"Orate" is the third in a series of 4 posts about the Concerned Parents of SD76 C.P.O.S. plan going forward. In case you missed the first and second, you can read Create and Protect by clicking on their titles.
I'm a couple weeks later than I was planning on this one. In general I try to keep to a schedule of how I post, but I also need to keep watch of the ebb and flow what is going on in culture. In the two years since I've started doing this, writing things for public view, I've noticed that their are opportune moments to share about any given topic. I've also come to understand what writers block and inspiration really are. Something I've never really comprehended before.
In preparation for writing about what the "Orate" prong of the plan was all about, I decided I should make sure I orate it very well. As the day approached for my intended post, I was at a loss as to how to open it. How to really hit home the importance of this prong of the plan, and what the CPoSD76 were doing about it. Then Michael Knowles released this video through PragerU, and I had it. Please watch/listen to it in it's entirety, and then continue on with this post. It's less than 5 minutes of your time.
Did you watch/listen to it? I mean it. All of it. It is important, for the rest of this post, and for understanding the "Orate" prong of the plan. OK, I believe you. I have faith that your attention span is long enough to get to the heart of what I'm saying. Can I make one more request of you? Keep track of how many times and at what you scoff, or roll your eyes at in what I write. It's relevant.
Equality of the 'commoner' is so deeply ingrained in their thinking, that they think of you as being on par with the extreme minority of parents who are abjectly abusive morons.
Were you slightly offended by my previous paragraph? It's OK if you were. I didn't mean to insult or offend, but it was intentional. I needed you to be incited enough to pay attention. That is how officials see you though. They think of you as too stupid or lazy to bother concerning yourself with the issues of the day. Informed Public vs. Mass Population. Politicians, bureaucrats, administrations, friends, acquaintances, associates. They have all thought this, or said it (behind closed doors.) I too have thought this at times, though I tell myself that those people are fewer in number than the stereotype makes it out to be. You may be saying to yourself, "no, I don't think they believe that."
Do you remember Mitt Romney saying that 47% of Americans are lazy moochers? The number of people in positions who have said something similar to me, or in my presence would shock you. The Evidence is all around you. You're to dumb to be trusted to get help breast feeding your children, so we have to have government programs to show you, and the school district should be in charge of that. After all, early learning is crucial to proper child development. Can't be trusted to do that at home yourself though, got to have day care and pre-school programs, again run by the government, to make sure they get the "skin on skin" and "social skills" that they would never get from the negligent (publicly educated) philistine parents at home. Worst one of all, you can't know your kids are 'trans' or homosexual, and they must be sent to a secret government sex club, because you are more likely to beat them with jumper cables as backward bigoted hicks, than guide them as compassionate, caring, mature adult parents. Do you see just how low of an opinion of you they have? Equality of the 'commoner' is so deeply ingrained in their thinking, that they think of you as being on par with the extreme minority of parents who are abjectly abusive morons.
Propaganda is never about what is best, it is about manipulation and power.
At this point you are questioning how this is going to tie into "Orate." Well, here is the connection: How do they orate with you? How do they communicate their intentions, their policies. What words do they use? How do they use them? How have you understood them?
Deep down, subconsciously, they know the masses are not as stupid as they are made out to be. They know that their agendas and intent would never fly, if they communicated, or 'orated' them using plane language that everyone understood. They must twist and subvert, lie and deceive. They must propagandize. Did you know that the Nazis and the Soviets had official branches of government, wholly dedicated to this art of deception? North Korea has painted store fronts to deceive visitors into thinking that they have a thriving economy. Propaganda is never about what is best, it is about manipulation and power.
I'm reminded of a scene from an early episode of "The Simpsons," where an alien monster has inhabited the body of Bill Clinton, in order to become President. During a debate 'Kang' says:
"My fellow Americans, as a young boy I to dreamed of being a baseball. But tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward. Upward, not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom."
