CRT UPDATE: Parents showing their strength

By Mike Huckabee

Tuesday’s school board meeting in Loudoun County, Virginia, a wealthy suburb of Washington, DC, became chaotic and must have caused great discomfort among board members who support the teaching of Critical Race Theory. We know because they cut the meeting short, filed out of the room, and had it declared an “unlawful assembly” (!) by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Department. As we reported Wednesday morning, two attendees were arrested after the meeting hall was cleared simply for choosing to stick around, as they hadn’t had their opportunity to speak.

https://thefederalist.com/2021/06/23/two-arrested-after-loudoun-county-school-board-shut-down-public-comment-over-opposition-to-indoctrination/

One of those arrested, retired Air Force veteran and small business owner Jon Tigges –- not the one who was tackled to the floor –- appeared on Wednesday’s TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT.

In his lead-in, Tucker pointed out that kids in Loudoun County public schools aren’t allowed to read TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD any more. (Note: this is one of the greatest books ever written about race, but leftists misinterpret and reject it as a sort of “white savior” story. Also, it was written by a white lady, Harper Lee.) “Instead,” he continued, “they’re assigned pornographic novels and told that America is an evil, racist place.”

What Loudoun County’s divisive curriculum is doing, paradoxically, is bringing together parents of differing political stripes. It seems most parents don’t WANT their kids to grow up racist –- who knew? So when the board agreed to solicit public comments, they got more than they bargained for. Speakers reminded the board that it works for them –- that Loudoun County residents are their bosses and will return them to the private sector at the earliest possible moment.

As Mr. Tigges explained to Tucker, he didn’t know why he was arrested, because he was in a place “where free speech has to happen.” Where else are you going to air your grievances about school than at a school board meeting? He noted that it was on public land, in a public auditorium, and they had specifically been invited to a public forum to give public comment.

“And at the end of all that,” he said, “every single person there, all 500 parents, had their First Amendment rights trampled on by the Loudoun County school board and its superintendent.”

The building was reserved until 7 p.m., and Tigges was arrested at around 5:45, he said. But “the school board heard something they didn’t like,” which he said was applause for former state Sen. Dick Black. That, apparently, is when they shut the meeting down.

According to Tigges (and there is video to back him up), there was no violence happening, nothing crazy. “People stayed there [after the adjournment], they actually started singing [“The Star-Spangled Banner], and then “if the school board didn’t want to hear it,” they thought they would continue sharing their thoughts with one another, in an orderly and peaceful way, just as if the board were there. So they lined up at the microphone as they would’ve done in front of the board. Tigges said that both sides were allowed to speak, and no one in line to speak was involved in any misbehavior.

But then, abruptly, their meeting was declared an unlawful assembly. He believes the threats of arrest and the rough take-down of that other man were, as far as he could tell, a “complete leftist diversionary tactic that was pre-planned.”

Tigges was released later after receiving a trespassing summons.

He called the First Amendment “the most sacred of all of our rights.” To shut down free speech requires an enormous amount of justification, he said. I get the impression he’s willing to get himself quietly arrested as many times as it takes for him to exercise that right.

The Loudoun County School Board is expected to vote on their new proposals on August 10. There has been no word on whether they will entertain public comments again before they vote, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

Here’s another account of the meeting, from LEGAL INSURRECTION.

https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/06/critical-race-theory-loudoun-county-school-board-meeting-erupts-two-arrested/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=critical-race-theory-loudoun-county-school-board-meeting-erupts-two-arrested

So that’s where we are with the Loudoun County schools. Let’s look at Iowa, where some news on Twitter (the censors missed it) tells us that, according to leaked documents, Iowa teachers are forced to classify “Make America Great Again” as “racism” and “white supremacy.” The teachers have to participate in CRT training, at taxpayers’ expense.

Since Trump won Iowa in 2016 by 9 points, I guess the idea is to tell Iowans how racist they are.

Scroll down at this link to see the “Racism Pyramid.” You’ll find attributes such as “colorblindness,” “celebrating Columbus Day” and “bootstrap theory” listed as signs of racism, right along with MAGA.

