Florida’s ‘Anti-Woke Act’ Allows Parents To SUE Teachers Over CRT
This might not be the best means to an end that's ever been devised. A better way might be to carefully define what schools are supposed to teach at each grade level and provide a list of approved materials. Teachers should always have academic freedom to expand upon the materials provided to them by the school, but they should be careful not to be dogmatically ideological. Teachers aren't preachers, but students are curious about lots of issues and so teachers should not be afraid to answer on-topic questions raised by students.

Parent SLAMS School For Allegedly GROOMING 12-Year-Old Daughter Into Being TRANS
How much of this is exaggerated is difficult to say, but it is true that many high schools have LGBT+ clubs. The idea is to support teens going through difficult times. This specific case may be as presented here and then again it might not. The problem is that LGBT+ youth have a high suicide rate and so their needs cannot be ignored. If the teachers actually "coached" or "groomed" as claimed in this clip, then they went too far, but it's very difficult to determine what really happened from what is presented in this presentation.

shadylady: What that guy says can't really be taken at face value. He obviously wants to present the story in a way which matches his agenda. How much of this is accurate and how much of this is just his fantasy is hard to say. I'm against sex reassignment therapy of any kind before the age of eighteen and even then it's like barking up the wrong tree, but after the age of eighteen people are free to make their own mistakes.

The Decay of America
This starts out with a discussion of demographics and then it gets to CRT and how public education is being used to bring about the demise of the USA.

desertrat: That's a rather fiery presentation and it touches on the following interrelated topics, not necessarily in precisely this order. He jumps around a bit since it's all interrelated:
1) Demographics - USA on same path as was USSR before collapse
2) Active Measures - Uri Bezmenov revealed KGB plans in 1984 involving ideological subversion
3) Critical Race Theory, racial self-flagellation, Black Lives Matter
4) Vladimir Zhirinovsky - mentioned a few times throughout video
5) Putin's comments on gender reassignment of children
6) Politicization of COVID
7) News media narrative regarding race
8) Critical Race Theory - denial / evidence
9) Complaints about racist policies as terrorist threat
10) Unrelenting stream of immigration - Biden
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
Jordan Peterson wrote:I have generally found that those who consider themselves 'woke” for the want of a better word, have personal issues going on in their own lives that they find difficult or unwilling to deal with. They avoid dealing with these issues by adopting a moralistic stance on large scale social issues like climate change, black lives matter, gay rights and so on. This way they still look good and virtuous to their friends and neighbors. It appeals to their inner narcissism and has, to a degree, become a pseudo religion that makes them feel good about themselves. The more woke they are , the more righteous they become.

Satan's Waiting For Your Kid! | Illinois School Offers ‘After School Satan Club’
Is it "woke" to send your kid to an after school Satan club? Or is it something else altogether? Maybe the organization can start a business called "Little Devil's Daycare."

twister: There are some things which are prudent to avoid and there are some things which are avoided because of an exaggerated estimation of the danger. Some say that we live in an age of paranoia and that's probably a fair and accurate statement. Many dangers are vastly over-estimated while other real dangers are under-estimated. It's a sign of the times.

California teacher exposes school's woke agenda
I hear that the superintendent in Trona is forcing teachers to use teaching materials which push this woke crap in the classroom. Most of the teachers just go along with it unfortunately.