Afterward the crowd showers him with adulation. Great for a chuckle, but the reality of the nonsense being spewed in politics and culture is not all that dissimilar, and to our utter shame, perfectly applicable to today. Today you can be a baseball, as long as you identify as such, and everyone must affirm it. We truly are twirling upward, not forward in our thinking, in a dizzying psychoses of freedom, defined through slavery. Which, by the way is how that episode ends. With the enslavement of humanity under the aliens.
The "Orate" prong is all about, unpacking and revealing the deceptions replete in today's politics and culture, that are being poured into education.
This is what the "Orate" prong is all about, unpacking and revealing the deceptions replete in today's politics and culture, that are being poured into education. The hope is to open a few eyes, draw awareness, and maybe even change a few minds, or understandings of what is actually going on. What is the actual end game.
Throughout my writings, musings, or rants, however you choose to perceive them, it has been my goal to give you objective truth. Aside from trying to 'activate' you, as they say, I have not been trying to manipulate you into thinking like me. Yes, I've said some startling things. Yes, I've been course, and yes, I've maybe not done it in the most affective way, or you have taken it in a way I did not intend, but it has always been with the hope of making education better for our children, protecting them from harm, and revealing the objective truth.
I will always welcome honest criticism and feedback on what I write, and as the primary voice for the Concerned Parents of SD76, I understand the gravity of the words I use on perceptions of the group as a whole, and so I welcome feedback, and corrections. One thing I will never change or apologize for though is the truth.
In conclusion, the "Orate" prong of the plan is to continue to write and share important info with you on this site. To set up public events in which specific topics can be unpacked and discussed. To educate the public on the rhetoric being used against them to both placate and agitate, and to indoctrinate. So please read up on what is available here, as well as, I highly recommend unsafeschools.ca. What is written there will educate you to some of the true motives and intentions of the actions taken by Alberta Education.
The second prong of the CPoSD76 C.P.O.S. plan that I will be going over in this post is the "Create" prong. It seems fitting to go over it the day before Board of SD76 has their Monthly board meeting. I get to give you a pre-Board meeting run down, but also show how this portion of the C.P.O.S plan fits in with policy development.
The purpose of the "Create" prong of the C.P.O.S. plan is to:
Develop and create policy for SD76, Alberta Education, and provincial government that we believe would satisfy the requirements of current legislation, that also addresses our concerns, and present it as an alternative.
The goal is not to rewrite every policy, but to provide the School Board with what we, the parents, would like to see implemented in the areas that they are concerned about. As we all saw with policy 621 & 622 the Board was unwilling to trust the public to select a committee to put together policy recommendations on their own. Instead, according to the Chairman of the Board, they chose to allegedly blow $25,000 to prevent parents from being heard. The Coordinating Committee knew best.
That is why the first action of the "Create" prong will be to develop the Safe & Caring policy that 'could have been.' (Minus the provisions of the illegal post 622, Bill-24.) The exact process of the creation of this policy recommendation will be posted on the "Create" page most likely early May. The process will suffice to say include an opportunity for general public input, and the selection of a committee to compile that input into a cohesive policy recommendation.
Other than the rejection of public input by the Board for 621 & 622, this prong of C.P.O.S. and the resulting policy recommendation is necessary because the current process in SD76 is flawed. It is an overly bureaucratic top down system, that limits dissension and independent thought. Select administration, who many in the process chain are beholden to, (who have already proven have no qualms with lording that threat of authority over them,) must play politic in order to keep their careers on track, and are not free to give honest policy recommendation based on their own personal conscience believes. This intimidation and suppression of freedom of conscience has infested the ATA, ASBA, and Alberta Education.
I could regale you with all the proof of the cracks in the system, and the lengths they are willing to go to suppress parental input, but I won't. You can read through the history to find that. No, instead I'll just leave this screen shot of an ATA official, on Friday the 20th, 2018, attempting to discredit the #SexEdSitOut. As well as a break down of this month's Board Meeting agenda and how it's format has changed over the last few months to limit your knowledge of what is going on in this district. If you are not interested in that, you can stop reading now. I will not be writing anything further on the C.P.O.S. plan in this post.
