Being ‘woke’ is a virtue but waking up is a threat

By Deborah DeGroff

Attorney General Merrick Garland was grilled last month about his now infamous memo labeling parents who voice their concerns at school board meetings as terrorists. No contrition, no regrets, no apologies, and no rescinding his epistle.

Why is Garland digging in his heels? Could it be that after the myriad decades of gradually shaping and molding the worldviews of Americans through public education, our citizens are beginning to read the handwriting on the wall?

Could it be that parents are waking up while there is still an opportunity to jump out of the FROG POT?

Have the puppet masters overplayed their hand?

Tragically, we usually do end up playing into their hands. Maybe they already knew parents would finally rise up, or perhaps this took them by surprise. Whether the domestic terrorist label was waiting in the wings for such a time as this, or whether it was in quick response to an issue they needed to squelch, it is now on the table. Only time will tell if this comes back to bite them.

Concerned parents have always voiced their opinions at school meetings. A sad excuse for a math curriculum may not be illegal, but a parent still has the right to object to it. In the matter of library books, it makes no difference whether it is lawful to have these books in the school libraries or not. The issue is that these parents have the right to object and voice their displeasure — sometimes passionately.

Quoting the content of some of these books has alarmed the public. Few realized that their children were being deliberately sexualized in the schoolhouse. Some parents were aware of the comprehensive sex education being forced upon their children in lieu of teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic, but had no idea about the books that either established or reinforced these teachings.

As expected, the experts with the lengthy pedigrees are already out in full force explaining that these parents are not bright enough to understand the educational value of such smut.

We’ve all heard the phrase, “No one knows what goes on behind closed doors.” Public schools are a perfect illustration of this.

Hold the puppet masters’ feet to the fire. Do not allow a celebrity scandal or even a natural disaster to make this disappear . . . but, DO NOT lose sight of what the PMs were trying to silence in the first place — parents who were effectively announcing to the world what the children are being taught and exposed to in the schoolhouse.