And here’s a good resource if you have kids or grandkids in college or soon to be. CRITICAL RACE THEORY IN HIGHER EDUCATION has stories from campuses around the country.

https://criticalrace.org

Finally, in an EPOCH TV interview, Dr. Carol Swain, who was co-chair of President Trump’s 1776 Commission, explains how teaching Critical Race Theory may violate the Constitution (1st and 14th Amendments) as well as federal civil rights legislation.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/critical-race-theory-may-violate-civil-rights-act-interview-with-dr-carol-swain_3859988.html

Much of what she says is summarized in print in this EPOCH TIME “premium” article.

If you don’t have “premium” access, I’ll summarize: Dr. Swain, a former professor of political science and law at Princeton and Vanderbilt Universities, says the demonization of one group of people because of their skin color is discriminatory. She says white people being forced to apologize for their race and confess to racism because of their race are protected by the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

She said something that will shock leftists; namely that “white people are protected in the same way that black people are by civil rights laws.” Bullying and shaming people because of their color creates a hostile environment and might do psychological harm to school kids. White children are being bullied and told to accept guilt over their ancestors’ oppression of black people.

Also, the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment is supposed to guarantee certain protections to EVERYONE.

Dr. Swain had some great ideas for dealing with this. One way is to go public, perhaps in publications such as THE COLLEGE FIX and CAMPUS REFORM. And at a time when so many are ripping down America and condemning her past, she offered some inspiring words about America’s history: “I think America has been so important to the world, that the true history of its founding, along with the mistakes that were made and just how we address those mistakes, are things that enrich people...The true story of America is a story of blacks and whites working together to overcome the tragic part of our history.”

By the way, Dr. Swain was born in the segregated South as 1 of 12 children, dropped out of high school to get married at 16, and had 3 small children before she was 21. She got back on the road to higher learning with a high school equivalency degree and community college, going on to earn five degrees.

Official: Rachel Maddow Isn't News

By Mike Huckabee

An Obama-appointed judge let MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow off the hook on a defamation lawsuit against her by the conservative news network, One America News. Among other Russia-obsessed comments, Maddow said OAN was “literally…paid Russian propaganda.” They literally are not, so you might think that’s defamatory. But the judge ruled that Maddow’s viewers understand that her show isn’t news, it’s just her opinion, so she dismissed the defamation lawsuit.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2021/06/22/judge-rules-rachel-maddows-show-isnt-news-n1456306

I think the judge is wrong: Maddow’s viewers should be aware that her show is just exaggerated, hyperpartisan hooey, but judging from some of the insanity I see on Twitter, I’m afraid that most of them actually believe it’s news. Still, while I’m sorry OAN didn’t prevail, as I think they deserved to, at least we now have an official court ruling that nothing you hear on Rachel Maddow’s show deserves to be taken seriously.


Federal Judge Throws Lawsuits Out

By Mike Huckabee

On Tuesday, a federal judge in Washington threw out lawsuits by BLM and the ACLU against former President Trump, former Attorney General Bill Barr and other officials over protesters being cleared out of Lafayette Park last year.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/trump-wins-federal-judge-tosses-most-of-blms-claims-against-president-bill-barr-us-officials-over-lafayette-park-incident

The judge ruled that Barr and the Park Police chief were acting within the scope of their duties and so were immune from lawsuits. Also, the BLM organization wasn’t directly harmed so it didn’t have standing to sue. And the claim that Trump and Barr conspired to remove the protesters so Trump could do a photo op was “too speculative” and relied on “conclusory allegations” (actually, it relied on a Washington Post story that was recently exposed as fake news.)

The judge also denied the protesters’ request for an injunction against further action on the part of the federal government – in other words, barring them from being arrested in the future. He said, “The plaintiffs’ claims of impending future harm are too speculative to confer standing to seek an injunction.”

So they lost in the past, present and future. I’d say that pretty well runs the table.