On the Agenda for April 2018's public (remember that word, public,) Board meeting is some thank you correspondence, Roy Wilson National Winners for the "My Parks Pass" contest, another field trip application, Connaught School attendance boundaries, the final approval for a field trip to Florida, and the presentation of the minutes to the Coordinating Committee (CC), before moving to in-camera "Committee of the Whole."
The CC minutes contain a brief list of all policies being reviewed, and any new, or amendment recommendations to the board. The CC meetings are not open to the public, and how a parent is supposed to get a change recommendation actually brought forward at one of these meetings is unknown even to most parent councils. (Your concern, or recommendation needs to be approved as 'valid' by your parent/school council, and then approved as 'valid' at the council of councils. Attendance at which is by invitation.)
Now after the minutes of the CC are seen by the Board, they are given draft proposals of the policy change. In the past, they could be viewed by the public, as attachments to the meeting's documents. Curiously, I don't see those this time. No mind, I'm sure they will be available at the May Board meeting, as the drafts have to be presented before they can be voted on. So if parents hope to know what may very well become policy, before it actually becomes policy, you best attend the May meeting.
But this process with the CC isn't the only curious thing happening with the Board in the last 2 years. In 2016, some events that showed an embarrassing lack of knowledge of FOIP and what exactly 'public' meant at a meeting, had the board institute a no recording policy. The policy was instituted under the ridiculous pretense that they couldn't "execute their duties," unless those people recording were friendly and favorable to the board.
The no recording policy also lead to more 'discussions' going on during in-camera, "committee of the whole," portions of the 'public' meetings. These discussions, though I'm not privy to them, seem to include a lot of talk that has not to do with the public meeting, or if it does, then the Board is violating the School Act. Well, either way, they are still violating a technical detail of the Act. Something, from the petition challenge, they supposedly care a great deal about not doing.
The Board, for as long as I've followed/attended the meetings, has been giving reports on how the Trustees have been involved in the activities of the districts. These reports have been on the minutes and the agendas of the meetings for the last couple of years. February 2018's public meeting had it on the agenda. The minutes state that no reports were given. Curiously, the minutes don't talk about a motion to discontinue this practice. March's meeting did not have the reports on the agenda. So I am to assume that they stopped giving them. Now here is the funny thing, the Board can't simply change it's practice without discussing it, nor can they do so without informing the public. It's written right in the School Act.
Now, that practice may have been only for a designated time frame, but that isn't noted in the minutes. No discussion or decision about whether it should be continued or ceased is recorded. The reports were simply not given in February, and then no longer there in March. So what happened? I can surmise two possible explanations.
One, it was discussed, but it wasn't recorded in the minutes. If so, that is a failing of the minutes taking. Since the board must vote on the adoption of the previous meeting's minutes, that means they knew about the error, and chose to keep it out anyway. Thus showing the board willfully violated the School Act and intends to keep decisions on district governance and agenda secret from the public. What else are they not putting in the minutes?
Two, it was discussed in the in-camera session, after the specified period in the agenda, and a decision was made to stop giving the reports. Yet, they did not inform the public, or at least record that they informed the public. Thus violating the School Act once again, and willfully keeping pertinent information from the public.
You see, the School Act very carefully outlines what in-camera discussions are meant to be used for. The in-camera sessions, according to the School Act, which is the actual law, states that they are to be used to discuss confidential matter such as budget decisions, land use, discipline, and employment negotiations. They are given some latitude with respect to other 'confidential' matters. Given the track record on understanding FOIP, I'm not entirely confident they believe the word confidential means what we believe it means.
Regardless of how the Board defines confidential, the School Act further stipulates that ANY decision of the board, made in-camera, must be released to the public, and that at any public meeting that has gone in-camera must be reopened to the public, and the decision disseminated. Not a single meeting that I have gone to, has done this. Not one. Yes, they re-opened the meeting to the public, but they never told the public it was reconvened, nor what their decision was. You only ever had vague reference to it in the minutes. I waited for nearly an hour at more than one meeting to see if they would open it up to the public again. Never happened.
