The left’s subversive agenda only stops when the personal price for advancing it outweighs the political gain of pushing it.
For politicians, that’s as simple as throwing the bums out.
With teachers? The same policy seems pretty effective.
About two weeks, Amber Parker, a 53-year-old teacher at El Paso Franklin HighSchool chastised one of her students for using what she considered an insensitive term to describe a category of people who fit the classical definition of the phrase ‘sexual deviant’.
The video begins AFTER Diego has said the forbidden word, so it’s unclear if he used a formal term like pedophile, a colloquial like pervert or child predator, or one of a limitless variety of more colorful vulgarities.
Whatever the turn of phrase may have been, this teacher made it clear she did NOT want to teach in an environment that stigmatized the sexualization of children.[Editor’s Note: as this was taking place on a border town, where so many children are being trafficked and sold into sexual slavery, this might, in fact, be the PERFECT place to stigmatize the sexualization of children.]
While it probably took a different form than Andrew would have expected, we now live in the era Breitbart envisioned in which every citizen is a journalist with a TV studio in his pocket.
A statement made by a teacher in the classroom that might once have merely raised eyebrows, received a couple of parental complaints, or possibly a ‘stern talking to’ by a supervisor was caught on video. It went viral. This is what people saw:

“Stop it Diego, we’re not going to call them that. We’re going to call them MAPs. No. So don’t judge people because they want to have sex with a 5 year old.”
Something about that lesson didn’t sit well with the public.
Instead of a stern talking to, things escalated.
It led to a vote by the board to terminate her. She is on administrative leave while her appeals process works itself out.
There is one caveat to this story, one that will come up in appeals. It’s one those of us who have been on the blunt end of cancel culture’s pool cue know all too well.
She claims that this short snippet lacks the proper context, and what she was actually teaching was something different from what the clip would make it appear.
This is a real possibility, and has been affirmed by at least one student.
But that, too, was taken into consideration before the decision was made to kick her to the curb.
The incident occurred last week, according to the Daily Mail, and was reportedly part of a class discussion ahead of their reading of The Crucible by Arthur Miller.
School board trustee Daniel Call initially expressed support for Parker, expressing the belief that she was playing Devil’s advocate in the debate, but reversed his position after the investigation, telling KFOX14 that “[a]ny reasonable person that heard what the seven trustees heard would’ve voted to terminate Amber Parker.” — JustTheNews
However this eventually resolves itself, it’s enough to make someone pine for simpler times when the only time you would be concerned about Diego or Maps would be when the annoying tunes from your kids’ cartoons would get stuck in your head.
But with so many teachers on social media showing they have an open intention of subverting our children, having them know that they are being watched by people who care more about the students than they do about any one teacher’s job security is a healthy dose of reality in a world that looks increasingly unreal.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