“Keep Taking The Bums To Court” News

By Mike Huckabee

The Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in favor of a former high school cheerleader who was punished by her public school for posting a profanity-laced caption on Snapchat when she was off school grounds.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/06/23/politics/supreme-court-first-amendment-cheerleader/index.html?ofs=fbia

It seems like a somewhat frivolous case (and I don’t like being forced to defend profanity), but it has major implications. As Justice Breyer wrote:

"It might be tempting to dismiss (the student's) words as unworthy of the robust First Amendment protections discussed herein. But sometimes it is necessary to protect the superfluous in order to preserve the necessary.” He said that students "do not shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression even at the schoolhouse gate. But we have also made clear that courts must apply the First Amendment in light of the special characteristics of the school environment. The school itself has an interest in protecting a student's unpopular expression, especially when the expression takes place off campus. America's public schools are the nurseries of democracy.”

That’s an important ruling because lately, too many schools have just seemed like nurseries, with the most immature brats in charge. By protecting the right to frivolous speech off-campus, the SCOTUS is also protecting serious speech. Let this be a warning shot to leftist school officials who are trying to monitor social media to bully and silence students who express non-“approved” political opinions off-campus. It’s past time they learned that they have no more power to silence free speech off-campus than they do on-campus.


Support For Voter ID Laws Hasn't Budged

By Mike Huckabee

The same Monmouth University poll that found that more minorities than whites want voter ID laws (but large majorities of both groups want them) also found that one-third of Americans believe Joe Biden won the presidency thanks to vote fraud. That includes 63% of Republicans and those leaning GOP.

https://www.westernjournal.com/poll-one-third-americans-believe-joe-biden-won-election-voter-fraud/

Those numbers haven’t budged since November, despite the media’s insistence that it’s a false conspiracy theory, a “big lie” and an attack on democracy. You could draw a lot of conclusions from this. Maybe it’s a testament to just how divided on partisan lines we are. Or maybe these voters distrust the vote because the Dems and the media dost protest too much, with their all-out war on any attempts to examine the 2020 ballots and voting machines. Or maybe they just remember how the Dems spent four years claiming that Russia stole the 2016 election for Trump, and they just enjoy turning the tables.

Or maybe, as this article points out, they know there’s more evidence of voter fraud (even if it’s not enough to have changed the election results) than there is of “voter suppression,” yet the media and the Democrats also insist that’s real and a genuine danger to democracy.

There’s only one thing I know for certain: all this never-ending turmoil, suspicion and divisiveness wouldn’t still be going on if Biden and Trump had joined together to call for a transparent, bipartisan investigation of the vote to get to the truth and settle all the questions and accusations before Biden took office. If only someone had suggested that! Oh, wait, I remember now: I did.

Round-up of News from America’s Poster City For Liberal Rule, Portland, Oregon

By Mike Huckabee

The head of Portland’s Police Association says morale among officers is “as bad as it’s ever been.”

https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-police-association-leader-morale-officers-bad

Due to lack of available officers, Portland Police have been ordered not to make traffic stops for certain types of moving violations. This is being called part of an effort to “reimagine our public safety system.” Yes, try to imagine that the city is safe. You’ll need a very active imagination, since the city’s homicide rate is up 800% since the leftist city leaders slashed the police budget by $16 million.

https://www.westernjournal.com/portland-discovered-black-people-commit-minor-traffic-offences-decided-stop-enforcing/

It’s so bad for police that you might say there’s only one job in Portland that’s harder, and that’s running the tourism bureau and trying to convince people to visit. FYI: If I were trying to get people to overlook all the crime and rioters, I probably wouldn’t mention the phrase, “cutting edge.”

Taxpayers Will Pay

By Mike Huckabee

Despite President Biden’s campaign promise that nobody making less than $400,000 a year will pay a dime more in taxes under his plan, an analysis by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center estimates that it would result in higher taxes for nearly 60% of Americans.

https://www.westernjournal.com/analysis-60-americans-will-forced-pay-taxes-bidens-plan/

That’s because, as I keep trying to tell people, higher taxes on corporations are treated as an expense of doing business, just like supplies and labor. And those costs are passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices. Corporations don’t pay taxes, they collect them…from you.

Simple example: if the government taxes the company that makes Snickers bars, your Snickers bar will cost you more. Democrats will claim they’re making the corporation pay, but they won’t eat the tax. You will.

