Congressman Says Charlotte Schools Pushing Anti-Gun Agenda, Demands Federal Investigation

Published

on

It’s no secret that public schools in our modern society are less about providing a quality education to children as a means of equipping them to function as well adjusted adults and has become about indoctrinating them to become loyal wards of the state.

We’ve seen this time and time again, especially in the gun control debate. Right after the tragic shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, a national movement of young people held a March for Our Lives rally, geared toward pressuring elected officials into creating legislation that would limit the Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens.

Part of the protest was a school walk-out, an activity many educational facilities actually encouraged. If that isn’t indoctrination, what is?

Congressman Robert Pittenger recently spoke out against the anti-gun agenda being pushed by public schools in Charlotte, demanding U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos investigate the matter.

Here’s more from the Charlotte Observer:

His prime example: Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ reaction to a principal’s videotaped remarks about gun culture, delivered during a student “walkout” at Collinswood Language Academy on April 20 to demand safer schools. Student organizers and several parents said the impromptu comments, which interrupted a guest speaker, were bizarre and inappropriate.

In response to a Charlotte Observer query, CMS said that “appropriate actions have and will be taken to address concerns regarding this incident.”

“Incident? An educator shared a different viewpoint with her students and encouraged them to get to know her. Quick! Call the thought police,” Pittenger wrote in a weekly column for The Robesonian newspaper.

Pittenger, a Republican whose 9th District includes Charlotte, wrote that he has heard other reports of Charlotte administrators helping plan anti-gun protests, failing to inform parents and forcing students to attend those events even if they wanted to opt out.

At the end of the day, what’s clear is that there is most definitely an agenda being pushed on students in public schools and it’s without question progressive in origin.

Schools are not supposed to be teaching children what to think, but how to think. Equipping them to engage in critical thinking, how to formulate their views in appropriate mediums of expression, and how to engage in a civil debate with individuals who hold different views from their own.

That along with basic reading, writing, and mathematics, is all that students should be learning.

If politics are going to be brought into the classroom, then both sides of an issue need to be respectfully represented and given equal care and concern when brought up as part of class discussions.

That simply isn’t what’s happening right now, which is why Pittenger and many others are so concerned with the current happenings in schools across the country.

Biden’s Age Has Democrats Drawing Up Special “Pledge” for Geriatric Joe

As of this writing, no such clause has been floated for fellow democratic candidate Bernie Sanders who is, in fact, older than Biden.

Joe Biden

With Joe Biden “not” running for President in 2020, (wink, wink), the democrats have been able to spend their time fawning over a whole gamut of Oval Office wannabes. From the bizarre antics of dirt-eating Beto O’Rourke, to the racially tone deaf lies of Kamala Harris, the democratic field for our next presidential contest is rife with unintentional humor. And that’s before Joe Biden has even officially announced his presidency.  Make no mistake about it; he’s running, but the political PR firm pulling the elderly Biden’s strings have likely warned the former VP about announcing too early. Biden’s “slip of the tongue” was a cheeky way to gauge interest in his potential bid, and belied the longtime DC dweller’s true intentions. The democrats, however, have had a bit of a trepidation about a Biden candidacy, often citing his 76 years on this planet as a detriment.  Now, they’re taking their old-Joe ageism to the next level. According to a Thursday New York Times report, Biden’s advisers are discussing “a possible pledge to serve only one term” and framing Biden’s 2020 campaign “as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country.” Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.” This news comes just days after leaked reports that Biden could be considering Stacey Abrams as a possible running mate, hoping to announce both candidacies at once. Abrams is known for her contentious loss in the 2018 Georgia Gubernatorial race, and for her participation decades ago in a flag-burning protest regarding Confederate symbolism on the Peach State’s flag.

Rosenstein Prepares the Democrats for a Major Let-Down in Mueller Report

Rod’s latest, emphatic characterization of Mueller’s final report has taken the wind out of the democratic sails in a BIG way.

Rod Rosenstein

President Donald Trump has been absolutely emphatic in his denouncement of the Robert Mueller-led “Russiagate” probe. “No collusion!”.  “It’s a hoax!”. We’ve heard these sentiments over and over again, and, as Mueller prepares to conclude year two of his wide-ranging investigation, the President has been spot-on so far.  Mueller’s only successes have come from charging low-level, former Trump acquaintances with crimes unconnected to the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin, or the Russian government. We also have learned from expert legal observers that we should be expecting the final report to drop sometime soon, based on a number of personnel changes and DC insiders. Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General will be staying on to provide a “heat shield” for the final report…his words, not ours. Rosenstein also detailed a very dreary reality for the democrats in a new letter, explicitly explaining why they shouldn’t be getting their hopes up for some slam dunk against the sitting President. In the letter, Rosenstein makes it clear he believes the Department of Justice will not – and cannot without violating long-standing Department of Justice policy – include disparaging or incriminating information about anybody who has not been charged with a crime. “Punishing wrongdoers through judicial proceedings is only one part of the Department’s mission,” Rosenstein wrote. “We also have a duty to prevent the disclosure of information that would unfairly tarnish people who are not charged with crimes.” According to inside sources, the investigation itself will no longer be seeking indictments, ergo, with the President not being indicted, Robert Mueller would be shirking his prosecutorial creed in releasing any information disparaging Donald Trump. Rosenstein is emphatic on this point: “In fact, disclosing uncharged allegations against American citizens without a law-enforcement need is considered to be a violation of a prosecutor’s trust.” And this isn’t some special,…
