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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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 per-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.
I want to just remind parents of children in SD76, that what is happening at the Rocklin Academy School is exactly how currently written procedures in SD76 would handle a similar incident in SD76. There is no age appropriateness set in SD76, and therefor there is no clemency for young children who may find themselves afoul of the ludicrous assertion that they have bullied a fellow 6 year old if they ‘misgender’ them.
The Secretary and the Board have made it very clear through the petition process that the letter of the law is the standard by which they judge, not the intent or the purpose.
This article shows EXACTLY what David Eggen has asked all school districts to allow. SD76 has written in black and white both policy and procedure to permit this to go on in Medicine Hat. This is the essence of what the CPoSD76 are fighting. What this teacher did in California is the very definition of Sexual Interference and Abuse. As policy is written right now in SD76, it would be allowed, even encouraged, and there is nothing that you as a parent would be allowed to do about it. Not even if 2500 of you signed a petition wishing to express your concern. THAT is why the CPoSD76 are considering taking SD76 back to court. If your elected representative doesn’t care to hear from 1/3 to 1/2 of those who would vote in an election, you have a SERIOUS democratic and human rights issue on your hands.
When a block of voters the size of those that signed the petition circulated by the CPoSD76 are being ignored, it evidentially shows that “Children First” does not mean what you think it means. “Children First” means ripping children out from under parental oversight and authority, and either placing them under the ‘care’ of unqualified admin who think it is their right to traumatize children with deeply disturbing adult cultural trends, or asking these immature, undeveloped children how they think they should be educated. “Children First” means the children are in charge.
Your authority as a parent is under attack. Not just in Alberta, at a provincial level, but at a district level. For all the talk of ‘meeting’ with concerned parents;
SD76 has had 18 months to clarify these issues, and we have seen none. Sure I might have been told one or two answers personally, but according to CHAT and SD76’s Chairman, I’ve defamed them, so why would they make it my job to inform parents of what their position is. Again, according to them, I can’t accurately convey their position. Besides, aren’t public statements the Chairman’s job?
Way back in March 2016 I referred to the study undertaken in Sweden that is mentioned in the above link. I even told Trustees in SD76 about it. The response? Crickets. When I say Policy 622 endorses abuse, I mean it. Pushing Transgenderism on children, and forcing School Staff to accept it unquestionably, is without a doubt, child abuse. Death is a real probable outcome to lying to a child that they can change their gender. To promote such a policy, and to refuse to acknowledge the risks, or hear counter arguments is, like I said, the very definition of bigotry. Anti-bullying policies are laudable, but they must prevent bullying of all types, and can not dictate a forced acceptance of reckless and dangerous behaviours or believes. In such a case, the bullied become the bully and adherence is out of fear, not acceptance or understanding. Is that what we want our children to learn? To fear those that are different to them? Policies like 622 are not combating ‘transphobia,’ they are creating it. Except it isn’t an irrational fear, it is a justified fear that any wrong pronoun used, or out of context comment can ruin your life, as the LGBT™ inquisition will come down on you without mercy, compassion, logic, or reason. They will come and beat you into submission through school district endorsed courts of ‘social justice’. They will label you for the rest of your life as an LGBT™ ‘hater,’ make you take ‘sensitivity’ training at re-education centers, and exclude you from any prestigious higher education. These are not exaggerations, these are actions that have actually been taken against people who question the LGBT™. You have to look no further than the ridiculous accusations against me by the media. Any and all resistance must be silenced with extreme prejudice. Let’s get back to the table, and discuss a policy that provides real direction and protection for ALL children from ALL kinds of bullying.
June 7, 2017 Rick Massini Board Chair Medicine Hat School District 76 601 1 Ave. S.W. Medicine Hat, AB T1A 4Y7
An open letter to the Board of Trustees of Medicine Hat School District #76
Dear Rick Massini,
For the past 15 months the Concerned Parents of SD76 have indicated to the Board our concerns over the wording and procedures for SD76’s policy 621 and 622. In February 2016, when more than 20 people showed up for the February Board meeting, Trustees made note of the unusually large crowd. In the months that followed, that crowd size only increased, and that gave significant indication to the Board that those parents had growing concerns, that were not resolved.