And speaking of everyday Americans having to eat the cost of Biden’s policies: Prof. Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit reports that a restaurant owner friend told him food costs have skyrocketed just this week, with the price of cooking oil more than doubling. Add this to the extra costs of trying to compete with enhanced unemployment to get workers plus the higher shipping costs due to rising gas prices, and we’ll all be forced to eat the high cost of bad Democrat policies.

    Democrats or the far left Democrats are a one-way street. Great newsletter. Thank you for the poll results. Biden's address yesterday was nothing about nothing. We need bail reform and do away with catch & release ASAP. He has blinders on in reference to the destruction in our cities and all the attacks on innocent people trying to live their lives. What's scary is his mental state and the thought that Kamala could become President! What a sad state of affairs.

    It is so horrible to have people like DeBlasio Pelosi Schumer Biden and all these corrupt connections making horrendous dangerous and the most stupid decisions in their hands and Americans get beaten up by their decisions and the people that make the decisions are never affected by the Shitffty results. People need to understand who they elect to grant such power biden voters need to that do not rely on Government assistance ( suburb women) better check their college education at the door when they vote. College Educated women make HUUUUGE voting mistakes voting for Frauds like biden, so stupid thats what college teaches, If these women have children they also are going to be taught how and what to HATE.

    Given your Texas poll results and almost every other American poll on what this Left led Administration is doing, is it not clear that the current Democratic leaders are making decisions that are diametrically opposed to the will of the PEOPLE (their bosses) of this country?

    Secondly, for the Loudoun County School Board to declare a public assemblage unlawful all of a sudden after they themselves set up its public speakers and the entire forum really does smack of a “complete leftist diversionary tactic that was pre-planned.” That School Board and their Superintendent need to be replaced by citizens who understand that they work for the very people whom they are arresting and denigrating.

But sometimes it is necessary to protect the superfluous in order to preserve the necessary.” He said that students "do not shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression even at the schoolhouse gate. But we have also made clear that courts must apply the First Amendment in light of the special characteristics of the school environment. The school itself has an interest in protecting a student's unpopular expression, especially when the expression takes place off campus. America's public schools are the nurseries of democracy.”

That’s an important ruling because lately, too many schools have just seemed like nurseries, with the most immature brats in charge. By protecting the right to frivolous speech off-campus, the SCOTUS is also protecting serious speech. Let this be a warning shot to leftist school officials who are trying to monitor social media to bully and silence students who express non-“approved” political opinions off-campus. It’s past time they learned that they have no more power to silence free speech off-campus than they do on-campus.


Support For Voter ID Laws Hasn't Budged

By Mike Huckabee

The same Monmouth University poll that found that more minorities than whites want voter ID laws (but large majorities of both groups want them) also found that one-third of Americans believe Joe Biden won the presidency thanks to vote fraud. That includes 63% of Republicans and those leaning GOP.

https://www.westernjournal.com/poll-one-third-americans-believe-joe-biden-won-election-voter-fraud/

Those numbers haven’t budged since November, despite the media’s insistence that it’s a false conspiracy theory, a “big lie” and an attack on democracy. You could draw a lot of conclusions from this. Maybe it’s a testament to just how divided on partisan lines we are. Or maybe these voters distrust the vote because the Dems and the media dost protest too much, with their all-out war on any attempts to examine the 2020 ballots and voting machines. Or maybe they just remember how the Dems spent four years claiming that Russia stole the 2016 election for Trump, and they just enjoy turning the tables.

Or maybe, as this article points out, they know there’s more evidence of voter fraud (even if it’s not enough to have changed the election results) than there is of “voter suppression,” yet the media and the Democrats also insist that’s real and a genuine danger to democracy.

There’s only one thing I know for certain: all this never-ending turmoil, suspicion and divisiveness wouldn’t still be going on if Biden and Trump had joined together to call for a transparent, bipartisan investigation of the vote to get to the truth and settle all the questions and accusations before Biden took office. If only someone had suggested that! Oh, wait, I remember now: I did.