According to the March minutes, the public meeting was 25 minutes long before going in-camera, and then 93 minutes later it was allegedly opened up to the public and a decision of approval was made on "Property Matter #2018-04." What Property Matter #2018-04 is, I have no idea, but no reasonable member of the public could be expected to wait outside the room for 93 minutes, hoping to be let back in to witness the conclusion, nor what an approval of the property matter even means for the district. Given the established pattern, of not letting the public know the meeting was re-opened, I'm doubtful they even attempted.
We are only 6 months into the new school board, and between the lack of recording, the limits on documents provided regarding the CC, the generic and incomplete minutes, the unreasonable wait times, and unreasonable expectations of confidentiality, I'm not hopeful that this board is going to be anymore accountable or transparent to the public than the last. I highly recommend people attend tomorrow's April 24th Board Meeting. Something smells, and I intend on getting to the bottom of it.
In my last post, I stated that the CPoSD76 were working on a plan to help combat the clearly insidious intentions of Alberta Public Education to indoctrinate and sexualize our children with their twisted idea of ethics and sexuality.
The plan is being called CPOS. Create, protect, orate, and solidify. ... Over the next Month, I will be making 4 separate posts about what exactly each prong of the ‘4orked’ plan is, and how the coalition hopes to implement it. For now though, there are two prongs you can get started on yourself.
This post is the first of 4 that go into detail of what the collaborative plan of the CPoSD76 is. As also mentioned earlier, this is a forked plan, with multiple facets happening simultaneously. Although the acronym, C.P.O.S., may be in a particular order, the execution of it may happen in a different order.
Today's post is about the "Protect" portion:
As was noted in my comment in the last post, "Life Site" News published an article (Mat Walsh at The Daily Wire also published about it) about how parents are pulling their children out of school to protest the grotesque sexualization of children from k-12 in public education around the globe.
Protect: April 23rd, 2018 is international walk out day to protest the obscene, abusive, bigoted, and abhorrent sex education that is being forced in schools around the world. (Bill-24 provides no limits to the material that your child can be exposed to at school.) I encourage every parent, who’s children are not home schooled, to pull their child out of school on April 23rd. Explain that you do not support the sexualization of our children for the satisfaction of adults with unhealthy obsessions over the sexual development of other people’s pre-pubescent children, that Bill-24 is an unconstitutional violation of human rights, and that parents have first discretion and authority over their children and their education, not the government. Do this whether your school has supported the family or not, as a show of solidarity to those who have not had the ability or choice to send their children to a school that supports their rights.
For the U.S., it is "Comprehensive Sex Education," for Australia it is "Safe Schools," for British Columbia it is "SOGI 123", and of course for Alberta it is the Sex Clubs with ultimate power, the GSAs. The details of the #SexEdSitOut are available here, and you can add your city, and sign a petition etc. I fully endorse this sit out, and the goals are in line with the essential intent of the "Protect" phase of the C.P.O.S. plan. I intend on keeping my kids home on the 23rd, and a generic outline for an e-mail you can send to your child's principal is available here. (Be sure to CC any other administrative officiall that would need to know of your child(ren)s absence.)
Although my child's school is not currently supporting the sexualization of minors, they are under the thumb of SD76's jurisdiction, and that can be forced to change at any moment. I am however pulling my child out in an act of solidarity for those who's children are being exposed to this obscene material and teaching, and as an act to draw awareness to the actions and intent of Alberta Education. I encourage you to do so as well.
Another action you can take to "Protect" your children from the errant direction of Alberta's public education, that is also inline with the principle of CPoSD76 C.P.O.S. plan, is to support the challenge of Bill 24. On April 5th, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms filed a court application challenging Bill-24. Bill-24 gives GSAs the power to form and operate without any oversight, and with the power to teach literally anything. Not only without your consent as a parent, but without even your knowledge of it. You can protect your children from this malicious law by spreading word of it and it's challenge in court.
I heard directly from John Carpay, that media is minimizing coverage of this in an attempt to keep the public ignorant of the facts, and the challenge. You can counter this be sharing the links provided in the Parent Watch Forum, and by telling as many people as possible about what is going on. One of the groups on the court challenge is Parents for Choice in Education, and you can find out more and support their efforts here. The CPoSD76 are also working with the JCCF to support in any way they can, and may be playing a more active and intentional part in the challenge going forward. One final action you can take is to make a donation to the JCCF to aid in the financial burden of challenging the law in court.
