if you offer to engage or actually engage in efforts to persuade people of Christ’s power to transform in this area, you will be in violation of California AB 2943, at least so long as your advertising or efforts involved in any way an exchange of money for goods or services.

Furthermore, like most progressive policies, the rules could end up hurting those it was intended to help.

The broad nature of AB 2943 also fails to consider those LGBT individuals who may seek help in their efforts to refrain from acting on certain inclinations. These individuals would be denied professional and personal help under AB 2943.

The policy would also affect transgender persons who later cease identifying with the opposite sex and wish to transition back to their biological gender. Under AB 2943, such individuals would be categorically denied the help and support they desire.

Should this bill be signed into law, there is a little hope that the rest of the nation will be spared further California insanity. Another #CalExit proposal has now been cleared for the signature gathering process.

Forthcoming Law In California Could Ban The Sale of Bibles In The State


Reported by

It could only happen in California but they are considering a law to make any book or reading material that advocates for traditional marriage and sexuality. That would include the Bible. 

So what’s going on in California follows a familiar pattern? Indoctrinating children, using violence to shut down your opponents and to intimidate them and now they’re ready to burn books. That’s exactly what Hitler did in the 1930s and anyone who is surprised by what is going on in California just hasn’t been paying attention.

Well, somebody better start paying attention and soon.

But what if someone decided for themselves that they want to change? A priest or a pastor could face legal consequences if they were to help them. In a normal state that wouldn’t be a worry but this is California and if you believe they wouldn’t face charges, you are sadly mistaken.

They will never miss a chance to bash God and religion.

From The Conservative Tribune

Shockingly, the proposed law could even be construed to make it illegal to sell Bibles, since they include verses that the far left finds unacceptable.

Assembly Bill 2943 would make it an ‘unlawful business practice’ to engage in ‘a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer’ that advertise, offer to engage in, or do engage in ‘sexual orientation change efforts with an individual,’” explained National Review. 

That’s a lot of legalese to digest, so let’s break it down. What the bill basically says is that anything that can be seen as trying to impact a person’s sexual orientation would be illegal to sell or offer.

“The bill then defines ‘sexual orientation change efforts’ as ‘any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex,” continued National Review (emphasis added).