Round-up of News from America’s Poster City For Liberal Rule, Portland, Oregon

By Mike Huckabee

The head of Portland’s Police Association says morale among officers is “as bad as it’s ever been.”

https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-police-association-leader-morale-officers-bad

Due to lack of available officers, Portland Police have been ordered not to make traffic stops for certain types of moving violations. This is being called part of an effort to “reimagine our public safety system.” Yes, try to imagine that the city is safe. You’ll need a very active imagination, since the city’s homicide rate is up 800% since the leftist city leaders slashed the police budget by $16 million.

https://www.westernjournal.com/portland-discovered-black-people-commit-minor-traffic-offences-decided-stop-enforcing/

It’s so bad for police that you might say there’s only one job in Portland that’s harder, and that’s running the tourism bureau and trying to convince people to visit. FYI: If I were trying to get people to overlook all the crime and rioters, I probably wouldn’t mention the phrase, “cutting edge.”

Taxpayers Will Pay

By Mike Huckabee

Despite President Biden’s campaign promise that nobody making less than $400,000 a year will pay a dime more in taxes under his plan, an analysis by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center estimates that it would result in higher taxes for nearly 60% of Americans.

https://www.westernjournal.com/analysis-60-americans-will-forced-pay-taxes-bidens-plan/

That’s because, as I keep trying to tell people, higher taxes on corporations are treated as an expense of doing business, just like supplies and labor. And those costs are passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices. Corporations don’t pay taxes, they collect them…from you.

Simple example: if the government taxes the company that makes Snickers bars, your Snickers bar will cost you more. Democrats will claim they’re making the corporation pay, but they won’t eat the tax. You will.

And speaking of everyday Americans having to eat the cost of Biden’s policies: Prof. Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit reports that a restaurant owner friend told him food costs have skyrocketed just this week, with the price of cooking oil more than doubling. Add this to the extra costs of trying to compete with enhanced unemployment to get workers plus the higher shipping costs due to rising gas prices, and we’ll all be forced to eat the high cost of bad Democrat policies.

    Praise the Lord for the ones who voted for the wall, and for arresting the illegal immigrants.
    What a joy that we have a state like Texas in this awful country.

    Democrats or the far left Democrats are a one-way street. Great newsletter. Thank you for the poll results. Biden's address yesterday was nothing about nothing. We need bail reform and do away with catch & release ASAP. He has blinders on in reference to the destruction in our cities and all the attacks on innocent people trying to live their lives. What's scary is his mental state and the thought that Kamala could become President! What a sad state of affairs.

    It is so horrible to have people like DeBlasio Pelosi Schumer Biden and all these corrupt connections making horrendous dangerous and the most stupid decisions in their hands and Americans get beaten up by their decisions and the people that make the decisions are never affected by the Shitffty results. People need to understand who they elect to grant such power biden voters need to that do not rely on Government assistance ( suburb women) better check their college education at the door when they vote. College Educated women make HUUUUGE voting mistakes voting for Frauds like biden, so stupid thats what college teaches, If these women have children they also are going to be taught how and what to HATE. STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    John 8:7 - So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
    Galatians 3:28 - “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
    “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” — Martin Luther King Jr.
    Throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, the United States of America became known worldwide as the great melting pot. Immigrants came to this country with the idea in their hearts and minds that they could become Americans no matter their origins.
    We are the American experiment . We all work to improve our common welfare not subvert it with a polarizing plight for the few and the malcontent . We succeed because when we fail , we look to learn from that failure and try again . We don't throw the baby out with the bath water .

    Given your Texas poll results and almost every other American poll on what this Left led Administration is doing, is it not clear that the current Democratic leaders are making decisions that are diametrically opposed to the will of the PEOPLE (their bosses) of this country?

    Secondly, for the Loudoun County School Board to declare a public assemblage unlawful all of a sudden after they themselves set up its public speakers and the entire forum really does smack of a “complete leftist diversionary tactic that was pre-planned.” That School Board and their Superintendent need to be replaced by citizens who understand that they work for the very people whom they are arresting and denigrating. What a convolution of our Democracy!

    Whatever happened with the Maricopa County recount? It was completed nine days ago but there has been no results.
