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.

New Report Reveals Ohio Democratic Party Received $300K In Federal Coronavirus Relief Loan

The whole point of the Paycheck Protection Program that was put together earlier this year at the beginning of the lockdowns put in place due to the coronavirus was supposed to provide relief for small businesses who would be left devastated by the sudden and massive loss of income that would come about as a result of these safety measures. However, it seems the Ohio Democratic Party received a sizable chunk of cash to keep them going too. Now that doesn’t seem right, does it? via The Washington Examiner: Campaign finance reports show that the loan, amounting to $333,867, was approved by the U.S. Small Business Administration on April 30, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. In May, a tweet critical of the Trump administration’s program was posted on the group’s official Twitter account. “With so many small businesses shut out from receiving PPP loans ⁠— while nearly 300 publicly traded companies received more than $1 billion from the program⁠ — local governments across Ohio are stepping up to help small businesses, which are often the center of their communities,” the tweet read. https://twitter.com/OHDems/status/1262735869628297217 A spokeswoman for the party came out and actually attempted to defend their receiving the federal funds by saying 20 jobs were saved. “The purpose of the Paycheck Protection Program is to help organizations cover payroll and benefits, and that’s precisely what it has been used for ⁠— to ensure our entire team continued to work and earn a paycheck and retain their health coverage during an unprecedented public health crisis,” Kirstin Alvanitakis said. The Ohio Republican Party slammed the Democrats for taking the money. Evan Machan, the Ohio GOP spokesman, said, “We did not need to apply for these funds. Under the leadership of Chairman Timken, our financial situation is strong, and we were never at…

Trump’s Campaign Developing New Strategy To Draw Big Crowds To Rallies; ‘Can’t Have Repeat Of Tulsa’

Published

on

President Trump’s rally that was held in Tulsa, Oklahoma was super hyped up by media outlets across the Internet with expectations of crowd attendance being astronomically high. As it turns out, not many folks actually showed up to the event, something that deflated Trump’s campaign a bit and has now prompted them to change direction. The new strategy the campaign is looking to employ includes increased safety measures to make folks feel comfortable enough to attend the event, as many believe fear of the coronavirus prevented many individuals from attending the Tulsa rally. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “We can’t have a repeat of Tulsa,” a campaign official told NBC News, referring to Trump’s upcoming rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, this Saturday. The president’s rallies resume as many states grapple with upticks in coronavirus cases, prompting state and local leadership to halt reopenings and introduce new public health orders to prevent the spread of the virus. Unlike the indoor venue the campaign chose for its Tulsa rally, the president will make his appearance in an open-air airport tarmac hangar this weekend. Health experts have said outdoor events are less risky than large gatherings indoors, but also stress that the virus can still be spread. An official from the White House noted that Trump understands that people may not come out the way they did in 2016 due to fears over catching COVID-19. When the rally was held in Tulsa, masks were offered to those who showed up to the event, but many of them didn’t bother to wear them. Several staffers and a couple of prominent attendees ended up testing positive for the coronavirus. Masks are apparently going to be strongly encouraged at the New Hampshire rally, though the campaign said they will not be mandated.
