A Virginia Circuit Court Judge has reversed the firing of a Loudoun County School District teacher who was sanctioned by the district after slamming gender politics at a school board meeting.

Judge James Plowman from Virginia’s 20th Judicial Circuit, issued a temporary injunction against the Loudoun County School Board Tuesday requiring it to reinstate teacher Byron Tanner Cross back to his station at Leesburg Elementary School through the end of December.

Criss angered the school board last month when he told them during an open meeting that he opposed the efforts to force left-wing transgenderism on school kids.

“It’s not my intention to hurt anyone, but there are certain truths that we must face,” Cross told the board.

“I love all of my students, but I will never lie to them regardless of the consequences. I’m a teacher but I serve God first and I will not affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa because it’s against my religion. It’s lying to a child, it’s abuse to a child, and it’s sinning against our God,” he added.

Cross also slammed the school’s personal pronouns policy.

The school board claimed that a few parents sent them letters saying they didn’t want their kids exposed to Mr. Cross, so they tried to get rid of him. But the judge noted that the school was not in the right to suspend him.

Per JustTheNews:

Judge Plowman said it was clear Cross was speaking “as a citizen” outside his school position, off-hours, at the invitation of the school board, which asked for public comment on the proposed policies even while claiming they were required by state law.

His subject “can only be described as a ‘matter of public concern,'” including because they referenced the very laws and policies the school board said it must follow, the order said. Plowman rejected the district’s claim that the religious basis for Cross’s comments made them an unprotected “private dispute.”

The district didn’t provide evidence for many of its claims about the alleged disruption caused by Cross’s comments, the judge said. He noted that four of the five family emails to the district were sent “well after” Cross’s scheduled morning duty, suggesting “no actual disruption” when Cross was reassigned to other duties.

In an elementary school of several hundred students, “the Court views the magnitude of parental complaints to be de minimis” and could not be cited to justify the district’s actions.

The judge also said that the district’s actions “adversely affected Cross’s constitutionally protected speech.” He added that that the school’s actions were “unnecessary and vindictive.”

“Affirming the unconstitutional action” against Cross, “which has silenced others from speaking publicly” about gender identity issues, “serves the public interest,” the judge’s order said. “Governmental bodies being held in check for violating a citizen’s constitutional rights, serves the public interest.”

The Posh Get Sloshed! Affluent Greenwich Village Overrun by Drunks and Drugs

Another Democrat-run city turns chaotic.

Published

There has been plenty of talk of late about the great liberal migration, in which cities like New York and San Fransisco are hemorrhaging citizens on account of Democratic policies. The policies often see crime and taxes spike simultaneously, which shouldn’t make sense at all.  If the government is getting more money, there should be less trouble, right? Wrong.  And even in the ritziest parts of some of these liberal cities, the situation is getting out of hand. New York City’s Greenwich Village is home to movie stars and other big-name celebrities – and lately, a host of crime and violence issues both inside a local park and on the neighborhood’s streets. Just Wednesday, the New York Police Department (NYPD) announced it was looking for a man who broke into a Greenwich Village apartment and rubbed his penis on a 10-year-old girl’s feet. The man is believed to have slipped into the apartment through a fire escape around 1 a.m. on June 11, police said. The girl awoke to find the man standing at the edge of her bed. And that’s not all: Locals also told the Post drug use has been more prominent than they’ve ever seen. “I know drugs have been in Washington Square Park for a long time, but I have never seen anything like this before,” neighborhood resident Jennifer Nyp told the news site. Ruth Wyatt, who has lived near the park for more than two decades, told the Post: “The situation in the park and its surroundings has gotten out of control.” At the beginning of June, the news of crime and rampant drug use inside the famed park prompted the NYPD to move the park’s midnight curfew up to 10 p.m. But chaos ensued between people within the park and police who arrived to…

Kim Jong Un Threatens Military Battle with USA in Latest Rant

The predictable escalation received little response on the world’s stage, however.

Kim Jong Un

The unhinged nature of North Korea was on display again this week, as “Supreme” Leader Kim Jong Un began his nearly-predictable threats against the United States. Kim, and those who came before him, have long employed a strategy of raising a large fuss on the world stage to get attention, and then backing down from those inane threats only if they get something in return.  Often, the requests have to do with lifting sanctions or aid, as the tiny hermit kingdom is far from capable of even feeding its own people. And so, as was always going to happen, North Korea put on their war pants this week and started strutting around. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered his government to be prepared for both dialogue and confrontation with the Biden administration — but more for confrontation, state media reported Friday, days after the United States and others urged the North to abandon its nuclear program and return to talks. Kim’s statement indicates he’ll likely push to strength his nuclear arsenal and increase pressure on Washington to give up what North Korea considers a hostile U.S. policy, though he’ll also prepare for talks to resume, some experts say. Why now? Earlier this week, leaders of the Group of Seven wealthy nations issued a statement calling for the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and “the verifiable and irreversible abandonment” North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs. They called on North Korea to engage and resume dialogue and respect human rights conditions. Sung Kim, the top U.S. official on North Korea, is to visit Seoul on Saturday for a trilateral meeting with South Korean and Japanese officials. His travel emphasizes the importance of the trilateral cooperation in working toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, the State Department said Thursday. Kim…
