Our media ‘betters’ have spent much of the past year telling us exactly what the difference was between ‘peaceful’ and ‘violent’ protests. Does this look ‘unruly’ to you?
The public is still making their voices heard in the public consultation portion of the Loudoun County School Board meetings, but the board does not seem very interested in hearing what the parents have to say.
The issues at hand were contentious, further complicated by the fact that the board will be appealing a court decision to order the reinstatement of a teacher, Tanner Cross, who gave his personal opinion on the proposed changes to policy, and his objections based on both compassionate and religious freedom grounds. (We covered that story here: Court Orders School To Reinstate Teacher Suspended For Questioning Trans Policy In Townhall Meeting)
The school board is also facing a recall effort.
Parents came up weighing in on both sides of the issue, but things got heated when one parent took a direct swipe at Christian beliefs.
The first half-dozen speakers were in support of policy proposal 8040, but fireworks erupted when the seventh, who identified herself as the mother of a transgender Loudoun student, was booed after saying “hate” was “dripping from the followers of Jesus in this room” – a swipe at Christian parents in the district who have argued that transgender discussions should be held at home and not in public school.
The board called a 5-minute recess to let things cool off.
After the recess, board chair Brenda Sheridan said members had voted unanimously to end public comment if the room erupted again. —FoxNews
Does anyone really believe the camera would have been turned if more protesters had backed the *other* cause?

Their decision to end comment came back to haunt them shortly.
Very ‘vigourous’ discussion continued, until what ultimately proved to be the final speaker stood up to address the gathering, only to be cut short.
Former state Sen. Dick Black, a Republican, excoriated the board over its treatment of Cross and allegations that progressive community members had organized a list of their conservative neighbors to harass and publicly shame. The chamber erupted in cheers, prompting the board to vote 9-0 to end public comment for the rest of the meeting – which led to loud chants of “Shame on you” directed at the board and demands that members resign. —FoxNews
This was his speech, and the crowd response when his mic was cut:
Loudoun County School Board— at the center of controversy surrounding CRT— just silenced parents delivering scathing speeches against them by suddenly ending the public comment portion of the meeting set to continue for hours.

Here are some video clips from what happened next in the evening.
Reaction to the announcement by the board that the meeting was over and the public did not disperse, it would be considered an unlawful assembly.

Here is the public singing the Star-Spangled Banner as the board turned tail and left.

According to the Supreme Court past findings, this is probably illegal. https://t.co/4w6QAhnRNs

We’d have to ask the ‘protest experts’ on CNN what went wrong here — maybe their problem was that they were TOO peaceful? If only they’d thrown a couple of Molotov Cocktails into some squad cars, maybe Kamala would already be on the phone, helping these guys raise bail.
Check out ClashRadio for more wit and wisdom from ClashDaily’s Big Dawg. While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
