We didn’t start the culture war, but we are definitely in one. It is not being fought over national boundaries but over the hearts and minds of a generation.
Activists have taken hold of schools and curricula. They are becoming increasingly bold. And, to borrow the metaphor of invasive species in the wild, they will spread so long as they have no natural boundaries or predators to slow their growth.
The natural enemy of this particular invasive species has been emerging since the lockdowns made the problem clear. That natural enemy is concerned parents. Concerned parents rose up in Virginia, and they are rising up elsewhere, too.
As you can see from the highlighted words in the opening remarks on the complaint, (available here), they are not sugar-coating these allegations.
And in this instance, concerned parents took the
Clarke County, Nevada school district to court over the obscene content their children were forced to participate in.
What assignment was given to the teenage girls that caused such an offense?
Life Site reports as follows:
Kelly Hawes, the teenager’s drama teacher, required the student to memorize and perform the following explicit monologue in front of the class:
“I don’t love you. It’s not you, it’s just (looks down) your d***. I don’t like your d*** or any d*** in that case. I cheated Joe. We were long distance and I’m in college and me and this girl, my roommate, started having some drinks and you know, I thought it was a one-time thing but then we started going out for coffee, and started sleeping in the same bed. I never thought it would get this far but God [sic], it was like fireworks, and made me realize that with you it was always like a pencil sharpener that keeps getting jammed. I’ve tried to look at it from all different perspectives, but the truth is, I’m a f***ing lesbian. I’ll never love you or any man, or any f***ing d***. I hope you find a nice straight girl because that’s not me, and I’m tired of pretending that it is.”
Upon learning about the assignment, the student’s mother arranged a meeting with Joshua Hager, the school’s assistant principal. Hager promised to resolve the issue, meet with the student only in the company of a female administrator and update her parents about their meeting once it was over. However, the complaint states that he did not fulfill any of these promises.
During another meeting with Hager, principal Scott Walker, Hawes, and a school counselor, the teacher admitted to having assigned the sexualized material. All officials present eventually conceded to the fact that the student was forced to perform the monologue.
“Hawes’ sexual conduct and instruction was a gross violation of her professional responsibilities,” the complaint states. “Hawes’ acts constituted sexual grooming of her students, particularly R.E. [the plaintiffs’ daughter].” –LifeSite
When the outraged mother attempted to raise her complaint to the school board, her mic was cut because, they explained, ‘the statement was profane and improper for a public School Board Meeting’.
Shouldn’t that reaction to the mother reading a class assignment constitute some sort of a ‘clue’? Evidently not.
“Performing pornography should never be a required high school classroom assignment,” the complaint argues.
…According to the complaint, the defendants violated First Amendment rights by forcing the student to read words against her will as well as by denying her mother the opportunity to speak about the situation at a public meeting. The complaint further alleges that Hawes verbally harassed the student for reporting the incident and that the school district failed to protect the student from a teacher who caused her distress, which violates Title IX. — LifeSite
Court battles are exactly the weapon activists have unleashed against our side for years. It’s about time we use the law to enforce the law.
Punitive damages like the $50k these parents are demanding might be a good place to start.