This brings us finally to the specific details of the "Protect" prong of the C.P.O.S. plan. These details will be available via a permanent page in the top menu later [this week].
Protect our children from current curriculum, policy, and legislation that undermines the family, and the security or safety of our children through; legal and peaceful protest and/or walkouts, whistle blower or accountability procedures, and assistance for parents and students to navigate the bureaucratic educational system.
The "Protect" page will have a list of current protective actions that the CPoSD76 are undertaking. (Including the two listed above.) The details of how you can participate in those actions will vary depending on action being undertaken.
Some things that are in the works, besides the two mentioned above are:
A list of keywords and phrases that parents need to be aware of, and what actions may be necessary should those phrases come up in a classroom.
A pledge to pull your child, or instruct them to leave a class should an inappropriate topic be brought up in class. Along with instructions on how to inform the teachers on the rational.
A hotline (email or phone is still to be determined) that parents can contact should a 'trigger' topic be discussed, or an incident of prejudice or bias against a student, teacher or staff member, or parent that occur within the district; this would also be available for whistle blowers to expose corruption, malfeasance, or professional incompetence with the district. The CPoSD76 would then help the whistle blower follow proper channels and get protections for the information they are divulging.
Simple forms that individuals can fill out, if they wish to request assistance in navigating bureaucracy, knowing specific rights on issues, or understanding policy.
This list is not exhaustive, and is subject to fluctuations. The CPoSD76 is of course open to feed back and improvement, and if you wish to help or participate in any way, please feel free to contact us for more information.
On Tuesday February 6th I shared on my public Facebook page, an article about a Father Daughter dance at a school in Statin Island that was canceled because of gender neutral policies. I made a reference to how it was more evidence that the LGBT™ hate the family. Which they do, and the hate crimes against the family continue to mount, but I'm getting off track here....
I'm sure you all have either seen or heard our Prime Minister's ridiculous assertion that "mankind" be replaced with "peoplekind," and then his double down absurdity that he was joking. Just ignore his past behaviour of declaring himself a Feminist, that his sons suffer from toxic masculinity, that he pushed through C-16, a law about forcing a change in language, or his demand that all Canadians swear allegiance to his party's believe that baby murder is OK. Ignore all that. Ignore that he has since told government employees that they are not alowed to call people Mr., Mrs., or Miss., and that Father and Mother are outlawed terms. Trudeau was tooaootally joking.
"It was a joke." - Trudeau
We are seeing a trend. A very unsettling trend. A trend descending into madness and tyranny, and to be frank, I'm getting tired of pulling peoples heads out of the ground. Look, I get it, you are tired. You are busy. You are trying to eek out a living, and you are doing the best you can to provide for your family and educate your kids. I had a resident recently say, "We need to get these people voted out." We just had an election, and the majority kept the status quo. The cold hard reality is, most of you aren't helping the situation. The last school municipal election saw 6000 votes. Out of 60,000? Nearly three times that voted for city council. Are you telling me you could get out to vote for a mayor, but not a school board? I'm hearing the Catholic Board vote numbers were just as abysmal. Lets take the two combined. Do you expect me to believe that only 20% of the population of Medicine Hat has kids? (Ignoring that you don't have to have kids to vote for a school board.) The government isn't going to leave you alone, they are already going after your kids.
I can't put it any other way. If you didn't vote, you have contributed to the problem. But lets not cry over spilled milk. The past is the past, and although we need to learn from it, (which AB Ed doesn't seem to be able or want to do,) we do not need to dwell on it. So, how can you help, and how can you fix this?
How can you help. How can you fix this?
Well first, admit and recognize the problem. What exactly is the problem you ask? Well you could read through the old post on here to learn in more detail, but it can be summed up in one word. Pernicious. You see, over the last couple of years, I have struggled to find language that can get my point across, make people uncomfortable enough to pay attention, and drive people to action. The 'left' has done such a fine job in redefining everything from lying, to rape, that it is near impossible to have an intelligent conversation anymore. Truth isn't even THE truth anymore, it is YOUR truth.
