Anger Boils Up at Loudoun School Board Meeting Over ‘CRT Cancer’, ‘Transgender Radicalism’ – Parents Petition to Oust Chair
At a school board meeting in Loudoun County, VA, anger erupted Tuesday night after a group of parents demanded the chairman of the board’s resignation.
Parents are outraged by the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) for embracing liberal practices such as critical race theory, also known as CRT. Transgender activism has also been a source of contention for many in the district, along with the cover-up of sexual assault by a transgender teen in a school bathroom and then another school.
Many parents are against CRT, which they say is divisive and racist.
Dennis Ebersole, the father of three current students, including two daughters, said it was his first time speaking for the board but felt he could no longer sit on the sidelines.
“Parents are not leaving. Our numbers are only growing. There is no way parents and teachers can trust LCPS under the current leadership,” Ebersole told board members.
“You have lied to us over and over about CRT. You have lied to cover up sexual assault to promote your transgender radicalism,” he continued. “You have closed down public rallies without authority and you have demonized us as domestic terrorists. Enough is enough. The only way to heal this divided community and restore trust is to fire Inspector Ziglar and remove the board members who are responsible for this mess. have caused.”
Erin Dunbar, another parent, also told board members that CRT is “a cancerous tumor” and that “activist teachers are using it to indoctrinate hate in children.”
“Critical race theory is a Marxist philosophy and a cancer that spreads through vehicles that you spend my tax dollars on, like Second Step,” Dunbar said.
“You have activist teachers who use it to indoctrinate their hatred on children who are at the mercy of their authority. That is child abuse and you have no right to brainwash children into believing that their skin color trumps the power of constructive life choices,” he said. they. charged. “And we found your books in our libraries and they are laced with pedophilia and incest.”
The parent group Fight for Schools said it has collected more than 2,000 signatures to address legal challenges to remove several school board members, according to Fox News.
Megan Jenkins, executive director of Fight for Schools, told board members that the group had more than the required number of signatures for the petitions calling for its removal, the outlet reported.
“So I’m not going to encourage any of you to resign because being recalled and removed from office will be much more satisfying. See you in court,” she said.
Under Virginia law, recall requests must be signed by residents of the officer’s jurisdiction equal to 10% of the votes cast in the last election to that office, Ballotpedia said.
