Knee-jerk Reaction at White Knoll High School

Today's The State reports that overly-sensitive White Knoll High School in the Lexington One school district has kicked out four students over a home-made video that was created off school property and off school time.

Read the article here.

The students recorded a video for Tik Tok about which White Knoll Principal Ted Daughtrey said, "the unacceptable and disturbing actions of these students negatively impact their school and all of our students ...” 

Lexington 1 superintendent Greg Little piled on with, “We strongly condemn the actions of these students. Racism, in any form, will not be tolerated by our students or staff and will be addressed immediately.”

Of course, no details were provided about what constituted "racism".

Have you noticed how, on some days, if you just blow your nose on the wrong color of Kleenex, you'll be accused of being a racist? 

Why do I think that the reaction in Lexington One will be a local lawyer's dream come true? How quickly will the parents of those four students "lawyer up" and sink their teeth into Lex One's checkbook?

I, for one, can't wait to hear how much they walk away with.

Should Caution-Parker resign?

Should Caution-Parker resign over the profanity she is accused of uttering on Richland 2 school property after the October 12th board meeting at R2i2? If she doesn't, could she be prosecuted? 

Imagine what would happen to a student who uttered those words on campus! Would he (or she) be given a "fair trial" by the superintendent and kicked out of school?

Would the board miss her? She seldom speaks up, except to second standard motions made by trustee-elect Amelia McKie. Oh, and to utter "Tough!" in response to a Motion by Trustee Scott, which had been seconded by Trustee Agostini, on that same night.

Let's see; if Caution-Parker resigned, if Holmes and McKie finally got removed from office because they are on the board illegally, and if a fourth trustee on the Squad had to resign, that would clear the way for a conservative board to bring order and professionalism back to the Richland 2 school district. After a special election, of course, to fill the four empty chairs.

Just imagine four empty chairs at the front of the room. The first order of business would have to be an emergency action to change the number required for a quorum. But could the remaining three Trustees even do that?

What would be the first thing they'd do? Run the curricula of the District through a sieve and filter out all the Critical Race Theory-type material. And get back to educating students!

She said WHAT?

Disgusting words attributed to Richland 2 school board trustee Cheryl Caution-Parker have now hit The State newspaper.

This is the trustee with "the mouth".

This is what 40 years of experience looks like - or one year of experience, 40 times.

Read all about it. Click on the story headline to read it. I was there that night (October 12) but did not personally hear Caution-Parker. When I heard about it, I emailed Sheriff Lott and asked him to obtain a report from the deputy who escotted Caution-Parker and Holmes to their cars. He definitely would have heard her words.

It was definitely a contentious meeting, but the shouting that went on was inside the meeting room and among the trustees (and trustees-elect) themselves, not among the public. 

Ok, well, I got blistered by the board chair and ordered to stop speaking during public participation, but I did not shout back. 

And, after I got home, I thought about breaking out the first-aid kit and bandaging my head for a photo opp. Looking back, I should have done it. But there will always be a next time.

ICYMI: "Systemic Racism" is a pandemic

Just when you think you've heard it all, up pops something to top it.

The woke folks in Montgomery County, Maryland have been outed for really stupid thinking. "Systemic racism" joins COVID-19 to petrify and terrorize students (and teachers and parents) as a pandemic.

But the good news is Parents Are Waking Up. 

See this FoxNews article published today, November 4, about Critical Race Theory and Ibram X. Kendi's book that is "perfect" for babies up to 3 years old. Yeah, sure... Start indoctrinating them early, before they can walk, talk, read, write.

The icing on the cake is that last sentence in the article: 

"Thomas Pyle Middle School's social justice class taught students that the phrase 'Make America Great Again' was an example of 'covert white supremacy'."

This is the fight, folks. And we have to get it stopped right here.