So in my effort to stay informed and educated on world events that will affect my family, I came across a video clip from Fox News Insider. In which Jordan Peterson is being interviewed about the range of topics I've mentioned above (Trudeau, Peoplekind, Father Daughter Dances, Ze, Zer, and Zem). At one point while talking about policy to enforce language, he states
"It is not compassion and care that is driving this. It is the desire to put forward a very pernicious ideology." - Jordan Peterson
It struck me. There is the perfect word to describe the problem in our school district, and Alberta Education as a whole. Best of all, untainted by the language jackboots. But I better give you the definition before I continue, or they may have a chance to defile it.
"Definition of pernicious
1 : highly injurious or destructive : deadly
2 archaic : wicked" - Merriam-Webster
No word better describes the situation in Alberta Education.
David Eggen's Bill-24 was/is Pernicious.
Kris Well's handling of the GSA Network was Pernicious.
Eggen's attack on Wisdom Home School was Pernicious.
Rachel Notley's statements about Catholic education were Pernicious.
Alberta Health telling parents their 3 year old might be trans-gender is Pernicious.
The ASBA, PSBA, and ATA attack on school choice was Pernicious.
The deception of and lies told to parents by the Calgary, Lethbridge, and Medicine Hat School Board's was Pernicious.
The Guidelines to Best Practices (GTBP) are Pernicious.
The handling of SCHS Washroom issues is Pernicious.
The handling of bullying at Alexandra School is Pernicious. (They know what I am talking about.)
The unjust persecution of students who have refused the enlightenment of the LGTB™ at Medicine Hat High is Pernicious. (Again, they know what I am talking about.)
Honestly, I don't care if what I just said offends you. You should actually be offended by the obscene actions I've just listed. You should be irate. Blistering with intolerance. One does not tolerate if your child is shooting up with heroine in your home. That is what is happening with Alberta Education. The education minister, Guidelines to Best Practices, and the various local school boards are forcing your kids to adopt, celebrate and participate in a pernicious life of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse that will destroy their lives. It will remove any chance of them being content with their bodies, having healthy long term relationships with partners, and in 2/3rds of the education, remove any hope of having children....unless of course they take the children from the parents that wouldn't push this pernicious life.
Evil should never be tolerated, no matter how much you dress it up.
The parent council of Ross Glen Elementary told me a few months ago that the Alberta Health Services resource on sex and sexuality was a great source of help for parents, and that is why they were endorsing and promoting it at the school. As I told them, a resource that talks about preventing STD/Is, but then says a 3 year old can be trans-gender, is a terrible resource. (It is also child abuse.) It shows that AHS doesn't even understand basic human biology, medicine, or pediatric development. AHS, is there by the least competent organization to be educating on sexual health.
Hitler took Germany out of the worst economic disaster in it's history and turned into a super power. But we don't have children read "Mein Kampf" in school, or recommend it as reading material for political office. The Guidelines to Best Practices may say 'bullying' is bad, and tell you to treat everyone equally, but when they say this is done by making the sexually 'diverse' more equal than everyone else, and saying that uncles who identify as aunts should be allowed in the change room with nieces, you need to reevaluate it's value as a whole. I mean, it's first version recommended that students call each other comrade. Comrade. That isn't a great resource, it is trash with a bow on top. At that point you start over, with less self-serving individuals developing it. Evil should never be tolerated, no matter how much you dress it up. If you can't cut the uncomfortable stuff out of the Bible, or the koran, you can't cut the uncomfortable stuff out of the GTPB. You adopt it as a whole, or not at all.
How do you stop this pernicious direction of the government?
The coming years are not going to be easy. We are stuck with essentially the same school board for the next three and a half years, and we have to put up with the tyranny of the NDP for the next one and a half at least. We know they are not above insulting, lying, harassing, and general childish tantrums, so how do you stop this pernicious direction of the government?
