Does your child belong to you?
Last week, during a Virginia gubernatorial debate, Democrat Terry McAuliffe said, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”
Here’s the context: an upset parent in Fairfax County showed up to a school board meeting with two books she had pulled from her child’s high school library. The books were shockingly graphic – far beyond pornography – and even contained explicit pedophilia. When she read from the book, the board members asked her to stop because the content was so deeply disgusting.
But McAuliffe said, “I’m not going to let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decisions.”
Under a McAuliffe regime, the child rape books can stay, in other words.
Parents are rightfully angry. Over the past 19 months, parents got to see up close what is happening – or rather, not happening – in their schools. They’re showing up at school board meetings angry about revolting books in the library or about critical race theory or about other woke nonsense taught to their children.
They’re angry that schools stayed closed
