Tyranny: Concerned Parents Arrested After School Board Cuts Off Comments on Trans, CRT Policies

Western Journal

Two Virginia parents protesting critical race theory and transgender policy proposals at their children’s schools were arrested Tuesday during a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board.

The public comment session was held so parents could voice their concerns over the teaching of CRT as well as a new policy on “transgender and gender-expansive students.”

Instead, the board ended the meeting midway and two parents were arrested.

A total of 259 people had signed up to offer public comments, but the meeting was shut down after just 51 had spoken, according to Fox News.

Ian Prior, a father of two students and a spokesman for the parent advocacy group Fight for Schools, slammed the board for refusing to allow parents to have a say in how their children are educated on controversial topics such as critical race theory and transgenderism.

Prior told Fox News that it’s imperative for parents to “get a seat at the table” to help shape what their children learn in the classroom.

Otherwise, schools become vehicles for the mass brainwashing of children with destructive left-wing propaganda.



The brouhaha at the Loudoun County School Board meeting came after former Republican state Sen. Dick Black slammed the board for suspending teacher Tanner Cross in May for stating at a school board meeting that he doesn’t believe “a biological boy can be a girl and vice-versa.”

Two weeks ago, a judge ordered Cross’ school to reinstate him, saying his statements were constitutionally protected free speech under the First Amendment.

After Black criticized the board for its vindictive punishment, several audience members cheered.

The school board members then got upset and called a short recess. After they returned, the board announced that it had voted 9-0 to end the public comments session.

Black also blasted the board for “having a dark history of suppressing free speech.”

The parents at the meeting were upset that the board abruptly ended the session and shouted “Shame on you!” at board members.

Numerous parents sang the national anthem to protest what they considered the board’s infringement on their free speech rights.

According to Ned Ryun, the CEO of conservative activist group American Majority, one of the parents who was arrested was Jon Tigges, a retired Air Force veteran.

“This is appalling and Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman should be ashamed of himself,” Ryun tweeted.

Tensions have been building for months in wealthy Loudon County amid escalating parental objections to the indoctrination of critical race theory in schools.

Democrats and their media lapdogs falsely claim that only white parents and politicians oppose critical race theory, but many others also object to the divisive instruction.

In May, a black mom torpedoed CRT at another Loudon County school board meeting, saying the hateful left-wing propaganda is similar to the racist brainwashing employed by the Ku Klux Klan and Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

“CRT is not an honest dialogue,” Shawntel Cooper said. “It is a tactic that was used by Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan on slavery very many years ago to dumb down my ancestors so we could not think for ourselves.”

Cooper also berated the board for using classrooms to brainwash students with partisan propaganda.

“We don’t want your political advertisement to divide our children or belittle them,” she said. “Think twice before you indoctrinate such racist theories.”

Critical race theory is irrational disinformation that has no place in schools or the workplace.

With the nation imploding under Democratic government control, it’s encouraging that parents are fighting back to protect their children from being programmed like left-wing robots.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

Western Journal

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