The Concerned Parents of SD76 have come up with a 4 pronged plan to help combat this pernicious governance, but it is going to take parents of conviction who are committed and willing to put the best interests of their children above all the threats, harassment, and general childish tantrums of the LGBT™, Alberta Education, the NDP and their (philosophical) hit squads in social/media.
The plan is being called CPOS. Create, protect, orate, and solidify. Ya, terrible acronym, but have you seen the current LGBT™ one? It has a 2 in it. So you will have to excuse me for not caring about how well it rolls off the tongue.
Over the next Month, I will be making 4 seperate posts about what exactly each prong of the '4orked' plan is, and how the coalition hopes to implement it. For now though, there are two prongs you can get started on yourself.
Explain that you do not support the sexualization of our children...
Protect: April 23rd, 2018 is international walk out day to protest the obscene, abusive, bigoted, and abhorrent sex education that is being forced in schools around the world. (Bill-24 provides no limits to the material that your child can be exposed to at school.) I encourage every parent, who's children are not home schooled, to pull their child out of school on April 23rd. Explain that you do not support the sexualization of our children for the satisfaction of adults with unhealthy obsessions over the sexual development of other people's pre-pubescent children, that Bill-24 is an unconstitutional violation of human rights, and that parents have first discretion and authority over their children and their education, not the government. Do this whether your school has supported the family or not, as a show of solidarity to those who have not had the ability or choice to send their children to a school that supports their rights.
Orate: Take the time April 23rd to educate yourself and others on the dangers of Bill-24, what is being taught in your district on gender identity and sexuality. Familiarize yourself with the details of your districts 'safe and caring' policy, and learn if it really is 'inclusive, equal, safe and caring'. Share what you learned on social media and at family outings. The time to keep silent has passed. Leaving them alone will not make them leave you alone. Living in a bubble will not help your children.
Let people know that Bill 24 is being challenged by over a dozen individuals and groups, and that the government is trying to cross a line that they "shall not pass."
Our governance and education is swiftly moving toward a tyrannical system of oppression and malevolent malfeasance, and we need to stand up to it, or face a generation or more of misery.
On March 22nd, Steven Crowder was live at SMU. After the show, a young man who identified as a protest sign asked if he should have kids in a time when you are accosted for your believes. Crowder at one point states that "Fear is not bad, how you handle it is."
I know all of you are afraid. I have been too. You think then when I took the petition to appeal at the Court of Queens Bench, the first challenge of it's kind in Canada, that I wasn't afraid? Do you think the School District didn't WANT me to be afraid? Why do you think they said they were going to come after me for 'hours of time' spent on evaluating the petition? Why do you think they threatened a teacher who witnessed the petition? How about the ridiculous accusation that somehow I was defaming an institution and a policy? They did this because, like every corrupt and dictatorial governing body in human history, they know that fear is the most likely tool to keep the populace in line.
So how do you know if you are handling the fear correctly? The way I measure it, is are you brave enough to risk your own health and reputation to protect and serve another, or are you taking the cowards route of saving your own skin?
John 15:13 - Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
If you are able to overcome your fear, to help another, than I say you are handling the fear correctly. Who is more deserving of selfless bravery than your children? Who better to stand up to than those too cowardly to protect your children from those who wish to harm or use them?
Don't forget, most times, they are more afraid of you, (or their superiors) than you are of them. Paranoia is fear on steroids, and who is more paranoid than a dictator afraid of losing their power. When you stand up to a bully, he realizes that fear can no longer be used against you, and he is the one who becomes afraid. There is no greater evidence of this, than to see how vilely they came after the Include Parents campaign, and the level of fear that was expressed at the thought of myself getting elected to the School Board. (They were really sweating that one.)
Take courage fellow parent, and don't take garbage from anyone. Your children are quite literally your birthright. Literally yours, by birth, and no sycophantic bureaucrat has any right to tell you how to raise them, especially when they want to subject them to abusive ideology like prepubescent transgenderism.
Take courage, or you just might find you have no children or grand children; whether by fear, by abusive sterilization, by suicide, or by tyrannical kidnapping.
