Governor Won’t Condemn Explicit Books in Schools
We have to expose and remove this kind of evil in our schools. Let’s pray for leaders who will protect kids, not harm and indoctrinate them.
From The Federalist. Michigan Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer refused to condemn the pervasion of sexually explicit material in taxpayer-funded public schools during a debate on Tuesday, as parents throughout the state continue to fight for greater oversight in education.
The moment came roughly halfway through the debate between Whitmer and GOP gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon, when both candidates were asked by one of the debate moderators how they would handle the issue of controversial materials in public school libraries. Dixon, who has made parental rights a major focus of her campaign, emphasized that what parents are concerned about is “sexual content” and “pornography” in schools and called out Whitmer for her continued silence on the issue. …
When given the chance to offer a rebuttal to Dixon, who slammed the Democrat governor for refusing to “stand with parents,” Whitmer bizarrely attempted to change the conversation to gun control.
“Do you really think books are more dangerous than guns?” Whitmer asked. “Do you really think that books pose a greater danger to our kids than gun violence does? Mrs. Dixon is trying to distract us.”
Whitmer’s refusal to condemn sexually explicit materials in Michigan schools is unsurprising given that her Department of Education was busted last month for actively encouraging educators to facilitate the sexual transition of schoolchildren behind their parents’ backs. In a series of unearthed slideshows and videos, officials recruited by Michigan’s Education Department are shown instructing teachers on elements of radical gender theory and how to conceal children’s proclaimed “sexual identity” and “pronouns” from their parents. …
