Christo-fascists making moves on FL school boards

GUEST
Attacking Proud Boys does a disservice to caring school parents

I wear my heart and my convictions on my sleeve. I will not back down from that which is worth fighting for.

First, I am a God-fearing Christ follower. Second, I am the mother of two beautiful children who understand exactly what their mom stands for. Third, I am the wife of a man who defends his family and their freedoms. Lastly, I am a patriot: I will hold the line for freedom and liberty in Florida.

Ö

When I think about the Proud Boys, I think of fathers, business owners and veterans. These fathers have spoken at many School Board meetings. They are concerned about the direction that their local schools are heading in, and I commend them for coming to School Board meetings.


They are making moves to get into school boards and to force the banning of CRT, LGBTQ discussions, inclusion and critical thinking in general.

They are effecting policy statewide and itís probably not just in FL

1. Not just in FL. They've been doing this for years.

School boards in the exburbs and hinterlands of the south, midwest, etc. have been full of god bothering nutters for a couple decades now.

2. The Christo-fascist movement has become a very potent political force

perhaps greater than the billionaire libertarians like Charles Koch and Rupert Murdoch, or organizations like Americans for Prosperity and the Chamber of Commerce.

8. But like Frankenstein's monster, the christo-fascists are not under Koch's control

and at this point they are organized sufficiently to be fine without him. They will set the agenda not him, and his brethren.

3. I fear for my Granddaughters

For now, they are bring home schooled. How long that will last, I am not sure. Minnesota is still a very progressive state.

9. MIL should join fight

Your MIL can help fight back by joining local groups, Support Our Schools, and Protect Our Schools, and voting for Dem endorsed school board members. We can't give up.

And starting to slip. She's very busy volunteering with hospice in that area.

6. At what point does indoctrination of children into evangelical Christianity become

child abuse?

Not just their own children but also the children of others.

14. This is all part of Charlie Kirk's plan

of taking over school boards all across the country in order to indoctrinate kids into fascism and white supremacy.
This is why we need people to run at every level of government.
This is an emergency and unless you want kids being taught to question the Holocaust & thinking "Nazi lives matter!" we need to organize.

This problem is much deeper and much more entrenched most are even aware of or could imagine.


Charlie Kirk's Turning Points USA (TPUSA) is a fascist white nationalist entity. Literally.
There's absolutely no debating that fact and they are highly organized.
In fact, they even released a sort of "hit list" on their website of many school districts they've targeted.
I won't link it here but here's a screenshot. There's many listed.



There's a great article over on KOS about this happening.
the RWNJ project to take over "my" school board is about reinstating Jim Crow and Phil McCracken

I urge you all to read it.

Lastly, I urge you all to get involved. Run for a local school board if you're physically able to do so.
I mean it. We need HELP badly.

15. This is what I've told people for years

 

Drumpf was a fluke. Most of the fascists work their way up to the system to become governors, representatives and senators that make our lives a living hell. They start on the school board, or the city council, or a county supervisor, then work their way on up. So, along with the harm they do in the short-term by being on the school board and pushing hate, there's also the fact it's a stepping stone to a bigger platform and being able to create more hate.

The secret is to stop them at the bottom. Keep them from getting elected to the school board or the city council. Stop them before they can even step onto the first rung of the latter. Stopping them now prevents them from hurting us now and hurting us down the road when they have a resume and a string of victories.
