Fox News reports that the communist revolutionary Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement’s “Week of Action” was observed in schools from Washington state to Massachusetts from January 31 – February 4, promoting BLM’s “13 Guiding Principles” and leaving parents outraged.
Those principles include “Globalism,” “Queer Affirming,” “Trans Affirming,” and “Black Villages.” Regarding the latter, BLM’s website states: “We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, and especially ‘our’ children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.”
One of the lessons, offered to grades as early as kindergarten in Dekalb County, Georgia, was called “Looking at Race and Racial Identity in Children’s Books.” Another lesson entitled “The Truth About Voting” aimed to “educate” schoolchildren about “some common myths about voting today” and to encourage them to think about “who [sic] these myths might benefit.”
An alarmed father emailed members of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District, stating “[I’m] very concerned that the Black Lives Matter political movement has trojan-horsed their way into Black History education at Webster Elementary. BLM is a divisive and radical fringe group that includes anti-American, anti-Israel (OUR Jewish homeland and that of proud Jewish people), antisemetic [sic] and racist propaganda.”
Fact check: true.
He added that BLM is “unequivocally a racist political movement that goes against many of our family values.”
Fact check: true.
“We need to get activism out of schools and spend critical class time on academics,” said Asra Nomani, vice president of investigations for Parents Defending Education.
