People looking how to stand against the tyranny of local, state and federal government need look no further than the courageous parents who engaged the Loudoun County, Va., school board for their anti-American, anti-student, and anti-education actions. The brouhaha began over a policy trampling religious rights requiring teachers to use LGBTQ promoted pronouns and students using bathrooms of the sex they “identified with.” Then a young lady was raped by a boy in the girls’ restroom, the school board cover up and denial of it, the Biden Administration saying it would sic the FBI on dissenting parents for being domestic terrorists, and a former president saying it’s much ado about nothing.
Loudoun County has since become front and center in the state’s governor’s race. Democrat former governor Terry McAuliffe, a former Clinton political operative, is on video tape in a debate saying that he doesn’t think parents should tell schools what they can teach. His opponent, Glenn Younkin disagrees. Enter former president Barak Obama on the campaign trail for McAuliffe. Over the weekend, Obama, instead of empathizing with the girl who was raped, referred generally to the Loudoun County controversy, saying, “We don’t have time to be wasted on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage, the right-wing media’s pedals to juice their ratings.” Really? So much for believing victims.
Well, the object of the fake outrage and phony culture war was found guilty by Pamela Brooks, the chief judge of the county’s Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. The boy was convicted on one count of forcible sodomy and one count of forcible fellatio, both felonies. Sentencing was delayed because there is another case where the same boy is charged with sexually assaulting another student at another Loudoun County school. Can’t discuss why boys using girls bathrooms is a bad policy, according to Obama and McAuliffe, because it’s a waste of time. What a nightmare. Moreover, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) wrote a letter to the Biden Administration asking that dissenting parents be treated the same as domestic terrorists.
The NSBA letter prompted US Attorney General Merrick Garland to waste no time in demanding the FBI discourage, identify and prosecuted threatening and dissenting parents. Then emails obtained by Parents Defending Education revealed that NSBA had been in talks with the White House for several weeks, raising suspicion of collusion. Merrick then denied that parents would be treated as domestic terrorists and the NSBA issued an apology. Obama, however, hasn’t apologized for his insensitive and self-righteous remarks. This is an example of how when people stand in the gap, the Lord can expose the treachery of a school board, a gubernatorial candidate, a former president, a national association, the Attorney General, and the current president. Ephesians 6:13, …”and having done all, to stand.” May we all be so bold.