In March 2016, through the presentations of four different delegations, parents made clear the broad nature of their concerns. Parents continued to share yet more concerns with the board after the March 2016 Special meeting to pass 621 & 622. Throughout that meeting no one engaged in bullying or harassment. Parents simply had questions and concerns that they did not feel had been answered in the policies. Parents were then promised a Town Hall, where by they could express those concerns, and ask their questions.
Both parents and electorate were deeply disappointed when it was revealed to them in May of 2016 that they would not have a Town Hall, but instead a meeting restricted to small group discussions with other parents. Discussions where no questions could be asked of the Trustees, and no answers would be provided. Parents were in fact given the questions that they were to answer.
Parents and electorate, then feeling snubbed and condescended to, understood that they had no other recourse but to utilize Section 269 of the School act, to submit a petition calling for a public meeting. Section 269 of the Alberta School Act had never been utilized before in SD76, and had rarely been drawn on in other districts of Alberta. A section specifically designed to allow parents and electorate to force a Board to be held to account by the public, when they feel they have no other recourse.
Parents didn’t just want to drop cards into a suggestion box. They wanted to have answers to clear inconsistencies with the policies and the recommended guidelines coming from Alberta Education. When the Secretary rejected the petition in September 2016 and refused to give clarifications, stating that he was not going to “spend any more time on this,” it was clear that the matter had to go to the courts; in order to get a fair hearing.
The only way for the signatories to get the clarification that they were refused, was to appeal as was their right under the School Act. By following the process under the law, parents and electorate were able to obtain 4 key clarifications, that otherwise would have been unobtainable: the Secretary was forced to provide the clarifications he had previously refused to give; the matter of the signatures that only had postal codes was firmly resolved, with the Justice stating that the parents had a “reasonable interpretation” to expect them to be accepted, despite ultimately being told they needed to be completed/corrected; precedence was established to state that if a petition seeks to be evaluated for the “25% of the parents in a school” clause, then school information needs to be given by the signatories; most importantly the districts lawyer informed the Justice that our petition could be amended to correct deficiencies and that there was no time limit, with the Justice even referencing those statements in paragraph 18 of his ruling. Justice Tilleman also made it clear during the appeal that the petition was the property of the submitter, and that it should be returned to them upon request.
In the weeks following Justice Tilleman’s decision, parents in SD76 have diligently set about to correct the deficiencies outlined by the Justice. In doing so, 300 new signatures have been obtained thus far, and a substantial number of the ‘postal code’ signatures have been corrected. There is an expectation that an amended petition would meet the requirements under the School Act; to call a public meeting as outlined on the petition. Parents and electorate of SD76 are at a junction, and we are offering to let the Board choose the path taken.
Since the Board decided to pursue a Bill of Costs from Mr. Williamson, the Parents decided that they would not seek to have the board attend a Concerned Parents of SD76 group meeting. The Parents do not believe that a concern by the chair of the Board over “setting a precedent” was sufficient justification to pursue costs. The now 2300+ tax paying electorate who have signed the petition do not think it was a waste of their tax dollars to call a public meeting, nor do they feel it was a waste of their time to force the clarifications via appeal that had been refused by the Secretary. The entire process could have been avoided had the Board simply been willing to have official interactive dialogue with concerned parents.
At this point, considering the position that SD76 has taken, there are only two possible paths forward: Amend the petition and have the process proceed under the School Act, with all the formal procedures that accompany that; or, work with the Board to see an agreeable formal interactive meeting between concerned parents and the Board.
The Parents understand that the Board have some concerns with security and conduct at such a meeting. Parents do not wish to see such a meeting hijacked by activists, lobby groups, or media frenzy any more than the Board does. The Parents are willing to work out a format with the board that would see both parties concerns mitigated, as long as such a meeting would see both the policy concerns of the parents and the responses of the Board to those concerns recorded into the public record.
We respectfully request that the Board provide an answer as to how they would like to proceed by June 12th, 2017.
